identified a my space page that belongs to cetin and has pictures of posing with firearms. >> police say tracking him down through footage. the arrest coming just as a prayer service being held for the five victims. abc's neal karlinsky is right there with the latest this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: that's right, they were able to zero in on the suspect through tips and security cameras here in the mall parking lot, able to identify his car and track it to him t hiding out, but simply walking around. the arrest happened without a single shot fired. >> right there walking. unby detained. >> suspected cascade mall shooter 20-year-old car can cetin a recent high school graduate and grocery bagger. according to his facebook page. >> i saw an individual walking northbound on the sidewalk and i instantly recognized, did an abrupt u-turn, pulled my gun and took the individual into
>> they found him in a community 40 minutes away from the shooting. officers spotted him simply walking down the street. >> he said nothing. he was kind of zombie-like. he did not have a weapon with him. he had a leather satchel. appeared to be a computer inside the bag. >> police arrested cetin. almost exactly 24 hours after the shooting rampage inside this macy's. four women and one man shot to death. near the makeup department. a my space page shows pictures of him posing with various firearms. hours earlier police released new images from inside the mall. cetin they say in a t-shirt and shorts and nothing to make him stand out before allegedly opening fire. >> three to four down inside. i've got one rifle left in this area. >> to see it happen 20 feet away from you is just -- it's insane to me.
i never thought that i would be in that position to be staring at somebody who was losing their life and i can't do anything about it. >> the victims range in age from a teenage cancer survivor to a senior citizen. police are looking into reports his ex-girlfriend may have worked at the macy's. but for now the motive remains unknown for now. the suspect is from turkey but a legal resident of the united states. no bel this point and the suspect will make his first court appearance on monday. paula. >> that motive, the big question. thank you. the other big story, the ongoing unrest in charlotte. bowing to pressure, the police department releasing two videos of the fatal shooting of keith lamont scott after days of protests demanding that the footage be made public. our eva pilgrim has been in charlotte all week. there's a lot these videos show but a whole lot they don't.
>> reporter: the peaceful protesters saying this is not enough. they want the full video released. they have been calling for it since the shooting happened last week. meanwhile, the city of charlotte ramping up security for today's panther's game declaring it an extraordinary event prepared for more protests now that this portion of the video is out. this morning a first look at the police video showing the fatal shooting of keith lamont scott. in the dash cam vi scott get out of his suv walking backwards, hands by his side. when four shots are fired. >> we got shots fired. one suspect down. >> it does not make sense to us how it was possible that this incident resulted in the loss of life. >> reporter: the body cam video showing a different angle. a uniformed officer using a baton trying to break the passenger window to get scott
scott seen standing outside of the vehicle and then the father of seven lying on the ground. police running up with guns drawn. >> from his hand. >> reporter: officers checking his pulse begin to administer aid. >> we need to hold the wound. >> reporter: police releasing pictures of the evidence taken from the scene saying scott's dna and fingerprints were found on the loaded gun they recovered. >> there's no single piece of evidence that proves all the complexities iol investigative process. >> what i see on the video is the failure of the police to use all of the resources that they had at their disposal to avoid killing keith. >> reporter: family members say 43-year-old keith scott was sitting in his car waiting to pick up his son from school. according to police officers
unrelated arrest warrant. they saw scott with marijuana and a gun and made the decision to approach him. >> do those actions, do those precious seconds justify this shooting? >> what we know and what you should know about him is that he was an american citizen who deserved better. >> reporter: the police chief saying they will release the rest of the video when this investigation is complete. dan. >> eva pilgrim, thank you. let's break down this newly released video now with abc news consultant brad garrett formerly with the fbi. good morning. two things strike me from this video. first, it's really not clear that keith lamont scott is holding a gun and second, his arms are at his side in the moment he was shot as far as i can tell and he's backing up. so do you see what i'm seeing here? >> i'm seeing the same thing, dan. so it raises the following questions. he steps out of the vehicle as
come up? you hear the cops yell drop the gun, drop the gun. he apparently doesn't drop the gun. at some point from their vantage point he must have raised the gun. i can't think of any other justification to shoot him. >> right. is there some other tactic they could have used in that moment like tasing him or letting him continue to back up? >> either one is a possibility. and it also raises the bigger question is why did you just not leave him in the vehicle and sort of wait him out. >> the other thing we see on the earlier videos is the gun on the ground after scott has been shot and some people have pointed out that the gun seems awfully far away from him. does that raise any suspicions for you? >> no because typically you move a gun away from somebody that you've just shot or arrested for the obvious reasons so they can't reach for it if they're still conscious. >> thank you very much. so many questions still. we appreciate you helping us clarify to the extent possible.
questions. thanks dan. in politics a huge development one day before the highly anticipated presidential debate. this race, it is tighter than ever. that's according to a new abc news washington post poll that shows the candidates are just two percentage points apart. hillary clinton has 46. donald trump has 44. here's a look inside the debate hall at new yo will spar in their first of three presidential debates. abc's cecelia vega on what we can expect tomorrow night. that's the big question. good morning to you. >> i think we can expect fireworks. good morning to you. the super bowl of american politics just a day away and it is expected to draw a super bowl sized audience. 100 million americans likely to watch this showdown. all eyes on two people who might be watching from the front row right inside that debate hall. >> i'm going to fight. >> minus one day to that epic face-off.
and the invite list couldn't be any weirder after hillary clinton's team offered a ticket to one of the best seats in the house to donald trump's reality tv billionaire nemesis mark cuban. >> i'll give you 25 grand for 33%. just say yes. >> trump took to twitter threatening to offer an invitation of his own saying if dopey mark cuban wants to sit in the front row perhaps i will put gennifer flowers right alongside of him. gennifer flowers being the woman who had an affair with bill clinton decades ago. she reportedly told the new york times, yes, i will be there. the trump campaign would not say whether an actual invitation was extended. >> we are going to show the whole world that america is back. >> trump attending a rally in virginia taking a break from debate preps where he's not holding mock debates but
rudy giuliani. some aides concern trump hasn't spent enough time practicing and gets easily distracted. clinton deep in briefing books and mock debates, her team finally revealing a tightly guarded debate prep secret. the person picked to play her opponent, a long time aide known for being shrewd and combative felipe reigns. >> gennifer flowers might be in the audience while clinton's on using the debate to discuss issues that make a difference in people's lives. it's not surprising donald trump has chosen a different path. i know you want to come with me. but i'm sorry. i don't get any tickets. >> are you sure you don't have an extra ticket? >> yeah. >> i'll hide in your luggage. so much intrigue. both parties feel like they're going into this particular debate with an unfair disadvantage. how are they trying to gain the system in their favor? >> they're trying to work the refs right now and donald trump
and going after the debate moderators talking about which parties they may or may not vote for. hillary clinton is complaining about the moderators, too, saying she doesn't feel like she'll get fair questions, he will not have difficult questions like her because the bar is lower for him. i think what we'll see is big fireworks on that stage. >> do you think george might be able to hook me up with a ticket? >> ask him. george. >> good luck with that. for more on that let's bring in george stephanopoulos who is going to be hosting "this week" what kind of impact do you think in the end a debate like this is going to have? our poll shows 74% of americans say they're going to watch but 80% say they don't think it's going to change their mind. >> there are big debates about debates. and how much difference they really make. most people believe that generally the debates don't make a big different. in these final weeks. tend to re-enforce the trends inside the race. here's why this year may be different. number one, the size of the audience. probably 100 mom people, maybe
number two, voters are unusually fluid this year. usually by this time in the race the number of undecided voters is 5% to 7%. this year it could be double and they're going to be watching to see how they do. >> it's mind-boggling to think people haven't made up their mind. we have been digging into this poll that shows it's tighter than ever. we want to talk about the candidates and their challenge. donald trump, 60% see him as unqualified, untrustworthy. temperamentally unsuited and insufficiently knowledgeable to serve as president. can he use this debate? >> those numbers have been coming down. he has been making progress over the last month. his job tomorrow night is to appear calm, in command and he knows what he's doing, knows what he's talking about. we'll see how hillary clinton can call him out on that. remember in past debates donald trump is usually one of 10, 11, 12 people on stage. never one on one with one
moderator. we'll see if he can fill up the time with policies that hold up. >> a whole new dynamic for him and clinton, it's about her honesty and her health. only 36% see her as honest and trustworthy and after that recent bought with pneumonia 53% think she's in good health to serve as president. can she made it on either of these issues? >> safe to say she can't afford one of those coughing fits on the stage. other than that i don't think the health is going to matter. honestly and trustworthiness, her biggest hurdle no question about that, can she find a way in this debate to handle that liability to appear authentic, to appear a little more warm, but also in command and put the debate to donald trump? >> i'm plain looking forward to this. a combination of breaking news, the super bowl and the series finale of "downton abbey." >> we're going to talk to the campaign managers. about the debates. i would be shocked if the commission on presidential debates let's gennifer flowers
this would take it definitely further into the reality tv zone. thank you very much, george. i want to remind everybody, he's got a big show coming up later on "this week." on the eve of the debate. he is as he said going one on one with clinton campaign manager and trump campaign manager, plus libertarian presidential nominee gary johnson. >> and tomorrow night george will be leading our debate coverage joined by martha raddatz, tom llamas, cecelia monday night, tomorrow night starting at 9 eastern on abc. get your popcorn ready everybody. this morning extreme concern in the midwest as several rivers in both iowa and wisconsin are in major flood stages because of heavy rainfall. rob, that flooding is expected to get worse over the next hours and days? >> this week they have seen a tremendous amount of rain and there's more rain coming in right now.
eastern iowa where the river continues to rise and cedar rapids, it is not flooding right now but tomorrow is going to be a whole other deal. several rivers rising dangerously high in iowa. cedar rapids bracing for what could be one of the worst floods in its history. >> we need to push hard these next two days to be fully prepared for that crest. >> pushing hard and hoping sand bags will keep f bay. >> everybody is working together as a team trying to get the houses safe from the water coming up pretty fast. >> residents evacuating before the rising waters hit monday night. >> we figured it would be a good idea to get everything out of the basement and getting some important stuff out. >> we know it's a very stressful event for someone to have to leave their home. >> the cedar river at cedar rapids expected to crest at 23
three days of destructive flooding with water critically high. the governor of iowa issuing a state of emergency for 13 counties in the state. >> this is a true testament of a community coming together. >> fresh in their minds the floods of 2008 records shattering numbers. they are ready for this. they are preparing for this. at this point 23 feet is below that record stage but down town will flood and they are evacuating for at least 7 days well. big situation there. this front, no slouch either especially across texas. flash flood watch. three to four inches of rainfall and flood prone areas like austin and san antonio and further west we'll be watching over the next 48 hours. santa ana wind event, we have seen the winds blow. no big fires have sparked yet but today will be a critical day.

we know you have taken on a number of high-profile cases since you made a name for yourself. we'll talk about your cause in a moment. i want to talk to you about these environmental threats. they aren't going away. we saw that with the huge sinkhole in florida and contaminated water and now a class action lawsuit? >> yes. there was a class filed. you know, that is a horrific situation. and these environmental issues and our water quality is deteriorating and not going away and is a whole lot worse. than it was way back when. but the situation in florida is with mosaic, a big mining company, phosphorus plant and have all these ponds where they separate out the radioactive material. these ponds sit on top of a prolific aquifer system in florida, one of the best in the world, and why we put those type of ponds with radioactive
water supply for the state of florida in an area prone to sinkholes baffles my mind. but 170 achor sinkhole opened up and the radioactive material got sucked right down into the floridian aquifer. >> the placement defies logic. i want to talk to you about empower. there are things we can do to protect ourselves especially when it comes to our drinking water. >> oh, there's so much that people can do. i think you're seeing that happening right we're in a whole new world of social awareness and information. and it really is back to power to the people. don't be afraid to ask questions. a lot of times people will move away from an instinct where they think their water looks or smells different and i encourage them to follow through. there's a lot they can do from making phone calls to talking to your neighbor, to even getting online and ascertaining information about educating
