it's all rain in the southeast through today and then overnight into early tomorrow morning. right there at 7:00 for washington, d.c. it changes over to snow. some of the heaviest snow totals will fall between philadelphia and new york city. you can see right there in the evening drive time it's not going to be pretty going into your weekend and then it's all gone by 10:00 p.m. and it's plenty cold behind it. i have to tell you guys, it has snowed as late as may in new york, so really -- >> we're lucky. >> we're lucky. there you go. i like that. i like that attitude. >> thank you, ginger. we'll move on to that deadly terror attack. two gunmen storming a museum killing more than 20 people, most of them tourists in the north african nation of tunisia. authorities hurting for accomplices as museums around the world go on high alert. brian ross with the latest. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning, george. the attack seen by authorities as a wake-up call for museums and popular tourist sites around the world including here in the u.s. overnight new york city police
assigned extra details to the most popular museums here in direct response to that deadly tunisia attack. [ sirens ] >> reporter: the attack in tunisia came without warning. and security forces did not arrive in time to prevent the massacre. tourists inside the crowded bardo national museum ran for their lives some shielding their children as two gunmen approached with heavy weapons. some of the tourists hid inside the galleries beneath priceless antiquities. this french tourist tells how police told her to run. when we left we saw dead bodies, she says. most of the dead and wounded were tourists from poland, germany, spain and italy. many of them massacred as they got off a tour bus that brought them to the museum from a cruise ship. one eyewitness said one of the gunmen actually got on the tour bus and opened fire. the parliament building next door to the museum was put on lockdown as defiant lawmakers
sang the country's national anthem. the two gunmen were killed and officials say they have arrested nine people as suspected accomplices and are searching for more. alex marquardt of abc news is on the scene. >> reporter: this is the where attack started outside of the museum. due knee shan officials say at least 20 people were killed. >> reporter: the location of the attack at the ba are, do museum as terror groups are calling for attacks on soft targets and on cultural centers. >> my concern would be that an individual who's becoming radicalized in their basement is watching video on the internet of an attack and decides that they want to replicate it. >> reporter: it was just last month that isis destroyed rooms full of centuries-old antiquities at a museum in mosul, iraq.
this morning, jihadist sites are applauding the attack in tunisia with one calling for more efforts killing european or american tourists. wherever they can be found in museums or their hotel rooms. >> was there any sense that isis was behind it from the beginning? >> isis called for attacks in tunisia but so far there's no indication that it's isis. it could be another group like isis has no hesitation about slaughtering innocent civilians. >> brian ross, thanks very much. all right, george, now to the arrest of a college student sparking accusations of excessive police force. the incident caught on camera showing a 20-year-old university of virginia junior on the ground, his face bloody and the school is angry. abc's linsey davis is here with that story. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, robin. right away the university's president ask virginia's governor for an independent investigation into the incident, e-mailing the campus community saying, she had deep concern about it. and now the governor is investigating the use of force
in martese johnson's arrest which you can see the end result caught on cell phone video. >> his head is bleeding! >> reporter: outrage this morning surrounding the now viral video of this arrest of 20-year-old martese johnson, a black male student at the university of virginia. >> i go to uva. >> reporter: the college junior wrestled to the ground by alcoholic beverage control agents early wednesday morning after trying to get into a bar near uva's campus. >> how does this happen? you racists! >> reporter: his blood splattered on the pavement. witnesses say police acted with unnecessary force and hit his head on the ground reportedly requiring ten stitches. johnson was arrested and charged with obstruction of justice without force and public swearing or intoxication. overnight thousands of students gathering at a rally on campus in support of johnson who's a member of the school's honor committee. johnson, emotional, wiping away
tears. >> please respect every here. we're all part of one community. >> reporter: his lawyer telling abc news that martese is a smart young man with a bright future. he is absolutely devastated by yesterday's events. we're preparing to investigate and defend this matter vigorously. the university's president echoing that sentiment at the rally last night. >> my heart went out to him. i thought how i would feel if i were his mother. >> reporter: this video yet another example of racial tensions between civilians and authorities. at one point you can hear someone in the background chanting hands up. >> hands up! >> reporter: parts of the "hands up, don't shoot" mantra recited following the shooting death of michael brown in ferguson, missouri, last summer. johnson pictured here with his hands up in a demonstration after the unarmed teen's death. johnson was released from jail wednesday morning. an e-mail from one student organization signed as concerned black students said the arrest was unprovoked and he was not resisting questioning or arrest, george. >> a lot of questions left here. okay, linsey, thanks very much.
we're going to turn now to that deadly shooting spree in arizona. one person killed, five hurt when an ex-convict went on a rampage. he is under arrest this morning and abc's kendis gibson brings us the latest from mesa. good morning, kendis. >> reporter: good morning, george. and that shooting rampage started at this motel right here. for several hours, this phoenix suburb gripped with fear. this morning we're learning more about the accused gunman and his white supremacist groups connections. police say this man, ryan giroux is responsible for this shooting spree that killed one and injured five. terrifying the citizens of mesa, arizona, during a five-hour manhunt which paralyzed this community. the 41-year-old has an extensive rap sheet, seven felonies and spent 14 years behind bars. in this mug shot you can see the words skin head tattooed on his face. >> suspect is armed with a.422 handgun. >> reporter: it began at this
motel when he walked into a room and an argument started. he shot three people and one man died. >> we know that there was some type of argument or they possibly knew each other. >> reporter: he races across the street to a restaurant next to a high school where he shoots a student worker. >> i got up and immediately just felt warm and knew what happened and told everyone to stay back. >> reporter: then carjacks a vehicle. >> gray dark honda accord. >> reporter: as a massive manhunt featuring five law enforcement agencies gets under way, the community placed on lockdown, police going door to door. two other men are shot within a three-mile radius finally at 1:09 p.m. the suspect spotted on an apartment balcony. authorities quickly surrounding the complex. >> they were marching through the apartments and trying to find him. helicopter out. you know, i have a 6-month-old son, and so it's pretty nerve-racking. >> reporter: authorities apprehend him at last, tasing him and leading him out in a hazmat suit. this morning, police still trying to figure out a motive. two victims were released from
the hospital. isaac martinez, you saw in the story right there, moments after he was hit, his shirt still soaked with blood, he posts a selfie on snapchat with the caption "i just got shot." george. >> okay kendis thanks very much. let's go to dan harris in for amy today and starting with more questions for the secret service. >> good morning, everybody. the secret service is now revealing that some of the surveillance tapes showing a recent incident at the white house may have been erased. the incident in question is from earlier this month. you may remember two agents who allegedly had been drinking drove into a security barrier. the director of the secret service showed members of congress two videos of what happened but those videos provide only limited views. agency officials say the other videos from that night were erased after 72 hours as part of a routine deletion policy. some members of congress though are skeptical and say it may now be impossible to prove whether they were in fact drunk. this morning the pentagon confirms the mastermind of a deadly terror attack on a mall in kenya has been killed in a u.s. drone strike. adnan garaar was a senior member
of al shabaab, which is an offshoot of al qaeda in somalia, and he's believed to be responsible for the attack on the westgate mall in nairobi back in 2013. the pentagon says his death is a, quote, significant blow to the terror organization. an army unit in alaska is being investigated for a tradition many will find offensive known as racial thursdays. the army times newspaper says a platoon of soldiers based at ft. wainwright were allegedly given a free pass to use racial slurs against one another on thursdays. this is the same unit to which private danny chen once belonged. authorities say chen took his life four years ago after being hazed over his chinese ancestry. if you got caught up in last year's big data breach involving target, you could now get up to $10,000 from the company. target has agreed to put $10 million into a fund to settle a class action lawsuit. there's a hearing in federal court this morning on that settlement. catholic church officials in san francisco are now backing down after using sprinklers to
prevent homeless people from taking shelter in the doorways of st. mary's cathedral. the sprinklers were placed above the doors dousing the homeless while they slept. the church says it was only trying to, quote, redirect those folks, but after a public outcry they have agreed to remove the sprinklers. and finally, on a lighter note, we all get distracted at work. let's be honest, for some of us it's twitter. for george it's youtube videos of talking goats. but this state lawmaker in iowa it's a book called "sex after sixty." >> oh, no. >> representative ross paustian was caught on camera reading during a debate. on the house floor. now, he actually insists that he was paying attention and that the book -- >> yes, he was. >> the book is not his. it was a gag gift for the guy who sits next to him. >> of course. >> and recently turned 60. reminds me of the time strahan told me he only reads "playboy" for the articles. >> i'm actually holding a "playboy" with a comic book
inside. i'm really looking at "playboy." >> this is what you do during my newscast, right? >> just put it down. >> he looks so chilled reading it. >> he was owning it. >> yes. >> oh -- i thought he was engaged -- >> oh, boy. >> all right there, dan. >> engaged with the content of the book. >> always good to have you here. >> my pleasure. >> thank you. >> i'll be here many days in a row. >> should we move on? >> no. >> we'll do it, lara. starbucks, the coffee chain is not backing down from its decision to tackle race relations. the company's ceo defended the campaign in a big annual meeting wednesday. abc's neal karlinsky has that story for us. >> reporter: this morning starbucks' ceo speaking out just hours after launching a huge campaign about race relations in america which went over like a cold cup of coffee. people were incredibly vocal. here's one race together is what happens when a 1 percenter has a
midlife white man's burden crisis. >> well, you know what i say to that no good deed goes unpunished. >> reporter: starbucks hoping to get people talking about america's race problems by having baristas right race together on cups, an idea quickly met by an avalanche of criticism online and on the air. >> are white people cranky in line before they even have their coffee? >> yes, they are. >> is a black man that's in line talking about his oppression with his people going to make them cranky white people crankier? >> probably, yeah. >> reporter: starbucks ceo howard schultz says he genuinely wants to help by using his company's popularity to do some good. why do you think people are so angry with your campaign? >> all we're trying to do is create awareness but what i would say is that the rules of engagement in trying to create change in america is a very difficult thing to do. >> reporter: he says he wasn't surprised by the reaction but even one of his own executives temporarily shut down his twitter account because the
backlash was so ugly. this morning starbucks isn't cutting its campaign short but rather hoping people take it to heart. >> i think this is an issue facing the country and facing our people. and we're trying to do some good. >> reporter: for "good morning america," neal karlinsky, abc news, seattle. >> and it definitely has people talking. >> oh, yeah. >> it really does. >> absolutely. >> what do you have for us, michael? >> that daredevil motorcyclist is behind bars this morning after leading police on a wild high-speed chase for an hour. on wednesday. his wild ride was caught on camera and abc's reena ninan has the story. >> here we go again. here we go again, showing off. >> reporter: overnight, a dangerous high-speed police chase turns into a motorcycle stunt show through the streets of southern california. >> and look at these speeds, i mean, he's just continuing to bolt here. >> reporter: watch this reckless rider topping speeds of 100
miles per hour standing on top of his seat, and then, look, doing it again, weaving through traffic. >> ahead he's approaching traffic here. >> reporter: appearing to make obscene gestures at california highway patrol officers in hot pursuit. >> but he does seem to be looking back at them. he does seem to be almost taunting those two officers. >> reporter: the biker driving on the wrong side of the road at times, narrowly evading officers. >> blows by him. he may have hit that door. >> reporter: the high-speed drama ending here at this gas station. the biker giving up, putting the brakes on his joyride. >> officers are out. they do have their guns out which is, you know, very dangerous situation. >> reporter: and booked on charges of driving on the wrong side of the road and failure to yield. >> i just want to say that i love my family and my two baby girls and i'm sorry i disappointed them. >> reporter: for "good morning america," reena ninan, abc news, new york. >> and there were some bystanders who were cheering him on as if he were evel knievel but very dangerous, no laughing matter. his bike was taken away by a tow truck and he's due to appear in
court tomorrow on $500,000 bail. >> he said he was disappointed and -- what he did -- maybe he should have thought of that before. >> love your family, stay healthy. >> when you do things like that you can also put people who aren't involved in danger, as well. >> good point. >> thank you, michael. back to ginger, back to the snow. >> yes. let's detail the forecast more. i didn't get to the snow totals. it's not going to be a ton of know that falls on friday but it is going to be enough to make those roads pretty murky and not going to be easy. from washington, d.c., you're in that half to 1 1/2-inch area up to philadelphia. a lot heavier it looks like on long island. just to detail that quickly, it's all coming, well, most of it from a storm that did this, close to corpus christi, texas. look, the animals there in the barn fighting through floodwaters, it wasn't just the horses and goats, thankfully everybody is okay. but, of course, the roads around there too, and more heavy rain still falling and this is through saturday. you can take some 2 to 3 inches

they also found copies of two books, "a deadly secret" and "without a trace," both chronicling the multiple mysterious deaths he's suspected of, the literary versions of hbo's "the jinx." the warrant also detailing the remarkable stash found in durst's new orleans hotel room when he was arrested saturday. including a full face latex mask, more than 42,000 in cash, mostly in hundreds, and enough pot found for 300 joints, a fake i.d. plus a real passport and a .38 special revolver with four live rounds. police hauling him into court early this week on possession of a weapon with a controlled substance. it's a charge that orleans parish d.a. leon cannizzaro tells abc news exclusively could permanently end his life on the run. so just for those gun charges here in louisiana he could face up to life in prison? >> if he has a prior criminal history under what we call our repeat offender statute.

homework but for new cars the vehicles are supposed to be sold free of defects. the dealer not fixing it is against the law. during our investigation, we visit multiple dealerships in two states, new jersey and new york, asking about cars with recalls. some salesmen find those defects. >> thanks. >> i appreciate it. >> reporter: but let's go back to hawthorne, new jersey, where we identified chevy silverado with an open safety recall. some trucks like these can unexpectedly lose power on the road. >> any recalls or anything on this one? >> no. >> reporter: if there's a recall, the dealership does by law have to fix it before it's in our hands. four days later, jerry now owns that brand-new pickup. then, using the truck's vin number, we immediately check gm's website to see if the recall has been fixed. >> here it is, recall status, incomplete. arnie has some explaining to do. listen, you sold jerry this car
and you said that there were no recalls on it. but, in fact, there are recalls on it. in fact, a very serious one. >> there's a recall on this? >> yes. >> oh, i have to check it out and see. i don't know. i wasn't aware. >> reporter: remember, he said there was no recall. >> no, no, absolutely not. i made a mistake. >> reporter: the dealership's president telling "gma investigates," we have realized that our failure was tied exclusively to human error. from now on we will be cross-checking serial numbers with our service records. but it's not only this dealership. we've uncovered hundreds of new cars from many manufacturers from around the country that were sold with unfixed safety recalls and we're told that's just the tip of the iceberg. incredibly the national highway transportation safety administration, nhtsa, which is headquartered right here in the nation's capital, only fined two dealerships in 2014. senator ed markey sits on the senate subcommittee for consumer protection. we found hundreds and hundreds
of new cars that have recalls on them and guess what, they were sold. >> yeah, and that's wrong. you have to assume that when there's a brand-new car with that new car smell in it that there are no defects. >> reporter: nhtsa has 51 people on that enforcement team. we have a couple of producers looking at this, why can't nhtsa do it? >> nhtsa should have done this work. it shouldn't take an investigation by abc to find this problem. nhtsa is now put on notice its job is to be the cop on the beat. >> reporter: and nhtsa declined to do an on-camera interview but tells us there is no excuse for dealers to sell news cars with open recalls. the makers of our truck, gm, says they tell dealers not to sell them with open recalls. ways to check if your car is affected. you can use the my car fax app or check the nhtsa database. we posted links to those on our website, goodmorningamerica.com on yahoo! but, remember, guys, these are brand-new cars. you shouldn't have these issues.
>> and they did fix it for free in your case, right? >> they did and guess how long it took? less than 20 minutes. >> i mean, wow. >> all right, gio, thank you. really, you are on it. and you can see more of gio's report tonight on "nightline." and coming up here, a possible breakthrough in treating alzheimer's. detecting the disease up to a decade before diagnosis. plus, the science behind the unbreakable bond between man and dog. puppy love explained. ♪

cue about -- physical clue, rather, about brain function. doctors acknowledge more research is needed before this multistage test can be recommended, but they are encouraged by the results thus far. this morning, mitt romney weighing in on the hillary clinton e-mail scandal. romney telling yahoo! global news anchor katie couric, the questions being raised about why clinton used private e-mail during her time as secretary of state could hurt her presumed presidential campaign. romney even called it a mess. >> i mean, we've seen this before. i mean, it's always something with the clintons, which is that they have rules which they describe before they get into something and then they decide they don't have to follow their own rules and that i think is going to be a real problem for her. >> if you want to watch katie's full exclusive interview with mitt and ann romney, you can logon to yahoo!.com. a new twist now in the controversy over the hit song "blurred lines." a jury last week awarded marvin gaye's kids more than $7 million saying "blurred lines" copied part of gaye's song "got to give

"new york" magazine examining this growing trend in a new article interviewing multiple women who were unsure or ambivalent towards having children. the women citing concerns over loss of autonomy, a nonequal split in child care and the effect it might have on their career. >> today's young women are so much more integrated into the workforce and i think that integration is a lot of what's going on when women are weighing whether or not they want a kid. i think it's a different dynamic than we've seen maybe in previous generations. >> reporter: it's a question the article's author, 30-year-old bryce covert, married for six months, even grappled with herself. >> my husband does want kids and, you know, for awhile i was not sure. i really truly felt ambivalent. i'm not going to have a kid now. i still don't feel quite ready. >> reporter: a parenting dilemma for a new generation of couples. for "good morning america," paula faris, abc news, new york. >> thanks to paula for that.
joining us now is dr. joseph cilona, expert for a&e's "marriage at first sight" and also relationship expert andrea syrtash. welcome to both of you and i got to say i was surprised by this, dr. cilona. does that mean men have a biological clock? >> i wouldn't say men have a biological clock, but i do think many men have a strong preference to be of a certain age when they have children. they may want to be youthful enough to participate in their lives or even just want to be part of their grandchildren's lives should they have them or increase the likelihood they are. >> don't women want that too, though? >> absolutely. but for men, i think they're used to having a lot more choice around that question and it's becoming a lot more relevant. >> i see. >> when should the couple have this conversation? it's a pretty big conversation. >> it's a big conversation and it's an important one and i'm always shocked that couples wait so many years before it comes up. don't have it on date three but if you're seeing a big picture with the person you have to put these topics on the table. >> and once you put it on the table i would think if you disagree over this, that's kind of it.
>> it could be a big deal breaker. it's perhaps the most important decision you're going to make as a couple and you can't have one person say no. it cannot be that. >> how do you have that discussion how do you approach that do you think? >> i think this is a discussion again, that has to happen early on in a relationship. i think the earlier the better. the more emotionally engaged you are, the more difficult this may be so something that should be identified early. >> easier for the guy to push when the woman is the one who actually has to carry the baby. >> the woman's pushing. >> well said. yes. >> you know, this comes up in the conversation. how would you talk a couple through? what kind of tips would you have? >> well, the first tip i have is, do not make assumptions. if many years ago your partner said i don't know how i feel about kids. don't assume they have the same answer. we evolve. we change our minds so keep the conversation open. hear your partner's perspective. don't go into a fight with boxing gloves and say, we're not going to find a resolution. you'd be surprised.
>> i think it's also important to be very honest and get clarity around your needs and values, around children and parenting, roles and responsibilities in parenting. that's one of the most important factors that causes dissension and contention. identifying those roles because those roles are changing. >> you really do need to be unified. >> thank you both very much. next up here in the "gma heat index," sam smith's startling transformation. he shed 14 pounds in 14 days and revealing how he did it. mara schiavocampo has the story. ♪ oh won't you stay with me ♪ >> reporter: he's the british pop star who's no stranger to winning big. >> sam smith. >> reporter: sam smith sweeping the grammys last month taking home four coveted award,s but now smith also losing big, 14 pounds in fact in just two weeks. the singer sharing his weight loss success on instagram tuesday saying his relationship

hamptons. it's always summer there, well, sort of. but this is about white and the floral trend is huge for spring but the great part about this dress is that it's ombre so you don't have floral all over. it doesn't feel too sweet. got that sort of killer edge i want to stay with her character. of course, the pockets and this is by ralph lauren, $129. >> thank you. we could see this and there's that white you're talking about. >> yes, there's the white and then you have it with the other trend florals. just have little bits of it. >> now we'll continue to primetime your closet right here. a show that we know, "girls." >> "girls." >> come on out. >> yes, absolutely. shoshanna in "girls" so cute, upper east side girl, a little neurotic at times but she wears, you know, a lace dress in the show with flats, but we want to do this. lace isn't practical for every day. so we love this dress. can you believe this is $28. >> $28. >> $28 at macy's. i love this, but we put it with heels to give it
an edge. of course it's that kind of dress you can wear all through the day, into the night on the weekends. >> that's what i was going to ask you, what occasion? go shopping go to bump and throw a jacket on and go to work. >> that looks great. looking good. oh, here we go again. i love this. >> white. i'm telling you white is the thing to do. so inspired by "pretty little liars." >> yes, thank you. >> lucy hale's character. so i love this whole thing because it's actually in essence just a really simple skirt, a black t-shirt and we put a pair of suspenders on almost as an accessory and reversed it. not the typical way to wear them but you can wear it like a necklace in a way. decorative and put it altogether. it's under $50. >> can everybody come out and see it altogether? you were talking about the price point. >> yes. >> reasonable because you want to keep that in mind. >> absolutely. i think the great thing about trends is you don't have to break the bank to wear it and you can wear it in variation.
if floral isn't for you, wear it in a little bit. if lace isn't for you because it isn't practical find something that sort of mimics that. >> are we going to see color too? >> we love color. go online to see our big color looks. we have a great color look for everybody, as well. >> okay, you little tease, you. lady, thank you very much. looking great. joe zee, as always, a pleasure and you can learn more ways to primetime your closet on our website at goodmorningamerica.com on yahoo! our thanks to joe. now to ginger with a final check on the weather. >> oh, robin, we love joe zee. love that last name and all of us just we're trying to stay warm. where are you from? >> el paso texas. >> it's her first day in new york or second day and you're loving it. >> i love it. >> loving it even though it's cold and feeling winter-like. let's warm ourselves up. port charlotte, florida, just through the grass, so pretty then long island, it doesn't know, huh. they don't know those little flowers coming through we have snow on the way. we do. just a few inches but will still be messy especially on the commute home on friday
