7:01 am
police rushing to investigate. the scary moment and the serious safety questions this morning. and good morning, america. boy, that was a real scare at the u.s. open last night. let's take a look again. you see that drone flying over the stadium before it actually lands in the stands, and these days you just can't be too sure about what's on that drone. it really did have everybody hold their breath for awhile. we're going to have a lot more on that ahead. we begin with that breaking news for our viewers in the west, a manhunt under way right now after a deadly shooting on a college campus in sacramento. one student dead. two injured. abc's aditi roy joins us with the latest. good morning, aditi. >> reporter: good morning, amy, this morning sacramento city college with 25,000 students in shock as the gunman remains on the loose. a frantic manhunt is sacramento this morning. >> subject shot behind the baseball field. we're getting duplicates of sounds of shots fired in the
7:02 am
area. >> reporter: after an on campus shooting at sacramento city college leaves at least one student dead, two others injured. the gunman firing in the parking lot near a baseball field. the shooting began 4:00 p.m. west coast time, the school notifying students by text as classes evacuated one at a time. >> police officer knocked on the door and told us all that we were evacuating the building. >> reporter: the campus placed on lockdown. >> just block people out of the campus right now, lockdown. >> reporter: the hunt for the gunman continuing. police describe the man as a pacific islander with short, dark hair, the motive not known. as for the wounded, one in serious condition but expected to fully recover, the other, grazed by a bullet but expected to be fine. george. >> thanks very much. now to that county clerk in kentucky jailed by a judge after she refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex
7:03 am
couples and said it would violate her religion belief. the judge said it was her duty under law. alex perez on the scene in kentucky. >> reporter: good morning. those who sued davis were only seeking to have her fined, but the judge didn't believe that would be enough to get her to comply so he put her in jail. this morning county clerk kim davis waking up behind bars, transferred to jail, a federal judge finding her in contempt of court after refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. marriage equality supporters erupting in cheers. davis saying in testimony thursday, "my conscience will not allow me." >> under whose authority are you not issuing licenses? >> under god's authority. >> reporter: the controversial clerk citing religious objections has been denying licenses since june when the supreme court legalized gay marriage nationwide. david ermold and david moore refused in july. >> they needed to give us the application. >> reporter: again in august and one more time this tuesday. >> you absolutely have disrespected us. >> reporter: one of the couples that sued davis now preparing to
7:04 am
wed. >> tomorrow as a couple it'll be a very important day in our lives. >> reporter: on the campaign trail several gop candidates supporting davis from rand paul -- >> i think it's absurd to put someone in jail for exercising their religious liberty. >> reporter: to senator ted cruz to former governor mike huckabee using the #imwithkim tweeting "we must defend religious liberty" asking supporters to sign a petition freeing the clerk but the white house also weighing in. >> the success of our democracy depends on the rule of law and there's no public official that is above the rule of law. >> reporter: davis' deputy clerks have already started issuing marriage licenses, a gay couple, one of the first to get their license, this morning. george. >> thanks, alex. more on this now from the lawyer for kim davis, matthew staver. i understand and respect her beliefs here and her conscience but when a public official's conscience conflicts with the law, doesn't that public official have a duty to resign? >> well, she's elected by the
7:05 am
people, and if the people want her to resign, then the people can ask her to resign, and they haven't done that. in fact, she's a very well-liked individual in that community. you know, just a year ago the attorney general had a conscience conflict with defending the marriage laws and the governor of the state of kentucky accommodated him and allowed him to step down from defending that case and they hired outside counsel for several hundred thousand dollars to protect his conscience rights and that's fine. kim davis is asking for something that doesn't cost anything and she's not the only one. there are lots of clerks in kentucky that have the same conscience convictions and they have just one request, just remove our name from the official licenses. you can have the commonwealth of kentucky, that's fine, they'll record it, that's fine. just don't affix their name and title to a marriage certificate that collides with their religious beliefs. >> another fix is that the deputies can sign the marriage licenses. that's expected to happen today. if that does, indeed, happen, do
7:06 am
you expect that the judge will release miss davis? >> no, i don't think he will because, in fact, it's the same thing for kim davis. it still has her name on it. yes, the deputies can -- they did not want to originally, but then the judge brought them in and threatened them with jail time, as well, so five out of the six said they would issue the licenses but it doesn't remedy the situation for kim or anyone else because it still has kim's name on it. one thing about kim, she may be incarcerated behind the jail bars, but her conscience remains free, and just knowing kim, she's made a decision and she can't violate that conscience and she can't have this collision with her religious convictions. i think she represents lots of clerks in kentucky, lots of clerks around the country, and i think there's going to be some effort to change and protect kim's religious freedom and many others like her. >> how long is she prepared to stay in jail? >> she will not violate her conscience, so whatever the consequences of that is, kim davis doesn't want to be in this situation, but she's prepared to face whatever it is. >> mr. staver, thanks for joining us this morning.
7:07 am
>> thank you. my pleasure. >> unclear if it'll come to that, but the judge has the ability to hold her in jail for up to 18 months. >> wow, significant. i'm sure we'll be following that and i'm sure a lot are watching that around the country. also a lot watching the weather. holiday weekend weather. the west feeling the effect of that newest tropical storm and out east, the heat is making a comeback, ginger, no. >> very brief reprieve and then a comeback. we'll get to that but first the strong storms rolling across the desert southwest. stunning pictures of those dust storms. about 4,000 without power so not the strongest that they've seen this week but certainly something that you could see more of, not only today but tomorrow thanks to tropical storm kevin, not that it's going to make landfall, it's going to turn away from cabo, but it will surge enough moisture into the desert southwest that we could see more flash flooding, gusty winds and dust storms. so many of us going to the beach and look at this. rip currents were a problem last week in huntington and took the
7:08 am
lifeguards, the video of all the saves, more than 470 in one week and we've got those rip current statements out for a lot of beaches so do a little extra planning if you do that. comfortable weekend, as i said, and much, much hotter as we hit the actual labor day coming up on monday on the east coast. >> thanks. the race for president now. your voice, your vote. and vice president biden speaking out publicly for the first time last night about a possible run for president. jon karl covering that from the white house. and, jon, you can see from biden's talk that this is above all an emotional decision. >> reporter: it sure is, george. joe biden sounds like he really wants to run for president but he's unsure whether or not his family can handle it so soon after the death of his son beau. in an appearance last night at an atlanta synagogue, the moderator asked the vice president the big question. >> so please let us know your present thinking -- [ laughter ] -- about whether or not you'll enter the 2016 presidential race. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: after a moment of
7:09 am
thought, vice president biden gave this heart-felt response. >> the most relevant factor in my decision is whether my family and i have the emotional energy to run. >> reporter: biden dismissed other factors including fund-raising and whether or not he could take on hillary clinton. >> it's not the factor. the factor is, can i do it? can my family undertake what is an arduous commitment that we'd be proud to undertake under ordinary circumstances, but the honest to god answer is, i just don't know. >> reporter: the biden family is still coping with the death of son beau biden to brain cancer in may. in his final days, beau reportedly urged his father to run. >> i can't look you straight in the eye and say now, i know i can do that. that's as honest as i can be. >> reporter: biden is expected to take at least a few weeks to make this decision but, george, after those comments last night, it is now more clear than ever why at this point he truly is undecided. >> yeah, you can see it. boy, his demeanor so striking
7:10 am
there, jon. now, he said hillary clinton not a factor, but is she still facing those e-mail questions? one of her top aides testifying on capitol hill yesterday. >> reporter: yeah, and there's no question that it is a factor as far as those close to him. they look at this race, they see that hillary clinton with all the problems dealing with her e-mail issue is clearly vulnerable. they believe she is clearly beatable in a democratic primary and that is the case that they are making to democrats as joe biden makes this decision. >> okay, jon, thanks. we're going to turn to the republicans now. a new move from donald trump reversing course now signed a loyalty pledge to the republican party ruling out an independent run for president. promising to support the gop nominee even if it's not him. abc's tom llamas has been tracking the race and joins us now. >> reporter: good morning. all 17 republican candidates have now signed that pledge. trump says there's no scenario where he leaves the republican party to go rogue. this as an interview with a conservative talk radio show host didn't go exactly as planned. this morning, donald trump's going from this --
7:11 am
>> i will not make the pledge at this time. >> okay. >> reporter: -- to this. >> so i will be totally pledging my allegiance to the republican party and the conservative principles for which it stands. >> reporter: promising not to run as a third party candidate holding up a sign pledged to the gop. rival jeb bush mocking the whole affair tweeting out this photo, "voted republican since 1972" and signing it. but this was no joke for the chairman of the republican party. reince priebus meeting with trump privately. >> he did what he had to do and i did what i had to do as chairman of the party, and my job is to put the party in a better position when we get a nominee. >> reporter: meanwhile, overnight donald trump showing he may need a foreign policy coach if he wants to make it to the white house. >> are you familiar with general suleimani? >> yes. i -- go ahead. give me a little -- go ahead,
7:12 am
tell me. >> he runs the quds forces. >> yes, okay, right. >> do you expect -- >> and i think the kurds have been, by the way, horribly mistreated by us. >> no, not the kurds, the quds forces. >> yes. >> reporter: the republican front-runner stumbling through an interview on thursday. >> i don't believe in gotcha questions. i'm not trying to quiz you. >> well, that is a gotcha question. you know, when you're asking about who is running this, this, this, that's not -- that is not -- i will be so good at the military, your head will spin. >> reporter: and hugh hewitt, the talk show host we just heard from will be part of the next republican debate. the latest national poll shows trump stronger than ever leading the pack with 30% of the vote. george. >> yeah, right now he's winning across the board. okay, tom, thanks very much. we'll have much more on this sunday on "this week." right now let's go to paula faris with today's other top stories. boy, this crisis in europe continues to grow. >> so heartbreaking. good morning. right now a tense standoff
7:13 am
is under way as hundreds of middle eastern refugees seeking a better life in europe are demanding to board trains for germany but they're being stopped and forced into camp. some including women and children, look at these incredible images, are blocking railroad tracks in a desperate protest. abc's alex marquardt is in hungary which has been overwhelmed by this crisis. alex, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, paula. some very dramatic scenes. this is essentially a standoff between what may be more than a thousand syrian refugees on this train and these police forces that won't let them go further. you can hear them chanting, freedom. refusing to be taken to nearby refugee camps and demanding that they be allowed to proceed to germany. this morning, their message is clear, but they will not budge, desperate to go on. >> the situation is so bad. >> reporter: the greatest refugee crisis since the second world war. thousands of refugees risking their lives crossing the mediterranean sea, they're taking extraordinary chances
7:14 am
like packing themselves into airless trucks. just last week more than 70 syrian refugees suffocating to death in austria. and what may be the lasting image of the world's failure to end the war in syria, the heartbreaking photos of a 3-year-old syrian toddler drowned on a turkish beach as his family tried to reach safer shores. these tragedies fueling calls for action from around the world demands the european leaders do more. just this morning british prime minister david cameron whose country has taken in very few syrian refugees saying they will now accept thousands more. paula. >> yeah. acquiescing to that pressure, alex, thank you. and back in this country overnight, a big welcome home for an american hero. spencer stone arrived to cheering crowds in california. stone, if you remember, was one of four americans who helped stop a terrorist attack on a train in france just last month. sacramento will throw a parade in their honor on september 11th. we do have big news about the economy this morning. 173,000 jobs were created last month. that's the weakest number in five months but enough to help lower the unemployment rate to

8:13 am
>> that's an eye-opening one right there. let's talk to our parenting expert, ericka souter. it's tricky. when you first hear about this, you want to be able to trust your kids. so how do you approach them to find out if you can trust them? >> well, ideally you have had this conversation before you've given them the phone, but if that ship has sailed, it's not too late. you want to set down some ground rules. number one, they should know that having this phone is a privilege and not a right. and, number two, you are going to monitor what they do, what apps they put on, what kind of communications they're having and, number three, if they do something wrong, that phone is gone. >> yep. >> right. well, that's number one in ours, but you're saying you always have the right to take the phone back. >> you should always have the right to take the phone back. >> my daughters say i have opp, old people's problems meaning i can't navigate their phone. how is someone like me supposed to be able to tell that's a fake app? >> right, well, it's pretty easy. what you want to do, go get their device and go to the app store, right, on their phone and then after you go to the app store, you want to go to the search function, and then you want to type in a phrase like private photos or hidden photos
8:14 am
or secret photos, and that will yield -- like we chose private photos, and that yields over 1700 apps -- >> oh, my goodness. >> 1700? >> -- that could possibly help your child hide things on their phones. but then you take a step further and if you see the word open, that means the app is up and running on your kid's phone. that's an alarm bell. >> if you do find these on their phones, how are you supposed to handle it? i know you said you have to treat it like a privilege, not a right. >> remove it right away. there's no question. sit down and tell them why they should not be hiding things from you. if that conversation is not enough, if you still don't trust your child's judgment, consider installing software, watchdog software like net nanny that helps you monitor their photos and texts and everything they're sending on their phones then lastly, if they are doing something wrong, give an appropriate punishment. take away that device. >> yes. >> you're the parent. whatever will get the message across. >> it's the most effective discipline, far and away. >> oh, it is.
