2:37 am
and the attacker didn't know who he was going to hit as he ran up that street. he ended up killing that american, injuring two arabs and at least ten other people. >> the randomness makes it so much more terrifying. abc's molly hunter live in jerusalem. molly, thank you so much for that report. the man suspected of shooting an idaho pastor six times last weekend has been arrested at the white house. the secret service says kyle odom allegedly threw flash drives and other objects over the south fence last night. the pastor regained consciousness yesterday. the motive is unknown. authorities knew the suspect had flown to washington. the kansas factory, the scene of a workplace shooting, is set to reopen for business tomorrow. excel industries is giving workers an opportunity to return to the factory today to work through their emotions. employee cedric ford killed three people last month before being shot dead by police. the motive remains a mystery. in florida, more explicit testimony in hulk hogan's $100 million lawsuit against gawker

in our next half hour, look at what really drove voters to the polls last night. trump's success last night came, and a new controversy did as well, from the republican front-runner calling on his supporters to raise their right hands in a sort of allegiance to trump. critics say it's a reminder of the third reich nazi salute. on "good morning america," trump was asked if the tone of his tactics should be toned down. >> maybe so, but, i mean, look, i have a tremendous following. we want to make america great again. it's a strong following. i don't know about the hitler comparison. i hadn't heard that. but it's a terrible comparison. i'm not happy about that, certainly. >> the former head of the anti-defamation league said seeing an audience of thousands of people raising their hands in what looks like a hail litler salute was offensive, obnoxious and disgusting. turning our focus overseas now and to an american who is dead after a series of attacks by palestinians in israel. vanderbilt university graduate student taylor force was killed in a stabbing rampage in the port city of jaffa.
3:06 am
force was a west point grad who had served in iraq and afghanistan. he was in israel as part of his mba program. the attacker ran against traffic along a popular seaside boulevard stabbing people as he went. he was shot and killed by police. all together, a dozen israelis were wounded in the attacks. vice president joe biden's trip to israel may have served as the trigger for the latest violence. as a result, israel is increasing security around him. during his two-day visit, biden is expected to meet with the israeli prime minister as well as the palestinian president. the pentagon says u.s. air strikes targeted a top isis leader last week in syria. an initial u.s. assessment says it is likely the leader omar al shishani was killed along with 12 additional isis fighters. also known as omar the chechnyan, he was considered the group's minister of war if confirmed, his death would be a major victory for u.s. efforts against isis. breaking overnight, the man

suspected of shooting an idaho pastor last weekend has been arrested at the white house. the secret service says kyle odom allegedly threw flash drives and other objects over south fence last night, and a law enforcement source tells abc news the suspect was tracked to washington on social media. pastor tim remington regained consciousness yesterday. the motive for his shooting is unknown. five fbi agents are under investigation this morning in connection with the deadly shooting outside an oregon refuge. prosecutors say the shooting of lavoy finicum by state troopers was justified. but the agents' actions do remain under that probe. we get more from pierre thomas with the new video. >> put the laser right there. put the bullet through the head. >> reporter: this just released cell phone video shows the final moments of robert finicum's life. the chaos caught on tape. racing away from a checkpoint with four passengers. nearly running over an fbi agent -- >> hang on. >> reporter: and a police roadblock. finicum, part of a group that had taken over a federal
3:08 am
wildlife refuge, is later fatally shot by oregon state troopers. that, too, caught on fbi surveillance tape. authorities deemed the killing justified. but two mystery shots that missed finicum fired right as he exited his truck have a team of fbi agents under scrutiny. >> go ahead, shoot me. >> reporter: you can clearly hear one of those shots hitting his truck, right here, as finicum jumps out of his vehicle. >> go ahead, shoot me. >> reporter: watch and listen again. >> go ahead, shoot me. >> reporter: local authorities believe they were fired by the fbi's elite hostage rescue team. if true, the agents apparently never reported those gunshots. so, did the agents mislead supervisors? authorities say finicum's reckless and dangerous actions led to his death, but his family claims he was unjustly executed. now with questions about a possible fbi cover-up, expect an explosion of conspiracy theories. pierre thomas, abc news, washington. the home depot will pay at least $19.5 million to consumers because of a data breach in 2014.
