>> markeith lloyd needs to turn himself in. not tonight. not tomorrow. he needs the call and turn himself in now. >> reporter: tonight, fellow officers are remembering debra clayton as a wife, mother to her son, and a tireless advocate for her community. >> i have personally known debra for 17 years. debra clayton is a hero, and she gave her life protecting the community that she loves. she will be deeply missed. >> and eva pilgrim with us live tonight. eva, i know authorities were asking the local news media not to carry aerial images as they were going door to door, not to tip off this guy. in the meantime, they were asking the community for help? >> reporter: that's right, david. police urgently wanting to find this guy. they are offering a $60,000 reward. lloyd had a lengthy violent criminal history. police want this guy off the streets, david. >> eva pilgrim leads us off from orlando. thank you. we turn next to winter weather alerts from california to new york. in fact, a state of emergency

rain on the way, david. >> kayna whitworth, our thanks to you, and rob marciano tonight. as we reported this system affecting states coast to coast, so let's get to ginger zee tonight. she is live with the track for us. hey, ginger. >> reporter: hey, david. 3 to more than 20 inches of rain fell in parts of california in the last week or so, so that floor is saturated, and that's why we see those flood watches and warnings. from the sierra to the bay area to idaho. another storm, tuesday into wednesday will drop to a half foot plus. so more landslides could happen. so certainly more mountain snow in the highest elevations. and to new york, there is snow and a wintery mix. eventually a midweek warmup, david. >> watching the whole country, ginger, thank you. we have new reporting this evening after the terror that played out inside the ft. lauderdale airport on friday. tonight, authorities telling abc news the suspect's original plan was to arrive in new york city on new year's eve. tmz obtaining this video inside terminal 2 showing the gunman
pulling out his weapon, and then firing. you can see the passengers behind him in the terminal hiding behind carts. others simply frozen in place. but tonight, was florida his original destination, and was he influenced by isis? here's our chief investigative correspondent, brian ross. >> reporter: as esteban santiago made his first appearance in court today, authorities told abc news that his initial intended destination was not ft. lauderdale, but new york. that he had made a reservation to fly into new york city on new year's eve but then, for an unknown reason, canceled it. instead santiago booked a $278 one-way ticket to ft. lauderdale. where, as this video obtained by tmz shows, he unleashed 34 seconds of terror. pulling his gun out of his waistband and opening fire. as he continues out of view, panicked passengers, many of them elderly, ran for cover, hiding behind baggage carts. police say santiago emptied his
9 millimeter semi-automatic handgun and then reloaded to keep shooting. five people were killed, six more wounded, in a scene of carnage that friends and family today say could have been prevented. >> he was having some mental problems, and he wasn't feeling right. >> reporter: his former girlfriend, michelle quinones says santiago became unhinged after a deployment to iraq in 2010 where he said two friends in his national guard unit were killed. but she says he couldn't get help from the veterans' hospital in puerto rico. >> and they did nothing. they didn't do anything. >> reporter: and santiago's life in anchorage, alaska was falling apart. court records show he was arrested for trying to strangle his girlfriend, but instead of jail was sent to anger management courses. in november, santiago went to the anchorage fbi office to say he was hearing voices. about isis, but after being briefly hospitalized for a mental examination, agents returned his handgun, saying they found no connection to terrorism. >> it would seem there were warning signs here. brian ross back with us tonight.
you have learned that the fbi is going through santiago's computer. >> they have recovered from a pawnshop in alaska, and they are going to determine if he was in touch with isis, and whether it's a fact or another one of his delusions, david. >> brian, thank you. next tonight, just 11 days until president-elect donald trump is inaugurated, and tonight, there is word his son-in-law, jared kushner, will hold a post as a senior white house adviser. the appointment of kushner, a young businessman with a number of real estate and business holdings himself, and there are questions over how he'll separate it all. mr. trump was asked about that today. he said, wait until wednesday, his news conference. in a tweet, he did weigh in on meryl streep. abc's cecilia vega at trump tower tonight. >> reporter: he is the son-in-law from big money with real estate investments all over the world. one of donald trump's closest confidants, and tonight, abc news learning that ivanka trump's husband, jared kushner, will take an official role in the west wing as a senior adviser to the president.
the president-elect praising his talents. >> i would love to have jared helping us on deals with other nations and see if we can do peace in the middle east and other things. he is very talented. he is a very talented guy. >> reporter: ethics experts split over his formal role in the trump administration and if it would violate nepotism laws, and with questions swirling about conflict of interest, he tells abc news he will resign from his job in his family's real estate empire, and divest substantial assets, but not fully. he also will not take a salary in the white house. at trump tower today, donald trump had little to say about his son-in-law's new role. >> we'll talk about that on wednesday. >> reporter: the president-elect looking ahead to his first formal press conference in six months. also not talking about the russian hacking. >> we'll talk to you about that
another time. >> reporter: or how he'll replace obamacare for more than 20 million people who rely on it. >> we'll see. >> reporter: but early this morning, he had a lot to say on twitter about this moment, meryl streep's golden globes acceptance speech. >> there was one performance this year that stunned me. it sank its hooks in my heart. not because it was good. it was -- there is nothing good about it. but it was effective, and it did its job. it was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter. someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back. >> reporter: the actress referring to this moment. >> i don't know what i said. i don't remember. >> reporter: trump talking about a reporter from "the new york times." >> it kind of broke my heart when i saw it, and i still can't get it out of my head because it wasn't in a movie. it was real life, and this
instinct to humiliate when it's modeled by someone powerful because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing. >> reporter: a three-time oscar winner with 19 academy award nominations, the most of any actor, and trump called her one of the most overrated actresses. also calling her a hillary flunky who lost big. saying, for the hundredth time, i never mocked a disabled reporter. would never do that. >> meryl streep and that room she was in represents a small slice of america. this was an anti-elite. this was a rejection of the elites. >> reporter: but in an interview just two years ago, trump named streep when asked about his favorite actresses. calling her, a quote, fine person. >> cecilia vega with us live tonight, and donald trump gave similar answer to many of the questions there today that you will find out wednesday. his first news conference in 168 days, and you're learning new details already tonight about ivanka trump's future? >> reporter: david, we're hearing that ivanka trump will be stepping down from her management role in the family
business, and her own business. we know she won't be playing a formal role in the white house, at least not immediately. >> cecilia vega on a very busy fifth avenue tonight. cecilia, thank you. next tonight, the capitol hill showdown. also brewing, several of president-elect trump's most controversial cabinet nominees scheduled for confirmation hearings that begin tomorrow. tonight though, there is outrage from some what say important ethics questions and reviews have not been completed. that they are being rushed through. abc's mary bruce on capitol hill tonight. >> reporter: with just 11 days to go, the president-elect sauntered off the elevator at trump tower confident his cabinet will be ready to go. >> it's going great. confirmation is going great. >> reporter: a flurry of confirmation hearings are set to begin tomorrow, but tonight, many of those nominees still have not been fully vetted. a top ethics official warning the schedule is putting undue pressure on investigators to rush through these important
reviews, saying, this hasn't happened in decades. >> all these procedural complaints are related to their frustration in not only having lost the white house, but having lost the senate. >> reporter: they are crying foul, saying the democrats, quote, need to grow up. a change of tune from when he sent this letter outlining demands for obama's nominees, asking their financial disclosures be submitted, and the ethics office reviews complete before their confirmation hearings. today, the senate democratic leader sent mcconnell's letter right back to him. >> we crossed out harry reid and mitch mcconnell, and put mitch mcconnell and chuck schumer. the very things mcconnell thought were necessary for nominations, we're asking for, and now they're denying it. >> you doing they are playing by their own rules? >> correct. >> reporter: first up, senator jeff sessions for attorney general. today, protests outside his capitol hill office. sessions was previously rejected
for a federal judgeship 31 years ago over allegations he made racist remarks. charges he has fiercely denied. >> i am not a racist. >> reporter: today, trump backed his pick. >> i think he'll do great. high-quality man. >> reporter: then rex tillerson, trump's controversial pick for secretary of state. the former exxonmobil ceo is expected to be grilled about his cozy ties with russia. trump defended close relationships with russia. trump tweeting, having a good relationship with russia is a good thing. only stupid people or fools would think that it is bad. >> and mary bruce with us live from capitol hill tonight. and mary, you're learning more about rex tillerson's business dealings with other countries that may come up with this week? >> reporter: david, under tillerson's leadership, we learn exxonmobil did business with iran, syria and sudan. through a european subsidiary. though technically legal, it's likely to spark questions, especially since there are
u.s. sanctions, david. >> a busy week ahead for them and you, mary. thank you. there is much more ahead on "world news tonight" this monday. the security breach, and violent takedown. you will see it. the suspect who tried to force his way through tsa and get on a flight. accused of attacking police and tsa officers, and you will hear the call for help. also tonight, the american diplomat ambushed. the attack caught on camera right there. there is news tonight coming in about the suspect. and later right here, under the sea. president obama as we have never seen him before. where was this captured? we'll be right back. and my life is basketball. but that doesn't stop my afib from leaving me at a higher risk of stroke. that'd be devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years. until i learned more about once-daily xarelto®... a latest-generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto® significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood-clotting factors.
xarelto® is selective. targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well-managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle-related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto®. insurance changes? xarelto® has you covered.

>> reporter: it was just before 5:00 sunday morning as malik neal made his way from that tsa checkpoint into the gate area. now with airport security joining, the nine-minute incident. tsa officers and airport security don't have arrest authority. >> we need a taser squad! >> reporter: and the suspect put up a fight. two tsa officers, and two chicago police officers, who arrived at the gate, were injured. >> our subject's in cuffs. >> reporter: an incident after ft. lauderdale, and others, raising concerns. >> we have had three serious catastrophic incidents and now a security breach at the front side. which isn't catastrophic, but it points to a vulnerability. >> reporter: fixing those will be up to local governments which are responsible for airport security, david. >> david kerley with us. thanks, david. when we come back here, the important headline for women tonight. the new health alert involving mammograms. and the gunman allegedly opening fire on a diplomat. how authorities are planning to
