we'll have the concert in a little bit. >> our top story, a string of shootings targeting cars on a phoenix highway, rattling the nerves of drivers and the police. nbc national correspondent miguel almaguer spent time with officers as they went searching for clues. good morning to you. >> hey, matt. good morning. late breaking news for our viewers out west. police tell us they are investigating another potential incident here on interstate 10. another vehicle with a shattered window just a short time ago. if confirmed, this would be the 11th incident in the area. police also tell us they believe there could be multiple shoot g shootings out here. along interstate 10 in phoenix, swo zone zen. desperate desperate to find a shooter, someone who has innocent drivers in their crosshairs. >> very terrifying for them. >> this morning, no suspects, no car description. just a growing number of
vehicles riddled with bullet holes or projectiles that nearly took the lives of those behind the wheel. now the news there may be multiple shooters. >> i am of the opinion right now that we have multiple shooters just because the m.o.s have changed. >> the highway patrol took us along a stretch of roadway that could be the most dangerous in the nation. ten instants here in 12 days, at least along i-10, the others all nearby. the majority, gunfire. robert mcdonald was alone, driving this tour bus when a bullet sliced through the seat just behind him. >> had the bullet bib a little more powerful, it would have come this far from my shoulder. if i would have moved my head, i would have got hit. >> police now call the shooters or shooter a domestic terrorist. many scared to drive i-10 are calling the fear of the beltway sniper in 2002. criminal profilers who worked that case say the shooter here
is also feeding on terror. >> he knows the time he wants to be out there. he knows the location. and realize, he and his mind is playing this chess game with the authorities. >> with police investigating what could be an 11th incident, they say they're fortunate so far no one has been seriously hurt. >> thanks. politics now and mixed new this morning for donald trump. support for his campaign is growing according to a newly released national poll, but he's also at the center of yet another controversy this morning. more on that and also the democratic side of the campaign covered. let's start with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. good morning. >> good morning to you. there's more evidence this morning that donald trump's surge is no summer fling. get this, a new cnn national poll shows trump with his biggest support yet. the first gop presidential candidate to top 30%. there are your numbers. he's at 32% right now.
his closest competitor is ben carson. he's in second with 19%. together, these two nonpoliticians hold the support of a majority of the republicans. that other number we showed you was a third of republican women support trump right now. that number is up double digits in a month. even as trump is under new scrutiny for comments about his only female opponent. donald trump under fire again. this time, for comments to "rolling stone" about the only republican woman in the field, carly fiorina. look at thas face, trump is quoted as saying. would anyone vote for that. could you imagine that, the face of our next president? adding, i mean, she's a woman, and i'm not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. are we serious? late wednesday, fiorina said she viewed trump's words as very serious. >> maybe i'm getting under his skin a little bit because i am climbing in the polls. >> this morning, trump insists he wasn't criticizing her looks.
>> i'm talking about her per sona. she's not going to be president. >> trump is pushing back after ben carson who is clipping away at his lead in the polls, seemed to question trump's faith. >> i'm a believer, big league, in god, in the bible. he questioned my faith and he doesn't know me? you look at his faith, and i think you're not going to find so much. >> on wednesday, trump headlined a rally on capitol hill taking aim at the iran nuclear deal. >> nefrk, ever, ever in my life have i seen any transaction so incompetently negotiated as our deal with iran. and i mean never. >> and trashing the president. >> we are led by very, very stupid people. >> trump also attacks hillary clinton, answering questions from nbc's kelly o'donnell about whether or not clinton was right to apologize for her use of a person e-mail server while secretary of state. >> well, i think she should have
apologized a long time ago. i think she's long beyond apologies, frankly. i think what she did is very dangerous for the country, very bad for the country, and we'll see what happens. but she has problems, no question about it. >> all the republicans come to southern california next wednesday. that is the republican debate. you'll have donald trump against jeb bush against carly fiorina, and now against ben carson as well. as for that iran deal, the white house has already locked up the votes it needs to stop congress from blocking the deal. still, on wednesday, iran's supreme leader ruled out new negotiations with the u.s. beyond a nuclear deal and predicted israel would not exist in just 25 years. more to consider. savannah, back to you. >> peter alexander in washington, thank you. it's going to be a busy day of campaigning for democratic front-runner ric ric as she dealed with her own set of challenges including a new batch of troubling poll numbers. kristen welker is in ohio. good morning to you. >> matt, good morning to you. secretary clinton will be
rallying her base here in the battleground state of ohio, and later today, she'll hold an event in milwaukee. both events aimed at women voters who are critical to secretary clinton. this comes amid new warning signs. the latest quinnipiac poll out this morning shows bernie sanders now edges clinton 41% to 40% in iowa. sanders tramed clinton by 21 points the last time it was conducted. while other polls have clinton leading, this is one of several recent indicators showing sanders gaining strength and clinton struggling in the wake of her e-mail controversy. clinton is rebooting her campaign, and aides tell me they want clinton to show more of a personality. that's one reason she'll appear of "ellen lae" later today. in one moment, she dances, and in another, she answers a question about her age. >> they're saying if you're elected, you would be one of the oldest presidents elected. does that matter? don't we want experience more than anything? isn't that important?
>> i think it's very important. but the way i look at it is i would be the youngest woman ever elected president. >> looming over all this, vice president joe biden who is still considering whether to get into this race. he'll be in new york today and later appear on the late show with stephen colbert. all eyes will be watching to see if he gives any clue about what he's going to do. matt, savannah. >> kristen welker, thank you. now to a disturbing case of mistaken identity here in new york city. former tennis star james blake slammed to the ground by police after they mistook him for someone else. stephanie gosk is here with that story. good morning. >> good morning, savannah. overnight, the nypd released a statement saying internal affairs investigators have reviewed surveillance tape of this incident and one officer has been place on modified assignment, but the investigation continues. >> what would you like to hear from them?
>> an apology. >> a frustrated james blake, retired u.s. tennis star shaken up shortly after being reported, tackled, and rahandcuffed by th nypd. >> it shouldn't have happen and it's something we'll deal with with the police and find out whey they have to say, and hopefully there's video of it and people can see what happened. >> blake says he was sta outside a hotel texting when without warning a plain-clothes officer charged and tackled him. the former world number four ranked player who said he was just waiting for a car to the u.s. open, was handcuffed as four additional plain-clothes officers arrived. officers subsequently determined who blake was and let him go. police sources say they were working on an idinty theft ring on the area of blake's hotel, and a witness pointed out the tennis player along with a legitimate suspect. he stopped short of calling it
racial profiling, insisting it was more of a case of excessive force. he told new york daily news, to me, it's as simple as unnecessary police force no matter what my race is. in my mind, there's probably a race factor involved, but no matter what, there's no reason for anybody to do that to anybody. blake says he hopes that surveillance video will be released to the public, and later today, he's giving a press conference to tell his story. back to you. today he's giving a press conference to tell his story.st guys, back to you. >> all right, stephanie, thank you very much. natalie is in now, she has got a powerful storm that hit this area overnight, causing a lot of damage. that's right. we are going to start with the video out of japan this morning, some dramatic pictures there after parts of the country were pummelled for a second day with torrential rain that sparked massive flooding. two people are missing and 170,000 people were evacuated. rescue helicopters flew over neighborhoods north of tokyo, plucking residents from the roofs of their homes. officials say they can't keep up though with homes were washed away by flood
waters, some areas have seen nearly two feet of rain since monday night. eight days after the deadly shooting of an illinois police officer, coroner says he can't rule anything out, including homicide or suicide. the lake county coroner says that lieutenant joseph gliniewicz died from a single devastating gunshout wound but says he needs the findings of police before he can rule on its nature. the officer's death is still being investigated as a homicide, but police are largely working off gliniewicz's own call before the shooting saying he was pursuing three individuals. now to the latest on the two high school football players uzcused of intentionally attacking and ramming a referee. officials are now questioning whether the coaches should have done more to calm emotions in a very tense game. kerry sanders is snaan antonio with the latest. good morning. good morning, natalie. today is when attention turns to tomorrow's high school football game. friday night lights, of course,
is part of the fabric of texas. while the team here at john jay high school will take the field, it will be minus the two players, held responsible for that horrific attack on the ref. and the game will be played like, unlike any other, because there will be security both a ufand on the field. this morning, new photos of referee robert watts immediately after he was violently taken down by two high school football players. his face red and looking dazed. his injuries requiring a doctor's care. at an emergency meeting of the group that oversees texas high school athletics one official ticked off a litany of problems with the game. >> in this ball game, there were multiple ejections, punches thrown, unsportsmanlike penalties, arguing with officials. that seems to me like a time bomb waiting to happen and it did happen. i didn't see any leadership coming from the coaching staff. >> one member of that staff, assistant coach mack reed, is
being accused by some of making comment that may have instigated the attack. he's now on administrative leave and could not be reached for comment. >> whether or not the coach uttered any words that led the kids to believe that they could do what they did, it is not reason enough for those kids to have assaulted that referee. >> and there are player allegations that watts used racial slurs before he was attacked. his lawyer denies that and says the players should be punished for what they did. >> how can you say anything other than this was a heinous crime? >> despite reports that suggest otherwise, the body that governs high school football here in texas has not, repeat, not called for the team here at john jay high school to be completely disbanded. >> kerry sanders in san antonio with a still developing story there. thank you. and life in the fast lane. take a look. here's skateboarding video that's getting tons of attne. you can see why.

morning over a nationwide outbreak of sal monella that is linked to cucumbers. people have been affected in 30 states leading to at least two deaths. >> the tainted cucumbers were grown and packaged in mexico. and the california-based company has now recalled its limited edition brand. we want to turn to nbc medical contributor dr. natalie azaur. a lot of people are looking and wondering, a lot of these cacumbers don't necessarily have packaging. if you think you have a sickness, what are the symptoms? >> expoesh toor salmonella will typically cause symptoms from 12 to 72 hours after injection. typically, fever, abdominal cramping and diarrhea. it's a self limited illness. resolves in four to seven days without antibiotics. >> can we talk about who's most vulnerable? the infections range in people
from a year old to 99 years old. more than half the cases reported in people under 18 years of age. is that a convince dnls? >> not a coincidence. we talk about the vulnerable groups being the elderly and the young and people with compromised immune systems. children are uniquely vulnerable for a number of reasons. one is their small body weight and secondly they're more likely to get diarrhea. it's also harder to pick up signs of dehydration. >> some can result in death. how do you know it's time to go to the hospital? >> just to review the signs of dehydration and general principles would be a decreased thirst, degreases urine output, in the old and the young, it's harder to tell. one pearl to leave you with is the color of your urine. normal is light yellow to clear. once it becomes dark or amber colored it's a sign of dehydration. can would caution all people to call their family physicians for their guidance in terms of home instruction and which to be
hospitalized. >> thank you very much. coming up, safe and forgiveness. lester holt shares his emotional interview with the survivors of the charleston church shooting. >> plus, why don't more school buses in the u.s. have seat belts? what do you have? >> hey, matt and savannah. good morning to you. that's the question so many of us putting our kids on the school bus this morning to go into school, and many of them don't have seat belts across the country. this morning, a live television event. we're going to crash this school bus live. inside, we have child dummies that could be your children. they're not belted in. you'll see exactly what's going to happen and why aren't there more seat belts on buses? first, this is "today" on nbc. on school buss? first this is "today" on nbc.

if the bus is hit from the front or the back, they should stay in this little comp part.. >> reporter: but she says when the bus is hit from the side or rolls over, these not enough. just watch this crash test video. these dummies don't have seat belts on. now, look at the dumb nation do. big difference. they stay in their seats. so, why don't all states require seat belts on buses? i went straight to the national highway traffic safety administration. would safety bells make them even safer? absolutely. >> odd big meeting about this summer and you just said, seat belts make school buses safer. will nhtsa regulate that? >> this fall, we are going to come out with some action and that could be inclusive of seat belts, very likely to be at the top of the list. witness. all due respect, nhtsa has been looking a this the for a long time. what do you say to parents putting their kids on buses today, they don't want to wait. >> you bet. and right now, putting them on
the big yellow school bus is still the safest way to get to school. >> reporter: so we are going to stay on top of nhtsa and federal government to fee there is action this fall and we will keep you posted on that. i'm inside the bus right now. i'm not sure you can tell the entire front is smashed in. school buses are some of the safest transportation there is and you can see they are meant and there is video of that crash we did live moments ago here on "today," the front is meant to crash in and protect the children inside. now i want to show you some of the video inside camera of those dummies and what happened at the -- you can see they get jostled around that girl goes right into the middle of the floor. if we come here live, a couple of the things country see, by the way, here's that girl, right on the floor like. this can you imagine that if that was your child? what you can't see is these accidents. look at the dents that it makes in the seat and the level of impact there. but once again, this is an important topic. critics say if you put seat belts on school buses, the kid does buckle themselves wrong who is going to make sure they do it right? it is a tough debate.
they are made, kids unseat belted, for a crash like, this the proponents of seat belts say what happens when you get the side collision or the tipover? i'm glad we did this and i hope it helps this morning, guys. jeff, we were saying as we were watching it here, our kids are all so conditioned to put the seatbelts on when they get in our car, we have good confidence two do it right if they got in the school bus? >> you wonder why it is not standard. i was talking to a parent yesterday who said that their 5-year-old daughter was on a school bus and actually came home crying because the mother had told her all those years, if you don't put on your seat belt, something very dangerous can happen. these kids get on the school bus, it there are no seat belts. >> my son is on a school bus every morning and just on the rough roads in new york, i mean, they get bounced around, let alone in an accident. >> great story, jeff. thank you very much. coming up on trending, the yoga mat that rolls up all by itself. and next, from the orange room, let's just say it appears carson has some explaining to

so, obama won't have to address this issue. >> how about this english dance duo, disclosure and sam smith? >> yeah. well, it was recently announced that the three of them have collaborated on the theme to the next james bond movie but the first thing we have is oman, this song from the new second disclosure album, disclosure did so much to make that dance pop sound that justin bieber is working on now part of our lives and this record is -- looks like it is going to be the party tape of the season. miguel is on it. the weekend. lorde. guest vocalist. and the -- the disclosure duo worked with all those artists face to face in the studio, they weren't e-mailing tracks back and forth. so, expect a really human, cool-sounding record. >> fantastic. >> mclemore and ryan lewis. your song. >> downtown. >> yeah. >> downtown. >> this -- this will be an interesting record. we have heard two songs so far, one is a song for macklemore's new daughter, the other is

made a simple tripvere chto the grocery storeis anything but simple. so finally, i had an important conversation with my dermatologist about humira. he explained that humira works inside my body to target and help block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to my symptoms. in clinical trials, most adults saw 75% skin clearance. and the majority were clear or almost clear in just 4 months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. ask your dermatologist about humira. because with humira clearer skin is possible.
