3:01 am
overseas trip that was supposed to focus on economics but quickly moved to terrorism. but leaving malaysia the president promised that he would destroy isis. but on sunday the top democrats on the senate intelligence committee told cbs news the president's plan is not sufficient. this as the capital of belgium, brussels, remains on lockdown. the investigation in paris continues. and as americans enter one of the busiest travel weeks of the year. according to a new poll, 83% of registered voters believe a large-scale terror attack in the u.s. is likely in the near future. we have reports from paris, new york, and washington. but we start with debora patta in brussels. >> reporter: brussels remains a city in lockdown tonight with several police operations under way as a strict alert remains at its highest level for the country's capital. the metro is still not open, and tomorrow the security measures will become even more drastic for the unprecedented closure of the capital schools.
3:02 am
a top-level security meeting was held in the city earlier. belgium's prime minister, jean michel, stressed the threat of an attack remains serious and imminent. "we are worried about an attack like those in paris with several individuals," he said. "possibly targeting commercial centers, streets, or public transport." still at large is salah abdeslam, europe's most wanted man and a prime suspect in the paris attacks. authorities believe he might be in belgium. his last known destination. but police have their hands full as they are also hunting for several more men in connection with this latest terror threat against brussels. abdeslam's brother, mohammed, made another appeal on local television today for him to turn himself over to police. "we'd rather see salah in jail," he said, "than in a cemetery." while belgian police widen their security net, the first images

of the french raid in saint-denis last wednesday have emerged. the shootout lasted seven hours, and more than 5,000 bullets were fired. [ gunfire ] when it was over, three people had been killed, including the suspected ringleader of the paris attacks and eight more had been arrested. brussels is certainly a lot more tense tonight. security forces patrolling the streets have been stepped up. and not far from here a number of police operations are under way. in fact, one is just finished here on the square. but police have urged both the media and the public to stop reporting their movements on social media as this could compromise their security. jeff? >> debora patta in brussels. debora, thank you very much. here in the u.s. it is one of if not the biggest travel week of the year, and there have already been scares. more now from jaimie yuccas at lagardia.
3:04 am
>> reporter: they will see extra officers park, tro office,s, patrol dogs and guns at virtually every destination in the country. homeland security secretary jeh johnson says his agency is ready for anything. >> i always hesitate to rank threats, but the potential copycat, the lone wolf actor is one that we're continually focused on. >> reporter: lines at the airports will be longer and slower. the tsa says it will handle 25 million passengers this week with enhanced screening. new york passenger sherry tropan left for miami today. >> we're all a little bit more aware of the increased security now and that people may be a little more nervous. >> reporter: if travelers are nervous, so are the airlines. just this week southwest delayed or diverted three flights. in two cases passengers were afraid when fellow flyers spoke arabic.
3:05 am
today three passengers said to be acting suspiciously on a flight from indianapolis to los angeles forced a diversion to kansas city. phony bomb threats redirected three flights this week from the u.s. headed overseas, including a turkish airlines flight to istanbul this morning. today in new york city police held a three-hour active shooter drill in the city's subway system. for the first time their drill included an attacker in a suicide vest. >> we have now beefed up our resources that we're in a position to handle a significant number of events going on simultaneously or sequentially. >> reporter: the department of homeland security says there are no credible threats anywhere in the u.s. >> we urge you to continue to travel. go to public events. go to public places. and know that our folks are on the job. >> reporter: extra security measures are also in place for overseas flights headed into the united states. jeff? >> jamie, thank you very much.
3:06 am
concerns about terrorism are also playing out in the presidential campaign. a new cbs news poll shows about 40% of republicans in early voting states say their choice of a candidate was at least somewhat influenced by the paris attacks. in all three states, iowa, new hampshire, and south carolina, donald trump has a commanding lead. here's julianna goldman. >> reporter: with national security concerns rising, donald trump leads the republican pack. retired neurosurgeon ben carson is slipping. and senators ted cruz and marco rubio are gaining ground. >> i'm leading every poll by a lot. it's not even a little bit anymore. >> reporter: in the wake of the paris attacks, at least 2/3 of republican voters in the three early contests say a candidate must agree with them on how to handle isis in order to get their vote. an overwhelming majority favor sending u.s. ground troops to the middle east to fight the terrorist group. today trump built on his controversial policy prescriptions, saying he would
3:07 am
resume waterboarding, create a watch list for refugees, and monitor mosques. >> i think waterboarding is peanuts compared to what they do to us. >> reporter: in another new poll, 25% of new hampshire primary voters say trump is best equipped to handle the u.s. response to isis. rubio lags behind with 13%. >> what happened in paris could ha paris cou >> i obviously am not>> i obvios about the events that happened last week in paris, but i thinkt it suddenly has cast -- forced americans to confront more carefully the issue of national security. >> reporter: the rise of rubio and cruz has come at the expense of ben carson, whose campaign admits the retired neurosurgeon has been hurt by the focus on national security. >> who's got the most experience? i don't know that it necessarily comes down to politics. it comes down to practical experience. >> reporter: to burnish his foreign policy credentials carson's campaign is considering a foreign trip ahead of iowa,
3:08 am
asia, australia, and africa have been mentioned. jeff, a campaign official says ,

3:10 am
french president francois hollande is visiting several world leaders this week, including president obama at the white house on tuesday. back in paris, a return to normalcy has been elusive. elizabeth palmer is there. >> reporter: if you're young enough, paris feels as enchanted as ever. the big department stores have decked out their windows, and a christmas market stretches down the champs elysees. closed for four days right after the attacks, the stall owners have lost a lot of business. and now they're open again, says margo, sales are slow. there are not as many people walking? >> many people walking, yes.
3:11 am
but so many people walking here and so many people don't pay. >> reporter: nobody's spending the way they usually do. >> very difficult. >> reporter: business is down all over. by a third in the restaurants and cafes. and the chamber of commerce says hotel revenues are down by half, as tourists cancel their plans. lily carvallo and ken eisner bucked the trend. but. >> there is like a black cloud around it. >> reporter: reinforced by the sight of heavily armed soldiers all over the city. >> this constant awareness that you don't know what is going to be hit next or it will, or if there is any place safe. >> reporter: since the attacks the french have rallied around national symbols. and that's been good news for the cogniaume family who make flags in what's not normally a flag-waving country says enzo. >> when you have a french flag
3:12 am
on yourself or in your house, it's an act of patriotism. >> reporter: and a declaration that terrorism will not defeat the values of the french republic. of course economies do bounce back after terrorist attacks. but in this case this is the second one in less than a year. and jeff, the french government has warned that there may be more of them. >> liz palmer, thank you. the security team for pope francis nearly doubled in size last week. just before his visit to africa, which begins wednesday. and as allen pizzey reports, the extra security was evident today at the vatican. >> reporter: the ramped-up security was in place long before the faithful even began to arrive. armed police from italy's numerous forces were on every corner. everyone who arrived for the pope's weekly angeles was checked, bags opened, random pat-downs. that was just to get into the street in front of st. peter's basilica. the line stretched for several
3:13 am
blocks for those wanting to enter the square itself. that involved another layer including metal detectors. the security wasn't just a reaction to the paris attacks. some months ago the cover of the isis online magazine had a photoshop of their flag flying from the obelisk in the center of the square. the implied threat didn't worry this couple from st. petersburg, florida. >> we feel like the carabinieri are doing a good job. they're all over the place. we don't feel as if anything could happen at this point. obviously it always could. but we feel fairly safe. >> reporter: pope francis is known to be indifferent to his own security. but aides say he is deeply concerned for those who flock to see him. the only way to ensure complete security in a place like this is to stop the terrorists well before they reach the target. but as both sides know only too well, the police have to get it right every time. the terrorists only have to get lucky once. allen pizzey, cbs news, rome. the city of chicago is on
3:14 am
edge just before the release of a video showing a white police officer shooting and killing a black teen. jericka duncan has more on this. >> reporter: 17-year-old lakwan mcdonald was shot 16 times in october of last year. his family's attorney, jeff meslin, has seen the police dash cam video. >> first shot or two seemed to spin him to the ground. he falls down. he's down on the ground. and then for the next 30 seconds or so in this video the officer just continues to shoot. >> reporter: a judge ordered the video be made public by wednesday after the city rejected several freedom of information requests. police superintendent gary mccarthy says they are prepared for possible violent protests. >> we will facilitate people's first amendment right to free speech. we will facilitate protest, quite frankly. but we will be intolerant of criminal behavior. >> reporter: community activists are calling for calm. but reverend jesse jackson acknowledges people are
3:15 am
frustrated. >> people are disgusted and many are angry. most are angry. the question becomes when will the cup runneth over? >> reporter: the night mcdonald was shot authorities say he had a four-inch folding knife and pcp in his system. office yes jason van dyke's attorney dan herbert says mcdonald's behavior was erratic. >> he firmly believed he was in fear for his life and he was concerned about the life of his fellow officers. >> reporter: the mcdonald family reached a $5 million settlement. jeff, the attorneys for the mcdonald's say the family has no interest in seeing that dash cam video. >> jericka duncan, thank you very much. still ahead here, police identify a suspect after a stunning shooting of a medical student in new orleans. and the growing thr i have asthma... of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults

3:18 am
in southern california this weekend it still feels like summer, with temps in the mid 80s in l.a. but that may not be true for long as the focus turns to winter and what could be an historic el nino. here's ben tracy. >> reporter: it's already a winter wonderland in california's mountains, and they're expecting a lot more snow. scientists say a massive el nino in the pacific is still getting stronger. these warm ocean waters near the equator forced the jet stream that usually dumps rain on central america north, bringing
3:19 am
a conveyor belt of storms to california and the southern u.s. >> this current el nino has now surpassed the 1997-98 el nino, which was the biggest on record. so it's huge. >> reporter: josh willis is a climate scientist with nasa. he says el ninos typically impact southern california. but this one is so big it will hit the entire state. why is it important that a lot of these storms hit northern california? >> our water supply is tied to northern california, and it's been in a drought for more than a decade. >> reporter: california's largest reservoirs are in northern california, and they are at historic lows. but el nino comes at a cost. those storms in the winter of '97-98 caused half a billion dollars in damage and killed 17 people in california. still, after four years of intense drought, the state needs all the rain and snow it can get. ben tracy, cbs news.
3:20 am
following a dramatic shooting. surveillance footage shows the victim peter gold, a tulane medical student, being shot as he tried to stop a gunman who was dragging a woman into an suv. the suspect tried to shoot gold again in the head, but the gun jammed. gold is expected to survive. the suspect is 21-year-old euric cain, whose criminal record includes weapons charges. up next, the boots that are back. big-time.

3:22 am
winter weather means a busy time for fashion brands, always trying to stay ahead of the latest trend. but as one old school retailer is discovering, sometimes the best way to keep current is to
3:23 am
remain the same. here's don dahler. >> reporter: they're rubber-bottomed, terminally unsexy, and virtually unchanged for over 100 years. and yet, l.l. bean cannot make its signature duck boot fast enough. >> we've hired well over 100 people and are in various stages of training. >> hey, bobby. >> reporter: according to manufacturing chief royce haines, back orders are reaching 60,000. >> we're doing everything we can do to build boots. we build them one pair at a time. >> reporter: the reason for the rush is a mystery. inexplicably, the boots have hit the catwalk and have been spotted on the fashionable feet of actress kerry washington. duck boots have inspired designer tommy hilfiger. and kanye west recently launched his yeezy duck boot. all that buzz has not hurt bean. sales have tripled in three years and are projected to hit
3:24 am
half a million this year. and now women have surpassed men as the primary customers. >> it's a trend. it's a fashion thing. it's a desire. you're asking me to figure out why a woman does what she does. it's the wrong question to ask. >> reporter: the bean boot was the very first product designed in 1912 by outdoorsman leon leonwood bean. >> and he came back from a hunting trip with wet soggy feet wearing footwear that was available, most likely all leather. >> reporter: bean came one his shoe with a rubber bottom creating the classic bean boot, still sold today. tricked out a bit for new customers, but traditional tan and brown for the diehard fans. >> i've heard it said that the boot is like an old friend. those that have bought boots, we see boots that are 30, 40 years old and they send them back to be rebuilt because they don't want to get rid of them. >> reporter: with three shifts and more workers, bean is hand-producing 50,000 pairs a month and bracing for the holiday rush.

we close tonight inside a school for clowns where volunteers get a crash course for the macy's thanksgiving day parade. here's contessa brewer. >> reporter: college is not all fun and games. >> whoo! >> reporter: even for a bunch of clowns. at clown u there are tough lessons. >> one, two, three. >> reporter: and rules to follow. no cell phones, no smoking, no drinking. >> drinking drinking.

>> you mean water. >> you mentioned going to the bathroom? that's not easy. >> reporter: karen mccarty's a true professional with the big apple circus in new york. as a professor she's seen a lot of freshman jitters. >> a lot of times they're imagining being in front of that many people. >> reporter: but they get over it fast. and if you think it's crazy to get a whip nae nae lesson in a lecture hall, wait till you get a load of the lab. >> whoever has an itch turn to someone in the audience. >> reporter: it's all about funny business. >> as you're walking away look over your shoulder. you'll see people scratching. >> reporter: where assignments for the thanksgiving day parade include pinwheeling, interpretive dance, and of course horsing around. >> to be a clown is to be as human as possible and to project that. exaggeratedly human. >> i'm going to do a swoosh motion. >> reporter: at clown u you don't have to be born a clown.
3:29 am
you can learn it. like returning volunteer john plotsky. >> do you remember the lessons when you're actually out there on the parade route? >> yeah. it helps. it gets you focused as a team and a group and gets in the spirit of the holiday. >> reporter: this may be the only school where landing at the top of the class is a piece of cake. contessa brewer, cbs news, new york. that is the overnight news for this monday. for some of you the news continues. for others check back with us a little later for the morning news and "cbs this morning." from the broadcast center in new york city, i'm jeff glor.
3:30 am
>> announcer: this is the "cbs overnight news." welcome to the overnight news. i'm jeff glor. president obama is back at the white house this morning following an overseas trip that was supposed to focus on economics but was quickly dominated by talk of the terror attacks in paris. margaret brennan was traveling with the president in asia. >> that's the primary power that these terrorists have over us. the most powerful tool we have to fight isil is to say that we're not afraid. >> reporter: the president said actions like attempts to block refugees from settling in the u.s., an idea that's being advocated by some republicans, is a betrayal of american values. and he downplayed isis's
3:31 am
strength. yet the president still called on other countries to join in the military coalition and said he directly appealed to russia's vladimir put tony start air strikes against isis rather than the u.s.-backed rebels in syria. >> it would be helpful if russia directs its focus on isil. and i do think that as a consequence of isil claiming responsibility for bringing down their plane there is an increasing awareness on the part of president putin that isil poses a greater threat to them than anything else in the region. >> reporter: but that is an unlikely alliance because the two countries back competing sides in the syrian civil war. on tuesday president obama will meet with the president of france, a country that has intensified its role in the air strikes. >> president obama's plan to resettle 10,000 syrian refugees
3:32 am
in the u.s. became more controversial last week, both on capitol hill and on the campaign trail. julianna goldman reports. >> reporter: donald trump called for a database to monitor syrian refugees. >> i do want a database for those people coming in. >> reporter: an attempt to clarify where he stands amid an uproar over last week's seeming endorsement of a mandatory registry for muslims living in the u.s. >> so here's the story. just to set it clear. i want surveillance of these people. >> reporter: several of trump's rivals have said the idea of a national database to track muslims was a bridge too far. but since the paris attacks many gop presidential hopefuls have contributed to the anti-refugee fervor like john kasich, new hampshire. >> i don't want syrian refugees to come here now because we don't know who they are. >> reporter: that rhetoric has been widely criticized by faith-based groups who lead efforts to resettle refugees, and evangelicals are a key demographic in republican
3:33 am
primaries. >> there is panic that's being fed for political reasons. >> reporter: linta hartke is the ceo of the lutheran immigration and refugee service. >> i again certainly think those who imagine and would say we should just suspend the arrival of any syrians into this country or any muslims into this country is really over the top. >> reporter: but a recent survey from the public religion research institute showed 73% of white evangelical protestants feel that the values of islam are at odds with american values. a sentiment about muslims shared by this self-described christian at today's trump rally. >> i have to stop and think about our home country because they have been so vocal to say they want to be the sole people on this earth and it's their way or no way really. >> reporter: that survey was conducted before the paris attacks, but it helps explain why republican presidential hopefuls are taking a harder line on the refugee issue.
3:34 am
we also know that several religious organizations resettling refugees around the country have been threatened in the last week. julianna goldman, cbs news, washington. senator rand paul introduced legislation that would impose a moratorium on resettling any refugees from 34 high-risk countries. that includes syria. john dickerson spoke to paul on "face the nation." >> you had some efforts this week to block syrian refugees and people from other countries that you thought were dangerous. but in the conversation today the worry seems to be from experts is more about the visa waivers, which is to say people who could come in through europe, these countries where you don't need the kind of screening that you would have with refugees. why isn't that the bigger problem? >> well, i think it's all of the above. my bill would have addressed refugees, students, visitors, and those who want to immigrat s from countries that have significant jihadist movements. but even just isolating on the refugee thing for a moment, we had two iraqi refugees come to my home town, bowling green,
3:35 am
kentucky, and then proceeded to want to buy stinger missiles. turns out one of them had fingerprints in our database system because he had his fingerprints on a bomb fragment from iraq, and yet we didn't catch him. so this was just a couple years ago. we were not vetting refugees adequately. the boston bombers also came here as refugees and became radicalized. so i think that for the president to say there's no danger is incorrect. but i do agree with those who say the visa waiver program is a problem. there are many french citizens who want to attack their government and want to attack us, and we have no program for screening them. i say they should all come in through global entry, sort of a frequent flyer program where you have to get a background check or you have to wait 30 days. right now we have nothing in place and i think we are at a great deal of risk from a variety of sources, refugees but also visa waiver nations. >> you have consistently been cautioning your party about overseas military involvements, and you've said on these issues be strong in the homeland, keep them from coming in. but has the paris -- has the
3:36 am
growth of isis changed your mindset in terms of this argument that you've got to go get them there, you've got to fight isis in iraq and syria, degrade them in their operating space so that they don't even get a chance to come to america? >> i think the first thing we have to do is learn from our history. in the past several decades if there's one true thing in the middle east, it's that when we've toppled secular dictators we've gotten chaos and the rise of radical islam. so by toppling saddam hussein we're still suffering that chaos. by toppling gadhafi in libya we got chaos, a failed state. and a third of libya now pledges allegiance to isis. by pouring weapons into the syrian civil war on the side of islamic rebels who are actually allied with al qaeda and some of whom became isis, that was a mistake. so the ultimate solution, if we want a long-lasting victory and a lasting -- a long-lasting peace, what we're going to have to do is the boots on the ground are going to have to be arab and you're going to have to have sunni muslims defeating tsunami muslims.
3:37 am
because even the shiite muslims can't occupy these sunni cities. >> you've been very careful about stopping overreach in terms of u.s. surveillance. we've had some talk this morning about encryption being the big back door the way these terrorists can communicate. what's your sense of -- how much do you worry that there will be an overreach in terms of additional surveillance operations? >> i'm very worried about that because i think when you have a fearful time or an angry time that people are coaxed into giving up their liberty. already many in the intelligence community are saying oh, if we only had the bulk phone collection program back. what they're not telling you and what they're being dishonest about is we still have the phone collection program in the united states. all phone records are still being collected all the time. and we still had the attack. and realize that in france they have bulk collection or surveillance of their citizens a thousandfold greater than what we have with very little privacy protections. they still didn't know anything about this. so what i would argue is you can
3:38 am
keep giving up liberty, keep giving up liberty but in the end i don't think we'll be safer but we may have lost who we are as friends coming over? yeah, so? it stinks in here. you've got to wash this whole room are you kidding? wash it? let's wash it with febreze. for all the things you can't wash, use... ...febreze fabric refresher whoa hey mrs. webber inhales hey, it smells nice in here and try pluggable febreze... continuously eliminate odors for... ...up to 45 days of freshness pluggable febreze and fabric refresher... ...[inhale + exhale mnemonic]... ... , two more ways to breathe happy enough pressure in here for ya? ugh. my sinuses are killing me. yeah...just wait 'til we hit ten thousand feet. i'm gonna take mucinex sinus-max. too late, we're about to take off. these dissolve fast. they're new liquid gels. and you're coming with me... wait, what?! you realize i have gold status? do i still get the miles? new mucinex sinus-max liquid gels.

3:40 am
terror attacks in paris and elsewhere have some in law enforcement rethinking how they respond to active shooter situations. anderson cooper reports for "60 minutes." >> reporter: new york police commissioner bill bratton says the nypd has been preparing for that kind of attack ever since the 2008 terror strike in mumbai, india that killed 173 people and shut down a city of more than 18 million for three days. what did you learn from mumbai? >> the idea of the multiple shooters consciously going in a lot of different directions -- >> multiple shooters, multiple locations. >> bombs in taxicabs, railway station, the hotel. we also learned that these people are going to take hostages only for the purpose of media attention.
3:41 am
they're going to kill them. they're not interested in negotiating to surrender. they're negotiating just to extend the span of time that you in the media are going to cover what they're doing. so that's a very significant change where we normally try to rescue the hostages through negotiation. >> after mumbai you fully anticipated we're going to see that here in the united states. >> that's correct. >> and you still believe that. >> still believe it. and that's why we prepare for it. >> reporter: the new york police department is so concerned about a paris and mumbai-type attack they're retraining all 35,000 police officers in the city. >> the weapon is now loaded. finger off the trigger. >> reporter: they allowed us to watch some of what they're doing. detective raymond mcpartland is the lead trainer with the nypd counterterrorism division and says it's critical police move in quickly to stop an active shooter. >> the big piece i always tell people is time is an issue for both ends. the shooter wants more time inside because that's more victims. we need to cut his time inside if not minimize it completely by getting there quickly. that's a complete shift, a
3:42 am
paradigm change for law enforcement across the board. >> reporter: getting in there quickly means overcoming kay ottic and confusing situations in pursuit of the gunmen. >> now you've got shots. now that changes what we're doing here because we're going to go in that direction. >> reporter: in this drill a team of four officers has to stop an active shooter in a classroom full of students, some of whom are already wounded. [ gunfire ] responding officers are told to focus on finding the gunman before they try to treat any casualties. >> it's also got to be tough because you have hysterical people in a classroom. they're going to be screaming, help this person, help this person. >> sure. and just think of the psychological aspect. you're going to a school shooting and you see children. this is something anybody's going to want to bend over and do whatever they could to stop that. but what we try to instill in them is that we need to stop the killing further. >> reporter: in another training scenario we watch the police respond to a simulated attack by two terrorists with rifles loosely based on what happened in mumbai.
3:43 am
they immediately engage in a gun battle with the first shooter, who's surrounded himself with civilians. >> the issue becomes now you've got a crowded hallway. so this is how they're going to have to deal with it. >> you have clothing on the floor. >> if you notice on the floor there's a bag. at the very least we should start thinking ied, explosive device, is there something we're concerned about? >> reporter: for the first officers on the scene information is limited and often contradictory. with every second that passes more people could be dying. the adrenaline is pumping so much that it changes the way you think, it changes your -- >> sure. it's a survival instinct. there's a man with a gun that's in that room and he's trying to kill other people. under stress the idea of stress science is fascinating when it comes to our world because your vision goes down to about 17% under stress. >> if i said long guns, if i said tactical gear, and i said terrorism, what's the one thing you should also be thinking about? >> ieds. >> ieds. thinking about bombs. >> reporter: afterward detective mcpartland reviews the exercise with the officers and asks them
3:44 am
about the bag that was left in the hallway. >> i noticed the bag. >> if you had noted that that was an i.e.d. in that bag do you still keep going for the shooter? >> unfortunately, yeah. if we had to stop for every bag we found then obviously we'd have a problem because we would never get to that guy. >> reporter: a number of american cities have been retraining their police in a similar way. washington, d.c. police chief kathy lanier says their preparations have taken on new urgency since isis made a threat this week to launch attacks in rome and washington. >> people say what is it that keeps you awake at night? it's not all the things that we train for and we know about. it's the one thing that we haven't yet thought about. what is it that we're missing? >> we've now seen a number of people who are just ideologically motivated, who say they support isis but may have no actual direct connection with a group like isis but just they've watched some videos and they decide to -- >> even scarier. >> that's even scarier. >> less tripwires. less opportunity for us to intercept. i don't think you're going to

stop the shootings. i think that a person who's committed to carrying out an act of violence like this is going to carry that act out. how successful they are and how many people they kill, we can try and intervene on. >> making our approach to the high school now. >> reporter: police departments started to take a serious look to how they respond to active shooters after the attacks at columbine high school in 1999. columbine was a real turning point in terms of reassessing strategies in active shooter situations. >> yes, it was. huge. so we based a lot of our training for active shooter response at the local law enforcement level, we based a lot of training on columbine. >> reporter: in columbine two troubled teenagers freely roamed the school, killing 12 students and a teacher while outside hundreds of law enforcement personnel set up a perimeter and waited for 45 minutes before going in. >> and i very distinctly remember a parent being interviewed saying what were they waiting for? they have guns. my kids don't -- none of our
3:46 am
kids had guns. >> reporter: in the recent paris attack here at the bataclan concert hall, police waited 35 minutes outside for the tactical team to prepare before going in. a u.s. law enforcement source described that as a familiar old american model that's been abandoned. columbine taught police they have to get in fast despite fact a s.w.a.t. team might not be there. >> this is a homicide in progress. you can't wait for backup. you can't wait for the s.w.a.t. team. you are the only thing that can stop that shooting. you have to get in there and do it. >> reporter: that's what washington, d.c. police did in 2013 at the navy yard, when a mentally ill employee began shooting his co-workers. >> we have an active shooter. a male with a shotgun. multiple shots fired. multiple people down. >> our first call to 911 came in one minute and 36 seconds after the first shots fired. we already had multiple people that were shot at that point. >> reporter: chief lanier learned a number of lessons from the police response at the navy yard shootings. some of the rifles police had were too big for the narrow corridors the shooter was moving

through. and the sound of fire alarms made it difficult to determine where shots were being fired from. >> the flashes you see are the fire alarm. the fire alarm's been pulled. the fire alarm's going off. it's loud. and they've got gunshots being fired. and they're trying to narrow down where the gunman is so they can get to the gunman and stop the shooting. >> reporter: it took police an hour and nine minutes to kill the shooter. >> and of the 12 people who were killed the first 10 were killed how quickly? >> six minutes. >> that fast. >> that fast. >> reporter: according to the fbi, 60% of active shooter attacks are over before police ever arrive. so now law enforcement agencies throughout the country are trying to educate the public on how to survive on their own. >> your options are run, hide, or fight. >> that's what you tell people they should do. >> yes. what we tell them is the facts of the matter is that most active shooters kill most of the victims in ten minutes or less. and the best police department in the country is going to be about a five to seven-minute response. i always say if you can get out, getting out's your first option, your best option.
3:48 am
if you're in a position to try and take the gunman out, take the gunman out, it's the best option for saving lives before police can get there. and that's kind of counterintuitive, what cops always tell people, right? we always tell people don't take action, call 911, don't intervene in the robbery. you know, we've never told people take action. it's a different -- this is a different scenario. >> you're telling them that now, though. >> we are. >> reporter: it's important to remember that as tragic and scary as these active shooter attacks are, it's highly unlikely you'll ever be caught up in one. >> you have a very low chance of being the victim of a incident like this. but what we try to do is encourage awareness. the idea is to have an awareness without creating a fear. >> a person's chance of actually having some sort of encounter with an active shooter is 1 in 2 million. a chance of being hit by lightning is 1 in 700,000. do you worry about an overreaction, people getting too scared, fearful of something which in all likelihood they will never encounter?
3:49 am
>> you can be prepared, and you can have a society that is resilient and alert and conscientious and safer without scaring people. >> you don't want people to be afraid. >> that works against you. if you educate people on actions they can take to reduce their risk, then you can save some lives. and i think it's irresponsible for us not to do that. >> you can see anderson cooper's full report on our website, the ov covergirl is the easy way to draw attention perfect point liner smudge with sponge-tip to create a smokin' kitten eye lash blast mascara adds an instant blast of volume add a pow to your brow! wow! from easy, breezy, beautiful covergirl
