[ pause ] >> reporter: other malls across the country experienced disorder yesterday, too. this cell phone video was taken in long island, new york, where police say shoppers thought they heard gunshots and that's when melee ensued. it turns out all this commotion was caused by a food fight not a shooting but the chaos led to 7 people getting injured in what shoppers describe as a stampede. so police there say that they will check out surveillance video. so far no arrests have been made. in pleasant hill, jackie ward, kpix 5. thank you. today marks a historic show of unity at pearl harbor. japan's prime minister will join president obama to honor victims of the attack. ahead of this first-ever joint visit, prime minister abe laid wreaths at several cemeteries and memorials in hawaii. 2400 americans died in the surprise 1941 bombing. the u.s. responded by dropping

5:07 am
like in sports maybe to play it safer. the problem is, is that we're not there on the ground communicating not only the dry policy aspects of this but that we care about these communities, that we're bleeding for these communities. >> right. >> all right. so president-elect donald trump's response, he said president obama said that he thinks he would have won against me?! he should say that. but i say no way! jobs leaving, isis, obamacare, et cetera. in russia, a black box from a military jet that crashed into the black sea has been found. however, the cockpit voice recorder is still missing. sunday the military jet crashed just two minutes after taking off from sochi. 92 people were on board including dozens of singers in russia's military choir. the russian ministry said there are probably no survivors. right now investigators say pilot error or a technical failure is a likely cause of the crash. also new this morning, we now know that five of the six inmates who escaped from a jail in tennessee have been
