7:04 am
were trapped inside for about five hours until a s.w.a.t. team rescued them. "ctm" national correspondent jericka duncan is at the scene in philadelphia. what do we know about the accused gunman? >> reporter: we know that the accused gunman has a criminal history, extensive criminal history that includes several gun possession charges. now, after the six officers that were wounded, they were released from the hospital and are said to be in good spirits this morning. you take a look at the scene behind me right now. police still gathering evidence. it is quiet and calm but hours ago neighbors here described it as a war zone. the sounds of gun fire terrorized this neighborhood in philadelphia for hours. >> i got officers shot. i got officers shot. we need s.w.a.t. long gun. asap. >> reporter: officers serving a narcotics warrant at a home around 4:30 p.m. yesterday were ambushed by a gunman barricading
7:05 am
himself inside. >> the shooter fired multiple rounds. officers returned fire. many of whom had to escape through windows and doors to get from a barrage of bullets. >> reporter: six officers were shot including one who was grazed by a bullet in the head. >> one of the cops was running past. he had blood all on his head. >> reporter: heavily armed police officers, dozens of squad cars, and s.w.a.t. teams swarmed the area. >> it's all s.w.a.t. >> reporter: police, along with the shooter's lawyer, were trying to communicate with the suspect for hours, urging him to surrender and free hostages. >> s.w.a.t. was able to successfully extract the two police officers that were trapped upstairs as well as three prisoners. >> reporter: as darkness began to fall the siege didn't let up. more than seven hours later the gunman surrendered with the help of his lawyer shaka johnson. >> i've never known him to possess the traits that would have a person shooting at police
7:06 am
officers or having a whole community under siege. >> reporter: the six officers wounded left the hospital as their fellow officers lined up to salute them. philadelphia's mayor used the stand-off to call for gun control. >> whether it's our six officers that were shot or some 15, 17, 20-year-old kid on the streets of philadelphia who gets shot with guns that shouldn't be in people's hands. and it's aggravating and saddening. >> reporter: more than 30 officers discharged their weapons during this shootout. the alleged gunman was taken to temple university hospital where he was treated for tear gas exposure. he is expected to be arraigned facing multiple charges that include six counts of attempted murder. anthony? >> so glad the six officers are all okay. jericka, you lived in philly for three years. how is the city reacting today? >> reporter: you know, north philadelphia is an area that is plagued by gun violence but naturally people in this area are not used to seeing hundreds of officers and crouched down just as nervous as many of the
7:07 am
residents here because they didn't know what to expect. then when you look at the fact that six officers were not severely injured. they went home last night to their families. it is a miracle as the police commissioner said. it is a blessing. >> thank you. turning to the economy, americans saw a big chunk of their stock market savings disappear yesterday over fears of an economic recession. the dow-jones industrial average fell 800 points. that's the biggest drop of the year. more than 3%. but the dow did gain some ground when it opened this morning. don, good morning. what has investors so nervous? >> reporter: good morning. it is something called an inverted yield curve and the bond market hasn't seen this since before the great recession in 2007. it basically indicates that investors are losing confidence in the economy. while that might sound scary, it might also present some opportunities for consumers.
7:08 am
the closing bell on wall street was a sour note for investors wednesday as a key indicator in the bond market signaled the recession could be on its way. cbs news business analyst jill slessingeringer. >> investors are telling us they are quite worried about the future, worried about what stocks will do, what the economy will do. >> reporter: for the first time in more than a decade the yields for the ten-year bond dipped below the yield for the two-year bond. that means investors are more willing to bet on the short-term economy than the outlook for the long term. >> so an inverted yield curve can be a signal that things will slow down in the future and has often been a sign of recession. >> the fed moved in my opinion far too early and fa too severely. >> reporter: president trump has been quick to blame the federal reserve actions on interest rates tweeting crazy inverted yield curve. we should easily be reaping big rewards and gains but the fed is holding us back. analysts point to other factors
7:09 am
as well including the u.s. trade war with china and economic slowdowns in germany, france, and the uk. >> now the question is how quickly will the federal reserve act to stave off further slowdowns or when the president and the administration will sit down with china and remove this cloud of uncertainty. >> reporter: a recession is by no means inevitable and if one does happen it could take 18 to 24 months to develop. there is a silver lining in this. because of this instability, the cost of long-term borrowing is going down which might mean it is a good time to buy a house or, anthony, that new corvette. >> how did you know, don, i was in the market for a new corvette? why thanks. >> reporter: who isn't? >> good point. all right, don. russian airline pilots averted a disaster this morning outside moscow. they landed their jet in a corn field after a bird strike when it took off. incredibly, no one was killed.
7:10 am
passengers were seen near the field after the crash landing. holly williams is tracking this story from london. the video is incredibly scary. >> reporter: that's right. good morning. well, the passengers onboard the air bus 320 must have seen their lives flash before their eyes. the video of the plane heading toward the ground is pretty distressing to watch. you can hear the engines laboring apparently losing power. and then screams from the passengers as they hit the ground. the plane's landing gear was reportedly still up so no wheels on the ground. but miraculously, the pilot managed to land in a corn field just outside moscow airport. all 226 passengers and seven crew members survived. 23 people have been hospitalized. one reportedly with serious injuries. the problems started when the plane collided with a flock of gulls according to the russian air agency. apparently some of the birds were sucked into its engines, causing both of them to fail.
7:11 am
now, the pilot, who presumably will now become something of a sully sullenberger character in russia is already being lauded as a hero as well as handsome by one very grateful passenger. he apparently graduated from aviation school with honors. gayle? >> you never go wrong when you're compared to sully sullenberger. handsome never hurts either. thank you very much, holly. house republican leaders are condemning comments again from one of their own this morning. iowa congressman steve king. speaking before a conservative group in his state yesterday he defended his call for a ban on all abortions. he asked how many humans would be on earth today if it were not for those conceived through rape and incest. >> what if they went back through all the family trees and just pulled those people out that were products of rape and incest? would there be any population of the world left if we did that? >> ed o'keefe is on capitol hill. what are republicans saying
7:12 am
about his comments this time? i have to say it is pretty jaw dropping. >> reporter: yeah, well, gayle, house minority leader kevin mccarthy is criticizing the comments and so are other party leaders. this isn't the first time they've had to do so. king has represented northwest iowa in congress since at least 2003 and long has been considered the most anti-immigrant lawmaker in congress. he made the comments about abortion wednesday while defending an antiabortion bill he has written that would not allow exceptions for rape or incest. earlier this year republican leadership stripped king of committee assignments after the "new york times" quoted him as saying, white nationalist, white supremacist, western civilization, how did that language become offensive? king says he was misquoted. congressman steve scalise the number two house republican said in a statement king's comments on rape and incest are wrong and offensive and underscore why we removed him from his committees. and the iowa republican party called king's comments outrageous and not reflective of the party's views. but king is still a member of congress and said yesterday he has no plans to step down. it would take a vote of
7:13 am
two-thirds of his fellow members of congress to expel him from the house but there are no plans to do that. tony? >> all right. thank you very much. we'll be following it. this morning we are hearing more first-hand accounts from alleged sexual abuse victims of jeffrey epstein. his estate and alleged associates are facing new lawsuits through the child victims act despite his apparent suicide. hola lenghi is outside the convicted sex offender's new york city town house. what are victims saying, mola? >> reporter: good morning, tony. one of the alleged victims now suing jeffrey epstein's estate says four women helped him run his alleged under age sex trafficking operation at least in part from right here his roughly $77 million new york city town house. now, epstein may be gone but the demand for justice is intensifying. >> a good, i'm sorry, would just have been good enough. you know? because i didn't deserve that.
7:14 am
i didn't deserve to, like, just not be a teenage girl anymore. >> reporter: michelle lucata said she did not want jeffrey epstein to die but behind bars for allegedly sexually abusing her when she was around 16 years old. >> i just wanted him to sit there like i had to sit there after it happened. >> reporter: she says a friend recruited her to give the financeer a massage at his florida home when she was in high school and hoping to earn some extra money for christmas presents she agreed. now 31, lucata is calling for epstein's alleged accomplices to be held accountable. she's not alone. on wednesday, epstein accuser jennifer araoz filed a suit against epstein's estate and his purported ex-girlfriend ghislain maxwell and is also suing an alleged recruiter, secretary, and maid on epstein's staff. kimberly lerner is one of araoz's attorneys. >> is there anyone else who should be held accountable? >> there were various
7:15 am
secretaries, house keepers, and the recruiter. we haven't been able to identify any of those people by name as of yet. >> reporter: the lawsuit claims araoz was recruited when she was 14 and she alleges the abuse began about a month after meeting epstein when he showed her the massage room in his new york city town house and told her, it's my favorite room. according to the suit, their visits eventually became routine. a maid would put towels and lotions out. tell araoz to get changed in the bathroom. and leave her $300 in cash for each visit. about a year after the alleged abuse started araoz claims epstein forcibly rained her app she never returned. how much are you seeking? >> we are seeking significant damages. >> reporter: lucata says going through the courts won't make up for the abuse she suffered. >> a civil lawsuit then would not give me back what i lost. >> reporter: lucata told us at least for her there is no way to get peace now that jeffrey epstein is dead.
7:16 am
we should note both lucata and araoz say they never actually met ghislain maxwell and the three other women are listed as jane does in the lawsuit because their identities are still unknown. that is what attorneys tell us they hope to learn through the discovery process of the civil case. ghislain maxwell has never been charged with a crime, gayle, and has always denied any wrongdoing. >> thank you, mola. ms. lucata's words are haunting. thank you very much. we are learning more about the whereabouts of ghislain maxwell. everyone is looking for her. she has kept a low profile since jeffrey epstein's death. meg oliver is in manchester by the sea of massachusetts where neighbors tell us ghislain maxwell has been spotted. meg, what are you hearing? >> reporter: gayle, good morning. we have confirmed with property managers near the mansion that ghislain maxwell recently lived in this secluded mansion going by "g" or g-max. she is now the center of an alleged sexual abuse ring and the microscope is also on this town.
7:17 am
manchester by the sea is a picturesque, small, new england beach town. but now it's in the spotlight for who may be hiding out here. this is the more than $3 million mansion where cbs news has learned british socialite ghislain maxwell has recently been staying amid accusations she oversaw jeffrey epstein's alleged sex trafficking ring. early wednesday a civil lawsuit was filed against epstein's estate and maxwell. in it a woman named jennifer araoz alleges when she was 14 years old epstein committed repeated sexual assault and battery upon her and alleged maxwell participated and assisted epstein in maintaining and protecting his sex trafficking ring ensuring approximately three girls a day were made available to him. >> ghislain maxwell has a great deal to be worried about right now. >> reporter: cbs news legal analyst rikki kleman says now
7:18 am
that jeffrey epstein is dead maxwell may become the focus. >> she has to be concerned there may be a criminal case coming down the pike. >> reporter: maxwell has mostly avoided the public eye in recent years but in the past has rubbed shoulders with the wealthy and elite. "daily mail.com" obtained these photos reportedly showing the tech ceo scott boringerson walking maxwell's dog. he owns the mansion where she may be staying. when we spoke to him he told us she is certainly not in his house but he did admit they are friends. >> there are rumors all over the place about ghislain maxwell. the trufth is we do n-- the trus we do not know her status. perhaps the government does. but the rest of us don't. >> reporter: the property managers we spoke to said borgerson and maxwell were a couple and they saw them running together every morning. maxwell has not been charged with any crime and recently has denied any allegations against her. anthony? >> thank you. hundreds of people arrested in last week's immigration raids

8:18 am
about equal pay we are always willing to listen to that. >> what was it that they wouldn't budge on that made you guys walk out on one day? >> the issue of equality. >> equality. >> i think that it is very simple for us and it is not just about us and it is not just about this moment. we're trying to do this on behalf of women everywhere, to be treated respectfully and paid lawfully, and the issue is just equality. so that when we play a game that we would be compensated the exact same as if a man were to play that game. >> the official said the council took, in your words, an aggressive an ultimately unproductive approach. how do you respond to that? >> that's not true. that's definitely not true. we set the posture as the players in our talks, and that is not what we came ready and prepared and willing to have the conversation. >> they also said that your approach followed months of

presenting misleading information. >> yes, i think that there's some attempt for them to make this, you know, he said, she said. at the end of the day it is as simple as i laid it out. >> megan at the world cup victory parade you endorsed president cordero, saying that you felt he was on the right side of things. do you still feel that way? >> in this moment i don't, no. i think that there's a long way to go for us to feel that way about him, about the board of directors, about the federation as a whole. you know, they're the only team that we -- that they have and we're -- you know, they're the only employer we have. we're tethered together so we always will be open and willing to listen to that, but in this moment, no, they didn't do nearly enough to get where we need to go. >> where do we go from here, guys? do you say, you don't pay us, we don't play? what do you do? where do you go? >> are you willing to boycott the olympics as the team in '95 began to do?
8:20 am
>> we are very confident if this needs to go to litigation that we have a great case, and i think that we will go confidently into that because it is based on a very simple principle that we think is fair and right, and it is the law. >> it is a court of law question, but there's also the court of public opinion. one of the comments made by a men's coach for a men's team in atlanta was that it is ridiculous, your effort -- his word -- because the international play for men is just multiples more popular than the women's game and therefore equal pay shouldn't be considered. what is the reaction to that? >> i think we would like to see u.s. soccer take a stance of leadership in this, on this issue. i think we have an amazing opportunity to change something that is systematically affected women everywhere, and it could be such a positive thing for us to come together and change outdated and, honestly, wrong
8:21 am
opinions like that, and do it in an effort of collaboration and progress. >> i'm curious about your overwhelming feeling. is it anger, frustration? do you think, what more do we need to prove? >> i do often wonder what more we need to do. i mean i think it is -- i wouldn't say anger, but, yes, it is frustrating. it is very frustrating for us on the team, you know, for women everywhere i'm sure to be feeling like they aren't getting paid what they should be. >> we thank you both for being here. we appreciate it. >> cheering you on always. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> always. ahead in our "more perfect union" series, meet two women whose childhood friendship blossomed into a mission. how they're using flowers to bring their community together. you're watching "cbs this morning". application site. the most common side effect is application site pain. ask your doctor about eucrisa.
