the showdown. >> reporter: hillary clinton in orlando in the one of the last time voters see her before monday's big debate. after this, she's hunkering down to cram. >> donald trump is a self proclaimed great debater who won every one of the republican debates, so i take nothing for granted. >> reporter: two very different candidates with two very different debate prep staejs. clinton immersing herself in briefing books daily, and trump in past debates and holding mock debates. as for donald trump, this is what he told david recently. >> any mock debates? >> haven't thought about it much, could happen. >> reporter: now trump's team says no mock debates for him, instead, an ipad with footage of clinton, meets with a team of advisers including family members and former fox news boss roger ailes, but sources say those sessions have di involved into story telling rather than serious preparation. will trump get nervous when he

breaking news this morning on "world news now" -- chaotic night again in charlotte. >> protesters are clashing with police on the city streets. one protester is on life support after being shot police say by another civilian and this all comes as protesters question the police department's version of what happened during a deadly offer-involved shooting. officers are also injured. we are live at the scene. in tulsa, residents searching for answers as we learn more about the deadly shooting in that city. what may have led to that critical moment when an officer fatally shot terrence crutcher, and why his family is critical of the current investigation. later, those headlines that are affecting the race for the white house. hear what both donald trump and hillary clinton have to say about the recent violence and why one of the answers could be a nationwide stop and frisk policy. it's thursday, september 22nd. >> announcer: from abc news,
good morning, everyone on a very busy thursday morning. i'm kendis gibson. >> i'm diane macedo. we begin with the state of emergency in north carolina as the second night of violence unfolds in charlotte, following a fatal police shooting. >> it was quite a violent scene. yet again, police in riot gear clashing with protesters this time near an upscale hotel in a downtown area in a very popular part of charlotte called uptown. one person is on life support after being shot in the head we're told by someone else. at least four officers were injured. the governor just hours ago ordering that the national guard and state troopers take to the streets of charlotte. abc's jim ryan is in charlotte and joins us now with what the situation is in these early morning hours. jim? >> reporter: good morning. no sign of the national guard here on the streets yet in the uptown section of downtown charlotte. you'll find gatherings of police officers, city police officers, in riot gear. in some cases, standing around, talking with a few of the
evening were taunting them, gathering in large groups, and now smaller groups for conversations, if you will, about what's happening in the city over the last 24 hours. and as you said, the governor has declared a state of emergency that will move the national guard here into the area. but as of right now, things have calmed down substantially. kendis? >> jim, as we take a look at what some of the scenes were from earlier in the day, you saw plenty of these clashes, i saw that they utilized a little bit of tear gas and there seems to be quite a bit of looting that took place at many of these venues and stores. describe to me some of the violence you saw there. >> reporter: yeah. throughout downtown you'll find signs of what happened earlier today. painted windows here at a hotel parking garage, smashed windows in some other parts of city and evidence of the tear gas that was lobbed or the flash bangs that were used as police tried to disperse these crowds.
involving clashes between police officers and protesters has died down quite a bit here in the last few hours, but very tense times for a couple hours just before midnight. >> jim, we saw violence yesterday and now we're seeing it yet again today. what plans are in effect to try to prevent this from happening tomorrow? >> reporter: well, i think the governor's plan is attempting to do that, bringing in the national guard, more resources from departments around the area, the county and state of north carolina, to try to simply put boots on the ground to be ready if large-scale demonstrations happened. i think they are trying to take a page from what happened in ferguson, baltimore, other places where these things are going on, trying to learn the lessons, what to do, and essentially whatnot to do, diane. >> jim, obviously, one of the big points of contention here is whether or not there was a gun in this circumstance. is there anymore from law enforcement in terms of what information they plan to release
>> reporter: no, none at all. i think that the police have essentially done the information release that they're going to do. certainly more will be coming out as investigations continue, and as people have lawyers speaking for them. i think that's what we'll hear from the family members is more about that side of the story in the next few days. >> jim, really quickly here, you were there in ferguson, i was there as well for the anniversary, saw the violence that erupted in ferguson. you've been to many others. how would you say this night of unrest, this second night of unrest compared to those other situations you've been to? >> reporter: well, i think the response has been sort of measured by the police here. again, i think they tried to learn from the previous incidents of police violence and the response from communities and tried to tone it down somewhat. tried to hold back the response somewhat and be measured in order to keep things from escalating. i think that's sort of the response you're seeing here. >> all right. abc's jim ryan on the scene for us after another violent night of unrest in charlotte. stay safe.
and officials so far have not released police body camera video of the shooting that touched off the violence. >> steve gomez, abc news contributor and former fbi special agent in charge joining us now with more on the law enforcement's response and, steve, one of the things we've been discussing, especially since last night, you know, police say there was a gun, why not immediately show photos or video and try to tamper down the situation immediately? >> caller: well, that usually indicates that the investigation is a little more complicated than we all think. i would expect that they would try to get that information out to the public as soon as possible because, clearly, that's one of the motivations for these protests and violence and destruction to property. i have to believe that the reason they are not putting it out there is because there's a little more to it and getting it out there without giving full explanation how the investigation's proceeding is probably going to be problematic for them. >> steve, we also heard some
not having implemented a curfew for tonight given we saw violence the night before as well. any thoughts on what should have been done differently here and what should be done for tomorrow? >> caller: well, i think that as jim said, they were probably measured -- they probably realized that if they come out too strong, do a curfew and do some other measures that it could exacerbate the whole situation. now, it seems like they did a fairly good job containing, even though there was some violence, property damage, and so on, but i would have to believe that now that they're bringing in the national guard, bringing in other agencies, that they're going to consider, i would hope, a curfew and the full scale of techniques they can use to kind of contain these situations and not result in a riot like we saw in baltimore and ferguson. >> steve, you've seen situations like this firsthand. you were fairly new agent with the fbi when the rodney king riots erupted out there in the
cops -- sorry, the cops in charlotte are handling this and authorities there handling this, and you think what? >> caller: well, in los angeles, it was a very weak response. it was almost like the chief back at that time acquiesced to whatever the people in the streets were going to do, just go ahead and burn up the city. and there was a lot of debate about that. i think in charlotte, they have the advantage of learning from what happened in ferguson and baltimore and i think they are being a lot more proactive in balancing not making the communities feel like they are coming in heavy handed, but at the same time, they have to protect the community, and i think they are now moving -- i think today what we saw they were moving the group to a different area, they were trying to take better control of the situation. hopefully tomorrow we'll see a lot better response. >> steve, talk about what goes into that? how do you ride that line between trying to protect the
to answer questions, but also not wanting to release too much information and also not wanting to seem like you're trying to subdue the protests that are going on? what goes into that decision, and how do you ride that line? >> caller: well, the chief of police and the command staff for the different regions there where everything's going on, they are not only in communication with the sergeants and lieutenants and people supervising the troops on the ground, but they are also in communication with the city officials, with the other agencies that are stake holders in this whole situation and probably the sta they are coordinating the strategy on how they are going to deal with this situation, and that's going to flow all the way down to the sergeants and the lieutenants, whether they're going to be measured or whether they're going to aggressively come in there and -- i found it interesting that they used flash bangs. flash bangs are concussion type grenades. they are not going to hurt anybody unless the flash bang hits you or is right in front of
you'll sustain damage. they clearly are pulling out all of the tools in the tool chest in order to try to get the crowd to comply and do what they need them to do. >> quickly, steve, do you think any of this impacts how quickly the police release more information? >> caller: absolutely. they are under an incredible amount of pressure to -- if not photos, but preliminary assessment of the shooting to the public. they realize that's the key point. now depending on what the investigation comes up with and their result, the public may not like it. it may make the protests and what we're seeing here even worse. that's why we may not have released anything yet. they want to make sure they crossed all the ts, nipped everything together, make sure it's nice and neat to where it's well-explained to the public when it comes out. >> all right. steve gomez for us. thanks, steve. we'll talk to you in the next half hour as we, of course, monitor the breaking situation. coming up, we'll get to the rest of this morning's
other deadly police shooting in tulsa. we'll hear from the deceased's family explaining one of the reasons they're fed up. what we're learning about the alleged new york bomber and the search for the two mystery men police are hoping to get new information from. you're watching "world news now." information from. you're watching "world news now." you may think you can put off checking out your medicare options until you're sixty-five, rolling. keep in mind, medicare only covers about eighty percent of part b medical costs. the rest is up to you. that's where aarp medicare supplement insurance plans insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company come in. like all standardized medicare supplement insurance plans,

>> crutcher recently served four years in prison, but his sister says he was starting to turn his life around. both presidential candidates are weighing in on the fatal shootings. hillary clinton said we have to do better and noted two more names are now added to a long list of african-americans killed by police officers. donald trump called both incidents tragic, addressing an audience of black pastors near cleveland. trump said he was troubled by the shooting in tulsa and questioned the officer's action >> did she get scared? was she choking? what happened? >> it's unbearable and it needs to become intolerable. >> clinton saying there's a lot we don't know yet about what happened and both expressed appreciation for police officers. just hours after talking about the shootings, trump called for the expanded use of stop and frisk, controversial police tactic that allows officers to stop and search anyone they deem suspicious.
incredibly well in new york city when he was asked about stopping violence in the black community during a town hall. in 2013, a federal judge ruled that stop and frisk can be discriminatory against minorities. one one from note from new york city, the fbi is looking for two men seen on surveillance video taking one of the manhattan bombs out of a piece of luggage and leaving with the luggage. they say they won't be arrested. they just want to talk with them. video recovered from phone of the sister of the bombing suspect show him testing bomb making material. there's good news for tens of millions of drivers across the south and east. the nation's largest gas pipeline is again in operation following the repair of a major leak in alabama. colonial pipeline said it will take a couple days. for the fuel supply to return to normal which means prices at the pump should be dropping. exxon mobil will pay $12 million for environmental damages caused by a pipeline break in montana. the spill sent 63,000 gallons of

but sleep well, it's not until late next year. >> nothing to see. nothing to worry about. >> exactly. well, coming up in our next half hour, the brush with death for one pilot on the runway. his plane broke down just before takeoff as other planes were hurdling toward him. amazing scene there. you're watching "world news now." >> announcer: "world news now"
? another ceo has faced a grilling on capitol hill. this time it's the ceo of the company that manufactures epipens. >> despite several hours, the hostile questioning over the nearly 700% price increase in the injectors as well as her own soaring salary, heather bresch refused to apologize. here is abc's mary bruce. >> reporter: for more than two and a half hours, frustrated lawmakers grilled and scolded the embattled ceo of mylan pharmaceuticals heather bresch. >> it is driving exorbitant profits. >> it is disgusting. the greed is astounding. >> reporter: accusing her company of putting profits before patients, hiking the price of life saving epipen packs to $600, but bresch
out they now offer a $300 generic. >> our concern was that absolutely that everyone who needs an epipen has one. >> reporter: hit a billion dollars this year, and her salary soaring, too, up to $18.9 million. >> you got an hefty increase. >> i am blessed and fortunate. >> what have you done to earn that kind of increase? >> reporter: questions about the role her mother played in promoting when she was the head of a national education group. >> i certainly thought it was a very cheap shot to bring my mother into this. >> reporter: for families hoping for an apology -- >> will you apologize? >> reporter: still no answer. now the company is offering rebates and a cheaper generic, but bresch says the overall price of this device is fair. she says the real problem here is the health care system, not her company. mary bruce, abc news, capitol hill. coming up, the scientific
? time now for "the mix," and we start with a very happy story. >> yes. >> so you might remember last week we introduced you to sanchez, a mexican immigrant who sells mexican popsicles in chicago. he's done so for 23 years. well, two of his loyal customers started a go fund me account for him. they raised more than $384,000 for him. the story behind this is that his daughter suddenly died, and so at 89 years old, he and his wife took in their grandson which meant he had to continue working selling popsicles. so with the new money, he may buy a house for his wife and grandchildren and treat himself to a hearing aid. and at age 89, he can finally retire.
these years? that's really wonderful. that's great they are able to do that for him. so apparently the reason you are on the couch right now or laying in bed and refusing to go to the 24-hour fitness gym -- >> is because you love us. >> and because you're lazy, but it's within our nature. as humans. apparently, harvard researchers looked into all of this, and it's sort of in our dna as humans, they said, humans are hard wired by evolution towards laziness because way back when, you know, in the original days -- >> yonder days. >> yonder days. apparently while we would eat a lot of food in our nature, we weren't going to go out for a run or run away from the dinosaurs or whatever else was chasing us. >> you did enough running in your everyday lives, hunting, running from predators. >> exactly. so to exert yourself was not something in our nature. voila. the reason we're all lazy is in

>> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now." >> good morning, everybody, i'm kendis gibson. >> i'm diane macedo. we begin with breaking news from charlotte, north carolina. at least four officers have been injured during violence that erupted for a second night following a police shooting. >> what began as a prayer vigil early in the evening turned violent. police firing tear gas at protesters who threw bottles at police. hotel employees, some journalists have b one protester was shot, but not by police. the governor declaring a state of emergency overnight, ordering the national guard and state troopers to take to the street. that governor and local officials trying to prevent a repeat of tuesday night when protesters blocked interstate 85 looting tractor trailers and setting fires. >> the protest follow the fatal shooting of an armed black man by a black police officer.
as police say, but he was holding a book, not a gun. police version, of course, is quite different. >> the officers gave loud, clear, verbal commands to drop the weapon. as the officers continue to yell at him to drop it, he stepped out posing a threat to the officers. >> now, there is police video of the shooting, but officials are refusing to release it until after the investigation is complete. the officer who fired the fatal shot is identified as bradley vincent and he was in plain clothes at the time of the shooting and was not wea >> so there you have it, after two nights of violence, what do local and state leaders do now? >> steve gomez is an abc news contributor and former fbi and he joins us by the phone now to talk about the law enforcement response. steve, this morning the big question is why not release that video? what do you think? >> caller: i think it's a lot more complicated as far as the investigation and they don't want to put something out there like the video that could be interpreted in many different
they want to try to get the investigation as tight as possible so when they release it, they'll be able to release almost everything, which will explain what really happened, and that's probably causing the delay. >> and we should mention, you're looking at live pictures here in the early morning hours. our chopper from wsoc, our affiliate in charlotte, has been flying all over the place throughout the night and in the early morning hours and trying to see many of the police activities there. this particular one near the downtown basketball arena. th w executive of the hornets mentions that their store was looted. steve, a lot of stores and businesses looted. this was just all, like, chaos on the streets of charlotte. >> caller: yeah. i mean, this is something that's just unfortunate. i mean, there's only so much law enforcement can do. you get people that want to act out like this, they will be able to do it. it's even harder when you have a lot of people doing it because now it's a matter of, you know,
are the officers vulnerable? they almost have to create that kind of line that you see when there's that type of activity, and they have to start containing the situation as they, then, try to move the crowds and start to peel people off and try to arrest them if they can determine who committed such crimes. >> steve, whether you believe the family's version of the events or the police officer's version of events, what it's indicative of is a fracture in the trust between the community and police department. how do you fix that when things get to that point? >> caller: well, biggest problem, that fracture, that lack of trust between community and law enforcement, that's going on nationwide. that's one of the biggest problems that i've seen the last year is when you do have police shootings, and you're going to have use of force and you're going to have use of deadly force, but you have to have good communication between police and community because of those situations. but when you have this type of breakdown and you have it all
