you know, if no one wins tonight, it certainly will be astronomical come wednesday night. >> we watch this. we are excited about it. as jeff mentioned you are in a non descript building. what is it like when you are pulling the numbers? >> well, you know, usually not too many people there when the jackpot happens. tonight, we will have a lot of people in the studio so the pressure goes up. i get a little more nervous. generally, it's a few of us. the crew, me, the security team and occasionally we have people come in and view from the viewing room. it's business as usual. >> all right, sam, feels like a black tie affair tonight. we will look for the tux. i will see you in the offices

guzman and others were hiding in the town of los mochis. in the town of sinaloa. five other suspects were killed. six arrested and a mexican marine injured in a bloody shootout. mexico's president enrique pena nieto called it a victory for the rule of law. el chapo's daring escape in july from a maximum security prison was a huge embarrassment for the mexican government. he disappeared through a sophisticated tunnel complete with electricity and motorcycle. >> to get any credibility, nieto had to capture el chapo. >> reporter: will he remain in mexico or be extradited in the u.s.?
it is a good likelihood he will be extradited. >> reporter: after flown by navy helicopter, el chapo is waking up in the same prison he escaped from. authorities say the raid also captured el cholo, el chapo's right hand man also on the run. investigators seized an arsenal, rocket launchers and armored vehicles. erica. >> gabe, thank you. police in the nation's biggest cities this morning on heightened alert following the ambush of the officer in philadelphia. the suspect now in custody telling police he was defending islam when he attacked the officer. nbc's steve paterson in philly for husbandus. >> reporter: good morning, jeff. we are learning more about the man accused of shooting the police officer. he said he did it in the name of

the kids. he might play football. >> reporter: archer has prior convictions on simple assault and firearms charges. law enforcement say the fbi is looking into his phone and computer records and at trips to saudi arabia in 2011 and egypt in 2012. there's nothing to suggest that travel was terror related. according to his mother, archer had been hearing voices. attorney doug dolfman represented him in 2013. >> he was impulsive and paranoid. >> reporter: officer hartnett is a five-year veteran of the philly pd who also served in the coast guard. >> this is astonishing that he was able to escape it. >> reporter: ironically the weapon used to shoot officer hartnett was registered to a philadelphia police officer. stolen in 2013.
he is expected to fully recover likely after more surgery. >> our thoughts with the officer and his family. >> shawn henry is the former assistant of the fbi. he joins us this morning. shawn, always good to have you with us. give us a sense what investigators are looking at based on what steve laid out for us. >> we hear he was isis inspired. he said he did this in support of the islamic state. investigators absolutely want to see if there is any riptide to isis. the fact he traveled to saudi arabia and egypt is a red flag. it is not a smoking gun. it is an area the law enforcement will work with the agencies in both countries to see why he was there and who he met with, et cetera. we saw the evidence taken out of the residence. they will be looking at the electronic devices and looking
see who he contacted. they want to see if there was a conspiracy or if this was just the efforts of one particular individual. >> isis as we know in terms of pop propaganda is standing out. are they particularly going after vulnerable people. the picture painted of the man suggests he may have been vulnerable. >> isis is talking about targeting police officers and military for a long time. they are seeing law enforcement as instruments of the government. from the terrorists' per specspective perspective, it is important to strikeout against the government. they are seen as protectors of the innocent. that is the inspiration between isis and the attacks. law enforcement has been targeted for a long time by a lot of agencies over many years.
this rhetoric. they aware of isis objectives. they will be working very strongly coming together, state, local, federal agencies to make sure they have enough intelligence to protect officers on the streets and protect citizens. >> shawn henry, appreciate it. thank you. two iraqi immigrants arrested here on terror charges this week appeared in court on friday. their arrests along with the philadelphia shooting, a big topic of discussion among the republican candidates for president. nbc's kacie hunt on the trail for us in columbia, south carolina. kacie, good morning. >> reporter: jeff, good morning. these are contributing to a climate of fear with americans listing security and terrorism the top concerns for 2016. that is playing out on the campaign trail. >> they are all saying. >> reporter: two terror related arrests putting national security front and center in the
>> have you seen what is happening in the country? we have a president that doesn't even want to talk about what's really happening. we have to find out what the hell is going on. >> reporter: trump has called for a temporary ban on muslims entering america. drawing protesters at the friday night rally, including one woman wearing a head scarf. they were all escorted out. >> we will knock the [ bleep ] out of isis. >> reporter: campaigning in iowa, ted cruz claiming the two men is blaming for letting them in. >> they came in through the vetting process. >> reporter: adding to concerns, the man who shot a police officer in philadelphia, police said, pledged allegiance to isis. >> we need a president who is clear and steely eyed and understands the danger we face. >> the simple fact is we are living in dangerous times. >> reporter: these republicans
they are tougher on terror than democrat hillary clinton. who cruz says has been lying about the attacks in benghazi, libya, that killed four americans when she was secretary of state. >> in my house, if my daughter, the 5-year-old, says something she knows to be false, she gets a spanking. well, in america, the voters have a way of administering a spanking. >> reporter: no response to that yet from the hillary clinton campaign. now, of course, republicans will shift their focus to the fight against poverty. they are here in south carolina for a forum with paul ryan. missing will be billionaire businessman donald trump who is campaigning in iowa. jeff. >> kasie hunt, thank you. a quick programming note. tuesday here on "today" we will broadcast live from the white house for an unprecedented look behind the scenes. matt will talk to president obama.
