7:00 am
after 10:30 thursday morning. >> we do have one female that has been shot at this time. >> reporter: according to witnesses, police arrived on scene within minutes, engaging mercer in a shootout. >> exchanging shots with him. he's in a classroom. >> reporter: nearly ten minutes after receiving calls of shots fired. >> code 4. the suspect is down. >> today was the saddest day in the history of the college. >> reporter: oregon's governor kate brown said her priority was the victims. >> i am joined by my fellow oregonians and americans in profound dismay and heartbreak at this tragedy at umpqua community college. >> reporter: president expressing his pain and frustration with yet another mass shooting in america. >> the reporting is routine. my response here at this podium ends up being routine. the conversation and the aftermath of it. we've become numb to this. >> reporter: gunshot victims
7:01 am
>> four patients went to the operating room for various procedures, and, unfortunately, one patient was deceased in the emergency room. >> reporter: shooter's father spoke briefly to reporters late last night. >> this is a shock to everybody at what happened today. obviously it's been a devastating day, devastating for me and my family. >> any surprise at all? >> shocked, shocked is all i can say. >> reporter: a lot of shock, a lot of heartbreak here. community speakers at the vigil last night credited law enforcement for the crick response, including two u.s. marshalls who just happened to be here in rosenberg in an unrelated case. when they first heard reports of the shooting on the scanner, they raced to the campus and were among the first responders, perhaps preventing more loss of life. matt and savannah? >> all right, natalie. we'll check in with you a lot throughout the morning. thanks very much. >> and, of course, big question this morning, the one we ask so often in cases like this why? for more on the shooter and his motivations we want to turn to
7:02 am
nbc's joe fryer. joe, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. law enforcement agencies are still trying to figure out the motive in this case, telling nbc news that right now it's unclear if any of the factors were religion, race, mental illness or any combination of those things. it's just too early to tell. here's what we do know. the shooter, chris harper mercer, was 26 years old. he lived in oregon with his mother not too far from the campus, and before that he lived in california. neighbors describe him as someone who was shy and seemingly didn't want to be bothered by others. now at scene of the shooting, four firearms were recovered, three handguns and one long gun, similar to an ar-15 style rifle. several mag seines and a ballistic vest were also found. he was not a current student at the community college, and his connection with the school is still unclear. a myspace page under the same name with photos verified by nbc news to show the shooter featured mercer holding what appeared to be a rifle and
7:03 am
the irish republican army with masked gunman and logos. earlier reports later discrete itted warned that the shooter warned people on a social media site and the post from an anonymous reared said some of you guys are all right. don't go to school tomorrow if you are in the northwest. all of this, of course, is being looked at by investigators who are trying to figure out a motive. we'll have a news conference later this morning and hope to learn more at that time. savannah? >> stay on it, joe fryer, thank you. >> john hanlon is the douglas county sheriff. sheriff, good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. >> i understand investigators have been at the apartment where this shooter lived in winchester. can you tell me, is there anything that they or you have learned overnight about him that we didn't know last night? >> i can tell you that overnight
7:04 am
number of firearms and later today we will describe more as far as the numbers and types of weapons. regarding the shooter himself, all i know is that his identity has been made, but it's way too early in the investigation to really tell you any more about the shooter himself. >> can i ask you to confirm this horrific part of the story that we're hearing from some family members of students who are at the college, that this shooter actually lined people up and asked them if they were christian, and if they answered yes they were shot in the head and if they answers no they were shot some place else, often in the legs. based on who you have spoken to is that an accurate side of this story? >> i can't comment on that. again, it's very early in the investigation. we will be trying to determine exactly what happened in that classroom, but it is too early to -- to tell at this point the specifics about the shooting itself.
7:05 am
>> you said in a news conference overnight that you were not going to mention this shooter by name. i think you said you didn't want to give him credit for this horrific act of cowardice. can you tell me though, was he someone who had come to the attention of law enforcement at all in the past? had he done anything or said anything that raised red flags? >> again, it's early in the investigation. i'm not -- i'm not aware of any specific red flags. he is a local resident, and i know personally i haven't heard of any -- any warning signs coming from this person. >> sheriff, i have to ask you about some things that are circulating online that involve you. apparently you wrote a letter in 2013 after the sandy hook elementary school shootings to joe biden, the vice president, and you denounced any attempt at gun control. you wrote according to what i've seen online gun control is not the answer to prevent heinous
7:06 am
crimes like school shootings, and you added that an attempt to change the second amountment would be irresponsible and an indisputable insult to the american people. first of all, are those statements accurate, and have you changed your mind at all based on what's happened in your community? >> well, first of all, i know there's a lot of talk about guns and gun control. that is a conversation that i'm sure we will all be having in the coming weeks following this horrific incident, but right now i'm focused on -- on completing this investigation, and more importantly focused on the victims and the family of the victims and ensuring that they get through this very difficult time. >> sheriff john hanlin, i know your community is going through a lot and appreciate you taking the time to talk to us this morning. >> thank you. >> when those shots began to rang out it was terrifying for the young people who were forced to scramble for safety. cassandra welding and sarah
7:07 am
copper, both students in the school and in the classroom next door to the shootings. ladies, good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> i first have to ask how you both are doing and how you are processing what happened, having been so close to something so horrific. >> it's terrifying. it's absolutely terrifying. i never thought something like this would have happened at such a small community like this. i'm mortified. i don't know what to think. >> yeah. i'm in horrific shock right now and i just don't know what to think at this point anymore. i'm sflust out just in utter shock that this happened. >> cass drag, you were in a classroom next door, a different one than zayrea. can you describe what you saw and one of your classmates went out to see what was going on. can you tell me what happened there? >> i heard a really loud noise, and i thought it was a book dropping or a table that fell or something, and then i realized -- or a balloon, that you know, has a really loud pop
7:08 am
and i realized something wasn't right so a fellow class made the went out to the door to see, and she got shot twice by the shooter, and -- so she collapsed and we were all in panic mode then, and we closed the door, locked it and turned off the light and huddled in the corner of the room and we continued -- our classmates and i continued to hear shots after shots. >> and cassandra, how is your classmate this morning? do you know how she is doing? >> i honestly don't know at this point if she's in critical condition or if she's even okay at this point. >> sarah, what about you? as i said you were in a different classroom and you also heard the shots ring out. what happened? >> so i -- about half an hour, 40 minutes into class, and i hear this loud noise, and like cassandra i thought it was maybe a book or a table or something, but it was kind of suspiciously loud, and so i -- my parents always from a young age told me to be alert and be aware of your surroundings so at that point i
7:09 am
was looking around and looked out the window, and i -- i saw two girls running from the building, and that's when i knew, it registered to me that it was a gunshot so i told the teacher we've got to get out of here, get out of here now and she was leaning over to the door that connects the two classrooms by the wall, and she asked is everyone okay. are you all right and almost reached to open the door which thank god she didn't because that would have been the end right there. we all would have probably had the shooter in the classroom also, and so after -- after i told her that it's a gunshot, we've got to get out second and third shots happened and by that point she had opened the door and i was halfway across campus by then. i went over to the student center and stayed in the financial aid area for the lockdown. >> well, what an absolutely terrifying situation for both of you. we're glad you're both okay and appreciate you sharing your stories this morning. thank you. >> thank you.
7:10 am
>> let's bring in don barelli, a fbi. >> good morning. >> so many times when an event like this takes place law enforcement officials arrive. they first have to figure out what crime was committed and who committed it. in cases like this mass murders, where the mass murderer ends up dead we know what crime was committed and who did it. enforcement now. >> i think we want to know why and how so we want to figure out what the motive was. was it mental illness, whatever the case may be, and how did he get the weapons, and more importantly were there any clues that could have led to the prevention of this? did he tip his hand somewhere, did he tell somebody, his family, somebody on the internet. did somebody have a piece of information that could have been brought to the attention of law enforcement early to prevent that? i mean, you can't bring back the victims, but certainly you need to try to figure out if there are lessons to be learned and implement those lessons so that we can do better next time.
7:11 am
>> and that's the question this morning. i think everybody, from the president on down, is saying how does this continually happen and people in your line of work who do these investigations and put together these profiles. i mean, are there common threads and things we should all be looking out for. >> well, it's difficult in this situation. you have somebody that on the surface looks to be mentally ill and we have lots of people walking the streets that are mentally ill. we also have millions of guns on the street that are unaccounted for, and then you overlay what happens in the internet, whether you believe in white hate or benlate hate or islamic extremism or whatever group you belong to it adds fuel to the fire and adds justifications to these violent actions. it's a very difficult situation. >> we know at least four weapons actually were recovered, three handguns and a long gun. how long will it take law enforcement officials to trace those guns so we know how and where he got them? >> i think they probably have those answers if not already.
7:12 am
try to figure out how he got the weapons and then, again, lessons learned to see if it could have been prevented. >> don borelli, thank you very much. >> meantime, the weather still a story here on the east coast. forecasters watching hurricane joaquin, a very dangerous category 4 storm t.lashed the bahamas overnight and in the meantime there's another storm system that's already led to some pretty severe flooding in the southeast. it's about to get a lot worse. two reports this morning and, al, we'll start with you. good morning. >> this is really interesting as we watch this development. joaquin is still a category 4 storm, and it currently has winds of 130 miles per hour. it's 50 miles south southwest of san salvador. it's really not moving that much, so we're going to continue to watch this track, and as it does, it tracks along the coast. the good news the tracks with each run has been a little further to the east. in fact, it has now started to match the european model, but it is off the coast, and we're still going to feel its effects, and look at this. we've got this closed off low
7:13 am
down south and that's bringing a lot of rain over the next several hours and days into south carolina. take a look at the video we've already seen. seen flooding and haven't seen the beginnings of the leftiest rain coming in. this is going to push to that area and that low is going to sit there thanks to an area of low pressure that's blocking that and back to the maps to give you an idea what have we can expect over the next several days. the heavy rain continues for the next 72 hours. rainfall amounts, we're talking in some areas like this right here just north of augusta, 20 inches of rain in the next three days. periods of torrential rain right through monday, and this large area could go from south carolina to northeastern georgia, and the flood watches are in effect for 31 million people, leavening flash flooding through sunday and record-breaking rainfall, and,
7:14 am
in fact, every county in north carolina is under a flood watch right now. that's where we find dylan dreyer currently in kill devil hills, north carolina, and coastal flooding and big effects along the coast will be a big problem. dylan? >> she sure are, al. one point it was looking like a category 2 hurricane was going to hit right here along the outer banks of north carolina, but even with joaquin staying far away from the east coast, there's still a huge threat of coastal flooding. look at the ocean behind me and just how rough it is. we have had a persistent, strong, easterly wind that's just been drawing all of this water onshore, so around the time of high tide we have the threat of significant coastal flooth flooding, not just from here but from new england all the way down to florida as winds get stronger over the next couple of days. high wind warnings for parts of new jersey and delaware through tomorrow afternoon with gusts up near 60 miles per hour. now this, area has been very hard hit by rain. it is rain nearly every day in the past week, and as you
7:15 am
pointed out with the additional 20 inches of rain possible for some in this area, flash flooding and flooding, along with the coastal flooding and beach erosion will all become an issue. it doesn't take a hurricane to make a direct hit to feel the effects. we're feeling the outer edge of it, and it's going to be pretty significant this weekend. al? >> absolutely. dylan dreyer in kill devil hills, north carol, thank you very
7:16 am
two systems. one joaquin, going to miss us. this one along the coast is not. the leading edge over the tristate. light and spotty in nature. heavier rain off to the south that. will fill in this afternoon especially toward the evening. the day planner, it's windy and chilly. no better than the mid-50s. rain gets steadier and heavier toward the evening hours. coastal flooding possible into tomorrow. mid-50s tomorrow. light rain, especially early. nothing more than a leftover shower sunday. drier and milder middle of next week. >> and that's your latest weather. matt? >> all right, al. tell you now about a tragedy overseas. 13 people including six american service members were killed overnight when a u.s. c-130 transport plane like this one crashed in afghanistan. it happened while the plane was taking off from an airfield in jalalabad. the six americans were members of that aircraft's crew, a cause for the crash has not been determined. military officials said though there were no reports of hostile activity in the area at the time of the crash.
7:17 am
>> tough morning. coming up. we'll have much more on this american tragedy. the mass shooting at that community college in oregon. an angry president obama saying enough is enough.
7:18 am
coming up, think football players are pretty rough and tough. wait until you hear what the new york jets are bringing for them for their game in london this weekend. >> and in honor of breast cancer awareness month, we're throwing

the brooklyn bridge and the east river. 7:26 on this friday, october 2nd. good morning. i'm michael gargiulo. communities along the jersey shore taking steps to protect themselves from the stormy weather headed our way. tracie strahan has the latest from belmar. tracie? >> reporter: michael, this current weather system is bad enough. officials didn't want to waste any time preparing from effects from joaquin. the hurricane was a concern and even though it's not going to be a direct hit to this town, they already erected sand dunes in this area a couple of days ahead of time. the mayor says they pumped out water in two lakes to mitigate against homes flooding in this area. governor christie will be here this afternoon and not only survey the dunes but see if other shore towns will have to evacuate as a precaution. michael, back to you. >> tracie, thanks very much. right now, we want to take a look at the morning commute. here's lauren with that. >> michael, we have delays and

7:26 am
oregon, with the latest on this shooting. natally, good morning to you. >> repter: good morning to you guys as well. a lot of still unanswered questions here this morning. this is umpqua community college, the road that lea in. it'su still closed. the campus remains closed into the weekend, and it will reopen again on monday. students were settling into class on thursday morning when kessier, the 261-year-old, enter the the class at snider hall and opened fire beginning his vicious attack. what we don't know about him, we don't know his motive. what we do know, he's originally from california, living here with his mother. law enforcement telling nbc news it's not clear if or whether factors such as religion, race, meezal illness or some combination or other factor played a role in the incident. we also don't know his connection to the school here, if any. he was armed with four firearms, three handguns, including one lo sng gun an several rounds of ammunition, including mag seines
7:27 am
found on scene. family members of the survivors say that mercer asked their religion, and if they answered that they were christian, he shot them in the head. this is a small town of about 20,000 here, the town of roseburg. it's been a very heartbreaking ght, as you can imagine. other a thousand gathered last night at a nearby park to pay tribute and to honor those victims and refusing to say the shooter's name saying that they will not -- they do not want him to be remembered io this. instead, they want to rememner the victims and those who are surviving this, and they say this will in fact bring them closer together rather ttyhan teasir them apart. tt and savannah? >> all right, natalie. thanks. some numbers really put this incto perspective. there have been 41 school shootings this career alone, according to every town, a group whose mission it is to reduce gun violence that. group also reports that this is
7:28 am
the massacre at sandy hook elementary school back in december 2012. >> this morning's "daily news," "new yha daily news" puts the shooting deaths since that tragedy at more than 87,000. as we reported on thursday, an otional president obama spoke out the shootings. he challenged reporters to go bathei and tally up the number of americans who died in terrorist attacks in the last decade versus the number of americans who have been killed by gun violence. a reporter did just that tweeting his findings to the president revealing that from 2001 to 2011 more than 10,000 americans were killed each year by gun violence compared with th fe few hundred killed each year by terrorist attacks with the notable exception of 9/11. >> and a stunning fact this morning in "the washington post," president obama's second term, not a single week has gone by without a mass shooting. let's get more now on the politics of all of this.
7:29 am
nbc's national correspondent peter alexander is at the white house. peter, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, >> good morning to you. president obama was visibly frustrated, really as angry as we have seen him. the white house even releasing this photo showing the president exasperated as he was glancing at the news coverage of yesterday's shooting. as you noted, this was the 4 1st school shooting this year leaving the president exasperated by the fact that these tragedies have become so frequent they no longer shock us. outrage from the highest office on down. >> as i said just a few months ago and i've said a few months before that and i said each time we see one of these mass shootings, our thoughts and prayers are not enough. >> reporter: president obama eaking out thursday in the aftermath of another mass shooting in america, a speech he's had to givee,ore than ten times before, but this time delivered with unprecedented
7:30 am
>> somehow this has become routine. the reporting is routine, my response here at this podium ends up being routine, the conversation and the aftermath of it. we've become numb to this. we are not the only country on earth that has people with mental illnesses or want to do harm to other people. we are the only advanced country on earth that sees these kinds of mass shootings every few months. >> the anger and, haufgs also spreading to those whose coverage of such massacres has become commonplace. >> can i not imagine what it's like to be that man and say i am the president of the united states, and i cannot get my legislators to put their heads together and pass legislation that will stop americans from
7:31 am
>> again, if i'm not mistaken this is the largest massacre in oregon state history and it's just awful. >> reporter: for others thursday's killings were a call to action. comedian jimmy kimmel tweeting numb, dumb, right, left, whatever we are, no one wants this to happen again. let's work together to make it stop. a weary nation and its leader fearing that inaction now means only a promise of further future violence. >> i hope and pray that i don't have to come out again during my tenure as president to offer my condolences to families in these rcumstances, but based on my experience as president i can'tt guarantee that. and that's terrible to say. >> the president challenged those who would accuse him of politicizing this tragedy, explicitly saying this is something we should politicize and shortly ahereafter mik
7:32 am
huckabee, running for president, blasted president obama calling his comments shameless and ignorantly inflammatory, adding that the president in his words can exploited any tragedy that he wants, but it's clear that gun-free zones, huckabee said, are sitting duck zones. matt and savannah. >> peter alexander at the white house, thank you. chuck todd is moderator of "meet the press" as well as nbc's political director. chuck, good morning to you. the president in his remarks yesterday at the white house said this has become routine. we are all numb t this. no take me insid washington. seems to me there is a short-term reaction to these reality. >> no, there is, and it is a routine re action so what you have is you have folks on the >>l. they say similar things to what the president did. on the right those who are -- don't -- who believe that it isn't a gun control issue say let's focus on mental health and
7:33 am
hours and then everybody mofaz ves on because the fact of the matter is you have a whole bunch of political leaders who don't want to deal with the politics of this, who are afraid othe nra who the president mentioned and not by name and the president himself succumbed to gun politics in his first term. it is interesting to note that he has -- and i think sandy hook abeasolutely sort of changed him on this, but he's succumbed to the politics of this in the first term. he avoided the gun issue and when eric holder, the then attorney general, wanted to pursue an assault weapons ban, he got slapped down by the white house in the first term because they were afraid of the politics of this. so the president is not alone on this front, and he's also -- when he lectures everybody, he probably has to look in the mirror, too, and i think that he does regret not pushing this now in hine sight, so i guess my question is going to be what is he going to do in the next wpek or two? does he throw down the gauntlet.
7:34 am
he did so after sandy hook. he sounded like a guy who was going to do that, but that's what it's going to take. it's not just us in the media. he probably has to go grab this and campaign around the country around as if he wants to refocus washington on this issue. >> in just a year and three months left in his term. chuck todd, thank you very much. >> of course, these are some of the topics that will be at town hall on monday. we're sitting down with hillary clinton and have a one-on-one interview and questions from you, our viewers. if you have a question for secretary clinton, you can post it on facebook, twitter, instagram and use the the #h larytoday. that's monday on "today." >> we look forward to that. mr. roker, how about the forecast. >> let's see what's been going on, the latest on joaquin, and right now currently a category 4 storm, 130-mile-per-hour winds and it's moving away from the bahamas at about northwesterly speed. three miles per hour. now here's the other problem. we've got joaquin down here blocking an area of high
7:35 am
pressure. there will be another low pressure area developing 2,000 miles between the systems, and that's causing all these winds now to just fire right into the coast, and so you can see coastal flood warnings, watches, flooding. 51 million people under some sort of a coastal flood watch or warning, and then we've also got a lot of heavy rain due to the opener low in the southeast. heavy rainfall over the next three days and up to 20 inches of rain in south carolina, northeastern georgia. we're also looking with flood alerts, 31 million people are under the gun for flash flood watches, life-threatening flash flooding through sunday and record-breaking rainfall possible. that's what's going on zierjts al, rain, wind heading our way throughout the day. rain is light now. it will pick up in intensity. high temperature, chilly. in the mid 50s. windswept rain tonight. local street and highway flooding.
7:36 am
coastal flooding a concern especially along the jersey shore. more rain tomorrow but tapers down during the day. low 60s sunday. just leftover shower. upper 60s. joaquin stays offshore on monday and 70s middle of next week. and that's your latest weather. matt? >> all right, al. thanks very much. israel. it's a national pastime, baseball. >> yeah. >> you go to a game and what do you do, you take selfies? take selfies. why these sorority girls are catching a lot of heat on tv and all over the internet. >> all right. but coming up next, carson's kicking off our pink power

8:27 am
times in a day i read steve jobs is a genius. what do you do? >> i play the orchestra. >> set rogen, seth, good morning. >> very emotive, look at that. >> it's intense, you know, we hear steve jobs, steve jobs, steve jobs. there's another steve. >> there is, the guy who actually invented the computer. >> it was steve jobs who was the ideas guy, is that fair, and steve wozniak was the guy who was the tech guy? >> from my interpretation of it, steve jobs was the guy who recognized that computers are something that would appeal to more than like techie geek people, and it was something that actually everyone would want. wozniak was the guy who -- who conceived of the notion that computers were something that the average person could have but it was very personally driven. he just wanted one for himself. he didn't think everyone would want one of these. >> it's a dramatic role and steve jobs died tragically several years ago. steve wozniak is alive. you had the chance to meet him. >> yeah. >> did you pick something up in that meeting, something in his
8:28 am
personality or his demeanor that helped you with the character? >> honestly, his passion for technology was something i'd never encountered before, like the way chefs talk about food or we talk about film or you talk about, you know, journalism is the way he talks about like requires glued to a piece of plastic, and i literally had never met anyone who had that sort of passion about engineering and -- and technology before. >> we've all dreamed about it if there were a move made of our lives who would play us. how did you feel with you playing him, did he say was bradley cooper busy? >> he seemed okay with t.sure he wasn't at the top of his list and he knew when i was which is good. >> didn't you go to a screening with him, in the same room? wasn't that awkward? >> had seen the movie already and knew he wouldn't be at the screening i was at unless he liked it so it wasn't that awkward honestly. >> in the clip that we showed getting into this set there's clearly some friction between these two.
8:29 am
how would you describe the relationship. >> in the film the relationship is strained, and i'm constantly trying to get steve jobs to acknowledge things that were instrumental to apple's success that he didn't have allotted to do with and, therefore, he had no interest in acknowledging them at all. >> so much buzz and let's end with a rapid fire of genius bar. >> great. >> you know what genius bar is. >> those are the guys that doesn't fix your computer properly. >> the place you go to ask questions. quick questions. what was your first apple product? >> mac computer. >> what was the long song you paid on the iphone? >> the sock that came out yesterday. >> the last movie you downloaded on iactual? >> "wild tales" from argentina, i think it was, great movie. >> and what was the last picture you took on your iphone, was it a self? >> with mindy kaling's book so i was proud of myself so i took a genius with it. >> genius bar and you're great in this movie.

the susan g. george washington bridge. 8:57 right now on friday, october 2nd. good morning. communities along the jersey weather. preparations began earlier this week in belmar and other places damaged by sandy four years ago. beaches. water is drained out of some of the lakes to prevent them from overflowing. the wind and the rain is is not hurricane joaquin. this is a separate storm with nor'easter like conditions can.
8:48 am
tomorrow, light rain and wind. sunday, leftover showers. but 62 for the high. might be one of the better days. tuesday, mostly sun. ahead on the "today" show, go into the kitchen with al as he shows you how to make a delicious chicken dinner.
8:49 am
this morning on "today's take," jessica biel opens up about motherhood, justin timberlake and what she wants every woman to know, and then wait until you see how these brooklyn ballers train for their games, and al's in the kitchen making the best chicken dish ever. all that and more coming up next. >> from nbc news, this is "today" take" with al roker, willie gyetvai, natalie morales and tamron hall live from studio
8:50 am
1a in rockefeller, plaza. >> welcome to "today" on a rainy morning in new york city, actually a rainy morning across large parts of the country. willie along with al and tamron. natalie is in rowsburg, oregon, covering the shooting on the campus of umpqua community natalie, let's go right to you with the lateest. >> reporter: good morning to you guys, once again. college. it's actually closed and the road leading into the campus is closed through the weekend and will reopen again on monday. this is pretty much an active crime scene right now. this is a community really in mourning. it's a small town and rosenberg has 20,000 people and that kind of community where everybody knows everyone in town and last night over 1,000 people held a candlelight vigil at a nearby park to remember the victim and to honor and pay tribute to them because in times like these it's the victims that we want to remember. we're also beginning to hear incredible stories of courage under fire.
8:51 am
law enforcement was quick to arrive on the scene here in less than ten minutes. got to the campus and perhaps that prevented even more loss of life. at 10:38 in the morning yesterday the first week of school, classes were settling in and that's when there were the first reports of an active shooter on campus. chris harper mercer, 26 years old, was reportedly armed to the teeth with three guns, handguns, and a rifle. several magazines of ammunition, and he -- and a ballistics vest and according to some survivors he reportedly asked the victims to stand up and asked them their religion, and if they said they were christian he then shot some in the head. now, as these horrible details emerge so are many of the questions that we still don't have answers to, and the -- the biggest one, of course, is why,
8:52 am
campus and did he have any connection to this college that. we do not yet know. what we are learning about though are these incredible stories of survivors and heroics. one of them chris mintz was a student here. he's an army veteran and had served ten years. he just started college. he was shot multiple times according to friends and family. he is expected to survive. he apparently pleaded with gunmen saying it was his son's birthday so to please let him live and his aunt tells nbc news that he actually was cited for being a hero and protected others as he was being shot himself, risking his life to prevent others from being injured or killed. guys, i'll send it back to you. >> yet another case of the veteran of the united states military stepping up in a crisis and perhaps saving lives. natalie, thank you so much. this thebviously is a huge
8:53 am
it's the 31st mass shooting since columbine. that in 1999. this includes shootings with three or more victims. that's how we're defining it here, although there are many definitions of a mass shooting. this is the 142nd school shooting since the massacre at sandy hook elementally school in december 2012, from every town from gun safety and nbc news has counted four college campus shootings since the start of the 2015 school year. president obama stepped to the podium in the white house briefing room and was exasperated as he spoke. >> somehow this has become routine. the reporting is routine. my response here at this podium ends up being routine, the conversation and the aftermath of it. we've become numb to this.
8:54 am
have to come out again during my tenure as president to offer my condolences to families in these circumstances. but based on my experience as president i can't guarantee that. and that's terrible to say. >> going back to the campus, earlier this morning savannah spoke to two students in the classroom next door to the shooedings, cassandra welding and sarah cobb described what they heard yesterday. >> about half an hour, 40 minutes into class and i hear this loud noise and like cassandra i thought maybe it was a book or a table or something but it was kind of suspiciously loud so my parents always from a young age told me to be alert, be aware of your surroundings so at that point i was looking around, and i looked out window and i -- i saw two girls running from the building, and that's when i knew, it registered to me that was a gunshot so i told the teacher we've got to get out of here, got to get out of here now
8:55 am
and she was leaning over to the door that connects the two classrooms by the wall, and she asked is everyone okay, are you all right, and she almost reached to open the door which thank god she didn't pause that would have been the end right there. we all probably would have had the shooter in the classroom also. >> you know, you -- this is now almost becoming one of your biggest fears as a parent is, that you know, you -- you send your kids to school, whether it's elementary school, middle school, high school, college, and what happens if you start to see something like this. >> yeah. >> i mean, the thought of every parent in that community who has a child or knows somebody who worked at that school, you know, until they found out what happened to their loved one. frightening. >> doesn't matter where you live. can you can be living in you'll oregon or suburban chicago or chicago publicschools. >> one of the organiations that tracks these mass shoot some thngs called every town because
8:56 am
happen and to your point, al,n new town, 26 children and 6 staffers and aur was movie theater. the incident that happened in louisiana was at a movie theater so whether it's a child whose parent gives them a hug and sends them off to school or the teachers who managed to escape from the theater in louisiana on the last week of a break and thought we'll catch a funny film and barely made it out alive. it is what the president said both routine reaction of himself and our jobs as journalists as well. how do we have a provocative, important, fearless conversation about what to do next, and that is the complexity of it because already mike huckabee, who is running for president, has come out and said the president is using this and then we get back into that same dialogue. where are those voices, dare i
8:57 am
a heartfelt real and unafraid conversation. >> and what are the specific policy proposals out thereto that would actually work because oregon does have universal background checks. things in place to stop this. >> and it didn't work yesterday. >> obviously. natalie will be there and we'll continue to follow all of the latest development. something that hopefully and i think it will. i know will warm your heart today. you know, we love taylor swift. her talent is obviously at a next level, but her heart apparently matches that talent and beauty. taylor swift has donated $50,000 to her backup singer. his name is kim toshi davidson. his 13-month-old nephew is battling cancer and we're celebrating our cancer survivors today but baby aiden, his picture, the family actually started a gofundme account to help pay for medical treatment. talk about a parent's fear, not being able to afford the care your child needs to potentially save their life.
8:58 am
well, taylor donated and posted this message, baby aiden, i'm lucky enough to perform with your uncle toshi on tour and all of us are praying for you and your momma is sending so much love your way. love taylor. toshi wrote back, and said taylor swift is an angel and my family and i cannot thank her enough. she's an incredible human being, and i saw a little video of them on stage, just to know that obviously she has what people would assume is the perfect life. no life is psrfect but you make these assumptions about people and that she stops in the middle of everything that she's doing and she says this is not a backup dancer. this is my friend. >> right. >> and i want to help. >> and those are families out on those tours. >> have to be, have to be. >> spend so much time. >> good for taylor, and you know, what we're wishing the best to baby aiden as well. >> absolutely. this is kind of fun. the brooklyn mets had a rather unusual training session, they
