7:15 am
department's request determining that she makes her own digs and also appears aware of questions and decisions being made with respect to the people that surround her. lee's reps are not commenting this morning. a real-life story that's still a page turner. for "good morning america," paula faris, abc news, new york. >> all right. so many people looking forward to that new book. >> i can't wait to read it. >> thank you, paula. we want to turn to comedian will ferrell. taking the field for a good cosplaying not one but ten different baseball teams in one day during spring training. abc's t.j. holmes has our story. >> reporter: from news anchor -- >> i'm ron burgundy. you stay classy san diego. >> reporter: to figure skater. >> i think i broke my ankle. >> reporter: to race car driver. >> shake and bake buddy. >> reporter: will ferrell has worn many hats on the big screen but thursday the funny man traded all those in for a baseball cap.

7:30 am
good morning, america. and right now police in ferguson still searching for the gunman would opened fire injuring two officers. at least three people questioned but then released. and right now the 19-year-old charged with killing a las vegas mother of four pleads not guilty in court. a lie detector test taken by a bank executive who appeared to be held hostage is raising new questions. good morning, everyone. we have a lot to get to this morning including robert downey jr. playing a real-life superhero and dan will bring us that. >> amy, that's right. we love him on the big screen as iron man but for one little boy the shtick is not an act. we'll show you what the superstar did that will help change this little boy'sdan, thanks. we begin with the latest on the case of that mom in las vegas gunned down in front of
7:31 am
her home last month. the man charged with her murder appeared in court pleading not guilty in a case that looks more complicated than the first reports of road rage. abc's kendis gibson has the story. >> reporter: it's the first we're hearing from erich nowsch. >> how do you plead to count one murder with use of a deadly weapon? >> not guilty. >> reporter: the 19-year-old pleading not guilty thursday to three felony charges including the murder of las vegas mom tammy meyers. the deadly encounter beginning in this school parking lot last month. tammy was teaching her teenage daughter how to drive. but police say they were told nowsch thought the people in the car were looking for him so he called a friend to pick him up. tammy's husband says that's when they followed her and pulled up alongside. >> what did he say? >> it was along some of the line i'm going to kill you and your daughter. >> reporter: police reports show toomey got her older son armed with a gun and went looking for the suspects when they found them nowsch allegedly opened fire before chasing them back to
7:32 am
their home and police say firing that deadly shot into tammy's head. >> we are conducting our own investigations and some of those already appear to be bearing fruit. >> reporter: nowsch's lawyers speaking with abc news overnight about possible options for his defense. >> self-defense appears to be a very likely direction for us to go on this case. >> reporter: in another bizarre twist nowsch's lawyers confirm their client knew tammy meyers but would only say this about their relationship. >> there was interaction going on and potentially even funds being exchanged. >> reporter: as for the meyers' family tammy's husband firing off an impassioned facebook post overnight defending his family's name but say they will not officially comment until they see how the prosecution's case unfolds. for "good morning america," kendis gibson abc news los angeles. >> a lot of twists and turns here. dan abrams here for more on this and there does seem to be layers. >> so much seems to have changed
7:33 am
about what we thought we knew about this case from the beginning. but the question becomes how much does all of that matter legally? and the answer is maybe not that much. because -- >> why? >> the fundamental legal question is it self-defense and who shot first? and it sounds like the police believe they have evidence that the defendant shot first. now, what evidence could that be? first of all his own statements. it seems he was talking to friends and made a statement to the police. they may have physical evidence at the scene meaning shell casings or other evidence which suggests and this is a very important point you heard in the piece there that maybe he shot at the car before they got to the house first. >> that would be one thing but if he shot first does that end the case? >> no but it certainly is strong evidence. the only reason you'd be justified in shooting first would be if somehow you were reasonably in fear for your life. someone has a gun to your head and you shoot first you can probably claim self-defense but when you're talking about shooting from a car, it gets a lot harder to claim that.
7:34 am
so you've also got which is going to become important the testimony of the son himself, right. he was there. he witnessed this but the question is going to be why has this story evolved. >> how much does it matter that the family's story has changed so much. >> certainly matters as to their credibility and despends who has been saying this right? i mean we keep hearing that you know the family says. you've got to believe that a lot of these accounts are coming from the son because he was the one who was there. if his story has changed over time that would certainly impact his credibility. >> okay dan abrams thanks very much. >> okay. >> all right. now to a strange new twist in that bizarre case of an attempted bank robbery in connecticut. a bank executive saying masked men supposedly staged a home invasion and strapped him with what looked like a bomb. well now there are questions about his story after the results of a lie detector test were revealed. abc's gio benitez is here with more on all of that. good morning, gio. >> reporter: good morning. the big question right now did the so-called victim lie about
7:35 am
his involvement? he fails the polygraph and reportedly ends the police interview quickly after. detectives now wondering what's the real story? this morning, new details calling into question one man's story about a dramatic home invasion and attempt to rob a connecticut credit union. >> the s.w.a.t. team came. >> reporter: a new search warrant revealing matthew yussman may not have told police the full truth. failing a portion of a polygraph test he took the day of the incidents. the warrant saying the results of that test indicated that yussman showed deception on the relevant test question are you lying about your involvement in the home invasion? >> there's so many unanswered questions in this case it makes it very difficult to assess what is the truth and who is really lying? >> reporter: it's a sharp turn from just two weeks ago when police believed yussman to be a victim of a violent robbery attempt at a credit union where
7:36 am
he is the chief financial officer. after finding him outside the bank in his car with what appeared to be an explosive device strapped on him just maim claimed two men broke into his home, forced him to drive to the bank. yussman managing to call the ceo, telling him not to call police and demanding access to millions of dollars. >> i just received on my cell phone a call from one of our vps stating that he and his mom who live together is a victim right now of a home invasion overnight. >> reporter: new documents reveal this morning that yussman's mother valerie also told police her son was a victim of an armed assault when she found two armed men standing over her son, his hands tied behind his back the men moving her to the bedroom at gun point. he said just pane instructed him with a vault combination of not one but two bank branches. >> told me to have all the staff to leave the branch so nobody gets hurt. >> reporter: now since police
7:37 am
found yussman in the parking lot, no money was stolen and no one was hurt. the investigation is ongoing but no charges have been filed and no leads on those so-called hostage-takers. lots of questions this morning, amy and george. >> all right. >> bizarre, indeed. >> it sure has. thank you. to ginger with the weather? we're starting in southern california. a place like much of the west that says, well we didn't have a winter and now it feels like we're fast feels like we're fast fording through spring and going straight to summer. look at san diego california, los angeles will get into the 90s. the marathon on sunday in la had to be moved up because it's so hot. huma and san diego reaching into the 09s. gusty winds 20 to 30 miles per hour sustained. 45 gusts in a couple of spots. it's the opposite here in.
7:38 am
>> reporter: # 2 in philadelphia. ginger some of the suburbs in the upper 20s, some of us need to would you want for a few patchy ice spots. high of 52. increasing clouds, rain arrives late tonight and continues through saturday. spring. >> but it won't feel like it. >> but will it feel like that. >> do we know that. >> yeah we know that. >> she gave us a warning yesterday. >> you're questioning whether spring begins in seven days or -- >> i know it begins but yesterday she said it was going to be cold but i was hoping that changed. >> no, it looks cooler. cooler than average but not terrible. >> you look very fresh and gorgeous. >> thank you. >> all is well. >> hopefully. coming up next on "good morning america," small plane making an emergency landing on a busy ski slope. how the pilot avoided disaster. the valet turned the keys
