more about the extremists behind that attack. we have team coverage starting with abc's ryan owens in garland. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: good morning, to you, george. that is the event center behind me. this is an active scene. you might be able to hear the helicopters up above. the bomb squad, all these hours later, still looking at the suspects' car. they're very worried it could be packed with explosives. just before 7:00 a hail of gunfire outside a civic center east of dallas hosting a controversial art exhibit. >> get back in the building. >> reporter: people scatter as officers scramble to take down two men who drive up get out of their car and open fire on police. >> we hear boom boom boom. >> reporter: a group called american freedom defense initiative knownotorious for its anti-islamic views hosting this award ceremony to give $10,000 to the best cartoon
depricketting the prophet muhammad. the main speaker at the event, allegedly on an al qaeda hit list. this event was well publicized and the group's founder, seen here posing with the s.w.a.t. team before the shooting shelled out 10 grand for extra security. >> this is an assault on freedom of speech very much like the "charlie hebdo" jihad slaughter. >> reporter: here in texas, one member of that security team school resource officer bruce joiner was shot in the leg. he's already out of the hospital this morning. >> officers that were close by engaged the two men, shot and killed them both. >> reporter: back inside you can actually see the uncertainty as the event is streaming live. >> we are going to move y'all into the auditorium here in just a minute. i just need everybody to remain calm. >> reporter: people trapped there singing to calm their nerves. ♪ and the rockets' red glare ♪ >> reporter: the two suspects' vehicle reportedly heavily armed. s.w.a.t. teams and a bomb squad
with robots spent all night working around the car. the suspects' bodies still on the pavement nearby. and they're still working at this hour. it should be no surprise to hear that there were plenty of threats against this event given the context of it all but we're told nothing specific. meanwhile, george investigators working very hard to identify the two men and their motive for what certainly appears to be an attempted terror attack right here on american soil. george. >> thanks ryan. we are joined by eded by our reporter on the scene much you were just outside the center when this went down. what did you see and hear? >> we were outside. me and my photographer outside getting exterior jobs of the event. a cartoon contest of muhammad. outside the event getting exteriors when we started to hear what sounded like firecrackers. three to five very faint shots.
we now know those were handgun shots and then after that some high-powered gunshots and as soon as that happened officers started to tell us we needed to get down or get inside the building so we started to -- they started to usher us into the building and then they put us in that secure room. >> reporter: a lot of security. they were prepared for something like this no question. >> yeah you know we knew that there was going to be security at this event. we were actually outside the barricades when we were taking these shots and kind of almost joking to each other, hey, look look at all these, these barricades and no protesters here. but then of course reality hits and we see what's happening here and we realize that -- you know hats go off to garland pd and the s.w.a.t. team. i think they did an incredible job responding to this situation. >> how about the event itself the organizers said it was organized to take a stand for free speech.
is it fair also to call it anti-muslim? >> i think you can assume that. just hearing people off the podium thisser saying you know islam doesn't belong in america and after they were saying these things there was -- there were loud cheers in the room there so i think you could assume there was some anti-islam sentiment going on in that -- at that event in that room. >> well thank you for your time thanks for your testimony on what happened yesterday. robin. >> all right there, george. now to abc chief investigative correspondent brian ross learning more about the attackers and brian has some exclusive information for us this morning. good morning. >> good morning, robin. this morning fbi agents are searching the phoenix, arizona, home of a man they say is one of the suspects in the texas shooting. a senior fbi official told abc news the suspect's name is elton simpson, a 30-year-old man convicted five years ago in a terror investigation but placed on probation and allowed to remain free. fbi agents and a bomb squad this
morning are outside the suspect's home at an apartment complex in phoenix. officials said they are awaiting a search warrant to enter the apartment. officials say they believe that the suspect, simpson, is the person who set out several twitter messages that appear to have come prior to the texas attack sunday. the bro with me and myself have given bay ah to amirul mumineen. followers of isis had been sending messages about the event in texas for more than a week calling for attacks. about ten days ago "the brothers from the "charlie hebdo" attack did their part. it's time for the brothers in the u.s. to do their part." another wrote just last friday "brothers in garland, texas, please go to there with your weapon bops or with your knives. threaten your enemies and the enemies of allah." some residents at the phoenix apartment complex have been told
to leave their hopes until the fbi bomb squad can give an all-clear about the suspect's apartment. the suspect, simpson is well known to the fbi. he was convicted of lying to agents in 2010 about his plans to travel for jihad in africa but a judge ruled then the government adequately purchased he was going to join a terror group and put him on probation instead of sending him to jail. >> the security officer shot already released from the hospital. >> that's right. >> we turn to that scary fire on a san francisco tour bus. smoke seen blocks away when the packed double decker went up in flames but thanks to some quick-acting witnesses everyone managed to get off safely. abc's kendis gibson has the story. >> reporter: a flying inferno in the heart of the san francisco tourist district. watch as this double decker tour bus packed with dozens of passengers bursts into flames sunday morning. >> we have a two-story tour bus on fire no victims, fully
engulfed now the engine compartment's going up. >> reporter: the raging fire leaping from the back of the bus. >> oh my god. this is crazy. >> reporter: this surveillance footage capturing bystanders chasing the bus, one of the first to reach it timothy parker seen here carrying a ladder to help the passengers get off. >> i climbed up the ladder and the people that were on the top deck started to exit. >> reporter: the tourists on board scrambling to get out with only seconds to spare. >> this lady is like the bus is on fire you guys teed to go down, go down go down. >> reporter: the flames blowing out windows and twisting metal. >> double decker bus on fire. >> reporter: everyone on board miraculously escaped unscathed. this morning officers investigating what triggered the blast that left this charred bus a burned out shell. >> i've never seen a tour bus catch on fire. it was definitely a first. >> reporter: for "good morning america," kendis gibson abc news los angeles. >> our thanks to kendis.
now to a disturbing airport security breach. a man arrested in nevada after allegedly stealing a small plane going on a joyride. this incident is raising concerns about the use of small planes as weapons. abc's david kerley has that story for us. >> why don't you come down please? >> reporter: an air traffic controller sounded more like a hostage negotiator after a small plane like this was stolen and was in the air. it was saturday night. that big night in las vegas for the historic fight. >> i've already committed enough felony felonies. i can't believe i'm never going to get to do this again. >> you will you will. >> reporter: the joyride after midnight with 27-year-old evan grant, allegedly at the controls. he'd reportedly taken flying lessons. the controller even offering to meet the rogue pilot for a meal. >> we'll go grab something to eat. we'll talk about this. >> reporter: after an hour up in the air grant finally lands. >> since you've kept me company i'll just make it easier for you and i'll just come down.
are the police waiting for me down there? >> reporter: they were and he was arrested. the question now, how could this happen and are we at risk from these small airports? now, officials have been concerned about big airports like this and jetliners since the 9/11 attacks but one federal official tells me there is growing concern about these small planes and small airports and, robin, the official mentioned that gyro copter landing at the capital as an example. >> you can see it in the background. now to amy with the other top developing stories and another quiet night in baltimore. >> the first night without a curfew has passed. the national guard leaving and six police officers facing criminal charges in the death of freddie gray due in court may 27th. police say during last week's violence, 113 officers were injured. 200 businesses destroyed. well nine americans remain unaccounted for in nepal after that devastating earthquake.
the u.s. military beginning relief fights using osprey aircraft. the quake death toll tops 7200 people. one man reportedly 101 years old was rescued from the rubble eight days after the quake. back here in this country a dramatic rescue on a california freeway. a biker was hit and became pinned under this truck. other drivers pulled over to help and urged the pan to stay calm. one of the first people on the keen was a firefighter heading to work. he propped up the truck with a jack and eventually slid the biker out. he is recovering from his injuries. and new fallout from the boxing match in las vegas this weekend. more fans are calling for a rematch after what critics called a lackluster fight between floyd mayweather and manny pacquiao. several cable companies now offering refunds because of a pay-per-view glitch. mayweather's win was good for $100 million. but he could make twice that once all the receipts are counted. and finally, we often see
people stuck in strange places but nothing quite like this. a half naked man who got his foot caught in a basketball hoop in seattle, more than a dozen police officers tried to get him free. police tweeted he may be arrested for property destruction or at least goaltending. no word on how he became stuck there but i personally believe this could be a fantastic ad for just say no. >> i think you're right there. thank you there, amy. thanks so much. now over to george with a special guest with a big announcement in i'm here with carly fiorina, the former tech ceo republican party leader has been traveling the country exploring a run for president tweeted out last night she's coming on "gma" to make some big news so welcome to "gma." let's get right to it. are you running for presidenty why are you the best person for the job. >> yes, i am running for president. i think i'm the best person for the job because i understand how the economy actually works. i understand the world. who's in it. how the world works and
understand bureaucracies. that's what our federal government has become a giant bloated unaccountable corrupt bureaucracy. i understand technology which is a tool both to reimage government and to re-engage citizens in the process of government. and i understand executive decision-making which is making a tough call in a tough time with high stakes for which you're prepared to be held accountable. i don't think you read about that. you learn it by doing it. >> you laid out owl your experience. almost every single president has held elected office and how do you convince the voters you have the relevant experience. >> what you said is true over the last 50 or 60 years but it isn't how our nation started. it was intended to be a citizen government and come to this place in our nation's history where we think we need a professional political class. i don't believe that. as i've been out there across the country people don't believe that either. they're kind of tired of the political class. and they believe that we need to return to a citizen government.
this is a pivotal point for our nation so i think it's totally reasonable to look outside the political class that's been in washington for a really long time. >> you know, as you've been traveling around the country you've had tough things to say about hillary clinton, not trustworthy, flawed character. doesn't know what leadership means but back in 2008 you called her a focused intel jeps and powerful leader. what changed? >> she is focused. she is empathetic to a degree and highly intelligent, hard working, dedicated her life to public service. all of those things are admirable so i have a lot of admiration for hillary clinton but she clearly is not trustworthy, has not been transparent about a whole set of things that matter. she wasn't trans parent about benghazi in fact just the option peddled fiction about it and hasn't ben transparent about her server and e-mails and now we see all these foreign government donations to the clinton global initiative at a time when she was secretary of state and at a time when she said she would disclose those
donation all of those gets to trustworthiness. >> sounds like you're ready to take her on. just announced you're running. you'll come back later to talk to robin about your brand-new book "rising to the challenge." thanks for coming in this morning. now over to lara. >> thank you so much george. all the excitement over the new royal baby. kate and william are back home with their new baby princess. so much exciting surrounding the little girl. the big question now, what is her name? abc's bob woodruff with the latest. >> reporter: baby makes four an heir and now a spare. kate and william showing off their 8 pound 3 ounce sleeping cutie to the world. and gorgeous george mastering the royal wave visiting the little princess for the first time reminiscent of his dad's visit 30 years ago. just two days old, this morning the couple reportedly heading to admiral hall their country home where they'll see the queen who is at san drink ham.
>> i'm sure she's desperate to see the princess. >> reporter: uncle harry reportedly spoeng to them by phone to congratulate them. the palace releasing a statement for harry who is down under, she's absolutely beautiful. i can't wait to meet her. yesterday it was a royal family affair. fit for two kings and future queen kate introducing the day-old princess to their nearest and dearest, grandpa carol and auntie pippa followed by a very proud prince charles and ka mail la and grandpa middleton middleton. the big question what will she be named. diana, the sentimental favorite. >> diana is still one of the bookies' favorites, it would be too great a burden there's talk of. i'm not sure that's true. could be a great inspiration. >> reporter: it is true that there's a possibility that this little baby will get the name diana but the better the gamblers believe the most likely are alice, charlotte and victoria. hopefully we'll hear that later
on today. lara. >> hopefully, thank you very much, bob. i personally am rooting for diana. >> that would be nice. a beautiful day there across the pond. not so much in the midwest. >> not at all. another day of severe weather we have 50 severe storm reports including this hail in minneapolis and southwest of winston, nebraska. the storms are up, the atmosphere is agitated through western texas and illinois select stills brought to you by walgreens.

good morning, america. right now fbi and police on the scene in texas this morning investigating that terror attack by two armed extremists. also right now, bruce jenner back on tv last night for the first time since his revealing interview with diane. news about his new fight this morning. and the search is on for this mystery lottery winner. he hit the jackpot but officials say he has no idea. >> could you imagine? we do say good morning, america, to you on this may 4th so you know let's say it in unison. >> all: may the fourth be with you. >> all right, thank you. yes, it is that time again. a holiday for "star war" fans an the world and that huge exclusive reveal. brand-new pictures from "vanity fair" and we are celebrating
with a stormtrooper takeover. look at all those super fans out in times square. so many great secrets just ahead. forgot to mention the smoke machines. >> that too. >> come in early in the morning and see these guys getting suited up in storm trooper uniforms. first bruce jenner as you said back on tv for the first time last night since his emotional interview with diane sawyer. now he's facing a wrongful death lawsuit for his role in a deadly car crash earlier this year. abc's chris connelly has the story. >> we have this great urge to get out of the house. >> reporter: bruce jenner back on keeping up with the kardashians sunday night offering fatherly counsel to scott disick to spend more time with his and kourtney kardashian's three kids. >> reporter: jenner's first appearance since that interview with diane sawyer. >> for all intents and purposes i am a woman. >> reporter: but jenner the subject of legal drama. a wrongful death lawsuit filed
on friday by two stepchildren of the late kim howell the 69-year-old who died february in a head-on collision on pacific coast highway in malibu allegedly after her lexus was struck behind by jenner's cadillac escalade and propelled into oncoming traffic. >> are there any injuries? >> i'm going to say, yes, it looks pretty bad. one car is destroyed. >> reporter: seeking unspecified damages the sibling suit alleges negligent, careless and reckless behavior. >> in california the law requires you to drive with a safe following distance. so you can react and brake and stop in time. >> are you okay bruce? >> reporter: jenner who passed an on-site sobriety test has not been charged in connection with the incident but the sheriff's department says its investigation continues. >> it's much more likely that a verdict for liability could be won in civil court here than a conviction in criminal court. >> reporter: the wreck took place days after the form he
olympian sat down with diane sawyer for that interview. a statement from jenner released at that time saying in part "my heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident." this morning his representative declining comment about the lawsuit. for "good morning america," chris connelly, abc news, new york. >> thanks to chris for that. let's bring in dan abrams now. no criminal charges filed against bruce jenner yet. what are the legal questions in play. >> three key question number one, did he cause the accident? i think the answer to that is probably going to be at least in part. but that's only part of the question. the most important question is okay, even if he did, was he negligent? meaning did he do something wrong? did he fail to show a duty of care when he was driving? you need that. you can't just say someone caused it therefore, they're responsible. there also has to be a level of negligence. number three is going to be damages. remember, these are stepchildren suing. so there are going to be a lot of questions as to what was
their relationship and actual loss in terms of the numbers in if they prove negligence these could be huge. >> they could be enormous if the family is able to demonstrate that this was a real loss for them, they had a close relationship i know it's an ugly thing to talk about but when you're talking about wrongful death suits that's what you talk about when discussing damages, how much did the people actually lose. >> but finally the police say they're still investigating. criminal charges really likely? >> it's unlikely. not that it's impossible. the question again comes back to the negligence question which was how negligent was he? if he had been texting or drunk or if he had done something else, that could have led to criminal charges. that would be determined to be gross negligence and you could see criminal charges here because none of that seems to be at play i think it's unlikely you're going to see criminal charges and i think the fact that they're filing the civil suit now also indicates that it's unlikely there will be criminal charges. >> thanks very much. >> now to the search for that lotto winner who walked away with only a fraction of the cash
he was owed. take a look at this surveillance video. this man getting $75 for a winning scratch-off ticket at a los angeles area gas station. well the catch is it's really worth a thousand times more. abc's tom llamas has the story. >> reporter: this morning the hunt is on for a mystery man who hit a jackpot. the manage cashing in after scratching off a straight flush on this wild west lottery ticket. his prize, 75 grand. but the clerk behind the counter in a palmdale california gas station initially reading the prize incorrectly giving the man just $75. now the clerk realizing his mistake wants to find the customer last seen leaving the gas station driving a large truck and wearing a backward baseball cap to make sure he gets the right prize. when it comes to winning, there are simple steps you can take to protect your lucky ticket. >> we advise strongly encourage
all players to turn that ticket around sign the ticket in ink. that way it's yours. >> reporter: the man the store clerk says is the winner has at least six months to claim the $74,925 he's still owed before the ticket expires. for "good morning america," tom llamas, abc news, new york. >> i like that. lessen $75 he already has. >> i think he'll turn up. >> i think so. i think you're right there. that's a beautiful scene behind you, begin sfler looks so pu can see the little people here that gives you an idea of how big the waves are at the newport beach. a cruise ship had to dock in san diego. high surf alert in place, you could see waves up to ten feet plus temperatures to tucson,

let's look at the numbers. there was one study dong of 11,000 women. they found that 42% actually left the hospital within a day of giving birth. so in the uk it's not as unusual. here it's pretty much a land speed record. >> what is it here? >> you know most women tay in the hospital two nights because that's what most insurance plans cover and they want every minute of that time. they need the rest especially if they have babies or children at home and let's face it. not everyone has a full staff to help her when they get home so for moms that don't they need that time the support the nurses can give the baby and most women go home in 48 hours. >> i don't want to speak too much for ali. hamper our second baby than elliott, our first. is that common. >> every pregnancy, every labor is different but history matters and big generalizations with a second baby. second babies tend to be a little bigger which is not

name. >> and victoria we heard jen referring to kate and william's staff who will be helping them with this little bundle of joy. can you tell us what that looks like? >> well yes, kate looked so fantastic when she left hospital. she looked amazing. you couldn't believe that she had just given birth less than 12 hours earlier. so that of course is down to a little help from her staff. she had her hairdresser visit her in the hospital and maked sure her hair looked perfect. we know she had a visit from the midwife which is customary when they're discharged and we know she has george's nanny maria and of course her family are incredibly important here. she has her mum carol who is going to have a consistent presence over the next few weeks and, of course sister pippa. >> auntie pippa. that's right. i think you're rooting for the name victoria because of your namesake so you're out of the running in being able to vote.
>> of course i'm reaching for the name vick toia. a traditional royal name and i think it has every chance. >> wonderful to see you. thank you for that jen, thank you, as well. you'll be answering questions on twitter because people are curious about this in they sure are. >> thanks jen. >> we have to switch geers to sad news. the sudden death of dave goldberg. 47-year-old silicon valley star husband of sheryl sandberg was a lifelong advocate for women and the "lean in" author called him the love of her life. >> the team needs to work. >> reporter: beloved silicon valley entrepreneur dave goldberg, the husband of facebook coo sheryl sandberg and father of their two young children died suddenly friday night. he was just 47 years old. this morning, the cause of his death is unclear but memories are blooding social media. facebook founder mark zuckerberg a family friend calling goldberg
