officers and s.w.a.t. teams rushing to the scene, arriving at north park elementary school in san bernardino in just four minutes. as parents flooded to the school looking for answers. >> my son is in school and he just sent me a message. >> the school, a crime scene. s.w.a.t. teams swarming the area. some parents able to see their parents but they couldn't reach them. not able to hug them. >> oh, my gosh. she doesn't see me but i can see her. it looks like they're all crying and holding hands. >> reporter: row after row of students moving across school grounds. getting on buses taken to a safe location before being reunited with their families. authorities tonight say they believe they know who that subject is and they're searching his home. meanwhile, emotional images, parents finding their children
moments after confusion. >> kayna whitworth live with us from san bernardino. authorities believe they now know who the subject is. what are learning about a possible motive here. >> david, right now, authorities are trying to determine the relationship between the shooter and the female teacher. they're also saying that they believe the front desk staff was familiar with this shooter. david? >> kayna whitworth leading us off. thank you. we turn to the chaotic scene unfolding on a united flight in chicago. initially passengers were told the flight was overbooked. four passengers were told to get off. one of the passengers was dragged down the aisle and off the plane bleeding from the struggle. he did not want to give up his seat. tonight the airline's exblow nation. we ask, what are your rights once you board the plane? abc's david kerley covers aviation.
>> ow. >> reporter: it is a stunning scene. that passenger, yanked from his row. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: lip cut, dragged off a united jet, refusing to give up his paid seat. >> my gosh. >> reporter: tonight, an aviation security officer involved here, put on leave. but so many are asking, how could this have happened? john klassen in the orange shirt, saw and heard it all. >> after having done really nothing other than this is my seat, i've bought and paid for it. i need to go to louisville. i could not believe what i was seeing or hearing, i was in shock. >> reporter: united airlines told passengers the flight was overbooked. it now says it was a crew transport issue, four seats needed to get a crew from chicago to louisville. $800 in vouchers offered, no takers. so, a united's computer picked four passengers, including the 69-year-old man who said he's a doctor, saying he had to get
home to treat patients. the man slipped back on the jet. >> i need to go home. i need to go home. >> reporter: before he was removed again. united's ceo calls it an upsetting event. apologizes for having to reaccommodate these passengers. but no direct apology to the man. the overbooking, even demanding a paying customer give up a seat, is perfectly legal. >> it's part of a document that nobody ever looks at called the contract of carriage which basically gives the airline, the pilots the flight attendants all sorts of rights to do pretty much whatever they want. >> all right, david kerley live with us tonight. you reported there it's in the fine print part of the contract in the ticket. they can order you to get off even when you're on the plane. >> but passengers do have right. they're due compensation if they get bumped from the plane. >> a lot of people weighing in on this one today. david kerley thank you. we turn to an image syria is quite proud of this evening,
planes taking off from very airfield targeted by u.s. cruise missiles last thursday night. those jets taking off from that same base. and there was a moment today at the white house when our correspondent asked is there a new red line on syria? the white house answered but then changed the answer later this afternoon. here's abc's senior white house correspondent cecilia vega. >> reporter: president trump picking up the phone to congratulate the commanding officers aboard those navy ships that launched 59 missiles into a syrian airfield. but from the looks of these images on russian state tv, that airbase is back in business, planes taking off, once again. tonight, new accusations that russia was well aware of bashar al assad's chemical weapons stockpile. >> i believe that russia knew about the chemical weapons because they were operating from exactly the same base.
>> reporter: this as the white house seems to shift its red line on syria, saying it's not just the use of chemical weapons that would provoke an american response. >> is the red line -- just to clarify, the red line for this white house chemical warfare? is conventional warfare enough to get the president to go further there than -- than this white house has gone before? >> the answer is, is that if you gas a baby, if you put a barrel bomb in to innocent people, i think you can -- you will -- you will see a response from this president. that is unacceptable. >> reporter: but assad has frequently used barrel bombs against his own people, nearly 13,000 last year alone, according to human rights groups. spicer's statement, not the only mixed message on syria from the trump administration, top officials, divided on whether or not assad should stay or go. secretary of state rex tillerson saying it's up to the syrian people. >> we believe the syrian people will lawfully be able to decide the fate of bashar al assad. >> reporter: but u.n. ambassador nikki haley all but advocating for a regime change. >> it's going to be hard to see
a government that's peaceful and stable with assad. >> reporter: the white house now seeming to echo that. >> how far is the president willing to go to see bashar al assad out of power there? >> so, just to be clear, i can't -- i don't think it's -- it's -- you can't imagine a -- a stable and peaceful syria with assad as -- as -- in charge. >> reporter: tonight, from syria, russia and iran, a joint statement, accusing the u.s. of crossing a red line with its missile strikes, warning, "from now on, we will respond to anyone, including america, if it attacks syria and crosses the red lines." it comes as secretary of state tillerson heads to moscow for talks. as exxon ceo, tillerson once shared champagne with vladimir putin. but this time, there's no plans for the two to meet face-to-face. >> cecilia live with us from the white house. we heard sean spicer tell you if al assad barrel bombs innocent
people that president trump will respond. but tonight, the white house walking that back now? >> they certainly are, david. in fact, they're emphasizing that quote, this is not a shift in u.s. policy. they say nothing has changed if in fact the assad -- the white house decided to go after assad for the use of barrel bombs. this would mark an incredible shift in u.s. policy. david. >> all right, c us from the white house tonight. next this evening, new report on the deadly attacks just as the christian holy week begins. this video right here showing one of the bombers being directed to go through a metal director, instead stepping back towards two police and blowing himself up. isis taking responsibility with a new warning that's there's more to come. here's abc's brian ross. >> reporter: the choir was
singing when a bomb hidden under one of the crowded church pews went off. [ explosions ] [ screaming ] >> reporter: the camera feed went to a test pattern, but the audio of the chaos and the screams could still be heard from inside the church. it was one of two palm sunday attacks on christian coptic churches in egypt. in the second attack, surveillance cameras show a suicide bomber trying to avoid going through a church metal detector. as he is directed by a guard to go back, he detonates his explosive vest. even before today's funerals for the 44 worshipers who were killed, isis had claimed responsibility and spread fear across the christian world with threats of more to come. >> i think it is a tense time going into holy week at any church or large gathering of worshipers. >> reporter: isis has killed far more muslims than christians, but its war on christianity goes back to its founding, imagining attacks on rome, photo-shopping the isis flag over the vatican.
as pope francis sunday deplored the isis church attacks, security officials at the vatican and churches around the world were making plans to enhance the already-high security for the coming holy week. >> despite that threat from isis the pope still plans to travel to egypt. >> yes, that trip is still on. the vatican said the pope's mission to be beside his brothers in egypt in time of difficulty. we're also following breaking news tonight coming in from the alabama statehouse. the governor caught in a sex scandal there, just a short time ago resigning just as an impeachment hearing was getting under way. abc's steve osunsami is in montgomery tonight. >> reporter: it's a shameful ending tonight for a governor who's also a deacon at his baptist church, and recently argued that marriage is a holy union between one man and one woman. >> i have decided it's time for
me to step down as alabama's governor. >> reporter: alabama governor robert bentley didn't just have one woman, he had two, the campaign aide who authorities say he paid with money that he strong-armed from donors, and the wife who got even when she recorded cell phone conversations with his girlfriend, and then turned them over to police. >> baby, let me tell you what we're going to have to do. >> reporter: his alleged mistress, rebekah mason, is a campaign consultant and a former beauty pagent winner 20 years his junior. >> reporter: the governor is pleading guilty to two misdemeanor campaign finance violations. he'll avoid real jail time. david sf. >> steve osunsami with the late developments for us. next to that moment of victory for president trump. his supreme court nominee now on
