7:05 am
time the trigger was pulled was bought legally. had several high capacity magazines, the clips that hold the rounds, allowing him to fire more shots before reloading. those magazines are legal in virginia add indeed in most of e nation. the gun was fitted with a silencer and it's not clear this morning whether he legally possessed that. those have to be registered under federal law. as for the motive it remains unclear this morning. nhe had apparent criminal record and his neighbors say they were shocked he would do such a thing. >> i am petrified. i lived right under him. could have been me, my girlfriend or roommate and -- he seemed like a nice guy. he introduced himself when we got, when we first moved in. that's just crazy.r: >> reporte police searched cradock's home friday night looking for more information on what might have been the motive. the fbi and atf are now helping virginia police process the crime sceneid inse that city office ngbuil
7:06 am
peter? >> pete williams in washington for us this morning. pete, thank you very much. as we noted, a police officer was among those injured and the awful shoot-out that took place here, she in the hospital but believed that his bullet-proof vested ma vest may have saved his life. my colleague is athe general hospital with the latest on the condition of the survivors. hans, good morning. >> reporter: good morning,pe r. authorities haven't released any information about the deceased, that includes their names, ages, gender. it's a similar situation here at this hospital where we do have three patients. overall, there are four patients in area three are still in critical condition, and one is in fair condition.he this is t latest information as of late last night. what we do know is one patient died on the way to this hospital, and that two of the initial five patients brought here were pronounced dead yesterday evening.
7:07 am
olice ou mentioned the officer that was saved by his bullet-proof vest. we don't know the extent of his condion and are awaiting more information on that and just how extensive his potential injuries were. we know authorities were quick to say he was saved by that vest, an indication his injuries are not among the most severe. an update at 8:00 a.m.rom the police and the hospital will update shortly thereafter and we'll have all the latest. nter? >> hanshols here in virginia beach a with uswell. hans, thank you very much. it's a horrifying and heartbreaking routine across the country. another deadly shooting. the latest toll, we've reported no3 killed as a result of the accesses that took place here just yesterday. >> thank you, peter. the gunman began in the parking lot and moved through three floors offed municipal center before engaging officers in that extended shoot
7:08 am
out. we're joined from jim kavanaugh with t more on police response. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> hans gave an update on the injured officer. talk how law enforcement officers responded tohe situation and how they engaged. >> right. well, you know, first off, getting shot with a .45 in a bullet-proof vest is like a major league fastball hitting you in the chest can and it's going to be a lot of bruising and injury. luckily the officer's going to survive, thank god. they were absolute heroes because they useded formula where police tactics changed, ostcolumbine, when shooters motives changed. often left out of the discussion. shooters' motives changed instead of a robbery,rying to get away or take somebody hoage, they were mass killing so police ttics changed. here two detectives, two canine officers went in. sheinelle, this killer planned it, had a distinct advantage with a silencer.
7:09 am
he killed first in the parking lot nap should be noted by all. if he did not have a silencer, that report of a .45 istr exely loud. i would venture to say on a municipal complex, someof polic cer would have heard that shot and maybe multiple shots in the parking lot. this silenced weapon allowed him to make entry. then once inside, even people in the building, sheinelle, didn't know it was shooter. they were unclear. they heard something but didn't know it was close or far away. they had to investigate. this gave him time and, of course, he had extended magazines. sometimes those have as many as 30 rounds per magazine and methodically goes through his killing spree. the quipo action of lice. the training is, we all took it, the first two, three officers in. there and quickly get you try not to go in yourself. you get killed you can't h p anybody. sometimes you have to but you try to get two or threein this case four moved in quickly and engaged him in a gun battle.
7:10 am
he has advantage in the gun battle too. a silencer. flashn doesn't give a big or recoil. he can shoot a little more accurately. move more quietly, but the officers got hill. got him barricaded in there and were able to kill >> so that is what made this such a deadly shooting. essentially the silencer and the muffler? >> three things made it extremely deadly. e silencer, one, wouldn't get noticed as quick certainly from the parking lot inside. two, extended magazines. 30-round magazines. he can shoot, shoot and shoot, shooting unarmed people can just go on. little chance to even tackle him because he has so many rounds nd, of course, is using a .45 caliber weapon. also knows the territory. he's not a stranger to the building. he knows the premises. choking 0en an empty grudge from employment and can kill at will. likely wanted to go on but
7:11 am
officers were so fast. he knew, sheinelle, this killer knew that if he fired thatwiun out a silencer, the officer wos have been on him even faster in that municipal center. so it was a diabolical plot. unfortunately, we even have a bill on the hill trying t change the law on silencers, which has been very strict sinc. 1934 and they've tried to repeal that. here we are in america on gun laws, it's a bad place for us. trying to take away, for example, the registration of le sier. we need to keep that. >> and spark a renewed conversation. jim cavanaugh, thauv. mike viqueira at the white house. good morning. >> reporter: a white house spokesman said last night the president was briefed on the shooting and i monitoring the situation, but ass of thi moment, literally 13 hours since the violence in virginia beach

7:13 am
happening. me covered in peter started asking her what she saw and heard standing outside. >> start with you. you were in the car outside. saw the photo of took of the man with blood on his chest. what did you see, and hear standing outside? >> i saw police with guns running towardshe building behind me. i was parked in between the two buildings and then i saw this man and a police officer come running by and come in the front of my car withlood all over himself and i opened my door. i had my grandson in the car and opened my door and i said an rn, do you need me to help you and the police officer said, no. get back in your car. so i got back in the car and thought that washe t safest place to be. >> you started texting photos to your daughter inside? to be clear, y had come to pay off a driving ticket. didn't work here. all of a sudden found out there's an active shooter in the building from you y mom. what d make of this?
