saved lives. he was entering the building, again, with a handgun and certainly his intent had been shown he wanted to harm the people. certainly, if they would not have done that, he would have killed or injured other people. >> reporter: now, as you heard there, what we know from police is this gunman entered the meeting with what is described as a long gun. then, apparently emptied it, then went back out to his car to get a handgun. that's when he was tackled to the ground. he was prevented from shooting other people. three people are dead. at least two more in the hospital at this hour. >> any details on the shooter, a motive, perhaps? >> reporter: that's a big question. i can tell you what we know so far. police identified the main suspect. he is from here. he is from this town.
he had an ongoing dispute, a year's long dispute with the township about his property. it was condemned. he was evicted and fighting for it. he said if i have to leave here, i have nowhere to go. they, meaning the town robbed me for so long. i want you to listen more to what the state police said about this property dispute. listen. >> apparently, the property was condemned possibly last thursday. he had been out of there since then and possibly longer than that. he showed up at this meeting unbeknownst to people that he was coming today. he showed up in a car with texas registration plates. >> reporter: it's not clear, zoraida, if the suspected shooter knew the victims or if anyone was specifically targeted here. at this early stage, we don't know the names of the victims yet. we are awaiting a press

whether the new al qaeda has the capacity to pull off a 9/11 style attack. the closing of embassies, some that are like bunkers a reminder the terror network can still make an impact. >> there's a propaganda victory for al qaeda because they are forces us, the united states to act in a way we otherwise wouldn't or don't want to. >> i think again, a fair assessment would conclude the opposite. >> reporter: as for the nsa surveilness leaked, lawmakers are pointing to this as proof these programs work. jay carney said he would rather not blend the two issues. police in michigan are looking for your help trying to find a killer. this medical student was found dead in his apartment last month, he had been shot. investigator says it was murder.
