good evening. we begin tonight with the breaking news, the dramatic shootout. tonight, one of the most wanted men after the terror attacks in paris, now captured alive. a massive show of force in brussels, belgium. and then this. a series of explosions, and then smoke, several arrests, including the man believed to be at the center of a four-month manhunt across europe. and it turns out, he was right in the neighborhood they began searching from the start. salah abdeslam, wounded but alive tonight. and authorities plan to grill him. here's alex marquardt with the takedown and this question, who was helping him to hide right there where the authorities had been for months? >> reporter: tonight, gunshots ringing out as heavily-armed s.w.a.t. teams moved in. residents running for cover as one of the world's most wanted
men is cornered on this brussels street. salah abdeslam, believed to be the man in the hooded sweatshirt, dragged off the pavement by police. shot in the leg, you can see him limping as they force him into the car. the special forces training their guns on nearby buildings, looking for possible accomplices. as an ambulance whisks abdeslam away to the hospital. now in custody, guarded by masked men. the 26-year-old abdeslam was the only survivor of the group of terrorists who carried out the highly coordinated deadly paris attacks that claimed 130 lives. a french citizen raised in belgium, he rented the car that drove a team of suicide bombers to the soccer stadium. a match between germany and france was under way, interrupted by those powerful blasts. abdeslam also rented the car that dropped off the isis gunmen at the bataclan theater, where an american rock band was performing, freezing in fear as shots rang out. a pregnant woman hanging out the window, begging for help.
not far away, abdeslam's brother ibrahim opened fire on this cafe, and later detonated a suicide vest. the chaos captured in this "daily mail" video. authorities believe salah adbeslam planned on carrying out another attack that night himself, but got cold feet. abc news has learned he then called two friends in belgium, asking to be picked up. this surveillance image, taken at a french gas station before he slipped across the border into belgium. in the months that followed, a massive manhunt. belgian authorities conducting more than 100 raids, arresting more than 58 people. abdeslam's friends told abc news he was trying to get to syria. it turns out he was hiding out right in his neighborhood. captured today just yards from his family's home. police got their big break tuesday, raiding this house in brussels. a gunfight ensued, one man killed by sniper fire. two others escaped. one of them believed to be
abdeslam, reportedly jumping out of this window. but he left something behind. forensic teams scoured the house and found his fingerprints, along with a cache of weapons and an isis flag. the net tightened, and this morning, after more than four months on the run, authorities finally got their man. tonight, the neighborhood still rocked with explosions, as the anti-terror operation continues. the police on guard, the streets sealed tight. >> and alex, on the scene in brussels at this hour. we understand four others also arrested in the raid. police now investigating how much help he had hiding. and whether any of the other suspects had a role in the paris attacks? >> reporter: that's right. there's no way abdeslam could have hid for four months without a significant support network. we understand three of them arrested with him today were from a single family. and this neighborhood has been under such a microscope, and still he was able to avoid capture for this long. david? >> alex, thanks.
back here at home this evening. a major storm set to hit this weekend. a nor'easter just as spring starts. already bringing severe weather to the rockies, the south, and gaining steam. moving up the coast. this hailstorm in mississippi, the windows of this truck blown out. a powerful blast of winter causing more than 100 accidents in denver. this fedex truck jackknifing on i-25. here's clayton sandell on the storm and where it's headed this weekend. >> reporter: tonight, winter is refusing to give way to spring. a snowstorm pounded colorado today, the giant flakes adding up. in boulder, more than 11 inches. streets and highways around denver clogged with crashes. even taking out this snowplow. thanks to the weather, a lot of cars look like this. there have been more than 50 crashes in the denver area already. by midday the number of wrecks doubled. in the south, another round of
hail. smashing windows thursday in dallas/ft. worth. snarling traffic in mississippi. and in louisiana, near shreveport, classic weather whiplash. >> it was hot this morning and now it's hailing. >> reporter: now, the system that brought all this snow here in denver and is now slamming the south is headed east. david? >> let's get right to rob. he has the latest track for this system. >> considering this time of year, a very strong, dynamic system. the low over central texas. severe thunderstorm watches, and then as it rolls across the boundary, gets over the midatlantic. by tomorrow, or by sunday at noontime, looking for rain, snow, d.c. to baltimore. and overnight, sunday into morning. monday morning, a mess from boston to new york. higher amounts, hartford to
boston, additional amounts there. how much snow do you think we'll get? an inch or so from d.c. to philly, lesser down i-95. i think we'll see some school closures, and it's the first day of spring, so it's a significant storm. >> i was going to say, spring this weekend? who knew. now to the air scares tonight. one on each side of the country. in the east, lightning striking a jet. rocking it and the passengers inside. and at l.a.x., the pilot calling in a drone. the cockpit saying it was a very close call, 200 feet. david kerley covers aviation. >> reporter: this is the storm over new york that passengers and the pilots saw. >> gonna give you a right turn real quick. >> we gotta do it now. >> reporter: suddenly, the american airlines commuter jet struck. >> there was a flash of light, and a big explosion, the plane dipped about 100 feet. >> and brickyard 4233, just got hit by lightning. >> roger, everything okay? >> yeah, don't send us through there again, it's pretty bad. >> reporter: the jet with 55 onboard from raleigh doesn't make it to laguardia, diverting instead to jfk, with what may be
marks of a lightning strike. >> poof. like out of nowhere. >> reporter: lightning strikes are not uncommon. jets are designed to handle up to 1 million volts. but for passengers, it can be frightening. late today, another scare. the plane was about 15 miles from l.a.x., when the pilot reports a drone passing above him. just 200 feet above the jetliner arriving from germany. the alert sent out to other pilots. >> we'll be looking for it. >> reporter: other pilots did report seeing balloons at about the same altitude at the same time. the jet landed safely. david? >> david, thanks. now to the race for the white house, donald trump under attack from all sides tonight. his personal information reportedly hacked, and a threat also sent to his son. and all of this as a growing
number of mainstream republicans organize against him. mitt romney with his newest strategy. here's tom llamas. >> reporter: tonight, donald trump fending off attacks from two very different forces -- the republican establishment and international hackers. >> greetings, citizens of the world. >> reporter: the fbi and secret service now investigating claims the hacker group anonymous posted trump's social security number and cell phone information. >> we are very serious about stopping any proposed fourth reich by the fascist donald trump. >> reporter: trump's son, eric, now also receiving threats. a letter containing suspicious white powder delivered to his new york apartment. the powder turning out to be harmless, but the letter, frightening. quote, "if your father does not drop out of the race, the next envelope won't be fake." and now in a closed-door meeting, conservative groups strategizing ways to deny trump the nomination. and some prominent republicans, like senator linsey graham, rallying around senator ted cruz. >> i think he is a republican conservative who i can support.
>> reporter: but it's a reluctant vote of support. listen to what graham said about cruz just three weeks ago. >> if you killed ted cruz on the floor of the senate, and the trial was in the senate, nobody could convict you. >> reporter: late today, mitt romney announcing that he will caucus for ted cruz in next week's utah primary. he's hoping enough people will vote for cruz to deny trump the delegates to win the nomination outright, forcing a contested convention. trump firing back on twitter, posting, "mitt romney is a mixed-up man who doesn't have a clue. no wonder he lost." >> the back and forth continues. tom llamas with us. tom, mitt romney, saying he's voting for cruz in utah, not because he's been a longtime cruz supporter, but because of his continuing strategy? >> reporter: that's right. romney wants to take as many votes as he can from donald trump. he says a vote for anyone other than cruz makes it extremely
likely that trumpism will prevail. david? >> tom, thanks. now to new hampshire, and a case that made national headlines back front and center tonight. the high school graduate, tried for sexual assault, now behind bars. convicted of luring an underage girl, but out on appeal, but a reporter spotted him on a train. now, a judge revoking his bail. here's gio benitez. >> i'm going to revoke bail -- >> reporter: tonight, owen labrie is behind bars, quickly whisked away in handcuffs after a judge ruled he violated his curfew. the now 20-year-old convicted last fall of misdemeanor sex assault on an underage schoolmate at st. paul's school. his victim testifying at trial. >> i was raped! >> reporter: labrie was acquitted of felony rape charges, but was convicted of luring an underage girl by computer, and was sentenced to a year in jail. he was out on bail pending appeal.
but last month, a reporter for "vice" spotted him on a train and began tweeting about their conversation. "he's in town visiting his girlfriend." that launched an investigation. >> your honor, he lied to the jury. he lied to your honor. and now he's been walking around, not only with his chin up, but with his nose up in the air snubbing your honor's court order. >> reporter: the defense arguing he was traveling to meet with lawyers and attend a lecture for his classes. >> so he chose, wrongly, your honor, admittedly, to try to fly under the radar. he's sorry. >> reporter: david, the judge said no matter the reason, labrie violated his bail and now could spend a year behind bars. david? >> gio, thanks. next to a drug scandal at a nuclear missile base in the u.s. 14 junior airmen under investigation for illegal drug activity while off duty. from the f.e. warren air force

[ laughter ] i don't know.
we'll have to ask him. >> didn't you know you were under surveillance? >> no, to be honest, i didn't think about it. i thought he knew what he was doing by texting me. if i knew i was being followed, i would have never gone down there. because it's a lot of risk. not only my life, but everybody's life. >> you thought you would get in and out, and no one would know? >> yes. >> later tonight, how this all unraveled. the dramatic story, diane sawyer's exclusive interview, on a special edition of "20/20." later tonight, 10:00 p.m. eastern right here. and much more still coming on "world news tonight." the dramatic explosion inside a bakery. incredibly, the baker survives. tonight, revealing how he survived the explosion. also, the fbi tonight with a warning for millions of american drivers. is your car vulnerable to a hacker who can take over control? and the simple tips. what to do with your car right now. and then the image so many were talking about today.
