"early today" starts right now. good tuesday morning. i'm phillip mena. >> and i'm marlie hall. we begin with breaking news out of chicago. four people including an officer are dead after a gunman opened fire at mercy hospital on the city's south side. police say the gunman confronted his girlfriend over their broken engagement, then shot her several times. the gunman then exchanged fire with police, fleeing inside the hospital. that's when chaos erupted with patients and hospital staff scrambling for safety. nbc's dan scheneman has more. >> reporter: the first shots were fired around 3:30 local time near mercy hospital on chicago's south side. >> more shots fired. >> they have the pharmacy barricaded. ten shots so far from inside. >> reporter: police say a man and woman who were in a domestic relationship began to argue. the woman, who worked at the
hospital, was shot. >> and the gentleman turned around and shot three times in her chest. then once she fell to the ground, he stooshot her three m >> reporter: police say the gunman then opened fire on officers as they arrived at the scene. the gunman ran into the hospital a fired inside. >> during the exchange of gunfire in the hospital, one other female staff member was struck by gunfire fatally. during that exchange, one of our officers that responded was also fatally wounded by the offender. during the gunfire, the offender was also fatally wounded. it's unclear right now whether it's by police gunfirer it was self-inflicted wound. >> reporter: the fallen officer has been identified as samuel jimenez. he'd just finished his probationary period. the mayor said this tore at the
city's soul. >> reporter: the city of chicago lost a doctor, a pharmaceutical assistant, and a police officer, all going about their day, all doing what they love. >> reporter: the shooting has stopped. the hospital is now secure, but questions about what happened and why remain. dan scheneman, nbc news. we're also following a shooting in downtown denver where a gunman left one person dead and four others injured. streets were closed last night as police searched for the suspect. this happened just a few blocks from coors field, the home of the colorado rockies baseball team. the victims have been hospitalized for their wounds but are expected to investigatia motive and whether anyone else was involved. president trump is expecting a full report from the cia today on the murder of saudi journalist jamal khashoggi. the president has continued to
cast doubt on the saudi crown prince's involvement in the death of the "washington post" columnist and criticism from inside saudi arabia seems increasingly unlikely. king salman ignored the growing firestorm during his annual speech monday and praised his son for his modernization efforts. for the latest, let's get to nbc's sarah harman in london. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. the president is facing a choice today between his ally and the evidence. the cia and some senior republican lawmakers have all pointed the finger at the saudi crown prince. the saudis firmly deny that he was involved in khashoggi's murder. president trump, after refusing to listen to an audio recording of that murder, seems to be giving his ally the benefit of the doubt, saying he'll wait for that report that you mentioned to be released today. a big question now with the g20 in argentina just around the corner is whether the saudi crown prince is going to attend. saudi media outlets have been
saying he will. on the one hand, the saudi crown prince is a key u.s. ally. his country buys a lot of american weapons and has vast oil reserves. the trump administration, particularly jared kushner, has man that to the crown prince. many people, including the cia, believe ordered the brutal murder of ahim. so, guys, we are allmaie, phill. >> sarah, thank you. senior adviser to the president and also daughter to the president ivanka trump is facing an e-mail scandal of her own. "the washington post" reports ivanka sent hundreds of e-mails last year to white house aides and cabinet officials using her personal account in violation of federal records rules. that's according to people familiar with the white house examination of her correspondence. her father, president trump, hammered away at hillary clinton for the same thing on the campaign trail in 2016. >> 33,000 e-mails are missing, and they say, oh, she's fine.
she's fine. crooked hillary clinton, oh, she's crooked, folks. she's crooked as a $3 bill. lock her up is right. >> as you can imagine, it is causing quite a controversy. let's get to nbc's tracie potts in d.c. ivanka trump will now likely face an investigation once the democrats take over the house, is that right? >> reporter: it's certainly possible, phillip. "the washington post" is reporting that the sheer volume of these e-mails surprised aides who were looking into them as they were trying to fill a public records request, part of a lawsuit. according to the post and people familiar with what's happened here say that ivanka trump claimed that she didn't know what the rules were and that early on she did use this personal account before she had a white house account that was available for her use. the white house ethics office, which is where all of the calls were referred to on this, said that there was no classified information. keep in mind that's the same
thing hillary clinton said about her e-mails when she was being criticized. and the white house also pointing out that she did not have a private server in her home as the clintons did. now, as we're following that, we're also looking at new information obtained overnight about a judge's order on what's happening down at the border. a federal judge in san francisco has said that the trump administration cannot block people, migrants, from requesting asylum if they enter the u.s. illegally. in other words, not at one of the official ports of entry. thousands of people from those migrant caravans have started to pile up at the border. some of the official ports of entry, at least one was closed as troops were down there installing barriers. but now word that those troops will start coming home this week. all of them home before christmas because the military says their work there is done just as these migrant caravans begin to arrive and president
trump gets criticism for sending those troops down to the border before the election, some say, as an election ploy. now that they're coming home with the migrants just arriving. >> theim curious. tracie, thank you. president trump is facing growing backlash for his attacks against an american hero. the president doubled down on his criticism against retired admiral william mcraven, who oversaw the raid on osama bin laden. in a tweet, mr. trump said, we should have captured osama bin laden long before we did, and that president clinton famously missed his shot. that echoed similar comments he made during an interview on fox news sunday. >> bill mcraven, retired admiral, navy s.e.a.l., 37 years, former head of u.s. special operations. >> hillary clinton fan. >> special operations -- >> excuse me. hillary clinton fan. >> who led the operations, commanded the operations that took down saddam hussein and that killed osama bin laden says that your sentiment is the greatest threat to democracy in his lifetime. >> okay.
he's a hillary clinton backer and an obama backer, and frankly -- >> he was a navy seal 37 year. >> wouldn't it have been nice if we got osama bin laden a lot sooner than that? >> mr. trump's criticism comes after mcraven said, quote, the president's attack on the media is the greatest threat to our democracy in my lifetime. mcraven says he stands by the comment and that he did not back hillary clinton or anyone else. a teenage race car driver is recovering this morning after surviving a horrifying crash all caught on camera. nbc's gabe gutierrez has the dramatic details. >> reporter: if you blink, you might miss it. this race car going airborne and slamming into a track fence. here it is slowed down. the driver loses control, flying above other cars before landing in a tangled mess. it happened so fast, onlookers at the formula 3 grand prix near hong kong don't seem to realize what happened at first. then horror as emergency crews rush in, trying to save the
17-year-old driver. incredibly she survived. experts say that's because the car hit the soft wall and not the concrete barrier below it. sofia flores from germany was hospitalized with a spinal fracture. she tweeted just wanted to let everybody know that i'm fine and will be going into surgery. there's word the seven-hour procedure was successful. racing fans around the world stunned but grateful that this terrifying crash didn't end up much worse. gabe gutierrez, nbc news. outside of sacramento, more wild weather is getting ready to bear down on an already wary northern california. forecasters are predicting heavy precipitation with up to five inches of rain, this pronlting concerns of potentially deadly and destructive mudslides. for now rescuers race against time, sifting through the wreckage from the massive camp fire as 1 th,000 people remain unaccounted for. >> there are a lot of people
that want some answers. they are depending on us to find their loved one. >> cal fire says the camp fire has now grown to over 151,000 acres. bill karins is here. what else can we expect for this week? >> it's going to be the big storm as we head through the travel period. they need the rainfall to clean the air out in areas of the west. obviously it doesn't help with any of the search there. as far as the weather concerns today, a little bit of snow from albany all the way through southern portions of maine. the real big story is going to be the windchills behind this storm. right now the windchill is about 11 and 10 from minneapolis to bismarck. as we go through thanksgiving morning, it is going to be as cold as it gets in areas of the northeast. look at new york city. windchill of 7. that's unheard of.
