6:02 am
again this morning. peter. >> you're exactly right, the community still really numb to what just happened in the last 24 hours. virginia beach has now been added to that growing list of american chunommunities shatter by gun violence. it happened here at this beautiful campus, colonial style building, the deadliest mass shooting in the country this year. just as workers were preparing to leave for the weekend, shots rang out at a virginia beach city office building friday afternoon. >> this is a horrific day for the commonwealth of virginia. >> the shooter a veteran government employee stormed into the building and opened fire, leaving at least 12 dead and four injured. >> he has access to the building, he came in with a weapon today. >> four police officers rushed the building, cornering the gunman during a shootout. >> even though he was involved in a long-term moving gun battle with these officers, when he

6:04 am
that gunman who turned his workplace into a scene of carnage yesterday died after a long shootout with police here, so what do we know about the gunman, and the gun that he used? for more on that, we're joined by nbc justice correspondent pete williams. he's in washington. pete, good morning. >> the man that law enforcement officials say carried out this attack, dewayne craddock was a project engineer for the site planning and engineering team for the office of public yout utilities in virginia beach. that was the offices that were in the building. the police chief described him as a long time employee of the city and said friday night that he was still employed when he began firing on his fellow employees, though other law enforcement officials say their understanding is that he was recently fired. investigators say craddock bought several guns within the past few weeks, and made the purchases legally, but police say that weapon he used friday, one of the most common in the u.s., the .45 caliber
6:05 am
semiautomatic handgun, which means it fired one shot each time the trigger was pulled was purchased legally. he had several high capacity magazines, these are the clips that hold the rounds and that allowed him to fire more shots before reloading. those magazines are legal in virginia as they are indeed in most of the 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. he had no apparent criminal record and his neighbors say ri records and his neighbors say they are shocked he would do such a thing. >> i'm petrified because i live right under him. that could have been me or my girlfriend or my roommate, and he seemed like a nice guy. he introduced himself when we first moved in. that's just crazy. >> police searched craddock's home searching for more information on what might have been the motive. the fbi and atf are helping
6:06 am
virginia police process the crime scene inside that city office building. peter. >> pete williams in washington for us this morning. pete, thank you very much. as we noted a police officer was among those injured in the awful shootout that took place here. he's in the hospital. but it's believed that his bullet proof vest may have saved his life. he is one of at least four people in hospitals across this community. hans nichols is in virginia beach general hospital with the latest on the condition of those survivors, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, pet peter. the indication is the four people who made it to the hospital have pulled through overnight. we heard that the latest official information is three critical and one in stable condition. the indications seem to be the one in stable or fair condition was the police officers who life was saved because he was wearing his bulletproof vest. they were clear on that.
6:07 am
officials indicated a lengthy shootout and the perpetrator of the crime did have multiple weapons at home and found on the site. we also have names of the 12 deceased. 11 of them are city employees. one of them was a contractor. we will learn more about the individuals. for example, one was a former military personnel. had a deployment. we will get more on these individuals and find out what happens next to the community in grief. >> much. sheinelle, as you can see it's become a horrifying and heartbreaking routine across this country. another deadly shooting here. the latest toll as we have reported now, 13 killed as a result of the actions that took place here just yesterday. >> thank you, peter. the gunman began his attack in the parking lot and moved through three floors of virginia beach municipal center before engaging officers in that extended shootout.
6:08 am
nbc law enforcement expert and former atf special agent jim kavanaugh joins us from nashville with more on the police response. good morning to you, jim. >> good morning, sheinelle. >> hans gave us an update on the injured officer but talk about how the law enforcement officers responded to this 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 fast ball hitting you in the chest, and it's going to be a lot of bruising and injury but luckily the officer is going to survive, thank god. they are absolute heroes because they use the formula where police tactics change post columbine, when shooter's motives change, that's all been left out of the discussion. shooter's motives change instead of a robbery or trying to get away or trying to take somebody hostage, they were mass killing so police tactics change, and here you have two detectives, two k-9 officers who went in, but sheinelle, this killer planned it, and had a
6:09 am
distinctive advantage with the silencer. he killed first in the parking lot, i mean, that should be noted by all, and if he did not have a silencer, that report of a .45 is extremely loud, and i would venture to say at a municipal complex, some police officer would have heard that shot, and maybe there was multiple shots in the parking lot and this silenced weapon allowed him to make entry, then once inside, even people in the building, sheinelle, if they didn't know it was a shooter, they were unclear, they heard something but they didn't know if it was close or far away. they had to investigate, and this gave him time, and of course he had extended magazines, sometimes those have as many as 30 rounds per magazine and he methodically goes through his killing sfrpre. the first two or three officers get there and quickly get in, you try not to go in yourself, if you get killed you can't help anybody. sometimes you have to.
6:10 am
but you try to get two or three. in this case they had four and they moved in quickly and engaged him in the gun battle. he has an advantage in the gun battle too, he has a silencer, the gun doesn't give the big flash, not much of a recoil, he can shoot a little more accurately, he can move little more quietly, the officers got him barricaded and were able to kill him. >> that's what made this such a deadly shooting, then, was it essentially that silencer and that muffler. >> three things made it extremely deadly, the silencer, one, because he wouldn't get noticed as quick and certainly from the parking lot inside. two these extended magazines, 30 round magazines, this guy can shoot and shoot and shoot, and when he's shooting unarmed people, he can go on. there's little chance to tackle him because he's got so many rounds and of course he's using a .45 caliber weapon. he knows the territory, he's not a stranger to the building. he knows the premises, he's choking on an empty grudge from his employment, so he can kill
6:11 am
at will. likely wanted to go on but officers were so fast, he knew, sheinelle, this killer knew that if he fired that gun without a silencer, the officers would have been on him even faster in that municipal center. so it was a diabolical plot, and you know, unfortunately, we even have a bill on the hill where they were trying to change the law on silencers, which has been very strict since 1934. and they've tried to repeal that. where we are in america on gun laws, it's a bad place for us. and we're trying to take away, for example, the registration of silencers. we need to keep that. >> spark a renewed conversation. jim kavanaugh, thank you your perspective this morning. let's check in at the white house for the reaction to the shooting in virginia beach. we have mike vicari, at the white house. >> a spokesperson said last night the president had been briefed on the shooting and is
6:12 am
monitoring the situation. as of this moment, 13 hours since the violence in virginia beach, we have not heard, read or seen a reaction from president trump to the latest mass shooting. he is here in the white house, the weather is clear, and he typically makes a trip to his northern virginia golf course on weekend days like this. tomorrow, sunday, the president and first lady are scheduled to attend the annual gala at ford's theater here in d.c., and later sunday night, they leave washington for the united kingdom, and a much anticipated state visit overseas. peter, sheinelle. >> thank you, mike. earlier this morning, peter spoke with the mother and daughter who were both nearby when the shooting began. leah wilson was inside the city building right next door to the shooting and her building was on lock down for nearly three hours. at the same time, her mother alyssa andrews was waiting for leah in the car while taking care of leah's 23-month-old son.
6:13 am
alyssa saw people running from the building where the shooting was happening, some of them covered in blood. peter started by asking alyssa what she saw and heard standing outside. >> reporter: alyssa, i'll start with you, you were in the car outside, we saw the photo you took of the man with blood on his chest. what did you hear, what did you see standing outside? >> at first i saw all the police with their guns running towards the building mind 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 and he had blood all over himself, and i opened my door, i had my grandson in the car, and i opened the door and said i'm an rn, do you need me to help you, the police officer said no, get back in your car, and i got back in the car and thought that was the safest place to be. >> reporter: and you started texting photos to your daughter who was inside, to be clear, you were paying off a driving ticket, you didn't work here, and all of a sudden you found
6:14 am
out there was an active shooter in the building from your mom, what did you make of this? >> at first, i didn't know if it was serious or not, and when she started getting frantic, i started panicking a little bit. it was all very traumatic and very quick. >> reporter: what was it like inside, how did you know? did you hear sounds, how did you know something was wrong? >> we heard loud commotion coming from the back window, especially in the back conference rooms and in the bathrooms and everyone was sort of running around like chickens with their heads cut off. >> how long were you in the building before you were able to come and reunite with your 23-month-old in the car. >> three hours, we were on lock down. we weren't allowed to go next to the windows or doors or anything like that. >> reporter: how are you all doing today? >> still, it's surreal. i didn't sleep last night very well at all. you know, i just feel so bad for the victims in this, but i
6:15 am
didn't realize we were so close to where the gunman was initially, and i didn't even know that people were killed until later on at night, you know, so it's devastating. >> it is. very traumatic. i'm still processing everything, still trying to get over what happened, trying to get through it. >> reporter: when you finally got out of that building and you saw your mom, and you saw your son, tell me about that moment for you. >> it was beautiful. my son ran straight to me. very emotional. i was just happy that everybody was safe. absolutely. >> and for you to have your daughter in your arms again. >> my honey bun, yes. it is. and our phones went dead, so i couldn't communicate with her, so i really was, you know, at a loss of if she was okay in the building, so i'm glad we had a happy ending. i'm sorry for the other people. >> reporter: we're so glad that both of you guys are okay.
6:16 am
we're sorry for your experience. thanks for spending time with us. >> thank you. >> reporter: as alyssa told me as soon as we were done speaking on camera, she said she and her daughter were driving back to their honestly in richmond yesterday evening. it was that moment they learned the death toll, how large it was, when they decided to stay in the area, sheinelle. so distraught about what happened here. so thankful about the fact that they were both saved. >> i was listening to them talk, once again, you have so many people's lives who are forever changed because of another mass shooting. >> reporter: yeah. >> thank you, peter, we'll check back in with you again throughout the morning rch. another big story, the latest on a flood emergency across multiple states. evacuations are underway right now in arkansas and missouri as rivers rise to historic levels in the wake of severe weather. gabe gutierrez is in the flood zone in arkansas. >> reporter: the president has declared a federal disaster in

6:19 am
can't get a break, and this is record flooding and it's such a sad situation, we have so many rivers that are at or above the major flood stage. we are dry right now. we also have some showers likely across the northeast, but it's really in that zone where we have to focus on the missouri river, the arkansas river and the mississippi river because we do have more than 300 rivers still above flood stage with several at major flooding, so any additional rainfall will just continue to cause this water to overflow its banks. we have this stalled front. you can see more showers and thunderstorms. heavier pockets of rain developing across the midwest, back through oklahoma, down into texas, too and if this moves east ward, it will bring storms across the great lakes tonight and tomorrow, bringing storms into the northeast. it will not take a lot of rain to continue this flooding problem, and we are looking at an additional 1 to 2 inches of rain. some of that rain coming in a very short period of time. flash flooding is also an issue on top of that. mostly west of us, the major flooding that we're seeing, but
