this is the "cbs evening news" with jeff glor. >> glor: and this is our western edition. it was a very busy day in washington with the president's lawyer weighing in about the possibility of an indictment and the revelation in the president's financial disclosure. we will get to that in just a moment, but we begin here tonight with what could have been another school massacre, if not for the heroic actions of a police officer. it happened in illinois at a high school whose alumni include president ronald reagan. adriana diaz is there. >> reporter: just after 8:00 a.m., shots rang out at dixon high school, near the gym where the senior class was for graduation rehearsal. >> it was chaos. it was complete chaos. i wasn't really looking behind me. i just took off running, and there were people pushing and shoving, screaming, trying to get out. >> reporter: police say the shooter was a 19-year-old former student. the school resource officer, identified as mark dallas, ran
5:32 pm
toward the shooter outside the gym. >> with shots ringing out through the hallways of the school, he charged towards the suspect and confronted him head on. because of his heroic actions, countless lives were saved. we are forever indebted to him for his service and his bravery. >> reporter: officer dallas chased the suspect outside. officials are hailing him as a hero who may have prevented yet another mass shooting. >> while pursuing the suspect, the suspect shot several rounds towards the officer, at which time the officer returned fire and struck the suspect. >> reporter: sources say the suspect is matt milby. who's in custody with nonlife- threatening injuries. after the school was put on lockdown, all students were reunited with their parents. milby's mother says her son was ostracized at school after getting in trouble for drugs. >> not at all. there's no justification for what he's done, and he will take full responsibility for that. >> glor: all right, adriana is in dixon, illinois tonight. adriana, anything else you can tell us about the suspect here. >> reporter: well, jeff, he was reportedly expelled from dixon
5:33 pm
high and was attending an alternative school. rtudents who knew him here, say he was smart and friendly, but sometimes erratic. sources say he was shot in the shoulder, but is sitting up and talking at the hospital. >> glor: adriana diaz leading us off tonight. adriana, thank you. we move now to washington where the president today released his financial disclosure. read between the lines, and you'll find him reimbursing his then-personal lawyer to pay stormy daniels. on another matter, his new personal lawyer says the special counsel's office will not indict the president in the russia investigation. more on all this from paula reid. >> reporter: on the same page as the president's bold signature is a reference to the previously undisclosed payment to mr. cohen. it's the first time president trump has formally admitted reimbursing his personal attorney, michael cohen, for the $130,000 he paid adult film star stormy daniels to keep silent about her alleged affair with the president. mr. trump has previously denied knowledge of the payment, including last month aboard air force one.
5:34 pm
>> reporter: however, earlier this month, the president's new iutorney, rudy giuliani, told fox news the president paid cohen back. >> having something to do with paying some stormy daniels woman $130,000, i mean, which is going to turn out to be perfectly legal. that money was not campaign money. sorry, i'm giving you a fact now asat you don't know. it's not campaign money. no campaign finance violation. >> reporter: along with the financial disclosure form, the office of government ethics today sent a letter to deputy attorney general rod rosenstein pdagging the update in case it was relevant to any inquiry the justice department may be parsuing. what is the significance of this letter? >> to me, that means that the government of office ethics delieves there's a potential crime here and it really should be investigated. >> reporter: sources say the justice department could be looking at whether the president made false statements, or
5:35 pm
whether those payments to daniels should have been disclosed under campaign finance laws, but there's "no" evidence there is currently an active investigation into the president on this matter. >> glor: paula, you did speak today with rudy giuliani. he says the special counsel's office told him it "cannot" indict a sitting president. talk more about that. >> reporter: well, that's piignificant" because there is currently an opinion at the justice department that says you cannot criminally indict a sitting president. sitting president. and giuliani said that mueller has told him that he will abide by that opinion, and mueller's boss, the deputy attorney general, rod rosenstein, has publicly said he will also abide by that opinion. so some good news for the president. >> glor: paula reid with the latest on a couple of different stories tonight. paula, thanks. cae senate intelligence committee, eight republicans and seven democrats, concluded today that russia meddled in the 2016 election, partly with the goal of electing donald trump. the bipartisan report is at odds with the findings of house republicans. here is nancy cordes with more on this.
5:36 pm
>> reporter: two committees, both led by republicans, have now come to very different conclusions. in a bipartisan announcement, the senate intelligence committee said today that after 14 months reviewing the sources, o adecraft, and analytic work, we see no reason to dispute the conclusions of the u.s. intelligence community from 2016. senator mark warner is the committee's top democrat. >> russians massively intervened in our elections. to the purpose of helping mr. trump and hurting hillary clinton. >> reporter: contrast that with the "more-partisan" report released last month by republicans on the house intelligence committee. they drew praise from president trump for concluding that russia's sole intent in 2016 was to undermine the u.s. electoral process. a third committee released transcripts today that underscored donald trump, jr.'s keen interest in russian dirt on hillary clinton back in 2016.
5:37 pm
er his closed-door interview with the senate judiciary committee last year, he said, "i agreed to listen, and i was willing to listen" to atformation about clinton at his now-infamous meeting with a russian lawyer at trump tower. ons comments contradict his original claim that the meeting was about russian adoptions. connecticut democrat richard blumenthal: >> my impression from watching donald trump, jr. in that meeting is that he evaded and contradicted himself in many of his answers. et reporter: the transcripts s.ow that another participant in that trump tower meeting says tat the president's son-in-law, jared kushner, got "infuriated" when the russian lawyer failed to produce the promised dirt. kushner has testified in the , st, jeff, that he quickly determined that the meeting was a waste of his time and left. >> glor: nancy cordes on capitol hill. nancy, thanks. the mother of ten children who were rescued from a house of horrors in fairfield,
