about a few knots. >> reporter: ntsb chair deborah hersman says the two recorders also indicate the cockpit crew had no indication anything was wrong until seconds before the crash. >> a call from one of the crew members to increase speed was made approximately seven seconds prior to impact. >> reporter: at four seconds prior to the crash, the cockpit crew is alerted they are approaching a stall. and then, just 1.5 seconds before impact, the crew discusses doing a go around. in other words aborting the landing. >> that means they want to not land but apply power and go around and try to land again. that call came 1.5 seconds before impact. >> reporter: the ntsb says in the days ahead, they hope to do some more inspection both on the runway and on the plane itself. and they hope to speak with the pilots within the next few

inside the car 44-year-old chaka grayson drove off and ditched the car in this parking lot on the 200 block of drake avenue. >> this all came about as a result of one of our officers was attempting to conduct an enforceable stop this afternoon. during the course of that process, the officer found himself in a defensive posture. and fired a number of shots at the suspect in his defense. >> reporter: witnesses say grayson was shot multiple times and was bleeding when he ran away. investigators say the deputy knew grayson from prior run-ins and knew he was driving on a suspended license. this woman saw the shooting. >> the officer made a u-turn behind me. proceeded to get on that tan buick regal and get behind that tan regal and pull it up on the side and hopped out with his gun in hand and proceeded to say stop. or i'll shoot. don't drive or i'll shoot. excuse me. don't drive or i'll shoot. the gentleman looked at him and thought about it and then proceeds today drive off. when -- proceeded to drive off. when he started the drive the
