7:00 am
good morning, america. and breaking news, right now. massive shoot-out with automatic weapons leaves six police officers shot outside salt lake city overnight. one is now dead. the rest, in serious or critical condition at this hour. we'll have a live report. million-dollar man. rick santorum cashes in on his almost-win in iowa. raking in big bucks overnight. will that be enough to take down mitt romney in this week's new hampshire showdown? health scare. mariah carey refusing to leave her husband's, nick cannon's bedside, after he was hushed to the hospital with kidney failure on vacation. killer shot. a rare sight of orcas frolics off the coast. the stunning video of their romp in the open ocean, all caught on camera. why they're swimming south, so far from home.
7:01 am
problem is, i don't know where the orca's home is. >> very, very far. >> good morning, everyone. we have a lot going on this morning. political race, of course, heating up. all of the candidates in new hampshire right now. mitt romney has a huge lead there right now. he's got an endorsement from john mccain. but rick santorum has the momentum. will it be enough to overtake romney? we'll get into that in a little bit. >> and a little money in the bank account for santorum, as well. have you seen this? some stunning video. it just surfaced overnight. it appears to be casey anthony, speaking out. a video diary about her life since her acquittal. we'll get to that. >> it does look like her. a big announcement from the royal palace this morning. kate is stepping into a new role. raising new questions in comparison to princess diana. we'll get into that in a little
7:02 am
bit. and to josh elliott with the top stories. >> good morning to all of you. six police officers shot overnight in utah, while serving a warrant in the city of ogden, some 40 miling north of salt lake city. one officer has died. the other five officers very seriously wounded. abc's senior justice correspondent, pierre thomas, has been following the investigation. good morning to you, pierre. >> reporter: josh, it was like a war zone. officers were trying to serve a warrant to a home when gunfire erupted. as many as 40 shots being fired. when it was over, six officers had been hit. the suspect, who was also wounded, took off, trying to escape but didn't make it very far. he was cornered in a backyard shed. the officer who died was a father of two. a seven-year veteran on the force. five of his fellow officers are in the hospital with serious to critical injuries. this follows a deadly year in 2011. last year, officer fatalities were up 16%. police killed by guns jumped a
7:03 am
whopping 20%. why is this happening? josh, to be blunt, more suspects are simply willing to take on police. >> 2012, no better. pierre thomas, thank you for that. the other big story this morning. president obama and defense secretary leann panetta are proposing major cuts at the pentagon this morning. some $450 billion worth. that's roughly 8% of the pentagon's budget they hope to cut over the next decade. one way of achieving these cuts, trimming the ranks of the army by some 80,000 troops. high-tech weapons systems could be on the chopping block. this morning, four bombs went off in baghdad, including one attached to a motorcycle. at least 27 were killed. violence has seriously spiked since u.s. combat troops left iraq. and the man accused of terrorizing los angeles, setting dozens of arson fires, is on suicide watch this morning. harry burkhart appeared to be wrapped in a green blanket during his court hearing wednesday. the judge set bail there at just under $3 million, roughly the
7:04 am
same amount as the estimated damage caused by those fires over new year's weekend. and an unbelievable crash scene in fresno, california. a stolen car, landing on this roof, after the driver took a sharp turn too quickly, hit a tree stump and went airborne. the driver walked away. thankfully, no one else was hurt. and kodak is preparing to file for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. this according to "the wall street journal." the company is hoping to sell some of its patents to get the cash it needs to stay afloat. and a desperate scene off the coast of new zealand. a massive crack has opened on that cargo ship that struck a reef in october and has been listing ever since. it is all but certain that some 800 containers onboard will spill into the ocean. the most hazardous cargo has been offlifted. a bluefin tuna, just sold in
7:05 am
japan for a record $736,000. perhaps not surprisingly, it was bought by the owner of a sushi restaurant. tipping the scales at 593 pounds. dinner for the entire country of japan on that guy. >> each piece of sushi would be 25 bucks. >> i didn't know math would be a part of the job. we're going to turn, now, to politics. your voice, your vote. and all eyes, now, on new hampshire. the candidates are there. the negative ads are running. saturday's debate is coming. and the big question now, can rick santorum's surge give him the momentum he needs to stop mitt romney? john berman is in new hampshire. >> reporter: rick santorum says game on. this is where the big game is. new hampshire. overnight, rick santorum told me he intends to play this game hard, even though his main opponent, mitt romney, is playing with more expensive equipment.
7:06 am
overnight, the room was packed. the former senator was pumped. and the sweater vest was bursting with pride. rick santorum, painting himself as the defender against what he called the president's assault on liberty. >> he believes you are incapable of freedom. >> reporter: we asked santorum, is he capable of winning new hampshire? beating mitt romney, who has been miles ahead in the polls here. mitt romney has the money. he has endorsements. he has a house here. >> we have the grassroots. look at this. there's a lot of energy. we feel very, very good about things. >> reporter: he's also got new money. less than 24 hours, $1 million, after his iowa near-victory. and new scrutiny. >> my catholic faith teaches, it's actions that are the problems. not necessarily someone's feelings. >> reporter: meanwhile, mitt
7:07 am
romney was touting his new endorsement from his new best friend/old worst enemy, john mccain. >> do you think we can get more than an eight-vote margin here in new hampshire? i'm going to try. >> reporter: mccain, four years ago, labeled romney a flip-flopper. now says he's -- >> honest, straight-talking. person of knowledge and vision. >> reporter: it should be noted that romney's vision included kenny loggins "danger zone." fitting because romney seems to be riding into a political pig pile. ads from jon huntsman. >> one state can stop the camilhameleon chameleon. >> romney's plan, timid. >> reporter: but perhaps good for romney, it looks like he will have rick perry to kick around some more. the texasnor saying, he's staying in for now. >> i reassessed. we're headed to new hampshire. and then, to south carolina.
7:08 am
>> reporter: rick perry says the idea to stay in came to him while he was jogging. now, the big question for him is, does he see some path still to victory among conservative voters? the answer to that question and so many of the crucial questions, coming only in our abc news debate here saturday night. george? >> that's right. we'll see what he's going to do there. thanks, john. let's get analysis from abc's jake tapper in new hampshire this morning. let's talk about rick santorum. had that big finish in iowa. so many votes coming in the last couple days. raised $1 million overnight. like rick perry, he still has to construct a path to victory. maybe not in new hampshire. but beyond. >> reporter: that's right. his biggest challenge right now is to convince conservatives to consolidate around him. conservatives are hitting the panic button. they're having a retreat. conservative elites to discuss how do they consolidate the anti-romney vote for one candidate.
7:09 am
rick santorum, trying to convince them he's their candidate. but, george, when berman and i went to the meeting last night that santorum had, the town hall meeting, it was basically two hours of policy discussion by rick santorum. it was not an effective way for a candidate to get his message out in many different venues. so, it's still a very open question whether he's going to be able to rise to the occasion to run a national campaign. >> that's the question. he doesn't have the time to do what he did in iowa, which was visit one, two voters at a time in all 99 counties. you mention the conservatives trying to decide whether to coalesce around rick santorum. meanwhile, it seems that the republican establishment is beginning to close ranks behind romney. john mccain's endorsement yesterday, evidence number one. >> reporter: that's right. and of course, with mccain coming out and endorsing his one-time enemy, you have the establishment stamping on romney. and the obama campaign, still thinking romney is almost certainly going to be the nominee. after new hampshire, george, which is also a little
7:10 am
experiment in retail politics, this really becomes a resource game. who has the most money to compete in south carolina, florida, nevada going forward? right now, with those other three candidates, perry, santorum, gingrich, splitting the conservative vote, it's really just romney. he's the only one that can do this. look, there are already absentee ballots in florida that are being filed for that primary on january 31st. rick santorum didn't make the virginia ballot. not because he didn't file enough signatures. he didn't try to file enough signatures. he wasn't even in the game. that's the problem going forward for all these other non-romney candidates. >> we'll see how much of a money advantage romney has. the last fund-raising results will be released. as you point out, he's the only one advertising in all of the states, coming up, south carolina and florida. that's a key advantage for mitt romney right now. we'll see how the other candidates take off on him saturday night at the debate. jake tapper, thanks very much. diane and i will be joining
7:11 am
our new hampshire team this weekend, moderating the gop debate, saturday night, at 9:00, 6:00 pacific. and then? >> then, on sunday morning, i'll be on "this week" to discuss the debate. >> this is your home, too. >> we did a show from there. had a big, live crowd. we'll do the same thing on sunday. now, to a controversial police shooting at a texas middle school. an officer shot and killed an eighth grader armed with a pellet gun that authorities said looked like the real thing. but the boy's family says it didn't have to end that way. abc's ryan owens joins us from dallas with much more on this. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: good morning to you, robin. you know, these pellet guns are made to look like the real deal. and they do. these sort of mixups have happened before. but this really is different. a 15-year-old -- a standoff with a 15-year-old at school, as other students cowered in their classrooms.
7:12 am
when police arrived at this brownsville, texas, middle school, they found 15-year-old jaime gonzalez, seen here in a facebook tribute page, standing in the hallway near the front office. a gun in his hand. >> subject, 5'7", holding a handgun, black in color. white shoes, blue jeans. >> where is he? >> by the front door. >> reporter: officials put the school in lockdown. and tried to get the eighth grader to drop the weapon. >> get everybody out. >> reporter: instead, officers said the teen pointed it at them. forcing them to make a split-second decision. >> take him out. take him out. >> shots fired. >> e.m.s. >> copy. >> reporter: gonzalez was hit twice. once in the head. >> imminent threat of death to the officers or others is the threshold in whether to use deadly force. >> reporter: police later discovered that pistol fired pellets, not bullets.
7:13 am
cops say it looked identical to the real thing. and they insist they acted appropriately. >> we commend the actions taken by all those involved. fortunately, nobody else was hurt in this incident. that's what we're grateful for. >> reporter: but many here, including the young man's parents, say officers acted too quickly. >> they overreacted. i understand, it looked like a gun. but i mean, like, shooting him three times. that's unnecessary. he was a child, my child. that i don't have anymore. >> reporter: school will be back in session down in brownsville this morning. but classes will be held in a different building. that middle school, robin, is still considered a crime scene. >> it is. all right, ryan. thank you. so difficult down there. we have a wake-up call for everyone right now. starting your day may be about to get a little more expensive. prices on everything from your breakfast to your morning commute, going up. abc's weekend anchor, bianna golodryga, joins us with more on
7:14 am
that. >> not great news. these numbers really do add up. good morning, robin. if your resolution for the new year was to save more money, good luck. after an 11% spike in food prices last year, economists are forecasting even more sticker shock in 2012. from the moment you get out of bed. the price of just about everything you fuel up on. from gasoline, to caffeine, to breakfast, is going up. hop in your car for a trip to the pump. this morning, that will cost you 20 cents more per gallon than it did last year. by summer, it can go all the way up to $5 per gallon. you can expect another jolt with your morning coffee. and not from the caffeine. you could soon be paying another 10 cents or more for that coffee or latte. starbucks announced it is rising prices by as much as 1%, in places like new york, atlanta and dallas. you will have to fork up more
7:15 am
money at your breakfast joint. on wednesday, denny's announced it is looking to hike up its menu prices. and it could be by as much as 5%. that grand slam breakfast that normally costs you 6 bucks, could slam you with another 30 cents on your bill. it might not seem like much. but add it all up, and you're spending another $218 a year. >> the steady increase in prices comes at a time when incomes aren't growing. and it's squeezing people's buying power. >> reporter: think you can save money by eating in? not so fast. this week's freeze has raised the price of staples like tomatoes and oranges. that's already with a forecast predicting a 2% jump in food prices this year. >> if consumers can't shift back, this gives businesses a lot of cover to raise prices. >> reporter: you can expect to see more companies raise prices this year. not just on food. the price of items on your desktop computer to your digital camera are expected to rise.
7:16 am
components to transportation costs. rising prices aren't unusual. but the fact that so many americans don't have work and their wages aren't increasing is really tough. >> those holiday sales have to end at some point. time, now, for the weather and meteorologist ginger zee, inside. a few people braving the cold. but you are right here. i don't blame you at all. >> we're inside because we're warming right now. temperatures have been rising overnight. makes sense. so, the upper 20s is where we start in new york city this morning. but look at the record heat. anywhere west of the mississippi. kansas city could see a record today. denver could see a record. rapid city, south dakota, will likely break a record. and l.a., for the fifth day, going to see record highs. really intense heat out there. and it is going to move east. this is the last morning that you wake up with frost in florida. look at the frost and freeze warnings. i'll leave you with an outlook.
7:17 am
7:18 am
>> some welcome rain from brownsville to corpus christi today. and we'll be talking about just how much we warm up going into the weekend in the northeast in a couple minutes. george? >> that's good news. let's go overseas where princess kate is taking on a new high-profile role before a big birthday. she is announcing the charities she will support. nick watt has that from london. and, nick, this is where princess diana made her mark. >> reporter: absolutely, george. and from right now, kate is a fully-fledged working member of the royal family. as we saw from diana, it involves looking good, shaking hands. and most importantly, it involves charity. and kate, who has been learning the ropes at her husband's side, has just chosen the charities she'll bless with her royal patronage. she will begin work immediately with a group of children's hospices, a charity that fights addiction, and an arts education
7:19 am
charity. >> a combination of what we do here, art and therapy, is something that seemed to really attract her. she's charming. absolutely charming. and we're thrilled. >> from this day on, now that she's got good causes, she can really get her teeth into that and define herself as not just the woman next to prince william. but actually someone that stands for something. >> reporter: a year ago, royal aides would flinch at the obvious diana/kate comparisons. the couple addressed that elephant in the room. >> obviously, i would are have loved to have met her. she's an inspirational woman to look up to. >> no one's trying to fill my mother's shoes. what she did was fantastic. it's about making her own future and destiny. and kate will do a good job of that. >> reporter: and so far, she has. the royal entourage isn't worried anymore about the diana comparisons because, well, kate's a natural. >> she's going to be as big as diana. diana did so much to promote charities and good causes. that was one of the greatest
7:20 am
things she achieved in her life. i feel comfortable with kate taking on that mantle. >> reporter: kate will also work with britain's national portrait gallery and muck in with the boy scouts near her home in wales, which is something to do while her husband is off saving sailors. the big milestone for kate, she turns 30 on monday. even princesses have to get older. but, guys, she doesn't want any presents. she wants people to donate to those charities that she is now supporting. >> very honorable. coming up, the intriguing video that surfaced overnight. it appears to be casey anthony speaking out. a video diary for the first time about her life. and new details in the chilling pilot murder mystery that left four people dead, including two navy fighter pilots. a witness speaking out about what he saw that night. and far, far, far from home. and maybe showing off a little bit. the new and unforgettable pictures of orcas romping off [ wo

things are starting to look up. and things are starting to change in a good way. hopefully things stay good and they only get better. >> wow. that appears to be casey anthony, video diary. speaking out for the first time since walking out of court after her acquittal. we're going to take a closer look at that in a minute. how did it get on the internet? what does it mean? what did she say? >> she altered her appearance. but that very much appeared to be casey anthony. and there's new details emerging in the murder mystery that left four people dead, including two navy fighter pilots. now, a witness who was with the victims is speaking out about that night. >> andrea canning has that. and look at these orcas.
7:31 am
swimming away from home. showing off. we cannot wait to show you. now, let's get to that video diary popping up overnight online. it looks like casey anthony talking there. no one has seen or heard from her since her acquittal. and abc's rob nelson has much more. >> this is my first video diary. >> reporter: this could be the first look we've had of casey anthony since she left that florida courthouse. she was acquitted of murder on july 5th of last year, just five months of the third anniversary of her daughter, caylee's, death. but now, she's in seclusion, talking about her life. >> not a lot going on except this. i'm extremely excited. i'm extremely excited that i'll be able to write. obviously, keep a video log. take some pictures. and i have something that i can
7:32 am
finally call mine. >> reporter: this video has been circulating recently on the web. but it's still not clear who put it there or exactly where casey is. she's learning a new way to communicate with the outside world, while also hiding from prying eyes. >> been a long time since i've been able to call something mine. and now, i have something even, you know, it's silly to say. but i have a computer and a camera and a phone. >> reporter: casey longs for something, not just to call her own, but for a companion, as well. >> this is a blessing in so many ways. and now, i have someone to talk to. i'm by myself. so, i'm not bothering the poor dog. the one i've adopted. i love. and he's as much my dog as any of the over pets i had. >> reporter: casey also talks about when she will be free. >> it will be a while before i leave. i'll be here for many, many months before.
7:33 am
even if i'm here for six months, even if i get off probation early. i'll still be here at least until february. the end of february. seven months. march, my birthday. just, either way. you know, whether six months, or a year from now, or a year from the middle of august. i don't know. >> reporter: for "good morning america," rob nelson, abc news, new york. let's bring in our "gma" legal analyst, dan abrams. you were picking up on some things she was saying there, dan. >> about the probation. she says even if i get off my probation early, i still will be here. she almost is talking as if she's in jail there, wherever she is. we don't know exactly where she is. but it's a very odd thing to say, as if she's got a specific place she has to stay for a certain amount of time, regardless of what happens with
7:34 am
her probation. >> and many people have forgot that. she is on probation. >> she has a one-year probation, for check fraud. she can stay in orange county. she gets permission from her probation officer. there's other requirements and restrictions. but she's allowed to live her life. but that leads to questions of what is she talking about with regard of staying. >> we don't know all of the details. if she released it or someone else released it. you put yourself on camera, chances are it's going to show up somewhere. and this would be the first time, in this manner, we hear from her. >> what would be the point of disguising your identity? changing hair color, glasses, et cetera, if you're going to release the video. that would seem to indicate she didn't release it. on one of the youtube areas where it is, there's a very derogatory phrase used at the top in linking to this video, which makes you think, well, that certainly didn't come from
7:35 am
her. but as the first video diary, you never know. we simply don't know how it came to be on the internet. did someone leak it? did she leak it? we don't know. >> there's a civil suit pending. she does not have to be there for that. could this be used, in some way, against her? >> it could. for now, she's not being forced to testify in the civil case. but she will, eventually, be forced to testify. her criminal trial is over. once her criminal appeal is finishes, she has no right against self-incrimination anymore. and she would have to testify, the same way o.j. simpson did in his civil case. >> all right, dan. thank you. >> that's a curious one. now, to the new details on the new year's day shooting that left four people dead in california, including two navy pilots. autopsies confirmed three of the victims were murdered. and the fourth, an apparent suicide. and we're learning how it all unfolded. this is a really chilly story.
7:36 am
>> reporter: much more information emerging. an unnamed man has come forward to say he was with the victims that night, standing outside the condo when the shots were first fired. he's giving police a play-by-play account of what he says happened. police aren't naming the man who survived a violent shooting in the coronado, california, condominium. saying only he was responsible for calling for help. >> there was another series of gunshots. the other individual who was remaining outside at that point called 911. >> reporter: investigators say the man didn't witness the shooting. but may help provide a timeline of the hours leading up to the murders. detectives know navy f-18 fighter pilots, david reis and bob reeves, along with reis' sister, karen, went to a party at this nightclub on new year's eve, where they met up with matthew satterly, an analyst. a little after 2:00 a.m., david
7:37 am
reis and the unnamed survivor were outside talking. the other three were inside. moments later -- >> gunshots start. bang, bang. bang, bang, bang, bang. and about a five-minute point between the first two and the last four. >> reporter: police then ran outside. the friend, still outside, ran to call 911. >> at this point, we have no eyewitnesses as to what happened inside that residence. we don't know what the motive was. >> reporter: 25-year-old david reis was shot in the torso. his sister, karen, in the chest and head. satterly was hit multiple times. police say bob reeves committed suicide. >> we don't know who committed the homicides. we'll know that once we get all of the forensic evidence. >> reporter: late wednesday, the bodies of karen and david reis were moved to their hometown, together. >> it was the family's wish they be together at all times because they were almost inseparable. >> reporter: satterly, a 31-year-old father, filed for
7:38 am
divorce just four days before his death. his wife, alana, said the couple was working on the marriage. >> matthew was the most kind, wonderful man and best friend and father. he was incredible. >> reporter: friends and family are wondering how three, promising, young lives could end so violently. and why lieutenant reeves, among the best pilots in the country, could have taken his own life. >> it's rare to see a case, a story like this, among friends. and people who are successful, who don't expect to be involved in murder. they don't expect to live with the consequences, either, which is why a murder is followed by a suicide. >> reporter: police say they found four guns inside the condo. but as you heard, no word on a possible motive in the case. services for david and karen reis will be this weekend, open to the public in bakersfield. yesterday, we reported that
7:39 am
karen was dating the pilot that committed suicide. that was not the case, only adding to the mystery. let's get some weather and ginger zee. >> good morning, everyone. we want to talk about surface advisories in effect. with the heat in l.a., it happened yesterday. and again in hawaii. look at the video from our affiliate kitv. this is the north shore of oahu. one surfer had to be rescued. let's go to the movement in the east. watch the warm air. spring-like temperatures coming by the weekend. a lot of yeahs in the studio. >> this weather report has been brought to you by staples. george? >> thank you, ginger.
