he looked a little disoriented. quite dramatic. late morning yesterday. >> and if you were in the new york area yesterday you likely saw this alert on your phone monday morning. millions of people got the suspect's name and age sent right to their devices, the first time the alert system was used for something like this. >> appears it was quite effective. amy robach is on the scene where the suspect was caught hours after that alert went out in linden, new jersey. good morning, amy. >> reporter: good morning, robin. yes, it all went down behind me. rahami was found sleeping inside a hallway in that brick building there behind me. a concerned citizen called police, they quickly responded, never expecting to ultimately find and capture the most wanted man in america. ahmad khan rahami taken into custody after more than 48 hours of terror. >> that's the terrorist. man, this is crazy. >> reporter: bystanders capturing the moment gunfire erupts as police confront the suspect in linden, new jersey.
>> it had to be around 15, 20 shots. >> there's a guy shooting a gun. >> reporter: video shows him fleeing on foot, a police squad car nearly ramming him, he makes a run for it gun in hand. >> he began to engage them and they returned fire and no miracle no innocent civilians were hit thank god but took a while to capture him. >> reporter: the sweeping manhunt started around 8 a.m. monday morning after authorities pinpointed rahami as the suspected bomber who planted several bombs in new york and new jersey. >> they just released his information. this is the suspect that's been wanted in the new york city and seaside bombing. >> reporter: obtained by wcvs pulling a suitcase authorities believe contained one of those pressure cooker many bos. it began at 10:30 when the owner of this local bar spotted a suspicious man sleeping in his doorway. shortly before that rahami seen on surveillance camera at this local gas station. responding officers immediately recognized the bearded man as
rahami. >> the gun toward his left side and presuming the cops said show me your hands. >> reporter: angel padill and peter hammer wounded in the shoot-out. >> it's commendable. i'm proud of him. he's the reason i'm a police officer myself. >> reporter: rahami shot several times. his arm and leg bandaged. >> the bomb suspect right there. look at him. >> reporter: 90 minutes after the shoot-out began, the suspect detained rushed to university hospital in newark where he underwent surgery. right now rahami is being held on $5.2 million bail. he is only charged in connection with the shoot-out that happened yesterday but, of course, more charges expected to be filed in connection with the bombings and word is he is not cooperating with police. guys, even refusing to give his name at this hour. back to you. >> we'll see if that changes over time. thanks very much. more on rahami's past from our chief investigative correspondent brian ross. his travels overseas, a real focus of the investigation. >> reporter: that's right.
good morning. u.s. officials are pressing for more information about that mysterious year-long foreign trip rahami took two years ago to pakistan and afghanistan and whether that was the turning point for a young man who friends said spent most of his time talking about cars, supports and girls at one time of as a teenager he attended high school at edison high school where he graduated in 2007 remembered as a clean-cut kid. shocked classmates took to facebook to express their outrage recalling this picture of him and good times at a high school pool party. >> someone shared that on facebook, tagged it and said i can't believe i used to be friends with this guy. >> reporter: as a senior classmates say he actually became a father. >> ahmad had a girlfriend who became pregnant who was far along in her pregnancy at the prom. >> reporter: after a year of junior college, rahami endedup working at the family restaurant, first american fried chicken. five years ago his family sued
the city of elizabeth, new jersey, claiming discrimination against must lips because the city imposed a 10:00 closing time. >> we had some code enforcement problems and noise complaints. >> reporter: rahami appears to have longed for his family roots with several trips to afghanistan and pakistan. in april 2013, officials say he traveled to quetta, pakistan, a known hotbed of extremism then traveled on to afghanistan, not returning to the u.s. until almost a year later in march 2014. causing u.s. officials to question him on his return. >> they're going to look at where he said he went, does it match? or did he go off to some rogue mosque or hook up with somebody that could have trained him to become a terrorist? >> reporter: officials say he claimed he was visiting pakistan to see a wife there who he tried but failed to bring back into the country. and officials this morning tell abc news a number of his relatives remain in pakistan,
afghan refugees and that his mother left the country here in the u.s., left the u.s. just three weeks ago and has not returned since. >> they think that the bombs are sfris indicated enough he might have had training. >> two different kinds of bombs he used at least. >> we'll talk more about that. for more let's turn to abc's senior justice correspondent pierre thomas and former police commissioner ray kelly in the studio with us. pierre, what are your sources telling you about the investigation where it stands? what's the latest. >> reporter: sources are telling me the focus is on the last six months to a year of rahami's life. who was he talking to and associating with? they're searching through phones and computers tied to him to examine his social media footprint trying to determine whether he was radicalized by isis or al qaeda. some sources suspect he got his bombmaking design from a deadly cookbook posted on al qaeda's inspired magazine and trying to trace his travel during that 2013 trip to afghanistan and pakistan. they want to know who he made contact with there and that trip was long ago but officials are
leaving no stone unturned. every aspect of his life is being dissected. >> another question they're asking did he get any help? anybody else involved with these bombings? >> reporter: the official word right now is no evidence of a terror cell supporting him but my sources emphasize it's so early in the investigation, they need to know a lot more about this man and they need to know if there's somebody else out there who knew what he was planning to do. >> all right, pierre, thank you. >> ray, what can you tell us about what law enforcement is focusing on about the bombs. >> well, lots of questions on the part of law enforcement as was said accomplices is what it's all about right now, whether there are family members involved. the bombs themselves were fairly basic but there were two different types of bombs. there was the pipe bombs using black powder and pressure cooker bombs using what's called tannerite. where did he get those materials and where did he bill the bomb? wires were found in the apartment, i'm told, yesterday so these are questions that will be asked by investigators as
soon as this individual will, if he doesn't cooperate they can't get it from him i was going to say but they'll ask his family and companions. what was the radicalization process for this individual and, again, obviously a little focus on the trip overseas, we know that he went to other places and as was said is he telling the truth as to where he went. did he go to turkey or syria? and obviously these trips are going to be the foundation for much more in-depth investigations. >> hopefully we can get him to open up about those things. thank you, ray. >> thanks, now to how this plays in the race for the white house. just 49 days until the final votes. donald trump and hillary clinton traded sharp attacks all day and abc's tom llamas is in ft. myers, florida, where a fiery rally was held by donald trump. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. donald trump out with colorful thoughts about that bombing suspect and how he's being treated right now. but it's his son, donald
trump jr. who is making headlines this morning. overnight, donald trump sharing his theory of why bombing suspect ahmad khan rahami apparently wasn't on any type of watch list. >> the guy over the chicken stand brought litigation, a lot of litigation against different people and i'll bet you that's why he was on no list. he was on no list, probably didn't want to put him because they didn't want to get sued. >> reporter: railing against rahami against a massive rally in ft. myers, florida, predicting authorities would be coddling him. >> he will be given a fully modern and updated hospital room. and he'll probably even have room service knowing the way our country is. >> reporter: the republican nominee blaming homegrown terror on lax policies and, again, calling for increased profiling. >> i'm saying you're going to have to profile. we'll have to start profiling. >> reporter: hillary clinton focusing her policy on outreach. >> it is crucial that we continue to build up trust
between law enforcement and muslim-american communities. >> reporter: accusing trump of motivating isis with his words and actions. >> we've heard that from former cia director michael hayden, who made it a very clear point when he said, donald trump is being used as a recruiting sergeant for the terrorists. >> reporter: trump's son don jr. also getting into the debate and drawing some fire for this tweet which reads "if i had a bowl of skittles and i told you three would kill you, would you take a handful? that's our syrian refugee problem." the tweet igniting outrage from people saying don jr. shouldn't be comparing syrian refugees to pieces of candy. a clinton campaign spokesperson responding, calling it disgusting. and the mars corporation out with their own statement this morning via twitter. here's the tweet. it reads skittles are candy. refugees are people.
it's an inappropriate analogy. we respectfully refrain from further comment as that could be misinterpreted as marketing. but, george, this comment and those tweets are blowing up on social media this morning. >> real pattern there. tom, thanks very much. jon karl has more on this. you got tweets blowing up. you saw donald trump at the rally. and he and hillary clinton die mettic tri opposed positions on terror yet they're cleese in our poll, 48% to 45%. >> republicans always have a big advantage on the issue of terrorism going back to 9/11, but in this race it's largely -- our poll, within the margin of error, in some polls he has a slight advantage. in others she has a slight advantage of the they could not be more different on this steady leadership and donald trump channeling that raw emotion at terrorism. >> you know why she's doing it. a big difference on who americans think can handle international crisis. a huge advantage right there. >> she has the big advantage on the commander in chief test.
it's much closer when it's who can respond to the terrorists. she's also carving out a different spot than barack obama on this. it was interesting to see her come out before the president to condemn these attacks, to brand them as terrorism before the president. she's trying to find a ground between donald trump and barack obama. >> some other political stories out. you saw chris christie, that trial on the george washington bridge scandal. the bridgegate scandal and prosecutors saying he knew about the traffic jams yet donald trump is standing by him. >> absolutely but if you remember during the primary, donald trump came out and said, of course, chris christie knew. he definitely knew. i mean, he was emphatic so perhaps the person least surprised by this allegation is donald trump himself. he's sticking to christie and in doing so he's saying he's sticking to him because christie tuck by him. >> the news is coming from a member of the kennedy family on this next one. >> the two most political families, kennedys and bushes and kathleen kennedy townsend the oldest child of robert and
ethel kennedy visiting with former president bush in maine. she said he said he's voting for hillary clinton. the interesting thing, there's no denial from the bush family on this and the spokesperson said nobody overheard their conversation. >> and jeb bush has said he's not voting for trump but has not said he's voting for hillary. >> exactly. the debate less than a week away. i'll anchor our prime time coverage at 9:00 eastern with analysis from our whole team. turning to that fatal roadside shooting by police in oklahoma. newly released video raising questions about why an unarmed man was shot and killed. abc's clayton sandell is in tulsa with the moment caught on tape. good morning, clayton. >> reporter: good morning, robin. yeah, those videos are disturbing and police here in tulsa tell me they are so concerned by what they see they've asked the department of justice to help investigate. this morning, there are many questions over how a man would appeared to be having car
trouble ended up shot dead by police. >> somebody left their vehicle running in the middle of the street with the doors wide open. >> reporter: after that 911 call friday night, tulsa police officer betty shelby arrives finding terence crutcher in the street. she radios he isn't cooperating. >> hold traffic. i've got a subject that won't show me his hands. >> reporter: moments later with four officers surrounding him his hands are raised but he seems to ignore their commands. >> this guy is still walking. >> time for a taser, i think. that looks like a bad dude too. >> reporter: hard to make out what happens next. police say he makes a move for something inside his car. one officer fires his taser. officer shelby fires her gun. >> shots fired. >> reporter: crutcher's family believes the shooting is part of what they call an epidemic of unarmed people of color killed by police. >> that big bad dude was my twin brother. that big, bad dude was a father. >> reporter: tulsa's police chief says the 40-year-old was
unarmed. >> i'm going to tell you right here and now there was no gun on the suspect or in the suspect's vehicle. >> reporter: crutcher's family says he didn't deserve to die but that officer shelby deserves to be charged. >> i want that officer to be held to the same standard and we just want justice for my brother so he'll know as he looks down on us that his life truly mattered. >> reporter: now the decision on whether or not that officer will face charges, federal or state, could take weeks. in the meantime, that officer is on paid leave. guys, back to you. >> and for the police chief to come out immediately and say there was no gun on the gentleman and no gun in his vehicle right away he made that clear. >> big statement. big statement made. all right. everybody, take a look at this. what you unfortunately might see if you try to get bass in the southeast. a broken pipeline is causing prices to skyrocket and our steve osunsami has more on the
pressure at the pump. >> reporter: for drivers running on fumes it's frightening. these are the signs turning them away from gas stations across the deep south. no service, no fuel. the gas is sold out. >> we tried to get some gas. they don't have any. it's frustrating. >> we don't have no gas right now. >> reporter: adding insult to injury some service stations are having a good time riaising prices. one station charging as much as $4.50 a gallon. the state's attorney general said he heard more than 600 reports of possible price gouging. >> all my money is going to gas. >> i feel like we're being charged unfairly. >> reporter: it all started 11 days ago with a leak along the colonial pipeline in alabama which provides the east coast with nearly 40% of its gasoline. nearly 300,000 gallons spilled into this pond. hundreds of workers are now building a bypass around the leak that they hope to finish by the end of the week. in the meanwhile, six states are officially in a state of emergency, gas prices are up an
average 16 cents a gallon in georgia, up 11 cents a gallon in tennessee and aaa says that will continue until the pipeline is fully restored. >> we have to make sure as we're going from place to place that we have gas, so hopefully they can get the problem resolved. >> reporter: this service station behind me is one of many across this city that has no gas. authorities insist that there's enough fuel supply for everyone but not when everyone is filling up at the same time. the governor here in georgia has issued an executive order against price gouging. >> tough when everybody has to get to work. to ginger and more on those fires. >> this fire has tripled in size. this is bad and erratic winds >> more than 6,000 acres at this point. tropical storm should go into baja and dry lightning parts

name arthur king to obtain and provide prescription drugs to white. including ambien, percocet and propranolol knowing she was prone to sue identify and depression found in her home. it claims carrey sent a text message to white days after knowing she was already dead as part of a cover-up about her having his medication. you say that mr. carrey took steps to conceal his involvement and culpability in her death and you say that he did that by sending this text message. >> the text message asked in very formal terms do you know where my medication is? i had a full bottle of pills under my sink which was prescribed for my back pain. it is missing. that's not how two individuals who have a personal relationship communicate. >> reporter: at the time of white's funeral reports surfaced
that carrey had offered to cover the expenses, something the lawsuit says was an attempt to paint carrey as a grieving good guy. but burton claims carrey stiffed the family and never followed through. overnight the actor telling abc news, i will not tolerate this heartless attempt to exploit me or the woman i loved. cat's troubles were born long before i metry hen sadly her tragic end was beyond anyone's control. now, according to officials white had attempted to take her own life before. she left behind two notes, both of them for carrey along with a box of her husband's belongings. robin. >> all right, kayna, thank you. abc's chief legal analyst dan abrams joins us now. how difficult is it to win a case like this. >> when someone commits suicide, an adult it's very difficult for family members to win because it was the actions of the adult. with that said, they can still move forward with this kind of lawsuit but the most important thing they're going to be able to prove is that he gave her the
drugs, right, because their position is she stole the drugs. his lawyer has made that statement already. so first of all they'll have to say he provided the drugs. secondly they'll have to be able to demonstrate those were the drugs that killed her and, number three, they're going to have to show it was reasonably foreseeable that something like this could or would happen. >> that's a lot to have to try and prove. what about the claim that carrey used a false name to obtain some of these. >> not helpful fact for him, but if he had been using a fake name to get drugs for her, that would be a much bigger problem than using a fake name to get drugs for him. their position, carrey's position is actors do this all the time. celebrities do this all the time to protect their privacy. that's not really a legal defense because you're not supposed to do that. you're not supposed to give a fake name. but that doesn't necessarily mean that she -- that the family wins the lawsuit, that this guy wins the lawsuit just because
jim carrey gave a fake name. >> the family also, they're really banking on those text messages and feel they're damaging. >> you heard it from the lawyer. basically saying that this was a ruse to cover it up. maybe, that will be an important question in terms of did he provide her with the drugs? an important question not the only question in this lawsuit, but that's the most important hurdle for them to overcome first, which is he gave her the drugs, because if they can't show he gave her the drugs they have no case whatsoever. >> i know it's a difficult time for the family. a loss like this. >> absolutely. very personal case. >> very much so. all right, dan, thanks very much. over to michael now and find out what's on the big board. michael. >> all right, thank you, robin. coming up on our big board are you throwing away money at the gas pump? a report revealing how americans are wasting billions of dollars at the pump and the cheerios lawsuit, are their healthy claims misleading? our insiders join us in two minutes. there they are.

they've lost a lot of it. >> hard to gain it back once you lose it, george. >> it sure is. >> thank you, rebecca. now tay report out about throwing away money at the gas pump. according to research by aaa, america has wasted billions of dollars. last year using premium gas they didn't need and our own abc's david kerley joins us. hello, david. good morning. >> good morning, michael. you know we all like to take care of our cars. >> i'm one of the guys who puts up the pump and i go, you know what, i'll get that 91, that 93, i feel like it does -- but that's billions and a serious chunk of change. >> the high octane you're talking about, the different choices you have, regular or premium and, you know, do you want to give your car ground beef or a steak. give it premium. believe this, 16 million americans are putting premium in a car that doesn't need it and according to aaa, that means they are wasting money, 2$2.1 billion a year spent on premium gas that you don't really need. in fact, 70% of the cars on the
road that americans drive take regular gas and what aaa is saying, guys, is basically that's all you need to put in in your regular gas and it'll work just fine. >> seems like you're wasting all that hall of fame change. >> i know. sunny is over here huffing and puffing like i've been wasting money. >> i'm putting in regular. starting today. >> here's the other side of the story. we have a viewer, nicole, who tweeted on our social site and said she uses it in her older car because it knocks and pings if she doesn't. so can it make the vehicle run better even if it's not required? >> yes, she's probably getting rid of the ping but the problem is the money she's spending if she saved it all and tuned up the car and made it run the way it was supposed to it wouldn't be pinging. what aaa did, they took cars and put it on a treadmill for cars and found there was no increase in horsepower, no increase in performance if you put premium in a regular. the advice from aaa make sure it's running right and put in the regular gas. now, if you have a car like some
of us do that have to have premium continue to put premium in. >> there's your excuse. >> there's my excuse. that new lawsuit about cheerios. general mills defending itself against this and sunny is here with more. a spokesperson said general mills continues to stand behind the quality of these products and the accuracy of the product's labels. what exactly are the plaintiffs complaining about. >> our honey nut cheerios. the complainants are saying, listen, honey nut cheerios is being deceptively advertised so touting all the health benefits saying it can lower cholesterol but highlighting the fact it has a pretty high sugar content saying that is not right. not giving the consumer the right information. >> but there's a growing number of lawsuits against these big food companies and even if this one is successful how does it impact or affect the industry. >> these lawsuits really aren't successful. most of them don't work but i think it sort of shines a light
on this issue and makes sure that the consumer looks a little more carefully at these labels and it also makes these companies better companies. it makes them good corporate citizens so there's not as much duping going on so really a relationship but i always caution people, just read the labels because even though they may deceptively advertise on the front, if you look at the side, the content is there so do your job as a mom, do your job as a parent. look at the label. >> you wanted to stick with those honey nut cheerios. >> i know but you really can't. you got to look. >> i just assume all cereal has sugar and i'm eating it because i want it. plain and simple. sunny, thank you. david, thank you and rebecca, thank you, as well. coming up, tim tebow's big debut on the baseball field. george, i thought you were going to leave here. you were going to play for the mets. i'm confused. >> i got cut in sophomore year. but she always told me i don't care if you turn out to be a great athlete or whatever but, you need to make sure you get your college degree.

and everybody thought death sentence and there was backlash and you could not play ball anymore. how did you find as a family that strength to say, we are going to fight? >> this woman here, god let me know why i married her because losing her, i possibly wouldn't be here. i probably would be dead. >> reporter: today magic is living a healthy life and together they have raised three children, andre, e.j. and elisa and writes about magic coming to term with e.j.'s sexuality. i think a lot of people will be helped by how you write about your son e.j. who thankfully was born shortly after the diagnosis, healthy, and that you all realized early on that your son was gay. >> ultimately you want your child to be happy but i knew that earvin didn't understand. >> you're very honest that you had a tough conversation with him about it. you didn't want him to be and then you changed and you
apologized to him for some of the things that you had said to him. >> i had to come to realize that this is who he is and he's going to be happy. i knew he was looking for me to accept who he was. and i had to get out of my own way, right. and out of my macho, the whole -- >> and he couldn't let me tell him. he had to come to terps with it, you know, himself. >> how are you? >> reporter: e.j. is now a reality show star. >> he has a combination of both of us. the soul comes from her and his mind-set is like his dad's and that's what i love about him and so we're blessed. >> we know that religion says no and i did have a big problem with that, ultimately i just pray to god and said, god, you revealed about how you felt about this and he was like, love. love your child and that's what i got because, you know, that's what jesus was about is love.
>> love is love. >> that's right. >> and a lot of love between them and a lot of love in that home. they've been married 25 years and have known each other almost 40. >> wow, and been through so much together. >> we rarely hear from cookie and to hear her voice and you do hear it in her book, "believing in magic," which is out today, it's a beautiful read. >> great family. >> sure is. we got your look-alike coming up. who could that be? oh. what?
