BEING PLACED IN TRYING TO FIND THIS PERSON QUICKLY >>> WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT THE DRILLS

BECAUSE OF WHAT HAS HAPPENED OVER THE PAST CUP PAL OF YEARS CAN YOU SHED A LITTLE BIT MORE LATE ON THE TRAINING WHEN IT COMES TO MAKING SURE THESE KIDS ARE PROTECTED AS WELL AS THEY ARE IN HARM'S WAY WHEN YOU ARE LEAVING THE COOL AND THE SUSPECT HASN'T BEEN TAKEN INTO CUSTODY? I DON'T TRAINING IN SCHOOLS VARIES WIDELY SOME SCHOOLS WILL DO ONE LOOK DOWN DRILL A YEAR, SOME TEACHERS, AGAIN, DEPENDING ON IF THE TEACHERS SEE IT IS IMPORTANT OR REALIZE THE VALUE IN IT TAKE IT SERIOUSLY AND THEY PRACTICE IT SO THE STUDENTS UNDERSTAND OTHER SCHOOLS ARE VERY DISMISSIVE

IT IS LIKE THE MONTHLY FIRE DRILL THERE IS NO URGENCY TO IT IT IS SOMETHING THEY GO THROUGH THE MOTIONS WHEREAS ALL THE WAY AT THE OTHER END A LOT OF SCHOOLS ARE IMPLEMENTING CURRICULUM, ENGAGING IN THE CAMPUS CULTURE WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR THEM? WHAT DOES IT DO GIVING THEM PERMISSION TO RUNOFF A CAMPUS

GIVING THEM PERMISSION TO TAKE SOME PHYSICAL DEFENSE IF THEY ARE CLOSE ENOUGH IT WIDELY RANGES DEPENDING ON THE SCHOOL AND THE SCHOOL DISTRICT >>> WE WANT TO UPDATE OUR VIEWERS ARROYO SECO JR HIGH AND SAUGUS HIGH ARE THE ONLY SCHOOLS ON LOCKDOWN WE ARE LOOKING LIVE AT PICTURES IN A NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE WE RECEIVED A REPORT THE SHOOTER'S PHONE POSSIBLY PINGED IN THIS AREA

WE HAVE NO IDEA IF THAT IS CONFIRMED OR NOT THEY HAVE SCHOOLS ON LOCKDOWN BUT NEIGHBORHOODS TELLING PEOPLE TO LOCK THEIR DOORS BUT CALL 911 IF THEY SEE SOMEBODY CLEARLY THE SHOOTER COULD BE ANYWHERE ADAM BECAUSE YOU ARE AN EXPERT WITH THIS, WHAT KIND OF DAY ARE WE FORECASTING FOR PARENTS WAITING TO REUNITE WITH THEIR CHILDREN

HOW CHAOTIC IS THE REST OF THE DAY LOOKING LIKE? >> IT IS GOING TO BE VERY CHAOTIC WE ARE STILL IN THE MIDST OF THE EVENT YOU HAVE OBVIOUSLY, KIDS ARE STILL ON LOCKDOWN REALIZING THEY ARE IN A LOCKED CLASSROOM, THEY ARE SAFE WE KNOW THEY ARE SAFE

THAT LOCKDOWN IS GOING TO LAST AS LONG AS NEEDED MOST LIKELY UNTIL THIS SUSPECT IS FOUND THAT COULD BE THE NEXT HOUR THE NEXT THREE HOURS SO IT IS GOING TO BE A LONG DAY AS FAR AS PARENTS WITH THE ANXIETY AND THE FEAR TO WANT TO GET BACK TO THEIR STUDENT ONCE THE STUDENTS ARE RELEASED, THEN IT IS GOING TO BE ALMOST A LONGER DAY AFTERWARD OF WORKING THROUGH THE PSYCHOLOGICAL TRAUMA, THE FEAR, THE ANXIETY OF WHERE THEY WERE WHAT THEY SAW WHAT THEY HEARD

FOR PARENTS TO BE THERE FOR THEIR STUDENTS, TO LISTEN TO THEIR FEARS, LISTEN TO WHAT THEY WERE GOING THROUGH AND BE PREPARED TO HELP IN ANY WAY POSSIBLE >>> WE ARE LOOKING AT LIVE PICTURES THIS IS A NEIGHBORHOOD, SYCAMORE CREEK DRIVE WHERE WE HAVE SEEN SWA

T AND A LOT OF POLICE ACTIVITY JUST OUTSIDE OF A HOME WHAT IS GOING ON RIGHT NOW? I KNOW YOU ARE NOT WORKING THIS INVESTIGATION WHEN YOU HEAR OF SW

AT OR A LARGE AMOUNT OF POLICE PRESENCE AND A NEIGHBORHOOD SURROUNDING A HOME YOU HAVE TO THINK THE POLICE ARE ON TO SOMETHING? >> Reporter: ANYTIME YOU SEE A SWA

T TEAM MOBILIZED CHANCES ARE THEY ARE PROBABLY CLOSE TO WHERE THIS PERSON AND WHAT IS GOING ON IT COULD BE A BARRICADED SITUATION PERHAPS THEY HAVE MADE CONTACT AND THE PERSON IS REFUSING TO COME OUT WE ARE GOING TO LOOK AT SETTING UP A PERIMETER MAKING SURE THE AREA IS CONTAINED SO THE PERSON DOES NOT GET OUT OF THE AREA, OR YOU KNOW, IT COULD BE A FALSE ALARM

IT COULD HAVE SOMETHING MAY MAYBE THEY ARE SURROUNDING A HOUSE MAYBE NOBODY IS IN A PERSON RAN IN AND THEY ARE ALREADY GONE THERE IS PROBABLY GOOD INFORMATION THE PERSON IS IN THIS AREA, MAY BE AT THIS HOUSE AND THEY ARE TAKING ALL THE TACTICAL MEASURES TO KEEP THE OFFICERS SAFE AND THE COMMUNITY AND THE NEIGHBORS SAFE UNTIL THEY CONFIRM THE PERSON IS INSIDE >>> THANK YOU SO MUCH, ADAM COCHRAN WE ARE GOING TO TALK TO A PARENT WHO WAS DROPPING OFF THEIR CHILD AT SCHOOL

THEY DON'T WANT TO IDENTIFY THEMSELVES I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND THANK YOU FOR JOINING US >> YES NO PROBLEM, I GUESS

>> Reporter: CAN YOU TELL US WHAT YOU SAW? WHAT YOU WITNESSED? >> YEAH LIKE YOU SAID I WAS ABOUT TO DROP MY SON OFF THERE IS A LINE OF CARS WAITING TO GET TO A POINT WHERE YOU CAN DROPOFF YOUR KIDS AND WAS WAITING IN THAT LINE NOTICED PEOPLE LEAVING

FIRST IT WAS LIKE ONE OR TWO KIDS AND THEN FOUR OR FIVE AND MORE AND MORE THEN NOT KNOWING WHAT IS GOING ON, COULDN'T HEAR ANYTHING, COULDN'T SEE ANYTHING, LUCKILY WE SAW A FRIEND OF MY SON'S WALKING AWAY FROM CAMPUS HE GOT OUR ATTENTION TALKED TO HIM, HE SAID THERE IS A SHOOTER, DON'T GO TO SCHOOL SO THERE IS ANOTHER FRIEND OF OURS WHO LIVES FAIRLY CLOSE TO THE SCHOOL SO THE KIDS WERE KIND OF GOING TO THAT HOUSE

SO I SENT THE KIDS THERE, TOLD THEM TO GET INSIDE AND LOOK THE DOOR AND WENT TOWARD THE SCHOOL TO SEE IF THERE WAS ANYTHING I COULD SEE OR DO TO HELP ANY OTHER KIDS I COULD GET OUT OF THERE STARTED CALLING FAMILY MEMBERS WHOSE KIDS WERE AT THE SCHOOL AS WELL LET THEM KNOW DON'T COME, STAY AWAY IF YOU ARE NOT HEAR >> SO IT WAS AT THE START OF SCHOOL

WHAT TIME DOES CLASS START? >> IT DEPENDS IF YOU HAVE A FIRST PERIOD OR NOT IF YOU HAVE A FIRST PERIOD IT IS LIKE 7:00 OTHERWISE 7:45 I CAN'T SO IF YOU HAVE A FIRST PERIOD A NUMBER OF STUDENTS WERE ALREADY ON CAMPUS AROUND 7:30 IF YOU CAN HOW ARE YOUR KIDS DOING RIGHT NOW? I DON'T MY KIDS ARE FINE WE WERE IN NO DANGER AT ALL

WE WEREN'T EVEN ON CAMPUS THE FRIENDS THAT I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SPEAK TO, THEIR KIDS ARE FINE AS WELL, THANKFULLY JUST CONCERN ABOUT NOSE THAT WERE INVOLVED >> THE KIDS YOU KNOW OF COURSE KIDS DO TALK HAVE YOUR KIDS OR ANY OF THE STUDENTS THAT YOU MAY HAVE SPOKEN WITH HAVE THEY SAID ANYTHING ABOUT THEM POSSIBLY KNOWING WHO THE SUSPECT IS? >> NO

NO THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT WERE EACH ON CAMPUS WHEN IT HAPPENED THAT I HAVE SPOKEN TO SAID THEY HEARD NOISE, AT FIRST A SINGLE POP AND THEN MULTIPLE POPS AND SAW PEOPLE RUNNING AND JUST RAN >> WHAT A TERRY MORNING ON THE LEFT SIDE OF OUR SCREEN RIGHT NOW WE WANT TO LET VIEWERS KNOW THESE ARE STUDENTS AT SAUGUS HIGH BEING TAKEN TO BUSES

IF YOU HAVE KIDS AT SAUGUS HIGH THEY ARE TAKING MEASURES TO MAKE SURE KIDS GET OFF CAMPUS THERE IS ALSO THAT CENTRAL MEETING POINT AT THE PARK THE REUNIFICATION CENTER THEY ARE TRYING TO GET KIDS OFF CAMPUS BECAUSE THE ACTIVE SHOOTER I STILL OUT THERE OF COURSE YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE FALLOUT AFTER THIS

EVEN THOUGH YOUR KIDS ARE FINE PHYSICALLY, IT IS ALSO THE EMOTIONAL FALLOUT HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT HOW YOUR FAMILY IS GOING TO DEAL WITH THIS? >> I HAVEN'T GOTTEN THAT FAR YET LIKE I SAID, MY SON WAS SAFE AND NOWHERE NEAR IT FRIENDS OF OURS THAT WERE INVOLVED OR HAVE SEEN THINGS, I HAVE NO IDEA HOW YOU BOUNCE FROM THIS AND TELL YOUR KIDS THINGS ARE SAFE >> HAVE YOU HAD THE CONVERSATION WITH YOUR KIDS LEADING UP TO THIS POINT? THAT A POSSIBILITY SOMETHING LIKE THIS COULD HAPPEN? WITH DRILLS ACROSS THE COUNTRY AT HIGH SCHOOLS AND ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS? >> YEAH

AND JUST KIND OF TRY TO TEACH THEM TO BE AWARE OF THEIR SURROUNDINGS AND IF THEY SEE SOMETHING OR EVEN FEEL SOMETHING IS WEIRD, DON'T JUST SHAKE IT OFF, PAY ATTENTION TO IT AND PUT YOURSELF SOMEWHERE, WHERE YOU ARE SAFE IF YOU HAVE FRIENDS AROUND YOU GET THEM SAFE TALK TO AN ADULT AND LET THEM KNOW HEY SOMETHING IS WEIRD OVER THERE YOU MATE WANT TO CHECK IT THE WORLD IS NOT EXACTLY A KIND PLACE ANY MORE

I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE DO TO KEEP KIDS SAFE I KNOW THE SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT RESPONDED IMMEDIATELY THE FIRE DEPARTMENT AND PARAMEDICS RESPONDED IMMEDIATELY WITHIN I DON'T KNOW MINUTES OF MAY BEING THERE, THERE HAD TO HAVE BEEN 15 DIFFERENT EMERGENCY VEHICLES FLYING UP THE STREET, PARKING, GETTING OUT AND MADELY RUNNING INTO THE CAMPUS WITHOUT ANY THOUGHT OR CONCERN FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN GETTING IN AND FIGURING OUT WHAT TO DO SO THE RESPONDERS ARE TRAINED, THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING THEY DO THEIR JOB UNBELIEVABLY WELL

EE THAN BE SAFE AND ABIDE BY WHAT THE EMERGENCY RESPONDERS TELL YOU, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO TELL KIDS >> THAT IS ALL YOU CAN TELL THEM THANK YOU SO MUCH WE APPRECIATE IT BEST OF LUCK TO YOU

YOUR KIDS AND YOUR COMMUNITY THANKS FOR TALKING TO US >>> WE HAVE FORMER CONGRESSWOMAN KATIE HILL JOINING US ON THE PHONE OVEN TWEETING ABOUT ALL THE ACTIVITY THIS MORNING YOU ARE ON TOP OF IT

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING US >>> THANK YOU >>> WHAT DO YOU KNOW RIGHT NOW? WHAT INFORMATION CAN YOU SHARE WITH US AND YOUR CONSTITUENTS? >> WELL I THINK THE INFORMATION IS VERY FLUID THE LATEST I HAVE BEEN HEARING FROM MY DAD HE IS IN LAW ENFORCEMENT NOT SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT, IS THAT IT IS VERY LIKELY THE SUSPECT HAS SHOT HIMSELF

BUT WE DON'T KNOW THAT THAT IS NOT CONFIRMED THAT WE HAVE YOU HAVE TO HAVE ID TO PICK YOUR I HAD UP FROM CENTRAL PARK, THE PARK RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET AND THAT YOU KNOW, THE STUDENTS ARE BEING ALLOWED OUT AND I THINK THAT THE SUSPECT IS CONTAINED IN A SINGLE AREA

BUT YOU KNOW, THE STUDENTS AND WE HAD SO MANY STUDENTS THAT WERE VOLUNTEERS AND INTERNS ON OUR CAMPAIGN WE ARE INCREDIBLY WORRIED ABOUT WHO IS IMPACT MY PARENTS HAVE FRIENDS WHO HAVE KIDS THERE AND SO THE YOUNGER SIBLINGS, THIS IS THE SAME SCHOOL BOTH I, MY SISTER AND MAY BROTHER ALL WE WANT TO >> THIS IS YOUR ALMA MATTER CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE SCHOOL AND THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS THAT MAY HAVE BEEN THERE? MORE THAN 1000 STUDENTS ATTEND THIS SCHOOL? >> 2400 STUDENTS

ABOUT 3000 PEOPLE I THINK AT LEAST THAT ARE THERE INCLUDING FACULTY IT IS A LARGE SCHOOL IT IS A DIFFICULT AREA TO TRY TO CONTAIN IT SOUNDS LIKE THEY HANDLED IT IN THE MOST EFFECTIVE AND ORDERLY WAY POSSIBLE

THE RESULT IS UNFORTUNATELY THE TRAINING THESE STUDENTS HAVE HAD TO GO THROUGH I WAS THERE 15 YEARS AGO I GRADUATED AND THE THOUGHT OF HAVING AN ACTIVE SHATTER DRILL NEVER WOULD HAVE EVEN CROSSED OUR MINDS BUT WITHIN THE LAST 10 YEARS YOU HAVE SEEN HOW MUCH THIS HAS CHANGED FOR STUDENTS MARCH FOR OUR LIVES, THAT ORGANIZATION UP HERE REALLY ACTIVATED AND STUDENT LED BY ALL THE HIGH SCHOOLS HEAR THE MOM ACTION GROUP WAS INCREDIBLY ACTIVE

IT IS HEARTBREAKING THIS IS WHAT YOU FEAR AND MORE AND MORE I HEAR STUDENTS SAY IT IS NOT ABOUT WILL OR COULD THIS HAPPEN TO US BUT WHEN >> THAT IS WITH YOUR WORK IN CALIFORNIA AND ACROSS THE COUNTRY, I'M SURE YOU GET THIS QUESTION OFTEN WHAT WILL WE BE ABLE TO DO TO STOP THIS? >> IT IS A DIFFICULT QUESTION

IN THE HOUSE WE HAVE PASSED FOUR DIFFERENT PIECES OF LEGISLATION THAT WOULD IMPACT YOU KNOW, GUN DEATHS SUBSTANTIALLY WE DON'T KNOW THE INDIVIDUAL CAUSE OF EACH SINGLE INCIDENT HOW THAT PERSON ACQUIRED THE WEAPON SO THIS IS A 15-YEAR-OLD KID IT IS HARD TO SAY WHAT HAPPENED

OUR COMMUNITY HAS A HIGHER NUMBER OF GUNS PER CAPITA THAN MOST AND SO YOU HAVE TO IMAGINE THAT THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE THAT IT WAS ACQUIRED FROM A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER BUT I THINK WE ALSO HAVE TO REMEMBER AT THE SAME TIME, THIS ISN'T ALWAYS A TALKING POINT BUT WE HAVE TO REMEMBER AT THE SAME TIME, THIS IS A 15-YEAR- OLD STUDENT THAT THIS HAPPENED TO SO WHAT ARE WE MISSING? WHAT SOCIAL SUPPORTS NEED TO BE IN PLACE TO PREVENT THIS KIND OF THING FROM HAPPENING IN THE FIRST PLACE? A 15-YEAR-OLD, I THINK OF HOW MAY LITTLE BROTHER WAS WHEN HE WAS 15

AND HOW DAMAGED OR DISTURBED THE MIND MUST BE BY THIS POINT THAT IS A FAILURE ON SOCIETY IT IS NOT JUST AN INDIVIDUAL FAULT >> KATIE, THEY ARE STARTING TO CENTER NOW MORE DEPUTIES AND UNITS NEAR ARROYO SECO JUNIOR HIGH YOU WE WANT THERE

THEY ARE ON SYCAMORE DRIVE CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THIS AREA? >> YES, IT IS TOTALLY SUBURBAN IT IS YOU KNOW AN OLDER COMMUNITY IN SAUGUS I DON'T KNOW THAT THERE IS A LOT TO SAY, VERY MIDDLE INCOME, PEOPLE MOVE HEAR FOR SAFE SCHOOLS AND SAFE COMMUNITIES SAUGUS HAS ALWAYS BEEN ONE OF THE SAFEST COMMUNITIES IN THE COUNTRY

IT WAS JUST IN THE TOP TEN LIST OF THE SAFEST AREAS OF CALIFORNIA THIS IS SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE IN THE PAST WOULD NEVER HAVE EXPECTED COULD MAKE IT TO OUR COMMUNITY >> THANK YOU FOR JOINING US AND TAKING TIMEOUT OF YOUR SCHEDULED TO GIVE US SOME INSIGHT I HAD NO CLAW THIS WAS YOUR ALMA MATER >> >>> YOU HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING THIS ON CBSN NEWS

WE ARE STILL WAITING FOR ANY NEWS OF CAPTURE OF THE SHATTER WE DON'T SEE ANY PROGRESS BEING MADE THEY JUST APPEARED TO CLEAR THE SCENE OF A HOUSE ON SYCAMORE THE DEPUTIES HAD BEEN SEARCHING THEY WERE LACKING IN THE CREEK FOR AWHILE AND NOW IT APPEARS THEY ARE NEAR ARROYO SECO JUNIOR HEY WHICH IS STILL UNDER LOCKDOWN THAT IS THE ONLY SCHOOL IN ADDITION TO SAUGUS HIGH THAT REMAINS ON LOCKDOWN

ALL THE OTHER SCHOOLS HAVE BEEN CLEARED THEY ARE TELLING PEOPLE TO GO TO THE REUNIFICATION CENTER WHERE PARENTS CAN MEAT WITH THEIR CHILDREN IF YOU ARE AT HOME, THE OFFICIALS LA COUNTY OFFICIALS SAY LOCK YOUR DOORS AND CALL 911

>> THE REUNIFICATION CENTER IS IN CENTRAL PARK IT IS ALSO CLEAR AT THIS HOUR THEY DON'T KNOW WHERE THE SUSPECT IS BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN COMBING THIS AREA AGAIN WE SAID WITH A FINE TOOTH COMB THEY HAVEN'T HAD A CHANCE TO GET THEIR HANDS ON THE SUSPECT

AGAIN DESCRIBED AS A MALE ASIAN WEARING A BLACK HAT, BLACK SHIRT AND BLUE JEANS SO THAT IN ITSELF IS FRIGHTENING FOR EVERYONE HE IS SPECIALLY WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT PARENTS ONE OF THE AUTHORITIES SAID IT IS NOT A IDEA IF YOU CAN DON'T GO TO THE REUNIFICATION CENTER BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T FOUND THE SUSPECT

I DON'T KNOW ANY PARENT THAT WILL FOLLOW THAT RULE >>> WE HAVE A TWEET HERE WE HAVE AN UPDATE FROM HENRY HOSPITAL FOUR PATIENTS, THREE MALE AND ONE FEMALE THE FEMALE AND TWO MALES ARE IN CRITICAL CONDITION

ONE MALE IS IN GOOD CONDITION THIS TWEET IS FROM FOUR MINUTES AGO >>> WE ACTUALLY WITNESSED FIRST RESPONDERS DOING CPR ON THE SCENE ANOTHER THING WE WANT TO POINT OUT THERE ARE STILL STUDENTS ON THE CAMPUS AT SAUGUS HIGH SCHOOL LOCKED INSIDE AS A RESULT OF THIS PENDING INVESTIGATION AND THE SEARCH FOR THE SUSPECT

ABOUT 50 STUDENTS ARE INSIDE THAT BAND CHOIR ROOM AREA THEY FOUND A VICTIM, ONE OF THOSE VICTIMS WAS FOUND IN THE CHOIR ROOM SO THAT JUST GOES TO SHOW YOU THAT THAT IS A POINT THERE FOR PEOPLE FAMILIAR OF THE SCHOOL WHERE THE SHOOTING POSSIBLY STARTED BUT THESE ARE PICTURES OF STUDENTS WHO ARE BEING ALLOWED TO EXIT AS WELL THEY WERE BRINGING THEM OUT IN STAGES BECAUSE THE CAMPUS IS SO BIG

WE JUST FINISHED TALKING TO KATIE HILL AND WE KNOW THAT MORE THAN 2400 STUDENTS ARE AT THE WHEN YOU ADD THE FACULTY AND STAFF THAT IS ABOUT 3000 PEOPLE ALONE WE'LL SEE THESE PICTURES FOR THE NEXT MINUTES UNTIL THEY GET THE CAMPUS CLEARED AND SECURED >>> THE RIGHT SIDE OF YOUR SCENE, YOU CAN SEE THE LATEST NUMBERS AT LEAST FIVE OFFICIAL VICTIMS OF THE SHATTER

THE GUNMAN REMAINS ON THE LOOSE THIS MORNING IN THE SANTA CLARITA AREA TWO SCHOOLS ARE LOCKED DOWN AYO-YO SECO JR HIGH AND SAUGUS HAL IF YOU LIVE IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD, STAY INSIDE, LOCK YOUR DOORS ACCORDING TO THE L

A COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT >>> SOME SHOWS YOU AUTHORITIES PUT THE ENTIRE SCHOOL DISTRICT ON LOCKDOWN I TOLD YOU IN THE NUMBER OF SCHOOL SHOOTINGS I HAVE COVERED OVER THE YEARS, I HAVE NEVER HEARD WHERE THE ENTIRE SCHOOL DISTRICT IS ON LOCK DOWNPOUR THAT WAS ABOUT 23,000 STUDENTS BUT IT HAS BEEN LIVED ABOUT THE EXCEPTION OF TWO RIGHT NOW

AGAIN FIVE VICTIMS, FOLKS, TWO VERY CRITICAL RIGHT NOW THEY DID HAVE MEDEVAC THAT HAD TO FLY PATIENTS TO NEARBY HOSPITALS THERE JUST GOING TO SHOW YOU HOW SEVERE THE SITUATION IS YOU ARE LOOKING AT THE VIDEO THAT IS THE SCENE WE HAVE SEEN ALL TOO OFTEN ACROSS THE COUNTRY

STUDENTS ESCORTED OFF CAMPUS THEY HAVE TO LEAVE THEIR BACKPACKS, LEAF EVERYTHING IN PLACE MOST OF THE TIME THEY HAVE TO COME OUT WITH THEIR HANDS UP AND THEY HAVE YET TO LOCATE THE SHATTER THIS IS ABOUT 35 MILES NORTH OF DO YOU WANT LOS ANGELES

>>> AND WHAT WAS SO HEARTBREAKING IS WE SAW BACKPACKS STREWN AROUND, CLEARLY WHEN THE GUNFIRE RANG OUT THEY DROPPED AND RAN WE SAW PAPERS SCATTERED ON THE THERE ARE LOTS OF STUDENTS AFFECTED OF COURSE YOU THINK OF THE EMOTIONAL TRAUMA OF ALL THE STUDENTS WHO LEFT THE SCENE AND WHAT IS WILD IS THEY HAD A TRAINING ABOUT A MONTH AGO WHERE STUDENTS WENT THROUGH DRILLS TO PREPARE FOR A POSSIBLE ACTIVE SHOOTER

IN TALKING TO ADAM COCHRAN ON THE PHONE, HE SAID IT IS A FINE LINE HE SAID WITH THIS BEING A FELLOW STUDENT, POSSIBLY A FELLOW STUDENT AT SAUGUS HIGH, THE ASIAN MALE WEARING A BLACK HAT BLACK T-SHIRT AND BLUE JEANS, THEY SAID THEY KNEW THE KID AS A FELLOW STUDENT BUT ADAM COCHRAN, THE SCHOOL SHOOTING EXPERT SAID SOMETIMES THIS ALSO CAN GIVE STUDENTS AN IDEA THAT IT IS THE EXPOSURE AND THE AWARENESS WHERE MOST KIDS ARE THINKING, HOW DO I STAY SAFE? >> THIS IS SUCH A QUIET, CLOSE KNIT COMMUTE A FRIENDLY PLACE TO LIVE

WE HAVE SEEN SITUATIONS LIKE THIS IN PLACES WHERE WE NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD HAPPEN THOSE DAYS, CLEARLY, ARE LONG GONE THIS IS AN AREA AGAIN WHERE THE STUDENTS ARE STARTING TO GATHER AND THEIR PARENTS ARE TRYING TO GET TO THEM YOU ARE A PARENT YOURSELF I KNOW PARENTS ARE BEING TOLD NOT TO HEAD IN THAT DIRECTION, YOU KNOW WHAT? UNTIL I SEE MY CHILD I'M HEADING IN THAT DIRECTION

IT IS VERY DANGEROUS, FOLKS THEY DON'T HAVE THE SUSPECT IN CUSTODY RIGHT NOW >>> TINA IS ON THE GROUND AT THE SCENE WHAT CAN YOU TELL US? >> Reporter: I'M TALKING TO BEN, HE IS ONE OF THE STUDENTS HERE YOU WERE WALKING TO SCHOOL

WHAT DID YOU HEAR? >> IT WAS LIKE TWO OR THREE GUNSHOTS AND LIKE EVERYONE STARTED RUNNING OUT FROM THE ENTRANCE >> Reporter: YOU DIDN'T KNOW AT FIRST IT WAS GUNSHOTS? >> IT WAS LIKE A BIG BALLOON POP LIKE SUPER LOUD AND EVERYONE STARTED RUNNING >> Reporter: YOUR SISTER WAS ALREADY AT SCHOOL YOU HAVE TEXTED HER

WHEN DID SHE SAY? SHE WAS SAYING EVERYTHING IS OKAY BUT SHE SAID IT WAS REALLY CLOSE TO HER >>> IT IS SO SCARY YOU COME IN EVERY DAY AND YOU DON'T EXPECT ANYTHING LIKE THIS TO HAPPEN >>> YOU HAVE BEEN TALKING TO OTHER FRIENDS, TEXTING OTHER FRIENDS

IT SOUNDS LIKE FROM WHAT YOU ARE HEARING THIS SHOOTER WAS A STUDENT? WHAT HAVE YOU HEARD? >> I HAVE HEARD IT WAS A SOPHOMORE MAYBE, 15 OR SO >> WHAT DO YOU THINK SOMEBODY WHO WOULD DO THAT TO THAT I ARE OWN SCHOOL TO PEOPLE THEY KNOW? >> IT IS SCARY YOU GO HERE EVERY DAY YOU WOULDN'T THINK IT WOULD EVER HAPPEN >> Reporter: YOU ARE SITTING HERE WATCHING THEM TAKE STUDENTS OUT

EACH IF WE CAN'T GET OUR KIDS FROM THE SCHOOL RIGHT NEW, THEN TO BE CLOSE SO AT LEAST THEY CAN SEE WITH THEIR OWN EYES THEY ARE OKAY WE HAVE BEEN WATCHING AS STUDENTS HAVE BEEN BEING HEAD OUT IT IS A VARIETY OF EMOTIONS YOU SEE ON FACES SOME LOOK COMPLETELY OKAY SOME LOOK LIKE THEY ARE IN SHOCK

OTHERS ARE HOLDING HANDS AND KEEP OF HOLDING EACH OTHER AND YOU CAN TELL THE EMOTION A LOT OF EMOTION FROM THE PARENTS I THINK EVERYBODY IS STILL TRYING TO PROCESS THIS IS ACTUALLY REAL, THIS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING AND STILL SO MANY QUESTIONS ABOUT WHO WAS AFFECTED AND WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THE SUSPECT A LOT OF PEOPLE HOPING TO GET MORE ANSWERS YOU CAN SEE ANOTHER GROUP OF STUDENTS BEING HEAD OUT RIGHT NOW

HAVING THAT TRAINING, HAVING THAT KIND OF EXERCISE REALLY IS A GOOD THING AS WE HAVE BEEN STANDING HERE, WE HAVE BEEN WATCHING BIG GROUPS OF STUDENTS BEING ESCORTED TO BUSES AND TAKEN TO A CHURCH DOWN THE STREET TO BE REUNITED WITH PARENTS THE SHERIFF IS TRYING TO TELL PARENTS TO GO TO THAT AREA THAT IS WHERE IT WILL BE EASIER FOR THEM TO GET REUNITED SO MANY PARENTS WANT TO SEE THEIR KIDS

A LOT OF THEM HAVE BEEN TEXTING AND CALLING REALLY THEY WANT TO BE HERE AND BE CLOSE AND SEE FOR THEMSELVES THAT THEIR KIDS ARE OKAY STILL NOT A LOT OF INFORMATION ABOUT EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED EXACTLY WHO WAS INVOLVED WE ARE NOW HEARING FROM THE SHERIFF THAT THE SUSPECT IS IN CUSTODY

IS BEING TREATED THAT, OF COURSE, IS A BIG RELIEF TO PEOPLE HERE BUT STILL, UNTIL THEY KNOW WHO MIGHT HAVE BEEN INYARD, HOW MANY STUDENTS COULD HAVE BEEN IN THE LINE OF THE SHOOTER A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE NOT GOING TO FEEL GOOD UNTIL THEY HAVE ANSWERS GUYS? >>> THE REFERRING IS FAR FROM OVER WE ACTUALLY HAVE SOME SOUND FROM A STUDENT WHO WITNESSED A TEACHER

IMAGINE JUST WANTING TO STAY FOCUSED ON TEACHING BUT THEN YOU HAVE TO TURN INTO A HERO IN A SPLIT SECOND TINA TALKED ABOUT HOW THE STUDENTS HAVE BEEN PREPARING AND PARTICIPATING IN DRILLS OF THIS NATURE FOR THE PAST COUPLE OF MONTHS OR SO AND IT APPEARS THAT WHAT THEY LEARNED PRETTY MUCH WORKED WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE AREA YOU KNOW, WHERE THE SHOOTING HAPPENED SOMETIMES YOU JUST CAN'T CONTROL, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU GET THAT CLOSE IN RANGE TO A GUNMAN A SHOOTER THERE

AGAIN THE SHOOTER HAS BEEN INJURED WE DON'T KNOW IF IT IS A SELF- INFLICTED WOUND OR IF IT CAME FROM THE COPS BUT HE IS IN CUSTODY RIGHT NOW >>> AND AFTER TWO HOURS, THANKFULLY, THE SEARCH FOR A SHOOTER IS OVER IT WAS VERY SCARY FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE

PARENTS WHO WORK HERE ON OUR STAFF WERE WORRIED ABOUT WHERE HE COULD HAVE GONE TO NEXT THEY WERE SEARCHES CREEKS AND WASHS AND HE HAD GONE IN THE DIRECTION OF A NEARBY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL YOU CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE FEAR GOING THROUGH ALL THE PARENTS' HEARTS, WATCHING TV AND WAITING FOR THE UPDATES THANKFULLY THE SHOOTER IS NO LONGER OUT THERE HE IS IN CUSTODY

HE IS BEING TREATED AT A LOCAL HOSPITAL WE DO KNOW THERE IS NO ACTIVE THREAT AT THE SCHOOL BUT OF COURSE, THERE IS STILL THE FALLOUT THERE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE WORRIED ABOUT THEIR CHILDREN BEING TREATED AT THE HOSPITAL RIGHT NOW >>> SOME OF THE SCHOOLS AREN'T TAKING ANY CHANCES, EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE A SUSPECT IN CUSTODY RIGHT NOW, ALL ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS IN SAUGUS UNION DISTRICT ARE STILL ON LOCKDOWN

A LOT OF TIME IT IS BECAUSE PEOPLE DON'T KNOW IF THERE ARE MORE SUSPECTS OR T THREE PEOPLE IN CRITICAL CONDITION, AND A TEACHER IS ONE OF THOSE WOUNDED IF YOU CAN AVOID THIS AREA, PLEASE DO SO PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO SHOW UP AND PARK THEIR CARS ANYWHERE AND IT IS BLOCKING ROADS THOSE EMERGENCY VEHICLES NEED TO GET IN AND OUT OF THIS AREA IF YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO, IF YOU CAN TEXT YOUR CHILD OR CHECK ON YOUR CHILD OR MAKE SURE THEY ARE OKAY, GIVE THEM A PHONE CALL, THAT IS A GOOD THING

OR IF YOU COULD HOLD OFF FOR A BIT UNTIL THEY GET THE SITUATION UNDER CELL I'M SURE THOSE KIDS WILL BE WELL TAKEN CARE OF WITH PLANE OF THE STAFF THERE ON HAND AT THE REUNIFICATION CENTER >>> THERE IS SOMEBODY ON THE PHONE NAMED JAKE JAKE, CAN YOU TELL US WHAT YOU SAW? >> SO AS I KIND OF CAME DOWN MULBERRY GLENN I SAW THE AMBULANCE PULLING AWAY FROM THE HOUSE OR A LOT OF CARS PULLING AWAY FROM THE HOUSE THEY TOOK DOWN THE YELLOW TAPE AND I SAW THE GARAGE DOOR CLOSING AND A GOOD FRIEND OF MIKE POMPEO THAT WORKS AT THE HOSPITAL TOLD ME THEY HAD SOMEBODY COME IN WITH A SELF- INFLICTED GUNSHOT WOUND TO THE HEAD AND THEY WERE LOSING HIM ON THE WAY TO THE HOSPITAL >> DID IT LOOK LIKE A STUDENT? >> I DIDN'T ACTUALLY SEE THE BODY OR ANYTHING

YOU CAN'T LET YOURSELF FALL BEHIND AND YOU KNOW, NOT GET YOUR BOUNDARIES DOWN BECAUSE THIS CAN HAPPEN LITERALLY TO ANYBODY >> THIS IS THE HOSPITAL ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE SCREEN IF YOU ARE WATCHING CAN YOU TAKE US THROUGH YOUR MORNING WHEN YOU FIRST NOTICED SOMETHING WAS WRONG?

I KNOW IT HAS BEEN A MINUTE SINCE YOU HAVE BEEN ON CAMPUS DO YOU KNOW ANY STUDENTS OR ARE ANY RELATIVES? >> YEAH, YOU KNOW I HAVE SOME FRIENDS THAT STILL HAVE SIBLINGS THERE

ONE OF HIM, I WAS TALKING TO SAID SHE WAS IN A CLOSET AND SCARED AND ALMOST MADE ME ANGRY BECAUSE I CAN'T GO HELP HER I CAN'T HELP ANYBODY YOU KNOW IN THIS SITUATION, IT IS HARD TO HEAR TO MY KNOWLEDGE EVERYBODY I KNOW IS OKAY AND SAFE

>>> WHERE ARE YOU NOW? >> I'M AT MY HOUSE RIGHT NOW >>> DID YOU GET ALERTS TO SHELTER IN PLACE? ABOUT 30 MINUTES AGO? >> NO I HAVEN'T GOTTEN ANYTHING >> THE SUSPECT IS IN CUSTODY I'M NOT SURE IF THERE COULD POSSIBLY BE MORE THAN ONE SUSPECT ALL WE ARE >>> WE HAVE A FEMALE WHO WAS BEING TREATED AND NOW WE ARE GETTING WORD THAT SHE HAS SINCE PASSED FROM HER INJURIES

>> THIS IS THE WORST FEAR WHEN WE COVER STORIES LIKE THIS, YOU HEAR ABOUT ONE PERSON SHOT IN THE LEG, THAT WAS ONE STUDENT BUT SOMEBODY LOSING THEIR LIFE IS JUST DEVASTATING ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE A PARENT WHO CANNOT GET IN TOUCH WITH YOUR DAUGHTER WHO GOES TO SAUGUS HIGH SCHOOL >> THAT IS HEARTBREAKING TO HEAR AGAIN, ONE FEMALE VICTIM HAS DIED AS A RESULT OF HER INJURIES FROM THIS INCIDENT THAT HAPPENED AROUND 7:30 SO WE WILL TRY TO KEEP YOU POSTED AND UPDATED ON THAT, I'M SURE WE WILL LEARN MORE, A NEWS CONFERENCE AROUND 10:00 SO WE WILL SEE IF THEY START ON TIME OR SHORTLY AFTER BUT WE SHOULD BE HEARING FROM AUTHORITIES, AT LEAST ONE FEMALE PATIENT HAS DIED AS A RESULT OF INJURIES>> THE LATEST TWEET FROM HENRY MAYO HOSPITAL WHICH HAS TAKEN IN THE VICTIMS OF THIS IS OUTDATED INFORMATION FOR THE OTHER VICTIMS THERE FOUR PATIENTS, THE FEMALE AND TWO MALES WERE IN CRITICAL CONDITION SO THERE TWO MORE MALES IN CRITICAL CONDITION ONE OTHER ADDITIONAL VICTIM IN GOOD CONDITION

>> JUST OUTSIDE OF THE HOSPITAL HEARING THE LATEST INFORMATION ONE VICTIM HAS NOW DIED THAT IS DEVASTATING>> DAD CAME IN MINUTES AGO, WE ARE HERE AT THE MEDIA ROOM AT THE HOSPITAL AND WE ARE EXPECTING KID TO GET ADDITIONAL INFORMATION THEY ARE WORKING TOGETHER DETAILS AS YOU MENTIONED WE KNOW THAT A FEMALE PATIENT HAS DIED AT THE HOSPITAL AND THREE MALES TWO CRITICAL ONE IN GOOD CONDITION WHEN WE PULLED INTO THE HOSPITAL WE SAW A HANDFUL OF DEPUTIES IN FRONT OF THE MAIN ENTRANCE OF THE HOSPITAL HARD TO TELL IF THERE WERE LOVED ONES, WE CANNOT SEE IF THERE IS ANYONE CRYING OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT BUT THERE IS LAW ENFORCEMENT PRESENT, THEY JUST STARTED BRINGING IN THE FIRST FEW PATIENTS AROUND 8:00 THIS MORNING SO SINCE THEN THAT FEMALE HAS DIED

I ASKED IF THEY WERE JUVENILES OR ADULTS, THE HOSPITAL IS WORKING TO GET THAT INFORMATION SO IT IS UNCLEAR IF THEY WERE STUDENT OR STAFF MEMBERS WE ARE HOPING TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE VICTIMS AS WE GET MORE INFORMATION THAT IS THE LATEST AS WE ARE WAITING HOPEFULLY FOR THE HOSPITAL SPOKESPERSON LATER TODAY>>> YOU HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO COVERAGE FROM TRAN TO LOS ANGELES ON THE SCHOOL SHOOTING AT SAUGUS HIGH SCHOOL I AM REENA NINAN IN NEW YORK, AT LEAST SIX PEOPLE HAVE BEEN INJURED AT THE SCHOOL IN SANTA CLARITA

OUR STATION IN LA HAS REPORTED ONE VICTIM DIED, THE MALE SUSPECT IS IN CUSTODY AND IS BEING TREATED FOR A SELF- INFLICTED GUNSHOT WOUND MANY OTHER SCHOOLS WERE ON LOCKDOWN BUT THOSE HAVE BEEN LIFTED, THE SCHOOL IS 40 MILES NORTH OF LOS ANGELES, THIS IS A DEVELOPING STORY AS THE SITUATION IS ACTIVE I WANT TO BRING IN JONATHAN VIGLIOTTI FROM SANTA CLARITA AND HOMELAND SECURITY CORRESPONDED FROM WASHINGTON, JONATHAN WHAT DO WE KNOW RIGHT NOW?>> WE ARE WAITING FOR A PRESS CONFERENCE IN THE NEXT FEW MINUTES, WE ARE OUTSIDE THE MAIN ENTRANCE TO SAUGUS HIGH SCHOOL WHERE YOU CAN SEE THERE IS A VERY ACTIVE POLICE PRESENCE, AT LAST COUNT 50 TO 60 POLICE CARS WE HAVE AMBULANCE AND FIRE TRUCKS AND OTHER FIRST RESPONDERS WE HAVE BEEN WATCHING WAVES OF STUDENTS WHO WERE SHELTERING IN PLACE HAVE BEEN ESCORTED OUT TAKING TO SCHOOL BUSES AND PUBLIC BUSES WHERE THEY ARE DRIVEN TO THE REUNIFICATION AREA SO PARENTS WHO ARE ANXIOUSLY AWAITING CAN MEET WITH THEIR CHILDREN

YOU CAN IMAGINE A LOT OF CONFUSION AS POLICE ARE HERE, THIS STARTED AT 7:30 THIS MORNING AS CLASSES WERE ABOUT TO START WE HEARD FROM ONE STUDENT WHO WAS DROPPED OFF, HE WAS WALKING INTO SCHOOL WHEN HE SAW A GROUP OF GIRLS RUNNING OUT SCREAMING THERE WAS A SHOOTER AT THE TIME HE SAID HE WAS CONFUSED AND DIDN'T KNOW IF HE SHOULD BELIEVE IT UNTIL HE SAW OTHER STUDENTS WE HEARD FROM STUDENTS INSIDE OF THE CLASSROOMS WHEN THEY HEARD THE GUNSHOTS, THEY DESCRIBED THE GUNFIRE AND THEIR TEACHERS TOLD HIM TO TAKE COVER UNDER THEIR DESKS, ANOTHER STUDENT WAS IN HER CHOIR CLASSROOM DESCRIBING A HARROWING MOMENT WHEN STUDENTS WERE BROUGHT IN WITH GUNSHOT WOUNDS, SHE DESCRIBED OTHER STUDENTS TRY TO HELP STOP THE BLEEDING, AS YOU HAVE MENTIONED SIX PEOPLE TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL TWO IN CRITICAL CONDITION AND WE HAVE REPORTS THAT ONE POSSIBLY DIED FROM THEIR WOUNDS

AS THIS UNFOLDS THERE WAS FOR A MOMENT A VERY ACTIVE AND NERVE- RACKING MANHUNT AS WE WERE DRIVING THERE WERE COP CARS AND AMBULANCES SCRAMBLING, POLICE THEN HONING IN ON THE HOME WHERE THE 15- YEAR-OLD STUDENT LIVED WE SAW SCENES OF FIREFIGHTERS AND POLICE SURROUNDING THE HOME ALSO LOOKING INTO A RAVINE THERE ARE REPORTS THAT HE HAS BEEN TAKEN INTO CUSTODY POSSIBLY WAS SELF-SUSTAINING GUNSHOT WOUNDS HE IS BEING TREATED AT A HOSPITAL

AS YOU LOOK AROUND THE AREA IT IS ON LOCKDOWN, THERE ARE HELICOPTERS OVER US AND IT'S UNCLEAR WHAT SEEN REMAINS IN THE SCHOOL IF THERE ARE OTHER FATALITIES ALL OF THIS AS WE WATCH THE SCHOOL SURROUNDED BY A NEIGHBORHOOD WE TALKED WITH ONE STUDENT WHO HAS BEEN TEXTING WITH HIS FRIEND ALL MORNING LONG STILL WAITING FOR A TEXT THAT HE IS OKAY A LOT OF ANXIETY AS THIS ACTIVE SCENE CONTINUES TO UNFOLD AT SAUGUS HIGH SCHOOL >> JONATHAN VIGLIOTTI THANK YOU

I WANT TO BRING IN JEFF PEGUES IT IS ONLY MINUTES WE HAVE HEARD THE SUSPECT WAS APPREHENDED WHAT ARE YOU HEARING FROM YOUR SOURCES? IS IT TOO EARLY TO TELL THE MOTIVE?>> IT IS TOO EARLY TO TELL WHAT THE MOTIVE MIGHT BE BUT INVESTIGATORS HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB TRACKING DOWN THE SUSPECT THEY KNOW WHO HE IS, HE IS BEING TREATED AT THE HOSPITAL SELF-INFLICTED GUNSHOT WOUND, FEDERAL INVESTIGATORS ARE HELPING OUT WITH THE INVESTIGATION YOU HAVE THE FBI, THE ATF, BUT THIS IS AN LA COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT INVESTIGATION AND THEY HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB IN TERMS OF RESPONDING TO THE SCENE

WE ARE BEING TOLD AT THIS POINT IT LOOKS LIKE THEY WERE ON THE SCENE QUICKLY IN UNDER TWO MINUTES WHICH IS A PRETTY EFFECTIVE RESPONSE, THIS IS SOMETHING THEY HAVE TRAINED FOR IN THE PAST AND THE TRAINING SEEMS TO HAVE POINT PICTURES OF STUDENTS BEING EVACUATED IN A VERY CONTROLLED MANNER AS THEY TRY TO REUNITE STUDENTS WITH PARENTS SO WHAT WE HAVE SEEN SO FAR, AT LEAST A TEXTBOOK RESPONSE TO THIS INCIDENT AS TRAGIC AND UNFORTUNATE AS IT IS, WE HAVE SEEN OVER THE LAST 20 YEARS IS LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES TRAINING FOR ISSUES LIKE THIS SO IF YOU ARE A PARENT TAKE SOME SOLACE IN KNOWING THAT>> JONATHAN YOU HAVE SOME NEW DETAILS TO REPORT?>> THAT IS CORRECT

HENRY MAYO HOSPITAL WHERE THE VICTIMS WERE TAKEN, ONE FEMALE VICTIM DID DIE AS A RESULT OF GUNSHOT WOUNDS SUSTAINED AT THE SCHOOL AND THEY WENT ON TO CLARIFY SOME OTHER VICTIMS TWO MALE VICTIMS IN CRITICAL úC AT THIS POINT GOING TO SURGERY ALL OF THIS AS WE ARE OUTSIDE THE SCHOOL, POLICE INSIDE, WE HAVE SEEN AMBULANCE STATION OUTSIDE NOT SURE WHAT'S GOING ON INSIDE WITH OTHER FATALITIES BUT THE LOCAL HOSPITAL WHERE SIX VICTIMS WERE TAKEN, AT LEAST ONE PERSON IN THE SHOOTING HAS DIED AS A RESULT OF INJURIES>> THIS REALLY STRIKES ME WATCHING THE COVERAGE OVER YOUR LEFT SHOULDER YOU CAN SEE THE HOUSES, JUST HOW THE SCHOOL IS RIGHT IN THE MIDST OF THIS RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD

WHAT HAS IT BEEN LIKE FOR FOLKS LIVING SO CLOSE TO THE SCHOOL?>> YOU CAN IMAGINE A LOT OF ANXIETY THIS IS A CLOSE KNIT COMMUNITY, A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO LIVE HERE HAVE CHILDREN WHO GO TO THE SCHOOL SO WHEN THE SCENE UNFOLDED THERE WERE HUNDREDS OF COP CARS AND FIRST RESPONDERS WITH A MOMENT OF WHAT'S GOING ON DISBELIEF THAT THE SCHOOL SHOOTING HAPPENED IN THE BACKYARD AND FEAR BECAUSE THE SUSPECTED GUNMAN WAS AT LARGE AND RUNNING AROUND AND AT THAT POINT POLICE HAD NO IDEA WHERE HE WAS THERE ARE PEOPLE WAITING FOR INFORMATION AND WE HAVE SPOKEN WITH PARENTS WHO HAVE BEEN IN TOUCH WITH THEIR CHILDREN BUT OTHERS ARE STILL WAITING TO BE REUNITED AND TO FIND OUT WHAT HAS UNFOLDED AND IF THEIR CHILDREN ARE SAFE>> I WAS SURPRISED TO HEAR STUDENTS WENT TO NEIGHBORING HOMES TO SEEK SHELTER WHEN THEY HEARD THE GUNFIRE AND PEOPLE TOOK THEM IN

DID THE SCHOOL HAVE A PLAN IN PLACE TO DEAL WITH THE STUDENTS IN THE EVENT OF A SHOOTING? HAVE STUDENTS TALKED ABOUT THAT?>> YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW INTENSE THIS WAS AS IT WAS FIRST HAPPENING WHEN SCHOOL WAS STARTING SO A LOT OF STUDENTS WERE NOT IN THEIR CLASSROOMS AND YOU ARE RIGHT KIDS WERE RUNNING INTO HOUSES AND RESIZE IMAGES OF KIDS JUMPING FENCES INSIDE OF THE SCHOOL PROPERTY BUT NOT IN THE CLASSROOM THE STUDENTS THAT WERE IN THEIR CLASSROOMS DESCRIBED A VERY EFFICIENT PLAN PUT IN PLACE THIS IS A SCHOOL LIKE MANY THAT DO ACTIVE SHOOTING SCENARIOS AND WHEN THE GUHOTSWERE HEARD SEVERAL STUDENTS SAID TEACHERS INSTRUCTED THEM TO TAKE SHELTER AND THEY LOCK THE DOORS YOU CAN IMAGINE THE TERRIFYING MOMENTS FOR STUDENTS INSIDE WITH THE TEACHERS AND THOSE THAT WERE LINGERING WAITING TO GO TO CLASS WHO HAD NO IDEA WHAT TO DO AND DID NOT HAVE AN AUTHORITY FIGURE OR ANYONE ELSE INSTRUCTING THEM SO THAT'S WHAT YOU ENDED UP SEEING, CHILDREN RUNNING IN WHATEVER DIRECTION THEY THOUGHT WERE SAFEST>> FASCINATING TO HEAR ABOUT THE AFTERMATH AS WE TRY TO LEARN AND MAKE SENSE OF THIS

I WANT TO BRING IN JEFF PEGUES, RUN THROUGH THE STEPS OF WHAT LAW ENFORCEMENT WILL BE DOING IN THE FOLLOWING HOURS AT THIS POINT? >> THAT WILL GO TO THE HOME, THEY WERE ABLE TO ZERO IN ON WHERE THE SUSPECT LIVES THEY WILL GO THROUGH THE HOME, LOOK THROUGH A CELL PHONE IF HE HAS ONE SO YOU GO TO THE CELL PHONE TO SEE WHAT HE WAS SAYING TO PEOPLE LEADING UP TO THE INCIDENT AND ALSO DOES HE HAVE A COMPUTER OR ELECTRONIC DEVICE THEY CAN SCAN FOR INFORMATION BECAUSE THEY WANT TO KNOW THE MOTIVE WHAT WAS IT THAT CAUSED THIS PERSON TO DO THIS AT THIS SCHOOL? WE HAVE REPORTED ON THIS RECENTLY ESPECIALLY THE SECRET SERVICE DID AN EXTENSIVE IN- DEPTH STUDY ON SCHOOL SHOOTINGS BETWEEN 2008 AND 2017 AND IN THE MAJORITY OF THESE CASES THE SHOOTERS ARE THE PEOPLE WHO CARRY THESE OUT SOMETIMES THEY HAPPEN WITH A SHARP OBJECT LIKE A KNIFE BUT THE SECRET SERVICE FOUND IN THE MAJORITY OF THE INCIDENTS THAT OFTEN THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN BULLIED OVER THE YEARS OR COULD IT BE THERE WAS A PROBLEM AT HOME THAT THE STUDENT HAS BEEN LIVING WITH? DIVORCE, SUBSTANCE ABUSE SO THERE ARE SEVERAL DIFFERENT SCENARIOS BUT THE SECRET SERVICE FOUND IN THEIR REPORT IS THAT THERE ARE SOME COMMONALITIES THAT PARENTS, SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS, LAW ENFORCEMENT CAN LOOK AT THIS TO PREVENT THESE THINGS FROM HAPPENING BECAUSE WHEN YOU LOOK AT LAW ENFORCEMENT THEY ARE REACTING TO THESE THINGS SO THE KEY IS TO FIGURE OUT WHAT LED UP TO THE INCIDENT AND THAT IS OBVIOUSLY WHAT LAW ENFORCEMENT WILL DO AS THEY TRY TO SEARCH FOR A MOTIVE>> WE HAVE SOME REACTION FROM STUDENTS WHO WERE INSIDE THE SCHOOL

I WANT TO PLAY WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY>> THIS MORNING SAUGUS HIGH SCHOOL WENT INTO EVACUATION, I WAS IN FIRST PERIOD WHEN WE HEARD SHOTS BEING FIRED WE HEARD A DISTINCT SOUND AND WENT INTO LOCKDOWN MODE WE WENT INTO PHOTO CALL TURNING OFF THE LIGHTS LOCKING THE DOORS BARRICADING THE DOORS AND WAITED TO BE UPDATED BY ADMINISTRATION>> WHAT WAS GOING THROUGH YOUR MIND?>> I WAS NOT EXPECTING THIS TODAY

I NEVER GOT TO SAY GOODBYE TO MY PARENTS>> WE WERE DOING A LESSON IN MY FIRST PERIOD GOVERNMENT CLASS AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THERE WAS A DISTINCTIVE SOUND SO MY TEACHER GOT UP LOCK THE DOOR ASKED THE STUDENTS TO GET THE KEYS SO WE REINFORCED IT AND THEN TURNED OFF THE LIGHTS AND GOT A BUNCH OF DESKS AND READING FIRST THE DOORS >> REACTION OF SOME OF THE STUDENTS IN THE SCHOOL AS THE SHOOTING TOOK PLACE JONATHAN VIGLIOTTI IS ON THE GROUND OUTSIDE OF THE SCHOOL SO WHAT IS THE MOOD AND THE SENSE ON THE GROUND NOW THAT WE ARE THREE HOURS INTO THIS?>> EVEN STILL A LOT OF ANXIETY ESPECIALLY AS YOU LOOK AT THE SCENE WITH AMBULANCES HERE AS SOME OF THEM ARE DISPERSING BUT THE COPS ARE HERE, THE AREA TAPED OFF THIS VICINITY WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS PART OF THE LOCKDOWN BECAUSE OF THE POLICE RESPONSE AND THERE IS A SENSE OF UNKNOWN, WHAT HAS ACTUALLY HAPPENED IN THE SCHOOL

WE KNOW THE SIX TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL, THE ONE GIRL CONFIRMED DIED AS A RESULT OF GUNSHOT WOUNDS AND THERE ARE OTHER VICTIMS INSIDE POSSIBLY FATALITIES THAT WE HAVE BEEN WATCHING AS THIS NEIGHBORHOOD IS JUST HERE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT HAS HAPPENED AND HOW THINGS MOVE FROM HERE A LOT OF RELIEF FROM THE FACT THAT THE SUSPECTED GUNMAN HAS BEEN TAKEN INTO POLICE CUSTODY NOW BEING TREATED AT THE HOSPITAL A CLOSE KNIT COMMUNITY ON EDGE AS WHO WOULDN'T BE WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE SCENE UNFOLDING AT A HIGH SCHOOL WITH A GREAT REPUTATION IN A GREAT NEIGHBORHOOD BUT LIKE SO MANY OTHERS, HIT WITH GUN VIOLENCE >> THE STUDENTS, HAVE ANY OF THEM SAID THEY MAY HAVE KNOWN THE SUSPECT OR HAVE ANY DETAILS ABOUT THIS SITUATION?>> NO, THAT IS A QUESTION A LOT OF REPORTERS HAVE BEEN ASKING AND WE DON'T HAVE A SENSE OF WHO THE GUNMAN IS WE KNOW THE DESCRIPTION, A 15- YEAR-OLD DRESSED IN ALL BLACK BUT NOBODY WE HAVE SPOKEN TO OR HEARD OF HAS BEEN ABLE TO IDENTIFY OR EVEN SAY THEY KNOW WHO IT MAY HAVE BEEN

OF COURSE THAT'S THE BIG QUESTION MOVING FORWARD AND WHAT THE MOTIVE IS WE CAN TELL YOU FROM THE ACCOUNTS WE HAVE HEARD MOVING FORWARD INTERESTING IN KNOWING THE WEAPON HE WAS USING, THEY DESCRIBED SLOW AND STEADY GUNSHOTS WANTS TO SAY THAT ONE STUDENT SAID THEY HEARD JUST TO MY GUNSHOTS BUT THAT'S ANOTHER QUESTION WHAT KIND OF WEAPON WAS HE USING AND HOW DID HE GET INTO THE SCHOOL? >> JONATHAN VIGLIOTTI FROM CALIFORNIA, WE ARE EXPECTING A LIVE PRESS CONFERENCE FROM POLICE AND WE ARE ON THE GROUND WAITING I WANT TO BRING IN JEFF PEGUES WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE NEXT FEW HOURS SO HOW DO THEY COORDINATE ON SOMETHING LIKE THIS? A LOCAL ISSUE GARNERING NATIONAL ATTENTION? >> I SOUND LIKE A BROKEN RECORD WHEN I SAY THIS BUT HAVE GOTTEN REALLY GOOD AT COORDINATION BETWEEN LOCAL AND FEDERAL AND JONATHAN WAS TALKING ABOUT THE WEAPON USED, THAT IS WHERE THE ATF WILL COME IN

THEY WILL BE ABLE TO SEARCH TO FIGURE OUT HOW THE WEAPON WAS PURCHASED OR HOW THE SUSPECT GOT HIS HANDS ON THE WEAPON SO THAT'S WHERE YOU HAVE THE COORDINATION BETWEEN LOCAL LIKE THE LA COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEARTMENT IS THE LEAD SO THE ATF AND FBI WILL TAKE A STEP BACK ASK THE LOCAL OFFICIALS WHAT THEY NEED IN TERMS OF SUPPORT AND THAT IS HOW THEY WILL COORDINATE SO OVER THE YEARS THEY HAVE GOTTEN REALLY GOOD AT SHARING INFORMATION BECAUSE THAT IS THE ONLY WAY TO PREVENT THESE THINGS FROM HAPPENING BUT ALSO IT SERVES TO GIVE THESE COMMUNITIES SOME SENSE OF CALM IN TERMS OF FIGURING OUT WHAT WAS IT THAT LED TO THE SITUATION? THERE WILL BE A LOT OF PARENTS AND SCHOOL OFFICIALS WHO HAVE, WHO ARE LOOKING FOR ANSWERS TO SO MANY QUESTIONS IN THE WAKE OF SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPENING THAT IS WHERE YOU HAVE THE EXPERIENCE OF FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AS WELL AS LA COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT WHICH IS AN EXPERIENCED WELL- RUN SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT IN TERMS OF RESPONSE TO THESE INCIDENTS SO THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING YOU CAN SEE WE ARE LOOKING AT A REUNIFICATION PROCESS WHERE THEY WANT TO REUNITE STUDENTS IN THE SCHOOL WITH THEIR PARENTS AND IT IS A DELICATE PROCESS BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY YOU HAVE TEENAGERS WHO ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR SAFETY AND ON THE OTHER HAND THE PARENTS WHO WANT TO SEE THEIR KIDS TO HAVE THIS CONTROLLED PROCESS THAT WE SEE UNFOLDING ON LIVE TV AT LEAST FROM THESE PICTURES UP ABOVE THE REUNIFICATION CENTER THAT HAS BEEN SET UP IN THE FIELD

>> THESE ARE LIVE IMAGES ON THE LEFT OF YOUR SCREEN WE ARE GETTING SOME OF THE REACTION FROM STUDENTS AT THE HIGH SCHOOL AND HOW THEY FELT AND THEIR THOUGHTS SHORTLY AFTER>> WHAT DID YOU HEAR AS YOU ARE GETTING CLOSE TO THE CAMPUS? >> TWO OR THREE GUNSHOTS AND EVERYONE STARTED RUNNING OUT FROM THE ENTRANCE>> WHAT DID IT SOUND LIKE AT FIRST?>> LIKE A BIG BALLOON POPPING AND THEN EVERYONE STARTED RUNNING IT HAPPENED NEAR THE GYM NEAR THE ENTRANCE WHEN YOU WALK IN

>> AT THAT TIME WERE THERE A LOT OF PEOPLE AROUND?>> THERE WAS A GOOD AMOUNT OF PEOPLE COMING IN BECAUSE THAT'S WHEN PEOPLE GET HERE TO START SCHOOL THE FIRST PERIOD STARTS MAYBE 15 MINUTES AFTER IT HAPPENED >> NOW JONATHAN VIGLIOTTI AT THE SCHOOL, GIVE US A SENSE WHAT YOU ARE HEARING ESPECIALLY IN THE COMING HOURS THERE WERE OTHER SCHOOLS UNDER LOCKDOWN ARE THEY CONCERNED OR DO THEY THINK IT WAS ONE SUSPECT? >> A NUMBER OF SCHOOLS WERE ON LOCKDOWN, ONE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IS ON LOCKDOWN AND WE IMAGINE THAT WILL BE LIFTED AT ANY MOMENT AS WE ARE GETTING WORD THAT THE SUSPECT HAS BEEN TAKEN INTO CUSTODY OUTSIDE OF SAUGUS HIGH SCHOOL A HEAVY POLICE PRESENCE BUT WE DID SEE THE AMBULANCES GATHERED AT THE MAIN ENTRANCE LEAVING IN THE PAST FEW MINUTES AS WE HAVE BEEN REPORTING TO YOU, WE ARE NOT SURE WHAT THAT MEANS

THE TAPE IS UP, POLICE ARE OUT AS THEY CONTINUE TO ALSO INVESTIGATE WHAT IS UNFOLDING INSIDE AT THIS POINT IT IS UNCLEAR HOW MANY FATALITIES WE DO KNOW WHERE SIX OF THE VICTIMS WERE TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL ONE FEMALE VICTIM DIED AS A RESULT OF GUNSHOT WOUNDS THERE IS A PRESS CONFERENCE SHORTLY, WE HOPE TO LEARN A LOT MORE INFORMATION FROM THAT PRESS CONFERENCE IN THE PAST 15 MINUTES OR SO WE HAVE SEEN STUDENTS BEING BROUGHT OUT

UP UNTIL 15 MINUTES AGO HOURS AFTER THE SHOOTING TOOK PLACE WE HAVE SEEN HUNDREDS OF STUDENTS WHO WERE INSIDE SHELTERING IN PLACE BEING ESCORTED TO SCHOOL BUSES AND PUBLIC BUSES TAKING THEM TO THE REUNIFICATION AREA WHERE PARENTS ARE WAITING ANXIOUSLY TO MEET THEIR CHILDREN A LOT IS UNKNOWN, THERE IS A SENSE OF RELIEF THAT THE SUSPECT HAS BEEN TAKEN INTO CUSTODY, THIS AREA ON LOCKDOWN, WE BELIEVE THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IS STILL PART OF THE LOCKDOWN BUT IT SHOULD BE LIFTED SHORTLY IT IS UNCLEAR WHEN THE LOCKDOWN WILL BE LIFTED>> WE ARE STANDING BY READY FOR THAT POLICE NEWS CONFERENCE WHERE WE COULD LEARN MORE DETAILS JEFF PEGUES I WANT TO TURN BACK TO YOU, WHEN YOU SEE SOMETHING LIKE THIS THERE IS ALWAYS THE FEAR OF COPYCATS SO WHAT IS HAPPENING ACROSS THE NATION PARTICULARLY WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT? SHOULD OTHER SCHOOLS BE CONCERNED?>> IN THIS DAY AND AGE OTHER SCHOOLS ARE ALREADY CONCERNED

WE DON'T HAVE TO SEE ANOTHER ONE OF THESE INCIDENTS FOR OFFICIALS ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO BE CONSIDERED THIS IS SOMETHING SADLY THAT THEY HAVE TO TRAIN FOR AND THEY HAVE BEEN DOING YOU KNOW WHAT WE FOUND BASED ON THE PEOPLE WE TALK TO ON THE SUBJECT AND BE DONE EXTENSIVE REPORTING ON THE SUBJECT, WHAT IS NOW A FOCUS OF LAW ENFORCEMENT IS HOW TO GIVE PARENTS, SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS, PUBLIC OFFICIALS THE SIGNS TO KNOW WHAT TO LOOK FOR BEFORE ONE OF THESE INCIDENTS HAPPENS BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY THEY ARE HAPPENING WE SEE THEM HAPPENING ALMOST WEEKLY AND THAT IS A SAD SITUATION BUT THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS THE FOCUS IS NOW HOW CAN WE GIVE PEOPLE THE TOOLS THEY NEED SO WHEN THEY SEE SOMETHING THAT IS POTENTIALLY CONCERNING THEY NOTIFY OFFICIALS OR THEY SHARE THE INFORMATION WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT BECAUSE IF YOU LOOK AT PARKLAND, FLORIDA AND THE SCHOOL SHOOTING NEVER MISSED SIGNS AND YOU WILL HAVE LAW ENFORCEMENT, YOU'LL HAVE OFFICIALS AND PARENTS ACKNOWLEDGING THAT SO HOW DO YOU BUILD FROM THAT? THE THING IS TO GIVE PEOPLE LITTLE THINGS THEY CAN NOTICE IN A STUDENT AND THEIR BEHAVIOR THAT THEY CAN THEN TAKE TO SOMEONE, SHARE THE INFORMATION IT DOES NOT MEAN SO-AND-SO WILL GET IN TROUBLE WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT OR SCHOOL OFFICIALS BUT IT'S MORE INFORMATION THAT CAN BE SHARED IN A COMMUNITY TO PREVENT THESE SCENES FROM UNFOLDING

AS I SAID EARLIER LAW ENFORCEMENT CAN RESPOND IN UNDER TWO MINUTES BUT YOU ARE STILL GOING TO HAVE BLOODSHED AND THIS APPEARS TO BE WHAT HAPPENED TODAY, LAW ENFORCEMENT WAS QUICK TO THE SCENE BUT YOU STILL HAD BLOODSHED SO YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT HOW DO WE PREVENT THESE SITUATIONS FROM ESCALATING TO THIS POINT WHERE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT IT ON TELEVISION THERE HAVE BEEN STUDIES DONE BUT THE SECRET SERVICE STUDY IS THE LATEST IN WHAT THE SECRET SERVICE BELIEVES IS THE MOST IN- DEPTH BECAUSE WHAT THEY HAVE DONE, THEY USE THE TECHNIQUES, THE ANALYTICS, TO PREVENT IN PREVENTING THREATS TO PUBLIC OFFICIALS, THE SECRET SERVICE MOST PEOPLE THINK THIS IS THE AGENCY THAT COVERS PUBLIC OFFICIALS, IN CHARGE OF THE SAFETY OF THE PRESIDENT SO THEY HAVE TAKEN THE ANALYSIS THAT THEY USE TO PREVENT THREATS FROM REACHING SOME OF THEY PROTECT AND THEY ARE USING THAT TYPE OF ANALYSIS TO TRY TO PREVENT THESE TYPES OF SCHOOL ú LONG STORY SHORT THAT IS WHERE THE FOCUS IS NOW YOU AND I HAVE PROBABLY LOST COUNT OF THE NUMBER OF SCHOOL SHOOTINGS THAT WE HAVE SEEN AND HAVE COVERED OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS AND THERE IS THE CONCERN OF POTENTIAL COPYCAT SCENARIOS SO THAT IS SOMETHING LAW ENFORCEMENT IS AWARE OF AGAIN IT PUTS THE ONUS ON PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY TO SPEAK UP WHEN THEY SEE SOMETHING, CALL THE FBI OR LOCAL POLICE WHEN THEY SEE A TROUBLING SIGN

MAY BE A STUDENT WHO APPEARS TO BE DESCENDING INTO DISTRESS THAT MAY ULTIMATELY PLAY OUT INTO A SITUATION LIKE THIS BECAUSE THERE IS ACCESS TO A WEAPON OR THERE SOMETHING THEY SAID OR THEY HAVE WRITTEN IN A DIARY OR ON A PIECE OF PAPER OR IN A TEXT SO THERE ARE ALWAYS SIGNS OUT THERE AND IF YOU LOOK AT LAW ENFORCEMENT WITH TERRORISM THEY SAY IF YOU SEE SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING, WELL NOW THAT APPLIES TO THESE SITUATIONS>> WE ARE FOLLOWING THE ONGOING SHOOTING ATTACK THAT TOOK PLACE AS POLICE SAY THEY HAVE A SUSPECT IN CUSTODY ONE FEMALE PATIENT HAS DIED, TWO OTHERS ARE IN CRITICAL CONDITION AND ONE PATIENT IN GOOD CONDITION I WANT TO THANK JEFF PEGUES AND JONATHAN VIGLIOTTI

WE ARE STANDING BY WAITING FOR A PRESS CONFERENCE WHERE POLICE WILL HOPEFULLY UPDATE US WITH NEW DETAILS FOR NOW BACK TO LIVE COVERAGE OF CBSN LOS ANGELES >> WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT CONCERN RIGHT NOW? YOUR CURRENT CONCERN >> I WANT TO LET THE PARENTS KNOW THE AFFECTED STUDENTS, THEY HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED AND THEY ARE ON THE SCENE WITH THEIR LOVED ONES, THE REMAINING STUDENTS ARE FINE AND WELL WE JUST HAVE TO MATCH STUDENTS WITH THEIR PARENTS

OTHER SCHOOLS IN THE AREA THAT WERE LOCKED DOWN THAT WILL BE UP TO THE LOCAL DISTRICT WHEN THEY RESUME OPERATION BUT THE THREAT HAS BEEN ELIMINATED>> OKAY SHERIFF THANK YOU FOR JOINING US WE KNOW YOU HAVE A NEWS CONFERENCE ABOUT TO GET UNDERWAY SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH>> WE ARE GOING TO THE HOSPITAL WHERE THE VICTIMS ARE BEING TREATED AND IT WAS ANNOUNCED ONE OF THE VICTIMS HAS DIED>> WE ARE HERE AT THE HENRY MAYO HOSPITAL IN THE MEDIA ROOM WHERE WE EXPECT A PRESS CONFERENCE AT 11:00

I WANT TO BRING IN THE PIO, CAN YOU GO OVER THE VICTIMS THAT ARE HERE?>> FOUR PATIENTS SORRY TO SAY THAT ONE IS DECEASED, A FEMALE WE HAVE THREE MALE PATIENTS, TWO IN CRITICAL CONDITION AND ONE IN GOOD CONDITION>> I KNOW YOU CANNOT CONFIRM IF THE SHOOTER IS HERE BUT IS THIS THE MAIN HOSPITAL IN THE AREA WHERE IN THE SITUATION THE VICTIMS WOULD BE BROUGHT?>> I CANNOT CONFIRM THE SHOOTERS HERE, WE ARE THE ONLY HOSPITAL IN THE VALLEY AND WE ARE A TRAUMA CENTER SO WE ARE EQUIPPED FOR THIS>> FOR A SITUATION LIKE THIS YOU SAY THE HOSPITAL IS STAFFED BUT THEY ALSO HAVE PRACTICES AND DRILLS SO GIVE US SOME INFORMATION ON THAT>> WE HAVE THE INCIDENT COMMAND CENTER SET UP WHEN THINGS LIKE THIS HAPPEN, WE DRILL FOR THAT TWO OR THREE TIMES A YEAR WE HAVE DISASTER RESPONSE THAT HELPS US PRACTICE SO WE ARE PREPARED

>> WHO CAN WE EXPECT TO HEAR FROM AT 11:00 AND WHAT SORT OF INFORMATION SHOULD WE EXPECT?>> WE HAVE THE CHIEF CLINICAL OFFICER FOR THE HOSPITAL WHO SHOULD BE ABLE TO GIVE YOU MORE INFORMATION>> THANK YOU SO MUCH AS YOU JUST HEARD A NEWS CONFERENCE AT 11:00, DR LARRY KIDD THE CHIEF CLINICAL OFFICER WILL BE GIVING DETAILS ON THE PATIENT'S, AT THIS POINT ONE FEMALE HAS DIED, THREE MALE VICTIMS ARE BEING TREATED, TWO MEDICAL AND ONE IN GOOD CONDITION THE PATIENT STARTED COMING IN AROUND 8:00 THIS MORNING SO IT HAS BEEN ALL HANDS ON DECK

SINCE IT IS NOT A LARGER SHOOTING THEY DO HAVE ENOUGH RESOURCES SO THEY DON'T HAVE TO CALL NEIGHBORING HOSPITALS AND NURSES AND DOCTORS SO THEY ARE PREPARED AND THEY HAVE ENOUGH RESOURCES THAT IS THE LATEST, WE WILL BRING YOU UPDATES AS WE GET THEM>>> THE LATEST NUMBERS ON THIS SHOOTING ONE FEMALE PATIENT CONFIRMED DEAD, FIVE PEOPLE INJURED, TWO IN CRITICAL CONDITION WE DON'T HAVE A NUMBER ON TEACHERS OR STUDENTS BUT ACCORDING TO ONE OF THE STUDENTS A TEACHER WAS WOUNDED, THE SHOOTER IS IN CUSTODY

THE SHERIFF WOULD NOT DESCRIBE THE EXTENT OF THE INJURY BUT HE DID SAY THE THREAT IS OVER AND THE SHOOTER IS A 15-YEAR-OLD MALE WHO WAS A SAUGUS HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT >> WE ARE AT THE CHURCH JUST DOWN THE STREET FROM THE HIGH SCHOOL AND ADAM IS WITH ME A BISHOP AND HE IS A PARENT, YOU HAVE CLASSES WITH SOME SAUGUS HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN THE MORNING RIGHT? >> YES, WE OFFER SEMINARY CLASSES FOR ALL THE YOUTH AND THE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS AND TYPICALLY IT IS THE ONE HOUR BEFORE HIGH SCHOOL STARTS SO WE HAD ABOUT 50 STUDENTS THIS MORNING AND THEY WERE IN THREE DIFFERENT CLASSES>> YOUR DUGHTER WAS ONE OF THOSE SO DID SHE TELL YOU SOMETHING WAS HAPPENING FIRST?>> I WAS ON MY WAY TO WORK I AM A PROFESSOR AT COLLEGE OF THE CANYONS AND MY DAUGHTER TEXTED ME SHE TRIED TO GET A HOLD OF HER MOTHER BUT SHE WAS NOT AVAILABLE SO I TOLD HER TO STAY CALM AND STAY WITH THE TEACHERS, TO NOT DO ANYTHING OR LEAVE>> WHEN YOU WERE COMING OVER HERE WHAT WAS THE THOUGHT PROCESS? YOUR HOLDING A COUPLE POSITIONS BECAUSE YOU ARE A FATHER AND YOU ARE A BISHOP AND YOU WANT TO BE OF HELP

>> WELL ACTUALLY I STARTED TO TEACH MY FIRST CLASS AT THE COLLEGE, I GOT HALFWAY THROUGH AND COULD NOT FOCUS AND MY WIFE WAS CALLING ME ON THE PHONE SO I HAD TO CANCEL THE CLASS AND COME HERE AND JUST HELP OUT AND MAKE SURE EVERYBODY WAS OKAY GETTING ON THE BUSES TO GET OVER TO CENTRAL PARK WE ARE KIND OF A SANCTUARY HERE, WE HAD HUNDREDS OF STUDENTS COME FROM THE HOSPITAL ON THEIR WAY TO THE BUSES AND THE PARK>> CAN YOU TALK ABOUT WHAT YOU WERE SEEING, HOW STUDENTS AND STAFF WERE EMOTIONALLY PROCESSING WHAT THEY SAW AND WHAT THEY WITNESSED?>> I THINK EVERYBODY WAS SHAKING FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND THIS EVENT HAPPENED IN THE CHORUS OR THE BAND ROOM AT THE HIGH SCHOOL AND TWO OF OUR STUDENTS WHO GO TO CHURCH HERE WERE THE ADJACENT ROOM AND HEARD THE SHOTS I HAVE BEEN SENDINGEMAIL TO MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH TO ASK THEM TO STAY CALM AND TO BE HELPFUL TO EACH OTHER IT HAS BEEN DIFFICULT, WE HAD THE FIRES LAST MONTH AND HALF OF THE CONGREGATION WAS UNDER MANDATORY EVACUATION SO WE ARE HUSTLING AROUND MAKING SURE EVERYBODY IS OKAY DURING THAT AND THEN TO GET THIS THIS MORNING IS KIND OF DEVASTATING

SO YOU KNOW PEOPLE ARE NERVOUS >> WE WERE JUST SAYING THIS IS A SCHOOL THAT HAD BEEN GOING THROUGH DRILLS, HAVING THIS HAPPENED I'M SURE YOU NEVER THOUGHT THOSE SKILLS WOULD BE PUT IN USE BUT HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THAT NOW?>> WE APPRECIATE THE TEACHERS AND THE EMERGENCY PREPARATION HAPPENING I THINK THAT HELPS PEOPLE, THE DUCK AND COVER OR STAY IN PLACE AND ACTIVE SHOOTER AND BLOCK THE DOORS SO WE ARE PREPARED AND THANK GOODNESS, PERHAPS IT COULD HAVE BEEN WORSE >> I APPRECIATE YOU JOINING US WE ALL KNOW THERE'S ONE PART HAPPENING TODAY AND OF COURSE THE FOCUS ON THE PEOPLE IN THE HOSPITAL THAT ARE INJURED BUT WITH ALL THE COMMUNITY AFFECTED AND THE PROCESS OF RECOVERING AND TRYING TO DEAL WITH WHAT HAPPENED IS GOING TO BE A LONG PROCESS BUT THIS COMMUNITY SEEMS TIGHTKNIT AND THEY ARE LOOKING OUT FOR EACH OTHER

>> EARLIER WE HAD A CHANCE TO SPEAK WITH STUDENTS WHO JUST LEFT THE SCHOOL AND THEY TOLD US ABOUT WHAT ONE OF THEIR FRIENDS HAD SOUGHT >> A FEW OF THE GIRLS SAW IT HAPPENED AND THEY WERE CRYING AND THEY SAID THEY SAW TWO PEOPLE GO DOWN>> IT TOOK US A MINUTE TO PROCESS WE NEED TO RUN>> LIKE THEY SAID YOU NEVER THINK IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN AND THEN YOU GET THIS FEELING AND YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIED JUST THE SOUND OF THE GUN IS IT IS TOO REAL

TERRIFYING IT WAS HORRIBLE>> I DON'T EVEN WANT TO KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE>> THIS SHOWS HOW CLOSE KNIT, NOT JUST THE COMMUNITY BUT SOUTHLAND IN GENERAL, THE YOUNG LADY ON THE RIGHT IS THE STEPDAUGHTER OF ONE OF OUR PHOTOGRAPHERS, SHE IS ON THE SWIM TEAM, HER LITTLE BROTHER IS IN THE BAND AT SAUGUS HIGH SCHOOL WE KNOW MEMBERS OF THE HIGH SCHOOL BAND WERE UNDER LOCKDOWN STUCK INSIDE THE ROOM

YOU CAN SEE THE BACKPACKS, THIS IS ONE LOCATION WHERE THEY WERE TREATING SOMEBODY THIS MORNING WE SAW FIRE OFFICIAL DOING CHEST COMPRESSIONS>> A LOT OF TIMES THEY TELL YOU TO DROP YOUR BACKPACKS AND LEAVE EVERYTHING SO THEY CAN SEE EVERYTHING AND HAVE YOUR HANDS UP AS YOU ARE ESCORTED BUT THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT WAS TOUGH TO WATCH WHEN WE SAW THOSE FIRST RESPONDERS TREATING ONE OF THE VICTIMS WAS CPR ON THE SCENE EARLIER THIS MORNING WE ARE AWAITING A NEWS CONFERENCE, EXPECTED TO START AT 10:00 NOW IT IS 10:30 AND IT SHOULD BE STARTING AT SOME POINT, NOW POSSIBLY 11:00

THERE THEY WILL BE LOOKING INTO THIS MASSIVE INVESTIGATION AS A RESULT OF THE SCHOOL SHOOTING AT SAUGUS HIGH SCHOOL IF YOU'RE JUST JOINING US WE DO KNOW ONE OF THE VICTIMS THAT WAS INJURED HAS NOW DIED FROM HER INJURIES THE AGE AND THE NAME NOT RELEASED OF COURSE PROBABLY TRYING TO REACH NEXT OF KIN TO MAKE SURE THEY HAVE THAT TOGETHER BUT THE SHOOTER IS NOW IN CUSTODY AND ALSO SUFFERED INJURIES, THE SHERIFF WOULD NOT ELABORATE ON THE INJURIES BUT OF COURSE HE DID SAY THE SHOOTER IS NOW IN CUSTODY AND WAS 15 OR 16>> 15

WE TALKED WITH A NEIGHBOR WHO SAW SOMEBODY LEAVING THE AREA WHO APPEARED TO BE BLEEDING FROM THEIR HEAD SO WE DON'T KNOW IF THAT WAS THE SHOOTER FOR SURE BUT HE SAID HE HEARD HELICOPTERS RIGHT OVER HIS HOUSE ON SYCAMORE LANE, THE STREET WHERE THE SHOOTER ALLEGEDLY LIVED>> THAT IS ACCORDING TO THE PEOPLE WHO KNOW OF THE SHOOTER AND MAY HAVE GONE TO SCHOOL WITH HIM BUT WE HAVE A NUMBER OF PEOPLE BEING TREATED AT THE HOSPITAL ONE OF THEM IS STILL IN CRITICAL CONDITION THE SHERIFF CONFIRMED THAT, SO A DIRE SITUATION THIS WAS 2300 STUDENTS AND THEN WHEN YOU ADD THE STAFF AND TEACHERS AND OTHER OFFICIALS ROUGHLY NEARLY 3000 PEOPLE ON CAMPUS AT THE TIME EARLY THIS MORNING ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE IN FIRST PERIOD SO THIS WAS THE BEGINNING OF WHAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A NORMAL SCHOOL DAY FOR THESE KIDS

>> I HAVE A TWEET FROM THE UNDERSHERIFF WITH THE LA SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT THIS IS SOMETHING PARENTS DON'T WANT TO HEAR BUT THEY WILL UNDERSTAND WE NEED TO INTERVIEW EVERY STUDENT AT SAUGUS HIGH SCHOOL BEFORE THEY CAN BE RELEASED WE NEED TO CONDUCT A THOROUGH INVESTIGATION AND APOLOGIZE FOR THE WEIGHT YOU CAN IMAGINE MORE THAN 2000 STUDENTS, THEY HAVE TO INTERVIEW EVERYONE

ALSO IT IS AN IMPORTANT CONVERSATION FOR PARENTS TO HAVE WITH THEIR CHILDREN I HAVE SEEN TEXT MESSAGES FROM SOME OF MY PARENT FRIENDS AND THEIR KIDS HEARD TALK OF A SCHOOL SHOOTING BUT CASUALLY IT IS SPOKEN ABOUT BECAUSE PEOPLE TALK ABOUT SCHOOL SHOOTINGS AND IT SEEMED LIKE THE KIDS HAD NOT TAKEN IT SERIOUSLY AND IN THE AFTERMATH NOW YOU HAVE AN ENTIRE SCHOOL WHERE THE KIDS ARE TRAUMATIZED, ALL OF THEM HAVE TO BE INTERVIEWED SO THAT IS SOMETHING PARENTS SHOULD BE TALKING ABOUT WITH KIDS TONIGHT IF YOU HAVE A THREAT TELL AN ADULT BECAUSE WE COULD PREVENT SOMETHING LIKE THAT I CAN HEAR IT IN THE SHERIFF'S VOICE HE WAS SO FRUSTRATED AND HARD BROKEN, THIS IS NOT THE SITUATION THEY WANT TO DEAL WITH THEY WOULD RATHER TALK TO OR GET SOMEBODY IN CUSTODY WHO MIGHT POSE A THREAT

>> AUTHORITIES TALK TO EVERY STUDENT AND SOMEONE SAID WHY? AND THE POLICE SAY THEY COULD BE A WITNESS OR PROVIDE IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE SHOOTER OR A MOTIVE SO THEY WANT TO SEE IF THERE WAS SOME TYPE OF ENCOUNTER YOU TALK ABOUT THE KIDS HOW THEY PARTICIPATE IN SNAPCHAT AND OTHER GROUP CHATS AND SOMEONE MENTIONED THEY MAY HAVE BEEN MADE AWARE OF SOMETHING LIKE THIS POSSIBLY HAPPENING WHICH IS FRIGHTENING BECAUSE WHEN YOU HEAR THAT ESPECIALLY IN THIS DAY AND AGE IF A COWORKER OR STUDENT SAYS SOMETHING CRAZY YOU WANT TO IMMEDIATELY GO TO THE AUTHORITIES>> YES AND NOW THIS IS WHAT WE ARE DEALING WITH ONE YOUNG LADY WE HAVE HEARD HAS PASSED AWAY TODAY WE DON'T KNOW IF IT'S A TEACHER OR STUDENT FOR SURE THAT THE CLINIC RELEASED THAT INFORMATION

SEVERAL ARE BEING TREATED FOR GUNSHOT WOUNDS AND THE SUSPECT THE ONLY SILVER LINING IS THE SHOOTING THREAT IS OVER BUT OF COURSE NOW THE AFTERMATH AND A COMMUNITY FOREVER CHANGED IT REMINDS ME WHEN WE WERE DEALING WITH THE SCHOOL SHOOTING IN THOUSAND OAKS, AT THE TIME ONE OF THE SAFEST COMMUNITIES IN THE COUNTRY AND THEN THE SCENE OF A TERRIBLE SHOOTING EVERY COMMUNITY IS NEVER SAFE, NO MATTER HOW SAFE IT SEEMS ON THE OUTSIDE JUST ONE PERSON CAN CREATE DESTRUCTION>> WHAT A CRIME SCENE WE WERE WATCHING THIS MORNING JUST THE WHOLE AREA SWARMED BY POLICE TRYING TO GET THE SITUATION UNDER CONTROL LET'S HEAR FROM THE PARENTS OF A STUDENT WHO WITNESSED THE SHOOTING

[ SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE ] >>> YOU BEEN LISTENING TO AN UPDATE IN SANTA CLARITA, CALIFORNIA, WHERE POLICE HAVE BEEN GIVING NEW DETAILS AND WE DO KNOW AT THIS HOUR THAT STEEN- YEAR-OLD MALE ASIAN SUSPECT IS CURRENTLY IN CUSTODY AND FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE IN THE HOSPITAL HIS MOTHER IS SPEAKING TO DETECTIVES, AS WELL AS HIS GIRLFRIEND, ACCORDING TO POLICE AND THERE ARE FIVE STUDENTS IN MULTIPLE HOSPITALS AND WE ALSO KNOW THERE WAS A PARTIAL EVACUATION EARLY THIS MORNING AT THE SCHOOL WITH SOME STUDENTS REMAINING IN LOCKDOWN AND THEY ARE SLOWLY RELEASING THE STUDENTS THROUGHOUT THE AFTERNOON AND WE KNOW THE WEAPON THAT HE USED, A 45- CALIBER SEMI-AUTOMATIC WEAPON AND THERE WERE NO MORE ROUNDS LEFT INSIDE THE GUN BY THE TIME THE DEADLY SHOOTING TOOK PLACE I BRING IN CHIEF JUSTICE AND HOMELAND SECURITY CORRESPONDENT, JEFF PEGUES, JOINING US IN WASHINGTON AND JAMIE YUCCAS, AS WELL PAUL VIOLA IS THE SECURITY ANALYST AND THERE IS A HOST OF SECURITY MATTERS ON CBS NEWS

WE KNOW THE DETAILS HAVE COME DOWN WHAT WILL POLICE BE DOING IN THE COMING HOURS, AT THIS POINT? >> Reporter: RIGHT NOW, IT'S ABOUT PROSECUTORIAL PREPARATION AND WHAT I MEAN, YOU HAVE TO BREAK THIS DOWN TO UNDERSTAND THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT HAS TO PREPARE A CASE THAT WILL PRESENT TO THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY FOR PROSECUTION EVERY SINGLE COMPONENT HAS TO BE METHODICAL IT GOES TO THE UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THE SHERIFF WAS TALKING ABOUT, THE NEED TO INTERVIEW ALL THE STUDENTS WE UNDERSTAND THEIR PARENTS WANT THEIR KIDS BACK AND THAT'S UNDERSTANDABLE BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY, AS LAW ENFORCEMENT, WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT WE IDENTIFY ANY POSSIBLE INFORMATION THAT'S OUT THERE, RELATIVE TO WHAT MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE BEEN FORESEEABLE

THERE MAY HAVE BEEN THINGS THE SHOOTERS SAID 88% OF SHOOTERS ENCOURAGE LEAKAGE AND THEY BRAG ABOUT GET EVEN PLANS LAW ENFORCEMENT WILL SECURE THOSE SEARCH WARRANTS AND WON'T LOOK AT ANYTHING UNTIL THEY HAVE THOSE SEARCH WARRANTS THEY WILL THEN PROCEED TO THE HOME AND PROCEED TO THE DEVICES AND AT THAT POINT, INFORMATION WILL BE COLLECTED AND DISSEMINATED AMONG THE DISSEMINATING TEAM AND PART OF IT WILL GO TO SOCIAL MEDIA AND PART OF IT WILL BE TO WHAT WAS IN THE HOUSE AND SOME OF IT WILL BE EMAILS AND COMMUNICATION HOW DID HE GET THE WEAPON? DID HE COLLABORATE WITH ANYBODY OR TALK TO ANYBODY? LAST BUT NOT LEAST, THE EXAMINATION OF CLOSED CIRCUIT TV CAMERAS AND IF POSSIBLE, ANY TYPE OF FACIAL RECOGNITION IN ORDER TO RULE OUT, COMPLETELY, THAT HE WASN'T WORKING WITH OUR DIDN'T PLAN THIS WITH ANYBODY ELSE

ALL OF THIS IS GOING SIMULTANEOUSLY, AS WE SIT BACK AND START WATCHING THIS UNOLD IN THE HOURS AND DAYS TO COME >> I TURNED TO JAMIE YUCCAS ON THE GROUND IN LOS ANGELES WE HEARD POLICE SAY THAT THEY DETECTIVES ARE CURRENTLY SPEAKING TO THE GIRLFRIEND OF THE SUSPECT AND HIS MOTHER WHAT MORE DO WE KNOW? >> Reporter: WHAT WAS INTERESTING WAS THAT TODAY IS ALSO HIS BIRTHDAY IT HAS BEEN A CHAOTIC MORNING AS WE WORK TO UNRAVEL THESE DETAILS AND WE KEPT HEARING A 15-YEAR-OLD SUSPECT, ASIAN MALE, AND TODAY, WE LEARNED IT WAS HIS BIRTHDAY

>> I WANT TO INTERRUPT YOU BECAUSE THE SHERIFF IS BACK SPEAKING IN ENGLISH >> I WANT TO PAUSE IT FOR A SECOND >> THE INVESTIGATORS LOOKED AT THE SURVEILLANCE VIDEO FROM THE SCHOOL, NOT SELF VIDEO THEY WATCHED IT >> I WANT TO UPDATE ONE THING WE JUST RECEIVED WORD THAT ONE OF THE 14-YEAR-OLD VICTIMS AT THE HOSPITAL HAS ALSO PASSED AWAY, JUST MOMENTS AGO

SO, OUR FATALITIES ARE NOW TWO WITH A HEAVY HEART, WE WILL MOVE FORWARD WITH THE INVESTIGATION TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WENT WRONG AND I HATE TO HAVE SAUGUS BE ADDED TO THE NAMES OF COLUMBINE, PARKLAND, SANDY HOOK BUT, IT'S A REALITY THAT AFFECTS US ALL IN THE NATION IS SOMETHING WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH AS CAPTAIN LEWIS SAID, WE'VE GOT TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WE ARE DOING WRONG AND HOW TO STOP THIS FROM HAPPENING IN THE FUTURE WE WILL FIGURE IT OUT, OVER TIME

>> ONE FEMALE DECEASED AND ONE MALE DECEASED? >> SIX STRUCK BY A GUNFIRE INCLUDING THE SUSPECT >> IT WAS A NONCRITICAL VICTIM? NOT A GUN SHOT >> I INTERVIEWED A GIRL IN A CHOIR CLASS WHO SAID THERE WAS A GIRL SHELTERING FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES WHO HAD BEEN SHOT SHE WAS TAKEN WHEN POLICE ARRIVED > SHE WOULD PROBABLY BE ONE OF THOSE SIX WE WILL SORT THROUGH ALL OF THAT AS TIME GOES ON

IT'S A MALE STUDENT WE ARE WORKING TO DEVELOP THAT >> ANY EVIDENCE OF BULLYING? >> WAY TOO EARLY IN THE INVESTIGATION TO BE ABLE TO FIGURE THAT OUT BUT WE WILL GET TO THAT, CERTAINLY >> THERE WAS REPORT THAT THERE WAS AN OFF-DUTY DEPUTY THAT HAD CHILDREN'S AT THE SCHOOL THAT WAS AMONG THE FIRST RESPONDERS IS THAT TRUE? >> YES

AS THE FIRE CHIEF SAID, THIS SCHOOL — A LOT OF LOCALS FROM OUR FIRE DEPARTMENT AND FROM OTHER POLICE DEPARTMENTS — THIS AREA HAS AN AWFUL LOT OF LAW ENFORCEMENT PRESENCE THAT WOULD NOT SURPRISE ME IF THEY WERE AVAILABLE AND DID RESPOND I HAVE NOT SEEN IT, PERSONALLY >> ONE OF THOSE CRITICALLY INJURED, AND CAN YOU VERIFY THAT? >> HEARING IS THERE IS ONE IT WAS A 16-YEAR-OLD FEMALE AND A 14-YEAR-OLD MALE

THE INFORMATION WE HAVE IS THAT THEY ARE NOT IN CRITICAL CONDITION THE ONES THAT WERE IN CRITICAL ARE THE ONES THAT HAVE PASSED AWAY OUTSIDE OF THE SUSPECT HIMSELF, THE OTHER ONES, I WON'T COMMENT ON THAT I WILL LEAF THAT UP TO A REPRESENTATIVE FROM THE HOSPITAL >>> I'LL BE BRIEF

I'M SORRY TO BE HERE TODAY OUR HEARTS GO TOUT ON THE VICTIMS AND THE FAMILIES WE TRAIN FOR THIS YEAR ROUND WE HOPE THE DAY WILL NEVER COME AND TODAY IT CAME WE WERE PREPARED

WE IMMEDIATELY CALLED CODE TRIAGE AND WE WERE PREPARED TO RECEIVE PATIENTS WE HAD FOUR PATIENTS AT THE HOSPITAL TWO ARE DECEASED ONE IS IN CRITICAL CONDITION, AND ONE IS IN GOOD CONDITION THE QUESTION YOU ARE ALL GOING ASK ME IS THE SUSPECT AT HENRY MAYO? IT IS A QUESTION I CAN'T ANSWER

I'LL DEFER THAT TO THE SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT THANK YOU VERY MUCH >>> THAT IS GOING TO BE IT THERE WILL BE UPDATES PUT OUT LATER PLEAS FOLLOW THE FACEBOOK AND INTERNET PAGES

WE'LL TRY TO GET ANY UPDATED INFORMATION OUT AS SOON AS WE CAN THANK YOU >>> POLICE GIVING US ANOTHER UPDATE AND CONFIRMING THERE ARE NOW TWO FATALITIES FROM THE HIGH SCHOOL SHOOTING THAT TOOK PLACE A 16-YEAR-OLD STUDENT AND A 14- YEAR-OLD BOTH HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES I WANT TO TURN BACK TO JAMIE

I HAD TO CUT YOU OFF AS WE WERE GOING BACK TO THIS PRESS CONFERENCE BUT YOU WERE SAYING TO US ABOUT THE SUSPECT TODAY WAS HIS BIRTHDAY? >> TODAY WAS HIS 16th BIRTHDAY THE INTERESTING PIECES OF INFORMATION THAT HAVE COME OUT IS THAT THIS SCHOOL HAS 2300 STUDENTS BUT IT APPEARS, BASED ON THE SURVEILLANCE VIDEO THE POLICE WERE LOOKING AT, THAT THIS GROUP WAS IN THE QUAD AREA TOGETHER THE SIX INDIVIDUALS THAT WERE SHOT

IT LOOKS TO BE THREE MALES, INCLUDING THE SHOOTER AND THREE FEMALES, AT THIS POINT IN TIME THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF NUMBERS THROWN AROUND WE KNOW A TOTAL OF SEVEN PATIENTS AT THIS POINT IN TIME ONE 16-YEAR-OLD FEMALE HAS DIED ONE 14-YEAR-OLD MALE HAS DIED

THE SHOOTER, ALSO WE WERE TOLD AT THE BEGINNING OF THE PRESS CONFERENCE IN GRAVE CONDITION THAT LEAVES THREE OTHER VICTIMS RIGHT NOW AND ONE PATIENT IN GOOD CONDITION NOW THESE PEOPLE WERE IN THE QUAD AREA AND FROM WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE ON THE SURVEILLANCE CAMERA, YOU HEARD OFFICERS SAY IT LOOKED LIKE THE SUSPECT PULLED OUT A 45 CALIBER PISTOL HE STARTS SHOOTING AT THIS GROUP OF PEOPLE AND THEN POINTS THE GUN TO HIMSELF HE HAD NO OTHER AMMUNITION

I THINK WHAT IS INTERESTING TO ME IS NOT ONLY WAS IT HIS BIRTHDAY, BUT WE DID HEAR HIS GIRLFRIEND AND HIS MOTHER ARE BEING INTERVIEWED BY POLICE I KNOW FROM COVERING SO MANY OF THESE SCHOOL SHOOTINGS IN CASES AND MASS SHOOTINGS THAT GENERALLY, IF IT IS A MALE SUSPECT THEY ARE DESCRIBED AS A LONER WE HAVE A COUPLE OF ODD TIS HERE YOU HAVE A YOUNG, MALE WHO IS ASIAN, 16 YEARS OLD WITH A GIRLFRIEND AND THIS HAPPENED ON HIS BIRTHDAY

THERE IS A LOT OF DIFFERENT PIECES THAT WILL NEED TO BE PUT TOGETHER TO FIGURE OUT EXACTLY WHAT TOOK PLACE HERE YOU HEARD SOME OF THE REPORTERS ASKING WAS THERE BULLYING INVOLVED? WAS THIS A REVENGE SHOOTING? YOU HEARD THE SHERIFF SAY THEY ARE WORKING THOSE DETAILS OUT THE SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT WAS ABLE TO VERY QUICKLY NAIL DOWN WHERE THE SUSPECT'S HOME WAS BECAUSE OF TALKING TO STUDENTS THAT IS WHY IT IS TAKING SO LONG FOR STUDENTS TO BE REUNITED WITH FAMILIES THEY GOT A NAME, THEY WERE ABLE TO GO TO THE HOUSE AND THERE IT SOUNDS LIKE OFFICERS DID FOR THE FIND ANY ADDITIONAL WEAPONS

WHICH AGAIN, FROM COVERING A NUMBER OF THESE SHOOTINGS, SO OFTEN THE CASE IS THEY FIND ADDITIONAL WEAPONS OR AMMUNITION AT THE HOME OR INSIDE THE SUSPECT'S VEHICLE THAT DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE HAPPENING AT THIS POINT IN TIME THIS HAPPENED A COUPLE OF HOURS AGO AT THE VERY START OF THE SCHOOL DAY THEY GO ON PERIODS AT THIS SCHOOL SO FIRST PERIOD WAS ALREADY IN SESSION

A NUMBER OF STUDENTS AND TEACHERS AND STAFF HAD SHOWN UP TO START THE DAY BUT BECAUSE THERE ARE DIFFERENT PERIODS THROUGHOUT THE DAY, OTHER STUDENTS WERE JUST ARRIVING TO SCHOOL IT SOUNDS LIKE THIS DID HAPPEN IN THE QUAD AREA AND AGAIN THERE ARE SIX DIFFERENT VICTIMS OF THIS, INCLUDING THE SHOOTER TWO OF WHICH HAVE DIED, A 16- YEAR-OLD FEMALE AND A 14-YEAR- OLD MALE THIS IS A HIGH SCHOOL THAT IS ABOUT 30 MILES NORTH OF DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES AND I CAN TELL YOU AS YOU HAVE HEARD, IT IS A VERY TIGHT KNIT COMMUNITY

A LOT OF MEMBERS OF OUR STAFF HERE AT CBS, BOTH THE LOCAL CBS STATION AND AT THE NETWORK KNOW PEOPLE OR HAVE CHILDREN THAT ATTEND THE SCHOOLS IN THIS AREA ALL THE SCHOOLS IN THAT SCHOOL DISTRICT AT ONE POINT IN TIME ON LOCKDOWN IT HAS BEEN A SCARY SITUATION FOR SO MANY PARENTS TRYING TO GET IN TOUCH WITH THEIR CHILDREN AND FIGURE OUT EXACTLY WHAT WAS GOING ON IT IS GOING TO BE A LONG DAY FOR A LOT OF PARENTS AS POLICE ARE TRYING TO INTERVIEW EACH STUDENT BEFORE THEY LEAVE FOR THE DAY TO TRY TO GET THE BIGGEST AMOUNT OF INFORMATION THEY CAN ABOUT WHAT, EXACTLY, WENT WRONG >>> IS THERE A SENSE ABOUT SCHOOL IN THE AREA? DO THEY PLAN TO HAVE SCHOOL OPEN TOMORROW? >> Reporter: AT THIS POINT IN TIME I WOULD SAY IT IS VERY EARLY FOR THAT DETERMINATION

I THINK NOW YOU HAVE TWO STUDENTS WHO HAVE PASSED AWAY, THERE IS ALWAYS THE DEBATE WHETHER THEY OPEN THE SCHOOL BACK UP AND ALLOW GUIDANCE COUNSELORS TO COME IN AND DO THE WORK THEY NEED TO DO, GRIEF COUNSELORS TO TALK TO THE STUDENTS OR DO THEY KEEP THE SCHOOLS SHUT? WE'LL WORK ON THAT FOR YOU >>> JEFF, YOU KNOW, IT WAS HARD TO HEAR ONE OF THE OFFICIALS SAY WE DON'T WANT OUR SCHOOL TO BE FOREVER NAMED AMONG COLUMBINE AND THE OTHER SCHOOL SHOOTINGS BUT IT OFFICIALLY IS NOW WE HEARD THE POLICE TALK ABOUT THE VIDEO, PRESERVE AND CAPTURE CELL PHONE VIDEO AND DEALING WITH THE FBI WHEN YOU ARE LOOKING AT A DIGITAL FOOTPRINT WHAT ARE THEY LOOKING FOR? >> A MOTIVE

BUT THE GOOD THING HERE IS, AS YOU OUTLINE IS THE FACT THEY HAVE, IT SEEMS LIKE ALREADY, SO MUCH VIDEO FROM INSIDE THE SCHOOL THEY COULD SEE, ACCORDING TO THE SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT, THEY COULD SEE THE SHOOTING UNFOLDING ON THIS VIDEO IN ADDITION TO THAT, THEY HAD THE FBI HELPING THEM COLLECT CELL PHONE VIDEO THAT MAY EXIST, THIS COULD ALSO GIVE THEM MORE INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT, PERHAPS, MAY HAVE LED UP TO THIS INCIDENT DID THE SHOOTER SAY ANYTHING BEFORE THIS INCIDENT HAPPENED? BEFORE HE STARTED FIRING? SO THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE THAT SURVEILLANCE VIDEO IN THE SCHOOL WILL CERTAINLY HELP INVESTIGATORS GOING FORWARD AND YOU KNOW WHAT? I DOUBT THAT SCHOOL WILL BE OPEN TOMORROW

THIS IS A CRIME SCENE SIX PEOPLE WERE TRANSPORTED FROM THE CRIME SCENE AFTER BEING SHOT SO THIS IS A TRAUMATIC SCENE SO YOU KNOW, I WOULD BE SHOCKED TO SEE THOSE KIDS GOING BACK INTO THAT SCHOOL TOMORROW THERE IS STILL A LOT OF WORK THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT HAS TO DO AND FRANKLY, STILL A LOT OF WORK THAT SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS HAVE TO DO IS THE WAKE OF THIS INCIDENT

IT WOULD REALLY BE UNUSUAL FOR THE SCHOOL TO REOPEN TOMORROW BUT WE'LL HAVE TO SEE WHEN WE GET OFFICIAL WORD AS FAR AS THIS INVESTIGATION IS CONCERNED, THEY HAVE A LOT TO GO ON THEY ARE INTERVIEWING, AS JAMIE POINTED OUT, THE MOTHER AND THE GIRLFRIEND OF THIS PERSON WHO IS, ACCORDING TO INVESTIGATORS, AND YOU HAVE TO WONDER THIS WAS HIS BIRTHDAY

SO WHY DID HE CHOOSE THIS DAY? AND THEN HE STAYED IN THE SCHOOL THAT WAS ANOTHER BIG REVELATION, I THINK FROM THIS PRESS CONFERENCE EARLIER WE WERE UNDER THE IMPRESSION, BASED ON THE MOVEMENTS OF LAW ENFORCEMENT OUT IN THE COMMUNITY THAT THEY WERE LOOKING FOR THE SHOOTER IN ANOTHER LOCATION WELL IT TURNS OUT HE WAS AT THE SCHOOL THE WHOLE TIME AND HE HAD THIS SELF-INFLICTED GUNSHOT WOUND HE WAS AMONG THE PEOPLE TRANSPORTED FROM THE SCHOOL

BUT IF YOU ARE LAW ENFORCEMENT, YOU CAN NEVER BE TOO CAREFUL SO THEY HAD TO FAN OUT ACROSS THE NEIGHBORHOOD, MAKING SURE THEY HAD ACCOUNTED FOR THE SHATTER WELL IT TURNS OUT HE WAS IN THE SCHOOL IT TURNS OUT THERE WAS VIDEO OF THE INCIDENT AS WELL SO, CLEARLY WHAT HAPPENED IS THEY RESPONDED TO THE SCENE, AND AS THEY WERE DOING THAT, FANNING OUT ACROSS THE COMMUNITY, THEY WERE ALSO LOOKING AT SURVEILLANCE INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT WENT DOWN, WHO THE SHOOTER MIGHT BE, WHERE THE SHOOTER MIGHT BE AND WHERE LAW ENFORCEMENT HAS TO GO NEXT

>>> PAUL, JUST WHAT WE KNOW FROM POLICE ABOUT THE SUSPECT 16-YEAR-OLD MALE, ASIAN, USED A 45 CALIBER SEMIAUTOMATIC WEAPON WHAT STANDS OUT TO YOU IN THAT PROFILE AND THOSE DESCRIPTIONS? >> YOU KNOW IT IS INTERESTING YOU SAY THAT SO MUCH OF THE STUDY BETWEEN SECRET SERVICE AND FBI HAS BEEN TRYING TO BREAK DOWN A DEMOGRAPHIC AND TRYING TO FIND LINES OF COMMONALITY IN BETWEEN WHO THIS PERSON ACTUALLY AND WHERE THE COMMON GROUNDS ARE THOUSAND STATISTICALLY, THERE IS THAT 5% OTHER BREAKDOWN FOR ETHNICITY AND THAT IS WHERE THE ASIAN GROUP FALLS

THIS IS VERY RARE YOU SEE SOMEONE OF ASIAN DESCENT THAT IS THE SHOOTER THE MAJORITY ARE WHITE THE FACT HE IS 16 IS NOT RARE AND THE OTHER PART ABOUT THIS AND AGAIN WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND IT IS THIS DEMOGRAPHIC THAT PRESENTS THE HIGHEST PROBABILITY OF FORESEEABILITY SO WHEN WE ARE INVESTIGATING THIS WE KNOW MORE THAN 88% OF THIS DEMOGRAPHIC TALK ABOUT GET EVEN PLANS

SO LAW ENFORCEMENT IS GOING TO BE STEERING IN THE DIRECTION OF WHAT WAS FORESEEABLE? DID THIS PERSON MENTION ANYTHING? AND IN THE COURSE OF THE INVESTIGATION, THE INFORMATION THAT CAN BE GARNERED THAT WILL CREATE THE MOSAIC THEY ARE LOOKING FOR SO THEY CAN BETTER UNDERSTAND THE WHY >> 88% TALK ABOUT GET EVEN PLANS POLICE ALSO MENTIONED THEY LOOKED BACK AT THE THREATS, PAUL TO SEE THE THREATS THAT WERE REPORTED THERE WERE TWO THREATS THEY HAD INVESTIGATED NONE OF THEM WERE CONNECTED TO THIS, ACCORDING TO POLICE THAT WE HAVE SPOKEN TO

VERY OFTEN WE COVER THESE SHADOWINGS AND THERE WASN'T A HEADS UP THAT THIS WAS COMING >> RIGHT WELL YOU KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO BE INTERESTING AS THIS UNFOLDS AND I THINK TO THE POINT EARLIER THAT JEFF WAS ADDRESSING AND AS ALWAYS, HE IS ON POINT WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT THE SCHOOL, THAT IS A CRIME SCENE

SO FOR OUR VIEWERS TO BETTER UNDERSTAND IT THE POLICE MUST MAKE SURE THAT THAT CRIME SCENE IS PROCESSED METHODICALLY SO IT IS A SAFE BET THAT SCHOOL WILL BE CLOSED TOMORROW AND YOU KNOW, SCHOOL WILL REMAIN CLOSED UNTIL THE CRIME SCENE IS PROCESSED CLEARLY, WHEN WE ARE TAKING A LOOK AT WHAT THE STEPS ARE RIGHT NOW AND WHAT THIS COMMUNITY IS GOING TO FACE, WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT CRITICAL INCIDENT STRESS DEBRIEFING, OR BASICALLY STRESS AND PSYCHOLOGICAL COUNSELING IS GOING TO HAVE TO BE OFFERED TO ALL THE STUDENTS, SO THAT BEFORE IT WOULD EACH COME BACK INTO SCHOOL THEY CAN MAKE SURE IF THERE ARE PRESSING ISSUES THEY ARE ADDRESSED PREEMPTIVELY INSTEAD OF HAVING STUDENTS COME BACK IN >>> YOU KNOW PAUL, ONE OF THE THINGS IN THESE SCHOOL SHOOTINGS I ALWAYS TRY TO TAKE AWAY IS SO MANY OF US WHAT IF WE ARE THE PARENT? WHAT IF WE ARE THE STUDENT? HOW DO WE PREPARE OURSELVES? EVERY TIME WE DO THESE, EVERYONE SAYS WE DIDN'T EXPECT THIS TO BE OUR SCHOOL ONE PARENT SAID HIS CHILD CALLED HIM CRYING

EMOTIONAL, HYSTERICAL AND THE FATHER AT ONE POINT SAID YOU HAVE TO CALM DOWN WHAT IF THE SHOOTER COMES INTO YOUR CLASSROOM? EACH IN THE INTERVIEW THE PARENT REMAINED AS CALM AS POSSIBLE WHAT IS THE TAKE AWAY, PAUL? I WAS SURPRISED TO SEE SOME OF THE STUDENTS RAN INTO OTHER HOMES NEARBY JUST TO SEEK SHELTER WHAT IS YOUR TAKE AWAY TO PEOPLE WHO WATCH? AND EVERY SCHOOL SHOOTING WHILE IT SEEMS SIMILAR, CAN BE SO DIFFERENT WHAT IS THE TAKE AWAY FOR PARENTS AND STUDENTS? >> YOU ARE SO RIGHT

THE BIGGEST TAKE AWAY IS TRAINING, TRAINING, TRAINING WHAT WE HAVE SEEN EVOLVE AND GOD KNOWS YOU AND I HAVE COVERED A NUMBER OF THESE TOGETHER THE AMOUNT OF TRAINING THAT HAVE BEEN INVESTED BY SCHOOLS AROUND THE UNITED STATES IN RESPONSE TO THINGS LIKE THIS WHAT I FOUND MOST TELLING WAS THE EXCEPTIONAL COVERAGE CBS

THEY INTERVIEWED ONE PARTICULAR YOUNG LADY I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAUGHT THIS SHE IS STANDING NEXT TO HER FATHER AND THEY WERE ASKING HER SO WHAT DID YOU DO? AND WITHOUT ANY HESITATION SHE LOOKED RIGHT INTO THE CAMERA AND SHE SAID WE JUMPED INTO THE ACTION WE LOCKED THE DOOR WE SHELTERED IN PLACE THAT IS TRAINING THE TAKE AWAY HERE IS WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT REQUIRES SCHOOLS TO HAVE THIS TYPE OF SECURITY RELATED POSTURE

BECAUSE OF THE HEY PROBABILITY OF SHOOTINGS BUT ALSO, THE BIGGEST TAKE AWAY IS THE FACT THAT IT IS THIS DEMOGRAPHIC, THAT 17 OR UNDER SHOOTER THAT PROMOTES CONVERSATION AND DIALOGUE VERBALLY AND ELECTRONICALLY BEFORE THEY MAKE THIS EVENT ACTUALLY COME TO FRUITION WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND YES WE HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB IN RESPONSE WE NEED TO DIAL THIS THING UP ON THE PRE-EMPTIVE SIDE

>> 88% OF KIDS AT THIS AGE TALK ABOUT GETTING EVEN >>> COMING UP, TESTIMONY FROM YESTERDAY'S PUBLIC IMPEACHMENT HEARING REVEALED NEW INFORMATION ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP'S INTEREST IN SEEKING INVESTIGATIONS INTO JOE BIDEN AHEAD WE HAVE THE LATEST REACTION FROM THE WHITE HOUSE AHEAD OF TOMORROW'S HEARING YOU ARE STREAMING CBSN
