court court. andrews now preparing to take the stand as early as next week. and red carpet ready. hollywood gears up for its biggest night, but this year, the glitz and glamour will be stirred up with a healthy dose of controversy. we'll give you all the plot lines today, friday, february 26th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning, everyone. welcome to the "today" show on this friday morning. >> what a debate last night. they don't need moderators anymore, they need play-by-play announcers. >> this really got heated. we'll have much more on the debate in a second, though. our top story this morning, though, is that tragic shooting rampage out in kansas. this morning, we know the identity of the alleged shooter who opened fire on co-workers before he was shot and killed by police. nbc's blake mccoy is at the
7:02 am
blake, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. four people dead here, including the gunman. 15 injured. late breaking this morning, we are learning that the gunman had been issued a retraining order against him by his girlfriend just hours before his rampage. [ shots ] this is video of the gunman, sedrick larry ford, posted on his facebook page, firing what appears to be an assault rifle. ford in his late 30s, went on a shooting rampage at the excel industries factory late thursday afternoon. and this morning police say a restraining order may have been the reason behind the attack. >> around 3:30 yesterday afternoon, the shooter had been served with a protection from abuse order, and by 5:00, he shot his first person. >> reporter: police confirm the shooter was an employee at the factory which makes rideing mowers and lawncare equipment. an estimated 150 people were inside when the gunfire broke out. >> all of a sudden, pop, pop, pop, pop. >> he was following people out
7:03 am
>> reporter: police say ford appeared to be shooting at random with an assault rifle. he was also carrying a semi-automatic handgun. eyewitnesses stopped to help the wounded. >> he got shot twice in the chest, once in the arm and once in the leg. >> reporter: the rampage started about an hour earlier less than ten miles away. shortly before 5:00 p.m., police say the gunman drove through the south-central town of newton, opening fire on two cars and injuring one person. from there, police say the suspect drove eight miles, where he stole a car and injured another person. after that, he made his way to the excel factory in hesston, shooting one person in the parking lot before making his way inside and shooting many more. authorities say the gunman was still shooting when the first officer arrived and was able to take him down, saving many lives. >> in my mind, that officer saved a whole lot of lives, because this shooter wasn't done. >> reporter: and while we do
7:04 am
this excel industries building, officials say he appeared to be firing at random inside, not targeting anyone specific. we do know that before living here in kansas for the last five years, he did live in broward county, florida, where police say he does have a criminal record. how he was able to obtain those weapons is part of the investigation by the atf. matt, savannah? >> all right, blake mccoy out in kansas for us on this story. blake, thank you very much. we move now to the presidential race and that raucous republican debate last night. marco rubio and ted cruz laying into the front-runner, donald trump, trying to slow his momentum as we head into super tuesday. will it work, or is it too late? we've got complete coverage. plus, we will talk to senator rubio in just a moment, but let us begin this morning with nbc alexander. hi, peter, good morning. >> reporter: hey, savannah, good morning to you. after three straight double-digit victories for donald trump, marco rubio and ted cruz finally ganged up on front-runner.
7:05 am
than texas, the fight felt more like a brawl. at the lonestar state standoff, marco rubio let loose. >> you're the only person on this stage that's ever been fined for hiring people to work on your projects illegally. >> no, no, i'm the only one on the stage that's hired people. you haven't hired anybody. >> well, if he builds the way the way he built trump towers, he'll be using illegal immigrant labor to do it. >> reporter: in his last stand before super tuesday, rubio skillfully, at times playfully, mocked front-runner donald trump. >> now he's repeating himself. >> no, i'm not repeating. no, no, no. i've watched him repeat himself five times four weeks ago and -- >> i saw you repeat yourself five times five seconds ago. you said five things -- everyone's dumb, we're going to make america great again, we're going to win, win, win, he's winning in the polls and there's lines around the state. every night, same thing. >> reporter: one of the best lines of the night, rubio questioning trump's success story. >> if he hadn't inherited $200 million, you know where he would be right now? selling watches in manhattan. >> reporter: the rubio campaign
7:06 am
moment online, fund-raising off this fake add for a $10 trump watch, shattered face and all. here on his home turf in texas, a must-win next week, ted cruz also teamed up on trump. >> in 2013, when i was leading the fight against the gang of eight amnesty bill, where was donald? he was firing dennis rodman on "celebrity apprentice." >> reporter: trump defending, deflecting, and delivering counterpunches. >> i got along with everybody. you get along with nobody. you should be ashamed of yourself. i had an amazing relationship with politicians. this guy's a joke artist and this guy's a liar. >> reporter: the brash billionaire also fended off this colorful attack from former mexican president vicente fox. >> i'm not going to pay for that [ bleep ] wall. he should pay for it. he's got the money. >> reporter: asked how he would get mexico to pay? >> i will, and the wall just got ten feet taller, believe me. if i would have used even half
7:07 am
national scandal. >> reporter: at times, the debate devolved into a debacle. >> donald, relax. >> go ahead. >> i'm relaxed. you're the basket case. you're losing so badly, you don't know what's happening. >> gentlemen, gentlemen -- >> reporter: ben carson, left off camera, begged to be heard. >> can somebody attack me, please? >> reporter: marco rubio and ted cruz also promised to release their tax returns within the next 24 to 48 hours, putting new pressure on donald trump to do the same. trump blamed the irs for his delay, saying that two to three years' worth of his returns are currently being audited. matt and savannah? >> all right, peter alexander, thank you. >> senator marco rubio is with us now. senator, good morning. >> good morning. >> i'm reading a lot of the reviews this morning. a lot of people think you had a very strong performance last night. you hit donald trump on a string of substantives issues, things like obamacare, his hiring practices, planned parenthood,
7:08 am
court. was this the plan all along, to string together this kind of substantive attack on the 11th hour, or at the 11th hour to leave this fresh in the minds of voters on super tuesday? >> well, look, the thing here is i'd prefer not to have a fight and an argument with other republicans, but donald, as he reminds everyone, has done very well in the early states, and we're on the verge of having someone take over the conservative movement in the republican party who's a con artist. he's out there telling people that he's fighting. you know, his target audience is working americans who are really struggling over the last few years in this economy, but he has spent a career sticking it to working americans. that's what i was pointing out last night. >> you said specifically you don't want to criticize other republicans. you've said that over and over again, but was it the strategy to wait until the last minute so that it's fresh in the minds of voters on tuesday? >> no. that was when the debate is. and number two, as he reminds everybody over and over, he's doing well in the polls.
7:09 am
i ask people to join my effort at marcorubio.com so we can put a stop to this lunacy. we are not going to turn over the conservative movement to a con artist who is telling people one thing but has spent 40 years sticking it to working americans and now claims to be their champion. >> one of the issues that came up last night was the taxes of donald trump. by the way, you and senator ted cruz say you'll release your returns in the coming days. donald trump said he can't because he's being audited. he revealed he had been audited, actually, for the last several years. is that a sufficient reason not to release at least part of his tax records? >> well, first of all, we'll release ours, and not only will we release ours, but we do a financial disclosure with the senate every year, so there's really no difference between those financial disclose yours and the taxes. number two, i don't think that's enough. i think ted cruz had a good point last night, we need to see those returns to see if the difference between the audited version and what he filed are evidence of wrongdoing. but i think the reason why donald won't release his taxes
7:10 am
as much money as he claims he does. i mean, this is a guy that's taken trump airlines bankrupt, trump vodka, nobody wanted it, trump mortgage was a disaster, trump university was a fraud. i mean, he is not as rich as he claims to be. everybody in finance knows that, and his taxes would expose that. and so, i think that's why he doesn't -- he came up with this excuse now of an audit. it's absurd. >> let me ask you this, after the debate, he said the reason he's audited all the time is because he's too strong of a christian. do you think that might be a factor? >> well, i mean, this is unreal! i mean, again, this guy is a con artist. i mean, he's always making things up and no one holds him accountable for it. i mean, you have a guy who's being sued right now for fraud for trump university. and i've had stories written about my driving record, you know, that we had red light camera tickets. i had a guy go back and write a story about how when i was 18 years old, i got arrested, or cited, i should say, for drinking beer in a park after hours. and here's a guy being sued for
7:11 am
here's a guy who had to pay a judgment for hiring polish workers illegally to build trump towers, and he's being treated with kid gloves by many in the media in the hopes that he's the nominee. some of them are biased. they'd love to see a liberal like donald trump take over the republican party, and others know he's easy to beat once he gets there. so, he'll have to release his taxes and hillary clinton will take him apart. >> senator, tuesday is hugely important for you. you need a win, you need delegates. one of your campaign spokesperson said you would win florida. you are right now behind in that state by double digits. will you guarantee that you'll win the state of florida? >> we're not behind by double digits in florida. those polls that they're doing -- that you're citing is wrong. not only do we have our own numbers, but i know my state. we're going to win florida, and we're going to do well on super tuesday, but it's up to the people watching this. that's why i'm on this broadcast. if you want to stop this man, donald trump, this con artist, from taking over the conservative movement, then i ask you to go on our website, marcorubio.com, sign up and help
7:12 am
lunacy. we cannot turn over the reagan revolution to someone who has spent a career of sticking it to working people and now claims to be their champion. >> senator marco rubio picking up this morning where he left off last night. senator, thank you very much for your time. >> thank you. >> and now let's bring in nbc news political analyst nicolle wallace and mark halperin with bloomberg politics, managing editor. >> good to be with you. >> mark, you were saying they were throwing everything but the kitchen sink. in this case, i think the kitchen sink was also included in terms of marco rubio dumping the entire file on trump, from the university to the hiring of illegal workers to the fraud lawsuit. it was all in there, and i guess the question this morning is, was it enough, was it too late? >> kitchen sink, bathtub and everything else in his arsenal. you know, this morning with you guys, he talked about trump as a con artist. i thought that was a more focused message than last night,
7:13 am
different things. to think if marco rubio had a performance like this months ago, whether the trajectory would be different. we're days away from super tuesday, donald trump is winning in all of the states by a substantial margin, except texas, so i think he waited too long to put this kind of performance in. >> nicole, i don't think there's any doubt this was marco rubio's best performance in a debate. was it donald trump's worst? >> it doesn't matter. he's always pretty crummy, and it never seems to matter. what i think is interesting is, so, chris christie did to marco rubio what marco rubio did to donald trump, and the effect of that was incredible damage to marco rubio, but chris christie was out i think less than a week later. but what was interesting to me is did marco rubio, as chris christie, make it easier for cruz to win texas? did rubio breathe some life back into all of the opponents to trump?
7:14 am
his business dealings was always viewed as trump's achilles' heel. and the mystery in republican circles is why didn't anyone make this case before? >> and talking about the effect now of this attack, mark, to you, does this buy marco rubio some time? do you think the gop donors and loyalists, the people kind of waiting on the sidelines wondering if marco rubio had it in him to go the distance -- are they now off the sidelines and he's going to get an influx of support and cash? >> well, they certainly -- some people will be encouraged and say,ow, we'd love to see maybe a one-on-one debate between marco rubio and donald trump. the problem he has is super tuesday, when so many delegates are at stake, with so many states voting on tuesday, there's no state at this point where marco rubio could win. while he says he could win florida, and people doubt that and public polling doesn't suggest he can, it's hard to see how he survives all the way to florida in a couple weeks if he doesn't win a single state on super tuesday or between super tuesday and when florida votes on the 15th. so, he's in a stronger position with a stronger debate
7:15 am
tough to see how that translates into winning states in the short term. >> all right, nicolle, mark, this was fascinating. thank you very much. good to see you guys this morning. meanwhile, former republican candidate senator lindsey graham has not been shy about attacking donald trump or the shenanigans of this campaign season. he took things to a new level during last night's washington press club foundation dinner. take a look. >> my party has gone [ bleep ] crazy. if you kill ted cruz on the floor of the senate and the trial was in the senate, nobody could convict you. i ran for president and i had to get out. i endorsed jeb bush, and he had to get out. i'm the dr. kevorkian. of the republican primary.
7:16 am
[ laughter ] i endorse donald trump and hope that grand magic still exists. >> sum it up pretty well, nicoll snenk. >> he did. and what's so interesting is that this party has now got its hair on fire about donald trump. and marco rubio is the only one with the hope of benefiting, i think, at this point, from all these attacks. but i think republicans are wondering where was this outcry? where was this hysteria? donald trump has been doing well for a very long time. marco rubio is now satisfying and acceptable to a broad swath of all of the republicans who kind of laughed at those jokes. where was the strength he displayed last night, six, seven, two months ago, when it really could have put marco rubio in the top position in all of these polls? >> to your point, it's not like these lines of attack were hiding in the bushes. this was the low-hanging fruit. >> trump's business dealings are known around new york and in business communities, and
7:17 am
such an aggressive way, it's satisfying to a lot of people who wondered why they weren't earlier. but i agree with mark halperin's analysis. i'm just not sure if there's time. >> okay. >> nicolle, thank you. thank you very much. al's on the road this morning, lucky guy, miami beach. it looks beautiful, al. good morning. >> it is gorgeous. 56 degrees, which we would love in new york city, but feels a little cool here, a little breezy. we're not complaining. it's the 15th annual south beach wine and food festival. we're here at south beach. meantime, let's show you what we've got on right now around the country. again, the good news is things have calmed down for the most part. we're seeing some action moving into the pacific northwest, northern california. windy in the northeast. look for some lake-effect snow showers around the great lakes. plenty of sunshine through the gulf coast. things are much calmer today than they have been the last couple of days. that's what's going on. we're going to get to your local

because he's being audited. the alleged gunman who killed 4 people and injured at least 14 others in kansas is being identified this morning as cedric ford. police say he opened fire at a factory where he worked as well as two other locations before being shot dead by police. witnesses described the chaos. >> i had no idea what to do. we were hopping fences. everybody was running, people were screaming. >> what we're looking at is that around 3:30 yesterday afternoon, the shooter had been served with a protection from abuse order, the final order of that, and by 5:00, he shot his first person. >> and apple is officially now asking a federal judge to reverse that order that would force the tech giant to help the fbi unlock an iphone used by one of the san bernardino shooters. in a motion filed thursday, apple accuses the government of seeking dangerous power that goes well beyond just one phone. and we've got new

sports reporter erin andrews' $75 million civil trial and natalie's been following this one. >> hey, guys, good morning. thursday was a difficult day for andrews, so much so that she chose to leave the courtroom while jurors were shown the video at the center of her case. erin andrews stepping out of the court before jurors saw the videos that have been haunting her for years. >> why don't we start with the first one? >> reporter: in a darkened courtroom with security cameras blocked, more than 4 1/2 minutes of the footage showing the sports reporter undressing in her hotel room was played for the jurors. they now join millions who have seen the material online. >> 16,800,000 people, conservatively, have viewed the video. >> reporter: michael barrett pleaded guilty to stalking and shooting the nude videos in 2008 and served 30 months in prison. those videos still live online, and more people view them each day, according to computer scientist bernard janssen. >> it works out to every minute about 1.5 people are watching that video. so, right now, someone's

7:34 am
>> and the hotel maintained it did nothing wrong, that barrett deceived and manipulated the system to get the room right next to andrews. court is not i andrews, though, expected to take the stand monday and the case expected to go on through next week. >> a lot of people will be watching that, for sure. natalie, thank you. it's going to be a very big weekend out in hollywood. the 88th oscars are sunday. and for a second straight year, a cloud of controversy is hanging over the movie industry's biggest night. nbc's joe fryer is at the dolby theatre in los angeles. joe, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning from the red carpet, currently covered in white plastic. no worries, that will be gone by sunday. no rain in the forecast. this year's show will feature a truly unpredictable three-way race for best picture, but that story line has been overshadowed by another year of controversy over diversity. headlines will be made not just by the stars who are on the red carpet but also those who are not. will smith and his wife, jada

anywhere -- some of these waves are going to reach 50 feet tall. i mean, unbelievable stuff. and they say this is some of the biggest waves they've seen in 40 years. and surfers were colliding, they were wiping out. that is -- and it's a great excuse just to play the "hawaii five-oh" theme, so for me, it's a win-win. let's look at what's going on temperaturewise, as far as your weather is concerned. if you're out west, man, you are hanging ten! because the jet stream is way up to the north. and look at these temperatures. friday, 74 in san diego, vegas 78, 63 in denver. the warm-up moves east as we move into saturday. temperatures get into the rockies. we're looking at possible records from kansas city, chicago, indianapolis, all the way down into san antonio. and by sunday, they're even into the northeast after a cooldown today and tomorrow. you'll see warmer weather from tallahassee, new york city and on up into chicago and

8:34 am
other, any of us. >> at each other's weddings, birthday parties. >> divorces. >> several. >> reporter: the tanner family and -- >> home, sweet, home. >> reporter: -- one special neighbor are back for the launch of "fuller house." john stamos, uncle jesse, is one of the producers responsible for the reboot. >> we'll do 13 episodes where we'll pop in and out. we're handing the show over to these very able young actresses. they move into the house and have three kids they're raising. it's kind of switched. >> it's who is helping you raise your kids because, unfortunately, one of the parents has passed away. >> you both have to smile. i don't know what i'd do if you weren't here. >> team d.j. on three. >> reporter: it's a role reversal the former kids of "full house" say they're ready for. >> it's about our lives and that feels like the biggest transition of like, there's like a little bit of pressure for us.

8:39 am
hollywood's big night and what you can expect is dave karger, host of front runners on fandango. good to see you. >> you, too. >> we have to talk about the oscars controversy. i think a lot of people are wondering how and when chris rock the host might take it on. i assume he's going to take it on. >> oh, sure, he's going to take it on at the top of the show. all eyes will be on the eight-minute monologue he does. he tested out some material at a nightclub in los angeles last week. people who were there said he really did not hold back. there is a bit about how martin luther king jr. would have thought about this controversy and all that. i think people are going to really see what he's been doing. he's the perfect guy to be hosting this year. >> might be some people in the academy a little nervous about what he has to say. the speeches will be a little different. people are going to notice something. we're used to seeing winners get up there and ramble on and thank and thank and thank. they have a new feature. >> so they've asked all the nominees to submit a list of names in advance. if they win, while they're
8:40 am
example -- there will be a scroll -- thank you don nash -- for them to announce and name all the people they want to. is it going to work? >> i like the idea. i don't think it's going to work. >> really? i'm pro-scroll. i think it's a good idea. >> they're hoping it'll promote more moments of speaking from the heart. it's a hard habit to break. people have people they want to thank. >> and you get nervous. i get it. >> i think it'll work in some cases. >> let's go predictions. a lot of people think leonardo dicaprio is a shoe shoo-in. >> of course, yeah. he's been nominated so many times. he'll win for the right performance. he was terrific in "the revenant." >> best actress, what's going to happen? >> brie larson for "room." real breakout star. >> she's won everything leading up. >> she has. there's so much overall support for the movie which got a best director and best picture nomination. >> i think people's hearts are
8:41 am
>> sure. even though he wasn't nominated for.guild award, people feel like he should have won 39 years ago when he was nominated for "rocky." even though it won best picture he did not win. this is a way to right that wrong. >> the best supporting actress is close? >> between kate winslet for "steve jobs" and alicia vikander for "the danish girl." kate winslet won in the british academy awards. but she was not up against alicia. any time it's been alicia in "the danish girl" against kate, alicia wins. i think it will happen again. >> best director and best picture. they don't always go hand in hand. on the best director? >> i think they'll go hand in hand this time. >> >> i think it'll go to the
8:42 am
back to back best director. i think "revenant" has the edge. "mad max" will win a ton. if you're doing an oscar pool. >> if history proves true, you'll be write on 95% of the predictions. >> i hope so. >> daft karger,, thank you. >> we'll have a wrap, the winners, fashions, after parties everything monday on "today." natalie and al will be live in l.a. monday morning. celebrating some of our

first on a friday morn we're back at 8:44 with looking back, moving forward, in honor of black history month. >> this morning we celebrate the achievements of black americans that have meant so much to us and people all around the world. >> black history month for me is truly american history. >> it gives us a moment to reflect on the progress that we've made but also how far we
8:45 am
>> black history is about people who have broken barriers in all endeavors. >> whether it's technology, the arts, sports. >> from politics to pop culture, black americans have left such an indelible mark. >> the inauguration of president obama in 2009, i think, was one of those moments that i will forever talk about. >> i don't think you had to be black or a person of color to appreciate it. >> congratulations, mr. president. [ applause ] >> every space of green between the national monument and the lincoln memorial was covered with people. >> i was out on one of the streets as the motorcade was making its way to the cap kollitol building. everybody was excite and had caught up in the moment. >> when he and mrs. obama got out of the car the first time, it almost couldn't register. >> this is exciting. >> i remember diane carol was the first black actress in history to star in her own television show.
8:46 am
restricted to the clinic. >> i thought that was thrilling and she was so beautiful. she was just exquisite. then one of my favorite actors of all time, sydney portier, won an oscar for a beautiful movie. a woman >> a woman who i respect and am in awe of was ruby bridges. there were so many people chanting, two, four, six, eight, we don't want to integrate. she didn't know she was making history. she was going to school. >> ranch ricky had the courage to sign robinson to a major league contract. that took guts. then the sheer talents of jackie robinson who went on the field and played to the highest level every day and ignored what was thrown at him. and set a standard above anything anyone had seen before. those two guys in combination are black history month to me.
8:47 am
performance at the 1936 berlin olympics. i have this picture up in my office. i gives me chills every time i look at it. why was it so significant? jesse owens won four gold medals at an olympics hosted by adolph hitler. the point was to show off white supremacy. what did jesse owens did, the son of a sharecropper? he disproved the entire theory. >> calvin p. was an important figure to me in history. i'm a huge golfer. he didn't start playing until he was 24, from detroit. i remember seeing him as a kid, watching him walk out there on the golf course. not a tremendous amount of african-americans. long before tiger woods. amazing that he'd go on to a champion golfer. >> black history is about american history because the two are inseparable. >> what we describe as the triumphant moments and the difficult moments are all a part of who we are. >> one of my favorite martin luther king quotes is the marc
8:48 am
but it bends towards justice. i think there's a lot of work to do, but i think there's a lot of things to be proud of, as well. >> to understand some of the terrible things that have happened in this country and the suffering that has happened in this country. but also the great things and the great people that have risen from that. >> once you know your history, you're a better person for it. >> i think our history is intertwined, so as you look at what accomplishments have been made, they really are american accomplishments. >> that's the importance of black history month. for all of us to be forever reminded of those contributions. >> very different and interesting choices. >> absolutely. >> from everyone. coming up on weekend today, sheinelle is going to share her family's influence on wichita, kansas. coming up, we're sending lucky fans on a leap weekend

9:02 am
if heherited $200 million, you know where trump would be? selling watches and hats. >> i find it amazing donald trump thinks he discovered the issue of illegal immigration. when i ran for the state of texas, i promised to lead the fight against amnesty. in 2013, when i was leading the fight against the gang of 8 amnesty bill, where was donald? he was firing dennis rodman on "celebrity apprentice." >> that's just a tiny sample of what went on for two and a half hours. you heard rubio's line, that donald trump would actually be selling watches in new york, basically saying he'd be a hustler on canal street. now marco rubio has a shattered watch on his page. he scored points with the audience. when rubio went after him for
