7:02 am
that deadly shooting in a neighborhood outside of pittsburgh and the desperate search for at least two gun men. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. police have left the scene but tell me they will be back out to the shooting scene behind me here soon. allegheny county police say they are looking for two gun men they believe carried out the attack about 1:1:00 last night. the gun men open fire in an ambush style attack during a barbecue. bullets riddling a backyard filled with party goers. >> we've got multiple people shot here. >> i have six people down. >> total of five people deceased, three other people with gunshot wounds, two in critical and one
7:03 am
of the victims, three women and one man were found on the back porch of a house. investigators say shots may have been fired into the rear of a home and two different weapons could have been discharged from two different suspects. residents say they were walking in the area when they heard gunshots and saw people walking away. >> probably shocking everyone else up here. i'm shaking because it's pretty bad. >> right now police do not have a motive for the shooting. as for the three surviving victims two men are in critical condition and one woman in stable condition at the hospital. >> thank you so much. let us turn to the presidential race. hillary clinton and bernie sanders clashed on the debate stage last night ahead of next tuesday's crucial winner take all primaries in florida and ohio. the republican candidates have their own debate tonight. both races
7:04 am
with democrats and nbc's kristen welker. >> reporter: secretary clinton and senator sanders will send the day barn storming. ohio and illinois looking a lot more competitive. the biggest prize is right here, florida. with the democrats locked in an increasingly fierce fight secretary clinton faced one of the sharpest exchanges yet. >> if you are indicted will you -- >> it's not going to happen. i'm not answering that question. >> reporter: clinton took aim at senator sanders for opposing the auto bailout. >> if everyone had voted as he voted we would not have rescued -- >> it was the wall street bailout. >> clinton used the strategy
7:05 am
primary but still lost in a stunning upset to sanders. she is hoping the attack will help win chicago. >> the candidates sparred over immigration. >> you are telling us if you become president you won't deport children? >> i would not. >> i don't think the secretary fully answered the question. i think the proof may be in the pudding. >> reporter: while both candidates took sharp aim at donald trump they deflected a question about whether he is a racist. >> i think it is unamerican. i think what he has promoted is not at all in keeping with american values. >> i think that the american people are never going to elect a president who insults mexicans, who insults muslims. >> reporter: and clinton
7:06 am
why so many voters say they don't trust her. >> i'm not a natural politician. i have a view that i just have to do the best i can. >> reporter: senator sanders still has a very steep climb in order to win the nomination he would have to win more than 65% of the delegates moving forward but he has a lot of momentum and a lot of money in his war chest. >> that momentum could be key going into next tuesday in ohio and florida. >> reporter: the stakes couldn't be higher next tuesday. if secretary clinton has a strong showing and wins florida and ill it solidifies her as a front runner and puts the race out of reach mathematically. that is something she and her team are eager to do. if senator sanders were to win in ohio or missouri this would make him
7:07 am
is making a real play for these states outpacing secretary clint in ad spending and would add to momentum. that is when you see the race stretching through the spring and possibly the convention. >> let's talk about the republicans meeting for the 12th debate of the campaign and there are signs we might not see tough personal jabs that dominated last week in detroit. peter alexander is covering the race for us. >> reporter: beautiful back drop here at the university of miami. marco rubio is candidly acknowledging that his personal mudslinging may have back fired. he is going to have to change strategies quickly if he wants to win next tuesday. >> you're g
7:08 am
president. >> reporter: donald trump looking to notch another win in north carolina. >> he has the great wall of trump. that's done with love. >> reporter: raising eyebrows when asked whether islam is at war with the west. >> i think islam hates us. there is something there that is a tremendous hatred. >> reporter: stepping in the ring with rivals the billionaire boasting he will bring home the championship belt with wins in florida and ohio next week. >> the ultimate way of doing it. if you knock him out nothing can happen. >> reporter: will marco rubio pull his punches? facing do or die in his home state the florida senator expressing regret about trading insults with trump. >> you know what they say about men with small hands. >> reporter: speaking with chuck todd. >> not something i'm entirely proud of. my kids were embarrassed by it. >> reporter: compare
7:09 am
comments last week. >> are you sorry you went there? >> no. donald trump spends a year on a regular basis. i said something one time. >> reporter: his crowd count wednesday in the hundreds in a florida stadium that seats thousands. >> our campaign has beaten donald trump not once, twice, three times but eight separate times. >> reporter: touting new support from a familiar face, carly fiorina. other people in our party are horrified by donald trump. >> reporter: john kasich's positive push may finally pay off. >> i refuse to get down in the mud to be elected president of the united states. i refuse to. >> reporter: with new poll numbers showing kasich leading trump. >> i'm going to win ohio.
7:10 am
and one outstanding question is will the former florida governor jeb bush endorse any candidates. he met with marco rubio yesterday and will be with ted cruz and john kasich today. sources tell nbc news he hasn't made a decision whether or not he will endorse. what happens tonight at the debate could effect that choice. >> who could forget last week's debate? it got so personal and so nasty. do you know about how the candidates adjusted their strategies or should we expect more of the same? >> reporter: marco rubio telegraphing the need to focus more on policy and demonstrate that donald trump is more of an empty vessel suggesting he is a better choice. ted cruz and john kasich doing the same. this is a last opportunity for all candidates trying to stop donald trump ahead of super
7:11 am
rubio said he will win his own state. john kasich said he will win his state. they may cater their mess mgs to those audiences. donald trump has won 44% of the delegates. if he winz wins florida and loses ohio he will need 59% of remaining delegates to clinch nomination. even for trump the stakes are high. >> florida, florida, florida, ohio, ohio, ohio. let's take a look at deadly storms across the south. record rain, historic flooding with tens of millions still facing tough weather today. janet shamlian is in hard-hit louisiana just east of shreveport. >> reporter: good morning. this is not over in louisiana. some homes behind me have as much as five feet of standing water in them. we are getting another storm here expected five inches of
7:12 am
this time the threat of tornadoes. for a community so battered the fear this morning what is coming next. this morning severe weather is putting millions at risk. tens of thousands still without power. record breaking rainfall and deadly flooding ravaging much of the south. waters devastating parts of east texas and louisiana. overnight's flash floods in west monroe forcing road closures as rain water inundated this shopping center. in shreveport some residents can't get back to their homes. many residences submerged to the roof. the water level so high this bridge barely clears the flooding. >> there is nowhere for the water to go. the ditches are full and continues to rain. >> reporter: cars stranded and simply abandoned in the road.
7:13 am
a river. >> i have no idea how to deal with a flooded house. >> reporter: coming to the rescue of elderly and so did the national guard. residents forced to evacuate themselves and their pets. others gathering what is left from ruined homes. >> everything you see is gone. i have a brand new roof on a house that is absolutely worthless. me and my kids lost everything today. we need dry clothes. >> reporter: there are temporary shelters for some of those displaced. >> we want to keep everybody safe through this and going to work together. we will get through it. >> reporter: those residents are anxious to see when they can return and what will be left when they do. there is not a lot left. he has three little girls, carried out the only items in their bedrooms that were dry and that was a handful of clothing. heartbreaking.
7:14 am
very much. what is going to happen with all of this? >> unfortunately, we don't have relief for at least the next 72 hours. we have an upper level low over mexico blocking high pressure. you can see this rain train coming in pushing in more rain from eastern texas into louisiana and now into mississippi. they have dropped some warnings back through central texas. 15 million people under flooding risk because it is only going to take another half an inch to inch of rain to cause more flooding. the storms move over the same cities already with saturated ground. the heaviest rain starts to shift east by tomorrow moving into alabama, panhandle of florida. look at the rainfall totals. we are expecting upwards of about seven to ten inches of rain throughout much of louisiana. that moves on into parts of mississippi and alabama and will continue to see that rain for at least 72 hours and
7:15 am
finally does dry out. right now not good. >> i haven't seen a map like that of yours in a long time. >> this is more like a hurricane, the moisture from a tropical system, these kinds of rainfall rates. there are new developments on the failed drug test by maria sharapova that she claims was an honest mistake. now a suggestion that she may have been warned multiple times that the drug in question was going to be banned. >> good morning. in two days the world's highest earning sports woman will begin a temporary ban from tennis. maria sharapova saying i wish i didn't have to go through this. the big question, is this the end of her career? she's on her knees under fire from the tennis world,
7:16 am
by some plmajor sponsors. >> are you where you are today because you follow the rules? >> sharapova broke rules and admitted it. >> i made a huge mistake. >> reporter: taking positive for meladonium. others say it is a bad day for tennis. >> the rules are like this. it's fair. now she must pay for it. >> reporter: her former coach blames her team. >> that is where her team let her down. her physical trainer, doctor, agent, coach, somebody should have looked at the list. >> reporter: anti-doping officials saying she was warned about the drug five times in a month. she was reckless says one. >> i'm sorry. if you are r
7:17 am
a year you make certain you don't make anything that makes you ineligible. >> reporter: 23 million had come from endorsements. her main sponsor, nike, has suspended her eight year $70 million deal. other sponsors are decided whether to cut ties. in an open letter to her fans sharapova says i'm determined to play tennis again and i hope i have the chance to do so. i wish i didn't have to go through this but i do and i will. the stakes are huge. it's not just the money. she faces a possible ban of four years. >> i don't want to end my career this year. >> reporter: a lengthy ban would do just that for the richest woman in tennis. there are questions, too, for that world anti-doping body. why did it allow a heart drug that was a known stimulant not
7:18 am
for decades? sharapova took it along with hundreds of world class athletes. dozens of them have not tested positive. how many more drugs are out there legal, not made for athletes but giving some a winning edge? >> that question to go around this morning. we have an update on the flint, michigan water crisis. the city says it will stop sending water bills to residents until credits can be applied to those customers. last week michigan's governor approved a $30 million plan to help residents with their water bills. flint's water was tainted with lead after the city switched from detroit's water department to the flint river back in april 2014. the city switched back to the detroit system last october. the knife reportedly found in o.j. simpson's former estate most likely not connected to the kill

7:33 am
over loud music. police responded taking away several women but authorities say no one was arrested or charged. so what caused the brawl? this morning we received an explanation saying prior to landing two customers who appeared to be intoxicated were playing loud music on a boom box speaker. several other customers asked them to turn down the music. the first two ladies refused. they were holding it up in the air. this prompted the second group of customers to approach the first group and a fight broke out. i feel like i just did play by play in a boxing match. a boom box on a plane. >> were no charges filed because it happened once the plane was on the ground? >> that's the stunning part, no one was arrested or charged. if there is a physical altercation -- we got to the

7:44 am
peace of mind in that at all. and i really made a decision to look at her and look at us through a different lens, through a more living, forgiving lens that doesn't mean that it was a smooth journey. it was not. there was still a lot of peaks and valleys in there and a lot of really deep valleys. >> anything left unsaid or did you get everything out? did she get everything out? >> i think so but not in a way that i think you are asking. i think my mother was not someone who would have been comfortable with an analytical conversation about let's talk about -- let's work through this. it's different generation. and i think that needs to be respected. i think the better route is to just behave differently. >> it's hard to learn how to ha
7:45 am
public stage. >> i get now why i behaved the way i did and why i acted out in the way i did and wrote things i wish i could remove from the face of the earth but i can't. i did have an incredibly public family. the feeling is one of being sort of invisible and excluded and marginalized in all of that. it was my attempt to go see and hear me. i did it completely the wrong way. >> there has been so much written about their relationship and this incredible love story and that everybody else really was outside the two of them. did you feel like that as children? >> it was as if a band of gypsies came and took me and ron away they would miss us but they would be fine. they would go on.
7:46 am
us. it meant their lives wouldn't be destroyed if we weren't there. they were complete unto each other. and that can be a complicated thing for children. where i came to in my life and with her is to be really happy for her that she had this great love in her life. >> much is being said that your mother couldn't wait to be reunited with your father. >> she told me once that she was not afraid to die. she said i don't want it to hurt. i'm not afraid to die. i'll see ronnie again. they were my parents. so, yes, america has lost a former first lady. i lost my mother. and i am happy for her that she is with my father now. >> patti davis says all
