and trouble for taylor. the new video that has the "shake it off" superstar shaken up this morning. swift seeing red after a fan grabs her during a concert. how she managed to go on with the show in style. ♪ shake it off ♪ and good morning, america. let's get right to the news starting with that scene that is so scary and so sadly familiar these last few months, another attack at an american movie theater. >> yeah this time it was outside nashville during a showing of the movie "mad max." police and s.w.a.t. teams wasting no time descending on the scene. >> abc's steve osunsami there right now. he starts us off. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning to you, george. this is now the second shooting at a movie theater in the last few weeks and people who were inside thought they were going to die. without question, this is making people across the country even more nervous about going to the movies. >> he pulled out like a hatchet and started attacking this
7:02 am
family and then pulled out a gun and we all ran out of the theater. >> reporter: police say this is the man who sent people running for their lives at a nashville area movie theater 29-year-old vicente david montano. witnesses say he stood up in the middle of an afternoon showing the new "mad max" movie wearing a surgical mask and two backpacks and carrying what police say now was a fake gun. he started hitting people with this hatchet and blasting them with pepper spray. around 1:13 p.m. the first 911 calls came in. >> it was a lot of shots. it was coming from the side of the theater. >> reporter: just minutes later an officer nearby responds. police say montano is firing a plastic gun that shoots plastic pellets but say it looks and sounds like a semiautomatic pistol. officer jonathan frith shoots back but with real bullets. montano answers him by filling the auditorium with pepper spray as terrified people inside the theater run. the police force him out of the theater where a small army is now waiting and firing.
7:03 am
he dies in a hail of gunfire. one of the theater's customers wounded in the shoulder by that hatchet says he's thankful no one else was seriously hurt. >> i would also like to thank all of the citizens who gathered around us, helped my daughter when we were pepper sprayed. that kind of gives me a little bit more faith in humanity again. >> reporter: police have yet to share a motive but underline this is the second attack at a movie theater this summer and they worry. >> this is maybe what we call the new normal, and we can't just shut down america. we carry on. >> reporter: police say this man had a history of mental health issues and given what happened in aurora and lafayette where people were killed they're thanking the police. george. >> they got there so fast. steve, thanks very much. we'll move on to breaking news in the search for that malaysian airlines flight that went missing a year and a half
7:04 am
ago. officials this morning say they have recovered more debris that may be from flight 370. as malaysian officials say a piece of wing washed ashore is from that plane, french officials will not confirm that yet. abc's david wright is in paris with all the latest. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, lara. we still don't know if that new debris is actually from flight 370. only one confirmed piece of the plane so far, and for the family members, understandable frustration at the mixed signals. they have the big answer they need but still so many questions. on reunion island new reports of wreckage handed over to the authorities here in france. >> we knew -- >> reporter: malaysian officials say it appears to be a plane window, some aluminum foil and some other items. but this is the only confirmed piece of the jigsaw puzzle conclusively identified by investigators as a wing flap from a boeing 777. there's only one plane of that type unaccounted for in the world, proof enough for the malaysian prime minister.
7:05 am
>> flight mh370 tragically ended in the southern indian ocean. >> reporter: but sources tell abc news the investigators here have not been able to match a serial number to the part. [ speaking a foreign language ] raising here it's a strong presumption the part is actually from the plane. we still don't know why the plane crashed or where, and even though the wing flap washed up on reunion island, the currents could have dragged it an ocean away from the crash site. >> the real answer to what's happened to this airplane is sitting at the bottom of the ocean. >> reporter: for those family members waiting so long, more frustration. >> i'm not disappointed. i'm disgusted. i think the whole 17 months has been horrible. it's been handled appallingly. >> reporter: even now still not the answers they need. >> it's a very painful thing to go through. not knowing anything. >> reporter: as for that new debris still unconfirmed, the french investigators will be
7:06 am
having a strong look at everything hoping that if they get more pieces of the puzzle, they may finally have some answers. george. >> we certainly hope so. okay, david, thanks very much. we're going to turn now to tonight's main event, the first presidential debate for the republican. the top ten candidates face off in cleveland, the very same arena where one of them will be nominated next july. abc's tom llamas is there and, tom, i've never seen a debate this early with such high stakes. >> reporter: that's right, george, and good morning. usually it's lebron who brings the action at this arena but tonight it's the republicans, and as you mentioned, there is so much hype, so many people and so much trump. this morning, republican candidates hard at work preparing for tonight's debate, but not the front-runner, donald trump. a senior adviser telling abc news, trump doesn't rehearse. the billionaire, who is still in new york, has been lowering expectations. >> i've never debated before. i'm not a debater. >> reporter: telling george wednesday that he doesn't plan on throwing the first punch. >> i don't want to attack
7:07 am
anybody and, you know, maybe i'll be attacked and maybe not. i'd rather just discuss the issues. >> reporter: overnight "gma" getting a first look at how the candidates are gearing up for the debate. >> i like to be mentally focused. >> i take my new phone thanks to the donald and listen to motown. >> before a debate i go out to run. it's a great way to relax. >> before a debate, i normally call my mom to get advice. >> reporter: the lighthearted videos made by the conservative news website independent journal review. >> let me check on that. >> reporter: tonight the top ten candidates will fight to break out and fight for time. only two hours including commercial breaks, that's only about ten minutes per candidate and some may try to draw a difference with trump now dealing with a damaging report. trump spoke with president bill clinton on the phone about his political inclinations just weeks before he jumped into the race, a sign he may be too up close and personal with the clintons. >> i wouldn't be surprised if in the course of the debate, this conversation about bill clinton and how genuine of a republican or how real authentic a
7:08 am
conservative donald trump is, i think it could easily become part of that equation. >> reporter: now, there are more than ten republican debates and right now 17 candidates, but this debate is important. you'll remember during 2012 so many republicans either skyrocketed or collapsed because of a debate. george. >> yeah, one candidate had to drop out after the first debate. okay, tom, thanks very much. let's break this down with jon karl starting out with that phone call. depending who you talk to it was a courtesy call or a strategy session. >> if you listen to the trump people, they told me that this -- that president clinton said trump would have a huge impact on the republican party if he were to get involved, that he would be a disrupter, somebody that could have an impact on the entire political system. if you talk to the clinton people, they say the 2016 race didn't even come up, but, george, this call happened in late may right after hillary announced and just a couple weeks before trump announced. >> meantime, you know, i was struck by one of the fox moderators said. he said we don't want to make
7:09 am
this the donald trump show but it is. >> it is. they both get a minute to respond to questions but if their name gets mentioned by another candidate they get an extra 30 seconds. every time you mention trump's name he gets another 30 seconds. facebook is out with this, starting from the bottom up, scott walker, about 3 million people talking about him, ted cruz, about the same. bush, 5 million. bernie sanders, about the same. hillary clinton, 11 million. look at trump's number, 26 million. he basically has twice as many as hillary clinton and jeb bush combined. >> so, the other candidates don't want to give him more air time, but they all have to be ready. >> yes, especially jeb bush, who will be standing right next to trump at center stage. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. >> and every time they utter his name, another chance. >> another 30 seconds. >> for him. going to have to come up with a nickname. all right. moving on now to that monster storm tearing through the pacific ocean. take a look at this image of it from space taken by astronauts scott kelly.
7:10 am
at its peak it was the strongest storm of the year. now it's headed straight for land. ginger zee has all the latest. >> yeah, the current satellite takes it just east of taiwan, look at that thing, it's moving only at 12 miles an hour and will target taiwan in the next 24 to 36 hours. that's going to be the worst of it and the heftiest side of that storm is usually the right side, so northeast corner, the coast where the storm surge, flash flooding, talking noon tomorrow our time and just after and then it'll make into the strait of taiwan and eventually east china but taipei is what we're concerned about this morning and one of the world's tallest buildings is there and our neal karlinsky is on top. >> reporter: we're way up near the top right now and being in a 101-story building made of glass might seem like a terrible idea in the middle of a typhoon but they insist it can take it. they've been built to withstand 134-mile-per-hour winds but this typhoon might come in with winds up to 140 miles per hour. >> neal was talking were the gusts at 140 miles per hour.
7:11 am
but when we put the sustained winds, the constant wind of 100 plus miles per hour, fortunately taipei is on that one side of the mountain so may have a little protection. i'm mostly concerned about flash flooding, some of the smaller villages at the bottom. this is going to be a big storm and we'll be talking about it for the next 36 hours. >> i'm sure we will, thank you, ginger. turning now to a major security breach at the new orleans airport where a driver crashed through a fence right onto an active runway. abc's jim avila has the story. >> reporter: is this a warning to america's airports? a simple sedan takes out two fences at new orleans louis armstrong international airport. making it all the way onto an active runway. >> down on the taxiway there. do you know who he is? >> we don't even know who that is. it's a random vehicle. >> reporter: the dark blue dodge challenger with a 23-year-old male at the wheel penetrated airport security, jamming through one fence and onto the tarmac. then as police approach, the driver almost immediately gunned it again and punched through a
7:12 am
second fence, finally arrested just off airport property charged with hit-and-run and drunk driving. no other airport damage done and no planes even delayed. but just this spring the associated press found america's airport perimeters had been breached at least 268 times since 2004. some of them caught on tape like this driver being chased by police right onto the massive dallas/ft. worth runway or this san diego runway incursion by a pedestrian in full view of a pilot and his passengers and, of course, there was this famous runway incursion in philadelphia where a jeep driven by another inebriated man led police on a chase through the airfield. these runways are supposed to be secure, and some airports do have ground sensors, but as we saw in new orleans too often all that's between planes and trouble is a chain link fence. lara. >> that's scary. jim avila, thank you so much. turning now to the end of an
7:13 am
era. jon stewart signs off as host of "the daily show" tonight, a job he's been doing since 1999. our chris connelly looks back at some of stewart's best moments behind the desk. [ applause ] >> welcome, welcome to "the daily show." craig kilborn is on assignment in kuala lumpur. i'm jon stewart. [ laughter ] >> reporter: that was 16 years ago. >> am i crazy? >> wicked -- >> reporter: tonight jon stewart's last as host of "the daily show" ending a run that saw the former mtv star deploying smarts and a bs detector to become one of the most trusted sensibilities in tv news. >> progressives think they know better than you do. >> i didn't know that's what i wanted. but i guess i want to control every aspect of your life. >> reporter: with wit and wisecracks and savage parody. >> are you willing, mr. president, to trust governor bush with our foreign policy? >> i am not willing to take that chance again, jon.
7:14 am
>> reporter: and occasionally profundity. >> the view from my apartment was the world trade center, and now it's gone. >> reporter: stuart's talons made for insightful and seriously funny television. >> i'm sorry. i'll be wearing overalls and i won't shower. [ laughter ] >> reporter: whether he was interviewing a fellow comic like louis c.k. >> i've been on "letterman" a bunch of times. i don't think i ever touched his face. >> i don't think i ever touched his face. >> reporter: challenging former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld. >> let me just deflate the tension right off the bat. apology accepted.

7:15 am
be regarded as a beacon guiding his viewers through a sea of cynicism and by others more as the relentless nemesis of fox news. >> i know you're very frightened and i want to tell you everything is going to be okay. there you go, baby. get that going. that stuff down. >> reporter: though comic trevor noah will asuper the chair in the mind of his fans stewart remains impossible to replace. a true anchor. >> it's been an absolute privilege. it's been the honor of my my professional life. >> reporter: for "good morning america," chris connelly, abc news, los angeles. >> complete path breaker. >> yeah. >> brought something brand-new to all of us. >> so well respected. oh, he said i'm a comedian but so much more than that. he'll be missed. now, though we turn to amy for today's other top stories starting with a serious story, an accused cop killer on the run. >> that's correct. a manhunt is under way in louisiana for the suspect who sought and killed a shreveport police officer who was responding to reports of an armed man threatening someone inside a home. the officer whose name has not been released was gunned down as he arrived at the scene. also happening this morning,

8:14 am
is from mobile devices but only 15% of the sales. why do we browse on mobile but then change devices to make purchases on a computer? and by avoiding shopping via apps, are we missing out on big deals? well, to find out i've got to buy some clothes. shopping on your phone, okay, first off the screen is kind of small. most people will window shop on the phone but they don't hit the buy button until they get on a computer. how come? ah, expiration, security code. entering your information is laborious. okay, this part, it's just a pain, and in a study by comscore shoppers said they struggled to find discount codes on their phones. >> i do probably about 90% of my purchases on my mobile device. >> reporter: but guess who loves to shop via smartphone millennials, especially fashion bloggers, so we turned to some

8:16 am
on sale, providing coupons and things like that. >> reporter: so i took their advice, used the app, hit the buy button. the moment of truth. i like it. and you know what, buying on my phone was actually a lot easier and more fun than i would have thought. now, one of the biggest reasons people say they don't buy on their phones is they worry about security. but the truth is, data being transmitted over a cell signal is more secure than when you transmit your credit card info and your personal details on wi-fi and as all the credit card hacks in the news have told us, george, the weakest link is how the retailer secures your financial data, not how it's transmitted. >> yeah. we have certainly learned that. so it's easy and it's fun. you're satisfied. how about savings? >> yeah, the interesting thing is that all of these
8:17 am
apps work like loyalty cards and they track what you purchase, they give you points and then after a certain threshold is hit, they will e-mail you a gift certificate to use on the app. they also alert you when there's sales and offer you codes and if you enable push notifications at your favorite stores, then you'll know when items you want go on sale. >> okay. thanks a lot. >> sounds dangerous. >> yeah. >> in a good way. >> research it very soon. all right, thanks, beck. up next in our "heat index," oversharing online. it does happen all the time and it's a turnoff to so many. but for couples bonding on facebook, it could be a good thing. jesse palmer is here to explain. hey, jess. >> hey, lara you know, however you may feel about those dating couples who post everything about their relationship on facebook, well, new research finds that the couple who overshares together is more likely to stay together. taylor swift and calvin harris do it. chrissy teigen and john legend love it, and kaitlyn bristow and new fiance sean can't stop. sharing pictures and updates about your love life on social media has become the norm these days.
8:18 am
>> likes and comments tend to be really meaningful in terms of validation. >> reporter: and it turns out posting may be a good thing. a new survey of 180 college students finding that oversharing on facebook could be a predictor of lasting love. >> the more people presented themselves as part of a couple by listing themselves as in a relationship, posting lots of photographs and writing a lot on their partner's wall, the more committed they felt towards their partner, and after six months the more likely they were to remain together. >> reporter: an enduring relationship may not be so complicated after all because of what the researchers call public commitment effect. >> people don't like for there to be a gap between who they claim to be publicly and who they actually are. >> reporter: so could social media silence be a sign of trouble? maybe so. gwen stefani hasn't posted a pic with hubby gavin rossdale since december 2014 and it's been 18 weeks since miranda wlam bert

8:20 am
and only 8% of you said yes. an overwhelming 92% voted no. >> i think we're looking at this the wrong way. if you're putting those photos out there, it probably means you have a great relationship so it's just a window into your life. it's not because you are overshare. >> i think it's okay if you show one a day maybe but when you start going four five six times a day, like give me a grumpy cat meme. >> in terms of sharing -- >> exactly. that's why we call it oversharing. >> agreed. >> should we get out to ginger? ginger zee, where are you? >> i'm right out here with a birthday girl from asheville. your name. >> kylie. >> kylie, we are so happy you're spending the day with us. we are so happy that it's nice and cool and comfortable this morning, isn't it? beautiful here in new york city. far from that back in the plains. look, dallas is in that heat advisory, excessive heat warning just north of them. this is going through the weekend. so this is not just one or two days, it is an extended period of time where you'll feel like you're 100 to 110 degrees. and in the carolinas you will actually be seeing some showers, even some flash flooding possible the next 24
