"the chronicle" is reporting a witness said the suspect was yelling and behaving erratically as the previews were wrapping up before a showing of "allied." another witness says after the suspect pulled the gun, the man stayed seated as other people were running out of the theater. one patron who had been hoping to see the late show instead felt lucky he wasn't inside when all this went down. >> scary. glad i wasn't there.

6:37 am
expected about 25 more democrats. so far they've picked up about six seats. still some districts, believe it or not, that are still counting. it's not where they wanted to be. the central question seems to be can a big city liberal democrat appeal to many of those rural working class voters who were such a force in this last election, or are they more attracted to someone like tim ryan. one important thing here, nancy pelosi raises a lot of money for democrats, $141 million in this last election cycle. she goes away, some of that faund raising could go away as well. the voting is under way right now for that and several other leadership positions. we're told it could take several hours, possibly into mid afternoon but that we may get some bored about the leader position in the next hour, hour and a half. back to you. we'll certainly cover that. thank you very much, tracy. 6:37. also happening today, president-elect trump launching a new tour, a victory tour.
