5:00 am
your shipping manager left to “find themself.” leaving you lost. you need to hire. i need indeed. indeed you do. indeed instant match instantly delivers quality candidates matching your job description. visit . >> good morning to our viewers here and all over the world. it is may 26th. i am in uvalde, texas. brianna keilar is in texas. we stand outside the robb elementary school. you can see the sign there. there were people walking up all day yesterday with flower es and balloons.
5:01 am
overnight, the cross. one for each of the 19 children and two teachers who died here. >> this was the digital community last night. everyone came together. you can see the pain and the tears, which really does feel like a small town, 15,000 people. it's hard to find anyone that does not have a direct connection to one of the victims. she was 10-years-old. she want wanted go to disney world. maria bravo is remembered for a young girl who put a smile on everyone's face. we are telling their stories this morning. a 4th grade teacher who sacrificed herself trying to protect the children. a grieving father who find out
5:02 am
his daughter died trying to save her classmates. we told yesterday then of the bodies were turned over to the families of the funeral homs. the rest will be turned over this morning so that the families can make arrangements. >> we do have if you details about how the mass shooting up f unfolded. the 18-year-old was on school grounds for up to an hour. moments before the attack, he senttual, text messages to a girl in germany he had met online. an armed officers confronted the shooter outside the school. the shooter managed to get in the building, though he dropped a bag of ammunition before he entered. we are just learning there is surveillance video. president biden is coming in the coming days to visit with families. >> i spoke with a pediatric trauma medical director at
5:03 am
university health san antonio, where three children are being treated. >> thoroughly speaking, we were treated destructive enrollment. what that means is there were large areas of tissue missing from the body and they required emergency surgery because there was significant blood loss. >> reporter: the i know this is your job. i also know that not every day is the same and this had to be particularly difficult for you and all of your colleagues. you can talk about that? >> yeah. you know, i think it was a difficult day for all of the meds. from our standpoint, we had the
5:04 am
experience of several wumd at our level 1 pediatric center. in that experience, we prepared for this mass casualty and gathered teams of surgeons, anesthe anesthesiologists, pediatricians very quickly and we were -- and also the experience, we realize we're dealing with high velocity firearm injuries, we may not get a whole lot of patients. i think that's what has the most, not applications that we did receive, we are treatment. but the patients that we did not receive. that i think that is the most
5:05 am
challenging aspect of our job right now. >> and what a commentary i think at this point if you have experience. it says something that you and your teammates are experienced in dealing with mass shooter events. as you said, in a way, it is unusual to receive injuries that you can treat. i do also know that there were some who arrived deceased already at the hospital, which makes it even harder. as i said, officials have told us that one of the patients being treated in your facility is the grandmother, the 56-year-old woman who was shot by the killer here. anything you can tell us about her condition this morning? >> she's critical but stable as well. >> doctor, how are you doing
5:06 am
this morning? >> you know, i'm doing great. i am have a whole day of surgery planned for our team. we are making our rounds. we know, i think that is [ inaudible ] a little shooken up. but my job is to be focused. our job at the trauma center is to be focused on treating the patients that we did receive and that's what we're going to do today. >> i just want to give our thanks again to the doctor, a real professional. i don't think she was expecting for it to get to her like it did this morning. but it's overwhelming. it's overwhelming when you stop to let yourself think about what happened, even for someone like this doctor who has seen this
5:07 am
before, who went through this treating patients, another mass unit, just a short distance from here. so again, our thanks to her. our thanks to the work that she is doing. we are getting more developments into the investigation as to how this unfolded. we talked to chris olivares, department or public safety. there will be an investigation trying to piece together the time line. a few known details. number one, the school resource officer who did engage with the killer before he got in the building, he was armed. he did have a gun. at this point they have no evidence that he used it. >> you know, i think you made a very good point with the leiutenant, this is not about second-guessing. but we need answers, right, these parents need answers. emotions are really starting to run high here. i think in the days to come, we are seeing from this doctor, we will see more emotion as we get ready for funerals and more
5:08 am
stories are starting to come out about what was going on here? some are from the parents out here carrying the gunshot, standing out here as their kids are inside listening to gunshots. so that hole here is reneed to have answers as to why it took so long for police to get inside the school and essentially kill this gunman, neutralize this gunman. we could have had these shootings sadly time and time again. every expert you speak to. every police department is trained to go in immediately to get to the shooter to stop the gunfire and it just seems like we don't have those answers here yet. obviously, they're still sort through a lot of information. one of the things that happen here is a lot of officers who responded were not from this area. so that can be why they still haven't interviewed a lot of
5:09 am
these officers. but we should know by now whether an officer exchanged gunfire with the gunman, whether the officer was wounded and why it is that officer didn't, what was the reason for this? also the issue with the door. >> not locked? >> not locked. it was the back door that the gunman used to get inside the school was not locked. >> the gap you are talking about, so people understand, the two officers did follow the shooter into the building. there was an exchange of gun tire after he got inside. it's not clear whether the officer made it inside the door or not. it sounds like they might have, exchange of fire, they were wounded. they backed off. then there was a gap between when he had gotten into the classroom and this tactical team went in. we don't know how long, it's not clear whether that was the moment the shooter arrived or got in the classroom. but there is a period of time when there was law enforcement
5:10 am
on the scene, absolutely. no one disputes that, they were not going in, they were getting other people out of the building, which may be the case. but the question is, were there people here who could have or maybe should have been trying to get past that door sooner? >> right. who was in charge? who took the lead in those critical moments of when they decided that they were not going to storm the classroom or whether they were going to storm the classroom, who was the lead in deciding to put this tactical team together? we don't know. just quite simply, we don't know so much. the thing is they were waiting for the border patrol officers. that itself the tactical team that ultimately arrived together with some of the sheriffs officers that they formed this team to go in. cdp brings 80 officers. it took some time. what was going on in those
5:11 am
crucial moments while they waited for the tactical team. the officers, the school resource officer and that team only four officers. it's a small town. the police department isn't big enough. you have a sheriffs office. everyone is supposed to be training for these moments to respond quickly, get in there and stop it. we need answers, i think stories will come out from these parents that need the answers. >> we could learn more. thanks so much for being with us this morning. >> 10-year-old anne marie garza was trying to do everything she could to save her classmate was. his father recounted her bravery in the final moments. >> you have a picture of your daughter, she just one honor roll. >> yeah. she -- we worked with her. she was just trying to do the right thing. she was just trying to call the
5:12 am
gods. she is so scared of just strangers and things like this, like she would lock the door when i would step out to put gas in the car. like this is literally like her worst fear. she was just trying to help everyone. >> she talk of something like this? >> so i'm a med aid. so when i arrived on the scene, they started where eing the kids out. and i was aiding assistance. one little girl was covered in blood head-to-toe. i thought she was injured. i asked her what was wrong. she says she was okay. shelves hysterical saying they kill her best friend. she's not breathing when she was trying to call the comes. i asked the little girl the name. and she told me, she said anne ma ry.
5:13 am
>> that's how you learned? >> she was so sweet. she was the sweetest little girl two did nothing wrong. she listened to her mom and dad. she always -- she was creative. she made things for us. she never got in trouble in school. i just want to know what she did to be a victim? >> reporter: she is a big sister. you have a three-year-old? >> i have a three-year-old son named zain. who i asks for his sister every morning when he wakes up. >> he doesn't know at this point
5:14 am
i assume? >> we've informed him that his sister is now with god and that she will no longer be with us and, of course, he just cried. i mean, he's 3-years-old and it's very emotional for him to p process. it was two weeks ago. >> you had a party for what? >> the family had a dinner. she just got her phone. she wanted it for so long. we finally got it for her. she just tried to call -- >> she actually tried to call? >> yeah. yes, i got confirmation from two
5:15 am
of the students in her classroom that she was just trying to call authorities and i guess he just shot her. how do you kill this girl? oh, my baby. i need you, my baby. oh. i'm sorry. i'm sorry. >>. >> how is your wife? >> i want to ask everybody to keep my wife in their prayers. anne marie had the best mother she did everything she could for her daughter. she is beating herself up so bad about this. and baby, it's not your fault. we just want you to be happy.
5:16 am
>> anything else you wanted to know about her? >> i want people to know she died trying to save her classmate. she wanted to save everyone. >>
5:17 am
5:18 am
5:19 am
. we do have new video just
5:20 am
into cnn of the gun man entering the door at the robb elementary school. this happened on tuesday. we just learned that this door was unlocked. we were also just told a school resource officer that confronted the gunman before he entered the building was armed. but at this point we don't know for sure whether he fired his weapon. there is no evidence at this point that he did so. meanwhile, this shocked community is in morning trying to come to the other, amid the enormous loss. i am joined by erin douglas at the texas tribune. you have been out talking to people and it has a small town feel and so many people we talk to have a connection. what are you hearing. >> it's a town of 15,000 residence. that is the one thing is that
5:21 am
everyone grew up together. kid grew up together. grand parents grew up together. everyone knows everyone. and every single person i have talked to has had some sort of connection with the students or adults that died in the shooting. >> the justice of the peace told me, he went to school here. when he went in to identify the body, he knew he knew one of the teachers. she was one year behind him. he went to the blood drive here. what was that like? >> yeah, the blood drive was yesterday morning. when i arrived. i arrived early, the line was already wrapped around the block. hundreds came out. they wanted to help in anyway they could. they actually outstripped the capacity. but south texas tissue center, because they had so many people
5:22 am
to show up. they asked them to come back later, the operations officer called it a beautiful and incredible turnout. >> more than they could process at this point. in one of the articles you wrote, was at a church, a prayer service and actually spoke to someone who sat next to the mother of the killer here. who was another that prayer service. talk to us about what was learned. >> yeah, so my colleague learned one woman, individual, at the church said that she spoke to the other of the shooter. he prayed with her. sobbing and said we need to have forgiveness. i told her, it wasn't her fault is what she said and the community would pray with her and heal with her. >> this community is praying together as you do, we

. senators are holding bipartisan talks on gun legislation. the talks come in the wake of this mass shooting in texas, where 19 children were killed inside of their classrooms him some of those lawmakers are making an impassioned plea, anything to prevent future tragedies. >> 19 children who will never grow up to have another birthday and two teachers killed just doing their job and protecting the kids. another day in america. another mass shooting. it is devastating that this kind of mass shooting can happen here. it is unconscionable that it happens over and over. it is unforgivable that we as
5:28 am
leaders come together and mouth words and do nothing. it's too late to prevent the last shooting. we're already failed those victims and families. we need to act to prevent the next shooting. we need to identify the risks and threats and finally do something. >> joining us now is senator dick durbin of illinois, the democratic whip and chair of the judiciary committee as well f. you can tells e tell us these bipartisan conversations going on between senators? >> we've issued an invitation, a good faith invitation for republicans to join ug in a conversation. the big question is this, is uvalde, texas, the tipping point? is this what we have been waiting for? we had so many opportunities. we looked at the high school in florida, the grade school in connecticut. you think that is so outrageous, we cannot fail to do something
5:29 am
in response. we did fail. my question is, is texas any different? i hope in this respect i hope it is. i hope it motivates all of us to sit down and be honest with one another of what we can achieve as a nation. >> you said there is an invitation. there are open discussions, we heard senior chris murphy is discussing. he mentioned the red flag law, the background checks. >> those are the obvious. they come in time and again when these mass shootings talk place. there are other elements in here. i'm not sure what this first step will include. i will certainly put those on the list. there are other approaches. it's a question of whether or not we have reached that point. i sense that many people in america have had it. i mean, whether it's parents in chicago or my own family involving my grandchildren. i am getting communications, the likes of which i have not seen
5:30 am
before, they're genuinely worried about the safety of doing the ordinary things in life and with that worry, i hope it's a motivation first to get off the dime and do something to make america safer. >> senator sinema is talking to republicans. what do you hope will come of that? >> i can't say her agenda, people are reaching out. all of that is a positive thing, just stone silence and no response at all, it would be discouraging. but the fact that there is a genuine effort for conversation may lead to something positive. i am keeping an open minds. i am reading some republican bills that have been rejected before and saying, well, is there a general possibility here, where we can really move to something that gives parents and families across america a sense of security. >> which bills, which republican bills? >> i'm not going to get into specifics. you'd like me too, i'm sure. the media always wants to know what is specific and how soon
5:31 am
will you bring it to us. this is going to be a painful process, slower than it should be but i hope it's a good faith process and i hope that some republicans will join us publicly saying they are willing to try. >> the media shows the impatience of parents and parents across the country. understandably so here. senator markey says republicans are playing rope-a-dope. they are running out the clocked him could he be right? >> i hope not. ed is a friend of mine, i know him. he looks for solutions. we will know if this passes or sadly is forgotten. it shouldn't be, when you look at the paper of the "new york times", the profile on the kid, the pictures, the stories, the families and the quotes. you read it and think, my god, as i said before, these poor little children will not see another birthday. what was that first night at
5:32 am
home when the parents looked in the empty room and realized that little boy or girl is never coming home. that's the reality of what happened in texas. it happened before and it shouldn't. get off the dime and do something. >> so then, why go on break? why add times to the clock? >> listen, i can tell you, i would like the solution to come tomorrow. it's naive, we can sit down in a few hours. it's going to take more time than that. we have a vote today, bring to the floor on domestic terrific to gather information about the extreme conduct that is leading to violence. it relates specifically to what was written by the gunman in buffalo. it's a chance for us to have a vote. i hope it is bipartisan support of it. whether it is or it isn't, we still got a job to do. over the course of this break from memorial day to our veterans, our staff will be working together i hope to find
5:33 am
some solutions. >> but they are talking in person and like you said, it per tapes to buffalo. right? not to this particular shooting. i believe right now it is not expected to prevail. and so, they're talking in person, democrats and republicans right now. they go away. they're not talking in person, in person, sitting down across from each other having a discussion at this time when we have been seeing mass shootings going on now for little kids now for more than a decade at schools. >> well, i understand your f feeling. this morning by own daughter texted me, sending her kids off to school and asked me, who are you doing, dad? how are you responding to this? there is an impatience. it's natural. because everyone wants to protect these kids. i feel the same way about it. trust me. work will be started. it has been started early.
5:34 am
and will continue throughout this break, the few days we have been gone a. week from now. a little more than a week we return. i hope we've got something to work with. >> what do you sa toy your daughter when she asks you that? >> i will try my best. i love those kids. she does, too. it's painful to think the fears the families have across the country after what happened in texas and florida and connecticut and so many other places. >> why not have a vote right now on background check legislation that was previously acceptable to a bipartisan group? >> i'm not opposed to that. >> at this moment, like immediate? >> well, that isn't the way the senate works. what senator schumer has done is to set this bill before us. it is a motion to proceed. which means we are putting a bill on the floor. it's open to amendment. i hope some republicans will see this as an invitation to bring
5:35 am
it to the floor. i think this is a good faith effort on our part to say come to the door in bipartisan fashion and solve this problem. the american people want to see that happen. perhaps today will be the beginning. if we pass this motion, i will offer it today on this bill, we can return to specific proposals in just a few days, maybe ten days, they will be on the floor of the senate. that i think is an opportunity we shouldn't waste. >> well, nothing happens today in the senate, we are all certainly well aware of the clock. if you do start the clock, it can happen sooner or later. if the senate didn't go on break, you could sigh something happen sooner than ten days, right? >> trust me, work will be done and should be done. the idea it can all be solved by next tuesday is wishful thinking. that isn't the way important laws addressing issues that have been debated for decades are really arrived at. because doing it in a
5:36 am
thoughtful, olderly way with a good faith approach. i think the motion to proceed is a good faith offer by the democrats. do you know how many times we have brought the bill to floor and said this is opened to amendment. i don't think it's happened at all this year. this is an extraordinary offer by senator schumer, democrats. i hope the republicans will seize the opportunity to come together. the american people desperately want us to do it in a timely way. but timely in senate terms is not a matter of hours, it's a matter of days. >> it certainly is. it has days on it perhaps is the way to do it in the senate. senator dick durbin. i appreciate you being with us. thank you. >> thanks. we have new details coming into cnn on just how long the gunman was able to barricade himself inside that one classroom before law enforcement shot and killed him. and the chilling messages that he sent just minutes beforehand. ♪ ♪

5:41 am
robb elementary school behind you. let's take another look at this video here. you could see a little bit more clearly now. there is the shooter as he is entering the building, a building that we now know he entered through an unlocked door. we learned that just moments ago, leiutenant chris olivares telling us the door was unlocked as the shooter went in. we are also told moments ago, there was a school resource officer outside. we knew that, who did engage with the shooter. we now know the school resource officer was, in fact, armed. it's not clear, however, whether or not he fired that weapon. at this point there is no evidence that we have heard that he did. we are getting much more information about that as the morning progresses. in the meantime, this is a community, a very close-knit community that continues to grieve this morning. i'm going to go to cnn's rosa flores who is in the town's
