things. i have no words. i don't know. >> cnn's ed lavandera begins our coverage. >> reporter: two days after the mass shooting at robb elementary, the story of what happened when the gunman arrived on the campus has fundamentally changed. >> there is a lot of possibilities. i don't have enough information to answer that question just yet. >> reporter: the new details revealed in a bewildering press conference from the department of public safety. >> he walked in unobstructed. he was not confront by anybody. to clear the record on that. >> reporter: police revilsed reports that he engaged with an officer. 12 minutes passed when the suspect grashd his grandmother's truck tuesday morning and when he entered the school through an unlocked back door. >> he went at 11:40. he walked an approximate 20 feet. 30 feet, he makes a right. he walks into the hallway.
11:03 pm
another right. another 20 feet. turns left into a school room. into a classroom that has doors open in the middle. officers are there. the initial officers received gun fire. they don't make entry because of the gunfire. >> reporter: police say most of the gunfire was in the initial minutes. there was a stand-off for almost an hour before police forced their way into a classroom and killed him. the question remains, why they couldn't get to the gunman sooner. >> can you explain why he was barricaded? we've been given bad information. why don't you clear all this up? >> shooting, shooting. hitting the dirt on the floor. >> the bullets? from where? >> i guess he was coming from the school this way. >> reporter: parents were frustrated police wouldn't let them help them save their children despite safety procedures that keep people away from an active crime scene. jesse rodriguez lost his daughter in the shooting. he is angered by what he saw officers doing outside the

11:05 pm
fruflting and angering many parents here. what is still not clear is what the responding officers inside the school were doing during the hour the gunman was barricaded inside the classroom. cnn, uvalde, texas. >> the families. those shot and killed at robb elementary school have already endured days of pain and grief. and now it gets even harder as they try to prepare funeral arrangements for their lost loved ones. and another victim has been identified. the family of a little did a salazar confirms that the 11-year-old died in tuesday's horrific shooting. her parents say she was an active child who loved to run. tiktok videos and dance. her grandfather said our hearts are shattered. lucy cavanagh on the victims whose lives were cut far too short. >> reporter: look at their faces. she just had her first baptism

11:08 pm
a pediatric trauma director describes them as critical but stable, wishing there were more lives she could save. >> i think that's what's hit us the most, not of the patients that we did receive and we are honored to treat them, but the patients that we did not receive. that is the most challenging aspect of our job right now. >> reporter: the flores family was among those who rushed to hospitals in search of their children. it was there that jose flores sr. lived the moment that would befall 21 families in this close-knit community. >> so i didn't get to hold her no more. i didn't get to see her. >> reporter: and a tragic footnote to the piece you just watched. you saw those images of irma garcia, the elementary schoolteacher gunned down in tuesday's massacre. cnn has sadly learned that her husband, joe garcia, collapsed and died on thursday morning.
11:09 pm
he was preparing for her funeral. he suffered a heart attack, but his family says they believe he died of a broken heart after losing the love of his life for more than 25 years. lucy kafanov, cnn, san antonio, texas. >> so so many wondering, how do they make sure this doesn't happen again? the top republican in the u.s. senate is saying he may be willing to work on bynum legislation to respond to the shooting. minority leader mitch mcconnell exclusively told cnn, he's asked fellow republican john corbyn to see if he can find middle ground with democrats. they want to bring two background check bills that have already passed in the house to the senate floor. one democrat says the bipartisan talks take too long, votes will be used to force republicans to go on the record. >> if we don't succeed, we're having votes.
11:10 pm
we're putting people on the records. one way or the other, we're going to have a debate here. we're going on force people to tell america which side they are on. right? so we are going to work our tails off to try to get that compromise. we are not going away. >> despite the shooting, the national rifle association says it plans to move ahead with its scheduled convention this weekend. the powerful gun lobby meets friday in the same state as the uvalde school shooting, texas. according to the lobbying group open secrets, they spent $29 million in the 2020 election cycle. former president donald trump is among those scheduled to speak. texas governor greg abbott will send a pre recorded video. he canceled his in-person appearance so he could attend a news conference in uvalde.
11:11 pm
not all texas officials think the timing of the event is a good idea. >> even though the city cannot cancel a contract because we don't agree with their position on guns, certainly, the nra can postpone for a week or two to allow the families on bury their children. >> at left a four musicians have indeed canceled their performances following the deadly shooting. joining me from new york is republican strategist, the former communications director for the rnc. doug, another difficult discussion here. there does seem to be an am tight among americans on both sides of the political spectrum to try to get something done. the survivors of the parkland high school shooting are saying that they feel that perhaps this time is different. they don't want to get their hopes up.
11:12 pm
i know you've been an advocate of this. show us where we are. what is in the middle here that can be done that is productive? that doesn't mean people are shouting over each other? >> i think you nailed the right word there. productive. we won't get probably grand bargain size bills. i think what we'll see is senate democrats and senate republicans. the working group that there is together so far. try to figure out a few specific things they can do where each side will be able to claim some victory and reassure their base. it is not something necessarily will make every side happy. might make some sides difficult. that's also what we are upset. that's also what we see when we negotiate legislation in the senate and in the house. that's what negotiation is suppose supposed to be. it looks like looking at red lines would be a good way to start and an area of agreement. in washington, we haven't seen a lot of bipartisan agreement for a long time.
11:13 pm
where we can get agreements is usually on specific things that members and senators and discussions together can get each other to say yes instead of reasons to say no. if they're able to do that, then if not being overly optimistic, at left a there's some home of getting something done. >> common sense means a lot to many americans. and we've heard it from unlikely people who have nothing to do with politics. i want you to listen to damion lee. >> guns shouldn't be as easily accessible. it is easier to get a gun than baby formula right now. that's unbelievable in this country that we live in. >> that's not hyperbole. he's absolutely right. a young man who is 18 was able to buy guns if he had been looking for formula for his family, he may not have been able to find it. so where are we? do we go back to background checks? are we talking about more red
11:14 pm
flags? more money for mental health? are we talking about all of it? is it likely there will be any kind of guns off the streets. that doesn't seem to be the direction. >> that's right. it is what can we agree on. there is a lot of frustration in america, in that kind of state where there were warning signs, being able to get access to guns. and every time we have something like this. whether it is how they got the gun, what happened with police officers. we always hear the line that they fell through the cracks. and obviously, there are too many cracks and that's what will be first and foremost on these senators' minds who are working on this right now together. what are the cracks that we can fill and where are those areas of agreement? if they're able to do that, we'll have something at the end of the day or the end of the week that again won't solve every problem.
11:15 pm
but one of the challenges we have in washington, we try to find the solution at the expense of a solution. the perfect being the enemy of the good. if we can get some good here, i think that's a great place for the senate to start and the house to follow. >> as they tome convention in houston on friday, what is the good do you think as far as they're concerned? they've already had people saying look, you shouldn't be holding this at all. if they're going to hold it, what do you think they will do to move it forward? or is it completely, you know, not a talking point for them? >> yeah. it typically hasn't been a talking point. we're seeing things like newtown and real mass shooting sthat jarred the whole nation and obviously, got a lot of attention and sadness internationally as well. they've retreated into a bunker. they said if anything they feel terrible about the situation.
11:16 pm
thoughts and prayers usually there follow and that's about it. it does seem and we've seen so many times. this time seems different. and it has felt different so many times bust the conversations in the senate are different. what i'm most interested to see, as we see some politicians and some musicians cancel from what is really a big event and an economic driver for houston and other cities where they've had these. what does donald trump say? my main disappointment, one of the many i had, as a republican i was never a donald trump fan. he built himself out to be the great negotiator. that he was the smartest art of the deal president that we've ever had. yet he never really tried to cut the deal with democrats and some republicans on guns or even on immigration, that others wouldn't have been allowed to. a donald trump that goes to the nra and his base and says i won't be the one that takes away your guns or immigration.
11:17 pm
i'm going to build the wall. get some political leeway from the base. he never tried to move the base anywhere. he could have had the nixon in china moment. and he never took that opportunity. so what does he say this weekend? >> to put a fine point on it. he is the guest speaker. you said he would be in the bunker. the bunker is not allowing guns because the secret service says it is too dangerous. we'll have to leave it there. the u.s. is considering supplying ukraine with one of the most formidable weapons. as russian forces slowly advance in eastern ukraine. the latest on the war, just ahead. thanks to the cartridge-free epson ecotank printer. a ridiculous amount of ink! you're mocking me. not again!n! the epson ecotank. just fill & chill. ♪ it wasn't me by shaggy ♪

here. cnn, ukraine. so a group of international legal analysts has now weighed in on whether russia's actions in ukraine constitute genocide. a new report says that russia bears state responsibility for direct and public incitement to commit genocide. the report concludes that all 151 countries that signed the genocide convention have a duty to stop what is happening in ukraine. earlier we spoke with the author of that report. he said that ukraine represents a unique situation because the atrocities are going on every day. and that signatories to the convention have a responsibility to act. >> the implications are very clear. it was set up to prevent genocide on.
11:27 pm
too many occasions, we only examine it after the fact. it becomes an academic exercise. it was genocide and the convention is to prevent genocide. so here we have a situation in which the evidence is overwhelming and it has now been presented. so the obligation is now on all 151 state parties who are signatories to the convention to intervene and to put a stop to the aggression in ukraine before it is a full scale genocide which will then be too late. >> ibrahim speaking earlier to john. now as russia faces scrutiny over its conduct in ukraine, washington is concerned china may be learning from moscow's military failures and concerns are growing that beijing may use that knowledge in a possible future invasion of taiwan.

11:29 pm
china dwarfs taiwan boasting the largest navy in the world. and the largest air force in the region. but if russia's deadly adventure in ukraine taught anything, it is that size doesn't always matter. >> a country may clearly have a conventional military advantage over an adversary. but that doesn't mean it would necessarily achieve easy military or political victory. >> reporter: the war in ukraine highlights another potential challenge for china. to attack ukraine, russian troops simply drove across the border from russia and from neighboring belarus. to reach taiwan, chinese forces would have to cross the taiwan strait. more than 100 miles, 180 kilometers of open water. >> amphibious assaults are the most difficult complex operations in warfare. if the chinese try to send an invasion force from the mainland

11:40 pm
>> reporter: four years ago, after a gunman killed 17 people at marjorie stoneman douglas high school, then president donald trump wednesday went against the nra and called for sweeping legislation. >> we want to be very powerful, very strong on background checks. especially as it pertains to the mentally ill. >> reporter: that movement lasted for about a day. the father of the texas shooting on tuesday remained pessimistic and angry. >> it is so infewer rating. all of these instances. we know the next one will happen because we haven't done anything to fix it. >> reporter: one analyst says there's plenty of blame to go around. >> the public has not demonstrated a will to put this issue above everything else. are they willing to prioritize that above voting on inflation or their pocket book is this. >> reporter: and now after this school shooting, a similar could be conundrum.
