1:00 am
viewers here in the united states, canada, and all around the world. i'm paula newton, and this is "cnn newsroom." 77 agonizing minutes. that's how long it took police to end the texas school shooter's rampage at a school that left 19 children and two teach teachers dead on tuesday. that's according to the latest timeline released by officials. for much of that time, police waited in the hallway as the
1:01 am
gunman fired more shots and children inside the classroom he was holed up in called 911. top police officials now admit it was a mistake to not engage the shooter earlier. listen. >> why was this decision made not to go in and rescue these children? >> again, you know, the on-scene commander considered a barricaded subject and there was time and no children at risk. of course it wasn't the wrright decision. it was wrong, period. >> one father telling cnn he wonders if his daughter and others might have survived if authorities had acted more quickly. i mean, how can you not think about that? we now know the names and faces of all 21 lives cut short. funerals sadly set to begin next week. the texas governor says miss have a lot to answer for. cnn's ed lavandera picks up the
1:02 am
story. >> i was misled. i am livid by what happened. >> reporter: scexplosive reacti from the texas governor. >> the information that i was given turned out in part to be inaccurate. and i'm absolutely livid about that. and it is imperative that the leaders of the investigations about exactly what happened get down to the very second of exactly what happened with 100% accuracy. >> reporter: the governor's press conference coming after the texas department of public safety said police were wrong in waiting to go in and eliminate an active shooter after he'd started killing teachers and students. >> it was the absolute wrong decision. there's no excuse for that. texas embraces active shooter train, active shooter certification. every officer lives up, starcks
1:03 am
up, goes and keeps shooting until the subject is dead, period. >> reporter: the decision to pack down was made by the school district's chief of police. >> it's believed, you know, that in fact was a barricaded subject, that we had time, that there were no kids at risk. >> reporter: the admission comes after he laid out the timeline that day. at 11:27 a.m. a teacher had propped open a door to go outside and grab her cell phone. >> there were multiple shots fired at the school at 11:32. at 11:35, three police officers entered the same door the suspect entered. >> reporter: gunfire continued as 18 were in the hallway. second grader edward silva was in his classroom.
1:04 am
>> at first it sounded like something popping. kind of like fireworks. >> reporter: just after 12:00, the 911 calls began, from a child inside the classroom. where shots were fired. >> she identified herself and whispered, she's in room 112. at 12:10 she called back and advised multiple are dead. again at 12:16 she's called back and said there were eight to nine students alive. 12:21, you could hear over the 91 911 call that three shots were fired. the caller called back. student child called back and was told to stay on the line and be very quiet. she told 911 that he shot the door. and 12:47 she asked 911 to please send the police now. >> reporter: 11-year-old mia was in the classroom.
1:05 am
>> she put some blood on her to pretend that she was dead. >> reporter: he had been in the room for more than an hour. while the texas governor says he was misled, he would not say who gave him the bad information. cnn has also made multiple attempts throughout the day to reach the uvalde isd police chief. we have not been able to find him. we did ask the superintendent of schools and the mayor if they thought the isd mpolice chief should be fired or resign, they refoo refused to answer that question. >> a witness says he called 911 after he saw the shooter crash his car in a ditch near the school and get out with a gun. the detail of what he says happened next before the shooter entered the school. >> they exchanged fires. the police shooted at the gunman, and the gunman was
1:06 am
shooting at them. so i was right there on the fence, watching everything. they were just protecting themselves. and whenever that happened, i couldn't see nothing in the back wherever the gunman was, because he was in the back part. and it was a blind spot. but he shot some fires, but i don't know where, if it was to the school or what. >> young survivors who should never have to witness such tragedy are now describes how they hid from the gunman as bullets were flying. here's just one of those heartbreaking stories. >> it was very terrifying. because i never thought that was going to happen. >> there was like one, two, three, four, five of us hiding there, and then the rest under a table, but that didn't stop one of my friends getting hurt. the shooter shot through the
1:07 am
window. and hurting my friend and my teacher, like my teacher got hurt on, i don't fknow which sie but she got hit, like hit on the side. and then my friend got like shot through the nose. >> you heard jaden there. now he of course, he's 10. he says he doesn't want to go back to school. who can blame him? because he knows another shooting might happen. and no one can tell him otherwise. and despite the mass shooting earlier in uvalde, the national rifle association forged ahead with its convention in houston, and it didn't stop protesters from develoventing their frustr. passions flared inside and outside the event. >> reporter: in the nation's bitter divide over guns, a tale of two americas on vivid display
1:08 am
in houston. outside a convention of the national rifle association, protesters of all ages, pleading to an end to the string of deadly shooting massacres. inside the hall, thousands gathering in support of the second amendment and praising the politicians who say guns are not the root cause of the evil slaughter. >> and unlike some, i didn't disappoint you by not showing up. >> reporter: as several republican leaders backed away from attending the nra meeting, former president trump came to voice his support. he read a list of victims with a tolling bell between each name. trump took the stage to lee greenwood's classic "god bless the usa", even though greenwood chose not to attend out of respect for the families. the massacre only 300 miles away from the nra convention in downtown houston. despite outcries of protest, the show went on, with trump leading the charge to change the
1:09 am
subject. >> the united states has $40 billion to send to ukraine, we should be able to do whatever it takes to keep our children safe at home. >> reporter: texas senator ted cruz rejected any new gun control measures, renewing this call to fortify schools with police officers or retired service members. >> we must not react to evil and tragedy by infringing on the rights of our law-abiding citizens. >> reporter: john cornyn declined to attend the nra meeting and has pledged to have at least an open dialog with democratic senators. former texas congressman beto o'rourke said it was time for all americans to unite behind a solution. >> are you not our enemies. we are not yours. we extend our hand open and unarmed in a gesture of peace
1:10 am
and fellowship, to welcome you to join us, to make sure that this no longer happens in this country. >> reporter: while of a majority of americans support some type of stronger gun restrictions. the sentiment was underscored throughout many conversations here. >> i know this may be somewhat controversial, but if any of those teacher also been armed, this might have earned a hlot quicker. >> reporter: there is one gun manufacturer that is not here called daniel defense. they were the manufacturers of that ar-15 used in the uvalde shooting. there simply is an empty space where their vendor was supposed to be. the company said they didn't think was an appropriate time to be selling their merchandise. instead, it's replaced by a popcorn stand. jeff zeleny, cnn, houston. >> now last hour i spoke with
1:11 am
ashton p. woods. i asked him what it would take to make meaningful gun reform happen in the united states, and what a best case scenario would look like. >> the best case scenario right now would be to have governor abbott call a special session to repeal the laws that were passed in 2019 and 2021 that made what happened in uvalde easier to happen. we can call it evil if we want to, but this is just as governor abbott reducing this down to a mental health issue, when we don't have a great mental health system, i'm sorry, non-existent mental health system. we use our jails to address mental health. but we must address gun violence in a way that doesn't scapegoat the fact that ted cruz uses rhetoric that gets children
1:12 am
killed. governor abbott passes laws that got children killed. they must do their job. >> even a survivor from parkland said if people are talking over one another a compromise is not possible. is it only on background checks? maybe moving the age? what could be possible here? >> you know, a lot of times as a black person, i'm still thinking about the 87 kw-year-old woman was murdered in buffalo in a grocery store. she was told she had to wait for incremental change. our children deserve better. these are black and brown kids, aapi kids and even our white kids, our children in general should not have to wait for change. russian troops may be gone from some villages in ukraine. they're not forgotten.

1:17 am
expected to begin supplying ukraine with one of its most fearsome weapons. the pentagon confirms it is looking at ukraine's request for multi-launch rocket systems, but no final decision apparently has been made. the weapon could potentially strike russian military targets hundreds of kilometers away. ukraine made the urgent request as the russian army encroaches on a key city in donetsk. you see it there on the map. the russians have moved into the outskirts but dee ny that the cy is now surrounded. adding to the urgency, images of russia russian crews repairing damaged rail lines. despite these problems, they are
1:18 am
willing to do whatever is necessary to protect their sovereignty. >> translator: the goal they hope to achieve in the first days after february 24th, therefore, they concentrated maximum artillery, maximum reserves in donbas. there are missile strikes and aircraft attacks. everything. we are protecting our land in the way that our current defense resources allow. we are doing everything to increase them, and weigh are increase them. >> meantime, a short time ago, it was reported that a russian-controlled city, kherson has closed its boerders for security reasons. local residents are readily identifying some of the russian troops they claim are
1:19 am
responsible. melissa bell has our report. >> reporter: russian tanks entering this village in late february. now in charge here of life and of death. six weeks later, now back in control of the village, ukrainian authorities begin counting the dead. i can't look, says one mother. it was only after the tanks had withdrawn that ukrainian prosecutors were able to start piecing together what had happened. they now suspect these men of crimes in violation of the rules and customs of war. >> translator: on this street, nine soldiers of the 64th brigade imprisoned unarmed civilians. they detained and tortured them
1:20 am
and carried out mock executions. >> reporter: we wanted to see for ourselves where some of these alleged crimes might have been committed. going door to door with pictures of the soldiers, we meet andrei who recognizes one of them. he reedsleads us to a celluar. this is the scene of just one of the alleged crimes of the men of the 64th bringing fwad brigade. we show a local resident a picture of a commander. he recognizes him immediately. and invites us into what's left
1:21 am
of his home. he and his family hid in the woods, he says, while the home was destroyed by the russian artillery that killed his neighbor. when he tried to come back, he said the commander seemed surprised. he said what are you doing here? you should have been burned alive. he still doesn't know why he decided to let him live. >> torturing people for what? because they wanted scare civilians. scare our citizens of towns, villages. >> reporter: after withdrawing from the bucha area, the brigade's men were promoted by moscow. the cremkremlin denies any involvement in the killings. the 64th was created after the georgiaen war, according to ukrainian intelligence. the soldiers of this brigade, he says were known for robberies and rapes, but instead of
1:22 am
bringing order to the brigade, the russian army armed it with modern weapons and sent it into ukraine. beyond working out exactly what the russian soldiers who occupied this area north of kyiv might have been responsible for, the big question for ukrainian prosecutors now is where they are. melissa bell, cnn, kyiv. >> now tallegations that we lai out there never reach russians. that's because the russian government has control of the media. in that version of reality, russian military operations are justified, russia is winning and any negative information is a lie. so are allegation of atrocities. many russiaancns are buying the
1:23 am
line. our next guest is a senior researcher in russian studies. are you working on a book about this set to come out next year called "russia's war." and you've been down right forensic about how propaganda has systemically supported the war. what about young people on social media. you say they are certainly trying to look at history and make it relevant to them, how and why has that been effective? >> thank you, paula. one of the things oi'v i've bee looking into for the book is analysis of where the people are getting from information. they make for quite depressing results in the sense that, you know, soldiers with children,
1:24 am
pictures of mocking ukrainians, there's a lot of humor, but it's very dark haumor, and it doesn' point to the fact that younger generations are using more healthy media or closer to what we know is really happening in ukraine. the other aspect that you spoke about there, which is the patriotic training, military history camps is another reason i think we should be concerned, maybe, about the legacy that this. >>i is going to leave. h he's been in power for 22 years. well, 23 years if you want to count 1999. and he has set up a system of patriotic education in the last
1:25 am
decade that is really, really, i think frightening in terms of the militarism and the idea that russia is surrounded by enemies that it inculcates children with. >> some of those social media posts are de-humanizing. they're not treating ukrainians as humans, as if they should be treated differently. at first russia put out the message that we were saving ukrainians from the nazis, then all ukrainians were nazis, and now they've shifted the narrative again of pitting more the east against the west. how persuasive is this for the russian public? >> that's exactly right. so, as you say, after the initial, i think shock, actually, as not being met as liberators, there was quite a drastic shift was trying to make out that almost all ukrainians were nazis, and that's when we saw this shift, really chilling
1:26 am
language, ukrainians regularly referred to as filth and scum and non-people n ain a way thats really quite chilling. to justify killing them. in the last sort of few days, perhaps week or so, as russia started to make gains in donbas, there's been a clear change this the way that russian media is depicting ukrainians, and now they're trying to exploit what they perceive as divisions between east ukraine and west ukraine. in particular a technique which they quite hilike, which is showing clips of people's social media which is impossible to verify, eastern ukrainians saying they're fed up with western ukrainians because they're not really doing the fighting, and there's pictures mocking those in the east, and that are's also use of the
1:27 am
poles, the idea that poles are going to take wheestern ukrainians. i think it's unlikely to see how popular that will be. >> you know, there has been a little bit of criticism, even on state television. we had that former russian officer say let's not drink those information tranquilizers. he insists russia will fight on. do any of these voices of dissent make any difference? we keep hoping oh, russians will come to their senses, but is that really realistic? >> i think that's an important question. there's a couple of points there. we have to ask ourselves why are we in the west so interested in this question of, you know, do all russians know what's
1:28 am
happening, because realistically, putin doesn't need a majority of russians to support the war. he can do it anyway. he isn't tethered by democratic demands, it's difficult to see an end to this war. so there's this desire for some sort of outside force, some variable in russian public opinion that will solve the situation. but i find that highly unlikely, firstly because of the level of oppression and tauthorityism. and helping to at least accept the war, especially combined with the fear we spoke about. so i think that expecting voices of dissent to in any way shift or alter the kremlin's calculations is westernful
1:29 am
thinking. >> the way russians view themselves as on the right side. jaden, really interesting stuff. thanks so much. now still ahead for us. texas governor greg abbott is dismissing calls for gun reform following the deadly shooting in yew uvalde. what he says is the real problem behind such tragedies.

1:32 am
welcome back to "cnn newsroom." i'm paula newton returning to our top story. there's outrage and confusion uvalde, texas, after officials again revise the timeline of the horrific shooting at robb
1:33 am
elementary school. 77 minutes passed. we've also learned that while officers were in the hallway, students locked in the room, if can you imagine, with the shooter called 911, calling for help, wondering where police were. officials now admit that major mistakes were made. >> for the benefit of hindsight, where i'm sitting now, of course it wasn't the right decision. it was the wrong decision, period. there's no excuse for that. but, again, i wasn't there, but i'm just telling you from what we know, we believe there should have been an entry as soon as you can. hey, when there's an active shooter, the rules change. it's no longer, okay, it's a barricaded subject. you don't have time. >> in the meantime, the two funeral homes in uvalde say they
1:34 am
had cover all funerals for the victims at no cost. now a woman was waiting outside the school desperate for answers about her child. thankfully her daughter survived, but you'll want to hear what she told cnn. >> my daughter had let me know that they heard shootings outside that were hitting the windows, that they didn't break, so the teacher, you know, quickly told them, hurry, get behind a table, shut off the lights, and that's exactly what they d aid. and apparently he did open the door and he didn't see anyone and it's amazing to know that if she thought so quick what to do, it's amazing how she thought so quick in a moment of, you know,
1:35 am
trauma, you know. it is, but yeah. she is, she saved that classroom's life. >> she says parents were begging police to take action while their kids were inside. here's how she describes the chaos. >> we were behind the cross tape, and, you know, we're asking and begging them to do something, and i mean, if you can see in one of the videos, the cop gives me a thumb's up, and that's after he's already had confrontations with me and tried to put me down. and i feel like it was totally, they were not concerned about the real trauma that was happening inside. honestly, i think they d tid. they waited too long. i'm not the only parent who witnessed it. it's sad that a holot of parent witnessed it. and for them to say that they got here quick and handled business, that's not, that is not the way it happened. >> according to police, the
1:36 am
gunman entered the building through an unlocked door. it's horrifying to know that the school was so unprepared. while many are calling for stricter gun control, texas governor abbott says the focus should be on mental health. cnn's nick watt with more on that. >> reporter: governor abbott is not talking at all about gun control, but he does talk a lot about mental health. >> anybody who shoots somebody else has a mental health challenge, period. >> reporter: this is press conference the day after those 21 murders in uvalde. >> we as a government need to find a way to target that mental health challenge and do something about it. >> reporter: merely five years ago, after 26 were slaughtered in a baptist church in southerland springs, he told cnn this. >> one of the challenges we have to deal with is not just evil but mental health challenges.
1:37 am
>> reporter: today nearly five year later, mental health, america's 2022 access to care rankings puts texas dead last. governor abbott clearly has other priorities. just a month ago he diverted nearly $500 million of mostly covid surplus funds to what he calls the disaster at the southern border while taking a political pop at president biden's open border policies. and he said this. texans' safety and security is our top priority, and we will continue fighting to keep our communities safe. but undocumented immigrants have substantially lower crime rates than native-born citizens. states a recent academic study of texas. the most aggressive immigrant removal programs have not delivered on their crime reduction promises and are unlikely to do so in the future. to be fair, operation lonestar
1:38 am
does also target illegal drugs seeping into texas. but in the meantime, 388 people have been killed in mass shootings in texas on governor abbott's watch while he has rolled back gun restrictions. so briefly, back to that nearly $500 million that was diverted down to the border in texas, it was taken from various different departments and they were reimbursed with surplus covid relief funds. the governor took more than $200 million from the department of health and human services, and that led some people to say hang on, is he taking money away from health care. his office tells me that is quote, completely inaccurate. the department itself tells me all of their health care programs are fully funded. budgets for health care, mental health care have shown a modest uptick over the past couple of years, and the governor's spokesperson also tells me that he works hard to increase funding and access to mental
1:39 am
health care in texas. but don't forget that texas ranks last in the united states for access to mental health care. nick watt, cnn, los angeles. >> now if you would like to provide financial support or blood donations. go to you'll find several ways to help and a good credible source of information. and there's more to come for you here on cnn, including criticism of the panel investigating the january 6 insurrection from a close ally of former president trump. a report from capitol hill, next. smoo you love that will never mess with youour stomach. lactctaid ice cream.

1:43 am
attack. the panel wants him to answer questions about his communications with former president trump and white house staff in the days before the attack. instead, mccarthy has issued a list of demands. cnn's brian nobles has that story. >> reporter: the january 6 select committee is not having any success with their subpoena requests of a number of republican members who they are now requiring to participate in their investigation. the latest is the house minority leader kevin mccarthy who sent a letter to the committee on friday, outlining a long list of reasons why he doesn't brelieve that he's legally required to comply with this subpoena, make being the argument that he doesn't brief tbelieve it was formed properly. jim jordan, a fellow member of
1:44 am
the house, penned an op ed saying this step is a dangerous one and could lead to pmore gridlock in the coming years, especially if republicans take control in the fall. this leads to the question of what the committee will do now that the republican members have essentially called their bluff. what do they have at their disposal to require them to participate in this investigation, and if they don't, how will they be punished? the one option they have is they could submit a criminal contempt referral to the department of justice and ask them to indict these members of congress for not complying. there's a lot of uncertainty as to whether or not that is a firm legal ground for the committee to be on, or do they send this to the route of the ethics committee and have a group of republicans and democrats determine whether or not the defiance of these republican members rises to the level of
1:45 am
requiring punishment. regardless, what it means in the short term is that the committee's not going to get the information that they're looking for from these members of congress. how valuable is that to their investigation in the long term. the committee believes that they can piece together some of the information that they have or have learned about that's members of congress from outside witnesses, depositions, phone records and other pieces of information that they have discovered. but one thing is clear, whatever information that they need specifically from these members of congress will not be at their disposal at their hearings, which is coming ump in the next couple weeks, the first one scheduled for june 9. a jury has begun tl deliberating in johnny depp's lawsuit against his ex-wife after the jury held over 100
1:46 am
hours of testimony over six weeks. >> on may 27, 2016, ms. heard walked into a courthouse in los angeles, california, to get a no-notice, ex parte restraining order against mr. depp and in doing so ruined his life by falsely telling the world that she was a survivor of domestic abuse at the hands of mr. depp. exactly six years later. we ask you to give mr. depp his life back. by telling the world that mr. depp is not the abuser ms. heard said he is and hold ms. heard accountable for her lies. >> this whole case is about blaming amber heard for things she didn't do. but that's what mr. depp does. that's what he's always done. blame other people, refuse to take accountability. but the problem here is he's running head long into the united states constitution, which says that you cannot hold amber heard liable for words she didn't write or publish.
1:47 am
but here we are. >> depp is suing heard over an opinion piece she wrote for the "washington post" in 2018. in it she presented herself as a survivor of domestic abuse. depp says she defamed him and caused him to lose acting roles. heard has counter sued for $100 million. now the entire state of new mexico, think about that, sis under a red flag warning for wildfires right now. musplus the champions leagu final. we preview the matchup after the break. ngng millions of germs in seconds. for that onene-of-a-kind whoa... ...which leaves you feeling... ahhhhhhh listerine.e. feel the whoa!
