>> greg: you're what i see! >> stop. >> greg: all right. thank you! i love you, america! >> shannon: i'm shannon bream washington. so much breaking tonight. stay with us. breaking tonight, the community of uvalde, texas, reeling over the deaths of 19 children and two teachers at robb elementary school. >> she enjoyed being with the family.
>> she was a good girl? >> she was. >> shannon: parents and family members in shock and grieving over lives cut way too short including 8-year-old garcia who loved playing football with his grandpa and 9-year-old ellie garcia who danced along to tiktok videos. we'll tell what you we're learning about the victims who are being remembered tonight at vigils all across country. new details about the investigation into what law enforcement believes was a preplanned attack, what the shooter posted on social media beforehand with his motive still unclear. our law enforcement panel weighs? >> the american people demand we take action. my colleagues ought to be held accountable. >> the unlawful purchase of a gun -- i don't know how i -- i can't tell people i can't think of a law that would have stopped this particular shooting. >> shannon: and calls for action to reduce gun violence already ratcheting up, but are there places where members of congress can find common ground?
our panel will discuss. we'll have the latest developments from texas and other news happening across the country and around the world. fox news @ night starts right now. >> with the nation reeling in the aftermath of the texas school shooting, we're learning more tonight about exactly what happened, the timeline and how responding law enforcement officers rescued some children from the school. correspondent jeff paul has the latest tonight. he's live in uvalde, texas. hello, jeff. >> reporter: good evening, shannon. tonight, we're learning that 30 minutes prior to the shooting, authorities say the suspect sent out some messages on social media. now, who they went to and when they opened them, that part is unclear but what we do know is two of the messages, the suspect talked about shooting his grandmother. the third one then went onto say that wanted to go and shoot an elementary school. investigators say after shooting his grandmother, the shooter fled that scene
and crashed his pickup truck near robb elementary school. we're told there was an armed police officer on campus, but that didn't stop the suspect from getting inside the school. from there, officials say he barricaded inside of a fourth grade classroom. while law enforcement broke windows to help children escape the school, they also eventually managed to break through and get inside that fourth grade classroom where 19 students and two teachers were killed and then killed that suspect. the border patrol agent who shot the gunman was just discharged from the hospital. a bullet had grazed his head, and he was shot in the leg. texas governor greg abbott credited officers and law enforcement for bravely running towards the threat but says right now families are broken apart. >> hearts are forever shattered. all texans are grieving with the people of uvalde and people are rightfully angry about what has happened.
>> reporter: now n a city where the population is around 16,000 people, you would be hard-pressed to find someone who didn't have some sort of personal connection to the shooting. at a vigil tonight, that emotion from the community could be seen and it could be felt. i spoke with a teacher who was next door to the classroom with the 19 kids and two teachers where they were killed. take a moment and listen how she describes what happened when the shooting unfolded. >> he was so close to the kids! he was close to my classroom. my kids were so scared. i had to protect my children. >> reporter: the teacher emphasize these weren't her students, these were her children, children she felt very close to. so many unknowns right now.
one thing that's sticking out tonight is that the mother of the shooter says that she is surprised to hear that this all happened. in an interview, she says her son was not a violent person but he was a loner, someone who kept to himself and didn't have many friends. shannon? >> jeff paul, thank you very much. archbishop garcia of nearby san antonio conducting a massive remembrance in uvalde. to pray for the victims of the robb elementary school massacre as we're learning more about the 21 victims. chief breaking news correspondent trace gallagher has details for us tonight. good evening, trace. >> reporter: 11 hours after the shooting, kimberly wrote this on facebook about her 10-year-old daughter quoting, "my beautiful smart alexandria annia rubio was recognized today forran all-a honor roll we told her we loved her and would pick her up after school. we had no idea this was good-bye." another father wrote, "she's
been found. my little love is now flying high with the angels above. please don't take a second for granted. hug your family." ileana torrez was a softball player hoping to make the all-star team but she failed to answer her phone for hours. her family knew. the sad confirmation came soon after. 10-year-old annabelle guadalupe rodriguez was also among the victims. her sister wroting, "why, god, why? the sweet babies who didn't deserve this who were all papi for summer vacation." annabelle's 10-year-old cousin was among the victims. 9-year-old ellie garcia loved cheerleading in basketball and she dreamed of wearing a purple dress for her quincenera. jaden nicole was 10 years old and for some reason didn't want to go to school. her mom thinks she knew something would happen. her 10-year-old cousin, chase, was also killed and their uncle posted "we love you all so much. i'm just lost right now."
10-year-old jose florez loved to fish and just hours before he was killed, he proudly displayed his honor roll certificate. when the father of 10-year-old mckenna lee elrod found out his daughter had been killed, he cried and said "i don't know what this world is coming to." rodriguez worked hard, made the honor roll and had her banner year and was looking forward to summer. she never got the chance. bravo's cousin posted on social media he needed help finding her. later, he posted, "rest in peace, my sweet girl. you did not deserve this." 10-year-old rogelio torrez was called intelligent, hard working and helpful. his family wrote that he'll be missed and never forgotten. maria matta's sister wrote she was angry because a coward took you from us and ended by saying, "sissy, i miss you so much." 8-year-old azea garcia was
remembered by his grandfather as the sweetest boy i've ever known and 10-year-old xavier lopez was said to have a smile that would always cheer you up. irma garcia was one of the two teachers killed. her family says "she protected her kids, died as a hero and will be truly missed." the other teacher, 44-year-old ava moralez. she worked for the district for 17 years. her family says she lost her life protecting her students. her husband is a campus police officer and was among the many who responded to the shooting. shannon? >> shannon: trace, it's almost too much to digest. um, but we to say their names and remember their lives so thank you very much. the investigation is underway tonight. retired fbi supervisory special agent james gagliano and former homeland security chairman miller, thank you, gentlemen, for being with us tonight. >> good to be with you. >> thank you, shannon.
>> shannon: there's reporting coming in tonight that i see popping up a number of places. the associated press includes this they say onlookers urged police to charge into texas school and they give an account from people who were there on the scene and frustrated parents as well who say that there was a lengthy amount of time before that shooter got into the school, law enforcement got there and before they were actually able to get to him. um, it is tough in the moments to know exactly what protocols they had. we know they were having trouble breaching the door, but now there are these frustrated parents and folks speaking out saying we wanted them to get in there more quickly. james, what do we do? what do we learn from this? >> i spent 25 years in the fbi as a s.w.a.t. team leader, and now the last five or six years doing television law enforcement analysis, i'm reticent to criticize before i get all the facts in. i will say this about critiquing this.
after columbine, law enforcement learned a painful lesson there and that lesson was you can't wait on a homogenous team, fully formed and equipped team to come and make entry. law enforcement has to enter, they have to go to the sound of the guns and they have to intradick the shooter, because in most of -- is interdict the shooter because in most of the instances, no one is looking to take hostages. these are instances where people are looking to ratchet up the body count. most of the carnage, if you go back to virginia tech in 2007 or the horrific shooting in las vegas in 2017, 33 and 50 people killed respectively, most of the damage, shannon, the casualty counts were done in the first 10 minutes. >> shannon: commissioner, i know for you, um, you have a deep special connection to the families to the kids. tell us about the work that you do making sure that they're taken care of and how that will play out in the coming weeks? >> well, i'm the texas commissioner.
uvalde is an ag culture town. we're in the winter garden area of the state. we treat broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and lettuce. good chance it came from this part of the state and was grown by the fine folks in uvalde. i run the nutrition program for the state and for the federal government, so actually, every day i'm responsible for five million school meals to these kids. here in uvalde, they have turned out school for the summer. school is shut down. now, most of these kids, their families are from modest means, so that means they qualify for summer feeding program. so i still have to make sure 4,000 kids here in uvalde could get fed. i reached out to the san antonio isd. they've agreed to help us out. they're going to provide those meals. they're going to come here next week with 20,000 meals. i'll make sure those get distributed. we'll give the staff here at the school, the parents, the administration, the cafeteria workers some time
off to get over this. once they heal and they want the program back, it's theirs, so we're going to make sure this community is taken care of. we're going to make sure those kids are fed on a timely basis and they don't miss any meals. shannon, i'm tired of all the politicization of this event. people just need to stop. this community is hurting. we can talk about all of that later, but right now, the folks need help in this community. they need healing and loving. >> shannon: i love what you're doing. it's something very practical and an action you can do and show up and pour into that community by helping out there. commissioner, a wonderful idea! want to read something from dr. charles crawhammer who we missed every day but especially in just her broken times like this -- just in hurt, broken times like this he wrote in the "washington post," an opinion piece after the sandy hook shooting. we live in an entertainment culture with graphic and often sadistic violence. not just movies. men pull video game
triggers, mowing down human beings without consequences. we profess shock when deeply deranged, dangerously isolated young men go out and enact the overlearned narrative. james, a quick comment from you on that. he says it's a problem of culture as much as it is weapons and everything else. >> certainly, shannon. and generally speaking, these people, they're young men. they're disenfranchised. they're grievingance collectors between the ages of -- grievance collectors between the ages of 18-25. they come from all ends of the political and ideological spectrum. they're from the far left and from the far right. sometimes, as in in this case t might be someone who was just angry, that was alone. it could have been a factor from being locked down for a year or two. it could have beening in. these are the -- it could have been anything. these are the types of things where we're looking at the red flag laws going forward, the extreme risk, protection orders as possible means to identify these folks, but, again, we run up against hipaa and
some of the privacy protections that make it hard to connect the dots. >> the doctor talks about the niece trying to balance the rights and civil liberties against making sure we can try to prevent every single action we can of this disgusting nature. james, commissioner, thank you, both, for being with us. >> thank you, god bless you, shannon. >> shannon: back in washington, president biden calling for action on gun reform. some u.s. senators, including some republicans, who say they could be receptive tonight to certain things, to passing new legislation in response to this tragedy. white house correspondent kevin corke tracking that part of the story for us tonight, good evening, kevin. >> reporter: evening, shannon. while the president is urging lawmakers to stand up to what he calls the gun lobby, senate majority leader chuck schumer is actually signaling how fast bills, expanding background requirements for firearm purchases won't likely be voted on anytime soon in the
sympathetic senate. >> i believe accountability votes are important, but sadly, this isn't the case of the american people not knowing where their senators stand. >> reporter: previous efforts as you probably know on gun control have failed in the senate unable to overcome the 60-vote filibuster threshold. while there are new calls tonight to abolish the filibuster, democrats like joe manchin of west virginia are pushing back calling on both sides to find some common ground. >> if we can't get 70 or 75 senators that won't vote to have a commonsense protection of your children and grandchildren, what in the world are we here for? what's your purpose for being in the united states senate if it's not to at least protect the children? >> reporter: indeed! and the tragedy in texas is also been a crusher on the senate to -- putting pressure on the senate to confirm the first permanent director of the alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives in nearly seven years. however, after the president's first bid to lead the field failed,
president biden's first nominee came under fire once again today this time for not having a definition for the term "assault weapon." even though you may recall he called for banning them when he ran for ohio attorney general back in 2018. >> i think it's very telling that you're nominated to lead the atf and you don't have a definition of assault weapon. point is there is really no such thing that category weapons known as assault weapons. >> reporter: meanwhile, over at the white house, the president used the anniversary of the death of george floyd to blast republicans over what he called inaction on police reform introducing an executive order that would create a national database of police misconduct, mandates the use of body cameras and bans the use of chokeholds. this would only apply to federal officers and not state and local departments. obviously, that'll be hotly debated in the days and weeks ahead, all in the backdrop of the tragedy over in texas.
shannon? >> shannon: kevin, thank you very much. i hope you'll join me later on in the show with good news because i think folks could use it tonight. >> reporter: yes, indeed. see you later. >> shannon: thank you. kevin. what might compromised gun legislation look like? what are the chances the measures could make it through provided congress as pointed out for us -- we brought in legal experts to discuss the possibilities tonight. brian clay phil who survived the mass shooting in los angeles and nothing but the truth podcast host, criminal defense attorney david bruno. gentlemen, always good to see you. thank you for being on tonight. >> shannon: brian, let me start, i imagine something like this, when it happens, it's just crushing after what you've been through. >> shannon, i have to tell you, seeing pictures of those kids, it's just devastating! it's heartbreaking! i know what they were feeling. i know what that teacher was feeling. when i was in vegas and
dodging those bullets, i know what they're feeling. and i will tell you in the middle of my shooting, i said to myself f i get out of here a-- if i get out of here alive, i'm going to help get an assault weapon ban, right? then i met with dianne feinstein when i got back. i read her a letter, shannon, from my daughter. my birthday was a day after the shooting. i read her a letter that i said i might never have read if had i died. can you do something? nothing happened. what i want to tell your viewers is we have to work from the inside out. we're never going to get an assault weapon back. we know that. that's -- weapon ban. we know that. that's not reasonable. what we can do is bond together. we all have to give up a little piece of our civil liberties, i think, to safeguard kids in our country, the red flag laws. forget about hipaa. the background check law. why isn't that passed, shannon? 84% of people believe in that. so those are two starting points and then mental health. we have to talk about mental
health. >> shannon: the doctor in that piece back in 2012 talks about those things. he said when he was working in psychiatry, it was much easier, there wasn't as much red tape and as much pushback and, you know, administrative trouble if you tried to commit somebody because you knew they were a danger to themselves or someone else. he said in the article it got so much more difficult to try to get help for someone that does flag you're very aware there's a mental health issue but let's talk about the red flag laws. several states passed them in recent years. um, but there's a piece in pew trust dot-org i was reading about talking about this issue over due process, the debate over that, because the note there is that many states take the gun and then have the hearing. the aclu rhode island director said this we believe it's very important that basic due process standards are considered when drafting measures like this. it could have serious impacts on innocent individuals. so, david, how do we find that solution? >> well, i'll tell you, i
mean, first off, this is the 27th school shooting of this year, believe it or not. there was 34 last year in 2021. and since newtown, connecticut, in 2012, there's been 270 people killed in k-12. and those statistics are staggering! i mean, something has to be done. brian, it's great to see you, my friend, and i knew your story. and i knew i was coming on with you and i knew it'd be an emotional one. we just have to learn from these things. but on this case, shannon, no red flag law would have protected this situation. this guy had no criminal history. this guy had no mental health history whatsoever. he was 18 years old. >> david, david, why are someone with an ar-15 shooting at a 7-year-old! you can't even drink at 18! i'm sorry!
ridiculous! >> he gets the ak at 18 years old. two of them. right at his 18th birthday to brian's point, he couldn't go into a liquor store and liliquor. jeers -- store and buy liquor. in jersey, they take the gun immediately if there's a showing of a danger. i don't see a reason of a red flag law if you can't take the guns. >> shannon: in new jersey, who determines the showing of need? that's a real concern. this is a constitutional right. people are worried about potential abuse by a spurned ex-lover or someone who wants to get you in trouble and take your weapons away when you may not, in fact, show, if there's an investigation, be what they're claiming you are. >> sure, the complaint filed by either a family member or a police officer, and it goes to a superior court judge that makes the determination based on an enumerated set of factors that they have to consider
to determine if there's a need to take the gun. unfortunately, there is no hearing there. it's ex parte. the judge makes the decision. if the order is signed, then they go in, the police go in and get the guns and then statutorily, the hearing is supposed to take place within 10 days and it's a short period of time. it's a reaction. but there has to be some give and take right there and that is what some of the legislators some of the states have allowed in the red flag law. >> shannon: a difficult one. brian, we have 15 seconds, so final word from you. >> yes, yes. social media, they need to have a sense of responsibility. we need mandated reporter laws. social media needs to report to law enforcement when they see posted on facebook or instagram two ar-15's from an 18-year-old and a picture of ammunition! they need to have a stake in this. every -- shannon, one last point, every mass shooting has red flags.
and we need to create laws that force us to pay attention to those red flags and report them. >> shannon: i don't want to get cut off but we all need to take more responsibility. that is for sure. brian and david, thank you, both. >> thank you. >> yep, thank you, shannon. >> shannon: our coverage continues as well as the stunt beto o'rourke pulled today. talk about that next.
up to 8 weeks of relief with cytopoint. that's a lot more fun time, right max? yup. it's life-changing time. ♪ ♪ cytopoint is a long-lasting treatment for allergic dermatitis. just one injection given by your veterinarian can control allergic itch for 4-8 weeks. it's life-changing itch relief that brings back the fun in life, day after day. now's the time to ask your veterinarian for cytopoint.
i can't believe you're a sick son of a [bleep] that could come here to bring up this issue. >> shannon: that was bet toe o'rourke -- beto o'rourke. talk about the rapid politicization of tuesday's strategy is t.w. shannon. >> good to see you. >> hi, shannon, thank you for having me. >> shannon: i want to start with the "wall street journal" tonight. they say trailing in the polls, mr. o'rourke must figure he had to take a risk on politicizing the murders even as emotions are raw and they're trying to figure out ramos' motivation. on wednesday, he got his soundbite. we'll see if this was all about gun control. t.w., let's start with you on comment. >> when i first started this, it reminded me of
something my grandmother used to say, a lot of class but really low. this is a defining action for our country as we come together. instead of thinking about the children and the families that suffered in such a grievous way, beto was doing what he does best, thinking about beto. the reason he does that is because his policies are out of step and out of touch with certainly texans but all of america really because he's part of the marxist agenda that wants to transfer america on what it is. he needed this stunt to jump start his campaign. it's embarrassing. he should be ashamed. frankly, he should resign from participating in the election he should withdraw his candidacy after tonight. >> shannon: we all know he will not. we'll see what texans think about this. for many people in washington, they feel there's been a diplomatic conversation going on senator chris murphy who's understandably been furious and heartbroken, as we all are, npr reports this, that he told npr all things
considered, he's working with both parties to try to find common ground. maybe i'm a fool of being the eternal optimist but he says he's far from confident he can find enough republicans to join the democrats to get the 60 votes necessary to overcome a filibuster. kevin, sounds like he's having conversations with republicans about anything they might be able to agree on. >> he is, shannon. this has been the main focus of his senate career since the horrible tragedy in newtown, connecticut. listen, he's having conversations with susan collins about red flag laws, national red flag program, potentially expanding background checks we saw was a part of manchin and toomey that got 54 votes, including republicans and democrats back in 2013. so we can honor the legacy, the tragic nature of this violence visited upon us by action. i think that's what you saw with bet toe -- beto o'rourke and you just saw on the panel you just hosted
before us, shannon s texans and -- shannon, is texans and the american people are looking for action. they're prayerful and horrified but they're look for government to do something about what we're seeing play out every week in this country. beto o'rourke talked about the five of the largest mass shootings in the last five years were in texas including in his hometown of el paso. so i think you saw that confrontation play out today because of the frustration felt on the ground because of another tragedy like we saw play out just yesterday. >> yeah and i think people want to have a conversation about what would actually make a difference and noting the fact as we have that this shooter was breaking multiple state and federal laws and carrying out this heinous, you know, murderous rampage yesterday from the shooting at grandmother to taking all of those precious lives. i think people are convinced there's something that could be done that will actually make a difference will rally behind that. we'll see what washington comes up with. in the meantime, the white house has a lot of headaches to deal with on foreign
policy and here domestically at home. biden's public approval falls to 36%, lowest of his presidency. t.w., i know republicans are predicting a mass red wave this fall but i'm hearing from some of the top leadership, too, they're worried these numbers like this poll and other things that seem to be trending against the president may make republicans a little too comfortable. >> well, republicans should have a lot to celebrate, not because of things going so well in the country but because donald trump was proven right on the america first policy agenda, and joe biden and kamala harris have does everything they can in their power to undo the america first policy, whether we're talking about the border, we're talking about the crime crisis sweeping across america or we're talking about record inflation which joe biden promised would just be temporary inflation. the truth is americans are less free and less prosperous because of the policies of joe biden. he's incapable of leveling with the american people on
how we're going to turn things around the real issue facing the world right now in the country is the next century going to be led by americans or the chinese? every time biden makes a statement about international law, its handlers have to walk it back. it really makes americans less safe because of joe biden. the truth is we need republicans and we need leadership right away. >> shannon: let me make sure we get kevin in here for a final word. >> t.w. is running for senate. he's got to get that in. completely. i'm all about that for him. joe biden is a fundamentally decent man that's working as hard as he can tackling these different crises. he's rebuilding the western world and the democracy of the world against russia. you've seen finland, sweden interested in joining nato. that's a good thing and has rallied the world on the international stage. a successful visit to asia this past week. obviously there's domestic problems at home. he's focusing on that as well. >> shannon: we have to leave it there.
you two won't agree. we won't leave in agreement tonight but we agree we love you both. we'll have you both back on soon. >> thank you, shannon. >> shannon: as a new shipment of baby formula arrives on u.s. soil to help alleviate the shortage, what could have been done to prevent the crisis from happening in the first place? we're digging in for answers next.
i'm steve. i lost 138 pounds in 9 months on golo and taking release. golo saved my life. i was way overweight, and that's what sent me down the path, was i--i wanted to make sure and live for my kid. plain and simple. ["only wanna be with you" by hootie & the blowfish] discover is accepted at 99% of places in the u.s. ["only wanna be with you" by hootie & the blowfish]
hi. we're zerowater. and we believe everyone deserves discover is accepted at 99% of places in the u.s. the purest tasting water. that's why we strive for zero. you see, to some it means nothing. but to us, it means everything. here, take a look. this meter showing triple zeros means our five-stage filter did its job, and that virtually all dissolved solids or tds have been removed. and all that's left is the purest tasting water. let's compare. a two-stage brita filter stops here. but our five-stage filter doesn't quit. zerowater. we strive for zero.

correspondent ashley strohmeyer shows us tonight. good evening, ashley. >> reporter: hey there, shannon. first lady jill biden and murphy welcomed the much-needed delivery of the baby formula on wednesday. america's doctors speaking in front of the 1 20 pounds or -- 120,000 lbs or 60 tons being shipped in from europe. >> beginning with the first operation flight formula, the flight that landed in indiana over the weekend, we've now brought the equivalent of 1.5 million 8 oz bottles of infant formula to the united states. even more is on schedule to arrive in the coming days. >> reporter: the first lady speaking directly in parents effected by the lack of formula saying they understand the shipment of the product is just one piece of the solution but will work until it is solved. meanwhile on capitol hill, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle grilled the fda commissioner demanding answers on how we got to this point. commissioner robert answered the questions but somewhat
dodged them when it came to if he thought the fda should have intervened sooner. listen to this. >> we had systems that were failing and decisions that could have been better and those findings will be made public. no question about it. >> reporter: lawmakers also criticizing the fda on a whistle-blower complaint sent in october and the timing in which it was investigated but callus blamed old technology for the delay. >> the fda's testimony notes hard copies of the whistle-blower complaint which were sent to three fda officials including dr. main and dr. woodcock were not forwarded with the fda mailroom. literally blaming the mailroom, which could be the case, but we're in 2022 here. >> it's a technical issue and we're fixing the mailroom. >> reporter: regardless of all of this, it's still going to be weeks before parents can get their hands on the much-needed formula according to the commissioner. many are blaming the fact that the abbott plant in michigan was shut down
temporarily earlier this year due to a chrissis. he says the inspection results of the plant were "shocking" even compared the plant tie muddy kitchen, shannon? >> shannon: yikes! ashley, thank you very much. former clinton campaign attorney michael sussman might testify as soon as tomorrow at's trial where he's accused of lying to the fbi for saying he was taking information to the agency about unproven trump/russia ties on his own and not at the behest of any client. but special council john durham says sussman charged the clinton campaign for that fbi meeting. durham's team broad e-mails, bills and the receipts for the jury to review today. it says that it shows that sussman lied. the defense says the evidence could stem from other right-lead bill functions that sussman performed on behalf of the clinton campaign. prosecution rested today. we could get a verdict before the weekend unless sussman does take the stand in the next day or two. director of the fbi answered questions from lawmakers wednesday about a plot to
assassinate former president george w. bush. the suspect is a man affiliated with the isis terror group. national security correspondent jennifer griffin has more tonight from the pentagon. >> we've got continue to stay laser focused on our efforts to counter violence motivated by hate and extremism. >> reporter: fbi director chris ray faced questions from frustrated lawmakers a day after the texas school shooting and a day after an iraqi man appeared in an ohio court charged with a plot to kill a former u.s. president. >> this was confirmed just yesterday when an fbi search warrant unsealed an ohio revealed an assassination plot against former president george w. bush included plans to smuggle assassins into the united states from mexico. >> i'm very proud of the work that our folks did on the ohio case and certainly any porous point of entry is a potential vulnerable that bad actors of all sorts
