operate in a big way and so we should be on guard for this. we should be looking out for this. it's a horrible situation all around. and i think as parents we are all paying attention want answers and want to learn from this tad. >> todd: lara trump thank you for your time this morning. we appreciate it. with that a tough week. "fox & friends" starts right now. ♪ >> pete: we begin with a fox news alert. new details on the timeline of the uvalde school massacre. >> it was reported that a school district police officer confronted the suspect that was making entry. not accurate. he walked in unobstructed approximately an hour later. u.s. border patrol, tactical teams arrived and did make entry shoot and killed the suspect. >> pete: police revealing the
gunman walked into robb elementary unobstructed and in the building for approximately an hour. >> katie: it started 11:28 a.m. when he crashed his car and shot at onlookers across the street. 11:40 he entered the campus. 40 minutes later they entered confronted backed up. an hour later border patrol entered shot dead. >> brian: wow, is that different than what we heard yesterday. one girl spread blood on herself and went to survival mode friend of hers who had been shot. one student protecting her students is dead. emma's husband suffered heart attack after placing flowers. family members say he died of a broken heart. today texas governor greg abbott
is set to hold a press conference and president biden is going to visit on sunday with the first lady. >> pete: man, you know, you always struggle with the initial reports not knowing what is. >> brian: this is oso dramatically different. pete pete so dramatically different. shootout with a school resource officers. multiple officers. still conflicting reports when a couple officers went in and whether they stayed. the fact that it was upwards of an hour before there was a concerted attempt to get into that classroom, i mean, there is no way to but the it other than unacceptable, especially when you look at those parents. when you look at those parents who were saying let us in. i can only imagine being outside that perimeter and hearing shots or knowing something is going down and knowing that police not yet are going in. >> katie: initially we were told interest was a resource officer who had engaged at the shooter at the school. we found out yesterday there was no officer that the shooter went in through an unlocked door. was able to go into the school without any kind of deterrence. no kind of barrier to slow him
down. and was able to be there outside the school for 12 minutes after shooting across the street at a funeral home, so the response time on that alone is raising lots of questions. >> brian: yeah, i mean, the one thing you hear things where there was one resource officer. maybe there was two. maybe they shot, maybe they didn't. that i expect in a loud of dust in the middle of a furious scene that no one predicted. but to know that it never happened there was no resource officer. nobody was there that was armed. and the back door was open, and that's how he walked, in and stood outside at first for 10 minutes, left so many questions. someone made that up out of thin air as if we were never going to find out. which is just mind boggling to me. lawrence jones is live on the ground in uvalde, texas where funeral services are beginning. so the anger and anguish continues to grow, lawrence.
>> lawrence: yeah, i mean, i was talking to one community member, they want the media to just leave at this point so they can have some opportunity to heal. you know, initially, i will just say this. if you are a parent in this local area. if you are a community member, i totally understand your frustration. i understand the pain. but i also think there is another side to this report, which is -- and i told tps this yesterday when i was going back with my sources. you know, they aren't great pr people when it comes to explaining from a human aspect on what's going on there is a lot of law enforcement talk but they don't know how to communicate to the average day public i in to ask multiple questions. this is what i pushed back yesterday when we were on air that what is the pressing issue.
did law enforcement want to go in? the answer is yes. as i continue to say. their observe children are in that building i think what the disconnect is and i think it's important to note this as those parents were outside there were law enforcement in that building. the two officers we are talking about were injured. they did not -- first of all, they didn't know where the gunfire was coming from. secondly, when they finally figured out where the gunman was, he was essentially on lock down and almost turned into basically a hostage situation. so you have two officers that are laying on that door trying to make sure that is secured. meanwhile, you have other officers and federal law enforcement agencies that are evacuating the other rooms. they are on lockdown on that one room. now, i understand people watch movies and all of that there is no way in any situation, and i have been through numerous active shooter situations that you just go all guns blazing
into the room when you have hostages in that room. and i think that is the disconnect about the 45 minutes did law enforcement go into a full retreat? no, they did not. you still have two injured law enforcement officers sitting on that door. they were waiting for the special operations unit to get there to be able to breach that door and even when they breached that door, they got injured as well. so, again, the community members understand their question is fair but, again, the double thinking of that moment i don't think is fair at all. >> brian: the thing is if the attack unit is in there early they do go in right away they do get the keys rather than blow up the door it is fortified as you said yesterday and harder to get through as you mentioned, pete. they didn't have the training to get through. the one thing to keep in mind although the shooting stopped and that's a fine answer, the kids were pleading. so the sooner you get in there, who knows what an e.m.t. could
have been able to do had they got in there quicker. and they are not trained, essentially, to handle this. no excuse to leave that back door open and no excuse to come out with a fable that they were engaged by a resource officer that was armed when that with a o. is flat out fiction. that's not bad communication. that is a lie. >> lawrence: again and i push back on tps immediately about that story that came out there. no one seems to understand where that story came from. but, as i said yesterday on air, the texas rangers had yet to interview those police officers on the ground. so anything that was going about those police officers were just rumor. okay? anybody put a story out i continued to say that yesterday on air. they have not interviewed those law enforcement officers on the ground part of the problem going on right now people want answers, so there is leak of what is going on the official
investigation it's not complete. the preliminary interviews were not complete when i went on air yesterday. so, again, it's just hearsay at this point. >> pete: lawrence, first of all, i want to tell you something. i fully appreciate of the extent to which you are taking in all the information and providing context. i think it's extremely important. people rush to judgment. they watch movies. they think the police should be there in one minute. everyone is trained to be a swatted officer. i get it i think two things can be true at the same time. the fog of the moment is real. >> lawrence: that's true. >> pete: you have got officers down. you have incomplete communication, incomplete information. you don't have the resources you need. you have to keep the parents out so you can control the situation. it's totally fluid and time moves faster than you think. but you can also say man, 45 minutes is a long time, brother. that's a really long time. and if you have got two officers down and you have a callout, you best have the next 3, 4, 5, 10 officers in that same door stacking on that deeper building
a plan in realtime. and that's what the parents outside are furious about. >> brian: which were tase and cuffed. >> pete: one was cuffed and one was tased i can only imagine if my kid was in that school and i'm able to carry a firearm what i would want to do. there is explaining that needs to be done by police. but i also give them a lot of deference. >> lawrence: pete, i said yesterday, if it's my child i'm trying to rush in as well no. one can blame the parents for trying to get their children out. that is -- but law enforcement also had a job to secure the perimeter. i think the one thing that continues to be this muddy situation as well. if you have the law enforcement out there securing the perimeter, what were the law enforcement inside? the law enforcement were inside evacuating the other rooms that were in the school at the time. so, i think to say that the law enforcement were in there still
working to get all the rest of the school -- i think where we are going to continue to question and i think it is fair after we get the investigation out and there is an official report that questions if that 45 minutes, is there anything that we can do differently to make sure that is a special operations unit to get in sooner? is there something we can do with the local law enforcement? do they need to have shields in the back of their trunks now? that way you don't have to waited for a special operation unit. i think all those questions are legitimate after we get an actual document that tells us everything that went on. you know, i was talking to my sources the other day that finally walked through the building. i said can you please just give me a model. i have seen models before so i can show our audience what they were up against. can you show me the version of the way that classroom was set? how you were receiving fire? why you all couldn't breach that area. i was hoping to get that before i went on air. we didn't get that they walked me through part of it.
again, that's still preliminary. that's still not the official report. so when that official report comes out, i think that's when we start asking a lot more questions. >> katie: lawrence, not just parents demanding answers also the mayor of uvalde wants to know what happened as well. take a listen. >> i can tell that you school had 620 kids at it. and what did i see what is officers shielding themselves and bringing kids out of classes if this timeline is an hour it's unacceptable. like i said it's so tragic. >> katie: lawrence, i want to detail a couple things you saying the officers were injured. because the texas tps spokesperson yesterday said they were worried about being shot inside of the school so they fell back and had called for backup and able to contain the shooter within one classroom. we didn't get any kind of clarification from the texas public safety spokesperson yesterday on whether there were
injuries. so what were the injuries? were they attended to inside of the school? and what kind of injuries did these officers suffer from? >> i know one guy hit in the ear. one got hit on the side, got gazed. actually one of the up -- to the mayor's point, those were his officers. those were local cops. those weren't federal law enforcement. that wasn't a school resource officer. that was the zavaly police officers that were there. when they got injured -- again, i'm trying to get more information on exact information. actually, let's bring the councilman in? is he wired up? because he can talk to these injuries. council men, can you describe those injuries of the local law enforcement officers of the sal. >> yes. good morning. those two officers, they are good friends of mine.
[sigh] one of them got grazed in the back of the head and in the arm. he didn't know about the arm until he got home and showered. i got blood on my arm and he looked at it and he had a big old gash in his arm. the other one i have known him since he was little. he got shrapnel in his ear what i was told they had the man pinned down that one room. those are the extent of the injuries. border patrol had injuries, too. one of their agents got injured grazed. you guys were showing the cap where he got grazed in the head and the leg. those were the extent of the injuries. it's a tragic incident. uvalde, it's heart breaking right now. everybody is hurting. the whole town. so, i mean, as far as did they do enough? we'll find out. we'll find out. let the investigation go through. let's regroup. let's take a break.
and the citizens of uvalde, they are struggling right now. nobody expects this in this beautiful town. you know, everybody knows everybody. everybody. we play football, we play baseball, we go to picnics. we go to parties. and everybody, you know, comes together. so it's just a heart breaking, you know, to have all this -- i can't. you know. all this suffering right now. >> lawrence: councilman, you got there, you heard it on your radio. you made it to the school within 15 minutes? >> roughly about 20 minutes. i'm the veterans service officer. i help all the veterans of uvalde county. i had 88-year-old veteran i was trying to get him an appointment at the v.a. you know what, sir, i think this is more important. i have got to go. i left. i'm only about five, six blocks away from the school. that's where my offers is and i got here roughly about 11:40. 11:42 somewhere in there. by the time where i parked down the street it took me a while to
walk. in and i wasn't walking fast because i didn't know what to expect. so i took my time getting to the street. and by the time i got there it was 11:45, 11:48. there was border patrol, tps. our uvalde police department. our sheriff's office. everybody was there i started seeing police officers running into the building there was police officers trying to control the crowd. the families. you know, i started helping the police officers because these are my -- these are my friends. and i started trying to calm them down, let the police do their job. let's stay out of the way. let's be patient. let's -- they are doing their job. okay. and when they started evacuating the children, and they were starting running out, and that's when they went crazy. all the family went running to pick up their children and we tried to control as much as we can it's one of the things, you know, it's hard.
it's hard. i mean, i have two nieces that go to that school. it was hard. >> lawrence: you hear the emotion, councilman, talk about the media and how the community is feeling. >> right now, i have talked to several. i mean, even my daughter-in-law, i have 8 grandsons. >> lawrence: take your time. >> i have eight grandsons they are telling me tell them to leave. they want the media out of here. i'm telling you, leave the families alone. not only the ones had people get hurt but the others are suffering, too. my grandkids are suffering. i'm telling you calm it down, media. calm it down. let the investigation come through. if something's going to happen, we're going to correct all our
mistakes. all our mistakes and hopefully some other school district will learn from what we did and it will be not as bad. i i mean hopefully it doesn't happen again but hopefully it's not that bad. >> lawrence: turn it back to new york, guys, you have some questions. >> brian: councilman, can i ask you a quick question? do you know what the policy is? was there supposed to be an armed guard in the school? is there a security procedure that's within the big and small schools? was there supposed to be someone there? >> as far as the policy, i know that the school district has its own police department. what their policy is, does every school have a resource officer? that's the school district. i don't know that. the school that's a good question for them. that's a question i'm going to bring up. >> pete: councilman, first of all i appreciate. >> the school when i go drop off
my grandkids when they tell me grandpa go take my grandson to school and there is always somebody there. it. >> pete: councilman, we fully appreciate everything you said. the personal connection to the community, the human cost, i think you really brought that to bear for us. you are right about the media and the overbearing nature of this. was there a debate? you were there on the perimeter. was there a discussion about more proactively engaging the shooter? i totally take the point they were pulling kids out of other classrooms and there is a more dynamic situation than we are describing on tv. were you prive were to the fact that they were not sure whether or not they should send more what do you know about that moment? >> no. i was across the street from the school. i could see what was going on. i could see police officers going in and out of that building.
i could see people trying to open gates, to -- i had to borrow one of my friend's that lives across the street a bolt cutter so i could cut a chain through the gate so that way they could evacuate the children from that -- from the other sector of the school and bring the buses in so we could evacuate the children from there. it was just -- it was -- i can't explain. but it was chaos. it was chaos. i mean, i'm a parent. i would have been acting the same way they were. we just try to control the situation as best as we can and, like i said, i tell everybody, wait until the final report comes out, you know, you are military, we train. guess what we do? we do an a.r., after action review. that's when we will do here sit down with the mayor the other councilman people of the school
district hopefully we can answer all those were questions why this? why that. we don't know what happened. until we know we will be more than happy, hopefully can you come back and we can go over all of that and give you guys a good report. >> lawrence: appreciate you, councilman. >> pete: immense amount of respect. councilman zamora for giving us -- and god bless the community. what a reminder how personal this wholening is. lawrence, thank you so much. >> katie: a lot more grace and understanding, obviously, in a tight-knit community of what happened, what they will do moving forward and unfortunately when you ask people to leave, things are going to get bidsier this week and more media attention. but what he said was very powerful in terms of understanding and taking a breather and getting a little more context to what happened inside that school when things were chaotic.
>> pete: when he said i knew those two officers i knew them when they were this tall. gives you aspect of human aspect. >> brian: one of the policies the administration has we are have to get rid of military equipment. cops don't need that cops couldn't need something from the military? that was a military operation. they couldn't use an extra shield or two? they couldn't use investigative equipment that helped take down doors in iraq to be able to take down school door. resources free to a community like that because we are getting rid of it anyway. indicate indicated someone who represents the community texas republican congressman tony gonzales will be with us at 7:30 this morning. so stay tuned for that. >> pete: toss it over to carley who has headlines. >> carley: a lot of snap judgments made in a 24 hours news cycle sometimes good to pump the brakes. police in donna, texas, say they foiled a school shooting plot. four suspects including two juveniles are in custody in
connection with threats made against a school. an ak-47 and a list of targeted students was reportedly found at one of the suspect's homes. the school district canceled classes until next week as this investigation continues the fda commissioner facing more bipartisan outrage over the ongoingage formula shortage. so few companies produce the critical product. fda commissioner telling senators he expects the formula crisis to be over within two months as the abbott formula plant is expected to resume production early next month. closing arguments are set to begin today in the defamation trial of johnny depp vs. amber heard. yesterday heard told the courtroom how the trial has up ended her life. watch this. >> i am harassed, humiliated,
threatened,ing every single day. it's painful. this is humiliating for any human being. to go through. >> carley: depp's team went on to question heard about all the testimony contradicting her own claims. heard fired back aappearing to admit her 2018 op-ed in the "the washington post" was in fact was about johnny depp despite always insisting otherwise. heard saying, quote, people will come out and say whatever for him. that's his power. that's why i wrote the op-ed. oh, boy. tributes are pouring in for actor raylie oat that after he died in his sleep yesterday in the dominican republic where he was shooting a new movie. >> legendary director martin
saying he absolutely amazed me and i will always be proud of the work we did together on that picture. liotta played field of dreams. kevin cosner says he leaves behind incredible legacy. ray liotta was 67 years old. those are your head libraries what an incredible life he lived. cut short. 67 is young. >> brian: we don't have any details? >> not yet. hopefully it will come out. >> pete: his role in that field field of dreams i don't know iconic. millions of americans are getting ready to hit roads and airports this memorial day weekend. >> brian: high gas prices and inflation on air fare, vehicles. hitting families hard. most traveling though. >> katie: griff joins us from washington with more. >> griff: good morning. your wallet is about to take a serious beating. there is a tiny piece of good news.
by tiny one tenth of a cent after the price of gas broke records for the past 17 consecutive days hitting the all-time high yesterday 4.60. it dropped to 4.599 this morning. despite the pain at the pump aaa says travelers are still hitting the road. >> despite these record high gasoline prices, we are expecting, based on what we are seeing for memorial day, it's going to be a very robust travel period for summer. people just want to get out and go. >> whatever the gas price unfortunately we have to pay for it. we wanted to go visit our families. >> this is the cost that's involved. gri griff go they will 49.2 million americans expected to travel by car and air up over 8% from last year with flights up almost 30% paying an average of nearly 400 bucks a flight. and the pain won't stop when you get to your destination. everything you can put on a grill is on the rise. bacon up almost 18%. chicken up 16.5%. ground beef up almost 15%.
even hot dogs are up almost 7%. the ceo of pal o a freight meat was on earlier. take a listen. >> what's killing the industry and all industries right now is fuel. many here, especially in the northeast don't see the impact that fuel has. fuel effects all of us. and especially at the grocery store. >> this comes as president biden tells americans we are just going through a quote incredible transition. you see here his poll numbers in the tank only 41% approve in the latest gallup poll with 83% of americans saying they are dissatisfied with the way things are going in this country. that's prompted a group of g.o.p. lawmakers to write a letter to energy secretary jennifer granholm demanding answers over the administration's plans, whatever they're, to bring gas prices down. katie, pete, brian? >> katie: all right, griff. >> brian: i keep thinking about the president saying through the
grace of god we will come out of this and basically all be on electric cars. on some level, they're rejoicing with this administration. because it's forcing people off this horrible thing called oil and gas which we are begging venezuela to bail us out of. >> katie: putting graphic yet saying you are saving 2 cents you are only paying a dollar more. >> pete: dips 2 cents. if you believe the climate change single biggest threat we are facing which this white house and the pentagon has said. then you would be okay with the types of numbers. here are the gas prices, griff talked about it today on average, $4.59. if you take a second to -- i mean that's a 1.50 over the course of a year. if you go back a year and a half effectively to election day, there is a whole other 80 cents, 70 cents. $2 increase over the course of a year and a half. that impacts every other single aspect of your life. >> katie: road trips take a little longer. may have to travel further.
80% of americans planning to travel this memorial day will do so by car. 51% will be car pooling to save costs on gas. so the jet fuel has also gone up as a result. >> pete: ride with your uncle. >> katie: family time. >> brian: doing it for america and to save a dollar. 11% will be traveling this weekend in electric cars. let's see where that goes. 11%. >> katie: but only for certain mileage because you have to refuel. >> brian: that f-150 goes 350 miles. only a few reservations that made them. when they finally get out 350 miles which is pretty impressive. see if we can get that aoc has a tesla, i don't know what does that get? >> katie: she is getting rid of it after her twitter spat with elon musk. >> pete: now it's got to be evil elon musk. email us at foxnews.com if you own one of those f-150s that

afternoon yesterday on the ground. >> lawrence: everyone was in a disarray. even i was. i was trying to, you know, find out more information from the department, you know, family members were still in pain. it didn't do them any favors. you know, they don't communicate for a living every single day. so i tried to get them to paint a real world picture. i think right now grief is real, guys. i was talking for an interview with the justice of the peace yesterday. by state law here in texas when there is no county coroner the justice of the peace becomes the person to pronounce people dead. and so, he was telling me how he had to make the difficult decision to call the chief medical examiner from another county to come with him to go process the scene.
and he was telling me how-with all the bodies that was there. that the first thing he wanted to do was separate them from the suspect. put the suspect in a different room. because they still are responsible for processing him as well. and now the next step is to get them to be processed in the sense of autopsy and then turned over back to the funeral home. 10 bodies still have not been returned to the families so they can start that process. so, i think there is the grieving process and trying to have a funeral for these young people as well as, you know, when i was a justice of the peace yesterday, i also learned that erma's husband died of heart break right there. so, again, they were questioning what actually happened. when you turn your kids over to the state, you want them to do
everything in their power to protect them. when they are in your custody, you are protecting your kid. with everything that you have. you will use your body as a shield. so, and teachers did that as well. but they are also questioning the system, the doors, and what happened, the response that happened, brian. >> brian: yeah. so this is a family member of a 10-year-old, xavier lopez and he is upset about what the school did and leaving that door open and other facts that we learned yesterday. >> they need to start putting a lot of security, more than what they have right now. because my grandson didn't have nothing to do with this and look what happened. we lost our angel. >> he should have never even got. >> there they didn't follow procedure. they didn't follow what the school guidelines are. what happened to the security? they are supposed to be up there with the kids.
>> i don't understand exactly what happened. but i think they should have gone ahead and secured that back door. >> he always had a big smile. smiling and all that he was always helping his dad do the yards and everything. yes, he enjoyed all that. >> katie: lawrence, we are hearing there were security protocols there were guidelines but there was no security at the school. there was no resource officer. the door was unlocked. the person was able to go into the school without having any kind of barrier or person to deter them or to slow them down. is this just a matter of the community as we are seeing as the councilman was saying being close nit and the idea this would happen here is just unthinkable. you know, or is it a matter of not following proper protocol. needing additional security measures? >> lawrence: i can say this. you know, just because i'm from texas and went to school here in
texas. and a resident of texas. as it relates to the school resource officers, when i grew up, the elementary schools shared a resource officer. i'm not sure, especially with a small town like this, i'm not sure the protocol just yet when it comes to the resource officers. the middle schools and high schools have a resource officer full time because that's where all the shootings were. i do also know that the state put in guidelines for schools when all these active shooter situations started to happen. and one was these self-locking doors. so, the fact that a door was open and did not have that ability or was disabled or something like that. i think a lot of parents are upset about that. >> brian: can i understand. lawrence, we will check back in over and over again. we will be right with you. quick thing i think everybody can agree federal funds harden all these schools big and small. automatic locking and standard for security.
uvalde, they're economically challenged, working class communities, that's where additional funding would go. there is an application process. rush there in the next 90 days. >> pete: don't want to play politics and actually address the issue, it is easy and right in front of us. >> katie: we do it for religious institutions. we do it every other ininstitution. it's like rye envincent venting the wheel. >> brian: we will get reaction from tony gonzales. he will be live with us. ergic to its ingredients or taking certain medicines, which may interact with cabenuva. serious side effects include allergic reactions,

645,000 in the human cost of freedom. you have a poppy on this wall representing every single one of them. tell us why. >> that's correct, pete. great to be with you. thanks for having us. what we are trying to do here, pete, is highlight the significance of memorial day. so we have put together this poppy wall of honor that you see behind me and as you described with 645,000 poppies, one representing every man and woman who paid the ultimate sacrifice so that we could enjoy the freedoms, we ken joy memorial day and we want the public to be educated on that. and while we want them to enenjoy the weekend we want them to remember. >> pete: absolutely, speaking of remembering. remind our audience the significance of the poppy, where it came grand why it's so tied to memorial day. >> sure, pete, it goes back to world war i when lieutenant john mccrea observing the red poppies growing among the many crosses of the dead pinned a
poem in flan ders field and michael an american professor was inspired and wrote "we shall keep the faith" she advocated and was successful in making the poppy, like the one i'm wearing on mila pell, the symbol of remembrance. today is national poppy day. poppies are warn not only in the u.s. but u.k. canada and australia is a sign of remembrance. so we have these 645,000 poppies as a sign of remembrance. >> pete: exactly right. everyone is going to get together and celebrate with family. the key to celebration on memorial day weekend is remembrance and honoring those who can't enjoy that day. and we get that day because of what they gave. i have got to believe, john, walking in front of a 133 feet of those poppies it brings to life the depth of what's required to preserve freedom we
had to take hiatus for covid. family members come and take the walk down this wall. we see all sorts of emotions as you can imagine. you know memorial day may be our most sacred holiday, a time to reflect those men and women paid the ultimate sacrifice so we can enjoy the weekend and every day we have in this great country. >> pete: about those not here giving us the opportunity to enjoy the freedoms we cherish. vice admiral john bird, thank you so much for your time. and by the way for our viewers. >> thank you, pete. >> pete: absolutely. the wall of honor is on display today through sunday. visit poppy in memory.com for more information and something that poppy in memory to pay tribute. all right, new details revealed on a timeline of the tragedy in texas. we'll break down what we know at the top of the hour. a. nucala is a once monthly add-on treatment

>> brian: wow, police revealing the gunman walked into rob elementary school unobstructed and in the building for approximately an hour. the back door was open. >> pete: started at 11:28 a.m. when police say the gunman crashed his car outside the school and shot at onlookers across the street. he entered the campus and four minutes later officers arrive on the scene. we are told they took cover waited for back up and evacuated other rooms. this is a big one. an hour later the special unit border patrol agent unit entered the classroom by force and shot the suspect dead. meanwhile, we learned one child survived the shooting by covering herself in another student's blood and playing dead. 11-year-old mya, family says she watched friend die and went into survival mode. the brave girl also called 911
from her already dead teacher's cell phone. and the husband of the teacher killed while protecting her students is dead. garcia's husband joe reportedly suffered a heart attack after placing flowers at a memorial outside rob elementary. family members on social media say he died of a broken heart. and today texas governor greg abbott is set to host a press conference and president biden is scheduled to visit uvalde on sunday. >> brian: we also know this. that the grandmother who was shot in the face whose car the killer stole is not able to speak but is able to write things down. so a big mystery into what happened to this mutant that made him do what he did. maybe she has the answer. maybe she will be able to jot that down. word is she is not going to be leaving the hospital any time soon. bring in lawrence jones on the ground in uvalde, texas. lawrence, so the investigation is evolving. they came out, they talked for
about 10 minutes, 15 minutes, took a couple of questions. and walked away. is there a chance there will be an update today that you know of? >> i think the governor during his press conference is going to be the next update that we hear. honestly, guys, i think there is an argument to be made that maybe they should not be talking. listen, if you are a parent or if you are a community member, you want answers, you understand every minute matters for your child and so that's the complicated aspect of this. if you are an investigator and i have gone back and forth with the rangers about this because as a person of the media, i want to give the audience and as well as the grieving parents answers to this they want to conduct their investigation. they say it's incomplete. they don't want to release certain things. whereas the texas department of public safety that overseas them who responds, who are, you know,
report to the governor, feel like they have an obligation to release some things. and there is a lot of misinformation. there's a lot of information that is being misconstrued. and i think as pete correctly noted, the big thing is that hour. when i was on air yesterday, the report was saying that you had agents outside that were preventing the family members from going in to rescue their loved ones and that there were agents just sitting outside waiting for the special operations unit to get there what we know to be true now is the local cops going after the shooter had already been injured and they were just standing by on that door while the other officers evacuated all the other kids out of the school. and i think that 45 minutes waiting for that special operations unit to get here and get in places and do that breach, which was now a hostage situation because there were
still kids in there that were alive. i think that is what the scrutiny is going to be about when that official report comes out. >> pete: lawrence, i appreciate you breaking that down. it's one thing to say 45 minutes the cops did nothing. but the reality is a lot transpired in that 45 minutes. and, yes, the door was open and yes 12 minutes before they went in the school. and yes shots fired and confusion. sounds like officers engaged the suspect he went into a classroom. at which point they retreated and maintained eyes on that classroom while other officers attempted to evacuate. i think the question that parents and viewers still have though is why was there not more initiative to end what was happening in that classroom find a few more guys, guys with long rifles and body armor to stack up on that door and go inside and that's a human question. and the other question is, who made that call, lawrence? and i'm not saying that from an accountability sense right now. >> brian: want answers to stop the next shooting.
>> pete: who what makes the difference that say you go, you don't go in that moment? >> lawrence: it is a fair question. it's a question that i'm trying to get answers. to say did they have the proper equipment to even go into the -- maybe all officers kneeled shields in the back of their cruisers for a situation like this? because even when the bortac unit got there, remember, they got injured as well as they were going with all of that gear. that's part of the reason why. >> pete: here's what our viewers have to understand, if you are breach ago door where there is a barricaded human being with an ar-15 behind it, you are going to get shot. there is no other alternative. and you got kids in there as well. so if you are a police officer with a handgun, in the hallway, maybe that's all they have. we don't know what they had upon initial response, you bar through that door you are going to get shot. it makes the situation worse. so if you are a commander on the ground, you better have equipment that allows you the opportunity to maintain the
offensive and maybe that's more people, maybe that's better equipment. i don't know. but we need to get that information before we stand in complete judgment of what those one or two officers did because that's almost impossible. >> brian: katie, you probably have the most firearms experience as anybody along with pete. >> katie: i have been a second amendment advocate for a long time. hundreds of thundershowers of training. i'm not a police officer. i also do some social media work for a firearms company in my personal time. i know a number of people, thousands of nra members who i have met. i'm deeply involved in the firearms community and the police and law enforcement community, and it is nuanced. and, lawrence, you talk to a council member from uvalde earlier in the show about exactly what he thinks happened. take a listen. >> by the time i got there it was 11:45, 11:48, there was border patrol, tps, our uvalde police department. our sheriff's office, everybody was there and and i started
seeing police officers running into the building. there was police officers trying to control the crowd, the families. you know, i started helping the police officers because these are my -- these are my friends. and i started trying to calm them down, hey, let the police do their jobs, let's stay out of the way. let's be patient. they are doing their job. okay? and when they started evacuating the children and they were starting running out, and that's when they went crazy. all the family went running to pick up their children and we try to control as much as we can. >> brian: right. so, lawrence, he gave an idea of the personal perspective and how is he a councilman but most of all he is a parent and grandparent. understood. let's talk about how the guy was actually taken down. they get in front of the door, reportedly, and they try to go for the key. and i asked one -- i asked someone involved with bortac why do you go for the key? and he says well, you can't use
a hulu because by the time i grab it the door there is already holes through the door is the guy is shooting through the door. barricade knock down the door very fortified. whoever is back first time gets shot. they don't have a shield. the marshal show up with the shield they give it to the bortac guy. they end up with more. they get the bore star and bortac and go in. hat the shot goes and hits him in the hat. he actually is expressing regret they are making him a hero. he doesn't feel like he should be a hero i feel differently and you probably do, too. the guy who ate the rounds in the beginning holding the shield should be the hero. he just feels there is too much attention on him which shows you the type of character he has. so they finally get from and take this guy counsel but he was shooting the whole time. >> katie: one more thing with that with the door if you can't see what's behind the door and someone there and children, you can't just shoot through a door. you can't just blow up a door
and can't just breach a door did there are kids there because law enforcement has to be cognizant who is behind the door and who their target is all these elements happening, lawrence, with -- of course while these officers are being shot at. >> lawrence: can i just say this? because i think it's important. if y'all remember yesterday, the chief of border patrol dispelled the myth that it was one guy, that it was the entire unit. when it was initially reported we all thought it was one guy. that is the essential thing that i have been able trying to get people to realize for the last few days that it's not just negative stories that are being portrayed against the media but the positive stories as well. we wanted a hero in it and he was a hero but it wasn't just one guy that breached that door. it was an entire unit that breamped that door. but all the headlines said it was just that one guy with those two officers there. that's what i'm saying. we continue to learn more
information as the investigation takes place, part of the reason why i have been trying to get the rangers they walked me through it because they have gone through the entire crime scene. i was willing to go there. obviously they have to preserve their investigation so i wasn't allowed yesterday to go to the crime scene for obvious reasons. they did paint a picture of the crime scene of how they tried to breach that door. i wanted to be on air but we couldn't do that. it was not only not being able to see what was the other end, the way that classroom was structured, i have never seen a classroom like that. it was like a sliding door that was on the other side as well. so he could have been on two parts of the classroom. either way, it was set up like a t. they didn't know -- if they went in, they look to the right or left, they didn't know where he was, which is why one of the agents got injured in the process. >> pete: lawrence, i appreciate that we had raúl ortiz of the border patrol yesterday talking about the fact there was a unit
that went and conducted this. there is a huge difference -- and i say this with all due deference and respect. there is difference between the training between a local police officer and patrolman and bortac and swat which is trained to manage something like this. so, when you talk about law enforcement, with all due respect for all of them, a local police officer is going to have a different view on whether a to --vis-a-vis a highly trained tactical unit who is prepared for this and it prepared that kind of incoming fired. start the confrontation before they were able to get in the school in the first place. they were reacting on defense. rather than anybody being able to be on offense, lawrence. >> lawrence: i would just say this. real quickly, brian. i would just say this. i think the anger and the questions can be in the same spot. but i think the motives have to
be clear here. there is a difference between the last shooting with stoneman douglas where you had an officer that just stood and camped outside of the building and didn't go in versus two officers that went in, got hit multiple times and then still stood on the door while they are injured into special operations unit got in place that the mixup in the stories. >> brian: you are breaking new ground there. that wasn't expressed at 2:00 in the afternoon eastern time yesterday that easily could have been brought up. by the way we had two people hit and stood by the door that would have been part of the sen scenario. shots. two people stood out. bortac team showed up and took it over from there other thing abun tantly clear, these guys and women train all the time. constantly train all the time. they do it in horrible conditions to be able to respond to a situation like this. and local police just aren't.
they don't have the equipment. they don't have the training and background to do that and the question is if you are trying to do something in washington besides just make yourself feel better, provide the funding and training for the smallest and biggest school to have two resource officers there at the ready for those school kids who just want to learn and be safe. and then let everybody know the worst thing can you do if you are some calculated lunatic out there is go to a school because you will not be successful. that could be a national mandate, which everyone gets behind. the other stuff we can debate. >> lawrence: brian, i think you just hit it right on the head. how do we get law enforcement officers in every single school? as i reported earlier, you know, just being born and raised in texas, the elementary schools didn't have a full time resource officer. they shared them among the surrounding schools. middle schools and high schools always had resource officers because that's where a majority of the mass shootings took place
middle schools and high schools. so, that's one aspect. also, i remember being in school and the mandate coming out of changing all the locks of the doors where they are self-locking meaning if you even leave to go to the restroom. you have to get the teacher to open that cure because they automatically lock. that means outside of the school, as well as the physical doors, as we know, one of the teachers that was crying, she said she was afraid part of the reason why the shooter couldn't get in that door because her door was locked automatically. again, that is something that we can talk about preventing in the next tragedy. >> brian: one other thing they need the master key and they had the wrong key. that's -- that is not acceptable. they evidently were told you have to have a master key at certain place. all the local law enforcement knew it and they had the wrong key there that also delayed things. thanks, guys. >> pete: we'll be back to you.
amazes. so much to digest. and so many victims, heroes, as well some maybe could have been there faster but many stepped up. >> brian: one other thing just to know how horrible the scene was it was explained to me that the guys that went in there first, even though they have experienced the worst of the worst and many seen combat they absolutely never seen anything distressful as what they saw and they are all a mess with it all inconsolable they can't unsee what they saw. >> katie: they know these kids. they know their families and parents and cousins. they grew up together. nothing prepares you for that it's the most horrible thing you can ever imagine. >> brian: kids. 16 minutes now after the hour. carley shimkus you have been working on other stories. >> carley: another crime story. police are searching for the suspect who robbed a 10-year-old boy and his father at gunpoint. amp they returned home from a yankees game. the suspect followed the pair into their apartment building
and stole about $30 from the father before running off. there are no reported injuries. this comes as mayor eric adams and the nypd are trying to recruit business leaders to help combat the crime wave in new york city through volunteering and pro-police public relations. a pregnancy center is vandalized in washington on wednesday morning with smashed windows and tagged with the slogan if abortions aren't safe, then you aren't either. the attack coming amid growing tension over whether the supreme court will overturn roe v. wade after a leaked draft decision signaled they would. a pro-abortion group called james revenge using the same slogan in an attack on a wisconsin pro-life center last month. closing arguments are set to begin this morning in the durham sussmann trial. this comes after former clinton campaign lawyer michael sussmann declined to testify on his own defense. is he facing charges for allegedly lying to the fbi as part of a bigger plot.

senior strategic analyst retired four star general jack keane. general, they're actually raising cities from afar because they don't have a weapons system to defend themselves. the ukrainians are desperate. do we have a system to give them? >> oh, yeah, we definitely do. and they have been requesting it. this is referred to as multiple rocket launchers. we developed that capability in the 1980s and go about 20 or 40 miles in an advanced weapon can go about 100 miles. today, we have got newer versions that go over 100 miles and most advanced version goes about 300 what we have come down to here and we have said it time and again, the russian forces they are maneuver forces, they are armor and infantry are weak, poorly led with low morale and improper training. and, therefore, they are not decisive. but what is decisive is their artillery. that has always been true from
world war ii to the present. russia has lots of artillery and longer range artillery than what the ukrainians did. we have given the ukrainians a lot of artillery. artillery kills artillery and so does air power and drones. the fact is that they outgun the ukrainian artillery and they want these multiple rocket systems so they can match the range that the russians have. and these rocket systems are clearly quite devastating. and when you have drones that can find the enemy's artillery even when it's not firing and then use the rocket launch systems, it will take down that artillery in a matter of seconds. and the fact that we have been dalying with this, i have been told again out of fear that we are going to provoke the russians? i mean the russians are going to go to war with nato because we're providing ukrainians with
a long range artillery system than what they have? i doubt that seriously. we have got to get on with support. it looks like the administration is now moving in that direction. but they have delayed this for weeks. and that's inappropriate. >> brian: the town i'm sure i didn't do the greatest job with that name, a town they are looking to surround now and do what they did to mariupol, the russians as we see a map and the right area is the area which russia occupies which they shouldn't. what could you tell me about that and will the ukrainians be successful in stopping that encirclement? >> yeah, well, what's taking place in the donbas region, there is the eastern portion of this. and it's on your map there it luhansk, they have stopped their offensive movement. the offensive movement is taking place near in the vicinity of luhansk which is the eastern
sector of the donbas and principal down that they are surrounding is the one you mentioned donetsk, they have been at this now for a couple of weeks trying to take control of this town it's actually a city. excuse me. the ukrainians have been very successful in defending it i think eventually the russian artillery will grind them down. but the russians, even in the donbas region, brian, they have curtailed and stepped back from their ambitious objective which is to secure the entire region. >> they will not be able to do that in our judgment. and looking at the combat forces they have and the ukrainians' ability to defeat most of it. they will likely have some continue to have some success in the eastern portion of the donbas region. >> brian: question real quick kissinger comes out and says ukrainian should give up some of their land to stop this war and
zelenskyy was emphatic in saying absolutely not. who is right? >> i know dr. sis jerry real well and served with him on the secretary of defense policy board i have great respect for him. i disagree. it's not just ukrainian territory. this is ukrainian people that live there zelenskyy doesn't want to give up his people to the russians. and is he fighting for their livelihood. that is what is at stake here. i know what is behind dr. kiss dr. kissinger's concern russia may indeed escalate. russia knows what the price is for escalation beyond conventional means which would be devastating for them as well. we have got to support zelenskyy in defeating the russian army on his territory that is the must, and we have got to continue that support. >> brian: america can't lose interest in this. this is important. they are doing the fighting. they just need our help. thanks so much general jack keane, appreciate it. >> great talking to you, brian
have. a wonderful weekend. >> brian: you do, as we salute memorial day on monday at 3:00. everyone has a moment of silence for those who served and lost their life. straight ahead to a fox news alert. we are learning more heart breaking details about the moment before the massacre elementary school in uvalde, texas it shattered this town and represented by representative tony gonzales. he joins us next.

♪ >> that a school district police officer confronted the suspect that was making entry not accurate. he walked in unobstructed. >> katie: lots of questions this morning as the latest timeline reveals the gunman entered the school through an unlocked door with zero confrontation and was inside for an hour before he was shot. >> pete: lawrence jones still live on the ground in uvalde, texas. that town is represented by congressman tony gonzales. both of us join us now. congressman, thanks for being here. i want to give you the open floor to respond to the latest information we have. of course our heart and prayers go out to the people of your descrijt. >> thank you for having me on. late last night i learned of some very troubling information that i'm happy to share here
shortly. a lot of my time has been spent, my office has essentially turned into a mini fema office. and we're responding to all these different requests. late last night i got a request for 100 cots because we have an excess amount of law enforcement and there is nowhere for them to stay. we got request for food. also yesterday i met with some of the families of the victims and they are, you know, some of them, in different stages of grief. you know, some of them are planning their funerals already. and they are needing help with their family members getting them from other parts of the state. even parts of the i-even other countries we are dealing with the mexican consulate to get visas as well. i want to share stories before going further. i also met with first responders. folks that were in that stack that went into the room. i met with many of them. because i'm very concerned with them as the shock wears off. the reality is going to set in and i don't want anything
terrible to happen to them or their families. and what amazed me is it is a mix of people from the game warden come immediately to u.s. marshals to police officers. toe border patrol. everybody came together. it doesn't normally happen that way when you have a stack of folks that breach or enter a room. it's usually one department or one organization. to have a mix of different folks, i mean, those guys are heroes every day. >> brian: no doubt. they are the ones who ultimately took down this 18-year-old. but, in the other story is, congressman, how do they get -- how do they come up with this story about being confront by an armed officer and a black bag being dropped and able to delay the gunman for so long and then we find out yesterday afternoon all that was totally not true and there was really no one on the inside until the bortac team arrived and wentn again after there was some exchange of shots? where did that first story come
from? have you been able to run that down? >> yeah, you know, i have been in contact with law enforcement. i mean, guys on the ground that actually were doing the work and at no time did they mention to me that that occurred. at no time. i'm sure one of the things, too. i called the sheriff literally minutes after this event had happened. i was in el paso at the time. and he, you know, he took the call but he couldn't respond. i spoke to him yesterday, and i go -- i was like how did it go down? and he actually he goes i was driving down the road, somebody nagged my down and said hey, there were shots fired, can you go to this house? and the sheriff actually was the first one to respond to the grandmother. to the shooter's original home. it wasn't a 911 call or anything like that. it was somebody in the community that heard gunfire flagged him down, sent him to that location. what i'm getting at there is still information going on. but at no time did any of the law enforcement that i spoke with say that.
i also want to share another thing that i got last night. >> brian: can i slow you down the grandmother first called 911 even though she got shot in her face by the grandson. that was the first alert but go ahead. >> yeah, yeah. that's right and the sheriff was already on the way. i think even before the call was even made as people were kind of trying to figure out what was going on. late last night, you know, i find this is still going to -- the investigation is still ongoing. but to your point, as far as like how did the shooter get in. what are the details? how do we prevent this from happening again, i found out late last night that, you know, the shooter was arrested four years ago for having -- for having this plan, for basically saying, for saying, you know, when i'm a senior in 2022, i am going to shoot up a school. and this was four years ago they apprehended. something fell between the cracks between then and now to allow this to happen. we need to shake out all the
facts. we need to figure out what happened. where the holes and we need to make sure it doesn't happen again. but if law enforcement, you know, identified him four years ago as a threat, we need to figure out why he wasn't -- how he got we moved from that. >> pete: congressman, i want to make sure we make this point clear. you are saying there is an arrest report, engagement with the police four years ago where they had identified he had made a prediction he was going to do something like this in this very year? >> yes. so four years ago. him and a friend and i want to look into the details hey where is that guy at? what is he doing? there is a lot of copy cats out there. i want to make sure that the threat is completely over. so four years ago he came out and said, you know, he was saying that he was going to shoot up a school in his senior year in 2022. >> brian: did he write this down? did he post it? >> i don't know the exact details but the police arrested him and they actually submitted a press release on.
that was you know, stating hey, this is what is happening. so very transparent in that manner. i don't know what happened between then and now but he is saying this four years ago. and many of these shooters come out and say it well ahead of time. it's not a surprise. and if you ask the people that he worked with or, you know, anyone that knew him in school, it was not a surprise to anyone that this young man was a danger to everyone. >> katie: congressman, to follow up on that, authorities have said he doesn't have adult criminal record but there may be a juvenile record. those are oftentimes sealed and not available for public consumption. we do know that the police were oftentimes at his home. he had a difficult relationship with his mother. his mother said that he was aggressive. there were multiple fights. he would cut his own face. he shot his grandmother before going to do this after the altercation that they had about allegedly a phone bill or canceling a cell phone plan. so how long do you think it's going to be before we get more
information about those specific details? >> yeah. no, i think the sooner the better. because we really need to, you know, law enforcement because what has happened is people have gone from shock to anger. once you are in that anger stage you are starting to blame people. and law enforcement needs to get ahead of this and really put out all the facts and details. they are heroes. i have sat with them personally. they are struggling. this wasn't a typical response, a 911 response. they were responding to their children. they were responding to their friends and family. so, i think more needs to kind of get shaken out. i got that late last night. it wasn't a hearsay. this. >> brian: lawrence you have a question, right? >> lawrence: yeah, congressman. my part of the investigation is mostly focused on what happened here at the day of but i want to go back to was this a manifesto before he was arrested at that time as a juvenile? what do we know about that?
because, the people that i'm talking with right now have not told me anything about that. and i know you just learned that late last night. how far do we know about this and was this written down on paper? >> i'm under the impression that him and another person were having a conversation and plotting things out and having a discussion. and it clearly alerted someone to go hey, we need to look into this. and enough to where the police looked into it and ultimately arrested him. and, you know, he went to juvenile -- from what i can gather, you know, he went to a correction facility. and i have always heard, you know some -- this is not official. i'm just hearing things on the ground that he was getting counseling and he was kind of seeing a psychiatrist or whatnot. i think all these things need to get shaken out. >> brian: congressman, what you are saying right now is that that 18-year-old should not have passed any effective background
check. flat out, red flag background check problem, mental problem in the background. oasis, which has got the respect of that community far and wide should not have been subjected to have an opportunity to sale guy a gun and have that on their conscience because he is should not have had a background check he is buying an arsenal of weapons and ammo. >> lawrence: unbelievable. >> there is a disconnect. he legally purchased. if you look at he legally purchased that firearm. he didn't have any background as far as being an adult. but i mean, he was adult for days. so we have got to connect the go from childhood to adult. >> brian: like the buffalo shooter. >> katie: your record doesn't go in if you are a juvenile with an offense like that. again, it gets wind away so it wouldn't even show up. >> these are some of the things i think legislatively i know our team is looking at. we are looking at other pieces of legislation that just make sense.
we want responsible gun owners to have the ability to go and purchase a weapon. but we also -- we want things to make sense. and, you know, this kid, four years ago, is saying i'm going to shoot up a school, i mean, that's a problem. right? so, we need to shake this off. this is where we are getting the meaningful legislation. >> brian: absolutely. not emotional meaningful. the buffalo shooter was 18, too. >> pete: yeah there is another reason why juvenile records don't often translate to the adult record because kids are dumb and make mistakes and you don't want it to travel with them their entire life but if you see evidence like this and then possibly another shooter, man, it makes you think we got to find a way to identify this. >> democrats are pushing hr-8. and if hr 8 were to pass in the senate and the president were to sign it because we pass it in the house, if that were to happen that would not have prevented the shooting. >> brian: that's exactly right.
forget social events and weekend getaways. if you've had chickenpox, the virus that causes shingles is already inside of you. if you're 50 years or older ask your doctor or pharmacist about shingles. >> katie: talking about the top issues this morning. >> pete: that's why rachel campos-duffy is interesting breakfast with friends at the wayside family restaurant in concord, north carolina. rachel? >> that's right. we are at the wayside family restaurant. i'm going it till you it's the best bacon i have ever had. sorry to make you jealous, pete. i'm here with jimmy. he is a very trusted mechanic in the area and he owns a motor home. so we have been talking about gas prices. tell me about it. >> yeah, my motor home it takes 50 gallons to fill it up when it's empty and the gas is so expensive because of joe biden, you know, i didn't have this problem a few years ago with
president trump. so, it's progressive to fill it up. but i'm still going places. not as many but i'm going. >> rachel: you think this is intentional? >> yes, it is intentional. he would like me to go to all battery powered electric car and so, you know, i only got a ninth grade education and that -- i can figure that out for myself. >> rachel: you got a ninth grade education and can you figure out who is trying to transition you to electric and get rid of your motor home. >> right now that's not going to happen. >> rachel: jimmy, so great talking to you. >> thank you. >> rachel: i'm going to move over here to david. so david shares a birthday with the owner of this restaurant. they also share some problems with their small businesses. so you are in the packaging industry, tell me what it is like to be in that business at this point in time in america. >> it's unchartered territory at this time, you know, we have never seen this before. and it's very hard to get not only labor but raw materials at
this point. >> rachel: what are you struggling with? >> mainly resources and paper board, inches, things like that that we use in our production. the labor has been difficult but now the raw material is making it worse. >> rachel: so you don't even have the materials to put your product together? you are having to go to different suppliers? >> correct. not only do we not have it but we can't even get delivery dates or even allowed to issue purchase orders for this raw material. >> rachel: david told me earlier he has been in the business for 40-some years this has never happened where you can't find glue or just the basics for his business. >> rachel: i'm here with tracy and kale. they are home school parents here in the area. tell me why you are homeschooling. >> we chose to homeschool a number of years ago because we wanted the ability to be able to instill our values and beliefs and morals in our children. and you just can't do that very well in the public schools anymore. >> rachel: so you have a beautiful family. kale, it's getting more expensive to have this beautiful family, isn't it?
>> absolutely. it costs a whole lot more to eat these days and of course run your errands and normal stuff that the family needs to do. it's -- it eats into the pocketbook. >> rachel: how are you changing what you are doing in order to accommodate for that? >> well, of course you try to make everything work together. double up. run your errands more efficiently. >> rachel: all right. really quick, robbie, nascar fan, who is your favorite driver? big nascar weekend this weekend? >> kyle larson. >> rachel: that's hear from the wayside restaurant and as you know this weekend we have the coca-cola. >> pete: could i larr what number -- we are going to be there. "fox & friends weekend" live from charlotte nascar race coca-cola 600. i have to say that's a bold claim the best bacon you have ever had in your life? >> brian: goes out on a limb. >> rachel: i'm not joking. by the way these southerners are lecturing me on thousand eat
grits. i like butter on my grits. >> brian: apparently she has never had sizzlean. >> pete: what's that? >> brian: knockoff bacon? >> katie: fake meat? >> brian: if you have had sizzlean nascar event this weekend. let's check in with senior meteorologist janice dean not because she is old but because she is respected. >> janice: i don't know what you are talking about. i just heard fake meat and i hope that didn't correspondent correspond toanything i do. look at the maps, storms i want to tell you about that is going to affect traveling including tornadoes. a tornado warn storm for central virginia and thunderstorm warnings that stretch down into north carolina and a flood warning. so this is going to be concerning not only now but throughout the day today where we have tornado watch until 2:00 p.m. local time and that includes the washington, d.c. area. here are the travel delays right
now courtesy of flight aware. over 400 delays. we have got over 400 cancellations. and then the worst delays are in charlotte and new york and looks like omaha where we have low visibilities. this is not going to be a great travel day unfortunately. keep that in mind if you are travel okay the roadways the severe threat will be ongoing mid-atlantic and northeast this afternoon. that's going to be a concern if you are traveling make sure you have a way to get all those watches and warnings. fox weather.com. we will keep you posted. here is your memorial day weekend outlook. we could see impactful snow as we get into june for the rockies. and then severe weather for the midwest. we do see some storms in the forecast for the northeast today and tomorrow, but things will clear up on sunday. we will keep you up to date and, of course, the concert series. the great american concert series is happening today with lee greenwood. i hope you will stay with us because we have more great music coming at you. back inside pete and katie and
brian. >> katie: all right, janice see you outside in a bit. thank you. the cost of memorial day weekend plans hitting americans hard as the price of gas, airfare and groceries for barbecues are still at a painful record high. president biden facing backlash for his handling of the inflation crisis as his approval rating sinks to just 41%. fox news contributor joey jones is here to react. so, just looking at basic gas prices, getting to work but not to mention trying to get somewhere for memorial day, if you look at the numbers here, average gas today is $4.59. last year it was $3.04. >> joey: governor kemp in georgia suspended the gas tax that's 20 to 30 cents a gallon which is a big relief. hundreds if not thousands of dollars a year if gas prices stay where they are. a lot of americans sit there and go, you know, what can i get rid of this week? do i get rid of netflix? i do get rid of, you know, one of the cell phones in the family? what do i do to cut just to save
a couple hundred dollars so we have discretionary money. so we have a little bit to go out to dinner on saturday. i know what that kneels like. if you have ever been a single marine i know what that feels like. for us it was probably cutting a few more beers out of the budget. >> katie: never cut the beers out of the budget. people cutting back and doing it by driving. they are planning to travel by car this memorial day. 82% of them. and then half of them, 51% are planning to carpool. so, more family time. good idea or bad idea? >> good time into a terrible time i guess. we're all the griswolds now. not to cast a dark shadow over this but it's not a good thing. it makes the roads more dangerous, right? it makes everything more dangerous. we are going to jump in the car and drive 500 miles instead of an airplane for an hour. makes the trip less enjoyable. what are we going to do? suck it up and make it happen. that's what americans do. and hopefully vote for different people that make a change. >> katie: people are going to be barbecuing this weekend for
memorial day. that's not the reason for the day off for americans. what are you going to be doing on memorial day? >> well, you know, i'm going to be joining pete. i pretty much made a career of filling in for pete hegseth every now and then i get to work with him. what i will do this weekend we will go down to charlotte and cover the race. what's really amazing about the nascar race in charlotte every single race car that has the driver's name on the windshield puts someone killed in action on the windshield. i have had several friends honored that way and my buddy kurt bush is going to be honoring someone. go down and talk about it. >> katie: memorial day those who made the ultimate sacrifice we will be watching you. >> that's right. >> katie: more "fox & friends" coming up. ♪

>> katie: new details about the texas elementary school's pass. congressman gonzales breaking the news here this last half hour. >> i found out late last night the shooter was arrested years ago, four years ago, for having this plan. for basically saying, for saying, you know, when i'm a senior in 2022, i'm gonna shoot up the school. >> brian: wow. he walked into robb elementary school unobstructed. he was in the building for approximately an hour. started 11:28 a.m. when police say the gun man crashed his car
outside the school and shot at on lookers at a funeral home. 11:40. four minutes later officers arrive on the scene. we're told they took cover, waited for backup and worked to evacuate rooms. an hour later that special unit border agent entered the classroom by force and a staff of at least four and shot the suspect dead. we learned one child survived by covering herself in another student's blood, one of her friend's, and played dead. her family said she watched her friend die and went into, quote, survival mode. the brave girl also called 911 from an already dead teacher's cell phone. the husband of a teacher killed while protecting her students is also dead. irma garcia's husband joe reportedly suffered a heart attack after placing flowers outside robb elementary.
family members say he died of a broken heart. texas governor abbott is set to hold a press conference and president biden is set to visit uvalde on sunday. moments ago we had texas congressman tony gonzales saying -- this wasn't hearsay. he got it from officials that the gun man had been arrested and at the very minimum investigated and interviewed four years ago for potentially collaborating with another student about a school shooting when they turned 18 in 2022. i think a lot of this conversation will now turn to who knew that, when did they know that and how much information do we have. >> when he started picking up ammo and guns -- >> where do you get money? >> he worked at wendy's part time. took it from his grandmother. found out he wasn't graduating.
that might have had something to do with why he shot his grandmother in the face. >> lawrence, let's take a listen again that congressman gonzales told us then we'll get to you. >> found out late last night that this, the shooter was arrested years ago, four years ago, for having this plan. for saying when i'm a senior in 2022, i'm going to shoot up a school. this was four years ago they apprehended him. something fell between the cracks. between then and now to allow this to happen. law enforcement identified him four years ago as a threat. we need to figure out how he got removed from that. there's a disconnect. if you look at it, he legally purchased that firearm. he didn't have any background, as far as being an adult. he was an adult for days. we got to connect the two from
childhood to adult. figure that part out. >> mitch mcconnell gave senator cordon the go ahead to start dealing with some type of meaningful gun reform. that's one area in which needs to be examined. if you're a minor, 14-18, you should not have a clean background check if you have been arrested for plans on shooting up a school. there's got to be someplace to work there. the same thing happened with the buffalo shooter couple weeks ago. >> this seems to be the pattern for all of these mass shootings, is that someone knew something. they signaled they would do this. i don't know. i had no ideas when the congressman revealed that because that was the first time i had heard anything about that. it just shows you the onion is being ripped apart and we're learning more and more and more. listen, i talked to a source
yesterday. this is why throughout the week i have been saying, every information i'm getting is preliminary, because there's interviews still being conducted. a timeline was released but it was an incomplete timeline. we have sources that are going back and forth, releasing stuff before the rangers are willing to present their complete investigation, accidents, mistakes happen. so this is what i know for a fact from my sources right now. and this is where some of the criticism is coming from. a lot of the families were outside while everything was going. lot of the criticism is they wanted to go in. they were having -- the law enforcement on the ground, to secure the area. so what was happening inside? we know right now the two law enforcement officials who were part of the local unit, uvalde police, were under fire. all right. they were going after the suspect. they could not see him. but he could see them and was
firing on them. they got injured. so from that point, they decided to take cover where they could then see where the gun fire was coming from, and stay on that door where he was. it was kind of like a t area. they could see the door, but they couldn't see exactly where it was coming from. from that moment it became from an active shooter situation to standing on that door. so he stopped firing on them. he was then staying behind that door, not doing any shots. during that period of time, they were trying to figure out how they were going to breach that door. they did not have the capability to breach that door. they didn't have the level four shield to go in there. they had one unit that heard it on the radio that was off duty. he made his way there. they used a houligan tool. the commander on the ground said, listen, i understand you don't have the complete team, but we've got to go in.
we're still talking about that 45 minutes. during that period of time, as they're trying to get that houligan tool and level 4 shield to go in there, they are still evacuating all the rest of the classrooms, right? this is no longer an active shooter situation. this is almost a hostage situation. the rules of engagement are much different when you have an active shooter situation than when someone is barricaded behind the door. right? then you have that special operations unit that comes there. they have the level four shield. they have the houligan tool because they don't have the key to break in that door to go in there. this is where the story gets a little dicey here. the main stream media, all the press outlets have been reporting that it was the officer that had the hat that was fired upon that went through the door first by himself. it wasn't him by himself. there were about three, four of the guys part of the original
unit, then regular other law enforcement from other agencies. the person that took -- they knew when they were going to go in that door. they couldn't see behind it, which is why it took them to long to breach it. it was the guy that held that shield that took most of the gun fire. the guy that got the round was men behind. that shows you how dangerous it was. then they lit the suspect up and were able to take control of the situation. those agents that were there that took that gun fire, they then started to resuscitate all those young people that were still trying to just make it, guys. we continue to get more of the evidence that led us here, guys. >> the initial two police officers, local uvalde police officers that went into that school first, we learned from you were injured. we talked to a councilman this morning earlier, you interviewed him. he described the nature of the injuries. we didn't learn that from either
texas dps yesterday or texas department of public safety. that is information that you have brought us this morning. can you explain a little more about their condition while they were in the school? >> yeah, so, katie, i think that's such an important point. i have been talking to my sources about this. they weren't the best communicators yesterday trying to let the public know exactly what happened. cops came under a lot of criticism after that one cop in spillman douglas just stood outside on the perimeter, didn't go toward the gun fire. i think from the press conference and what some people thought, those two officers that were on the scene, that they were just standing outside. they were sitting on the suspect there, right? and they were injured. one was shot in the head. one was shot in the arm. so they didn't retreat. they were shot, wounded and stood on that door until they could get more reinforcement
with more gear so there wouldn't be any more life lost. >> couple things, lawrence. one thing that's going to be questioned, scrutinized. when you're a cop and you arrive on scene, even if you don't have is a shield, you got to find a way to get through that door, whether you risk your own life, which you do when you're a police officer, on the smallest shop or biggest house fire, or number two, because there's kids in there that might be able to be saved. they've all been shot, wounded. but how many could be saved if you can get to them? >> brian, i totally understand what you're saying. there's a lot of parents out there that even though those two officers were injured at the time, that you want them to keep going through. he's taking them all out. the guy who is a level 4 shield that breaks it, he got them. the notion they could just go in
all guns blazing thinking they could take him out, not only do you risk your life, but you can risk those hostages that were able to survive because the officers breached the way they did. i understand the timeline is going to be go in, after the full investigation is complete. but the knowing these officers, especially those two, were going to keep charging toward the fire after they were injured. they would be no good to those children at that point. >> what you're providing with that timeline really important context. because we can talk about time frames and how long it takes, but then you start to break down the details of what they knew and when they knew it and how they got there and what they confronted, what they could go through. we talk about the door, blow up the door. what about the kids on the other side? you don't know what's on the other side. it's a reinforced door meant to protect the classroom from shooters. you've got local pd. we don't know what firearms they
had on them. you're precisely right. as someone who stood on a door in a stack, if you know there is someone on the other side. clearly they've shown a willingness to shoot with an ar-15. first guy take a shot. second guy probably getting shot. if you're not prepared for that, you make the situation worse. you can say all of that while also saying, 45 minutes is too long. it's too long. that's what the parents outside are saying. my kids are in there. i don't know what their status is. you feel like you can't wait 45 minutes. sounds like they put together an ad-hoc unit. you want five, six, seven, local cops with ar-15 and handguns to say, we're going through that door. brian, you pointed out, too. they didn't have a key to get in. if you don't have a shield, is it even worth attempting because of the loss of life you're going to have? lot of second guessing and questions. all i know, for every question i
have, there's a lot of heroism on that team as well. people pulling kids out of classrooms doing the best they can. >> you hit it right on the head. don't think that's not going through those officers and those border agents and marshals' heads right now. by the way, guys, just to confirm something. they still have not been interviewed. they still have not been interviewed. so we're given a timeline. i'm hearing this from sources. these guys still have not been interviewed. this is how light this investigation is in the investigation phase. number two, they had to make a decision on the ground to go in. they still weren't prepared to go. even that 45 minutes, they didn't have a complete team. the commander on the ground said, do you know what? it's too much time. i don't care if we don't have everything in place. you gotta go. >> right. >> right.
>> that's the question. everyone's gonna learn from this. every school in america is gonna learn from this, just like they should be learning. >> absolutely. >> we'll learn more from lawrence for sure. >> thank you. i know there will be new reporting that the gun man had been arrested four years ago, or a claim from representative gonzales, that he promised to shoot up a school in 2022. huge new detail starting to unfold. >> like the 17-year-old who shot up the buffalo mall. he was pulled over because he was gonna shoot up his school. 17. all right. thank you, lawrence. we'll check in with you again. >> following a situation out of pennsylvania. four people are killed and two hurt in a home explosion outside of philadelphia in pots town. the massive blast reducing the house to rubble and damaging several homes nearby. incident displacing 60 people. two others may be missing. no word on the ages or
identities of the victims and the cause of the blast is still under investigation. the fda commissioner facing more bipartisan outrage over the on going baby formula shortage. indiana senator mike braun slamming what he calls an oligathy. robert caleb telling senators he expects the formula crisis to be over within two months as the abbott formula plant is set to resume production early next month. closing arguments are set to begin today in the defamation trial of johnny depp versus amber heard. yesterday heard tearfully told a courtroom how the trial up ended her life. watch this. >> i am harassed, humiliated, threatened, every single day. this is humiliating for any human being to go through. >> depp's team went on to
question her about all the testimony contradicting her claim. heard firing back and appeared to admit her 2018 op ed in "the washington post" was, in fact, about johnny depp despite always insisting otherwise. heard saying, quote, people will come out and say whatever for him. that's his power. that's why i wrote the op ed. records from hunter biden's abandon lap top revealing the first son reportedly bought and used burner phone apps. the washington examiner reporting the app gave hunter biden the ability to generate new phone numbers to call and text from. they were reportedly used between 2014 through 2018. some of the purchases were unlimited mexico, canada and u.s. phone calls. you're sketchy if you're using burner phone apps. >> little sketch. >> i don't know why you would need to do that. >> why would you need a burner phone? remember the media went wild on
whether or not donald trump used burner phones. i wonder if they covered it for a hot second. >> my answer is no. >> two years from now the main stream media will talk. >> i didn't know there was a burner app. i knew there was a burner app. >> can you have a burner app on a regular phone? >> i don't know. maybe we should ask hunter biden. >> coming up, rachel is down in north carolina talking to locals about their top issues. don't go anywhere.

north carolina, talking to people about the issues of the day. rachel? >> reporter: that's right. we are talking to people about the issues of the day. by the way, this place is described by a lot of people as cheers. everybody kind of knows each other. barbara is one of these people. she's also county commissioner. talk to me about ways inflation is affecting how this city is run. >> we are seeing gas prices. that's a big topic. the impact to our emergency vehicles. our school buses, sheriff deputies. the increase in gas prices has increased our budget radically. we have to find ways to make sure we can get our kids back to school. make sure our ems and sheriff's department are responding appropriately and can get there. >> do you think it will end up causing you to raise prices? >> we hope not. we're going to get creative with our budget. first and foremost is the safety of our community. that's what we're striving for.
>> thank you, barbara. also, you run a clothing company. how is inflation and the state of the country affecting you? >> sure. we see prices going up when it comes to shipping and raw materials. you have to decide whether you want to raise your prices. wages aren't going up as much as inflation is. if you raise prices, sales may go down. we have a lot of decisions we have to make if we want to raise prices or we want to just absorb the cost to the company. >> we just spoke to a guy earlier who has a packaging manufacturing and says everything's going up. we're here with sara. she runs a hair salon. how is it affecting your business, inflation and the cost of living right now? >> it's very difficult. all of our products have gone up, if not double. we can't get anything in. everything is out of stock. even if you buy directly from the vendor, you can't get it in.
it's really crazy to know we're in a time where you can't get products to do your job. but we're making it through. trying to anyway. >> you look beautiful doing it. listen, it's been tough. lot of people talking ailes about how they feel this has been intention am. had one man tell me, he said, how many people do they want to impoverish in order to accomplish this new transition to electric and green energy? very interesting conversations going on here. >> a transition we are not ready for. and the pain they don't feel but everyone else does as we transition forever in their minds. rachel, thank you very much. so much from the folks there. give them our best. rachel, will and i will be live in charlotte for the coca-cola 600 all weekend live in the infield. come join us. as brian pointed out, i look
about the texas elementary school's potential past. congressman gonzales breaking the knew last hour. >> i found out last night the shooter was arrested four years ago for having this plan. for basically saying, for saying, you know, when i'm a senior in 2022, i'm gonna shoot up a school. >> wow. so we were stunned to hear that. let's check in with lawrence jones live on the ground in uvalde, texas. let's go to councilman gutierrez. we just heard that news about 45 minutes ago. i don't know if you can hear me. did you hear that sound bite? >> i did. i'm a texas state senator, not a councilman. >> okay. >> but, yes, sir, i did hear that. >> have you heard the same thing? >> i had heard some newspaper
reporters were investigating that account. as a matter of fact, i remember those arrests. i'm a senator for this area from san antonio to west texas. i remember when that occurred in 2018. they were juveniles. we keep juvenile records sealed so that information was not aired back then as to who they were. it's very disturbing. >> senator, we can't confirm this morning that those two individuals, one of them was the actual shooter. have we been able to make that connection? >> so as of yesterday i asked law enforcement to investigate this, our state troopers and texas rangers. they told me they would look into it. my efforts and focus has been on making sure my constituents have what they need taken care of and making sure they have adequate mental health care needs. >> senator, given the
information, officials talked about the threat on the high school and it happening as a juvenile, as you mentioned. does the information come out when they turn 18? is that information sealed? i mean, are people ever going to get this information? >> like most states, that information is sealed. i would imagine there would have to be a court order to unseal that information. law enforcement should be able to get access to it, make those connections. as i stated yesterday, reporter brought that to my attention midafternoon. i sought to verify it with law enforcement. they said they would look into it. that's where we're at with this piece. >> lawrence, you're on the ground there. do you have a question? yeah, senator. first of all, from what i'm hearing, reports, i just spoke to the texas rangers specifically. this is coming from the chief investigator, my source, coming directly from the person that's in charge of it.
they're telling me a 13 and 14-year-old that were arrested on conspiracy and it was not the shooter of this incident. it was not the shooter. this has not been confirmed through all the channels, but according to the chief investigator and the texas rangers, this is not the guy. what are you hearing? >> that's precisely why i asked the rangers to look into it yesterday and not make this something that it may or may not be. i wanted to ensure that it indeed was this person. so i asked them to investigate early on. because a reporter brought it to my attention. i believe we were in session when this incident occurred. i was at that time running to be the senator in the area so obviously an area of concern for me. i have been in the house of representatives for six terms and i was running for office at that time. obviously an area that i was campaigning in so i was always watching what was happening in the news at that time. >> right. senator, i know you are at the
civic center with the families over the last few days. how has that been like? how are they handling the news since we have more details since yesterday afternoon? >> it's very hard. it's hard to approach families. a lot of them don't want to be approached. just pray with them. lot of families were huddled. i guess the word i have been using is juxtaposition, to see these people so calmly following instructions of law enforcement and the people and social workers that were there, while they were waiting for a dna match and they were quietly huddled in prayer. as people got notification, someone from the state would tell them, indeed, that their child was deceased. it was just the motion amazing gutteral pain an cries that you could imagine. i know most of you are parents on the show. i'm a parent. i can't imagine sending my child off to school, as i do just about every day, and not being able to pick them up in the
afternoon. >> senator, you're right. it's unimaginable. we pray for them. we're grateful for folks like you that are there for them even if there's very little consolation to be had. we've also seen the videos of the family outside the perimeter who were urging to go inside. we try to be fair about recognizing the role law enforcement plays. they have an impossible situation. incomplete information. a shooter barricaded in a room. what's your sense being there talking to people of the response that law enforcement made? was there recognition? were they grateful for what they do on their behalf? >> this is hard playing monday morning quarterback. i feel so horrible for the parents who were out there screaming for law enforcement to go do something. at first glance it appears, like your experts have said and other experts have suggested, that there is a failure in protocol
here. active shooter situation, our governing body that teaches this kind of stuff to law enforcement officials. it doesn't matter. you don't negotiate. you just go in and stop the threat. that doesn't appear to be what happened here. i understand the fear, the trepidation. i don't know what i would do. i don't know. i wasn't inside that building. but certainly there was -- if you're looking at a book that says this is how you do things, that's not what happened here. >> senator, you represent the area. you know the area well. you've been with the families. what does your community need at this point moving forward? >> mental health resources. you know, this is rural texas. we all talk about, governor abbott always likes to talk about mental health for sick people and all that, and we're not doing enough of that. he's right. if he wants to solve a mental health problem, he needs to fund it more. right now it's mental health
resources for the people on the ground. rural texas, there's one psychiatrist in uvalde. just one, for 16,000 people. very few social workers that can help. they do a lot of tele medicine. what i'm looking forward to doing is making sure we have an appropriation to have community health. make sure they have social workers there, therapists there, psychologists and psychiatrists over the next four years. what we vow is we still have counselors out there. this is a very, very traumatic event that no community should have to deal with. unfortunately, these folks in my community are dealing with it. >> senator roland gutierrez -- do you have a question, lawrence? >> just real quickly, senator. you were talking about the active shooter situation and the governing body that actually sets up the laws and regulations for law enforcement officers. what i'm hearing from the agents on the ground is, it was an
active shooter, but the moment he barricaded himself in, it was no longer a active shooter situation, it was a barricade hostage situation. do you think the rules and regulations need to be reevaluated so there's a clear definition for the law enforcement officers on the ground? >> certainly. again, playing monday morning quarterback, maybe we should all wait and see the video. i think what's going to unfold here shortly is that we're going to be able to have access to the videos over the course of the next days and weeks, if this person continued to shoot or if there was indeed negotiations. i'm being given different reports. yeah, we were trying to talk to him but he wasn't speaking back. other people told me there was continued shooting. you hear parents on the ground, they said there was continued shooting that was heard from outside of the building. you've got continued shooting, barricaded or not, that sounds to me like an active shooter. but again, i'm not a police
officer. i didn't train to be one. my heart goes out to everybody on the ground, including the officers that were out there and had to witness this carnage. any time you need a dna match to figure out who's who, you know it's not good, not a good situation. >> amen. amen. our prayers are with you. >> thank you, senator. >> senator, thank you very much. senator roland gutierrez. >> thank you. >> we'll be back in a moment. there's a different way to treat hiv. it's every-other-month, injectable cabenuva. for adults who are undetectable, cabenuva is the only complete hiv treatment you can get every other month. cabenuva helps keep me undetectable. it's two injections, given by a healthcare provider every other month. it's one less thing to think about while traveling. hiv pills aren't on my mind. a quick change in my plans is no big deal. don't receive cabenuva if you're allergic to its ingredients or taking certain medicines,
which may interact with cabenuva. serious side effects include allergic reactions, post-injection reactions, liver problems, and depression. if you have a rash and other allergic reaction symptoms, stop cabenuva and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have liver problems or mental health concerns, and if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or considering pregnancy. some of the most common side effects include injection-site reactions, fever, and tiredness. if you switch to cabenuva, attend all treatment appointments. every other month and i'm good to go. ask your doctor about every-other-month cabenuva.

>> welcome back. american performers cancelled their scheduled appearances at the nra convention. >> country music singer lee greenwood joins us with more. so why aren't you going? >> it's pretty obvious to me that to play -- i have to say the nra cancelled its convention in 2020 and 2021 moved it to
memorial day to 2022. we're all contracted, a lot of us. the unfortunate shooting in texas took place at a very bad time. for me to go play at the nra just days after the shooting would be an endorsement, and people would then deem that as an i like this weapon. i obviously, that weapon killed kids. i couldn't go. >> but you are here. you're here to sing for us today. >> yes. >> and memorial day. no one has to tell you what memorial day means. you bleed red, white and blue. >> thank you, brian. i do. we already had some songs down. we got a crowd out there, that's kind of cool. memorial day is about remembering those who have served us in the military and first responders, as you know, in someone the attack on american, we were here three times in new york rebuilding america's confidence. it gives me great pride when i come back to the city to be able
