7:03 am
the fight against the coronavirus. the cdc is now backing booster shots for millions of americans after the director stepped in early this morning to overrule the advisory board and make high risk frontline workers eligible for the third shot of the pfizer vaccine. dr. jha will join us live but first whit johnson with all the latest. good morning, whit. >> reporter: george, good morning. it's been a month of booster battle whiplash. public divisions between the biden administration and fda panel, a cdc panel, but this morning, the director of the cdc making the final call on this next wave of pfizer booster shots and millions of eligible americans can go out and get them starting today. after weeks of head-spinning debate, overnight the cdc director giving the green light for booster shots, but going against her own panel of advisers on a key element of who qualifies. >> this motion passed, 15-0. >> reporter: dr. walensky now endorsing the panel's recommendation for a third pfizer shot six months after a second dose. for those 65 and older.
7:04 am
residents of long-term care facilities and people 18 and older at high risk with underlying medical conditions. but here's the disagreement. the panel initially voted against authorizing boosters for frontline workers like teachers, day care staff, grocery and healthcare workers. >> this isn't about who deserves a booster, but it's about who needs a booster. >> reporter: that decision angering many nurses exposed to covid patients for hours a day. >> nurses across the country are fuming. science has already shown that some of the vaccine effects and protections are wearing off. >> reporter: but dr. walensky overruling the advisers saying in a statement they will allow the booster for adults at high risk of disease from occupational and institutional exposures to covid-19. more than 13 million americans over 65 are already at least six months past their second pfizer dose. the boosters will be available
7:05 am
as soon as today at over 30,000 locations across the country including urgent care clinic, some federally qualified health centers and pharmacies. health officials not ruling out expanding eligibility to more people for pfizer boosters in the future as more data becomes available. >> we will continue this dialogue. you will have more data to review and more recommendations to make. >> reporter: now, again, this only applies to the pfizer booster shot. for those who got the moderna or johnson & johnson vaccines, you will have to wait a little bit longer as the process plays out, but the director of the cdc is promising as soon as more information becomes available, they will address those boosters with the same sense of urgency. cecilia. >> okay, whit, understandably so many questions about all of this. thank you. joining us right now is, of course, dr. ashish jha, our friend, dean of the brown university school of public health. dr. jha, whit just used that
7:06 am
word whiplash, and i think it could not be more accurate. folks might be confused. let's break it down. that panel initially recommended boosters for older folks and people with compromised immune systems, not frontline workers. overnight the head of the cdc says no, it can be frontline workers. was this the right decision? >> yeah, good morning, cecilia. thanks for having me here. absolutely. dr. walensky made absolutely the right call yesterday when the advisory committee said no to frontline health workers and other people at high risk. i and i thin most of us in public health thought that was the wrong decision, and it's ultimately, this is an advisory committee and dr. walensky gets to make the call. she made the right call. >> give us the time line. when can folks start to get the booster shots and go also back to what whit was talking about, this being for pfizer folks, folks who have pfizer. can you mix and match if you had moderna? >> that's a great question. people who have gotten pfizer can start getting their boosters probably today, over the weekend, certainly early next week. i think today officially people can do this. in terms of those of us who have
7:07 am
gotten -- i got moderna. what can i do? what can people who got moderna and j&j do? basically what we're asking, and what the federal officials are asking, is for people to wait a few weeks. we can mix and match but don't have great data on it yet. so it is, i think, better for people to wait a few weeks and we'll have more guidance on moderna and j&j and we'll be able to make more data-driven decisions. >> we're hearing more and more stories about folks who want this booster shot and going into pharmacies or going to their doctors and not telling the full truth they are vaccinated and pretending to not be vaccinated in order to get the booster. what do you say about that? >> yeah, i'm hearing that, too. i think it's unfortunate. i understand this is why fda and cdc have to act faster. the more slowly they go, the more people will be tempted to do that. the problem with that is it really makes it hard for us to know who has gotten the booster, who got vaccinated. so i wish people would hold a little longer.
7:08 am
>> dr. jha, thank you so much. michael. we turn to the latest on the rampage at a kroger supermarket in tennessee leaving at least one person dead, 14 wounded and five critically injured. the gunman opening fire sending people running to hide wherever they could. some in freezers. alex perez is there in collierville this morning for us. good morning, alex. >> reporter: hey. good morning, michael. still so many unanswered questions here. you can see behind me me authorities are still here collecting evidence. it was a regular old day at this grocery store when suddenly bullets were flying and people were running for their lives. this morning, a community in shock and searching for answers after an armed man walked into this kroger grocery store and unleashed a hail of bullets on unsuspecting customers and employees. authorities calling it a possible incident of workplace violence. >> it is a shooting with injuries, no further information at this time. on the scene now. >> as bad as this scene is and it's horrific, i've been involved in 34 years and never seen anything like it. we just trained on this back two
7:09 am
months ago and it's with a broken heart i have to stand here before you today. >> reporter: complete chaos s those shoppers and workers ran for their lives seeking shelter wherever they could. some hiding inside freezers. one employee saying she ran with several others to the store's back area hoping to be out of sight, but no such luck. >> here he comes right behind us starts shooting. and he kept on shooting and shooting and shooting. he shot one of my co-workers in the head and then shot one of the customers in the stomach. >> reporter: jean prost was working in the produce section when the shots and panic began. >> they kept on shooting and, oh, my gosh, this is -- this is horrifying. this is horrifying. i'm going to die. i was saying nobody's going to know what happened to me. this is it. this is the end of my life. >> reporter: fbi and police racing to the scene rescuing
7:10 am
this terrified kroger employee who had escaped to the roof. the gunman police say shot and killed himself. 13 people shot in his rage of bullets, five in critical condition and one shopper killed. overnight, abc news learning olivia king was that fatal victim. her son writing, our family is devastated by this senseless act of violence. she was shopping. my mother was 70. we believe that she had gone to daily mass this morning and then simply went to the store at some point. in a statement, the grocery store saying the entire kroger family offer thoughts, prayers and support for individuals and families of victims at this time. we have initiated counseling services for our associates. so many people who were inside that store grateful to be alive this morning. the exact motive remains
7:11 am
unclear. the investigation here far from over. michael. >> alex, thank you so much. joining us now is sara wiles, the icu nurse who was there in the store when the gunman entered, and then sara rushed to help some of the victims. sara, thank you so much for joining us. first of all, i just want to say we're so glad that you are safe and let me say our hearts are with everyone in your community and you must be in a state of shock. >> it's surreal for me, for the victims it's -- i can only imagine it's devastating. fortunately we're a very tight-knit community, so we'll be blessed in this fact that we're all going to rally around these victims and especially the king family. we will all be here for them. >> absolutely, and you were in the produce department when the tell us what happened and how you managed to keep yourself safe? >> just walked in on a thursday to buy a potato and an onion to
7:12 am
make soup for dinner and was in the back and i heard the initial pop of the gun, but at that time i thought it was one of the mylar balloons that they had in the floral department, and seconds later i had heard another one and people started looking towards the front of the store, a couple of seconds later i assume there were three rapid-fire shots and at that point i knew it wasn't a balloon and just started running, ran to the meat department. one of the kroger employees was directing us to the back hallway where they have the stockrooms and ran into two other women and we just, the three of us ran together and we made ourselves a hiding space and we hid in that area until we could hear things start to settle down. we did hear the shooter in the ba walking up and down the hall shooting. when i got to a point where i felt we were at least tucked
7:13 am
away enough i did call my husband and he could hear the gunshots, as well, so we just hid there until we could sense that things had gotten better and as some police officers were walking by, we made our whereabouts known and they escorted us out to the back where we ran into several of the shooting victims in the back. >> it's frightening to even imagine what you've gone through and after the police got you out of the freezer, they led you to safety. what did you see at the scene? >> they let us out of the back section of the store and when i got there, there were as we got there four victims in one area, two victims were laying sitting in the grass next to the road that runs behind kroger, and i just turned and looked at the paramedics and said i'm a nurse, what do i do? what do you need me to do and just went around and checked on people, asked them how they were doing and made sure that people were conscious. there wasn't, you know, more
7:14 am
bleeding going on, those kinds of titcras to go to the krer employees and to our first responders. it's -- everybody says when they've seen this scenario it never happens in my community. i can tell you that's true living here for 33 years, but our police department, our fire department, our surrounding towns, the county, the county over from us, their presence was immediate and profound. >> absolutely. >> it could have been a whole lot worse had it been a weekend but it was just a typical thursday morning, thursday afternoon. >> we're happy it wasn't a lot worse. already devastating. thankfully, sara, you were there to help and, again, our hearts and prayers go out to you and everyone there in collierville. we want to thank you so much for speaking with this morning. we appreciate your time. thank you. >> you're welcome and please pray for the families involved. >> we absolutely will. thank you. george. >> yeah, we are praying for those families. we're going move on now to
7:15 am
the capitol, where the select committee investigating the january 6th riot announced it issued subpoenas to members of trump's inner circle, and rachel scott has the latest. good morning, rachel. >> reporter: george, good morning. lawmakers leading the select committee said no one would be off-limits, and now they have issued their very first subpoenas to some of former president donald trump's former advisers. on this list, take a look, mark meadows, dan scavino, kash patel and longtime trump adviser steve bannon. the committee is demanding those four men turn over documents and appear behind closed doors to testify in october. all of this intended to gain insight into trump's mindset in the days leading up to january 6th and as the violence unfolded that day. congressman adam schiff says that they will use the justice
7:16 am
department if necessary to enforce these subpoenas but trump is already vowing to fight this and this does mark a significant turning point in the congressional investigation into january 6th and lawmakers leading this committee say they are just getting started, george. >> okay, rachel, thanks very much. cecilia. we turn to that major development in the gabby petito case. a warrant issued for brian laundrie's arrest on federal charges as authorities search that nature reserve for any signs of him. trevor ault has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, gabby petito's boyfriend brian laundrie now wanted on a federal charge, but not for her homicide. he's accused of using a debit card and p.i.n. that didn't belong to him to allegedly withdraw at least a thousand dollars after gabby's death. a warrant now issued for his arrest if authorities can find him. in florida, search crews again scouring the nature reserve where his family told officials he may be. >> we're covering many, many acres so we need all this manpower. the more people, the more effective we are. >> reporter: with brian now missing for a week and a half, wilderness expert dixie resnik
7:17 am
taking us through the surrounding swamp. these are no doubt deadly conditions. >> absolutely. yes. >> reporter: saying only an expert could survive that long out here. what if your intent is to hide? >> that could be very, very dangerous for you. >> reporter: and the city of moab, utah, now investigating the police response to a fight between the couple in the weeks before gabby was killed though they say they are unaware of any breach in policy. and the fbi says while this warrant does allow them to arrest brian laundrie, this is still an ongoing investigation where they're looking into the facts of gabby petito's homicide. guys. >> all right, trevor, thank you so much. we're going to turn now to a showstopping night for the wnba in that stunning single-elimination round. superstar sabrina ionescu in her debut tying the record for 11 assists. but it was not enough against the mercury and sophie cunningham, who was on a roll last night, her 21 points leading phoenix to a thrilling

7:32 am
"controlling britney spears" and features insiders coming forward with allegations about how the superstar's conservatorship worked including allegations of intense surveillance set up to monitor her life. we're going to talk to the filmmakers in a moment. here's a first look at the new documentary "controlling britney spears." >> hi, britney. >> reporter: they're the team that brought the bombshell documentary "framing britney spears" which shined a light on her rise to fame and the free britney movement. a passionate fan base convinced she was being kept against her conservatorship against her will for 13 years. >> if britney tells us we're wrong and leave her alone, we will do just that. >> reporter: and tonight, they're back with a new documentary, "the new york times" presents "controlling britney spears" on fx and hulu. taking a look at new allegations about how the conservatorship worked. >> these are things that we saw with our own eyes. >> reporter: including interviews with insiders and a
7:33 am
former employee from the security team monitoring spears. the lengths he said the conservatorship took to keep track of her, including recording her and why he's speaking out now. >> one of the agents that worked with him came into my office and handed me the audio recording device and a usb drive and asked me to wipe it. i had them tell me what was on it. they seemed very nervous and said that it was extremely sensitive, that nobody can ever know about this, and that's why i need to delete everything on it. so there's no record of it. that raised so many red flags with me and i did not want to be complicit in whatever they were involved in, so i kept a copy because i don't want to delete evidence. >> and we are joined now by the co-creators samantha stark and liz day. welcome to you both. liz, let me begin with you.
7:34 am
we heard from the insider who worked on britney's security for nine years talking about the surveillance. what more can you tell us about the allegation of what you discovered? >> yes, so in the documentary this insider has come forward and has revealed a portrait of the way the conservatorship monitored and managed nearly every aspect of britney's life for the past 13 years. >> and, samantha, you reached out to black box security and a lawyer for them said they've always conducted themselves within professional, ethical and legal bounds and they are particularly proud of their work in keeping ms. spears safety. it was also said his actions were done with the knowledge and consent of britney. was the court aware of this audio recording? >> so that's the thing we don't know. it's so secretive that we're unclear what the court knows, so we'll have to find out. >> and how do you expect to find out? >> well, we don't know. we know britney's new lawyer has
7:35 am
called for an investigation and we know he's talked about not only her father jamie who's been the face of the conservatorship but other people who have been involved in the conservatorship that we are going to talk about in this documentary. >> what more did you learn about black box security? >> well, you know, when jamie was appointed britney's conservator back in 2008, he was given the authority to hire security for britney 24/7 and no one really knew what they did. they'd be in the background of photos with britney. but the level of control and the ways that they monitored and surveilled her, we certainly didn't know and i don't know that anyone ever knew before. >> you also, samantha, got access to some confidential court documents. what did those tell you? >> you know, we got these court documents, we got some from 2014, 2016, we saw from 2019 that britney had been expressing to the court that she wanted the conservatorship to end. she wanted to know how she can make it end and she really wanted her father not to be in
7:36 am
control of her and, you know, the public, the way that they showed it to the public seemed like britney wanted to be in it, everything was fine, nothing to see here, and so those documents really revealed to us that she had been expressing to the court that she wanted out far earlier than anybody knew. >> and, you know, your first documentary "framing britney spears" created such a splash. talk about how this one came together. >> well, i think that after britney spoke out in court in june and she really broke her silence publicly about how she felt about the conservatorship and she raised a lot of serious allegations of abuse and wanting her life back, a lot of people who had been involved over the years felt motivated to come forward to support her story and say, here's what i witnessed and it backs up, you know, some of the serious stuff she said. >> it's kind of amazing how fast the whole house of cards fell down. >> yeah, i mean i think britney speaking was really powerful. these people in the film reached out to us because they wanted to share their story because they
7:37 am
heard britney speak. >> and we also learned a lot more about britney since then. we now know she's engaged to be married to her boyfriend, sam asghari. you discovered in the confidential court documents that it may be possible she didn't have to wait? >> yeah, so that was a very revealing moment in the confidential court documents. back in 2014, britney's court-appointed lawyer told the court, you know, britney wants to possibly get married and change her lifestyle but she believes the conservatorship precludes her from doing that and the judge's response was, i think she can get married. i don't think we ever removed that right from her but you might not want to tell her that and her lawyer seems to kind of laugh along and agree and that was really shocking to us to see something so serious like that being treated, you know, like a joke. >> we know that britney has spoken in the last two hearings. do you think we'll hear from her in the next hearing? >> time will tell. we don't know. you know, on the 29th is the hearing, the judge is supposed
7:38 am
to hear the petition to remove her father jamie and the petition that her father filed to end the conservatorship so it's really unclear what will happen on the 29th. we'll see. >> what are the likely implications if there is another investigation, britney says she wants one, into the misconduct by her father? >> that's a really great question. you know, we know that britney's lawyer has filed court documents saying he wants to do a full financial investigation and an investigation into all of the conduct from jamie and anyone else involved in the conservatorship. >> so this may be just the beginning? >> i think that's safe to say. >> we'll learn a lot more tonight? >> definitely. >> thank you both. "the new york times" presents "controlling britney spears" premieres tonight at 10:00 p.m. on fx and streaming on hulu. cecilia? coming up, everybody, flight attendants testifying before lawmakers about air rage. it has been soaring during the pandemic and now there is a new push to help protect those flight attendants.
