>> reporter: robin, good morning. it is nearly impossible to wrap your head around the horror that unfolded here at this grocery store behind me. community members shopping on a saturday afternoon when police say an 18-year-old in tactical gear who drove from his home hours away came here, did reconnaissance around the store and we learned a store manager saw him sitting on a bench outside the store in camouflage gear the day before asking him to leave, then coming back the next day opening fire in the parking lot then inside. authorities say all of it, robin, driven by racist hate and just moments ago here right here on the scene the police commissioner telling us, had the suspect not been caught, that he planned to continue his rampage right down jefferson avenue here in buffalo. this morning, a demand for answers here after the deadly mass shooting at this supermarket in buffalo, new york, that authorities say was driven by racist hate. >> this is an absolute racist hate crime. this is someone who has hate in
their heart, soul and mind. >> reporter: an 18-year-old gunman opening fire at this tops supermarket around 2:30 in the afternoon saturday, killing ten people and injuring three others. >> active shooter at the tops. still shots being fired. >> reporter: this is the moment authorities arrested payton gendron after he unleashed terror on shoppers and employees, starting in the parking lot and continuing inside. >> contact homicide. we have bodies here. >> reporter: officials say the gunman was wearing body armor and tactical helmet, carrying an assault-style rifle and say the shooter planned this, driving from a county several hours away to allegedly target a predominantly black neighborhood. livd threrod 50hoe was stopped. zeneta everheart whose child was injured in the shooting describing the horror. >> when the incident happened,
he was helping an older woman in the parking lot with the car. zaire was shot in his lower neck area and it came out his back on the left side. >> reporter: jennifer tookes a young mother who was inside the store with with her cousin, telling me she escaped through a back door. >> i walked in probably i want to say two seconds before he came in. i just got around the corner. then you hear gunshots so i ran down the aisle, went through -- i saw the opening through the deli and ran out the back door. >> reporter: her cousin hiding in a meat freezer after they got separated. somehow they both survived knowing so many others did not. >> when i went in the store, the lady was standing there, it was like she was looking down in her purse like she was looking for her keys and when i came out and she was there right there on the ground with the cart on top of her. >> these were people you had just seen in front of the store? >> yeah, when i walked in they .
that could have been us. >> reporter: all ten victims who lost their lives identified. the youngest, roberta drury, just 32 years old. many of the victims were active members of this community. 77-year-old pearl young, she was a churchgoer and a substitute teacher. her sister in mourning. >> i pray she had no pain, that it happened so quick and she was gone like that. >> reporter: 86-year-old ruth whitfield also killed shopping after visiting her husband at a nursing home nearby. her son, a former fire pcommiss remembering his mother. >> we're devastated. we're devastated. we're a very close family. we're a very, very close family, and my mother was the glue that held us all together. >> reporter: retired police officer aaron salter jr., working as a security guard at the store, losing his life after bravely taking on the shooter. >> i can't say enough about our retired fellow colleague, aaron salter, who confronted this individual to save the lives of others.
>> reporter: but it was his battle with the gunman that allowed so many others to escape as his friend told our stephanie ramos. >> i'm going to remember him as a person that i thought he was going to change the world and now he'll be just remembered as a person that saved lives and i know people in this city will never forget what he did. >> reporter: president biden condemning the attack. >> a lone gunman armed with weapons of war and hate-filled soul shot and killed ten innocent people in cold blood. >> reporter: the gunman seen in court saturday. >> i understand the charges. >> reporter: this morning charged with first degree murder, being kept behind bars on suicide watch, held without bail. his public defender pleading not guilty for him as authorities dig through his past. officials searching his family home interviewing his parents. >> it appeared that his plans were to drive out of here and then continue driving down jefferson avenue looking to
shoot more black people, as he put it, and possibly even go to another store location. >> reporter: according to law enforcement, the suspect previously posted extremist views online including a 180-page document fixated on replacement theory, a white supremacist belief that nonwhites will replace white people. >> a sick, demented individual who was fueled a daily diet of hate. >> reporter: the text also outlining a plan for his attack, including praise for other mass shooters, and authorities here say some of the names of those shooters on his gun. authorities revealing the suspect was investigated last june after threatening a shooting around the time of his hometown high school graduation. state police took him in to a local hospital for a mental health evaluation but no charges were ever filed. >> just quiet, smart kid that i wouldn't think could be able to do anything like what he did yesterday.
>> reporter: and you heard the police commissioner telling us here this morning that they have now uncovered evidence that the suspect did plan to keep going in this neighborhood after this store. that young mother, jennifer tookes, finding the back exit told me she will never forget seeing that elderly woman on the way in, passing her in on the parking lot an a typical saturday afternoon only to find her when she came outlying in that parking lot, her shopping cartwright next to her. she said she will never be able to get her out of her mind. george? >> so difficult. david, thanks. we'll get to the other mass shooting, one person killed. fur others critically wounded inside a church where worshippers took down the shooter and saved lives. chief national correspondent matt gutman is on the scene in laguna woods. good morning, matt. >> reporter: hey, good morning, george. authorities telling me this morning they're still working to understand why that suspect chose this particular church. they say he's not from here. they're also going through 34 eye witness interviews hoping they'll understand a motive.
at this point the one thing that's clear is the heroics of the pastor and parishioners who put an end to that rampage. this morning, authorities say when the gunman inside the southern california church stopped to reload, the congregants and pastor all in their 60s and 70s pounced. >> we believe a group of churchgoers detained him and hog-tied his legs with an extension cord and confiscated at least two weapons from him. that group of churchgoers displayed what we believe is exceptional heroism and bravery in intervening to stop the suspect. they undoubtedly prevented additional injuries and fatalities. >> reporter: the suspect described as an asian man in his 60s had already killed one person and wounded five others at the irvine taiwanese presbyterian church. eyewitnesses tells abc news the gunman stood at the front of the church and around 1:30 p.m. congregates were taking pictures together, and he opened fire.
churchgoers diving under takes and pews for cover. one eye witness saying when the suspect stopped to reload, the pastor slammed him with a chair and several parishioners piled on him, tying him up. authorities arriving shortly thereafter arresting the already bound gunman. >> the suspect was not injured during the incident and he was taken into custody. he's believed to be an asian male adult in his 60s. we don't believe he lives in this area. >> reporter: four of the wounded remain in critical condition this morning. all of the victims were adults in their 60s, 70s and 80s. >> this is a very tragic incident for the victims, their families and this entire community. >> reporter: law enforcement officials tell me investigators interviewed the suspect through the night and into the morning. he's being booked into the orange county jail, likely facing a murder charge and attempted murder charges. george? >> okay, matt, thanks. let's bring in our chief justice
correspondent, pierre thomas. pierre, more evidence we're facing, just an epidemic of violence and hate in this nation. >> reporter: george, good morning. the numbers tell the story. from friday through 9:30 last night there were 312 gun violence incidents in the u.s. where 127 people were killed, at least 294 wounded. 72 hours in america, stunning chronic epidemic gun violence, george. >> pierre, it's pretty clear now that some signs -- important signs were missed in the buffalo massacre. >> reporter: that's right. multiple law enforcement sources telling us during the suspect's senior year in high school, he allegedly wrote a paper where he mentioned murder/suicide. school officials contacted the state police. there was an investigation but no charges were filed and the matter was apparently dropped. about a year later this same young man was able to legally buy the assault weapon used to kill all those people. and there's great frustration about the suspect's obsession with white supremacy and past mass shooters. authorities are investigating repeated hate-filled posts on major social media platforms which may have been written by the killer. it was all right there. >> pierre thomas, thanks. t.j.? all right, george, we want
to turn to two people inside that supermarket in buffalo. i'm joined by fragrance harris stanfield and her daughter, yahnia brown-mcreynolds. both worked there. ladies, i'm sorry for the circumstances that brought use together, but it's good to see you both. fragrance, can you tell me, describe for me, was it something you first saw or something you first heard that alerted you that you needed to start running? >> the first thing i felt was a pain in my neck, my stress point was extremely sensitive. i turned to my daughter to speak to her and we heard gunshots. i didn't start running at that point. no one did. we all stood still and looked towards the front door before we started running. we saw the security guard backing up and going for his weapon and we all began to run. >> and, yahnia, you made the decision, though, to hide, right? you didn't start running. you wanted to hide and be quiet. hainstd of stamember that momene
ruin >>t s somei was kid. if you don't feel like you can run -- because i was frozen in time. i literally couldn't move so i thought best to hide instead of try to run and get caught, you know. >> yahnia, as you were hiding, what were you hearing around you? >> i heard all the gunshots. i heard all the bodies fall. i heard everything. it was terrifying. >> and, fragrance, as you're trying to run and get to safety, not sure what's going on you have that worry but it was going through your head you had to worry about your daughter as well. >> yes, i had grabbed her arm as i started running, so i'm thinking she was behind me the whole time. i never looked back.
a mother and daughter both bumped into me. the daughter knocked to the ground. so i literally thought i was gone at that point, not sure how i got up to keep running but i didn't look behind me until i got all the wa r . >>ndfrrance, tt ment lkbo you also wanted to keep going because you didn't know what the fate of your daughter was but you knew you had two grandbabies at home. can you tell me that thought process going on? you were thinking about the kids at home. >> yeah, yeah, it was pretty devastating. i said, if i try to go back, you know, if she's still alive, she could see me get killed. that would be devastating to her. i don't know how she would recover and not have me to support her. there was also the thought that
i i go back and i get killed and she's already gone that the children would have no one. i mean, we -- i have other kids and i have my husband, but to lose your mother and your grandmother and for my younger kids to lose their mom and their oldest sister would be devastating. >> yahnia, what was the reunion like when you were finally able to get back together? >> i cried a lot. she would not let me go, at all. i'm like, mom, i need to breathe. she did not care. as long as i was breathing next to her. >> yeah, we pretty much collided into each other. >> right. >> well, ladies, i know it's a horrific time for this country but especially for your community. i'm glad we were able to muster up a smile here at the end but, ladies, you all hold on and hug each other as tight as you can. fragrance and yahnia, thank you
for spending time with us, okay? >> thank you. >> thank you. >> oh, my, for the mother, all those different thoughts to be going through her head at that kind of time. president biden and first lady dr. jill biden are heading to buffalo tomorrow. let's go to our senior white house correspondent mary bruce and, mary, we know the white house wants to address what happened on two fronts including gun control? >> reporter: they do, robin. you are right, the president and the first lady will be in buffalo tomorrow to meet with victims' families and to try to begin the process of healing for this community and for the country and the president as we have heard has labeled this a racially motivated act of white supremacy but there is no question there will be fresh scrutiny in washington this week, not only on the debate over gun reforms but also on the question of hateful rhetoric and on the politicians and the members of the media who have embraced racist fringe theories like replacement theory which was espoused by the alleged buffalo shooter. i think it's important for us all to remember that president biden said he was inspired to run for president because of how former president trump responded to white supremacists marching
through charlottesville, virginia. bin made this issue a real centerpiece of his campaign and has taken steps so far and launched the first national strategy to counter domestic terrorism but advocates say it's not enough and want to see this administration and the president put more political muscle behind this issue and the issue of guns but we have seen this many times, robin, despite repeated efforts by some in washington. there simply is no appetite from republicans and some democrats to enact meaningful gun reform. robin? >> as you have said, we have seen this many, many times. mary, thank you. okay, coming up the latest on the baby formula crisis, the fda commissioner will join us as families struggle to find supply. and we're tracking the latest on the war in ukraine. ukrainian forces making advances as russia faces a possibility of a neighboring country joining nato. but first good morning, ginger. >> hey, good morning to you all. this afternoon we are going to

from erielle reshef. good morning, erielle. >> reporter: good morning, to you, george. despite efforts by most estimates this crisis could take weeks to resolve. in the meantime, many families we talk to say they are desperately searching for formula, and the clock is ticking. this morning, as the formula shortage strains families nationwide, lawmakers in washington vowing to take action to help resolve it. >> we must do something as quickly as possible, but as safely as possible and use caution for these babies. >> reporter: the house working on two bills, the first emergency funding to expedite the process for the u.s. to purchase formula from fda approved facilities abroad. the second, widening formula access under government programs. that help can't come soon enough for new parents from coast to coast. >> it's hard. it's really hard. it's that -- it's scary. i mean, it's super scary. it's the only thing she can eat. >> my husband is running to three or four different stores just trying to find something.
>> reporter: 43% of formula varieties are unavailable nationwide. eight states plus d.c. have more than 50% of various kinds of formula out of stock. >> we went from formula being sent to us to scrambling and looking all over the place for it. >> reporter: mom amy dolan who lives in flanders, new jersey, says she's faced a crisis finding the formula her baby conner needs because of his milk protein allergy. >> we've been actively looking all the time, you know, every night we lay in bed and checking what websites we can find, and how much it's going to cost. people saw it as an opportunity to buy all this formula and price gouge parents who will pay anything. >> reporter: the fda now saying it is taking steps to dramatically improve supply in the u.s. in a matter of weeks. and one of the top companies now warning that this could last through the end of the year and as we've talked about, many
families going to social media to alert one another when there is a restock of formula at pharmacies and grocery stores in their area. george? >> erielle, thanks. let's bring in the smcommission of the fda. thanks for joining us. you tweeted about an announement about how manufacturers and suppliers abroad may import their products into the u.s. what more can you tell us about that? >> sure. george, it's good to be with you and glad i can address this issue which is of great concern. you grandparent of siof whom is an infant formula kid, so well aware of what's needed. so we are moving on the product that was intended for other countries and i anticipate that by the end of the day today we'll have a detailed announcement about how that is possible. remember that the instructions need to be in a language that can be understood by mothers and caregivers that are putting the formula together for these infants and also we have to be able to test the formula to make sure that the 30 required
constituents are actually there in the right amounts. >> nothing will be coming in that's not safe? >> that's right. we're going to assure that the product is tested, that it's coming from reliable manufacturers, most of whom we know quite well already and that we do the testing that's needed on the basis needed to assure it's safe. >> abbott is saying it will take ten weeks to get their factory in sturgis, michigan, which had to shut down back up and running. anything you can do to help them move that along more quickly. >> we are working closely with abbott and i expect that in a very short period of time we're going to have an announcement about the path forward. i think we figured out what to do. abbott's recently indicated that -- assured us in two weeks they can be in action and begin to do their part in getting supply back on the shelves. of course, it takes longer to
get in full motion. george, i want to point out one of the examples that you gave in your show of an infant who has special needs. that is really of critical importance to us at fda. we're looking at case by case to make sure that no infants go without the formula they need. we recognize it's difficult for parents and may take some time. but we'll get there and each and individual case. that plan in sturgis, michigan, was making a number of special formulas that are really lifesaving for infants and so we have a whole team that's doing nothing but working on making sure that that formula can get out even from that plant when it's going to be life saving. >> some suggested invoking the defense production act to get more manufacturers up and running to speed this along. >> i don't think we need the defense production act. i think the manufacturers are ready to go and they're going to increase their production. in fact, they already have. importantly there's been more formula bought, about 10% more
in the last month than in the month before the recall. so there is formula out there. it's just not in the right place at the right time. so this issue of the supply chain and how it gets disrupted when a major manufacturer has to shut down a plant, you know, is a real lesson for all of us that we're working on rectifying but it is taking just basic work to get the supply chain right. >> some parents in a desperate situation may move to make their own formula. remind them why that's a bad idea. >> that's a very bad idea because formula, as i said, has 30 constituents that have to be there in the right amount. ten of which if they're there too much, if there's too much of that constituent, can be dangerous. so formula for infants is a total substitute for breast milk which god has for reasons we don't know has made into a magnificent nutritional supplement. so we need the infant formula. it's critical for so many
families but it's got to be the right stuff. >> dr. califf, thanks for your time and information this morning. robin? going to move on to the latest on the war in ukraine. finland and sweden moving closer to becoming members of nato. as ukrainian forces make gains around the country's second largest city. senior foreign correspondent ian pannell is there on the scene for us in ukraine. good morning, ian. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, robin. russia has failed to achieve substantial territorial gains over the past month while sustaining consistently high levels of attrition. that's what the uk ministry of defense is saying, not just on the battlefield that vladimir putin's war aims are going awry. this morning, the tide of battle shifting, the ukrainian counteroffensive in the northeast successfully pushing russian forces out of the areas surrounding kharkiv. the ukrainian military posting this video as they say they forced russian troops to retreat back across the border out of ukraine. now western military aid in the
hands of the ukrainians playing a crucial role as they take the fight to the russians. these are u.s. howitzers, powerful advanced artillery systems that will play a major role. so far russia's lost one-third of its ground combat forces that were initially committed to the invasion. amid these losses nato saying russia's been unable to reach their strategic goals in the country. >> they failed to take it. they're pulling back from around kharkiv. the major offensive in donbas has stalled. >> reporter: in another major blow to russia, sweden just announcing it will join finland to apply for nato membership, expanding nato's presence on russia's border, something putin was trying to avoid. despite these setbacks russia
moving forward slowly in parts of the east and pushing to take full control of the port city of mariupol. this video released on sunday by pro-russian separatists shows fire attacks raining down on the azovstal plant where the last ukrainian fighters in the city are holed up. an expert telling abc news these are deadly incendiary munitions. inside the plant this ukrainian soldier sings as explosions can be heard in the background.

[ singing in foreign language ] over the weekend with over 200 million people watching the group bringing home gold for ukraine winning the eurovision song contest. well, guys, despite all the ukrainian successes of late the cost to this country in terms of blood and treasure are enormous. we don't know the true number of war casualties but they are mounting. they are significant. the damage to infrastructure is huge and the situation in other parts of the country this morning remains bleak. guys? >> it does, ian, thank you. that ukrainian spirit, my goodness. >> incredible. coming up here we will turn to something millions of folks

>> reporter: good morning to you, t.j. it's a bizarre sight. we knew this captivated the whole world, but after a week off it's clear the public interest in this trial has only been galvanized. these are easily a few hundred people, spectators, supporters, people trying to gain entrance into the courtroom. and as i flew in yesterday there were a number of people wearing t-shirts specifically designed to argue for this case. now, what we're expecting inside today in court is amber heard and this cross-examination. now, last time she was on the stand, she testified to a number of alleged instances where she says johnny depp was abusive, now depp's attorneys will be trying to poke holes in her story. we're also expecting a number of other witnesses as well. siblings for depp and heard and one of johnny depp's ex-girlfriends, ellen barkin who testified in a previous case he once angrily threw a bottle of wine during an argument in a hotel room. that's something that depp denies, and right now the focus is going to be on amber heard and what could be a very contentious cross-examination.
t.j.? >> these are hollywood stars. this is often described as a hollywood trial but you're in fairfax, virginia. explain to folks why it's happening there. >> reporter: sure, it's a question a lot of people have asked and the short answer is that this is a defamation case based on an op-ed that amber heard wrote in "the washington post" and the servers for the digital edition of the paper are located here in fairfax. heard's attorneys tried to get this moved to california. they were unsuccessful and what could give more of a hint is the fact that depp's attorneys have indicated they wanted it held here because they felt the laws here were more favorable to their care, t.j. >> a lot of folks will be watching again. trevor, thank you as always. all right, t.j., coming up next, sam champion is here. it is national barbecue day. it really is. come on back. ♪♪ ♪♪ when you're chuggin' through life, sometimes you just wanna stop.

for each other is our strength. we will continue trying to expand our beautiful family. we are grateful for all of your support. we kindly ask for privacy during this difficult moment. for "good morning america," kaylee hartung, abc news, los angeles. >> our thanks to kaylee for that report. our chief medical correspondent dr. jen ashton, a practicing ob/gyn is here. >> yeah. >> when you saw the post -- you know, and she's 40 years old. was that a factor at all? >> i mean, it is obstetrically. we have this horrible term for women over the age of 35 in obstetrics. we call it advanced maternal age. i mean it's unbelievable to think that 40 can be a risk factor now because that is so young but in terms of miscarriage, pregnancy loss, it can be. we don't understand why. a lot of pregnancy losses are unexplained but there is a list
that twwe tend to go through. chrome soemal abnormalities that come from the egg or potentially the sperm obviously at the top of the list, previous pregnancy loss, any kind of structural abnormality in the cervix or uterus caused by previous surgery and a whole list of hormonal disorders including diabetes, thyroid disease, peri-menopausal hormone imbalance. there is a long list but doesn't make it any easier. >> physical, emotional. what do you tell your patients and their partners? >> you know, first of all, include the partner because they're oftentimes forgotten. you know, no matter how common this is, 40% over the age of 40 pregnancies end prematurely. this is a loss. it doesn't matter whether it occurs one week into pregnancy or 8 1/2 months in pregnancy and we're struggling with how we deal with that and the first step, i think, which is a good one is renaming this, it is called spontaneous abortion or miscarriage, the lay term. now we're shifting to a term that's less blame placing on the woman, which is pregnancy loss. and i think that's appropriate
and i think it's important. >> i know, that's why i was phrasing it like that when i saw the note come in and i remembered people saying, i mean, just -- you put a stigma on it when you say it another way. >> that's right. >> is there anything, anything that a woman can do especially as she gets older? >> you know, what i normally will tell women is that there are things under their control and things that are not under their control. before pregnancy the things that can be under control, you know, cutting down on alcohol use, smoking, when you are pregnant early prenatal care is the key and then again you want to loop in your midwife or your ob/gyn taking prenatal vitamins with folic acid three months before conception if it's a planned pregnancy. robin, remember, 40% to 50% of pregnancies in this country are unplanned. that doesn't mean undesired. it means unplanned so some of these things we can control and some of these things we can't. >> hope you'll talk about it more on "gma3." >> we definitely will. george has a very special
guest. >> sure do. bob woodruff with a closer look at the nation's opioid epidemic. the cdc reported that thousands of americans died last year from it caused by a jump in deaths by fentanyl. you had your own experience with this synthetic opioid and giving us a first look at the documentary. >> it's just been skyrocketing, this crisis in the united states. you know, the number of fentanyl fatalities have been rising every single year from the big cities to the small towns with victims at any age and many of them had no idea that fentanyl was in it and one of the medics who actually saved my life in iraq 14 years ago became a victim of fentanyl himself. covering the war in iraq, fentanyl became part of my life. in january of 2006 my cameraman doug and i were embedded with the u.s. and iraqi forces reporting about the status of the war. while traveling from village to village an explosion nearly killed us. we were rushed to the baghdad hospital. this blurry video shows one of
the medics who saved me, specialist dave williamson. >> you helped to save my life. what do you remember? >> i remember everything. we knew that you were in serious, serious, serious dire straits. >> reporter: given the severity of my injuries he injected me with multiple drugs, including his most powerful pain killer -- fentanyl. >> our go-to drug was fentanyl. the fentanyl that we had was given in micrograms and it was in glass vials. >> you knew exactly how much was in there. you had complete control over it and you knew that this was the kind of opioid that would kill my pain. >> yeah, we had a very solid understanding of what it is, what it's capable of doing and also how dangerous it was. >> reporter: but when the war began to wind down and before the u.s. withdrew from iraq, dave left the military and like
many others descended into the world of posttraumatic stress disorder. now at home the same man who had used fentanyl to save me ultimately became addicted to fentanyl himself and like so many others, it started with prescription painkillers given to him after surgery. >> they prescribed me percocet and then i had a very close friend of mine introduce me to oxycontin. >> reporter: now several years later after hitting rock bottom, dave and his wife jessica who was also suffering from addiction are sober and raising three young boys. >> if any of my children are proud of me or proud of their mother, then at least one of us did something right. >> they nearly died from fentanyl but now completely clean and both have great jobs and hoping they never ever seen fentanyl again. >> thank goodness they're on the mend. you prefer to use the word poison to overdose. >> we traveled around the country.
it seems like every friend, every family that lost someone say the same thing. they just did not know that fentanyl was in it. so they said if you ask for something that you never wanted and you die from it, that's poison. that's not addiction. >> they're right. no question about that. cannot wait to see this documentary. it's going to air tonight at 8:00 eastern, 9:00 pacific.
