good morning, america. it's so great to have you with us. we have a lot to cover on this busy holiday weekend including millions of americans hitting the roads and airports filling up to prepandemic levels. this as some are cleaning up after severe weather rolled through overnight like in bedford county, virginia. we'll have more on the travel picture ahead. we'll get to that in a moment. we do begin in texas four days after the massacre at robb elementary school in uvalde, as the details of the police response begin to become clear this morning. >> parents there demanding answers, why were officers held back as children were dying inside the school? some of the students begging for help, able to hear police on the other side of the door. we begin this morning with abc's mireya villarreal in san antonio. good morning to you, mireya. >> reporter: good morning. parents i spoke with, some who lost their children and some with survivors say they are going through a lot of different emotions right there's anger, frustration,
7:03 am
sadness, of course, but there's also a lot of confusion right now, especially with this new information coming out on the investigation. they want to be able to grieve with their families. they want to be able to grief with the community but it's become a distraction and they want some clarity and truth. this morning, a stunning admission from authorities in texas, acknowledging police should have acted sooner to breach the classroom with the gunman. >> of course, it was not the right decision, it was the wrong decision, period. there's no excuse for that. >> reporter: with parents waiting desperately outside robb elementary. authorities now revealing that a teacher propped open a door at 11:27 a.m. the shooter used it to enter minutes later. then at 11:33 the shooter entered classrooms 111 and 112. by 11:35 seven uvalde police officers are inside the school. but police do not enter the barricaded classroom wrongly believing that the situation was
7:04 am
no longer an active shooter but a barricad >> there were children in the classroom that were at risk, and it was, in fact, still an active shooter situation. >> reporter: also at 12:03 the 911 calls from inside the rooms begin. over a 44-minute period, students inside begging for help. finally at 12:50 authorities entering the room using a key and killing the shooter who law enforcement say had purchased 1,657 rounds of ammunition ahead of his rampage. on friday afternoon, governor abbott reacting to the new details about the shooting time line after he praised law enforcement on tuesday. >> i was misled. i am livid about what happened. there are people who deserve answers the most, and those are the families whose lives have been destroyed. they need answers that are
7:05 am
accurate. >> reporter: and now this morning as we see new images of schoolchildren escaping through windows, we're hearing from the family of 10-year-old lexi rubio killed at the school. her father, a uvalde sheriff's deputy, holding her picture close to his heart responding to the shooting while off duty. >> i go turn on my radio. i turn it on, and like that, i just hear panic in everybody's voices. and me, i just got dressed, got in my unit, took off. and i get there, and i see where everybody is posted at, in front of my baby girl's door. once i see them open the door and open fire, my heart dropped. >> reporter: lexi's mother hoping her daughter's dreams
7:06 am
can live on. >> she wanted to be a lawyer, like i said. she wanted to play softball. she wanted to make a difference. and i want that for her now if she still can, so if people can help that dream be realized, that would be great. >> reporter: several victims were taken here to the san antonio area for treatment with very serious injuries. noah orona is one of them recovering at methodist children's hospital. shot in the back and recovering well but his parents say it will be a long journey to get him through this. in the meantime, on the investigative front right now we do understand the texas department of public safety is going to conduct a thorough review of everything that happened by law enforcement on that day on that scene to make sure they get to the truth here. >> guys. more on this, let's bring
7:07 am
in abc's senior investigative reporter aaron katersky joining us in the studio. aaron, always great to have you and hear from you. of course, as we saw in mireya's report, so much anger, so much frustration on the part of parents demanding accountability here. what more are you learning about why officers waited so long to breach that classroom? >> it was a cascade of errors, whit. even before the gunfire, a door was propped open, an officer drove right past the suspect and then the worst, the delay in sending officers in. the commander did not act on what 911 operators knew, which was the shooter was still shooting. the commander treated him as if he no longer posed a threat to any more kids, and the head of the texas rangers called that the wrong decision. we just don't know why the commander did not seem to realize what was happening right in front of him. >> just so upsetting for everybody is that information coming out yesterday. i want to ask about the shooter. he spoke openly on social media sites in chat rooms about some of his intentions. what were some of the key missed signals? >> these failures started even before tuesday. the first warning sign came back
7:08 am
in september, the suspect asked his sister while he was under age to buy him a gun and then an obsession with guns, with a propensity toward violence, even animal abuse were all evident in social media messages. one user even asked the subject, are you going to shoot up a school? nobody seems to have taken seriously this trail of digital red flags. >> and another thing that's so alarming here following the massacre, of course, every parent across the country is trying to see how safe their community is. but authorities are now warning about possible copycat. >> a new nypd bulletin we obtained at abc news said what happened in uvalde could spur an uptick in school threats. we've already seen a number of examples around the country. there was one in bellport, new york, a 16-year-old threatened to attack his school. he said it was a joke, but police are now taking no chances and they place this kid under arrest. >> serious warning they're taking seriously. aaron katersky, as always, thank you so much.
7:09 am
>> janai, over to you. now to the nra annual convention taking place in houston just 300 miles from robb elementary schl e. abc's congressional correspondent rachel scott is there in houston for us. rachel, good morning. >> reporter: janai, good tion kki off right here in houston hours away from the uvalde massacre. the nra said it would reflect on the tragedy, pray for the victims, but protesters who gathered here say that is not enough. just days after the uvalde elementary school massacre, the national rifle association kicking off its annual convention in houston. hundreds of protesters line the streets. mounted police on patrol. >> why did you decide to come out? >> because my daughter is a teacher, and she had to learn howe to pack bullet wounds in her classroom in order to teach. >> reporter: 14-year-old aubrey long told me she's tired of going to school in fear. >> i shouldn't go to school and be scared i could be hurt that day because we can't control our guns.
7:10 am
>> reporter: inside the convention prominent republican figures took to the stage condemning the violence. former president donald trump reading the names of the lives lost, the bell ringing for each one, but he rejected calls for gun reform. >> as always in the wake of these tragedies, the various gun control policies being pushed by the left would have done nothing to prevent the horror that took place, absolutely nothing. >> reporter: but the majority of americans support some kind of action. nearly 90% support expanded background checks. gun owner b.j. spaulding told me even though he thinks guns aren't the issue -- >> do you think america has a gun problem? >> absolutely not. >> reporter: -- he's behind universal background checks. >> that's one thing i don't have a problem with. >> reporter: and theresa wakefield a gun owner and grandmother of 13, said the uvalde shooting brought her to tears telling me lawmakers should reconsider the legal age to buy a gun. >> you can't buy alcohol.
7:11 am
why should you be able to buy weapons at 18? that's heartbreaking. but guns don't kill people. people kill people. >> reporter: some republicans did back out of attending the nra convention. texas lieutenant governor dan patrick said he didn't want to add to the pain and the suffering that so many families are feeling. but the republican officials that did show up sent a message that now is not the time for gun reform. south dakota governor kristi noem saying that calls to further restrict access to guns is all about control and called it garbage. >> rachel scott, it is a conversation that lots of people all over the country are having this morning. thank you for that report. switching gears now, the 35 million of us will be hitting the roads in spite of soaring gas prices this weekend. abc's elwyn lopez joins us from atlanta with more. good morning to you, elwyn. >> reporter: hey, eva, good morning.
7:12 am
the unofficial start to the summer is in full swing. the travel rush already picking up, and while here in atlanta we're averaging just over $4 a gallon, the nationwide average is at $4.60, but the pain at the pump is not enough to stop travelers from hitting the roads. aaa is predicting 35 million people will travel by car this holiday weekend. and atlanta once again one of the busiest joining chicago and boston. now, guys, if you're looking for the lowest gas prices, apps like gas buddy can help you out. other apps like waze and google maps can help you find the fastest and most efficient ways to get to where you're going. as for when to head out, experts say the best time is now, any time before 10:00 a.m. the worst time afternoon hours between 1:00 and 6:00 p.m. >> get out the door quickly. all right, elwyn, thank you. some travelers already running into turbulence this weekend with hundreds of flights canceled this morning. millions of americans still taking to the skies as travel is expected to hit prepandemic

7:14 am
expected to break travel records, delta's allison ausband says this weekend's operation is critical. in many ways this is like a dry run for the summer. you're expecting even more passengers after this. > we want the dry run to go great this weekend, because that will tell us, right, how the rest of the summer is going to go. >> reporter: on your travel check list get to the airport early. make sure you don't have prohibited items in your carry-on and have the airline app ready in case you need to quickly rebook. >> don't let the crowd concern you. it is going to be busy getting through, but know that it's absolutely safe. if you want to wear your mask on board, you can absolutely wear your mask on board. >> reporter: now airports should have less crowds today and tomorrow, but come monday it's going to pick right back up again as people go back home. guys. >> all right, important to remember. fewer crowds today and tomorrow. turning overseas now where russian troops are gaining territory in the eastern donbas region of ukraine. the troops taking small villages while ukraine's president
7:15 am
zelenskyy warns that the russians want to burn these towns, quote, to ashes. zelenskyy saying he is willing to meet with vladimir putin if it would end the war and get life back to normal. this comes after earlier this week he dismissed the idea that he should give up some territory in order to reach a peace agreement. now for some good news for parents desperately trying to get ahold of formula to feed their babies. the fda says it will import more than 1 million cans of infant formula from australia. that comes out to roughly 27.5 million eight-ounce servings. the agency says they are working around the clock to try to get parents the formula that they need. now to what some of those rising prices could mean for your holiday weekend gathering. the commerce department saying inflation eased a bit in april, prices rising 6.3% after a 6.6% increase in march. abc's deidre bolton is here with more and some ways to save. deidre. >> some ways to save, that is the key because this weekend
7:16 am
americans will spend a lot more for their backyard barbecues than memorial day last year. so protein is the biggest offender. chicken, take a look at these prices, up more than 16%, so about 30 cents more per pound and chicken legs bone in this year, 1.89 versus last year, 1.58. ground beef up nearly 15% so more than 80 cents more per pound than last year. hot dogs actually the biggest jump, up 6.9%, $1.40 per pound is very different from last year. now, if you're the host you can count on protein of about eight ounces per person, if you're trying to count it out, and with two side dishes it will cost you about $2.85 per guest compared to last year's plate which would have cost you about $2.50 per plate. now, while most fruits and vegetables are not cheap, they have seen a less dramatic price increase. so you can reduce the budget by mixing in maybe some mushrooms or onions with your burgers or make kebab, you alternate chicken and veggies on a skewer.
7:17 am
if you have a big box membership, costco, sam's club, there are boxes of about 40 beef patties on offer, $35. that equals basically less than a buck per burger. depending on the region, chicken legs and thighs are coming in at 9.15 a pound so chicken their boneless skinless breasts at $11.80 per pound. another way to say and arguably the most fun, if you're hosting, ask friends and family to contribute. let's do. go potluck because eating together is the idea, so if you're the host -- >> don't invite janai. >> i don't want to hear about hot dogs. either order less food or invite fewer people. >> with her mom and mac and cheese, i will invite myself. >> that loaf. >> i do the banana bread gluten-free that eva loves. now you know what we bring to the potluck. >> thanks, deidre. >> deidre, thanks very much. now to "gma" at the jubilee. just five days away as the uk prepares to celebrate queen elizabeth's 70 years on the throne.
7:18 am
abc's maggie rulli joins us live from covent garden in london with more. maggie, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. we are reaching peak jub excitement here in london. you can hear it and see it everywhere you go. it seems like around every corner right now in this city, you see flags hanging high, posters of the queen, decorations of corgis, my personal favorite decoration, janai. you know, right now the queen is actually not in town. she decided to go on a pre-jubilee break and headed to scotland where she's staying at her balmoral estate. it's something she often does for about a week this time of year. but, you know, janai, it's hard to overstate just how important this jubilee is for the monarchy and for the entire country. you know, queen elizabeth is the longest serving british monarch so this is the first time the country is celebrating a platinum jubilee. you can hear them celebrating it right now because they're holding nothing back. there are thousands of events planned here in london, across the country, across the entire commonwealth.
7:19 am
you know, we were up at buckingham palace earlier this week, and we saw hundreds of put up scaffolding and staging - for this week's events and actually earlier this morning prince william was there reviewing the troops ahead of this week's big parade. so this is shaping up to be a huge moment. not just for the monarchy but really the royal family as well. it's kind of turning into a reunion. we understand that prince harry and meghan have said they're coming back for the jubilee and they're bringing their two little ones, which mean, guys, this is the first time they'll come to london as a family of four. everyone is so excited to see them here in town, and, guys, picking up on it, that's the theme is excitement. you know, the jubilee is actually still a few days away, but everyone here is already celebrating. we're already excited. >> lots of excitement, and the party has already started. maggie, thank you so much. and the celebration of the queen's 70 years on the throne kicks off next thursday.

stunning admission that officers were inside the building at robb elementary school in uvalde, texas, for close to an hour before they were allowed to take the gunman down. this as children trapped in their classroom were calling police asking for help. the incident commander concedes that holding the officers back was, quote, the wrong decision. also right now, there are now a dozen confirmed or suspected cases of monkeypox in the united states. on friday the cdc released new guidance on who should receive a vaccine against the disease. those on the list include scientists who work with the virus and health care workers exposed to monkeypox. and shifting gears here, the golden state warriors will have to wait a little bit longer to find out who they will face off against in the nba finals. the miami heat forcing a game seven in the eastern conference finals with a do or die win over the boston celtics. game seven will be played back in miami on sunday evening. well, we start this half hour with the highly publicized case between johnny depp and amber heard now in the hands of the jury. that's after both sides
7:32 am
delivered closing arguments in the six-week-long trial and abc's ike ejiochi has more. >> there is an abuser in this courtroom, but it is not mr. depp. >> reporter: this morning after six weeks of powerful testimony, johnny depp's libel lawsuit against his ex-wife amber heard is finally in the hands of the jury. for weeks the trial between the acclaimed movie star and his ex-wife capturing the attention of millions. on friday, both sides wrapping up closing arguments. depp's attorney asking the jury to give mr. depp his life back and that amber heard ruined his life. heard's lawyer calling depp a monster who not only abused heard but also continued to smear her name after she filed for divorce tarnishing her acting career. >> because in mr. depp's world u doheilt a campaign of global humiliation against you. >> reporter: depp is suing heard for $50 million over her 2018
7:33 am
"washington post" op-ed. she described herself as a survivor of domestic abuse without naming her alleged abuser by name. heard is countersuing depp for $100 million. after depp's lawyer called her allegations a hoax. yet some of the most dramatic moments when the two took the stand themselves. >> i am harassed, humiliated, threatened every single day. >> i have spoken up for what i've been carrying on my back reluctantly for six years. >> reporter: now, jury deliberations will begin tuesday morning after the holiday weekend. now, this is only a group of seven jurors, and they'll have to weigh whether anyone here is entitled to damages. janai. >> all right, ike, thank you. and joining us now is david glass, a family law attorney and
7:34 am
former psychologist who has been following this case closely. david, thank you so much for joining us. johnny depp was back on the stand this week. who do you think that that benefited most, him or amber heard? >> in truth i don't think it benefited either of them. i think it was a move by johnny depp so he'd have one more chance to address his audience, his adoring fans and say that he's been suffering for six years. but his testimony really didn't add or detract from his case or from amber heard's case. >> and, david, what do juries have to consider when deliberating a defamation suit? >> well, the juries are given very specific instructions. they have a checklist they have to go through. first of all, there has to be a bad statement made about someone that was false. it has to have been made with actual malice and then the hardest part is showing that the person who the statement was made about was damaged financially and connecting that one little statement to having their career ruined, that's the hardest part of a defamation
7:35 am
case. >> david, that's what's so interesting about the case. we heard so much of accusations of abuse on both sides, but that really was kind of beside the point of the defamation suit. >> it was. both of these parties went far afield from what the defamation case is all about. on one hand amber heard said that she was the victim of abuse. on the other hand, johnny depp's attorney said that her claims of abuse were a hoax. and beyond that, all of the mud that was thrown against the wall and landed on each of these parties really was aside from the point. >> and real quick, david, what are the options for the jury and how do you think it'll go? >> the options for the jury are three. first, they could find for johnny depp that he was defamed and hurt. they could find for amber and find that she was defamed and hurt, but most likely what the jury is going to do is going to send both of these parties home with nothing and saying, a pox on both of your houses. >> and it looks like if that is the case that no one wins in this. david glass, thank you so much for being with us.
7:36 am
we do want to turn for another check of the weather. back to danielle breezy from our nashville station wkrn. but in orlando for us this morning and we're talking about the heat, good morning, danielle. >> oh, we are talking about the heat. unfortunately, whit, it will be heating up this week and we want to talk about the critical fire danger. we have fire weather watches, fire weather warnings in effect for new mexico and across the desert southwest. now, the reason for this, we've got low humidity plus gusty winds and we could have gusts in excess of 40 miles an hour in flagstaff, arizona. i mean, we are talking about breezy if not windy conditions out there but talking about the summerlike pattern shaping up for the eastern half of the country. we have triple digit heat expected from texas to oklahoma to kansas, dodge city could set a new record and on memorial day, everyone is heating up. we're going to be in the upper 80s to near 90 from d.c. all the way up to boston. that's a look at what's ha lisa:
