new court documents. >> reporter: court records reveal that alec baldwin was told the gun was cold or without bullets or, in fact, the gun was loaded. the district attorney's office said it's unclear if charges will be filed in this case. but we're hearing from experts there's likely more than one person to blame for such a tragic accident. >> this morning horror and heartbreak. the film industry reeling from a tragic mistake. with more details from the tragic and deadly accident. alec baldwin seen in anguish thursday after firing a prop gun on the set of "rust" killing cinemaing to photographer, halyna hutchins and injuring director, joel souza. they grabbed a prop gun off the
cart, handed it todwin and yelled cold gun, unaware it was filled with live rounds halyna hutchins took a shot to the chest while joel souza was hit in the shoulder. the person in charge of the prop guns was hanna gutierrez reed. she's brand new to the role, following in her father's footsteps. >> i'm still learning. dad has taught me. i think loading blanks was scary to me. >> live ammunition is never to be used except for the very rare occasion with special conditions such as notification shall be made on the call sheet which did not appear to be the case for the movie "rust". >> so if it was a live round, where did it come from? how did it get into the gun? >> reporter: nbc learning from a source familiar with the matter, the prop gun has misfired on set
before, prompting some crew members to walk off the work site. movie productions writing they were not made aware of any safety on set but added they will be conducting an internal review of procedures. the 30 rock actor says he's cooperating with police and is in touch with hutch inns' husband writing our loss is enormous. >> and tributes are pouring in for halyna hutchins a rising star in the film community. and announcing a new scholarship in her name focused on helping female cinemaing to. fers. there's so many questions. what are the legal ramifications in a situation like this? >> reporter: one big question we're asking, how did the live
ammo end up on set. typically in a shooting death the person firing the gun is the primary wrong doer but experts are because baldwin was told the firearm was not loaded there may be an exception to that. but oftentimes on sets numerous people are involved in scenes like this, starting with the armorer who arranged the prop guns but how did that live ammo end up on set, still the big question. >> we'll have a lot more in our next half hour by the way about prop guns the obvious safety issues concerning them and how this incident could lead to changes in hollywood. here in washington, democrats in congress say they're edging closer to a deal on president biden's multi-trillion dollar domestic bill but they aren't quite there yet. the president conceding several of his key priorities are now out. nbc news white house correspondent kelly o'donnell
has more on where negotiations stand this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. we have seen deadlines come and go before but democrats are signaling they're close to getting the biden agenda done. house leadership told members to be prepared to vote on the bills that includes the infrastructure, climate and the care economy this week as the white house tries to build momentum to the finish line. a campaign style push from the vice president friday. >> let's get to work. let's pass our build back better agenda. let us build an economy that works for working families. >> reporter: at stake, the president's multi-trillion dollar plans for infrastructure. climate and social programs. >> i do think i'll get a deal. >> months of fierce disagreements among democrats led to scaled back proposals. free community college and expanding medicare services out. while paid family leave is in,
but time limited. >> it is down to four weeks. the reason it's down to four weeks they can't get 12 weeks. >> reporter: the president can't get agreement from kyrsten sinema to raise tax rates on corporations and wealthier americans forcing democrats to consider other ways to increase tax revenue. some progressive lawmakers are frustrated by moderate senators whose demands are shrinking the plans. >> senator kyrsten sinema, senator joe manchin, come to my district, visit with my folks. >> reporter: while republicans warn about higher taxes and inflation. >> the american people would be better off if this reckless tax and spending package never passed. >> reporter: congressional democrats and the white house say they are finalizing details of a deal reshaped by compromises. >> the alternative is not a larger package, it's nothing. so his objective is to continue to press forward, to bring the
parties together to get a historic package done. >> reporter: obviously the white house has been eager to get this done for a long time but there's now an external kind of time pressure. president biden is headed to europe later this coming week and part of that international conference deals with climate. so the president has told democrats it would be a value to the u.s. to have leadership on climate based on action here at home with legislation. peter, kristen. >> kelly o'donnell at the white house. thank you. anna palmer is the cofounder and ceo of punch bowl news and nbc news contributor. we want to dive in. let's start where kelly left off. members of congress on friday saying they're close to getting a deal. how close are they and how much pressure is there given that president biden is headed overseas next week?
>> as you know, there's oftentimes the devil is in the details so there was good momentum this week with speaker pelosi meeting with the president, side considerations happening, the speaker said they were 90% of the way there. but that last 10% is really where it's going to be difficult, how to pay for it, what are the health care provisions that are ending up in the final bill. they're moving towards something whether they get to the deadline that the president wants to have something done before he goes to glasgow is a big question. >> you're hearing the frustration amid top democrats, gavin newsom saying get something done here. what are the political consequences for democrats, for the president and for his party, including the fact that there was a big governors' race in virginia not far from us here in washington just a couple weeks away and the midterms less than about a year out. >> i don't think the political stakes could be higher for joe
biden. this is his signature legislation that he's trying to get done. it's his legacy of his first term really. there's a lot of nervousness among democrats, particularly moderates who see a tough hill they have to climb in the midterm election if they don't pass something on, certainly the bipartisan infrastructure package but also reconciliation, they feel they're shot and come back and winning in november is going to be a long shot. >> it's not done until everything is done. to the latest on the covid vaccine and new encouraging data for parents of young children. pfizer announcing its vaccine is 90% effective in children between the ages of 5 and 11. that news coming ahead of the review of an fda panel next week. kathy park is in new york with the latest on that. good morning. >> reporter: peter, good morning to you. yeah, if these covid vaccines
for kids clear the regulatory process, we could see shots in arms by early next month. but for millions of eligible adults, boosters are ready to be rolled out now at thousands of clinics, doctors' offices and pharmacies. this morning more progress in the fight against covid, health officials saying infections are going down and the number of people qualifying for boosters is going up. >> tens of millions of americans became eligible for enhanced protection from a vaccine booster shot. and nationwide cases and hospitalizations are down more than 50% since september. >> reporter: that welcome news coming on the same day that pfizer said its lower dose shots for kids appear to be more than o% effective against -- 90% effective against the virus. >> i'm waiting for the vaccine. >> reporter: health regulators will be weighing in over the next two weeks reviewing data that could soon clear pfizer's
vaccine for children ages 5 to 11. this week the biden administration outlined a strategy to vaccinate roughly 28 million children. the campaign includes more than 25,000 pediatricians and primary care providers to help with the rollout. late thursday, the cdc signed off on moderna boosters for 65 and older, adults with underlying health conditions and those at higher risk of catching the virus. for j&j, adults vaccinated for two months can get a booster too. >> all three covid-19 vaccines authorized in the united states are extraordinarily safe. as demonstrated by the over 410 million vaccine doses already given. >> reporter: pushing ahead on a path out of the pandemic with more tools in the fight. and more than 10 million americans have already received
their boosters so far. and according to the cdc, the number of people receiving boosters is out pacing the number of people receiving their first dose of the vaccine. kristen, peter. >> a lot of families paying close attention to this news. thanks very much. we want to turn to haiti where it's been a week since 17 missionaries, most of whom were american were kidnapped by a haitian gang. the situation is getting dire with the gang leader threatening to kill the missionaries if his demand is not met. katie beck is following this story. what's the latest this morning? >> reporter: good morning. unrest continues across the small country as demonstrations are bringing outrage to the streets. this while officials give us very little information about the status of those 16 americans and one canadian still waiting for a rescue. as conditions in haiti grow more violent and the consultant descends deeper into chaos and desperation, 17 lives continue to hang in the balance.
>> it is a tragic, profound crisis that we are trying to get out of. >> reporter: but getting out for the americans has a $1 million price tag for each one of the missionaries being held hostage, among them five children one as young as 8 months old. the christian aid ministries group abducted by a notorious haitian gang. kidnappers posting a chilling video thursday warning if demands aren't met, hostages will be shot. in the u.s. the ohio based faith group praying for its members trapped in haiti, offering prayer even for the gang members. >> we thank him that he is god and ask him to hear our prayers and bring our families home. >> reporter: the white house friday insisting rescue efforts are constant and ongoing but offering little detail for intervention. >> we are working around the
clock to bring people home. >> reporter: in haiti people protest fuel shortages, lawlessness and an economic collapse across the nation. faith groups across the u.s. organizing prayer chains for those doing good and now facing an awful situation. >> we believe that prayer has a tangible effect on other believers. so it's for them that they would have the courage to be faithful. >> reporter: now the state department says they've been working tirelessly on this case, but in situations like these it's best to not publicly detail the steps to bring individuals home. peter and kristen. >> thank you. with dylan away our friend simara has a check of the forecast. serious weather out west? >> yes. we are taking ourselves to the west coast. this is saturday, notice the time stamp, 8:00 p.m. tonight we have the onset of rain from washington into oregon right
into northern california. forward in time to sunday, the second round, the second part of the storm bringing some heavy rain to parts of northern california. we'll see the radar light up with orange, yellow, that's very heavy rainfall here. northern california areas up to seattle and northwestern washington could see 10 inches of rain or more. when we think about the wildfires out west this rain comes as a relief but there's a caveat with that. those fires left behind burn scars that in conjecture with the heavy rain could lead to mud slides and debris flowing. so 6 million people impacted in california. this storm is not only bringing rain but also snow. that's something we'll talk about later on in the show. let's look at the forecast across the country for now. while they're dealing with cold air, rain and snow out west we have a
and right now in san jose, 54 degrees, conditions are pretty calm overall. we are expecting though the chance for some spotty rain showers for the afternoon. temperatures will climb into the upper 60s for seasons, concord at 65. we'll get a couple of showers today but we are still on tap to get that big storm heading ento sunday. that'll bring several inches into the area. that live image you can see. that's your local forecast. kristen, peter, back to you. >> thanks very much. still to come after that accidental movie set shooting a look behind the scenes, just what is a prop gun and how can the industry prevent this from happening again? tributes pouring in for actor peter scolari, we'll look back on husband career. that's after this.
we are back on this saturday morning with the weekly download, our look back at the week's other big stories. >> the week began with the death of a four star general and trail blazing statesman. the nation mourned the death of secretary of state colin powell. he passed away at the age of 84 from covid-19 complications. >> general powell was scheduled to receive a booster shot last week before he fell ill according to a family spokesperson. >> powell had been battling cancer as well as parkinson's disease. guilty.
>> the gunman who killed 17 students and stuff in florida. >>ed a guilty plea. >> he shot everyone he saw and some he didn't see. >> now a jury will recommend whether cruz should receive life in prison or the death penalty. a miracle in texas when 21 people on board a jet that crashed survived. >> the faa said the jet tried to take off at 10:00 a.m. instead it rolled through a fence and caught fire. in a statement the spokesperson said we are extremely grateful there were no fatalities or serious injuries. we'll work with the ntsb and faa to ensure we are complying with all the requirements. prince william held a reception to thank those who helped him with a statue of his late mother.
>> the statute depicts princess diana as a humanitarian. >> prince harry staying in california this time after unveiling the statute with his brother this summer. some of the week's most intense moments caught on camera. a gas explosion at a hotel in northern china. hundreds of people on the spanish island of la palma were forced to evacuate. and wildlife rescuers released six sea birds back into the pacific, nearly a month after they were rescued from a massive oil spill off the coast of southern california. and an unexpected reunion for a high school football player in north carolina. his big brother who also plays football as a a cadet at west point came home for the first time since june and chose to
spend his short hours of leave to surprise his brother. >> a nice reunion. you have to go back to where we started the piece. which is colin powell. i think everyone so stunned by his passing this week and didn't realize he was suffering from some other illnesses but obviously ultimately it was covid-19. >> i think stunned but also just really grateful for his service. he was in many ways the ultimate soldier and statesman, acknowledging his failings and mistakes but having a difference in the lives he made in both parties and our country over the years. >> that's why you had presidents past and present coming out to remember him and honor him. still to come, believe it or not it's time to start your holiday shopping. retailers already offering black friday deals and why you should start sooner rather than later. >> beetles fans debated why the group broke up and paul mccartney is sharing the truth
good morning, thank you for joining us on this saturday on this october 23rd, i am cara clapper. i want to giver you a look as people are preparing for tomorrow's rain. we are anticipating a downpour. in san francisco, crews are delivering piles of sandbags. the department of emergency management will operate its emergency center this weekend. it will be ready to respond to storm related emergencies. city crew are cleaning out storm
drains. crews will once again put flood barriers in place to protect homes and businesses that commonly flood. pg&e says it's anticipating power outages from strong winds. we have a look at pg&e's 26 acres store jars in fremont. the utility says they'll bring crews in outside of the bay area to help restore power. you can track the storm in the palm of your hand, download your nbc bay area app, one of the things you can access is our nbc radar. you can zoom in your neighborhood and get a precise timeline when the rain will hit. it's a great tool. >> i prefer checking in with vianey arana for our micro climate forecast. >> the fact they are storm tracking prepping is perfect. we'll get a chance of spotty
showers here and there. 54 degrees in san jose. daytime highs will be in the 60s. i do want to show you aside from the temperatures how satellite radar is looking because we had that second storm that passed through late thursday night and into friday morning. we sort of had a break since. we got some instability that could bring a couple of spotty showers throughout today. this is the big storm we are monitoring. we are expecting several advisories including wind advisories to take effect starting tomorrow. we have our own mobile doppler radar. the afternoon and of course tomorrow. kira. >> thank you, we'll see you for the full forecast at 7:00. thank you. coming up at 7:00 on "today in the bay," halloween is just eight days away, bringing
before the president left, we talked policy, mainly the policy about the oval office and how i'm not allowed in it. >> we are back on this saturday morning october 23, 2021. and that is jason sue day cuss playing then vice president joe biden when he was a cast member on saturday night in 2013. the ted lasso star is back to host tonight with lots of people wondering will he play president biden? we'll have more ahead on pop start and peter may stay up for this one. >> anything for ted lasso.
our family is way deep into that one these days. we want to begin with a check of today's head lines. the u.s. killed a senior al qaeda leader in a drone strike two days after a military post was attacked in the southern part of that country. no civilians were injured in the strike. the supreme court is getting ready to hear challenges to texas' controversial abortion law. the law remains in place as the court hears the arguments on november 1st. the court will not weigh in on the constitutionality of the law and instead consider the unusual way the law is crafted and whether the justice department has the right to sue to block it. one half of the world series match up is set, the houston astros blanking the red sox 5-0 in game six of the american championship league series securing their spot in the
classic. this is the astro's third world series appearance in the last five seasons, last won it in 2017. they face either the atlanta braves or the los angeles dodgers. the braves lead the series 3-2. we want to look into the deadly shooting on a new mexico movie set. the weapon actor alec baldwin was holding was a so-called prop gun. so what exactly is a prop gun and why are they used on movie sets and tv sets. we have more from los angeles. >> reporter: good morning. with official documents stating a live round was inside the gun involved in this incident, the use of a blank round is no longer a theory yet it is important to understand the dangers of all real weapons which can be used as prop guns and do have the potential to fire any type of round with some in hollywood saying movies could look for an alternative.
this morning industry experts left stunned at revelations that alec baldwin was handed a loaded prop gun while filming the movie "rust". >> it's impossible to understand how a live round ended up in that game. impossible. >> experts say live rounds are rarely used, if ever, on set. >> we do not sanction live ammunition on set. so if indeed it was a live round, where did it come from? >> with details emerging, the use of prop guns in many hollywood is under scrutiny. the term prop gun is used for fake guns and real guns used on set. >> if we need something period specific it's altered in such a way you can't load the live round. >> reporter: more often prop guns are loaded with blank
rounds which are similar to live ammunition but they don't carry a bullet instead they're sealed with materials like plastic or paper. in 1984, actor john eric hacksham died from injuries caused by a blank round. and in 1993 actor brandon lee, the son of bruce lee was killed by a projectile shot from a prop gun while filming the crow. since thursday's incident there are new calls to end the use of prop guns. director craig so cyril said he used digital effects tweeting there is no reason to have guns loaded with blanks or anything on set anymore. now the tragic accident already with widespread impact on the industry. abc's "the rookie" is changing its policy to no longer allow live weapons on the show, adding, quote, any risk is too
much risk. >> i imagine the entire industry is looking at this closely. thank you for that. we want to check the weather again right now. there's some snow you're watching already? >> snow? >> same system hitting the west is bringing heavy rain along the coastline but also snow in the higher elevation. you see the blues and purples that's snow mixing in with the rain but that ramps up come sunday. so we are looking at a winter storm watch for the sierra nevada from lake tahoe down to lone pine. snow, two to three feet is possible in the sierra nevada so looking at the rain, the snow and that snow wouldn't be possible without cold air. look at these temperatures. we have this october chill setting up in the northwest and we'll get to that texas warmth in a moment. salt lake city, 8 degrees below the average, 53 there.
tahoe 46 in the higher elevations much colder. to texas, down towards areas like carlsbad, 89 degrees, am ril la 85. and the central portions of the country temperatures in the low to mid 80s to watch for. out east staying warm. we have she was talking about the snow in the sierra and in coming rain. we got a couple of spotty rain chances through the afternoon. mid-60s down to the south bay, 68 degrees in san jose, 63 in san francisco. here is a closer look heading into sunday, that's going to be our big rainmaker. it's on track to make its move late tonight, of night into sunday morning.

sales are starting. why are they starting so early? put this into context for us. >> you better get on it. we've talked about it every day. there are all sorts of supply chain delays, shortages across the board, that's causing shipping delays. if you need something quickly you need to be sure you're getting it now. stores realize they could end up with a log jam come later december so they're trying to offer promotions now to get people in stores and demand is up. seeing retail sales up 14% higher than where we were last year so the consumers want it as well as the stores. >> if you don't get a head start right now, what's the risk to waiting? >> listen, if you want something very, very specific, you don't want to wait. this year hanukkah is almost a month before christmas so you have that demand. if you have kids that want the hot items, the baby yoda, the nintendo switch, you want to be
sure you get on that now if you want something specific. it doesn't mean there won't be sales. there will be sales, promotions over the next month but you have to keep in mind just because something says sale doesn't mean it's suddenly a great deal. do your homework, especially for big ticket items, look at how they were priced last year because things are more expensive. >> that's a good tip. give us the bottom line here, steph, what is on sale now, and what's worth buying early if you think about it? >> the big box stores, they're always going to have the big black friday sales that's when you see the big electronics items, but the stores, they started it last year, they're doing it again this year. amazon starting their black friday deals already october 4th. target did it, they started it october 10th. lowe's october 28th. you have a little bit of time. walmart, november 3rd is when they start their deals. if you're a walmart plus customer you can start getting
those deals a few hours earlier. >> your shopping strategies, what are you recommending to folks? >> no -- every retail store i cover is going to complain as soon as they hear this come out of my mouth. buy less this year. all of us have spent the pandemic cleaning out our garages, attics, basements, do not buy a ton of stuff to fill those places up again. narrow the lists down and get creative, go crafty, go consignment, i'm wearing from shop repurpose. if you shop local also remember your mom and pop store have struggled to pay up for labor, they can't compete with the big box stores, it's hard to deal with the shipping delays. if they have things you like in their stores support that business. >> blues usually look good on me and i'm often a large, we'll talk about that later. >> extra large, peter. >> no doubt.
