6:01 am
an 18-year-old alleged gunman is being held without bail charged with murder in the killing of ten people with three more injured. a security guard inside the supermarket this morning being called a hero after he was fatally shot while trying to stop the attack. we will have the latest in a live report and get new details when we speak with the local district attorney just ahead. savannah guthrie's exclusive interview with darren harison who had no flight experience but successfully took over the controls and landed a plane in south florida after the pilot fell unconscious. we will hear the full story from the hero himself. let's begin in buffalo where an 18-year-old is being held without bond charged with killing ten people inside a grocery store filled with shoppers. police say the attack was motivated by race. good morning. what is the latest there.
6:02 am
>> reporter: this morning, the grocery store behind me, which became a killing field, is still a crime scene. there's a small memorial to the side here. an area allegedly targeted by someone specifically for a lot of black people. police say that this suspect showed up here in tactical gear and shattered what was a peaceful day. buffalo, new york, reeling after police say a gunman went on a racist grocery store rampage, shooting 13 people, killing ten. >> we are hurting, and we are seething as a community. >> reporter: all but two of the victims were african american. >> this was pure evil. it was straight up racially motivated hate crime. >> reporter: the aftermath unvarnished tragedy. first responders seen here next to a lifeless body. >> i saw a lot of people who
6:03 am
were in distress. they didn't know if their loved ones were okay. >> reporter: the attack began around 2:30 p.m. saturday. the suspect opening fire in the parking lot of a tops friendly markets. >> shots fired. >> reporter: then moving inside where a security guard fought back. that former buffalo police officer being called a hero. >> fired multiple shots. struck the suspect. because he had heavily armored plating on, that bullet had no round. the suspect engaged our retired officer, and he was ultimately shot and deceased at the scene. >> reporter: the attacker finally surrendered after putting a gun to his neck and then being persuaded by officers to drop it. >> yes, sir. i understand my charges. >> reporter: prosecutors say 18-year-old payton gendron from new york is charged with one count of murder in the first degree. authorities say he traveled hours to buffalo armed with an
6:04 am
assault weapon. three senior law enforcement sources tell nbc news it appears the n word was etched into one of multiple weapons recovered. he wrote a manifesto. it was briefly live streamed before it was removed. it's the fourth mass shooting at a u.s. grocery store since march 2021. the second rampage to shake new york in just over a month. >> i'm angry. i've seen violence from guns on the brooklyn subway and now in the streets of buffalo. it has to stop. >> reporter: tops friendly market sharing a statement saying in part, we are shocked and deeply saddened by this senseless act of violence and our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. yet another american community now grappling with the unconscionable. >> we can't let an evil person divide this community and an
6:05 am
evil person divide our country. >> reporter: a senior law enforcement official tells nbc news authorities are looking at the alleged manifesto filled with racist and anti-semitic tropes. that potential disturbing manifesto said he was bored during the start of the pandemic. >> at once tragic and infuriating. thank you very much. john flynn is the district attorney for buffalo's erie county. he charged him with first degree murder overnight. thank you for taking time with us this morning. the hearts of the country are with you this morning. there's rage and we saw it from the law enforcement officials about what happened there. let me start by asking you about motive. we are hearing about this manifesto online filled with racist and anti-semitic language. we are hearing about the gun. we have seen images with racist
6:06 am
language there. the sheriff was quick to say, this is a racially motivated hate crime, his words. what is the motive so far as you can tell this morning? >> willie, there's evidence that appears that we have ascertained right now that show that the motive potentially is race related. right now, he has been charged with murder in the first degree under new york state law where he has allegedly killed multiple people. there's also a provision in the murder in the first degree statute that talks about an act of terrorism. the terrorism mechanism and the hate crime mechanism in new york state law are not actually, per se, crimes of themselves. they are enhancers for lack of a better word. you have to have an underlying crime and then the hate crime aspect would be an enhancer.
6:07 am
it's the same with the terrorism charge. right now, he has been charged already with the highest count that we have in new york state, which is murder in the first degree. what we are looking at now are basically just potentially additional charges related to racial and terrorism that we could add on. >> was he known to police, mr. flynn? there's reporting out there that he had threatened to shoot up his high school not long ago. was he on the radar of law enforcement as far as you can know? >> well, he was not on the radar of law enforcement in buffalo. he was not on the radar that i know of to the fbi. it's my understanding that there was an alleged incident where he is from, which is in broome county, 3 1/2 hours from buffalo, there was some incident last year where he made some
6:08 am
threats. i'm aware of that. we are looking into that. we are going to obviously contact them and find out what exactly happened, which could kind of help our case in terms of his intent and what his thinking was when he came here to buffalo. you go, i must ask you about the security guard, the retired buffalo police officer who stood in the doorway, literally, and exchanged gunfire with this man who killed ten people. heroically probably saved lives. what can you tell us about him? >> he is a hero. we knew he was a hero before yesterday. he is a retired buffalo police officer who spent the better part of his life defending the citizens of buffalo. when he retired from the police department, he took a job as a security guard at this tops store. a tops store that i know well. down the street from the tops
6:09 am
store is a cigar shop i'm frequent. i'm familiar with this area and this tops store. he is a hero, like you said, willie. he used his weapon yesterday and exchanged gunfire, again, allegedly. the defendant was wearing tactical gear. he was not injured. again, as you said, he is a hero. has been a hero for a number of years in this community. >> without question. john flynn, who has charged the allege gunman with first degree murdered and may add hate crimes as we go along in this investigation. thank you very much for your time this morning, sir. please send our sympathies and love to your community this morning. we are all feeling for you. thank you. >> thank you, sir. president biden spoke out overnight about the shooting saying, quote, hate must have no safe harbor. nbc's josh letterman is traveling with the president. good morning.
6:10 am
>> reporter: good morning. president biden issuing a statement just before midnight praising law enforcement for their bravery in responding to this incident. the president calling it an incident of domestic terrorism and a hate crime. now the attorney general says federal prosecutors will investigate this as a hate crime. the shooting took place just a day after mr. biden warned about a potential summer surge in gun violence as he implored the use of leftover covid funds to plus up police departments. this morning, the president heading back to washington where he is going to be speaking at a memorial service for fallen police officers. he may have a chance at that event to address this crisis, which comes as president biden has been trying to show he is focused on addressing gun violence, even as gun violence advocacy groups criticize the president for not making this a
6:11 am
priority. they say that just since president biden was inaugurated, there have been more than 850 mass shootings in america. >> we will see if that focus sharpens. josh, thank you. thousands of people yesterday took to the streets across the country to march in support of abortion rights. the demonstrations come in response to the leak earlier this month of that draft opinion from the supreme court that suggests the court is prepared to overturn roe v. wade. a new nbc news poll out this morning shows stronger support than ever for abortion rights. chuck todd is nbc's political director and moderator of "meet the press." good morning. i know you will talk through the new polling this morning. we look to the midterms, perhaps, as josh said, the president will turn his focus as well to gun rights, inflation also on the table. what did you find in the poll? >> look, i think what you saw on some aspects, not a shock, with
6:12 am
the economy and it continues to hurt president biden. his numbers are now fallen to donald trump level. i say fallen because donald trump never improved his standing. it shows you that biden'sfallen. it shows you how polarizing he has become. we measured the abortion issue a number of ways. without this issue over roe v. wade being overturned, it would look like the republicans were basically on a straight line path to winning both the house and senate. all of a sudden what you see with abortion rights, you see one in five voters saying, this is a single issue vote for them. they mostly fall, 70%, on the choice side of this. you see suddenly democrats a lot more interested in midterms than two months ago by 13 points.
6:13 am
you see a leveling -- it's not a level playing field, a leveling of the playing field due to the issue. >> we may see that ruling coming up in weeks. chuck, thanks. we will look for more this morning on "meet the press" when chuck will have coverage of the tragedy in new york. kathy hochul will be a guest. mitch mcconnell led a congressional delegation on a surprise trip to ukraine saturday. >> reporter: good morning. on saturday, mitch mcconnell arriving here in kyiv with three other senior republican lawmakers, meeting with president zelenskyy as well as other ukrainian officials as the u.s. senate is trying to push through that massive $40 billion aid package that ukraine says it badly needs to win this war. during the visit, president
6:14 am
zelenskyy thanking them for their support. meanwhile, what's being seen as a massive morale boost here in ukraine, last night the ukrainian rap band won the eurovision song contrast with their song, which was originally written for the lead singer's mother, but has since become a war anthem of sorts. after their performance, the band thanking the audience for their support, calling for more support for ukraine as well as the devastated port city of mariupol. president zelenskyy congratulating the band saying that ukraine will host next year's eurovision song
6:15 am

if you can find an adaptor for "sunday today" gabby schwartz, nbc news >> i have a couple of those in a drawer somewhere this week, we highlight another life well lived. on june 19, 1984, the chicago bulls selected michael jordan with a third pick in the nba draft. basketball, culture and sneakers were about to change forever. a young designer named peter moore had joined nike a year earlier as the company's first brand creative director. moore and marketing director rob strasser saw in jordan a magneticage let. and a potentially transformational figure. they began to build a brand around him. beginning with a signature shoe. in april of 1985, nike released
6:46 am
the air jordan i. a now iconic red, white and black shoe designed by moore to match the bulls' team colors. commonplace now, the idea of making a shoe for an individual athlete was revolutionary. so, too, was the shoe itself. with the nba limiting its players at the time to black or white sneakers, the air jordan i was banned by the league after jordan wore a pair during an exhibition game, handing nike a game changing opportunity. >> fortunately, the nba can't stop you from wearing them. >> with its new outlaw status, the $65 shoe flew off the shelves. selling more than 1 million pairs in its first year. starting a tradition of a new air jordan every year since. moore designed the first air jordan logo, a winged basketball inspired by the airplane
6:47 am
captain's wings he saw pinned to the chest of a child during a flight. in 1987, moore designed a new logo. now ubiquitous around the world. the jump man is a silhouette of jordan leaping through the air with a basketball in his hand. inspired by the photograph in this famous poster. later that year, moore left nike going on to design the now famous three striped mountain logo for adidas and helping to turn around that company as its corrective director and president. peter moore, a visionary designer who teamed up with michael jordan to reshape popular culture with a sneaker died late last month in portland, oregon. portland, oregon. he was 78 ars we gave zzzquil pure zzzs restorative herbal sleep. to people who were tired of being tired. i've never slept like this before. i've never woken up like this before. crafted with clinically studied plant-based ingredients that work naturally with your body.
