it was really hard to breathe. >> reporter: last friday, 15-year-old gianna was randomly shot in the back with a pellet gun. she had extensive injuries, including a fractured rib. the pellet is still lodged in her body. doctors told her it was too risky to remove it. she spoke with our marianne favro from the hospital. >> it collapsed my lungs, it almost hit my heart, it broke my rib and caused internal bleeding. >> very serious injuries. even though it's a pellet gun, it can do serious damage. >> reporter: gianna wasn't the only victim. >> i can confirm we're investigating at least another two pellet shootings over the last several days. we don't know if they're connected yet. >> reporter: they all happened within a couple miles of each other. the first attack was on a 42-year-old woman in a wal-mart parking lot on stevens creek boulevard. less than an hour later, a nine-year-old girl was shot in

1:47 am
committee's second hearing today hammering home a single message. donald trump lost the 2020 election, and he knew it. >> as a result of his loss, decided to wage an attack on our democracy, and in doing so, lit the fuse that led to the horrific violence of january 6th. >> reporter: the committee relying on the taped testimony of top trump campaign staff who urged caution as election night returns showed joe biden winning. >> there are suggestions by, i believe it was mayor giuliani, to go and declare victory and say we won it outright. >> reporter: miller claiming giuliani was intoxicated, but his attorney says giuliani wasn't drinking at all. the trump campaign manager backing out of a live campaign appearance this morning after his wife went into the labor. instead, the committee played this video tape of him earlier saying he also disagreed with
