results and he blasted the hearing as a political witch hunt. emotions were high as more footage was shown from the riot. us capitol police officer, caroline edwards, who was knocked unconscious, described a war scene. >> and i saw friend with blood all over their faces. i was slipping in people's blood, you know. i was catching people as they fell. you know, i was-- it was-- carnage. it was chaos. >> reporter: documentarian nick quested also testified. he was embedded with the proud boys, describing a group of 200 to 300 members of the extremist group marching towards the capitol to scope it out well before the former president's speech. >> i was surprised at thee of the group, the anger and the profanity. >> hang mike pence! >> reporter: and when these chants rang out, a stunning revelation from vice chair liz cheney: >> the president responded with

this sentiment, "maybe our supporters have the right idea." >> reporter: she noted it was vice president mike pence who called for the national guard, not the president, and she offered this rebuke to her g.o.p. colleagues: >> there will come a day when donald trump is gone, but your dishonor will remain. >> reporter: president biden disagreed. >> it's the same forces that led january 6 remain at work today. >> reporter: the committee will hold three hearings next week focused on the former president's big lie, as well as his alleged efforts to pressure the justice department and his own vice president to overturn the election. cbs news has learned that trump's former acting attorney general jeffrey rosen is also expected to testify. norah. >> o'donnell: that will be interesting. nikole killion, thank you so much. well, today, we learned this, that 33 children at the robb elementary school in uvalde, texas waited for more than an
3:40 pm
hour before police moved in. and the police, they reportedly knew that some kids were still alive inside. cbs' omar villafranca tells us the school police chief's excuse for why his officers waited to confront the gunman. >> reporter: uvalde school police chief pete arredondo is teling his side of the story.wie texas tribune," arredondo revealed he decided to entertain school without his police radios because he believed they would slow him down. arredondo told the outlet, "one had a whip-like antenna that would hit him as a he ran. the other had a clip that arredondo knew would cause it to fall off his tactical belt during a long run. while he and his officers waited outside the barricaded classroom for more than an hour, students were making 911 calls from inside, begging the police to come in and help them. but arredondo told the "tribune" he was not aware of the 911 calls because he did not have his radio, and no one in the hallway relayed that information
3:41 pm
to him. and in a surprising revelation, arredondo said he didn't believe he was in charge of the scene. "i didn't issue any orders," arredondo said. "i called for assistance and asked for an extraction tool to open the door." we asked former dallas schools police chief craig miller about arredondo's decision not to bring his police radios inside. >> any reasonable police officer would know to take their police radio with them, and certainly to not have communications when you're going into the frey is problematic. >> reporter: and as for arredondo's claim of not knowing he was the on-scene commander? >> because chief arredondo has four stars on his collar, many of the officers who were there may have felt in their mind that he was in charge. >> reporter: as the questions around the response continue, so do the funerals for the victims. today, eva mireles, one of the teachers killed in the attack, was laid to rest. she was remembered for her bright smile. we learned that eva mireles and
3:42 pm
at least two students were taken by ambulance from the school and pronounced dead at the hospital. that means one of the biggest questions for investigators is whether students' and teachers' lives could have been saved had police gone into that room any sooner. norah. >> o'donnell: so difficult to think about that. omar villafranca, thank you. texas will remain under a dangerous heat wave through the weekend as triple-digit temperatures extend across much of the southwest, all the way to california. for the forecast let's bring in meteorologist mike bettes from our partners at the weather channel. hey there, mike. >> and good evening, norah. the extreme heat will shrew no e likely for some places like las vegas, back down into central texas. heat once again comes in on sunday, a place like austin a record-setting 102 degrees. we'll do 103 degrees in shreveport. on monday the heat expands in the midwest and sweet. i'm going to show you st. louis in particular.
3:43 pm
our forecast gets pretty extreme through next week in particular, starting this weekend but going through early next week, look at some of these number positive. we think at least three straight days of 100-degree heat. the thing to think about is is this-- norah all the way through next weekend we anticipate extreme heat all the way through the east coast. >> o'donnell: summer is here. thank you, mike bettes. now to the war in ukraine where officials today issued a new plea to the west for heavy weapons. they say up to 200 ukrainian soldiers are being killed every day, and russian forces are quickly grabbing territory along the strategically important black sea coast. cbs' chris livesay is there. >> reporter: it's here on the black sea coast where ukraine i. you could call this over-watch position a trip wire, one of the first lines of defense between the russian military and the city of odessa, protecting in part by american firepower. the u.s. has supplied ukraine

with more than 6500 javelins like this one. "they've been a game changer, striking 99% of their targets," says this soldier, code name jocker." but they're designed to take out tanks, not the russian fleet. to do that, ukraine is counting on advanced long-range missile systems on their way from the u.s. without them, coastal cities like mykolaiv are sitting ducks, says mayor oleksandr senkevych, who rushes us below a children's hospital during an air raid. >> they want to kill ukrainians, as many as they can. >> reporter: are you worried that this city could become the next mariupol? >> i hope not. >> reporter: mariupol, now notorious for its fierce resistance, eventually fell into russian hands. and with it, three foreign fighters, two from britain, one from morocco now sentenced to death by firing squad in a russian court. a provocation that's destined to backfire, says a former u.s.
3:45 pm
army medic and friend to of the british prisoners. >> i think it will invigorate people, more than anything. >> reporter: now, those soldiers can appeal their death sentence in what's widely seen as a sham trial. meanwhile, ukraine says it's now losing up to 200 of its soldiers every day, desperately awaiting the arrival of the advanced weaponry from the united states that's still weeksy away. norah. >> o'donnell: chris livesay, thank you. and still ahead on tonight's "cbs evening news," a swim ends in tragedy for two teenaged boys. we'll have the very latest. and the reward for a hero who risked his life to save a man on the train tracks. “shoot it?” suggests the scientists. so they shoot it. hmm... back to the miro board. dave says “feed it?” and dave feeds it.
