abc's zachary kiesch is in aurora, illinois, with the latest. good morning, zachary. >> reporter: eva, it all went down inside this valve plant behind me. according to law enforcement it started when the shooter, a longtime employee, was told he was being fired in response pulling out a pistol. this morning, workers at this illinois warehouse and the first responders who came to their rescue are still reeling. six are dead including the shooter. several more were injured. >> aurora has an active shooter situation. one officer is reported down at this time. active shots being fired. >> reporter: at around 1:30 friday the sound of gunfire pierced the calm of an otherwise typical workweek at the henry pratt warehouse in aurora. >> suddenly i heard the gunshots really loud. it sounded like a machine gun, you can say. >> reporter: police arrived within minutes and, despite the danger, immediately ran towards the oncoming bullets. >> original reports indicated he was shooting from a window. >> reporter: authorities chased tiorring him killingthe nearly
him but not before multiple officers were wounded. >> all of the officers have been transported to area hospitals for treatment for apparent nonlife-threatening injuries. >> reporter: the disruption and chaos locked down nearby schools. >> there's cops from different cities that you wouldn't even think that would be here. it's scary. >> reporter: president trump briefed while flying on air force one tweeting, great job by law enforcement in aurora, illinois. heartfelt condolences to all the victims and their families. america is with you. authorities have not released the victims' names but say they believe all were male employees. police say the suspect, 45-year-old gary martin, was also an employee and was being fired friday. martin's home in aurora has been searched, but police say they haven't found anything suspicious. his neighbors telling abc news that martin was friendly. >> i'm stunned, shocked. i can't wrap my brain around it just yet.
you think you know people and you don't. >> reporter: the tragedy that happened here all too common. now, the parent company, mueller water products, say they are shocked and saddened at what happened here. we're expecting to hear a little bit more today about these victims and if there was any connection to this shooter. dan, eva. >> zachary, thank you so much. not far from aurora in chicago this morning, there are new developments in another case, the alleged attack on "empire" star jussie smollett. >> police have now released two men who were arrested and questioned about that incident. abc's erielle reshef joins us now with the latest. good morning, erielle. >> reporter: good morning to you, eva. it's a major twist in this investigation. police tell abc news they have released the only two persons of interest so far identified in this case after new evidence surfaced during their interrogation. this morning, chicago police confirming the men in this
shadowy surveillance image are no longer considered suspects in the alleged attack on "empire" actor jussie smollett. the two taken into custody after landing at o'hare airport from nigeria questioned and later released as police say new evidence came to light. >> new evidence that was brought to their attention. obviously i had it. obviously my clients had it but i think it took a matter of coordination. >> reporter: authorities say the pair, u.s. citizens of nigerian descent, have a relationship with smollett. at least one of them appearing astin extra on "empire." investigators raiding the men's home taking shoes, electronic devices and other items that could be related to the case. their release coming weeks after smollett reported he was targeted by two men in a violent homophobic assault in a chicago alley. smollett telling our robin roberts earlier this week he was sure the people in the video were his attackers. >> there is no doubt in your mind what motivated this attack? >> i could only go off of their
words. i mean, who says [ bleep ], "empire," [ bleep ], this maga country, ties a noose around your neck and pours bleach on you. >> reporter: the actor lambasting those casting doubt on his account. >> i'm pissed off. it's like, you know, at first it was a thing of like, listen, if i tell the truth, then that's it because it's the truth. >> reporter: admitting he refused to give up his phone to investigators. >> they wanted me to give my phone to the tech for three to four hours. i'm sorry, but i'm not going to do that. >> why? >> because i have private pictures and videos and numbers. >> reporter: but stressing emphatically he's been cooperating with police. now, the attorney for the two men says they're baffled by their lengthy interrogation and have maintained their innocence throughout.
police say detectives have additional investigative work to complete. so many people interested in this case, so we're waiting to hear. >> a lot of people eager for ielle,ha we want to turn now politics. the special counsel's office now supporting a hefty prison sentence for former trump campaign chairman paul manafort. abc's stephanie ramos is in washington with what manafort could be facing now. stephanie, good morning. >> reporter: hey, whit, good morning. in a 27-page sentencing memo filed overnight, special counsel robert mueller's office says paul manafort, the president's former campaign chairman, deserves up to 24 years in prison for his financial crimes which he was convicted of last summer in virginia. manafort was convicted of bank fraud, tax fraud and one count of failure to disclose a foreign bank. manafort's sentencing in virginia has now been put on hold until attorneys in d.c. figure out whether manafort violated the terms of his plea deal by intentionally lying to authorities.
now, in the memo mueller's office calls manafort's actions brazen and bold and that his age should not be considered when deciding on a sentence. mueller's office did not, however, suggest a prison term for manafort. now, keep in mind this comes after some very long meetings between manafort and the special counsel's team the last few weeks. manafort just this friday agreeing to cooperate with mueller and his russia investigation, which could get him a lesser prison sentence. guys, back to you. >> stephanie, thank you. and there is also news this morning involving another associate of the president who has become entangled in the russia probe. roger stone is now facing a gag order from a federal judge. the longtime trump confidant is now limited in what he can say in public about his case. the judge worrying aloud that stone's public statements could bias a jury. stone is facing seven criminal charges. he is accused of lying to congress, obstruction of justice and witness tampering. the other big political headline this morning, president trump signing legislation to
fund the government and avoid a shutdown but also declaring a national emergency in order to fund his border wall. >> that emergency declaration is now, though, facing threats of multiple lawsuits as well as legislative challenges, and abc's white house correspondent tara palmeri is in west palm beach where the president is spending the weekend. tara, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan. the white house made this announcement anticipating the legal fights ahead. now the question is how long will it take for them to win this so they can access money to actually build the wall? after publicly considering it for weeks, the president declaring a national emergency at the southern border. >> we're talking about an invasion of our country. >> reporter: from the rose garden president trump downplaying what many lawmakers are calling an overreach of executive power. >> it gave the presidents the power. there's rarely been a problem. they sign it. nobody cares. >> reporter: just weeks after the longest government shutdown in history and with another one
looming, congress passed a spending bill thursday granting only $1.4 billion for border barriers, far below the president's demand of $5.6 billion for a wall along the mexican border. >> i got 1.4 billion, but i'm not happy with it. >> reporter: now trump bypassing congress to tap into up to $8 billion. 3.6 billion will come from the pentagon, another 2.5 billion from the department of defense and 600 million from the treasury department. all combined with the additional $1.37 billion allotted from the spending bill. even before his announcement the president facing bipartisan backlash. in court the administration will have to prove this is a real emergency. >> in the inevitable legal challenges to this declaration, a lot of that conduct and those words may come back to bite the president. >> reporter: something many say is an uphill battle after trump seemed to take the urgency out of the emergency. >> i didn't need to do this, but i'd rather do it much faster. >> reporter: it's an admission
that's already being cited in legal challenges from the aclu and public citizen. the state of california also announcing that it's suing the administration. >> he may win, he may lose. he may be challenged in a few different venues and face different results but the big question, of course, is what will happen when it reaches the supreme court as it almost inevitably will. >> reporter: just hours after the emergency was declared, the house judiciary committee announced it plans to investigate how the decision was made. they want to call the players involved including the white house counsel to capitol hill to testify. dan. >> tara, thank you. let's go now to the border state of texas where we find abc news chief political analyst matthew dowd. matthew, good morning. bottom line, as we sit here this morning, is the wall more or less likely to be built given what the president just did? >> well, first the campaign promise that donald trump had which was he'll build the wall and mexico would pay for it has already been broken so that part is never, as we know, is never going to happen. i think the president constantly gets in his own way on these
things. part of the border wall or part of the barriers will get built because he was appropriated money to do just that. so part of it will get built, and there's a real question he could even spend the money that's been appropriated already to build those parts in texas and other states. but i think his sort of grand dream of a border wall stretching from sea to sea is not possible. >> people have been worrying on both sides of the aisle, democrats and republicans, worrying aloud about the precedent, the sort of knock-on consequences of the president declaring a national emergency in order to build this wall, which some people say it's not actually an emergency. what are your concerns as you look at this? >> well, i think sort of the establishment of an imperial presidency and the abdication of the authority by the article 1 branch, the legislative branch of the constitution, has been a series of small steps for the past 35 years through republican presidents and democratic presidents. this is a huge step in the
abdication of that responsibility by the house -- by the congress, and so i think this president is going to be under constitutional restraint and maybe we finally have a congress, at least the house of representatives will take steps back to retake the article 1 power they've had because this is the ultimate power of congress which is the appropriation power and this case of what the president has done seems to be in direct conflict for that appropriation power. >> yeah, it was interesting to see senate majority leader mitch mcconnell supporting the president on this, but let me move on now to a different story. we were just talking before we got into the border wall fight about these new developments in the russia probe. we're seeing judges cracking down on both roger stone and paul manafort. both close associates of the president. as you watch this news play out, do you think this spells any trouble for the president himself or is it unrelated? >> i think the whole thing spells trouble for the president. i mean, we're in a situation where if you just look at what
we know thus far, there's been a culture of corruption. there's been illegal activities and there's been a culture of dishonesty through the whole thing but through all the indictments, all of the prosecutions, all of the convictions thus far of people very close to the president so now the president faces two things. he faces a mueller report. in the aftermath of what we already know about his close associates he faces a mueller report that will come up we think this year, and he faces the southern district of new york which is investigating various parts of his empire, various parts of his foundation, his businesses and all that, so i think the president and other people around the president should continue to be very concerned, but let me reiterate. we've already established there's been this culture around the president of people that were willing to break the law and lie about it. that's already been established. people very close to the president. >> matthew dowd, we appreciate you chiming in from texas this morning. have a great rest of your weekend. >> you too. thank you. >> all right, matt, thanks. we do want to get now to the
breaking news overnight from the vatican. >> pope francis defrocking former cardinal theodore mccarrick who once served as the archbishop of washington. abc's julia macfarlane joins us from our london bureau. she has the latest. julia. >> reporter: good morning, eva. this is a historic move by the church. a statement from the vatican today says pope francis is expelling the former cardinal theodore mccarrick, the former archbishop of washington, d.c. stripping him of all priestly identity and privileges. now, it's not the first time the church has done this, but it does appear to be the first time a church leader has faced this punishment. this follows an investigation by the church which finds mccarrick guilty of sexually abusing minors and adults many decades ago. mccarrick won't face any criminal charges because the alleged crimes were committed so long ago that the statute of limitations has expired. the revelations also that there were financial settlements in at least two cases involving mccarrick has led to accusations
of a cover-up by the church. in a statement last year mccarrick said he had no recollection of the allegations and maintains his innocence. eva. >> all right, thanks, julia. a legal victory for colin kaepernick. the former 49ers quarterback and panthers safety eric reid settling their lawsuit with the nfl. the players had accused the league and its 32 teams of keeping them from playing for kneeling during the national anthem. kaepernick has not played since 2016. terms of that settlement remain confidential. >> let's talk weather now. slick roads and near whiteout conditions being blamed for a chain reaction pileup in the midwest. rob is on the story and the nasty weather hitting parts of this country this morning. rob, good morning to you. >> you know, dan, it doesn't take much. anywhere from 2 to 5 inches of snow fell in kansas city and points eastward across missouri leading to horrific scenes like this across major highways. interstate 70 as we'll see in this video, one car after another slamming right into each other. overnight this shocking video in missouri. the snow and ice causing a massive pileup on interstate 70.
>> there's nothing we can do. no. >> reporter: huge tractor trailers unable to stop. >> oh, my lord. >> reporter: then this car >> we got to get out. we got to get out. come on. we got to get out. >> reporter: drivers sitting helplessly in their cars as more vehicles pile up. >> there's nothing you can do. it's best for you to stay in the truck, man. >> reporter: other 18-wheeler sliding sideways to a stop. drivers finally getting out into the chaos scrambling to help those in need. >> hey, can this truck back up? >> yeah, yeah, please. >> can that truck back up? >> reporter: in all, 47 vehicles involved and one fatality. and it can happen so quickly. first responders eventually getting on the scene there. over 500 reports of wrecks across the state of missouri alone. all right. mning b mostly rain
through charlotte. we have another system that will be as it comes out of the rocky mountains and winter storm warnings posted for parts of the northern plains and winter weather advisories so the snow by tonight will be in sioux falls geting into omaha and sliding through minneapolis, chicago, a little sliver of snow by tomorrow morning and then expands east by tomorrow night in through detroit, buffalo, getting into albany, new york city monday morning, into boston by monday afternoon. a little bit of accumulation with this so it will mess with the monday morning commute for sure but shouldn't be a major accumulation but anywhere again between 2 to 4 inches of snow and what we saw with that interstate crash, it doesn't take much. good saturday morning. i'm lisa argen. this is a 1 on our storm impact scale. get set for more scattered downpours today. 10:00 todaer evions. fod tou withhe high tidminoring on coass and roadways. the accuweather seven-day forecast looking at more
scattered showers overnight tonight. this ends by midday tomorrow. then we're dry and a nice sunny presidents' day. it is indeed sweater weather for some areas of country. if you didn't watch last weekend whit and i shared a sweater together and won't do that any time soon. >> it's good to see my sweater half this morning. >> oh, my. >> it was a little awkward this morning after the whole thing. >> bad humor. bad humor. >> you know what -- >> good to see you, rob. >> -- let's go from a really good joke that you just told to a really good story. good morning, guys. some college students were ecstatic, surprised with having their tuition debt paid off thanks to a church. they're shocked when they found out all caught on camera. >> thank you so much. >> reporter: these college seniors just found out they'll graduate without a cent of debts of dollars worth. >> your account has been paid in fullman. you're cleared to graduate. on behalf of alfred street
baptist church, go do amazing things in the world and know we took care of your account for you. >> oh! >> reporter: the pastor and congregation of alfred street baptist church in alexandria, virginia, paid off $150,000 in debt to students they'd never met. the church called for a 21-day fast in january from food, social media and shopping using their cash instead as an offering. >> those 34 students ranged anywhere from $2,000 to $10,000 and we paid their debt off in full. >> i couldn't believe it. i'm the first kid in the family to go through the american public school system and the university system, so i'll be the first to graduate with acol >> reporter: reverend wesley t' joyso lphese students. >> my mom died my freshman year so i've been doing it by myself for awhile, so i'm just really grateful. thanks. >> oh, my goodness. what's also amazing is the impact this made on the
congregation. in fact, none of them knew where that money that they gave was going but when they watched the video like we just did they were overwhelmed. many of them were in tears. >> so 21 days no food? >> well, no, some people decided not to have food. some people fasted social media. i think they gave people the option as to what they wanted to fast, but the goal was to set themselves aside and to pray and to give that money to a great cause. >> whatever they fasted on, it's a beautiful thing they did. >> what a story, yeah. >> appreciate it. >> adrienne, thanks for bringing that to us, as well. coming up on "good morning america," we have new details about a possible motive in the case of a missing mom from colorado. did a custody battle figure into her disappearance? troubled trip. jennifer aniston, courteney cox and other big names reportedly on board a private jet with problem. the rocky start to a birthday bash. and why getting a good night sleep may be crucial for your heart health. we're probably not the right people to talk about that this morning. >> not at all. >> no.
