>> loss for the people of japan. >> and with gun violence front and center here in the united states, we should point out incidents like this one are extremely rare in japan. only ten reported last year. that left just one person dead. for the latest this morning, we're going to go to nbc's janis mackey frayer. she's been covering this shooting all night long. joins us now. hi, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. former japanese prime minister shinzo abe died after being shot in the chest and neck. japan's longest-serving prime minister, his death is profoundly shocking for the country where gun violence is almost nonexistence. the assassination all captured on video. a warning, it is disturbing. this morning a shocking attack with ripple effects across the world. former japanese prime minister
shinzo abe shot while giving a speech in western japan. video footage from nhk capturing the moment it happened. two shots hitting abe in the chest and neck. another angle showing smoke billowing. abe was airlifted to hospital with no vital signs. doctors say they tried resuscitating but abe passed away at 4:03 a.m. eastern time, profoundly rocking a country unaccustomed to gun violence. the suspected gunman was tackled by abe's secret service detail. police named him as 41 yamagami tetsuya and seized what they described as a homemade shotgun. the suspect told investigators he was not motivated by political beliefs but a dissatisfaction toward abe. gun violence is exceptionally rare in japan, its gun laws are
the most stringent in the world. though some guns are allowed for hunting, very few people go through the process of getting one. a person needs to pass through 12 steps including a gun safety class, a written exam, doctor's signoff and extensive background check to buy and own a firearm. abe is also a political giant. the longest-serving leader in japan's history with important ties to several u.s. presidents. he stepped down in 2020 citing health reasons. >> he is still one of the most visible if not the most visible japanese politician. there was a reason that he was out on the campaign trail. >> reporter: the u.s. among other leaders expressing condolences and alarm. >> profoundly disturbing. also such a strong personal loss for so many people. >> reporter: shinzo abe was a political giant, the country's longest serving prime minister and in many ways still prominent after stepping down.
he was credited with pulling up the economy. meeting with dozens of world leaders, golfing with president trump and taking president obama to hiroshima. president biden said he's stunned, outraged and deeply saddened calling abe's death a tragedy for japan and all who knew him. meanwhile, police say the suspect has admitted to the crime and they've confiscated several homemade guns from him. as how a gunman could get past abe's security, police say they're investigating that. people for now are laying flowers at the scene and, again, that abe's death was by gun violence will have a keep impact. >> janis mackey fr you. and this morning we're hearing more about the heroic actions of first responders and everyday people as one member of the suspect's family apologizes. maggie vespa is live for us.
good morning to you. >> reporter: yeah, craig, good morning. the police officers and the firefighters here in highland park were marching in the parade, they were there when the shooting started. this morning we're hearing from them. as you said, we're hearing from the suspect's family who has a message for a community shattered by violence. >> we're just sorry. we're sorry. we're very sorry. >> reporter: this morning an apology to the victims and their families in highland park. the suspected shooter's uncle who lives with his nephew minutes from the scene of the july 4th massacre saying he was shocked when he heard the news. >> i couldn't believe it. very hurt. no sleep. my whole life changed. >> reporter: also in that home, the suspect's dad who told the "new york post" that back in 2020 he sponsored his son's application for a firearm owner's identification card which authorities say the
suspect used to buy five weapons, including the one used in the shooting and this one found in his car. noting his son passed multiple background checks, the father insisting, i didn't do anything wrong. >> for this to happen here, you know, it hurts all of our officers. >> reporter: meanwhile, the tragedy, seven dead, dozens injured, weighs on first responders. >> people have said they immediately saw first responders run in the direction of the danger. >> it's not unexpected for my officers and firefighters. i absolutely expected that of them. >> reporter: and this morning, crushing stories of survival. father and son tom and morgan brooks ran to find and help the injured when they noticed something under a body. >> i told them, there's a child under him. dad, there's a child under him, we got to get him. >> reporter: it was 2-year-old aiden mccarthy. his father gunned down lying on
top of him. >> he said shots, shots. he would say mom shot, dad shot? he just kept on saying that. >> reporter: he was saying mom shot, dad shot. >> he was. he kept on saying shots. >> reporter: kevin and irina among the seven killed. the father clearly gave his life to save his son. >> we were talking to kevin. we were saying, your son is going to be all right. everything is all right. you're a hero. we kept on talking to him pretty much to the end. >> reporter: aiden mccarthy's story touching so many. he's reportedly with his grandparents and loved ones started the gofundme in his name. it's now topped $3 million. >> so many stories of heroism from that day. maggie vespa, thank you. the looming change of power in the uk. embattled british prime minister boris johnson is set to step
down making the race to replace him on. keir simmons has been covering this story for us. he's live in london with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. the morning after the day before and britain's so crucial to president biden's alliance against president putin has a thumping headache. prime minister's long good-bye leaves the united in a state of paralysis. the "daily mail" says, what the hell have they done? >> reporter: new pictures of boris johnson embracing his wife and children inside downing street before walking out for a history-making speech. >> i'm immensely proud of the achievements of this government from getting brexit done to settling our relations with the continent for over half a century. >> reporter: wife kari holding their baby while watching. america's closest alley
descending into uncertainty. president biden saying u.s./uk relations remain strong, but his statement barely conceding his strained relationship with boris johnson, not mentioning the prime minister by name. the kremlin saying it hoped britain would choose a more professional prime minister. while president zelenskyy offering sympathy from all ukrainians. adding to the political turmoil, the list of potential candidates to replace johnson is long and growing, but a front-runner reassuring britain's support for ukraine will not weaken. >> the political system is supportive of what we're doing in ukraine. i don't expect that to finish at all. >> reporter: britain's international reputation not enhanced by boris johnson's reluctant departure. even his openly bitter resignation speech did not include the word "resign". >> it's painful not to be able
to see so many ideas and projects myself. >> reporter: close by, crowds hoping he'll be out soon. but british newspaper reports say he may want to hold a wedding party with his new wife at the prime minister's country residence. that news fueling calls for him to go now, not wait until a new leader is elected. more uncertainty for an already unstable europe. and there is some unhappiness amongst some people over president biden's message yesterday not mentioning boris johnson. one former adviser to boris johnson told me we would expect more from a close ally. i think it underscores the tensions just beneath that alliance that president biden has built over ukraine. hoda? >> keir simmons for us live at 10 downing street, thank you. now to the new developments in the case of brittney griner
who pled guilty to drug charges in a russian court. griner has been in jail there since february. so what does this guilty plea mean for her sentence and does it pave the way for a prisoner swap? andrea mitchell has been following this story. good morning to you. >> good morning. brittney griner back in her russian jail cell today after pleading guilty to drug smuggling charges during the second day of her trial. her lawyers hope that showing contrition might bring her trial to conclusion by august instead of months later. the 6'9" center for the phoenix language she doesn't know. now saying she accidentally included vape cartridges containing cannabis oil in her luggage. it could lead to a ten-year sentence. >> is there hope that this could shorten the sentence, get her
some leniency or motivate them to begin negotiating. >> seeing that there was a plea does make us hopeful that this process will continue to move forward. >> reporter: facing almost certain conviction after a trial, the admission could get the trial over sooner, since russian officials say they won't talk about a prisoner swap until the trial is over. russian state media say the kremlin wants to get back a russian arms dealer, serving a 25-year sentence in the u.s. experts say if the president gives up boot for griner, he should also demand the release of paul whelan, an american businessman falsely convicted of spying in a russian prison labor camp since 2018. >> our criminal system, justice system, fbi, they don't like to do this, but we've done it in the past. >> reporter: griner is getting support from across america and even at the medal of freedom
ceremony, megan rapinoe. a silent but elegant gesture. the initials bg embroidered in white silk. today britney's wife will join the reverend al sharpton in chicago, just to keep pressure up on the white house. craig? >> andrea mitchell for us this morning. thank you. the white house medal of freedom ceremony was yesterday honoring 16 americans with the nation's highest civilian honor. they include trail blazing athletes, civil rights icons and ordinary americans who have shown extraordinary courage in difficult times. peter alexander has the details of this. hey, peter, good morning. >> good morning to you. the medal of freedom is not won, it's earned. and these honorees have made an enormous impact in their lifetimes in politics, sports,
religion, the military, a diverse and remarkable group that president biden represents the soul of america. >> thank you, all, very much and to -- >> reporter: at the white house celebrating a lineup of legends. >> this is america. >> reporter: the most decorated u.s. gymnast of all times, simone biles adding to her medal count. at 25, becoming the youngest recipient of the presidential medal of freedom. the superstar honored for how she found balance as an advocate for sexual assault victims and gymnastics. megan rapinoe recognized for achieving another goal -- >> equal pay for women. >> reporter: the president hailing icons of the labor movement and of civil rights. also honored, former congresswoman gabby gifford severely wounded after being shot? 2011. now finding her voice to stop gun violence.

in japan, still a prominent figure after stepping down. he met with dozens of world leaders including many u.s. presidents. fumio kishida, the current japanese prime minister just spoke. he had tears in his eyes describing the attack as barbaric and despicable. he added, quote, i just have no words. abe's death sending shockwaves around the world. hoda? >> janis mackey frayer for us on this breaking story. thank you. two weeks after the supreme court overturned roe v. wade, president biden will sign an executive order today in an attempt to safeguard access to abortion and other reproductive health care. peter alexander tells us how the order plans to achieve those goals. peter, what do we know? >> reporter: good morning. president biden has been under pressure from abortion rights
