7:03 am
rockies for their sixth straight win. >> this is my first time to pitch on jackie robinson day, that was cool and finish the way we did, that made it even better for myself. >> that's about the only thing to smile about this morning. if you woke up thinking what in the world is going on in this country, we all did. think about this, we have the derek chauvin about to start their deliberations. we have the shooting of daunte wright. we have the very controversial shooting in chicago of the 13-year-old boy. and then you wake up and there's reports of another mass shooting. so i don't know, i woke up this morning going what's happening in our country? i'm sure you did too. but here we go again. our traditional greeting is good morning but there's really nothing good about this morning today. we woke up to the news of another mass shoot a country where mass shootings feel almost too commonplace. we cannot get used to this. today's tragedy is this, at least eight people are dead, many more injured after a gunman
7:04 am
opened fire late last night at a fedex facility. this one happens in indianapolis. police say it appeared the killer also took his own life. so far his motive remains a mystery. charlie demar from our chicago station wbbm is near the scene. charlie, it's been an agonizing night and agonizing is the word for the fedex workers' families, not knowing who survived or may be still fighting for their life. what are you hearing now? >> gayle, good morning. we're at a hotel being used as a reunification center for families. as you can imagine, it's extremely emotional overnight and into this morning as families are showing up to see if their loved ones are okay. just a few miles from where we are at the fedex facility, investigators are there. they've been there throughout the night trying to find out why this happened. >> we have an active shooter currently at fedex. >> reporter: the late-night shooting unfolded at the fedex facility near the indianapolis international airport. police say when they arrived,
7:05 am
they encountered the shooter who ultimately took his own life. p at the scene with injuries consistent to gunshot wounds. those eight were pronounced deceased here at the scene. >> reporter: at least four other victims were hospitalized with gunshot wounds. witnesses described a chaotic scene. >> i saw an assault rifle of some sort. i saw the clip, and he started firing. >> reporter: jeremiah miller was outside the facility about to start his second shift when he heard the gunfire. >> i hear six shots fired at once. you know, at a time. bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, b. >> my initial thought was don't die and escape. but then when i started seeing everybody roll up from midnight shift, i felt the need to help people. i felt the need to warn people. >> reporter: multiple bullet even struck this car in the parking lot, blowing out its
7:06 am
windows. after the shooting, facility workers were rushed into buses and taken to a nearby hotel to reunite with anxious loved ones. sherice grice wasn't able to get hold of her nephew raymond who was inside at the time of the shooting. >> bng them, but we don't know if he's okay or not. the hospital can't tell us nothing. >> reporter: now no police officers were injured. investigators are still at the fedex facility combing through all the evidence as they will be for several hours trying to determine a motive. jeremiah, who you heard from, he says that fedex employees aren't allowed to bring their cell phones inside the facility. and he worries that may have preveted a call to authorities from getting there even sooper. fedex says that safety is their top priority a cooperating withie de mar in indianapolis. thank you. we're joined now by craig mccart, the deputy chief of criminal investigations for the
7:07 am
indianapolis police. have all the victims been identified? have the families been notified? >> so no, unfortunately we are still processing the crime scene. >> yeah. >> and part of that processing obviously is also identifying all of the victims. so we have not done that yet. we're working with families. we have a reunification center right now that's up and running at a nearby hotel. we have our victim assistance units there to assist in that process. but the crime scene processing is -- it takes time. it's lengthy, and certainly as parts of that we're going to get the victims identified as quickly as we can so we can get the families notified. they've certainly had some uncertain hours. so we're working as quickly as we can. >> i understand. do you know how many people were injured and what condition they're in at this moment? >> so the last i hear, we had four people who were taken from the scene with gunshot wounds.
7:08 am
another person who was transported from the scene with some other sort of wound, possibly from shrapnel. and i believe at this time all of those victims are stable. >> the shooter reportedly died by suicide. do we know anything about the shooter at this point, do we know anything about a possible motive for this? >> no. again, we're in the same boat kind of with him as we are with the victims because we have not finished processing the scene. we have not identified him. and obviously until we identify him, we can't really start digging into a motive or any -- anything like that too much. >> do we know what type of weapon he used? >> we believe that he had some sort of a rifle. >> was the shooter already arrived? m u ise're stillinoonfirm --ding was that
7:09 am
alreadyakis own life office entered the facility. >> uh-huh. what do you see happening now, deputy chief? how long do you think before we'll have our next update on this, and how much longer do you think you need to be processing the scene? >> well, again, with multiple victims like this and a crime scene, part of the crime scene was outdoors, part of it was indoors, so there's a lot of processing that needs to take place. that needs to be completed before we can really jump into the other part of the investigation which is looking into the suspect and looking into those possible moestives tt we spoke about earlier. we don't have an idea now. so more hours to complete ke that. and i don't expect to really have any more significant information until probably later this afternoon at the earliest. >> all right. deputy chief craig mccart with the indianapolis police department, thank you so much
7:10 am
for your time. >> thank you. there's also sorrow and new anger in chicago this morning over the deadly police shooting of a 13ear-dalvey cam video of the shooting yesterday prompting a nighttime protest. adam toledo was shot and killed last month by an officer responding to an apparent shooting. police say adam was holding a gun at the time. the family's lawyer denies that, however. the officer, eric stillman, is on administrative leave during the investigation. his lawyer calls the shooting tragic but said stillman was left with no other option. adriana diaz is in chicago for us. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, tony. there's still so many questions that need to be answered. just like in minnesota, weather protests are demanding responsibility in the death of george floyd, there's another name to their calls for an end
7:11 am
of police violence, and that is 13-year-old adam toledo. the images you're about to see are really hard to watch. yant t o o the --m theey are cile c these killers down at the police department? >> reporter: overnight,st in chicago were tense with demonstrators staring down police. still reeling from the body camera video released just hours earlier. late last month, officer eric stillman responded to reports of gunshots. a chase ensued as soon as he got on the scene, and 19 seconds after exiting his car -- >> stop, stop [ bleep ] now! show me your [ bleep ] hands -- >> reporter: he fired a single shot that struck 13-year-old adam toledo in the chest. the boy died at the scene. s, buddy. >> reporter: a wider angle of the incident appears to show toledo put his hand on one side of the wooden fence before
7:12 am
turning. the police released this blown-up image they say shows toledo with a gun. in body camera footage, a gun is seen on the ground. in a freeze frame when toledo was shot, both hands appear to be empty. toledo's mother spoke days after the shooting. >> they had a lot of options, but not kill him. they couldn't shoot his -- his leg, his arm, up in the air? i don't know. but not kill my baby. >> reporter: last night toledo's family attorney, adeena weiss, told us the boy was obeying orders when he was killed. >> everybody need to recognize that child was given a directive, he threed -- complied, surrendered, turned with his hands up, and then he was shot. >> reporter: what do you make of the freeze frame that the polic this is a gun in adam's right hand? >> i see a blurry image of something. but i can't tell you what is in his hand. they can't tell you what's in
7:13 am
his hand. at this point, we don't know what, if anything, was in that child's hand. and if i can't see it in the realtime video, which the officer was looking at him in realtime, how could everybody say that he had a gun in his hand? >> that officer had .8 second to determine if that weapon was still in his hand or not, period. >> reporter: but john catanzara, president of the chicago police union, said the officer was justified. >> we do not have to wait to be shot to respond. the officer had every reason to believe that that offender was turning and pointing the gun at him. >> reporter: that night toledo was with 21-year-old ruben roman who has been arrested. now police say the gunshots they were originally responding to were fired by roman. toledo's family attorney says adam was a good kid. he was a little timid. his family said he loved to play with one day becoming a police officer.
7:14 am
hank you. you're right. this is a very tough case. this happened at 2:40 in the morning. adam toledo is 13 years old, out with a 21-year-old. it does appear -- cops were responding to shots fired. let's start with that. they're going already sort of on heightened alert. he's running, running, running, that's true. and the lawyer's right, i can't tell if that's a gun either. but when you look at the video, that's clearly a gun that's on the -- behind the fence. it's also clear that he dropped something, and when you listen to what the police union said, he had less than a second -- the police officer, to judge. i think there are many cases here. i think it's a good time to remember that police are human beings, too. >> yes. >> and lately, you know, there's been a lot of vitriol against the police, i understand that, too. but i also have to say they're human, too, and he had less than a second to make a determination. >> he was also in an exposed position, open in an alley. >> yeah. there are a lot of questions in that case. closing arguments in the
7:15 am
derek chauvin trial will begin on monday. the former minneapolis police officer chose not to testify on his own behalf under the fifth amendment. now this is after testimony from dozens of prosecution witnesses and a much smaller number for the defense. jamie yuccas has more on the story from minneapolis. i will invoke my fifth amendment privilege today. >> reporter: for the first time since the trial began, derek chauvin spoke in court while the jury was not present. >> do you feel that your decision not to testify is a voluntary one on your behalf? >> yes, it is. >> reporter: it was chauvin's decision to not take the stand in his own defense. the defense rested. joe tamburino is a minneapolis criminal defense attorney, not associated with the case. do you think he maybe wanted to testify? >> i think he should have testified. you have to decide is this person going to be good on the stand. many people are not. >> reporter: then there was a stunning development that nearly led to a mistrial. the issue surrounded the defense expert testimony that carbon monoxide poisoning may have
7:16 am
contributed to george floyd's death. >> was mr. floyd's blood tested for carbon monoxide? >> i could not find a reference two it. >> reporter: it turns out the medical examiner had tested for it. the prosecution wanted to call become a pulmonologist to present those test results, but the judge said the testimony would be inadmissible at this stage of the trial. >> if he even hints that there are test results the jury has not heard about, it's going to be a mistrial, pure and simple. >> reporter: dr. martin tobin was allowed to testify carbon monoxide poisoning did not contribute to floyd's death. and with that, all testimony came to an end. now minneapolis city leaders are stepping up security in preparation for the chauvin verdict which could come as early as next week. national guard troops are already stationed in downtown minneapolis. and barriers were placed near the courthouse and the streets surrounding it. the mayor acknowledges with the chauvin trial happening so close to where duante wright was killed, the trauma of the community is palpable.
7:17 am
[ chants ] the mayor says the city put in several months of preparation and will b flexible and adaptable when it comes to protests by using state patrol deputies and other agencies. anthony? >> jamie, thank you. british officials say everything is ready for prince philip's royal funeral tomorrow at windsor castle outside london. the group of 30 family members will attend the service. prince william and prince har harry's role is getting extra attention. roxana saberi has more from windsor. >> reporter: from these soldiers rehearsing the route to this landrover personally designed by prince philip to carry his coffin, the prince had a hand in planning all the details of his final farewell. in the era of covid-19, only 30 guests, mostly close relatives, will attend the service inside st. george's chapel. they'll have to wear masks and socially distance with the queen seated alone.
7:18 am
still, royal correspondent roya nikkah said the duke will get the funeral he really wanted. >> smaller, intimate, no fuss, just like prince philip. >> reporter: there is an element he probably didn't plan. frikds in the family. -- friction in the family. just weeks after his grandson, prince harry, told oprah he felt trapped in his royal role -- >> trapped within the system. like the rest of my family are. >> reporter: he and his brother, prince william, will meet for the first time face to face in the funeral profession but separated by their cousin, peter phillips. >> i think peter phillips would always have been in the procession as the first grandson of the queen and prince philip. there's no doubt people will make more of the fact that he will separate them. >> what do you expect from the reunion of brothers? >> i think we can expect everyone including william and harry in the face of it to put on a united front, to put aside their differences to honor their grandfather.

>> reporter: blue origin's brent sherwood told us that's why the propulsion system is based on water, because ice at the moon's south pole could someday be converted into rocket fuel. >> both hydrogen and oxygen are available on the moon in the form of ice in the polar regions. and our vision is based on developing lunar resources in the future to make these systems reusable instead of bringing everything from earth. >> ignition -- >> reporter: elon musk's spacex proposes a lander based on its starship design. the company's testing it in south texas. >> we've had a successful soft touchdown on the landing pad. >> reporter: outside, an elevator-like system would lower astronauts to the surface. and then there's this approach by dynetics, based in huntsville, alabama. it's horizontal, low-slung layout, has the crew hatch eight feet above the ground. >> one of the most notable aspects of our design. we like to see that when neil

to bring you some of the stories that are the "talk of the table" this morning. gayle king, are you going first. >> okay. mine is about chadwick boseman. we lost him way too soon. he died in august, that's eight months ago, of colon cancer. and no one has forgotten him. so far he's won about every award possible. now we've got a very exclusive look at a new netflix special of where you see a lot of famous people that you know talking about clad will be bozeman. it auto -- chaz will be bozeman, called "portrait of an artist." >> in acting, i'll say it, most people want to be famous actors. when it comes to the real, real work, you see people start falling away. the only one or two people standing are the people who are
8:31 am
really hyper focused on the craft, on the process. that's chad. >> some people have a concentrated dose of life. it's like the old frozen orange juice that was in that little container, and you have to put a gallon of water in it to make it a quart of orangjue. mee that concentrated juice with no water in it. it's too strong, it's too good, it's too powerful. >> wow. >> denzel's analogy was so good. bravo to you, netflix. they put together this special. it's less than half an hour. and at one point viola takes out one of chadwick's scripts from one of his last movies with his notes. >> his notes? >> yes. she said for any actor, it's a sacred bible. then you get to see him speaking, talking about his craft. you get to see felicia rashad paying tribute where she said in a word he was just quite
8:32 am
excellent. it's very worth your time. it's coming out this weekend on netflix. >> i'm all in. >> so am i. >> really good. >> a true artist. >> yes. that's why they call it "portrait of an artist." your turn. >> my turn. i've got a report of a mysterious tree monster that caused some panic in krakow, poland. now, it comes from a -- an animal welfare society report that came up on facebook. an inspector with the animal welfare society there who said he got a panicked call from a local describing a mysterious creature that had been lurking in a tree for days. >> what is that? >> it's a -- a desperate voice. he said, what is it, maybe some sick bird of prey? i tried to guide the woman. her voice seems to be growing hysterical -- no, it's not a bird, she said. she thought it was an iguana. he wonders where would an iguana come from -- >> it's furry -- >> where would it be come from in a neighborhood in krakow? they go to the scene, inspectors -- >> this is good -- >> we look around and suddenly there it is. we have it. the brown creature sits on a
8:33 am
lilac branch, not moving. we look more closely, the poor man has no legs or head. then they realize this mysterious iguana turns out to be -- >> what? >> a croissant. >> no way. >> yes, indeed. >> no way. >> it is a croissant. a french pastry has caused this disturbance. >> that's a really big crois croissant, though. >> very large. the moral is, please people, be careful with your pastries. >> be very careful. >> you might frighten the neighbors. >> even patty put on her glasses to say, what is that? >> what is that? i imagine animal control with the big net. checking it out -- smelling it -- >> the other question is how did it get up there? >> somebody maybe was trying to feed a bird or hit a bird -- >> i have a feeling someone dropped it and went " snno!" >> so chadwick, what do you have? >> the big tanker trucks you see on the highway, you've probably cin m i the countryside, spill
8:34 am
landed in the river, and turned the entire river white. >> wow. >> that is a waterfall of milk. no greater point other than wow. >> i would have never thought it would turn the whole river white. >> me neither. >> amazing. apparently there was some risk to the fish. but the fish are okay. i don't know how they know, but they say the fish are okay. >> yeah. get yourself some frosted flakes and honey nut cheeriose. you got yourself a meal. >> i have different cereal there -- >> i do wonder what the fish thought, though. what's going on? >> that's a wow factor. >> all right. we're going to go back to the acms. the country duo brothers osbourne is up for two awards at sunday's academy of country music awards including album of the year for their third studio m to they'lsorm o sunday. we recently met up with the brothers in their hometown of deale, maryland, on the some of the biggest and most
8:35 am
transformational years of their lives. tj osborne talked about his decision to publicly come out as gay this past february, and john revealed for the first time that he experienced a mental health crisis in 2019 as the band was heading into the studio to work on its latest album. here's a clip of our conversation. >> i remember telling our manager at the time, i told him -- i can't go in the studio. i don't know what's wrong with me. i'm not happy. i'm depressed. my anxiety is through the roof. i can't sleep. my ears are ringing. >> you were reluctant to say anything? >> i was very reluctant to say anything. we grew up in a culture where if you fell and skinned your knee, get up, don't cry, walk it off. and you know, that allows you to be pers is -- diligent. >> were you worry about him? >> all the time. on stage i could tell he did not want to be there. that's when i was like, wow, we need to go home now. we ended up cancel something
8:36 am
dates. we canceled farm aid which was like a dream of ours to do. this was the most important thing in the world was to get john back in a healthy place. >> yeah. yeah. wow. it was -- it was -- i mean, john says he actually considered quitting country music which he never thought he would be in a position of doing. >> interesting he said his brhew >> yeah.as actually -- he was actually on stage at that moment with bonnie raitt, willy nelson, and allison krauss. like a dream show. he was in a really bad place. >> you never know what's going on with people. >> i'm glad to see you with people, talked to people -- >> i was so excited to go to deale, maryland, i can't tell you. >> i went to high school in that county. it is gorgeous. anne arundel county, maryland. >> very rural and on the water. it's stunning. and you can hear more from brothers osborne this sunday on "cbs sunday morning" and monday on "cbs this morning." >> i wonder if they say water like i do. w-o-u-d-e-r. >> the water in deale, maryland.

61%, the highest scientists have ever seen. and in san francisco with car traffic down, white crowned sparrows are singing new notes. researchers hope the bird will have their best mating season in years. earlier this week, we spoke with sir david and the documentary's executive producer, mike gunton about nature's remarkable rebound. sir david, i want to begin with you. i have a piece of paper that says you can be called only david. but you'll remain sir to me. >> yes. >> if you don't mind. you have long maintained that the wild, the wild on this planet will survive with us or without us. i guess during these lockdowns we kind of got proof. >> yes. not just survive, it does better. as you might imagine. less noise, less fume in the air, more space. what more do you want if you're a wild animal? so natural history of the creatures around us, they've flourished by and large this last year.
8:43 am
>> your crews also filmed humpback whales in alaska where the cruise industry was shut down. what was the impact, and what did you see with the whales? >> by and large, every animal has done better without us. and that's not surprising. in this instance, the whales were able to communicate again with their young and much better than in the past. so the young could hear the parents, some distance away, and the parents didn't mind going away, and that's why whales have been doing very much better. >> mike, this one's for you. i thought it was just me that the birds were singing louder and they were clearer. how did you know that this was happening? what did you see that made you think we need to capture it, and we need to capture it now? >> well, funnily enough the first thing was bird song. we were saying, hold on, this is sound scape, silence. we hear birds. if we move quickly, something interesting is happening here. it came actually initially from the sound of a bird song. but then it sent out this wave of exploration around the world.
8:44 am
>> mike, i have a thing for penguins. and you shot penguins walking empty streets in south africa. why that was important for the penguins? >> what happened there was those penguins do kind of co-habit with people under normal circumstances. and we thought that's fine. when lockdown happened, the beaches were empty. what was actually going on, the penguins went out to sea to catch food for their chicks. when they tried to come back during the day, the beach is full of people, they stayed out to sea. when everybody left, the penguins were coming in many, many times during the day. so their chicks were getting fed much more frequently. and the consequence of that is that they did better, some of them had twins, and some of them even had a second brood. it shows that we think we know what's going on in the natural world, but actually it was this situation, this lockdown that drew back -- almost like a veil and let us see what actually happens to the world when we don't tread so heavily on it. >> that's a great way to put it. sir david, back to you. i think the lesson from this
8:45 am
footage is that small changes in our behavior can have a huge impact on nature. that is the lesson. do you think we're learning it or have learned it as a planet? >> biologists have known that all the time. by and large, men, human beings are the last arrival biologically out of this, and to sort of edge our way into it by pushing animals aside. we've only got to stop for a few months and suddenly the natural world will benefit. >> sir david, has anybody told you you've got a great voice? i love listening to your -- a global of epic proportions is what you said in the piece. i could listen to you all day. well done, gentlemen. it's really beautifully done. >> yeah, sir david attenborough and mike, thank you. we appreciate it.
