>> we are up and running. good morning to you. you are watching "fox & friends first" on this monday morning. ism abby huntsman. thank you for starting your dwek in a brand new way with us. >> riots in milwaukee. police are pelted with bricks and rocks. >> rich edson is live with brand new information just revealed from the officer's body camera. rich, good morning. >> good morning abby and heather. police are saying the body camera shows the shooting was justified. there was a turn in the fashion with the suspect who was shot and showing a gun. although there are plenty of
protestors calling for police to release the video. they say they have yet to finish their investigation and that's the reason they are giving for not releasing the video. all is quiet and calm here now. pretty remarkable considering a couple of hours ago there were rocks thrown on the street, shots of gunfire, reports of gunfire heard in this area. police say they took one person to the hospital after they were shot. another police officer to the hospital after he was hit by a rock. then considering just a couple of days ago this is the gas station that really all folks had seen on saturday evening after the shooting of sylville smith 23 years old. sheriff clark talked about that today. >> use of police force servings as an igniter.
young boys often grow up to be menaceful miss knits fa that the police haveh an aggressive fashion. the shooting occurred after a traffic stom whep where smith gt of the car. the shooting was warranted. but we will see how it goes later on today and if there are any more protest activities scheduled for lart on. it is sort of middle of the night as it is in new york. the street cleerns have been cleaning up debris. you hear a couple officers coming by. all cleanup crews. much quiter for now. we are going to talk a little bit more about this. the national guard ready and standing by after the angry mobs burned businesses to the ground following the deadly police shooting saturday night.
>> we want our community to know he had a gun in his hand. the police officer didn't know it at the time, but there were 23 rounds in that gun which means he had more rounds in his gun than the police officer had in his gun. >> we have homicide detective rod wheeler. >> first off, we heard there from what we know now based off the camera that was wion the police officer, was this shooting justifiabljustifiable? >> when you look at the fact that the police officers in uniform were chasing this guy. it initiated a traffic guy. they took off running. it was a suspect and another
individual in the car with him. they chased this guy with gun in hand and that's when the police officer shot him two times. it appears it was a good shooting in law enforcement a justifiable shooting. hopefully when the tape is released more of the community will be able to see the videotape. >> 23 rounds in his gun more than the police officer had in his gun. what about the national guard. they are on the ready and on stand by. >> thankfully they didn't have to deploy the national guard. they have been activated they are there at the ready. they didn't have to use them because the police department as well as the state police were able to keep the situation under control. i don't think going forward they have to deploy the national guard. >> what are sflirss told to do when they are face to face with someone with a gun on their
hand. they don't know how many bullets are in that gun. how are they told to respond in this type of situation? >> this is what they call a felony stop. we are chasing after an individual. we have every legal right to chase after this person. whenever a person turns toward a police officer or any other person and the a hand gun or any other weapon in their hand. we order them to drop the gun. if they fail to comply the officer has every legal right to use lethal force to bring it to a halt. >> in terms of buildings burning down it is interesting the chief mentioned the firefighters, they don't have the equipment available to go into an active shooting type of situation. they had to stand by and wait. >> we see that more often than not. we saw it in ferguson. the firefighters cannot be in the line of danger. any twooichl a situation in
milwaukee they would have been in the line of danger. there were people in the audience or people that were there that had hand guns and weapons. until the situation is under control, we don't send firefighters in until we know for sure we are going to be safe. >> kudos to the first responders over the weekend. all of the businesses are impacted by that. >> rod wheerl, thank you for being with us. we want to go to extreme weather. rescue efforts. >> four people dead with more than 20,000 people fulled to safety from the muddy, dirt brown water both in boats and helicopters as the governor warns it is not over. >> borders are going to continue to rise in many areas. so this is no time to let the guard down. >> some areas have been blasted with more than 20 inches of rain since friday. some towns completely cut off where you can only see rooftops.
one of the worst affected areas is baton rouge where 10,000 people are packed wall to wall in cheshelters. their homes were totally left under water. >> the torrential rains flooding hundreds of roads, stranding many for more than 24-hours, that's without food or water. >> president obama has declared the state a disaster area. >> maria molina joins us as they bring more rain. this remind me of when i looked at albany, georgia. they called it the 500 year flood. >> we are talking about the event oef the gulf coast. we have concerns not only a threat for additional heavy rain that brought more flooding but also river flooding. the problem with that, it takes several days for that water to
continue to recede. it could get worse as the areas continue to crest. i want to share with you how much rain the region picked up since tuesday. it is quite incredible. more than 24 inches across portions of louisiana. a pretty widespread area more than a foot of rain over southern mississippi as well. this region picking up significant rainfall. you can see some spots in particular seeing more than 30 inches of rain. like we mentioned, the threat for more flooding and more heavy rain is not oef just yet. we had heavy rooifrn eastern texas. a bit of a break across parts of louisiana. now i want to share with you one of the computer models so you can see how much rain is in the forecast here. some of that red shading is potentially more than 4 inches. locally heavier amounts are going to be possible. we have flood watches and warnings in effect. further off toward the north

morning what is most important is that we are safe and unharmed. >> teammate michael phelps noted security is paramount especially when traveling abroad. >> i have a team who personally is always looking out for everything. the usa swimming is always making sure we are as protected as we can be. >> an international olympic committee spokesman initially said reports of a robbery were not true. he later apologized and reversed himself after the u.s. committee confirmed it in a statement. they left the house early in a taxi heading for the olympic village before the hold up and all four athletes are safe in cooperating with authorities. officials from australia and port gall have been robbed in the games. now the australia team banning the athletes from rio beaches from 6:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m.
