8:02 am
morning after the latest twist in the case of former nfl player joe mcknight. we want you to look at this flood of tweets from people in the pro football community. mcknight was shot and killed in an apparent road rage incident in louisiana and the next day the police decided to release the shooter. they have not charged him. we're now learning that the same man was involved in yet another road rage incident in the same location. abc's eva pilgrim is in gretna, louisiana, for us. hi, eva. >> reporter: good morning. ten years ago according to court documents, ronald gasser was accused of beating up a man at this gas station in an apparent road rage incident. now this week at this stoplight he admits to shooting a man. this morning, new details about the man who police say admits to shooting a former nfl running back during what authorities are calling a road rage incident. >> we definitely need answers. >> why was he released?
8:03 am
>> they have usurped and krrpted the criminal justice cyst. >> reporter: he shot joe mcknight three times. the jefferson parish coroner telling abc news the man was struck in the hand, shoulder and chest. >> mr. gasser admitted to shooting joe mcknight jr. >> reporter: mcknight's family and supporters in the community outraged his killer was released from custody and has not been charged. >> i want answers. i want the truth to come out. >> it's not a white or black thing. it's a right or wrong thing. >> reporter: according to records released by the sheriff's department overnight, gasser was arrested for a violent fight during a road rage incident in 2006 at a gas station at the same intersection where he allegedly shot and killed mcknight. charges from the 2006 incident were later dropped. on thursday, investigators say witnesses reported seeing the two men arguing. the sheriff telling abc news mcknight was not armed when gasser fired those shots from
8:04 am
his car. >> mr. gasser did not stand over mr. mcknight and fire shots into him. >> reporter: still the sheriff says charging gasser before a thorough investigation is completed would be a rush to judgment. mcknight's family overcome with emotion. >> i lost a friend, i lost my everything. >> reporter: the sheriff saying this case is very personal for his department. the man who raised mcknight was a sheriff's deputy. paula. >> all right, eva, we'll pick it up from here. thank you so much. we want to bring in abc news consultant, brad garrett, a former fbi special agent. brad, thanks for joining us and people understandably right now are outraged. there's no denying that ronald gasser killed joe mcknight, so why would gasser be released and not charged? >> because under louisiana law, looking at justifiable homicide, if you are in your vehicle and someone attempts to enter it,
8:05 am
now we don't know that fact, but i'm going to presume that for a second, that mr. mcknight tried to get into mr. gasser's vehicle, he's justified in shooting him and the sheriff basically alluded to that yesterday in a press conference that justifiable homicide may play into effect into this case. >> yeah, law enforcement said there's no video of the incident and gasser was not standing over mcknight when he was shot. gasser's prior record, as you heard in the piece, he was arrested in 2006, another rage road incident in nearly the identical location. is this going to factor into this investigation, brad? >> it will not factor into the investigation of this particular situation, paula, and i'll tell you why, i worked a lot of murders and what happens is a person may have been charged with murder in the past or a suspect, but you have to look what's in front of you, and i think that's what the sheriff is trying to do. if he is charged, it becomes more relevant once you get in court. >> all right, the sheriff promising a deliberate and thorough investigation, brad, thanks for your insight as usual. thanks, brad.
8:06 am
dan. >> thank you, paula, and, brad, we're going to move on to an extraordinary impasse in the case of michael slager. he's the former police officer charged with murder. he was caught on video shooting an unarmed black man in the back as that man was running away. we may now though be looking at a hung jury all because of one juror. abc's steve osunsami is in charleston, south carolina, on the story this morning. steve, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you, dan. this is one of the first times i've ever covered a trial where we not only know there is a lone hold-out juror, but we're pretty sure which one. that said, this jury has agreed to keep going. >> if you will bring the jury -- >> reporter: this morning the one juror who says he doesn't want to convict this former police officer is at home going over his thoughts. he speaks for many in this community who have trouble second-guessing a law enforcement officer even when the officer is seen here in video recorded on a cell phone shooting a black man running away from him in the back. in court the hold-out juror wrote to the judge.
8:07 am
>> i cannot in good conscience consider a guilty verdict. at the same time my heart does not want to have to tell the scott family that the man that killed their son, brother, and father is innocent. >> reporter: michael slager is fighting murder and voluntary manslaughter charges. murder could mean life in prison. of the nearly all white jury, it appears that the hold-out is a white juror who looked visibly at odds with the others. it's clear this juror was listening when slager's attorney said they needed to send a message of support to police across america. >> don't make an example of michael slager. don't let that happen. >> reporter: the scott family and their lawyers hope this juror has a change of heart when the jury meets again. >> it's been a long day. it's been a tough day, but it's not over, and we do believe within our heart that we will
8:08 am
see justice for my brother. >> reporter: jurors will come back here first thing monday morning. the jury foreman who is the only african-american of the group believes they can come to a verdict with a little more time. based on the questions they're asking, it appears they're looking at the manslaughter charge and not murder. paula. >> all right. steve osunsami, thank you. no doubt this case could really set a precedent for other similar cases around the country. thanks, steve. and this morning in politics donald trump defending his decision to accept a phone call from the president of taiwan. that's something that no u.s. president or president-elect has done in nearly four decades. this controversy, it's all brewing as the trump team continues crisscrossing the country in what's being billed a thank you tour. abc's david wright is at trump tower for us this morning with the very latest on the transition. hi, david. >> reporter: hi, paula. beijing this morning said it has lodged solemn representations to the u.s. over that call and trump is now the first u.s. leader to speak with the taiwanese president since jimmy carter.
8:09 am
it has the makings of a diplomat incident and it's impossible to say right now whether this was a rookie mistake or a deliberate provocation. >> china is ripping us off. you know who is getting the oil, china. what china is doing to us is horrible. >> reporter: on the campaign trail donald trump made a habit of promising to be a thorn in china's side. >> they are the greatest currency manipulators ever. >> reporter: and now trump is keeping that promise with a simple phone call. by accepting a congratulatory call from taiwan's president, president-elect trump broke four decades of u.s. diplomatic tradition, ever since nixon's visit to china in 1972, the u.s. has had a one china policy, recognizing only one of the two countries that call themselves china. overnight he tweeted defensively that taiwan's president called me. top aides won't say if the fact that he took the call signals a change in u.s. policy. >> he's well aware of what u.s.
8:10 am
policy has been. >> reporter: trump has yet to announce his secretary of state. the top diplomat whose job it would be to smooth over any bad feelings in beijing, one of seven cabinet seats yet to be filled. and trump is now taking flack from a possible pick for v.a. secretary, sarah palin, over the deal he struck with carrier. palin, an early endorser of trump's, is going rogue in this op-ed blasting the carrier deal as crony capitalism and a hallmark of corruption and socialism. now, trump isn't showing any signs of changing his approach to job displacement tweeting overnight about another indiana company that's taking its jobs to mexico, naming and shaming them. the company is called rexner, dan. >> i can't remember a presidential transition this eventful. david wright, thank you very much for your reporting this morning. let's talk more about all of this now with abc news political analyst matthew dowd. let's start, good morning, by the way. >> good morning. >> let's start with this thing in taiwan.
8:11 am
many foreign policy experts are aghast that the president-elect did this. some people, however, are applauding him. so in your view is trump crazy or crazy like a fox? >> probably a little bit of both would be the definition of this. i was thinking about what sort of typifies this and i thought of the movie "rush hour." his supporters and his staff are acting like he's jackie chan, knows exactly what he's doing and all this. everybody else thinks he's chris tucker, stumbling through this and maybe finds a success in the mid of this. i think it's problematic. >> i hope our viewers have seen "rush hour" by the way. >> there's three of them. of of them. you better have saw one to me it's problematic for two reasons. one, if he did it unintention unintentionally, it's a rookie mistake, he needs to figure it out, but, two, if he did this intentionally but he did it without a far east policy in place to explain and a staff that could explain to the public why you are doing this, what's the outcome of this and what's the real strategy of this, my guess is this was donald trump doing something visceral. he took a call from a leader and now is trying to figure out how
8:12 am
in the aftermath of that to explain it. >> some of the other phone calls he's had with foreign leaders have raised eyebrows. just a couple examples here, he praised the president of kazakhstan even though that president is really a dictator. he invited the president of the philippines to washington even though there's been a lot of howling about massive human rights abuses in philippines in the last year or so. so, what do you think overall is going on here and could it be good he's shaking things up? >> i think, one, his supporters think it's really good getting in a fight with china i think is a good thing for most of his supporters in this. i think it does demonstrate he probably needs to get a secretary of state nominee on the board pretty quickly. one thing we learned in the campaign and that we're now learning from him as president he didn't play by the rules in the campaign, he won't play by the rules of diplomacy and international relations. he's just not going to do it. >> very quickly before we run here, sarah palin, did she just cost herself a cabinet post? >> my guess is that was already decided before and then she released the statement but she's right actually. this is a case of rewarding a
8:13 am
specific company so in this case from conservative republican policy she's right. it's anathema to them that donald trump did this. >> matt dowd, thank you. appreciate it. and the people from "rush hour" thank you, as well. a quick programming note, abc news chief anchor george stephanopoulos is going to go one-on-one with the vice president-elect mike pence tomorrow on "this week" right here on abc. thanks again, matt. >> thanks. we want to send things over to ron claiborne for a look at the headlines including a school bus crash. >> good morning. robert. good morning, everyone. we begin in midland, texas, where a school bus carrying a high school cheerleader squad collided with a tractor trailer sending 11 people to the hospital. two are reported in critical conditions. others in serious condition. the cheerleaders were returning home from a football game when the 18-wheeler crossed into the path of their bus. and in los angeles, a university of southern california professor was stabbed to death on campus and this morning the suspect a student is in custody.
8:14 am
police say psychology professor bosco tjan was targeted by the suspect who attacked him inside of a campus building. the married father joined the usc faculty in 2001. and in sioux falls, south dakota, cheers erupting as a rescue worker frees a woman trapped in the rubble of a collapsed building. officials say the 22-year-old was able to call her mother on her cell phone while trapped helping rescuers locate her there. she also managed to -- they also managed to pull out her dog alive. one construction worker died in the collapse of the building which had been undergoing renovations at that time. and that daredevil teen that was busted for climbing up one world trade center in new york city two years ago is in trouble again with the law. justin casquejo is accused of reckless endangerment and trespassing, this after posting dizzy videos on top of some manhattan skyscrapers. he surrendered to police and was released from custody after posting a $15,000 bond. determined fellow there.
8:15 am
and in college football, the number four team in the country, the university of washington, the huskies rolling over the university of colorado, the buffaloes, i believe. 41-10. final score in the pac-12 championship game friday night. that all but guarantees washington will be one of four teams contending for the national title. tomorrow is selection sunday when the four -- like that, huh -- match-ups will be announced. 'bama, clemson, washington and ohio state, no michigan. and finally, finally, nba superstar and very vocal cleveland indians fan lebron james proving that sometimes even the king has to eat some crow. you're going to see him wearing a chicago cubs uniform, paula, this should make you happy before his game against the bulls in chicago after losing a world series bet to close friend and former teammate dwyane wade. lebron taking it all in stride saying, a bet is a bet. paula, a bet is a bet. >> why are you looking at me?
8:16 am
do i owe you something? >> we bet on ohio state/michigan. >> we did. >> don't you owe rob some -- >> that's between rob and i. >> all backed up with our bets. >> the problem he often pays in singles and pennies so i don't often -- >> a bet is a bet unless you're ron claiborne apparently. we do have to change the subject quickly while you explain things to rob. we do want to tell you about this harrowing 911 call. a man talking to the operator while three other men break into the home. then the homeowner opens fire with his shotgun. the story now from abc's adrienne bankert. >> two got out, this he's getting ready to jump the fence. >> reporter: this chilling 911 call capturing the moment a florida homeowner makes the split-second decision between life and death. >> they're in the house. >> reporter: that's the voice of 31-year-old warren darlow whispering to a 911 operator that three men have broken into his home then gunfire. >> tell me what is happening, sir. >> i killed one, i think. >> reporter: according to affidavits obtained by abc news, around 11:00 a.m. monday darlow
8:17 am
told police he saw three men he didn't know get out of a car after pulling into his driveway. >> i have you on speaker. i don't know if they're getting ready to come in or not. >> reporter: darlow grabbing a gun and calling for help as they shatter a glass door. darlow firing three times, police telling us one of the men, a 21-year-old, died at the hospital. the two alleged accomplices to that deadly home invasion also in their 20s left the scene but were quickly captured. this week a judge ordering them held without bond. >> there's a co-defendant in the case who is dead. you are young men. i don't know what you did. i don't know what you didn't do. but here's what i know, you don't want to wind up dead. >> reporter: even though they didn't fire the weapon, those two young accomplices still face murder charges. we weren't able to reach the homeowner who will not be charged in this case due to the state's stand your ground law. dan and paula, he said multiple times to the
8:18 am
911 operator that he feared for his life. >> scary stuff. adrienne, thank you very much. appreciate it. >> thanks, adrienne. let's send things over to rob. what's shaking in the weather department? wind blowing yesterday, take a look at the video damage in and around the los angeles area. 101 outside studio city, i made this drive many, many times. trees down and blocked traffic. beverly hills trees down. 50-mile an hour windy gusts a problem yesterday and problem today. we have red flag warnings and fire danger critical, as well. winds could gust in the mountains 50, 60, 70 miles per hour. the eastern tennessee fires will take all the rain they can get. a wet day in texas and oklahoma today. in the next couple of days we'll get had -- 4 to inches. we'll see flooding in eastern

8:20 am
getting a little glimpse of the old tiger woods. that's the putting legend shooting a 65 on friday, 7 under par in the second round of the hero world challenge in the bahamas. not bad for his first return to the sport in 15 months. in classic tiger fashion, he sinks this long putt on number 12 sealing the deal, of course, with a fist pump. >> it was very important for me because i hadn't felt the competitive flow and the feel in a long time. >> reporter: once the number one ranked golfer his career went into a tailspin after a letted confrontation with his then wife elin nordegren led to a smashed up suv and a string of exposed infidelities. 12 weeks later after losing millions in endorsements he made a public apology and announced a 45-day stint in rehab. but his quest to reclaim his spot at the top has been plagued by injury, extended absences and false starts. in 2015 one of the game's most decorated athletes played some
8:21 am
of the worst golf of his career. >> just totally out of sorts now for tiger. >> reporter: but on friday with four birdies and a final score of 4 under par, tiger is once again giving fans hope he may finally be making his long awaited comeback. >> i've made subtle changes here and there. i've tried to go back and do some stuff that i used to do as a junior. >> looks like that strategy is paying off. in case he's not enough of a lure, woods is paired with another superstar, ricky fowler for the third round of the world challenge. they tee off today at 12:26 eastern. even i might watch. >> that says a lot. >> it's not normally a good mix. >> i can't imagine having four knee surgeries, three back surgeries as well trying to come back. in his 40s. everybody knows things get better in your 40s, correct? >> well, his back is a big concern right now. that's the big worry. but he says he's feeling great. >> tiger drives the ratings so all the players want him back. >> they don't want him to be that good. >> exactly. >> thank you, rob. >> good enough. coming up on "gma" this saturday morning the abc news

8:33 am
