7:07 am
much care, really, are taking much better care by this country taking care of than our veterans. >> reporter: but the reality, congress and many states have enacted laws aimed at restricting government services to those living in the country illegally. trump raising eyebrows by draw -- >> i thought what really amazes me, i thought this would be like dr. martin luther king where people would be lined up from here all the way to the washington monument. right? >> reporter: and this morning, could a third-party candidate be set to join the race? bill christol dropping this hint. trump firing back and calling him an embarrassing loser and saying that a third-party candidate would be a spoiler and this weekend trump went on a

veterans charities tomorrow. tamron, carson, back to you. >> kristen, thanks so much. let's bring in msnbc's steve kornacki. >> good morning. >> if i had a dollar for every time you and i talked about a third-party candidate and now bill crystal says he means business. >> it includes mitt romney, ben sass, tom coburn and they have all indicated that the answer is no and the bigger problem is this. the ballot deadline has passed in texas. it's going to pass a few days after that in indiana. >> it someone gets in there, what does it do to trump's candidacy? >> if it's coming from the right and disgruntled republicans, that's why trump acted
7:10 am
aggressively. and the libertarian party nominated their ticket. you have two former governors, gary johnson of new mexico, bill weld of massachusetts. there is a threat there to trump. >> speaking of something else trump may be worried about, a judge deciding that documents related to the document against trump university will be released. kristen reported on that tirade from trump. he's run as a businessman of great success. could this be a bad week? >> every new revelation, every knew statement, boy, never seems to stop him. however, this one, the trump university thing, i do think there's an aspect to the story that is more understandable to people. it's more relatable to people. what he's accused of here, it really looks like at least what he's accused of could be seen as a con john against ordinary people and i think it's more understandable than some of the other things democrats have gone afteom
7:11 am
vulnerability. i think that's why you saw that pre-emptive strike that trump is launching into. >> asking bernie to step out, unify the party, it seems at this point doing lasting damage to hillary? >> i don't think we're at that point yet. eight years ago, memorial day weekend in the clinton/obama race, hillary clinton was saying i'm in until the convention. barack obama's people saying this is going to hurt the party long term. what ended up happening is they finished the primary season, she got out of the race. if bernie sanders does that in the next couple of weeks, it leads us where we were eight years ago. the question is, does he push farther? if he will to win california, that could embolden him and push him to the convention. >> steve kornacki, thank you. investigators in houston are trying to piece together what set off a deadly shooting rampage. gabe gutierrez has the latest.
7:12 am
morning. this is a far cry from the terrifying scene that erupted on sunday. this gas station catching fire. bullets flying everywhere. somethi sending frightened residents for cover. >> reporter: investigators are trying to find out what led to a deadly shooting rampage. >> we don't know if he was out to target law enforcement, if he was going to shoot people randomly. i would say an attack on both is probably fair to say. >> reporter: the chaos broke out sunday morning. as a man with an ar-15 style gun -- >> all we could hear was the helicopters and rapid gunfire. >> reporter: stray bullets at this gas station and one man was killed getting his car
7:13 am
>> i seen a man hunched over with what looked to be a gunshot wound to his neck. >> reporter: police race to the scene, a helicopter and three squad cars. one deputy took several rounds in his bullet-proof vest. >> one of my classmates got shot in the leg. >> reporter: four others wounded before a s.w.a.t. team shot and killed the gunman. >> this is not the behavior we expect to see on memorial day weekend in any community in the united states but it's what we've had here. >> reporter: police are now questioning one of the other wounded men as a possible second suspect. right now, it's unclear what role he played in the shooting. both of the deputies have been treated and leased from the hospital. tamron and carson, so far no word on any motive. back to you. >> sad scene there in houston. gabe gutierrez, thank you so much. rain is not the only concern.
7:14 am
in florida and the other in southern california where a two-mile stretch of beach is closed. steve, good morning. >> reporter: tamron, good morning to you. it's the unofficial start to summer. the beach behind me should be packed. it's going to be shut down for at least another 24 hours after the possible shark attack and that's hours after a confirmed bite all the way across the country. fear on a florida beach. a boy just 13 years old bitten by a shark. his father kneeling by his side as lifeguards treat the wound on his right leg. a woman cradle the boy in her arms as he cries in pain. this is the devastation left behind. blood left on neptune beach. police say the shark was between 5 and 6 feet long. it's not the only shark scare thismo
7:15 am
>> i don't even know what happened. >> the kids had to get out the water. >> reporter: in newport beach, california, a woman had large bites on her torso and shoulder. she was taken to a local hospital. two miles of corona beach evacuated and shut down for 24 hours as police search the waters for the shark behind the bite. >> obviously if there's an aggressive behavior, we need to take action. >> reporter: last year, there were 59 shark attacks. one of them fatal. more than half of them happened in florida. a grim reminder for the millions of americans at the beach on this holiday. and just another reminder that shark attacks still considered extremely rare. just to give you some context, you're still a lot more likely to be struck by lightning yet they still happen.
7:16 am
>> thank you. iraqi ground forces launched a massive operation overnight to retake the city of fallujah from isis. it's the latest in the attempted to dislodge the militants who have controlled fallujah for more than two years now. it's unclear how long it will take to liberate the city into here at home, a computer glitch led to long delays at check-in at the airport. it started with british airways. a server wasn't acting properly so the airline had to check-in travelers manually. at one point, more than 1,000 passengers were waiting in line. but early this morning, the glitch was fixed and the system is up and running again. and it was a dramatic and improbable finish at the indy 500. alexander rossi became the first rookie in 15 years to win the historic race. it's how he won that has everybody
7:17 am
while everybody else pulled over to fuel up, rossi drove on, cruising passed the checker flags on fumes. he did run out of gas a few moments later and needed to be towed in. he said it was an unlikely win. "i have no idea how we pulled that off." what an exciting finish there. all right. let's get more on the holiday forecast. a mixed bag of things. >> yes. we have to watch out for stronger storms today. not all that widespread, especially across the northern plains and keeping an eye to the sky. in the northeast, most of the heavy rain happen this is morning and then we see more pop-up showers. along the gulf coast, the sun will be shining. west coast, temperatures mainly in the mid-to upper 07s. that's a look at the weather across the country. your local forecast is coming up in just 30 seconds.

and we have a lot of rain to talk about. storms, too, stretching down through austin. nothing too severe but the rain is just reinforcing the flooding that we've seen across most of texas and we are still seeing the rivers above flood stage. any additional rain will make matters worse. we've got a cold front that will move eastward. most of the storms are up through the dakotas. on tuesday, it shifts farther into the southern plains and then we'll see another round of storms through oklahoma and texas by the middle and end of the week. but this is our zeone to watch out for. they will not be widespread but we could see isolated thunderstorms that produce large hail and damaging winds. those are our biggest threats. we can't rule out a tornado. on tuesday, we're not looking at widespread severe storms but we have isolated stronger storms from wisconsin stretching down into southwestern texas and lightning will be the major concern with that one. something we'll keep an eye on tomorrow
