8:35 am
spot for years, the sanctuary in the country. the kaufmans expected t t house to be built with a view of the waterfall and not on top of it an quickly realized the beauty of living above this falling water. is there had a common reaction when people see it for the first time? >> yeah, wow. >> reporter: open flow, something wright was known for, allowed for easy entertaining which they did often. mingling with an eclectic crowd of artists and thinker, the furniture much of it built in was also built by wright. >> the smooth surfaces of the concrete and warmth and coolness. >> reporter: seamless windows maximize the connection to the outdoors along with expansive terraces. in the livingoom the hatch normally closed to visitors opened to reveal direct access to the stream below. >> these sections push back which are concealed under the planter.

water change things for frank lloyd wright? >> came at a time in his career when he had very little work. he was 67 years old and this was his statement o o i'm still many a fire. >> reporter: thanks to the kaufman family more than 4.5 million visitors have wked the grounds of the most well preserved wright home in the@ united states. they entrusted falling water and several hundred acres of land to the western pennsylvania conservancy and today it's the only one of wright's homes open to the public with its original furnishings, artwork and setting intact. what do you think it is that keeps people coming here? >>t has had a timeless quality about it, and i think as long as it's cared for and presented the way the kaufmans understood it, it should continue to speak to generations to many could. main that ining falling water is a year round job.
8:37 am
stripped yearly and the caretakers focus on the wear and their that come from the 160,000 advici thors that come and they limit the number of visitors. tours resume in march but it's not just people like that that go there. brad pitit is a huge history buff so for a few years angelina jolie said i don't know what to get him. >> bought him t house. >> organized a two-hour private tour and had a little party inside in the living room and invited all the staff apparently and he was blown away. it's remarkable to see it in person. >> keep in in great shape. >> the woman who we spoke to who is the director and curator and started out there as a guide in her teens. she was so in the house. >> looks so ntemporary, fresh today. >> and there's a dishwasher in there that still works from the '30s, wow? >> what's his name? >> his name is al. >> erica, thank you so much. all right. coming up next, the slow cooker secret to making the best

with look who is here, allegedly who will help host the next hour. you've got celebrity taster down there. >> so lucky, so fortunate. >> everybody feels stronglyp about their own chili recipe. for you what sets this apart and why is this special? >> being portuguese i guess there's chorizo which will give a unique spoky flavor to the dish, also using a little bit of paprika which is big in portuguese cuisine. >> that's our ingredient grid. >> turkey cancels out the sausage, right? >> you'll start off by taking chorizo which is great little smoked sausage and you cut it up into small pieces so it has a consistent sip as a me. do you have a trick for dicing it. >> important to start out with even pieces and here we have the chorizo. we have a little bit of peppers and bell peppers and onions and
8:40 am
>> sauteing in oil or butter or what? >> using oil. >> you can use butter also. ves a very goodat. we'll add chorizo that's been diced up and stir it around and get it nice and toasty. the chorizo has been cooked and smoked already but you wan to brown it and get the flavors out of it a a deglazing a pan is northern so we'll move on to this side.
8:41 am
say daying but he is likely going to be okay. all of this r this are early reports that@ the injuries to this officer were not fatal, but we know the support is in custody. lot of questions. we will know when he gets there as to what led up to this. we gave the location so we know it's at that intersection and the closest major roadway is miami gardens 2kr50i6. as to what led up to it, much more informataton once he gets on the scene and he should be there in the next couple of minutes. >> there is a nearby park and it happened in the carroll city park that we did not stress enough that is by schools. the shooter is in custody and it contained.
8:42 am
out what led up to this and the recovery process for the officer. >> we are trying to get in contact with the miami police department not only to find out he identity of the officer shot, but what happened that led to all of this. there schools and restaurants in that area. miami gardens dreway is a busy area. there a lot of restaurants and businesses and schools. we mentioned that miami carol city park on northwest 32nd avenue, we understand the park. we are trying to figure out with calls to the police department whether or not that police officer approached someone or whether it was something that led them to that park and that's where it ended.
8:43 am
answer hopefully very shortly. >> miami-dade police department is responding to this which is natural with an officer-inlved shooting. they take calls in that area and all hands on deck. as part of the investigation to figure out what happened. this is just the beginning of what is going to be a long investigation. we want to stress that if you are just tuning in that the shooter is in custody. the situation is contained and righthtow making calls at the school departments and districts to find out what the situation is. the people inquiring about what is going on seem to be high school age. they see the police presence and they are wondering we are at school and what is gogong on. that is most of the people we see. younger folks on twitter saying i see a number of unmarked cars
8:44 am
what is going on? an officer has been shot and will be okay. >> therethree schools in that arar. parents and family who have students at the schools wondering whether or not they are on lockdown. that is a question, but one of the things we know that is confirmed is that the suspect is in custody. the school r school is on lockdown, but the suspect is in custody. michael spears is in a live vehicle on the way to the scene giving us an update. how close are you and you are monitoring twitter and seeing the same information. what can you tell us? >> you can see we are a couple minutes out and this is whh we are seeing. we are coming across officers.
8:45 am
wowoing towards northwest 32nd avenue. we are on northwest 183rd. as we get closos and closer, we can see flashing lits. we are approaching northwest 22nd and on 32nd is the 16. the information we have is you have. one officer shot sometime this morning at northwest 183rd. the officer is in good condition. the police chief will be here to update us as far as what happened. we have good news as far as the officer's condition, we're not sure what led up to it and if shots were exchanged or not. as we come across the scene, we
8:46 am
of that. northwest 183rd blocked off. >> stand by. >> michael spears was live for us in the vehicle that was approaching the scene at 183rd and 32nd avenue he said at that intersection that things were obviously blocked off. one of the b b questions we have is obviously whether or not the suspect had a gun and if there was an exchange of gunfire between the officer hit and the suspect in custody. give us an idea of what you are seeing. >> we just got diverted from northwest 183rd. i will hop out. it is raping, but i will walk
8:47 am
flip you around to norththest 183rd. traffic is divert and we expect the police chief to arrive and update us on the officer being shot. the officer is expected to live and is in good condition. i can see the street sign that they are diverting traffic here. it's a bit of a trafficam with all of this activity in the area. down the street is west on northwest. that's where the officer was possibly shot. we will try to talk to p pple in the area and see if they heard anything and get back to you. >> we just want to stress that chopper 6 would normally be over the scene, but because of the
8:48 am
able to do that. we would be there much quiuier. the 8183rd and northwest 32nd avenue is blocked in the area. they are being diverted. >> we can ask the control room to kill the audio in our ear soy we ca hear michael. shelly mentioned the rain. he mentioned a couple of times to us that the police chief is supposed to be on scene. we will get much better indication in terms of what led up to this shooting. that's the big thing. all we heard was possible officer down. we heard nothing about a car or
8:49 am
we know that that shooting happened at miami carroll park. if you are headed towards the miami gardens area near 183rd and 32nd avenue, try to avoid that. it's a mess. they have the intersection blocked off as michael continues to find witnesses in that area and wait for the police chief. >> it is a very busy area and you are probably concerned about your child's school and your situation. we are making calls to figure out if they are on lockdown. this officer is okay. he has nonlife-threatening injuries. the chief antonio is on the way there and as soon as he arrives to thescene, he will give us more information as to what led up to this.
8:50 am
the police department is helping out. normally you have outside agencies assisting when it is an officer-involved shooting. the shooter is in custody and this officer is in okay condition. it's a matter of investigating how it started. >> reporting live as the live vehicle was moving down 183rd and where the intersection is. you can see a valer's gas station and a couple of restaurants that you couldn't see. they are off the main road. there is a lot in the area. we didn't hear the sirens and obviously a police officer was shot and he is going to be okay, but that has not been confirmed yet. i think a good reason to step
8:51 am
the fear, we were not seeing fire trucks in terms of a response. what happened there at carroll park is contained at this point. michael is gathering information and throughout the course of the morning, we will continue to chchck in with him. >> because this is a busy intersection, you have miami gardens drive by the schools and the park, we went over toicle whoa has beenatching the area. we saw that michael was blocked. that intersection. he was diverted. what else can y y tell us? can you give us detours they can get around? >> we are taking a look at the google map. you can take a look and you see here off to the right hand side, a victory gas station.
8:52 am
the best alternate is northwest 199th street. this a busy intersection because there businesses and a lot of homes and the schools as well. there a few other gas stations around the area and i am getting tweets on and messages saying they do see police a ativity and the cars are being rerouted. my sister was droifg around that area and had to be rerouted and made a u-turn to get to work on time. 1919th is the best alternate. checking out what is around that area and thou affects your drive, miami carroll park. 199th street. if you do happen to live around the area and have to get on to miami gardens drive.
8:53 am
u-turn and you will have to take 175th or 199th street instead. >> thank you very much for the information. if you are just tuning in, we want to bring you up to speed. thre was an officer, a miami gardens police officer who was shot. he is going to be okay. we don't know who this person is, but the shooter, the person involved in this is in custody. it is contained situation at this time. >> michael spears is there and at that intersection at carroll park in miami gardens. he is talking with people who might have seen something or heararsomething. normally in this situation, you wouldn't be looking at us for this length of time. usually we have chopper 6 up and dispatched so at least we would have live pictures. when you get an ariel view, it
8:54 am
terms of what is happening and the schools and businesses. because of the rain we can't dispatch chopper 6. wore waiting for more information. michael is there with the photographer. we should have live pictures in a couple of minutes, but just maybe five minutes ago we talked to him and he was on his cell phone and had live pictures. there was a live police presence, but nothing chaotic. that police officer was shot and taken to the hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries. the person they believe to be the suspect is in custody. >> the two two scenes. one is where it originated. on 183rd and northwest seventh avenue. this is where it started and where it ended is northwest 183rd and northwest 32nd avenue. it means there two scenes.
8:55 am
investigations. you can expect that area to be blocked off. this tells you t tere was a pursuit. not sure if that was boy car or foot. clearly because the suspect was found not where it originated, but they did look for him quickly. >> definitely a point oa and point b. that's something we do not know. we have been talking with kelly and the roadways are blocked off and northwest 175th and 199th. other roads are blocked as we ntinue the investigation. >> new information coming in. traffic is closed off at 29th court and northwest 183rd street. that's where they are blocking traffic and forcing people to make a u-turn and as you said,
8:56 am
we know they have confirmed 183rd is completely shut down. >> thank you so much. we will continunu to monitor the situation with the police officer being shot at 183nd and 32nd avenue. >> he is going to be okay. we have a suspect in cust doe. check our nbc 6 news and weather app. michael will give us more information and he is right here. can you hear us? >> yes, we can. we moved closer. i want to flip you around and you can see northwest 183rd street at 32nd avenue. this apparently where the suspect was arrested. t where the shooting happened as far as police. that happened down northwest
8:57 am
we can see a lot of officers and in the middle of the intersection, there was a truck that appears to have damage to it at the little of the intersection. if i iwas an instant and there was a chase before this, but that is part of the crime ene and another vehicle and still working to find out more information. the officer is in good condition and where woe are to get perspective. this is just right off of the park. the suspect in custody. we will work to find out information. it's okay to make c cls and update you soon. >> you can imagine it will g@t more complicated because it is raining. it will take longer and you can expect delays to last longer. our big question is because it is so close to schools, how it
8:58 am
we are working to make calls, but keep it here. michael, let me ask you what other agencies are you seeing? there is more than one, is that correct? >> miami police are assisting. there several lockdowns in the area because of the zfgz an officer down. that's carroll city middle school and high school both lockdown. you know what it also affects barbara hawkins school. miami, carroll city middle and carroll city high and b brbara hawkins on lockdown. miami-dade policeere called in and i can see miami-dade cools are here. when they get the call that an

officers respond to this. one, two, three public schools. police vehicles in this area. you see a lot of officers and i don't know if they are taking shelter or that is tied to this, but we will have an update for you soon. back to you. >> one that you notice, be you don't see a chaotic scene. trying to figure out what happened really. >> even though the schools michael mentioned three schools. carroll middle, carroll high, and barbara hopkinin that's actual low a good thing. all of it is as a precaution. from what we are seeing and hearing, there is no danger there. ey are on lockdown because a police officer was shot, but it
9:00 am
police that the suspee is in custody. this moans they are making sure that everything is taken care of and also the students are safe. it may sound like an alarm and very well if you have kids at that school. it's just a precaution. they know the suspect is in custody. >> stay here. we will have -- lockdown has been lifted on all three schools. >> another good sign. >> lockdown is lifted on all three schools. >> we will continue to monitor the situation and cutting in to your programming and a full update for2you. >> in the meantime check our news and weather app and we will episode of "the black list." >> we got back your mris and looks like you sustained three broken ribs and no other internal injuries. nothing much we can do abo the ribs. toughen it out.
