7:01 am
new questions this morning after that deadly school shooting. the anonymous warning now revealed. a parent calls the school a perfect storm for trouble months before the rampage. and this morning an exclusive, one of the hero students shot trying to stop the gunman joins us live. the fake heiress. convicted of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars to live a life of luxury in manhattan, now breaking her silence as she's sentenced to years behind bars. and why new parents prince harry and duchess meghan are teaming up with will and kate. the fab four's new mission this morning inspired by princess diana. >> this will make a huge difference to people's lives and i really hope you'll come and join our team. >> how they're trying to help people in crisis using text messages. good morning, america. it's great to have you with us on this friday morning. it is mother's day weekend and we got a big mother's day
7:02 am
surprise right here in our studio. you don't want to miss that and in case we forget on air, happy mother's day. >> happy mother's day. >> thank you so much. i appreciate that. we can't wait to celebrate with this military family. we have a military union nearly a year in the making. this dad is going to surprise his wife and here's the big surprise, he's going to meet his baby for the first time. it's going to be an incredible celebration for the whole family and we all get to watch it. >> they're all here but no idea what's going on right now. we begin with that breaking news overnight. right at midnight president trump imposed new tariffs on $200 billion worth of chinese imports to the u.s. this dramatic escalation in the trade war comes just ahead of last-ditch talks today with china promising to retaliate and american consumers caught in the middle and terry moran covering the latest from the white house. terry, the president with tweets in this last several minutes on this. >> reporter: he's busy on this subject because the stakes could not be higher. the world's two largest
7:03 am
economies already locked in a trade war and now president trump escalating. as of today as you just pointed out massive new 25% tariffs. those are u.s. imposed government taxes on everything imported from china on thousands of goods from frozen fish to building materials to consumer goods like televisions, consumers are going to pay and so likely will china. that is the theory, anyway. president trump declaring yesterday he's different from other presidents. he doesn't back away from tariffs. he likes to impose them, use them as a weapon and argues that china is to blame. there were months of negotiations on a trade deal and at the 11th hour the u.s. says china started back-pedaling on key demands so the new tariffs were slapped on. it is a good time, president trump says, for the u.s. to do this. the u.s. economy is strong, china is hurting. one thing we should say, in this list of tweets that the president has put out he is telling a falsehood. he is saying that china pays those tariffs directly into the u.s. treasury.
7:04 am
that is not how it works. u.s. importers pay the tax. they pass that on to consumers. that eventually goes into the treasury but china is not paying us a dime and the president is claiming they do. >> not with tariffs. the financial markets seem to still be cautiously betting on a deal. >> reporter: that is the hope certainly. chinese negotiators are in town right now. they will meet with their u.s. counterparts all day. they did not get a deal last night. these are very frantic negotiations. president trump looking for a deal. we may get one today. we may not. right now we're in a bigger trade war than we were. george? >> president trump calls the talks congenial. okay, terry, thanks very much. michael? >> thank you, george. now to that dangerous rain and flooding affecting millions in the south. at least ten inches of rain coming down forcing water rescues overnight. abc's maggie rulli is there in the houston area and, maggie, you're standing outside a home they believe was struck by lightning. >> reporter: yeah, michael. we were out driving around overnight and the sky was absolutely lit up with streaks
7:05 am
of lightning nonstop. now, showing you how dangerous it can be, right behind me is a house that investigators believe was potentially hit by one of those lightning strikes and burst into flames overnight. overnight fire sweeping through this houston mansion. a lightning strike possibly causing flames to quickly engulf the home estimated to be worth over $2 million. the area continuing to get hammered with more rain. people at this gas station taking shelter from heavy winds and rain as garbage cans fly across the parking lot. drivers attempting to maneuver the flooded streets getting stuck after another five inches of rainfall. cars completely submerged. >> a lot of people out here stranded. >> reporter: at least 400 homes now suffering flood damage in the kingwood area. >> i've lost everything. >> reporter: many proactively packing up in the town of rosenberg in anticipation of floodwaters rising. a downpour right through the
7:06 am
roof of the stadium. one of the major concerns is right here.and cutting off this neighborhood. this driver in baton rouge, louisiana, her toyota prius started floating. luckily there was someone on hand to help. in kansas, drone footage capturing the magnitude of the flooding there. the governor issuing a state of disaster emergency declaration in 16 counties. and the rain here just keeps coming down. the people are preparing for a long day ahead with most schools and businesses already closed. >> all right, thank you so much, maggie. now we're going to go to ginger. and, ginger, the floods have been dangerous and more rain coming to the south and it's heading east. >> that's right through the weekend through mother's day. so let's start with the images from highway 190 plowing through the water in louisiana. it wasn't just there but people were stuck on interstate 10 for hours in places. close to houston and into louisiana too so this is a
7:07 am
problem not just there but this morning, flash floods all over corpus christi. so the heavy rain training over southern texas into louisiana and eventually will get to mississippi who has already had 3 to 6 inches of rain this week. that's the problem. this slow-moving system stationary fronts on the front end. what it'll mean is tomorrow morning houston gets more rain. by sunday, north carolina, south carolina and georgia have to look out not just for flash flooding but tornadoes, damaging wind and hail, amy. >> a lot to talk about, thank you. tensions are rising with north korea this morning. new images showing kim jong-un watching that missile test on thursday and now the u.s. is announcing the seizure of a north korean cargo ship. chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz is tracking all the latest on this. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, amy. this morning, kim jong-un ramping up the pressure with the north korean leader ordering his military to be at the ready because peace, he said, can only be achieved through physical strength.
7:08 am
new alarming images released by north korea show kim directing the firing of at least two powerful short-range ballistic missiles, which he says hit their designated targets, the waters off the coast, with great energy. this was the second missile launch in just five days. these latest missiles traveling nearly 200 miles and creating serious concern. >> this missile design is new. it's more capable. it's more sophisticated and potentially could carry a nuclear weapon. >> reporter: president trump saying the actions of the dictator he has called his friend are being looked at very closely now. >> the relationship continues, but we'll see what happens. i know they want to negotiate. they're talking about negotiating but i don't think they're ready to negotiate. >> reporter: just hours after the missile launch, the justice department announcing that the u.s. seized this massive north korean cargo ship. the first time the u.s. has seized a north korean cargo vessel for violating u.s.
7:09 am
sanctions. found off the coast of indonesia, one of a fleet of so-called ghost ships illegally and secretly transporting shipments of coal forbidden under the strict sanctions imposed to force the north to give up its nuclear weapons. but this morning it looks like north korea has no intention of giving up its weapons. the newly nominated defense secretary saying, diplomacy is still on the table but the u.s. military will continue to stand ready in case diplomacy fails. george? >> and the talks are stalled. thanks very much. also, russian secret agent maria butina is speaking out for the first time since pleading guilty, sentenced to more than a year behind bars. our chief justice correspondent pierre thomas has the details. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: george, good morning. that's right. facing 18 months in prison, butina gives a jailhouse interview to npr. she's accused of infiltrating the nra and american politics and passing information back to
7:10 am
a key putin ally. she expresses regret for the controversy she's caused but butina says she's no spy. >> i love both countries. this is the worst pain of my situation now was that i am embarrassed that instead of creating peace by not registering, i created discord. that is what i'm going to carry for the whole of my life. >> reporter: the fbi believes she was an operative potentially identifying u.s. targets for russian intelligence to later compromise. they maintain russia is an adversary who is always seeking to undermine the u.s. putin claims butina was treated unfairly and is a scapegoat. bottom line she is going to prison and scheduled to begin her sentence soon. >> then back to russia. pierre thomas, thanks very much. michael? now to one of the most highly anticipated ipos in years. uber is making its stock market debut today and janai norman is here with how it could affect the price of your ride. good morning, janai. >> good morning. this is the day investors have been waiting for. uber's ipo, it stands to make
7:11 am
investors a lot of money, but it could mean riders will end up paying more. asking price is $45 per share. so uber's value could top $80 billion, more than companies like ford and gm. but the company has been at the center of controversy since it was launched. almost constant lawsuits from cities trying to fight its very existence, questionable behavior that forced travis kalanick to step down and two days ago drivers across the u.s. and in other countries went on strike demanding better pay and benefits and still uber anticipates driver dissatisfaction will increase as it makes changes aimed at ng pr. >> so the bottom line, what does it mean for those who use uber? >> the thing is it could mean prices will likely go up and that's because becoming a public company means investors will now be more focused on uber's earnings. to this point uber has never made a profit. the company lost $1.8 billion last year alone. so uber will likely have to raise prices and, guys, for riders that means spending more money.
7:12 am
>> somehow i knew you were going to say that. >> me too. >> a lot of questions about how much the drivers are getting paid as well. thanks very much. now to some good news this morning. 7-week-old baby who was reported kidnapped in north carolina was found safe overnight. police are now investigating the mystery over her disappearance and abc's steve osunsami is in asheville, north carolina, with the latest. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning to you, george. it is quite the mystery and it is fortunate that this child lived. asheville police who are investigating this behind me are trying to figure out how in the world a baby got to a lawn some 20 miles away from where the mother says the child went missing. this morning, a 7-week-old baby girl whose mother says she was kidnapped is safe and sound after a homeowner happened to hear the baby crying in his front yard in rural north carolina. >> we just heard a baby crying. and my wife said, scott, there's a baby crying down there over the driveway somewhere. i went to looking and i seen it down over the bank. >> reporter: the baby's mother
7:13 am
told police a frightening story, that she and the newborn were kidnapped by a man and woman wearing ski masks around 4:30 thursday afternoon, but the mom said only she was able to escape. two hours later the police found the missing car but not the baby. then at 8:00 p.m. scott fowler heard the cries of an infant outside his home. he and his wife found the child in a car seat placed next to a rock in his yard. he's thankful the child was left close to his home. we expect police to share more details today to answer some of those questions. as far as the child's condition, amy, they tell us that she is in good condition, was not hurt and that, of course, is a blessing. >> yeah, thank goodness for that. steve, thanks so much. and now to the big initiative from the fab four, new parents harry and meghan teaming up with will and kate to try to help people in crisis. and linsey davis is in london with all of those details. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, amy.
7:14 am
you know, they just had a baby four days ago but of course the work of a royal continues. and while the duke and duchess of sussex were unable to attend, will and kate were on hand for the big announcement. the young royals foundation making its biggest investment ever, taking on mental health. this morning, the fab four's banding together for mental health. the young royals announcing a new phone messaging service called shout to help those struggling with mental health issues. >> shout is a new text line that supports people who need advice in a tough moment. it operates 24/7 and connects people to trained volunteers who provide help at a time when it is most needed. enabling them to move from crisis to calm and to find longer-term support. >> reporter: prince william appears in the video about the initiative. >> texting is private and silent. it opens up a whole new way to find help. it provides instant support. you can have a conversation anywhere at any time. at school, at home, on the bus,
7:15 am
anywhere. i am incredibly excited to be launching this service knowing it has the potential to reach thousands of vulnerable people r >> thereanto bable to do something to help and a big part of what they bring is alleviating the stigma around talking about the issue. >> we wanted to do our bit to make it easier for people to start to get the help they need. and crucially we wanted to back new innovative ways for people to have conversations wherever they are at whatever time they need someone to talk to. >> reporter: the princes have both widely been praised for being open about their own struggle with their mental health in the wake of the death of their mother princess diana in 1997. they've been meeting with volunteers along with duchesses kate and meghan. >> over the last few months shout has started working quietly behind the scenes. harry, meghan, katherine and i have been able to see it working up close and are very excited for its future. >> reporter: during the trial
7:16 am
there were 60,000 text conversations, mostly people under the age of 25 years old wanting to talk about suicide, anxiety and depression. this is a free service and clearly a much needed service, guys. >> yeah, linsey, thanks very much. that's so great. that's the best way to reach young people, through texting. >> that's where they live. >> doing great work there. now we're going to go to a big announcement from ceo jeff bezos, amazon's ceo, about a plan to send people to the moon. t.j. holmes is here with the details. >> this is a lot of american pride, history and lore. being the first to the moon. we haven't been back since 1972. that's 47 years. jeff bezos says it's time to go back and it's time to stay. the first step he claims is the announcement that he made -- look at that. there it is. this could be the thing that takes us back to the moon. this is a lunar lander he calls blue moon. he said this thing could be ready to go within five years. initially the one you're seeing, someone describe it as a small house, this one could initially
7:17 am
take equipment, payloads, to get set for people to come to the moon and then modify this one a little bit, but he says within five years they could have this ready to take astronauts and put americans back on the moon. >> was this more of an ambitious goal to build space colonies? >> he's talking about putting millions in space, setting up industry in space. remember, it was the trump administration this year that gave nasa the goal of putting americans back on the moon within five years, by 2024. but nasa is behind and maybe a little under budget so private industry stepped in. he's been working on this three years quietly. now it's been unveiled. we have a space race going on, a moon race, a business race going on, a lot of companies are popping up. >> he thinks he's going to make money on this? >> because nasa needs -- might need his equipment and from private industry. so you start building these things, nasa says, we don't have -- we're not ready so we'll take yours. we'll take yours and there is an industry popping up. >> and when it happens if we need you to cover it, will you go? >> i think laguardia to l.a.x. is a long flight so no. >> that's a hard no.
7:18 am
>> thank you, t.j. we are following a lot of other headlines including one of the hero students shot and wounded trying to stop the gunman in colorado is joining us for his first live interview on "gma." also this morning, that fake german heiress who swindled banks and hotels and her friends out of hundreds of thousands of dollars, well, she is breaking her silence as she's sentenced to prison. first let's go back to ginger. >> i don't know if you heard of this, it's called snow-mencement, like it's the commencement, but with snow. the university of boulder got one to three inches of snow and that's spectacular. the commencement speaker taking it all in. caps and gowns, looks like a snowball fight, all you want in life. joshua jones helped tackle a

hu at stake in the escalating trade war and more than 55 million americans from texas to the carolinas on alert for severe weather as that storm system moves east. overnight flash flooding forced water rescues in houston and drivers had to abandon their cars on a highway. and this is something you probably don't expect to see in your front yard not that far from here actually. two bears brawling on the front lawn of a new jersey home. the person that lived there capturing it on camera. the hoowner says he believes it was over a mate but i just find that kind of funny how he thinks he knows that. >> i'll be honest with you, i don't think it's a surprise if it is. >> just don't get anywhere near in the middle of that. we start with new developmen school shooting in colorado. as police investigate whether security guard may have accidentally fired on authorities during the chaos, one of the students who helped stop the shooter is speaking out live for the first time. we'll talk to joshua jones in a moment.
7:32 am
first to our chief national correspondent matt gutman on the scene in colorado. good morning, matt. >> reporter: george, good morning. in the chaos of that shooting, the police say they never fired a single shot but apparently that security guard did and right now investigators are trying to map out the trajectory that his bullet or bullets took, that as another controversy is brewing here. did a parent call the school board months before warning that conditions were ripe at the school here? five months before the gunfire erupted and sirens screamed at this s.t.e.m. school -- >> i have a shooter in classroom 105. >> reporter: an anonymous parent claiming to be the mother of a senior warning of a troubled school. in a document obtained by abc news which outlines the call to the school bhoord board, back in december the caller warned of a school leadership that ignored complaints of students self-harming and chillingly raised concerns about student violence due to a high pressure environment. all of it she said could lead to
7:33 am
a repeat of columbine. the school says it sent the document to the parents of the school's 1850 students but it tells abc news in a statement, while s.t.e.m. took the allegations seriously our investigation revealed no evidence to support any of the allegations raised in the anonymous complaint. but this morning additional questions about efforts to protect the students. law enforcement sources telling abc news a security guard hired by the school from a private firm accidentally fired at least one round in the direction of responding officers. his lawyer says the security guard heard the gunshots and raced towards them. the former marine acted immediately. >> he ran as fast as he could to the hallway where that school classroom is located. >> reporter: it's what happened then that's clouded by chaos. still, the sheriff has hailed him as a hero.
7:34 am
>> this was, i think, an issue that i would say saved lives. >> reporter: three students tackled and disarmed 18-year-old classmate devon erickson. kendrick castillo was there first, paying for his courage with his life. brandon bailey lunged also. also there, joshua jones. now, as it was with those boy, no one is accusing the security guard of running from the fight or shirking his duties. his company tells me schools tend to hire private security firms because they are far cheaper than badged police officers. now, we're told that guard has not yet been interviewed by police and it's unclear whether he'll face charges. george. >> okay, matt, thanks so much. we're joined by joshua jones and his parents david and lori. thank you all for joining us this morning. josh, i know you took a couple hits during the shooting. how are you doing right now? >> i'm doing all right, you know. my leg's a bit sore and i'm upset that kendrick died but
7:35 am
overall, you know, not doing too bad. >> take us back to that moment if you can, what you saw, what you heard, what happened next. >> you know, i saw the gunman come in the room, you know, brandishing a weapon saying nobody move and then i saw kendrick and brendan get up and, you know, i was right there with them. we, you know, we rushed him, kendrick pushed him against the wall. me and brendan grabbed him and threw him to the ground. you know, i stayed on top of hin off and, you know, tried to help kendrick, you know. then the police arrived soon after and, you know, it was harrowing but, you know, i got out of there. >> it all happened so fast. was it just instinct for you?
7:36 am
>> it was instinct after about the half second where i wasn't sure what was truly happening, because it was confusing, you know. you never expect that to happen at your school so when it does it's, you know, confusing and scary but, you know, then you go for it. >> kendrick castillo was first out of his seat. tell us about your friend. >> kendrick was a kind person. he, you know, always had a kind word for someone. you know, he loved his car. he loved his parents, you know. it was evident if you talked to him that he would, you know, help you out if you ever needed it. he was just a lovely person, you know. he had so many plans for the future too, you know. he was, you know, going to go to college and be a mechanical engineer so -- >> what a brave, brave young man.
7:37 am
you know, we've all, unfortunately, become accustomed to news of these school shootings. everyone we talk to says they can't imagine it will happen in their school but is this something you had thought about, had prepared for? >> i mean, it happens so often nowadays that i kind of couldn't help but think about it, you know, but i never thought about like specifically how i would react, you know. i would, you know, just say, yeah, if it happens i'll try and get away from the gunman, i guess. i mean, that's what we're told and then, you know, when it actually happened i had to make that decision that nobody should really ever have to make which was run towards a gunman or run away from them and, you know, i chose to run towards him. >> with that decision you likely saved lives as we heard from the sheriff. had you heard about any problems like this at the school before? >> no, no.
7:38 am
the school generally, you know, it's filled with, you know, a bunch of s.t.e.m. kids so they're all interesting to talk to and smart but none of them really give off that kind of, you know, i'm gonna do something bad kind of vibe. they all, you know, are just kind and caring for each other because they all understand what everybody goes through. >> david and lori, you have your son there between you. i can't imagine the feelings you have right now, relief, pride, but, of course, also sadness for kendrick. >> of course, we're sad for kendrick and his family and our thoughts and hearts go out to them but we're so grateful for the actions of our son and for brendan and for kendrick and for the school community as they have come to love us and honestly for the nation and the world as we feel their prayers
7:39 am
and thoughts. we can feel those in our hearts. they help us heal and we thank you. >> david. >> very much so. i just -- i'm proud to have a son that when faced with that sort of decision made a decision that i feel is the right decision. he maybe even saved his own sister's life. she also attends that same school. kendrick, it's horrible for his parents. i'm glad that my son came home. i feel so bad for them that theirs didn't. just everybody here loses. i'm glad that our loss is not as great as others. >> well, josh, you said it. you made a choice that no young man, no young woman should ever have to make but a lot of people are grateful that you did. thank you all for joining us this morning. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> so much courage, so much kindness, so much warmth and i hope everyone can grow and learn from this, we hope, right? that's all we can do. coming up next the woman accused of being a fake heiress breaking her silence as she gets sentenced to years behind bars
