5:35 am
they knew who they were looking for but because this is an ongoing investigation they are not sharing those details. no weapon was found at any b.a.r.t. station and to be clear, no arrests have been made. >> we first sent out an alert about the tanforan shooting minutes after it happened to receive breaking updates enable the push alert feature. tracking breaking news in florida. a 30 foot sinkhole has swallowed some construction equipment. you see it there on the left side of the screen. this is a live picture from orange county, florida, right outside of orlando. the good thing, no one appears to be hurt. but you could see those large trucks that have now fallen into the hole. our abc sister station reports the hole opened up overnight and the trucks just fell in. so we assume that right now people weren't in the trucks. >> hopefully. homeland security officials are echoing the concerns raised by congressional democrats about conditions in migrant detention camps. the agency own inspector general
