7:05 am
of severe storms today across the western plains. as we did through tomorrow, the severe threat shifts to the east and the snow will begin to lighten up through sunday in the rockies. we are looking for as far as 2 feet of snow. especially in the higher elevations above 7,000 feet. we could see some flash flooding with southeastern texas sunday and monday receiving up to 7 or 8 inches of rain. the flip side of these storms. dylan, thank you. >> now to a breaking story overnight. two maryland firefighters shot and one killed when they responded to a call for a person with a possible medical condition. bullets started flying. we have nbc's morgan radford with more. >> good morning, sheinelle. a veteran firefighter died after he was shot trying to check on a civilian.

7:09 am
humanitarian one. the pope is calling openly on european leaders to respond with human human humanity. simply by being at the camp, the leader of the world's catholics fighting for the cause of muslim migrants is sending out a message. this is a short trip. he will be gone in a couple of hours. it is short and symbolic, but significant. craig. >> b "yill for us in greece. thank you. to the race for the white house now. with the new york primary three days away, democratic candidates are out of the state. hillary clinton attending fund-raisers on the west coast and bernie sanders at the vatican. we have full coverage on both sides this morning. let's start with nbc's kristen welker covering the democrats. >> good morning, sheinelle. the optics could not be more different.
7:10 am
the pope today and attending a conference on social justice. hillary clinton in california attending fund-raisers hosted by amal and george clooney. this sends significant messages. it was a star studded friday night for hillary clinton. george and amal clooney hosting a fund-raiser in california. $353,000 just to sit with the frontrunner. and bernie sanders attending the vatican. he told nbc's anne thompson the opportunity to meet the pope was one he could not pass up. >> today was the highlight of the trip. i think he will go down in history as one of the great leaders of this particular moment in world history. >> reporter: late friday, sanders making good on his promise to release his 2014 tax

7:12 am
both sides has gotten heated in recent days. president clinton emphasized he was joking. as for the primary here. sanders officials acknowledge their climb is steep. their goal is to limit the margin by the secretary clinton win and net as many delegates. his path to the nomination gets tougher if he doesn't win in new york. >> thank you. >> let's talk about the republicans for a second. where new york is all but a lock for donald trump. but at a moment where every delegate counts, it will be a race to the finish for trump and cruz. nbc's katy tur is here with that story. >> good morning. every delegate counts because trump needs to avoid a contested convention where cruz could take the nomination on a subsequent ballot. that is why trump's team is beefing up his inner circle and focusing on scoring a big win in new york state.
7:13 am
the rules, but insisting he will come out on top. >> it's a disaster and not fair. we will win it anyway. we will have our 1,237. >> reporter: trashing the system and now echoing a chant before supporters. >> lying ted. he walks into a room with his bible held high. it's lying ted, folks. puts down the bible and he lies. >> reporter: the trump team sharpening its game plan in the final primaries before the convention. new experience advisers adding structure and talking points to the normally impulsive campaign. >> cruz talked about new york values. he said it with hatred to new yorkers. >> reporter: sources tell nbc news is the strategy is to appeal to voters who feel behind by washington without turning off delegates.
7:14 am
york, but after a tough 24 hours, cruz drew a crowd of 1,200 in rochester friday night. >> tuesday is election day here in new york. and new york, the whole country is looking at new york, right now. amen, sir. >> reporter: not a lock? former contestants who gathered in new york. >> we strongly condemn donald's campaign of sexism, xenophobia, violence and hate. >> trump responded calling the angry contestants want-to-bes. >> let's talk about the democrats here. you had the debate on thursday. you mentioned in the piece the optics here. sanders meeting with the pope talking about social justice.
7:15 am
out with the clooneys with a $350,000 a plate couples dinner. are they worried? >> the optics could not be tougher for the clinton campaign. that is why she scheduled that meeting with low income meetings. this is something the clinton campaign has to deal with. she has to go with the high dollar fund-raisers. bernie sanders gets in front of a microphone and says hey, accepted money. it states he is part of the working class. i think this dichotomy for the weekend. the clinton campaign doesn't think it will hurt her. are her potential republican challenger er r taking note? yes.
7:16 am
you look at the crowds with bernie sanders. these talk about this for a moment. bernie sanders. does he have a realistic path or is he a spoiler? >> the sanders campaign say they have a realistic path. they look at may and the states they can do well. oregon, possibly west virginia. some of the other may states. the reality is and we have been saying this for a long time. in order for him to win, he that's win bigger states. new york, pennsylvania, new jersey, connecticut. by big margins. that's why a loss here is so devastating because it is the first test he may not be able to do that. that becomes tougher for him. >> you have to flip the number of super delegates. we have new polling. nbc marist poll with donald trump with a commanding lead in new york state.
7:17 am
he write his op-ed writing about the rules that have been in place for some time. why pick this fight now? what's with the timing? >> it's very important for the trump campaign to appear like they are not on a losing track. it is becoming more difficult to get to the magic number of delegates they need. 1,237. by decrying the rules saying this is not fair, they are able to galvanize support and come off as still the winners despite the rules. what is really interesting is "the wall street journal" he wasn't calling out rnc or he wasn't calling out reince priebus. he has changed the structure in his campaign with more experience who realize he has to get along with the rnc and not alienate party loyalists who are often times delegates. he needs those delegates to
7:18 am
that does not benefit him. ted cruz is better organizing. he could do well on a second or third ballot. >> great conversation. thank you. thank you so much. now to the investigation into the tragedy at the palm beach zoo. the lead tiger keeper was mauled to death as she prepared for a visit presentation. the 38-year-old woman attacked by a malayan tiger while working in the area where the big cats eat and sleep. zoo officials say the keeper was known as the tiger whisperer. it did not appear she did anything out of the ordinary before the attack. medical emergency forced an unscheduled stop for prince. the 57-year-old entertainer's plane made an emergency landing in illinois. prince was rushed to the hospital said to be suffering from the flu and dehydration. he is back in his home in minnesota. in florida, a baseball fan
