6:35 am
their 42 year-old long time companion described as their boyfriend, died, when, and how , alex and mike? >> when and how, indeed. all right. students at cherry hille are planning another rally this morning in support of their teacher who was suspended. >> that teacher made comments about school security and safety in the wake of the florida shootings, two weeks ago, so lauren, he is a history teacher, is that right >> reporter: he is, mike. i want to see if you can hear this i'm on the phone with edward, edward can you hear us still. >> mike can you hear edward talking. >> yeah, give him a second. >> he is on a bus. look behind me edward is in a class, they are going to the fbi. he will ab way for school for that planned walk out. we were chatting. he was giving information about what happened yesterday in the school, can you chat
6:36 am
with us quickly. >> he still have us on held so far. >> we were chatting on the phone because his mother came over after dropping him off to school. i said were you in class the day mr. locke made comments. he was in class. i said what did he say exactly he sort of paraphrased. he said mr. locke said it vice possible that the school could ab tacked and his concern is that there was in security that is armed on campus and he thought that was putting students at risk. he took those concerns to the administration but he also wanted to discuss that with the students in the class but he did say this if the school was attack he would be willing to take a bullet for his students. the reason this is important i think in light of what has happened here because edward shared with me that mr. locke nearly died in the gulf war when he was serving in the air force. in this ap history class they
6:37 am
often discussed current events in the encloses and they talk about different things that could happen and, of course, florida school shooting happened just two weeks ago made it a relevant topic for the class. so because of his time in the air force he had that military background that made him concerned about what could happen at this school. edward says busies pulling off so are ward's leaving us, so he did tell us that he had not been back, he wasn't back in class last week that happened wednesday and thursday. friday he heard from other classmates that mr. locke was basically forced out for at least six months without pay. we cannot confirm that with the district because they are saying it is a personnel issue they do not want to discuss at all but students are rallying to this defense. edward's mother came over's shed meehan e-mail she sent to the superintendent of the school district and she spoke very highly of mr. locke. this will not than a story
6:38 am
that ends anytime soon. students are planning a walk out today, in the a protest but they will walk out and speaking up raising their voice about what is happening. >> didn't the administration say you know, we may take prom away, may not graduate. >> suspend you if do you this. >> reporter: that is a threat that the students told thaws were made to us that no prom, no trip to disney but they are saying, they are still going to do it. other students are saying they are scared of those threats. they will take their vice to the school board meeting tonight at 7:00 and run their concerns therey dent necessity fit is best way to handle this but not have been be quiet maybe we certainly offer this desk if you want to come in, principal of the school maybe one of the students hash it out, talk about what he said, why they don't think it was a good idea to talk about in front of the students. everybody just talk it out,
6:39 am
figure this out before it turns into some big mess. >> it sounds like it already turn into a mess. >> they could stop this mess if people start talking. >> it sounds like students just want to have a converse says. new details emerging about the sheriff's deputy who did not go inside to confront gunman at stoneman douglas high school two week ago. >> his name is scott peterson. his lawyer has released a statement on to why he didn't go inside the building and thomas has more. >> scott peterson his name and says his client has been unfairly described as a coward and he was following protocol when he didn't go inside that school last week the broward county sheriff's office say security footage shows peterson standing outside that school building while shooting was going on. he was asked to resign after report came out and now he is sharing his story through his lawyer who said peterson thought gunshots were actually
6:40 am
coming from outside and that is yes was standing there statement read allegation that is mr. peterson was a coward and his performance under the circumstances failed to meet standard of the police officer are patently untree. peterson's attorney say inform deputy had presence of mind to have school an mid straightors go to the video room to help locate shooter and give a description to the police. so once again peterson says he is very confident that surveillance video testimony will show he did everything mike and alex, by the book, so we will have more to come. >> oh, my gosh. >> there is always two sides to every story, of course. >> president trump looking at congress to move on school safety, he says he would have charged the stoneman douglas high school during shooting even if he wasn't armed. president made a comment during a meeting with the nation's governors while pushing for tougher laws and arming educators. >> you don't know unless you are tested but do i believe
6:41 am
would i run in even if i didn't have a weapon. >> president trump is continuing his push to beef up background checks, arm some teachers and increase access to mental health resources and ban bump stocks. >> unscripted sometimes. good morning, everybody, updating our breaking news out of west chester sky fox over the scene now of this nasty accident involving this box truck we had to pry someone out on one of the vehicles, southbound 202 at matlock street causing a major jam for folks trying to get in and out of west chester. we will
