7:13 am

7:14 am
po policy. yet this puts china on notice that things may not be the same under a trump presidency. now to a scary moment at a pizza restaurant. a gunman with an assault rifle targeting a washington, d.c., spot, at the center of a fake news story about hillary clinton. senior justice koernd pierre thomas is there in washington and has the details. >> reporter: this case shows how fake news can lead to a dangerous situation. edgar welch has been and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon. he showed up at the d.c. pizza restaurant to get to the bottom of what appears to be an utterly bogus story about child abuse promoted on the internet. he alemedly pointed the gun and fired the weapon inside the restaurant. the origin of this crazy story was a posting on wikileaks

7:32 am
shooting mcknight. this morning, he's not facing any charges. authorities suggesting louisiana's stand your ground self-defense law would play a part in the case. >> if he was man enough to pull the trigger, he should be man enough to take his lick and still be in jail. >> reporter: authorities say it started thursday afternoon when one driver cut the other off. two driving almost six miles before stopping at this light. gaszer's blue car in the right lane. mcknight's suv on the right witnesses report arguing. mcknight got out of the suv and approached the open passenger side window. >> mr. gaszer was in his vehicle when he fired three shots. >> reporter: the coroner said one wound grazed his left hand. the second endered his shoulder. it came in at an angle? >> yes.
7:33 am

7:34 am
you're joining us as a contributor. this is your first official day. glad you could be with us this morning. >> thank you so much, george. good morning. >> let's start with the decision of this sheriff. walk us through the steps of this decision. >> this process is not unusual. an investigative process when there is a shooting involved and someone is deceased. really involves interviewing witnesses, collecting evidence. trying to make an assessment. it's not unusl judgment immediately and to release suspect who is may have given statements, cooperated. but may later face charges based on the evidence that we collect. >> that's an important point, dan. shooter could still face charges. legally, the shooting could be justified. >> under louisiana law, your car is treated like your home. meaning if you believe reason pli you need to use deadly force prevent someone from entering your car or entering your home,
7:35 am
meaning you don't have to feel like you personally were in danger. like you personally could get harmed. you have to be able to say that you reason ply believed you were firing to keep someone out of your car. the fact that they found shell casings on the floor of the car makes that a relevant issue in the context of the inves investigation. >> what else are investigators looking for right now? >> one of the key pieces of evidence is, the distance. the trajectory of the weapon. how far away? is there gun powder residue? and video. there might be closed caption video from adjacent businesses. traffic intersection. cities will have cameras often times at traffic intersections. all of that will be more the comprehensive nature of the process. >> does it matter who started
7:36 am
it. the most important question is, what happened in the moments before the shooting? but let's remember. if it's true that he got out of his car and was somehow, eyewitnesses have said, he was out of his car, firing a shot. then this whole self-defense, the whole stand your ground doesn't matter. this is only a question of, if he can somehow demonstrate, in conjunction with the shell casings and other physical evidence, if the authorities believe h whole time and that he reasonably believed mcknight was trying to get in his car. not yelling at him from outside but trying to get in, then it's the possibility that the authorities could say, we don't think we have a case here. >> chief, there have been some protests. what is your message to the community? >> it's easy to con inflate all the shootings that happened. this looks like will smith's shooting in new orleans. like trayvon martin.
7:37 am
merits. we have to be cognizant of the condolences to the family. this grieving process is difficult. they're very anxious, frustrated, maybe angry. this plays into how the community reacts as well. i would caution those to wait for the facts, let the investigative process play out before you make those type of judgments, whether or not there are problems with what is happening. >> chief brown, thank you for joining us here at abc. dan abrams. >> great to have chief brown. will ivanka trump be the most powerful first daughter in history? plus, the hatchable toys. one of the holiday's hottest gifts. could they be bad for you kids? , pain from a headache can make this... feel like this. all-in-one cold symptom relief from tylenol?, the #1 doctor recommended pain relief brand. tylenol? when you have a cold,

time for our big board. where we break down the day's big stories. we're here with tom rinaldi.
7:40 am
what that means for ivanka trump. "the new york times" without a story that she could be one of the most powerful first daughters in history. jacob, you write about how all kinds of power broebers are seeking her out. >> yes, there certainly are. sheryl sandberg has sought her out. leonardo dicaprio had a meeting with her and brought a copy of his documentary. trump was pelosi on the phone right after the election. at the end of that, she began to talk about women's rights. he handed the phone off to ivanka. zh >> you talked about three progressives. lee lib rals. there is hope that she could be a moderating force on her dade? >> there's hope. whether it's realist sick more
7:41 am
does not look like climate change is about to be a priority for him. if you look at ivanka trump's brand, it's not been about hard issues. it's been about empowerment as a sales technique. you have women's issues that then take you to coat sales. and jewelry. >> let's talk about her brand. as you mentioned, she is a savvy businesswoman. she said she was going to be a daughter and not have an official role at the white how is her father's presidency going to affect her brand? >> i think she'll have more attention. good or bad remains to be seen. their audience is bigger than when he was on "the apprentice." obviously. she's got a problem with millennial women. when your far is the first president in history talking about grabbing women, you know, the way that he did, it does
7:42 am
message is the empowerment of women. >> there was a lot of backlash when that tape came out. thank you, jacob. now to one of the holiday's hottest toys called hatchimals. some parents are scrambling to track them down. there are questions about the product. child development specialist dr. elizabeth lombardo is here. what are some of the concerns? >> some that these type of toys interfere with optimal psycho-social development. we gave kids plox in the olden days. we thould construct and create something. or a stifd animal, they could develop empathy. these types of toys that spoon-feed our children may be interfering with that development. we want to make sure as parents
7:43 am
sflit just seems hard to believe this little guy could -- >> cause so much trouble. he's so popular. he's causing trouble for parents. this is a new term to me. toy guilt? >> yeah. yeah. and what parent needs more guilt, right? the first thing to remember as parents is giving in to every whim for our children doesn't make them happier. it makes them entitled. that is the best way to make your child miserable right now and in the are about gratitude. so practice gratitude as a family. have happy meal that has nothing to do with french fries. when you turn to the person next to you, you talk about what you admire in that person. remember happiness opportunity come from things. it comes from experiences. so what kinds of experiences can you create for your family. maybe new holiday traditions that can bring you closer. >> great advice. >> very good.
