Outside Saint Mary's hospital. Also president trop is welcoming the first president to the White House. The pomp and circumstance will be on or display if you out mallet he's standing by on the north lawn of the white topic about the life report. But we began with the latest on the manhunt for the suspect and that leaders mass shooting that left four people dad. This time at a Waffle House the national Timothy RA BC here rest up toward the flight from not Waffle House aerial definitely if. Snack cake and it's so this investigation is ongoing this is day to. That police the ATF and other agencies are now working together to try to find. That suspect we know that just moments ago they announced their huddling together in their efforts and then go. Door to door continue this effort to go door to door to warn residents to be on high alert they're also searching shed. And all of the heavily wooded areas in this neighborhood there are a lot of that we've driven around here but I want to show you this is the theme that that's a Waffle House where police say 29 year old. Travis ranking opened fire. They now believe ranking is believed to be armed and extremely dangerous police say he pulled up here around 320. Sunday morning. He was wearing nothing but a green jacket and then wielding that ar fifteen assault rifle opened fire. Outside earth the swap out all of that gunfire piercing the windows killing two people outside. Then he went inside continuing that Rampage killing another two victims. Before James shot junior recognize that when a gunman took a brief to look down try to re arm himself. He tackles that suspect for relatively. To the ground took the rifle away from him threw it over the counter and it's to stop the bloodshed temporarily out shop course being hailed. A hero but then the suspect took off on bullet to his apartment which is near here. And plea they got the lack late that he was seen apparently and putting a pair pants on perhaps grabbing another weapon. Now we know he's been on the run again today we're also finding out Mort panic about it. Packed week we've had several run in with the law half the mental health issues. Including arrests by the Secret Service and when he seventeen for trespassing on on restricted area of the White House. It and it's an alarming new details coming to light about this suspect police even get mental state. If they don't have a possible motive yet for this. All right area arrests have live there in Nashville Tennessee with the latest on that men and aerial thank you so much for your reporting a stern out of Washington where president Koppel host French president Emanuel macro for a big state visit. RA BT Alex Mallon is live there at the White House Alex the big they have for the trumps and the crowds. Yeah I mean and where we're about to see the president engage in an all out charm offensive when he welcomes French president were crone. And his wife the White House later this afternoon now almost immediately upon their arrival here they're going to go. Two Mount Vernon in Virginia that's George Washington's estate and that's part of the White House basically emphasizing that France is the United States' oldest ally. Now after they visit Mount Vernon they're going to be eating dinner there and then we can expect to see them go down to Washington's tomb to pay their respects to America's first president. And tomorrow I think is where rules CB most pageantry that's where we're gonna see bill the trump White House host its real first state visit. And that includes the welcome on the South Lawn when the president welcomes French president McCraw. And we've we're going to see a big military honor guard. A 21 gun salute and then after that they'll both go inside hold joint meetings and then a joint press conference for the were both will take questions. From the French and American press here. At the White House and then on Wednesday. French president Lecrone wraps up his visit when he delivers a joint of. The congress. There appears to be that unlikely friendship here between president trump. President macro and here he's getting the statement that the state dinner there'll and other red carpet. German chancellor she's also been that in this week but no statement that no state dinner for her what she's getting snubbed here. I don't know we can count is this another B probably odd to see the White House hosts two back to back state visit. But this is definitely the president emphasizing that he as a special friendship with a manual Lecrone and it's an unlikely friendship. We saw the president initially when the prince president Lecrone. Was in his election campaign seemingly be the seemingly throw his support behind his opponent Marion Le pen who was that far right. Nationalist front leader but the president ended up and embracing a Lecrone quite literally you saw what that means that ex extra long handshake that you. Engaged in in their first meeting and since then we've seen French president micron welcome. The president in Paris for that the steel day celebrations where he hosted them. And that Eiffel Tower dinner with his wife so this is definitely grown into a blossoming romance is what they're calling here at the White House. A presidential broke Mets are right so are turning to other news when it comes to you what happened this weekend out we know that that First Lady. On the former presidents and former first ladies were all in Texas honoring Barbara Bush at her funeral this weekend but the president whether there he was in South Florida. And he was sweetie you're sweetie mostly about his personal attorney Michael Cohen in that federal criminal investigation. That's right the president was reacting to a New York Times story over the weekend that suggested they Cohen might be susceptible to potentially. Flipping and supporting. You federal prosecutors who might be investigating the president as a part of their efforts going after Michael Cohn now the president pushed back on that said. That Cohen is a loyal fighter for him and he would never you know attacked Michael Cohen is the way to the New York Times reported. I'm but essentially. I think it he is him expressing confidence that Michael Coen wouldn't flip seem to suggest that he would he might have something to flip on. So the White House is pushing back on that this morning Sarah Sander says the president has nothing to hide but also the president. Tweeted over the weekend about his potential pardoning a former heavyweight boxer Jack Johnson. Aides essentially that the White House. Is pushing back that he's floating these new pardons. Last week to Scooter Libby and now to Jack Johnson as a way to as a potentially message Michael Cohen. And saying if there's anything that happens you all be looking after you. I think tech come out of nowhere for a lot of folks we're monitoring the president's tweets over the weekend. I'm as far as nomination news Mike Pompeo the CIA directors trying to become the next secretary of state that a little problem the senate right. Yeah wolf that he is in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today for a vote and now all of bio all indications are reporting is that senator Rand Paul. A Republican on that committee will vote against Pompeo and that you will not have enough votes to gain approval from the committee. Now that won't stop him from going in front of the entire senate for vote. But it would be the first time that a nominee for a cabinet position goes in front of this that sent her a senate committee and does not get approval before getting. And then going from the senate for a full vote since 1945. Tenet. Incredible artful ABC's outs Mallon live at the White House thanks for your boarding house we appreciate it.
