7:25 am
news tonight. nfl sources confirm to us that former seattle seahawks star richard sherman is now a san francisco 49er. sherman at one time was disliked by san francisco 49ers fans who he called vulgar and mediocre. this is video of what has been called, "turkey on the 50." after beating the 49ers on thanksgiving eve of 2014 sherman ate turkey on the 50 yard line of levi's stadium. 49ergreats like jerry rice took this as a slap in the face to the team. sherman though has signed with the team on a reported 39 million dollar deal over three years. keep in mind...sherman is coming off of achilles surgery and a procedure that took bone spurs out of his opposite ankle. in case you don't remember sherman. we want to take you back to this interview after the 2013 nfc championship game. sherman was feuding with then niner's receiver michael crabtree.
7:26 am
the seahawks had just beaten the 49ers.thank you so much...i'm the best corner in the game when you try me with a sorry receiver like crabtree that's what you get....shut it for you real quick. lob i'm done. 49ers general manager john lynch posted this picture with richard sherman and others on his twitter page this afternoon. he says, "hey faithful, gonna be a fun weekend." my guess here is that 49ers fans are willing to forget some of the past grudge if sherman performs like he has in the past. the san jose sharks in action taking on washington in the south bay. check this play out...timo meir...spin move....the shot...and it's a glove save....wow what a play right there. good chance for the sharks but they didn't get it.

( marty ) investigators have released 9-1-1 calls during the deadly school shooting in parkland, florida. they include the voice of a deputy who never confronted the shooter - and a parent telling her daughter how to deceive the gunman. cnn's alexander marquardt reports. natsot: "be advised we have possible shots fired. i think we have shots fired."it is a chaotic, heartbreaking and clearer picture now emerging from recordings and a new timeline just released by the broward county sheriff's office.natsot / peterson:
7:32 am
"make sure we get some units over here. i need to shut down stoneman douglas."that's the voice of the armed school resource officer scot peterson, who not only didn't go into the school to pursue the shooter, but who we now hear telling responding units to keep their distance.natsot / peterson: "broward do not approach this 12 or 1300 building stay at least 500 ft away at this point." dispatcher: "stay away from 12 and 1300 building."the timeline reveals that from the moment the shooting started just before 2:22 p-m on valentine's day, it was 11 long minutes before police went into the school, a full five minutes after the shooting stopped.during those first terrifying moments, 911 calls poured in.natsot / 911 call: "i think i hear gun shots "from inside the school, from people nearby and from frightened parents.natsot / 911 caller: "my son called me now, he said there is shooting in douglas high school."911 dispatcher: "douglas hs ok stay on the line for me and they said it's happening in

( marty ) that was alexander marquardt reporting. ( marty ) the trump administration wants to ban bump stocks...which transforms rifles to fully automatic weapons. the justice department's regulation would label the device as a machine gun forbidden under federal law. the move was expected after president trump ordered officials to work toward a ban following the florida school shooting. the proposal still needs approval from the office of management and budget.

news tonight. nfl sources confirm to us that former seattle seahawks star richard sherman is now a san francisco 49er. sherman at one time was disliked by san francisco 49ers fans who he called vulgar and mediocre. this is video of what has been called, "turkey on the 50." after beating the 49ers on thanksgiving eve of 2014 sherman ate turkey on the 50 yard line of levi's stadium. 49ergreats like jerry rice took this as a slap in the face to the team. sherman though has signed with the team on a reported 39 million dollar deal over three years. keep in mind...sherman is coming off of achilles surgery and a procedure that took bone spurs out of his opposite ankle. in case you don't remember sherman. we want to take you back to this interview after the 2013 nfc championship game. sherman was feuding with then niner's receiver michael crabtree. the seahawks had just beaten the 49ers.thank you so much...i'm the best corner in

deceive the gunman. cnn's alexander marquardt reports. natsot: "be advised we have possible shots fired. i think we have shots fired."it is a chaotic, heartbreaking and clearer picture now emerging from recordings and a new timeline just released by the broward county sheriff's office.natsot / peterson: "make sure we get some units over here. i need to shut down stoneman douglas."that's the voice of the armed school resource officer scot peterson, who not only didn't go into the school to pursue the shooter, but who we now hear telling responding units to keep their distance.natsot / peterson: "broward do not approach this 12 or 1300 building stay at least 500 ft away at this point." dispatcher: "stay away from 12 and 1300 building."the timeline reveals that from the moment the shooting started just before 2:22 p-m on valentine's day, it was 11 long minutes before police went into the school, a full five minutes after the shooting stopped.during those first terrifying moments, 911
8:33 am

8:34 am
were separate 911 systems used by the broward county sheriff's office and the coral springs police department, meaning they couldn't communicate with each other. coral springs police: "39 white male rotc uniform. burgundy shirt. last seen in the three story building north parking lot."the police spotted the gunman, but couldn't relay that critical information.natsot / sheriff's office: "does he know where the shooter is? we don't know but we are entering the building in front of the 13 building."these tapes - just a fraction of what happened that awful day - a glimpse of the confusion, panic and tragedy that struck parkland.

49ers fans who he called vulgar and mediocre. this is video of what has been called, "turkey on the 50." after beating the 49ers on thanksgiving eve of 2014 sherman ate turkey on the 50 yard line of levi's stadium. 49ergreats like jerry rice took this as a slap in the face to the team. sherman though has signed with the team on a reported 39 million dollar deal over three years. keep in mind...sherman is coming off of achilles surgery and a procedure that took bone spurs out of his opposite ankle. in case you don't remember sherman. we you back to this interview after the 2013 championship game. sherman was feuding with then niner's receiver michael crabtree. the seahawks had just beaten the 49ers.thank you so much...i'm the best corner in the game when you try me with a sorry receiver like crabtree that's what you get....shut it for you real quick. lob i'm done. 49ers general manager john lynch posted this picture with richard sherman and others on his twitter page this afternoon. he says, "hey faithful, gonna be a fun weekend." my guess here is that 49ers fans are willing to forget some of the past grudge if sherman performs like he has in the past. the san jose sharks in action taking
