And as he tried to escape, uh, you know, as I as I think about this and what we're talking with Michael later on Mike Munna, you know the community support the outpouring of concern. Over over the fallen officers and their families. Um, I know David Prince over Eagle gun range myself have talked about this many times when we're raising money for fallen officers.

Next on the WB 80 Thursday morning news we'll look at the first day of the special session in the Texas Legislature. That all happens.
