7:02 am
middle school. we have a shooting at our school. >> reporter: when the sound of gunfire erupted outside of sparks middle school, mike landsberry quickly stepped forward. >> the teacher fell and everybody ran away. >> reporter: landsberry, a national guardsman and former marine, died at the scene. he was 45 years old. >> he loved everyone and wanted to protect everyone. it's hard on us to lose him. >> reporter: authorities say two students were also shot, including one who tried to helped teacher. both of those children are expected to survive. >> one was shot through the shoulder. the other shot in the abdomen. >> reporter: in all, police say 20 to 30 people witnessed the shooting, which took place as students were arriving for class. >> this is a student from sparks
7:03 am
middle school. can you please send police out here? there's a kid with a gun. >> reporter: students were quickly ushered inside and locked down then evacuated to nearby schools where they reunited with worried parents. >> i just was in a panic until we got here and we had to wait a long time to be able to see or know if she was okay. when i found out she was okay -- she's my life, you know. >> reporter: for some, a day that started violently at school ended peacefully at church as they remember a teacher who died a hero. police have not yet named the gunman or released any information about him, but they do say his weapon was a semiautomatic handgun. glasses here at sparks middle school will not happen for the rest of this week. matt? >> joe fryer, thank you very much. jose is a student at sparks middle school. his life was saved by teacher michael landsberry. joseoins us with his mother.
7:04 am
good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> morning. >> jose, how are you doing today? >> good. >> yeah? you're hanging in there? >> yeah. >> you saw and heard an awful lot yesterday, jose. take me back to the time you arrived at school. i understand you were just there a short while when the shooting started. what did you see, and what did you hear? >> when i was at school, i was hanging out with my friends, and then we heard a loud gunshot. we thought it was fire crackers. so then we looked back towards where we saw the noise and we see the kid pull out his gun and shoot the kid in the arm. then they started running. i froze because he was aiming his gun right at my chest, and i looked at the gun and my chest like he was going to shoot me. so i turned around and i ran. i heard a gunshot, and i thought he shot me. then i looked back, and he shot
7:05 am
a kid in his leg, arm, and stomach. >> jose, you could actually hear some of the conversation going on between that first student and the shooter, where one student said, why me, why are you going to shoot me. >> yeah. >> and what did the shooter say? >> he didn't say nothing. he just kept on shooting him. >> and after he shot these two students, as you mentioned, you were frozen in place, which is completely understandable. the shooter turns and points the gun right at your chest, and at some point mr. landsberry walks right in front of you and stands between you and the shooter. can you tell me what mr. landsberry was saying? >> he was telling him to stop and put the gun down. then the kid, he yelled out, no, like yelling at him. and he shot him. >> was mr. landsberry calm as he was talking to this student, or was he yelling at him?
7:06 am
>> he was calm, and he was holding out his hand like put the gun in my hand, like to just stop. >> maricella, this teacher, mike landsberry, didn't really know your son. never had him in a class. yet, he stepped in front of a gunman to protect your son's life. how do you even begin to understand that? >> i'm very, very grateful for everything that he did. i'm just grateful he was there to help our children out. >> jose, after this student shot mr. landsberry, you ran with some other students and you hid. i understand one of the students you were hiding with was crying pretty cloloudly, which is understandable. the shooter heard it and came over and found you guys. what happened then? >> he started yelling like, if you guys say anything about me
7:07 am
coming here, i'm going to shoot you. so then he shot twice to the windows. then it seemed like he was out of bullets, so he left. he had his case and he set it up. he was praying like, don't shoot. other people were like, we didn't see nothing, so he doesn't shoot us. so that's when he fired two bullets to the window. then he left. he heard the cops come. >> you did not see this student take his own life, i understand. is that correct? >> yeah. >> maricella, one last question for you. mike landsberry leaves behind a wife and two stepdaughters. if you could speak to his family, what would you say? >> i want to say that they're in my thoughts and my prayers today
7:08 am
and for the rest of the days. i hope that god gives them the encouragement that they need to move on and mr. landsberry, he sacrificed his life to take our kids to safety. i thank him for that. he's a true hero. >> thank you, both. i appreciate it. maricella, jose, thank you both very much. be well. take care of each other, okay? >> thank you. you too. >> our thoughts and prayers with the family of that teacher and the students who were wounded. also someone like jose who saw all of this unfold in front of his eyes. >> i couldn't stop thinking but for mr. landsberry and his heroics in that moment, we wouldn't be seeing jose sitting there. amazing story. >> middle school. happened at a middle school. well, we move to washington now and the problems with the internet rollout of the president's health care law. he calls it an embarrassment and
7:09 am
is promising to fix things. what are you supposed to do if you need to sign up for health care? we've got two reports this morning, starting with nbc's peter alexander at the white house. peter, good morning. >> reporter: hi, savannah. good morning. even supporters of obama care agree the onus is on the administration right now to resolve these problems quickly. as a former adviser to the president told me, if they do, this rocky start will simply be an asterisk in history. opponents are already saying, i told you so. overnight, republicans like ted cruz again took aim at the president's health care law. >> the disaster, the train wreck, the nightmare that is obama care. >> reporter: with others pouncing on the website's flaws. >> this thing's a failure. it's not something that you can just say is a glitch. >> reporter: more than three weeks into the turbulent launch into the affordable care act, president obama insists the law is healthy, even if its site is not. >> nobody's madder than me about the fact that the website isn't working as well as it should.
7:10 am
which means it's going to get fixed. >> reporter: among the fixes already in place, a tool letting consumers comparison shop without filling out an application and a new website design informing people they can apply by phone. >> at the end of the day, the buck stops with the president. he's got to get this website up to maintain his credibility with the public. >> reporter: while signups run through march, the next several weeks will be critical with december 15th the last day to enroll for coverage at the start of the year. a key adviser for both massachusetts health care law, signed by then-governor mitt romney, and obama care, remains optimistic. >> this law will work, and it will be popular. it's just going to take a while to get there. >> reporter: among those the white house is counting on to enroll, carmel allison, who nearly fainted during the president's remarks. >> i got you. you're okay. >> reporter: later tweeting,
7:11 am
thanks, barack obama, for catching me fortunate . fortunately, she is okay. kathleen sebelius is calling on to be fired. the president insists he's not looking to fire anybody. sebelius will testify next week. >> peter, thank you so much. for the first time, we're hearing from the programmers who built that website. they say they saw red flags. nbc's tom costello has that part of the story this morning. good morning to you. >> hi, savannah.e white house i exactly what the problems are. the associated press reports this morning that even project developers doubted that the website could be ready in time and for months they complained about unrealistic deadlines. we've also heard the system routinely crashed in the run up to the rollout. here's what's really troubling. when big companies like moo kro soft, apple, or yahoo! want to roll out new software, they usually do something called a beta test. that's where they put it out there for the world to test, but they warn everyone there will probably be problems. we can't guarantee this will be glitch free. the beta test period usually
7:12 am
lasts months and sometimes a year or longer. by most accounts, went live with only a few days of beta testing. this website is very challenging because it involves 36 states and linking and confirming data with other government agencies like the irs, the va, medicare, even credit bureaus. and we have -- all we have are outside estimates for the job that they're up against. by one estimate, they may need to rewrite 5 million different lines of software code, savannah. >> which raises the question, tom, how long this fix might conceivably take. >> yeah, and that's anyone's guess right now. the white house isn't saying. try to put this in a perspective in the big picture here. to give you a sense of how big this job is, imagine that you had all the possible variations for someone who wants to sign up for insurance. age, sex, marital status, income, kids, what state and county you live in, the types of insurance coverage you're interested in.
7:13 am
all those different questions and answers lead down different pathways and portals. it's like a huge tree that gets more and more complex. the problem is that the clock, as peter mentioned, is ticking. you have until the end of march in order to get the system up and running. they want to have 7 million people signed up by the end of march. right now it's a real question as to whether they can do that. you know, there's one factoid you and i shared this morning that i think is interesting. apple spent about $150 million to roll out the iphone, the first one. they've already spent $400 million on this website. >> and perhaps will have to spend more to fix it. tom costello, thank you for the insight from washington this morning. >> natalie's here. she's got more on those wildfires that have firefighters in australia very busy. >> that's right, guys. good morning again. hot and windy conditions are threatening to set back firefighters battling wildfires in australia. ian, good morning. >> reporter: hi, natalie. well, it's actually started to
7:14 am
rain here in the blue mountains, but not nearly enough to affect the fires. instead, we've been warned of extreme fire conditions, strong winds expected to fan a wildfire that's already blanketed sydney in smoke and could threaten its western suburbs. overnight firefighters went on the offensive, starting their own fires. in an effort to slow the progress of a blaze now covering an area of forest the size of urban sydney. this area of forest has been deliberately burned as a last line of defense, providing a buffer against the approaching wildfire. officials describing extreme temperature and winds forecasted for wednesday as about as bad as it gets. >> i've been fighting fires for 33 years. it's the most challenging scenario i've ever faced. >> reporter: among those on the front line, volunteer tim parsely, trying to block the fire's progress. >> if we can make some kind of difference to it here, then we will. >> reporter: he's an engineer who usually works on satellites, but the fight against the fire
7:15 am
has become personal. >> my sister lives here. we're trying to manage the family issue as well. >> reporter: the fire could threaten sydney's western suburbs if it sweeps down from the mountains. residents in the worst affected mountain areas have been told they have until midday wednesday to safely leave, which many are reluctant to do. >> it's your home. you just want to stay here and protect it, i guess. >> reporter: though it may be hard to protect against what's already the worst fire disaster in this region in four decades. if the forecasts are right, wednesday will see soaring temperatures and winds gusting up to 60 miles an hour. perfect conditions for a wildfire, natalie. >> ian williams in australia. thank you. well, smog is the problem in china. a city in northeast china is virtually shutdown. all highways were closed this morning due to the fog.
7:16 am
some reopened later in the day. fog also forced the local airport to close, stranding over 2,000 passengers. schools remain closed. the tsa is expanding its screening process to start looking at passengers before they arrive at the airport. according to a report in "the new york times," the tsa will use a wide array of government and private databases, including records like car registrations. the agency says the goal is to streamline the security process. two delta airlines flights had to make emergency landings monday night. a flight from syracuse to atlanta returned to syracuse because of smoke from a small electrical fire. another flight made an emergency landing in washington when a sensor indicated overheating in the cargo bay. no fire was found. a massachusetts woman is recovering this morning after falling on to some subway tracks. a frightening moment caught on camera. take a look at this. you can see the woman walk across the platform right on to the tracks below. makes you cringe. it happened near boston, about a
7:17 am
dozen people rushed in to help her, with some jumping into the pit to pull the woman out. there were no trains approaching at the time, thank goodness. the 31-year-old said she had fallen asleep on a bench and possibly ended up sleep walking right into the pit. she was treated for an arm injury. thankfully that is all. and an emotional moment between a father and a son also captured on camera. the english boy you see here admits he's always struggled in math class, so when he got a passing grade, he set up a camera to get his dad's reaction. take a look. >> is that real? >> yes. >> is that real? >> yes. [ sobbing ] >> the boy says a year ago he had an "f" in math, so this time he got a "c." it was a huge improvement based on that reaction. i love it. >> i love that. >> a good parenting moment. >> are you sure?
7:18 am
>> is it real? is it real? >> that's fantastic video. great, natalie. thank you. >> you got it. >> mr. roker, you have a first check of the weather. >> that's right. our friends in mexico, we're still dealing with hurricane raymond. check it out. you can see this is from along the coast. up to 5 to 8 inches of rain falling already. they're going to get more. show you what's going on, on the map, on the satellite. basically, we're looking at this thing, it is just churning off the coast, stationary, 40 miles west of acapulco. category 3 storm. could see another 12 inches of rain. closer to home, we've got the jet stream right now. it's going to open up the back door to much colder air from canada. we're already seeing some lake-effect snow starting to develop throughout parts of the midwest. we're also looking at a clipper coming across, bringing some messy weather. but the big story is going to be the colder air coming in. we've got freeze warnings, frost advisories and freeze watches from kansas all the way to ohio.
7:19 am
look at these temperatures. cold air. chicago today, 42 for a high. that's 20 degrees below normal. newbury, 41. pittsburgh, only 51 for a high. 11 degrees below normal. and that cold air is moving to the east and even as far south as mississippi and georgia. we're going to get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds. ♪ ♪ good tuesday morning to you. i'm meteorologist christina loren.

on your windows tablet, pc, or surface. that's the new windows: one experience for everything in your life. we're back now at 7:43. few things represent duty in our society like a full head of hair. at least for some people. for the 50% of people that suffer thinning hair even the hint of a cure is big news. now new research is providing what could be the best clue yet. dr. nancy snyderman, good morning to you. >> hi, matt. >> the research comes from columbia university. >> credible. >> they have found a way to clone human hair cells which create human hair follicles and create new cells. big news.
7:44 am
>> that's the difference when you take one follicle to one hair or use topical medicines. they took human skin, put it on mice and found that if you go into these little cells, you can get multiple hairs growing out of one little spot. so that means, especially for the over 60 crowd where you really start to see your hair thinning and especially for women where hair transplantation is not a very good option. you can suddenly think about growing hair in ways you couldn't before. you take one hair follicle and you get 100. >> so this sounds like it's a ways off. because at the moment it happens in a lab dish and then it goes to the mice and unless you want to put the mouse on top of your head, this is going to be awhile. >> this isn't going to be in your doctor's office tomorrow but it's a game changer in the fact that you can get multiple hairs out of one little spot.

we are back at8:. if seone gave you 40 chances accomplish your goals in life wha wou y do? that'she question that son of warren buffet asks in his n book. howard is here along with his dad and hson, b as we'll b b calling you throughouthe interview. >> good morning. >> i can't waito talk about the book. i have to ask you a litite polics first. you said about ts cent dt ceing crisis it was like using a political weapon of mass destruction. do you think real dame w done? >> well not much damage was done but we came closeo doi irreparable damage. that why i call i a political weapon of mass destruction. we're not using poison ga we don use the nuclear bomb. even when we don't get our way. it should be taken off the table.
8:40 am
>> as a business man, what d you think of the new health care ll out a the problems with the website? >> well i would have hated to have had that j myself. it will get involved. >> wel let me tn to you howa. you have written this book 40 chances and it's a serie of vignettes and e eas to inspire pele. i uerstand this concept has its roots in farmin you are a farmer. >> yeah, i learned a lon time agatha a farmer gets about 40 seasons, 40 crops. it changed my thinking about farming and life. it's a mind set that you hav 40 opportunities. once you get through school and you get a little experience you get about 40 opportunities, 40 years to accomplish your goals and i kid that i wasted at least 10 or 20. so i'm starting behind the curve. but it's a mind set. it's an urgency and believing that we don't have the time in the world to do what we need to do. >> it sounds like a lot of time
8:41 am
and not enough time. you ran out and wrote this book. it's 40 different stories and also very much commeplimented b your phone photographs. is it supposed to be a call to action? >> it is a call to action. there's different themes through the book, but one is to urge people to take more risks. be willing to fail and talk about how you fail and why you failed so other people don't have to follow your footsteps and then i think we talked about all the lessons we learned throughout our couple of decades of working globally and there's a lot of things we needed to do differently. if we were doing so well we wouldn't have a billion people going to bed hungry and 3 or 4 billion people without access to clean water. >> and your son howard, you refer to as hwb so i'm going with it. you write in the book as well and you talk in particular about some aid organizations that intend to do well but sometimes are working at cross purposes.
8:42 am
>> yeah, when you're responding in a disaster situation, sometimes there will be a lack of coordination because of the nature of how you're responding. but for us what we were really able to see is so many examples of people that inspire us and organizations doing wonderful work. our time in afghanistan together, all over the world you see folks dedicated to making a change in the world. >> warren, people are endlessly fascinated by not only your enormous wealth but your decision to, instead of spending it on fancy stuff, spending it on the world. is this what you had in mind when you decided to give billions to your children so they would do charitable work? >> it's been better than i hoped. it's been terrific. the money does me no good at all. it can have enormous utility to people around the world and fortunately i have three children that are willing to spend their lives working at that. >> do you engage in any luxuries at all? >> dairy queen. i've got an interest in a plane.
8:43 am
>> okay. >> that's pretty good. >> howard, what has it been like for you to be given this kind of money to spend in this way? i would think it's entirely thrilling and also overwhelming to think of the good you could do. >> it hasn't been overwhelming. it's a challenge. you have to be responsible about it but the problems are so large. i mean, i travel all the time and speak to thousands of people around the world and i have for a lot of years and you just see how many people have so many challenges. so me, it takes a lot of money -- money is only one part of the equation but it does take money to solve problems. so i will take as much as i can get. >> howard, thank you so much. and also warren buffet. also a good time to see you. the book is called 40 chances. we have an excerpt on our website check it out. coming up next, a live performance on the plaza from the hit band the fray.

it is 8:56. i'm marla tellez. bart trains are running, but only with limited service. that, of course, is impacting the roads. you are talking about the san mateo bridge, where it's foggy. >> that's the first issue. it's hard to see the road. here at the san mateo bridge. most folks are heading here and all the traffic headed to the bay bridge. a lot of folks had to hit their cars instead of taking a bus or carpool, so more cars on the road for this traffic tuesday, and that orange here shows you where that fog is impeding the view as well. 880 south. 880 north through oakland, an earlier crash also made things really tough. look at all that fog can and heavy traffic through downtown oakland. just starting to recover. fog throughout the east bay, and the north bay as well, and

roker, natalie morales, and willie geist. live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. welcome to today on a tuesday morning. october 22nd, 2013. it's a good, crisp fall day out there. >> yes it is. >> really feels like it. >> willie geist with al roker and natalie morales. talking this morning about the shooting in nevada. another school shooting. another heroic teacher. authorities trying to figure out what motivated a student to bring a gun to a school opening fire, killing a teacher. >> this is a middle school. >> yeah, and wounded other students before taking his own life. witnesses say sparks middle school math teacher, mark landsberry. >> former marine. >> yeah. quickly stepped forward to try to stop the teenage shooter, indeed, sacrificing his own life. both of the students wounded are expected to survive. the students were arriving for
9:00 am
glas class. >> how many times do we have to see the pictures? it's so unbelievable. it's heartbreaking to see this is becoming a monthly occurrence it seems. >> in 2013, 12 mass shootings so far. the year isn't over yet. >> eric holder spoke about this yesterday and he pointed out that number and it tells you, we have a real problem here in this country and it's so tragic. >> and the question is what to do about it? we have this giant national discussion in the wake of sandy hook and the outcome wasn't much. >> nothing. >> nothing happened. >> it almost seems like this is just -- well, this is what we're going to see. >> yeah. >> and that's really disturbing. >> and the answers are never simple. it's not just guns it's mental health. it's families. it's all kinds of things. >> when you have middle schoolers showing up to a school
9:01 am
with a loaded weapon. >> which begs the question, how did he get it? >> exactly. lots of questions there and we'll be following that story but another heartbreaking one. >> and again another story we're following, cyber bullying, this seems to be an all too common occurrence. >> this is a growing problem. chicago sun times reporting that a chicago mother petitioned twitter, the company twitter to reveal the identities between two social media accounts that have been bullying her daughter. on thursday, the mother filed a discovery motion against twitter that say it posted her daughter's photograph without her permission, the phone number, name, city where she lives. one posed as her daughter and published tweets writing things like my passion is being fat and encouraging other users to sext her. now can she have the identities revealed or does twitter have the obligation to keep them
9:02 am
private? >> the legal question is a huge one. there's questions like this about facebook. but a twitter spokesperson said we do not comment on individual cases or accounts for security or privacy reasons. they do have on twitter rules. in an area where you can report if there are cases of abuse. so they do refer people to that if there is an instant where people are being defamed or abused. but the question is if you set that precedent then what? you have to look at every single case that comes up. >> but, you know, one of the things that is the problem with facebook or, especially twitter, is that people can be anonymous. >> right. >> would they say these things if their identities were revealed? >> never. >> if people knew who they were, what they looked like. >> right. >> as they bully and castigate people anonymously, would they be so quick to do it if we knew who they were?
9:03 am
>> go to the comment section of any story on the web it's all anonymous and if you ever confront someone on twitter and you take an approach and respond to them, nine times out of ten. >> if you just say -- just approach them, suddenly when they know their identity is revealed, nine times out of ten they step back. >> most of the people doing this are cowards. >> that's right. >> well, this is an interesting case. tell us what you think. do you think this mother should have the access to the identities of these kids or whoever it is bullying her daughter? >> #orange room, should people be able to get information about people who are bullying their kids? >> right. >> they have to make it stop. >> how should twitter react? what should they do? >> we get this story every year about somebody is banning halloween. some schools ban costumes and candy on their campuses.
9:04 am
the excuses for this range from safety concerns to specific worries about food allergies to fears of breaching the wall of separation between church and state. >> we like to worship satan. we don't want to have that happen. >> our schools in our town, they're pretty much like don't wear costumes to school. we'll celebrate and afterwards the town has a great parade for the kids and all the vendors get out on the street and give out candy. >> right. >> but i do think -- it's one thing to encourage kids to celebrate, you know, a holiday or whatever. but halloween is not necessary a holiday. it's a fun, you know, public celebration. >> how fun letting kids wear their costumes. >> some people do see it as celebrating something less than wholesome, a pagan holiday. >> i think it puts pressure on parents to have to find costumes for their kids. some kids, my costume wasn't as
9:05 am
good as sally's. there's that element there. >> let them duke it out. >> with all the peanut allergies. >> there are non-peanut candies. >> yes but there's one reason to be cautious. >> a school in pennsylvania sent parents a note saying that wearing halloween costumes was cancelled because safety was a top priority. another one tried to ban halloween activities due to a mix of dietary and constitutional concerns. >> some of these costumes look really realistic. >> there might be a zombie at the school. then what would you do. >> there was a saturday night live sketch where he says the flaming torch costume. oily rags and zippo lighter. >> that's one of the greatest sketches of all time. the plastic bag with a rubber band. trust me. it's great. >> check it out on youtube. >> no plastic bags over the
9:06 am
head. >> so i heard we were clues on a game show. >> on millionaire. >> who wants to be a millionaire. let's see it. >> for the first time in his 39 years of morning tv, which host overslept and ironically missed the taping of his weather channel show "wake up"? >> was it willie geist, matt lauer, george, al roker. >> i know al roker does the weather for the "today" show and also has wake up with al on the weather channel. so i'll make d my final answer. >> and you are right. >> well done. >> how about that guy's knowledge of the roker portfolio. >> he knows the whole deal. >> "wake up with al." he knows what i have for breakfast. he's wearing an orange shirt. >> just hope he doesn't have your pin codes or anything. >> oh, man. >> the day before you did that i

9:08 am
expect to see. this is hurricane raymond and really we are watching this thing just like this creepy guy is watching me. but in any event, it's 140 miles west of acapulco. he doesn't even work here. 115 miles per hour winds. it's going to drop anywhere from 3 to 8 inches of rain along the coast and once that happens, we could see some flooding problems. so we're keeping an eye on that. we also have much cooler air making its way into parts of the northeast. that jet stream right now taking a big dip over the midwest and along the east coast and so look at some of these temperatures we're expecting. it's going to turn cold. freeze warnings, frost advisories and freeze watches in the midwest. temperatures, chicago, your high today only going to get up to 42 degrees.
