4:02 am
>> out of nowhere, the guy walked right past the front door and he is just shooting shots in the air. >> he paused for a second and just looked inside the store. i just froze. >> reporter: witnesses say the suspect was dressed in all black wearing a motorcycle helmet. officials say no one was injured. >> it is not an active shooting scene at this point. we are just sweeping the mall making sure everybody gets out in a safe and orderly way. >> reporter: security immediately put the maum into lockdown. many customers and employees hit inside stores until police could escort them to safety. this cell phone video shows people being led out of the mall. >> it is the scariest thing when you see this coming waiting at the door for you to come out. >> reporter: police worked through the night clearing the mall making sure everyone inside was safe. >> we go store by store, room by room and that takes quite a while and 2.2 million square feet. >> reporter: john miller says police in new jersey have run through active shooter drills that the very facility. >> they are literally familiar
4:03 am
with the territory inside and this dynamic. they have done this search in the training mode. >> reporter: police say they are unsure of a motive at this point. they are not sure why this gentleman decided to go inside this mall and open fire at least six times and then kill himself. police say he does have a history with law enforcement officials in this area mainly for drug use and drug abuse. but they are still trying to get to that question as to why he did this in the first place. as for the mall, which is on lockdown right now, police say the mall will remain closed today. ann marie? >> thank you. in los angeles, some are arguing that the gunman that opened fires last week at the l.a. airport could have been shot, as there were armed guards outside the security area. police say the gunman did not raise suspicions when he entered
4:04 am
the shooter. alleged shooter, paul chiantia looked like a normal person. >> tony grigsby can barely walk after surviving friday's shootings at the airport. police say 23-year-old paul ciancia shot him. investigators visited his apartment just outside los angeles and left with his roommate who drove ciancia to the airport but had no idea what was going to happen next. authorities say ciancia walked into l.a.x., pulled an assault rifle he hit in two separate pieces of luggage and opened fire. gerardo hernandez was killed, a tsa agent. grigsby worked with him and considered him a dear friend. >> only now it has hit me i will

4:06 am
coverage but said, oftentimes, they were getting a bad deal. >> while virtually every insurer is offering new, better plan, and competing for these folks business, i realize that can be scary for people if they just get some notice like that. >> the cancellation controversy has triggered challenges from both sides of the political aisle. the republican-controlled house is expected to vote as early as next week on a bill to allow inshune inshi insurers to continue selling policies that were in effect of january 1st, 2013. a similar bill introduced by democrats requires it. the president says his health care bill is designed to make the insurance market better for everyone. >> one of the reasons we took up health care reform was not just to help the uninsured but also the underinsured or the badly insured. another issue concerns website security. cbs news has learned that as
4:07 am was being developed, tests fell behind schedule. the deadline for final website security plan slipped three times, from may 6th, to july 15th. the final top to bottom security test never got done. an obama administration memo shows that four days before the launch, the government granted themselves the ability to proceed with high risk nothing can undermine public confidence than the fear of a privacy breach. you could have somebody hack into the system, get your social security number, get your financial information. >> reporter: for health and human services secretary, kathleen sebelius, said, at a hearing, americans don't need to worry about security on we know many are already experiencing security breaches. she is back for another hearing. >> another hearing.

4:09 am
>> reporter: so there is a message beyond virginia? >> mainstream, bipartisan, pragmatic leadership, bringing folks together. >> reporter: cuccinelli gave us a different take. >> reporter: why is he winning? >> he is spending millions of dollars. much of it untruthful. >> reporter: his campaign says he can win. some of the credit goes to president obama. his visit here sunday firmly tied mcauliffe to the disastrous rollout of obama care and fired up the tea party base. >> make no mistake about it. tuesday is a referendum on obama care in virginia. let's go beat obama care. let's beat higher taxes. let's protect our constitution and send terry mcauliffe back to the other side of the potomac where he belongs. >> reporter: overall turnout is expected to below, if there is a big turnout among tea party supporters, this election could
