was found at the scene. now officials are saying that note was actually left with his family. officials are not calling it a suicide note it does express that an end is coming. >> i do not believe that mr. shoop thought he would come out of here this evening alive. it could have been a suicide by cop intention, but it did not appear at least at the outset from what we know now that his intention was to shoot any. >> that was the case unlike so many shootings, this is different in that no one was hurt. it was just before 9:30 local time last night before the mall was to close that shoop walked in and fired six shots. we learned that he fires those straight up in the air so basically in the ceiling. he was dressed in black wearing a motorcycle helmet. one witness said shoop appeared calm. >> looked like he was having fun enjoying shooting. i don't think he was shooting
anyone as far as human action. i didn't see anybody getting hurt. >> here is a live look at the mall. everything looks like business as usual but we understand that the mall is not going to open as it typically does because the investigation is just beginning inside. paramus police say hundreds of people, customers and employees were in lock down mode until early this morning when they were released and reunited. i'll have my next report coming up at 6:45. >> we'll check back with you. 6:03. federal investigators are looking to what motivated a man to open pir at l.a.x., killing one tsa officer and wounding two others. the fbi is.fá interested in searching the cell phone of the suspect, paul ciancia. agents want to look for

attention, if approved this would go way beyond what stay lawmakers and even the government has try to do do. if this passes the nra made it very clear that they will go ahead and sep in and sue to try to stop its implementation. it would prohibit magazines over 10 and require people to report lost or stolen guns within 48 hours, require firearms to be locked up when not in use. and would require registration for ammo purchase which stellar would have to keep on file. propo meants say this might help prevent mass shootings. even michael bloomberg chipped in financially but the nra says it wouldn't reduce violent crime or accidents and they are read the go to court. sunnyvale's mayor had this to say. >> the first night i believe the

boost. we'll see how this shakes out. the approach and the maps, we have a slowdown, this is partly due, partly caused the lighter backups because of these folks held up. the earlier crash at central and san pablo have been enough to cause a backup so past highway 4 it jams up toward golden gate racetrack, then you're okay toward berkeley and the maze. coming up from oakland we have a slowdown. the jam through el cerrito and the earlier crashes past the coliseum. northbound and southbound approaching high street caused disturbance. things are sorting themselves out. but we have distractions on the shoulder. we'll givey./ you another look toward the tri-valley. we have a good build for west 580, 84 through almost is slow. extra slow approaching the ge

poverty level, it's 63% of your income. and this is an interesting difference. if you have a younger child, the affordability factor, they ranked all of the states, california is actually pretty high up there. but for after school care, california is very low. number 46 out of 50. as your kids get older it gets a lot cheaper for someone to take care of them. >> you got to hit the lottery if you have more tan onea kid. thank you. >> it's 6:32. landmark legislation continues to claw through congress for the first time in more than 15 years. the senate is poised to pass a bill to give equal rights to lgbt employees. the bill passed a test 61-30. it needed at least 60 to advance to a formal vote. that should come later this week. it doesn't look like the bill has enough support in the house.
