charlie. >> good to have you back. a late-night shooting leads to an all-night search inside new jersey's largest shopping mall. the gunman is dead but no one else is hurt. >> here what's the scene looks like this morning. hundreds of panicked shoppers were trapped for hours inside the garden state plaza in paramus, new jersey. elaine quijano is on the scene. e elaine, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and margaret and to our viewers out west. the shooting happened last night just before the mall was scheduled to close at 9:30. witnesses and police say the gunman had ample opportunity to shoot people as he moved through the mall. >> the individual that was responsible for the act on thousands of people at the westfield garden state mall this evening is dead. >> reporter: exactly six hours after 20-year-old shooprichard shoop entered the garden state plaza mall with a rifle, he was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. shortly before the mall was set to close monday night, he
7:04 am
entered the building carrying the gun he stole from his brother. he fired multiple shots. >> he was all dressed in black from head to toe with a helmet. >> the gun shoop was carrying was modified to look like an ak-47. though he fired his weapon at least six times, he did not take aim at anyone inside the building. >> he looked left and right and said i'm not going to hurt anybody. >> reporter: store clerk aleen rodriguez heard the shots and immediately sprang into action. >> my first instinct was telling the manager, get the key and close the gate. >> reporter: rodriguez and 400 others trapped inside the mall barricaded themselves inside shops and closets. nearly 500 law enforcement officials aided by s.w.a.t. teams made their way to the scene and immediately began scanning the area. two hours after the first shot was fired and still no sign of a gunman. law enforcement officials began to evacuate the mall. >> we go store by store, room by room, and that takes quite a while. >> reporter: with more than 2 million square feet of retail space, new jersey's largest mall was kept on lockdown as
7:05 am
evacuations continued slowly throughout the night. >> if you have a loved one here that everybody is not only fine but thaw ear in great hands. >> reporter: just after 3:00 a.m., shoop's body was discovered in a remote construction area on the mall grounds. earlier, police had uncovered a note written by shoop at the family home. >> i don't know as i stand here whether his motive was to injure anyone. i can't say that right now. but i do not believe that mr. shoop thought that he would come out of here this evening alive. >> reporter: at some point last night a family member of richard shoop contacted police and provided information that ultimately helped police to locate shoop's body. the mall remains closed today. charlie, margaret? >> elaine thank you. senior correspondent john miller is a former fbi assistant director. good morning. >> good morning. >> so how do malls respond to this active shooter situation? >> well malls have come to the realization that this is not a phenomenon that seems to be going away. so they're starting to focus on
7:06 am
this more and more. in the case of westfield mall this is a place that got to this really early. a long time ago they developmented an active shooter program for their security very quietly, behind the scenes. but they're an israeli-owned company. we've had the chairman on this show. and they're very focused on this. part of their plan is a lockdown of the security command post so that they can follow the events using the video camera and feed intelligence out. the other part is that security people respond out to the rally point where police will respond with something interesting. a couple of the mall security radios so that they can begin to communicate with people inside who -- maybe guards who are hiding or trapped with other customers or may have a vantage point. and the third thing is that they respond with a full floor plan of the location. and this has been drilled into every security person's head not to think about it just do it. >> when you go to other country, you mentioned this is an israeli-owned firm that has control of this mall you go
7:07 am
through metal detectors in some parts of the world. >> the israelis -- >> why not here? >> the israelis have a law about that. when i was studying security there, they said you're the country that checks the packages on the way out of the mall. we're the one that checks them on the way in. you know, we're worried about shoplifting and they're wofrried about terrorism. >> right. >> are we going to see this every day now? you said to me as you sat down you're going down to washington to moderate a discussion amongst very important people. what's the question e? >> so the question today is -- and this is the critical group of virginia state university -- this is -- this is command and control in these incidents. if you're a town like paramus pd, they well practice this. or a small place or a large place. how do you execute the police function there? but i just came from the international association of chiefs of police in philadelphia
7:08 am
where i was a moderator on the active shooter panel. this is something that law enforcement is focused on because it keeps happening again and again. part of it is the tactics, and the other part of the discussion is why is this happening? and why is it happening more? >> exactly. answers we need. we have that other unfortunate to check in on now, john. thank you very much. because investigators out in los angeles are focusing on the anti-government views of the man who was charged with killing that tsa officer. this morning officials say they still don't know why the suspect chose his target. some observers say the officers should have been able to defend themselves. ben tracy's inside terminal three at l.a.x. where the shooting took place. ben, good morning. >> reporter: margaret and charlie, good morning. good morning to our viewers in the west. the accused gunman paul ciancia, is still in the hospital this morning. his lawyer says he's unconscious and unable to speak after being shot in the face at the airport. ciancia's family issued a statement saying that ear
7:09 am
shocked by the murder that took place right here in this terminal and some are calling for tsa officers to be armed. tony grigsby was one of two tsa offers shot on friday that survived. he wanted to talk about his fellow officer who did not. >> let me take one moment to express the sadness i feel in my heart over the loss of my friend ger rar doe hernandez. only now it has hit me i will never see him again. >> reporter: he was shot twice as he helped someone to escape the rampage. according to court documents ciancia's roommate dropped him off at terminal three in a black hyundai hyundai. the affidavit says ciancia was worried about the, quote, new world order, a conspiracy theory about a totalitarian one-world government. on monday fbi agents visited ciancia's apartment near los
7:10 am
angeles. they escorted one of his roommates to his car, also a black hyundai. airport police and the tsa are now reviewing security procedures at the los angeles airport. >> as much as we work each and every day to make this airport and others safe i'm sad to say but nothing will ever be 100%. >> reporter: a memorial was held monday night for gerardo hernandez. the union that represents tsa officers called for some of those officers to carry guns. currently, none are armed. >> we're not suggesting that all 45,000 tsa officers be armed. what we're suggesting is there needs to be another layer added, which would be transportation security law enforcement officers who would have law enforcement duties would have a weapon, would have the ability to arrest people. >> reporter: but the head of the airport police here says even if the tsa agent who was murdered had a gun it would not have mattered. that's because paul ciancia had his his rifle in his suitcase.
7:11 am
he pulled it out at the last minute and fired at that officer at point-blank range. charlie and margaret? >> thanks ben. new thoughts this morning over the troubled obama care website. a cbs news analyst finds ensuring privacy and security information is behind scheduled. it was delayed three times over the summer and final top to bottom tests never got done before the launch. all of that is adding to concerns about the safety of personal information on the site. jan crawford is in washington. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie, margaret. good morning to those of you in the west. technology experts tell us the website did not go through enough testing before it went live and they shared with cbs news several flaws that it could expose your personal information. and now we're starting to see real-life examples of what can go wrong. with critics openly mocking the obama administration about problems with, officials insist on one thing -- at least the website is safe. >> consumers can trust that
7:12 am
their information is protected by stringent security standards. >> reporter: but tell that to south carolina attorney thomas doog l. >> my information is out there and i want it deleted from their website. >> reporter: he and his wife signed up on the website in october but over the weekend got a disturbing call. a man in north carolina who also registered and was shocked to get their eligibility letters, including their names and home address. >> it's just a system that, you know, we've been continually told was secure and now i've found out it's not secured. >> reporter: a spokeswoman for the department of health and human services confirmed an incident involving the personal information of one consumer was reported, and we took immediate steps. we identified a piece of software code that needed to be fixed and that fix is now in place. but other fixes are not. software experts tell cbs news they have identified multiple security issues including with user names and pass words. we gave one technology expert
7:13 am
the real user name of a cbs employee. within second, he identified the specific security question she selected to reset her password. sean henry is president of the cybersecurity firm crowd strike services and a former assistant director of the fbi's cyber division. >> if somebody's got the ability to look at the source code and be able to reverse engineer that and identify what somebody's personal questions are, that should be of concern. >> now, house intelligence committee chairman mike rogers told me yesterday this is one more reason the website should be taken down and tested for security vulnerabilities. we're starting to see democrats make that point, concerns of course, it will likely be raised when secretary sebelius testifies again before congress on wednesday. charlie and margaret? >> jan crawford, thanks. well, there are national implications for the two gubernatorial elections taking place today. in virginia former dnc chairman terry mcauliffe voted early this
7:14 am
morning. he faces a tight race against republican ken cuccinelli. >> and in new jersey republican incumbent chris christie strongly favored against democratic state senator barbara buono. bill dailey is a former chief of staff to president obama. good morning. >> charlie. >> so here's governor christie saying on expectation of a win saying if you look -- if republicans are looking for a place where they can win, look at what happened in new jersey. is that the message that comes out of new jersey if he wins? >> if he wins and if he wins with the ability to bring voters into his campaign and republican conservative campaign, that traditional li have not been there over the last couple cycles they'll have a strong argument to be made that's the model to win on the national campaign campaign. and the opposite may be true in virginia when you have a pretty conservative obviously and tea party more aligned gubernatorial candidate may go down in defeat in a state that has traditionally been very republican now moving if not purple towards blue.
7:15 am
that's a stark contrast. i think if that's the case governor christie has a strong argument to be made. >> to charlie's point, the question is christie in new jersey will bring in black and hispanic voters. this is a republican winning in the blue state. has he proven himself to be the inevitable candidate? >> proven in new jersey but we're a long way away from a presidential campaign and he has to go through primaries that are not necessarily reflective of the voters of new jersey and he'll have to convince those republican voters as others have found very difficult, romney found out, a very difficult process. so he's in a strong position after today if he wins with the sort of victory you say. but it's still a very long way away. >> you see any themes coming out of the political environment today that might be a narrative for 2016 or 2014? >> i don't think we're there yet. i think there's a lot to happen between now and '16. the '14 elections obviously we have the entire house up and much of the senate. we have other gubernatorial races. that will be much more
7:16 am
indicative of people in two states i think. >> if you were advising hillary clinton today, and everybody's talking about inevitability, what would you advise her? >> there's really nothing she can do about that argument. i would just suggest she keep doing what he cease doing, keep a relatively low profile, which is impossible in many ways for her, but just not engage in the back and forth -- >> speculation about -- >> not only speculation in the day-to-day sort of political discourse that's going on. the american people don't want it all the time. and i think the biggest challenge for her is to try to tamper this thing down. >> and if you were the president today, would you be out trying to make your case or would you be keeping a quieter public face? >> i think the case for health care is very strong. and i think he has to be out there. but the most important thing, obviously, is what he has repeatedly said. that is get the thing fixed and get it running and get a lot of this behind him. >> to the argument jan crawford has been making in one report after another, there seems to be
7:17 am
problems at the heart that go beyond the website. and the president is seeming responsible because he's the one who said you won't have to face the problem of getting plans if you like your own plan. >> but a lot of this confusion is rooted in the ability -- in the inability of the website and therefore to move on from the original debate and difficulty. once that gets fixed, then i think the discussion changes as to the process of it actually working. >> good to see you. >> thanks, charlie. the vatican embassy in damascus came under mortar fire this morning. we're told the blast hit an area where no one was inside. it's not clear if the embassy was deliberately targeted. vatican officials say the embassy has been hit about ten times by mortar bombs since july. americans are paying the cheapest gas prices of the year. this morning aaa says the average far gallon of regular is $3.24. that's a drop of 23 cents from a year ago. price of gas may fall below $3 in as many as ten states.

7:27 am
we wanted to rethink that whole industry so we go and put out these sensors in each parking spot and then there's a mesh network that takes this information sends it over the internet so you can go find exactly where those open parking spots are. the collaboration with citi was important for providing us the necessary financing; allow this small start-up to go provide a service to municipalities. citi has been an incredible source of advice how to engage with municipalities how to structure deals and as we think about internationally, citi is there every step of the way. so the end result is you reduce congestion you reduce pollution and you provide a service to merchants and that certainly is huge.

union is calling on the league to uphold its responsibility to maintain a safe workplace for players. it follows revelations that miami dolphins player jonathan martins received a barrage of vicious, and racist, messages. they allegedly came from one of his own teammates. fellow offensive lineman richie incognito. mark strassmann is at the training facility in florida. >> good morning, margaret and charlie and to our friends in the west. we've learned that when jonathan martin first left the dolphins he never told the team the real reason why. he was worried about the impact on his nfl career and the possibility of retribution. but his agent told the team and that forced them to launch an investigation. the menacing messages were laced with racism and profanity. in one voicemail message, according to, richie incognito allegedly told jonathan martin hey, what's up you half n word piece of expletive. i'm going to slap your real mother across the face f you
7:32 am
you're still a rookie i'll kill you. the dolphins initially denied there was any improper behavior. after they were provided by copies of the communications on sunday they suspended incognito and asked the nfl to investigate. >> we are going to give as an organization our full and complete cooperation with the nfl. >> reporter: last year incognito was chosen for his first pro bowl and received the team's good guy award for cooperating with local media. >> hi. >> reporter: he also starred in this stadium video. >> on the field, players call me overly aggressive. >> reporter: played before every dolphins home game. encouraging fans to be good sports. >> please be respectful and civilized and be sure to 2308 low the fan code of conduct. >> he's a pretty nice guy. pretty cool guy. he likes to joke around. but overall he's pretty cool. >> reporter: but incognito has also had a troubled past. for four years he led the nfl in unnecessary roughness penalties. was released by the st. louis
7:33 am
rams after clashing with the head coach, and was chosen by his peers as the dirtiest player in the nfl in 2009. yesterday, tmz released this video, purporting to show incognito in a drunken rampage. [ bleep ] [ bleep ] >> reporter: dolphins head coach joe philbin said his suspension was justified and the miami herald reports that the dolphins have already decided incognito has lost his job for good. >> i'm not going to get into the specifics of what it was. but i had enough information, i felt, to make a good decision. >> reporter: the dolphins sold a special game program on halloween. in it incognito described martin as the easiest teammate to scare. incognito was allegedly the ringleader of this harassment, which means, charlie and margaret, there could be other dolphin players implicated as the investigation goes on. >> mark thank you. special correspondent james brown has hosted the nfl's today on cbs. he is in oklahoma city.
7:34 am
j.b., good morning. >> good morning, charlie and margaret. >> how prevalent is this? >> charlie, rookie treatment, if you will is widespread in the nfl. but of a benign nature carrying bags, duct taping guys to the goalpost, even buying meals for players. but clearly, charlie and margaret, this is way overboard. this is atypical and it's absolutely repulsive, quite frankly. >> james, i mean it goes against the entire concept of a team. does the league have a responsibility to act here? or is this something that should be handled within the team itself? >> no margaret the former what you said is what's going to take place. the nfl league office is sending their senior vice president of labor dollsy to investigate this as a matter of fact he's been in touch with the team since last week. i'm sure you and charlie are familiar with the term institutional control as it relates to ncaa colleges. this seems to be applicable here, as well. you would think the coaching
7:35 am
staff would have its fingers on the pulse of what's going on not only with incognito on the team leadership council, trainers equipment managers getting information like this. this has been going on for awhile. trust me there's going to be a lot more to come out about this. >> what will happen to both players? >> the dolphins would still welcome martin back with open arms. clearly he's not going back into the same environment. while nothing has been officially stated that which mark strassmann has indicated has been reported in miami is more than likely going to be the situation there. incognitos days as a dolphin, they're over. >> martin himself had come forward and made clear he was having some issues here and it really wasn't until he provided proof, or there was proof provided by other sources in terms of text messages in terms of actual hard evidence that any action was taken here. >> and you know what margaret it's a shame that it had to come to that point. look, the locker room is supposed to be as you indicated, team oriented. sometimes guys engage in juvenile kinds of actions,
7:36 am
sophomoric for sure. but team leaders can usually tell if there's a player who's reached his limit, and now it's getting overboard. these team leaders will step in. shannon sharpe my colleaguen the nfl today talked about that. he's one of the biggest jokesters on our team. they can always tell if you're getting to the edge of that line, please back off the player, and it's clear that line was crossed a number of times with jonathan martin. >> clearly. pharmaceutical giant johnson & johnson is revolving one of the biggest health care fraud cases in u.s. history. the company will pay the justice department $2.2 billion after charges of false marketing for one of its most popular drugs. but as bob orr reports, the massive settlement may not lead to much change. >> reporter: the justice department alleges johnson & johnson boosted sales by paying millions of dollars in kickbacks to pharmacists and doctors who purchased the drug risperdal to patients who did not need it. risperdal was approved by the fda to treat schizophrenia. but u.s. attorney carmen ortiz
7:37 am
says risperdal was widely prescribed for unapproved uses. >> the companies promoted it and sold it and induced others to buy it so kickback schemes and other inducements to treat the elderly, who were suffering from alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. to treat children and also to treat the disabled. >> reporter: doctors are permitted to prescribe medicines for virtually any use. but pharmaceutical companies cannot promote their drugs for treatment beyond those approved by the food and drug administration. critics say big drug companies look at justice department fines simply as the cost of doing business. >> it's really like a tax to these companies, to pay this money ten years later while they've already been selling the drug for ten years and reaping those profits. so it's not enough of a disincentive for them to stop this behavior. >> reporter: in paying more than $2 billion, johnson & johnson resolves criminal and civil allegations, involving the marketing of risperdal and two other drugs. the company denied many of the
7:38 am
government's allegations. but in a statement said it remains committed to working with the u.s. food and drug administration to ensure greater clarity. it's the third largest pharmaceutical fraud settlement in the past five years. pfizer paid 2.3 billion in 2009. and glaxosmithkline paid $3 billion in 2012. to settle 1i8 similar claims. attorney general eric holder said drug manufacturers must pay a price for putting profits ahead of public welfare. >> the alleged conduct is shameful. and it is unacceptable. it shows reckless indifference to the safety of the american people. >> for "cbs this morning," bob orr in washington. there are millions of reviews posted on but charlie, no critic quite like this one. why the wife of amazon founder is blasting one of the very products sold on the site. that's next on "cbs this morning."

in that one. you can see the delays growing southbound and big backups from san leandro northbound. another bad commute that westbound 580 ride really stacked up through the altamont pass and the livermore valley. that is your latest "kcbs traffic." for more on your warming forecast, here's lawrence. >> yeah, looking good outside to start the day a lot of sunshine all the way to the coastline and i think it's going to stick around. in fact, today looking good over russian hill toward the golden gate bridge. we have clear skies there. the temperatures have been bouncing around a bit this morning. an offshore wind 40s and 50s in most spots but almost 60 in livermore. by the afternoon we'll find plenty of 70s especially in the valleys maybe even mid-70s in the warmest spots. 60s and 70s around the bay. and then some low 60s a little cool at the coastline but should be plenty of sunshine. next couple of days, even a little warmer. then we'll cool down more clouds on thursday. toward the weekend clouds gather on sunday, chance of showers by monday. when our little girl was born, we got a subaru. it's where she said her first word.

♪ welcome back to "cbs this morning." coming up in this half hour simon baker known for being one of the sexiest men alive. the fans of the "the mentalist" want him alive. will the mystery of the red john finally be revealed? he shows us what's in store for the new season. and a man with a lot on his plate, he's 103 years old and never stays home for dinner. you'll see how he makes fine dining a nightly tradition even now. that's ahead. in 16 years of professional basketball, julius erving scored more than 30,000 points and won an nba title, but the way erving played made him legendary. >> ma loan passes going to be
8:31 am
stolen, yes, he's got it. rock the baby to sleep and slam dunk. >> dr. j. could ga value niez a crowd like few others. he revolutionized the game with thundering dunks. on the court the hall of famer battled with greats like larry bird and magic johnson. he writes about his life off the court in a new memoir called "dr. j" the autobiography. welcome. good to have you here. >> thank you, charlie. >> we'll talk basketball in a moment. >> okay. >> did you leave anything out? >> it took two years to do the project, so we finished less than a year ago. and i'm still here. so i guess the last year's left out. maybe part of the seventh decade. i think we got six decades. >> i'm just teeing this up for
8:32 am
gayle. >> okay. okay. >> listen, i don't know where to begin. because you were so candid and so brutal and so raw. i really want to start with the women question. you say in your book admit there's something wrong with how you treat women. what do you mean by that? you tell stories about eight different women in eight different days. i'm going how does anybody do that. you talk about being an unfaithful husband, not a good father. and this is all on the first page. you really wanted to be brutally honest in this book. >> well, in the preface, you know, we talk about, you know look at six decades of life. >> yeah. >> and the roller coaster ride associated with it. there are ups and downs. for me if i were going to sum it up i'd say that the times in which i erred or erred on the side of doing the right thing, it was a lot less consequential than erring on the side of you know trying to do the wrong
8:33 am
thing. and trying to do the wrong thing's probably a little too strong because sometimes you end up doing the wrong thing and you're not attempting to do that. >> uh-huh. >> you just using the judgment at the moment. >> but, listen my mouth fell open a couple times because you talk about your relationship with your first wife turquoise, where you said i only hit her in self-defense. i only hit her when i was attacked. and i thought that julius erving, you are a gazillion feet tall. were you justifying your behavior or this is how you were behaving at the time? >> this isn't a justification ever. i've always taught my children i have four sons and three daughters, you know that's an off limits area. >> yeah. >> so in a 30-year relationship there are times when you know things happened that you regret later on. so i'm not a proponent of
8:34 am
hitting anybody, male or female. i don't fight. and i've had very few in my life. and sometimes, you know if you're backed totally into a corner, even if you're an animal you're probably going to scratch and claw and get freedom. >> so what's the lesson from this? >> i think you got to leave it alone. i think you have to definitely create the space between the parties and, you know be the bigger person. >> but what's the overall lesson for you? i got to talk about your daughter alexandra stevenson. you write very candidly that if her mother hadn't been wearing braces, maybe she wouldn't be born. >> i actually didn't say that. >> you didn't? >> no i didn't say if she department wear braces she wouldn't be born. >> okay. >> that's been paraphrased. >> okay. >> of what was really said. >> okay. but it had to do with how you two got together. and you said that alexandra stevenson, who is now a semi-professional tennis player
8:35 am
she's a public person and you regret maybe that you weren't more involved in her life when she was growing up. >> no question. when alexandra was born and i was somewhat informed that i was her father then you know it became a legal issue. and the agreement was reached and, you know, it was reached by the parties and lawyers. so, yeah there was a short end of the stick and probably alexandra and i got the short end of the stick. >> but you own up to it. you own up to all of your stuff i have to say and nothing can take away from your basketball career. >> which i want to talk about. >> nothing can take away from that. >> the good and bad and everything off the court and on the court, one of the many things for me who as a huge basketball fan as you know. >> yes. >> i am too. i am too.

you may not feel that at this moment, but i am. >> he actually wrote it so you give him credit for putting it out there. >> yeah. >> pete marvich the greatest player. >> actually kareem abdul-jabbar. the creativity, the genius associated with him. >> think of who you played with in terms of bird and johnson. >> and jordan. >> he had more talent pound for pound than anybody ever played? >> well i think the use of his talent, there are a lot of guys who have abundance of talent they don't always get to use it. i think he played for freedom. he played for his dad and in college. >> in raleigh, north carolina. >> you know. so he had a free hand. how do you have 44 points a game unless you have carte blanche. >> who do you enjoy watching now? >> i like watching kevin durant play. i like watching lebron play.
8:37 am
i like my sixers off to a great start. i'm a fan of basketball, but i'm not a cheerleading type of fan. >> when michael jordan was the best player that that was disrespectful to you. >> yeah i thought it was. at the time michael was a young player. he come back from missing the season and he scored 63 points on boston in the playoff game and larry and i and the boston-philly rivalry had been extended. larry was the next torch bearer. you know, we had -- i think he had his hands full with me and with the 76ers. so to just kind of bypass us and maybe it was part of a psychological ploy to diffuse rivalry a little bit, but i did say that. >> did you play veteran short shorts? >> i never played in long shorts. so i don't know. >> should short shorts come back? >> that's a question for the female fans to write letters to
8:38 am
commissioners. the new commissioner, let that be his first duty. see if adam can take care of the shorts problem. >> if it is a shorts problem. >> do you wish you were playing as a rookie now because of all the league has become? >> yeah. if i was starting all over i'd have a lot of fun. probably do things a little differently. but for most of the things -- >> so would we all. great to see you dr. j. >> thank you. it's an interesting read. i will say that. it goes on sale today.
