and wearing a motorcycle helmet. officials say no one was injured. >> this is not an active shooting scene at this point. again, we're just sweeping the mall making sure everybody gets out safe. >> reporter: security immediately put the mall in lockdown. many customers and employees hid inside stores until police could escort them to safety. >> it's okay. >> reporter: this cell phone video shows people league led out of the mall. >> it's the scariest thing, somebody waiting for you to come out. >> reporter: police were swarming the mall making sure everybody was safe. >> we go store by store, room by room that takes quite a while for 2.2 million square feet. >> reporter: john miller said police have run through active shooting drills at this very acility. >> they are literally familiar with the territory inside and this dynamic because they've already done this search in the training mode. >> jericka duncan reporting. now authorities say shoop fired
six rounds from what appears to be a ak-47. police found a note in shoop's home. no to los angeles, some are arguing that the gunman who opened fire at a l.a. airport could have been shot if there were armed guards outside of the area. police say the gunman will not raise suspicions when he entered the terminal. alleged shooter paul ciancia looked like a normal passenger and had hid his weapon. bigad shaban reports. >> reporter: tony grigsby can barely walk. the tsa agent is trying to protect passengers when police say 23-year-old paul ciancia shot him. >> i turned around. there was a gun, he shot me twice. >> reporter: investigators visited ciancia's apartment just outside of los angeles. he left with his roommate who drove him to the airport. authorities say ciancia walked
into l.a.x., pulled an aassault rifle had hit in two separate pieces of luggage and opened fire. gerardo hernandez, one of the three tsa agents shot was killed. grigsby worked with hernandez and considered him a dear friend. >> only now it has hit me that i will never see him again. >> reporter: police shot ciancia four times and took him to a nearby hospital. his family released a statement through their lawyer. >> paul is our son and brother. we will continue to love him and care for him. >> reporter: ciancia left a handwritten note inside his bag saying he made the conscious decision to try to kill multiple tsa employees. but people who knew him say they don't know why he wanted to target the tsa. bigad shaban, cbs news, los angeles. on capitol hill, lawmakers are pushing legislation to address what's becoming a key issue with health care overhaul reform. but termination of coverage letters some consumers are getting from their insurers. susan mcginnis is in washington. susan, good morning.
>> good morning, anne-marie. it's those millions of cancellation letters received by americans that have consumers and members of congress here so upset. the president promised anyone who likes their health care plan can keep it. well, yesterday, he did express sympathy to those who are losing their coverage but said oftentimes, they were getting a bad deal. >> while virtually every insured is offering new better plans, and competing for these folks' business, i realize that can be scary for people if they just get some notice like that. >> reporter: 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 insurers to continue selling policies in effect on january 1st, 2014. even if they provide coverage obama care finds insufficient. a similar bill introduced by senate democrats requires it. the president says his health care bill is designed to make the insurance market better for everyone.
>> remember, one of the reasons that we took up health care reform was not just to help the uninsured but also the underinsured or the badly insured. >> reporter: another issue concerns website security. cbs news has learned as healthcare.gov was being developed crucial security tests fell behind schedule. the deadline for final website security plans slipped three times from may 6th to july 16th. and that final top-to-bottom security test never got done. in an obama administration memo shows that four days before the launch, the government granted itself a waiver to proceed with a level of security deemed a high risk. >> nothing can undermine public confidence more than the fear of a security and privacy breach. you could have somebody hack into the system, get your social security number, get your financial information. >> well, health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius said at a hearing here
last week, americans do not need to worry about security on healthcare.gov. but we now know that many americans are already experiencing security breaches. sebelius is back here, anne-marie, for another hearing tomorrow. >> another hearing, perhaps another grilling. susan mcginnis in washington, thank you. well, today is election day. a slate of political contests are on ballot across the country. the closely watched governor's race in virginia has become a referendum on obama care. as chip reid reports democrats are pushing terry mcauliffe in a tight race against a tea party favorite. >> are you willing to make your case every single hour, every single minute? >> reporter: campaigning for democrat terry mcauliffe sunday president obama said ken cuccinelli, a favorite of the tea party and a staunch opponent of abortion and gay rights is too conservative for the switch state of virginia. it's an argument mcauliffe has been making in a barrage of negative ads.
>> cuccinelli tried to ban common forms of birth control. >> even the pill. >> even the pill. >> ken cuccinelli is just way too extreme. >> way too extreme. >> reporter: mcauliffe, a former chairman of the democrat party told us his strategy in this race will help defeat tea party candidates nationwide. >> so there is a message in this race beyond virginia. mainstream, bipartisan, pragmatic leadership, bringing folks together. >> reporter: cuccinelli gave us a different take on the race. >> why is he leading in the polls? >> he's spending billions of dollars beating the tar out of me and most of it one truthful. >> reporter: his campaign says cuccinelli can still win even while sticking to his conservative principles. and his advisers say some of the credit goes to president obama. his visit here sunday, they say, 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 case, 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 in this election is expected to be low, so if there is a big turnout among tea party supporters, this election could be closer than the polls suggest and that has some democrats a little bit worried. chip reid, cbs news, arlington, new jersey. polls indicate incumbent chris christie holds a commanding lead over democrat barbara buono. during the debate, christie refused to rule out the possibility that he would resign before a second term is over to run for president. coming up on the "morning news," a survivor's story, one of the cleveland kidnapping victim shares the horrific details of her ten years in captivity. this is the "cbs morning news." >> announcer: this portion of "cbs morning news" sponsored by airborne, immune support, now in
