he has israel tattooed on him. he also has tattoos on his chest and back. we have tattoos that say ortega. we have tattoos on him of rosary beads and hands clasped in prayer. these are pretty distinctive and i think somebody may recognize him. >> at this point detectives cannot confirmed if shots were actually fired. u.s. park police say it does not appear the white house was a target. the suspect in a deadly should thing at a maryland mall is dead. witness information led police to the 8100 block in district heights maryland. this possible suspect james coleman was shot and killed by prince george's county police in a shoot-out. he is believed to be responsible for the deaths of a man and a woman at a mall friday night. police found jeanine dunn and chancy green found dead in the parking lot. no word of a possible motive.
instead of running out onto the field, the entire team walked out arm in arm before the game players from penn state and nebraska as well as fans had a moment of silence to show their support for the alleged victims. it was a close game for penn state. they ultimately lost to the cornhuskers, but the score was irrelevant. as news 4's chris gordon tell us, fans just wanted a chance to move forward. >> we are penn state! >> the penn state band marched into the stadium wearing blue ribbons, dedicated to abuse awareness. these demonstrators came from ohio. >> we are here to call any victims of abuse to please step forward. i know it's very painful.
you will have support. >> student groups displayed signs and collected money. >> childhelpusa.org. it's a national organization for the prevention of child abuse. >> fans crowded around the statue of former coach joe paterno, whose firing led to wednesday night's violent student protest. paterno was blamed for not reporting to police assistant coach jerry sandusky for allegedly preying on young boys sexually. they are from chantilly, virginia. >> we hope we can move beyond the devastation we just had this week. >> and we care about the victims as well. we're praying for them and we're praying for everybody involved. >> security was tight at the stadium. all bags were searched. at one point there was a bomb threat. police on a roof. a special operations unit called in. but it all proved to be a false alarm. the football game was close.
penn state losing to nebraska, 17-14. >> it was a tough loss without joe paterno. there are a lot of lessons learned. i think penn state will have a long road back after this. >> there's a famous slogan here, we are penn state. it is on that foundation that they hope to build the future. that's the latest from state college, pennsylvania. i'm chris gordon, news 4. it was an especially difficult week for the paterno family. former head coach paterno's sanjay is a quarterback coach for the team. he broke down about his father. >> just how proud i am of him. dad, wish you were here. we love you. go. >> penn state's game without joe paterno on the sidelines was the first since 1950 when he started out as an assistant coach. it's 9:07 early on this sunday morning. you may know him best as number

he won the hearts of redskins fans winning two super bowl titles for the burgundy and goal. now darrell green is tackling a new opponent, obesity and other health issues. he's using a new social network to get americans in shape. he said it's very simple in tackling this new opponent. i have to ask you, as an athlete, someone who exercised every day you had pretty tough conditions as far as getting into shape. all of that comes into a
screeching halt, right? >> i'm over 50 years old now. so i can't run as fast as i used to run or as hard as i used to run but i can walk. >> tell me about this new mission. >> it's called walkfithealth.com. you can wear a small pedometer and it captures your steps, your calories, distance traveled and the time you've been active all day. >> i just took that one off my foot. >> and it is wireless. you don't have to plug in or write down anything, and you can come by our access point at your computer. all that information, that data is right there for you. >> we have a little demo for you. >> we notice we have friends. and i'm so happy that you accepted my friend request, mr. green. >> and we both haven't done much
this morning. i have 36 steps. you have some steps. you do have to go within 30 feet of your access point so it jumps up there. you're right. i'm able to communicate with you and encourage you. my sister is in texas. she's on there now in the southwest. she's retired, 31 years. she has high blood pressure. >> so the whole idea behind the social network is to hold you accountable. >> yes. >> 476 for me. i burned 20 calories. what's great is you can take the player out of the game. but that competitive nature you can never take out. i'm hearing from people on this network and it gets pretty darned competitive. >> hundreds and wives, friends. that's what i love about it. you can do it by yourself if you would like. but reality is people love to
interact with one another, create challenges. talk a little trash to each other and soberly encourage, hey, you have to do this every day. the cdc, all the big dogs in terms of the medical industry says you need to walk. and 10,000 is sort of a base. and one of the things that the cdc says is two and a half hours a week. so 30 minutes a day times five days a week. and you'll be on your way. and obesity, diabetes, people dealing with -- you can strengthen your heart. it does everything we need it to do. it's a nice easy base. it won't kill you. >> and if we look quickly, what i love is the whole idea of the support system. i need to get to stepping. see you on nbc 4 studio this morning which is just great because you have that extra boost and motivation. you have the people behind you watching you everytep of the
way so to speak. >> 24 cents a day, $84 a year. >> which is less than what a lot of people spend on their gym memberships on a monthly basis. >> i'm on it every day. >> you'll get a lot of friends after this. i can't let you go without asking you about the redskins. what's plaguing these guys? >> i had a conversation this week down in miami, an interview from miami. he said, hey, we only one won game. we lost to carolina who hasn't won any games. very disappointing to say the least. >> john beck the answer? >> i don't think so. >> all right. we'll leave it at that and hope for a win today. darrell green with walkfithealth, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> and we'll send it over to our key player of the morning show, chuck bell. >> all right. thanks, angie. good to see mr. green keeping everybody in shape and honest walking their steps, yes, indeed. good day for walking in the november sunshine today. a complete check of your sunday

to the american people. meanwhile, after struggling in the polls the past few months or so, newt gingrich has surprisingly made a comeback. he is tied for second place in the republican presidential field. at the opening of his south carolina campaign headquarters newt spoke outside the opening of a south carolina campaign headquarters and offered up his explanation as to why his numbers are rising. >> what happened was the first debate people said oh, he didn't back. the second debate, gee, he actually made sense. on the third debate, he actually knows what he's talking about. each week there's another layer. >> gingrich also credits his rise in the polls to his grandchildren saying they're his debate coaches. it's 9:35 right now. another twist in the search for baby lisa. the new evidence that some say the new evidenbig!hat some say big.
