i'm miguel marquez in for john berman who hat day off. >> i'm zoraida sambolin. tuesday, november 5th. 5:00 a.m. in the first. first, we start with gunfire. witnesses say a man opened in black opened fire at 9:30 last night inside the westfield garden state plaza mall in paramus. after a massive search we are finding out the shooter's body has just been found. late-breakinging details and get straight to nic robertson who is live in paramus. >> reporter: police found the body of the man who went into the mall shooting, richard shoop's body was found at 3:20 a.m. this morning in the back of the shopping mall behind a building area under construction some distance where he entered the mall six hours earlier. police say he took his own life,
that he was probably laying dead there for some hours. he had entered the shopping mall, gone through the mall and arrived at a place where he took his own life. i'm joined by the prosecutor here, john mullanely. can you talk us through exactly what happened tonight? >> some time after 9:00 p.m., mr. shoop came in dressed all in black and wearing a black motorcycle helmet with his rifle and shortly after entering, let go about a minimum of six rounds or maybe more. we have to look at it yet. in an area he could have easily hit individuals but chose not to. based upon what our investigation disclosed over the hours that followed, we believe that he went in there with the intent to either be shot by police, which we call suicide or to take his own life, which he ultimately did. >> what have you learned about this young man? >> a troubled person. someone that, you know, has a
history of drug use. you wouldn't think that at age 20, age 20, how much can you do in your life, but in his life, he at least thought that he had reached a point on where there was no recourse other than to take his own life. >> reporter: you've talked to his family. you talked earlier indications from what they told you, you're not surprised that it ended this way. >> i'm not and they are not. they were helpful. they gave us some information that allowed us to, you know, begin to put some pieces together on this. we still didn't know whether it was mr. shoop until 3:20 this morning until we saw his body but we had an indication but we also believe he was in the mall. that was very, very important. you know, somebody comes in and shoots up a mall and then they leave, that would have been much worse. >> reporter: 400 law enforcement officers going through the mall. no injuries, apart from his. you said very clearly that he didn't go in there to kill anyone. what was he shooting at? >> random.
a couple of shots into the ceiling. a shot into an escalator, one into a facade area for one of the retail stores. he had more than opportunity. there were thousands of people in this mall at 9:20 tonight and many of them were within five feet from him. he clearly had the ability to shoot an individual but he did not. >> a disturbed man that took his own life. prosecutor john mulanelli, thank you very much. the details we are beginning to learn. a long night for law enforcement officers here. 400 people or so barricaded into their stores. police still at this time going through the shopping mall and making sure they have accounted for everyone. the mall will remain closed today. >> nic, are they certain nobody else was involved? because earlier reports when you were listening to the eyewitnesses there, they were saying they heard a lot of shots and thought maybe there were some additional people and feel confident now this was a lone
gunman? >> reporter: confident a lone gunman. he had taken his brother's weapon, his brother owned the weapon legally. it was a modified rifle rifle, ..22-caliber meant to look like an ak-47. a serious weapon stolen from his brother but he is believed to be the only person involved in this. >> nic robertson, great to have you there for us. thank you. now to our other big story this morning. election day. voters are heading to the polls to decide a number of state and local races that could impact the political landscape across the country. maybe the most notable contest is chris christie expected to win the second term as new jersey governor. he is mentioned as a possible candidate in 2016 for the presidency and things he did at the campaign stop did lilve to quiet those whispers. >> i need you tomorrow night.
i need you badly. we have to liver tomorrow, everybody. the whole country is watching, everybody. the whole country is watching and they are disspirited the way the government works. they look at the mess in washington, d.c. they say nobody cares about the rest of us and nobody cares about the folks any more. >> another big showdown for the top job in the swing state of virginia. terry mcauliffe is favored in the governor's race there. the winner there replaces bob macdonald. >> 12 years of michael bloomberg polls point to democrat bill de blasio who is running against who is credited for transitioning the subway system after superstorm sandy. 11 conservative counties in northern colorado are voting to succeed from the state. the vote is largely symbolic.
even if the measure passes they would require statewide and congressional approval. the nfl is investigating a case of suspected bullying by a miami dolphins lineman, richie incognito has been suspended indefinitely by the dolphins for conduct detrimental to the team is what they are calling it. his alleged victim is teammate and fellow lineman jonathan martin who apparently was so desperate that he walked off the job last week. we are going to get more from cnn's john zarrella. >> reporter: this is miami dolphin richie incognito from a team promo. >> on the field, players have called me overly aggressive. >> reporter: now it may be that incognito was not only overly aggressive on the field but off the field as well leading to his suspension. the nfl is looking into whether incognito bullied another player jonathan martin so badly that martin left the team.
according to espn and nfl.com this is the text of a voice mail sent from incognito from martin. quote. hey, what up, you half blank piece of blank? i saw you on twitter. you've been training ten weeks. i'm blank in your blank mouth. i'm going to slap your real mother across the face. blank you. you're still a rookie. i'll kill you. the text has come out a week after an incident in the dolphins lunch room involving martin and other offensive linemen. martin left and hasn't been back. at a press conference, dolphins head coach joe phillynn said he spoke several times over several days with martin following the incident. >> in all of my discussions with jonathan and members of his family, at no time were there any accusations or allegations of misconduct by any members of this team or this organization. >> reporter: but sunday, a martin representative contacted philbin and the dolphins with concerns over what philbin called player conduct. that led to incognito's
suspension. calls to incognito, martins, and their representatives haven't been returned. as the hbo "hard knocks" video of the new york jets shows, hazing seems part of the writ of pass aj for nfl locker room. it is a not hurtful doze of fun, not hazing. >> i came to a good team. i don't know how it is around the league. man, i got lucky. >> i got a lot of respect for richie. i love playing with richie. i wish he was here right now. >> reporter: neither martin are nor incog nino are with the team and it's unclear when either will be back. john zarrella, cnn, miami. >> we will have to hear much more about that. houston texans coach gary kubiak reportedly suffered a tia or a ministroke. when he lapsed on the field of halftime of sunday night's game against the indianapolis colts.

nic robertson is live with us with the latest. what do you have, nic? >> reporter: about two hours ago, police say they discovered the body of richard shoop, a 20-year-old young man. they say his body was over at the back of the shopping mall in a building area behind the building area, it was some distance they say where he had entered the mall about six hours earlier when he began shooting. they say he fired at least six shots into an escalator, an elevator, into a couple of stories stores but they did say he wasn't shooting at people. this is somebody they described as trouble and who had a history of drug use. >> he does have a history of drug use. but we do believe that the motive for what he did tonight was suicide. whether self-inflicted or, god forbid, suicide. no one ever wants to say that. it looked like that was his motive and this time based upon what we know, it did not appear that he entered the mall to
actually shoot anyone and i say that only because it appears that he did have ample opportunity of that and chose not to do that. >> reporter: now the weapon that he used was a modified rifle.22-caliber weapon and to be look like an ak-47. he stole it from his brother, his family unaware that he was taking the weapon but we're that at this time that he was troubled. the prosecutor said that they had talked with the family and they had information which really led them not to be surprised when they discovered his body, a victim of his own gunshot taking his life. >> such a shocking case. do we know why he would do it in public and feel the need to go to the mall and do this, nic? >> this is something authorities are not able to answer at the moment. they say this is clearly somebody they don't use the word depressed but clearly what they are talking about.
they say this history of drug use using mdma and possibly heroin as well and they say contributed to his state of mind. they pointed out he didn't go in to take other people's lives, only his own life because he had plenty of opportunity to do that. >> thank god he didn't. latest on the obama care mess. healthcare.gov website is still a disaster and officials are forced to shut it down nightly for repairs as well and if it ever gets fixed some americans hoping to buy the quality health care at an affordable price my be in for a bad case of sticker shock. here is joe johns. >> ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states. >> reporter: outwardly the administration is confident and optimistic when it comes to obama care's promise of more choice and lower priced health insurance. >> thank you. >> reporter: the president made the case for that in a rose garden event at the white house. >> what we have done is
essentially created competition where there wasn't competition before. and, as a result, this choice and this competition, prices have come down. >> reporter: but privately there is concern. a stunning internal war room document created last week submitted to republican investigators and obtained by cnn details worries that when the website is up and running, there might be sticker shock and anger because the media attention will follow individuals to plan selection and their ultimate choices and, in some cases, there will be fewer options than would be desired to promote consumer choice and ideal shopping experience. additionally in some cases, there will be relatively high cost plans. meanwhile, the white house was once again on defense monday after other war room notes suggested the administration's request to consumers to call in to register for obama care wasn't really a way of bipassing the glichty healthy.gov website. why? the call centers and the website
use the same computer system. >> the point of the call-in centers was to reduce the frustration that individuals were having. that's what he said. that's what we were doing. that's what we're doing. in the meantime, we're, you know, busting rocks every day to fix the website. >> reporter: joe johns, cnn, washington. 35 minutes past the hour. a quick check of the morning forecast. karen is live in the cnn weather center. good morning to you. >> and good morning. we are looking at kind of a very volatile situation as far as the weather is concerned. up and down as far as the temperatures are concerned. especially over the next several days. as we see that big dip in the atmosphere across the interior west and a frontal system moving rapidly toward the east. if you're traveling and live in the northeastern corridor along the i-95 corridor you have the next 48 hours it looks to be pretty good, but about thursday, if you've got travel plans you may want to rethink that because
temperatures are going to be a little bit lower and on the order of a quarter of an inch to maybe half an inch of rainfall associated with the frontal passage. then that ridge of high pressure moves in before another weather system moves in by sunday. now temperatures this morning not nearly as cold as they were yesterday morning. temperatures were in the 20s and 30s. yesterday in new york city, central park, 46. that was it. that was all the temperature was. we expect 50s for today and guess what what? as we go by wednesday, looks like temperatures expected in the 60s, even 66 for pittsburgh. so it looks pretty good. temperatures running about 5 to 10 degrees above where they should be but just wait. here comes that frontal system and will kick up the wind and drop the temperatures and produce some rainfall. >> thank you, karen. 37 minutes past the hour. one of the three men who survived a decade in captivity in a cleveland house is opening up about her harrowing interview.
