latest on the shooting at a middle school in nevada. new details coming out overnight about the courageous students who rushed into the chaos. abc's cecilia vega, is in sparks, nevada, with the latest this morning. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. students and their teachers alike being hailed a hero as you said out here. as for the gunman, just a boy wearing a school uniform when he opened fire here. as for why he did it, police say the motive is still unknown. as students at sparks middle school returned from fall break, shots rang out. >> i thought it was fake. i thought he was going to be suspended for a fake gun. >> he is in a school uniform. this is seen by a teacher. >> reporter: one of the classmates of this reno suburb opened fire just minutes before the morning bell. >> active shooters sparks middle school. they have at least two down. >> reporter: happening so fast, it was over before police arrived. >> the initial 911 call came, the response was less than three minutes. >> reporter: the gunman shooting
another student in the shoulder. witnesses say michael landsberry, a 45-year-old math teacher and veteran, tried to stop the shooter, only to be shot dead himself. the boy went inside and fired. then, the shooter turned the gun on himself, fatally. did he have friends? >> sort of. he got bullied a couple times. >> reporter: but amid the tragedy this morning, stories of heroism. this student, part of a group that tried to help landsberry, running towards the gunfire instead of away from it. >> everybody ran towards mr. landsberry. >> reporter: that's pretty brave. >> it's a teacher. he kind of needs help. >> reporter: they didn't know how to help. they just knew they wanted to. >> we didn't know if he was breathing or not. >> reporter: were there teachers there helping you? >> no, the teachers all ran inside because they were trying to get all the students inside. >> reporter: they could still hear gunshots. so, they ran inside and hid in a dark classroom. were you scared to be there to help him? >> kind of. >> reporter: overnight, an
outpouring of grief from a community in mourning. >> to me, that tells me that he touched somebody's heart. and that means a lot. it means a lot. >> reporter: he touched a lot of people out here. those students who ran back to help their teacher, many of them didn't know each other. some of them never set foot in one of plrks landsberry's class. school here remains closed for the rest of the week. >> cecilia, thank you so much. so many times, you hear about the stories, people in these situations. those students like that. we're going to turn to the latest fallout from the government shutdown. a new abc news/"washington post" poll shows what we think about congress has hit a record low. only 12% approve. 85% are unhappy about it. jonathan karl is in washington with more on the poll. and president obama vows to fix the problems with his health care plan. let's begin with the poll. no good news for anyone in washington.
but republicans taking the biggest hit. >> reporter: that's right, george. this new poll shows that there's disapproval with everyone in congress. republicans taking the biggest hit. 77% disapproving how they handled the budget talks that led to this crisis. and this next number should strike fear into the hearts of incumbents everywhere. only 21% saying they're incli inclined -- 25%, inclined to re-elect their member of congress. 66% saying they want to look around. >> looking for big changes right now. president obama, out there in the rose garden yesterday, talking about his health care plan. so many problems with the early launch of that. the president says, no one's madder about him about it. but he didn't give a lot of details about the fix. >> reporter: that's right. the president said and the white house has talked about a tech surge, bringing in the best and the brightest of the computer world to help fix this problem. we asked who. and the white house refers to us hhs.
they say they don't have a specific list of who is coming in to help out. kathleen sebelius was asked to testify before congress this week. she declined citing scheduling issues but she will come next week. >> she will get a grilling there. jon karl, thanks very much. let's get the other top stories from josh. >> we're going to begin with dramatic video. it may be tough to watch. it came in overnight. it shows an attack that raises concern about the upcoming olympics in russia, the security there. it shows the moment a suspected suicide bomber detonated a bomb on a bus in southern russia, killing six people and wounding dozens more. officials believe the bomber was an islamic militant, part of an insurgency. they worry may now look to target this coming winter's games. and two human rights groups are out with scathing reports this morning about u.s. drone strikes overseas. the groups claim more civilians have been killed in pakistan and yemen, than the
u.s. has acknowledged. in fact, dozens more, including women and children. the white house claims that civilian deaths are exceedingly rare. and we learned overnight about a terrifying close call between two jumbo jets in the air. we saw it at the top of the show. one of the jets flying to washington, d.c. a lufthansa boeing 747 and a british airways 747, apparently misunderstood orders from air traffic control over scotland. they turned towards each other. and again, there's no way to mock this up to make it look worse than it was. they came within 100 feet of each other. so close, considering the planes themselves are 60 feet long. this happened in june. british authorities just released the details. they are blaming the pilots for the error. some great news for tens of thousands of morning commuters in the bay area in california. a deal struck overnight to end the four-day transit strike in san francisco. the bay area rapid transit trains will be running this
morning. full service is expected by afternoon. again, exceedingly great news for so many thousands in northern california. caught on camera here in the boston subway, a woman who was apparently sleepwalking, stumbles right off the platform, on to the tracks. she hurt her arm in the fall. but look at the other riders jump in, lifting her back on to the platform. again, hurting her arm, but only that. and finally, could be the best bargain ever. look at this receipt. it's a guy named eric who was able to buy a ticket to game one of the world series for $6. it was actually a $3 purchase. but the fee on stubhub doubled that. now, three similar tickets are selling for more than 800 a pop. why would anyone sell a ticket that cheap? we have no idea. and i'm guessing the seller has no idea, either.
i'm going to guess somebody didn't hit a decimal point and a couple more zeros. >> if you could get on the airline that's been sending out the free tickets, you would be set. life is good. life is good, all right, josh, thank you. now, to the mystery of the identity of little maria. american parents of baby lisa irwin, the little girl who disappeared in the u.s. a few years ago, now asking if their missing child could be maria. a global search is under way for her parents. alex perez is in greece and has the latest for us. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, robin. the irwins are 1 of 8,000 calls and leads that greek authorities have received from around the world. now, the roma couple appeared at the courthouse behind me. they are both headed to jail. while police continue hunting for maria's real parents. the roma couple maria was with when police discovered her in last week's raid is now behind
bars. awaiting charges on abduction and forgery charges. back in kansas city, the family of baby lisa irwin, who vanished from their home in 2011, when she was nearly a year old is watching. they have contacted authorities. baby lisa would be 3 years old next month. the family's attorney tells "the daily telegraph" that the irwins are 1 of 4 american inquiries about maria. the couple told the judge they adopted maria after her mother gave her to them. >> our clients are claiming we never abduct this child. we just adopted. with a way nonlegal, that's where we can confess. >> reporter: but investigators aren't buying it. they say he has a criminal record and has given conflicting accounts of how they got maria. and she was discovered with two different identities and claims to have given birth to 6 of their 14 children in the last 10
months. that has officials investigating whether the couple is part of an international child trafficking ring. their neighbor says their own children played with maria. and calls the roma couple good parents. saying, in part, they always cared for the little girl. dna tests confirm maria is not related to the roma couple. a pathologist concludes she's between 5 and 6 years old. and despite reports she could have ties to the u.s., she's believed to possibly be from northern europe. >> i'm not aware of any contacts that indicate she's american. >> reporter: this morning, maria is being cared for in a hospital, until her real family is found. >> she's happy. she's doing well. she communicates. and she's playing with toys. >> reporter: now, the irwin family attorney tells abc news they have reached out to the fbi for help, as well. now, as for maria, we're told she is in good spirits and playing with toys. if here real family is not found in the next six months, prosecutors tell us the formal adoption process to find her a
new home could begin. george? >> okay, alex, thanks. let's get more on this from abc's chief legal analyst, dan abrams. the state department saying no evidence this is an american. but the irwins coming forward. so many families hoping against hope this could be their baby. >> this has given hope, now, to families around the world, who have missing children about this age. when it comes to the irwins, i remember when i interviewed them, when this case started, they were holding out hope that somehow, something would come forward. they'd get some sort of tip, et cetera. the issues. number one, this child, maria, seems to be ages 4 or 5. baby lisa would be closer to 3. you have the state department coming out and saying, no indications that this is an american. but that doesn't rule it out. and i think all the families out there, including the irwins who have missing children, are going to hold out hope that maybe this is their child. >> and the crime of trafficking children, very serious. and this couple being charged with abduction.
>> well, that's right. the question's going to be, did they abduct this child? or did they take in a child that they say -- maybe engage in what is effectively welfare fraud. trying to get government aid they wouldn't have been entitled to. and that's the key distinction here. were they involved in actually taking this child? the authorities are charging them with abducting a child. so, the authorities clearly don't believe their account. they gave numerous accounts about what happened here. up to five different accounts. so, they're in big legal trouble right now. >> okay, dan abrams, thanks very much. >> all right. >> thank you, george. now, to a potentially huge breakthrough in the battle against baldness. scientists say they have found a new way to grow hair. and it could be the next step towards better treatments for baldness. let's bring in abc's chief health and medical editor, dr. richard besser. just tell us how this treatment works. >> this is exciting. they took skin cells that don't normally grow hair. they put them in a dish, treated them and turned them into hair-growing cells.
they then injected them back into skin that didn't have hair and hair grew. they figured out the instruction manual for creating hair-growing cells. >> this could be a better method than the current methods that are out there. >> that's right. the current treatments are getting existing air growing cells to start growing again. this is a different approach. it might be of real value for women who can't get hair transplants as often because they don't have as much skin that grows hair. >> this is early on in the research. >> this study, it was done on human skin but grafted on to mice. before they would test this in people, how do you control the color of the air, the texture, the angle it grows. if they figure it out, they will test it in people. it's a few years off. >> you came in this morning very excited. not just because of this in particular, but what it could mean in the bigger picture. >> that's right. what they've done here is they've figured out how one of our types of cells operates. and the more we learn about that, it leads to treatments for all kinds of different things.
scientifically, this is a really big advance. >> okay. fingers crossed. thank you very much. big day for apple today. all you techies out there can't wait for the latest gadget. a new ipad expected to be unveiled in san francisco, at a time when apple needs a big hit. our tech expert, neal karlinsky, has the story. >> reporter: this morning, apple will take its best shot in what has grown into a fiery battle for domination in the tablet wars. the company is expected to launch its latest ipad and ipad mini, including likely sharper screens, possibly thinner form and new colors. but will it be enough? >> there's a lot of pressure on apple to put out something that will garner a lot of excitement. and huge refreshes of tablets that already exist is kind of a tough thing to pull off. >> this is what it looks like. very thin. >> reporter: the pressure is on. apple is no longer the leader in a market it invented in 2010, with the very first ipad.
today, android tablets, many of them cheaper and put out under a number of brands, have 50% worldwide market share, according to new research. apple, now trailing at 49%. a steady drop from just two years ago. today's new ipad launches in many ways mark the start of the holiday crush. >> when you look at the competition from microsoft to amazon to google, it's really important for apple, today, to really show they are still the best tablet out there. >> reporter: whatever is revealed on stage by apple today will be fighting for attention in a more crowded and competitive market than ever. for "good morning america," neal karlinsky, abc news, seattle. >> exciting for a lot of people there. and, lara, you have something exciting, too. >> yeah, really love this story. it's about an oklahoma teen who found a huge diamond at a state park. she heard about a young boy who
found a 5-karat diamond at arkansas's state park. this is a story we did on "gma." she convinced her parents she should try her own luck. the family spent the weekend at the crater of diamonds state park in arkansas, hoping to uncover a diamond in the rough. >> i didn't think i was going the find anything. >> reporter: 14-year-old tana was two hours into her search of the 37-acre park, when something shiny, about the size of a jelly bean caught her eye. >> i saw something goldish or shiny. it was not a candy wrapper or a marble. >> she came straight up and the minute she opened her hand, i knew she had something. >> reporter: park experts evaluated that something. and told her the news. tana had discovered a 3.85-karat canary diamond. >> they hadn't found one in a very long time. >> reporter: the park has a kinders keepers policy. and tana's parents say that diamond is being kept in a safety deposit box.
in august, michael found a 5-karat diamond in the same park. that inspired tana to try her own luck. >> i had this gut feeling that i needed to walk. i named it god's jewel because i think that god led me towards it. >> sure is pretty. and we want to thank koco, our station in oklahoma city, for sharing that story with us. >> where exactly is this? >> i know. >> two for two. >> a big one. >> there's diamonds in those hills. >> this weekend. weekend trip to arkansas. >> road trip. but it's going to be a little chilly when we head out. >> this is our step into colder temperatures. we're going to get right to the boards here. we're going to show you the big chill. now, the front had kept it off the east coast, up until now. but today's the day, tonight's the night, that that front starts to work through. and now, the colder temperatures will trickle in along the eastern seaboard from the mid-atlantic to new england. you started seeing the cooler temperatures with some snow in minneapolis. now, the clippers are bringing in both things, the snow and the cold air.
big drop through the dakotas. then they kind of hook, catch a ride on the jet stream, if you will, through a little of northern illinois, indiana, a light path of snow. and the temperatures, each successive one, will be cooler and cooler, until we settle into the right level for this time of year. the temperatures in boston with clouds and afternoon showers at 67. portland, at 62. new york at 64. that's probably the last of the 60s for a couple days.
>> tuesday trivia was brought to you by oxytrol. and all of the folks that like lake-effect snow, are getting excited now. because now is the time it starts to kick in on those eastern -- >> who are those folks again, exactly? i would like to meet those folks. >> if they live there, they like it. coming up on "gma," the man accused of killing nfl star sean taylor. also ahead, cee lo green, in court. accused of slipping a woman ecstasy on a date. facing possible time behind bars. and big news on "dancing

[ monkey squeals ] [ sighs ] [ male announcer ] choose taste. choose prego. good morning. i'm kristen sze. b.a.r.t. is up and running again this morning after the agency and its unions reached a tentative deal to end a four-day strike last night. but only half the normal number of trains are now on the tracks after a two-hour delay to the start. at the walnut creek station
first train arrived after 6:00 a.m. it was announced last night b.a.r.t. service would resume at 4:00 this morning, limited service. but commuters who arrived at that hour found the system was not properly staffed. full service is expected to return by this afternoon commute. hopefully better than, but this morning not too good, leyla. not at all. we have a sigalert on the bay bridge. if you're traveling in the westbound direction, taking a look from our cell 7 technology, a shot here looks like we have an attenuator pushing traffic to the right hand side. two lanes remain blocked because of this motorcycle crash. so as you make that drive coming out of the maze and into san francisco, it is going to be one long slow ride. kristen. leyla,

is that allowed? i don't know. also, a show to help kick off the weekend each and every friday on tgif, however coincidental, "boy meets world." and now, the stars of the hit show, together again, only on "good morning america" this morning. terrific stuff. >> reunion. first, the trial is finally under way for the man charged with killing washington redskins star sean taylor, six years after the crime. taylor was shot during a botched burglary of his home in 2007. gio benitez is tracking the case. good morning, gio. >> reporter: taylor's death shocked the nation. he left behind a girlfriend and a baby. on his first day of trial, the alleged killer of nfl star sean taylor, makes a stunning allegation, that his confession was coerced. it's the key question for
jurors. taylor was a safety for the washington redskins. but one november night in 2007, the 24-year-old was killed at his miami home. now, with accused gunman eric rivera in court, taylor's girlfriend, emotionally remembers -- >> sean woke me up. and told me, he had heard a noise. and to call the police. >> reporter: jackie garcia, niece of actor andy garcia, said taylor grabbed a machete by the bed. and an intruder kicked open the door. >> i heard gunshots. and i screamed. i got up. and i saw sean laying facedown, surrounded by blood. >> reporter: police say taylor, shot in the leg, was bleeding to death. garcia says she never saw the shooter. but prosecutors say 23-year-old rivera confessed to the killing. investigators say it was a botched burglary, that rivera and four friends thought the house was empty. they were looking to steal money. >> sean taylor, defending
himself, defending his family, defending his home, is shot by this defendant. >> reporter: in court, prosecutors showed jurors casts of what they say are rivera's footprints from inside the house. they they say rivera, who pleaded not guilty, drew diagrams and said he tossed the gun into the everglades. his defense attorney says the videotaped confession was coerced. >> detectives were under such press to close this investigation, they forced my client to confess to this crime. >> reporter: rivera is charged with first-degree murder. but he was 17 at the time. he won't face the death penalty. only one of the alleged accomplices has pleaded guilty. and he may testify against reveiver rivera. let's get dan abrams back for this. that videotape confession is tough to fight.
>> you want to get a videotape confession excluded before the trial. and his attorneys almost certainly did that. they lost. and so, now, the confession comes in. and it's much harder to say to a jury, don't believe what you saw. >> once they hear it. >> yeah. don't believe him confessing. you want a judge to say, this is inadmissible. there are legal rules here that apply. we're not going to have the jury see this. once the jury sees it, a lawyer arguing, he was coerced, you shouldn't believe it, very hard argument to make. >> we heard gio say, one of the accomplices will testify against him. you have other evidence, too. >> you have cell phone data linking him to the neighborhood. you have the footprint matching the exact shoe he was wearing and the testimony of a fellow coconspirator, effectively, who has pled out. you have a lot of pieces. tough defense. >> against all that, doesn't appear to be premeditation here.
and he was young, 17. >> that's the key to the argument. maybe ordinarily, you can't believe it. but this kid was 17. that's why he was coerced. that's why you can believe he wasn't of sound mind, in effect, when he made this confession, when he did this, et cetera. but still, that's only going to get you a little bit. meaning, that's the kind of argument that may help you more in sentencing than in the guilt or innocence phase. >> and so much more that as the trial goes on, he could figure out a way to plea out? >> that generally happens before. sometimes it happens during the trial, particularly if one side is doing badly. this is not a case where they're going to offer a good deal. as a result, that's probably why he's willing to risk it on going to trial. >> dan abrams, thanks very much. now, to the case in missouri that's drawn international attention. a teenage girl claims she was sexually assaulted last year by a former high school football star. charges were dropped, she says, because he's from a prominent
family. outrage nationwide led to a judge to appoint a special prosecutor to reopen the case on monday. abc's linzie janis has the story for us. >> reporter: this morning, it's the case of daisy coleman garners national attention. we're hearing from the special prosecutor now assigned to find answers. >> our review of this case will be without fear and without favor. >> reporter: jean peters baker is now at the helm of the reopened case, which has been rocking the small town of maryville, missouri, since january of last year. that's when coleman, just 14 years old at the time, says she was sexually assaulted by matthew barnett, a popular football player at the high school. >> he gave me a glass of clear liquid. >> reporter: barnett claims the sex was consensual. and two years after the alleged assault, the charges against him were dropped.
authorities claim there was enough evidence that daisy and her mother were cooperating. >> they refused to help in their case in any way. >> reporter: but the colemans say that's not true. >> we cooperated completely. >> reporter: they believe barnett was given special treatment because of his family's prominence in the town. a local newspaper article would add fuel to that fire. causing the county prosecutor to go on the defensive. >> my name was dragged through the mud in that article. and i don't appreciate it. >> reporter: after reporting the alleged assault, daisy said she was bullied so badly, her family had to move out of town. >> i felt like i was weak, worn down. like i wasn't worth anything. >> reporter: this morning, daisy's mother tells us she's very happy the case is being reopened. barnett's attorneys had no comment. for "good morning america," linzie janis, abc news, new york. >> dan was about to walk out of the studio. we pulled you back in. you said if a special prosecutor is involved -- >> in a case like this, where
it's getting so much attention, nationwide, when they bring in a special prosecutor to effectively say, we're not happy with what's happened here. we want to bring someone else to take a new look at this. if i'm that possible defendant, i'm concerned. >> and the young woman, daisy, has been strong and consistent. you don't get anything extra. you happen to be here. >> he gets to stay for weather. a special look at the weather. >> oh. is this a special weather for me, sam? >> it is. we have two circles of concern for you. a lot of e-mail traffic when lorenzo was named. it's in the atlantic. how much longer will it be on the board? but it is a system. now, raymond. this is probably the strongest one in probably the western hemisphere so far in tropical season. raymond is sitting just off the coast of mexico, probably 6 to 12 inches of rain on the central coast of mexico. the same place that was punched by manuel, not long ago, with a lot of damage.
the forecast takes this thing away. but within 50 miles of the coast of mexico right now. and that's really bad news. not necessarily for the winds. it's a very tight system. but for the rain, the heavy rain in an area that's been flooded and just doesn't need it. in comes the cold air. milwaukee, chicago, davenport, indianapolis, all the way through northern illinois, and detroit. these numbers, there are so many states right now, probably eight that have frost or freeze warnings, watches or advisories right now. and this is the first part of the coldest air so far, that makes it all the way to the deep south and the east coast. check those numbers. boston, washington, chicago, kansas city, all for you. all that >> all that weather was brought

back at 7:43, with the latest on cee lo green. the "forget you" singer is facing possible prison time after being charged with slipping a drug into a woman's drink when he was on a date with. and abc's abbie boudreau has the story. >> reporter: best known for his smash single, "forget you." the singer/song writer appeared in a los angeles courtroom for his arraignment on a felony drug charge. the five-time grammy award winner pleaded not guilty to allegedly giving a woman ecstasy. if convicted, he could face up to four years in prison. >> even though he faces the maximum of four years, the likely of that is minimal. this is not a state prison case. >> reporter: the 39-year-old whose real name is thomas decarlo callaway, had dinner with a 33-year-old woman in los angeles a year ago.
