3:01 am
good morning. i'm alison kosik in for christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. 6:00 here on the east coast. good to have you here this morning. another community is searching for answers after a popular freshman started shooting at a high school cafeteria. one girl in marysville high school was killed. in what witnesses describe as a chaotic and bloody screen. four others, two girls and two boys are fighting for their lives. >> by all accounts, fryberg was popular. made homecoming prince just a week ago. classmates have told cnn as a recent fight and suspension. and point to fryberg's tweets that he was troubled. >> it just came out of nowhere. honestly wouldn't expect it. i heard like his girlfriend broke up with him. and the tweets that everyone's been like retweeting throughout
3:02 am
the past couple of days of their conversations has been pretty brutal, honestly. so that could have been affecting him. >> and our dan simon is in marysville, washington, this morning. dan, from social media and from friends we're learning more about this young man. what else you have learned also about the gun he used? >> reporter: well, good morning, victor and alison. we're at providence hospital where two of the victims are receiving care, both said to be in extremely critical condition after suffering what could only be described as horrific injuries shot at very close range by the shooter as you said identified as 14-year-old jaylen fryberg. the weapon used we're told was a.40 caliber beretta handgun. apparently registered to of the suspect's father. the shooting happened at 10:30 in the morning at that school cafeteria. according to eyewitnesses, the shooter targeted a specific
3:03 am
table. he knew who the students were, approached them from the back and began opening fire so this was not a random shooting. and the shooter doesn't seem to fit the narrative with other shooters. as you say, had he was popular and was the homecoming prince a week ago. >> typically what we hear is a bullied teenager. are the survivors' families this morning, are they saying anythingy. >> reporter: we're not hearing had much. but one dimension of all of this, we're told from a grandfather of one of those wounded that two of the victims are said to be relatives of the shooter. they're said to be cousins. so that adds a whole new dimension into this. so what ultimately set this shooter off, we don't know. some have speculated perhaps there was a breakup with a girlfriend. and we can't say about a fight. also said that the shooter was a member of the tulalip tribe and
3:04 am
apparently a month ago there were some racist language used and some speculated that that fight may have led to some of the troubles. >> dan simon reporting. not only did this young man know these shooting victims, but this morning, according to the grandfather, two of them were relatives. dan simon outside of hospital there where two of these young teenagers are. thank you, dan. now, to another story we're watching this morning, a health care worker is being tested for ebola at a hospital in newark, new jersey. >> now, the woman just came back to the u.s. yesterday from west africa. new york and new jersey are now ordering a mandatory quarantine for anyone returning from the ebola zone in west africa who had direct contact with an ebola patient. >> dr. craig spencer, the first person diagnosed with ebola in new york city he's in isolation in bellevue hospital. >> and alexandra field joining us from bellevue. what are you hearing. we did hear that she had
3:05 am
suddenly had a fever, a temperature? is that the case. >> reporter: hey, guys, last check we heard that dr. craig spencer was in stable condition here at bellevue, thursday was brought here and put in isolation. mayor bill de blasio here in new york city said the doctor was well enough to be maintaining some conversations with the people who are around him so that is some encouraging news as we wake up this morning on that front, allison and victor. >> tils aboell us about some of restrictions being imposed in new york and new jersey. are these actually above federal requirements? >> reporter: yeah, these are. there's been a lot of talk of what the federal requirements are. just yesterday we saw the governors of new york and new jersey come out and say they want to go a step beyond. a mandatory quarantine for anyone from west africa who has had direct contact with ebola patients. the governor spoke yesterday as to why they're taking this extra
3:06 am
measure. listen to what governor cuomo had to say. >> we feel it's appropriate to increase the extreme procedures for people coming from affected countries from the current cdc screening procedures. we believe it is in the state of new york's and state of new jersey's legal rights to control access to their borders. >> reporter: all right. so under this policy, officials can decide whether or not it is necessary to quarantine someone or actually hospital united states them. we saw the policy go into effect on date it was announced. that's when the health care worker returned from west africa. he arrived in newark. has been put in isolation in newark. we don't know have an update on her condition but we do know she's been tested for ebola as well. >> thanks. dr. joseph mccormick joins from us brownsville, texas.
3:07 am
he's the regional dean at the university of texas school of public health. should dr. craig spencer, the doctor in new york, diagnosed with ebola do you think he should have been quarantined earlier, knowing that he came straight from the hot zone after treating patients? >> i suspect that he had should have, yes. i think that when you are exposed to the level of virus that we're seeing in west africa, you clearly have a risk that's higher than if you're exposed, say, to somebody in a hospital here in the u.s. so, yes, i suspect that would have been a good policy. >> so, do you think, let's pull the thread and take a step further do you think this should be a national policy? the cdc should then follow the lead of new york and new jersey here? >> i think for someone who has cared for patients in west africa, it would be very prudent to put them into, certainly, a very limited travel and contact with the public.
3:08 am
whether it's a full quarantine, i suspect you may have to do a full quarantine in order to have an effective procedure. >> but in the case of thomas eric duncan, he did not know, from his family, did not know he was in that area of treating for a pregnant woman with ebola and bringing it here to the u.s. do you think they need to quarantine everybody from those three countries? >> no, you'll lose your focus at those at risk. what i can say to mr. duncan is, he was clearly exposed probably even more than the two people you're talking about now. we just didn't know that. i think if anyone had known that, he should have been a person who should have been quarantined. but trying to put everyone under quarantine will simply divert the resources from the ones that
3:09 am
are at risk. >> you can tell us how people can contract ebola? you know, hearing about dr. spencer riding the subways. i live in new york, i ride the subways every day. we all touch the same poles. we're all packed in like sardines. can we get it on the subways? how can people contract ebola? >> the only way you can contract ebola is to come in direct contact with bodily fluids with someone who is symptomatic. if you're symptomatic with ebola, you're highly unlikely to be traveled on a subway. >> what if that person sneezes, if you sneeze, you can't help but a little saliva comes out there? >> if they're not symptomatic, if they knesneeze, they're not going to do anything more than anyone else. >> dr. mckocormick. >> nurse nina pham good news, back in dallas, it texas. >> and her dad welcomed her back
3:10 am
home. she got scrubs signed by doctors at texas presbyterian hospital. pham is now ebola-free. >> and at the white house, pham got a hug from president obama. she's one of two nurses who got infected after caring for thomas eric duncan. pham says she is eager to get on with her life. >> although i no longer have ebola, i know that it may be a while before i have my strength back. so with gratitude and respect for everyone's concern, i ask for my privacy and my family's privacy to be respected as i return to texas and try to get back to a normal life and reunite with my dog bentley. >> amber vinson remains in the hospital. we're going to have more on her condition coming up later. a shooting spree in california ending with two deputies dead.
3:11 am
and this huge auto recall. you have heard about this? it could get even bigger. more cars could soon join the list of vehicles needing new air bags because they could explode with potentially fatal consequences. callahan's? ehh, i mean get away, like, away away. road trip? double wings, extra ranch. feels good to mix it up. the all-new, fuel-efficient volkswagen golf tdi clean diesel. up to 594 miles of adventure in every tank. this is charlie. his long day of doing it himself starts with back pain... and a choice. take 4 advil in a day or just 2 aleve for all day relief. honey, you did it! baby laughs!

3:16 am
businesses there. good news, there were no injuries. a lot of students evacuated after the fatal shoot in marysville, washington, described their panic and fear as soon as they hurt the crackling of gunshots. they said they began to run and take cover. some even came face-to-face with the shooter now confirmed by police as marysville-pilchuck student jaylen fryberg. >> i heard the gun and i turned around he was just shooting everyone. >> police say fryberg shot four and killed one before shooting himself. we have dr. roberts from prauv vens medical center in everett. dr. roberts, good morning to you. how many students are you still treating at that hospital and what do we know about their condition? >> we have two students still left at our hospital.
3:17 am
i believe you heard that one suffered relatively minor injuries. and we have sent that patient on to another hospital. a second suffered severe injuries, went to surgery, and we moved that patient to a pediatric icu in downtown seattle, harborview. >> is there any more, of course, respecting privacy, any more you can tell us about those injuries? >> the two that we have remaining at providence regional medical center remain at very critical condition. their families remain at their bedsides and their families continue to ask that their identities not be released and let them be with their loved ones. >> and we respect that. you've been quoted as saying, we dreaded this day in this community. go ahead, expound upon that if you would, before i get to the question? >> sure. we have dreaded this day.
3:18 am
we've seen several school shootings over the years. even over the past year, we've seen a school shooting. about two months ago, we asked our emergency and trauma teams to do a drill to -- that would mimic a schoolyard shooting in which two children were brought in the hospital in much the same way that happened yesterday. so when yesterday's call came, were were were ready. we had just practiced this just a couple months ago. >> i know that what's paramount here is to save the lives and to care for those children in your care. but tell me, as a residents in this community, what do you feel? >> i feel horrible, obviously, like all of us. we all -- you know, most of us have children. most of us worry about this. most of us think about something
3:19 am
like this. and the dread and the sad space before all of this unwinded in the first few minutes when staff members didn't know who was going to be coming into the e.r. and they didn't know if they would be their own children. that was pretty horrible. the whole day -- the whole day was horrible. and the families throughout the day waiting to hear about loved ones, and they weren't even sure who was in the hospital yet. >> i would say, dr. roberts, that it's unimaginable, but unfortunately, we have seen this in this country many times before. and our fear and concern is that we will see it again. we thank you for your work. dr. joanne roberts there from providence medical center in everett, washington. a shooting entry leaves two deputies dead. and we'll have details about a

a tragic end to the search for missing university of virginia student hannah graham. officials have confirmed that human remains they discovered along an abandoned creek bed are those of 18-year-old who was last seen on september 13th. as her parents deal with the heartbreaking news, police are now building their case against jesse matthew, the prime suspect
3:24 am
in their daughter's disappearance. cnn's brian todd has the details. >> reporter: police now confirm the remains found along this creek bed are those of 18-year-old hannah graham. her parents in a statement say, quote, we are devastated by the loss of our beautiful daughter hannah. as they deal with the worst news, the cases build against jessmy matthew. >> there are a number of missing people and they have identified a suspect that clearly was involved to some extent with perhaps one or more of these cases. >> reporter: the latest case matthew was mentioned with is missing teenager alexis murphy. her body was never found. but her abandoned car was found in charlottesville. and another man was convicted. they're asking dna be retested. >> i'm asking them to care it to it all the known dna in that case. >> reporter: that's randy taylor, the man convicted of her
3:25 am
kill after some of her dna was found in her home. >> i don't think mr. matthew had anything to do with that, that's just my personal opinion. i think that case shows how people are straining to pin more and more thins on mr. matthew. >> reporter: matthew has been indicted in another case in fairfax county two hours north of charlottesville. he faces charges of sexual assault where a woman was abducted while walking home from the grocery store. >> fairfax is a strong case because it's been in the workforce the last nine years. they have a live victim who can come in and testify. >> reporter: and there could be a forensic link between that case and about destruction and murder of morgan hannington. her body was found in a farm outside of charlottesville three months later. no one has been charged in harrington's murder. what is that link? the man who found harrington's shirt on a bush told him police
3:26 am
had a dna match. but analysts say prosecuting matthew in the harrington case could be tough. >> the weakest link could be on the morgan harrington's case. we have no evidence that establishes that mr. matthew and miss harrington were ever together. >> reporter: that, of course, departs from the hannah graham tapes where surveillance accounts put them together the night she disappeared or at least in close proximity to each other. legal analyst joey jackson joining me now. joey, now that hannah graham's remains have been found, where does this lead the investigation? where to now? >> good morning, alison. the finding of the body is an unsignificant development, as unfortunate as it is. i'll tell you why. what happens, alison, to the extent you have a body there's other evidence and participation that could be cleaned from that.
3:27 am
like what? like hair analysis, like fibers, like dna, like blood. something that could potentially link jesse matthew, and as we know, based upon forensic science when you have that link, it's significant, so where you so, the potential upgrading of charges. we know he's facing the charge of about suction with intent to defile. which is essentially a sex abuse charge, abducting someone for purposes of leading to things of a sexual variety. i'll just say it that way. now that you have a body, we're talking about murder. and it becomes a murder investigation. i would expect in due time and in short order, the charges will be upgraded if in fact authorities find alison that he can be linked positively to her death. >> if the suspect, we're talking jesse matthew is linked to the death of hannah graham or morgan harrington, would the cases be
3:28 am
tried separately, or how would that be handled? >> well generally speaking, alison. each case would have a separate prosecution. certainly, it would be the defenses in those respective cases would want that because you don't want to taint the defendant in any particular case based on his rights that would be overly prejudicial. but one of the things that would occur, the prosecution would be seeking to introduce evidence of other instances with jesse matthew engaged in prior bad conduct. why? because it goes to motive. it goes to intent. it goes to a common plan of scheme. so even though you can see separate prosecutions for each case, don't be surprised if you see information relating to one case introduced in the prosecution of another. >> it's almost like the investigation is just revving up. joey jackson, thanks so much for joining us this morning. >> a pleasure. the man with the hatchet in new york. and then, of course, the shooter in ottawa, two of the lone wolf

3:33 am
suspect reportedly are now in custody. sacramento deputy danny oliver was killed in a shoot-out in a motel parking lot. also shot dead was michael david davis jr. a homicide investigator. number two, a health care worker is in isolation and being tested for ebola at a hospital in newark, new jersey. she arrived at newark liberty international airport yesterday after treating ebola patients in west africa. a health official says she did not have symptoms when she arrive. number three, new york and new jersey are ordering a mandatory quarantine for anyone returning from the ebola zone in west africa who had direct contact with an ebola patient. that's above cdc requirements. new jersey governor chris christie said the move will help better protect people against the virus. >> we are no longer relying on cdc standards. there are now new york/new jersey standards for this, and we need new york/new jersey health officials to work with the cdc to make sure that our

3:35 am
popular kid. he was the homecoming prince, but something went wrong recently. here's what a friend recalls. >> there's a lot of stories going about the suspension, i don't know the full story, so i don't want to put anything throughout. i know there was bullying involved and a couple words said towards him that he obviously didn't like. there was a fight that happened and he was suspended. >> and at a social media age, you can look to his twitter account for some clues. posts on tuesday hints that a breakup with a girlfriend in recent months. he says it breaks me. it actually does. i know it seems like i'm sweating it off but i'm not. and i will never be able to. let's bring in cnn law enforcement analyst tom fuentes. tom, investigators are still looking for a motive behind the shooting spree. but teenagers, we were all teenagers at some point, are dramatic about breakups. should this have been a sign soming that was going to happen?
3:36 am
>> well, i think if they were a sign, we'd be locking up about 100,000 kids in this country and around the world. you're right, this say difficult time of life for many people to transition into being teenagers and young adults. and you're going to have relationship issues and school issues. a number of things. and we look at him from the outside and say, wait a minute, he's popular, he's good looking. he's on the football team. he's a homecoming prince. you know, on the outside, it looks like everything's going great for him. but on the inside, not really so. and we really don't know the full extent of that. i think the report that he was fighting and got suspended over racial comments made towards him because he's a native-american, presumably, you know, those are accounts that might have been made to him his whole life growing up. and therefore, been brewing with him that when a girlfriend breaks up or another young lady refuses to go out with him, he
3:37 am
takes that as additional humiliation in terms what they've been taunting him about in the first place. so many things will be going on in his mind that we wouldn't necessarily see at the time, not only now being able to go back in retrospect and piece things together. and as i said, we may still never know for sure. >> and i'm sure those families of not only the young girl who was killed, but also the four who are in hospitals. and all the students there, their families, want to know exactly why this happened. but let's turn to the other story we're following this weekend, the two terror attacks in the uggs and canada. we've got the man with the hatchet that ambushed police officers in new york. wounded two, one critically. we've also got the gunman in canada who shot a soldier and then stormed into the canadian parliament. both appear to be self-radicalized islamists. tom, i'd imagine that controlling or get to get lone wolves, before getting to the organized groups is much more
3:38 am
difficult because there isn't this, as it's called, chatter amongst a group of people. you got one guy who heeds a call and then goes on the attack. >> well, that's true, victor. and the so-called chatter really has to be specific to do any good. and if there is specifics, the authorizes will be into that plot investigating and trying to thwart it which they have done dozens of times, since 9/11. both in canada and the united states and great britain, for are that matter. but the difficulty is, you know, all of these -- there's thousands of these websites preaching the kind of hate. and, of course, isis has a very sophisticated multimedia approach to trying to recruit people to either join them in syria or iraq. or join them at home to just carry out an attack. and in our society, there's no better symbol than the authority of the government than a uniformed soldier or a uniformed
3:39 am
police officer. so that obviously creates a target for them to go after. and as these magazines and websites have promoted if you can't shoot a gun if you can't make a bomb, then use your car. use a knife. use in this case, a hatchet. derail a train, do something that you can do, even if you're not a sophisticated, highly trained terrorist. >> so do you stop it? i mean, it's easy to -- i won't say it's easy, but i guess it would be relatively easier to embed someone in a group or to break up or thwart an attack. if you've got one guy who is listening or reading online, how do you stop the lone wolves? >> you don't. that's just the simple truth of this. and we could be experiencing this for the next two generations. until this poisonous ideology is put to rest, done. you know, we can quarantine ebola. we can quarantine physical
3:40 am
viruses. you can't quarantine an idea or ideology. and this hate-fill eed ideologys going to go on and on with the modern communication of internet social media. we have white supremacists in this group following hitler and he's been dead for several decades. and hitler didn't have social media and the internet. you know, he made one book while he was in prison in the 1930s. to this day, we have people shaving their heads, painting swastikas on these things joining these groups. there's about 100 of them according to the southern poverty law center in the united states and multiple groups around the world. if we can't but naziism to rest in the last decades what are we going to do with this? >> tom, thank you very much. ebola patient craig spencer
3:41 am
didn't have ebola symptoms before thursday but he was feeling sluggish before then. so could he have been contagious? cdc investigating. thoughtfully crafted and intelligently designed. with available forward collision warning and new blind spot monitor and a 2014 top safety pick plus rating. cost of entry? a fortune. until now. hey sarah, new jetta? yup. can i check it out? maybe at halftime? introducing lots of new. the new volkswagen jetta. isn't it time for german engineering? i was out for a bike ride. i didn't think i'd have a heart attack. but i did. i'm mike, and i'm very much alive. now my doctor recommends a bayer aspirin regimen to help prevent another heart attack. be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen.

3:45 am
new york city marathon on november 2nd. and i'm doing it for charity. i'm doing it for super kids which we started running groups for kids that otherwise wouldn't have the option or possibility to do sports. i've never run a race before. it's always been on my bucket list. i've always wanted to run the new york marathon. i'm trying to get kids into sports. i'm breaking their boundaries. i'm aiming for goals that's maybe outside of their comfort zone. i thought it would be a great inspiration if i did something that was outside of mine. i'll be the first active professional athlete outside of runners, obviously, to run a marathon. that's going to be exciting. people obviously think i'm crazy. i dreamt that someone had to get me through the finish line in a wheelchair so i don't know if i'm that confident, but i'm starting to get there. to be honest, i'm just going to
3:46 am
take in the whole experience. i'm going to embrace the crowd. i'm going to embrace with tears and once i finish and get through the finish line, i think it's going to be -- i'm going to feel so relieved that it's going to be such a huge achievement for me. and good morning, new york city. look at this picture. a beautiful sunrise. temperatures are crisp. you know, we had a rough week across the northeast, throughout the past week with the nor'easter, now things are moving out. it is looking really, really nice across much the northeast. temperatures starting out, new york, 51, boston, 48. temperatures are going to be warm over the next few days. temperatures running 5 to 15 degrees above normal. 78 in st. louis. little rock at 80. atlanta, 76, we're going to see the temperatures stay above normal and early part of next

he was feeling well, and we know that when people have ebola infection and they're not symptomatic, they're not infectious. >> dr. craig spencer said he felt fine for almost the entire week since he returned from guinea where he was treating patients with ebola. but back in new york city, he was doing the normal stuff. he went jogging, bowling, rode the subway. >> but before his fever appeared on thursday he did feel sluggish. cdc investigators are trying to track down all of his contacts. >> nick is at the centers for disease control in atlanta. nick, how do the cdc investigators narrow down his contacts because you remember he did take a couple flights before he came to the u.s.? >> reporter: yeah, good morning,
3:52 am
alison. it's one of the biggest challenges investigators have in the cdc, trying to figure out all the contacts that patient zero came in contact with. patient zero is craig spencer. it all starts from scratch. interviews with people to see who he had direct contact with. they do one of two things, determine that that people being evaluated needs to be isolated or quarantined or instead, that person needs to be monitoring for the 21-day period. checking temperatures twice a day. and making sure that the contact doesn't also show signs or symptoms of the ebola virus. you see in dallas county, they say 120 came in contact or had some form of contact with thomas eric duncan. in this case, with dr. craig spencer, they've isolated two of his friends and his fiancee. in all of this process, yes, cdc medical detectives but it's really the county health
3:53 am
officials that take the lead in all of this. >> nick, you were at cdc emory where nurse amber vinson was taken. what's her condition? >> reporter: well, it was very difficult for a long time to get any updates from emory university. you know, we know of hipaa privacy rules and we've got an update yesterday saying she was in good spirits. her latest updates have come back with no signs of the ebola virus. there's no sign of if and when she will be released. we saw that emotional press conference for nina pham the other nurse who came back with the ebola virus. she's back and doing well. and said she's looking at getting in touch with her dog bentley. amber vinson, hopefully, we'll get an update on her condition this weekend or later this week. >> nick valencia live at the centers for disease control in atlanta. this just into cnn, according to the new jersey department of
3:54 am
health, the health worker who had been quarantined at a hospital there in new jersey has tested negative for ebola. now, she had just been treating ebola patients in west africa. we have more at the top of the hour. this is especially interesting because new jersey and new york just sort of superseded the cdcer with their roles. >> yeah. >> and we'll be right back. you want to be the best investor you can be. you want to cut through the noise of an overwhelming amount of analysis.

now for a look at this week's cnn heroes. ♪ 60 years ago, there were probably half a million lions in africa. today, there's less than 30,000 lions in all of africa. if we don't do something soon, there's going to be no lions left maybe in 10, 15 years, who knows. i spent the year living in the community to understand why people are killing lions. it brings a huge amount of prestige to the warrior and in retaliation for lifestock that were killed. they started opening up and telling me stories.
3:59 am
that's when it clicked, if we want to preserve wildlife we have to integrate community. our organize hires warriors and converts killed into lion guardians. [ speaking in a foreign language ] when we first hired lion guardians, they don't know how to read or write. we provide all that literacy training and technical training. they track lions so they can keep very accurate lion data on lion movement. it's founded on multicultural values. and it is just being tweaked a bit to the 21st century. we never would even imagine that we can transform these flying killers to the point where they would risk their own lives to stop people from killing lions. when i first moved here, irepor.
4:00 am
but now i hear lions roaring all the time. >> to photo for the cnn hero of the year, go to our website cnnheroes.com. good morning, i'm alison kosik in for christi paul. >> i'm contradicter blackwell. 7:00 straight up here on the east coast. first this morning, we are learning that a health care worker in new jersey has tested negative for ebola. >> she has been in isolation at a hospital in newark, new jersey, since coming back to the u.s. yesterday from treating patients in west africa. >> and new york and new jersey are ordering a mandatory quarantine for anyone returning from the ebola hot zone there in west africa who had direct contact with an ebola patient. listen. >> we believe it's appropriate to increase the current screening procedures for people coming from affected countries.
4:01 am
>> dallas nurse nina pham is back home after recovering from ebola. her dad greeted her at the airport, and she got a welcome home gift. scrubs signed by her colleagues at texas health presbyterian hospital. >> and at the white house yesterday, pham got a hug from president obama. we got a photo here at that moment. amber vinson, the other dallas nurse diagnosed with ebola, she's still in the hospital. she's expected to be moved from isolation soon. that's good news as well. dr. craig spencer, the first person diagnosed with ebola in new york city. he's in ice racing in bellevue hospital. officials are also retracing the footsteps from the subways, to a bowling alley to an uber taxi as well. what's the latest on dr. spencer's condition? >> reporter: well, maybe a little good news to report here. still in isolation here at bellevue, the last update on his condition he was stable.
4:02 am
we're told he was able to use his cell phone new york city's mayor bill de blasio said he's able to communicate even though he continues to be in isolation. we know three people who had been in close contact with him are also under quarantine. also we're hearing more positive news a preliminary test for ebola for a health care worker who had returned and arrived in newark yesterday from the hot zone she has preliminarily tested negative for ebola. >> the new jersey health care worker who has been quarantined. we know she's tested negative. preliminary tests, are we expecting other tests? and after this negative testing, should we expect to see her removed from isolation? or quarantine, rather. >> reporter: well, at this point -- sure, at this point, what the state department of health in new jersey is saying that she is still in isolation. she's still in quarantine. she's at the hospital and she's being observed by health care
4:03 am
officials. while they did say this was a preliminary test they said at this point they would be consulting with the cdc and department of health to determine if further testing would be needed. this all comes on the heels of new york and new jersey deciding to ramp up their efforts to regulate and restrict people from the hot zone. it was just yesterday that governor ycuomo and governor christie ordered a direct quarantine with anybody who had come in contact with somebody with the virus. this worker who arrived at newark, what we understand from the state department of health is that she did not show any symptoms when she first arrived. they say she developed a fever at the time they were checking her out. that's when the decision was made to bring her to university hospital in new york. that's one of the hospitals prepared to deal with these cases. from there, they did the testing, at this point again, the headline this morning, being that that preliminary test turned out to be negative.
4:04 am
>> good news there. alexandra field, thank you so much. and we've got new details this morning about the student who may have been targeted when a popular freshman opened fire in a crowded high school cafeteria. one girl at marysville-pilchuck high school in washington was killed in what witnesses described as a chaotic and bloody screen. four others, two boys, two girls, are fighting for their lives. our dan simon is following this developing story. >> reporter: hundreds gather at a washington state church seeking comfort just hours about a nearby school shooting. ♪ >> reporter: it was around 10:30 a.m. pacific time. students were gathered in a crowded cafeteria at marysville-pilchuck high school 40 miles north of seattle when fellow students and eyewitnesses say freshman jaylen fryberg opened fire with a handgun
4:05 am
apparently targeting a specific table. >> table he went up to, he came up from behind. and had a gun in his hand. and fired about six bullets into the backs of them. and they were his friends, so, it wasn't just random. >> reporter: students scattered. many in the rest of the building say they thought a fire drill was under way and many ran outside. >> he was sitting behind me, i heard the shots, i fell over. i just got up and saw everyone running and i ran. >> reporter: in the hallways teachers started herding students and someone called from inside the school. >> we 30 students out to the south. >> reporter: going room to room, placing paper over the doors of
4:06 am
those they secured so they know what had been checked. in that process, they discovered the alleged gunman, by noon official say saying he was dead, apparently having shot himself. and in the process, they discover the gunman. by noon officially saying he was dead apparently having shot himself. a female student was also killed in the attack. and four injured students are hospitalized. the grandfather of one of the survivors said the shooter and two of the wounds are related. >> all three of them are cousins. all three of them are cousins and they live right close to each other. >> reporter: fryberg was considered to be a well liked student and the athlete was recently elected homecoming prince. it shows his active engagement with native-american tulalip tribe. he loved the outdoors. smiling and fishing on a boat.
4:07 am
another picture hunting. but turn to twitter, a second more troubling image appears. in recent months, the freshman tweeted multiple times a day. it breaks me, 2 actually does, i know it seems like i'm sweating it off, but i'm not. i'm never going to be able to. i'm tired of this expletive. i'm so expletive done. and 36 hours before this, it won't last. it will never last. >> i heard the guns, and i turned around he's just shooting everyone. there's blood on everywhere. some got on other girls' faces and stuff. >> dan simon joins us from everything red, washington. after the newtown shooting, a lot of schools put in security officers and medtal detectors. do you know how they got there and how jaylen got this on
4:08 am
school grounds. >> reporter: i'm not aware of any efforts to control security. whether or not they had metal detectors. we'll try to get more information from police today. in terms of the weapon, we're told that it was a.40 baretta handgun. obviously, significant injuries, two here at everett hospital where two are said to be in critical condition after suffering what could only be described as horrific injuries. we're also, alison, getting more information in terms of the final moments of what happened here, according to affiliate kiro there was a teacher, a social studies teacher who approached the shooter as things were going on. in the final moments, he tried to grab his arm. and in the process of doing so, the shooter shot himself. certainly should be interesting to hear that account from what
4:09 am
sounds like a very brave woman. the teacher stepping in there. amazing. >> dan simon in marysville, washington. thank you. so that attack by a man with a hatchet on new york police department officers is being called a terror attack. the question here, was he tied to a terror group or was this random? >> and out west, another attack on police in california left two officers dead. those stories and much more coming up. ameriprise asked people a simple question: in retirement, will you have enough money to live life on your terms?
4:10 am
i sure hope so. with healthcare costs, who knows. umm... everyone has retirement questions. so ameriprise created the exclusive confident retirement approach. now you and your ameripise advisor.... can get the real answers you need. start building your confident retirement today. yei could come by your place. my place? uhh... um... hold on. introducing the all-new volkswagen golf. plenty of room for whatever life throws at you.

4:12 am
welcome back to "new day." busy day here. let's get to your "morning read." >> officials are calling a hatchet attack on a group of new york police officers an act of terror. they say the attacker zale h. thompson wasn't tied to any terror group. he is charged with striking a police officer in the back of the head. the officer is still in critical condition. two deputies are dead and

4:14 am
you see rain on the left of the screen -- i see warm, sunny, mostly sunny. >> glad it's the good stuff. >> soaks rainfall, three inches in seattle. two inches in northern california. on the east coast, summerlike. the northeast will see mild fall-like temperatures. friday's shooting tragedy in marysville, washington, left many asking a very familiar question. why? why the violence? why at school? to give us more insight, we're joined by author kathryn newman. she wrote "rampage the social roots of school shootings." why is it that we see these on campuses, why do you think? >> because young men still sense
4:15 am
marginality and what they encounter as adadolescence. and there's a script now for what they follow, and it involves guns. and we've seen this before. >> social media can often give clues. i went through some of his tweets going back to june. i'm a parent, if i saw tweets like that, i'm not making a judgment call here because i'm not the perfect parent, if i saw tweets like that, i would have to find out what's going on because he has seemed anguished since june. i get it that kids can feel drama when they're going through a breakup with relationships, everything's new and they're not used to that kind of thing. at what point do parents feel like they can step in? >> parents don't usually like to see the tweets of our children. we don't like to admit it but our children live in a different world than the one we live in. they can appear on the surface
4:16 am
to be very happy, very popular and live a life of anguish on the inside who had may be visible to their peers who are receiving those tweets. but we give them a zone of privacy because we want them to grow up and become independent people. if we start treating them as appendages of ourselves at 14 we worry they will never grow up. so that zone of privacy is what makes it so difficult for us to understand their terror your world. it's very different than what we see as adults. >> don't you think that parents, i understand that they want to give their kids privacy, shouldn't they also draw the line and say wait a minute, you seem really upset. what's going on here? >> well, if they seem really upset and they see that, perhaps they should draw that line. when you listen to how people describe this young man, they don't describe someone on the surface who is upset. they talk about someone who is elected as the homecoming prince. people say this is the last
4:17 am
person in the world i would expect to do something like this. and that is what they can see on the surface. but i think we will learn more in days to come about how his peers understood him. and generally speaking, from the research i've done the peer world looks very different. very often, sadly, young people will say, yeah, i could see that coming. i didn't need the police to tell me who did this. well, the adults would say, i could have told you 50 other kids i might have expected but not this one. >> kathryn newman. thanks for your analysis. officials are building a case against jesse matthew after confirming the remains they found at abandoned creek bed are those of missing hannah graham. and with a new case of ebola in the u.s., has a time now come for travel ban? some u.s. members of congress who happen to be doctors are calling for one. we're going to speak to one of them.

4:21 am
the toll from one of the world's most dreaded diseases is climbing. the world health organization says 4900 people have now died of that virus. and the number of cases worldwide have surpassed 10,000. republican congressman phil rowe joins us from tennessee. congressman, good to have you with us this morning. >> thanks for having me on. >> the head of the red cross said the travel bans are not the solution. and called them irrational.
4:22 am
it's like you were burning house in your home and started putting wet towels under the door to keep the smoke from himming in. >> that's a similar analogy. let's look at this like when i was in the top medical school. if you have a roomful of people immunized and someone comes in with the disease, they can't give anybody the disease because everyone is protected. if you're in a room where no one has the disease and someone comes in, and that someone contacts the people who is not immunized, you quarantine and isolate those people. it's worked for centuries. we know how to take care of epidemics. the evidence is apparent, with what's going on in the united states, if we had had a travel ban, you would not have a single case of original ebola in the united states. not one. now, can we handle an epidemic in this country? absolutely. and dr. spencer who contracted
4:23 am
ebola taking care of patients in west africa, i want to thank him for going and doing that. mos of us, medical people, practicing medicine on the front line, this is a skilled physician who used precautions and still got the disease once the two nurses did. once you're infected, that's a highly infectious disease. >> let me ask you about -- hopefully, dr. spencer will be -- >> congressman, irate to interrupt but i want to get specifically to the proposal of the travel ban. you say people in sieree yaierr and new guinea, that assumes that that they can't get in doesn't this encourage people who want to get to the u.s. to be evasive? >> you still have -- when i have a passport to travel i have to have a visa to the country i'm
4:24 am
going to. you know exactly where your point of origin is. let me also say that the u.s. military is doing what i just guessed this week. they're going to keep their troops in west african countries to help, thank goodness they are, for ten days. and then quarantine them for a full 21 days once they get back. and they're going to make sure that they don't have ebola break out in the troops. and i think that's a smart thing to do. >> i want to give your response to what we're seeing in new jersey and new york, this requirement for health care workers coming back who had, of course, contact with ebola patients coming to the u.s. the 21-day mandatory quarantine. i did not hear what mandatory means. of course, i know the definition of the word. but are we expecting them to go and visit these people every day. and for someone who i know is a fiscal conservative, that seems pretty expensive.
4:25 am
>> well, let me tell you, it's very inexpensive compared to the cost of treating this disease once it gets in. let me give you an example, just with hazmat and top hospital officials it's about $200 a suit to suit up. by the requirements of the cdc and the way we should be treating these patients, you go in with two people so you can observe each other. so it's very expensive. and hospitals around the country already have spent millions of dollars to prepare for this buying equipment that that he choice wouldn't have. local hospitals in johnston city in kingston, tennessee have spent tens of thousands of dollars plus the training to uptrain the staffs. >> congressman phil roe, we appreciate you talking with us this morning. >> thanks very much for having me on. i hope and pray that the folks that are infected get well. and certainly i hope we restrict the travel so americans don't have to worry about the disease spreading here. >> thank you, sir. alison. the school shooter killed

♪ bottom of the hour now, welcome back, i'm alison kosik. i'm victor blackwell. five things you need to know for your "new day." number one, a tragic end to the search for missing university of virginia student hannah graham. officials have confirmed that
4:30 am
human remains along abandoned creek are those of the 18 who was last seen in september. police are now building the case against the prime suspect jesse matthew. >> number two, protesters doubts are growing that officer wilson will ever be indicted. earlier this week, "the washington post" reported that several black witnesses support the account of officer wilson. he's the officer who shot and killed unarmed teenager back in august. this latest leak from the grand jury proceedings threatens to reignite a heated situation in missouri. number three, the governor of guerrero, mexico, is stepping aside in the wake of a mysterious kidnapping. critics say that he didn't act fast enough when students went missing. the students haven't been found. some activists fear they were turned over to gang members and
4:31 am
murdered. number four, the queen is feeting now. britain's queen elizabeth ii dipped her toe into the 21st century communications yesterday when she posted her first tweet. the monarch signed it hurst, elizabeth r. the inaugural tweet welcomed visitors to a new information age gallery at the science museum in london. >> number five, if you're planning a halloween costume, this may scare you when you see the price tag. the costume is selling for a cool 1.6 million bucks. if that doesn't fit your budget, it also shows a robot costume for $25,000. and a cowboy costume for $2500. >> i always wanted to be a cowboy. let's go now back to the shooting rampage at marysville washington high school. jaylen fryberg targeted a group
4:32 am
of teens whose school mates say were his friends. a grandfather says two of them were his cousins. he killed one of them and wounded four others before they turned the again on himself. officials say the gun he used has been traced to his father. and now investigators are searching the family home. let's bring in cnn legal analyst paul cullen, mel robbins with us as well. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> good morning. he was a freshman, at that age, would he have been permitted to use this kind of gun? the report is he's 14 years old. >> well, in many jurisdictions, even at that age, you're allowed to go to a range and fire a weapon under adult supervision. so it is possible he could have developed familiarity with how to use a weapon of that kind. but to have it in school or on the street is quite a different
4:33 am
matter. >> mel, is there any liability here for the father? >> well, there's two different aspects to discuss, victor, and it's a terrific question, because, you know, as we've reported that sources are saying it's being traced back to his father. i doubt very highly there would be any kind of criminal liability in this case for the father, victor, but perhaps there could be some sort of negligence charge brought in a civil lawsuit for wrongful death or injuries from the other students who were hit, if the father, for example, were negligent in the way that he stored the weapon, victor. >> yes, there is -- victor, i wanted to throw in because i've been involved in a couple of these in new york. and i agree completely with nell, with respect to the difficulty of bringing criminal charges. sometimes, prosecutors will say that leaving a gun where a child can access it is an act of
4:34 am
recklessness or wros criminal recklessness. they might be able to stretch the law to go after the father but usually, it's a civil case for money damages. >> we've seen that in dozens of cases over the last couple of years. let's turn now to the case of this uva student hannah graham, her remains found and identified. suspect jesse is matthew, he's in custody, charged with abduction with intent to defile. i want to say this, paul, and then to nell. now that authorities know that she was possibly murdered, they found the body. would we expect the charges against matthew to change? >> well, most certainly, the charges are going to be boosted with murder charge. he's charged with that odd thing which is abduction with intent to defile. which is an odd charge, but he could face the death penalty,
4:35 am
depending on how authorities decide to charge him. >> with the identification of the remains now there could be a lot of clarity offered here, but also this could muddy the waters in some ways, because a defense attorney could use some of the information that's found at the scene, near the body or on the body, to kind of point to a different person, i'd imagine. >> yeah, you know, that's probe what the defense will do in this case. i mean, it's all a circumstantial case. victor, what's really important, yes, they have identified hannah graham. now we can go forward with first degree murder charges along with the kidnapping and rape charges. however there may be other things at the scene and that's the most important thing, can they connect the defendant to the scene. they know they can connect him to her because he was seen with
4:36 am
her but at the scene. >> and he's being connected to other young women missing in that community. women found dead or never found at all. how do those cases play a role, i guess in prosecuting one another? >> well, here's how this is probably going to play out. they've already charged him now in a rape in fairfax county, 2005. they've got a victim that is alive that's coming forward. they also charged him in that case, victor, with attempted murder. so i think what you're going to see them do is go forward with that case very quickly and hopefully convict him then you take him back to, you know, the charlottesville case which is is morgan harrington and now hannah graham. what we're looking at there, they charged him with the murder of two women but he's now a convicted rapist which changes things dramatically in terms of whether or not he'll ever get on the stand which you'll never see him do. but what the prosecutors are
4:37 am
going to try to do is try to get leverage here. nobody ever tries these cases -- we want to get this monster in jail for the rest of his life. we want information about other bodies and we want these families to move on with their lives. >> thank you both. >> thank you, victor. >> thank you. our coverage continues on the ebola crisis. and we're live at the white house and the cdc. first, let's go to erin mcpike. what do you have coming up? >> alison, well, we learned from the obama administration overnight on the decision in new york and new jersey on quarantining, the white house is still evaluating whether to take that approach. coming up here at the cdc, we'll talk to you about contact tracing. the biggest challenge for medical detectives in trying to stop the spread of the ebola virus. you're watching cnn "new day saturday."

cnn's erin mcpike has more for us this morning. >> reporter: president obama hugging nurse nina pham to show americans the ebola scare is under control. just minutes after her doctor did the same. >> she is cured of ebola. let's get that clear, okay? that's for sure. >> and on my way back to recovery, even as i reflect on how many others have not been so fortunate. >> i think this also should be a pretty apt reminder that we do have the best medical infrastructure in the world. >> reporter: the white house given the alarm over a new ebola patient, a doctor in new york city, was quick to point out one of the cdc s.w.a.t. teams the president ordered was on the case. >> i'm told that the s.w.a.t. team actually arrived in new york the same evening that this individual was a confirmed ebola patient. >> reporter: but on capitol hill, a national nurses union leader called the overall response dangerously inconsistent and inaccurate.
4:43 am
>> no nation would ever contemplate sending soldiers into the battlefield without armor and weapons. give us the tools we need. all we ask from president obama and congress is not one more infected nurse. >> reporter: and republicans continue to question why the president named apolitical aide, ron klain, to coordinate the effort. >> all of his medical and infectious disease, communicable disease, health care recovery background. >> you know, one of the terrific thing about the way government works together, experts come together all the time. >> i'm going to take that answer as he has none. >> erin joins us live out the white house. erin, tell us more about what happened at the hearing yesterday on the government's response to ebola. >> you know, victor, as you heard there, there was still a lot of criticizing of ron klain and white white house chose him. he was not at that hearing, but we did learn from the white house that he will be meeting
4:44 am
with new york and new jersey officials this coming week to talk about that decision on quarantining. and he will also be traveling to the cdc this upcoming week, victor. >> erin mcpike outside the white house. alison. and the race is on, the cdc has to find people who may have had contact with the new york doctor who has ebola. dr. craig spencer arrived back in new york city last friday from guinea where he was treating patients with the deadly virus. and for almost an entire week since returning, dr. spencer was feeling well. so he did normal stuff. he went jogging. he went bowling. he even rode the subway, in contact with a lot of people. nick valencia is live at the centers of disease control headquarters in atlanta. so, nick, tell me about the progress that detectives are making on finding these people that dr. spencer may have had contact with. >> good morning, alison. it really say race against the
4:45 am
clock for these medical detectivie ivs to try to pig ouo dr. craig spencer had contact with. it really starts with patient zero, that's spencer. they will evaluate people for the 28-day period seeing if they have signs on symptoms or they will quarantine them. we have three people including his fiancee and two friends who are currently being monitored and quarantined for the symptoms. health officials say they are doing well. really, alison, this is about public perception who had may have been at the bowling alley or shared the sunway with spencer. we know he technically didn't have symptoms until he had signs of that fever. but in the day establishing that fever, health officials reiterated he didn't have those symptoms until he developed a fever, alison.
4:46 am
>> which brings me to this. dr. spencer said he was feeling sluggish before developing a fever on thursday. so does that mean health officials have to expand the time frame and expand the locations of possibly ebola infections? >> well, it certainly has them take a look of how wide of a net they have to cast here. but part of their message to the public is trying to temper the alarmists. trying to rain in the public perception of fear and anxiety. surrounding this virus, it's unprecedented the virus at the door step. we have to make sure that they're safe. we know from covering this and from science, there is no way to transmit this deadly virus until this patient is showing symptoms or signs. unless there is direct contact. unless bodily fluids are exchanged. we saw them this week come out and say there's no reason for new yorkers in that area, in that area that spencer lives in
4:47 am
to be them to be concerned. unless they came in direct contact just three people that are currently being monitored and quarantined. >> i just want to ask you quickly, i know you're at the cdc in emory where nurse amber vinson is. tell me about her condition. >> we got a quick update from her hospital here at emory next door to the cdc. they say that the latest blood test for vinson came back clear of the virus. there's to date or expectation of her release. >> thanks, nick. turn to the television and look at this. [ shot ] >> that's an air bag exploding here. part of a massive recall. and the expansion could now go nationwide. have a heart attack. but i did. i'm mike, and i'm very much alive.
4:48 am
now my doctor recommends a bayer aspirin regimen to help prevent another heart attack. be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen. that's the way i look at life. looking for something better. especially now that i live with a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. i was taking warfarin, but wondered if i kept digging, could i come up with something better. my doctor told me about eliquis... for three important reasons. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three, unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop.
4:49 am
seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why eliquis is a better find for me. ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you. ♪

almost 8 million cars being recalled because their air bags may explode and put sharp metal objects into the drives and passengers. >> but that recall could expand and go nationwide after four deaths have been linked to the defect. rené marsh reports on the latest in this investigation. >> alison, victor were more cars could be recalled over exploding air bags that shood metal shrapnel at passengers. that comes from a senior
4:52 am
administration official. the focus is vehicles in states with warm humid climates. meantime, federal prosecutors are looking into weather japanese air bag manufacturer was truthful about what it knew about the defects. and the lawmakers are questioning if the government agency that handles recalls is doing enough to keep drivers and passengers safe. this week the national safety traffic administration put out an urgent warngts warning to nearly 8 million car owners to immediately get defective air bags replaced. some air bags manufactured by takata they explode so fast they could cause serious injury and death. at first they say that 4.5 million vehicles are infected but later corrected that, it's actually near 8 million.

good news, bad news, what do you want first in. >> good news. >> the weekend weather is going to be beautiful and sunny. bad news is it's also going to be soaking wet and windy. depends on where you live. >> let's start with where we are, the east coast rnl's start with the east coast. that's where the better weather is. good morning, mooum. this is a beautiful sunrise for you. you have had a rough week as far as weather goes. your weather is improving finally. still a little choppy on the offshore waters. going to continue to see sunshine and nice temperatures. in fact all up and down the east coast looking good. a little above normal but nothing compared to what we're going to see in the west, the midwest, i should say. temperatures will be running five to 15 degrees above normal,
4:58 am
memphis getting in on that, 83 degrees today. your average is. 1. atlanta, we'll be about six degrees above normal. lots of sunshine. it is going to be nice for much of the country. a lot of the warm air just feeding in. if problem area will be the pacific northwest. we have seen a lot of rain over the last week or so. still seeing the rain come down. soaking rains, high wind gusts and also the snow levels have dropped to 4500 feet. do plan on airport delays if you're traveling through seattle. the rain come in this morning, we're going too see another round of it through the afternoon. it's going to stretch as far south as northern and central california. really need to rain in california. don't need it so much in the pacific northwest. and it could impact the game tonight in san francisco. the giants and the royals so we're going to be watching for that. >> we're going to check back with you in a little bit. much more news to tell you about
4:59 am
this morning. >> the next hour of your "new day" starts right now. it was popular, friendly, the homecoming prince. so how did this high school freshman become a killer? listen, this morning we're learn more about the chaos in the high school cafeteria and more about the victims fighting for their lives. after a new york doctor tests positive for ebola, the city try to reassure a nervous public. now strict new rules in the big apple and new jersey for those coming back into the country. a tragic end to a mystery in virginia. the remains of sophomore hannah graham now identified. now focus is shifting to the man police expect may be responsible. food morning, i'm allison kosik in for christine paul. >> there are fast moving developments this morning in the ebola crisis.
5:00 am
>> a health worker who has been quarantined overnight at a new jersey hospital has now tested negative in a preliminary test. she arrived in newark liberty airport yesterday. >> under new rules, anyone who arrives in nerk or new york after having direct contact with an ebola patient in africa will face mandatory quarantine for 21 days. listen. more than 4900 people have now died from that disease, the vast majority of them in west africa. and there are more than 10,000 cases of ebola now worldwide. one of the latest victims, a two-year-old girl in maly. let's go to zrnt field without bellevue hospital. dr. craig spencer is still in the hospital there. how is he doing? >> reporter: he is in the hospital in the isolation unit. he's been closely watched.
5:01 am
but we're hearing pretty encouraging signs, first of all that he's well enough to be carrying on conversations. he's also been able to use his cell phone. ap last update his condition is described as stable. >> help us understand the retracing that's happening now of dr. spencer's movements before he went into the hospital. >> reporter: yeah. okay. the big concern with this really is just the idea simply of having an ebola patient here in new york city. and again he is in isolation at bellevue but there are obviously concerns among the public about this virus. so health officials and state and local government officials have been proactive to educate people. they've been out there retracing this man's steps to see who he came in contact with. we know that the virus is spread through contact of bodily fluid. three people that were in close contact with him were put into
5:02 am
quarantine. officials are trying to tell people the risk is nil. still precautions are being taken. naturally his apartment had been cleaned. there was a bowling alley. a lot of steps being taken to quell fears, calm any public anxiety about the virus. this is not easily contracted. >> a big change overnight in new york and new jersey. new york's governor says it's not a time to take any chances. explain what's changing? >> the city expected that they were going to have an ebola case. they prepared with eight hospitals ready to accept the patients. now they're stepping up guidelines and restrictions beyond what the federal recommendation is. what's happening now in new jersey and new york, any
5:03 am
passengers arriving from the hot zone who have had direct contact with ebola patients we that will be put into quarantine and then it's up to officials to determine whether or not those individuals should sb hospitalized. new york's governor andrew cuomo explained the thinking about these extra measures. here's what he said. >> we feel it's important to do this for the people coming from the infected countries. we believe it is in the state of new york and state of new jersey's legal rights to control access to their borders. >> reporter: one woman has already been affect bid the policy. a health care worker working in west africa arrived in nerk last night. she was checked out. they took her to a hospital and put her in isolation but preliminary reports show she is negative for the ebola virus.
5:04 am
>> thank you so much. in the meantime, the 26-year-old texas nurse infected with ebola is cured and back home. but on the way home nina pham made a quick stop at the white house to give the president a hug and to show the country that yes, she is indeed free of the deadly virus. erin pike joins us live. >> reporter: it was a bit of a surprise. i was at the nih when fee that pham came out for this press conference and they had to move the press conference earlier because of course she was going to meet with the president and this was really to send a message. certainly by hugging the president inside the oval office, they're trying to send the message that she is just fine and the public is fine and there shouldn't be this mass hysteria and fear that they can get these cases under control. >> i know that there was a hearing on ebola yesterday on capitol hill.
5:05 am
are lawmakers upset with how the government is responding to ebo ebola? >> reporter: there's no question that they are. a couple of things came out of that hearing. the first is this idea of the quarantining. now specifically, there are about 3,000 troops who are going or have gone already to some of the countries in west africa that are affected and lawmakers were asking should they be quarantined for longer. right now it's a ten-day period. there is talk should they make it 21 days. there was also the co-president of the national nurses united, and she made the case that nurses need better equipment, more protective equipment and better training and that many of them feel they have been inadequately trained to deal with ebola. the last is that they said there should be more preparation from the cdc. and then on pal ticks, there were lots of questions on why
5:06 am
the white house choose a lawyer rather than a health professional. >> thanks. and we are getting -- okay. we're getting new details about a brave teacher who apparently tried to stop a school shooter as his deadly spree was unfolding. we also have new information about the students who may have been targeted when a popular freshman began spraying bullets in a crowded high school cafeter cafeteria. >> one girl that was killed yesterday in what witnesses described as a chaotic and bloody scene. now four others fighting for their lives. the shooter jalen fryberg ultimately turned the gun on himself. >> dan simon jins us live from ef vet, washington. tell us what you've learned about this teacher.
5:07 am
>> reporter: yeah, we're still trying to learn what happened in the final moments. but according to our affiliate, this teacher who just start thd year at the school, she thought social studies that when this was all unfolding, she actually ran towards the shooter and tried to grab his arm and in the process of going so, the shooter shot himself. now the question comes to what degree that actually altered the outcome. we don't know that but certainly sounds like a very brave woman. >> what really stands outside this morning is the relationship between the shooter and these victims, not just classmates but they were much closer than even friends in a couple of cases. >> reporter: no question about it. and it really tells you that this was not a random shooting, that the shooter targeted specific people. we're hearing that two of the people who are wounded were actually his cousins. that's according to the grandfather of one of those who was shot.
5:08 am
so what we're hearing is that the shooter approached a table of students, he obviously knew what they were. there this was not a random shooting. he approached them from the back and started firing so it's possible that some of these victims did not see it coming. >> do you know how fryberg got this weapon to carry this out? >> reporter: we're told by sources that the weapon is registered to his father. this was a.40 ber rhett that handgun. this was a person, a shooter that seemed to be comfortable with weapons. if you look at the pictures on social media, you often see him holding a rifle. he was an avid hunter and fisherman. but this appeared to be a handgun and a high capacity one at that. >> dan, thank you so much. >> and officials now confirm that human remains found in virginia are that of missing teen hannah graham. and that attack we a man

honey boo boo" has been canceled. it has been canceled because word came that the mom is dating a sex offender. shannon has denied she's seeing the man. "honey boo boo" is one of the network's most popular shows. bringing 4 million viewers in its fourth and final season. the kansas city royals are in control of the world series two games to one after slipping past the giants last night with a score of 4-2. game four kicks off tonight at 8:00. look at this, the storm system that you're looking at in the northwest, it's going to bring soaking rainfall to the northwest, up to four inches in seattle. but if you live on the east coast, it's summer-like in the south. the northeast will see mild fall-like temperatures.
5:14 am
and as we reported at the top of the hour, the number of ebola deaths is rapidly climbing. according to the world health organization, there are now more than 4900 and the total number of cases has surpassed 10,000. the worst affected countries are still liberia, guinea and see ra sierra leone. new york and new jersey issued mandatory quarantine for travelers coming from west africa. how effective will this policy will. >> i don't think it will be effective at all except it will make us less safe from ebola. first of all, we're quarantining people now who have no symptoms who with know pose no public health risk and the problem with that is it stops volunteers from wanting to go to africa. it is much were much harder to
5:15 am
know if you know your movements will be this restricted. they rushed it in. today we saw a nurse being kwarn teend after a long journey and a difficult mission. no information about what was going on in the airport. not a kind set of practices and an absolutely unnecessary set. govern governor christie saying they're airing on the side of caution. if they believe it is the right thing to do, why on earth wasn't it done months ago? can we not have anticipated that a doctor would not want to go bowling and eat meet balls. i would strongly say this isn't going to help. >> isn't it better to be cautious at this point? these health care workers, th they're healered as heros. but when they get back here, in the case of dr. spencer, ten
5:16 am
days he felt good, went bowling. and he was responsible in calling the hospital when needed, when he felt the symptoms. but the health care workers are in the line of fair. they're in direct contact with the ebola victims. what kind of sort of criminal can there be to make sure that they indeed quarantine themselves when they get here? >> very interesting question. so we hear from governor cuomo yesterday say in a city like new york he could have spread it to hundreds of people and rewe absolutely know that isn't true. he wasn't sich mattic and therefore it would be virtually impossible for him to spread it to anyone. the only people who are at significant risk are his girlfriend and close contacts. so the risks of him going on a subway and going out are really as close to zero as any doctor is ever going say. and the organization he was working for, doctors without borders with, they're not some rink ki ding charitable
5:17 am
organization. they're expert at dealing with e be lap. their protocol is an idle protocol. it's been rigorously gone through. they've been using it for months. and the issue is if we quarantine the 700 volunteers they've got in the field as they come back, you lose 40 years, something like 40 years of productive manpower and gain no benefit whatsoever. that's the important thing to say here is we don't reduce the risk of catching ebola by quarantining people who can't spread ebola. >> you say they can't spread ebola, of course they can. anything is possible. what to you do with the health care workers who have spent a lot of time in these three hot zones. what's the answer here? you didn't let them go into the public right when they get back, right? >> r. >> i would say dr. spencer was about as -- it would be as possible for him to spread ebola on a subway in the condition he was in as it would be to spread
5:18 am
hiv. it's possible you could cut an artery open, cut yourself, get blood on somebody else. maybe you could spread it that way. but the risks are that low. he's got probably unmeasurably low levels of virus in his blood. when we see the health care workers getting ebola, they're dealing with people who have massively high levels of the virus in their blood. although you say anything is possible, of course you're right, we know that he wasn't sick on the subway. we know he didn't have diarrhea. he didn't cut himself open. we know that because the city said we don't need to steerize the subway. >> is feeling sluggish -- he was talking about feeling sluggish before he even showed the fever. is feeling sluggish symptomatic of having ebola? is that a symptom? >> the science that we have the virus prefever is very hard to detect and very, very hard to
5:19 am
pass on to the point where it would not be possible to pass it on a subway without doing something like bleeding all other someone. so no, i'd say the sluggishness, who knows why he was feeling sluggish. possibly it was a precursor of the ebola favor. but he reported his fever. he was doing everything he was supposed to do. that's what the public officials say and that's what the science says. >> thanks so much for you time this morning. >> thank you. a massive auto recall could get bigger now. more cars could join the list of vehicles needing new air bags because they could explode with potentially deadly consequences. question: in retirement, will you outlive your money? uhhh. no, that can't happen. that's the thing, you don't know how long it has to last. everyone has retirement questions. so ameriprise created the exclusive..

5:23 am
the pressure is mounting for the government to issue a nationwide safety recall for millions of cars with potentially faulty air bags. >> i want you to look at this. look at your screen. some of the most pop you loor auto makers are affected. the list includes toyota, honda, ford, gm and chrysler. the potential of the air bags to explode pummelling people with metal shrapnel. one woman was killed in florida last week. at first they actually thought she had been stabbed to death. i want to bring in the executive director for the center of auto safety. this morning to you is putting millions of people at risk and it could take years to fix. tell me this. why hasn't the government issued a recall that goes nationwide?
5:24 am
>> the auto companies are resisted it, the government has caved in. the first known failure was in 2004, the first recalls, in 2008 and '09. and americans are continued to die on the road due to this effect and many more have been injured. >> when you say that about the government, do you sigh the government has known about this and kind of dropped the ball? >> absolutely. this is a gm ignition switch all over again. the government actually looked at this in 2010, said to takata and honda, said are you sure that this initial recall is big enough? they said yes it is. the government closed its investigation, and then we had all of the more vehicle ons the road with this. and it wasn't until this year that they finally did a recall of about eight million vehicles. but we need to get over 20 million vehicles recalled, not just the hot states. >> i'm sure supply and demand is
5:25 am
a huge issue for takata. not only do they have to replace the air bags, they have to keep up the demand for the new models. how can the company with stand that? >> they can do it. this is not business as usual. you put on additional lines at the factory. the government can order honda and the other manufacturer to go out and purchase air bags are other companies other than takata. the main thing is to get the air bags in these cars as soon as possible. that certainly can be done this year and the government isn't doing the job? >> why is it that nitsa is dropping the ball? they dropped the ball with the gm recall and now this one. the serge engine went down and people couldn't check to see if their car was on the list. what's it going to take for nitsa to do its job, take responsibility and
5:26 am
accountability for this? >> they need a leader at that agency that says safety is job number one. and no matter how it look to the auto companies, we're going to be tough on you. and second, they need to be given more investigators. gm has twice as many defect investigators as do the federal government which has to look at every single car company in this country. >> and what about t action kaka could be looking at a lot of lawsuits. >> yes. but you're the manufacturer. you make defective air bag and it injuries or kills somebody, you're on the hook for the liability. but more than anything they need to make sure that the air bags they're making now are right and they need to put people working 24/7 to make safe air bags and get them in the cars as soon as possible.

welcome back. i'm alison kosik jts i'm victor blackwell. >> let's get caught up on one of our top stories. the grandfather of a frshman who went on a shooting spree says two students wounded in the attack were cousins of the gunman. >> one girl was killed at the high school in washington and two more students were injured. >> police say the shooter then killed himself. classmates say he was popular but recently got suspended for fighting. >> some of the witnesses to yesterday's deadly shooting rampage in marysville, washington described chaos and panic. joining me by phone is alex peach, a 15-year-old marysville pilchuck student who was in the cafeteria and saw the gun that was used in this attack. i know so short after this, so soon after what happened yesterday it's probably difficult to speak with me but i appreciate it. tell me what you saw, what you heard and what happened in the
5:32 am
cafeteria. >> all right. so -- well i was in the cafeteria. i was just like any normal day. nothing seemed out of order. but i heard four shots then i looked behind me and i see a gun pointed at somebody. i don't know if the person was on the ground because it looked like they were shooting at their feet. but i look and as soon as i saw the gun, though, i ran towards the wall and i was hearing more shots, but not exactly sure because everything was happening so fast. but after that i just ran out of the exit. and i called my mom. >> those four shots you heard, were they back to back in quick succession or were they spaced out over a period? >> they were quick. >> okay. and you say that you ran out. i imagine we see video of the
5:33 am
students running out of the school now. describe for me this escape for these hundreds of students. we know there are 2,000 at the school. but hundreds of students who were in that area. >> well not a lot of the kids got out. i only had about 20 kids with me that got out of the same area. i know a lot of people stayed in the cafeteria and i don't know why. i don't know how the other kids got out. i think there were a lot of kids outside too, so they just left because they heard the shots. >> alex, do you know the victims here? >> i know some of them. >> what can you tell us about them in. >> well, they were very great people. they're so nice to me. all they wanted to tell me was, you know, how, you know -- it's really sad for me to talk about it. but they're just great people in
5:34 am
general inside and out. >> i know it's difficult to talk about when this happens with people you're so close to. were you close to jalen as well? was he a friend? >> not really. i mean i knew of him. and everyone kind of says he's a good person. but i don't know. >> did you go to the -- we know there was a vigil there last night. did you go to that vigil? >> i couldn't make it. but i saw awill of tweets about it and pictures. everyone is so supportive. i talked to people that went. there's people from the harbor that went and all this stuff from other schools. it was so great hearing of all of the support. >> you said just briefly there that it's difficult to talk about. explain what you're feeling this morning. >> well, i don't know.
5:35 am
it's just like i'm kind of in shock still. and like it's sad hearing about people that go to my school, like, have gone through the this. i didn't think that freshmen that are 14 years old would have to go through this. and not a lot of people do. and they didn't get much to live more and they had so much to live for. >> we no that in addition to the shooter taking his own tlief there was one other girl who was killed and four students who are in the hospitals there in washington state. we know that they are in the icu there. so likely not a television in front of them. but i'm sure possibly their families and their friends may be watching. what would you like to say to them. your friends who are now fighting for their lives. >> well i would just like to say that i hope they keep fighting
5:36 am
and that they are resting in peace in a very good place. everyone is here for them. everyone is supporting them and everyone loves them. >> we share that sentiment as well. alex peach from marysville in washington. i know it was difficult but we appreciate you sharing your perspective, your story of what happened there yesterday. thank you so much. >> you're welcome. >> so heartbreaking. ebola czar. it's been week one despite for par san calls for someone to head up the disease, ran klain became a controversial pick. but just how is he doing on the job? more after this.

some positive signs in the ebola crisis this mark. authorities say a health worker who was quarantined overnight another a new jersey hospital after arriving from west africa is negative for ebola in a preliminary test. she's still going to remain quarantined for 21 days and that's under the new ebola restrictions in new jersey and new york. the first patient diagnosed with ebola in new york city, dr. krig spencer remains in the hospital and said to be doing well. haes talking on his phone and even doing yoga. in new york official sas a man who attacked a group of police officers was a self radicalized terrorist. he struck one of the officers on the back of the head. that officer is still in critical condition. business zi controversial week for the people fighting 0 ba la. but how about for the ebola
5:41 am
czar. we don't know. we've not heard or seen him much or you know, nothing really from the new czar despite all of the recent ebola news. dr. craig spencer was diagnosed, yesterday nina pham was declared ebola free, making a visit to the white house sharing a hug with the white house. joining me now, the senior director. good to have you both with us this morning. lisa, good week or bad week for ron klain or is it too soon to decide. >> it's been a tough week for him. we have another case of ebola in the united states. and it feeds the perception that president obama and the health officials do not have ebola under control. ron klain has reportedly missed two white house ebola related meetings and he skipped a
5:42 am
congressional meeting. in reality. she should never have been chosen to be the czar in the first place. >> how about that. we didn't go to friday's congressional hearing. part of the show of force and control is the show. >> well, but also i think the most important part is to make sure that the response to what's going on with ebola in this country is more coordinated, is smooth, and that all of the federal agencies that are tasked with anything having to do with anything responding to ebola are talking to each other and that's exactly what yawee been seeing this week. as soon as dr. spencer started showing signs of symptoms of ebola, ron klain sent the rapid response cdc team to new york. let's put this in perspective here. there has not been one person who maz catted ebola in the united states that have died. the two people that have contracted it in the united states are now ebola free. there's only one person that has
5:43 am
ebola symptoms in the united states right now and he contracted it in west africa. and he is now in isolation. they are tracking everybody that he's come into contact with. all of the airports that are now receiving people from west africa have heightened systems in place where they can track efb who has come in and everybody who they cam into contact with. so let's really keep this in perspective. ron klain hit the ground running -- >> you think missing two meetings? >> -- making sure that everybody was talking to each other. his position and his responsibility was not to be the spokesperson for ebola. >> skipping out on two important meeting -- >> hold on. >> his responsibility was to coordinate all of the agencies that have any type of responsibility for responding to ebola and that's exactly what's happening here. >> lisa, let me come to you about rand paul, senator rand paul, possible presidential candidate. he is says he doesn't want to
5:44 am
create panic but, he stood his his belief that the virus is more contagious that than the government is letting on. people are getting it full gown, masked and must be getting a tiny e knock lum and they're getting it still. and then you lose more confidence because they're telling you stuff that may not be exactly valid and they're downplaying it so much that it doesn't appear that they're really being honest about it. seems like a conspiracy theorists here if we were to listen to this from any other person that a member of the senate. >> it's clear that this administration or health officials are really overestimated america's preparedness. >> i hear that. i wan you to respond to what rand paul is saying, that the government isn't being honest. let's deal with rand paul. >> what we've seen is that the administration seems to be --
5:45 am
>> rand paul is what the question is about, lisa. he says it's more contagious, saying you can get it at a cocktail party. is he a conspiracy theorist? >> i don't think i would go that far. cdc said 1.5 million people could be infected by ebola by january. it's claimed 36 million lives since the 1980s. this. this is a serious disease and i would like see the obama administration and health officials taking this serious. >> >> maria. rand paul. >> shame on senator paul. and if he hasn't already disqualified himself for being a serious candidate going into 2016, this certainly helps do that. i mean, come on, this is absolutely ridiculous. our leaders should be working together to make sure that our responses continue to be smooth and continue to be quick the way they have been been this past
5:46 am
week. senator paul, the only thing that he's doing is focusing on the real epidemic here which is the epidemic of fear and panic that he himself is spreading among voters. but when you're a republican party who has absolutely nothing to offer in terms of a protective agenda for america's voters, i guess i don't blame him because there's nothing else that he or the republican party has to run on right now. >> let's talk about donald trump, which is a phrase i don't like to say often. but he's criticizing president obama again. he's called some assistant into his office to hold a cell phone and shoot a video for instagram. let's watch. >> we have a tremendous problem in new york because president obama would not stop the flights. so now we've got ebola. he should be ashamed. >> lisa, i'll just hand that to
5:47 am
you. >> look, i don't know always agree with donald trump but i agree with him on this. it's agreeing with the more than three-quarters of americans who want to see some sort of temporary travel ban from ebola stricken nations. it's not just republicans that are calling for this. if you look at someone like a liberal democrat, alan grayson from florida, he's calling for a travel band. what he pointed out is mrn than 25 nations have placed a temporary band on ebola stricken nations. further he stated that look, we won't let people come into the united states who haven't been vaccinated against the whooping cough. i think it makes a lot of sense. >> maria, even some democrats are calling for a travel ban. >> you also have to focus on the science here and i'm sure that that's not something that donald trump really understands. so luckily i don't think a lot of voters are listening to him
5:48 am
when it comes to issue of medicine or of infectious diseases, thank goodness. let's look at the science. a lot of doctors have said that imposing a travel ban will actually make this worse when the united states is a leader in going to west africa to really try to control the epidemic because that's the only way that everyone in the united states is going to feel safe at the end of the day and we're doing that. a travel ban is not going to help. let's look at the science here. which i understand that republicans don't believe in science which is probably the problem. >> that's categorically incltru >> thank you very much. hannah graham's heartbroken parents are learned that human remains found in virginia are that of their lit ill girl. the latest on information on the suspect jesse matthews coming up.

for a missing university of virginia student hannah graham. officials confirmed that human remains discovered along an abandoned creek bed are those of the 18-year-old. her devastated parents said they were hoping for a happier ending but due to the that nasty and determination of shore charlottesville police chief, hannah is coming home to us and we'll be eternally grateful to him for that. >> jane casarez joins us live with this. >> it's not over at all. >> she needs to try to find the cause and manner of death. and when you're dealing with skel tell remains, the cause of death can be extremely difficult because many times who caused that death has been deteriorated away so you continue know. but i think that's the next
5:53 am
thing we need to look for. and then, while that is going on, from everything that ai've learned from my law enforcement, the only article of clothing they've found is the pants. they haven't found her blouse or top. but the pants are going to be the most critical thing that they have because they've got to try to find foreign dna on this to find out who did this to hannah graham. if they find the dna from jesse matthew with everything else they have, the video surveillance, the items collected from his car and apartment, the charges could be upgraded to murder. >> we know that jesse matthew is the prime suspect here. he hasn't been convicted with anything were hasn't been charged with murder. he's been charged with abduction. what about his next court appearance? >> december 4th is the next
5:54 am
court appearance. that could be easily continued meaning they push it back and don't have it, go on. i think it's slow process now because dna does not show identification overnight. it's a tenuous process that they have to do. and the quality of the dna that they have. i guess we're just going to have to wait and watch. anything could happen at any time. but the first thing is try to determine the cause of death and determine how she died. >> thanks so much for you time. >> thanks everybody for dealing with that bit of a technical issue there. strong winds, rain, already began in northwest part of the country. which could mean air travel delays in other parts of the country. we'll get you ready for the weekend next.
