>> fence or wall. no, it's a big wall. it's ugly. it's really ugly. you can see it, it's not far away from here. ♪ we heard some shots. we heard some more shots. everybody kind of hit the ground and people started to run. >> a rampage aft los angeles international airport kills one tsa officer and injures several other people. we now have new details on who the shooter is and what his real mission may have been. >> he proceeded up into the screening area where tsa screeners are and continued shooting. and went past the screeners, back into the airport itself. >> could it happen anywhere?
a former fbi assistant director answers the question, was the l.a.x. shooting a freak incident or is it amazing it doesn't happen more often? my objective is to discover the truth. and i believe that can only be done by gatheringing all of the evidence. >> and it's the story that cnn has pursued for six months. a new information into the death of kendrick johnson. it's bringing hope to his family that the truth of his death will be revealed. good morning. i'm alison kosik. >> it's a pleasure to be with you. i'm victor blackwell. 6:00 here on the east coast. this is "new day saturday." and we're starting with the big breaking news that's happened yesterday and developed overnight. terminal 3 at los angeles international airport is closed this morning, as investigators are now piecing together why a
gunman took aim at tsa officers. the suspect's identified now as 23-year-old paul ciancia. overnight, we learned about a series of text that sent his family members that concerned them so much that they contacted police. friday's rampage left one tsa officer dead, two more injured. a video shot by one person at the airport and given to tmz, it really shows the chaotic moments after the shooting started. watch this. >> everybody on the floor! on the floor now! on the floor! >> get down. get down. >> there! >> on the floor. >> go! >> hold on, you guys. >> go, go!
[ bleep ] this is crazy! >> i source tells cnn that ciancia was shot several times in the chest and new video appears to be taken from l.a.x. look at this video exclusively shot to be from kcal, the wounded man is said to be ciancia. you see the suspect's wrist handcuffed to the gurney. cnn's dan simon joins me more from los angeles with more. dan, what details are you learning? how did all of this go down? >> reporter: well, good morning, allison. at this point, we don't know the motive of the shooter but it seems pretty concern that he wanted to target tsa members in particular. in the meantime, terminal 3 is still closed. it's not clear when it will reopen. >> it's got to be a major, major
incident working here at l.a.x. >> reporter: los angeles international airport, 9:20 a.m. local time. the fbi says 23-year-old paul anthony ciancia enters terminal 3, pulls a rifle from a bag and opens fire. >> he proceeded up into the screening area where tsa screeners are, and continued shooting and went past the screeners, back into the airport itself. >> reporter: at the security checkpoint, tsa officers who are not armed are shot. one, 39-year-old giraldo hernandez is killed. he is the first tsa officer to die in the line of deputy since the agency was established in 2001. authorities say after shooting his way through this security checkpoint, ciancia manages to make it all the way down this hallway. they say he is stopped by police in the food court area. hundreds run for their lives. >> it was a complete panic. people were screaming. i saw children crying.
>> pure and utter mayhem. i mean, people were tripping over each other on the floor. bags everywhere. crying, screaming. >> everybody started like flying down the hallway. they were just like jumps over chairs. jumping over people. hiding. and we were kind of trapped at the end of the terminal. >> reporter: trapped with nowhere else to escape some passengers run into the airport tarmac. others use anything they can to protect themselves. >> the first shot just kind of caught us off guard. the second shots went in, i grabbed luggage and i started making walls and walls out of luggages. i saw the guy walking towards the escalator, he just went past us. >> reporter: after making it hundreds of feet in the terminal, the gunman is shot by police multiple times in the chest and lives. though the motive is still unclear, a federal law enforcement officials said investigators found information on the suspect expressing anti-federal government is sentiment, and also anger at the
tsa specifically. but what is clear, the gunman was intent on causing much more destruction. authorities say he had additional ammunition. >> there were more than 100 more rounds that could have literally killed everybody in that terminal. >> reporter: well, airport police, fortunately, were able to take down the suspect. but cnn has learned that airport police were actually removed from tsa checkpoints earlier this year. they had been there in the after math since 9/11, but a decision had been made to allow them to roam throughout the terminal, as long as they were no more than two minutes away at a checkpoint. it certainly raises questions, allison, had they been there at the checkpoints are perhaps they could have engaged the suspect earlier and not allowed him to breach the area. >> that's a good question, dan simon at l.a.x. thank you. >> we're learning more about the messages we mentioned at the top of the show. his family is from the town of
pennsville, new jersey. police say the family is shocked. one family member recently received a very disturbing text from the suspect. >> basically, the text message was just a message to the little brother. and the way it was written, they had some concern about it, that's when they brought it to our attention. >> now, the pennsville police contacted the lapd to do a well-being check on ciancia at his apartment but he was not there when officers talked to his roommates. >> to be honest with you, i don't think we were able to connect any of this together. you know, small town like pennsville. you know, we followed it up, our procedure is if someone is concerned about a family member, we call that local police department and do a well-being check. and that's basically what we did. it came back he wasn't home. lapd advised me they would basically contact us as soon as they made contact with us so i could alert the family he was okay. at that point, i actually discovered from the ap, you
know, that paul was the suspect. >> an intelligence tells cnn the recent text to the family were, quote, angry, rambling messages venting about the government, his life in los angeles and his general unhappiness. but despite that, his family was surprised as are people who knew ciancia. >> i haven't had any personal reactions with him. from what i've seen and heard, he was just a normal person. you know, everyday guy. you know, friendly. you would never -- like, even right now, i'm still trying to process that this really happened. did they get the wrong guy. because if they told me they got the wrong guy it would make a lot more sense to me. >> of course, crews the country are learning to get more information not only about ciancia but the victims as well. what this means for airport security, when you walk into an airport, especially like here in atlanta, it's like a small mall. >> many airports are like that, too. just imagine, if you had
security to get into the facility itself. there would be a backup just to get into the building. you really have to question if it will go over well. >> are people going to tolerate that backup? we'll talk about that. also on "new day saturday," police say a georgia teenagers death was an accident but this family said it was murder. >> now searching for answers. it's the story cnn has been on top of for months. is this the bacon and cheese diet?

>> this is now all following cnn's ongoing investigation for more than six months now. we've uncovered new requests and filed record requests for johnson's death. local officials have said his death was an accident. but his parents, kendrick johnson's parents they have never believed that. after months of rallies and protests an announcement that the family of kendrick johnson hopes will lead to what they consider to be justice. >> at this time, however, i am of the opinion that a sufficient basis exists for my office to conduct a formal review of the facts and investigation surrounding the death of kendrick johnson. >> reporter: u.s. attorney michael moore supported by the fbi will soon head to valdosta, georgia, to conduct a federal investigation into the death of 17-year-old kendrick johnson. >> i will follow the facts whenever, whenever they lead. my objective is to discover the truth. >> hallelujah!

from kendrick's body were not collected as evidence. and how this blood stain got on his wall in the gym and why investigators never found whose blood it was. >> and you don't believe there was a thorough investigation by local authority, mr. johnson? >> no, i don't. >> reporter: in a statement for cnn, the attorney for the lowndes attorney's office writes in part, while sheriff prine has every confidence that the officer's investigation was handled with the necessary diligence, he welcomes a further review of the case. on wednesday, a judge ordered lowndes county sheriff's office to hand over details. >> just continue to fight on. >> you know, victor, the more i hear about this story, every time something new comes out the more stunning it is to hear the
deta details. >> the u.s. attorney says it's an ongoing review. he got the unredacted files and video back in june. he said for the last several months, he's been looking through it. at this point he says it goes from a review to a review and investigation, bringing in the fbi so this continues. >> some of that evidence that we saw in your story, the blood on the wall, the shoes will that be able to be tested, so much time has gone by? >> well, the shoes were never collected so that is never part of the evidence file. they may never find those orange and black shoes again. the blood, there were tests to determine if that is not kendrick. according to the file it is still there, it is tested. >> there have been investigation into the cover-up, also a review of the local authorities that handled their own investigation? >> yeah, it's a combination. in a statement u.s. attorney michael moore said this is a review and investigation. he'll review the case file, all the documents and work done to
this point. but this also an investigation that the fbi's going to go in and ask some questions and try to get answers. we're actually going to continue the conversation about the developments in the story. former special agent harold copus is coming in this morning. he has reviewed the case from the very beginning when we started to this story, followed this, i reached out to him and showed him the pictures and documents. we'll talk through how this will look like on ground because he's done it several times before. stay tuned. >> interesting to hear what he has to say. >> yeah. okay. still to come on "new day" -- >> red sox! >> whoo! >> boston strong takes center stage this morning as the city gets ready for the red sox victory parade. this time, it's taking on a whole new meaning. katy perry is coming to town. can we get tickets, please??? sure how many? thank you, thank you, thank you!

joe carter has more on this morning's "bleacher report." what can we expect from the celebration? everybody is excited that they won. there's a bittersweet aspect to this, isn't is there? >> i think more than anything, this kind of completes the full circle for the boston red sox. i think each individual fan will celebrate it in their own way. we're expecting today that the parade route is going to be similar as the 2004 -- if you guys remembered, that was the red sox first world series in almost 90 years. they're going to replicate that parade route, it's going to start in fenway work and boyleson street. around the museum and into the charles river. this will be a land and sea celebration. they use those duck tour boats. and they're actually asking fans this year not to throw baseballs in the charles river. saying control yourselves, no baseballs. in the parade in 2004 there was 3 million people. they're expecting the crowd to be similar this year.
the same size. obviously, we're expecting it to be just as big as well. i would expect, because it's saturday, families can bring their children, they're going to see a lot of people. as far as the red sox story, you know, you can go the hollywood version and say the city really rallied around them and used them as a point of resiliency. but if you look at it from the baseball team, last year they finished worst in the american league east. this team was ridiculed. the pitcher saying they cared more about eating chicken in the locker room than winning that irgames. they fired the manager. they had a new manager. they ditched a bunch of high salaries and brought in veterans. and the team went on a great run. the bombing had just happens as the team had just beaten the tampa bay race and leaving boston heading to cleveland for a road trip when they actually got word of the bombing on the plane. they came back the following weekend, and they played a series. really that was the first game. the first step forward for the
city of boston both from the sports perspective and the fans' perspective. that weekend was a poignant time in the red sox year. if you remember, they had all the tribute where is they hung up the boston strong sign. and the monster that they etched it to the outfield grass. and hung it in the dugout. david ortiz before the game started walked out to the middle of the dialed and grabbed the microphone and said this is our bleeping city. and jonny gomes had said from a slogan into a lifestyle, that whole boston strong thing. that's sort of where, you know, the fans have taken that now. is that this team really symbolizes resiliency, from worst to first. >> not just the boston fans, not just the red sox, but the entire country is going to be celebrating with the city today. because they need something to celebrate. >> i think it's fair to say even yankee fans are happy for boston. >> joe carter, thank you very much. we'll talk about this throughout the morning. and stay with us for the next few hours.
we're going to be covering the parade when it kicks off at 10:00 a.m. eastern live right here on cnn. you can also check out the parade on cnn.com/live. family members of the suspected gunman at l.a.x. are mystified about the deadly rampage. could text sent by the alleged gunman suggest a motive in the shooting? it is probably the worst fear i've ever been in my life. most terrifying. you always imagine what would you do. you hear about these horrible incidents. you kind of ask yourself, what would i do in a situation like that. the only thing i could do is keep my eyes down the hallway and make sure he wasn't coming down and try to keep calm. everybody was just going crazy. it was probably the most terrifying experience i've ever been through.

document checker when he was shot. the tsa said he would have turned 40 next week. number 2, the search for a missing school nurse is over. flis in florida said they have identifies a body found as 49-year-old kimberly lindsay. lindsay was reported missing after she failed to show up for work on monday. the case is now a homicide investigation. number 3, toronto police said they have video showing the mayor smoking crack cocaine. investigators say they actually have it. the video was obtained from a seize in a drug investigation. the mayor rob ford said he will not resign. >> number 4, charlie crist wants his old job back. on monday, he's expected to announce that he's running for governor of florida again but this time as a democrat. charlie crist was first elected as a republican but ran as an
independent. now listed as a democrat. 5, a drone strike has skilled a tall la bandleader in pakistan. police believe hakimullah mehsud played a role in the attack in 2009. three other people were also killed. the pakistani government issued a statement saying it strongly condemns the drone strike. more details on how the attack at l.a.x. unfolded. >> officials say the suspect was armrd with enough ammo to kill everyone in that terminal. >> we're told that the gunman was able to shoot his way through the security check point and make it all the way down the hallway, before he stopped right there near a burger king in the food can court. >> as word spread for the gunman on the loose people, of course, they started running for their lives. >> everyone on the floor! on the floor, now! now!
down. go, go, go! on the floor! go, hold on you guys. >> go, go! [ bleep ] this is crazy. >> police chased down that suspect, shot him multiple times in the chest. he's now in custody. this video shot exclusively by cnn affiliate kcal-kcbs appears to be a gurney and a suspect handcuffed. he's identified as 23-year-old paul ciancia, he lives in los angeles. one witness said he could hear the anger in ciancia's voice.
>> i stood up, still trying to watch to see where it was coming from. to see if i could see the shooter. i never did actually see him or hear him yelling while he was shooting. >> what was he yelling? >> i couldn't make it out. it was real angry. i couldn't make out what he was saying. but it was english, real angry voice. >> now, this is amazing, there's another with tness who came actually face to pace. leon saryan he told cnn how he was approached with a life or death question, listen. >> shots were coming from behind me. the tsa agent that was near me, urged me to grab my stuff and go. and saw that i didn't have my shoes on. you know, he grabbed the shoes and the two of us started running down the corridor towards the gate. meanwhile, more shots rang out. and this agent got hit.
i think it was a grazing wound. because he seemed to be okay. he had my shoes. i went and kind of cowered in a corner. and the shooter just calmly walking down the corridor, he saw me cowering there. he had his gun and he looked at me and he said tsa? i just shook my head. he kept going. >> we'll talk more about ciancia throughout the morning. but let's talk about security because since 9/11, airport security has been focused on passengers. and the plane and the cockpit. now one security expert tells cnn that the u.s. must also consider airport terminals as potential targets. >> this time, we may have a single shooter, which is a relatively limited event. but you mentioned instead of death, we would have had an attack in mumbai-style attack
with a group of trained terrorists, the result would have been very, very different. >> let's bring in cnn law enforcement analyst tom fuentes in washington. tom, is he right? should we now worry that a swarm of terrorists could barge into an airport and start shooting? >> hi, victor. essentially he's right, you have one terrorist on his way to departure area at the gate which means he's very close to being able to get to aircraft. and some of those aircraft may have had open doors with pilot it's in cockpit, preparing to take off. and if one person can get through tsa and get that far into the terminal, into the departure area, what would two people do, what would three people do especially with assault rifles. so his point if 12 trained people like the mumbai attack in november of 2008 had arrived in a shuttle, jumped out on the
sidewalk, ran into the airport, yes, really not going to encounter significant law enforcement. you know, we don't know when. in this case, this individual gets past tsa. and we're not sure how many armed police officers are in that terminal area. but they certainly were not in close proximity to the tsa location where they were shot and the one officer killed. >> let's talk about this because a law enforcement official tells cnn that armed police were removed from tsa checkpoints at l.a.x. earlier in the year to allow the officers to roam the terminal as long as they were no farther than two minutes away from that point. what's the reason for that why do that? >> well, you don't have to be a world class track star to cover 100 yards in 15 or 20 seconds. so a person with an assault rifle within two minutes can be a long way into that airport and into the departure area. so they have to ask themselves, and i'm sure everybody is going to be asking now, is that
adequate? and i think the facts yesterday demonstrate that certainly, from the tsa protection standpoint, not really. the tsa officers have not been armed historically, and the argument is that, well, first of all, there's one that's economic. that to train that many thousand of tsa magnetometer operators and document checkers would be extremely expensive and time consuming to do it. so the reliance from tsa has been that each airport has uniformed, armed police officers who are there to do that security measure if necessary. and in this case, there's no officer to be found at the time that the tsa officers are being gunned down at the check point. >> tom fuentes, cnn law enforcement analyst, we'll continue to have this conversation of security throughout the day as we learn more about see ciancia's
motives. and how you can get your hands on some of oprah's prize possessions. plus, they say nothing good happens after midnight. some people say that. including this. we'll tell you how this minivan ended up inside of a convenience store. no matter how busy your morning you can always do something better for yourself. and better is so easy with benefiber. fiber that's taste-free, grit-free and dissolves completely. so you can feel free to add it to anything. and feel better about doing it. better it with benefiber. so ally bank has a that won't trap me in a rate. that's correct. cause i'm really nervous about getting trapped. why's that? uh, mark? go get help! i have my reasons. look, you don't have to feel trapped

that's why a lot of halloweens were delayed and canceled. on friday, you can see again we have reports of hail damage and wind. and even 19 reports of tornadoes but that has all moved off the coast for the most part. that front's still lingering off the virginia and florida coast. but we'll see that move through today. behind it, though, much colder air coming in. not the coldest of the season, but certainly colder than we've seen. boston today, 64 tomorrow in the 40s. also detroit, marquette, only in the 30s today. so very cold couple days ahead. again, along the immediate east coast, today, mild, but not so tomorrow. of course, new york city marathon on sunday. 45 degrees and windy to boot. remember, last year, they canceled the marathon because of superstorm sandy. but if you're at the marathon or anywhere else, don't forget, fall back. tonight when you go to bed, clocks go back an hour, daylight saving time ends. and northwest, storms moving in.

you know when the shots were fired at l.a.x. airport people didn't have much choice but to run. >> it was only once police caught that lone shooter inside of terminal 3 that they could even think about what they've been through. here's some of their stories, listen. >> this incident apparently started with the shots fired. there are injuries. we've seen people evacuated. and we've seen people who have been injured. >> i heard a couple of popping noises, and i just turned to look. it just sounded like somebody banging on something. but there was a stampede of people coming my way and i realized that something was very wrong. at the beginning it was a complete panic. people were screaming. i saw children crying. you know, people here are still very shaky. >> all of a sudden, i heard a shot, but it didn't really register until everybody started, like, flying down the hallway. and they were just like jumping over chairs.
jumping over people. hiding. we were kind of trapped in the terminal. seemed like an eternity but finally the security came, opened up the door. we all piled out on the tarmac and just kind of hid underneath the plane. it was probably the worst experience i've ever been in my life. i mean most terrifying. >> they were telling to us run different directions. people ran into a bathroom to hide. then they pulled us out to the sidewalk, and said we were going to get bussed out. and pulled us back into the international terminal and told we were not allowed to leave. >> i was actually in a very bad place i was leaning against a wall when the shots were fired. i only found that out after we were evacuated and we were standing probably 12 feet from a high powered rifle, an ar-15 rifle on the ground with three clips nearby and a pair of black shoes and some people's shopping bags and other people's carry-on luggage strewn about.
but a policeman was taking pictures of that rifle. >> you can imagine. >> i really can't. i'm getting chills as i'm listening to that. >> we're going to continue to listen to some of those stories. we've learned this morning that the accused l.a.x. gunman sent text messages to his family that long before the shooting. >> after the break, we're going to explain why the messages had paul ciancia's relatives very concerned. this week, we're shining a spotlight on the top ten cnn heroes of 2013 as you vote for the one who inspires you the most. that's at cnnheroes.com. >> this week's honoree has found an innovative way to meet across the divide. ♪ >> i grew up here, actually started picking beans at age 6. but my father, i used to hear

on the floor now! on the floor! get out! >> get down. terror, terror, terror. >> on the floor! >> go! >> hold on, you guys. >> go, go! [ bleep ] this is crazy, dog. >> now, of course cnn is bringing you coverage of this story like no one else can. we've got crews on ground from los angeles. to new details about the accused gunman from his hometown. we're going to start this morning with the very latest developments from l.a.x. and dan simon. dan, good morning. bring us up to date. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, victor. at this point, we don't have a precise motive but it seems that the suspect here, paul ciancia seemed to have anti-federal
government feelings directed towards the tsa, according to some material found on the suspect. cnn has learned that he made reference to quote/unquote the new world order. what we know is that when he went into terminal 3, he pulled a rifle out of his bag, started opening fire. two tsa suspects were hit, including 39-year-old gerardo hernandez who was killed. he was the first tsa officer to die in the line of duty. following that shooting he then made his way into the airport into the departure area where he was confronted by police. i want you to listen to how one passenger described the mayhem. >> i ran out on to the tarmac and away from the terminal where the shooting was happening. and as i was running, the police came toward me, you know, the car is racing towards me. and they jumped out of the cars, pulled their guns, hands up, hands up, get down on the ground. from their perspective, i was the first guy running away from
this, running across the tarmac which is obviously not normal. so i laid down on the ground, basically, they just came over to me, they said, stay down, stay down. they didn't ask me any questions they put me in handcuffs and they basically said stay there. >> reporter: well, we know the suspect, ciancia was shot several times in the chest. but at this point, we do not have his condition. victor. >> now, of course, we've learned that this is the first tsa officer to be killed in the line of duty. two others injured. but it sounds like this could have been much worse, dan. >> reporter: definitely could have been. here you have somebody who is, you know, hell-bent on creating mayhem and shooting people. obviously, he seemeded ed ted anger towards the tsa. he could have shot other tsa officers had he confronted them. i want you to listen to how the mayor put it when he described more ammunition clips were found here at the airport.
>> there were additional rounds that this gunman had. and the fact that these officers were able to neutralize the threat as they did, they were more than 100 more rounds that could have literally killed everybody in that terminal today. were it not for their actions, there could have been a lot more damage. >> reporter: as for terminal 3, it remains closed. not clear when it will reopen. the airport apparently making plans, though, to reopen the parking structure. the rest of the airport, meanwhile, is open. this is important, as for people who left belongings and had luggage in terminal 3. the airport is saying those folks can come to the airport and start checking those belongings beginning at 7:00 a.m. local time. victor. >> all right, dan simon, we saw the huge crowds outside yesterday. thank you for that from l.a.x. there is new video that appears to show the suspect on a gurney being taken away at l.a.x. it was shot conclusively from
the affiliate kcal. the wounded man is thought to be ciancia. cnn hasn't been able to independently confirm this. you can see what appear to be his wrists handcuffed to the gurney. he was shot several times in the chest. as of last night, he was treated at a local hospital. paul ciancia attended a catholic high school in wilmington, delaware. he lived across the river in pennsville, new jersey. what are people in pennsville telling you about ciancia? >> reporter: allison, they're basically saying this would make a whole lot more sense if this were a mistake that it turned out to be the wrong guy. i talked to a guy last night he never heard of any radical ideas about ciancia. the family is telling police that they did not know that he owned a rifle. they say they had no indication
that he had any mental health issues. and they say he was just back here for a wedding this summer and it looked like nothing was wrong. the first indication the family got was a text message on friday morning, where paul ciancia texted his family and said some pretty alarming things. here's the chief of police. >> basically, the text message was just a message to the little brother. and the way it was written, they had some concern about it, that's when they brought it to our attention. >> reporter: so the little brother told his dad, look at this text message. something is wrong here. the dad immediately called the local police here. the local police got on the phone with the lapd and said please do a well-being check. the lapd then went to his apartment, found his roommate, but he wasn't home at the time. the roommate said, look, we saw him yesterday, he seemed fine. and all of that taking place, again, friday morning, friday, early afternoon eastern time. as paul ciancia was already at
l.a.x. alison. >> chris, how well-known is this family to law enforcement there in new jersey? >> reporter: well very known, but in a good way. the dad, paul ciancia is actually an associate member of a fraternal order of police. that's how he knew immediately when he saw this text message, get on the phone, call the local police right away. he owns a local body repair shop. look, this isn't the kind of neighborhood that breeds familiarity here. the homes are well apart. it's wooded. they're set well back from the street. so the neighbors aren't all that close. but the people who do know the dad say this was a good family. that the son went to a catholic school just over the bridge in delaware. people here, very, very shocked by hearing this name associated with this alleged crime, alison. >> chris lawrence, thank you.
>> and our teams are reaching out to the sources to try to learn more about his motive possibly and these anti-government sentiments found on document it's. imagine, if you fly off in chaos and confusion when you hear that pop, pop for the first time, and realize they're shooting at the airport. that's how witness described the scene at the rampage. up next, we're going to take you to one of the busiest airports in the world where people are wondering is airport security tight enough? i heard a couple of popping noises and just turned to look. it just sounded like somebody was banging on something. there was a stampede of people coming why may. and i realized that something was very wrong.

continue the work of trying to close down that scene. we know that planes are taking off and landing in other terminals there. this, of course, is the scene of yesterday's rampage in which authorities say paul anthony ciancia shot three people and shot himself. and he's still in the hospital, and so is two tsa officers. the first died. shooting started about 9:20 a.m. one man at l.a.x. traveling from milwaukee said he came face-to-face with the shooter. >> this is amazing. listen to this, leon saryan told anderson cooper how the shooter actually approached him with a life or death question. >> shots were coming from behind me. and the tsa agent that was near knee, urged me to, you know, to grab myself and stuff and go. saw that i didn't have my shoes on. you know, he grabbed the shoes and the two of us started running down the corridor
towards the gate. meanwhile, more shots rang out. and this agent got hit. i think it was a grazing wound because he seemed to be okay. he had my shoes. i went and kind of cowered in a corner. and the shooter just calmly walking down the corridor, he saw me cowering there. he had his gun. he looked at me and he said, tsa? i just shook my head. he kept going. >> and at that time, he had no idea that that was the life or death question. now, this happened, of course, at los angeles international airport, but it had ripple effects on travelers across the country. more than 1500 flights were affected as a result of yesterday's deadly shooting. cnn's nick valencia is at the world's busiest airport. atlanta's hartsfield-jackson. tell us, nick, what effect does yesterday's shooting have on travel this morning?
>> reporter: good morning, victor, as you mentioned, what happened yesterday at los angeles international airport certainly had an impact on airports throughout the united states. here at atlanta's airport, we hear they've increased the visibility of plane clothes officers. they do believe what they say happened yesterday was an isolated incident. as far as what's going on inside. seems to be things are back to normal. the stoppage at l.a.x. ripple through flight boards across the nation with a major impact on people's travel plans. >> my flight was mass civil delayed coming out of phoenix. they're rerouting me on another flight. i'll get there much later than expected. >> unfortunate, what can you do. >> to come here and look on the board and see not only is the flight delayed but really things are quite hectic in l.a. >> it takes you back to like previous events that have happened over the years. and you just hope everybody's okay when you land. >> reporter: for others at
airports some anxious moments as they waited to hear from family members traveling through los angeles. >> got a message from my father-in-law who is on the plane at the time saying we're on the plane but we can't go. and they didn't really know what was going on. >> reporter: and while canceled or rebooked flights caused headaches for a lost people, some late travelers in san francisco say they're lucky to have missed their scheduled flights, including this mother who dropped off their kids. >> if they had made their flight to visit their dad in l.a. today they would have been in the midst of what was going on there in terminal 3. and. >> reporter: there are no major delays, victor this morning at atlanta's airport. it took about ten minutes to get through security lines. tsa telling us that's less time than it normally takes. victor. >> we'll see if there's any changes in security there. nick valencia, thank you very much. still to come on "new day," here's something good.

enough ammo to kill everyone in the terminal. >> and we're told the gunman was able to shoot his way through the security checkpoint. make it all the way down the hallway before he was stopped right there close to a burger king and the food court. >> as word spread to the gunman on the loose, people ran for their lives. >> everyone on the floor! on the floor! on the floor! go! >> terror, terror, terror. >> go, go, go! on the floor. >> go! >> come on you guys. >> go, go! [ bleep ] this is crazy. >> well, police then chased down the suspect. they shot him several times in the chest. he is alive. he's in police custody.
this video was shot exclusively by cnn affiliate kcal-kcbs. it shows what appears to be the suspect handcuffed to a gurney. the fbi has identified the shooter was 23-year-old paul anthony ciancia. he lives in l.a. but from new jersey. authorities say they found information on him expressing anti-government sentiments and anger targeted towards the tsa. one witness said he could hear the anger in ciancia's voice. >> i stood up still trying to watch, see where it was coming from. see if i could see the shooter. i never did actually see him. i could hear him yelling while he was shooting. >> reporter: what was he yelling? >> i couldn't make it out he was angry. it was english. you know, it was just real angry voice. >> so this is paul ciancia's family home. it's in pennsville, new jersey. authorities say that he recently sent texts to his brother and
his father. and those texts concerned them so they called police. they're described as angry rambling messages, venting about the government. his life in los angeles said general unhappiness. despite all of that, people who know paul ciancia and his family say yesterday's shooting has surprised them. >> i haven't had any personal reactions from him. but what i've seen and heard he was a normal person. everyday guy. you know, friendly. you would never -- like, even right now, i'm still trying to process did this really happen? did they get the wrong guy? because if at the told me they got the wrong guy it would make a lot more sense to me. >> and the confused gunman may have been a conspiracy theorist. officials said he had materials referencing the world world order. barbara starr is live in washington. let me ask you this, do you know anything at this point what officials are saying about this? >> well, some information is emerging joursz reporter evan
perez has spoken to federal law enforcement officials who says materials found on the suspect did include a rant that appeared to reference that new world order. as well as anti-tsa, anti-government claims. it's not clear what really gave rise to these references. federal investigators have found no known links in the suspect's background to explain them. for people not familiar, new world order is generally accepted to be a conspiracy theory where people believe that there are elites out there forming some sort of special authoritarian government. this is the generally accepted view of what new world order means. but investigators, alison still looking into all of this. >> barbara, cnn has learned that earlier this year, armed police officers were actual hi removed from tsa checkpoints at l.a.x. for the first time since 9/11. what do we know about this decision? >> reporter: well, dan simon out
in california our journalist has been looking into this and he has been told that indeed those police officers were removed from l.a.x. earlier this year. it seems the officers had been stationed there following 9/11, but a decision had been made to allow the officers to roam the terminal as long as they were never more than two minutes away from a checkpoint. so certainly, investigators are going to be looking at this, also did the system work properly. certainly there was a massive law enforcement response very quickly. >> barbara starr, thank you. another big story that's developing this week, was it a tragic accident or something more sinister? >> the fbi has been called in to search for answers in the mysterious death of a georgia teenager. but after ten months is there any evidence left to find? we're going to ask a former fbi agent just that. s pro. maestro of project management. baron of the build-out. you need a permit... to be this awesome.

student into that gym. then inside the gym on the day he died, but it does not show his death. here's more background on how he got here. >> reporter: after months of rallies and protests, an announcement that the family of kendrick johnson hopes will lead to what they consider to be justice. >> at this time, however, i am of the opinion that a sufficient basis exists for my office to conduct a formal review of the facts and investigation surrounding the death of kendrick johnson. >> reporter: u.s. attorney michael moore supported by the fbi will soon head to valdosta, georgia to conduct a federal investigation into the death of 17-year-old kendrick johnson. >> i will follow the facts whenever, wherever they lead. my objective it discover the truth. >> hallelujah! praise you jesus. >> reporter: kendrick's grandmother watched the announcement on a portable tv on the street corner where the family continues its eight-month
sit-in demanding answers. >> i'm so happy and i know we trusted the lord and we just have been down here rallying for 32 weeks for nothing. >> reporter: the johnson family never believed the local sheriff's explanation that kendrick suffocated after squeezing his 19-inch shoulders into the 14 1/2-center of a rolled gym mat to reach for a school in the middle of a school day. >> his parents have always maintained that their son was killed. and the only question we want to know is why they are covering up for whoever killed their son. >> i believe indeed that he was murdered. >> do you have any idea who may have murdered him? >> no, i don't. that's what we want to get on to the truth. >> reporter: cnn has been reporting on this case for months. uncovering details of the sheriff's investigation like why these shoes found yards from kent drik's body were not collected as evidence. and how this blood stain got on this wall on the gym and why
investigators never found whose blood it was. >> and you don't believe there was a thorough investigation by local authorities, mr. johnson? >> no, i don't. >> reporter: in a statement to cnn, the attorney for the lowndes county sheriff department writes in part while sheriff prine has every confidence that his officers' investigation was handled with the necessary diligence to make sure all leads were examined and exhausted he welcomes the review of the case. or wednesday, a judge ordered lowndes county sheriff office to hand over the file. including never before scene video. >> just continue to fight on and justice for k.j. >> we know the fbi's going into valdosta. joining me to talk about this, former fbi special agent harold copus. let's start with what this investigation will look like. good to have you on this story. we've been talking about this for months. when fbi agents go in, what are
they doing? >> basically, when they go back, it's like a cold case. they have to go back, reconstruct the case from beginning to end. and that means reinterview, looking at the evidence. brand-new case. >> they're not relying on evidence compiled, but they're starting fresh? >> they're starting fresh. they will review the file but they're starting fresh. >> we've had conversations about the agents themselves. your concern about is a conflict of interest. talk about that. >> what happens when you're in the small office such as valdosta, the agents have to be close to local law enforcement so much so that they say hey there's a conflict. you have to lieliminate that. >> so out of d.c. or far field office? >> correct. >> now, there are a lot of people passionate about this story who followed it online through social media, through our reporting. they should expect what, over the next few months?
how long is this going to take? >> you never know. but i would tell you, practically speaking, six to eight months, before you could say this case will be wrapped up when the bureau gets involved. >> the u.s. attorney said he's not making any more statements. we're clearly not hearing from the fbi so this is going underground for a while. >> totally. >> they're going into this, you say, as a cold case, right? but there's so much that isn't available anymore. those orange and black shoes. what's your concern about the evidence that will be available? >> that's the biggest compromise now to this case. you and i have talked everything times. we know there's evidence out there that no longer exists. that hampers the case. almost could derail the case, quite frankly. if you were trying to make a criminal indictment. >> so one other thing when we talk about evidence, we've uncovered that kendrick's organs are missing. there was the initial autopsy from the state. the second autopsy from the family's pathologist.
should we expect a third autopsy from the fbi lab? >> if i were leading that case, that's one of the first things i'd have to say. i've got two, one that i questioned. then the family one. let's bring in the fbi. and let's have the lab men do their own work. >> so kendrick could be exhumed for a second time? >> could be. >> harold copus. we'll continue the investigation. giving us a look inside what the investigation for the death will turn out to be. alison, back to you. >> thanks, victor. we are learning more about the shooting at los angeles international airport. but a shooting like that could happen at any airport. after the break, a security expert lays out a plan of action for you in case you ever get caught at a shooting in an airport. ♪ [ male announcer ] no success is overnight.

guns at airports but tsa officers don't. a law enforcement source tells cnn armed police officers were stationed at tsa checkpoints at l.a.x. earlier in the the year, but now they roam the terminals. so let's talk to ken robinson joining us on skype from washington. he say terrorist national security analyst. and a former military intelligence officer. let me start with this question, ken. you know, do you think it was a big mistake to move these armed and just have them roam? >> i think it's a mistake not to maintain someone who as a weapon and who is armed at that checkpoint who can always be qualified in that weapon. otherwise, it's not a checkpoint. it's simply a pass through and or a speed bump. you must be someone prepared to deal with this type of an incident on a post standing by. >> so what changes do you think would be put into place? do you think that the change would be put into place to have
police officers nearby again? and would that even help? >> i think it would. there are so many things wrong with how we do security in the united states. it has to do with the perceptions of how much will the civilian flying public tolerate. and look at it as an inconvenience. if you look at other countries who do this very well and have no security problems, it's because their population supports them and there's a cultural contract between the government and that population that says things are done for our safety and therefore we support them. there's no concentric circles of security. >> are you referring to israel? >> i am referring to israel and other nations who take a report of zpoer -- they draw the line at zero in terms of security. they establishes concentric circles of security. it's unimaginable for someone to make it that far in an israeli
airport. i've travelled through there many times and it just wouldn't happen. and is it wouldn't happen because their professionals are organized differencely. they're on alert. they're physically looking at every passenger that's coming to them. there are a lot of words that are used like profiling, but it's been made into a politically unacceptable word in our dialogue. one of the things that israelis do is profile human behavior. and they do that by interviewing every passenger. they require people to show up up front three hours early. they search their bags, talk to them, look at them. >> i have to ask you, ken, what if you're caught or someone is caught in a situation like what happened at l.a.x. at a shooting, what do you do when you're inside the airport? >> when you go to the airport, maintain your situational
awareness. don't be shoktd. so stay alert. once the incident occurs, the first thing you want to do is separate yourself from the incident. you want to look for what is the safest route away from wherever the shooting is occurring. sometimes that safest route could be in a direction that you wouldn't think normally possible. you must be decisive and you must act. you separate yourself from your area and your lag garage. most people are holding on to their luggage and that slows things down. your luggage is safe. it's now a crime scene. and the next thing you should do is trust your instincts and they're going to kick in faster than you can think about it. remember, most people are traveling potentially with children. and so whatever decision you're making has to go for a whole group of people that you have to
then corral. you must be decisive and articulate and get everyone around you to move. many people are freeze in place and that's the kiss of death. some of these exits are marked -- >> i'm sorry. we've run out of time. but thank you very much, ken robinson. and we're going to be right back. especially today, as people are looking for more low, and no calorie options. that's why on vending machines, we're making it easy for people to know how many calories are in their favorite beverages, before they choose. and we're offering more low calorie options, including over 70 in our innovative coca-cola free-style dispensers. working with our beverage industry and restaurant partners, we're helping provide choices that make sense for everyone. because when people come together, good things happen. and better is so easy withrning you cabenefiber.o something better for yourself.

and that's not just because this is boston. but because in the wake of the horrific boston marathon bombings that literally rip the city apart, it was the red sox who gave something to rally around and gather and cheer and hug. this season, fenway wasn't just a ballpark, this was a grassy green runway for the wounded to strut. some on their prosthetic legs. i spoke to red sox ace jon lester and he ex-splapd just how the survivors had becomes the team's inspiration. >> i think it kind of -- it motivates you a little bit as far as the days that you're kind of struggling. i know you have days where you go out and pitch and you feel lethargic or whatever. it's the grind of the season. and i think when you're walking in from the bullpen and those guys are coming buy, it's like, okay, it doesn't matter.
i've got to find a way. these guys are in wheelchairs right now. they've lived half their live walking, and all the sudden in one day, in one second, they're in a wheelchair. and that goes back to the -- it doesn't matter how i feel. i need to go out and compete for those guys. >> the words boston strong were echoed a the fenway field for a reason. it's the heart and center of how this community chose to define itself in the wake of the bombings. they're not victims, they're survivors. they all felt like they won the series together and they're celebrating now, big time. >> good morning. i'm alison kosik. >> i'm victor blackwell. welcome to your weekend. it's 8:00 here on the east coast. >> and it won't be easy for
workers at los angeles international airport to return to work this morning. >> they're going to ro rt to an airport where one terminal is a crime screen. here is the latest. councilors will be on sight or anyone who just needs to talk after yesterday's shootings. a lot of passengers still waiting on word of when they can collect their luggage. the suspected gunman was 23-year-old paul ciancia. cnn is bringing you coverage of this story like no one else can with crews on the ground from los angeles to new details about the accused gunman from his hometown. >> let's go ahead and begin this morning from the latest developments from l.a.x. and dan simon, dan tell us how all this went down? >> hi, alison. it seems this is someone who had
extreme hatred towards the tsa. and he had writings on them that said, quote/unquote, the new world order. as for terminal 3, it remains closed. >> reporter: this has got to be a major, major incident. >> reporter: los angeles international airport. 9:21 a.m. local time. paul anthony ciancia enters terminal 3, pulls a rifle from a bag and proceeded to fire. >> he proceeded up to where the screeners are and continued shooting and went passed the shooters back into the airport itself. >> reporter: at the security checkpoint, tsa officers who are not armed are shot. one, 39-year-old ger regard doe hernandez is killed. he is the first to die in the line of duty since the agency was established in 2001. authorities say ciancia managed
to make it all the way down this hallway. they say he is stopped by police in the food court area. >> it was complete panic. people were screaming. children crying. >> pure and utter hey ham. people are fingertiping over each other on the floor. bags everywhere. >> everybody started like flying down the hallway and they were just jumping over chairs and people. hiding -- we were kind of trapped at the end of the terminal. >> reporter: trapped with nowhere else to escape. some passengers run onto the airport tarmac. others use anything they can to protect themselves. >> the first shot just caught us off gored. second shots went in, and then i just gragd luggage and started making walls and walls out of luggages. i could see the guy walking towards the escalator. >> half making it hundreds of feet into the terminal, the
gunman is shot by police multiple times in the chest and lives. though the motive is still unclear, they say investigators found information on the suspect expressing anti-government sentiment and apger at the tsa specifically. and what is clear, he was intent on causing much more destruction. >> there were more than 100 more rounds that could have literally killed everybody in that terminal. >> reporter: airport police fortunately able to take down the suspect. but cnn has learned that airport police were actually removed from tsa check points earlier this year. they had been there since 9/11. and it certainly raises questions. because maybe they could have engaged the suspect earlier and had a different out come. >> paul ciancia attended an all
boys catholic high school and he lived in pennsville, new jersey. that is where cnn's chris lawrence is this morning. what are people in pennsville telling you about ciancia? >> reporter: alison, they're basically saying it would make a whole lot more sense if it were someone else. this is the wrong man. friends are telling us that they never had any indication about any sort of ties to any sort of radical thoughts or groups. the family is telling police that they had no indication he had any mental health issues. that they did not know that he owned a rifle. and they say he was back here at home just this summer for a wedding and nothing seemed to be the problem. the only indication or the first indication that they say they got was a text message on friday morning from paul ciancia to his little brother here at home. that text message was alarming. it indicated that paul ciancia might try to harm himself.
at that point, the brother told the dad, look, something is wrong. look at this text message. the daddy called the local police and then called the lapd to try to check out what was happening with paul ciancia. all of that time not connecting it to what was going on simultaneously already at l.a.x. >> to be honest with you, i don't think that any -- we were able to connect any of this together. you know, small town like pennsville, we followed it up. and our procedure is if someone is kwernd about a family member, we call that local police department and do a well-being check. it came back and he wasn't home. >> reporter: basically at that points by the time the lapd had got to the apartment, his roommates were home but he was not. the roommate said they had saw him the night before and he seemed fine at that point. he was already at the airport at that point. >> any idea if the family had any links to law enforcement?
i ask this because there's a question of how he got ahold of the weapon. >> the dad is well-known in the community. local business owner. also an associate member of the fra temperature order of police. longstanding relationship with the police chief. interesting, though, i talked to someone who new paul ciancia here. and he said i didn't know him that well. and i asked him, you know, who are his friends that he sort of kept in contact with. he lived there his whole life. he just left and moved out west about a year and a half ago. and he told me, i don't know anyone who he was really close to, a close friend that he was still in contact with. so it doesn't appear that he had really deep fingertips or social ties here in the community that he grew up in. >> thank you. >> of course the shooting is shining a light on airport security again. and police say ciancia was armed with an saumt rifle when he
entered l.a.x. and just starting shooting. some people are asking whether the security in airports needs to be even tighter. we're at atlanta's hartsfield-jackson. what is security like this morning at that airport? >> reporter: i just want to point out yesterday we were here hours after the shooting at l.a.x. and we saw airport security dropping off people. and today this morning, it doesn't seem to be that way. we were inside a little while ago. security lines are moving quickly. in fact it's taking less time to get through the checkpoints today, this morning, than it usually does. though airport officials tell us that they have increased security in plain clothed officers. and i was talking to passenger who were getting ready to board
flights. some had no idea what happened yesterday, believe it or not, while others say they were a little nechbous. >> i'm praying for the people over at l.a.x. it was tragic what happened. but i think that as you can see, everybody else is going to get on their flight as well. hopefully nothing happens and hopefully the nation will be able to come together on this. >> reporter: and so far no major delays here this morning. but it's definitely on the minds of what happened yesterday, definitely on the mines of some people traveling out today. >> nick, you and i fly in and out of hartsfield-jackson several times a week. describe, if you would, everything that there is before you get to a security checkpoint and if there's anything that's changing from officials there. >> reporter: i mean there might be some long-term changes, of course. and that would come with time. but anything that would happen here in hours or days after the
shooting might be perceived as a knee-jerk reaction. i was just talking to a man now, as you get passed tsa, there's atlanta police officers that are sort of overlooking. i'm from los angeles, very -- two very different airports here and the processes of going through screening. it's a standard screening that you get from tsa, but not the same barricades that you see here in atlanta as you would see in los angeles. >> nick, thank you. >> and shifting gears. it's been a rough six months for boston, but the red sox and team hoping to heal the city. we're live with a preview of the big day. >> reporter: crowds are already arriving by the thousands to celebrate the red sox victory.

gathering by the thousands in the same spot where they stood six months ago to watch the boston marathon. they will be out here plodding and paying trikt to the red sox world series champs. but we'll told that they will stop along the parade route and pay tribute to the survivors of the bombings. here is what one of those survivors is saying this morning. >> it felt like we were a city that had such a tragedy happen and we were able to be resilient and heal over the course of the baseball season. >> reporter: today's parade taking on special meaning. but this is a town that loves baseball and this is a town that loves the red sox. these parades have always drawn huge crowds. back in 2004, it's estimated that more than 3 million people
lined the parade route. and back in 2004, about 1 million people. >> what extra measures are you seeing at this point with security? >> reporter: well, this is the largest public gathering since the marathon and this pa rasds follows part of the marathon route. so security is top of mind this morning. we're seeing uniformed police officers all over the city and they've added extra uniformed and non-uniformed officers. we are also told that anyone who brings a backpack out here to the parade could have it randomly searched. security is the most important matter this morning. >> thanks for that. stay with us throughout the morning. we'll be covering the parade live when it kicks off in less than two hours. you can check out the parade on cnn.com/live. and we have a big get this
morning. we've got boston famed red sox announcer who is on the phone with us right now. i first want to ask you about the energy there and the feeling. this is no ordinary parade for a team that just brought home the pennant. >> people are so fired up because the red sox went from worst to first. they lost 93 games last year and won 118 this year. and it was a big surprise and we're very excited. >> give us an idea of the level of responsibility that the players took on. and we are a moment when david ortiz went out and said this is our city after the bombings. talk about what changed for the players. >> that night after the marathon bombings, we went to cleveland and every player went out to dinner together, which doesn't happen very often in bangle. it sort of brought them tight
together. and they really understood the responsibility. but they really understood what was -- what they could do to help. they went in groups of five to visit the victims in the hospitals. and i think it really helped unify this team. >> this is alison kosik here as well with viblgter. tell me about the parade. who could we see? >> all the players will be on duck boats, which, of course, is a boston tradition. and they'll go by the bombing site. after that they go into the charlds river and have some fun there. >> any baseballs in the river? >> there may be. there may be people throwing baseballs. >> joe, after that long drought, many called it the curse, there was the '04 win, there was the '07 written, but thoefs on the road.
this is the first world series since 1918. what does it mean? put it in perspective for us at fenway park, since 1918? >> the first two were tremendous. so i don't think it was -- it was different, the one at home, because the fans and -- the fans are very well behaved. people stay in their seats for an hour and a half and two hours after the game was amazing. >> just an amazing comeback from last year? >> yeah, it was night and day from 93 losses to 108 wins. really sensational. so many people involved, the players, general manager, the manager, they all did such a wonderful job. >> what's the role of this team in the city? we all know people from boston, but especially now as the healing continues just a few months after the bombing?
what is their new role? >> i think the red sox has always been number one, so i don't know if the role has changed. but i think the players are more civically aware of what's going on and what their responsibility has been. they really got -- took this thing to heart. and i think this was part of the thing that drove them. and they really were the instigators of boston strong. >> did you happen to cover the marathon, the bombing? were you there? >> no, we were out in the box getting ready to go to cleveland about 45 minutes after the game ended. >> but you certainly felt the effects, didn't you? >> yes, we did. in fact my family was heading over there and i called to stop them because they had gone to the game. which, of course, is always a big sell-out. and it was certainly a very, very scary time. and many times our players wives
run in the marathon. there were none this year. but it happened about 50 minutes after the game ended. >> and give us an idea of the energy and the feeling. we talked about today. but that night when it was clear and everybody watched it on television, the boston red sox, world series champions. take us in fenway park that night. >> it was a 6-1 game. so after we ended the curse in '84 after 86 years without a win, i think people expected us to win. there was great anticipation. but a lot of joyous people, i think. and they sell bragted in the right way. you know, they still are sort of pinching themselves that this happened because of the worst to first. >> joe castiklioni, thank you
for talking with us. we celebrate with the city of boston and the team. >> thank you so much. >> thank you for speaking with us. and we'll continue or coverage throughout the morning with the big celebration in often. and the parade starts at 10:00. you can watch it on the air and online. >> but first it's been a decade since an american male won a tennis grand slam event. but johni isner would like to break that streak. >> i think you can too. >> oh. >> well, john's great asset is his height. that height gives him the opportunity to get angles the

questions about the family about the initial sheriff's department investigation. >> and back to our lied story this morning. cnn has learned new information about the suspected l.a.x. shooter. it may be a conspiracy theorist. he had materials referencing the new world order. >> cnn's barbara starr is live in washington. what are officials saying about this angle? >> so far what -- the federal law enforcement official is telling cnn that materials found on the shooting suspect included a rant that appeared to reference the new world order as well as anti-tsa, anti-government claims. not clear what gave rise to these references of the federal investigators say so far they've found no links to known groups or anything in the suspect's background to explain any of this. when people talk about the new world order it generally is a
conspiracy belief that there are people forming a government. this is the general theory of what the are new world order is. investigators looking into all of this. >> they learned earlier this year that armed police officers were removed from tsa checkpointed at l.a.x. for the first time since 9/11. do we know what's more about behind that decision? >> we don't at this point. our cnn's dan simon is reporting that these officers were remod from tsa checkpoints at l.a.x. earlier this year. the decision was made that they could now roam the terminal and move around with the provision that they were never more than two minutes away from a checkpoint. and what we do know is there was a massive law enforcement response when this tragedy unfolded. not clear what the new procedure, why it was really put into place. >> reportedly president obama
spoke with the mayor of los angeles and the head of tsa. any details of that conversation? >> reporter: well, look. the president of course expressing his condolences to the tsa workers to the family of the fallen officer. but also, make no mistake, this is now a very kit cal law enforcement investigation for the fbi. whatever the motivation, whatever the circumstances, security analysts are pointing out that this is the closest an armed gunman has really gotten to a cockpit since 9/11. that may not have been the person's motivation in this incident, but it does mean that they really need to take a hard look at security and see if there are any changes they're going to want to make. >> barbara starr in washington. thank you very much for that. >> miscues and stumps. president obama's second term seems to have been filled with them. our panel is going to weigh in

"the new york times" quotes a new book, double down, saying the obama aides looked to replacing joe biden on the 2012 ticket with hillary clinton. my question is how big of a deal
is that and would it have mattered in the 2012 election? let's start with maria. >> no. because obama actually won the 2012 election. so that, i think, was the point of even having considered if that was actually the case, putting hillary clint ton on the ticket. >> aside from his winning, what would that have meant for her potential 2016 run? >> i think it would have meant a tremendous amount. it would have solidly established her as a the heir apparent. one complaint from the obama camp seems to have been drawing on the book "double down" that abide was promoting himself a bit too much. so that apprehension about biden, might have meant that the obama folks said, hey let's have clinton come in there. but the clinton camp was say, do
we really want to be associated with the obama second term. >> go ahead maria. >> i was going to say, i think it's pretty clear that she is still the heir apparent. if you look at everybody that's talking about her potential run. that has not changed. >> let me ask you this and then we'll switch to obama care. the president's team is bringing all the techies from google to help fix the healthcare.gov. they're promising the site is going to work by the end of the month. is this really the defining moment of the president -- of president obama's years in office? >> i think this certainly is president obama's main domestic policy goal. i think he's going to be remembered for it. and think that there are a lot of open questions about how well this is going to work. it was difficult to get this passed and i think it's very dear to the president's heart and that of many of his allies
as well. so it's crucial that this work well for the president's legacy to be soundly established. >> maria? >> i think he's absolutely right. this is clearly his legislative, his big accomplishment, quote/unquote, and that's why they're, working so hard to make sure that the website gets up and running. i think we need to taking long view here. this is a website glitch right now. and as long as it gets fixed, this is going to be a dim memory by next year. and what people are going to be focused on are all of the benefits that the people are already receiving and the 30 million americans who couldn't get health care before and who can now get it and get if at decent prices. >> one of the things that people believe the obama folks did well was run a website. we remember the one from 2008 and 2012.
isn't this about more than just the technical element. for this plan to work, you've got to get young healthy people into the program. we'll continue this conversation. but we're out of time. but you got to get it in. >> i think you're right and much deeper than a website problem. there are deep structural questions about whether this plan is going to work. >> we'll see. >> thanks to both of you. >> never enough time for these conversations. >> still to come on "new day," a lone gunman puts an entire airport on lockdown. and we'll hear from witnesses describing the terror and confusion at l.a.x. ♪ ♪ ♪

>> i went and kind of cowered in a corner. and the shooter was just calmly walking down the corridor. he saw me cowering there. he had his gun. he looked at me and he said, tsa? and i just shook my head. and he kept going. >> that's really chilling, isn't it. when the people heard the gunshots, all they could do is run. >> it was only after police caught a lone shooter inside terminal 3 that those people could stop and take a breath and really think about what they had been through. here are some of their stories. >> this incident apparently started with the shots fired. there are injuries. we've seen people evacuated and
seen people injured. >> reporter: i heard a couple of popping noises and just turned to look. it sounded like somebody banging on something. there was a stampede of people coming my way and i realized something was very wrong. at the beginning, it was complete panic. people screaming, children crying. you know, i mean people here are still very shaky. >> all of a sudden i heard a shot. but it didn't register until everybody started flying down the hallway and jumping over chairs and people. hiding in -- we were kind of trapped at the end of the terminal. seemed like an eternity. but finally the security came and opened up the door and we all piled out onto tarmac. and just hid underneath the plane. this is probably the worst experience i've ever been in in my life. >> they were telling us to run different directions. people ran into a bathroom to hide. they pulled us out to the side walk and said we were going to get bussed out.
but then they pulled us into the international terminal and been told we were not allowed to leave. >> i was in a bad place. i was leaning against the wall right outside where the shots were fired. i found that out after we were evacuated. and we were standing probably 12 feet from a hoye-powered rifle. an ar-15 rifle on the ground. three chips. and other people's carry-on lull gak strewn about. >> and a little more than six months ago, we were listening to accounts after a tragedy from folks in boston. but this morning, we're going back to boston but for a celebration. people are already packing the streets there for a day to remember. it is the red sox victory parade. we've got it all covered. but this season the team's world

baseball. and now the sox are the epitome of what it means to be boston strong. [ chanting ] >> reporter: national champions. the boston red sox and national treasures, the marathon bombing survivors. after more than six months, they are celebrating victories together. >> it felt like, you think, we were a city that had such a tragedy happen and we were able to kind of be resilient and -- and heal over the course of the baseball season coincidentally. >> reporter: back in april, the sox were coming off a last-place finish in their division last year. ab the city of boston had just taken a devastating hit. after a pair of explosions near the marathon finish line, this woman lost part of her leg.
she had just left the game at fenway. >> i practiced in physical therapy. >> reporter: while she was still using a wheelchair to get around, she accepted an offer to go back to the ballpark. >> when i threw out the first pitch, that was a big deal for me. >> and now you can say you pitched for the world series champs. >> reporter: over and over again, the team invited other survivors home. and james taylor was there during the second winning of the world series game. >> they felt supportive of us and at least i felt supportive of them in return. >> reporter: abbott had come a long way. with her new prosthetic leg, she could now walk on to the field. as for the sox, after 93 losses last year, they were now plague for the world series championship. >> it kind of felt we were moving along with the red sox every step of the way as they
were continuing to improve their season as well. and that whole boston strong mantra kind of stuck. >> reporter: in six games, boston's team proved its strength winning the series. >> the boston, the marathon, all that stuff is bigger than us. >> reporter: in six months, abbott show the world how strong she is. >> to know that only six months have gone by and i'm pretty much totally independent and have a few different legs that i can uls. i started running again. i think for me that's an important success to celebrate. >> good morning. i'm alison kosik. >> and i'm victor blackwell. we've got our eye on the big celebration in boston. this is "new day" saturday. but also, los angeles international airport, it is
open for business today. but it's going to be difficult. especially difficult day for both the workers and the travelers. you're looking live at l.a.x. now on the west coast. it is 6:00 a.m. there. yesterday's shooting affected more than 176,000 travelers and l.a.x. will have to copy with flights while terminal 3 remains shut down. >> and cnn's dan siem mon joins me from los angeles right now. any identify at this point when terminal three is going to re-open? >> reporter: well, good morning. just had some passenger ask me that exact question as they were walking the sidewalk here. and to be honest, we don't know when that terminal will re-open. at one point we were told that passengers would be able to go in this morning and retrieve some of the belongs that have been left behind. but that apparently has been put on hold as the fbi still investigates. as for the rest of the airport, it's opening, and functionaling
normally. but terminal 3 remains closed. >> are there still signs of yesterday's chaos around the airport? anything specific that you're seeing? >> reporter: no. i mean, if you look around, it seems to be pretty much normal. we're seeing planes both take off and land. we should point out, though, that we just got updated numbers. we've had more than 1500 flights impacted in some fashion as a result of the shooting. and that equates to more than 167,000 passengers who were impacted in some fashion. of course, those who really felt it the most were those who were in terminal 3. i want you to listen now to one person who described the scene. >> i ran out onto tarmac and away from the -- the terminal where the shooting was happening. and as i was running, the police came toward me and, you know, in
their cars racing toward me. they jumped out of the cars, pulled their guns, said, hands up. hands up. get down on the ground and face down. from their perspective, i was the first guy running away from this running across the tarmac which is obviously not normal. so i laid down on the ground. basically they just came over to me and said, stay down. stay down. they didn't ask me any questions and put me in handcuffs and basically just said, stay there. >> reporter: as for the alleged shooter himself, paul ciancia, we know that he took several rounds in the chest. at this point we do not havenies condition. >> thank you. >> and we've got new information on the assess suspect. cnn has learned he may be a conspiracy theorist. they recovered materials from him referencing the new world order which conspiracy theorists believe is an elite group bent on domination. this video was shot exclusively
by cnn affiliate, it shows what appears to be the suspect handcuffed to a gurney arriving at a hospital. he's 23-year-old paul anthony ciancia. he lives in l.a. but he lives in new jersey. >> and for a lot of people at l.a.x., the only plan when they heard those gunshots was, run, and run fast. some had no idea where to go, what to do. good the airport let them down? let's ask an airport safety expert who joins me now from miami. good morning to you. on a scale of 1 to 10, what do you think? how was the response by l.a.x. security yesterday? >> i think the response from 1 to 10 was actually a 10. every major airport in the united states has the highest
concentration of law enforcement personnel between tsa, local police, and customs and border protection. it's just a matter of seconds before local and law enforcement police can apprehend a suspect. >> what should someone do if they're caught in a situation like what happened on friday? >> well, this is a matter of instinct. the first thing that human being tends to do is actually to take cover and/or to run away perhaps. and in this case, many people decided to start running. and this could be a problem because if you have law enforcement engaging in a shooting with a suspect, there could be stray bullets and passengers can be hit. but this is just a matter of how each individual reacts to the specific situation. >> how hard do you think it was for the police yesterday in this incident to sort of size up what was going on and try to get control of the situation?
>> the police handled it very, very well. and again, we have to understand and -- and the public, the general public needs to realize that this is a public place. the incident happened outside the passenger checkpoint security area, also known as a sterile area. so it could have happened at a shopping mall, at a parking lot. and again, the difference between these two places that i just mentioned and the airport is the fact that local police are there within seconds. and they handled it perfect. from what we have seen on the video shots, they handled it very, very good. and thank god nobody else got injured. >> a lot of people are suggesting that the tsa, the officers, should actually be armed. do you think that's a good solution? would that create more of a crossfire and injuring more people? >> it's hard to predict.
every law enforcement that's trained in weapons handling should know exactly know how to handle not only the weapon but the specific situation. i do believe that customs and border protection agents do have guns and even some tsa officers do carry guns as well. like i said before, this individual or these individuals have a lot of training, including facing situations that are very critical. >> thanks so much for your time. >> thank you. >> hundreds of people, they were aquat in the chaos yesterday. we've seen the video. most of the airport was evacuated. people were not sure what was happening. they just heard, run, get out. they followed the crowd. airport officials say more than 1500 flights and 167,000 passengers were impact the. one of them, natalie. she was supposed to fly for san francisco for a grad school interview. the area was evacuated. she was push the out of the the airport and she took pictures of
all the chaos. we're fortunate to have natalie on the phone. could you describe -- we're looking at the pictures. describe the scene in the te terminal for us. >> i was sitting on the bench outside of my gate. and all the sudden there was a flood of people that came in. and a lot of us thought maybe there's a plane that had just debarked or something. there was no word over the loud speakers or anything, you just heard people saying, shooter, shooter. there's a shooter in the other terminal. we didn't know how to react. a lot of us just kind of got up and were shuffling around. but some people lined up near a gate and thinking that was an exist or lined up near the emergency exit. but honestly, everybody was very confused. and none of the agents who worked there knew what to do. people were reacting in their own ways. they were either yelling. one person even yells, bomb.
because they thought the security clicking going off was some kind of threat. and there was some people acting like this was just another l.a.x. inconvenience. and for me, i was very scared because i didn't know what was going on. we had no information. and we were finally told to go on the tarmac outside. and when we saw the helicopters flying overhead and, you know, word that the shooter was still at large, you know, we were -- we didn't really know how to react. i took to twitter to see what was going on. but it was definitely a novemberle experience. >> we had right before you a security expert who rated the law enforcement's response at a 10. you're saying that the officials there at the airport, maybe not law enforcement, just the workers for for the airports, that they didn't give you much informationment you were out on that tarmac how long? >> i was out on that tarmac for probably about half an hour. half an hour or a little bit
more. and we didn't get word about anything. any official update until we were taken from the tarmac to a wing of the international airport -- i mean the international terminal. and two hours after waiting in the international terminal, we got one southwest agent who gave us an update. but honestly, it was a very, very long time. so a lot of people were kept in the dark until then or just heard from word of mouth what was going on. >> we've been listening to a lot of stories this morning from all of the different perspectives. thank you so much for your story and the photographs. and good luck on your grad school interviews. >> thank you. >> okay. next we turn to another big story of the day. the red sox victory parade. a live report from boston coming up next. >> and one year into his second term, how is president obama doing? should his legacy be judged by
