4:00 am
good morning, america. this morning, on fire. wildfires sending giant plumes of thick smoke over a major american city. the thick haze blinding drivers and making it very hard to breathe. standoff. s.w.a.t. teams surround a house outside sacramento, where a gunman who shot four law enforcement officers holed up. so, how did it all end? fancy. >> unsealed. a new document made public in the unsolved murder of child beauty queen jonbenet ramsey. why a grand jury voted to indict her parents. 14 and a little help from his friends. famous faces filled paul mccartney's amazing new music video. so, how many stars can you spot?
4:01 am
saw meryl streep. i didn't see anybody else. >> ron's still counting. >> i didn't see. >> ron is skeptical, as usual. there's allegedly celebrities in that video. also coming up this morning, the white house is calling in an outside troubleshooter to fix the disaster. and they set a firm date for fixing the problem. can they make it stick? >> kathleen sebelius facing pressure to resign over the debacle. and slip sliding away. the preseason game that had to be canceled when the players couldn't keep on their feet. what caused all of the spills? they're not dancers. also this morning, a love story in the news. she didn't even know him. but she agreed to save his life
4:02 am
by giving him a kidney. this morning, what happened next. this is a great story. >> can see in hollywood. but we're going to start with the shroud of smoke created by wildfires in texas. gusting winds causing the swell to engulf houston. it's creating possible health and driving hazards. and ginger zee's here to tell us the latest. how did this all start? >> this fire is about 60 miles east of houston. as of last night, wasn't put out yet. but they were expecting to. and you put on an east wind. and it blows into places like galveston and houston. both reporting they had driving conditions reduced. and a lot of people were coughing. anybody with respiratory problems, with a big issue. let's look at the video what it looks like. the fire really getting going there. and there's, again, this is huge. thousands of acres, that over a preserve. it wasn't over anywhere that people live. it was just that the smoke blew in. this is what's going to happen today.
4:03 am
we're going to be very dry. houston is a foot below average when it comes to rainfall. very dry in parts of texas. continue all that today. but the east wind will start to turn ahead of the low-pressure system. they finally get some rain by the time we end this weekend and start the workweek. much more coming up on the cold. atlanta in the frost and freeze advisories. we'll be talking about it. stick around. >> thank you, ginger. now, to the other developing story overnight. s.w.a.t. teams in a neighborhood over sacramento for a tense standoff. it started when four law enforcement officers, including a federal agent, were allegedly shot by a parolee, caught up in a gang sweep. and abc's aditi roy has been covering this all night from our l.a. bureau. adi aditi, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan. the pictures you're about to see are incredibly dramatic. it was a night of terror for neighbors, as gunshots went flying between the suspect and officers. this morning, this small california community is reeling from an overnight gun battle that has left four cops
4:04 am
hospitalized, including a federal agent. according to roseville police, the shooting began at 3:00 p.m., when an immigration and customs enforcement agent was working with local cops to track down 32-year-old parolee samuel duran. police say duran, opened fire, hitting the i.c.e. agent. >> we have a great community of law enforcement that's going to deal with this. >> reporter: duran ran to a relative's home, where police say another barrage of gunfire took down three more officers. >> it happened so fast, he jumped the fence. and then, this hunt is here. >> reporter: duran escaped once again. eventually barricades himself inside this vacant home before finally surrendering, ending the 9 1/2-hour night of terror for these residents. >> it was a very tough day. it's unsettling, i think, for all of us. no one's immune to this sort of
4:05 am
tragedy and this sort of criminality. >> reporter: the suspect was taken to the local hospital for routine medical clearance. he's in the process of being booked and taken to jail. bianna, some incredibly tense moments for hours on end. >> a night of terror for the people of sacramento. aditi, thank you. we're going to turn to the latest on obama care, the debacle. the white house prompting the new federal health insurance website will be fully fixed. but it will take weeks. the problems, there are dozens of them at, are more than we were told. and jeff zeleny has the latest from the white house. good morning, jeff. >> reporter: good morning, bianna. the white house is hitting reboot, now saying the troubled website will be ready but not until the end of next month. in his weekly address this morning, president obama offering a blunt admission about the failures in his signature health care law. >> as you may have heard, the site isn't working the way it's supposed to yet.
4:06 am
>> reporter: the white house acknowledging the full scope of problems with its beleaguered website. the white house is hiring a new troubleshooter, promising by november 30th to fix the errors. the president trying to downplay the setback. >> some people have poked fun at me for sounding like an insurance salesman. that's okay. i would still be out there championing this law, even if the website were perfect. >> reporter: but perfect, it's not. administration officials say the website performance is improving. but still not signing up enough customers. while 90% of applicants can now create an account on the website, the next step remains an obstacle. only three in ten attempts to actually buy insurance are being completed. >> good morning, everybody. >> reporter: republicans are calling for health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius to resign. on a trip to texas friday, she said she was blindsided by the failed website. >> i didn't realize it wouldn't be operationing optimally before
4:07 am
the launch. >> reporter: but the criticism is coming from all sides. ten democratic senators are urging the white house to delay at least some provisions of the affordable care act. new hampshire senator jeanne shaheen summed up concern in a letter to the president. saying, allowing extra time for consumers is critically important. this morning, the president is asking for patience. >> we are going to get it working as smoothly as it's supposed to. we have people working overtime, 24/7, to boost capacity and address these problems every, single day. >> reporter: now, even administration officials concede this rollout has been nothing short of a disaster. mainly because it's giving all of the critics of this plan new ammunition here. but those critics will be out in full force next week, when kathleen sebelius testifies on capitol hill in front of this congressional committee still investigating this health care site. dan and bianna? >> the pressure continues. you have republicans and democrats attacking what's been going on and how poorly this has been planned and rolled out.
4:08 am
jeff, our thanks to you. and we're going to turn, now, to ron claiborne with the other stories developing this morning. >> hi bianna and dan. good morning, everyone. the national security agency's website is back up and running this morning. the site had been down most of the day on friday. the agency says it was not the work of hackers attacking the network. they say the problem was, quote, an internal error that occurred during a scheduled update. and another big settlement for banking giant jpmorgan chase. chase has reached a $5 billion settlement with the federal finance housing agency. the agreement to settle the claims, chase sold toxic mortgage securities to fannie mae and freddie mac. they announced a $13 billion settlement with the justice department for its role in the 2008 financial crisis. and a big food recall to tell you about this morning. kraft foods is recalling more than 700,000 cases of its kraft and polly-o string cheeses. the cheese may spoil and change colors before the expiration
4:09 am
date on the label. kraft says it has received complaints from customers. and police in philadelphia want to get to the bottom of a joyride caught on camera. this car was caught driving down the steps of the philadelphia art museum. those steps made famous in the movie "rocky." rocky won that battle. >> spoiler alert. >> spoiler alert. police have questioned the man they believe was behind the wheel. so far, no charges have been filed. and scary moments for students on a trip in tennessee, when their bus catches fire. watch there. a passenger on the bus noticed the smoke. and the bus pulled over. the whole thing went up in flames. good news. somehow passengers and driver were able to et cetera cape. no one was hurt. hard to believe there. it's not often you hear about a basketball game being canceled in the middle of the game. that's what happened friday night at the milwaukee bucks and toronto raptors' game. the problem, as you see here, the court was too slippery. in fact, so bad, the players
4:10 am
were falling down. i guess it's not that funny. some reports say there was too much wax on the floor. but the milwaukee bucks say they are looking into exactly what happened and caused that. i guess the only good news was it was a preseason game. so, it didn't count. >> didn't make for a pretty game of basketball. >> it was not. >> ron, thanks. we're going to turn to the new revelations in the 1996 murder of a child beauty queen, jonbenet ramsey. it's not known who killed the little girl found in the basement of her colorado home. but previously sealed court documents could shed new light on the case. abc's clayton sandell has the story from boulder. good morning, clayton. >> reporter: good morning, bianna. this is where jonbenet's parents maintained a killer snuck in through the family's basement window. big questions about the case are very much alive. >> jonbenet ramsey. >> reporter: this morning, a pivotal milestone in the nearly
4:11 am
two-decade-old jonbenet ramsey is no longer secret. a 1990 grand jury indictment against her parents, now public, after local reporter, charlie brennan, sued to have it released. >> i feel it's very important that that secrecy be removed. and the people can look and see what happened and make decisions for themselves. whether they believe it was right or wrong. >> reporter: the documents reveal a grand jury voted to indict john and patsy ramsey for child abuse, resulting in death. and being accessories to a crime. but in an unusual move, the d.a. back then decided not to prosecute. >> we do not have sufficient evidence to warrant the filing of charges against anyone who has been investigated at this time. >> reporter: jonbenet was found beaten and strangled the day after christmas 1996. >> jonbenet ramsey. >> reporter: beauty pageant videos of a grown-up-looking 6-year-old, helped create a nationwide obsession with the case. her parents under suspicion from the start, blamed an unknown
4:12 am
intruder. >> did you kill your daughter? >> i did not kill my daughter. >> reporter: patsy ramsey died of cancer two years before a new district attorney said dna evidence cleared the family as suspects. >> the ramseys are innocent. 1999 information is interesting. but it is, at best, a historical footnote. it does not advance the finding of the killer of this child. >> reporter: this morning, boulder police insist this is still an open case. but it's gone cold. and 17 years later, investigators say jonbenet's killer may never face justice. dan? >> 17 years later. clayton, thank you. for more on the story, let's bring in attorney and former miami-dade county judge. let's go over this decision by the prosecutor not to file charges. how unusual is this? and what do you think was going through his mind? >> it's very unusual. keep in mind, the prosecutor is the one that brings this before
4:13 am
the grand jury. the grand jury votes to indict on two counts. and says, there's not enough. and this doesn't happen very often. we have to keep in mind, what the grand jury is looking for, is probable cause. not proof beyond a reasonable doubt, which is what the prosecutor has to have to obtain a conviction in the case. >> he felt he could not do that. you have keyed in on one detail in a the parents were indicted as accessories. what does that tell you specifically? >> it's very interesting when we look at this indictment, that the parents apparently, not only were they charged or the grand jury thought there was enough to be charged with the child resulting in death, but also that they were trying to cover something up, which is what that second count was. basically, an obstruction of justice, that there was somebody else out there and they were attempting to cover up who the somebody else was. we don't know and probably will never know. >> it's clear that the grand jury thought possibly there was somebody outside of the parents involved in this crime? >> absolutely. and that the ramseys were attempting to cover it up.
4:14 am
>> and finally, this is a cold case, as clayton said. 17 years old now. can this discussion that we're having right now and the fact that the documents have been released, can this help generate new leads, do you think? >> well, obviously, the information we have is not really going to help in the investigation. but how it is going to help is that we're talking about it. we're sitting here talking about it today. and it bridges it back in the forefront. it brings back a little girl that there's never been justice for her. and her killer is still walking around somewhere. >> the killer is still out there walking around somehow. ada, thank you very much. biannaing back over to you. >> thank you so much for coming in. we're going to turn to new accusations of racial profiling, with rap mogul jay z caught in the middle. one of the most famous names in the music business, is feeling pressure to bow out of a lucrative fashion deal with one of the most exclusive stores in the country. this as another famous department store is also being singled out. abc's rob nelson is here with
4:15 am
the details. >> reporter: good morning. it is a store synonymous with high-end new york shopping. but this morning, barney's is finding itself embroiled in a controversy over race, as even more accusations of racial profiling come to light. ♪ you know what i'm stopping you for ♪ ♪ because i'm young and black and my hat's real low ♪ >> reporter: possibly the most well-known lyrics in jay z's career, "99 problems" is coming out. rob brown, the actor best known for his roles in "finding forrester" and the hbo series, "treme" is speaking out, saying he was racially profiled in a department store. he is suing macy's and the nypd it says that the store alerted police, after he paid for a watch. >> this is an i.d. on me. i just bought this watch. >> reporter: in a statement, macy's says, we are investigating the alleged
4:16 am
claims, as we were just made aware of this lawsuit. we do not comment on matters in litigation. the ceo of barney's is calling alleged profiling by workers in his stores unacceptable. two young african-american shoppers came forward this week, saying their skin color alone prompted suspicion by workers and police. trayon christian, a 19-year-old college student, who bought a $350 belt, says he was stopped and handcuffed by undercover cops, on claims that his card was fake. >> i showed my i.d. and may went through. >> reporter: kayla phillips, a 21-year-old nursing student was stopped by police, after she used her tax rebate to buy a $2,300 bag from barney's. >> i was feeling helpless, demeaned. >> reporter: this morning, jay z is facing pressure to bow out of his partnership with the high-end retailer, that carries items designed by the mogul. a petition for jay z to cut i
4:17 am
ties has 4,000 signatures. meanwhile, some jay z fans are pushing back on calls for the rapper to ditch barney's. saying part of the proceeds for the deal will go to the rapper's scholarship charity. jay z's line is set to hit shelves next month. >> big p.r. nightmare for the stores. and the shopping season about to begin. >> not the news they want. >> thank you, rob. appreciate it. time to check the national forecast. let's get it back to ginger. hey, ginger? >> cold is the headline in the southwest. a place like huntsville, alabama, where they have their first freeze on november 1st. going a little early. about a week early. atlanta, in the mid-30s. everyone, scraping frost off this morning. going, come on. isn't it still october? i've got some good news. but first, i have to show you how cold it was in north carolina. the mountains of north carolina, of course. mt. mitchell. you had ice all over. you had to close roads. national parks were closed up
4:18 am

>> most depressing time of the week for ginger. thank you, ginger. now, to the bride and groom on many levels a perfect match. >> really, they are. kyle fralic needed a kidney to save his life. but never expected to find love along the way. reena ninan is here with this incredible story. hey, reena. >> reporter: hi, guys. it is an incredible story. it was at age 12, that a screening suggested that kyle froelich might have a kidney failure. by 18, he was in search of a kidney transplant to keep him alive. senior year of high school holds so much promise for most. but for kyle froelich, it seemed like a death sentence. >> with my blood type and age, i was looking at three to five years to receive a kidney. >> reporter: in 2009, he met a girl at a car show. chelsea had heard about the situation from a family friend.
4:21 am
>> i just knew. and i told him i wanted to give him a kidney. >> reporter: while he wanted to believe she would follow through, he didn't hold on to that hope. >> i was appreciative that she said that. but i just -- i assumed it wasn't going to happen. >> reporter: little did he know, chelsea understood the importance of life-saving donations better than most. >> my dad passed away from cancer. and he needed a bone marrow transplant. i wanted to help him. >> reporter: they were a perfect match. she agreed to give the stranger her kidney. in spite of her family's concern. >> as it got more serious, they got real worried. which i understand. but they were okay with it after they realized i wasn't going to change my mind. >> reporter: after passing all the mess tests, less than a year after their fateful meeting, chelsea and kyle went under the knife. >> we've been doing very great since the surgery. i don't feel any different than i did before i gave a kidney. >> i feel a lot different than i
4:22 am
did before i got a kidney. >> kyle felt good an hour after surgery. >> reporter: the good feeling continued as the two started seeing each other. and two weeks ago, chelsea vowed to spend the rest of her life with the man whose life she saved. >> i know sometimes we get in an argument, i tell him i'll take my kidney back. and we both laugh. and it's over. >> reporter: they have such a good sense of humor. they have an 11-month-old baby and a daughter from a previous marriage. and there's nearly 99,000 people who are waiting for kidney transplants. >> i love how she can always play the kidney card now. for the rest of her life. >> thank you very much. appreciate it. coming up here on "gma," the star witness. the other woman taking the stand of the doctor accused of murdering his wife. gypsy willis, giving details of the affair. >> very informal, discreet. >> the question in the air here, was she mistress and motive?
