i'm anne-marie green. we begin with a deadly mass shooting in southern california. the nation's third mass shooting in just over two weeks. at least four people were killed including a child. a fifth person was wounded and is in critical condition. the shooting started yesterday evening at a two-story office building in the city of orange just southeast of los angeles. when police arrived, the gunman opened fire on them. officers then fired back. the suspect was wounded, but it's unclear if the wound was self-inflicted or caused by police gunfire. the motive is unknown. officers say there is no threat to the community. >> well, i can tell you orange is a very safe city. we don't have stuff that happens like this often. it's been many, many years before we've had an incident like this happen. >> one firearm was recovered at the scene. police say the shooting happened on both levels of the building which houses several businesses including an insurance office, financial consulting firm, and a phone repair store.
and now to a setback in the race to vaccinate americans against covid. johnson & johnson is delaying shipments of its single-shot vaccine. a large batch, reportedly up to 15 million doses, failed quality standards and cannot be used. danya bacchus explains what happened. >> reporter: the mishap with johnson & johnson's single-dose covid vaccine reportedly happened several weeks ago at a baltimore manufacturing plant. "the new york times" says the vaccine's ingredients were mixed up at the plant run by one of j&j's manufacturing partners. the setback brings short-term planned shipments into question as the company accesses the situation. j&j said it's still aiming to deliver 100 million doses during the first half of this year. meanwhile, the u.s. is struggling to vaccinate americans amid what some health experts fear is a looming fourth wave of covid cases with numbers rising among young people. >> they have not been vaccinated yet. the second is they're now going out and about.
>> reporter: new data from the cdc shows the highest number of cases per capita concentrated in michigan and the northeast. president biden's covid response team says vaccines and masks remain the best defense. >> we need a simple thing of every governor, mayor, and local leader, and that is to heed what the president is asking in return. simply to maintain or to reinstate mask mandates. >> reporter: at least 18 states have lifted capacity limits on most or all businesses, and 18 currently have no mask mandate. two more, alabama and utah, will discontinue theirs in the next two weeks. danya bacchus, cbs news. ahead on "cbs this morning," we will talk with dr. anthony fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert. he's going to break down the impact of the ruined johnson & johnson vaccines and his message for americans hesitant to get the shot. testimony will resume today in the trial of former minneapolis police officer derek chauvin.
yesterday jurors saw footage of george floyd inside the grocery store and new body camera video before he died. skyler henry is in minneapolis. we're also learning more about a key witness? >> reporter: yeah, hey, anne-marie, good morning to you. the public had never seen either of these perspectives before yesterday. that body camera footage also revealed that that witness was with george floyd when police originally stopped the car that he was in. now we're learning through court records that he's refusing to testify and is invoking the fifth amendment. jurors in the derek chauvin trial watched video of george floyd being restrained by police shortly before his death. parts of the body camera recordings had not been seen publicly before, including one which chauvin reacts to what happened to floyd. >> trying to control this guy because he's a sizable guy. >> yeah, and i got to get -- >> he's probably on something. >> reporter: chauvin made the
comment after being confronted by a witness who had urged floyd to comply with the officers. charles mcmillan wept as he relived the moment in court. another witness worked at the store where floyd had just paid with an allegedly counterfeit $20 bill. >> kind of took him a little long to get to what he was trying to say. so it would appear that he was high. >> reporter: in minneapolis, the chauvin trial looms large, especially at the neighborhood where floyd was arrested laugh memorial day. cedric steel operates a restaurant around the block from cub foods. he said the attention has commanded his attention since the start. >> george floyd is all of us. you know what i mean? and it's just not just minnesota, it's the whole world. it affected the whole world. so yes, sir, i definitely do want justice. >> reporter: today prosecutors are expected to question investigators about technical aspects of the case. and again, prosecutors in this
case will call on experts they feel will speak to more the technical aspects of this case. we're expected to hear more of that eventually. we will hear from the minneapolis police chief. anne-marie? >> that should be very interesting testimony. skyler henry in minneapolis, thank you. so to the latest on the crisis at the u.s.-mexico border now. there is dramatic new video of smugglers dropping children over a border wall. we want to warn you, it's tough to watch. video captured by border patrol shows one smuggler perched on top of the wall. two small kids are dropped separately over the 14-foot barrier. the smugglers run away. the toddler and her 5-year-old sister who were from ecuador are now in the care of u.s. border patrol. florida republican congressman matt gaetz will remain on the house judiciary committee for now as federal authorities investigate whether he had an inappropriate sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl.
they're scrutinizing whether he paid for her travel over state lines or provided anything of value in exchange for sex. potential violations of federal sex trafficking laws. house republican leader kevin mccarthy said gaetz would be removed from his committees if the charges were proven. >> haven't talked to mr. gaetz yet. he denies the story. i look forward to talking with mr. gaetz. i haven't heard anything from the doj or others, but i will deal with it if anything comes to be true. >> gaetz, an ally of president trump, denies the accusations and claims it's part of a multimillion dollar extortion scheme. it is opening day in major league baseball, and many teams are welcoming back fans for the first time in almost a year. the texas rangers are allowing full capacity, 40,000 people. but it's a decision not sitting well with president biden. >> that's a decision they made. i think it's a mistake. they should listen to dr. fauci and the scientists and the
experts. but i think it's not responsible. >> mr. biden appeared last night on espn urging fans to follow health protocols. the rangers' first home game is monday. fans will have to wear masks except when eating or drinking. mr. biden also supported the idea of moving the all-star game out of georgia following the passage of a new voting law that critics say restricts voting access. so coming up, police wrap up their investigation into tiger woods' car crash. why they are not releasing the cause. and fuller flights. when delta airlines will stop blocking middle seats. this is the "cbs morning news." seats. this is the "cbs morning news." still lolots of roomom. just more e to view. ststill the bibig move. just more e moving. ststill singining. just morore in tune.e. still l hard to fifind a spo. just easasier to parark.
