5 Things to Know for Your New Day – Tuesday, November 5

Suspect in New Jersey mall shooting takes his own life, the Miami Dolphins suspend a Pro Bowl lineman and the DMX rap sheet grows with latest arrest.

It's Tuesday, and here are the “5 Things to Know for Your New Day."
Every weekday morning around 6, we’ll hit the top five stories of the day, clue you in on a few other buzzy items, and let you know about some of the must-watch stories coming up on CNN’s morning show, “New Day.”


Terror at the mall: A New Jersey man kills himself after opening fire at a shopping mall. Police found the body of Richard Shoop of Teaneck, New Jersey, in a secluded area of the Westfield Garden State Plaza mall in Paramus early this morning, just hours after he opened fire, sending hundreds of patrons fleeing. They say he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. No one else was hurt. Witnesses tell CNN they heard up to nine gunshots.

Poppy Harlow joins "New Day" from the mall with the latest developments.


Party planners: Key elections are taking place today in New Jersey, New York, Virginia and Alabama. Need clues for 2014 and 2016? These are good places to start. Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is expected to easily win re-election in this prelim to a possible White House bid. Michael Bloomberg is wrapping up his tenure as mayor of the Big Apple after a dozen years. Bill de Blasio is the leading candidate to replace him there. In Virginia, former chair of the Democratic National Committee Terry McAuliffe is the favorite to win the governor's seat. He's a political ally of President Obama and Hillary Clinton. In Alabama, the GOP establishment and the tea party are slugging it out for the Republican nomination in Alabama's 1st Congressional district. Can the splintered party heal?

Join "New Day" as Erin McPike, Chris Lawrence and Deborah Feyerick spell out the issues throughout the morning. John King provides his insight at 6. CNN political commentators Will Cain and Marc Lamont Hill are on at 7. Crossfire host Newt Gingrich appears at 8.


Miami misconduct: The Miami Dolphins suspend Pro Bowl lineman Richie Incognito after allegations of harassment by a teammate. Jonathan Martin abruptly left the team last week. Reports say representatives for Martin submitted voicemails from Incognito, containing racial slurs and threats of physical violence, to the NFL and the Dolphins. The league says it will review the case. Some wonder if Incognito's playing days are over.

John Zarrella is live from Miami at 6 and 7.


Race to the Red Planet: India aims to be the first Asian nation to successfully send a spacecraft to Mars. The orbiter began its 300-day journey to the Red Planet today from an island off the southern coast of the subcontinent. If successful, it will map the Martian surface and analyze its atmosphere. Only the United States, Russia and the European Union have been successful in reaching Earth's nearest neighbor. China and Japan have failed in their attempts. This is a big deal for the competitive Asian nations.

Malika Kapur brings us up to date on India's Mars mission at 6.


What's my name?: South Carolina police are getting to know rapper DMX pretty well these days after his third arrest in recent months. He spent three hours in jail last night before posting bond on charges of driving with a suspended license and having no car tag or insurance. An officer who recognized him pulled him over in front of the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport. There are other arrests in his home state for marijuana possession, driving under the influence and driving without a seat belt. Authorities are familiar with DMX - whose real name is Earl Simmons - in Arizona, too, where he's been arrested a handful of times since 2007.

Michaela Pereira reports news headlines throughout the morning.

Those are your five biggies for the day. Here are a few others that are brewing and have the Internet buzzing.

- The Fresh Prince of Hasselhoff: Remember when David Hasselhoff and Will Smith were cool? Neither do we, but we still love this mash-up.

- It glows when you lick it: Great slogan, huh? A UK ice cream company, working with a Chinese scientist who figured out how to synthesize the luminescence protein from jellyfish, brings us this cool and expensive treat. Want to light up your own scoop? Plunk down $225 and it's yours.


- Rock, paper, scissors, cheater: How's this for a science project? The brilliant folks at the University of Tokyo are the proud developers of a robot that always wins at rock, paper, scissors. In a thousandth of a second, it recognizes what shape the hand is making and then chooses a winning move. It can't be beat.

- Serge the Llama: Hijinks are bound to happen when you mix five drunk French teenagers with an after-hours circus. The kids stumbled across the fluffy beast from the Andes after a night on the town in Bordeaux, the country's wine capital. Failing to get a finicky zebra to cooperate, they took Serge on a tour of the city's tram system until a ticket inspector put a stop to it.


- German rap: Six guys, five beer bottles, one crushed can and a helium balloon. Anything else you need to know?

There you go. All you need to know to get an early start to your morning.
Be sure to tune in to "New Day" from 6 to 9 a.m. ET. Join us at NewDayCNN.com and go and have a GREAT NEW DAY!

    For those of you trying to make Inconito hazing a racial thing are CLUELESS at best! This hazing happens in the NFL and on college football teams all the time. I played in college and was hazed, BIG DEAL! What makes this so bizarre is #1: Incognito is scum! At no time was i threatened or my family threatened when I was hazed in college, that is over the line! #2: Why in the world did Martin not punch Incognito in the face? Ladies and gentlemen there is a time when turning the other cheek or looking to "tell" on people isnt the answer, wont be the answer, and will often make things worse. There are bullies because people who stick up for themselves are made to think they are BRUTES or are WRONG! That is BS, rely on myself and stick for myself and my family, or rely on Government and laws to fix the problem!!! HMMMMM, it is a no brainer, i will rely on me, as we have seen the govt cant do much of anything right. But, hey, lets waste more tax money on pointless studies of human interaction and psyches while these nitwits continue to get away with this stuff!

      You are such an idiot. He called Martin the N word, how is it not racial? And he extorted al least $15,000 from him and threatened his family.

    Russia is a Eurasian country and I would still consider it to be the first Asian county to successfully send a spacecraft to Mars. Venus is also closer to earth than Mars. Neither of these facts diminishes even remotely what India is attempting. I hope that they are successful.

    Has Incognito made a statement or anything as of yet? Or at least publicly apologized? Not like it would make a difference, I'm sure.

    Incognito chose to attack a fellow player on the basis if his race? Did he bother to look around age see how many players in thus league are Black? Not very bright, is he?
