Dallas Nurse Nina Pham beats Ebola, meets Obama

It was just a few weeks ago that a young nurse in Dallas contracted the deadly Ebola virus. Now 13 days after testing positive, Nina Pham has been declared free of the deadly virus.

"I feel fortunate and blessed to be standing here today," she said. "Throughout this ordeal, I have put my faith in God and my medical team."

Before she went home, she met with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office.

This comes as Dr. Craig Spencer, the first person diagnosed with Ebola in New York City, is now in stable condition. His fiancée and two other friends are all under quarantine.

Officials are now tracing all of Spencer's movements since he returned from treating Ebola patients in Guinea.

Social media gives insight into Washington state school shooter

A student who witnesses say was the homecoming prince opened fire in his high school cafeteria, killing a young woman and wounding four other students before turning the gun on himself.

Three of those students are in critical condition Friday night - all with serious head wounds. CNN is learning more about the shooter who is said to be freshman Jaylen Fryberg. Students say he was very popular, played football and was recently named to the homecoming court.

So what made him commit this heinous crime? CNN's Kyung Lah digs into his social media profiles, which show a much more troubling side.

Should health care workers returning from Ebola hot zones be quarantined?

A doctor who recently returned from Guinea has tested positive for Ebola - the first case of the deadly virus in New York City and the fourth diagnosed in the United States.

The doctor, identified as Craig Spencer, 33, came back from treating Ebola patients in Guinea on October 17 and developed a fever, nausea, pain and fatigue Thursday. He is isolated in stable condition at New York's Bellevue Hospital Center, one of the eight hospitals statewide that New York Gov.

Spencer, who is in intensive care, went for a jog, may have gone to a restaurant, traveled the city's subway system and went bowling before feeling ill, but authorities sought to assure an anxious public that the likelihood of him spreading the virus was low.

"We want to state at the outset there is no reason for New Yorkers to be alarmed," Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters late Thursday.

There's no question Spencer was heroic -  he traveled to west Africa to treat Ebola patients. But many people are outraged that he traveled around the most populated city in America when he was feeling "sluggish."

As a doctor, should he have known better?

Miguel Marquez has the report.
