it is first-degree murder. he stalked him down for however long it took before he decided to kill him. >> rage. not surprised. in pain. in pain for his family. for his community. pain, deep, deep pain and rage. got to end. >> one thing we know very well about oakland, it has a very rich history of protest and this will not be the only protest we see here. we are hearing there will be additional protest tomorrow at noon and at 4:00 p.m. in fact, we heard one of those protests will be at the bart station. this is, of course, the weekend that the movie came out. certainly some significance behind that protest tomorrow. we'll have to wait and see what tomorrow brings. >> kristen ayers in oakland, thank you. new tonight, san francisco police have identified the suspect in yesterday's shootings at the jury mart. 23-year-old, barry white has been charged with two counts of murder and seven counts of
attempted murder. kpix5 talked with employees about the tragedy. >> i had gotten two phone calls almost simultaneously. >> one of scores of store owners who hunkered down in their shops after friday's shooting left two women dead and a man wounded. >> one was from my daughter telling me there was a shooting at my husband's building and the other was my husband just letting me know there was a shooting and he was okay. >> suspect then exited and went eastbound on the 800 block of brandon where he was engaged by three police officers responding to shots fired call. he produced a revolver, fired upon the officers. >> chief greg says the suspect ran into a restaurant, continued shooting. but before police returned fire, threw down his gun and surrendered. today the restaurant owner told
us police asked them not to talk. a crew was cleaning up the crime scene, the jewelry store inside the building. but the talk says the jeweler was about the murder victims. women he refers to as the girls. >> everybody was praying for these girls. nobody was talking about anything else but about the girls. because we know girls. they are sweet people. >> merchants were locked out except for a few minutes to retrieve merchandise. he met charlotte murphy and peter mcguire with a sample wedding band. >> we had no idea what happened, but why here? what happened? why did someone come in? we are shocked as well. we have no idea what happened. >> but you're going to get the ring? >> oh yeah, of course. absolutely. >> he couldn't sleep last night. everyone is shocked. >> i saw my husband last night, i just hugged him and thank god he's alive. scary. >> in san francisco, don knapp, kpix5. >> police say the suspect had
at least one business transaction with the owner of the jewelry store. robbery does not appear to be the motive. an illegal left turn is blamed for a muni crash that sent 20 people to the hospital. the crash happened around 1:00 this afternoon in evans avenue. the van and light rail train were traveling on third street when the van turned in front of the train. >> the driver of the muni bus has been interviewed. there's video on file with the muni. light rail vehicle as well as this particular intersection has a video monitor also. >> the crash caused major delays on muni's line. pg and e was called in to handle downed power lines. there's no life threatening injuries. remembering the victims of asiana flight 214. what we are learning about the third teen killed in the crash. and going head to head on
the george zimmerman murder now let's take another look at the crowds as the protesters are angry about the not guilty verdict in the george zimmerman murder trial. right now, we are looking at protesters in oakland. kristen ayers has been reporting it has been very peaceful. a handful of people. but very quiet. they are planning other protests tomorrow. and this is a live look now at a memorial in sanford, florida. the 17-year-old was shot on february 26, 2012, and today the verdict came down at not guilty by six women jurors in sanford, florida, who say that george zimmerman acted in self- defense. so, he was found not guilty. this does bring into question the stand your ground indivisible are in a handful of
states that allow people to use force legally if they feel they are using it in self-defense. a look at that memorial. but joe vasquez joins us from san francisco where there's an activist group that is organizing what it calls an emergency to protest. >> reporter: just across the street, the remnants of this protest. it has been going on for the last couple of hours. a group called the answer coalition, act now to stop war and racism has been marching through these streets. they called an emergency protest as they called it, immediately following the george zimmerman announcement of the verdict. now the police department is on hand. we have seen a lot of folks, cops on bikes, and other police officers in cars in the area. they said they had resources in place this weekend anticipating the verdict of the trial. and they said quote, they will facilitate citizen's first amendment rights as long as they are peaceful. now as we understand it, they
just wrapped up for the evening, but they called for another demonstration tomorrow at 4th. make that powell and market street tomorrow. but my understanding is they have broken up. it is it for the night. there do not appear to be demonstrations that we have seen through the years that little groups break off and cause vandalism or violence. none of that. a peaceful demonstration here in the mission and it looks like it has concluded. >> joe vasquez, thank you. we have been hearing from people not happy with the verdict calling for peaceful demonstrations. whichever side you sided with, but here in oakland and san francisco, we have peaceful demonstrations and that is good. well we have learned the name of the third teenager killed in the asiana crash landing. chinese state media identifying her as lewy liu yipeng.

many of the other survivors are being isolated under tight security. at the airport crown plaza hotel where asiana airlines booked every room. the attorney is one of few outsiders who was allowed inside. >> they are scared. they are in this catch 22. i want to go home. i want to be with my family. i don't want to get on an airplane. >> some of the survivors say they are not getting clear answers from the airline. they have been given $400 in cash, but one week after the crash, their needs are far greater than that. what is back to normal is the runway where the jet crashed. it's back in business after crews repaired and repaved it. the wreckage of the plane sits on another part of airport property. having all four runways open means flights in and out of sfo are no longer being delayed. travelers we talked to couldn't be happier. >> there was obviously delays
for the last few days, but everything seems to be clear now, our flight is on time. >> in the days after the crash, flights were diverted and that's no longer the case. hundreds of people survived the crash of asiana flight 214 thanks to the quick actions of flight attendants and emergency responders. hear their emotional stories in a presentation of our kpix5 special, the heros of flight 214. that's tomorrow after cbs sunday morning at 7:30. well, oakland has reached a deal that will give city workers their first raise in six years. the workers staged a one-day strike on july 1, but they agreed to negotiate. the new contract gives them a 2% raise this year and a 1% increase next july. the unions did not agree to new concessions the city asked for, including paying for health insurance and paying more toward their pensions. the first real race of the america's cup finally took

una refused to sail because of it last weekend. so new zealand was the only competitor. this weekend, finally a real race. >> a speed that was unbelievable. >> and far from packing the marina green, those that came to see the race were impressed. >> arms length taking pictures, this is beautiful. >> boosting hope for the summer events. >> there's a lot of things that could go wrong. and it won't take much to go wrong for there to be a different winner. >> in san francisco, kpix5. >> and the winner of the cup will go on to challenge south floor mogul team u.s.a., which won the america's cup in 2010. mild conditions in much of the bay area today. here is brian in for roberta gonzalez with our pinpoint forecast. >> we had a nice day around the bay area today and more of the same for tomorrow with a
