6:02 pm
pistachio road. le, police say, shot 5 at them as they approached, so they regrouped and went into the residence. >> he had the victim. he had a firearm and began it fire on the officers. at that point it became obvious the victim's life was in imminent danger and the s.w.a.t. officers decided it make a crisis entry. they went to the front of the house, encountered the suspect again, a second time inside the residence. suspect opened fire on the officers with a firearm and one of our s.w.a.t. officers was able to get a shot off and hit the suspect that suspect was pronounced dead inside the resident. >> not all that much is happening. there are a lot of offices here in this area in san jose. the best news of all, we are told, that taylor vo, the 11-year-old who was abducted, was not harmed. she was taken to the hospital for observation, but she is okay and will be reunited with her

family. scott budman, fl bc, bay area news. >> now only on a story you will see on nbc bay area on our investigative team digs deep. 49er fever hit the bay area and ticket prices are sky high. but that doesn't reach elected officials. luxury seats free of charge. tony is here with details. tony, if you are on the story, i presume rules are being broken or there is a gray area. >> exactly. we know how much tickets are on face value. but there are rules that elected leaders and employees are prevented from accepting gifts of $420 in any year from a group. but these tickets come because after loophole. get elected and win two tickets to every 49ers football games, including playoffs. >> an fran mayor ed lee raising
6:04 pm
the flag. mayor lee won't be alone. he gets a free box at candlestick park. luxury box that includes 12 tickets to the big game. get elected, get tickets. all 11 members of the city's board of supervisors also receive free tickets. two stadium seats for every home game including the playoffs. >> it's very improper and it is unethical. >> peter keen is an edge sift and professor of law at golden gate university. >> the supervisor getting this type of gifting with not paying for it, that has an enormous appearance of impropriety and shouldn't be done. >> the city park gets free tickets. the seven member rec and park commission also gets a luxury box. big enough to seat 20. while fans pay, free tickets are available to elect he leaders and some well positioned city employees. >> what it says to me is that the supervisors are getting some
6:05 pm
extra pay coming to them from a very strong economic entity in the city and county of san francisco, the 49ers. >> clearly, the value of the tickets exceeds the state gift laws but san francisco and some other california cities created a loophole to avoid the ethical dilemma. sheer how it works in san francisco. because the city owns the land and stadium, it elected ton lease the three box locations and 22 stadium seats to the 49ers. by keeping control of those portions of the stadium, 66 total tickets, elected leaders can argue they are not receiving anything from the 49ers. >> i think that's a very aleejant view the supervisors are taking and it is something of an insult to the intelligence of people. well, san francisco owns the stadium. the people of san francisco own the stadium. if that's the case, then i should be able to go to the game free. >> now san francisco city attorney issued a ruling saying
6:06 pm
it is fork the elected leaders to accept the tickets. supervisors say they will accept the free tickets. this is interesting. supervisor david chu decided not to take the free tickets. he is going to the game and paying the city $214 per ticket. some san francisco lawmakers donated tickets to schools and nonprofits. but raj, supervisor chu said an abundance of precaution, he is paying up. >> any idea if the 49ers win, and they go to the super bowl, any super bowl tickets? >> not likely. we understand it is because can el stinl park and the property is owned by san francisco, that's how they get tickets. if that happens, well be watching. >> you can post some of your own ideas.

advance about what they would encounter. >> the protesters became a bit unruly when this man was arrested for allegedly steal a police baton. chance and corography, not the first time participating in the occupy movement. it is well meaning but not well organized. >> as far as actually like educating people, i think it is not really that effective. i don't think it has a unified message and i don't think people are really here about what what they know. >> now, the protesters left a short time ago for one last march. it is pretty much caps off a day that for many started long before the sun came up. live in san francisco, tracy grant, nbc bay area news. >> thanks so much.
