they found a woman who had been shot in the upper part of her body. the responding officers tried cpr to keep her alive. unfortunately she died at the scene. so again they do have a person of interest in custody. police are not saying right now is what led up to this shooting, what motive was and whether it was a targeted attack or a random killing. they did say they might be releasing some more information later this morning. again, a woman shot and killed just off market on the 100 block of mason street. one person of interest in custody. reporting live here in san francisco, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> thank you, bob. 6:02. new details now. police in berkeley reopened a couple roads that were closed overnight after a shooting investigation. happened close to malcolm x elementary school near russell and california streets. they say someone fired several shots about 8:30 last night. we've not been told the victim's condition this morning. for a while people were told to
stay inside while police searched for a suspect. the order has since been lifted. new details on a high profile homicide in the north bay. do you recognize these people? man and woman on camera. investigators say they may know something about the death of a man shot while walking his dog on a popular hiking trial. >> stephanie chuang live with more this morning. >> reporter: investigators hoping that people will see the footage in this. no more crime scene on the trail but you see the notice posted by the marin county sheriff's office asking for people's help in the search of three persons of interest because they were around here monday night when someone shot the hiker to death. surveillance video from a nearby convenience store in fairfax shows two of the three persons of interest. a man wearing a white hat with what appears to be a california bear on it. also a woman who appears to have dreadlocks. not shown, a third person of interest described as a man wearing a brightly colored t-shirt. the victim, 67-year-old steve
carter, a well known workshop instructor that came with marin county with his wife staying with friends because his wife has been getting breast cancer treatment in the area. search and rescue crews scoured the area in the open space looking for more evidence yesterday. it's a scene that stunned regular hikers. >> i grew up in the area. i remember the trailside killer and that period where it was sort of frightening to go out in the woods and that was sort of the same feeling i had. >> reporter: investigators say the killer or killers likely stole the victim's car, a 2003 silver volkswagen jetta hatchback with california plate of 6ppg662. it's tragic all around. the victim was walking his dog at the time and he was found on the trail holding the leash to his dog also shot and at last
check in critical condition. live in fairfax, stephanie chuang, "today in the bay." >> thank you very much. a close call and a miscalculation by one north bay homeowner forcing neighbors to have to evacuate their homes. firefighters say a man started cutting down a 100-foot pine tree on marin drive in mill valley after 6:00 last night. before it came all of the way down, he realized something. the tree was headed in the wrong direction right toward power lines. once the power was cut, crews managed to redirect the tree and bring it down safely. neighbors only returned to their homes late last night. a cloud of dust leading to a cloud of controversy on the peninsula. a pile of junk dumped in san carlos have some people who live nearby saying it's making them sick. >> "today in the bay's" kris sanchez is live in san carlos. neighbors want to know what is under that tarp. where does it come from. you said samtrans owns this land. >> reporter: they say they leased this to be a pumpkin patch and that all of this debris that was dumped here was
dumped here illegally. again, that's according to samtrans. we know it's construction debris and the head of the east san carlos neighborhood association says the pile really did go from eyesore to health concern on saturday. that's the day the winds kicked up and started blowing dust into the neighborhood. since then some of the people who live here tell us they've been coughing and wheezing and the head of the neighborhood association tells us he has a tremor in his hand that wasn't there before. >> i saw basically what i felt was a brown plume of dust that was coming into our neighborhood. the sun was blotted out. the air smelled terrible. we've been told the materials been tested by an outside agency, but we haven't gotten results back of what's in the land yet. >> reporter: again, the head of the neighborhood association says that he has been in contact with the city. the city has not responded to our calls yet. the vice mayor did tell san
mateo general that there is no indication that the waste is dangerous. no dump is going to accept this into a landfill until they know what it is and the tests are outstanding. kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> thank you. 6:07. one of the worst fires in state history is now 100% contained. firefighters fully surrounded the valley fire yesterday. they are still out there mopping up hot spots in the containment zone. that fire burned more than 76,000 acres in lake sonoma and napa counties. four people were killed and nearly 2,000 structures destroyed. more than 1,200 of those were homes. devastating. >> happy to close that chapter of recent history and start a new one. we're starting a brand new day. a very similar weather story. let's check in with meteorologist kari hall. >> not much different from yesterday. we do see the clouds this
morning across most of the bay area and now it's about average with temperatures in the lower 60s as we start out the day and also for those highs this afternoon. look for a high of 79 degrees in san jose. redwood city, 78 degrees. embarcadero at 69 degrees. hayward, 76 degrees. 85 degrees in dublin. with these companitemperatures e not too bad, it warms up closer to the weekend. i'll show you those numbers in ten minutes. let's check in now with mike getting a look at the bay area commute. >> we'll show folks here the bay bridge where we do have westbound. look at that crystal clear view. a nice smooth flow. volume builds a bit here. no problems on the span. nice flow of traffic. looking at oakland. coliseum, slowdown. northbound to bay bridge toll plaza metering lights are on. southbound is smooth right here at 98. the map will show you south of there around marina boulevard there's a crash reported and
there may still be vehicles in lanes. that's right why things are starting to slow down heading down into san leandro. moving the map up, we see slowing toward the san mateo bridge and reports of that crash and maybe a couple lanes blocked or affected by crews that arrived to take care of that crash shy of the toll plaza holding folks up from the peninsula. dumbarton moves slowly and so does the traffic build approaching highway 84. northbound route through san jose, 101 and 87 holding with their build. rest seeing traffic northbound through san jose. that's a typical pattern. back to you. >> keeping with the transportation trend, today we should find out where the high-speed rail project stands. we do know the project will blend high-speed trains with caltrain from san francisco to san jose. the $68 billion high-speed rail line is under construction. a hot button issue.
massive fire burning at an historic church in chicago. this is happening at the shrine of christ king catholic church. it's on the city's south side. crews actually shut down surrounding streets while they battle flames and now they deal with a lot of smoke. you can see the flames deep inside that building. so far no word on any injuries or if anyone was inside the church. the cause is still under investigation. new details this morning on that deadly hospital bombing in afghanistan. doctors without borders is calling for an independent fact finding mission into an air strike that killed 22 people inside the hospital. it would be the first time such a fact finding mission would be launched under the rules of the geneva conventions. this morning the president of doctors without borders told reporters the bombing was not just an attack on the hospital but on the conventions as well. the geneva convention establishes rules of war
throughout the community. apparently the fbi has foiled a plot four times over the past five years. an investigation finds gangs with russian ties are linked to a thriving black market in nuclear materials and hotbed for those deals in the tiny eastern european country which borders the ukraine. definitive turnaround on a troubling statistic that caused concerns in marin county for years. breast cancer rates are at a new low there. the latest numbers from cancer prevention institute found marin recorded 130 breast cancer cases for every 100,000 women in 2012. that figure is 31% lower than just 14 years ago. in 2001 there were 188 cases. at that time, those were highest race a rates anywhere in california. researchers cite a change in
behavior as a possible explanation. >> in 2003 there were published results that haormone therapy ws dangerous and we saw breast cancer rates drop rapidly in marin county and other parts of the country. >> cancer prevention institute has been tracking breast cancer rates since 1988. as you may be aware, october is breast cancer awareness month. california made a bold move to close the pay gap between men and women. yesterday governor brown signed the fair pay act in richmond. american women worked in factories and shipyards during world war ii. the new law is one of the toughest pay equity laws in the country. >> this is a big day. important. the inequities that plagued our state and have burdened women forever are slowly being resolved. >> starting january 1 of the, employers must prove a man's
higher pay is based on factors other than gender. it also protects workers from discrimination and retaliation if they ask how much other people earn. the law also makes it easier for workers to sue. the new iphones are hot literally. there are a lot of complaints on twitter that the home button can become burning hot. that's not all. the iphone 6 randomly turns off. no word on what's causing that glitch or whether apple is doing anything about it. apple sold 13 million of the latest iphones during the opening weekend last month. >> we can't blame russia for the buttons but russia is hot under the collar about google's android operating system. >> scott mcgrew, russia says no more android phones in that country. >> not unless google stops making the phone manufacturers include google software as defaults on the phone. google gives away the android software. it's free to companies like samsung. that's the whole idea. we'll give you the operating
system but you have to use google maps and what not. so russia says knock it off. android phones are huge. three out of every four sma smartphones are android. the new york attorney general will investigate fan duel and draft kings after it was revealed that employees used inside information to win money. the sort of information average fans wouldn't have. it's not cheating or money loss that hurts the companies, it's the new interest in regulating them. a rare ipo to tell you about as we look at tuesday's close of the nyse. today the ceo of pure storage out of mountain view will ring the bell as part of that company's first day of trading. we do expect him to wear a suit. the stock price last night at $17 a share. only 19 companies have gone
public this year. fitbit went public at 20. trading well at 36. shopify doubled. those are exceptions. etsy is a disaster. godaddy trading low as well. i want to add stock market in there. now, take a look at this. note how often the tech companies chose the nyse instead of the nasdaq. the nasdaq is supposed to be the tech market. lately it's been nyse. twitter, linkedin, biggest ipos have been nyse why the nasdaq has been in full-court press to lure more tech business opening a center in san francisco to attract those new startups. they didn't get pure storage though. they'll ring the bell on nyse in 15 minutes. we'll watch for that first trade. a rare ipo.
only 19 tech ipos so far this year. >> a tug of war going on right now over where those tech companies do ipo. >> hopefully home court advantage for nasdaq in san francisco. >> interesting where those numbers are headed. thanks a lot. doctors right now calling this next story a miracle. >> it really is. a little boy expected to make a full recovery after the force from a car crash actually caused his head to internalaly detach from his neck. he'll spend the next two months wearing that brace you see right there known as a halo. he was with his mom and sister when their car crashed head-on into another car at 70 miles an hour. jackson was air lifted to the hospital where surgeons spent six hours using part of his rib and wire to reattach his head to his spine. surgeons say most people would never survive this type of injury and if they do, they typically would never move or even breathe again. isn't it amazing? look at that.
>> visualize how that would be possible. a ground breaking procedure. >> getting him to walk again. >> miracles of medicine. >> the miracles of another day and more beautiful weather for now. it will heat up later in the week. >> it will heat up this week. maybe one more beach day you'll want to squeeze in. why not? enjoy this as we take a live look at san jose. we do see a few clouds rolling by overhead. into the afternoon it will be clearing up. a look at the seven-day forecast is now up at the bottom of the screen. pick out where you live. that's what you can expect.
