5:04 am
police are looking for right now. a late, 2000, dark toyota camera. police say in that video they say you can see three men jumping into that car, speeding away. police say they are three asian men. the fight leading up to the stabbing also caught on surveillance as you mentioned, laura. you can see it on the right-hand side of your screen. you can't see the moment of the stabbing itself or the argument that led up to it. it would seem that stone is outnumbered. this happened just two months after stone and two friends charged an armed man on a train in paris stopping a terror plot. that would be terrorists stabbed stone with a box cutter and he nearly lost his thumb. he and two friends were awarded france's highest honor and were met at home with a lot of accolades. a hometown parade and even an invitation to the white house. this sacramento cab driver says that he saw last night's fight  and even offered to take stone to the hospital, not knowing who he was at the time.

matt chapman of philadelphia, who you're looking at right now who will be inside his single engine extra lx. he made it clear he's not a stunt pilot but aerobatic. >> you have torque rolls and propeller backwards and shoulder rolls where the airplane is tumbling, literally tail over nose. looks very out of control, but it's actually not. >> so, you're going to have the air show today, tomorrow, sunday. starting at 12:30. blues go on at 3:00 and be over fishermen's wharf. if you haven't seen it before, it's quite a show. the tour for the ships. they resume tomorrow and they run through monday. 9:00 to 4:00 each day. reporting live here in san francisco, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> the weather cooperates for
5:09 am
this weekend. you know, cloudy skies and the view of the blue angels. what do you think, kari? >> we won't have any of that. the thin, high clouds that are wispy and still allow that sunshine in. that's what we'll see this weekend also giving us some spectacular sunsets. oakland 55 and san francisco 58 degrees. here's a look at all the microclimates. look at how much warmer it will be today over yesterday. up to 89 degrees in san jose. 86 degrees in palo alto and you'll have a wide range in temperatures in san francisco and in the north bay, 92 degrees in santa rosa, brentwood 93 and san ramon today up to 94 degrees. we're hitting the 90s today and most likely tomorrow. i'll show you that coming up in a few minutes and let's check in with mike to see if there is any slow down with the commute. >> no real slowing. i'll warn you about the peninsula in one second. this one might be more significant. south bay two crashes south 85

at blossom hill and car went off the road into a ditch. no major injuries and as well as south 880 as a tow truck arrives and still have that slow lane blocked. that's it for the south bay. light flow of traffic. peninsula north 101 coming up towards peninsula avenue and cause some slowing. just happened and approaching the bay bridge a smooth drive out of the maze. and the look across the span and one deck and two decks. back over to you. >> thank you, mike. they call it house of cards for a reason. coming up, one republican congressman calling it uncertainty on top of uncertainty. the latest on the political shakeup in washington. some really tough words out of elan musk this morning. surprising stuff. we'll tell you about it in business and tech. president obama is heading to the scene of this month's deadly shooting in rosburg, oregon. many there don't want him to come because they oppose his call for stricter gun control. why the white house says they have nothing to fear.
5:11 am
yeah, we know that feeling. you're so bloated you've started wearing sweatpants ...everywhere. when it finally happens, it's always the worst possible time. and when you're finished, you realize you've been in there for a very, very long time. being irregular is the worst. get more fiber with chocolatey, chewy fiber one bars. feeling good can taste great.
5:12 am
5:13 am
he already said he hopes this is the last time during his presidency he'll have to do this. president obama traveling to rosbu rosburg, oregon, to meet with families of victims of the latest mass shooting. all the meetings will be private but the administration vowed not to talk about gun control. >> tracie potts live in washington this morning. tracie? >> good morning. the president says, the white house says that the president is not going to polites is this and he wants to meet privately with
5:14 am
the families as he did in aurora, newtown and charleston. but there is some criticism of the president touching down later today in oregon. he's only going to be on the ground for about three hours meeting with some of the families. the white house is not identified which families agreed to meet with the president. we do know that some publicly have said, at least one have said that they will not. a local newspaper publisher said the president is not welcomed there because he is politicizing this as a gun control issue. the white house is not saying that the president will not address that today. the mayor there says that he welcomes the president. that it brings sympathy and support of the entire nation. ben carson, who says if he was president, he would not go, is also accusing the president of politicizing this although his own comments about gun control and about this particular shooting in oregon had been criticized saying that i wouldn't just stand there. some took that as blaming the
5:15 am
victim. so, the president takes off here shortly and heads to the west coast where he was already headed, by the way, because play golf out there and come back on monday. >> he's coming to the bay area. thank you very much, tracie. happening today after visiting oregon, president obama is flying to the san francisco bay area to help raise some money for his fellow democrats. the president will arrive at sfo tonight and then he'll attend a roundtable democratic national committee discussion at a private home in san francisco. then on saturday, president obama and kanye west will team up at the warfield theater for an afternoon concert. you can go, but it is going to cost you. 250 bucks but a personal vip experience with president obama, well, that will set you back $10,000. all that money goes to the dnc. in the meantime, republicans in congress are scrambling this morning to figure out who will be in charge when speaker john boehner leaves office. yesterday congressman kevin mccarthy shocked everyone when he announced he was dropping out
5:16 am
of the race for house speaker. mccarthy said he wanted to do what was best for a divided party. >> if we're going to unite and be strong, we need a new face to help do that. >> budget share paul ryan is said to be john boehner's favorite but ryan is not interested in the job. silicon valley is a buzz this morning over a hot new device. this time hollywood is where the source of the buzz is coming from. the long-awaited biopic "steve jobs." got great advance buzz but also shrouded in controversy for what some are calling false truths about jobs. whatever the case, it's getting high marks on the rotten tomatoes website. generally speaking, high-tech ceos try to keep it nice. >> musk is an intense guy, guys. he gets e-mailed answered while
5:17 am
kids play and intense and generally speaking polite in public. he was interviewed in a german newspaper about apple's effort to build their own electric car and apple was luring away some of tesla's important engineers to build it. he responded, "important engineers? they have hired people we've fired and we always jokingly call apple the tesla graveyard. you don't make it at tesla, you go and work at apple. i'm not kidding." that's not nice. landon dowkdy live at cnbc world headquarters. >> hey, there, scott. good morning to you. stocks look to extend their winning ways today. futures pointing to a flat to slightly higher open. the dow closing above 17,000 for the first time in almost two months. investors reacting to the last minute of the fed meeting officials were hesitant to raise
5:18 am
rates on the global economy and import prices and wholesale trade. the dow rising to 17051. the nasdaq up 20 to 4811. scott, back over to you. >> landon, thank you. the faa is working on new technology that would allow drones near airports. it's been a big week, really, for drones. a record fine against the drone company. hearings on the hill. a drone ban in san francisco this weekend for fleet week. we're going to talk to a drone expert. how much of an expert. she was president obama's personal adviser on drone policy when drones was invented. he sent her to the justice department to create drone rules like how close can i get to my neighbor's house? >> up to 83 feet above my backyard is my air space. it's the immediate reaches of the land. it's unclear above 83 feet and below 400 feet. so, the case law is not entirely on the subject. something that is currently
5:19 am
getting a lot of talk. >> if you want a drone, if you have a drone, you really should be watching because, i mean, the person from the justice department, she's no longer at the justice department has the rules for you. so, you can point to them and say, see, the person who made the rules. >> not only that, but if you have neighbors who have drones. >> exactly. >> in fact, everybody should tune in and watch after "meet the press" on sunday. >> at? >> 9:00 a.m. >> promotion manager. thank you, scott. all right. now, let's tune in to kari hall right here at 5:19. >> radio broadcaster. >> i love it. i like the introduction. and it will be a warm weekend. so, we're getting ready for that and a lot of summer-like heat across the bay area as we go through fleet week and all the outdoor festivals going on and pumpkin patches going on and, yeah, in the 90s out there. as we look at the current temperatures. 60 degrees in concord and san
5:20 am
jose and sunnyvale and napa now at 51 degrees and heading into the afternoon, we start out with the light wind. the wind starts to pick up and here we are at 1:00. the wind is coming in more from the northwest. we don't have a strong onshore flow and when we get that breeze coming straight over the land, the inland areas really heat up. that's what we're expecting today and it comes in at about 10 or 15 miles an hour for the afternoon. expect a light wind today. a lot of sunshine and some sizzling temperatures in some spots like gilroy. up to 96 degrees. half moon bay, not too bad. 78 degrees. burnal heights reaching up 25080 degrees but a wide range in temperatures just in san francisco. 90 degrees in napa and brentwood 93 degrees. san ramon today topping out at 94 degrees. we've been talking about it quite a bit. it's fleet week and it will be up to 76 degrees at 11:00 this morning and the parade of ships
5:21 am
going on tomorrow as well as saend sunday. the air show looking at sunshine and even into columbus day, temperatures going back up justilatal bit and heading into next week. we stay dry and our temperatures will be pretty warm. let's check in now with mike and what are you looking at now? >> i am looking at oakland because there is some slowing. just fine for that overnight road crew. it's west 580. now, farther north towards the maze where we see the slowing. and then stretch from lake shore over towards the toll plaza. we're tracking that right now and an earlier crash may leave some guard rail repair work and a tow truck finally i believe took the car from the roadway shoulder over there for westbound 24. peninsula northbound 101. we don't see any slowing but a report of a crash in the middle lanes and chp yet to give us more information. the rest of your bay moves smoothly. an easy, light drive. back to you. >> mike, thank you. coming up next, bill cosby has been shielded so far from a courtroom due to statute of
5:22 am
limitation on those alleged crimes. that changes today. a new study that supports the theory that sexual orientation is genetic.
5:23 am
5:24 am
it is 5:24. bill cosby is expected to return to court today for a lawsuit brought by one of dozens of women who claim he sexually assaulted them. the woman says cosbyaus cosby a
5:25 am
her when she was just 15 years old. a judge in los angeles ruled that both cosby and his accuser must be interviewed underoath. cosby has never been charged with a crime. tonight, 27 of cosby's accusers will tell their stories in a primetime television special. more than 50 women have accused cosby of sexual assault. the special will air during nbc's "dateline" tonight at 10:00. could sexual orientation be genetic. there is a link. scientists at ucla led the study which found evidence of molec k ykular markers that could determine whether a person is gay or straight. 47 sets of male twins where one or both of the twins were gay. scientists found that specific genetic patterns in those that were gay, they found existence of them. but more research is needed and the study is too small to establish a clear link. police tracked him all the way to portland for the death of a north bay hiker, but something
5:26 am
new found in the possession of three homicide suspects that brings that case back to the bay area. this time, to san francisco. and spencer stone survived a near deadly encounter with a terrorist in europe, only to get stabbed in a bar brawl on the streets of sacramento. his road to recovery, next. joining us. i'm sam brock.

5:30 am
crews heading towards the bay bridge. we do have the right lanes with the backup for those cash payers and everywhere else is moving smoothly, but the build has started at the toll plaza. back to you. breaking news, mike, thank you. violence, again, on campus. police have one person in custody following another deadly shooting. this one happened just before 1:30 this morning in the parking lot outside of a dorm at northern arizona university in flagstaff. one person was killed. three others injured. right now police are not saying what led up to the shooting or if the victims are students. just minutes ago, arizona senator john mccain released a statement saying his thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. stay with us as this story will continue to develop throughout the morning. another update for you in 30 minutes and always get updates on and continue updating our facebook and twitter accounts. another developing story, a new twist involving two bay area homicides. three people accused of the killing of the contra instructor
5:31 am
on a fairfax hiking trail, they're now linked to another homicide of a young girl in golden gate park. >> what is the crucial piece of evidence, "today in the bay" chuck coppola and how did they make this additional connection? >> they found evidence that they were arresting in portland, oregon. 23-year-old audrey carey of quebec was backpacking through the u.s. and recently attended a bluegrass festival in san francisco. her body was found saturday by a passerby on the far west end of golden gate park. the link is that personal belongings of that canadian tourist was killed had been found among the three suspects arrested in portland. pathology reports determined that carey died from gunshot wounds and may be connected to the murder of carter on monday.
5:32 am
and investigators say they believe they also found the gun used to kill carter. >> the gun that was recovered in the arrest yesterday was one, one similar to that that that we were looking for. specifically as to caliber. >> the three people drove carter's jetta station wagon to portland where they were arrested wednesday. identified as sean michael angold and 18-year-old lila scott allgood and morrison haze lampley. all three are expected to be ext extradited back to the bay area. i'm chuck coppola, "today in the bay." the man accused of killing a h h hayward police officer is expected to enter a plea in court today. back in july, investigators say estrada shot lunger during a traffic stop in hayward. police found blood and bullet casings in estrada's trunk after the shooting. his family insists he is
5:33 am
innocent. dozens of cameras are going up on streets in palo alto tracking people as they go by. the city council approved the n installation of security cameras. how many people are using certain routes. the goal of the city is to improve bike lanes and pedestrian paths to get more people out of their cars. >> it's a counter. and taking information off the top of your head as it goes this way on a bike or walking. and it kind of converts that image into a blue dot going that way or a blue dot going that way. >> the low resolution cameras won't be able to identify anyone specifically in the city's contract with the camera vendors states that none of the images collected can be shared or stor stored. one of the three sacramento friends who stopped the suspected terrorist on a paris-bound train this summer is in serious condition in the hospital. spencer stone was stabbed outside a sacramento bar after a
5:34 am
brawl on the street. >> it looked like a gang of men that were attacking him. this is a guy that stopped a terrorist attack. >> that's why people are calling this attack ironic. he survived a terrorist attack to come home and be involved in something so pedestrian as a bar fight. spencer stone's stabbing was not related to terror nor to his here oism in france, but instead to a nightclub fight that picked up out on the street. this video shows an older toyota camry, 2009 to 2012 or so that the attackers got away in, police say. two to three men, asian men jumping into that car and that is the get away car. now, the fight leading up to the stabbing also caught on surveillance upper right-hand side of your screen. when you can't see the moment of the stabbing, thankfully, nor the argument that led to it, it would seem that stone was outnumbered. this all happened two months after stone and two friends charged a man armed with an
5:35 am
ak-47 on that train near paris. stopping a terror plot there. they would be terrorist stabbed stone with a box cutter. he nearly lost his thumb in that attack. he and his two friend were awarded france's highest honor and met at home with a parade and even an invitation to the white house. this man is a cab driver was in the area in sacramento at the time. he saw the whole fight and even offered to take stone to the hospital, not knowing who he was at the time. >> three guys, you know, they saw one guy. i could say three, actually three. that guy he tried to protect himself. you know, he tried. but, he fight with this guy. >> now stone is in serious condition this morning. he's in the intensive care unit but expected to survive those three stab wounds to his torso. his friend and fellow train hero "spencer is one tough guy and
5:36 am
only he could have done something like that and lived, yet again." the response on social media was very fast. first people were shocked that it happened and then hopeful for stone's recovery. the family is asking for privacy, but he has spoken out before. so, likely when he is feeling a little bit better we'll hear his side of the story. laura? >> thank you very much. 5:36 right now. families go after a bay area school where their daughter was allegedly molested. this lunchtime aide is accused of attacking the 8-year-old on campus. the family made a claim yesterday against spark charter school saying on the chow should have never been left alone with any child. the family also wants the santa clara county of education pay up saying the district failed to pay all it was supposed to do to oversee the charter school, including running background checks on employees. changes are coming to california senior care regulations thanks in part to what was once a sad story here in the bay area. you may recall the case in 2013, the owner and most of the staff at a castro valley senior
5:37 am
facility adrptly abandoned its patients. just a cook and janitor stayed behind to help. yesterday governor brown signed a bill inspired by that case. standard licensing for any potential operators. full disclosure of prior ownership of facilities anywhere in u.s. and proper vetting by the state of california. all californians now have the right to drive. as in drying their laundry using clothes lines. not everyone had that privilege before, especially in neighborhoods where property managers and homeowner associations call line drying an eye sore and restricted the practice. yesterday governor brown signed a bill lawing such bans and allowing everyone that wants to let it all hang out in their backyard and on their balconies. new this morning the nobel peace prize awarded to a group you've never heard of. >> the democracy group credited with paving a new political path
5:38 am
in the nation of tunisia. also considered a key contributor to the first arab spring movement. recently went through a peaceful resolution that started in 2011, driven by a wave of pluralism. now that sound is unmistakable to many. that deafening roar if you're in san francisco today, you'll probably hear it. yesterday the blue angels gave us a glimpse of what's to come for the big fleet week air shows. starts today. blue angels flying throughout the weekend, but today is another favorite. the parade of ships. >> bob redell with a bit of a preview for us. good morning, bob. >> laura and sam, soon the "uss sommerset" which has been parked here for a number of days will be joined by several other vessels. you'll be able to tour these vessels. 684 feet long. it's the san anton class amphibious dock ship.

5:40 am
it's very tight. >> you can't burp, you can't hiccup and you can't do anything. >> no sneezing. >> there's a reason why those are some of the best pilots in the world to be able to pull off those maneuvers. again, the blue angels take to the sky today, tomorrow, sunday at 3:00 with the air show itself starting at 12:30. the parade of ships 11:00 this morning and then you'll be able to do ship tours 9:00 to 4:00, saturday, sunday and monday here at pier 32 and other piers throughout the city. reporting live, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> bob is so not dressed appropriately for this event. where is your air suit? >> he's flown with the blue angels before. a few times. >> got a nose for the dangerous. let's get a nose for what's coming this weekend. >> great out there for fleet week. we'll have a lot of sunshine and 76 degrees at 11:00 this morning. and we'll have a wide range in temperatures. so, if you travel a short distance, you'll feel it warming up if you're close to the ocean, it will be cooler.
5:41 am
73 degrees tomorrow with the air show going on and also on sunday more of the same weather. a lot of sunshine and also heading into columbus day. so, beautiful weather as we head into fleet weekend. let's check in now with mike to see what's happening out there at the toll plaza. >> yeah, kari, we have lanes off of the 880 overcrossing backing up for the cash payers. let me show you why, the map shows you this big backup westbound coming up towards the 580/80 maze and overnight paving work blocking your two left lanes. should be cleared by 6:00, but late in the pickup and pavement continues to cure over there and that is why there is a big slow down. upper east shore freeway right around san pab low and a crash there involving one motorcycle and now three other vehicles are on the shoulder and one lane is blocked and no major injuries and that's a lot of slowing. the rest of your bay, live camera for the south bay. no real problems, but we do have a warning story road off ramp is closed for 101. a street fair on sunday in the
