"today" show will continue coverage of the terror attack. an investigation into a side show in the east bay turned deadly when police shot a man they say was pointing what looked like a gun theft. "today in the bay" bob redell live in oakland this morning. officers eventually discovered the gun was not real. >> laura, oakland police have released an image of this replica gun. they posted this photo on twitter of what looks like a real black handgun, but it's not. they tell us a fake firearm that officers say was pointed at them last night promoting, prompting officers to open fire. now, this happened near 90th around 5:30. officers were supervising the towing of vehicles inlved in a
side show. opd said a man pointed the replica at them and several officers fired their weapons at them and they did cpr but the man did not survive his wounds. oakland police ended up towing and impounding five cars in the side show the night before. video posted on instagram shows crowds of people and chp said it started in oeklund with several cars entering the southbound direction of 880 in the wrong direction. the cars then began doing their spins and doughnuts on the freeway and another side show popped up near international and 55th and other and opd estimates that at least 200 vehicles were involved. reporting live here in oakland, bob redell "today in the bay." an alleged assault inside a north bay nightclub turned into a hit and run outside of that
club. a woman hit another patron with a beer bottle during an argument in santa rosa early sarturday morning. that confrontation continue under to the parking lot. witnesses told police that the suspect got into a minivan and ran over five people. jessica gary suabandoned that minivan and fled the scene. officers found her a couple blocks away where she was arrested and will now be arand in court tomorrow. the victims were all taken to the hospital with moderate to major injuries. it is 5:08 right now. let's get a look at that forecast for today. another cool start. bundle up before you head out the door. >> especially in the north bay. napa will start out during the morning commute at 38 degrees. morganhill 42 degrees. now, keep an eye on where you live. we'll go throughout the day as we see those temperatures slowly warming up, we'll be in the upper 50s all across the bay area by lunchtime. and into the lower 60s for a few spots, redwood city 59 degrees during the drive home and san jose at 58 degrees.
still gusty today, but winds relaxing tomorrow. and our temperatures starting to go up, so, i'll detail all of that. now, let's see how it looks at the bay bridge toll plaza with mike. >> we'll take a live look. little backup on either side of the bay either side of the fastrak lanes. the other sides have eased up. look at that, folks are moving over and you see the final lane open for business. back across the map, we're looking at a smooth drive across the bay, as well. as we look at the map, we'll see traffic moves smoothly over the span and pretty much any other bridge right now. pretty windy overnight. you may have some gusts catch you and be prepared and some wind related to a power line. the red line on the b.a.r.t. map and north berkeley and the trains were stopped for a short period of time and trains are back in service and a minor delay just over ten minutes for the red line there. the rest of them moving smoothly and the roadways no major incidents. it is 5:09.
coming up, military weapons vanish. the investigation now under way to find out what happened and who might be responsible. wall street has its first chance to react to the strikes. also, we'll take a look at the big hotel merger. all coming up in "business and tech." this is more than just a town. this is our home.
and small business saturday... is more than just a day. it's our day... to shop small at the places we love... with the people we love. for stuff we can't get anywhere else. and food that tastes like home. because the money we spend here... can help keep our town growing. on small business saturday, let's all shop small. for the neighborhood, the town, the home we love. on november 28th, shop small.
no indication the weapons are terrorism threats.ind of >> criminally looking into it, we have some evidence response, resources on scene as investigative capability. >> the fbi is not revealing what type or how many weapons were stolen. now to an investigative unit exclusive. the cases shocked our community. three different shootings this summer where the gun involved had been stolen, including the case who was killed on pier 14 in san francisco. tonight our investigative team uncovers just how many guns are stolen in the bay area and across the country. and for the first time, we dig up the number of guns stolen from local police officers that then end up in the hands of criminals. >> firearms are highly sought after and there are rings that we have worked and continue to work that specifically are looking for firearms. and specifically targeting houses or persons because they believe that they are firearms
owners. >> including law enforcement. >> including law enforcement, absolutely. >> our team one department that cannot account for 300 guns and we investigate what law enfor enforcement is doing to fix that problem. if you have a tip for our investigative unit, give us a call, 1-888-996-tips. or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. facebook says it will use its safety check in feature more often. >> scott, i know we saw one of our co-workers check in safe from paris. >> it pops up automatically if you're in the text of a huge emergency. are you okay after the big menlo park earthquake. this is just a for instance. now, you have two choices. i am okay or i'm not. by expanding this idea, it puts some pressure on facebook to decide what is and what is not a
disaster big enough to set off the alarm. i mean, it's not automated. someone in menlo park has to make that call. facebook came under criticism lebanon. there was a terror strike there, too, but the safety check was not used there and you will find less mention of it in the news. about half as many people died in beirut and perhaps that means there is some kind of criteria for our attention. see how wall street is reacting. the first time investigators can weigh in since the attacks. for that and the rest of the news before the bell. we turn to landon dowdy at cnbc world headquarters. good morning. >> hey, scott. that's exactly right. wall street will get the first chance to react to the paris attacks today, which happens after the close of trading on friday. and investors may move into so-called safe haven assets, such as treasury bonds and gold. wall street is already dealing with several headwinds including a climbing interest rate hike from the fed.
on friday the dow fell to 17245. and futures are higher this morning, scott, back over to you. >> all right, landon, thanks. a big buy out that landon is watching. marriott buying starwood hotels to create the biggest hotel chain in the world. starwood owns the regis, the sheraton chain and w and this is a huge buyout. but as we see, hotels having more of a some competition with air bnb this is something they can fight back. >> more starwood points. >> that's what i was thinking. your points. >> where are we going? >> merge them. okay, no vacation from colder temperatures, which is basically what we're seeing for a couple weeks, kari, that continues. >> that continues for today and a warm up as we head through the
rest of the weekend. we'll be back in the 70s and today it is starting out in the 30s and low 40s. a live look at the bay bridge and also breezy starting out the day. some of those bridges may have to grip a little bit tighter on the steering wheel as you head out for the morning commute. a look now at all the microclimates in the north bay. 47 in san francisco and the peninsula. a closer look at the north bay. we see some mid-40s in a few spots and no patchy frost this morning because the winds are still gusty. and we will still have those winds staying up throughout the day coming in from the north and northwest. up to 25, almost 30 miles an hour but compare that to yesterday behind that cold front and we have some gusts over 50 miles an hour. so, a little bit better today, but still pretty breezy. we see those winds all throughout the afternoon. up to close to 30 miles an hour. so, as we go hour by hour in livermore. you start out at 41 des at 6:00
and 8:00 at 44 and a slow warm up by lunchtime and 57 and still a jacket needed at lunchtime and then we hit the low 60s before dipping back into the 40s at midnight. as we go through the rest of the week, we will be at 63 degrees today. 64 degrees tomorrow and you see it goes up to close to 70 degrees. the average high of 65. we could be feeling some low 70s as we head closer to the the weekend. a look at that weekend forecast for all the microclimates as we go through the week, you can see that seven-day forecast at the bottom of the screen. no more rain on the way, but the winds may pick up as we head towards sunday as those temperatures dip another cold front moving in. but low 70s in the south bay by friday and the east bay at 70 degrees. north bay up to 75 degrees. well above average there. let's check in with mike to see how the morning commute is rolling. >> kari, first a good update through fremont. no incidents here. looking north where there was originally a truck fire reported
there. i'll show you the map and chp arrived. over on the shoulder and off of 680 northbound right there around auto mall or durham. no lanes blocked but i'll still track that. it is on a different freeway than originally reported. south bay an easy drive out of morgan hill and san martin or off of the 17 mountain and we're looking over towards the bay bridge, as well, with a slight build. the altamon into dublin. typical pattern and the live look shows you the bay bridge toll plaza and fastrak lanes moving very well. another ten, possibly 15 minutes until they turn the metering lights on. coming up next, exhaustic wildlife killed abroad for sport and shipped to the u.s. as trophies. >> there's really very little scrutiny of these animals coming in at all. >> our investigation into the-priced hobby known as trophy hunting. got a tip for nbc bay area
bonus cash on select vehicles, on top of ford friends and neighbors pricing. that doesn't happen every day. make black friday hassle-free with low prices ford cars, trucks and suvs. and get $750 dollars black friday bonus cash on select ford vehicles, on top of all other offers. it's an inside deal, now for everyone. hurry for a limited time, get $750 dollars black friday bonus cash on select vehicles, on top of all other low ford friends and neighbors offers. it all ends november 30th.
into cars and people in one of san francisco's most well-known tourist spots. investigators are trying to figure out what caused a driver of a bus to lose control hurting 20 people on friday. the bus, which was carrying 30 passengers sped down post street along union square hitting pedestrians, cars and a bicyclist along the way before coming to a crashing halt near stockton. the bus driver was also hurt and taken to the hospital. investigators will talk to him and 30 other witnesses to see what went wrong. now to an investigative unit exclusive. almost every week endangered and threatened animals are killed abroad and then shipped as trophies right here to the bay area. >> discovered that american hunters killed more than 70,000 animals abroad for sport every singleiary. now a former top government official raising serious questio questions over how the u.s. regulates that industry. >> we found that killing lions for sport is generally legal and
happens often. even though the species population is at historic lows. show in the very same month that minnesota hunter shot cecil the lion in zimbabwe 69 other lions in africa were also killed by american hunters, all for sport. and more every day. rare access to join federal inspectors as they sorted through shipments of animal trophies arriving into the port of san francisco. trophy hunting is big business, especially across africa where it's estimated to bring in $200 million each year. now, after reviewing thousands of pages of federal data, we discovered at least 1.2 million sport hunted trophies have been imported into the u.s. over the past 15 years. hunters and some wildlife biologists believe that trophy hunting is actually good for wildlife because much of that money is invested back in conservation. but critics say there is limited oversight and poachers routinely
use it to kill wildlife and sell it on the black market. now, you can watch our full story and check out tons of photos and interactive features on our website, nbcbayarea.com. guys, back t you. >> if you have a tip for our investigativet, give us a call at 888-996-tips. or send us an e-mail to nbcbayarea.com. what is black and white ask running all over. in philadelphia, it's two zebras that sent police scrambling. that is not a figment of your imagination. this happened when the animal decided to run off from the circus just prior to showtime yesterday afternoon. authorities hoofed it but within an hour they wrangled the pair of zebras. everyone, animals included, are doing just fine today. >> running away from the circus. >> pretty much. they didn't make it far. coming up, an international manhunt under way to nab the people responsible for the paris terrorist attacks. who authorities are now deeming
as the mastermind behind it all. and the connection all this has to a thued train attack. plus president obama talked strategy with vladimir putin in the wake of the paris terrorist attack. team coverage on that and much more for the search for the mastermind, when wae return. joining us. i'm sam brock.
let's start out with a look at the forecast here with kari. >> good morning, sam and laura. do we have a choice on what day we start on? let's start monday. temperatures in the low 40s and upper 40s for san francisco and east bay and peninsula and a look at those highs today in the mid-60s for the north bay while the rest of the bay area right around 60 degrees and we will have a little bit of a warm up as we go through the week. i'll detail that coming up. but let's check in now to see how the roads are moving with mike. >> we start on friday and everybody hates fridays now. happy monday, folks. we're looking at the bay bridge toll plaza. metering lights still not confirmed on. we have the conditions where they be. look, everyone is moving really well here. we'll show you that map and no major concern for the roadways because of that volume up the incline and the rest of your bay moves well and way out over here eastbound 580 towards the altamont and a crash in the center divide and a distraction for the westbound direction will slow you a bit as it builds over
towards dublin. no big surprises for that portion of the bay and looking at wind across the san mateo bridge and just hold on tight as you cross the bay. back to you. mike, thank you. we begin with the latest developments out of paris this morning. a city still on edge amid three days of official mourning. as the world continues to pay respect to the 129 victims. more details being revealed about the mastermind behind that massacre. we have team coverage, but, first, we go to "today in the bay" kris sanchez in the newsroom. a lot of progress to capture the people that authorities say are responsible for those attacks. >> as we speak thisern moi morn. looking live from our camera there this morning in that capital city of brussels. you can see law enforcement out in force. dressed in all black. their faces concealed with masks. now, this is, according to the government, a neighborhood known for religious extremism.
five men already arrested in that neighborhood with links to a vehicle seen near the attack at, the bataclan theater in paris. salah abdeslam police believe one of three brothers involved in this attack. now as that search continues, france is launching air strikes against syria. isis claimed it was behind the massacre in paris and that was an incredible claim of responsibility. this is a look at paris this morning. it is still on edge. it is the first of three days of official mourning. and the city is still protected by its military. still in shock this morning. these are pictures from another raid that happened overnight. the french interior minister reports that they conducted 168 raids in pairs and more than 100 people are now under house arrest. >> it's hell.
it's not even a war. it's hell. a nightmare. people were -- >> now, back to that live camera in belgium. we are learning that another belgian who is considered a mastermind was implicated in that foiled attack on a paris-bound train this summer. that was the attack that was stopped by those three friends from sacramento as the gunman boarded that train from brussels to paris. and he was taken down by those three friends. but, we're starting to see all the interconnectiveness with some of these terrorist attacks. sam? >> that is a haunted connection. thank you very much, kris. in bamma, a stand of defiance in the wake of the paris terrorist attacks. robert bedly is declaring that his state will not accept syrian refugees trying to relocate to the united states. in september, the white house announced a plan to take in at least 10,000 syrian refugees. so far none have actually entered the state of alabama. michigan also announced that
it's going to stand down on accepting syrian refugees, but it's not clear how either state is going to follow through on the state. as u.s. governors start speaking up following those attacks, president obama is talking strategy with world leaders oerb sverseas. >> he is trying to get more countries onboard in his fight against isis. >> exactly, sam and laura. at the g-20 summit where they were supposed to be talking about the economy and the overarching issue there is now terrorism and specifically how to deal with isis and the unrest in syria that isis is right in the middle of. president obama trying to garner support for more allies and more middle eastern countries to do the work on the ground while we continue the air strikes. in fact, his deputy national security director has said we need to intensify those efforts as a result of what happened last friday in paris. the other big thing coming out of the g-20 is president obama sitting down with vladimir
putin, the leader of russia. they had big differences on how to deal with syria. putin supports syria's government and the united states does not. when it comes to isi, they think to be on the same page. no one isis in control and russia with that downed jet in egypt has a reason to oppose and the president and putin sat down for over 30 minutes to talk about the syrian situation. hopefully and possibly to come to some sort of agreement. russia has been flying jets there and now france has been flying their jets there, as well. hitting isis targets. the united states hoping to coordinate an effort to get rid of isis in that country. >> thank you very much, tracie potts. in the meantime, back in paris itself, tourist sites are back open this morning. asdants tried to move forward since the tragedy. this is a makeshift memorial there. just one of many seen popping up across the globe and here at
