5:00 am
hey, good morning, everyone. thank you for joining us. happy friday, as well. i'm scott mcgrew in for sam brock. >> i'm laura garcia-cannon. let's check in with meteorologist kari hall. little break in the storms we're seeing at least for the morning. >> before the next round of rain moving in and looks as we start to see the scattered showers moving in late tonight into the start of the day tomorrow, it gets heavy just briefly. we're tracking a few light sprinkles across the bay area this morning. and some clouds moving in out ahead of the next storm system, but it is cold as you step out the door. check out the number in the south bay. it's 38 degrees and 41 degrees in the north bay. highs today reaching into the mid to upper 50s and, once again, some rain later today. i'll detail that and we'll look ahead to the weekend coming up in a few minutes. but let's see what's happening in the tri-valley with mike. >> you mentioned some clouds moving ahead of that storm. we're seeing them on this camera. not really a problem for visibility for the drivers but of the drivers having a tougher time. we normally she that part of the
5:01 am
area for 580 approaching but the cloud cover affecting our view just a tad bit. areas for potential fog, but by the time you get to the dublin interchange, the skies are clear and the try is clear throughout the bay. an easy friday light right now but looking at fog back here at stockton and maybe north of san rafael. keep that in mind creeping around the bay, but so far the speeds are still at the limits. back to you. >> thank you, mike. now, to a developing story a man shot dead in the streets of san jose. the hunt continues for the gunman responsible. this happened in east san jose near the los lagos golf course. kris sanchez live overnight details. kris? >> good morning to you, scott. we were there as the last cop cars pulled away from the scene there in south san jose and we know the work to find that gunman will continue today. if san jose police know who they're looking for, they're not making that public just yet, not asking for the public's help but
5:02 am
points specifically with one suspect. we know one car was towed away from the scene where that one person was shot dead just before 10:00 last night. all this hand as you said near the los lagos golf course. it's a neighborhood off capital expressway. how that car is connected to the crime is yet unclear. now, the adult man who was shot died at the scene. the person who pulled the trigger did get away and this is the second homicide of the year in this city. the first was on new year's day, but the good news for san jose police and the community is that the suspect in that case has been apprehended. there were 28 people murdered in the city of san jose last year. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> thank you, kris. word on san jose's first homicide of the year. police have this man in custody accused of murdering his father. investigators say maxim zhukov stabbed his father to death on
5:03 am
new year's day and then police say he left his father's body in a car in richmond. police don't know the motive and they're still hoping someone comes forward with more information. first heinous crimes and accusations of torture now murder charges expected. today the couple accused of killing two young children found in a storage unit will face a judge. authorities arrested 39-year-old tammy huntsman and her boyfriend 17 last month for allegedly abusing a 9-year-old girl. that investigation led officers to the bodies of 3 and 6 year olds in a storage unit in redding. the pair started abusing the children in salinas where huntsman's from. man arrested in sacramento on a terrorism charge is due in court today. the fbi identified him as 23-year-old al jaib.
5:04 am
he reported to have entered the u.s. in 2012 as a refugee from iraq. court documents say he traveled overseas to fight alongside terrorist organizations and also used social media to talk about fighting against the regime. a friend in sacramento who did not want to be identified defended him in an interview with nbc last night. >> maybe he would get angry at times, but he would never say like anything like related to terrorism or anything like that. >> federal agents also arrested a suspect in houston, they say, tried to provide material support to isis and lied on his citizenship application. a third arrest in milwaukee is set to be connected to the case, but not related to national security. happening today, national security officials will meet with silicon valley leaders in san jose. the attorney general, the director of the fbi and national intelligence director are all expected to meet representatives from apple and google and
5:05 am
facebook and microsoft, twitter and linkedin. here you see isis, the situation could get tense. the tech industry is still reeling from revelations. tapped silicon valley computers without warrant and they're wary and promoting products overseas. 5:05. happening now, powerball madness. $700 million up for grabs. it's all the largest jackpot ever. >> that could go up, right? the more people who play. >> could go up to $1 billion. >> amazing. "today in the bay" bob redell in milpitas and have you purchased a ticket yourself? >> not yet. i am not having up to me to throw away $2. but i will a little bit later just to join in all the fun because considering my odds are only 1 in $292 million and we imagine scott and laura that a lot of people coming to the chevron because this is considered a very lucky
5:06 am
retailer. you might recall this shop sold a powerball worth $626 million. did that man just put down $2 for a lottery ticket. no, looks like he's getting some snacks. but, anyways, we do expect that there would be a long line of people here once the sun comes up. you might realize or recall that this $700 million jackpot almost did not happen. someone in the bay area came close to winning wednesday's drawing but came up one number short. you need to get all six numbers. that ticket still worth $1.4 million. it was sold at perry's liquor store in union city. the store owners say they've seen an uptick in business since that winning ticket was announced and also enjoying a winfall for selling that winning ticket. >> i'll take 25 goes towards charity and 50% i'm not sure what i want to do. >> buy other things and become regular customers and buy a lot of oother things. if you don't have lottery, you
5:07 am
sdroe don't have the traffic. >> okay. so, the powerball right now is at $700 million. it's likely to dwrgrow by tomor night. the increased ticket sales makes it more likelily that there could be a win. it could grow to $1 billion if there is not a winner tomorrow night. you have better odds at quick pick. when people pick their numbers they're doing birth dates and they ignore the numbers 31 to 69. if you want to buy all winning combinations that would cost you $584 million. well, okay, i'll net $150 million. because you still have to pay for taxes. you also have keep in mind, someone else might have waning ticket and you'd be sharing with them. not a good idea. now, if it got up to $1.5 billion, maybe that's when it becomes a winning proposition.
5:08 am
$700 million. if it does go to $1 billion it isso interesting because they only have space for three dic s digits. 5:08 right now. dangerously high surf is crashing into bay area beaches. a live look at the pacific up here for you. a high surf advisory is actually in effect. it's rough, choppy water and big waves roll in. check out this video of the wipeout involving a world class professional surfer. wow, do you see him there? he took a huge wave yesterday at maverick near half moon bay and he fell and just got slammed by another massive wave. and he actually dislocated his shoulder but it's said to be okay. holds the world record for the largest wave ever surfed. but for most people, sounds like a good idea to stay out of the water. let's turn to meteorologist kari hall for how long these dangerous waves are expected to
5:09 am
stick around. >> for a few more hours. but i think that may be extended as this next storm system continues to approach. you don't want to do that. just standing out there on the rocks right there near the beach. that's not a good idea. as we go to the next couple of days, more active weather and this is the way it pans out as we go through the day. a few spotty showers through the morning and early afternoon. some of the heavier rain looks to arrive for the north bay. during the evening commute and then for the rest of the bay area, shortly therefore, as you head out for dinner, it may start to turn wet across the bay area. let's check in now with mike to see what's hap pg on the roadways. >> our san rafael camera shows us a clear view and clear drive right here. let's look at your maps and just north of there, we do have a smooth drive, as well. but not necessarily a clear view as you come down through petaluma and you may get a patch of fog here and there. fender bender down through vallejo and you're clear by the time you reach 780 and head down towards the carquinez bridge.
5:10 am
no slowing throughout much of the area and, again, maybe patchy fog throughout the tri-valley and watching for the chance of that and easy, clear drive for san jose. there you go, back to you. coming up, donald trump goes on the defense. the presidential candidate unleashes a firestorm. the backlash he faced inside an overly packed venue. ahead of the first republican

5:14 am
to run against sanders who trails hillary clinton on the democratic side. >> that would be a dream come true, but, actually, i must say, i have my mind set on hillary. i do have my mind set. >> reporter: former president bill clinton on the campaign trail for his wife refused to engage trump making an issue of his past transgressions. >> i have no interest in getting involved in their politics. >> i disagree with the republican frontrunner, mr. trump. you see, i think america is great. >> reporter: trump and senator john mccain question the eligibility of his closest competitor for president. >> it is no surprise everybody knows that john mccain is going to endorse marco rubio. >> reporter: the first test for who survives the attack, accusations and heckling will be february 1st. and the iowa caucus is first and then eight days later is the new

5:16 am
mr. obama on the issue. >> certainly a lot of people who have a fundamental distrust that you do not want to get, go further and further and further down this road. >> look. i mean, i'm only going to be here for another year. i don't know when would i have started on this enterprise? right? >> the president this week used his executive powers to tighten loopholes that allowed some gun buyers to avoid background checks. all republican candidates have vowed to reverse the measures if elected. not just friday, it is jobs friday. and the jobs report could help relieve the market today. >> we'll see. they took a tumble yesterday. let's turn to landon dowdy live at cnbc world headquarters. good morning. >> hey, there, laura and scott. took a tumble. a big one yesterday. cooler heads may prevail in the markets today. futures are higher this morning. stocks calm overnight and regulators doing away with the

highlighting here has low fog through the area and low clouds as we talked about. also for the north bay, anywhere north of san rafael. now to a developing story we're following at 5:30. a lot of questions surrounding the death of a man in east san jose. the deadly shooting happened there near the los lagos golf course around 9:30 last night. what do we know at this point, kris? >> we saw the last of the cars pull away from the crime scene this morning but the work to find that gunman who killed that man will continue today. san jose police, if they know exactly who they are looking for, they are not making that public just yet. but we know one car was towed away from that scene. this all happened at lone bluff way and pinto drive, a neighborhood off capital expressway in south san jose. as you mentioned, laura, near los lagos gfl course.
5:31 am
the adult man who was shot died at the scene. the person who pulled the trigger got away. this is the second homicide of the year. the first happened on new year's day and police do have a suspect in that killing. zhukhov was arrested without incident on suspicion of killing his father. then put his body in his father's car and left the car in richmond. in all, last year 28 people were killed in the city of san jose. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." and breaking news. december jobs report released just minutes ago. 292,000 jobs were added last month. we were looking for about 200, so, that's great news. the unemployment rate does stay at%. we were hoping for a tick downward. that would have very clearly shown all signs of the recession over. but 5%, not bad at all. >> not bad at all.
5:32 am
dramatic turn of events in san lae ndro. police say just before 8:00 last night a gunman robbed the gas station on the corner of washington and fargo avenues. people living nearby were told to stay in their homes as police searched the area. the gunman was not found in the search of the area was eventually called off. we have a follow up for you on the plane crash that killed a gilroy family. bad weather seems to be the cause of that crash. the ntsb released a preliminary report yesterday saying a storm had formed right in front of that plane before the plane went off the radar. the report says that aircraft broke apart in the air. jason and olga price and their three children all died december 21st when that plane crashed near bakersfield. they were flying from san jose to las vegas to attend a party. 5:32. an oakland truck driver recovering this morning after a near deadly delivery. jerry mattison was shot after
5:33 am
trying to deliver a generator to 0.co last month. he was waiting for the coliseum to open when someone tried to break in. mattison tried to fight back and that's when he was shot. >> there was no doubt that at the very beginning, i'm going to die right now. and i said, no, not this week. >> luckily the bullet went through the feet before it hit him. so, that's probably what really saved his life. >> police are still searching for the shooter. as for matson, he's recovering but says his 43-year truck driving career could be coming to an end. guilty of vand and hate crimes, a jury reached a verdict in the case of john. found guilty of 13 the words no more chinese spray painted at six locations. surveillance video helped track him down. 5:33. an alarming panic may have many immigrants keeping their kids out of school. it appears rumors are fueling
5:34 am
the fears of immigration raids on school sites. from our sister station telemundo 28 where parents try to ease some of their concerns. good morning, paola. >> good morning, laura. always concerned about being deported and now rumors about immigration have some undocumented families thinking about pulling their kids out of school. they haven't seen a spike in absences so far but they want to put the rumors to rest. that's why the school superintendent spoke to parents and say the school has the policy in place and never let immigrations and custom enforcement agents into school. they would have to go through a full review process. >> but if they were to show up at a school and request entrance, there's a protocol they have to follow. i ultimately have to give approval as a superintendent for that to happen. so, that's not going to happen.
5:35 am
>> the superintendent says if he were ever to grant immigration agents emergency access, he would notify parents first. these type of rumors, laura, are spreading nationwide after i.c.e. agents moved. for texas, north carolina and georgia, no raids in california and the message here today is clear. kids are in a safe school. so parents should send their kids to school. reporting live in san francisco, paola. san francisco celebrates ed lee's second term as mayor. the mayor will be inaugurated this morning in city hall in a ceremony starting at 11:30. governor brown expected to administer the oath but protesters plan to gather ahead of the inauguration on the steps of city hall and voice their anger over the deadly police shooting in the bay view last month. also taking the oath of
5:36 am
office, san francisco's newly eed sheriff. vicki hennessey will be sworn in as the 35th sheriff of san francisco and also thesty's first woman to be elected to that office. u.s. senator dianne feinstein will administer the oath. the sweari . super bowl l will cost the city of san francisco $4 million. most of the costs to transportation and police. now, the game is going to be held here in levi stadium in santa clara, but they'll host events all week long. the mayor says the cost is minor compared to the anticipated revenue from the thousands of tourists who will attend. new details and perhaps new hope for raiders fans that just want to keep the team here. here's a live look at the coliseum. will it stay the home of the raiders? new reports coming out of new york indicate that it is possible that speculation is growing and some owners may be hesitant about approving the raiders' move to los angeles. a move by the san diego chargers
5:37 am
and st. louis rams is more likely. a part of the reason, the rowdy raider element that doesn't play well. others believe a raiders move somewhere else may still be on the table and the team may end up in san antonio. a decision could come as soon as next week. >> you and i were talking about buying the raiders, but first we have to win $700 million in the powerball that is up for grabs this morning. >> that's right. those numbers are going up. it's the largest jackpot ever. "today in the bay" bob redell live in milpitas this morning. feeling lucky out there, bob? >> we'll see. they're not going to start selling tickets until 6:15. we already had a couple people come to the chevron trying to get their hands on one of the powerball tickets. you can see the jackpot right now. $700 million. and this location is popular with people who like to play the lottery because it was this chevron you might recall two
5:38 am
years ago that sold the winning $426 million powerball ticket. so, anyway, the jackpot right now at $700 million. the drawing, of course, is tomorrow night. and according to mathematicians, they say it's more likely that will be a winning ticket tomorrow night there is more interest and more ticket sales and what not and maybe a greater chance that numbers will be picked. if there isn't a winner, however, tomorrow night, then the jackpot could rose to $1 billion. that would be the first $1 billion jackpot ever anywhere in the world as far as we know. definitely in the united states. according to mathematicians. you have a better odds with quick pick, that's letting the computer choose because typically if you pick your own numbers, a lot of people picking their birth dates and you'll limit yourself to numbers one through 31 ignoring 32 to 69. you here to buy a lotto ticket? you thinking about it? >> the drawing is tomorrow
5:39 am
night. >> anyways, it only costs $2 and your odds are wonderful. they're 1 and 292 million. so, when i hear that, i just think throwing it all away here. so, we have $4. i'm going to go in and donate on a red bull or something else because i don't feel like blowing. >> too early for a slim jim. >> mike wants a moon pie, as well. >> it is fun to dream. but, you're right, the odds are not in your favor. >> but if you don't play, you can't win. >> we bought a ticket. >> we did a group thing here. maybe none of us will be here on monday morning. you're in on that, as well, aren't you? >> i am in on that and i won't be here on monday nonetheless. so, yeah, i'll be heading out this weekend. but as we take a look at the storm system moving in. it is starting to bring us some scattered light showers.
5:40 am
and it's well out ahead of the rain that will be here later tonight. you can see those clouds. this is the way it plays out on our futurecast. light rain by lunchtime in the far north bay. it makes it into the north bay during the evening commute and then the rest of the bay area just needs a couple spotty sprinkles. gets heavier as we go into tonight and you may hear the rain tapping on the roof as you sleep later on and it continues into the start of the day on saturday. after that, it moves out and we get ready for the next one. i'll show you when to expect another round of rain that is coming up in the microclimate forecast. let's check back in with mike to see how it looks as you head across the bay. >> a look at the bay bridge. surprise folks we have the metering lights on. that's not the surprise. look right there. i spotted this disabled vehicle with no lights on as you're approaching. this is in lane one, too. the second cash lane as you're heading towards the bridge itself. hov lanes and the other cash lanes moving well. but we're watching this. i'll call chp to make sure because i want to make sure they

5:45 am
traffic nightmare. maybe not all the time, but certainly sometimes. and the thing about medical emergencies is that they happen 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. so, i just don't see how people are going to be able to get to the hospital when they need to. >> the warriors released a statement reading in part the decision of our elected leaders bring the warriors home to san francisco will be upheld by the courts and this frivolous lawsuit. plans for a massive new development in san francisco appear to have hit a legal snag. last november san francisco supervisors approved planned for the 5m project. a massive development south of market at fifth and mission street. that would provide more than 600 new housing units. also create a new. community groups filed a lawsuit challenging the plan. city leaders fail to consider the full impact from additional traffic and ignored previous plans to convert the neighborhood.
