5:01 am
>> not a lot around the bay and i'll focus on this. the flashing lights just past the toll plaza and moved everything out of the lanes and just off of the roadways. if you are off to one of your left lanes as you pass through the toll plaza, you'll see debris and disabled vehicle. no problem here. we'll show you reverse angle for the bay bridge toll plaza. a bit of a backup there and not major concern. we'll go over to dublin to look at 580 where we see the only slowing on our sensors. over here you're pretty much at the speed limit but i'll show you the altamont coming up. breaking overnight, ten people are dead and 15 others hurt after an apparent suicide bombing in istanbul. the blast happened a major tourist attraction in turkey's most popular city. turkey's president said both turks and foreigners are among the dead. he also says the suicide bomber has links to syria. kris sanchez tracking all the latest details on the story. she'll bring us an update in our

5:03 am
seat head rest. >> none of the occupants were hit, especially the three children seated in the back seat. they should count their blessings tonight because it was pretty miraculous. >> the family was just in the wrong place at the wrong time getting hit by a stray bullet and a female teenager and a man in his 20s appear to be the targets. they are both expected to survive, but, again, chp investigators do motbelieve these were random shootings. in fact, a series of now five. we'll have more on that investigation of the series of shootings coming up in about half an hour. live here at the chp oakland office, stephanie chuang, "today in the bay." 5:03. happening today the man accused in san jose's first homicide of the year will be in court. maxim zhukov stabbed his dad on new year's day and then left his father's body in a car in richmond. police have yet to release a
5:04 am
motive. investigators say the suspicion of foul play. the reason they're reopening a mysterious cold case of a 14-year-old boy who disappeared decades ago. daniel mayler was last seen leaving his house on knightinggale place in fremont after an argument with his father. but a recent review of the case turned up inconsistent statements by some family members and last month it led to a search warrant for the house, which included digging up the backyard. nbc bay area spoked with the neighbors of the boy when he lived there. >> i am very surprised that the family is being investigated. we assumed, like everybody else in the community, that young danny just ran away. >> fremont police are not saying what, if anything, they found during their search of the house and backyard. now, they are putting out this agent picture of what daniel may
5:05 am
look like today and asking anyone with any information about his disappearance to please contact fremont police. it is 5:04. a woman who helped spark a new california law to help rape victims is now taking legal action against the city where she claims she was once raped. attorneys for heather marlow will discuss their lawsuit today. san francisco police never arrested anyone. her story helped spark a state law to clear up the backlog of dna rape kits that go untested by police departments. her lawsuit accuses san francisco police of not processing her rape kit. will the oakland raiders stay or go? we have been asking this question for weeks but we should have an answer very soon. a live look right now at coliseum. the raiders' current home. but as we've been saying for months, that might change.
5:06 am
pete is there with a decision from nfl owners as soon as today and many folks keep clinging to hat last hope, that last optimism today. >> that's right, guys. they'll take the vote during the owners' meeting in houston that wrap up tomorrow night. as you mention, it could happen today or it could happen on wednesday night. but we're talking about two stadium proposals. you have the oakland raiders and san diego chargers sharing that proposed stadium in carson and st. louis rams at their stadium. now, all three of the home city submitted proposals asking the commissioner to keep the teams in those home cities. he deemed those proposals inadequate. reports that the rams and chargers could end up sharing a stadium, but we'll have to wait and see how that shakes out. in order for any of the plans to move forward, it will need approval from 32 owners in order for that team to move to l.a. >> thanks a lot, pete.
5:07 am

5:31 am
confirmed that one victim was from norway. streets in the area were immediately cordoned off out of fear that it was perhaps the first of coordinated attacks as we saw in paris last year that turned out not to be the case. there are now armed officers and riot police all over the area. witnesses said the blast was heard for miles and that the impact is still being felt on social media as people try to track down friends who are visiting turkey or perhaps live there. the u.s. ambassador to turkey writes closely following reports of an explosion. our thoughts are with those affected. the uk foreign secretary writes istanbul terror bombing shocking. my sympathies with the family and friends of the casualties. uk urgentlying details. no confirmation from the uk that they're not citizens among the dead or injured, as well. again, the turkish president claims that the suicide bomber had links to syria and there had been no official claim of

5:34 am
>> the last shooting happenedp december 17th. a man survived getting shot while in an suv in san pablo and a passenger did not get hit. the chp has not connected the shootings but each time said it was clear and the victims were being specifically targeted. the good news in last night's shooting is those two victims are expected to survive. live here at the chp office in oakland, stephanie chuang, "today in the bay." the search for the gunman is on this morning. it happened saturday night at union city james logan high school. police say the off-duty deputy was volunteering for a school event when he noticed three men in a blocked off area. tried to escort them off the campus when one man pulled out a gun and fired. the deputy was shot in the leg, but is expected to recover. police have the sketch of one of the men seen with the shooter.
