6:01 am
not bad. this is a tuesday but we haven't seen the return of all the traffic flow just yet. after the new year it takes a couple weeks. next week is going to be heavier but right now 101 moves very well through san jose. that early burst starting to ease off and another 20 minutes more traffic down there. the bay bridge toll plaza has had the metering lights through 5:30. that's a good flow of traffic. back to you. >> thank you very much, mike. an update to breaking news. an apparent suicide bomber at a popular tourist destination kills ten people and leaves 15 others hurt. kris sanchez tracking the breaking details from our newsroom. kris, reports a suicide bomber was from syria. >> that is the claim from the turkish president who said the suicide bomber was a 28-year-old syrian national who blew himself up killing those ten people and injuring 15 others. new video of victims arriving at local hospital s tell the story
6:02 am
of that chaos following the attack. among the injured are six germans. one norwegian and at least one norwegian is also among the ten dead. it's not clear at this point if there are any americans among them. there are always images that happened in the tourist district of istanbul as the bombing just happened. it was about 10:00 thinning local time there. so, folks were certainly out and about. turkey's deputy prime minister said that most of the dead were tourists in their 20s, but that there were also turks among the victims, as well. streets in the area were immediately cordoned off out of fear that this might have been the first of a coordinated attack as we saw in paris last year which ended not being the case. but now armed officers and riot police in the area and several countries including germany and denmark warning citizens to stay away from large crowds and demonstrations in turkey. u.s. ambassador to turkey writes "closely following reports of an

6:04 am
are both expected to survive, but, sam, what is troubling on top of this, this is a pattern. the fifth very similar shooting in just the last couple of months in the east bay and, so, we're talking about also people. just in the wrong place at the wrong time getting. a family of five just pulling into a gas station near 80 around 7:45 last night with three young kids getting inside when a bullet struck their car. a 2-year-old did suffer minor injuries after getting hit by the glass debris. even the chping it is stunned by the how the family escaped getting seriously hurt considering the bullet went through a window, hit a headrest and went through a second window. >> pretty miraculous that none of the occupants were hit especially with the three children seated in the back seat. they should count their blessings tonight because it was pretty miraculous. >> the last shooting before last night's happened december 17th. a man survived getting shot while in an suv on 80 in san
6:05 am
pablo around 3:20 in the afternoon. pull alongside the victim and someone opening fire and then one man was killed back in november in sunol, a woman also injured in a shooting on 80 that the chp said may have been linked to a shooting the week before also on 80. the chp has not connected all the shootings but has said each of these times there were victims specifically targeted. live here at the chp office inobeland, stephanie chuang. new this morning, firefighters are at the scene of two separate fires just five blocks apart in vallejo. each happened along sonoma boulevard. at 1:30 this morning and then just 20 minutes later another fire damaged an animal hospital. this is also the second fire to strike that hospital in a month. no word on the cause of the fires or whether they suspect arson. it sounds like something you might hear on "dateline." suspicion of foul play is the reason they're reopening a
