4:32 am
hills. you can hear them shouting chino hills makes history. one of three winning tickets for the record $1.6 billion jacktpo were sold and the other two tickets in florida and tennessee. >> jennifer live in chino hills. we're all working it, jen, aren't we? >> yeah, we're all here. you know what, everyone in chino hills that came out last night and some people are still here they got over it pretty quickly because they were so pumped up that a winner was from their neighborhood. people just showed up at this store. i've never seen anything like that with all of these people just showing up at the store. a 1 in 292 million chance to win that $1.5 billion jackpot. well, it's split three ways now. partly going to tennessee, partpar partly going to florida and one lucky winner here in california.

nobody took home the grand prize here in the bay area. several in the bay area did match five out of the six numbers. we'll have more about the several winners here locally coming up in the next half hour. but there are your powerball numbers. new this morning, a horrific end to a traffic stop in the east bay. about 12:30 this morning. alameda county sheriff deputies pulled over a reported stolen car on highway 238. before they could walk up to that car, the driver hopped a fence and either jumped or fell to his death. he landed 30 feet below in the pioneer cemetery where he died. a paernsh ssenger in the stolen was not arrested. new clues are emerging from the deadly b.a.r.t. shooting in the east bay. police released the surveillance photos who killed another man on a b.a.r.t. train in san francisco.
4:35 am
police say it's not clear if the gunman knew the victim. the victim has not yet been identified. and the search is on for a man described as the makeup bandit. this is newly released surveillance video of the suspect. police say just before christmas that man stole cosmetics from a walgreen's. the man in a santa hat then chased after him, even pulling him back inside. you see it there. but then the suspect pulls a knife and that's when the group backs off. anyone with information is certainly urged to call the police. we're going to check in with anthony right now. he has a look at our forecast. it is dry right now, but the rain is coming later. >> another system move in in the afternoon and the evening. by that i mean we're not expecting as much rain or wind. across the satellite and across the pacific, we do have some fog across parts of the north bay and keep in mind as you get going on the roads this morning. mike will have a look at that in a minute. but you'll notice temperatures are five degrees cooler than they were yesterday at this
