6:03 am
and had life-threatening injuries here at the scene. that is now at the hospital. there was conflicting information about whether or not that person had survived this incident, but at last report, the san jose police department tells us that that person is still fighting for his life. but, again, the owner of the taco truck said that there were lots of people out here. at least ten people having some dinner. late-night dinner when this shooting appeared to have happened. san jose police will continue this investigation, though the roadway here east william street between tenth and ninth street will reopen as soon as we clear out of the way. we will stay here for you, as well, this morning. in san jose not far from san jose state university. 6:03 right now and more anger bubbling after another officer-deadly involved shooting. this happened near 19th just before 10:00 yesterday morning. the public health department says the homeless outreach team was trying to get a homeless woman to the doctor when they encountered a homeless man with
6:04 am
a knife. they called police. responding officers say they fired bean bag rounds, but they had to use their guns when they say the suspect lunged at them. but witnesses say jose luis never lunged at officers. >> he puts up the thing showing him it's not a knife. >> what was it? >> like a cake spreading tool. they start launching bean bags at him. so, he blocks it and could only take so much and he gets up and starts to run. >> we have been working very, very hard to try to figure out ways to contend with folks with other weapons. protesters demanding reform of the department hit the streets last night. 6:04, this is all coming as the city considers arming some san francisco police officers with tasers. the issue drew a packed house at a police commission meeting earlier this week. in february, police chief greg proposed a limited taser program that would only provide tasers to specifically trained officers. laura a series of

i'm a customer relationship i'm roy gmanager.ith pg&e. anderson valley brewing company is definitely a leader in the adoption of energy efficiency. pg&e is a strong supporter of solar energy. we focus on helping our customers understand it and be able to apply it in the best way possible. not only is it good for the environment, it's good for the businesses' bottom line. these are our neighbors. these are the people that we work with. that matters to me. i have three children that are going to grow up here and i want them to be able to enjoy all the things that i was able to enjoy. together, we're building a better california.
6:14 am

6:16 am
you may even realize the ad at the top of your website or what not is fix. i posted a link on my facebook page and we tweeted it out and, sam and laura, you can retweet it, as well. a tax scam has gotten much worse. hackers send an e-mail to a company that purports to be from the ce and said says me all the records for tax purposes. that is very sensitive information. who would fall for that? very smart people including office workers at snapchat and cgate. we're not in a bubble according to janet yellen who ought to know such thing. this would make us all very happy, except kind of the rule is you don't know you're in a bubble until it pops. alan greenspan said the same thing and he was wrong. you've seen half-court contests at basketball games. the sacramento kings held a tech pitch contest. small tech companies got to pitch to their audience and the audience voted on the favorite and the winner got a big check. gave $100,000 to a company in

6:18 am
peninsula. 56 degrees in the east bay and 53 now in the north bay. let's drop in on the east bay now as our temperatures are at 55 degrees in pleasanton. at fremont 58 degrees and a fairly mild morning as we start out. and if you're heading to the giants game today, you will need the rain gear as we will have some rain at times and also temperatures that start out at 62 degrees and down to 58 degrees by the end of the game. also those coming out of the west, southwest at 10 to 20s an hour. don't want to bother with the rain, why not just watch it on tv. we'll have it broadcast live here on nbc bay area starting at 7:00. now the seven-day forecast at the bottom of the screen. you will see how our temperatures pretty much hold steady over the next few days. highs bring it back closer to average for the beginning of april and mostly cloudy skies and in the north bay and you may not see that rain until later on this evening and most of the activity will stay south of san
6:19 am
francisco until tonight. we're looking that futurecast and rain moving into napa. look at the time frame. 11:00 this evening and heavier rain moving across parts of the south sxwa the east bay. it lingers into early saturday and also at times some spotty rain on saturday afternoon, but it won't be raining the entire time. and it looks like we'll get more breaks on sunday as we start to see that weather system starting to slide off to the east. we will still have, though, a slight chance of some light rain. during this weekend, models are still kind of all over the place with how much rain we'll get. of course, the lighter rain for the north as we will see that rain taking longer to get there, also have the possibility of over an inch of rain in some spots. san francisco looking like closer to 0.5 according to that computer model and the rain will continue to roll up from the south and then we'll see this sliding to the east. we catch a break for sunday into the start of next week. still a nice onshore flow keeps our temperatures down. the five-day temperature trend
6:20 am
for san jose slight or below average only reaching into the mid up toer 60s and then a look at the weekend forecast. highs in the mid-60s for today well as tomorrow into sunday. sunday will be the best day to get outside based on a little bit more of a break in the rain pattern. let's check in now with anthony to see what's happening on the roadways. >> earlier we told you about a couple accidents in the east bay. we want to recap and show you what's happening. 880 southbound right near the dumbarton bridge. 880 southbound and then head down past that and continues to remain slow because of another accident and one just past that. that's your slow spot. things do improve once you ghet to the south bay. 101 northbound is starting to slow, as well. we're seeing typicalern all morning lo right between the 680 and 880 overpass. want to take you outside and show you it looks like, again. not all that bad and we're seeing slowing speeds here at 40 miles per hour. again, not stop and go. that's the good news. back to you guys. >> thanks so much, anth. 6:20 right now. the world's longest putt or

6:25 am
congress. >> yeah, looks like the u.s. senate says hands off on this one. there was a measure out there as part of this big faa renewal that they're working on that would have required a minimum amount of space in your airline seat and would have blocked the airlines from shrinking the seats, the aisles and the space between the seats any further. but now it looks like that's going no where. it was rejiected. also looking at some other things that passengers have been concerned about baggage fees and change fees that the airlines impose and security measures outside the tsa barrier before you go through that line. that was the problem in brussels. this bill would also take a look at screening for people who work in the airport and have access to secure areas. all of that part of the big picture. but in terms of the airline seats, looks like you're just out of luck. the airlines really fought against this saying that we have not had regulations.
6:26 am
it's been d-reregulated since 1978. they don't think it is the government's job to tell the airlines how many inches between the seats. it's not as many as it used to be. >> really strong lobbying arms in the airlines or no tall men and women running the airlines. one of the two for sure. 6:26 right now. an epic meltdown for one of golf's greats moments into his first hole of this year's master's. this is a big one. >> one of the guys you root for. ernie els. when you hit the links. ernie els yesterday missed six putts on one hole all within three feet before notching a nine on a par 4 first hole. that's the highest score ever for the first hole in 80 years at the master's. els has won four major championships and not exactly a slouch. he later blamed the yips for his quintuple bogey.

working when he heard what he thought was one, or two gunshots. one person shot in the head or the back and it was his impression that the gunman in a car that drove off. now, police are not specifying exactly what happened here. they say they don't know what the motive in the shooting was, but they are looking into what happened. it was around 11:00 last night when the shooting was reported and we do know that there is no suspect in custody at this point. and that the victim is in the hospital and perhaps is clinging talife at this point. we did talk with the owner of the taco truck as i mentioned. they are packing up today and they say they're not going to be back at work, but we do know that the investigators on this case are working this case all day long and if anything comes up and any suspect descriptions that are helpful we'll get them out to you. kris sanchez, "today in the bay." a very disturbing investigation in contra costa county where a dental assistant

6:50 am
some outdoor plans, even though it will be cloudy and still cool. we will not see as much rain. but the computer models putting down some different amounts of rain. this one showing the possibility of over an inch of rain for most of the south bay and parts of the east bay. and then as you go up san francisco, little over 0.5 and lighter amounts for the north bay and that kind of makes sense considering that this rain will take its time making it to the north bay and the system is still well to the south of us. into the next couple of days, it will be pushing off to the east. our rain tapers off on sunday, once we get on the back side of that area of low pressure and our temperatures will stay cool, as well. here's a look at the temperature trend for san francisco. we will be slightly above average on sunday, but then dropping it back to about 60 degrees for the start of next week as we see those clouds lingering for the next several days. let's check in now with anthony to see what's happening on the roadways. >> the south bay right now, we've been telling you about the slow know. hasn't been all that bad because
