11:00 am
a dead body at apple headquarters. the santa clara county sheriff's office very tight-lipped -- not saying where specifically the body was.. or who it is. our reporter, michelle roberts -- is at the scene gathering information right now.. we'll continue to follow this developing story and bring you the latest as soon as we get it. scott/2shot good morning, and thanks for joining us. i'm scott mcgrew. kris/2shot and i'm kris sanchez. ==kris//2 shot== we are also following a developing story out of pacifica where three schools are on lockdown. ==anim== ==kris//map== terra nova high school, orgega school and ingrid b lacy middle school are in "secure campus" mode. the principal sent out a note to parents saying that because of nearby police activity -- they have decided to
11:01 am
keep all students inside. >> that is because of nearby police activity and they decided to keep all the students inside. according to pacifica police, there was no crime on any of those campuses and the lockdown is just out of an abundance of caution. when we talked with pacificy police, they would not get specific about the crime they're investigating nearby, but we're continuing to ask. >> and other top story, hundreds of city college of san francisco faculty members are on the picket line, not in the classro classrooms. they want a bigger paycheck. >> that means thousands of students have no class to go to today. in fact, the future of their entire education is up in the air. stephanie chuang is live where it's three hours into the strike. it's rowdy crowd behind you. >> pretty rowdy. yeah, i was wondering if you could hear the chanting going on behind me. there are several groups that look like this one here at the main campus. they have been here since 8:00 this morning. the plan is to go another eight
11:02 am
hours. it's mostly part-timers. 700 instructors. counsellors, librarians who say they're not paid enough and now they have had enough. we also had a scene earlier from the mission campus, which comes after a year of fails contract talks. city college is paying 3% less than what it paid back in 2007. faculty members want an 18% raise, but city college says it can only manage 7% in the next two years. the interim chancellor blames accreditation issues from several years ago slashing enrollment from 90,000 to about 70,000. they gave the city college about $20 million to fill in some of the money but that expires after the school year. that means a $25 million drop she has to prepare for. the work is to grohl enrollment. she says this strike falling on day one of fall registration isn't helping. >> i think the one-day strike does have impacts like you said,
11:03 am
impacts on morale, we're concerned about impacts on our enrollment since it is thefirst day. >> lots of money for super bowls. we have lots of money for sports. and we need to have basic good salaries for teachers and respect for the needs of students. >> very sad is to see that the administrators are making a lot of money and that we part-timers are not even meeting our needs. >> now, part-time faculty members are really at risk of losing their jobs because of the drop in enrollment. city college plans on consailidating classes with smaller enrollments. lamb says full-time teachers will not be impacted, but she stresses emotions cannot eclipse the reality now, the numbers. that is that they need to get the enrollment back before they can talk about keeping the same number of staff onboard. what is next is the fact finding
11:04 am
process in these negotiations talks, hoping a third party arbitrator will be able to help move this forward, closer to some resolution. live here at city college of san francisco, stevany chong, nbc news. >> as you saw in stephanie's life shot, it's raining in san francisco. and here comes the rain all around the bay area. once again, our live traffic cameras getting wet. you can see the droplet on some of the lenses there. let's bring in kari hall. how long is this rain going to last? >> we'll see it off and on for the next several hours. a live look at the satellite and radar. this is not a very widespread system. it has been very hit or miss. most of the rain now moving across parts of the east bay and also now moving into the south bay. a closer look at some heavy downpours that have just moved out of dublic, approaching livermore, and we'll see some of the heavy rain for the next several minutes, down toward fremont, the rain is clearing, and that will continue to once
11:05 am
again approach the south bay. so some more scattered showers through at least 1:00 or 2:00, and then the activity winds down as we go into the rest of the evening and the winds will start to kick up. looks like we will have more heavy activity over parts of the central valley. looking at warriors oracle arena. they're getting ready for the gape. it's raining now. it will clear out in time for the game. know a lot of people can breathe a sigh of relief. i'll send it back to you for more on that. >> thank you very much. new at 11:00, b.a.r.t. opening up about the malfunction that caused one of its new train cars to crash during testing. during a news conference that just wrapped up an hour ago,er b.a.r.t. explains an electrical short between a test system and the train car is the source of the problem. that short caused the train's auxiliary power system to shut down during a training run on friday. once the power was down, the brakes stopped working. b.a.r.t. says this is exactly what this system is supposed to
11:06 am
do during this type of malfunction. >> the car did not fail. the operators did not do anything wrong. in fact, they did everything that they could to apply the brakes and stop the vehicle. >> the train car hit a sand berm at about 10 miles per hour. the car itself was not damaged, but crews have had to remove sand from the mechanical system and its wheels. we have been following this b.a.r.t. problem all along. you can find all of our b.a.r.t. stories online, nbcbayarea.com, for complete coverage of b.a.r.t. >> traffic is not yet back to normal on interstate 580 in pleasanton following a deadly multicar crash that just locked up the commute. a little before 6:00 this morning, six vehicles including one big rig slammed into each other. at least three caught fire. one person was killed. for most of the morning, westbound 580 was closed and there are still big backups.
11:07 am
anthony is going to have an update on traffic coming up in just a minute. the warriors' next step to another championship is without steph curry on the floor. we're not nine hours away. this can't be right, for game five against the rockets. >> bob redell was inside with more. >> one of the warriors commented to us yesterday their slogan for the past couple years has been strength in numbers. this is a team effort. that couldn't be truer tonight as the warriors take on the rockets. 7:30, center court, oracle arena, without their star player, without the mvp, steph curry. this is sidio from sunday as he slipped on a wet spot on the court, ended up hurting his right knee. an mri on monday showed that he had a grade one sprain of the mcl. in other words, he could be out for a couple weeks. >> so we believe in that, and i hope everybody else believes in
11:08 am
the strength in numbers. we don't say that for no reason. we say it for a purpose. it's time now to use it. >> i think our confidence level with steph is through the roof. without steph, it's still at the roof. we're not losing much confidence. we still believe in ourselves. we still, you know, think it's very possible for us to make a run. you know, hold it down until he gets back. >> good news for the warriors. the nba naming steve kerr the coach of the year. what makes this distinction atypical is he missed the first half of the season due to back problems. his assistant coach luke walton led the warriors to a 24-0 start, and he finished eighth in voting for coach of the year. kerr was emotional as he reflected on the health problems earlier in the year. >> this was the hardest year of my life. not even close. bob went from being my general
11:09 am
manager, the guy i worked with, to the guy i leaned on every day. >> you deserve this award. you don't deserve it for winning in my opinion 73 games. you deserve it for coming to work every day with how you had to feel. >> even though tonight's game is sold out, you can buy tickets on the resale market. we see prices from a couple hundred dollars to over $6,000. everyone coming here will get a strength in numbers t-shirt. the warriors, of course, leading the series 3-1. they win tonight, they clinch the western conference quarterfinals and advance on to the next round of the nba playoffs. here at the oracle arena, bob redell. >> another news, cryptic new details in a double homicide case in san jose, and police say they do not believe this was a random act of violence. detectives say the suspect knew the family and left bizarre writings behind. the couple were found dead inside their home on lucas court on sunday. along with their bodies,
11:10 am
chilling notes about the couple's last minutes alive. our source told us two of the messages read, i'm cesorry my first killing was clumsy. another read something to the effect of i can't be like you, telling a lie. i can't love someone without telling them. victims' friends say it's hard to believe the pair was murdered. >> very polite, very humble, and which is the reason why i'm finding it so difficult to comrehend what happened. the violence, and to such humility, such politeness, how peaceful they are. >> no arrests have been made in this case so far. investigators are still trying to find the couple's oldest son for questioning. they hope that he may have important information regarding the killing of his parents. in a related note, because that adult son is not here to claim his parents' bodies from the coroner, they cannot be buried according to muslim custom, which dictates that it be as close to the time of death as
11:11 am
possible. >> donald trump is calling himself the prezumpten republican nominee this morning after winning all five northeast primaries last night. hillary clinton won four of five states. where does that leave us? tracie potts reports the latest from washington. >> donald trump in a phone interview this morning hinting at what's in his foreign policy address today. >> we need new thinking, we need a lot better thinking because this is ridiculous what's going on for so many years is ridiculous. >> aides say he'll use a teleprompter but totally rewrote the speech himself. it comes after five victories last night. >> for the five states, i'm so honored. >> maryland, delaware, connecticut, rhode island, and the big prize, pennsylvania, all went for donald trump. >> last night was donald trump's night. and today is indiana's day. >> where john kasich has agreed to back off, allowing ted cruz to compete one-on-one. >> we're barnstorming the state,
11:12 am
traveling across the state, and seeing tremendous support from the people on the ground. >> clinton won four of the five primaries. she lost rhode island to bernie sanders. >> let's go forward. let's win the nomination. and in july, let's return as a unified party. >> we have now won 16 primaries and caucuses all over this country. >> clinton's reaching out to sanders supporters, talking unity. she can now lose every single remaining primary, including california, and still win the nomination. >> now, that assumes she would win some delegates in states she may lose, both clinton and donald trump now need less than 300 delegates to win the nomination. tracie potts, nbc news, washington. >> up next at 11:00, yahoo is growing. the size of its board of directors. we'll show you what that could say about the future of the search giant. >> and rio olympics are 100 days away. the torch has been handed off.

=scott//cu= and welcome back. the dow industrial is gaining 46 points. nasdaq down 38. fed just finished its rate meeting. said they're not going to raise interest rates yet. yahoo capitulated and said it would allow activist investors to join its board of investors. yahoo says it will allow four members of star board ventures to join the board, including the leader of star bird, jeff smith. star bird has been very critical of yahoo's management. to many, this immediately calls into question the future of marissa mayer. starbird thinks she's taking far too long to sell off yahoo, and it's in the middle of taking bids. if she were to step down, now may be the time. >> shares in apple are plunging this morning after the company announced it made less money and sold fewer iphones. this ends 13 years of revenue gains for apple. the loss in share price
11:16 am
translates to $40 billion in market capitalization loss. that's the overall value of the company loss, and $40 billion is a big number to visualize, think of the golden gate bridge. when it was built 78 years ago, it was $1.5 billion in our modern day money. so $40 billion is something like 25, 26 golden gate bridges. apple lost 26 golden gate bridges in value since yesterday. >> a programming note for you, tonight on the nbc nightly news, lester holt will take tv cameras into alphabet's labs for the first time. you probably think of it as google. google x has been the headquarters of all the cool secret stuff google has been working on. we'll see inside for the first time tonight at 5:30. >> the fbi is not sharing its secrets with apple how the tables turn, right? the cupertino company may never know how the feds were able to hack into the san bernadino terrorist's locked phone. the fbi usually lets companies
11:17 am
know if they come across a hack or loophole, but the fbi director said his investigators don't know what the vuln vulnerability was because it paid a third party to help. >> happening now, who is in the driver's seat in the future of transportation, driverless cars discussed at stanford today. the national highway traffic safety administration is hoeszing that event. transportation leaders are taking input on the best and safest ways to roll out those driverless cars. this week, industry leaders including google and ford formed a new coalition to help bring driverless cars to market. our business and tech reporter scott budman is at today's forum and he'll have complete coverage at 5:00 and 6:00. >> rio 2016 summer olympics, only 100 days away, and brazil facing a number of problems. the country's president faces impeachment. the economy is in the dumps. the water isn't fit to swim in. and the zika virus is looming. >> meanwhile, the olympic flame
11:18 am
was handed to organizers without a hitch for the rio de janeiro games today. the rio flame was lit in ancient olympia, the birth's place of the games in greece. it arrived in brazil on may 3rd. bob costas has more from rio. >> predicting the failure of an olympic games has almost become an olympic event in and of itself. in the case of rio de janeiro, there are in fact serious issues confronting the host issue and whether they'll be solved by the time the cauldron is lit is far from certain. we spent a few days down here checking out the preparations and speaking with several olympic and government officials about many of these concerns. including the political turmoil, which could lead to the president's impeachment and the ongoing concerned about the zika virus and water quality. but for all the challenges rio faces, there are several positives. nearly all the venues are complete and a series of successful test events have been held.
11:19 am
major transportation projects are on track, and what is certain above all else is that rio remains one of the most visually spectacular and welcoming cities in the world. settings like this one here on copacabana beach where beach volleyball will be held, should be festive and jam packed. so this august, we'll see if despite all the problems, the sites and spirit of rio become the lasting impressions of these olympic games. >> we're your exclusive home for the olympics. jessica aqueera will be in rio. i have been pestering her for details. she'll bring us live details throughout the games. >> let's check your weather. lots of rain moving through the bay area. >> yes, we have seen some rain. also some spots where the rain is clearing. we have the showers earlier, ocean beach. you can still tell that the sand was wet. but look at the skies. it's clearing out there, and then we head over to sunol, where the rain is really coming down. and you can barely see anything.
11:20 am
so low visibility in spots. this low pressure system still delivering some spotty showers to the bay area. that will be the case as we go through the rest of the day. also picking up on a couple lightning strikes here. as it continues to move over the hills. so as it moves away from livermore and pleasanton, still that chance that there could be lightning, thunder in these storms. we have been talking about today, that's still a possibility as it continues to move off towards the east. and then we'll see much of the rain winding down later on this evening, some spotty showers, and still some more activity over the parts of the sacramento valley. so we'll be watching out for the potential of more storms. here we'll have gusty winds picking up later tonight and into the start of the day tomorrow. so far, we have had rainfall totals at about a tenth of an inch for most of san francisco. and then we head over to the east bay, where you have had some areas also getting about a tenth of an inch, and then it's just now starting to come down
11:21 am
in pleasanton and also livermore. i think we'll be measuring small amounts of rain there. current temperatures are in the upper 50s to low 60s. we have been closely watching this because the giants game will be kicking off in about an hour, and looking at them trying to keep the field dry, they have been out there with the squeegee, i guess that's what it's called, over the tarp, and trying to push that water off the field. still looking good. at first pitch, it will be 62 degrees. you still want to bring rain gear because we will have a chance of showers there. it's raining now in oakland, but by the time the gym starts, the warriors game later this evening, it will be cleared out. temperatures dropping back to the low 60s. a look at all the microclimates, a mix of sun and clouds, scattered showers, even the possibility of thunderstorms. there's enough energy in the atmosphere to see that popping up in just a couple spots, and then as we take a look at the seven-day forecast at the bottom of the screen, our weather will be drying out and warming up. scattered showers today. as this area of low pressure continues to move off to the
11:22 am
east, some gusty winds later on this evening. mild and breezy conditions, and a quick warmup in the forecast as this high pressure builds from friday into saturday as well as sunday. a look ahead to the weekend forecast. nothing like today. sunny and much warmer with highs in the low 70s. 80 degrees in the north bay on friday. and then up to the upper 80s in some spots. close to 90 degrees by the end of the weekend. so kris and scott, time to make plans and enjoy the summer like weather. >> she showed us all the guys squeegeeing the ballpark. we live near a little league park, you see the dads and grandpas and moms doing the same thing, but not as glamorous. >> occasionally it's nice when little league is rained out and you can go home. just saying. >> they never get rained out. >> up next, firefighters prepare for the start of this year's fire season. first, a change in training. >> but first, happening now,
11:23 am

11:27 am
activity pick up. >> el nino and the drought created volatile fire season fuel. >> it has made the grass crop grow out there, so we have the higher level of gas problem. a lot of trees out there are drought stricken. >> and firefighters aren't just training to battle wild land fires. crews are working on structure fire response, usually handled by urban agencies. >> a lot of our stations are located in outlying areas where they may be the first and only engine on the scene of a structure fire or medical aid. >> today's overriding message -- >> we tell them, a small fire can hurt you just as much as a big fire. >> robert handa reporting. in all, more than 100 firefighters will staff the stations in june. >> a dangerous drug responsible for at least 14 overdpoes drugs is now on bay area streets. the cdc said bay area hospitals have treated seven patients for overdose.

11:32 am
>> to be able to come up with leads, to solve something from 1984, is huge. >> the lieutenant says the handa case has always been an open investigation, but in 2011, the police department's cold case unit, along with the fbi, took a closer look. >> new things like technology that come into play that help us evaluate different evidence in different ways. give us new clues and avenues of investigation to follow. >> police will not be specific about what led them to charge the man and why it took so long. they would only say it's currently serving a 26 year prison sentence related to separate child molestation charges in 1981, 2001, and 2002. earl handa said he didn't know the suspect. he said the fact that someone has been charged after so lodge is like opening up an old wound, but it does give some sense of closure to the family. >> when it happened, you never think it will take 31 years for something to result.
11:33 am

11:35 am
very dense, are wooden in structure. and often most vulnerable to fires. >> tonight's meeting on the investigation is at 5:00, if you want to go, it's at lict middle school. >> just in to our newsroom, nbc confirming republican presidential candidate ted cruz has tapped a running mate, carly fiorina. he plans to unveil that selection this afternoon in indianapolis. fiorina is the former chief executive at hewlett-packard. she endorsed cruz this year. the texas senator is trying to generate momentum for his struggling campaign. it's extremely unusual to nominate your vice president before you yourself are nominated. just yesterday, gop front-runner donald trump swept five primaries in northeastern states. >> former house speaker dennis hastert has become one of the

massachusetts. all states at the top of the income inequality gap--- new york, louisiana, massachusetts, all states at the top of the income equality -- inequality gap, and they were
11:52 am
all state that won by hillary clinton. >> we asked -- when asked to explain his poor performance there, bernie sanders said the answer is simple. poor people don't vote. but is that true? in today's reality check we dig into voting records and reveal the truth. >> this type of rigged economy is not america is supposed to be about. >> it's no mystery. hallmark of bernie sanders' campaign for president is tackling the issue of income inequality. you might be a little surprised to find of the bottom 25 states for income gaps, 17 have held primaries or caucuses so far, and 16 have voted for hillary clinton. how could that be? chuck todd asked sanders about it on "meet the press." >> because poor people don't vote. that's just a fact. the last election, 2014, 80% of poor people did not vote. >> it is a fact, poor people vote in lower numbers. sanders is absolutely correct.
11:53 am
just check out the census data for the 2014 election. households at or below the federal poverty line, about $30,000 a year, voted dlu31% ofe time. watch what happens when you rise into higher income brackets, the voting rate shoots up considerably at each level, topping out at 56% for those earning $150,000 or more. >> send a message to the billionaire class. >> but here's what sanders isn't telling you. the 2014 midterm elections had really low turnout. you have to go back to 1942, the world war ii era, to find a midterm election with a lower voting rate. it was a shade under 34% that year, and 36% in 2014. the year sanders is using to make his case. the point here is that everyone voted in lower numbers in 2014. the average vote and the poor
11:54 am
vote were only separated by a few percentage points. sanders have a solid claim here, wealthier people do more. but it's hard to see how that explains sanders losing 16 out of those 17 states. for reality check, i'm sam brock. back to you. >> well, you can join sam, scott, and laura, and me sometimes with kari and mike every morning. today in the bay starts at 4:30 in the morning. >> join you if it's monday through friday. >> sometimes i'm not in the studio. >> r a check of the weather.
