6:13 am
6:14 am
fremont.. =laura/live=ad lib lis we continue to follow breaking news at fremont at washington and robert. police have a home surrounded. they believe a suspect from an officer-involved shooting yesterday is inside that house. it is burning because tear gas grenades were launched into the house in hopes to bring the suspect out. the fire started on the porch.
6:15 am
they have contained it in a way. they know the suspect could be inside a room in that home. it's not even his home. he went into it yesterday afternoon after reportedly being involved in that police shooting. multiple agencies on the scene. bob redell is there gathering information. we'll have a live report at 6:15. pg&e getting hit with $24 million fine for shoddy record-keeping on top of a $10 million fine for a natural gas explosion in carmel that destroyed a home two years ago. they say a judge rimmed an additional $24 million fine. utility tells the chronicle improvements are being made and executives are reviewing that decision. the state senate wants to delay coal exported facility.

"the new york times" did a piece on who supports trump. asked intel ceo about his plan to host the republican candidate as he visits san jose today.
6:18 am
that's when he withdrew the invitation and said he is not supporting any presidential candidate. one, the two really don't have a lot in common. it is curious there was ever a connection between them. looking at their public statements, they have very different opinions on women and immigration. secondly, it's an indication how devisive trump is that the mere mention, a simple question in the "new york times" could have one of the ceos of one of the biggest companies going from hosting a candidate to announcing he doesn't support any candidate at all. a strange update in the fading fortunes of elizabeth holmes. the one-time wonderken was worth billions and is now worth nothing. "forbes" admits it doesn't have access to her financial information but holmes opens half the blood testing company theranos which was worth
6:19 am
billions but now by "forbes" estimate is only worth hundreds of millions. because investors will get first crack at any assets before she does, that leaves holmes with zero. >> uber drivers will be back in court today. some urging the judge not to approve a settlement between the car drivers and the car sharing company. drivers get money but won't be classified as employees. the king of saudi arabia invested $3.5 billion in uber. that gives an overall value of $62 billion. the biggest, most valuable private start-up. >> aot of money in saudi arabia. >> from oil to ride sharing. thank you very much. warriors fans, are you ready? a live look at the now quiet oracle arena, but tonight they come out and play game one of the nba finals against the

90 for the north bay. 95 for the south bay. tri-valley getting up to 98. going to be hot especially for the inland valleys. we have changes, especially once we hit saturday and sunday. there will be a trough that develops to our south. that will bring in the chance for thunder and lightning. not that we'll get rain but maybe the sierra will. you see swirling across the pacific. i don't think we'll see a whole lot of rain. maybe parts of the sierra. this high pressure has been keeping our atmosphere dry. once this area of low pressure moves in, we'll get clouds out of it. i don't think we'll get rain saturday night to sunday night. temperatures cool off toward next week. we are talking about 90s going back into the 80s. what is it looking like on this
6:23 am

6:34 am
the more recent pops we heard. the armored car is backing up with the s.w.a.t. officers. this man barricaded himself, broke into this home last night. this is a random house he broke into. fortunately, no one was at home. he shot his way in. police started communicating with him around 11:30 via phone trying to get him to come out. that wasn't working. around 2:15 they launched their first tear gas canister. that started the original porch fire. they kept talking to him after that tear gas canister was launched. the indication being he was still alive. then it was around 3:30 they lost communication. the cell phone went dead. here we are, the last time they spoke with him was 3:30. they are going under the assumption he is still alive inside. they've been trying to flush him

6:51 am
bringing rain showers to the pacific northwest. we are going to get in our own cooling. unfortunately, i done think we'll see rain. because of a trough you can see denoted by these clouds here. that is what we are watching, this trough getting under this ridge. that will bring us a potential for clouds and even weekend thunder. the air is so dry i don't think we'll squeeze rain out of it. 9 s for san jose. 87 for palo alto. upper 60s to low 70s for san francisco. low 90s possible for places like the north bay. 80s there and mid 90s for the tri-valley. we are going to talk about an area of low pressure moving in. more of that coming up. way back the last report a few minutes ago i said nothing reported for the san mateo bridge. now we see the flashing lights.
6:52 am
chp has reports for the flat section. i marked the arrow where you see the slowing westbound 92. low clouds there lower visibility. might be a factor. the bigger issue is there is a car somewhere across that flat section. that will be an issue. westbound 84 across that dunbarton bridge. here is south bay with the start for that morning commute. the freeways are showing slowing. area around washington boulevard and fremont boulevard, police activity since yesterday. bob redell updates that. automall parkway. the fremont breaking news we've been covering all morning long. we'll take you back there live. look at the house now fully engulfed in flames where a suspect believed to be involved

here are the top stories on nbc bay area.. =sam/toss=. let's get straight to today in 6:56. before you head out the door, here are the top stories on the nbc bay area. >> bob redell joins us live from fremont with an update on that breaking news. an active standoff still under way. are police narrowing in on the suspect? we see the fire has gotten bigger by the minute. >> this is the home on roberts avenue where they believe this man who shot those two fremont police officers has been holed up since last night. within the past 30 minutes, the house, the entire house caught fire. it's fully involved. within the past minute, the fire department finally started putting water on it. the reason they are letting it burn because the thought is if he was inside, if he was still alive, they didn't want anyone going nearby and risk getting shot by this man.
6:57 am
