so it's appropriately titled, i guess, for this portion of the south bay. a look at light traffic all over the bay. we're concerned about this on the shoulder just at the 87 merge where a lot of focus of the traffic is right now. at the airport you see that slowing right at the scene starting to build. this motorcycle is over on the and the saddlebag which was on fire that is out now. no injuries reported but definitely a distraction as the motorcycle driver is on the shoulder. that light build for 101 and the rest of silicon valley. your travel times, a quick check approaching the bay bridge, no problem. getting to the maze, a few slowing of traffic. >> for the first time in almost nine years o.j. simpson is waking up inside a nevada prison with a chance at being released. in just a few hours had will meet with members of the state parole board to ask his freedom. >> "today in the bay's" cheryl hurd joins us live from outside the courthouse in carson city,
nevada, to explain how soon a decision could come down and tell us what the atmosphere there is like right now. >> reporter: good morning, sam and laura. o.j. simpson may know his fate by noon today, but he's not here. he's in nevada and will be doing this hearing via teleconference. the media is here in big numbers, as you can see. a lot of media here and a lot in the back of the building. you see the barriers here. police are expecting crowds in big numbers. now the hearing is expected to take an hour or less with simpson making his case, responding to questions and then waiting for the board's decision. this is the second time simpson will face the panel. it comes after his conviction in 2008 for armed robbery, kidnapping, and other charges after he and a group of friends took sports memorabilia from two dealers at the palace station hotel and casino in las vegas. simpson has reportedly been a model inmate with no
disciplinary issues. >> and if ever there's a candidate that deto be released it's o.j. simpson. >> he may very well get parole just based upon the merits of his conduct in this case. >> reporter: a case that is not supposed to have any impact on today's hearing is simpson's controversial acquittal after the murder in 1994 of his ex-wife, nicole brown, and friend ron goldman. if paroled simpson's earliest release date would be in october. if denied simpson will have to wait at least a year for his next hearing. now we are told that o.j. simpson's sister and his oldest daughter will speak at the hearing in lovelock, never. also one of the victims in the lass vegas case is expected to speak. now this is a big deal for folks who o.j. simpson in his heyday.

"today in the bay's" kris sanchez joins us live from the university this morning to explain what happened. kris? >> reporter: good morning to you, laura and sam. it seems stanford police know who the suspected rapist is because the victim knows him and it happened yesterday evening. it happened about 1:30 in the morning, though, on tuesday
morning. police say the victim and the suspect are acquaintances but didn't say why they were together nor why the 53-year-old man is under arrest at this point, only that they are investigating. if you know anything about that situation stanford police want to hear from you. according to the latest stanford university statistics available there were 39 reported sexual offenses reported on campus. 25 of which happened in student residences. only one of those reports was considered unfounded. the latest numbers available are from 2015. now you can find a link to those statistics and my twitter feed along with the victim resources by the university and stanford police. you can find those in my twitter feed and put them up on my facebook page as well. kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> kris doing some digging for us. thank you very much for that live report. 6:05. new details on a story we first broke on "today in the bay" yesterday morning. we are learning neighbors of a walnut condo complex that went

you see that picture, a photo of a coyote spotted near blossom hill park. that is one of at least two sightings just this week. we investigated why there have been so many sightings recently. wildlife experts told us sightings are common this time of year especially after a wet winter. the animals are trying to feed their young and meals are easy to find populated areas. so here is a tip. secure your trash cans and make sure you keep your pets inside at dusk and dawn. it is 6:07. as you take the dog for a walk this morning keep them close by. let's check out the day for oakland as we start out with some nice, cool weather but there will be some sunshine, a breeze, and temperatures at noon at 66 degrees. 73 degrees at 4:00. and then cooling down once again by 8:00. if it's a beach day, we're going to have some nice weather along the santa cruz beaches. in the mid-50s, low clouds to start but then the sun coming out around noon. 64 degrees and 73 degrees at

to a san francisco man who sold "hamilton" ticks- welcome back at 6:23. a san francisco man sold his hamilton tickets. >> it actually cost him money and he didn't understand what went wrong. he turned to our respond team for help. consumer investigator chris chmura is here with the story. good morning. this man was the hook for more than $2,000 and he learned a lesson that anyone who sells tickets should know. nick williams sold six hamilton 60s valued at $500 each on stub stubhub but it wasn't quite a done deal. nick hadn't yet received the fiphysical tickets from the theater. now they say it's okay for
consumeers to sell ticket before they have them but sellers must provide the date that they'll have the tickets in hand. and nick says he did. he says he based that date on when the theater told him it would mail the tickets but those tickets from the theater never arrived. >> i was trying to remain calm and hopefully i could still rectify the situation but every day that passed it didn't look good. i was getting extremely nervous. >> because nick couldn't deliver the ticket on the date promised it canceled the sale and penalized him $2,400. according to the policy it's allowed to charge nick the additional cost to get the buyer s similar seats to the same show. nick was frustrated. he felt it wasn't his fault since he never received the tickets from the theater. we contacted them and they reimbursed him the $3,000 for the tickets he never received. we tried to find out why they never sent nick the tickets.
the theater wouldn't comment. we contacted stub hub. it refunded nick the $2,400 penalty. in a statement, stub hub says it was unfortunate the venue was unable to fulfill the customer's order so as a one-time courtesy stub hub stepped in to pay for the lost tickets. in his policy stub hub advises sellers who don't have tickets in hand to consider selecting a ticket delivery date as far out as possible. if you immediate to change the delivery date it stub hub can charge you fees. if you have a consumer complaint call us or online at nbcbayarea.com/respond. thank you, chris. 6:25 right now. adobe systems, which already has a large presence in san jose, now reportedly is expanding. the software giant just leased an office building downtown. not far from there adobe bought on san fernandez street. both locations are a short distance from the company headquarters. we're still awaiting details on plans but we do know 3,000

we'll start out with some mid to upper 50s as you get ready to head out the door grabbing the hot coffee. it'll be 54 degrees now this san francisco stepping out at 52 degrees in the north bay. if you're going to at that ti&td the giants game this evening in the low 60s but you'll definitely need some long sleeves and something nice and warm to wear. let's check out the day planner for san jose. we start out with some 60s rising to the mid-70s at noon. that's great outdoor lunch weather and then rising to the low 80s. a beautiful day but it will get hot this weekend so i'll have a look at that forecast coming up in a few minute. that's in about 6:37, i believe, my weekend forecast coming up. but mike takes us back now to san mateo. >> now overall a great light, easy drive. look at the speed sensors. will take you back over to the san mateo area westbound 92 right around el camino. the slowing we saw from the earlier crash activity looks like it's calmed down. an ambulance has been involved.
many more motorcycles on the roadways which are tougher to see, so be careful. keep that extra second before you make the lane change. it looks like that slowing as a result of the ladder being cleared as well across the san mateo bridge. no delays. i do want to take you for a live look for the san mateo bridge itself. we see this slowing. it just showed up. no incidents reported. i did want to give the backup a few seconds to develop. the flashing lights i saw earlier cleared from the shot but i'm not sure where along this the incident is. i will track this. the dumbarton bridge might be a better alternate right now westbound. in the oakland area a nice, easy drive north. the rest of your commute an easy flow and now track iing the san mateo bridge span. thank you very much, mike. we are tracking the latest developments at beshg. uc berkeley at the center of another controversy involving a conservative speaker who was supposed to be making an appearance on campus. >> university officials say they

the venue change and they're offering to do that with them as early as next week. of course the campus is no stranger to controversy surrounding conservative speakers. as we saw the protests the night of a scheduled back in february and then subsequent rallies around all of berkeley when they were in support of ann coulter who canceled her speech in response to security concerns. now i did get a chance to go to ben shapiro's twitter. he says he plans to come to berkeley one way or another and still no word fromly officials this morning as far as what the other proposed venues would be. we're live from uc berkeley, pete suratos for "today in the bay." >> thank you very much, pete. 6:33. also in the east bay this morning a father shot and killed in a haywood neighborhood while pushing his baby in a stroller. >> truly a gut-wrenching story. bob redell in san leandro. bob, do deputies have any sense, any lead on a possible suspect?
>> reporter: the alameda county sheriff's office, sam and laura, tells us so far, no, they have not i.d.'d a suspect nor made any arrests but are looking into whether yesterday's murder shooting was gang related. it happened in an unincorporated part of award. this father was pushing his 3-month-old son in a stroller along willow avenue in unincorporated hayward when someone shot him a number of times. he was pronounced dead on the scene. his baby, fortunately, was not hurt. investigators are looking into whether or not this might have been a drive-by shooting. now a man who says he knew the victim tells us his friend was happy spending time with his new child. >> oh, man, he was happy. he called him little man. >> we believe there's an associated vehicle, there are suspect related to a vehicle. whether they got out on foot or
shots from the vehicle, those are all things we're working through right now. >> reporter: the alameda county sheriff's office tells us the baby is safe. they did take custody of him and they have been looking for his mother. the victim's name has not been released but a sergeant tells us that the father was 30 years old. reporting live here outside the sheriff's substation in san leandro, bob redell, "today in the bay". >> and now a baby without a father. >> incredibly tragic story. bob redell will it continue following it closely all morning long. this tweet you're looking at here, put out just six minutes ago. follow for instant updates on the search for suspect. 6:35 right now. politics right now being put on the back burner as lawmakers are trying to think and pray good thoughts for arizona senator john mccain who has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. one of the most common but also one of the most aggressive brain tumors there is.
doctors discovered the tumor after mccain had surgery for a blood clot last week at the mayo clinic hospital in phoenix. we asked direct or of neuroon college dr. susan chang about this kind of fast-moving cancer. >> if no therapy subsequent to the surgery is performed we know that these tumors are so aggressive we are looking at months of survival. with treatment we can extend that. the average is probably about a year to 15 months. >> dr. chang says mccain's overall good health works in his favor but he is 80 years old and that works against him. the mccain family is asking the public for prayers. >> everybody pulling for senator mccain this morning. now back to the politics on capitol hill this morning where president trump made some bold headlines yesterday for statements that he made in an interview with "the new york times." live in washington this morning, sarah, one of those statements had to do with a warning to

>> you would not say he would fire mueller but called it a violation and said it was a red line. >> i don't make money from s russia. in fact, i put out a letter saying that i don't make -- from one of the most highly respect the firms. >> reporter: the interview comes amid the revelation president trump had a second, previously undisclosed encounter with russian president vladimir putin at the g20 summit in germany. the white house down played saying trump met with leaders from many nations. and the new former campaign manager paul manafo are rt and donald trump jr. will testify before the senate judiciary committee next week. the president still defending his son's meeting with the russian lawyer at trump tower in june. >> did not know about the meeting but if he had known he probably would have said go ahead and do it. >> reporter: senior trump adviser and son-in-law jared kushner will be interviewed by staff in a closed session on monday. and more developments this morning.
