tv Today in the Bay KNTV August 9, 2019 4:30am-4:59am PDT
good morning to you, it is 4:30 on this friday. we are looking live at the golden gate bridge and we can see it today. we've seen some fog over the last couple of mornings. it is gone this morning but will it be back? thanks for joining us. i'm sknch snch. >> i'm scott mcgrew. laura and marcus have the week off. let's get your friday started right with traffic and weather. >> i'm going to show you something i haven't shown you a few months, we'll look at the radar. >> oh! >> we see some rain off the coast, that's the reason why we don't have the fog at the golden gate bridge. the clouds are a little bit higher and also will stay right there along our beaches as we go into the rest of the morning and into tonight, so we are going to be watching that rain nearby.
a live look outside in walnut creek, as we stay partly to mostly cloudy today and that will keep those temperatures down. we'll talk about where we could see that rain, that's coming up in the forecast and mike, you're starting out with no traffic alerts right now. >> which is also something we haven't seen for a while in the reports. palo alto. we don't see construction crews which may be in action over here, anywhere between embarcadero past the bottom of the screen up to whipple, that stretch we tend to see the overnight crews but i haven't seen any slowing. a little bit unclear whether or not most of the crews took effect last night. look at the speed sensors, they are great all around the bay. again no traffic alerts and no problems getting over toward the bay bridge. a smooth drive. i heard about a crash in hayward. there may be a big rig involved just off of 880. back to you. >> had:31 right now. new this morning into our newsroom this is video coming in of a reported shooting in san francisco's fillmore district. you see police there on the scene, they look to be looking
for clues. there are evidence markers on the ground as well so we know they're working there. we have reached out to police. so far, they're not telling us anything about this incident other than the fact that they are investigating. our crew talked with witnesses at the scene, as many as two people may have been injured but we're working to confirm with police. in february we reported another shooting around the same place. following a series of mass shootings across the country and obviously in gilroy police in san francisco are going to protect the city's biggest annual music festival. >> "today in the bay's" pete suratos is live at golden gate park as the gates are set to open in a few hours. i wonder if people are feeling nervous, pete. >> reporter: good morning to you, kris. the mayor and the police chief of course want folks to have a good time here at the outside lands music festival but the
most important thing is they want folks to feel safe. you will see an increase in security at the three-day music festival. getting into detail as far as what the security may look like this weekend. overall there's going to be more police, fencing and security at the music festival. also there will be an evacuation plan in place but sfpd did not go into great detail as far as how that will look. sfpd has s.w.a.t. officers in place to joint event security and there will be perimeter security, a high priority as a result of some of these recent tragic events that we've been seeing and here is sfpd police chief bill scott going into more detail on that. >> we're enhancing that this year, want to make sure our perimeter is tight and nobody is breaching that perimeter fence line. it's going to be double fence line. >> reporter: as for the festival, there's going to be a number of high-profile artists,
childish gambino, paul sigh on and lil wayne and more bus service going into the event but plenty of security will be in place. the festival gates open at 11:00 a.m. we're live in san francisco, pete suratos for "today in the bay." >> thank you, pete. new details are emerging about the gunman who went on the shooting rampage at the gilroy garlic festival. >> documents we obtained from police reveal investigators found several disturbing items in the suspect's car, a shotgun and police say materials could be used to make a bomb including two pipes, a passport, banking documents, a set of california license plates, registered to a family member, a tent and wilderness training manual and several masks. police search of the gunman's home in gilroy discovered a semiautomatic rifle and ammo packed in that same bag. the gunman killed three people, injured at least 16 others, nearly two weeks ago at the festival. families near clear lake have been forced from their
homes as another fire continues to burn at this hour. clear lake hases o seer the years. the latest fire has been burning since yesterday afternoon, they're calling it the golf fire because it's near buckingham country club. at last check 19 acres burned, it's 30% contained. cal fire on the scene of course. the biggest challenge it's in steep terrain and thick, dry brush. we are still talking with investigators about this breaking news story we brought you all morning yesterday on "today in the bay," that fiery south bay crash that shut down almost all lanes of 101 in south san jose for hours. we don't know much more about why it happened and we are still waiting to find out exactly where those cars caught fire. four vehicles were torched in the accident. one person died, two others injured and a man we talked with made it out of the crash alive. the crash crippled the thursday
morning commute along 101 near the 85 interchange. we have a follow-up on a story we broke last month, the video of a brutal arrest by the palo alto pd sparking outrage by many in the bay area, a team of lawyers asking the police department to open an inquiry into the case. "today in the bay's" sergio quintana has a look at what's being done. >> come on out or we're going to kick the door in. >> how? do you have a warrant? >> we don't need one. >> this is the february 2018 incident in question. palo alto police accuse resident gustavo alvarez are driving on a suspended license, a possible misdemeanor and the arrest that followed one officer can be seen hitting him a couple times and slamming his face into his car windshie wiie saw the video all charges were in a report and after a judge dismissed. >> the police did not have lawful basis to initiate the detention of alvarez and that's why all thees against him were dismissed.
>> reporter: these attorneys say the police violated alvarez's fourth amendment right against illegal search and seizure and accuse the police of unfairly targeting alvarez and others who live at the mobile home park. they asked the human relations commission to look at the case. >> what we're doing here today is calling on the palo alto community to recognize that this is a problem and to address it. >> reporter: the nbc bay area investigative unit confirmed the santa clara district attorney's office opened up a criminal inquiry about the way officers handled this case. a district attorney spokesman said they're waiting for materials from the palo alto police to consider how to proceed. a police department spokesman declined comment because of pending litigation. facebook comes under fire for providing a venue for so-called fake news. now it wants to bring you the real information, it says. the new feature it's investing millions in. plus one airline is offering up free flights, folks, but as

that green means rain, and it's a very light rain that's just off the coast, even reaching into parts of the mendocino coastline this morning, and so as we watch that, we could see a couple of sprinkles in those areas, but really not expecting much in the way of anything that could really total up to anything, and then going into the afternoon, that first wave moves out. there will be another one coming in early tomorrow morning, that could also bring in a couple of spotty sprinkles for the coastline and the north bay, but once again not expecting much in the way of any totals. if you're head at oracle park, first pitch at 7:15, we have some nice weather butwi beg and if you're going to the san jose jazz festival for tomorrow 78 degrees, as we keep that sunshine. the seven-day forecast heats up after this weekend, even starting out on sunday reaching 92 degrees and mid-90s through
