fired upon. on july 23rd, sergeant clark was injured from broken glass when someone fired a shot into her patrol car and missed. an arrest was made in the case. neighbors say their safety is now a constant worry 24/7. >> too much violence around here. and it's happening ever single day. >> i don't think the world needs any more hate. i think people really need to love one another. >> the seven shooting victims are expected to survive. thousands of national guard soldiers who were paid big bucks to fight for our country are now being asked to pay that money back. ten years ago the california national guard offered $15,000 or more to soldiers to reenlist to help with the wars in iraq and afghanistan. audits found that the guard overpaid nearly 10,000 soldiers because it was facing a shortage and needed to fill its ranks. soldiers who refuse to give back
the money could face wage garnishments and tax liens. >> if we could wave the magic wand and make this all go away we would. they've done everything we've asked them to and they didn't commit fraud. they just got caught up in it. >> major general beavers hopes that congress will take a look at how to prevent this problem from happening again in the future. >> a new poll shows that hillary clinton has added to her lead over donald trump and he's now facing some challenging new numbers. mary bruce has more from the campaign trail. >> hillary clinton took her message to church sunday. >> i won't tell you who to vote for. a new tracking poll taken off the final debate shows clinton ahead by double digits up 12
points over donald trump. >> my opponent thinks belittling women makes him bigger. that may be who donald trump is but this election is about who we are and what we believe. >> reporter: clinton sunday targeting the battleground state of north carolina where she'll make her first joint campaign appearance with first lady michelle obama later this week. >> you people in naples, you have a lot of energy. >> reporter: meanwhile trump is focusing on florida but still fighting those accusations of sexual misconduct. >> all of these liars will be sued after the election is over. >> reporter: as trump pledges to take all of his accusers to court, a new woman has come forward. adult film star jessica drake says trump kissed her and two other women without their consent two years ago. the campaign insists this latest campaign is untrue and say it's trump's right to sue the women. >> he's just trying to defend
himself against false accusers as he says. they're covered in the media every single day. he can't get fair coverage. >> reporter: that new poll shows 69% of voters don't like the way he's handling accusations of sexual assault and 59% don't believe his claim that the vote is rigged. abc news, washington. coming up on nbc 7 news at 9:00, president obama heads to california to rally voters, but it's not the presidential race that he's trying to influence. we'll explain. plus, why this might be the perfect time because she doesn't know that it kills 40,000 californians... every year. because she doesn't understand what cancer is. because she can't spell emphysema. because she is a butterfly, who fights fires. because she is my daughter, and the surgeon general says that raising tobacco taxes... is a proven way to make sure she never smokes.

down, and require them to use a lot of water and so the fall and spring are the best times to change your yard. >> the cash for grass program does not apply in areas where local water districts offer their own price match or rebate programs so be sure to check with your local water provider. coming up on abc 7 news at 9:00 another part of the bay bridge is finished and it's a big win for sight seers and cyclist cyclists. and rain is on the way. spencer christian is up next with the forecast. >> 4-0 with today's win in jacksonville. it doesn't matter where the
opened up today. starting today, people can walk or ride across the entire eastern span of the bridge. a four and a half mile trek. the completed path has been long awaited by cyclists. many tried out the completed link today wondering what would be on the other side. >> i have no idea what's there. i've heard that there's some kind of shuttle that's involved at the other end. >> and that free shuttle runs on weekends only and will take people to treasure island. that's because the roads on the island aren't safe for cyclists and pedestrians. >> okay. we'll start with live doppler 7 which shows cloudy skies over the bay area now. you see that big patch of green up there to our northwest. that's a mixed rainstorm coming our way. it will begin to move into the north bay tomorrow and it's going to be a rain maker for a couple of days. let's take a look at current conditions.
it's cloudy, but doesn't seem like the clouds are at a position that would interfere with flights right now. current temperature readings are 61 degrees in san francisco. oakland 64. and san jose 63. 59 at half-moon bay. this is a view from our roof top camera. what appears to be clear conditions at the level in the atmosphere. napa 61. 60 in fairfield and this is the view of the golden gate where traffic is moving smoothly. and these are our forecast features. rain arrives tomorrow, mainly many the north bay through most of the day. showers will continue through much of the bay area into tuesday and a stronger storm will come in on thursday. overnight we'll see mostly cloudy conditions. maybe a spot or two of light rain developing. widely scattered in some parts of the north bay. then tomorrow we'll see rain moving into the north bay. highs will range from only
mid-60s up in parts of the north bay to low 70s in the inland east bay and here's our storm impact scale which we rank new m -- numerically from 1 to 5. right rain and showers, mainly about two tenths of an inch to half an inch in most areas and winds relatively light. starting 7:00 tomorrow morning, notice that as we get later into the day by 1:00 or so in the afternoon more widespread rain in the north bay continuing to push south ward and east ward just a bit and then finally into the evening hours, late evening hours tomorrow night we'll see rain moving through the central part of the bay area pushing out into the bay and overnight into tuesday morning the middle of the morning rush on tuesday will be quite wet if this pattern holds up because rain will have spread to virtually all parts of the bay area by then. showers will break up late afternoon on tuesday. so rainfall totals we project by
tuesday evening. it will range from nearly two tenths of an inch to right around three tenths to a third of an inch through the central part of the bay area down to about a quarter of an inch to the south bay and here is the 7-day forecast. so this storm coming in ranks 1 on the storm impact scale. it will continue into tuesday with lingering showers. wednesday will probably be dry, but it will be mostly cloudy as the second storm of the week begins to move in on thursday. that will be a stronger one with heier rain and stronger winds. it will rank 2 on the storm impact scale. and even next weekend will be mostly cloudy and unsettled with still a slight chance of more showers. >> and even with the rain, mild temperatures across the bay area. >> pretty mild. it's not getting cold yet but it will get wet, that's for sure. >> now sports with mike shoeman. >> in 2014 the raiders are 0-8 on the road. today kicking off a two-game
road trip in florida against the jaguars. looking for a w against the team he used to coach. first quarter 3-0 oakland. jaguars with a chance for six. picks off bort ls in the endzone. 40 seconds left in the half. carr, who threw for 200 yards. watch this catch by crabtree. a few plays later, two yards to crab. 26 oakland at the half. fourth quarter raiders up and punting on 4th and 24 with under 4:00 to play. bad snap, the heck with it, i'm going to run 27 yards for the first down. at least until murray's run. raiders are 4-0 on the road. >> you look around the league and some teams are looking for one and we're blessed to have two go-to guys and it's awesome.
it just gives you as a quarterback a lot of trust and a lot of belief in their abilities and you know, you give them chances to make plays and they do and you keep working on it. >> we're off to a good start. chapter 7 in the books and we've been able to win five of them. we file like we've got a good football team learning how to win games and recognizing there's still a lot of things we need to work on and be better at. >> the 49ers defense has allowed six straight running backs to top 100 yards. rogers ran today and the bucs win over the niners. defense gets exhausted. injuries mount. this game started out the 49ers way though, mike davis caps off a play, 7-0 niners. kaepernick made his first home start of the year. goes 17 yards to drone. better catch. niners are up 14-0 after one
quarter. then the wheels came off. rogers ran for a career high, 154. longest run, 45 yards here which led to a bucs touchdown. then in the third, blind sided and fumbled, which again leads to a touchdown. jameis winston threw three tds. 27-14 tampa. 49er defense gave up 513 yards. 249 on the ground. niners have a six-game losing streak heading into their bye. >> it would be better, throwing i think we threw for about 100 yards. that's not going to win the nfl. we have to be able to do better on that and you know, ultimately we have to string this together as a team and play well as a team for 60 minutes to get wins. >> we work really hard to be good at what we do and when we're not having success it's a
hard pill to swallow but we've still got half a season to go so all we can do is keep working. i mean -- or we can lay down and lose the rest of our games but that's not something that anybody on this team wants to do. >> 26 minute cado with a handball into the box. quakes end their season with a 2-nil loss. nascar of talladega, drivers cut to the final eight today. t truex and keselowski both eliminated. he was lucky it didn't destroy his car. look at it. or his day, he takes the checkered flag. jack in hand. one of the final eight drivers to the championship. hamlin grabs a final spot and if you ain't first, you're last. our plays of the day around the nfl coming up at 11:00 p.m. over
