a celebration where don knapp is with local reaction to this historic event. don. >> reporter: dana, it is a little unusual for us to come to a rally in support of a revolution and then learn that the revolution is over, the people have won and now they are celebrating. that's what they are doing here at united nation's plaza, celebrating, not wanting to let go of this moment. egyptians everywhere are elated with their people's victory. >> absolute euphoria. elated. it is a proud moment for them. >> reporter: but are they too ufor euforic. >> egyptians have brought freedom to themselves a couple times before. hopefully they get it right this time. >> reporter: egyptians facing an uncertain future with a lot of possibilities. one may be a government formed by the tech savvy people that
6:02 pm
led the revolt. >> it is very uncertain what will happen. >> reporter: he works on middle east issues says there is also a chance the military may not want to relinquish power. >> we could see the muslim brotherhood come to power. this has traditionally been the most powerful opposition, although banned and underground movement in egypt. and the third option is one of chaos and potentially dissent into civil war as the different players in egypt struggle for control. >> reporter: it may have an impact on u.s. foreign policy in the middle east. >> it is difficult to imagine that any of the outcomes will be as overtly or solidly proamerican as the hosni mubarak regime. why hosni mubarak was to be so pro american because he was not accountable to his electorate which is much less proamerican. >> reporter: after so much years of repression egyptians believe the future can only be
6:03 pm
brighter. >> i'm optimistic that this will be a true democracy. >> reporter: there are plenty of reasons to be enthusiastic about what happened in egypt. >> don knapp, thank you very much. breaking news out of vallejo this hour. an officer-involved shooting leaves one man dead and it happened less than an hour ago in the area of mini drive. sources tell cbs5's robert lyles that a police chase led up to this fatal shooting. apparently several police cars are still there on the scene. the streets in that area are blocked off. we will be following the story into the evening and we will get you more information as it comes into us. a missing couple, a dead body in a hotel and an abandoned car near devil's slide. that's what san francisco police are dealing with as they investigate this bizarre mystery. linda yee and who police believe should shed light on this case. >> reporter: they are looking for the husband in the missing
6:04 pm
couple case. he is still missing tonight but his wife was found here. her body found in their hotel room yesterday afternoon. now, the coroner is not saying how she died but police are saying that the death is considered suspicious. the hotel room is sealed and homicide inspectors were on the scene. the body of 47-year-old colleen waterman of riverside county was found in the room yesterday by house keeping staff. >> i have no comment at this time. but thank you. >> reporter: bill and colleen waterman were reported missing on monday by their daughter. soon after the body was discovered the couple's car was found parked on highway 1 at devil's slide. there was no trace of the husband. >> we are still looking for billy waterman as a person of interest. as well as following up on other investigative leaders. when you find a dead body in a hotel room, a relatively young woman, she is only 47 years
6:05 pm
old, it is suspicious. and to be there alone, again, suspicious. so we would like to talk to mr. waterman. >> reporter: san mateo sheriff deputies flew alongside the cliff off highway 1 to search for waterman. investigators are convinced if he had jumped his body would not have hit the water because the slope area is graduated and the water too far out. hotel management said the couple had checked in earlier this week. other guests were shaken by the discovery. >> it is discomforting, you know. i'm from out of town, staying in a strange hotel. and the first person you see is a medical examiner. so... >> reporter: well, the mystery about what happened to this couple only deepens tonight because i'm told by the san mateo county sheriff's department they know when they found the car yesterday along the highway it had only been parked there for 20 minutes, allen. they know this because the deputy had just driven by that road and didn't see the car earlier. so what happened to the husband, did he drive it there,
6:06 pm
did he find another ride. a big question mark. >> i'm sure the engine was still warm. 20 minutes is not enough time for it to cool off. linda yee. thank you for the details. tonight san jose police hope that the public can help them find the driver in an horrific hit-and-run accident. they released the sketch of a man who hit a teenager with his car and dragged her. an update on the victim's condition. >> reporter: san jose police are hoping this new suspect sketch they just released today may prompt some new leads in the case. 18-year-old erika luna underwent surgery. luna was dragged about 1900 feet along fontaine road. now police have released this sketch of the possible suspect driver. described as 32 to 36 years old
6:07 pm
with a split mustache and black hair short on the top with faded sides. >> it is pretty emotional. i think people are pretty shocked about what happened. >> reporter: his front door faces the street where the crime occurred. he says all residents in this area are upset and are thinking of luna and her family. >> oh, god. i just pray for them. you know. try to support them as much as we can. you know. give them blessings and hopefully that they resolve it soon and whoever was responsible for this should turn themselves in. >> reporter: the signs of the crime are still fresh as police markings show the path of the tire tracks. >> there is always a feeling of sadness when another human being is hurt like that. >> i really feel too bad about this girl. and i hope finally find these people. >> reporter: the person depicted in this sketch was driving a silver or grey newer model suv which could have damaged to left front bumper
6:08 pm
and left wheel wells. and the family has raised $5000 in reward money to try to prompt anybody to come forward with information in this case and the san jose police officer's association is taking direct contributions to help the family with its medical bills. a lot of support, dana, here in san jose for this family and tremendous hope that somebody steps forward to crack the case. >> the people of the bay area are very generous. hopefully you're right that someone will have some info that will close this. mark sayer, thank you. we have just learned that police have arrested a suspect in connection with the shooting at an a.c. transit bus in richmond on wednesday night. sources tell cbs5 a tip led officers to richmond high school where they took a juvenile suspect into custody. that juvenile had a gun with him apparently at the time of the arrest on school campus. after that shooting buses traveling through north richmond do have some added protection. the alameda county sheriff's
6:09 pm
department was escalating buses after dark. they are concerned to drive the route due to concerns over safety. >> it is enough. no more. i have told the operators that we will not go through north richmond. >> the sheriff's department is passing the buses along in north richmond beginning 7:45 p.m. each night despite the arrest. the escorts beginning at the intersection of south market avenue and continue along the route until 6th street and mcdonald avenue. a man from oakland is now on america's most wanted list. 33-year-old shawn sullivan. he is accused of killing one of two men who confronted him about an outstanding debt at his house on outlook avenue. now that happened last november. after the shooting sullivan ran from the scene and has never been seen since. he is considered one of america's 15 most wanted men in the united states. it is a safety debate just won't go away. a heavily sensored government study that is raising new

6:14 pm
want. this is an extremely painful and difficult decision and right now given the university's financial situation we have a collective obligation to our students, to our faculty, and to the taxpayers of california that we are spending our resources wisely and that means in times like these we have to make some really tough calls. >> reporter: cutting baseball came as a shock to many cal fans that they claim raised millions of dollars to keep all sports. today they called the cuts cowardly. but cal says they had no choice. this business major's solution. >> baseball could make a lot of revenue. just has to advertise it different and make it bigger. >> when i came here i thought the varsity programs were like a really big deal and had a huge amount of funding and it is a large school. >> reporter: the decisions to retain the women's lacrosse and women's gymnastic programs keep cal in compliance with title 9 which meets the interests and abilities requirements of its female student body. bottom line for baseball and
6:15 pm
men's gymnastics, the funding fell millions of dollars short. >> baseball would have needed to raise 4, 5, six times as much money for them to have been able to show the same financial capacity that, for example, rugby showed us. >> reporter: cal will be the only division 1 school in the state not to field a baseball season. last year cal had nine players appear in the major leagues, the most notable jeff kent. 2000 national league mvp. and of course cal says if the funding should miraculously come in. we are talking about millions of dollars. yes, these programs will be saved. but bottom line, these two programs, baseball and men's gymnastics will not be saved for next season, dana, and a lot of the sports athletes now are already looking into transfer options because they want to play these sports, they want an education. they also wants to get out on the field and play or get in
6:16 pm
that gym. >> absolutely. i'm wondering if you're hearing on campus any blame against women's athletics in title 9 because of this? >> reporter: did not hear that. there was one interesting fact they did id say they were honor the existing scholarships for the students that came here for a baseball scholarship and gymnastics scholarship. i thought i would hear that. i was talking to both sexes. didn't hear that. men's polo said they have a lot of medals. they say that's not the reason. >> thank you very much. now kim is coming along in sports. she has an interesting angle on this story regarding cal's athletic arch rival stanford and how they want to help. we will have that coming up. >> all right. a great day to play some baseball. >> spring training for pitchers and catch es beginning in arizona for our giants and as on monday. and they will have full on sunshine highs in the mid-70s. we had highs today a good 3 to

6:42 pm
for johns hopkins says the study is being misincepted stating in the e-mail to cbs5 the labor tory's expertise is systems engineer not how something affects the human being so it would be outside of our expertise to say whether or not a radiation level is safe. one more reason to make him doubt. >> i do think it is time for an independent investigation. >> the tsa recently agreed to exempt all airline flight crews from the full body scanners but more and more passengers are going through them at last count 247 machines at 38 u.s. airports. >> highs today across the bay area all the way into the low 70s. warmer for your saturday. and then rain. we will pinpoint the day when you should expect it as eyewitness news continues right here on cbs5. ,,
