6:00 pm
francisco boulevard in san rafael is the suspect in a stabbing at a grocery store over the weekend. don knapp, last time i talked to you the girlfriend was in the hotel with him. >> reporter: that's still the case. i talked with margo rohrabacher and asked her if she was a hostage. we said we didn't know but we know she is lock in the hotel room with the man with the gun who is refusing to come out. so obviously they have to treat it has a hostage situation. the traffic mess is as a result of this fact that that gunman was over that freeway that leads to the richmond/san rafael bridge and there was a shot fired earlier today which of course messed up traffic going through the bridge. we are a block from the hotel now near the command center. police went to the extended stay hotel about 8:30 this morning looking for the suspect wanted for the stabbing at the united market on sunday. the suspect in the room with his girlfriend allegedly fired
6:01 pm
a shot from the room around 10:45 this morning. the chp had no recourse except then to shut down the freeway in front of the hotel room. we have a surveillance camera picture of the suspect taken at the market on sunday. police say this is the same man in the hotel room with the girlfriend now but they don't know the identity of the man. they said think didn't have an identification is what they are saying. 40 residents of the hotel were evacuated and police did send emergency calls to businesses in the neighborhood to let them know what was going on. there are at least 75 police officers maybe more. it's a huge police standoff and according to san rafael police spokeswoman margo rohrabacher. >> about 75 officers here now, there are s.w.a.t. teams throughout marin and also sonoma county and our hostage negotiators are speaking with him since the beginning of the incident. there is dialogue back and
6:02 pm
forth which is good. these events sometimes can take a long time and we want a peaceful resolution. >> reporter: police are going slow on this to try to end it peacefully. obviously this all stemming from what really was just a shoplifting incident on sunday. allen? >> don, as far as we know, the man in the room isn't making any demands that police have to meet? he is just refusing to come out? >> reporter: if he is, we're not hearing about them. obviously they are going to keep that part quiet from us. we can understand because they say they have been talking to him all day long. they have had phone and voice communication with him. they are apparently close enough to talk to him by voice. >> hopefully the lines of communication stay open and it gets resolved quickly. thank you, don knapp.
6:03 pm
in other news tonight, people in oakland are fighting to hold onto the headquarters of the mtc. that organization act as guardian and banker for local bridges and wants to move. but as phil matier shows us that plan is hitting more than one snag. phil. >> reporter: that's right, dana. today, as a matter of fact, the plan to relocate in this old postal building might have actually the a wrecking ball. here's -- might have actually hit a wrecking ball. here's the story. the metropolitan transportation commission which oversees toll collections on the state bay bridges is outgrowing its oakland offices so they want to partner up with three other agencies and buy this old san francisco post office building at a cost of $105 million. then spend another $75 million to fix it up for a total cost before $180 million. youall to be financed from borrowing from bridge tolls the same tolls that went up by a buck. >> this purchase decision went
6:04 pm
through a very lengthy analytical objective process. >> reporter: but after initial approval the plan hit a wall today when heavy-hitting east bay politicians activists and building unions all rose up to cry foul. instead, the oakland folks want them to build a new building in this empty lot in part to keep jobs in the downtown. >> i understand at least 60% of your employees come from oakland or the east bay. that in the long term is also going to have a negative impact. >> reporter: mtc's response? >> the cost of doing that is much more expensive than buying an existing structure. >> reporter: there's also a question about how much mtc is paying for the san francisco building. just a year and a half ago, the post office sold it for $60 million. mtc is now being asked to pay $105 million, a jump of over $50 million. >> it's obvious that the market has changed. >> reporter: there was also a
6:05 pm
letter by eight east bay state senators and assembly members who control a good deal of state money all of them questioning the use of toll money to bankroll the $180 million deal. what do you think is going on? >> it depends who you talk to. a lot of them are using that as, you know, on one side saying, it's an inappropriate use of funds but if you come to oakland it's okay. >> reporter: is it a smart move in these times? some of the criticism is toll money is being used as a bank, this is and expanding bureaucracy and this building looks fine. >> it's absolutely a smart move. when you talk about having four agencies that are all paying rent, agencies that are going to be around for decades and decades paying rent every month, buying in the long run is the better choice. >> reporter: well, faced with this kind of opposition, mtc has done a politically astute thing that we see bureaucracies do. they appointed six of their commissioners as a study group and they are going to report
6:06 pm
back in 60 days after reviewing the materials again and once again fry to make up their minds. dana? >> i'm guessing that 60 days is going to turn into another and they won't be moving anywhere anytime soon. >> reporter: i have a feeling you're right especially with this kind of heat coming in from sacramento. >> thank you, phil matier. bay area golfers aren't happy with the end to affordable links. you can play nine holes at the han cho dell pueblo golf course in san jose for about the price of a movie ticket and len ramirez with why the city is looking to get rid of it. >> reporter: the budget problems go on and on in san jose. the city is looking at another 70 to $100 million budget deficit again next year and the mayor says the city can no longer afford to pay the $2 million that it puts into this place every year. but the problem for the community is there's really no other place where they can get a good healthy golf experience for so little money.
6:07 pm
12-year-old richard espinosa has the swing. he perfected it with the help of the first tee program at the city's most affordable golf course, rancho del penally, the nine hole city course built 10 years ago lies in a low income neighborhood in east san jose. >> there's a lot of kids that go here. >> reporter: where greens fees are less than the price of a movie ticket. >> other courses are far from here and more expensive than this course and it's closer to my house. >> it's like our east side country club. everybody here knows everybody. >> reporter: ian joseph mccrae first started coming here when he was a kid. he now works at the course part time and stars on his city college golf team. >> it's the last working man's golf course around. >> reporter: but all that affordability comes at a price to the city. rancho del pueblo has never turned a profit. it lost $200,000 last year and costs the city about $2 million a year in debt payments. >> $2 million a year could keep open a couple of libraries, a whole fire station.
6:08 pm
>> reporter: now mayor reed is proposing to close the course, sell the land and possibly locate more than 500 homes on the property. >> should we close the golf course in order to save a library and community center? yes. >> reporter: but golfers are trying to save one of the few affordable recreation choices left. >> seniors use this golf course, beginners use this golf course. it's a community place. i think the community really needs to speak up about the value and the importance of this place in their lives. >> reporter: and we are back to our live picture now. there aren't many people interested in this driving range right now but actually there's a lot more people that would be here but they are at a community meeting right now at the mayfair community center where they are meeting with the city go over this proposal to close down the golf course so a lot of the people left for the meeting. they want to hear firsthand what the city has in mind. obviously they would like to keep this course open if possible. >> well, you know, as a
6:09 pm
golfer, len, i can tell you, a lot of these affordable places are disappearing one by one. >> reporter: that's right. this used to be way back when here in san jose, this used to be an 18-hole course. they cut it back to 9 holes about 10 years ago. and now can't even keep that flying. so it's getting to be kind of discouraging here in san jose with a lot of these things, the core services and then some of the amenities being cut, as well. >> let us know what happens at the meeting tonight. we know you'lll follow it up. >> reporter: sure. >> thanks, len. well, they struck again. the internet group anonymous hacked into another bart website and this time, things got personal with police. joe vazquez on this latest cyberattack. joe. >> reporter: last thursday, bart cut the cell phone service for their passengers as well as demonstrators who are trying to quash a protest. now the bart police are worried about their own safety. >> reporter: they have marched through the street.
6:10 pm
they have shut down train station. they have hacked bart's passenger information. now "anonymous" has hacked into the bart police union's website and posted online the personal information of more than 100 bart cops. >> i'm angry. i'm upset. these guys are a bunch of criminals. >> reporter: this officer says the fbi is now investigating. he says there are 250 members of his union, 102 of them got hacked, including sekhon himself. >> these officers now have their residences in some cases known to the public to criminals that they have arrested. to people they are going to come in contact with who may want retribution. >> reporter: bart's president of the board wants anyone upset about last week's cell phone decision to let bart know. they have received 9,000 e- mails already. what does this accomplish? they have gotten your riders information out there, now your police officers. what have they done. they have drawn attention to
6:11 pm
themselves and they are nobodies. they are anonymous. so that's what they have accomplished. they have hurt innocent people. they have exposed innocent people. we cannot stand for that. >> reporter: "anonymous" has called for another protest monday evening. will bart cut off cell service again? >> we haven't had any intelligence that there's any need to so practically i doubt it will happen but as the deputy said it's a tool. >> reporter: late this afternoon, i got an email directing me to an internet chat room where i met a person who says she is a woman from france and that she was responsible for today's hack attack. dana, that just illustrates how difficult this is. usually we wouldn't tell you about it until we verify it but in this case it's very difficult to pin down, you know, we're not sure who this person is or if she is who she says she is. we are not sure who conducted
6:12 pm
the attack. this woman said she did it because she sympathized with "anonymous" but not at their behest. >> the irony is that they remain "anonymous" and yet they are putting the lives of officers and their families, children, wives, spouses, out in the public and there is really very little that they can do to stop this at this point. >> reporter: right. and members of this group, remember, this started with a protest against the police officers as you might imagine, they believe that it's justified that their action is justified as they believe that obviously the police were in the wrong during those recent police shootings. >> that's taking it to a whole new level. joe vazquez, thank you. their 3-year-old was shot and killed but today, they said curfews and gang injunctions are not the answer. what victims and community leaders say it will take to make oakland safer. it offers a report that's supposed to put you at ease but it turns out carfax may not have the whole story.
6:13 pm

6:17 pm
>> injunctions and curfews will only bring the community more apart. >> reporter: it's a backlash to a proposed gang injunction, a citywide curfew and lawsuits against east and west oakland gangs. >> i talked to the president of the counselcy larry reid and we are going to really force the real debate. >> reporter: the debate is already heating up here. community activists joined the nava family today calling the proposed crackdown a knee-jerk reaction and saying there are better solutions, job training programs, strong educational city an community activities for young people. >> the real issue is lack of jobs, education, lack of activities for young people to engage in.

[ siren ] it's wednesday and it was a warm one today. >> not bad at all. in fact, it was near seasonal as far as the stats are concerned. this is our cbs 5 weather camera looking live from dublin towards diablo mountain range,
6:19 pm
upper 80s and low 90s. compare that now with this live camera looking out towards ocean beach where the temperatures are in the mid- to high 50s. robust winds out of the west up to 20 miles an hour and where the clouds are playing tag with the coast. they have now inundated the peninsula, working their way in a southerly fashion through woodside heading into the santa cruz mountains. you can see the bank of low clouds and fog traversing across the bay towards newark, as well. and where the clouds lingered today we were only in the 50s in pacifica, upper 60s across the bay into oakland. outside number was 90 degrees in fairfield back in through the vacaville area. these numbers near normal. but still a good 5 degrees below average in san jose in the santa clara valley. here's the deal. i'm going to start this pinpoint forecast with tonight. 10:00 watch the clock tick by. you can see the penetration of the clouds as they go past the bay through the bay into the east bay over the altamont pass into the delta. but wiping away, scouring out,

reports can omit important piece of information. >> reporter: brook never knows if his car will start. he purchased the 2006 car last year from a private certainly for $6,000. >> the guy told me there was no problem with the car. >> reporter: the seller showed him the carfax report which showed no history of damage or accident or so it seemed. two weeks later the sentra started acting up. >> there was some noise i heard some shaking. >> reporter: so he brought the vehicle to a mechanic who determined it had been in a major crash. a crash that actually happened back in march of 2010 nine months before the man purchased the sentra. a crash that did not show up on the carfax report. >> can't totally rely on it. >> reporter: carfax reports can omit problems and some
6:24 pm
unscrupulous car dealers take advantage of that. >> one problem that cropped up is that sometimes the car dealer say, look, here's the carfax, it's clean. use it as a selling tool. >> reporter: carfax tells consumerwatch it gathers information from thousands of sources including motor vehicle agencies, police, and auto auctions but it also admits some information can be missing. in fact, read the fine print. every carfax report says it's based on information supplied to carfax. the information about the nissan's crash did eventually show up in carfax's database 11 months after the accident. too late for the buyer but perhaps in time for other car buyers. >> not something i can count on. >> reporter: now, carfax is still investigating why the accident didn't show up on the first report. but consumer advocates suggest you first go to vehiclehistory.gov. this site will tell you whether the car has been totaled or salvaged and it's a lot more common than you might think. costs about $4.

6:37 pm
the negotiators say, or at least margo rohrbacher of the san rafael police says the only indication is that this is going to be a protracted incident. of course, we know it's been protracted all day long starting at 10:45 this morning when that man police are talking with fired a shot from that hotel room that overlooks the 580 roads that lead to and from the bridge in san rafael. that's been shut down by the chp for safety reasons although there is access from the sir francis drake side by san quentin. the man and woman in the room have no alternatives. they are surrounded by police officers. at least 75 cops including s.w.a.t. teams. negotiations are continuing so there is perhaps some hope this will be resolved peacefully. so far they are not moving very far. they will have protracted negotiations and they are not making progress. >> could be a long night. thank you. it's back to school time and tonight thousands of california college students are
