scene with the latest on another officer-involved shooting. kiet, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the csi team stayed here overnight for the better part of 10 hours and they are pretty much done at this point. right now they are just waiting for daylight so they can take some more pictures of the scene. now, this all happened at around 7:00 last night. gilroy police got a call of a domestic violence incident on the 6800 block of fill grove drive. it's a violent event. several officers arrive at the apartment complex roughly the same time and there was a confrontation with the suspect in the carport area. here's gilroy police captain joseph to describe what happened next. >> they are in a carport area. they met basically halfway between the parking lot and the apartment. some interaction occurred where the officer felt that he needed to discharge his weapon. he fired at the suspect, struck him and the suspect went to the ground. >> reporter: firefighters and paramedics tried to save the man but he died at the scene. the officer who fired the shots
has been with the department for at least four years. we do not know the relationship between the suspect and woman in the apartment. that woman had some type of injuries but they are not life- threatening. not a lot of information at this point. police are expected to give us an update at 9 a.m. live in gilroy, kiet do, kpix 5. two of the officers involved in a recent deadly shooting in san francisco have been the targets of previous excessive force lawsuits. mario woods died earlier this month after five officers opened fire. court records show that in 2009, one of those officers shot two men who said they had their hands up. another was involved in an alleged choking in 2009 and an alleged beating in 2013. a teenaged girl was grazed by a bullet in san jose while trying to stop a car thief. it happened around 7:00 last night at winfield and coleman. 17-year-old reportedly had left her car with the keys inside to
talk to a friend in another vehicle. a man jumped in her car and started driving off. so she chased the car banged on window when it came to a stop and the suspect opened fire grazing her in the neck and the shoulder area. police later found the car abandoned. they are still looking for the suspect. new this morning, a hoverboard catches fire inside a home in brentwood. that's where jackie ward is standing by and has been talking with a young resident at the home. jackie. reporter: -- that caught fire and started this huge disaster here inside the home of the family actually still in the entryway. you can see it burned on one end. it started a fire last night. the batteries were charging when it caught fire and exploded. the family says flames grew quickly and got really big but thanks to a quick acting 15- year-old from freedom high, the house was saved from any major damage. we can't even see any from outside. it's all inside the living room, they say. aleah denny is one of the daughters in the family and
says they got this board a week ago. >> the fire looked like it was rising up the wall. i saw my little sister screaming for somebody to help her and she was standing right in front of it. when the fire was put out there was ash on the wall and fire damage. >> reporter: just a few days ago she got a concussion from using the hoverboard. it's stories like this that made amazon to stop selling hover boards as well as other retailers. 11 reports of them catching fire in 10 states so the consumer product safety commission is investigating now and major airlines like american, delta and united are banning them from their planes now. the fact that these batteries are catching fire is a major concern. this new policy will go into effect this week. so the family here actually has a second hoverboard. they say it didn't catch fire or explode but they are not taking any chances. they are getting rid of it. if you want to get it for someone this holiday weekend, it will cost you anywhere from
$200 to $700. live, jackie ward, kpix 5. >> that's a shame. i bought three for all of you guys and brought them right back to the stores because i don't want your houses to burn down. [ laughter ] >> thank you. >> diamonds do not explode. >> keep dreaming, honey. my son says there are so many students riding up and down the halls. you don't understand how many people come back with a broken arm the next day. how many students have had injuries? it takes a lot of balance. shifting gears, did you notice jackie is bundled up? it's chilly outside. not quite as cold as 24 hours ago but the temperature continues to plummet. it's 34 in santa rosa. 35 in concord. san francisco at 46. but you know what adds a capitol hill to the air? when the winds -- but now what adds a chill to the air? when the winds whip up. if it's in the 30s in the mountains and the wind is at 5,
it will feel colder. winds up to 26 miles per hour at the delta. oh, yeah that will wake you up. so look at the california satellite-radar. we have a clear slot, lots of sunshine today and also on your wednesday. but we're looking ahead towards your thursday increasing cloud cover. i'll time the rain when it will arrive on friday night and then again over the weekend. that's coming up at 18 minutes after the hour. >> let's check traffic right now. altamont pass is really our busiest spot this morning. we are seeing some delays westbound mostly originating 205 to 280. no accidents but a line of red on the sensors. past that it eases up. it will take about 17 minutes as you work your way westbound 580 from the altamont pass to here the dublin interchange where traffic is very light making that connector over to 680 in both directions.
south bay off to a good start. we are clocking in nice speeds northbound 101. 280 good towards the peninsula. on the guadalupe parkway right now north 87, 85 to 101 just an eight-minute ride and the golden gate bridge looks good. nice ride right now out of marin county into san francisco. time no 5:06. el nino will hit the homeless hard and starting today temporary shelters will open throughout san jose. last week the city council approved a measure to convert spaces into temporary housing. then it will consider expanding the program in the next meeting. in san francisco helping the homeless will be the focus of a new plan. the union square cares initiative's goal is educate people about the best way to help the homeless and curb homeless-related problems in a part of town that's crowded
with shoppers. tonight republican candidates for president will face off in a debate in las vegas. new polls show donald trump leading nationally but trailing senator cruz by 10 points in iowa. trump will be at center stage with cruz and ben carson on either side of him. the debate is the first since terrorism and national security became central issues. cruz has been focusing on them on the campaign trail. >> the enemy is radical islamic terrorism and it's trying to destroy our country and way of life. >> lately, cruz has taken pointed jabs at star in a rubio who appears to be -- at challenger marco rubio who appears to be his biggest challenger. chris christie will be on the main stage after increasing support in new hampshire. we want to take a closer look at tonight's big republican race. >> yeah. for that, we are joined by our washington insider marc sandalow. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. >> so marc, what should we be watching for in tonight's gop
debate? >> reporter: if you heard, foreign policy and national security are big. two things. trump and muslims, and president obama and syria. couple of questions i would ask is, donald trump since the beginning of this campaign said he would support whoever the republican nominee is. i would ask all the other republicans if donald trump is out there campaigning against muslims coming into the united states, do you campaign for him next fall? i wanted to know president obama says no ground troops in syria? do you support that? throw in questions about washington dysfunction and maybe about donald trump calling ted cruz a maniac, and we got a debate. >> yeah. we know chris christie is back in the a team. he will be in the debate tonight. what is else is difference tonight? >> reporter: he is in the a team. he hasn't made it to the big boys debate yet. so he is very excited to be there and i imagine he is going to try to take advantage of it. you also have ted cruz immediately to donald trump's right because ted cruz is
"surging" in the polls. here's the big difference. it's mid-december and the lead candidate is still donald trump! it's no longer something way out in the future when people start voting. 48 days until iowa caucuses. the time is getting there and the fact that donald trump is still far in the lead with voting about to happen, that's what's new. >> marc, is there anyone on that stage who might not make it to the next debate? >> reporter: as long as they got money, michelle, they are going to stick around. this is causing some insiders to panic because they still -- the thought is, with donald trump and ben carson polling about 50% of the republican vote, the conventional wisdom is they may not last. this thing is in such turmoil, it could go all the way down to the convention! republicans had hoped this would settle itself early and people could galvanize around one candidate. it doesn't look like that's going to happen. >> that caucus is coming up in february.
they still have 10 people on the podium. hard to believe. marc sandalow live in washington, dc, thank you. while you sit for hours in traffic, many drivers are breaking the rules. the shocking number of people out there riding single in the carpool lane. >> and shopping with the jocks. next, the raiders make bay area kids' holiday wishes come true with a special shopping spree. >> okay. that's on my bucket list. okay? that's on my christmas list! good morning, everybody! it's going to be sunny today but we have a series of storms heading this way and we'll track them together. >> and lots of company as you work your way along the altamont pass. we'll have a complete look at traffic and weather coming right up.

>> to the right! >> these are people who have probably been doing it for months or years. >> catching the violators is a challenge because traffic and carpool lanes tends to move faster than the other lanes. a carpool lane violation ticket comes with a minimum of a $490 fine. it doesn't pay to cheat. >> were risk it? 4940 -- why risk it? $490? >> sometimes you're in a hurry and you let it go. but eventually they will catch. >> you cheaters never prosper. just saying. the whole purpose of the carpool lane is to share the ride. it's a good time to make friends at work. maybe you can ride to work together, save gas and money and time. all right. jumping to the freeways, not saving much time through the altamont pass this morning. we have some brake lights westbound 580 making that connector over to the dublin interchange. but no accidents or incidents that's the good news. just slow-and-go conditions coming away from tracy west

on two starting pitchers. last week, jeff samardzija. yesterday johnny cueto. six-year deal worth $130 million and he can opt out after the second year. trust me, folks. he won't. cueto won 92 games in over 7 see sounds with the reds but -- seasons with the reds but the trade last year gave johnny stat a bit of a split personality. >> here's johnny! >> royals fans were probably racking the same way when he struggled after the trade from the reds. in kansas city his earned run average nearly doubled. the giants hope a return to the national league is what the doctor ordered. competed rose's request to be reinstated by major league baseball was denied by commissioner rob manfred yesterday. rose still bets on baseball currently even though he does it legally. rose will never work for a team but could still be voted into the hall of fame if he is one day put on the ballot. >> i think that he has
demonstrated when he was an active player and manager at least the manager by his own admission that he bet on baseball and i don't think that he has demonstrated to me an ability to stay away from that type of activity if were let back in the game. >> 1989 is when pete rose was banned from baseball. if he hasn't done the crime for that, i don't know who has. i'm dennis o'donnell, see you tonight. houston at denver. all right. check out a fine dunk by the nuggets will barden, 1, 2, 3, boom a little tomahawk baseline jam. and a very nice one at that. denver beat the rockets last night, one more time. and police in gilroy responding to a domestic violence call have shot and killed that suspect dead. >> reporter: this may be on your kids' christmas lists.

bay bridge. metering lights are on. heads up we are getting reports of a broken-down vehicle midspan causing early drace there. look out for a vehicle fire on the right shoulder past penngrove. firefighters are blocking the left lane as you work your way through there. southbound 680 accident at bollinger canyon road on the right side. no injuries reported. westbound 580 at 680, three car crash reported. it was blocking lanes. they now pushed it over to the right side of the roadway. busy anyway as you work your way westbound. 18 minutes from the altamont pass to 680 and a lot of brake lights westbound out of tracy. we'll take a look at the san mateo bridge coming up. san jose police hope this surveillance video will lead to an arrest in the burglary of a nonprofit group. the bay area children's association says a man broke

attempt to stimulate the economy. now 7 years later the economy is growing slowly but steadily at 2.25% annualized, unemployment is 5% so the fed believes now is the time to normalize policy. as you said it's over 9 years since the fed raised rates. 7 years at this level. probably a good time to start saying, let's get going. >> how will higher rates impact consumers? >> reporter: well, i feel so good because finally favors will be rewarded! you know that 0.001% you have been getting in your checking and savings? it's going to go up very slightly. savers are the winners in a rising interest rate environments. borrowers could see increased costs whether it's an adjustable rate mortgage, credit card or auto loan. remember that longer term fixed rate mortgages they are not linked to this exact rate that the fed controls. but they are also expected to rise at a slower pace. investors, i hate to tell you, we are entering uncharted and
choppy waters! historically stocks have dipped after the first increase. but they usually regain their upward momentum if the economy grows and inflation doesn't rise "too much." that all seems good but we have never been through this kind of periods where rates have been this low for this long during this "emergency" period. bond prices usually drop when interest rates rise. that doesn't mean sell all your bond funds. stick to your game plans. make them shorter. stick to high quality bonds. to navigate the fed actions go to jillonmoney.com. >> hey, jill, when would the rate hike go into effect? >> immediately. so literally tomorrow. >> oh, wow. >> reporter: at 2:00 eastern time. they will start the mechanism to begin the process. it won't feel like anything seismic but it's going to be really interesting. janet yellen will have a press conference after. what she said could impact
markets. >> jill schlesinger, thank you. 5:41. a small dog attacked by a coyote and seriously injured while playing at a local park. next we'll talk about his unlikely hero. >> and a live look out at 880. there are some trouble spots this morning on the freeways. gianna will be back to let us know where they are. on his legendary quest jack went looking for a man. known simply as...the onion whisperer. the onion said...

5:44 on this tuesday. looking towards levi's stadium as you look at that stadium, we are 54 days away from super bowl 50 played in the santa clara valley and will be seen right here on kpix 5 on february 7. time is 5:44. it was a vicious attack in a san francisco park. a wild coyote seriously injured a woman's dachshund saturday morning at stern grove.
eva christiansen says the coyote had her dog jasmine in its mouth. jasmine was bleeding and clearly injured when another pet owner and her dog sprung into action. >> i see the woman and i screamed, the coyote's got your dog. and at that point, we're both standing there, like, what do we do? so i said to my dogs, mia, get the coyote! and she ran up the hill and confronted the coyote and the coyote dropped the dog and then mia came running back to me like it was rin tin tin on command. it was amazing! she is a hero. >> that's a good dog. but jasmine has neck injuries, puncture wounds. but only spent one day in the hospital. she is expected to recover. big changes may be coming to ridesharing services like uber and lyft that could enable workers to unionize. this week, the city of seattle is moving to allow uber drivers to unionize and in california, a new bill would allow on demand workers to get together and negotiate with their boss.
