resolution to install cameras. some oakland police officers are accused of sexual misconduct with a teenaged girl. the police department confirms three officers are on paid leave and an investigation is under way. the department released a statement that reads in part, the oakland police department will not tolerate misconduct of any kind from its employees. the oakland police department holds all employees accountable for their actions on and off the duty. the identities of the accused officers are not being released at this time. a bizarre series of events in santa clara county has left two men dead. it began with the shooting death of one man in redwood estates in the hills south of los gatos. it ended with a deadly crash on the northbound highway 17 off- ramp to hamilton avenue in campbell. the victim was found dead in a home on madrone drive in redwood estates. investigators say that witnesses saw a getaway car and deputies soon caught up with it
on 17. the driver crashed into a wall in campbell. the passenger was injured and later died at the hospital. the driver ran but was caught by deputies. >> this is a see serious crime. two people -- this is a very serious crime. two people were killed. we don't know the association. high speeds down highway 17. it's very dangerous. they were a suspect in a potential suspect in a violent crime. >> sheriff's deputies are still trying to find the motive. they are not saying how the people involved are related. mora ga is making -- moraga is making sure the sinkhole doesn't trap other drivers. drivers have access to one lane in both directions and four-way stop in place at rheem and center street. but moraga is still scrambling to find the $3.5 million it needs to fix the sinkhole. san francisco crews are working to patch up a place where the ground gave way but this sinkhole nearly took a family with it.
they could only sit there as the car hovered above this 12x5-foot hole on mission near new montgomery street. the family was rescued with ropes. no injuries. repairs will take another couple days. the broken sewer main likely caused it. the drama is over for drivers in the area. one lane of traffic is open in each direction. people in the bay area are biking to work. it's the 22nd anniversary of "bike to work" day. 60,000 cyclists stop by energizer stations last year to gain some strength and free snacks and drinks. and all those perks are back at 400 sites across bay area counties and for those who have balance, there are happy hour specials during a trip back home later today. >> happy hour specials? getting on your bike? >> that doesn't sound like -- you can get a ticket for being intoxicated on your bike, not

you anything you didn't really know, right? it's not that new. >> well, actually -- >> reporter: you knew that the department had issues. >> it's the first -- no, actually. this is the first time that we have an independent third party coming in and saying, we have looked at how the department operates. and these are our findings. i think that's pretty significant. >> reporter: joe vazquez, kpix 5. >> san francisco's mayor weighed in as well in a statement. he says he is standing by his police chief. two alameda county sheriff's deputies have turned themselves in to face assault charges accused of beating a suspect in a san francisco alley after a high-speed chase across the bay bridge back in november. the suspect stanislas petrov suffered a concussion and broken hand. he is in custody on other charges, gun and drug charges. the deputies surrendered yesterday. bail is $140,000 each. donald trump and republican party leaders are set to begin meeting a little more than an hour from now.

state running neck and neck with trump in three key swing states in november. hena daniels, cbs news. >> trump will also sit down with rnc committee chair reince priebus and other key congressional leaders including senate majority leader mitch mcconnell. and that's the ballgame! the warriors advance! >> that's right. the warriors are moving on after an exciting win in oakland last night. they secured a spot in the nba's westerns conference finals. >> blue and gold fireworks lit up the sky above oracle arena shortly after last night's big win. the warriors will next face either san antonio or oklahoma city. >> think we'll have a harder time with san antonio so i'm hoping for okc but they are going to be tough, too. >> we're ready!! we're ready! >> individual tickets go on sale tomorrow for the western conference finals. time now 4:41. a local man hailed as a hero after a little boy goes

acres before firefighters knocked it down. it was along interstate 80 not far from the carquinez bridge. no homes were threatened. here's a look at what's left of the car that investigators say ignited that brush fire. it was completely destroyed. no injuries firefighters in ventura county are less worried about dry brush because they have gotten hundreds of goats to eat it. the grass isn't so green on hills like this. so before a tinderbox situation could unfold, fire crews commissioned 450 goats to clear away the brush. and now they are chewing up acre after acre for the next four to six weeks. the fire chief tells us why dry weather has them so anxious. >> and we still have this dead decadent brush as a result of the years of drought and with these dry grasses, now we have this ladder fuel, these fine flashy fuels that will carry the fire. >> ventura county received 15 inches of rain a year on
