gunfire. the freeway is a major crime scene. traffic is a mess. allen martin is following that part of the wild story. >> a major melt down to say the least at this hour. we have seen the officers out there walking highway 4 collects the evidence. that means no traffic is getting through. all westbound lanes of 4 are currently blocked at love ridge road in pitsburg. traffic is being diverted off of the highway. the access roads just jammed up with traffic. let's go live to chopper 5, you can see the backup, stretching out there for miles. no true alternatives the this time. we have no estimate on when they will open the freeway. allen martin, kpix 5. this latest shoot out comes on the very day that the city of pittsburgh is ready to say enough of this. at least 20 shootings have occurred since november.
along highway 4 in pittsburgh and antioch anointers 80 from panol to richmond. the city council is voting tonight on crime stopping cameras. >> reporter: what timing, they want more eyes on this specifically using cameras. there are cameras throughout the the street and cameras behind me but they want cameras along the freeway entrances along ohio 4. case in point, because of the recent string of shootings. today makes seven freeway shootings along ohio 4 in the last year. last week a pregnant mother of 4 murdered when someone opened fire on highway 4 in pittsburgh. still no suspect. >> i can tell you that the last two shootings or murders that occurred in the city, the cameras were up in the locations that we were looking at i do think we would have captured the vehicle. >> the chief of police and mayor have a plan to deter the shooters. more cameras, specifically four
to six cameras along the highway. a hot topic tonight at the city council meeting. >> we will vote and say we want cameras. >> currently the city of pittsburgh has more than 100 cameras and every police officer has access to cameras using their smart phone. they can tap in and zoom in and see what is going on. the police chief says the highway needs added protection. they believe the shootings are not random and the victims targeted and that gang members are waging the war off city streets and onto the highway. >> you think they are shooting on the free ways because they know there aren't cameras. >> i think there is a lot of reasons. people don't hear gunshots and they stay in the car or they fall out of the car at 70 or 80 miles per hour and can be difficult for law enforcement to locate. >> the cameras will cost $100,000 but the city says it has the money.
and so where would this money come from, that one hundred thousand dollars? the police department says they have it. they would just reallocate the funding to put it towards the camera. we will be at the meeting and have the latest at 11:00. the big story new at five, a dog groomer that is supposed to take care of people's pets is under arrest accused of animal cruelty. we are at a pet smart store. andrea. >> reporter: liz, this happened around 5:15 yesterday when the san mateo police department showed up out here. now a man brought his three dachshunds to be groomed. but three minutes later the dachshund came out and having trouble breathing. it was taken to a vet at pet smart in san mateo. the groomer brought him to the doctor but it was too late. the dog had reached a point of
no return and the dog was dead within a few minutes. san mateo police determined with the vet here that the dog -- dog's injuries were due to the groomer's problems. the groomer's actions. they have arrested 38-year-old juan zarate for felony animal cruelty. they are looking into what happened. the results though are not yet available. some new developments in the ongoing sex scandal investigation that had the oakland police concerned. the internal affairs division place add 4th officer on administrative leave. the d.a. is investigating whether dozens of officers slept with this

of bay area backwards with beehives, this one is in george chavez's and he is concerned with the news out of concord. >> i wasn't sure what to think. i was surprised. >> reporter: there has never been a report of africanized bees so far north in the united states but maybe there still isn't. >> i will bet you a cup of coffee and a do nut it is not africanized. >> mike says he doesn't know. dna tests have to be made. >> bees can get problems if there are ants or whoever is manipulating the frame is doing a rough job and kills the bees. >> they went on the attack in concord killing two dogs and stinging several humans. it is unnerving to people who keep bees. >> i'm a neighbor and hearing this and i am thinking i don't want a beehive. >> the beekeeper will recognize it and not do it in the
conditions that were met. >> and considering the benefits of pollinating backwards and making honey and keeping the planet healthy, bees pollinate 89% of crops. there is a good argument for keeping backyard beehives. i mentioned that there is going to be dna test. they collected 50 of the dead bees and they are sending it off to the department of agricultural and it will take several weeks before we get the final answer. in danville for cbs news, i'm mike sugerman. kpix 5. it somehow looks natural in that getup. after a cool weekend it may be time to put away some of those layers. >> paul has more news on spring heat. >> things changing rapidly. in two or three days it will
