w everyone can afford to go organic. o organics, exclusively at safeway. waters. and not far away... a mystery ople to the now at noon a mysterious sheen in bay area waters and not far away, a mystery smell sending people to the hospital. anne makovec is reporting from vallejo where people were told to "shelter in place" for hours. >> reporter: you can't see this sheen that we have been talking about from the shore.
but it is out there in the bay. we don't know yet if it's some sort of oil or gas spill or if it's necessarily related to that noxious odor that sickened a lot of people here in vallejo last night. this is the mysterious sheen in the waters of the san pablo bay it's a mile long by 40 yards wide. thousands of people had to "shelter in place" last night when a strong gas odor enveloped vallejo. >> what if this stuff is really toxic and we find out later that it's going to affect us? >> reporter: around 1,000 calls came into 911 dispatch starting just after 7 p.m. >> call the police and they told me to evacuate the city or go into shelter. >> reporter: hundreds of people went to the hospital complaining of nausea and trouble breathing. >> smell was horrible. >> reporter: at around the same time the smell was reported, a
ferry spotted ashen in the water stretching from san pablo bay to the carquinez strait. the coast guard sent up its chopper this morning to investigate and several early vallejo ferries were canceled so the boats wouldn't spread the sheen leaving commuters in long lines for buses. >> my boss is pretty flexible, so i think it will be okay. >> reporter: now the coast guard is testing the water to see if they can figure out what it is and how it might be connected to last night's gassy odor but the fire department says there's no danger to the public. >> we have four gas detectors that we e to monitor the breathable atmosphere. we didn't pick up any unsafe readings anywhere throughout the city. >> reporter: but he isn't letting it go. >> i was very frustrated because they had no answers. i have no idea what my family was breathing. >> reporter: the good news is that the smell is gone here in vallejo today. investigators are looking at several refineries in the area but as of this morning, they have not officially reported
any troubles. live in vallejo, anne makevoc, kpix 5. berkeley police chief michael meehan has resigned after more than 6 years in the position. he has been recently criticized regarding his leadership, staffing level and low officer morale. captain andrew greenwood with the department 31 years is now acting chief. pacifica police are trying to find four men who forced their way into a home and held a family at gunpoint. it happened about 1:20 this morning on sky ridge drive. investigators say the masked men ransacked the home and stole money and personal property. one victim was struck in the face and was treated for a minor injury. the daughter of a homicide suspect fatally shot by police is now suing the city of san jose. kpix 5's maria medina asked our legal analyst to weigh in on the wrongful death lawsuit. >> my guess is that this is going to be a very difficult case for the family to win.
>> reporter: but retired judge and kpix 5 legal analyst ladoris cordell also said it's not impossible for richard jaquez's daughter to win the lawsuit she just filed against the city of san jose. >> there's some real issues in this case, problematic on both sides. >> reporter: last year, police defended their actions when they shot jaquez in the back as he fled from officers. >> the officers chasing the suspect and the suspect reaches for the waistband area. >> reporter: but 24 hours later police retracted that statement, a statement that could now come back to haunt them. >> that's a big issue because that sheds light on the credibility of the police officers. so, you know, a juror hearing that says, wait a minute, if they lied about that, maybe they are not credible about anything else. >> reporter: although it turns out jaquez didn't have any weapons, police did believe he was not only armed but dangerous. he was wanted in a cold-blooded murder caught on camera and they believe he was about to kill again when they tried to pull him over days late aer.
that's when he ran and was later shot by police. >> given that, the law tends to lean in favor of police officers when they fire even if the person isn't armed. it's what they reasonably believe. >> reporter: that man was apparently running toward a home with his back towards police when he was shot. >> if he is running toward a home he could use that gun to hurt people in the home. so their argument is, we shot because we wanted to keep him from doing harm to anyone else. >> reporter: turns out he was running toward his cousin's home when he was shot by police. a police spokesman directed our questions to the city attorney, who has yet to return our calls. at sjpd, maria medina, kpix 5. new at noon, the fbi just released an image of two men who they believe took the suitcase holding a bomb that didn't explode in new york city. the feds say the men were seen removing the bombs from a piece of luggage then leaving the device behind on saturday
night. they are being sought as witnesses, not suspects. meanwhile, kenneth craig tells us the key bombing suspect faces new federal charges today. >> reporter: the bomb that exploded in new york city saturday night was made from easy-to-fine materials bought on ebay. a new federal complaint shows ahmed khan rahami bought sit truck acid, conductor boards, electric igniters and ball bearings just this summer and citric acid. he now faces at least 10 federal charges including use of a weapon of mass destruction and bomb a public place. >> in the near future it is our intention to bring the department to federal district court for the southern district of northern which has jurisdiction over the manhattan neighborhood where more than 30 innocent people were wounded and countless others were gravely endangered by his bombs. >> reporter: prosecutors also found video that shows rahami shedding off what appears to be a pipe bomb in his backyard here in elizabeth, new jersey, earlier this month. investigators say it may have
been practiced for saturday's attacks in manhattan and new jersey. rahami, a u.s. citizen, born in afghanistan, made several trips to afghanistan and pakistan in recent years, where he married a woman. she eventually came to the united states but left in june. sources tell cbs news, she was scheduled to return this week and is cooperating with authorities. prosecutors say rahami was also carrying a journal when he was captured that included the message, death to your oppression. craig boswell, kpix 5. make fallout after two police involved shootings this week one in oklahoma, the other in north carolina. reporter don champion is in charlotte, where a night of rioting left a dozen police officers hurt. >> we're hoping for the best and preparing for the worst. >> reporter: police in charlotte, north carolina, say they are ready for more protests after a night of violence following the fatal
