[ cheering and applause ] >> reporter: the applause came from renters who call the late night vote a victory. two key tenant protection ordinances passed 6-5. tenant advocates even went on a five- day hunger strike before the city council vote. >> this is absolutely a historic moment for san jose, but we have had an apartment rent ordinance when it is controlled. this certainly strengthens those protections to tenants. >> reporter: the city's housing director says the ordinances particularly help those in affordable housing. among new requirements, landlords must present just cause or evidence before evicting tenants. this affects nearly 100,000 apartment units in san jose. most renters who showed up at city hall said they feared they would be kicked out to make room for tenants who could afford to pay more leaving them with nowhere to go in this
expensive housing market. the l effect ordinance requires landlords to give at least four months notice before redeveloping their buildings and they must help tenants with money to relocate. >> i thought they were a little too extreme. >> reporter: council member johnny ca mr. as voted against both measures along with the mayor. he believes the measures are too lenient on renters. >> i think actually they have a little too much power. somebody could break a faucet, complain and even if they're a very bad tenant, they could be stuck in a two year process to get them out. >> reporter: the ellis act ordinance applies to landlords of rent controlled property. there are 43,000 of them in the city. live in san jose betty yu, kpix5. owing the bay area - blown to bits. t about north korea's nuclear threat hit close to home tonight, the video showing the bay area being blown to bits. >> new information tonight about the deadly fresno
north korea.. nuclear missiles.. targeting what looks like the bay area. chilling propaganda video out of north korea, nuclear missiles targeting what looks like the bay area. the attack simulation video was shown during the country's party to celebrate its founder's birthday. the missile is launched and zeros in on what looks like downtown san francisco. es that can be we spoke to an expert who says there's no need to panic, but the military parades show off missiles that can be launched from land or at sea, which is alarming. >> which might be 100 miles off the coast of california. so they wouldn't really need an intercontinental ballistic missile to strike us. so what's adding up, of course,
is of great concern. >> he also says u.s. intelligence needs to keep a closer eye on north korea's weapons program or we could be caught off guard. tonight inside the mind of a suspected killer who fresno police say wanted to kill as many white men as possible, detectives say he referred to his 357 magnum revolver as eyeblack python and that he practiced voodoo rituals -- as a black python and that he practiced voodoo rituals and said he's muslim but prays to seven different guards. carter evans spoke to the family of one of the victims. >> this guy came behind him and he just shot him down like he was nothing. >> reporter: rosie wagner's 37- year-old son mark gassette was one of three killed during the shooting spree. this cell phone video appears to show the gunman running and opening fire. police say kory ali mohammad fired a total of 17 rounds.

arraignment on murder charges, but the da says it's too early to tell if he'll also be charged with hate crimes. tonight a homeless man is accused of stealing from kohl's and leading police on a car chase. police spotted the suspect carrying stolen goods at the cotington mall in santa rosa and the pursuit began. the suspect stole a honda accord, crashed off south wright road and landed upside down. the suspect tried to run, but police caught him. 41-year-old jesse dean green faces several charges including theft and hit and run. a wild police pursuit comes to a violent end in southern california. >> reporter: as lapd chased a suspected car thief from canoga park to chatsworth it got more and more dangerous with high speeds, a close call and then a
violent crash. the car crossed the center line on valley circle boulevard and slammed head on with that other car, a crash so forceful air bags deployed. officers drew their guns on the suspected thief and soon an innocent man and child quickly got out of the other car. you can see the man hold onto the boy's arm as they hurried away from the still developing and dangerous situation. police still pulled the suspect from the car -- police pulled the suspect from the car and handcuffed him on the ground. the father and boy were taken to the hospital and the freed and released seemingly okay. -- treated and released seemingly okay. the suspect also went to the hospital before he goes to jail. tonight we learn the feds knew about the problems at wells fargo years ago but did little about it. according to a new internal review, america's chief federal banking regulator knew of 700
whistleblower cases in 2010 about the company's sales practices, but there are no records showing that federal regulators forced the bank to investigate. wells fargo employees created about 2 million fake accounts to meet sales goals. so far wells fargo has not commented on that internal review. tonight we're getting a first look at some pretty impressive plans for san francisco's new transbay center including a massive mall. kpix5's phil matier gives us a tour. >> reporter: it is both the most ambitious and risky project that san francisco has seen in modern time, a $2.19 billion transit center complete with a 4 block down rooftop park and massive shopping mall and an underground train station all in the heart of the downtown. >> and this place will be happening. this is going to be a place that's happening, believe me. >> larger than union square, south park and yerba buena
combined. >> reporter: but wait, there's more. it hassist own suspension bridge to get -- has its own suspension bridge to get buses on and off from bay traffic, a 1/2 mile of jogging track, 13 different gardens and all that means lifting 690 trees from around the world up from 60 feet plus walkways to connect with neighboring towers, but like all things san francisco it comes with its measure of controversy. for starters the $700 million train station being built in the basement isn't likely to be connected with any railroad for years to come. >> before then we'll have buses running here. we'll have food courts kind of operating. >> reporter: part of it is paid for by the high rise as jaunt to the park where workers and -- rises adjacent to the park where workers and people who live here will be able to walk up to it or the rest of us can come up from a gondola from
mission street here. whatever the case it's going to be something. kpix5's phil matier in san francisco. back to you. >> pretty amazing. that stretch has been worked on for, what a decade now? >> it seems like it's been that long since we've had a dry week. steady rain in san francisco is happening now. the front is here and we're seeing steady rainfall from south city and daly city through san francisco across san pablo bay up toward richmond and concord and martinez and vallejo getting some showers, but that's it. the rain may be out of here by 1:00 or 2:00 in the morning and behind that we have a five straight mainly dry days. overnight tonight with cloud cover, 51 for vallejo, redwood city, fremont, san jose, mountain view, 52 or 53 degrees of our low pressure areas to the north brought a front through two nights ago, bringing another front tonight, but that low will move out and a ridge of high pressure will
move in. it's a simple process, but so elusive over the past couple months. this bridge will block the next several storms and keep us mainly dry. futurecast keeps clouds around overnight with scattered showers. we'll watch clouds go away by sunrise. afternoon we're sunny, friday sunny and warm, low 80s inland and cooler over the weekend but mainly dry. the ridge itself starting sunday into next week begins to retreat and pulls to the west that. will allow a few weak weather systems to sneak over the ridge into northern california. i believe the one that arrives on tuesday could give us a couple showers, no steady rainfall, just light showers. that's the only chance of rain for the next week. so quick moving showers moving through the bay area now. after that we are dry and mild. it will be nice. redwood city tomorrow 70, fremont 69, napa and vallejo 71 degrees. extended forecast, warmest day
friday, a couple low 80s away from the water, weekend cooler but dry and only one chance of rain next tuesday. otherwise we are drying out. over to sports and vern glenn. nothing dry here. hey, at one point russell westbrook took 12 straight shots, didn't pass it once at an okc loss in houston, but we're going to show you the warriors, not that and a not so secret weapon who was on fire tonight. nobody saw the javale mcgee show coming. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,>>
