6:00 am
good morning. let's start with a live look outside this morning. the rush about to start. look at that. look at the fog returning to the bay area and, of course, on the right you have a live look at 880 in oakland. you know, the fog is beautiful but jaclyn, i think i'm more impressed with the light traffic. >> right now 880 looks pretty good. they are not dealing with that much of that fog but drivers headed along the golden gate bridge will definitely be dealing with that across the span and over at the bay bridge toll plaza, well, deing with delays. we have those metering lights on and traffic backed up well beyond the foot of the maze. it's backing up along the eastshore freeway. so give yourself some extra time as you are heading out the door this morning especially if you are going to be in areas with that fog. don't want to be in a rush trying to deal with this. but never stop on the freeway when it is foggy. very dangerous out there. heading over to the san mateo
6:01 am
bridge, taillights making their way westbound getting crowded along that stretch. we are still in the green tracking the travel time of 20 minutes. but it's likely to jump up here in the yellow any minute. eastbound direction flowing freely. that's a check of your traffic. over to you. how long is the fog going to stay around today? >> along the coast pretty much all the way into the early afternoon hours. it will move out of the bay a lot sooner than that by mid- morning. you can see the fog limiting visibility at the golden gate bridge. we have a west wind at 12. looking towards mount diablo 45 miles way so visibility is good there. but you can see that finger of fog that's surging in off the coast and wrapping around the rim of the bay right now. temperature-wise we are in the 40s in santa rosa with clear skies. it is clear but that cooler air
6:02 am
mass is not making it into the tri-valley today. 61 in livermore. the winds are all over the place. winds will be consistent later today southwest 10 to 15 miles per hour. the cooldown is again today. in fact, yesterday was 82 degrees in san francisco. today, a 17-degree drop. you will feel the difference. redwood city was at 93. 14 degrees cooler today. 13 degrees off that 95-degree mark in concord to 82. also 80s in san jose. so temperatures today across the coast in the 60s. 70s, 80s at the peninsula. 85 morgan hill. 80s out of the 90s into the east bay. a few 70s around walnut creek and concord. 60s, 70s north bay. hey, kenny, we got a change for the weekend. i'm going to talk about that at 18 minutes after the hour. >> thank you. right now in san francisco, an investigation is under way at civic center plaza after a man was shot and killed this morning. kpix 5's jackie ward is live in
6:03 am
san francisco with the details. >> reporter: we don't have much information but what police have confirmed for us is that a man in his 20s is dead after being shot sometime around 3 a.m. we spoke to a man who knew the victim. he says the victim's name was christian and he was homeless. he frequented the area of civic center plaza at night. his friend says he was trying to find a way to support his family. >> i heard the gunshot and then everybody jumped and then i was standing off into that direction already like i seen a friend kind of walking up out of that direction and, um, i heard the pop and everybody, like, kind of hit the ground and then i seen him. >> reporter: again, all we know is that this man was in his 20s and that he died after being shot. a lot of the people who knew him apparently are still on the scene here where his body was found. investigators tell us that they have a lot of good leads right
6:04 am
now a lot of information about who this shooter may be but they are not releasing details. in san francisco, jackie ward, kpix 5. >> right now investigators are on the scene of a deadly shooting in san jose. we're told one of the victims was shot by a police officer. it happened outside a home on laura valle lane. anne makovec is live with the latest. >> reporter: three people died here last night and investigators are still on the scene nine hours after the shooting. they got the call at 9 p.m. the people had heard shots being fired in this area. and when they got here, they found two people had been shot and killed. they then got into a standoff with the man that they believe was the shooter in this case. and they ended up shooting and killing him. so a lot of drama here when it comes to three people dying here on this street. the people who live around
6:05 am
here, this is the willow glen neighborhood and nice neighborhood in san jose. they were sheltering in place for several hours last night and you can see laura valle behind me is still closed off. no danger to the public this morning. but the investigation into the original two killings and then the officer-involved shooting are ongoing. the san jose police department and the santa clara county district attorney's office are investigating. the officer who fired the shot is on paid administrative leave. live in san jose, anne makovec, kpix 5. a man accused of killing a hayward police officer will face a judge this morning. mark estrada faces murder charges and pled not guilty. sergeant scott lunger was shot and killed three years ago a 15- year veteran of the police department. estrada opened fire for no reason, also exchanged gunfire with lunger's partner. he drove away and abandoned his truck in east oakland and showed up at a hospital with
6:06 am
gunshot wounds. during today's preliminary hearing, a judge will determine whether there is enough evidence to require a trial. today a vote is expected in the house on the latest version of the republican plan to repeal and replace obamacare. key gop leaders expressed confidence the measure has at least 216 "yes" votes to pass. possibly setting the stage for president trump's first legislative victory. >> already debated a large portion of this. finish off the rest of the debate and we'll take a vote. >> but house democrats blasted the decision to vote on the bill without a new score from the cbo. >> trumpcare means heart stopping premium increases for americans and anything from asthma to cancer and the list goes on. >> if all democrats oppose the bill as expected, republicans can only afford to lose 22 votes to get the measure to the senate. at last count cbs news has confirmed only 16 plan to vote no.
6:07 am
governor jerry brown is making a plea to the president about global warming. one of some democratic governors who sent letters to president trump urging him not to withdraw from the paris agreement. president trump is currently weighing whether to pull the u.s. out of the deal which was reached in 2015 to reduce greenhouse gases. in part, that letter reads: banking wor group plan to meet this morning in santa rosa to discuss state treasurer john chiang and the cannabis banking working group plan to meet this morning in santa rosa to discuss solutions for marijuana banking. organizers say the meeting was scheduled after president trump signaled a crackdown on marijuana. right now, state and federal laws have forced cannabis firms to deal entirely in cash which could create illegal activity. so leaders want to figure out how to provide better access to

in just a few minutes. committee is expected to approve tomorrow. preventing drones from five san francisco agencies could start flying drones under rules that a city committee is expected to approve tomorrow. preventing them from infringing on privacy rights is a key provision of the committee. the rules spell out how they can be used. the committee began studying it two years ago after one of the rec and parks department drones was stolen. an east bay bart station is about to get a makeover but that also means staggered closures in the area. jessica flores reports. >> reporter: this station here is 47 years old so you're gonna see some cracked pavement and sidewalks. it's definitely needing some tlc. the bart officials say it's in need of some major upgrades. crews will start working on this station in mid-may and if you are looking at the renderings now, the blue
6:13 am
section is what they will be working on essentially they are redesigning the layout so traffic can flow in and out of the station. crews will be working on the drop-off area, they will be putting in new pavement, more parking for motorcycles and they will also be adding more parking for 88 compliant vehicles. due to the change in layout the station will lose about 24 fee parking spaces. >> here at 3 p.m. it's full. so it's -- yeah. it's very crowded. but getting in and out isn't a problem. >> reporter: plus, bart officials say the upgrades will include rain gardens and that will capture some storm runoff. so what do you need to know if you actually go to this station in the morning? well, the two parking places next to the entrance here, deer hill road, those lots will have some staggered closures for the next eight months because that's how long it will take crews to perform the major
6:14 am
upgrades. live in lafayette, i'm jessica flores, kpix 5. 6:13. let's get another check on traffic and weather. we are going to start with the roads. what's going on there? we are actually going to start with the mass transit. >> for just a moment, we are dealing with some closure, oakland airport connector is closed out of service so if you transit bus number 73 that's what you'll need to use if you are making your way between oakland coliseum station and to the oakland airport. the rest of your mass transit running on time. we have 50 bart trains in service right now. but this weekend there is a track closure along bart and that is going to slow things down. this is all happening between fruitvale and lake merritt stations. the closure will be in effect saturday and sunday. and you can expect up to 40- minute delays. so bart advises you to plan accordingly. they will have a bus bridge in place for folks who need to
6:15 am
make their way between the two stations. we'll take it over to our san jose map and you can see traffic definitely starting to get a little slow along 101 if you are making your way from 680 on up towards 880 there. typical slowdowns westbound 237 out of milpitas as you make your approach towards zanker road and past that, it is smooth sailing over to 101. hat's a check of your traffic; over to you. >> thanks, jaclyn. we'll call on our live weather camera. taking a look at the golden gate bridge, we are totally socked in. it's the return of the low clouds and fog. [ foghorn ] >> yes! i love the sound of that horn. that means we are having a cooldown. give it to me one more time. [ foghorn ] >> thank you very much! all right. see that flag on the fly here? that's an indication we have a westerly wind at this hour. [ foghorn ] >> and that west wind is ushering cooler air mass in from the coast. look at the fog now beginning to "pushhhh" into the bay this morning. you see a layer lining the rim
6:16 am
of the bay. temperatures right now clear skies santa rosa 49. otherwise cooler air mass has not yet made it due east a good 40 miles so therefore livermore is at 61 degrees. it's in the 50s in oakland with the fog trying to make tracks towards the east bay. the winds now are blowing up to 10 in san francisco, 15 sfo. we have slighter winds inland. we'll have a southwest wind today 5 to 15 miles per hour. so here's what you need to know on this thursday. fog at the coast. sunshine inland for your cinco de mayo it will be sunny away from the beaches. cooler and breezy and an unsettled weather pattern for the weekend. let me explain. first off, high pressure right here it's beginning to lift to the north traverse to the east. as it does so it's allowing this area of low pressure to the north of us to surge down in a southerly direction by saturday. it's going to spark some thunderstorms in the high sierra. and a couple of showers want to move into our back door into the east bay. here's that fog deck next to
6:17 am
the coast. now, watch what happens friday morning at this time. it makes an intrusion a little bit further to the east and that's when the cooler air mass settles in. your friday will be partly sunny at the coast. meanwhile on saturday we start off with partly cloudy skies. we turn mostly cloudy and computer models suggest a slight chance of a light shower by saturday night into your sunday from that weak disturbance. that's going to scrape across the sierra nevada. meanwhile, today into the mid- 90s in the central valley. 70 monterey bay. 70 in the high sierra. still warm in redding. 6:10 official sunrise. you're seeing it in the east bay but as it begins to lift higher on the horizon, not much of a chance along the coast where we're sock in at 61 degrees in pacifica. temperatures coming down any where between 10 to 15 degrees today away from the bay in comparison to yesterday. in fact, it was 95 yesterday in concord. today 83. so you'll feel the difference. we're at 91 in san jose.
6:18 am
today 82 degrees. we were in the mid-90s in fairfield. today in the low 80s so still above average inland. but that cooler air mass will be noted on friday with an additional drop in the temperatures. look at the weekend, both days in the 60s. make it a great thursday. "may the fourth be with you." >> absolutely. roberta, thank you. a south bay classroom students are using their skills to build robots some of the best in the world. that's what makes palo alto high school this week's coolschools@kpix.com school. this week's "cool school." >> this is valley. he moves around, can carry gears from one place to another and maybe the coolest skill is climbing. it was designed in six weeks at the school's robotics lab. >> all the code is done by the students and every decision
6:19 am
about how to build it made by the students. >> reporter: they just returned from the robotics world championship in houston last month. although they didn't win the overall competition the team and valley made it to the semifinals. >> doing it yourself is a great feeling. >> reporter: valley did well and this team member won the dean's list award issued to only 10 students in the world. >> to win it and to be next to these amazing people is really amazing. >> reporter: there are 785 students85 students on the team and 40 were turned away. >> the number of students in the class goes up not down. >> reporter: the students come to the lab to become a part of a community like a family. >> this is like a second home to me in my opinion. i come here whenever i have any
6:20 am
free time after school when it's open. and i really think that i know what i want to do in the future. >> the community at first is very, very supportive and it's so amazing to be part of this organization and to do robotics and -- >> you can tell they really are a good team. they work well together. they're like family. most of their friends are on the team. and it's cool because the local community, businesses and corporations support them. >> you never know you might see local engineers come out of the school. >> what's cool about your school? email your nomination to us at coolschools@kpix.com a nd we may feature your school on the show. and i'm dennis o'donnell.

6:33 am
a man in his 20s is dead after an early-morning shooting. a witness tells us it happened around 3 a.m. and police aren't releasing much information right now. but a man who knew the victim says his name was christian and that he was homeless. the victim was allegedly a father and he was trying to find a way to provide for his family. one witness tells us what happened after he heard the gunshots. >> like i seen him stumbling out. he says, ah! you know, bleeding and really sad. like ... then everybody took off running and scattered. >> reporter: part of civic center plaza was closed for hours but it has since reopened. mcallister was never closed to traffic. the people who knew the victim were still here and gathered around where the body was found. so police, that's all we know from police right now. but they did say that they have a lot of good leads and investigators told us they have a general idea of who the shooter may be.
6:34 am

6:37 am
costing. >> what's cheaper? you know, getting someone into some safe space or having police, law enforcement officers, go out constantly to move them from one spot to another? >> sheehy believes that increased homelessness can be linked to property crimes like car break-ins and thefts. according to data from the sfpd overall crime fell 10% last year. property crime fell 11%. and car break-ins were down, as well. they were still high after jumping 31% from 2014 to 2015. police noted a 6% drop in 2016. still, there were just over 24,000 break-ins. mark leno is now entering the ring to become the city's next mayor. that's according to the "san francisco chronicle." the 65-year-old says he expects quite a bit of competition for the 2019 race. leno was a former san francisco supervisor who moved on to serve in the state assembly and senate.

6:39 am
will be working on. essentially, they're going to be redesigning the layout. parking layout is not the best so traffic can easily flow in and out of the station once they finish construction. crews will be working on the drop-off area with new pavement, more parking for motorcycles and more parking spaces for ada-compliant vehicles. and due to the change in the layout of the station, the station will lose some fee parking about two dozen spaces. >> if you come this early 6:00 you can get parking but if you try and come later, to drop the kids off at school and come, you're not going to get parking. >> reporter: officials say the upgrades will include rain gardens to capture storm runoff. now, all the upgrades mean that some parking here will have some staggered closures. the staggered closures will take effect in some of the parking in the entrances off of deer hill road here. so if you do use parking you just want to be cognizant of that because for the next eight months crews will be here working so staggered closures
6:40 am
on the parking areas off of deer hill road. live in lafayette, i'm jessica flores, kpix 5. new this morning, prince philip has announced he will no longer system new invitations for public appearances. prince philip has the support of the queen in his choice to decline invitations in autumn. he still plans to honor requests spanning the summer. but starting in the fall, prince philip will reportedly appear at public events only on occasion. later today, president trump will head to new york for the first time since taking office. while in the city he will meet privately with the prime minister of australia. mr. trump also plans to sign an executive order today that will make it easier for religious organizations to become more politically active. right now the u.s. tax code forbids nonprofit organizations from endorsing or opposing political candidates if they wish to remain tax-exempt. that comes as the house of representatives is expected to vote today on a bill to repeal
