so we're going to be getting spotty rain through the day tomorrow and into the afternoon. possibility of thunderstorms as well as chilly conditions. temperatures are staying in the 50s right now because of the cloud cover, but we're going to see partly cloudy skies out there tomorrow, and the thunderstorm cells are going to develop here and there. with the flip of a switch tonight, the lights on the bridge are back on. the lights went out around 7:30 tonight. and caltrans officials simply flipped a switch and the lights were back on. san jose police are investigating a teenager shot and killed earlier today. this marks that city's 44th homicide this year. neighbors heard pop, possibly the sound of gunshots, before they saw the van and the teen lying in the street. alicia reed has the details.
>> reporter: this suv is shoved up on the curb and appears to have been in an accident. when paramedics arrived at fairhaven drive this afternoon, there was a body laying next to it, the body of a boy they believed to be only 16. police are trying to figure out how the two are connected. >> where the truck is positioned, it cries out for investigation. we have a dead body next to it. nobody would park it that way. >> reporter: neighbors called police when they heard the crash. but sergeant dwyer says they may have mistaken gun fire for a collision. >> people thought they heard a car accident. they looked out the window, they saw a truck that was up on the curb. that's the call we responded to. >> reporter: neighbors in the middle class neighborhood say they're never seen anything like
this in your area. >> probably a targeted incident. but we don't have any kind of problems in this neighborhood. police arrest multiple suspects and four females in connection with the death of a man who was one of two people found bound and gagged on a san francisco street. police are not saying much on the relationship between the suspect and the victims, only that there was some kind of extensive relationship. there are many unanswered questions. police revealed some details at a news conference earlier this evening. >> the motive for the attack is under investigation. i won't be able to get into the details as far as what led to the attack. i can say that the male victim appeared to have blunt force trauma and gunshot wounds to the

city hall tuesday night the violence is the result of a bloody cash between the taliban and deville gangs. this is video of authorities raiding a gang member's home. the three police departments joined forces last month to become "separation smart" short for strategic multiagency response team. the true test came two weeks ago when police responded to another shooting in east palo alto. >> we still haven't determined if it was gang-related, probably not. but because we thought it may be, our detectives responded to east palo alto, detectives from menloe park responded, officers from palo alto pd responded. that gave us twice the resources we usually have to find out if this is gang-related. >> reporter: operation cease-fire is another program
being implemented to stop the gang violence. it's been in place for years and is designed to encourage gang members to meet with community leaders such as pastors and encourage them to turn their life around. san francisco police taking full advantage of their new crime-fighting tool, asking for the public's help in a robbery case where this video may provide the answers that lead them to the suspects. and police in pleasant hill still trying to figure out who planted a pipe bomb on the campus of an elementary school. look at you guys with your fancy-schmancy

think it's a copy cat. >> reporter: police were able to dismantle the pipe bomb found on monday. they have not made arrests in the current case. those who live here are hopeful for a break. >> hopefully they'll get them for about 10 years. don't slap them on the wrist. maybe they can take their parents with them. >> reporter: officers would not go into too much detail with me on why they don't think these cases are related right now. they did say whoever tried to set off the bomb outside the elementary school was certainly looking to do some harm. north korea 's launch of a long-range missile and satellite earlier today sparked out rage. the wheelhouse calls it a highly provocative act.
