this morning, it will burn off sooner. 60s, 70s near 80 degrees, and sunshine and warm weather will take us into the weekend. a little cooldown monday, then looks like again breezy and warmer weather will go into tuesday and wednesday of next week. >> thank you, steve. developing news from the east bay. the frightening high-speed chase that ended in a crash a short time ago. we're getting some important new information about that. it's a tense friday morning in concord. the threat that led to increased school security. >> two earthquakes yesterday lead to building inspections today at uc berkeley, when morning on 2 continues.

by his captors? the u.n. human rights council wants to investigate. in the meantime, nato's governing body is meeting to decide when how to end the campaign in libya. before the meeting the top commandered said said he'll recommend the operation end soon and nato secretary general is already looking to what will happen next. >> and now i call on all libyans to put aside their differences and work together to build a brighter future. >> that future is still uncertain. reuters reporting gaddafi's son is alive and on the run. rebel leaders say he'll be captured soon. as celebrations rock libya's streets, the bigger question is whether forces united in taking down gaddafi can come together and run a country. carol hahn, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you, carol. it's 8:16. this morning a judge in marin county will consider the latest requests from an accused serial killer. joseph naso will ask a judge to

defense will go into middle to end of next week. they have about 15 witnesses they'll call, including character witnesses, their own propofol expert, who has been in the court listening to dr. schaeffer the entire time, giving his testimony. the two experts, defense expert and prosecution star witness, are friends. so that brings a little extra drama to the courtroom as this court continues to go forward. also legal analysts tell you dr. schaeffer's testimony over the course of the last week has been nothing short of compelling. he on numerous occasions said dr. murray was egregious in his care of michael jackson and made significant mistakes. he counted 17 mistakes al told and he detailed them throughout this long, continuous process of questioning by the prosecution. again, it ended yesterday late in the afternoon. so the cross-examination will begin today, and the defense ace case could also begin today. everything goes as planned, which nothing has so far in this case, the jury could get
this case by the end of next week but most likely until the following week. adam housley, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you for the update. incredible video of a horrifying scene at a convenience store. the close call for a mother and her baby. >> also the talk that hit a dead end and the nba lockout is affecting more than just owners and players. >> traffic is moving along a little slowly on interstate 880, but i'll tell you why you may be surprised if you're going to the bay bridge. oo
