drizzle will remain through the morning and the low clouds will stick to the coast the rest of the day. around the bay, we'll have the low clouds. the patchy fog. mostly sunny for the afternoon in the inland areas. partly cloudy skies to start the day. mostly sunny for the afternoon. temperatures will continue to cool. outside the doors, 59 for you. 60 in walnut creek. 59 in oakland. 54 in novato. 58 in san francisco. low 60s along the peninsula. sfo, redwood city, down into mountain view and 58 for san jose. afternoon highs for today along the coast, we remain the status quo cloudy and cool for you pacifica. around the bay very mild. 72 in hayward. 77 red wad city, 64 san francisco. inland areas, upper 60s, 70. 87 in antioch. coming up i will show you when i expect the clouds to clear and a look at the extended forecast into the weekend. good morning, sal. good morning. we still have slow traffic all
over the place i'm gonna start out with the 280 freeway southbound getting up to highway 17. you can see traffic is a little bit of slow here but i would say this is a better route than 101. as we look at the map, 101 is slow to the capitol expressway and slows into sunnyvale. 280 and 85 are doing much better. there's slow traffic on both of those other freeways they are better than 101. bay bridge toll plaza, 25- minute drive into san francisco. once you get on the san francisco side, things improve on san francisco freeways. 7:03. let's go back to the desk. all right. thank you, sal. the city of antioch is on edge after 14 people were shot over a two-week period. the latest violence happened yesterday, a double shooting at an apartment complex off delta fair boulevard near highway 4. alex savidge is in antioch where city leaders are -- are
promising change. what are the change? >> reporter: officers will potentially be working overtime to deal with this spike in crime. a total of 14 people shot in the past two weeks. the latest shooting happened here at this apartment complex just across the street from us here on delta fair boulevard off summersville road. this is where a 23-year-old man was shot to death yesterday afternoon and a second man who was -- who is 28 years old was wounded by that gunfire. it's unclear why those young men were targeted. but this shooting was the latest in the series of violent crimes in antioch. last week an 11-year-old boy was wounded in a shooting. before that, in late june, seven people were injured when someone opened fire at a house party. five people have been killed in the city so far this year. in response police are planning to launch a violent crime suppression team. many are concerned about the ongoing violence but they know the police department is short
handed. >> honestly, i think it's really sad. the cops are so overwhelmed. they do the best they can with the resources they have. >> reporter: and the lack of resources, the chief says, is hampering the efforts to control the wave of violence. the city has fewer officers than other cities of similar size. in a recent facebook message to the community about the wave of violence, the chief said many of the shootings recently are either gang or drug-related and oftentimes the victims are uncooperative. even more frustrating for the chief, violent crime was down almost 20% during the first half of this year and then over the past couple of weeks, the city saw this surge in shootings. there is a possibility the city of antioch will look for help from outside law enforcement agencies. we're live this morning in antioch, alex savidge, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you, alex. a suspected prostitute in santa cruz is behind bars
accused of murder. police call the suspect a high- end prostitute who may have drugged and killed two men in two different states. one of the alleged victims was a silicon valley engineer who was a married father of five. coming up at 7:45, the criminal case investigators are comparing to a crime novel. 7:06. san francisco police searching for a group of men who robbed a teenager at a popular tourist attraction. it happened just outside of coit tower monday afternoon. police say six men confronted a 16-year-old boy shoving him to the ground and stealing his cell phone and wallet. now, coit tower was open for business at the time. the police hope witnesses will come forward. >> maybe somebody captured something on their cell phone and they aren't aware of it. so we would definitely like to hear from the public. >> police say the victim tried to grab one of the suspecters he was punched in the head. but was not seriously hurt. so far, there's no description
of those suspects. demonstrate. demonstrators in sonoma county protesting about the andy lopez case are planning their next protest. [chanting] >> yesterday a march and rally was held outside of the district attorney general. many demanded she resign when she announced she would not file charges against the deputy who shot and killed andy lopez, carrying a bb gun that looked like an assault rifle. the deputy said lopes ignored -- lopez ignored orders to put the gun down. >> i think he should have been guilty. but they are trying to take it off gelhaus and put it off on andy. >> it's very violating when you live in a city where you cannot trust your police officers. >> the next rally, saturday afternoon in santa rosa. they still have not reached
a verdict but jurors in the bryan stow trial did send a question to the judge in los angeles. the judge is refusing to reveal exactly what the jury asked him yesterday. the judge ordered the lawyers not to say anything about the question to the news media. the jury is trying to determine whether the dodgers are responsible for the beating of bryan stow outside of dodger stadium in 2011. stow's lawyers contend poor stadium security played a role in the brutal attack. the planned bart extension to the south bay has caused a rif between the city of milpitas and the transportation authority. milpitas says it's unclear for the vta to blame the city for construction delays following a court ruling sighting with milpitas -- siding with milpitas. the city opposed closing down all traffic at dixon landing road for eight months to allow the work on the b.a.r.t. extension. the vta first announced the opposition would delay completion of the san jose
extension by a year. but the vta has backtracked saying the project will still be finished on time by 2017. well, there may be new hope for low income families in palo alto who want to keep living at a mobile park. the developer has withdrawn from wanting to turn that park into luxury apartments. a group says now there is a chance to save the mobile home park and possibly buy the property. however, an assistant city attorney says he thinks the process to close that mobile home park will continue. a $500 penalty a day penalty for people who waste water. that's what state water officials are considering during the drought. ktvu's brian flores joining us live in alameda. tell us why is the state acting now. >> reporter: well, the according to the state, dave, that local water agency and consumers are not doing enough
to conserve. we're live where this homeowner has decided to water their lawn. if the regulations go in place, they can do that. but it's going to cost hundreds of dollars if these regulations are approved. now, next week, state water resources control board will consider issuing fines up to $500 a day for outdoor water wasters. this would only affect washing your car without a nozzle, overwatering your lawn or hosing down your sidewalk. in the past, they would be considered infractions and law enforcement could cite you. this all comes about because the state feels -- what they are saying it's not enough, people who have volunteering. others remember the drought back in the '90s and say this is cyclical but many are keeping an eye on water wasting. >> i live across the street from multiunits. i know the sprinklerheads are
broken. so there's water spraying out on the sidewalk. i haven't called anybody but it but it is the kind of think you look at and there's water pouring out on the sidewalk. that's not okay. >> reporter: talking about that, the boston globe reports this morning that the state has fielded 6,000 reports of water wasting. that's actually up 20 times in the last year. just a couple of days ago, we reported that east bay m.u.d. has seen an increase in calls also. they used to get two or three calls of water wasters per quarter, now it's two or three a day. governor brown calling for 20% reduction in water usage. at this point, the state has conserved 5%. if the proposal is approved, it would take affect immediately and would last for nine months. brian flores, ktvu channel 2 news. >> wow. all right. some avocado growers taking drastic action because of the drought. one farmer in san luis obispo county is putting back his trees. he's painting what's left of them white to protect them from
the sun. it's called stumping. the trees are still alive but they will need a lot less water to survive for the next few months. those trees will be able to produce avocados again in about one or two years. now, this grower says he's trucked in water to support his grow for the past two years. he just can't afford to do it again. all right. 7:12. we're continuing to monitor a deadly crash that's still blocking a busy road in san jose. coming up at 7:30, how it led to another crash involving a police car. plus, was recently released from prison. this morning, a south bay man is back in jail. latest run-in with the law and some pretty strong words from one of his victims. good morning. we're still looking at a nice commute in many areas. it's kind of slower in san jose as you can see. 280 we'll talk about that and your trip into the silicon valley. outside our course this morning, joined by -- doors this morning, joined by patchy

weeks ago. >> it's a shame we have to be here again. there's no remorse. he didn't learn anything from going to prison. >> shiro's lawyer refused to comment on the case. he's being held in santa clara county jail. you've got a chance today to see some famous military vehicles before they are auctioned off. a collection of military memorabilia will be up for self in portola -- up for sale in portola valley. it includes several vehicles used in past wars. the prices range from $10,000 to $1 million. you can see the vehicles at auctionamerica.com. it is at 499 old spanish trail in portola valley. the auction is on friday and saturday. spirit airlines wants to hear exactly what travelers hate about it. the airline will credit

uncooperative. violent crime was down almost 20% during the first half of the year here in antioch. but then they saw this surge in shootings over the past few weeks. it's possible that the city of antioch may get some help from some outside law enforcement agencies to deal with this ongoing problem. we're live this morning in antioch, alex savidge, ktvu channel 2 news. san francisco, police busy searching for a group of men who robbed a teenager at a popular tourist attraction. it happened monday afternoon just outside of coit tower. police say six men shoved a 16- year-old boy to the ground and stole his cell phone and his wallet. coit tower was opened for business at the time and police hope witnesses will come forward. >> maybe somebody captured something on their cell phone and they aren't aware of it. we would definitely like to hear from the public. >> police say the young victim actually tried to grab one of the attackers but he was punched in the head. he was not seriously hurt.
