contact that we can verify on october 2nd. her body was located in a wooded area in golden gate park chain of lakes park around noon time. she was found suffering from a gunshot wound and as of right now that is the listed cause of death. the investigators opened up a homicide investigation. later on it was discovered that was there was a second homicide that occurred in marrip county and investigators -- marin county and investigators noticed similarities in time, location and manner. we then were in contact with marin county sheriff's office they tracked their suspect to oregon via gps. we discovered oregon police department, portland, police department made an arrest of three individuals in that case and in connection with marin county's shootings, responded. some of the investigators responded to oregon to assist
marin county in the investigation of the homicide because of the similarities. there was evidence recovered connecting the suspect's of both murders the weapon used in the homicide was then tracked to an auto burglary that occurred here in san francisco. that auto burglary occurred near in a residential area near fisherman's wharf and that happened on september 30th in the evening hours ar 8:30 p.m. to thursday, the first of october, 4:45 a.m.. it was not reported until noon on the 1st of october the victim made a counter report at central station. the investigators immediately opened an investigation into the auto burglary and stolen gun
case. they found some video that did not show the auto burglary. we've been canvassing the area looking for additional video. we haven't been able to locate any. there was one location identified as having video. the premises appeared to be vacant. they were in contact with the owners and trying to secure the video. can you repeat what the location was? >> it was in a residential area near fisherman's wharf. >> and was it a civilian or a police officer. >> a civilian. >> so the weapon taken in the burglary was the same weapon used for the homicides and golden gate park? >> we believe so, yes. >> so again, tony, can you tell us what happened in terms of that burglary where the gun was
stolen again? just do that over for us . >> the vehicle, speaking to the owner, the vehicle owner believed he lockth vehicle. it appears he did not. he had the weapon secured in a lockbox that was stolen. >> a lockbox? >> correct. >> you said he was a civilian but he had a lockbox for his gun like law enforcement agents do. >> no. it was portable. it was secured inside the vehicle locked. >> so the car was parked where at fisherman's wharf? >> a residential area. >> are you charging the three suspects with the auto burglary? or are you -- >> at this point all charging decisions will be made by the prosecutor's office. we'll present our entire case to them and let them know what we have and what we've obtained
during interviews. >> so again, the gun stolen, was believed to be the gun used in both crimes or one ? >> at this point we believe the same weapon was used in both crimes. >> can you describe it. >> i don't want to get into too many particulars it is an open investigation involving two different counties. >> when will you present your evidence to the prosecutor? >> within the next 24 hours. >> you thought there was a connection between these. can you walk us through that. it was a hunch or you heard what happened to carter, did you say you wanted to keep following it and say portland, you want to come? >> all of the above. when the second homicide occurred, when they died from
gunshot wounds, there were too many similarities in the time and manner. . they will reach out and try to see the investigation. they got an early heads up in on things that point them in a direction that these things might be involved. >> and did you assess what was found inside the vehicle that may have linked the case to audrey kerry. >> some of the victim's camping . >> was there a reason why the gun was stolen on the 30th that the owner decided to wait. >> you're listening to a news conference getting new information in the death of 23-year-old audrey kerry found in golden gate park days before marin county hiker steve carter was found not far from the golden gate park site. they're talking about the gun used in both homicides.
they think it was tied to an auto burglary. investigators are in portland, oregon where the three suspects are right now. we're working on getting more information on exactly what they will be charged with, when they'll be brought down to the bay area we'll stay on top of the situation, bring you more coming up on the four. for now we're taking a short break. sure, tv has evolved over the years.

westerly. right now it is easterly for some. napa airport has turned west. system moving into the pacific northwest will help erode this high ridge of pressure, break it down slowly. but just enough to cool us down on saturday interesting, though, the remains of the hurricane came up from hawaii rocking all the way up into the gulf of alaska, gave juno record rain. very rare to see that happen in october. it can happen but usually never in october. a lot of the energy is moving as it does. it will bump the high down for a couple of days. this low gave us the thunderstorm last saturday night, early sunday, came down out of washington, oregon, went over us briefly. went flying by. gave rain to la, san diego, phoenix and tuscon. lots of reports in new mexico and texas. now it is backtracking it will go over very warm water and end up off of the southern california coast and move back in and gib them more rain. maybe next wednesday or thursday. for us it is an a dry forecast. just a little cooler, can't find
any rain as we talked about. here comes the low. we'll keep an eye on it for next week. we might get clouds out of it but i douth we get any rain. warm for most, near 90s for some, another day for 90s for inland temperatures. 60s, 70s, and 80s for others. these are well above average as you might imagine. most locations will be oip to 79 -- 70 to 79 and san jose, santa rosa, well above redwood city. even with sunshine it is not as warm as the past couple of days. cooler weather but okay for fleet week and the blue angels, the fog will retreat by noon. it does look warmer again, upper 80s and 90s by monday and tuesday. new names being thrown around in the race for speaker of the house. who republicans are pushing for and the california representative who is expressing interest. babies who are talked to from the time they're born

house. majority leader kevin mccarthy put the process in a tail spin when he withdrew his name to replace john boehner. he didn't have the votes to win. this morning before a meeting of the house leadership, mccarthy thinks ryan would make a great speaker. daniel webster of florida and jason chaffetz of utah are running but he would defer to ryan. >> if ryan got into the race, of course i would support him. he would be the kind of person i could get excited about. part of the reason i got into the race is because people like paul ryan weren't stepping up to do it. >> southern california congressman darryl isa announced he will throw his hat in the ring if ryan doesn't. >> i'm not a candidate for speaker, paul ryan is not a candidate for speaker. the difference is there is a resounding amount of support for paul ryan to agree to be the speaker and i'm part of that team that is trying to get him to be a speaker. all of us have to consider serving if paul .
