7:03 am
downtown. and then 101 and 85 are now beginning to fill in. as we look at the nimitz freeway, we already have some slowing between 238 and down to dakota road, which is not unusual. livermore valley looks good. westbound 580. 680 slows as you leave pleasanton to fremont. 7:03. back to the desk. breaking news in the east bay. there was an armed robbery at a casino in pacheco and the investigation is underway right now. the contra costa sheriff's department said it happened about 4:45 this morning at the california grand casino on contra costa boulevard. no juans hurt. they don't have a good description of the suspect at this point, but they are checking surveillance video. now, we do have a ktvu crew heading there now. they are going to bring you live updates as soon as we get them in. new this morning san francisco police have just re- opened the busy thoroughfare after an overnight homicide

7:05 am
some parked cars out here. that's where the crime scene technicians have laid down evidence markers. they took several photos of the vehicles on this street. those vehicles are still there. they were spending a lot of time around that black suv. you might be able to get a better look at it. but at this point we haven't heard anything from police about whether or not they have identified a suspect. but for people living, walking, driving through this area, the street is back open. larkin street back open from turing to deadly after being shut down several hours overnight. in the east bay this morning police are looking for gunman responsible in a dead lie shooting at a massage parlor in pittsburg. this happened last night on atlantic avenue. police say the gun man entered the store, demanded money and that led to a fight between the suspect and several workers. investigators say during the fight the gunman shot one of the employees, who died at the scene. the suspect has not been caught by police at this hour. time now 7:05. san jose police are investigating the deaths of two

7:09 am
curry was after the game. his head in his hands there as he left the court. usually, he is more than willing to talk to the media after the game, but in this case he chose to not say anything and speak publicly after the game. he simply headed off to the team bus and he is going to be having that mri today in the bay area. hopefully, we will find out more, how serious this is. >> and you mentioned a freak thing. another player just slipped? >> just before steph went down, another warriors player fell in front, almost in the same spot. >> one of the rockets players. he fell down and slipped just before that and kind of slid along that portion of the court. so instantly there was this wet spot that there was no chance to clean it up, obviously. it was in the middle of play. right that moment steph curry came through there, defending trevor ariza. yeah, just a bizarre, a freak set of circumstances there, and he tweaked that knee in the process. >> all right. thinking good thoughts. >> we are staying on it as well. we will continue to follow this. as soon as the warriors release
