>> the golden state warriors continue to prove they're the best in basketball even without one of their best players. >> and would you consider moving out of the bay area in the new poll showing how many people considering taking off and the reason why. good afternoon, everyone. i'm gasia mikaelian. in antioch a woman was shot and killed and a man was wounded inside a quick stop convenience store. >> and the scene is very active still. witnesses are even starting to speak out. >> reporter: that's right, it's an active crime scene out here after a shooting left a woman dead and a store clerk wounded. it started about 7:10 this morning when a man and woman got into an argument inside this quick stop.
12:01 pm
witnesses say that's when the clerk tried intervening but police say the 34-year-old suspect pulled out a gun and opened fire, killing his 27- year-old girlfriend and wounding the clerk in the arm. the woman died at the scene. we spoke with a neighbor of the clerk who tried to break up the domestic dispute. >> my neighbor was working his normal shift and happened to witness a domestic, and he stepped -- you know, tried to help the woman. the woman was shot by her partner and he was shot in between that chaos. >> reporter: a short time later the suspect showed up at the antioch police department and he was taken into custody. police say they are still in the preliminary stages of the investigation and a motive is not known, and they have not identified the suspect or victim, and her body is still at the scene.
12:02 pm
>> the suspected shooter showed up at the police station? was he turning himself in? >> reporter: that's our best speculation at this point. we believe he possibly turned himself in and now he's being questioned by investigators. >> we don't know what previous problems he and the woman may have had? >> reporter: unclear if they had any prior disputes or issues. >> all right, thank you. san francisco voters will soon be able to decide if independent investigations will be conducted into police shootings in that city. if voters pass it in june, all police shootings would be investigated by san francisco police watchdog agency and require that the police department cooperate with the investigation. this is a response to recent incidents that have plagued the sfpd. over the past five years there have been 31 police shootings in san francisco, none of which led to officers being charged

12:05 pm
can see without steph he's playing 38 minutes total in six games, and the whole team has really contributed. green has been great, triple- double last night. listen to the high praise. >> play making ability, he's one of the best players in the league. >> never heard me call myself that, but if they're going to call me that i'll take it. won't shy away from it. >> so steve said if you talk about two-way players in the league, draymond green has been to be mentioned right up there in the rest of them in terms of playing defense and offense and the spark he brings to the team. other than steph curry, you can't think of anybody perhaps as valuable at draymond green.
12:06 pm
they are doing now a total team effort, everybody contributing, and word is that with steph he'll possibly test out the knee today, we don't know. he says he hopes to be back saturday in portland, but that will be up to the medical staff and coaching staff. he'll want to play as soon as he can, no doubt. >> the way the team is playing, no rush. as long as you're 100%, they can wait, even till next year if they're lucky enough to advance. five people holding a hunger strike plan to take their message to the mayor. there is a rally and march to city hall tomorrow afternoon. the hunger strike has been going on 12 days now. participants are genetic liquids only, saying the police department fostered a culture of racism. they are calling for the police chief to step down and for the

12:16 pm
it was a foggy start to the morning. >> yes, and we'll have partly cloudy skies for the afternoon. but we'll drop temperatures, already underway. you can see looking in the east bay, have some cloud cover out there. the low cloud cover has since burned back. you can see where this does remain along the coast. this is a three-hour lapse here, starting with mostly cloudy skies all around the bay. at this point we have just that low cloud cover along the north bay coastline and stretching down into areas like half-moon day, pacifica looking partly cloudy and clear at this point. the on shore breeze kicked in yesterday, probably felt it when it did. could be locally breezy at times but shouldn't have too much trouble with the winds this afternoon. they are going to continue to
12:17 pm
be on shore as they get into the rest of the workweek. we have 61 degrees in san francisco, mid-60s in oakland and 70 degrees in san josi. into the inner east bay, 76 for antioch right now, 74 in danville and lafayette 70 degrees. notice how much cooler we are in santa rosa, down by 17 degrees over 24 hours ago. you're definitely feeling the difference, and most of us are. and into the afternoon for today, this is a look at the highs expected compared to yesterday's highs. santa rosa hit 84 yesterday, today only reaching about 71. and so it goes, those forecast highs a little lower. this is the beginning of the cooling trend.
12:18 pm
eventually we'll have the possibility of scattered showers. 59 for pacifica this afternoon, 72 expected in oakland, 79 for livermore and morgan hill 79 degrees. so a cooler day, still mild and warm for the inland communities. temperatures continue to fall as we get into tuesday. notice wednesday, thursday and friday, low to mid- to upper 60s in the forecast for all of us. showers are a possibility on wednesday, maybe even see a possibility of thunderstorms in the picture thursday and friday. when i come back, we'll look at the model and look at the bay area weekend coming up. we have breaking news here with a situation happening in the oakland estuary. a boat is on fire. you can clearly see orange flames coming from the center. it appears to be a fire boat as
12:19 pm
well heading south toward that boat that's on fire. we don't know whose boat this is but we have a larger picture here. this camera is right on top of the building and as we read this, i'm assuming this is south of us. >> also the big concern here, because it's on the end of the docks and looks like the wind is blowing and you don't want the flames to spread from one boat to the next. we saw individuals with hoses putting water on the fire but no sign of any engines there. we saw one fire boat along the oakland estuary here. >> and in this picture, perhaps a dozen or so boats clustered at the end of the pier. another concern is flammable
12:20 pm
material or fuel that may be on the boats in the docking area. again, what really hasn't changed in the couple minutes we have been watching, that orange flame continues to burn. it appears like the flames are getting a little bigger. take a look at the left of the boat here. we see one person putting water on the fire using a water hose and that rescue boat is going to be able to put a lot more water here. >> you can see, could be almost like a houseboat that could be on fire. it's a little bigger, more rectangle shape. definitely flames continuing to get bigger here. some boats starting to take off from the docks, concerned these flames could spread and take down more than that boat.
12:21 pm
>> i believe we are north of the situation still, not able to see it from our window out the back. but this is i would say at least a mile or so down the oakland estuary from where we are. i bet if you're on 880 southbound, you're probably seeing this on the right-hand side. i'm guessing drivers are wondering where that smoke is coming from. now we know. again, this is from a camera on top of our own station, that plume of smoke there that continues to grow. >> and what's right across the way is coast guard island. wonder if they could help and assist in regards to getting this fire out. reports now that there are multiple boats on fire. looking at the smoke, if there is any positive, it is blowing away from the remainder of the boats there at the dock there.
12:22 pm
i don't see anyone in the water yet. looks like some firefighters are at the scene now putting water on this. >> we'll stay on top of this and bring you live pictures throughout the newscast. we'll be right back. ♪ i ♪ shining through rs ♪ i see your true colors ♪ and that's why i love you ♪ so don't be afraid ♪ to let them show ♪ your true colors ♪ true colors ♪ true colors ♪ are beautiful
12:23 pm
12:24 pm
back to the breaking news we are following along the
12:25 pm
oakland estuary, oakland fire confirming multiple boats now on fire. this is at one 5th avenue if you're familiar with this, along 880 at the 5th avenue off ramp. there is a little shopping mall with a starbucks and just to the north of this is where we are. firefighters on the scene, multiple engines there on the docks with their hoses putting water on it. >> and this is happening less than a mile from the station here. if i look outside the back window, i can't see any evidence of this fire. so you should know from the pictures, the smoke is being pushed in a southerly direction away from where we are. that means if you're on 880 at 5th avenue or south, this is what you're seeing on the right- hand side toward the water. is concern is how many boats
12:26 pm
this will spread to. in the past couple minutes we have seen firefighters putting serious water on the flames and at this point i'm seeing a lot of white rising up, which could be a good sign. >> looks a lot better than ten minutes ago. >> definitely, better than the flames we saw visible for several minutes. at this point they are going to work to first of all ensure that people are safe. anyone inside the boat or anyone nearby who may have been caught up on it, anyone else that may have been affected of course still questions. >> and we saw one boat leaving the docks quickly there. we know in san francisco they have a couple fire boats. one thing i'm not seeing here are fire boats in oakland.
12:27 pm
also when you look at it, nothing attacking the fire from the actual outside, and it would be an issue to bring up again later in the day to find out whether or not they are still in service. >> i just saw a second little boat coming from where this is located. might have been oakland fire boat, we are working to find that out as well. >> you can see that one boat coming back here, under the assumption they have this under control there at the docks. this is along 880 on 5th avenue. >> we'll stay on top of this. more after this.
12:28 pm
12:29 pm
12:30 pm
welcome back. quick update on the breaking news we have been following over the last 15 minutes. looks like oakland fire is getting a handle on a fire that picked up there along the docks near 5th avenue, multiple boats on fire there. a number of engines arrived at the scene.
12:31 pm
firefighters on the docks there, knocking that out over the last few minutes. so far no word of any injuries reported. we'll continue to monitor the situation there along the docks at one 5th avenue in oakland. now to san francisco, where this afternoon college students across the state are protesting possible tuition increases at cal state campuses. >> reporter: students here are voicing their opposition to any sort of a tuition increase in the near future, even though such an increase is unlikely, at least through the next action. we have a number of students here marching this morning across the campus to protest tuition hikes, now out here at holloway and 19th avenue with people passing by on the
12:32 pm
street. this will culminate at a big rally at malcolm x plaza on campus. there are similar rallies happening throughout the day at five other cal state campuses throughout the state to be sure tuition doesn't go up for students. there's a freeze on tuition increases but the board of trustees hasn't made any decisions yet for when that ends. one is a possible hike tied to inflation, one that students here oppose. it could be just a small percentage increase but could force some students to pay hundreds of dollars more. >> it's a big burden, having to work. students are working two and three jobs, on top of being a full-time student, just to make ends meet living in a city like this. so them increasing tuition or
12:33 pm
using us as a backbone of the economy, it's not fair, not right. >> reporter: a spokesperson from san francisco state university told me this morning the school has, quote, no plans to increase tuition, and that administrators share the concerns of students about college affordability. organizers say this is preemptive, designed to top the hike at any point in the near future. they could approve a hike as soon as this coming june. they will be at the malcolm x plaza here protesting tuition increases. there are also four students holding a hunger strike as well. that began last night and will go they say until funding is restored to the college of ethnic studies here. they want $8 million to go to
12:34 pm
that college. meantime, four students say they will not be eating until that happens. mayday rallies were held across the bay area this weekend with thousands taking part, and most were peaceful. >> protesters chanted yes, we can. may 1st is known as international workers rights day but the workers were calling attention to several different causes including immigration reform and police brutality. >> we are all workers and we are all being exploited by a lot of the different societies and want to bring the communities together to connect. >> protos called on politicians to raise a clear path to citizenship, and in oakland they rallied against
12:35 pm
inequality. in the south bay, two brothers will be back in court after entering not guilty pleas to killing their parents last month. they went to a convention after the killings and they are being held without bail. a san josi man has been arrested on suspicion of shooting and killing his wife. 63-year-old james untillen was taken into custody after his wife was found in their home with at least one gunshot wound. she was rushed to the hospital and died a short time later. police haven't released a possible motive. closing arguments begin this morning in the trial of an oakland man accused in the stilling of an 8-year-old girl and man in july of 2013. darnell williams is accused of firing shots into a home in retaliation for a gang killing.
12:36 pm

12:37 pm

12:38 pm
