5:20 pm
out there right now, a little bit of the cloud cover, but not much. and the reform happens here again, which means that they will have an opportunity to drop back down into the lower 50s as they would get last night. a little chilly overnight. 74 right now in fairfield. it is 7 degrees warmer in fairfield than what it was yesterday as you'll forget that yesterday, it was silly. but today 12 degrees warmer in hayward. hayward right now, 74. so it will be 12 degrees warmer. so it will be only 62 degrees for hayward at this time yesterday. san jose is four degrees warmer. the winds are bringing in that cool marine air, fire danger is bound, air quality is good. we have some gusty winds, 30 miles an hour gusts in some places. the forecast model for tomorrow morning, just a few clouds, right? and that i think that they will have a little patchy fog, more of the low cloud thing. more yellows, starting to work

5:26 pm
it's kind of a destination that it does not bother me. >> reporter: residents are not just bothered by the crowds. but they tell us that the vandalism and car break-ins are an issue. that drones are flying overhead to makuta constant lawnmower -- overhead making a constant lawnmower sound. what do you think should be done to make lombard street better or should the city do nothing at all? people from all over the world come to sf for a variety of places to see. and the people who live there, they should have understood the ramifications of living near a popular tourist attraction. it is just like if you bought a house near train tracks. there is another response that i want to read to you from kelly on facebook. most of the people living on it have been there for generations. traffic and lack of respect have grown. to enforce the care and respect, it should have hours 9- 5 just like most other attractions. in phoenix police say that two

richmond police officers that were wrapped up in the sex scandal claimed prostitutes did not break the law. >> our crime reporter henry lee is here now. henry, some of the officers are still going to face discipline. >> reporter: that's right, frank. five current or former officers are facing the criminal charges. that's not the case in richmond. we learned 11 officers were investigated internally that some of them are facing sanctions ranging from counseling to termination. internal investigations focused on 11 current and former richmond officers who were involved with this woman. a self-described sex worker who goes by the name of celeste guap. an undisclosed number of officers will face termination, reprimand, or counseling. the investigation cleared some officers of wrong doing. richmond police chief owen brown declined to comment tuesday. reading a memo to city officials, the chief said that they reviewed 10,000 text messages and cell phone records, 5,000 social media
5:32 pm
pages, and interviewed guap for 13 hours during five separate meetings. guap is in jail in florida charged with misdemeanor battery for allegedly attacking a security guard while in rehab. she has been offered a plea deal so she could potentially be back in the bay area soon. but the chief struck back at accusations against their department spirited her out of california even as their own probe that is ongoing and that the department, they would have no control over where the victims will be going to rehab. but they said, "the representations that we have sent this teenage witness away or had her removed to florida distort reality." and he also said that guap was considered a crime victim for an earlier incident unrelated to the police misconduct scandal. he declined to give specifics. the state victim compensation funds for used to pay for her rehab. in a statement richmond mayor said, "any time something like this happens, you know it's not good for the perception of the department and the image of the city." >> reporter: now celeste guap
5:33 pm
and her attorneys will be holding a news conference tomorrow in florida. we'll certainly see if they have anything to say to these officers in oakland. >> yes, it will be taking up a plea deal that will be offered. >> it is very possible, i think if that is the case that you will probably do that back here and that is where alameda county district attorney o'malley wants her to be a key witness before formally filing charges against the officers in alameda county. >> is there a possibility even though the internal investigation found that those officers didn't break the law that the district attorney could still charge some of them, which is what happened in alameda county with the oakland police officers? >> it is possible. i reached out to the d.a. and they don't have any open cases against any officers. they have looked at some oakland officers, but no charges have been brought. that is always a possibility in contra costa, san francisco, and in san joaquin county. >> henry, i'm still a little confused as to why and who is paying for her to get treatment outside of the state. >> well regardless of it, outside the state or in the
5:34 pm
state, why would the state be paying for her to get treatment? >> so there is a board that has allocated crime victims ranging from domestic abuse, victim abuse. she falls into this category for the last seven years. and they can secure funding through the state fund. in this case, the city of richmond and the contra costa da's office would help her with the paperwork, treating her as a crime victim. >> what was she a victim of? >> reporter: she was a victim of some kind of an incident before the whole sex scandal materialized, saying she was eligible for funds as they would see her as someone that needed some kind of help to get her back on the right track. >> all right, okay. thank you. the santa clara county sheriff's department is investigating the deadly officer-involved shooting that happened shortly before 8:00 last night in saratoga. sheriff deputies were called to a house on titus avenue near prospect road when they came face to face with an armed man

who was inside. that lead to the deadly confrontation. >> the subject had a firearm in his hand. he raised the firearm. and then deputies gave him several verbal commands to drop that firearm. and deputies shot the individual as he was later transported to a hospital and pronounced deceased. >> the sheriff deputies, they were not hurt. authorities are still investigating whether the suspect ever fired his gun during last night's confrontation. the name of the man who died has not been released. we now know the name of the man who police believe was involved in that double shooting in el sobrante. 32-year-old jason ellis was arrested yesterday, not far from a home where two people were shot on el central road. one victim is 37 years old and the other is 19. both men are still in the hospital being treated. ellis is being held at the attention facility with two counts of an assault with a firearm. his bail set at $100,000. late this afternoon hillary clinton's campaign announced that she'll get back onto the

5:43 pm
10 yards. it was all reflected in a very positive 49 locker room. >> there are ups and downs throughout the games. the biggest thing is that they were catching their way for the w and that is all that matters in this league. >> just the way that we would play as a team and special teams, defensively, offensively that we would rally off one another. >> and there is still a national anthem side show around the 49ers. and that it will likely follow them all over the season. after the game at least one 49er was vocal in their displeasure that there is a huge amount of reporters that took three mop-up snaps rather than the stars of the game. if there is something about their political dialogue that opened up in the 49er locker room rather than be devicive could be served to unify the team. >> it is equality, you know what i'm saying? and that i feel like it is a guy who is trying to represent something on standing up or something. and that you should not shoot
5:44 pm
that man down and blow them when they are on the field. there have not been any issues in our locker room that it was handled in the beginning right away. when we come to work here. i give colin the most credit because when he comes here it is all about football. this week it is about preparing for the panthers. >> reporter: whether it is going for a two-point conversion on winning a game or getting a team shutout for a team that was not really highly regarded in the nfl season. week one proved to be highly unpredictable. we can hardly wait for week two. in santa clara joe fonzi ktvu fox 2 news. well the nfl unveiled new uniforms today. all the teams will wear these special uniforms when they play on thursday night. as you can see the 49ers will wear all black when they play the arizona cardinals coming up on thursday, october 6. the raiders will play their thursday night game in all white. and some raider fans are upset that they are wearing white and instead of black. the raiders play the kansas
