4:02 pm
police say they're looking at whether today's violence is connect to the shooting death of a man in west oakland yesterday but they're certainly on the lookout for anyone responsible for shooting a 22- month-old child. ted. >> rob roth, thank you. the girl's mother drove her daughter to high land hospital immediately after the shooting. from there she was transferred to the children's hospital. >> cristina rendon live at the hospital where the girl's family has gathered. >> reporter: the girl's family is inside as we speak. they have gathered together. they are praying together that this 22-month-old girl will pull through. oakland police say she remains in stable condition at this hour. as you guys mentioned the girl's mother initially drove her daughter to high land hospital. by standers there tell me the car was honking as it pulled into the emergency area and a woman got out of the car saying her baby had been shot. we know the car was taped off as part of a crime scene investigation. another person tells me that someone came over the hospital intercom to page a pediatric doctor for a code 10 emergency.
4:03 pm
the girl was then transferred here to ucsf children's hospital oakland. that's where we spoke to one man who met with the family inside. tess founder of amica village, a group that supports parents who lose their children to violence in oakland. >> driving down the street, cars shooting at each other and end up shooting the baby. she's two years old. she's fighting for her life. of course we have to deal with this unthe first week of january 2017. just keep the family in prayer right now. that's all we can say. >> reporter: police are investigating whether the car was parked or whether it was traveling when the girl was hit but we do know that she was in a car seat which was seen in the backseat of the car there at high land hospital. we will of course keep monitoring the girl's condition and let you know if she improves but oakland police did tell us that she was not the intended target of the shooting. as you heard rob mention they are looking into whether or not this was some sort of retaliation shooting for
4:04 pm
yesterday's homicide. they have assured the family we actually saw them speaking to relatives, they are going to do everything they can here to make sure that the people responsible are off the streets. guys. >> cristina rendon, thank you. we have up-to-the-minute information on this story on- line at more on the investigation and condition of the child coming up today at 5:00. today's shooting comes one day after oakland announced its new police chief. we're told that anne kirkpatrick has been briefed on this shooting as well as the first homicide that occurred yesterday in oakland. reducing the city's crime along with reforming the department after a year of scarnl among the incoming chief kirkpatrick's top priorities. in san francisco law enforcement officials are discussing police use of force. as ktvu's christien kafton reports that meeting focused on greater account afternoon. >> reporter: more than 200 officers from around the state gathered at the university of
4:05 pm
san francisco. the aim to discuss the use of force. >> obvious al hot button issue nationwide. we are taking a long look at it. what we can do better and how we can increase our partnership with the community. >> reporter: the keynote speaker, sheriff jim mcdonald, says policing is a difficult job. that's the reason they need to come together to share best practices. >> we ask an awful lot of our people but what they do in the field is critically important to us. we have to hold our people to a very high standard. >> reporter: act san francisco police chief tony chaplain says accountability is a priority for his department. that's why they have already taken steps to monitor interactions between officers and the public. >> as of last month we have deployed 1500 body worn cameras to provide a fuller picture of what happens. >> reporter: officers attending today say they are hoping to take what they learn here and apply it on the job.
4:06 pm
>> being able to come together in a meeting like this and share ideas and share what people are doing in different departments is helpful. it helps us learn best practices. it helps us grow as a law enforcement community. >> reporter: the symposium runs thursday and friday. in san francisco, christien kafton, ktvu fox 2 news. >> one of the speakers today, retired commander richard korea. we are joined by him now. what was your main message today? >> well, you know, the main message of our panel was to talk about community engagement and the intersection of law enforcement, first responders, and mentally ill folks. the challenges that are presented by those. we wanted to cover the history and give these folks some take- aways about changing the world and reducing the lethality of
4:07 pm
those situations. the underlying theme is that no one is happy with the outcomes of these situations. >> mental illness and homeless go together, and the problem has increased in terms of population in major cities across the country including san francisco where you were for 35 years. give us an indication of how big a problem this has become for police officers. >> well, you know, if you look at the history of maybe the last 20 years and the reduction in funding for community mental health services, you take the stigmatization of people seeking treatment, you have a huge untreated population, estimated at 20 to 25% of the folks in our community that could use some mental health treatment. but in terms of day to day these officers are going to maybe 30% of their calls, some
4:08 pm
where between 15 and 30%, depending on where you are locate. so it's a significant part of the day. it leaves us wondering are police officers the best ones to be responding to these calls or is it something where we need to come up with some new solutions. >> what would be a useful solution there? because police officers are on the front line now, and they may or may not have the proper tools to deal with the problem, but right now they're the ones interacting with the homeless with the mentally ill. is the best practice while this is the situation to make sure officers do have the tools to deal with the problem? >> well, absolutely. i think one has to be the training to recognize the human factors on the part of the officers what they perceive. these are complicated dynamic situations that can escalate quickly. the main tools we commend officers are to create time and space, to back up, when they have that option to control
4:09 pm
things. however, we also have to have alternatives. there has to be treatment available. there has to be things beyond going to jail or going to the hospital. we also question, i think the panel pointed out, do we want treatment in response to these sorts of problems to be at the stage when it's a police matter, or do we need to back that up a little bit. and i think we're at the point of the discussion right now. >> former sfpd commander richard core correia, thank you. protesters calling for criminal charges to be filed against san francisco police in a deadly officer involved shooting. protesters held signs indicating the 679 days that
4:10 pm
have now passed since the death of a construction worker who was shot and killed by plainclothes officers in february 2015. initially police said he had lunged at officers. however two, separate autopsy reports showed that he was shot in the back. >> this double standard for law enforcement has become an accepted way of fact in our nation. that's why we are seeing killing after killing go unpunished and uncharged. >> according to data recently presented to the san francisco police commission there are currently 15 open investigations into police shootings in the city. three of them date back to 2014. in the south bay santa clara county services were shut down for the day because of a power outage. dozens of people who work at the building were september home for the day. we're told switching equipment inside the building failed this
4:11 pm
morning. the county building handles everything from permits to birth certificates. some people were left a little bit disappointed. >> needed a birth certificate so i can go out of the country for traveling so i'm hoping to get it on-line. that is the idea. i'm used they have an on-line service, but it would have been nice to get my birth certificate today. >> power was also knocked out to santa clara county sheriffs headquarters but sheriff lori smith said they switched over to emergency generators. one person is recovering after being injured in a fire inside a condominium in forest knolls neighborhood. when firefighters arrived flames were coming from a back window. firefighters pulled the woman out of the cob dough. she wasn't conscious and suffering from smoke inhall laismghts she was taken to the hospital in critical condition. the flames also damaged the condo next-door. >> we were able to stop it from
4:12 pm
spreading. these buildings are connected. it could easily get from one building to another. that's why we immediately called a second alar. we saw smoke coming out of the second building off the rooftop. as we fought the fair we determined it didn't spread to the second unit. >> it took about 30 minutes to put this fire town. cause is under investigation. coming up, a disturbing case out of chicago. two men, two women charged with torturing their victim on facebook live. those charges they're now facing. also, after a dismal holiday shopping season macy's announcing that it plans to close dozens of stores. it also has plans for others including the macy's at stone's town. we're tracking some significant rain. we are going to see flood concerns around the bay area and even mudslide issues. we'll talk about that when i return.
4:13 pm
4:14 pm
4:15 pm
wall street continuing to react to news from macy's that it plans to close 100 stores and lay off nearly 10,000 employees. macy's stock tasked nearly 10% yesterday and then today macy's stock continued to struggle dropping another 5% closing today at $30.86 a share. in san francisco two macy's are affected by that announcement. we found out last year that the store in union square was sold.
4:16 pm
now changes are coming to the macy's at stone's town mall in the sunset district. that's where we find -- that's where we find ktvu's tara moriarty. >> reporter: the company has announced this store has been sold. this woman has been shopping here for years. >> i have four boys so i am here a lot. and that will be quite a trek to have to go elsewhere. >> reporter: she and others say they are disappointed that their local macy's is one of 100 stores nationwide that is going to be shuttered. >> it is going to be weird. >> i didn't know about until now. >> reporter: macy's is selling the 280,000-square-foot store to general growth properties for $41 million. the company sold the men's store to stanley morgan for 250 million in october. macy's says while we are pleased with the strong
4:17 pm
performance of our highly developed on-line business we continue to experience declining traffic in our stores where the majority of our business is still transacted. customers say they will miss the convenience of the stone's town location. >> having to replace that with a journey, either downtown and deal with the park there, or on the freeway is definitely not ideal. >> reporter: gdp will lease the space back to macy's but will not say what it is doing long term until january 30th. >> we have redeveloped and are currently redeveloping over 100 big box sites over the past five years. the macy's at stone's town represents a further opportunity for us to had a value to the properly. >> if i wanted to go to macy's i would probably to have go to serramonte. but there is a target so hopefully that makes up for some of the loss. >> reporter: that target will be going in where the old
4:18 pm
sports authority used to be. macy's plans to lay off 6200 employees nationwide. most of those store associate jobs. tara moriarty, ktvu fox 2 news. >> just another unfortunate indication of the demise of big department stores. thank you, tara. significant rain has fallen, and it will fall as we go into the next couple of days. even so in the mountains this week the lake tahoe area has seen over seven feet of snow in some places like up at squaw valley, almost 70 inches at sugar bowl. significant snow. that snow could be a problem. we're expecting to see rain on some of the snowier lower slopes. and that's going to cause a lot of runoff. here is what we are tracking. it's an atmospheric river.
4:19 pm
we used to call it a pineapple express in the day but see the origin. there's the has -- there's the hawaiian islands. there's a very deep level of moisture coming 2200 miles off the pacific. it's a very narrow band where. that ends up is where there's going to be problems. that band right now is focus mainly more towards like the big sur, santa cruz area, more towards the santa cruz to monterey, southern sierra nevada. but lots could change between now and then. we're all going to get rain but it's the difference between three and four inches or five to ten inches in the coastal hills which as you know will cause problems. there's that southerly jet. you see it flying in there. the cloud cover outside, we had a nice day to dry out. a chance for the creeks to come down. tomorrow is going to be another day like that which is really,
4:20 pm
really very, very important to have this. if we had ongoing rain and it kept coming and kept the creeks full, we would be in some more trouble than normal. but with these breaks, all the creeks have an opportunity to come down. you get the idea. a day like today, then by tomorrow night and into saturday morning it starts to rain. but the real rain shows up on your bay area sunday morning. so here's our transition day tomorrow, but still dry. yea. here's a wet day. maybe an inch and a half, maybe a half inch, but not a gullywasher. then the main event is right in here in the sweet spot where we could see a significant amount of rain depending on where the focus is of this atmospheric river. we're looking from bay area south for the heaviest rain,
4:21 pm
going all the way to santa barbara. parts of l.a. are going to get heavy rain, and high snow levels. that's the story. tomorrow is another nice day, then it changes. when i come back we will get more into what you can expect and maybe how you are going to spend your saturday and sunday. we'll see you back here. >> all right, bill. lots of people will be spending saturday and sunday getting ready, he is special in marin county. it is one area that will likely be hit especially hard. as ktvu's alex savidge reports businesses and homeowners are preparing for possible flooding. >> reporter: bracing for some intense rain this weekend, sandbags sit outside many storefronts along this avenue. the floodgates for the front and back door are ready to go to hopefully prevent any damage to the business. >> i'm just concerned about the store, because i will to have clean it up afterwards. >> reporter: and it has been a busy morning at this sandbag station on sunny hills drive in
4:22 pm
st. anselmo. >> the water comes rushing down there when we get a lot of rainfall. >> reporter: this man says he is worried about the creek near his house. >> i have read it, and it sort of scared me. not sort of. it scared me. >> reporter: some are using the storms to make some extra cash. this 16-year-old said he posted an offer to fill sandbags for people and he has had quite a few takers. >> i delivered 10 sandbags for $20 to people. so far i've gotten a lot of spoons, mainly from the elderly and from businesses. and so i'm just getting started on that. >> emergency workers are preparing for all sorts of problems from flooding to downed trees to widespread power outages. pg and e is doubling the number of crews on hand for this weekend to respond quickly.
4:23 pm
officials are preparing to open up an emergency command center to manage storm related issues. the county is also going to be carefully monitoring several creeks. the ones they're most worried about, fairfax, sleepy hollow, and san anselmo. officials say if they see any serious flooding in low lying areas they are prepared to issue evacuation orders. >> the coming storm could leases to the closure of yosemite national park. forecasters say heavy rain is expected in the park which could push the merced river well above flood stage. if that happens yosemite could close. park officials are monitoring the situation and will make a decision on the closure perhaps a little later today or tomorrow based on the forecast. the last time the park flooded was in 1997, and there was extensive damage then to park roads, campgrounds, lodging and utilities. the park was closed for two
4:24 pm
months due to all that damage. peanut allergies in children have been on the rise for many years. now health experts have come out with some surprising recommendations they hope will reduce the amount of kids with allergies to peanuts. that's coming up.
4:25 pm
4:26 pm
some surprising new guidance about peanut allergies. experts now say you should give some peanuts to your babies. to help explain is our medical
4:27 pm
expert dr. larry. thanks for joining us. >> my pleasure. >> previously we were told to keep peanuts and peanut product away from kids until they're three, if there's a risk of allergies. now parents are being told they should give their babies peanuts y. the change? >> very different, yeah. it starts with this study in february of 2015 where they -- the researchers noticed an observation where in israel, where they give their kids peanuts earlier, they have 25% less allergies. they did a study that was pretty convincing. 600 kids. they didn't give peanuts to a certain group of those kids, then the other kids got peanuts or peanut butter three times a week. and the kids without any had an increase, almost five or six times, risk for peanut allergies than the ones who didn't. that was two years ago. so that study came out and
4:28 pm
doctors and parents in the u.s. were like, well what do we do with that? is this a good study? should we actually base practice on this? so we put together a bunch of experts in this country from the american academy of pediatricians, family physicians, immunologists, and those guys just released their statement today saying, you know what, we actually do recommend that for some infants to give them peanuts as early as four to six months. >> dr. larry, what's the rationale? is it so that you can build up the immune system so that you can kind of train in the. >> yeah, exactly. we used to be afraid that if you would expose them it would trigger an immune response that would lead to allergy, but now we're thinking it might actually provide a protective immune response to peanuts. so we're actually using the immune system in this case as we're learning to our advantage to prevent the allergies. >> obviously the idea here is
4:29 pm
to hopefully have more kids without the peanut allergy because really having a peanut allergy requires constant vigilance. >> especially if it's severe. there's going to be a spectrum, like anything else, but a peanut allergy can be life threatening and fatal, and you have to be really, really careful. not just obviously peanuts but peanut butter and all the forms. so everything we can do to prevent that, that you can do to prevent that for your kids is worthwhile. >> i know there are a few precautions, though, if you do after high-risk infant. for example, one that has severe eczema. can you tell parents what they might need to do? >> right, heather. so they broke it down into three groups. but if your kid has severe allergies you might want to get them tested where they do a little injection in the skin to see if peanuts provoke a response. if it doesn't, then it could be a good idea to expose them early and get that protective benefit. obviously if they have the reaction then would you want to
4:30 pm
avoid it. on the other end of the spectrum they said for kids who don't really have eczema or food allergies you can do what your cultural preference. >> dr. larry, thanks for your expertise. big changes for parents regarding peanuts. >> thanks heather. coming up we're just weeks away from president-elect trump's inauguration and those involved are now addressing the single largest problem they're facing ahead of the big event. >> well, it was one of his big campaign issues of donald trump, vowing to repeal the affordable care act. after the break we're going to talk with one political expert who argues that that move will actually harm trump voters including those here in california.
4:31 pm
most fast food places use formulas to create their combos. but all that math, doesn't always equal something tasty. at my place, you can get a mouthwatering sourdough bacon ranch combo for $4.99. with a full size beef patty, bacon, and creamy ranch sauce, on toasted sourdough bread. plus hot & salty fries and refreshing freestyle drink. because flavor always beats formulas. the sourdough bacon ranch combo, just $4.99 for a limited time. combos done my way.
4:32 pm
life... is unpredictable. life is deaths. and births. sickness and health. love and heartbreak. and covered california is there for it all. not just to help keep you well. but to make sure the cost of being unwell doesn't ruin this whole life thing. because it's more than just health care. it's life care.
4:33 pm
final preparations are underway for the presidential inauguration. the tickets have been printed and are on their way to house and senate members who will be contributing them to their constituents. as fox news tells us security is the biggest concern. >> reporter: on january 20th president-elect donald trump will become the next commander in chief in a ceremony at the u.s. capitol building. 44 presidents have taken the oath of office before. all but six happening here in washington. >> ronald reagan sudden 1981 during his inaugural address
4:34 pm
that what we do here is both commonplace and miraculous. and miraculous almost anywhere else in the world, commonplace here. >> reporter: some 250,000 tickets are available for the ent. they each contain multiple security features to prevent counterfeiting. all attend '83s will be required -- all attendees will be required to have one. >> there's no question that on inaugural day this would be the most appealing target in the world. >> reporter: areas in washington will be available for those who wish to demonstrate against the incoming president. the capitol and secret service will be in charge of those zones. >> current estimating between 700,000 and 750,000 total people for the crowd. >> president trump wants to be president of all the people. i would expect him to repeat that. >> reporter: the crowd will include several notable people
4:35 pm
who have criticized mr. trump in the past, including ohio governor john kasich, former president george w. bush and hillary clinton. they all plan to attend the inauguration. in washington, doug mcelway, fox news. >> meantime on capitol hill, republicans have launched their long promised effort to dismantle the affordable care accident. but will this move end up hurting the very people who have supported donald trump? joe, you say this could indeed backfire on trump supporters here. >> it would, heather. good to see you. we have took a look in the chronicle today at what the effect would be on california if the affordable care act were to be spiked. and would it did was, the affordable care acts puts about $20 billion into california in terms of helping folks expand medicaid here. or med did med did medi-cal.
4:36 pm
eight of the top 15 counties that have the highest percentage of the medi-cal recipients supported trump in the election. >> so people who supported trump hoping that he would drain the swamp, bring a new aspect to the white house may end up hurting economically and also lose some of theihealth benefits is what you're saying. >> yeah, and also, not only that, that 20 billion in federal subsidies that came into california has an effect -- pumped money into the community. it could cause job loss as it created about 200,000 new jobs in california. if the job -- the job losses, again, would be felt most acutely in some of the counties like kern county, with not only
4:37 pm
high unemployment rates but counties that supported trump. another inconvenient political truth is that those counties are represented by folks like kevin mccarthy, the number two person in the house, republican from california, and devin nunez, a top person on trump's transition team. again, another california republican from the central valley. >> well, obviously i'm sure democrats are going to seize upon this moment. >> yeah, they can seize upon it and they can make some noise on it, butt remains to be seen what they can do without the vote. there's only so much in terms of legislative maneuvering you can do, and that's going to be the thing. what they can do is to leverage some of these job losses, to leverage some of these health insurance losses and try and pull some republicans to vote with their constituencies instead of the national party. that's the challenge here. you have folks who want to support what the national goals
4:38 pm
are of the trump administration of the republican party of the conservative movement, but that may not be in the best interest of their core constituency back home. what's good for washington might not be good for bakersfield. >> we all know this isn't going to happen fast. republicans admits they may need several months. let's say this replacement does keep in place some of the aspects. then what? >> well, they have to figure out how to pay for it, because they don't want to -- paying for it will require some form of taxation, and republicans do not want any new taxes. there's many aspect of the program. keeping your kids on the insurance until they're 26, no preexisting conditions precluding you from getting health insurance. those are all my things. how are you going to pay for smt that's what the republicans have to figure out. so far we have not seen a coherent plan to explain that.
4:39 pm
a race-motivated attack broadcast on facebook live. now four people are in custody facing hate crime charges. we talked about tomorrow, your friday, and how that's going to be another opportunity for drying, but then it gets going into saturday and sunday with significant rain for your bay area weekend. most fast food places use formulas to create their combos. but all that math, doesn't always equal something tasty. at my place, you can get a mouthwatering
4:40 pm
sourdough bacon ranch combo for $4.99. with a full size beef patty, bacon, and creamy ranch sauce, on toasted sourdough bread. plus hot & salty fries and refreshing freestyle drink. because flavor always beats formulas. the sourdough bacon ranch combo, just $4.99 for a limited time. combos done my way.
4:41 pm
hate crime and battery charges have been filed against
4:42 pm
four people accused of beating a special needs man and streaming the attack live on facebook. chicago police say the four suspects, two men and two women, are all african-american and have been detained in connection with the attack. they can be heard on the video yelling expletives about donald trump and white people throughout the video. police say the victim is beaten and cut with a knife, all while he is tied up. >> it's quite a possibility that it is a kidnapping, and that's certainly one of the charges we will be seeking, if the turns out to be that. but he's a little -- he's traumatized by the incident and it's very tough to communicate with him at this point. >> police say his victim knew at least one of his accused atee, from school. facebook has removed the video. it's one of the subjects we're talking about on "the verdict" today. joining us is michael cardoza. if you haven't seen it, it is so disturbing to see what this
4:43 pm
young man who is developmentally disabled, had to deal with. >> it's shocking. the prosecutors in chicago should file hate crimes for this because of the things they were shouting. they should file the kidnapping and the assault and the battery, all aggravated. these people should be put away for an awfully long time. >> the hate crime component of any charge is just an accelerator when it comes time to sentence. in a case like this without knowing what happened beforehand and during, because there was a lot of bleeps in this video, it's tough to decide whether or not they have, i would think, a very solid case. but what we do hear is f trump and f white people multiple times. >> prosecutors have to prove in that trial, unless they plead guilty, of course. before they get to a trial. but that issue will go to a jury. they will see the entire video.
4:44 pm
they will hear what was said. the jury will then decide, yes or no, on the hate aspect of the crime. but i think what we've got to do a little bit besides pup in additioning these people is step back and ask the question, what would cause young people to do something this despicable to especially a handicapped human being? to any human being. in society we go, okay, lock him up, throw them away. that's an easy answer after seeing this. but would causes people to do this? i think we have to get to the root causes if we're going to stop this. we can't keep warehousing people and saying, did you this, we'll put you away for 30 years. it will continue. we know it won't stop people from doing things like this. so we as a society really to have get to the root cause and step to the other side of this and say, and ask ourselves, how do we stop this? how do we stop this type of hate? white, black, brown, it doesn't
4:45 pm
make any difference. this is hate all the way around. >> it seems like the divide in our country is getting larger and larger. quickly, your take on anne kirkpatrick, the new police chief going to work. today a two-year-old shots in oakland. >> welcome to oakland. welcome to the bay area. it's a unique place, chief. it's very unique. ian natural guys this to sort -- ian natural guys -- i analogize this to, will you give her enough time, or do you bring in like the head coach and say, we're not going to give you players and the money you need but we expect a wing season. you've got to tell her, look, you have three, four, or five years to get this done and not pull the trigger and get rid of
4:46 pm
her if something bad happens like that young woman sleeping with police officers. you can't pull the trigger and go oh, you caused this, chief, you are gone. no, no, no, give her a chance to put this department in shape. and it is going to take years. the city has to be patient. >> michael cardoza, as always, thanks. >> you're welcome. >> heather. unfortunate news. at least two deaths now blamed on that winter storm that is moving from the western u.s. into the southeast. coastal oregon and washington state hit particularly hard. an eight-year-old girl was killed when a tree fell into her family's home in lincoln county, oregon. and in denver crews there are working to try to keep the roads open despite high winds and frigid temperatures. also dozens of flights have now been canceled at denver international, the storm now moving east and several southern states including georgia and the carolinas have all issued winter storm watches. back here in the bay area we're all gearing up for
4:47 pm
