a police officer in southern california was killed this morning while responding to a crash involving a stolen vehicle. officer keith boyer was a 27- year veteran of the woodier police department. investigators say a 26-year-old man inside one of the crashed cars opened fire when the officers approached. at least one of the officers fired back wounding the suspect. police say he is a well-known gang member who was just released from jail about a week ago. authorities are also investigating whether the suspect was involved in another killing earlier in the morning. the woodier police chief broke down today as he talked about the officer who was killed. he said officer boyer was a beloved member of the department who was a mentor to other officers, and that he recently talked about retiring. we have new information tonight about a man who went on a shooting rampage last weekend in oakland where he was shot and killed by police. ktvu has learned oakland police were warned about jesse enjaian
opening fire in his neighborhood at least twice before last friday's deadly confrontation. enjaian's neighbor told us a week before last friday's shooting the 32-year-old computer engineer was shooting at cars in the neighborhood. four days later the neighbor said enjaian shot at him while sleeping in his car. >> once i identified him as a person who shot me, still nothing was done. once i got back to my car i had spoken to the neighbor in the neighborhood as they told me the police are not going to do anything to him and they have been calling, complaining that he has a gun, he's been shooting at people and shooting at things. >> oakland police told ktvu they are looking into the the matter, but so far they have not issued a response. it turns out the bay area has some of the worst traffic not just in the united states, but in the world. analytics company studied traffic congestion in more than a thousand cities around the bay area and they ranked fourth, following los angeles,
moscow, and new york. the study shows the bay area commuters spent an average of 83 hours a year stuck in traffic in los angeles. it was 104 hours. our traffic reporter says traffic here has gotten much worse over the past few years. >> it used to be maybe in 2010, 2011 we had a phenomenon called friday light. even in my traffic report i would say it's friday light and people could count on a day when there was, you know, a break and now it does not happen. >> the metropolitan transportation commission said the afternoon commute now typically starts at 1:00 in the afternoon and it will last until 8:00 at night. one reason for the gridlock, more people are walking and working and buying more affordable homes that are further away. >> finding ways to fix california's failing infrastructure. >> we still don't have the money we need to maintain the existing system. glop next part one of our week long series as we would look at the safety of california's
the rainy weather has not stopped the 24-hour efforts to stabilize oroville dam's emergency spillway. the risk of the failure happened a massive evacuation. the water levels reached their goal of 850 feet this morning, leaving room for more rain water. in the main time we're learning 11 people at the voluntary shelter of the silver dollar fairgrounds are doing better after falling ill over the weekend. they may have suffered from a food-born illness, the norovirus, or the flu. both president trump and governor brown agree fixing our infrastructure should be a top
priority. it's a way to grow the economy and promote good paying jobs. >> our reporter tom vacar has more on the infrastructure and tonight we will begin with a closer look at our bridges. >> in the last ten years about 111 new bridges and overpasses have been built in california such as this new napa river bridge 13 months ago. almost 600 others have undergone major reconstruction. nonetheless they need to identify the repairs on 140 structures at a cost of $13 billion. in his state of the state address 13 months ago, governor jerry brown proposed increasing car registration fees to pay for an estimated $77 billion in need of repairs. not just to our bridges, but the ravaged roadways as well. >> we have to bite the bullet and allow new fees and taxes for the purpose. >> what has happened since then? >> we still don't have the money we need to maintain the existing system that we have in
california. and we need sustainable funding to maintain our infrastructure. >> reporter: the american road in transportation builders association would estimate that about 5% of california's 25,000 bridges are structurally deficient. and what that means is for about 1,400 bridges in the golden state have some sort of structural defect that is so bad they are rated poor or worse. nationally 56,000 structurally deficient bridges are crossed by 200 million cars, buses, trucks. to put that in an understandable light if you put a way to end those bridges, they would be stretching all the way from san francisco halfway to new york city for almost 2,700 miles away. >> as the old saying goes, anybody who can't fix a problem by putting money at it is talking about somebody else's problem. >> this is a problem for all of us as we need to throw out a
ton of money on it. and so how much just to fix ask and replace the existing deficient bridges in california? $1,130 per california's household. tom vacar ktvu fox 2 news. and we did get our share of rain today. both the commutes got hammered pretty hard. coming in under six inches, but coming up on half a foot of rain. ben lomond nearly half a foot of rain, so a lot of rain. that is less than what was forecasted by the models by the way. and some of the models would suggest places like san francisco and through today, they could get four to five inches of rain, instead we would see one to two inches of rain, very helpful in keeping things a little bit sane around here. if you've got scattered showers out here right now, san rafael, it is wet, san mateo wet, concord it's wet. but you'll see how widely scattered everything is. but as we would go into tonight and tomorrow, it is going to look a lot like this. a few scattered showers in the
morning with a lot of brakes, but the sprinkle could come your way. i'll show you that on the model. right now it's raining a little bit with just a few stray showers. this is how the whole night goes if you look at the distribution, the last wave is pushing through with a lot of storm reports i wanted to point out this area right in here with some debris flows about 5:00, 4:00 this afternoon out on the peninsula. and a cell came in that it was very aggressive as we would see the flash flooding and the debris flows and such. and just a real messy day. i hope you had the day off and you were able to hang out at the house to watch it happen. and the winds were blowing too with the winds around here to 50, even 55, but we also were talking about wind gusts of the squall peak. it is nothing up there. they're not done as this system comes in tomorrow and the main system went through and the apparent low this guy here is going to come in to bring the cooler environments where the snow levels will drop down,
bringing down the scattered showers to our area. that's something to look out for. and also you can see a little bit of wind with this forecast model as you'll see more of this and here we are with the morning drive and maybe a sprinkle in san jose and then there we are in the afternoon drive. here we are tomorrow or wednesday morning, but look what comes down just a little bit, still a nice day and maybe a chance for a sprinkle on wednesday morning then again into thursday morning and it will be all fine. we pretty much got through that in one piece as i will tell you what it could have been really bad if the rainfall was here last night and we were talking and obviously sunday night and you can see the models when they start forecasting four and five inches of rain in 24 hours in an urban center. >> yeah. >> especially with all the rain we would have, that thing will just explode as we would get about half of the rain that was forecasted, which is a lot. i mean, it seems like it was really coming down this afternoon. >> oh my gosh, yes. it was. most places would get one and a
half to two inches for the cities. it's a lot of rain. >> we are gearing up for another round it looks like for the next few days. >> all right, thanks, bill. it's me. sports is next. a big, big trade in the nba involving the sacramento kings. we'll have that and more with mark in a moment. in our suvs, you feel every mountain we've ever conquered. in our sports cars, you feel every podium we've ever climbed. and now, they've come together to create something you've never felt before. introducing the glc coupe. part suv. part sports car. all mercedes-benz.
all right, mark is here now with news of the big trade in the nba. >> a big trade for one of the biggest guys, literally. i'll tell you what a weird weekend for him. he wondered why he was not playing a lot of any player participating where it turned out one of the kings would whisper in their ears to say you're getting traded, that he is for sacramento trying to unload him. he's had some problems as you can see from time to time. there is not getting around the fact of that talent. he'll go to the pelicans of new orleans in exchange for buddy, evans, for this year's draft in june where it will be the center piece.
they think he's the next steph curry. meanwhile the kings general manager, he is taking a lot of heat for what appears to be a one-sided trade. >> what do you have now? >> yes. that'll be just perfect and they did not sure you away not as much as the other one. this will be a critical time. >> just a speculation it doesn't look like they would have a whole lot of sleep since making that trade with a better deal a couple days ago. in the meantime the all-star weekend and most of the festivities, a whole lot of fun, whether or not they would need to speak with or make up
with his former teammate. this is before the game to look at the hooded k.d. who would kind of slip around and not exactly warm and fuzzy. but you know what once they started they were on the court for a little while together. k.d. is insisting with his old running mate to point out to him as they would make eye contact and did not have a formal apology. but you know what overall just a great exhibition for that basketball and no defense. >> we went in to get those points. the guys are over and we would throw it up, a good point and a good catch. >> showcase everybody's talent, nobody got hurt. there is a good amount of conversation, so mission accomplish. >> there you go. earlier tonight i was talking about how kyrie irving would talk about the world being flat
in his opinion. they have a social life and they have not heard about it. but yes, he evidently does a lot of research. here is kyrie who was backed up by green as a matter of fact. and the earth is flat in case you didn't know. >> you have seen pictures of the planet, right? like it is a circle? >> i have seen a lot of things. and for my education system. >> i don't mind at all. >> i'm not saying i think about it, but i don't know. but it could be. >> there you go. >> no, no. he is serious and he does a lot of scientific research. we will check in with bill martin and our meteorologist to get confirmation. in the meantime let's talk a little spring training baseball. the giants are going at it. it was raining all weekend down in arizona as well. they would have some festivities washed out, but
last week joe fonzi was down there. you need to have the strength up the middle as they would have that. buster posey a couple of gold gloves just a second. >> and how quick things could happen for them, the world series and the all star alongside buster. as an infield you would take so much pride for one of the greatest special feelings. joe has been fun to play with and probably the most consistent. since being in the major leagues for a couple of years in a row. we are excited to play another one together. >> yes. confirmed.
want some coffee? say yes. it's french press. i was doubtful, too, but i honestly can't see myself going back to drip. i'm so happy you don't live in a tough neighborhood anymore. we're so sorry for just dropping by like this. are you kidding me? i'll take any chance to spend time with this little princess. i love her little hair, her little toes. and she loves her grandmother. i don't love "grandmother." so, cam and i have been revising our will to specify who should take care of lily if, god forbid, something happened to us. god forbid. i said "god for--" so, we've been dropping by unannounced to, you know, casually assess our candidates. not all of our candidates. no, t-that's true. we did not drop by missour-ah. it's "missouri." no one from missouri would say "missour-ah." i'm so sorr-ah. so, anyway, claire and phil were our first thought, so we dropped by their place last week. [ glass shatters ] you win the award for worst mother ever! i will be sure to thank you in my speech!
