they are still looking into that. that is a brand-new investigation. they got the call at 1:30 this morning to come here and found three people had been shot. one man was pronounced dead. they looked for the suspect in the area. they even brought in the chp helicopter to look from above. they were not able to find anyone. >> when deputies arrived, they searched the scene and searched the area with the assistance of chp helicopter. they were unable to locate the suspect. the suspect fled the scene. the immediate area is secure. and the area, no one is in danger currently in the immediate area. >> reporter: he would not elaborate, though, why this area is considered safe at this point. since they have no one in custody. this is in the area of sylvia parkway and smith ranch road in
san rafael. we asked about the victims. at this point they don't have ages or names for us. they are still working to identify those involved. reporting live in san rafael, amy hollyfield, abc 7 news. okay, amy, we will keep checking in. your voice, your vote. early voting continues today. >> here in the bay area and across the country, early voters have turned out in force for the midterm elections. matt keller is live at the registrar. matt? >> reporter: good morning, jessica and reggie. one day away from election day. you don't have to wait to cast your ballot. the register is open today for early voting from 8:00 this morning until 5:00 this evening. a lot of people are registered to vote. in fact, it's a record number in santa clara county. more than 886,000 registrations. santa clara county registrar here in san jose and seven satellites were open over the weekend. >> well, we saw people were lined up when we opened the doors at 9:00.

common, the patients. >> reporter: a kidney dialysis technician. >> my dad, sometimes he's yelling over for a telling admission to help him because they're taking care of 12 patients at one time. >> reporter: gonzalez is fighting for yes on on prop 8. the proposition caps revenue of dialysis at 15% and pays refunds to patients and insurers for money not spent on improving patient care. prop 8, put forth by a labor union, would get them to reinvest inpatient care. >> so they can protect billions in profits, marking up 350%. meanwhile, too many dialysis patients are dying. >> it is unacceptable. they have the money to hire more staff, and they refuse to because they are only worried about making money. >> in a clinic like mine where there is no private insurance, it is a non-starter. there is no excess profit.
>> dr. wong is working kidney dialysis for years. he said patient death is high not because of poor sanitary conditions but the overall poor health of most dialysis patients. the staff shortage isn't about salaries. they can't graduate the number of technicians to do the work. if it closes, it runs the risk of sending patients to the emergency room. >> guess what happens? it drives up the cost. >> if prop 8 passes, thousands of us dialysis patients will be thrown out into the cold. >> two corporations run more than 70% of all of california's dialysis clinics. california's legislative analysis office puts their profit at close to $3 billion. clinics won't close even if prop 8 passes. >> if the ballot measure tells them, encourages them to spend more money on quality improvements and staff, how does that equal cutting back on services? it doesn't.
