blush dress by marina rinaldi and she's starting her own plus size line. last month, she was on "elle" magazine cover. there was criticism that the large coat covered her body. i thought she looked elegant. >> she said she chose that, by the way. >> she chose that. she picked it out and she looked smoking hot. she didn't name the designer. she took the high road and doesn't name them. i kind of wanted her to out the designer to let people know the designer not in on the diversity of figures. >> she's an incredible talent. she's funny, she's cool. she's going to be a big star for a long time. what's the upside in turning her down? i don't understand that. >> i don't understand it either. and you are making -- i think when they make it custom for you, they surely, can make it
custom to fit your body. by the way, she's curvy. she's got moves in the right places. >> you remember when gabby won the oscar, the dress she wore was highly criticized. >> i thought she looked amazing. >> really beautiful. this is golden globes red carpet that we were showing you there. there is that conversation. ongoing. these women are gorgeous. they're comfortable in their own skin. they're talented. >> by the way, if you're a good designer, you should be able to design for anyone. if you're so great. if you can only use the quote/unquote perfect specimen to make your clothes look good, then maybe your clothes are great. >> we're team melissa mccarthy. a school community getting together to help their own.

followed by that, we saw a fire truck and an emt and ambulance come in, but that ambulance eventually would turn around, leading me to believe at this point there may be someone dead after this shooting. i do know officers were already on the scene there, so this could be seen as an officer-involved shooting. who was shot, that was unclear at this hour. whether it was a suspect or an officer. i can tell you, based on what i'm looking at now, it doesn't seem to be the normal flurry of an officer-involved shooting, because normally they are doing absolutely everything they can to get that officer to the hospital. in this case, no one was transported, as it would appear to me. so at this point, what we know, there has been a shooting out here on fair oaks. police as well as santa clara police here are assisting. they have shut down the entire street for blocks on either end, as they continue their investigation and they continue to assess exactly what happened here today. sam? >> thank you very much, derek. again, a middle school nearby,

street closures. "today in the bay's" bob redell is at north fair oaks near maude avenue where this all happened and you've learned some new information recently about the man involved. >> we just were briefed by a captain and he's telling us this happened around 9:45 this morning, all centered in that home right there at north fair oaks in maude. you can see where the sunnyvale s.w.a.t. vehicles in front. this is the home where a murder suspect was living. earlier this morning, at 9:45, officers with s.w.a.t. went in to try to arrest this man to serve a warrant. according to the captain, he tells us that they did a knock on the door and announced who they were, the man ignored their warning and displayed some sort of weapon. the office of public safety did not see whether that weapon was a knife, a gun, or something else, but when that man displayed that weapon, the officers, with the office of public safety, fired shots at him and killed him. he was taken to the hospital where he eventually was declared dead. according to at least one witness we've heard from, there
were five to six shots by their count that were fired at this man. again, a man who was wanted for a homicide. and this was a homicide that is, you know, an older case. it wasn't something that happened recently, but the captain wasn't able to specify when this murder took place. but this was the man that they were looking for, and as you mentioned, this neighborhood was on lockdown, even though they have a crime scene up here, the person that they were looking for is dead and there aren't any other outstanding suspects. we don't believe that this neighborhood is still on, quote, lockdown, and it was columbia middle school that performed its own lockdown. but we believe that has been lifted as well, because the threat is gone. again, a murder suspect, the office of public safety here in sunnyvale was trying to apprehend. they're trying to take in peacefully. they say that this man would not cooperate, and as a result, he was shot and killed by at least one of the officers. reporting live here in sunnyvale, bob redell, nbc bay area news. >> and bob, one quick follow-up. it is stable now?
the investigation is going on, but everything is stable? >> that's correct. threat is gone. this is the only person they were looking for and they don't believe anyone else who was posing a threat or is a danger to the community. >> bob redell live from the scene, we appreciate that. let's bring in traffic reporter mike inouye with a look at all the closures as a result of today's incident. >> and as bob said, the active investigation is going on, but not a lockdown. still want to avoid the streets you saw with all the activity. fair oaks, wolf, columbia, and maude. that's a perimeter around there. that's the area to avoid as far as technically, look at the map. a chopper overhead, see all the activity in the area and blocked off a few blocks there. look at the map, this is what we're talking about, tupper left-hand portion of sunnyvale on our screen, but the only issue as far as freeway traffic goes is 87, there's a truck on the shoulder with a number of chp vehicles there. the rest of the bay looking a little bit lighter, as we've seen for the last few days. again, avoid that area in sunnyvale by the investigation. >> thank you, mike. a lot of details to bring you later in the day obviously on this killing of a gentleman who
was being served an arrest warrant for committing murder. we do not have an 11:00 a.m. news program today because of the french open. we will see you at 5:00 today. we're back with more of "today" on this thirsty thursday, ready to reveal our "ambush makeovers" with two lovely ladies who waited all morning long in the very heavy wet plaza for a chance to get a brand-new head to toe look. >> doing all the primping and pampering, our talented twosome, louis licari and "today" contributor and contributing editor for "people style watch". >> and author. >> jill martin. >> a little wet. a little damp. >> but worth it. we got to see pharrell, come on. it was an added bonus. >> did you take them away before the concert? >> we saw the rehearsal. >> okay, good, just making sure. our first lucky lady, christine, 47 from jasper, alabama. christine is a married mother of three and registered nurse.
