starts rolling when a police officer pulls a gun on him. it's about to warm up across the bay. get ready for some warmer temperatures the next couple of days. details coming up in the microclimate forecast. big slow for the tri-valley now. what's going on here and the latest progress for the crash by the oakland coliseum. >> announcer: from nbc bay area, this is "today in the bay." good wednesday morning. thank you for joining us. i'm sam brock. >> i'm laura garcia-cannon. new this morning, a dramatic police chase winds its way through san francisco and police say the suspects inside rammed an undercover officer's car trying to escape. >> that started a chain of events ending in a search and chase. bob redell live in san francisco. suspects were wanted for a recent crime? >> reporter: yes, overnight burglary, sam and laura. it all ended here in the alleyway behind us. that's clara streeting between 4th and 5th in the city.
this started around 1:50 with a call to 911 of a burglary in progress. that's about 3 1/2 miles from where we are at. undercover unit nearby responded. they spotted the getaway vehicle from these burglars. the suspects used that car to ram the police car, and then took off. there was a chase. you saw a bit of that moments ago. that chase went through the mission district and ending here in the south of market. in the end, officers said they arrested all of the suspects. the suspects being one man and two women. live in san francisco, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> thank you, bob. a police officer crossed the line? some say yes after seeing cell phone video but not everyone agrees. >> "today in the bay's" stephanie chuang live in our san francisco newsroom with both sides of the story. >> you can be the judge. take a look at video. a rohnert park man posted this on facebook a week ago, saying
that he was in front of his house hooking up his boat on his own driveway when an officer parked facing him in his cul-de-sac for a few minutes, took a picture of him, got out of his car and pulled his gun on him. >> take your hand out of the pock. i've done absolutely nothing, no. >> seriously. put your gun down, really? >> you can see, don mccomas, attempting to take a hand out of the pock tote put cell phone and keys on his suv. sources tell nbc bay area the officer was in the neighborhood after getting a complaint about parking. mccomas asked if the officer was coming to the house ace random act the officer's heard saying yes. the officer can be heard saying mccomas should have listened to him to take his hand out of his pocket. one former bay area police auditor says that is true, if an officer gives a lawful order you're supposed to follow. the video's troubling because the message the officer is sending is, i will use this gun for you to comply with the order.
>> you can record anything you want in public, and with respect to police, as long as you don't interfere, you can record them. >> the city of rohnert park says it's taking the matter seriously and conducting an internal review to ensure the police officer followed right protocols and the city will review protocols to make sure they keep both police and the community safe. mccomas did not want to talk on camera but did tell us that he has hired an attorney. live in our san francisco newsroom, stephanie chuang, "today in the bay." 5:03. a follow-up, another story involving law enforcement, a former san francisco deputy guilty of attacking a homeless man in a hospital waiting room. last november, a nurse asked the former deputy to remove the homeless man from san francisco general hospital because he had been verbally abusive. prosecutors say he grabbed and choked the man. but llewellyn said the man started it by attacking him with his cain.
video shows the deputy was the aggressor. he was convicted of assault yesterday, and could face three years in prison. tears as an east bay community remembers a recent high school grad gunned down while walking on a hayward street. we first brought you this story as breaking news yesterday morning. last night family, friends and former classmates gathered to honor the life of kionta murphy jr. the 17-year-old just graduated from mt. eden high school where he was a wrestler and played football. his mother, overcome with emotion, spoke about her son's dreams. >> this isn't a man that was a hoodlum on the streets. he wanted to be a marine and died for his country. he wanted to be for his country. and you took a life from us, from me and his father, from his sister, prematurely!
>> police say that murphy jr. was walking with a girl near morning side drive around 1:00 yesterday morning when they crossed paths with three men. one opened fire, killing murphy jr. the girl was not hurt. the suspects took off, in a silver suv, and there have been no arrests made so far in the case. >> on the other side of town, people took part in national night out. but this year it had special meaning for people in hayward. the dance music at national night out event in hayward stood in stark contrast with the cloud hanging over the city following deaths of murphy and last month's killing of sergeant scott munger. >> in vietnam, i served a year, i lost a lot of friends over there. i know what his family was going through. >> there's a great outpouring of support and sympathy and just
love for our police department that you can feel all through the city. >> national night out held every year on the first tuesday in august. the goal is to improve anti-crime solidarity between the community and law enforcement. similar scenes played out around the bay area last night. hundreds attended a big event at pleasant hill city hall which included dogs of all sorts. police canine unit there's for a friendly meet and greet, free hot dogs and hamburgers and thanks to donations from local businesses. >> nice to see. a developing story, could today be a turning point in the battle against the massive wildfire burning north of the bay area? overnight, crews gained containment on the rocky fire. >> "today in the bay's" kris sanchez here with the latest numbers. >> new numbers from cal fire overnight and the numbers are not good for people who are evacuated. we now know that there are 81 structures that have been destroyed by the fire. 31 more since the last count.
we know that about two dozen families will have no place to go home to. they did make the best progress overnight on the fire line, thanks to a brief break in the weather, a drop in the temperature the fire's 20% contained but still growing at what fire officials call an explosive rate. moving closer to the town of clearlake where instead of summer vacationers this time of year, there are evacuees and emergency personnel. 13,000 people have been ordered to get out and stay out of their homes and because the two main evacuation centers are set up at local schools, the first day of school's pushed back to august 18th. there was a woman who was staying in a tent outside a moose lodge who told us what's that's like. >> we could see the flames cresting up observe the hill and coming into the back of the valley and that's when we decided we need to go. >> meteorologist kari hall talked about the fire how it creates its on weather. this is one of the fire vortexes
or firenados. it can suck in debris and shoot out imbers for miles. that might be part of the reason why the fire has been erratic and spread in different directions. as you can see here on the map. the fire's now at 67,000 acres. a lot of that area's hard for crews to access. even though we know that the count of structures destroyed have gone up today, we expect it could rise farther as crews finally are able to get into some burn areas and check out what's left. firefighters don't expect the break that they got overnight to last into today. conditions are expected to be warm once again, and fire conditions certainly should not be this extreme, according to cal fire, until september or october. >> having a tough time with it. reminder, updates on weather in your neighborhood, just download our free nbc bay area weather app. >> as kris mentioned, temperatures are going to rise.
kari, a brief break here. how much longer will it last? >> we go on the warming trend, it begins. and it's cool this morning with mostly clear skies. around 60 degrees across most of the bay. notice a little bit warmer than yesterday. a high of 84 degrees in south bay peninsula. 81 degrees east bay, reaching 78 degrees. we'll have a tri-valley makes it into the upper 80s. also in the mid-80s for the north bay and san francisco today reaching 75 degrees. the warmest temperatures come tomorrow before it goes back down on friday. more on that, what to expect, our slight chance of rain in the forecast. that's coming up in a few minutes. now let's check the traffic with mike. >> calm around the bay. one crash and one big slow spot. the slow spot first, it's eastbound 580, look at flashing lights here. a crew with road work going on between as it harrah, closer to el charro, scheduled to pick up
