6:01 pm

6:28 pm
6:29 pm
we have an update to our breaking news. we have confirmed it )s right now at 6:30, we have an update to the breaking news we've been following. we have confirmed it is a deadly shooting near thaandro. you could see our bay area sky rang ranger overhead. these are live pictures and let's go down to ground level to terry mcsweeney with more details. terry? >> reporter: raj, i just talked
6:30 pm
to sergeant j.d. nelson and that is the side of the story. at about 4:40 this afternoon it was a simple theft at a store called thrift town here in san leandro on east 14th street. the owner of the shop called the deputies and they came out. they came over to this suv. the suv, according to the sheriff's office, tried to back over them. they opened fire killing one, wounding another. take a look at some sky ranger video to have that suv in question. it's kind of unclear exactly why a simple theft would end like this. what it was they were trying to get away from, a lot of questions unanswered. we don't have any names or the condition of that second person. but we do know that a simple a. a sheriff's deputy is opening fire and killing one man and wounding another. i in this vehicle w not injured. that is mentioned by sergeant
6:31 pm
nelson. that is the story out here. again, a lot of questions. i was asking why so many deputies responded to a simple theft at a thrift shop and we didn't have an answer to that. but there were a number of deputies, at least three, a couple of them opened fire on the two suspects and again killing one and wounding another. that is the story from here in san leandro. back to you. >> terry, thank you. we'll check back later this evening as well. also new at 6:30, the story continues to rock the headlines. fashion designer mossimo giannulli seen outside of court while his actress wife lori loughlin faced a judge in this widespread college cheatingl. they are amongghtp in the extreme. now lori loughlin and felicity huffman are the most high-profile parents arrested for paying to get children into top tier universities. there are a lot of bay area families impacted in this as well. later today lori loughlin was leased from custody after posting a bail of a million dollars. she and her husband are accused
6:32 pm
of paying nearly $500,000 to get their kids into usc. new court documents reveal that the ringleader william rick singer collected up to $25 million from hundreds of families to help their kids cheat on s.a.t. tests or bribe college coaches. today the scandal caused ripples in congress. >> we can all imagine how many students and parents were -- are anxiously awaiting the letters on admissions today. and how in many ways howerless they must be feeling how they worked hard and play by the rules and yet we have this scandal. >> this prompted conversations at dinner tables across the country about the entire college admissions process. now federal agents say more arrests are possible. now william rick singer has pleaded guilty to masterminding this scheme. when sentenced in june he faces up to 65 years in prison and more than a million dollars in
6:33 pm
fines. this brings -- begs the question is how common is that? admission experts lulu coddel joins us now. let's talk about this whole thing. because as it is right now, getting into college is a distinct animal and that is hit a nerve because there is a two-tier system already. parents with some means can pay for s.a.t. tutors or they could pay for college counselors and that is all legal. and there is other families that can't afford those things. but now you have a group of people that have gone beyond that and have the means to do all of that and are still cheating. >> yeah. yeah. unfortunately i'm not surprised of the news. this is just what is happening. there are people with power and influence and they do that and use that in the wrong way. i'm getting reactions from people who i have helped and advised and tbecaree you have h students who did things the right way and they studied and they achieved high in the s.a.t. scores and maybe some of them
6:34 pm
were needing extra time and they see the news and they go, this is just baffling to them. >> and how is it possible they're even -- if your going -- and i'm in the midst of this admissions with my daughter. most of the time as a parent, if you have a college council, you're not even involved in the process. it is between the college counselor and the student. they're the ones getting the test scores and preparing their exams and you drop off your kid to get the s.a.t. how is it that cheating could be so widespread and how are you supposed to pick a college counselor that you could really trust? >> sure. so i think it starts with a right incentive. if you are getting people who are charging you $100,000, it is probably -- there is a question mark in there in the process. and it is also about the conversation. some of the parents that come around and say do you have a guarantee? there is no such thing in life that anything is guaranteed. when they ask the questions, it is the wrong approme,ac you will get in. so that is already in itself
6:35 pm
questionable. so in this digital era, whatever you do, it will come out. no matter what -- what approach you take, it is going to come out. it is important to come into this process knowing you can't always win. and it is okay to lose. >> a lot of people are saying that the whole system needs to be overhauled and how we take kid news college. what do you think about that? >> well it is not about what to take away from the process. but what to add. we need to add more transparency and more diversity of opinion. so for example, the interview process, you have one interviewer who will judge your character and your fit but maybe they could be adding another interviewer completely different profile and then between the to they could judge things like oth parameters that and honesty are not there in paper. >> is it possible that the students involved in this didn't know their parents were doing this? i find that very difficult to believe because if someone is changing your s.a.t. scores, you have to know. if someone is doctoring your photo and putting you in a water polo and you never played water
6:36 pm
polo, and you have that, you have access to your admissions packet when you are doing it online. >> right. right. for as much as i would love to believe they didn't know it, i believe they were part of it. if you were recruited as a soccer player and you didn't play soccer, it is obvious that you know this was going on. and that is disheartening to think that the example that the parents are setting is not right and it is about not -- not about the end but about the process. >> lulu, thank you very much for being -- and shedding light on this ever-growing scandal. >> thank you. well we've made it easy to look up the bay area parents names. log on to nbcbayarea.com and there we have every person listed by name with the accusations against them and a link to their court documents. paul manafort faces new charges tonight. the state of new york unsealing an indictment charging him with 16 felonies including mortgage fraud and conspiracy. also today, manafort was sentenced in a federal court to 7.5 years in prison from a
6:37 pm
wheelchair he apologized and the judge said he isn't public enemy number one but not a victim either adding it is hard to overstate the number of lies and the amount of fraud. outside of the courthouse his attorney defied the judge's claim that collusion was not part of paul manafort's case. >> no evidence of any collusion -- >> liar -- >> i feel badly for him. it is a very sad situation. >> president trump said today he is not thought at all about pardoning paul manafort who is his former campaign chairman. well california sanctuary city policies under legal attack. the ninth circuit court of appeals hearing arguments over three lawsrtanayis a law that g local governments the right not to assist federal immigration. sock brock has the story of how that decision could send shock waves through the country. >> reporter: last summer a federal judge in sacramento appointed by george w. bush
6:38 pm
upheld most of the california immigration policy setting up a showdown at the appellate court. the center piece issue at stake is voluntarily cooperating with i.c.e. and california maintains it has the legal right to decide. [ crowd chanting ] >> reporter: familiar chants echoed through san francisco streets. >> desperation and fear and anxiety and depression at all time high when dealing with a parent in immigration detention. >> reporter: as families touched and torn apart by immigration made their case but today didn't center on symbolism, but just interpretation of the constitution plain and simple and the feds accusing california of obsti to the local police station fast and grab the person as soon as they walk out of the door and have five agents there because we won't turn them over. >> a three-judge panel pushed back that not kooptding with
6:39 pm
washington is not the same thing as obstructing washington from doing its job. >> what i'm not seeing is any violation of federal law by the state of california saying to its law enforcement people, you must cooperate in the hand-over. >> reporter: outside court, a coalition of groups cheered for protection and immigrant power and in inside judges did question the power of california to demand businesses notify employees of a ice visit or oversee conditions. >> i'm having difficulty understanding why the conditions of apprehension are any business of the state of california. >> reporter: three signature billsil by the ninth circuit. the judges say they'll render a in san francisco, sam brock, nbc bay area news. up next here at 6:00, a tesla with a side of sushi. investigators reveal what caused this accident in contra costa
