tv NBC Bay Area News at 11AM NBC April 8, 2019 11:00am-11:31am PDT
with love, california. into crime scene. we )re learning that daly city police officers shot and killed . a bay area neighborhood turned into a crime scene. we're learning that daily city police officer shot and killed a dog. >> we're learning that neighbors tried desperately to help when a dog apparently ripped through a fence then attacked a neighbor. sharon katsuda is live for us. tell us what happened in this terrifying attack. >> reporter: we're still trying to confirm all the details with police but what we're hearing so far from one neighbor is the dog tore through a backyard fence and then ended up in the backyard of this fence, this house that you see right in front of me and mulled a man in the backyard of this house at
about 6:45 this morning. neighbors heard yelling and looked over their backyards to see a rottweiler attacking a man. neighbors say they tried to help but were limited with their tall fences. they called 9-1-1, police reportedly shot and killed the dog. they later carried the dog out and, according to the neighbor, the victim was really, quote, messed up. >> the thing is we have a high fence so we couldn't get to him, we were trying with a hose, he asked us to throw him a knife, i threw him a knife. he couldn't stab the dog because his arm was too weak. >> pretty soon i see a fire truck came over and i heard three sounds, bam, bam, bam. >> reporter: police say the victim is in critical, but stable condition. neighbors say there are a lot of big dogs in this neighborhood and they've warned their children to stay away. we've seen a lot of people walking their dogs in the neighborhood this morning.
we have another reporter on the story. he told me he just talked to the dog owner and he would not talk to the media, but he is cooperating with police. reporting live in daily city, i'm sharon katsuda, nbc bay area news. >> all right. we'll continue to follow that tonight as well. parents protesting what they believe is an unfair plan for students at one middle school. chris sanchez is live outside with more. >> reporter: hi, there. these folks have been out here since 8:00 this morning. you can see there are signs there trying to put the pressure on the community of loss altoes to stop the transfer of the eagen junior high campus to bullis charter school and to relocate existing eagen students to a new $100 million campus two miles down the road in mountainview. the charter school serves 20% of the public school children in
portable classrooms split between this campus here eagen junior high and block intermediate. public school parents say they don't understand why their kids should have to make room for the charter students while one loss altos school parent says they're bound by state law. >> people don't understand why neighbors opt into a neighborhood school why we're moving. >> the charter school has demanded, it's their right, you owe it to us, it's the law. they've demanded that we give them facilities. it doesn't matter if those facilities are currently in use, it doesn't matter if our children has to move. >> reporter: now i just in the last half hour talked with the president of the association that reiterates that the students are also public school
students. a cooling off period of no litigation guaranteed facilities and enrollment caps, says this is the time for a permanent solution. the deal on the table is one that has the support of the majority of both boards as a long-term solution serving the greatest interest of the community. tonight is the first of what will be several opportunities for public comment on the proposed charter school agreement. there is one at the school district meeting at 7:00 and at the same time there's a bullis charter board meeting at 6:30 at bullis charter. these are just the first opportunities to have public comment. i want to tell you what the superintendent just sent me -- i'll let him go by, just sent me a statement this morning from the superintendent of the school district. that under current law we believe the best way to improve the situation for our schools is to obtain a negotiated agreement with bullis, the proposed long-term agreement is heartbreaking for many people in
our community as we consider moving a top performing junior high school in order to make room for a charter school, but as a district, we must protect the long-term viability of our schools and the excellent education we provide for every child in the community, the counterargument is that people in this community seem to want some sort of school choice in the matter because not only does the bullis charter down the street serve 20% of the school aged population, they also have a waiting list of about 1,000 students. kris sanchez, nbc bay area news. >> thank you. investigators in the north bay want anyone with information to come forward after sexual misconduct allegations at a prestigious college prep school. the branson school is the subject of this independent investigation. it's the result of three former graduates speaking up about their experiences in the 1970s. the report names four former educators including a prominent soccer coach who engaged in
sexual misconduct with students. in total, 11 victims are named in the report. three out of the four educators accused declined to speak to investigators, a fourth is denying allegations. here's what people in the community are saying about the report. >> if it's true, they should go to jail. >> i think there's a lot of things that happened that are under the radar that people miss. >> nothing surprises me. it really doesn't. i have a conversation with a lot of my friends, schools, doctors, it doesn't matter. it happens all the time. >> now the school is asking anyone who may have information to contact its human resource department. new details in a 73-year-old man who is dead following an early morning house fire in west oakland. this is video from bay area skyranger. that fire started around 5:30 this morning on 16th street a few blocks west of interstate 980. firefighters not telling us the identity of the man who died. an investigation is under way
into what may have cause this had fire but firefighters say that it does not appear to be suspicious. the clouds are hanging around the bay area, taking a live look at the golden gate bridge. pretty fogged in there. also keep those umbrella handies, we're watching for some rain coming our way. >> especially in the north bay today, we'll see a new round of rain moving in and after that gorgeous weekend, we will see some changes going into the next 24 hours. this is a look at walnut creek. you can see that it is mostly cloudy but it's also still going to be very warm going into the rest of the day. making it into the low 70s as we will see some peaks of sunshine coming out every now and then but there will also be a lot of clouds through the rest of the day. by 6:00 we're in the mid-60s and we are continuing to keep an eye on that rain as it moves closer to ukiah. it's staying well not north. that rain moves into the north bay this evening and the rest of the bay area could see a quick
round of light showers moving through. i'll have another update on that and what to expect heading into the rest of the week coming up in the full microclimate forecast. >> thanks so much. we'll check back with you. new this hour, chp paying tribute to one of its own.

aid as a way of discouraging immigra immigrants from leaving their home country. one hiccup says the current secretary leaving for whatever reason means the under secretary takes over and that's claire grady. it's not clear what the white house will do about that, but we had a purge of that whole department. nbc news reporting that the president has fired the director of the secret service, the secret service part of dhs, laura. >> so many changes, thank you very much, scott. a potential presidential candidate opening up about his own sexuality. indiana mayor pete buttigieg was in washington, d.c. yesterday speaking at the lgbtq about his decision to come out as a gay man. buttigieg made the remarks as he prepares to announce a 2020 bid for president. he also addressed vice president mike pence over his opposition to gay rights.
