6:01 am
just yet. your seven-day forecast coming right up. in the meantime, for your traffic, here's elizabeth. >> thank you, tracy. well, fortunately even though we have some slicker roads out there, traffic is unusually light because a lot of folks have this whole week off, so lucky. for right now, no delay at the bay bridge toll plaza and no metering lights. we'll give you a full look at your morning commute coming up. back to you. >> thank you. this morning oakland police are looking for the gunman who killed a man and put three others in the hospital. it happened near east 28th street and 12th avenue last night. police say four men were standing on the corner when a suspect opened fire on them. the suspect fled and the victims drove themselves to the hospital. there's where one of them died. another is in critical condition, and the other two are in stable condition. the shooting comes on the heels of a study that names oakland the fifth most dangerous city
6:02 am
in the country ranked on crime data compiled by the fbi. st. louis at the top with more than 2,000 crimes per 100,000 residents. the national average is about 430. the hunt is on in morning for a man who broke into a north berkeley home and raped a girl. sharon chin joins from us berkeley now, where investigators are learning more about the suspect's connection to the victim. sharon. reporter: good morning. yeah, police here in berkeley say that they put out a statewide alert for a sexual predator they say may have headed to mexico. here is his picture. police say 27-year-old omar sosa of berkeley is suspected of assaulting a girl in her bedroom after forcing her way into her evelyn street home through an unlocked window after 6 a.m. saturday. he is described as between 20 and 30, 6 feet tall, 190 pounds with a very pronounced nose and heavy accent. he may have injuries on his hand and fingers. now, officers say the attack was not random, the suspect knows the victim's family.
6:03 am
they say he is driving a gray 1997 ford ranger pickup with a double cab and white camper shell. the attack was not random, the police say the suspect is no stranger to the victim's family. >> wanted to get out in front and share the details of this suspect and the fact that we don't believe he is in the area. we want to reassure our berkeley residents that this predator is no longer in our city and we're diligently pursuing him. >> an officer describing the severity of the attack says not two minutes, it was a significant sexual assault. police say the victim provided information that the officers needed to put out an arrest warrant 18 hours later. berkeley police say if you know anything about this suspect, you are urged to call berkeley's special crime detail at (510)981-5734. >> all right. thank you very much, ariel
6:04 am
sharon in berkeley. this morning the head of the tsa is appearing to change his stand on the new patdowns. he is suggesting people not boycott. mark sayre reports. reporter: the tsa in damage control mode this morning after yesterday flatly saying there would be no changes at all to the patdowns that are very invasive. this morning a different tune from the director of the tsa. of course, passengers have been complaining about these new security procedures since they were implemented. yesterday the tsa director said on the sunday talk shows that there would be no change to these patdown policies. but then in a written statement late yesterday, and again this morning on the tv talk shows, tsa director john pistole now says federal officials do understand that there is a balance between safety and privacy. >> no, i'm opposed to that. i think the scanning is important somehow. some kind of security. >> do you think the protests may cause some delays? >> absolutely. absolutely. it's always the few that ruin it for the majority.
6:05 am
so... >> reporter: now, the tsa is reaffirming its commitment to review its policies on patdowns. it says they must be, quoting now, as minimally invasive as possible. tsa director john pistole saying only one percent of passengers going through the full-body scanners are opted out and refusing to pass through them, at which point they are subjected to these new patdowns that are the source of such controversy. in terms of what changes and when, those are questions we don't have answers to just a couple of days before what's usually the busiest travel day of the year, the wednesday before thanksgiving. >> no kidding. mark sayre in san jose, thank you. tobacco retailers plan to rally this afternoon against two proposed license fees in silicon valley. tomorrow santa clara county supervisors will consider a $425 annual fee for businesses to sell tobacco products. san jose is already moving forward with a $450 annual fee. city council members could vote on that as early as next month.
6:06 am
all right. 6:05. let get another check on our weather and traffic. tracy is checking out the rain out there. how are y doing. >> >> good. we are going to talk about snowfall in the sierra. they got pounded over the course of the weekend a thick blanket of snow just in time for the holidays. several ski resorts are already boasting several feet for their base. boreal, mammoth, heavenly, squaw valley and northstar are open. others will be opening next month. more snow is expected to fall today. there is a winter storm warning in effect that kicks in late today throughout the day tomorrow. so that's going to make driving difficult if you are trying to get up there for the holiday. might head out early today or wait until wednesday and if you are going to be heading up, bear in mind, chains are required. so the sierra forecast snow showers expected today as well as tomorrow. and look at the dip down in the
6:07 am
temperatures for the lows. two below. that's a look at your tahoe forecast. for your traffic this morning, here's elizabeth. >> thanks, tracy. and right on schedule, chopper 5 has joined us and they are live near the dublin interchange showing us traffic on westbound 580 right before you reach 680. speeds busy on the roads, getting crowded in the westlund lanes and so westbound lanes. typically we see a lot of accidents even with slight sprinkles. it hasn't been the case so far this morning. i think a lot of people have this week off so there's just fewer cars on the roads. so thank you for that live traffic shot, chopper 5. to the maps, we can show you the drive times on westbound 580 almost 20 minutes coming out of the altamont pass towards pleasanton and the dublin interchange. elsewhere some of the slower spots highway 4 through antioch an earlier accident is cleared eastbound 4 approaching hillcrest. totally out of lanes but it is
6:08 am
still slow west bound 4 for the bottlenecking around a street and lone tree way. back to you. >> thank you. it is 6:08. a man in northern california calls himself a prisoner in his own home. >> i said, what am i supposed to do? i can't leave the house. >> what knocked over this massive 100-foot oak tree and the other obstacle he has to deal with. it will be 10 cents, please. the proposed fee making its way to a grocery store near you. ,, ,,,,

6:12 am
remove it. the insurance company can't come out until later this week. >> i said, what am i supposed to do? i can't leave the house. i'm a prisoner in my house. >> the man says he can't hire a tree service to remove it because it will cost more than $1,000, which he doesn't have. the political wrangling over just who will be the next mayor of san francisco will continue this week. tomorrow the board of supervisors may pick an interim mayor to replace gavin newsom, who is about to become lieutenant governor. but more likely, discussions will concentrate on how candidates are nominated. board members will vote on a process where each supervisor can nominate one candidate. today marks the fourth day of jury deliberations in the murder trial of chandra levy. the washington intern was killed nearly 10 years ago allegedly by a salvadoran immigrant. her case garnered attention after she was linked to california democrat gary

6:14 am
6:15 am
6:16 am
good morning. monday morning forecast, we have a few showers out there this morning. but definitely not widespread rainfall. we'll take a look and see what's going on and i'll have to hit the right button... [ laughter ] >> billy is laughing at me. light showers moving down near the ben lomond area. just to the south of sunnyvale as well as into half moon bay. more showers up in the north bay so we'll take a slight visit up there. there we go. more showers through healdsburg to the north of guerneville. and some light activity just moving out of bodega bay. that's going to be the gist of
6:17 am
today's forecast. a cloudy start with showers still expected. temperatures in the morning from the lower 40s to the lower 50s. for this afternoon, still a chance of showers and cold temperatures. today's highs in the lower to the mid to the upper 50s. bear in mind winds up to 15 miles per hour. so that's going to help that air temperature feel a lot cooler than it is. so what's causing all this? big low pressure system digging in. and that's the cause of the showers, that's why it's going to be cold and that's why it's going to be windy. the closer that low pressure system gets to the bay area, the higher the likelihood of picking up rainfall. so late tonight, the chance of showers will increase as well as throughout the day for tomorrow. so here's a look at our five- day forecast. showers expected today, rainfall likely for tomorrow. wednesday, thursday, friday, plenty of sunshine. a really nice holiday forecast except it will be a little chilly. lower to the upper 50s. and rainfall will be back in the forecast saturday and sunday. that's your weather this morning. here's your traffic with
6:18 am
elizabeth. >> thank you, tracy. back out to chopper 5 showing us live traffic conditions over the altamont pass really busy through this stretch of westbound 580. just checked the drive time. it's still 20 minutes in those westbound lanes from the altamont pass towards 680 and the dublin interchange. actually it's not too bad. pretty typical for this time of the morning. to our maps now to the bay bridge toll plaza, still no metering lights they will likely be turned on here any minute even though traffic is lighter this week. a lot of folks on vacation. so just seeing small backups, small delays in a couple of those cash lanes. and an earlier high wind advisory for the span was cancelled around 2:30 this morning. golden gate bridge traffic looks great. tracy just mentioned some rain showers a little farther north near santa rosa. haven't seen any big accidents despite the rain showers so far this morning. and again looks great across the span, about a 9-minute drive time between highway 37 and novato and 508 in san rafael. and getting a check of the south bay now, looks great up the guadalupe parkway. no delay coming up from morgan hill and we can show you a live look at traffic conditions out
6:19 am
of downtown san jose in the northbound lanes of 280. headlights moving northbound. we know a lot of folks are trying to catch flights today. today is supposed to be the busiest travel day of the week and 101 is delay-free all along the peninsula if you are heading up towards san bruno or towards the airport. get your chains, though, if you are planning a ride your opinion the sierra. chains required on 80, 50 and some road closures on 88 and stretches of 4. mass transit if you want to use it is on time for bart, ace, muni and caltrain. and, of course, remember our radio partners when you hit the roads, kcbs 740-am and 106.9- fm. back to you. >> thank you. time now 6:19. here's a check on some of today's top stories. a manhunt this morning for a rapist. berkeley police say 27-year-old omar sosa climbed into an unlocked bedroom window on saturday morning and attacked a
6:20 am
13-year-old girl. police believe he and the family knew each other and they think sosa is headed to mexico. the busiest day for air travel could get more complicated because of a planned protest. there is a call for passengers to reject the full-body scans at some airports on wednesday and insist on a patdown instead. the head of the tsa urges against that and says screening procedures could be tweaked to be less invasive. san francisco supervisors are considering a new charge at the grocery store, a 10-cent fee for a bag, paper or plastic, even if it' recyclable to encourage people to bring their own bags. >> so just in time for christmas, are you looking for an unusual pet? well -- >> no! >> yes, you are. come on. your children would love one of these. plenty of furry critters in san jose will be ready for adoption soon. animal rescuers think they have about 1,000 rats in their care. they were rescued from a rat hoarder in l.a. and relocated to the warehouse space of a pet store in san
6:21 am
jose. the group says they make great pets. >> a rat thinks of you as a friend. it's like having a little dog. these all originated from one pregnant rat that the owner allowed to be loose in the house. >> our biggest priority now that we have them here is separating the boys from the girls. >> look at this shot! the humane society took this picture inside the hoarder's home where the animals were found. rescuers plan to send the rats all over the country to get them adopted. >> all righty, then! you know,over a problem with spieders. rats, i -- i just -- you know. yeah. >> maybe the military could use them? i saw a story in the paper about how they are using rats to find explosive device. >> okay! there you go. we'll find them a home for sure. 6:21. they cost about $25,000 each. the design flaw in more than 1,000 muni bus shelters. >> plus, how about this deal? a penny for a droid. it's true! how long consumers have before
6:22 am
the deal ends. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

welcome back. chopper 5 is showing us live traffic conditions on westbound 580. they are headed towards oakland now. so far, no big hot spots despite the damp roadways but the metering lights are just turned on at the bay bridge toll plaza so we'll take a look at that plus a check of mass transit. a full look at your morning
6:25 am
commute coming up. 6:24. if you're driving somewhere for thanksgiving dinner it's going to cost you more. the price of gas has shot up 5 cents in the past two weeks. 27 cents since september 1. and that could mean that people have less money to spend on their holiday shopping which is a big negative for the economy. >> nothing affects the consumer psyche more than the ups and downs in gas prices. you drive down the street and that price is in your face. that adds a big hit to the shoppers' psyche. >> gas prices usually drop this time year but oil prices run because of a declining dollar. here in california, the average price of gas is $3.13 a gallon. the lundberg survey also says that san francisco drivers pay the most, 3.20 a gallon. and if you want the cheapest gas in the state, you will have to drive down to fresno at 3.09. dinner or turkey day will cost you more this year. the food institute says turkey prices now average $1.05 a
6:26 am
pound. that's up from 79 cents last year. there's also a price hike in potatoes, sweet potatoes and onions. but the good news, frozen carrots, green beans and corn, they are all lower this year. and a reminder this morning, cbs 5 is teaming up with whole foods to feed hungry families this holiday season. we have kicked off our "food for bay area families" fundraiser. you can help by donating non- perishable food items at any whole foods or you can make a cash donation at the checkout. find more information on our website, cbs5.com. 6:26. you may have noticed new bus shelters in san francisco. >> but this morning, one problem is raining down on muni. the concern especially during this time year. berkeley police looking for a man suspected of raping a girl in her bedroom. that story coming up. could changes be on the way for controversial security procedures at airports? i'll tell you what the director of the tsa is saying this morning.
6:27 am
and we still have a few showers out there this morning. hi-def doppler showing most of them in the north bay. how much rainfall during the day and what about the week? we do have a holiday approaching. i have your seven-day forecast coming up. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

6:31 am
through a walk through metal detector or opt out of the advanced new technology. >> not if i could avoid it no. who would? >> reporter: now take a look at this youtube video showing a boy being searched without his shirt on at the salt lake city airport. the tsa says the boy triggered a metal detector and the father took the boy's shirt off but this incident was very disturbing for other passengers who can be heard on this tape making comments like, are they harassing the kid? and this is ridiculous! now, back to those security patdowns. the tsa now saying they must be as minimally invasive as possible. sydnie, what changes, if any, and when to this patdown procedures at this point we simply do not know. >> mark, thanks very much. mark sayre in san jose. some people are talking about there may be a protest on wednesday. is that right? one of the busiest travel days? >> reporter: indeed. it's the opt out protest asking for people who don't approve of these new security measures to opt out of the full-body
6:32 am
scanners. the tsa director this morning saying he hopes people don't do that because it will create a backlog on wednesday. >> certainly ruin the start of the holiday for a lot of people. mark, thanks very much. mark sayre in san jose. travelers will also have higher prize this holiday season. farecompare.com says plane tickets are up 59% compared to last thanksgiving. hotel and gas prices are higher as well. 6:32. some new bus shelters in san francisco are leaving some riders al wet. this is marked and 2nd street. the new open design for 1200 shelters is supposed to make it easier for people with disabilities to get access from behind but that leaves part of the shelters vulnerable to rain particularly if it comes down at an angle. each new shelter costs about $25,000. also new this morning oakland police are looking for the gunman who killed a man and

6:35 am
predator is no longer in our city and we're diligently pursuing him. >> reporter: an officer describing the severity of the attack told the daily californian, "it was not two minutes, it was a significant sexual assault." police say the victim provided information needed to put out an arrest warrant 18 hours later. police say if you have any information about the suspect, they urge you to contact the berkeley police sex crimes detail at (510)981-5734. >> sharon, thank you. sharon chin in berkeley. you may notice some wet roads on your way to work. >> let's go to tracy humphrey with a look at your forecast. >> hey, good morning, ladies. we have a few roads out there that are wet. over the course of the weekend we got dumped on saturday. a few showers out there for sunday. and today, still a few showers remain in the forecast. so here we are, santa rosa just a few showers out there for

6:37 am
overcrossing. elsewhere this made bridge is find towards the toll plaza and still looks greats across the span in either direction. back to you. >> thank you. a hearing is set this morning on efforts to block california from selling state buildings. the state hopes to raise more than $1 billion by selling two dozen buildings. the suit contents the sales are unconstitutional because they include court buildings and the state judicial council has not given it approval. the plaintiffs are two former members of the state building board. we have a warning for people in san jose this morning. police are investigating a scam with a money wire transfer business. they say this company operated under the name of the three men.com. it would keep the victims' money instead of transferring the funds. police are checking to see if that same company also scammed people with prepaid phone cards. in just about two hours, a prison inmate at san quentin will give his plea in the

6:40 am
another fee. it just gets ridiculous. >> reporter: this no paper paper may be available around christmas, next year. possibly. news corp is betting people will be more willing to pay for something like an app as opposed to a website to get something. i'm matt bigler live in san jose for cbs 5. thank you. 6:40 now. hold off on your shopping plans. consumer reports names the nicest an naughtiest businesses. >> plus the 10-cent fee one bay area city wants to impose at the grocery store. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
