more pipeline testing. good morning, everyone. it is thursday, the 28th of april. thanks so much for joining us. i'm sydnie kohara. >> hi, everybody. i'm frank mallicoat. the time now is nearly 5:00. we are going to kick it downstairs to lawrence because he has nothing but good news on the weather front. a little windy, but i guess just sun, sun, sun. >> hold on to your hats, though, those winds are going it blow around the bay area today but i think we are going to squeeze in a lot of sunshine toward the afternoon. still, it is mostly clear already in many of the valleys. temperatures there into the 40s. a few clouds inside the bay already getting breezy here. the winds kicking up now along the coastline. could see some winds 30 miles per hour probably some gusts higher than that toward the beaches. we'll have more sunshine and warmer weather coming up. now let's check on the traffic with elizabeth. streets block, ramps blocked in dublin after some police activity. it's the story our news crews are following, as well. so we'll get an update on this and tell what's going on plus roadwork in the south bay. it's all coming up in a little bit. back to you guys. >> thank you. this morning, a suspect is
5:01 am
dead and a deputy is in the hospital. let's go to kiet do in dublin, with what led up to this violent confrontation. reporter: good morning. investigators are milling about the property of a dodge dealership here trying to gather evidence and figure out what happened. they have been out here for a couple of hours now. this happened at 1:30 this morning when a female deputy came across a suspicious person at the dealership just off dublin boulevard and southbound 680. they got into a struggle and the suspect hit the sergeant in the head with some sort of object or weapon. the sergeant got bloodied up pretty good. she called for help on the radio and then drew her weapon and fired at least one shot killing the suspect the sergeant went to the hospital with unknown injuries. the suspect's body is actually still on the scene here. and the suspect was a well- known transient with a long rap sheet. >> he's known in the dublin community. consider him a transient. so i don't know if he is literally a transient or if he does have someplace to stay but he has been arrested numerous times for fighting and things
5:02 am
of that nature. >> reporter: so he had a violent history? >> he does have some violence in his past, that's correct. >> reporter: and the sheriff's office says the sergeant has been on the force for several years and is very experienced. in fact, we saw the sheriff himself show up on the scene here to check things out for himself. he just now took off to the hospital to check up on that deputy and see how she is doing. as far as traffic out here, 680, the exit off 680 southbound for dublin boulevard is going to be closed at least for a couple of hours. back to you. >> thank you. a call for new pipeline tests and a new federal investigation following the deadly san bruno blast. anne makovec is in san bruno with what pg&e will have to hand over. anne, good morning. reporter: good morning. this was all discussed last night at a town hall meeting into the explosion and the aftermath here in san bruno. you may not be surprised to hear that a lot of the people talking about rebuilding here were talking last night about
5:03 am
using solar and wind power, anything to get away from the natural gas that appears to have caused this explosion. so a new investigation is about to get under way right now. a federal investigation into what happened here on september the of last year when a gas transmission line blew up destroying the neighborhood. federal prosecutors are asking for thousands of pages of documents right now including pg&e's maps, reports and emergency plans. this is on top of the ongoing investigation by the national transportation safety board and the state public utilities commission. speaking of the puc, it looks like the state is going to force pg&e to do high pressure water tests on more than 700 miles of gas lines running in and around urban areas. but pg&e is still hoping to avoid those tests because they could disrupt service, cost $350 million, and take five years to complete. because pg&e doesn't have the records on hundreds of miles of lines, pg&e wants the state to
5:04 am
allow it to use assumptions instead to qualify the pipeline status but several commission members say that is just not good enough. and case in point, the pipe that blew up here in this neighborhood was said to be seamless according to pg&e and it turns out it had a patchwork of seams on it. so the state is just not trusting what pg&e is offering up in terms of information on its pipelines. so investigations continue. >> a lot of trust lost there. all right, thank you, anne makovec in san bruno. a major league coach apologizing now for crude comments he made in front of some young kids at at&t park. this happened during the giants game against the atlanta braves saturday. a family from fresno says atlanta pitching coach roger mcdowell made crude comments and sexual gestures to three men next to them in the bleachers. the father says, when he complained, mcdowell told him, kids don't belong at a baseball
5:05 am
park. >> he turned completely towards me, grabbed his bat and picked it up and asked me how much my teeth were worth to me. >> i think what coach mcdowell did was really inappropriate. usually kids look up to major league players and coaches. >> mcdowell put out a statement apologizing for the way he responded to to heckling from fans. the giants fan attacked outside dodger stadium could be out of a coma this weekend. doctors started lowering sedation tuesday afternoon. the family says four or five days to come out of his system. doctors are watching for seizure but so far there haven't been any. stow was beaten almost a month ago at the giants-dodgers season opener. they did this two weeks ago but he had some seizures, complications. hopefully he can come to and see how he's doing. 5:05. a little windy today, but it's going to be beautiful out there and all of us are already

5:35 am
pipeline's quality. the reason pg&e says the test could disrupt gas service, cost $350 million and take five years to complete. the final decision is going to be made by the puc on whether or not they are going to be required to do all that testing. several members of the commission have already ex- expresswaysed the need for this stringent -- have already expressed the need for this stringent high pressure water testing despite the inconvenience. a federal investigation by the u.s. district attorney's office is under way. it could be a criminal investigation. that is all into what happened here on september 9 when a gas transmission line blew up destroying the neighborhood killing eight people. federal prosecutors are asking for thousands of pages of documents including pg&e's map, reports and emergency plans. this is on top of the ongoing investigation by the national transportation safety board and the state public utilities commission. now, there was also a town hall
5:36 am
meeting last night here in san bruno where people who owned property in the neighborhood talked about rebuilding, a lot of people want to do it soon but also talking about wind and solar power, because everybody is trying to avoid the natural gas that appears to be the cause of this blast. frank and sydnie? >> anne makovec live in san bruno this morning. anne, thank you. allergy sufferers beware of the wind. lawrence has the weather with wind and sunshine. >> we got the sunshine. yup. i got it right in my back pocket and we are going to pull it out today, folks, and you're going to enjoy the sun but those winds will be whipping in the bay area especially at the coast. we could see some 30-mile-an- hour winds at the beaches and probably stronger than that near some of the mountain gaps. we have some partly to mostly cloudy skies along the coast and inside the bay. mostly clear inland. temperatures running in the 40s and the 50s so kind of a mild start to the day really around most of the bay area.
