your realtime captioner is linda macdonald. bay area freeway...shuttingt down for hours. a flipped over suv the result of a shooting on a bay area freeway shutting it down for hours. good evening, i'm brian hackney. >> i'm ann notarangelo. the shooting happened just before 1:00 near regatta boulevard on eastbound 580 in richmond. brian webb is in richmond and brian, what are witnesses telling you? >> reporter: well, we did talk to a few witnesses. first of all, i can tell you traffic is finally flowing again all lanes of 580 back open after about a five-hour delay. now this investigation gets moving. a high-speed homicide with no suspect in sight. reporter: what seems like a straightforward car crash had a much more sinister start. >> i heard a shot. >> reporter: what did that sound like? >> it was just like five or
six shots, pop, pop, pop, yeah. >> reporter: walker was driving along 580 toward berkeley when he heard several shots and came back a couple hours later to see the crash. >> it's too much! it's too much. too many guns out here. >> reporter: authorities say the man driving was shot and killed before crashing into the median and 1:00 this afternoon. officers immediately closed the highway looking for clues. a tow truck driver cleaned up the mess and traffic was backed up for miles and several hours. >> it's sick. >> reporter: todd lives in the area and says this is the third shooting along this stretch of road in the past year. to him it looks like another case of deadly road rage. >> normally up in this area the last few shootings a homicide of road rage. >> reporter: so richmond police will be taking over this investigation. no word who they are looking for or what car they might be in. live in richmond, brian webb, kpix 5. not far from the freeway shooting a man was killed by an
amtrak train. it happened shortly before 2:00 this afternoon near cutting and carlson boulevards in richmond. witnesses told police the man was walking with a cane crossing the tracks with a woman. police believe the man's cane may have gotten stuck in the tracks and in the path of the train. the teenager who stowed away in the wheel well of that jet is now out of hawaii and said to be back in the bay area. betty yu is live outside the family's home in santa clara. betty, what's the latest? >> reporter: brian, i can tell you that the family of yahya abdi has not come to the door today because of the overwhelming media attention. i did speak with the 15-year- old's brother off camera and he said that yahya is not at home with them tonight and that their dad is returning from hawaii soon. what happens with the teen next is unclear. reporter: yahya abdi has made another trip after surviving the dangerous flight to maui hidden in the wheel well of a plane 13 days ago.
a hawaii state official did not say how the boy left, whom he traveled with or where he went. his family said this afternoon that he hasn't come back to their santa clara house. his brother told me that he hasn't seen yahya since he ran away about two weeks ago. the "mercury news" reports that the 15-year-old has been sent back to california and is now in the custody of santa clara county social services. the agency did not return our calls today. the council on american-islamic relations is helping the family with the media and today said that it is doing its best to protect the family's privacy. the boy hasn't talked about the trip but his birth mother says he wants to reunite with her because he was unhappy in california. hisster and brother told me though that she was lying and yahya had no desire to see their mother who they say left them when they were young. yahya's dad said that his son had been struggling to adjust
to life in america. this really has become a very complex story that many people can relate to dealing with a new country and family drama. again, we understand that yahya's dad is returning back home from hawaii soon. it's unclear when he will be able to see his son. live in santa clara, betty yu, kpix 5. >> by the way, the boy moved to california with his siblings about five years ago from ethiopia. his brother and sister and stepmother say he has run away before but he has never done anything like this. san jose state has expelled three white students accused of bullying their black roommate. police say the students put a bike lock on the neck of donald williams repeatedly taunting him with racial slurs, and barricaded him in his dorm room. news of the abuse sparked protests on the campus last november. the expelled students are banned from enrolling in any california state university. a fourth student linked to the
abuse is on probation for the rest of the college career. the warriors and the clippers are set to play 7th game of the play-off series in a couple of hours but overshadowing the game is the woman at the center of the donald sterling scandal. v stiviano told barbara walters the clippers owner is not racist. wendy gillette with how stiviano is defending sterling's remarks. reporter: v stiviano says l.a. clippers owner donald sterling is confused and traumatized. earlier this week, the nba banned him for life over racist statements he allegedly made during a private conversation with her. she granted an exclusive interview with abc's barbara walters. >> i think the things he says are not what he feels. anyone can say anything in the heat of the moment. >> reporter: stiviano's attorney says a third party leaked the conversation last weekend. >> don't come to my games. don't bring black people and don't come. >> reporter: public outcry was swift and so was the action taken by the nba and numerous
sponsors. on tuesday, the nba banned sterling for life. two days later a subcommittee of nba team owners agreed to move forward to get three- quarters of the 30 owner votes required to force sterling to sell the clippers. >> i think it's going to go pretty quickly. the nba has some rules and bureaucracy but they have to move quick. >> reporter: sterling is also speaking out allegedly telling a magazine, i wish i had just paid her off referring to stiviano who recorded the leaked conversation. >> you do not consider him a racist? >> no. >> do you think he should apologize? >> absolutely. >> do you think he will? only god knows. >> reporter: sterling will have five days to respond once he receives the nba's written copy of the charges against him. then team owners will meet within 10 days to discuss the next step. wendy gillette for cbs news, new york. >> stiviano describes herself as sterling's personal assistant, right hand and wing
man. that's her description. she thinks sterling is being tested right now by a higher power. the warriors are playing in their first game 7 since 1977. vern glenn joins us with a preview. >> 1977? that's before you were born? >> it was. >> long time ago. [ laughter ] you can make an argument that this really is the biggest elimination game for the warriors in quite some time. after all the scratching and clawing, they are in a game 7 play-off game that can define an organization and coaching future maybe. mark jackson. all they have to do is beat the clippers in los angeles! the task won't be easy but the warriors with a game one win there. they were sharp two weeks ago today. they are the underdog. clippers are favored by 7.5 tonight. the warriors are going to see though if l.a. can handle it. >> the pressure is on them. they earn the right to have home court and they have some
stars some in uniforms and one in a suit and tie. the pressure is on them. >> reporter: why will the warriors prevail saturday night? >> we're going to be the more aggressive team. i think at the end of the day that's what's important, you know, we haven't been as aggressive on the road as we have been at home and that's typical but, you know, we have to approach the game just like it's a home game, come out more -- be the more aggressive physical team and we can shrink the floor on blake and those guys, i think we'll be fine. >> reporter: go get 'em, 23. >> thank you. >> that game is in a little less than a couple of hours away. i just cannot wait to see how the warriors are going to respond under this -- this -- this huge spotlight that they're in. and the clippers, too. >> no kidding. it will be fun to watch. >> huge. >> see you later. meantime a 3-year-old colt from northern california proved many predictions right and raced to an easy victory at the 140th kentucky derby.

fighting force. the moves are in response to the recent hot spell and the dry conditions related to the drought. cal fire has already responded to more than twice as many fires than average for this time of year. it doesn't look like there will be much to alleviate fire concerns in california because even though there's a small chance of rain it's in the north bay monday night. all of that not boding well. san bruno mountain an old ancient sea floor that got smashed up against the continental crust and now sits proudly and boldly with south san francisco printed on its little face out there. you have some fog and low clouds out there building in along the shoreline. numbers around the bay area, concord 6 9. oakland 65. livermore 67, san francisco 64 and in santa rosa 70 degrees. mild today and windy, too. wherever you see the brighter

then another warming trend. tomorrow morning sunrise fog and low clouds filling the bay. after that high clouds from time to time. so it will be a day of filtered sunshine on monday and the numbers will come down a little bit more so to sum it up, cooling trend continues, slight chance of showers late monday, mostly in the north bay. and then a warming trend tuesday into the weekend. so after a few cool days we'll warm it up again. tomorrow we'll look at numbers mostly in the low 70s in the south bay, 70 at mountain view, 72 degrees in santa clara. and 73 degrees in morgan hill. 69 in brentwood and 72 at fairfield 70 for san ramon. up in the north bay tomorrow we'll start out with a few low clouds and then high clouds in the afternoon. 71 at san rafael and 61 in santa rosa. and way up north in ukiah, 68 degrees if you are headed that direction. so we get a bit of a cooling trend for the next few days. and fog and low clouds along the shoreline, just to get you prepared, you know, for the drizzle we put in some rain on late monday night but not much. tuesday through thursday a warming trend next week will be
back into the mid-80s inland by friday and almost 90 by saturday. so bear with this frigid spell of the bay area and it we'll thaw you out later in the week. >> thank you. okay. the whole newsroom stood silently for two minutes watching the kentucky derby. i don't think that's ever happened! >> they say it's the most exciting two minutes in sports. and it really is! the kentucky derby. they open the gates, boom then two minutes later it's over. you're on the edge of your seat the entire time. the final look at the nba game seven with the warriors and a local boy does in his former team. we'll show you how in a moment. ,,
