started. when ground was broken in 2013 it was a tower without a name something that would rise out of the massive transbay terminal dig and reshape the skyline in a way we could only try to imagine through animations of the future. the transbay tower became the "salesforce" tower in 2015 thanks to the largest lease ever signed in san francisco and at that point, crews were still just working on the foundation. by 2016 the building was pushing upwards about the same time another skyscraper grabbed our attention. >> in this particular characters we knew it was sinking except for our inspectors couldn't figure it out. >> reporter: so maybe it's because we looked away for a moment but this tower is now impossible to ignore. moving the skyline up to the south and decidedly away from the skyline we have known since about the early '80s. >> the transamerica pyramid now looks like this dainty little
form on the far end of town over by coit tower. >> reporter: all right. we are going to give you a quick traffic report from 900 feet above the city. that is battery and market streets which as usual is completely clogged up. now, we have all been watching this building go up for the past couple of years now. i think really the last couple of months is when everyone has stopped and started to notice this thing. it peeks over hills and over really the entire city as you can see. and coming up at 6:00 we'll talk about how this building got here and what it means for the city not just as far as the skyline goes but for a very quickly changing city. this building kind of signifies that, allen. >> i have a fear of heights. wilson, obviously, you take a building like this and you add is to the city skyline. it's not by accident, this is very much by design. wasn't it? >> reporter: well, right. i think anyone who has been around san francisco for a long time knows that the city has
wrestled with what the skyline should look like whether you like it or not. there were tremendous fights for decades over all the buildings which are now well below us here. but this building is the product of a whole bunch of things. um, just the -- the -- the taste that the city has and what the skyline should look like, the economic forces that are driving the city obviously right now, so ahead at 6:00 we'll talk about how all those things added up to together to give us a building that will change this city forever. >> great perspective. wilson walker, thank you. switching gears, new at 5:00 the manhunt is over for the bay area man suspected of killing his ex-girlfriend right in front of her two young children. kpix 5's jessica flores is live in richmond with how police found him. jessica. >> reporter: elizabeth, they found him in sacramento and we were here at the richmond police station as detectives drove him in and just moments ago we actually saw him walk out into a van. he is headed for jail now. and he did have something to
tell us. he tells us, he claims he didn't do it. arrested on murder charges. >> any thoughts at this point? >> no thoughts. >> reporter: now handcuffed and being put on the bus to jail. >> do you have to say for yourself? >> they got the wrong man. >> reporter: richmond police snapped this picture of 43-year- old lawyer dushan mcbride, moments after detectives arrested him in sacramento. he was eating at a fast-food restaurant. >> i think we caught him by surprise. >> reporter: the suspect was on the run police say after killing his ex-girlfriend, 29- year-old ra shanda franklin in front of her two young children. surveillance video starts seconds before the ambush shooting the victim driving up to the stop sign at rheem and 29th. the suspect pulling up beside her. that's when police say he killed her then took off. the victim's two young sons in the back seat. residents rushed in, taking the children from the deadly scene. >> the baby was saying, i misses my sunshine. that's what he calls his mom.
i miss my sunshine. my sunshine is gone. >> reporter: today police thanking residents for stepping up after they asked the public to look out for the suspect and his silver mercedes-benz. investigators say a wave of tips came in leading them to sacramento where they found the suspect and the car. >> this is kind of a -- a proving point that it takes the entire community to -- to really solve crime. and this is such a great example and we really appreciate the public to help us. >> reporter: and police won't say exactly what led them to this suspect but they are crediting good detective work and also all those tips from the public. they say they also got help from the u.s. marshals service. in richmond, i'm jessica flores, kpix 5. the search is on for a man accused of kidnapping his four- month-old daughter last night. the baby madeline was found safe this morning in livermore. police say that they are father michael took off with her from the residence in hotel in mountain view. the mother tried to chase the

people were shocked to hear what gas it was, that crosses many, many lines. >> reporter: president trump was also vague about his plans but it seems he is moving away from his prior stance of not getting involved in syria. >> i do change. and i am flexible. and i'm proud of that flexibility. and i will tell you that attack on children yesterday had a big impact on me. my attitude toward syria and assad has changed very much. >> reporter: now, russia says it was an air strike that hit a rebel chemical stockpile that caused the deaths but the european union, turkey and israel agree with the u.s. that the syrian government is to blame although neither side has produced any evidence to show who was responsible. the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons is investigating. president trump's political guru steve bannon is no longer serving on the national security council. he announced that decision last night in a memo. his role on the council had been criticized by many who

and support the agenda and hope that i can be an asset to him and make a positive impact. >> gayle king also asked about ivanka trump's husband jared kushner and his role in the administration. his recent dealings with iraq and mexico despite having no military or political experience. >> so, you know, jared is incredibly smart, very talented, has a norm must capacity. he is humble in the recognition of what he doesn't know and is tremendously secure in his ability to seek informed viewpoints. he has an amazing team that my father has built at the white house and that he has built that's helping work on each of these initiatives. >> when asked about the criticism that the trump family is benefiting financially from the white house, ivanka trump said it wasn't true. in her case, she said, she would be doing much better
financially if she was continuing to run her business. still ahead, a potential breakthrough for bay area researchers and adha. >> how videogames could make a huge different for kids with adhd. >> plus a symbol of our country making a comeback here in the bay area. where bald eagle nests are showing up. >> and critics calling out pepsi for its latest ad. how it combined a member of the kardashians, protestors and police. ,,

my backyard and take a look at 'em there. >> reporter: there are now 19 known eagle nesting sites in the bay area. from napa to santa clara county. decades of conservation and habitat protection means the bald eagle is now off the endangered species list. >> we are not poisoning them. we are not shooting these birds anymore. and we're seeing a recovery the likes of which we never imagined. >> reporter: the eagles might be incubating eggs but we don't know without looking inside the nest. this man snapped these photos after watching and waiting for hours. >> they are not bothered by people or children and so far not bothered by anything. >> reporter: the eagles have been providing daily teachable moments. stan was at a morning pledge of allegiance when one flew right overhead. >> this is quite amazing actually. this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. >> reporter: so the experts tell us it makes a lot of sense why the eagles are here. really easy for them to fly over to the bay, hunt for fish,
and then come right on back. so we are talking about 19 eagles nests in the bay area. if you look at the entire central coast there are 40 nests. >> it's fantastic. a lot of people are going to be curious. they are going to want to see for themselves. what's the best advice? >> reporter: yeah. so you can come down here to the school. this is on the redwood avenue here in milpitas at curtner elementary school. to get the best angle you have to enter the school property. but the school asked that you do not do that while school is in session. we're live in milpitas. kiet do, kpix 5. thank you. new at 5:00 a new videogame developed right here in the bay area could help kids with adhd. kpix 5's devin fehely on the unusual treatment that's getting attention. >> reporter: from the time stella entered kindergarten life was a challenge. >> a lot of reports from teachers she couldn't sit still or pay attention and was disruptive in the classroom.

happen before. >> reporter: researchers are encouraged, as well. they say a third, 7 out of 20 children with attention deficit in the initial study saw their symptoms disappear after playing the game for as little as 30 minutes a day. >> i would never say cured. i would only say they got below a threshold that typically is related to these kids having attention problems. >> reporter: in san francisco, devin fehely, kpix 5. we are getting our first virtual tour of the raiders planned new home in las vegas. take a look. the nfl released this video giving us a look around the proposed stadium decked out of course with raiders colors and logos. but it also shows what the field would look like for unlv football games. it also includes a look at how the stadium would transform for concerts and events. the nfl gave the raiders permission to move to las vegas last week. they will play in oakland for at least the next two seasons. pepsi is admitting a big fail. it just pulled a commercial starring model kendall jenner over what critics call a tone

music video and film director joseph kahn tweeted i have been studying commercials for 30 years and kendall's pepsi ad is legitimately the worst one i have ever seen. other tweets read, pepsi just made the commercial of the year for coke. another one said, i can't believe kendall jenner stopped police brutality with a pepsi. we achieved world peace. late this morning, the company issued a statement saying, quote, pepsi was trying to project a global message of unity, peace and understanding. clearly, we missed the mark. and we apologize. we did not intend to make light of any serious issue. pepsi also apologized to kendall jenner. kenny choi, kpix 5. >> so far, there's been no official statement from kendall jenner. liz, we are looking for rain and what better vantage point than high atop the brand- new "salesforce" building looking toward the former owner of the crown of the transamerica pyramid. beautiful shot. the weather not as beautiful. we'll have the forecast coming
