bash just wrapping up, tonight we asked the fans did it live up to all the hype and drama? good evening. i'm elizabeth cook. >> i'm allen martin. first we begin with some breaking news near the west oakland b.a.r.t. station where three men have been shot and killed. this is new video just into our newsroom. you see the very large active police scene out there now. >> this happened at 9 p.m. at 10th and center streets about 3 blocks north of the b.a.r.t. station. police haven't released many details except to say there are three victims all adult males. just yesterday oakland's mayor and police chief announced a trash drop in the city's murder rate in 20 -- drastic drop in the city's murder rate in 2018. a dramatic shift in the weather is only hours away. a satellite loop showing a storm spinning off the coast. that's not the only one, brian hackney with the latest on what's happening next. >> yeah.
it's going to be a one-two- three punch by the time all is said and done. the southerly winds will increase after midnight tonight and spread rain over the bay area beginning at sunrise. the hi-def doppler is just beginning to pick up the first few faint echos off mendocino. for us futurecast shows that the brunt of the front moves through about 7:00 or 8:00 this morning and powers through leaving another wave coming through about 11 a.m. after that we get showers for hours until finally things begin to abate around sundown tomorrow night. we get rain and wind at sunrise tomorrow morning about around a 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches of rain tomorrow with 25 to 60- mile an hour wind gusts out of the south and then another wave of rain is going to be coming in by sunday afternoon. so expect things to get wild and wet beginning tomorrow morning. i'll have more details in the forecast in a few minutes. >> thank you.
financial storm clouds are swirling around pg&e tonight. its stock is plummeting amid reports it may be eyeing bankruptcy. shares fell more than 19% in after hours trading. kpix5's andria borba is outside pg&e headquarters in san francisco for us. >> reporter: currently has a $12.7 billion market capitalization. that is below the estimated $15 billion liability it may have for potentially starting the camp fire leaving options running wild here. two bombshell reports about the potential future of pacific gas and electric, the first from mpr saying pg&e is considering selling off its natu division. that i to state senator jerry hill. >> they were doing that at the exact same time they were trying to fool the legislature so that the legislature would look at either two choices. the narrative was either
bankruptcy or bailout. the legislature gave them a bailout and at the same time they didn't come forward, weren't honest. they weren't showing the best integrity by letting us know they were looking at an alternative, a possible way of paying for the liability. >> reporter: the other report from reuters, that the utility giant is preparing for bankruptcy filing due to mounting liability from the deadly camp fire that destroyed much of the town of paradise. >> if pg&e declares bankruptcy, it is pg&e essentially saying that they care more about saving the behinds of the executives than they do about compensating all the people they've victimized. so it sends a message thatis no thing mpensateall of these people it's harmed. >> reporter: since the camp fire began pg&e stock value has taken a nearly 60% nose dive dropping to $19 a share tonight in after hours trading. state senator hill thinks breaking up the utility is the correct move. >> by spinning off their gas
and electric systems i think they will become a size that they can manage. i think what we've seen over the last few years is they've been too big to succeed. >> reporter: millbrae attorney amanda riddle represents more than 700 camp fire victims who lost homes to flames that pg&e equipment is under investigation for sparking. she says bankruptcy only harms those folks even more likely leaving many without enough money to rebuild. >> the victims would be compensated nowhere near what they should be entitled to in a court of law. >> reporter: today in a statement pacific gas and electric spoke about refreshing their board and looking at structural options. state senator hill is wary of any decision the utility makes. >> pg&e will do whatever is in their best interest regardless of anything else. >> reporter: now pg&e also has one other option that has been kicked around and that is potentially selling. the headquarters that you see behind me located in the heart of downtown san francisco in
the financial district, it is worth roughly $1 billion. live in san francisco, andria borba, kpix5. a live look at capitol hill tonight where two hours of high stakes talks failed to end the shutdown stalemate. it is day 14. tonight the president is indicating he would consider declaring a national emergency to get his wall built. >> kpix5's veronica de la cruz is here to break it all down for us. >> two weeks into the shutdown funding for that proposed wall remains the sticking point. congressional leaders met with the president at the white house for the second time this week. a white house photo shows mr. trump standing and glaring at house speaker nancy pelosi. democrats later said and the president confirmed that he is considering an extended shutdown. >> in fact, he said he'd keep the government closed for a very long period of time, months or even years. >> did you say that and -- >> i did. i did say that. absolutely i said that. i don't think it will, but i am
prepared. >> now the president also said if democrats and congress do not give him the more than $5 billion he wants to construct the border wall, he may use emergency powers to divert money from the pentagon instead. >> we can call it a national emergency because of the security of our country, absolutely. now we can do it. i haven't done it. i may do it. i may do it. >> meantime the tsa is seeing a rash of sick calls, hundreds of agents calling out sick this week at five major airports, none in the bay area. they've been working without pay during the shutdown and one airport spokesperson said sick calls are likely to spike next week after agents miss their first paycheck. here in the bay area muir woods will close monday. park officials are acting out of concerns over health and safety. during the shutdown trash bins have not been emptied and restrooms are off limits. there's a plan in place tonight to shore up those d l beams in san

these free tickets. you could see even behind me the fox theater here, the marquee lights are off. they got done with the concert early, wrapped everything up without any lefaare saying it w wait. >> all right, guys, here we go! >> reporter: the curry confusion has come to an end. fans spent the week sleeping in their cars and waiting in wrap- around lines like this for free tickets. >> i'm a little tired, but i'm excited. >> reporter: she's waited in line 18 hours over three days for her free ticket. other than the usual event line drama over cutting -- >> people cutting in. they're saying we're going to roll the camera back and put them out of line. hogwh.>>po ingswent out a hitch. eventuallyeveryone made it into the fox theater for the show including nearly a dozen local basketball teams from across the bay area who were given free curry 6 shoes released tonight.
when steph took the stage, he thanked oakland for being his home for 10 years. >> it's definitely symbolic because in the 10 years the city of oakland has changed drastically. >> reporter: stanley cox, aka mr. fab is one of several performers here tonight. he says as oakland's population changes, it's important to see people like steph curry offer free events for fans. >> most of the things from concerts to just typical things are so far outpriced that the average person that lives here can't even afford it. so to be able to have something like that, it's empowering. >> reporter: so i want to give you guys reactions from a real fan who was inside the entire time. she works for us on the assignment desk for the morning show. she's been up forever, but you're from oakland. how was it tonight? >> it was honestly amazing. it's everything i thought it would be and more. it's just one of those once in a lifetime shows that you won't really get another chance to go
to. so it was worth the wait. my boyfriend waited eight hours in line, but yeah, it was great. everyone, amazing. >> reporter: thank you so much, maya. go get some sleep. she stayed up all day and night for this party and everybody says itwent really well and it was worth it. >> credit to the boyfriend for standing in line, good for her. thanks. a wild police chase, at one point a woman is dumped out of the car, what police are learning from her tonight. >> cameras rolling as robbers storm a jewelry store, what sent this crew running scared. >> reporter: and the party has started, but not all the guests have arrived yet with st days a >> we're tracking a new storm system headed our way and could
