targeted road rage shooting at 580 eastbound near airway boulevard. the suspects drove off in a 2019 honda accord. and then this morning on eastbound 80 near macdonald boulevard in richmond another shooting, chp golden gate division is insisting that the roads are safe and this isn't random. >> all three of these shootings appear to be targeted. >> reporter: investigators are gathering information from the shot spotter systems on highway 4 and i-80 and say more cameras would help. >> it's definitely a conversation that's been had and we are seeing more camera systems that are out on the freeways and we'll see if the camera system in this case will help in investigating this incident. >> reporter: if you feel like there's been a lot of shootings on bay area highways in the past few years, you aren't wrong. since november 2015 there have been 185 shootings killing nine people. chp has only made 39 arrests in those cases. >> witnesses are key to a lot
of these cases. it's important for people to realize that if we want to stop this, that a lot has to do with people being able to come forward that have that information. >> reporter: now the chp says everyone in the cases from this weekend is cooperating with them at this point, but they are looking for more witnesses who could possibly identify more vehicles involved in these shootings. liz, back to you. >> thank you. turning now to weather. >> these gorgeous conditions we've had and they've been nice, won't be sticking around much longer unfortunately. >> taking a live look as the sun goes down right now. tomorrow this view may look a lot more cloudy. just soak it in! >> yeah. our chief meteorologist paul deanno here now with the wet weather moving in t , paul. >> -- in this week again, hey,

everything away, just don't be near my niece and my nephew. >> reporter: it's frightening to upwatch, an intruder just steps away from the 1-year-old sleeping in his crib. >> that's when i freaked out because my sister's son does the video from that camera. you can see my nephew in bed and he was like looking in. >> reporter: shindele's 4-year- old niece was in the next room over. the suspect went over a gate into the backyard and through a window before yanking the wires to some of the cameras inside, but not all of them. when you saw him open that door, you knew your nephew was in the room. what went through your mind? >> i got chills. i started crying. i was just like why? >> reporter: her sister and children were inside the home sleeping. it was around 7 a.m. sunday. her sister's husband just left the house. >> her husband was checking up on them through the camer asked
was there an earthquake or something and my sister was no and he said where's my desktop and my sister was like oh, my god. we got robbed. >> reporter: the intruder was in and out of the home several times taking a laptop, ipad, speakers and cell phone. the family dog usually barks, but it didn't this time. shindele said her sister and husband plan to get a bigger dog. that obviously didn't go off. >> no. they just got this. >> reporter: in the last 24 hours installed very noisy window and door sensors after a very frightening wake-up call. vallejo's police captain tells me this evening they've made no arrest. they hope to get more information from the public. anyone with information is urged to contact them as soon as possible. in vallejo, juliette goodrich, kpix5. the friend of a san jose woman who was killed in her own home is demanding justice tonight saying the issue at stake is much bigger than this one murder. the suspect, carlos arevalo
carranza is a homeless undocumented immigrant with a long criminal history. detectives say he entered bambi larson's home on february 28th and stabbed her in the neck and torso. local author diane coleman was bambi's friend for years. >> and i want to know why he was allowed to be here and why thehell he wasn't taken and put somewhere where he could never get back out and do this. it's much bigger than her poor grieving family or a poor grieving friend. this is much bigger now. >> carranza was deported in 2013 but returned to the u.s. and has a long rap sheet. i.c.e. had asked to take custody of him four times, but santa clara county has li woing wigrancio mayo breed is calling on major league baseball. she wants greater accountability over the incident involving giants ceo larry baer. baer was caught on video dragging his wife out of a chair on march 1st that caused
her to fall to the ground. it was over a cell phone actually. baer has taken a leave of absence. the mayor said, "every little girl, every woman should be able to attend a join game with a clear sense of the organization's values. i share in the call to action for the women who have written the commissioner calling for greater accountability." >> we ought to hold our leaders, especially in our sports arena, to, you know, a high standard of excellence so that we send the right message. there needs to be consequences. what those consequences are are yet to be determined as we know, but as far as i'm concerned, there has to be consequences for that kind of behavior. >> to be clear, baer and his wife were stngovcellout of her chair. the sfpd investigation into the baer indent is ongoing. wild scene in vallejo, sideshow caught on camera in broad daylight. this one happened near the
intersection of bw williams drive and mini drive yesterday. drivers were doing donuts and spinning their tires smoking up the street right in the middle of an open road right during the day. vallejo police have been chasing and breaking up sideshows they say over the past few years, but they usually occur at night. a pothole that opened up in santa clara was so big they had to close the street. a 4-foot wide open appeared on lafayette street this morning between highway 237 and de luna. police say a sewer line break caused that pothole. crews were out there all day making repairs. the northbound lanes of lafayette are still closed with no estimated time of reopening. up next it's one of the bay area's most dangerous highways. >> it's hilly. it's curvey. it's not always sloped the way you expect it. >> but that's not the only problem. why it appears the dangers are
getting worse on highway 17. >> march madness fail, how the cal and stanford basketball teams got robbed of their moment in the sun. >> i hate this time of year. i need a couple earplugs to put in my nose. >> plus an allergy season on steroids, why this summer could mean a lot more sniffles and sneezing than usual.

there's been a spike in car crashes along highway 17 through the santa cruz mountains. >> it's hilly, gorgeous and dangerous especially recently. >> so what's going on? kpix5's len ramirez is near los gatos with some answers. >> reporter: in the first two months of this year there have been more than 200 crashes here on highway 17 in the santa cruz mountains and despite efforts over the decades to make this roadway safer, its reputation as a hazardous highway seems to just be getting worse. from sky drone 5 you can appreciate the scenic beauty of highway 17 as it climbs and dips and twists through the santa cruz mountains. but it's a much different story at driver eye level. >> it's hilly. it's curvey. it's not always sloped the way you expect it. >> reporter: highway 17 has
always had a dubious reputation, but this year is one of the worst in decades. in january and february there were 228 crashes which averages four a day on the stretch between los gatos and scotts valley. three of them were fatal. >> i think the biggest reason, it's due to all the wet weather and people are just going way too fast. >> reporter: one of the other big reasons for the increase in traffic accidents is the number of people using this highway. it has climbed to about 63,000 people per day. in the santa cruz mountains, len ramirez, kpix5. a daring brain surgery is giving a group of children a new chance in life. >> these kids were born with a devastating disorder. >> they cannot walk. they cannot talk. they cannot feed themselves. >> kpix5 has the exclusive story behind an experimental treatment that's pioneered right here in the bay area. you'll watch our original report on this life changing gene therapy. we'll do it tomorrow night

bit of it, not a big allergy guy, but yeah. >> if you think about it, it's always a bad allergy season in the bay area because everything grows here, but when you add a lot of water and wind, then it takes a bad situation and makes it that much more fun. at least it was sunny. >> it was beautiful, achoo. as you're sneezing, grab the sunglasses and tissues, if you will. here's a look at the pollen outlook the next couple days. one number sticks out for being low. this is a 1 to 12 scale, the one we use. it will be bad tomorrow, but wednesday it drops. rain comes back. then it shoots back up thursday and friday. if you suffer from allergies, you know this time of year is rough. it will be particularly rough this year. we'll update you with that allergy forecast every day right here on kpix5. livermore is still warm,70, san francisco fog rolling in going to the mid-50s, san jose 67. tonight cloud cover rolls in, lows around 50, fairfield and oakland 50 degrees.
