(grant) it's down a private road in san jose's willow glen neighborhood where everyday tranquility... was shattered by gunfire and murder last night. police say about 9:00, the 24 year old suspect entered a home on laura ville lane, off lincoln avenue...and shot and killed the parents of his ex-girlfriend. the ex girlfriend was not at home at the time, but her two brothers ages 20 and 13 were. the 20 year old managed to escape and call police but the 13 year old remained inside the suspect eventually did let the 13 year old boy go unharmed...but his parents are now gone. the upscale neighborhood was and is...shell-shocked. kim vosterman/heard gunshot: we could hear the bullhorn and police asking him to come out with his hands up eddie garcia/san jose police chief: it's just a tragic tragic
incident perpetrated by evil, i don't know how else to put it sot holly troche/heard gunshot: i'm just sad for the family and the situation they've gone through is horrendous so my thoughts and prayers are with them.(grant)crisis negotiators were brought in but police say the suspect appeared eventually... pointed a handgun at officers...at at least one fatal shot was fired at the suspect. police say he had a history of domestic violence and an active criminal restraining order , in addition the suspect had a history of mental illness. (grant) last night's shooting comes less than 24-hours after another fatal police shooting that took police in east san jose tuesday night. a man was shot outside a home on mount frazier drive. officers responded to a call about a family disturbance. police say a 28-year-old man came out of the garage and charged at one of the officer's with
kitchen knives in both hands. an officer fired his gun. the man was shot and later died. the officer involved in tuesday's shooting is a 15- year veteran. this is, make no mistake, this is a repeal and replace of obamacare. make no mistafe(pam) the president needed 216 -votes.he got 217.... as the house approved the 'american health care act' that could bring major changes to how much you pay for insurance and what that insurance will cover.(pam) two shot that bill still has to be approved by the u.s. senate.... which has its own ideas.(steve ) all that didn't prevevent president trump from calling house repobulicans to the white house for a celebration in the rose garden. we don't have to talk about this unbelievable victory. we don't have to say it again. but it's going to be an
unbelievable victory when we get it through the senate. among the unbelievers, virginia democrat tim kaine. "just on the republican side you have some who are saying that it's not conservative enough, and some who are saying it's way too conservative."democrats are united against it.the bill is passed and laid upon the table not a single democrat vote in the house.instead a song predicting a voter backlash. hey hey hey goodbye "republicans are going to rue the day they voted for this bill." "let me just say that they have this vote tattooed on them."here are some of the changes in the republican bill. pre=existing conditions ... insurers will be once again be able to charge higher rates if you have a history of anything from cancer to asthma. subsidized premiums: they will be based on age, not income, meaning young people will pay less, older people will pay more.medicaid: in the next ten years 880 billion dollars would be cut from coverage for low income americans.it's possible the senate will try to reverse some of these
changes,but then the battle returns to the house. "if they make changes, it has to be somewhat consistent with the outlines we've mapped out here. (steve) bay area leaders are reacting to the g-o-p repeal bill. democratic senator kamala harris said quote "nearly half the country will be back at risk of bankrupt if they get serious illness or injury." and oakland representative barbara lee called it an "evil bill that rips health care from 24 million americans." (steve) in the east bay, a group of students at albany high school is suing the school claiming that their first amendment rights have been violated.(pam) the students were disciplined in connection with racist images which were posted on instagram earlier this year, but they now want their records wiped clean ... because they believe, the
school does not have the right to punish them. kron 4's charles clifford was in albany today. he has that story. earlier this year, racist images appeared on an albany high school student's instagram account. some of the images targeted other students at the school and at least one member of the faculty. the school eventually disciplined more than a dozen kids including several who only liked or commented on the images. sot attorney darryl yorkey reprensents four of the disciplined students. he says three were suspended and one is facing expulsion. in a lawsuit filed against the school, the students are claiming their first amendments rights were violated because instagram isn't owned or operated by the school, therefore the school doesn't have the right to punish them for something posted on that service.sot
mallard says it's unnaccepatble. it shouldn't be tolerated. zero tolerance means just that.> is the father of one of the students who was targeted by the instagram images. he feels that because pictures his daughter and other kids were posted on instagram, it was appropriate for the school district to cast a wide net in disciplining those involved.sot
in their rebuttal to the defense's closing arguments, the district attorney told the jury, there is no explanation for the d-n-a .... other than - garcia torres is the killer. hugs and prayers awaited sierra lamar's father steve.. as he left the courthouse. steve lamar/sierra lamar's father" it's been a long trial but it was just a blink of an eye compared to how long we've been without sierra..."" now we wait, we wait and we pray for justice for sierra....." (pam) the jurors will continue deliberating tomorrow. they can acquit garcia - torres or find him guilty of either second or first degree murder. a first- degree murder conviction carries a special circumstance allegation ... and that would make garcia - torres eligible for the death penalty. (steve) let's get a look at the forecast into the weekend with chief meterologist brittney shipp..
look for additional cooling into the weekend as an upper level trough affects our region. in addition, a slight chance of showers are expected saturday into sunday, yet widespread rainfall is not likely at this time. breezy conditions friday into saturday especially along the coast and higher elevation spots.

((steve lead)) ((landing vo)) two of the biggest challenges engineers are working on with self driving cars is how they will react to unpredictable accidents and extreme weather conditions. kron 4's tech reporter gabe slate met with one mountain view tech company that is working on technology that could solve those issues. he got a demo and found out when autonomous vehicles are likely to land in our driveways. ((pkg)) right now a dozen tech companies are driving around their self driving cars collecting data for their sensors and software so that
one day these will be safe for people to take a nap in during their morning commute.racking up all those miles is good to teach cars about staying in lanes and the signs.. but what about when things go wrong? laszlo kishonti /aimotive says: gabe slate /tech reporter says: in the same way pilots learn how to deal with unpredictable incidents in the sky through simiulations.. aimotive is teaching self driving artificial intelligence software how to properly handle anything that happens around the car laszlo kishonti /aimotive says:the artificial intelligence software interprets what the cameras around the car see to safely operate the car as a human would..once the software is good enough these cameras will be as sharp and responsive as our eyes. possibly better. because we
only have two and see one direction at a timethey outfitted this prius with 6 of their cameras giving them a 360 view around the car and when stitched together it can give the software or the humans in the car this cool real time birds eye view of driving around. . this was something i have not seen before it was like a satellite view from above as we drove around but this video feed is actually from the cameras on the car stitched together and processed by the software. since aimotive is the forefront of this autonomous tech i asked when is this happening like when will regular people have and trust self driving cars ? laszlo kishonti /aimotive says:"by 2030 we will have these on the road"in mountain view gabe slate kron 4 news ahead at eight.. a texas student killed in a campus stabbing. tonight his heartbreaking dying wish .... to another student. plus. the dark side of may the fourth. how the star wars day triggered a high school evacuation. and next. another airline making headlines...
"so what are we supposed to do? i've got two infants, and my wife. we've got no where to stay. there's no more flights. what are we supposed to do? sleep in the airport? no, no you should've have thought about that before you over booked the flight. i paid, for that seat, i paid for that seat." (steve) it has happened again. yet another american airliner... having to apologize and explain why went wrong on one of its planes.(pam) this latest video involves delta... and a family trying to fly back to southern california after vacationing in hawaii.
grant lodes is here to explain this situation, and what delta is saying about it. (grant) tonight delta has just released it's second statement...more apologetic than the first...and it's offering to pay this family...but the airline still hasn't been able to explain why the family was kicked off the plane. this was late last month...but the video was uploaded yesterday... here's the deal... these parents have 3 kids. two toddlers and an 18 year old. the parents sent their 18 year old home on an earlier flight...so their one year old could sleep on the red-eye... in a carseat...int he seat initially purchased for the 18-year old. the flight
crew tried to make the parents hold that one year old on their lap instead...saying federal law requires kids under two be on a parent's lap. thing is...that's not true...in fact..delta's website recommends...for safety...that kids under two ride in a carseat...positioned on a plane seat. it's uncelar if the parents transferred the ticket from the 18 year old to the one year old... but someone tells the dad his family has to get off or they'll be thrown in jail. (brain schear/ kicked off flight): "right, i bought him a ticket on another flight so that my son would have a seat and your saying that you're going to just give that away to someone else when i paid for that seat. no you need to do what right, i bought the seat... and you need to leave us alone."(grant) ultimatley the schear's decided to get off the flight to avoid further conflict.
they had to pay another 2- thousand dollars for another flight home. (grant) now delta's latest...more contrite statement says the following: "we are sorry for the unfortunate experience our customers had with delta, and we've reached out to them to refund their travel and provide additional compensation. delta's goal is to always work with customers in an attempt to find solutions to their travel issues. that did not happen in this case and we apologize."== the airline says it is investigating. (steve) the mother of the stabbing victim at the university of texas is now speaking out about the death of her son.. 19-year old freshman... harrison brown.. is being remembered as a friendly...outgoing person... he was killed on monday when another student went on a stabbing spree at the school. harrison's mother lori says she spoke with her son just a few minutes before he was killed... then 3 minutes later she got another call from harrison's phone...this
time it was not her son on the other end of the line.. lori brownharrison brown's mother harrison's family says a memorial will be held for him saturday afternoon in his home town of graham texas. the suspect.. kendrex white is charged with murder. (steve) a stormtrooper costume caused quite the commotion at a high school in wisconsin this morning.(pam) people near the school saw a student in costume... walking towards the back of the school... some students did not think anything of it... but other students were alarmed and called the police... police say, the costume looked like the student was wearing a bullet proof vest which caused
alarm... so the school was evacuated as police went inside to investigate... officers questioned the boy, and say, his costume was an innocent mistake. students eventually returned to class.

(pam) sadly, mail theft has become a common occurrence... usually we hear about mail and package thieves.. and even with video, often there is not enough evidence for police to make an arrest..(steve) but every now and then the bad guy makes a mistake.. this is one of those times. this is a community mailbox in pleasant hill; on the box is a note which instructs people to pick up their mail from the concord post office . i have shown you similar notes before all around the bay area . this mailbox on brandy wine lane was according to a source has been hit close to a half a dozen times in just six months
except on day everything changed we get a report from a resident on brandywine lane reporting that their mail box had been broken into and that there was a key stuck in the lock the key wasn't a key at all in fact this is what a post office mailbox key looks like . what was found appeared to be half ofa pair scissors that gets filed down that was filed down custom to fit these types of key locks this is when thing got better it was determined that there was some video of a neighboring resident from some good quality cameras the good quality camera clearly showed the licence plate and something elsethe video captured both suspects sitting in the cab of the pickup truck two woman and apparenty another officer reconized one of the ladies from a prior mail thieft case and the rest was history well not really history . they were both arrested and they were both charged y the contra costa county district attorneys office with mail theft and possion of stolen property.one was also charged with posseing burglary tools and violating probation . i tried to get their mug shots but that didn't happen at
least not yetthe intresting part is they pulled into a private street, made a k turn in a driveway that just happed to be very good quality camera nats: ambiance several other mailboxes have been broken into, and in some areas they have installed better mail boxes which are sturder and harder to break into for the record despite all the video evidence they are still considered innocent until convicted usually mail theft from my experience occur at night time when most residents are sleeping this one happened at 730ish in the morning i guess it's true what they say play stupid games win stupid prizes in pleasant hill stanley roberts kron 4 news coming up - it was only his first week on the job... but an atlanta police officer is already going beyond the call of duty... and his actions are going viral. and next. how screen time for kids

(steve) a rookie atlanta police officer went above and officer went above and beyond to help a young girl who was
caught stealing a two-dollar pair of shoes...(pam) it happened back in february.... officer che milton says, the girl told him she was trying to do something nice for her five-year- old sister.... she says, a two- dollar pair of shoes is too much for her family to afford... officer milton took the girl home... and that's when he saw the conditions the family of seven was living in... barely enough beds, a sofa and hardly any food in the house.... officer milton bought four large pizzas for the family. the atlanta police department soon heard the story and decided to share it... the department was overwhelmed with support for the family ... and posted all the information on how to help the family on the police facebook page.
