6:05 am
last night, but the fire crews are out there this morning, just making sure there are no flare-up else. now, people whose homes back up right to the park, they had to evacuate for several hours. still no word yet on how the fire started. coming up for you at 6:30, ktvu's alex savage is there. he'll give us a live report from that neighborhood. we are closely following developments at the circuit court this morning, because just about an hour from now, the justices will begin handing down some rulings. we could learn the out come of two closely watched cases. the circuit court never reveals ahead of time which decisions it will release on a given day. the two big cases everyone is waiting to hear about, same-sex marriage and obama care. we're going to have a live report right outside the circuit court. that's coming up at 6:30. well back here now, people in bay point are nervous now. sheriff's deputies reveal the two recent drive-by killings near highway 4, they were gang-related, and they were kdkaed.
6:06 am
the first shooting happened saturday afternoon while the most recent one happened late tuesday. in that tuesday night shooting, shots were fired at a man and woman as they drove near the willow pass road ramp to westbound highway 4. now, the couple was able to drive to a hospital, but 19-year-old patricia ochoa later died from her wounds. a-year-old man is listed in stable condition. >> i drive up and down the freeway every day. my mom and dad live out here. i was born and raised here, and it's scary. >> now investigators have connected that shooting to one on saturday afternoon on highway 4 near bailey road. twenty-year-old thomas mendez of pittsburgh was killed in his car. investigators say all three victims of the two shootings, they were targeted. the sheriff's department says the general public shouldn't be concerned about driving on highway 4. san jose police are asking for help to identify two men caught on camera in a daring robbery. take a look. police say one of the men ran
6:07 am
up to two women inside a parking garage at south second street, and grabbed their purses. one of the women fell to the ground. the second woman was there standing by. they -- both of the men then ran off. the attack happened at 1:30 in the morning on sunday, june 14th. anyone who recognizes the men is asked to call san jose police. bart is considering a plan to reopen the public rest rooms at its underground bart station. they have been closed almost 14 years since the september 11th terrorist attacks, and ktvu fox two reporter tara moriarty at the pal street station in san francisco where bart could test the idea that would include redesigning the rest rooms. >> reporter: yeah. these new rest rooms would have a much more open design. the toilets would still be behind closed doors, but sink would be outside and monitored by surveillance. these from the bath rooms. the new doors would be semi opaque and have gaps at
6:08 am
the top and bottom. the do sine came about in order to discourage things like drug use, vandalism, and other suspicious behavior. the test-run rest rooms would be located here at the pal street station and 19th street station in uptown oakland. you may recall bart closed all of its bath rooms after 9/11 because of potential terrorist threats. most of those rest rooms have reopened except for the ones at the ten ends ground stations. most passengers we talked to say they approve of the idea. >> i believe it's a good idea to have the rest rooms back open. you don't know how many folks that come through here from all around the world who need to use the restroom in an emergency, and they don't have time to make it to the mall or go to the gap building, which is over here. . wherever they need to go, either they have to pay or get up there to the third floor. >> reporter: bart says it received a lot of complaints about the stench of urine and fe chris at entrances. passengers blaming the problem on the closed
6:09 am
restroom. now this idea doesn't come without a price tag. it would cost about a million dollars each year to clean, monitor, and repair those rest rooms. and the plan is going to be discussed at tonight's board meeting at 5:00 in oakland. live from san francisco, i'm tara moriarty. back to you. >> we'll follow that meeting. thank you, tara. 6:09 is the time. bart has confirmed plans to shut down service during two weekends later this summer. bart says it won't run trains between we could oakland and the embarcadero stations between saturday, august 1st. now, during the closure, crews will repair a section of track near the trans bay 2. bart will run buses between downtown oakland and downtown san francisco during that time. time now 6:09 here on mornings on two, and a watchdog agency is accusing whole foods markets of overcharging customers by overstateing the weight of prepackaged item else. now, the city's department of consumer affairs claims it tested 80 different
6:10 am

6:33 am
marriage across the country. another could spell the end of obamacare. reporter doug luzader outside the courthouse. good morning. it's going to be a busy spot doug. >> reporter: it is. we don't know what's going to happen today. part of the mystery of the court. we obviously don't know how these decisions are going to come down. we don't even know for sure if they're gouge be released today, be the court's term ends next week, so very soon they have to release decisions on about a half dozen cases, two of which are being very closely watched. the two big cases with just days to go. as early as today, the circuit court the circuit court could rule on the constitutionality of gay marriage and the future of obama care. this could be the day so many have been waiting for. >> for circuit court watchers like us, this really is kind of world series, super bowl all rolled into one. >> reporter: we already saw huge crowds when the court heard arguments in
6:34 am
ob,rgofeld v. more and more states have chosen to allow same-sex unions, but% set a national precedent. >> the nation has been moving in the direction of marriage equality, and many expect that the circuit court will follow suit. >> reporter: and then there's obamacare. king vburwell, as the court calls the case, and four words that are either something of a typo, oversight, or something intentional that could unravel the wall. the affordable care act says lower-income americans could qualify for health insurance subsidy only through health exchanges that are, quote, "established by the state." the complication is 34 states did not establish exchanges, and if they're left out, the entire system could collapse. >> this is one of those classic instance where is you have some people saying, "look at the text of the law." you have others talking about the policy consequences that would follow. >> reporter: now, just to give
6:35 am
you a little flavor what it's like outside the circuit court, you see a lot of running shoes out here, because some people jog here to get the decisions once they're released. and we're talking about the physical paper, and then come sprinting out the courthouse, actually deliver them to the media. so we should know, indeed, -- what time is it now? twenty-five minutes or so. whether these decisions are going to come down today. >> that's funny you showed us the dresses and the running shoes. they literally have to run down all those stairs when they get that decision. we're glad you're out there. like you said, about 25 minutes from now. we're going to be following this, checking in with you for that. thank you, doug. and again, closely monitoring the action this morning at the circuit court. we're going to bring you the ruling as soon as they are handed down. whatever they decide on today. coming up at 7:00, we also have a law professor in the studio to help us black down everything that comes in. dave? time is 6:35. back here in the bay area, a
6:36 am
brush fire in east contra costa county fanned by really strong winds. it's fully contained now. the quickly moving fire shook up a lot of people, and also prompted evacuations. ktvu fox two's alex savage joining us live. you're in ant i don't care. the fire is contain, but it's still not out, sit? . >> . >> reporter: they're keeping an eye on a few hot spots. they have it fully controlled. been a long night for firefighters to say the least. they've been out here throughout the night keep an eye on the hillsides just beyond where we are. you can see they're charred. you can see, time to time, smoke rising from certain areas. we have seen fire crews up on those hills, keeping an eye on those hot spots to make sure nothing flares up. as we come over here to the left-hand side in this neighborhood, you can see how close the flames came to some of these homes. that is not far away from the backyards of these homes. the good news, though, this morning, this fire is officially 100% contained, but obviously a lot of anxious moments for people who
6:37 am
live here. . this fire quickly grew to about 500 acres yesterday afternoon with helicopters and air tankers being called in to make drops. flames crept dangerously close to quite a few homes, and a number of people were evacuated along grumsby drive, because their places backed right up to the contra loma regional park. this fire was burning through dry brush. now, some neighbors worried and, of course, packed up their cars. otherwise, they stayed put. we saw some folks grabbing garden hoses, trying to do what they could to spray down their houses as the flames came closer. things very intense for quite awhile, but people were impressed with just how quickly those cal fire crews gave the upper hand. >> the guy with the helicopter with the bag of water, i mean, he was going back and forth from -- over the hill. so he was getting full of water and coming back real fast. >> reporter: and in the end,
6:38 am
the good news is no homes were lost out here. really incredible, given the fact we are dealing with such dry conditions here in the middle of this drought and the fact it was such a warm day yesterday, and you also had the winds to contend with as well. obviously, a real sense of relief in this neighborhood. crews know they are not out of thed woo. shaping up to be a very busy fire season. and in fact, cal fire sent out a report. essentially what they said is, just in the last week, they had crews battling 275 separate fires across california, dave. so they are going to have their hands full this fire season. this particular fire still under investigation in terms of the cost. >> all right. alex savage. we'll talk to you later. thank you. time is now 6:38. starting monday, three bay area counties will ban outdoor burning because of the fire danger. cal fire suspending all permits for outdoor residential burning in alameda,
6:39 am
contra costa, and santa clara counties. that includes burning branches and leaves, wants homeowners to clear away dead or diagnose shrubs, also trim tree limbs to reduce that fire danger. well the fire in ant i don't care, alex was just telling you about is one of several burning around california. one of the biggest is a 17,000- acre fire still burning out of control. it's near the nevada border. that wildfire started last friday. it's only 10% contained. parts of highway 4 and 89 remain closed this morning. no buildings have been damaged so far. but the flames are moving closer to cabins now. several nearby campgrounds have already been evacuated while the mountain town of marclayville, it's on standby. 990 firefighters have been brought to the area to battle the flames, which was tryingered by lightning. now, in northern california california, a big wildfire northwest of l.a. is 45% contained. look at these pictures. now, this started yesterday
6:40 am
afternoon. it has burned 350 acres. more than a thousands people had to evacuate, and a part of the i-5 freeway was shut down. but all the evacuation orders, they were lifted last night. one firefighter had to be treated for minor injuries. oakland police say they are working on new strings to crack down on side shows, and this comes after a police officer is injured in a freelance photographer shot at. . >> this youtube video shows a side car early saturday morning. oakland police say, when officers responded, someone threw a bottle, hitting a female officer in the place. she had to undergo emergency surgery, and received more than 100 stitches in her face. that same night a freelance photographer was shooting video of another side show when multiple shots were fired in his direction. >> i don't know.
6:41 am
it's been going on a long time. you it stopping? i don't see it stop. >> oakland police say it will increase staffing on the weekends and get help from the sheriff's department and chp. police are also asking for any other pictures or video that show the officer getting injured. they say anyone who comes forward can remain anonymous. time is 6:41. the city of berkeley now joining a criminal investigation into last week's deadly balcony collapse, where six people were killed and seven others were hurt. now earlier, berkeley city officials announced their investigation was over and that investigators were not looking into whether crimes have been committed. however, the cold front the is reporting berkeley's position changed. the allegheny county da's office said it would investigate the balcony collapse where those six people died, and seven others were hurt. it's 6:41. we are learning more about those deadly shootings near highway 4 over the past west. coming up at 7:00, the
6:42 am
connection between the two, and what police are saying about public safety. >> would you drink recycled toilet water. how far people are willing to go when it comes to the drought. . >> still looks good. we'll tell you more about these commutes coming up. >> except for a little fog on the santa cruz coast, it would be sunny, warm to hot for everybody.
6:43 am
6:44 am
6:45 am
