this is the intersection we're talking about. at some point, a group of other men confronted them, approached them, there was some sort of words exchanged or confrontation. one of the men shot the man who had been walking here with the woman. that man died from his injuries here at the scene. we don't know anything more about the identity of the victim. what key can tell you -- we can tell you is that hayward police closed off streets and started to investigate. crime scene investigators were here at the scene. the area around morningside and arf was closed off. this is near mount eden high school. we spoke to several neighbors who had to be let out of the crime-scene protected area one by one. many said they heard the gunshots. they were loud enough to wake them up around 1:00 this morning. >> i was walking out by the -- woken up by the gunshots. >> reporter: you did hear them? >> yes. >> reporter: how many? >> about five.
>> reporter: how close to your house? >> i think it was like -- outside in the street. >> we thought this was a safe neighborhood. i guess it's not a safe neighborhood. >> reporter: a lot of neighbors sort of echoed the same thing, that this is not an area that they would expect to hear gunshots but they would expect to -- that they would expect to see or hear something like this happen. hayward police are not saying anything more about the victim. they said the group of men who are suspected of shoosting the young man -- shooting the young man took off in some sort of silver suv but police have not made any arrests or put out information about a specific type of vehicle or license plate they are looking for. i think they are trying to gather more information on this investigation. investigators left the scene here a short time ago and i'm sure they are continuing to work it over at the department. gasia? >> allie rasmus, thank you. san francisco police are investigating a shooting that killed a 19-year-old woman and
injured two others. this happened saturday night about 11:00 on buchanan street in the western ed addition neighbor -- western addition neighborhood. police don't the girl was the target of the shooting. one the people injured, was a 16-year-old girl. so far no arrests have been made. here is the latest on the big rocky fire -- cooler temperatures and higher humidity, which steve has been telling you about, it's helping the firefighters battle those huge flames in lake county. the rocky fire has grown to 65,000 acres. it's only 12% contained. 24 homes have burned. more than 6300 more are threatened. yesterday firefighters focused on spot fires that jumped highway 20. this fire is very intense. brian flores keepingage eye on the fire. brian will have a live report coming up at 7:30. in sunnyvale, a split- second decision by two sheriff's deputies probably saved a man's life.
he was dramatically rescued on the caltrain tracks. it was caught on video and you have to see it. ktvu fox 2's janine de la vega live in sunnyvale now and you've got that incredible video, janine? >> reporter: yeah, dave, just imagine seeing a car with a person inside stopped on the tracks and then you look up and you see a train coming. well, that was the situation out here at the mary avenue crossing near evelyn. a witness caught it on video. you see the train crashing into the vehicle and a san mateo county sheriff's deputy pull the driver to safety with seconds to spare. it all happened at 6:30 last night. two deputies were on patrol responding to a call nearby when they stumbled upon a car that had crashed into the crossing gate. a sheriff's spokesman tells us that the air bag had already been deployed and a man inside had already been impaired. one deputy ran down the tracks to slow down the train while the other helped the man.
>> saw the train down there and i knew i had to -- at least a short time to deal with the driver in the car. at that point, had to tray to stop the train. >> thes are highly trained skilled law enforcement personnel who have specialized training that not only allow them to safely remove potential accident victims from our tracks but in the last year, they also removed more than 40 people who were expressing suicidal thoughts from our tracks preventing further tragedy. >> reporter: i believe we have a picture that caltrain tweeted of deputies rupel and witten. they are being called heroes for their actions. this crash is under investigation. the sheriff's department says it appears the driver was under the influence. but that's not confirmed. he was taken to the hospital for minor injuries. this accident did cause some delays but both tracks reopened for service just before 8:00 last night. crews were out earlier this
morning repairing the damaged crossing gate but they finished about a half-hour ago. the northbound lane of mary avenue is back open to vehicle traffic out here. if you would like to take a closer look at that crash video and the rescue of that man, who we're told is in his 20s, you can go to our website at ktvu.com. it's also posted on our facebook page. dave? >> all right, janine de la vega. thank you. 7:09. the solano county sheriff's office have told us the name of a young woman killed near vallejo yesterday morning in a brazen shooting. investigators say 21-year-old westbrook was in her car on benicia road just outside of the vallejo city limits. someone shots. show was hit a. >> youngly day was sitting in her car and a young man shot her to death at point blank

teaching jobs. the teachers union says it's becoming more and more difficult to attract new teachers and keep the existing ones because of the pay and the cost of living in the city. the average salary for a teacher is less than $70,000 a year. >> among younger teachers, it's their number one concern. they say i -- i hear it all of the time. i won't be able to stay on the district if i can't find a place to live. >> the school district says another problem is newer college students are pursuing teaching careers. despite the problems, the district said it's confident it will fill all of the remaining positions before the start of the school year. 7:11. a simly convalley pioneer is about to spend millions of dollars to help diversify the technology world. oakland's mitch caper, a silicon valley pioneer, he invented lotus and his wife, they will donate $40 million over the next three years and say the money will go to technology startups. at least half of the company they will invest in, they will

yesterday. the officials say rust at the base caused it to collapse. city leaders say dogs using the light pole to relieve themselves likely contributed to that. the city is launching a program to visually inspect the light posts every day. 7:16. let's check in with sal. everybody behaving for you, sal? >> well, that's a mixed answer there. i can give you -- a little bit. a little bit. >> a little bit. >> we'll start off in the east bay and start off with a look at the traffic trying to get into san francisco or trying to get into concord. we'll look at the bay bridge in a moment. look at highway 4. it's slow here. slow in antioch and slow in pittsburg. the slowest traffic is right here, though, coming into concord. now, trying to get into the city if you are driving on 24 and then 58 to the bay bridge. it looks okay at the toll plaza. 15, 20-minute delay before you make it on the span.
traffic in. i is getting a little bit slow now. northbound 101, especially from 280 up to the airport. it is slightly better than normal, though, these last few days. these are the days before school starts so you will see maybe a couple of days where some of these commutes aren't gonna be as deep as -- maybe on a september morning. 7:17. let's go to steve. all right, sal. thank you, sir. well, plenty going on for early august. that's for sure. we'll try to touch on as many as we can. this it will be a cloudy day. you can see a lot of that cloud cover. it's spinning off from guillermo heading to the hawaiian islands. that low will move in today. sandy anderson sent me this on facebook. i sent it out on triter. sunrise from discovery bay. good morning. beautiful shot there. but the question i posed to people, our observer michael polanski has said in his 35 years in the city he can never remember a july where the lows
don't cool down. it feels humid, sultry. he has a fan going. he said it isn't the way it should be. this is from george bell, even with all of my windows open, my apartment is still 72 degrees. i can't get it below 70 this summer. i've heard many people say that. 50s, 06 os for some. it's cool for a few. very mild for others. observe observer in elna grau -- el granada says i can't remember a july like that we've had. warm, fog, then sun. here is a twist. the inland temps are cunning very cool. the water temps are really warm. 64 san francisco buoy. 63 half moon bay. 64 monterey which is why it's so warm on the coast and in the city. you can't get the lows to cool down unless you are seeing those upper 40s or 50s. we're not seeing that. there is a lot of warm water out here in the pacific. it continues to work its way north. yet the firefighters are
getting great news because it's so cool. upper 40s and 50s and the humidity is very high. upper 80s. 86%, lower lake. 90 for kellvy still. the cloud cover is on the increase. i think we go not only partly cloudy, cloudy to mostly cloudy. this low is backtracking. it will be fear on friday. it looks stronger than the one we have right there. this will give us a lot of cloud cover and maybe a few showers. that's gee armow. you can see the -- guillermo. you can see the moisture. that's what's feeding into our system. it will move to the north of the islands and weaken. it will go down to 45 miles an hour the past few days. look for a lot of cloud cover. there could be a few isolated showers. another system on friday, this is august, i mean, my goodness, things quiet usually. that's not the case here. 60s, 70s. these are near average to above he coast and bay -- above coast
and bay. trl interesting -- really interesting pattern. quick warmup wednesday/thursday and then a stronger system on friday. i think it has the better opportunity for rain than the one we're seeing today. >> how about that? >> i'm loving the clouds. >> beautiful. >> yes. >> absolutely beautiful. >> thank you. >> you bet. 7:20. here we are only august. several months before christmas, that's not stopping one store from doing this. the reason they are trying to jump start the holiday season, in my opinion, way too early. and technology from a bay area company that's being tested with real life

something, i would do it in the morning. i think by this afternoon, we go cloudy to mostly cloudy. there could be light rain. we don't want the thunderstorms. but we'll take the rain. 60s, 70s. mild around the bay. upper 70s, 80 inland. here's sal at 7:30. anything new to report? well, we don't have anything major but we have more slow traffic. let's take a look at what we have now. trying to get into san francisco, the backup at the bay bridge has not been that deep but when you get there, definitely waiting for 20 minutes unless you are one of the carpool lane people. once you make it onto the span, it looks okay getting into san francisco. 880 northbound is still looking good from the coliseum up to downtown oakland. no major problems on southbound 880 passing highway 92. as we look at the south bay commute, 101 is filled in from about 280 solid into sunnyvale. as we look at the nimitz freeway, we have slowing between 92. that's the slowest part all the way down to about stevenson and
fremont. at 7:31. back to the desk. we have new information coming in right now from oakland about a shooting last night near the oakland airport hilton, we've learned the shooting involves a sheriff's deputy. alex savidge is live in oakland. you've been out there since 4:00 this morning. what are the police saying about this. >> reporter: well, good morning to you. a contra costa county sheriff's deputy opened fire on a man who had a warrant out for his arrest last night and investigators say the deputy shot this man after the man apparently pulled a gun during some sort of altercation. it happened around 10:30 in the parking lot in the oakland airport hill on. sheriff contra costa county deputies came here to the hotel to serve a subpoena and a warrant on a man. when they caught up with him, there was some sort of a struggle and the man with the warrant then pulled a gun. investigators say that's when one deputy shot the man. he was taken to highland hospital.
we've not been given an update on his condition. the man shot is not being identified. investigators are not saying why he had a warrant. oakland police are the lead investigative agency here but we've reached out to the contra costa county sheriff avenue office for a comment -- sheriff's office for a comment. they said we need to speak with the district attorney's office. we're in the process of trying to reach someone with the d.a.'s office. no luck. but we can tell you that we've confirmed that a contra costa county sheriff's deputy shot and wounded a man in the parking lot of the oakland airport hilton hotel last night. a man who had a warrant out for his arrest. dave, back to you. >> okay, alex. new information. we'll keep checking back with you. thank you. this was the second police shooting in oakland in two days. early yesterday morning we told you about an oakland police sergeant shot in the hip. he's expected to recover. this happened outside of a home on martin luther king, junior
way. that sergeant and another officer went to the home to question a 49-year-old man about a sexual assault. investigators say before police even had a chance to talk to him, that man came outside and started shooting with an assault rifle. they say that gun was equipped with an extended 30-round magazine. the two police officers fired back, hitting the man who died later at the hospital. 7:34. the rocky fire up in the clearlake area has now burned through more than 100 square miles. that's an area that's about the size of the city of fresno. brian is back now to talk to us more about the rocky fire. crews are making very slow progress here. >> reporter: progress is the key word. can you believe this? 00 square miles, 65,000 acres. this fire is huge. we've been talking about the conditions out there, really prime for this type of fire because of the dry conditions of the drought. veg takes that's dense. steep hillside making it difficult for fire crews to get
containment numbers out there. the rocky fire overnight went in a northeasterly direction. it crossed portions of highway 20. over00 acres burned in the walker ridge area. but crews were able to keep it at that. much cooler temperatures, higher humidity expected today. two factors we hope will help. you recall last week temperatures were in the triple digits. we're approaching one week for the firefighters right now fire crews grew another 3,000 acres overnight. as we mentioned 65,000 acres, remains 12% containment. people we spoke with they are scared they will lose their homes. >> all of us are worried but there's nothing we can do. so we chat and meet each other. some of us have lived close to each other for years and never net and now we are. i don't know. we're all a little frustrated.
we don't -- many of us don't think we probably needed to go last night. >> well, calfire says the same evacuation order issued last night remain in place. they are estimating around 6900 homes remain threatened in an area near clearlake called spring valley. so far, 24 homes have burned. 13,000 people have been evacuated. now, firefighters today will be working aggressively to build control lines and guys this is one of 20 fires burning throughout the state. we're only in the month of august. >> brian, thank you. the rocky fire reminding a lot of people, one of the worse wildfires, it was called the fork fire. it burned in august of 1996. it started near upper lake and burned all the way to indian valley reservoir. 7:36. the ceo and a project manager
of a fremont construction company were each sentenced to two years in jail for the death in 2012 of a carpenter at a construction site in milpitas. the santa clara county judge handed down the minimum sentence on involuntary manslaughter charges to the two. a carpenter died after being purrried by a wall of dirt where the company was building a mansion. that happened three days after city building inspectors red tagged that project after heavy rains. well, someone in san francisco is posting signs around russian hill warning that women are being assaulted in that area. take a look the. the word rapist is right at the top of the flier posted at hyde and leavenworth and some other nearby intersections. police are investigating a series of groping incidents in the area going back to february but they have not confirmed rapes. >> there is a couple of people who have reported that there
has opinion a man hang out who is kind of grabbing women from behind at night. >> since the victims haven't been able to get a good look at the attacker, san francisco police only have a vague description, a man in miss 20s and 30s. police patrols have increased in the area. block parties will be held around the bay area as people take a stand against crime. it's all part of national nightout. an opportunity for neighbors to meet and get to know each other. the goal is economy better prevent crimes. officers from police departments plan to visit block parties in their cities. there are a lot of questions about how a special olympics athlete from albania who was supposed to be completes in los angeles -- competing in los angeles wound up in hayward. he walked into the hayward police headquarters early yesterday morning. police say he was hungry. he was confused but otherwise, he was okay. now he went missing on saturday night at a special olympics event at the university of
southern california in los angeles. the details of how he came north are still a mystery. >> we really don't know. there's been -- he's spoken to a brother who said that he had taken a bus to the -- here in northern california but as far as where he boarded the bus, what bus he was, you know, on, we have no idea. >> a special olympics staff member traveled to hayward to help get him on a flight back to albania. hours after he was found in hayward, a 15-year-old special olympics athlete from the ivory coast went missing in southern california. he's a table tennis player. went missing from l.a.x. he was found yesterday afternoon in inglewood. he's said to be doing okay. it's a first in the history of puerto rico. the u.s. territory defaulted on the debt. what the officials are saying about the financial situation and what some economists think about it affecting the u.s.
first, neighbors are concerned after attempted home- invasion robbery in palo alto. the lies men told to get into the house. good morning. we're looking at the east bay commute and still slow traffic out there. as you look at highway 24, you can see it's kind of grinding out on the way to the tunnel. we'll take a look at some. east bay commutes -- coming up. a lot of high clouds are streaming toward us. there is a little developing. that will give us a lot of cloud cover. we'll show you that -- coming
the violent men, ma'am. >> police are calling it an attempted home-invasion robbery. the suspects used a disguise to try to get away with it. detectives are looking for three men, they released this composite sketch of one of the suspects but unfortunately, the other two were wearing masks at the time of the attempted robbery so the family could not get much of a description. but here's what happened -- on suzanne drive at around 9:45 sunday night, a 19-year-old woman opened the door to find a man who identified himself as a pizza deliveryman. two other men standing by when she told them she didn't order a pizza and tried to shut the door, he forced his way past her. >> he forced his way in and was immediately followed by two suspects wearing masks. one had a semi-automatic handgun. the other had a knife. >> when the young woman's mother and a father confronted the suspects, the men took off running. we just talked to the palo alto
police department, detectives believe the family was targeted. they cannot say why at this point because that could compromise the investigation. the investigator also told us that they are looking at surveillance video from neighbors but what they have right now is not really clear enough to release to us to be able show our viewers. they will look through that. hopefully we'll get clearer video. there's cameras everywhere. hopefully we will get something. there were two younger children in the house as well at the time. very scary situation in palo alto. >> we've heard that. we've seen that scam before. we know to ask for a badge. >> even before you open the door. >> right. >> exactly. once open it -- >> exactly. >> thank you, pam. 7:44. airports across the country on high alert after several bites reported seeing drones flying very close to their planes. there have been three incidents at new york's j.f.k. airport in recent days. one on sunday, two on friday.

>> bump up the thermostat. >> yeah. you may not be thinking about doing christmas shopping now. the holiday is more than four months away. but somebody is thinking about it. this london department store wants you to think about it now. this is the first store in the world opening the christmas shop in august. that's not a joke. i'm serious. officials want international shoppers to be able to pick up christmas souvenirs that they can't buy at home. >> sh -- wow. august. let's run to sal and see what it's like getting outlook the door this morning -- getting out the door this morning. >> we're gonna start off on highway 4 and take a look at westbound 4. you can see it's verying -- it's slowing down. we do have lighter than usual conditions on some commutes.
not everywhere but occasionally something will surprise you and say you say, wow. it's not slower than that. you can see traffic at the bay bridge toll plaza is backed up. this looks typical. it's backed up for 25 minutes. let's me show you the east bay. 58 through livermore is slow. but you will see just a little better than it normally is. 880 backed up from 92 to stevenson. some commutes are getting a break. others are definitely not. 7:47. let's go to steve. >> well, we have some sun. the low cloud deck is nothing compared to yesterday. it's already getting chewed up a little bit. the higher clouds are on the move and they are coming up from guillermo heading toward the hawaiian islands. it's much, much weaker but there is a low to the west of san francisco. that's tapping into some of that. i will show you that in a second. on twitter, ski skim, that's their handle, but they are in clayton. they bounce between clayton and truckee, national weather
service in reno, there are forecast discussions really makes friday interesting but it's hot august nights in reno. what he's talking about? i will tell you. we have two systems this week. there's the first one. look at the developing low tapping into some of the tropical clouds. this will move over. cloud us up. maybe give us rain. the system that they are talking about for friday is retrograding but it's expected to put on the air brakes, if you will, and head back toward us on friday. that has a lot more going for us and that as a better opportunity to give us clouds. that would be friday. there's tropical storm guillermo. look at the moisture streaming off that. that's what's heading over us today and getting tapped this by the low. it will move and rapid raply -- rapidly weaken. high and mid-level clouds are on the increase. the water temps are so warm.
mid-60s for some. 50s for others. the water temperatures are getting very warm. 64 san francisco buoy. 64 monterey. half moon bay, 63. which is why the coastal locations and in the city have been warm. the humidity up, up, up and the lows were way down. they are starting to warm up pretty fast. we had a few upper 40s, low 50s. now it's 50s getting close to 60. the good news, i think they go mostly cloudy. there could be a little rain from that system. the cloud cover is on the way. if you need to do something, i would do it in the morning. that looks like the best bet for sunday. very mild temps by the coast. these are running below average for inland temps. 70s, partly sunny in the morning. cloudy to mostly cloudy this afternoon. this is not a very strong system but for august it's worth a look and i think it does give us a lot of cloud cover here. inland temps will be cooler. quick warmup wednesday, thursday and then here comes
the next system on friday. that i think has the better opportunity for rain. that will linger into saturday. it looks better saturday night into sunday. a big drop -- >> yeah. we're going from 70s to 90s. but then right back down. >> be careful making plans toward the weekend? >> yes. friday/saturday could be a little iffy. >> thank you. 7:49. >> there is a warping for -- warning for windows users coming from security experts. there are reports some computers were hacked and users' information was held for ransom. what not to do when you download the windows 10 update. tragedy at a circus in new hampshire. the sudden change in weather that caused a tent to collapse on the crowd.

airplane wing found on an island in the indian ocean is from flight 370 from the malaysian airplane. if it's from that flight, some question whether it could be possible to study the ocean currents in reverse to determine where the rest of the plane might be. this -- >> if you go backwards, you would get a much larger area than what you are searching at the moment as possible areas. >> it's been verified that the wing flap found on that island came from a boeing 777, the same time a of plane as the missing malaysian airlines flight. it shouldn't take very long do f.m. it came from flight 7 -- very long to determine if it came from flight 730. donald trump, he has
expanded his lead in the presidential polls. all but three of the 17 republican candidates took part in a forum in new hampshire last night. donald trump was not among them. his name was not even mentioned but his fellow republicans won't be able to avoid him in ohio on thursday. >> he was considered as the movie that -- this summer blockbuster that was gonna come and go. but what is durable support in the republican party in 2015? who can say his supporters will go away? we have no idea. >> there could be drama at the bottom of the list. several are on the bubble for making the debate, including the only woman, carly fiorina. 7:55. senate democrats blocked a vote yesterday on a bill that would have stripped federal funding from planned parenthood. house republicans are trying to

still dump carbon pollution into the air. for the sake of our kids and the health and safety of all americans that has to change. >> the president's plan is not going over well with the power industry. the ceo for clean coal industry said this is pad for families who depend on aforbable electricity. a san francisco woman created a hashtag trending on social media. we'll show you how the i look like an engineer got started and show you who is participating. we are live in sunnyvale where an incredible rescue on the railroad tracks was captured on video. we will show you it and you will hear from one of the deputies who helped save the man on the railroad tracks. we're looking at a commute that's getting better in some areas. not quite so good in others. this is one of the good spots. san francisco. northbound 101 looks good.

gusts 20, 25 for a few. but 60s on the temps for a few. had freerts and 50s -- had 40s and 50s. the humidity continues to be high. i think we go cloudy for fightth fire. i think maybe even some light rain is possible. a lot of cloud cover will start to move in later. your best opportunity this morning and then this afternoon, we start to see clouds roll in. 60s, 70s, coast and bay. upper 70s, low 80s inland. slow traffic, but anything new to report? we do have a couple of things. good morning to you. let's take a look. we'll start off in the east bay and you can see traffic here at the toll plaza is getting a little bit better. but it's still backed up for a 15, 20-minute delay at the toll plaza. traffic on the san mateo bridge is busy over to the peninsula especially from the hayward side to the high rise. we have a new crash northbound
85 at 87. the traffic is going to be busy as you drive through. we also have slow traffic on 280 on 101 and on 85 as well even after that crash. at 8:02, back to the desk. police in hayward investigating a homicide in a normally quiet neighborhood. >> allie rasmus is live at the scene. let's start with what police are telling you about the suspects here. >> reporter: well, the information we have on the suspects so far is pretty vague. we know police are looking for a group of men, they believe a group -- someone in the group was responsible for the shooting. but the suspect descriptions they have put out are pretty vague. what we know is that they got away in a silver suv. that's according to police. apparently that is the getaway vehicle. this all happened around 1:00 this morning. morningside and arf in hayward. that's where we're at. before investigators left we did see investigators going through the area with what
looked like a metal detector possibly looking for shell casings and other evidence. at 1:00, a man and woman walking through this area were confronted by a group of men. there's some sort of altercation or confrontation, some sort of words exchanged and then neighbors describedder aing four to five shoots. the man walking with the woman was injured. he died at the scene from those injuries. and again, police said that the group of men took off in a silver suv. now, we spent a lot of time talking to some neighborhoods who say they were pretty su surprised to walk -- pretty surprised to walk out of their doors and find this scene. several said they did hear gunshots early this morning. >> before 1:00 around four shots. we thought it was the fireworks. i just woke up when the -- when all of the police lights reflection in my room. >> reporter: we have no information on the victim. police are not telling us much
about him. they've not made any arrests. there isn't much of a suspect description other than the fact that police believe there's someone in a group responsible for this shooting and that the group then took off in a silver suv. police want to get the word out to anyone in the community who may have seen or heard anything. 1:00 near morningside and arf. again, show you where that is. it's about a block away. we're about a block west of his per yub boulevard and -- hess hesperian boulevard. police are hoping someone else may have heard or seen something so they can find the people responsible. it happened at 1:00. anyone with information should call hayward police. back to you. >> thank you. san francisco police investigating a shooting that killed a 19-year-old woman and injured two other people. this happened saturday night at about 11:00 on buchanan street in the western edition. police don't think that the girl was the intended target.
one of the people injured was a 16-year-old girl. no arrests have been made this morning. tragic story. the solano county sheriff's office has told us the name of a young woman killed near vallejo yesterday morning in a brazen shooting. investigators say 21-year-old westbrook was in her car on benicia road just outside of the vallejo city limits. someone fired shots. miss he westbrook was hit -- miss westbrook was hit and her car crashed into a light pole. we talked to a witness who did not want to be identified. >> a young woman was sitting in her car. a young man shot her to death at point blank range. >> did he walk up to her or -- >> he was there standing next to the car and he killed her. and then he walked to his car and drove away. >> her family told us miss westbrook was on her way to work. she worked at richmond kaiser. her mother also worked there. investigators say the gunman drove away in a blue mor silver sedan -- or silver sedan.

on evlib and mary. they saw the man inside. they saw a coming train and didn't hesitate to help. this rescue was caught on cell phone video. you can see the crash and a man getting pulled by the deputy to safety. it happened at 6:30 last night. those two transit officers from the san mateo county sheriff's office were on their way to another call when they spotted a car is stuck on the tracks. the car crashed into the crossing gate and the driver was still inside. the sheriff's spokesman says one deputy ran down the tracks to slow down the train while the other helped pull the man to safety. >> saw the train down there. you know, i knew i had at least a short time to deal with the driver in the car. at that point, had to try to stop the train. >> these deputies did not hesitate. they acted -- had they not acted, who knows what would have happened? i believe because of their
actions this person is alive today. >> reporter: and here is a fee toe that caltrain -- photo that caltrain tweeted of the deputies. they are calling them heroes. the big question is why didn't the driver get out of the car himself. well, the sheriff's department says it appears the driver was under interfluns but that's not -- under the influence. but that's not confirmed yet. he was taken to the hospital for minor injuries. it caused delays but both tracks reopened. crews were out this morning repairing the damaged crossing gate and were able to complete it before 7:00. so all of the lanes here on mary are open. now, if you want to take a closer look at that rescue, that dramatic video, it's posted on our website at ktvu.com. it's also on our facebook page. >> the video, the timing on it, it shows -- had the deputy been one or two seconds later it could have ended in tragedy. >> reporter: absolutely. the caltrain person was saying these deputies are trained for
this. they were just doing their jobs but very heroic. >> the video is on the facebook page if you want to see it again. thank you. 8:09. we're two weeks away from the first day of school in san francisco. but the school district is still scrambling to make sure they have enough teachers. san francisco unified is still trying to hire 50 more teachers. the teachers union says it's harder to attract and keep teachers because of the salary and also because of the high cost of living in the city. the average salary is less than $70,000 a year. >> among younger teachers. it's the number -- it's their number one concern. they say -- i hear it all of the time. i won't be able to stay on the district if i can't find a place to live. >> the school district says another problem is fewer college students actually want to be teachers. despite all of the problems, the school district said it's confident to fill the teaching jobs before the school year
begins. from the pageant winners to boot camp recruits, coming up, the reason why miss sonoma county is trading in her crown to join the marines. we will depend out who will be allowed to take part in the first republican presidential debate on thursday. and find out where donald trump is standing in the polls. and we're looking at commuters heading to marin. you can see there is a little bit of a backup here at the richmond san rafael bridge toll plaza. we have morning sun. but there is a lot of cloud cover. it will move in later today. we'll take a look at it and see what's in store for later in the week as well.
we'll find out the lineup for the presidential debate. >> doug luzader has more. >> reporter: donald trump continues to dominate and his numbers are improving, as we're hours away from finding out who is making the cutoff for that debate on thursday. u pulling out all of the tops, ted cruz with an unusual way to cook breakfast in a video. machine gun bacon. the gop candidates are doing about whatever they can to get
attention and boost their numbers in advance of thursday's debate in cleveland. and we got a small taste of what a republican debate will look like at a candidates' forum. this event was sober and at times rather awkward as candidates spent most of the time waiting their turn in the front row to be called on stage. >> the american people don't trust washington, d.c. >> reporter: what was missing was not just the give and take of the debate but the person who could lead to blockbuster ratings this week, donald trump. a new poll shows he enjoys a double-digit lead over the rest of the fields with the highest numbers of any candidate so far. >> donald trump was considered by the -- as sort of the movie that -- this summer blockbuster that was gonna come and go, but what is durable support in the republican party in 2015? i mean, who can say his support isn't durable and will go away. we have no idea. >> reporter: what we do know is
his negatives have gone down. more republicans say they are willing to consider voting for hill. among democrats, hillary clinton still dominates with 51% but that's a 10-point drop from june. and joe biden's support is growing, amid speculation he could decide to run. and for republicans and democrats, the biggest issue heading into the election, 30% say it's the economy. in washington, doug luzader, fox news. >> thank you. 8:16. let's get you to where you need to go. hey, sal, do you mind taking me to the bridge. >> i would be happy to take you to the bridge. >> thank you. >> all right. let's go right now to the golden gate bridge. dave and i have this thing about james brown in case you are just watching "mornings on 2" for the very first time today. southbound 101 as you head down to the toll plaza, it looks
good as you drive down from southern marin. i want to show you the maps --or actually, we are -- yeah, we're gonna go to the maps. marin county has improved quite a bit. southbound 101 which had been slow from novato to san rafael. you now it's barely slow but traffic approaching the bridge will be slow. we had a minor accident past the toll plaza. that's the reason for the slowdown. another bridge. that would be the bay bridge toll plaza. that's kind of jam packed about a 20, 25-minute delay before you make it on the span. let's brick steve in here. hello steve. >> hello, sal. >> how are you? >> you know, can't kick too high. >> can't kick too high. if i do at my age, i will be in john muir. [laughter] >> all right. actually, that's not true. a couple of things going on. i posted this. own observer michael polanski in san francisco has been keeping records there. he even supplies the national weather service with information. said he's lived in the city for 35 years. he can never remember the lows
that have been so warm and so humid in san francisco. he says i have a fan. it's not helping. i posted that on facebook and asked for feedback. i have received feedback from mt. shasta to you name it and all of you are in agreement. i appreciate that. if you want you can give me your two cents worth. concord, castro valley, fort bragg, up to crescent city, i've had comments from people saying it's warmer on the coast. two systems here. two. it's early august. rhett me look at the calendar. yep. it's early august, all right. watch this low develop right there. zoom. it's tapping into cloud cover which is just streaming off tropical storm, what was once hurricane guillermo. there is a secondary low. this one will be hee on friday. that -- here on friday. this one is developing rapidly. it will give us a lot of cloud cover. that's tropical storm guillermo. look at the moisture streaming
over us. it will weaken to about 50, 40 miles an hour by late wednesday into thursday. that's the good news. more on that tomorrow. the gudz news. >> no long -- the good news, no longer hurricane strength. there's development taking place to the west of san francisco. for the morning, we get some sun but then we cloud it up and this could give us some rain. 60s on the coast. very mild. ocean temps are extremely warm. san francisco buoy, 64. that's why you are not cooling off in the city. 62, half moon bay. monterey, 64. only -- bodega bay is at 59. they did bump up to 63 yesterday and there's a lot of warm weather water on the -- warm wt on the pacific. some of the coolest waters from bodega bay up to the oregon border. after that it gets very warm. the good news is firefighters got a break. the lows this morning, 40s and 50s. the humidity way up there. 70%, 80%. that's good. i think they will see temperatures in the 80s today
under cloudy conditions. and it would not surprise me if they get rain. this is probably a system that has a lot of cloud cover and very little rain because the dynamics are not that strong. the one on friday looks stronger. some patchy low clouds. we'll get some sun we'll cloud it up in the afternoon. 60s, 70s, mid-70s around the bay. these are actually a little bit above average. the inland temps, upper 70s, low 80s. they are a good 10 degrees bebe low -- below. 70s and 80s for almost everybody including parts of the coast when you start off at 62 it doesn't take much to warm up. quick warmup wednesday, thursday. here comes the next system on friday. that looks even better for a possible rain. >> thunderstorms are possible here. we don't need that -- >> the lightning. >> you take the rain. maybe we can get rain out of that. >> thank you. 8:20. very close call for one family down in the south bay. three men show up on the door and they force their way inside. coming up in 20 minutes, the new sketch released by police and how you can help them find
yesterday. instead puerto rico's government paid $628,000. that put the u.s. territory in default. >> the governor there says the island is $72 billion in the red with a b. they need to restructure their debt but legally, puerto rico can't resort to the sort of orderly debt restructuring available to u.s. states. several bills are being pushed by members of congress trying to change that. gas prices a little lower than last year. that's boosting truck and suv sales. >> that's interesting. >> the major carmakers posted strong american sales in july. but the low gas prices have had the opposite effect on smaller cars. those sales are down. the carmakers are on track to sell about $17 million cars -- 17 million cars, trucks and suvs for the first time since the year 2000. >> let's take a look at what you will pay this morning. according to aaa's fuel gauge report, san francisco prices are 3 toy 57 per gal -- 3.57.
in oakland, 3.48. drivers in san jose and up in santa rosa are paying an average of 3 -- of 3.45. it looks like scam remembers taking advantage. release of windows 10. experts are saying they are getting reports of scam e-mails offering to help users get windows 10. now, if the user clicks on the attachment, it will install a program that will lock your computer, then demand that you pay a ran some to unlock it. the experts say that microsoft doesn't send out upgrades by e- mail so they are advising you don't download any attachments from senders you don't know. the faith of a bay area company is trending. it all started when they posted
billboards. >> a woman started the i look like an engineer hashtag on twitter. it's inspired hundreds of women to post their photos. >> that hashtag comes right as pioneers are about to spend millions of dollars to help diversify the tech world. a silicon valley pioneer and his wife will give $40 million to tech over the next flee years. >> this is huge. they say the money will go to tech startups. at least half of the companies they invest in, they will have founders from underrepresented communities like women, african- americans and latinos. and remember the phrase that kodak moment? that could be making a comeback. >> they released the app. users can print pictures taken on their smartphones or tablets by sending them to kodak printer kiosks directly from the app. that means no need to upload them. >> the kiosk will be in stores like target and cvs.
it's all done within the app. you can order prints of photos you post on instagram or facebook or flicker. the kodak moment app is available for free. it's in the apple and itunes store. >> this could be the first step to kodak rebuilding the are photography empire. remember the company filed for bankruptcy in 2013 after major blows to its sales and profits. >> the company also downsized its presence at kodak park. it used to house all of its employees in new york but now they share the space with 58 different businesses and startups. the rocky fire has jumped a highway. it continues to rage out of control. we'll have the latest on how many homes it continues to threaten this morning. also, there is a change in the weather that may actually help firefighters. an investigation underway this morning after a law enforcement agent from contra costa county shoot as man in the parking lot of the oakland airport hilton. why they were here at this hotel -- coming up.
good morning. we're looking at a commute in the east bay where traffic will be busy on that span. driving from the east bay to san francisco. well, some sun this morning. but we have increasing clouds coming in later today. probably a lot of cloud cover but what about the rest of the week? might we get a little rain in here?
welcome back. 8:30. we're finding out more about a shooting last night near the oakland airport hilton hotel. the shooting involves a contra costa county investigator with the d.a.'s office. alex savidge has the details. >> reporter: well, good morning. we're now learning this was an inspector from the contra costa
county district attorney's office who opened fire on a man with a warrant out for his arrest. and investigators say this man was shot after pulling a gun during some sort of an altercation. this happened about 10:30 last night in the parking lot at the oakland airport hilton. now, several members of the contra costa county d.a.'s office came to the hotel to serve a subpoena and a warrant on a man. when they caught up with him, though, there was some sort of a struggle and the man with the warrant pulled out a gun. investigators say that is when one inspector shot the man. the man was taken to highland hospital. as of last night, he was listed in crate cal condition. the map shot is not being identified. veafs are not saying why he had a -- investigators are not saying why he had a warrant. oakland police are the lead investigate. but we did reach out to the contra costa county sheriff's office for a comment of the they told us to speak with the district attorney general's office and we're -- to the
district attorney's office. we're trying to reach them. a contra costa county inspector with the district tone's office is the -- attorney's office is the person who opened fire on the man last night leaving him wounded. back to you. we're finding out more about yesterday's officer- involved shooting in oakland. an oakland police scar -- sergeant was shot in the hip. he's expected to recover. it happened outside of a home on martin luther king. the sergeant and another officer went to question a man about a sexual assault. before they had a chance to talk to them, he came outside and opened fire with an assault rifle. they say that gun had a 30- round magazine. the two plifs fired back -- police officers fired back hitting the man. he later died at the hospital. 8:32. let's check weather and traffic for you. >> let's check in with steve. >> a lot of cloud cover.
much, much cooler for the firefighters up in lake county this morning. had some 40s, 50s. now warming up. there will be a lot of cloud cover, humidity is up. that will help. and ure system is just rapidly developing to the west and that's going to give us a cloudy, mostly cloudy afternoon. i doubt there's much in the way of rain. but there's a low right there. that's taching into some of this moisture which is streaming off tropical storm guillermo heading toward the hawaiian islands. a secondary system that's moving away from us. it will put on the brakes and head back toward us bay friday. that looks to be stronger. some 50s for lows. a lot of 60s. slow to warm up on some of these. mid-60s for a few. plenty of clouds streaming in. they will start to move in rapidly. already some darker clouds off to the west that will filter in. morning sun. patchy low clouds. a little breezy for some. i will mention an isolated shower or two. upper 70s, 80s. 70s around the bay and in the city. all right, sal.
78:33. things any better? >> things are better. the most eventful thing was maybe an hour and a half ago. the chp put out an alert for a guy reportedly playing his guitar and driving along and driving poorly weaving all over the road. i would say dare say he probably wasn't playing very well. they didn't have smiles on their faces, though. other than that, we are doing okay. this is a look at the westbound bay bridge. it's backed up for a 15, 20- minute delay. no major problems. things are getting a little bit better now as we close in on the 9 -- on 9:00. no problems on the san mateo bridge or the golden gate bridge. there is slow traffic on both. let's move along and take a look at 880 northbound. this surprises me because usually we have traffic. it's slow right through here on northbound 880 and i'm just looking around to see if there's anything down the road that may be causing something not to get through. but i don't see anything. we're also looking at concord to walnut creek. a little bit of slow traffic
here on southbound 680 as you drive down to danville in walnut creek. 8:34 back to the desk. >> thank you. crews will catch a bit of a break today it fooing the rocky fire up in the clearlake area. brian flores in the newsroom with the latest from calfire. brian? >> yeah. i just got off the phone with cal file about 15 minutes ago. you mentioned the good news, we are expecting better weather for firefighters but there is a long way to go until this fire is completely out. the rocky fire remains at 65,000 acressor just over 100 square miles. calfire says it did cross portions of highway 20. they say over 100 acres burned in the walker ridge area. fire crews were able to keep it at that. the fire remains at 1% containment -- 12% containment. crews hope to get a jump on containment. we're approaching one week since this fire started. crews, as you can imagine, are exhausted. they remain steadfast protecting many homes and lives
as they can. >> it's taken its toll. the firefighters, we take care of them very well. they work in shifts and get a shift off. they get time to recover and get wack on the line fresh and -- back on the line fresh and ready to go. >> more than 3,000 firefighters are battling the rocky fire. that include 9,000 total battling the 20 other fires burning throughout the stay. calfire says the same evacuation orders issued last night remain in place at this moment. 6900 homes remain threatened in an area called -- in an area near clearlake called spring valley. 24 homes have burned. 13,000 people have been evacuated so far. now, last night the fire moved in the northeastern direction. but the fire as we've seen is unpredictable and stubborn. when i spoke with calfire they are urging residents to be ready to go at a moment's notice even if you are in an evacuation advisory. back to you. >> we also know that school, the start of school is being delayed by one week because of the fire. some of those campuses being
used as evacuation centers. >> that's right. middletown high school being used as one of the evacuation centers. you can also drop off animals nearby as well. certainly a lot of people being affected by this. as we heard from calfire, 13,000 people evacuated so far. we'll be keeping an update on this throughout "mornings on 2." >> thank you. the rocky fire making people remember the fork fire in 199 one of lake county's worst wildfires that. one burned 83,000 acres over several weeks. it started near upper lake and then burned all the way to indian valley reservoir. 8:37. someone posted signs around san francisco's russian hill neighborhood warning that women are being assaulted in the area. take a look at the signs. you will see the word "reauptist" appear -- "rapist." police are investigating a series of groping indents going back to -- incidents going back

investigators say a couple in their 40s and their three children, ages 19, 11 and 8 were all inside the home when a man came to the door saying he was a pizza deliveryman. the 19-year-old who had answerled the door said they did not -- answered the door said they did not order a pizza. when she tried to shut the door, the three men forced their way into the house. >> he pushed his way into the home and was immediately followed by two suspects who were wearing masks, one of whom was holding a semi-automatic handgun. the other of whom was holding a knife. >> i heard them running. i heard them -- almost like panic breathing. coy rather them breathing. jumped in the car and took i could hear them breathing. and they took off. >> police believe some -- for some reason this family was targeted. they are not giving other information other than that because they are afraid it might compromise the information. the neighbor who heard them
running said it was too -- dash for her to see the -- it was too dark for her to see the car. hopefully we'll have other details. the family just moved into the neighborhood. >> oh, man. >> that's an interesting clue. but a lot of unanswered questions at this point. so hopefully we will get more information as they look through the surveillance video. >> you brut up a good point -- you brought up a good point earlier. don't even open the door a crack if you are not directing directing -- expecting anyone. >> how did they just run away? we don't know if they are -- if they were scared off or what. sal you are watching the eastern span. how is that looking? >> it's a little bit crowded there. we'll start there and take a look at 80 westbound getting into the city. that would be a crowded condition on that deck.
driving into treasure island. not a bad commute. but it definitely is slow as you can see in some spots here. also looking at the commute on the approach to the bay bridge here. it's backed up at least to the macarthur maze. at least a 20-minute delay before you make it onto the span. and here is a look at highway 280 heading south. pretty slow traffic out of daly city heading down to san bruno. at 8:49. back to the desk. let's go to steve. >> hello, steve. >> thank you, sir. we do have a mix of sun and clouds. low clouds are burning off coon -- sooner. it's mild on the coast. we have some breaks for the firefighters here. jay sent me this on twitter, last year, el nino was supposed to happen and it didn't. is the warning this year the same as last?
last year, that's correct correct. the atmosphere and the ocean did not come up. there's no warning. there's discussion on it. it's too soon to say. it does not guarantee we'll get rain. there is a lot going on. i could do a whole show. there does some to be a connection between the atmosphere and the ocean so far this year compared to last year. >> we have a lot of cloud cover. it's associated with the low. the low tapping into this cloud cover coming up from guillermo. this low is like back tracking fast and moving away. it will move back toward us on friday. that one looks stronger than the one we have over today. tropical storm guillermo tracking north to the hawaiian island. by the time you get to thursday, 40, 45 miles an hour. it looks better today than a couple of days ago. 60s on most of the temps
starting to warm up quick. look at the -- there's not much of a difference. san francisco, 64, concord, 63. the water temps are the main reason why the lows in the city and much of the coast have been so warm. 64 at the san francisco buoy. same for monterey. half moon bay, 62. daly city, 62. the lows on the coast are staying in the 60s. they have no problem warming up. you get a south breeze and that helps. the good news, even though it's in the 60s. kelseyville at 64. 611 lower lake. knoxville creek, 63. they were 47. had a lot of lows in the 40s and 50s. humidity is going down. it will be cooler under mostly cloudy skies. the system will spin in a lot of cloud cover. the last few frames you get a good look at this right there. it will be a lot of cloud cover. not much else. but the system on friday has an opportunity for rain. a few isolated showers are possible. mild temps on the coast. cooler inland due to the cloud
cover. if you want to do something smt morning, i -- something in the morning, i would say that's your best bet. 70s and 80s. not much of a difference. for this time year, there's usually a huge spread. that's not the case. quick warmup wednesday and thursday and it will be out of here by friday. the first prescription drug made with a 3-d printer was approved by the fda -- by the fda. it dissolves faster. it's for seizures. the company plans to release more 3-d printed drug in the few -- drugs in the future. rumors are swirling about two couples and and they are long-time -- and they are long-
