7:06 am
very aggressive and every time rescuers tried to get to the woman on foot, the dogs would chase the rescuers away. at least in this instance, we know that the dogs were able to allow the coast guards to make the rescue. the woman has been hoisted back up to safety. she's on her way to the hospital. the coast guard rescuing her just about ten minutes ago. back to you. >> now that she's been rescued, has there been any talk about whether or not technically she was trespassing? might face trouble for what happened this morning or not? >> reporter: you know, we did talk a little bit about that to the public information officer. he said right now, what we're focused on is making sure that people can be rescued safery -- safely, that everything goes smoothly. we'll figure out the other stuff at a later time. >> first things first. thank you. a black eye for san francisco's tourist industry, a visitor was shot. >> that's near one of the most

7:31 am
delta breeze still trying to hang on. not much of a after -- after that. low cloud, sunny and warmer especially away from the coast. warm to hot inland but not bad by the coast. 70s there but 90s through the interior. sal, everything all right. yeah, things are a little bit slow out there for this -- this is what you would call the hour of the commute where the peak of it, anyway. i want to show you something, 280 northbound is slow out of downtown san jose. it stays that way as you drive up into the valley. i can show it to you on the map. not only slow traffic on 28 all the way up into cupertino, but 101 is slow all way up into mountain view and 85 is also very slow. we've had a couple of crashes to report on the stretches.
7:32 am
i would think the traffic would be slow. southbound 880 between 238 and fremont is slow. 580 through livermore is not bad. neither is vasco road in that area. watch out for a little bit of slow traffic but not a lot. let's go to the bay bridge where you can see the traffic is backed up for a 20-minute delay before you make it on the bridge. 7:31. back to the desk. thank you. we're following breaking news. a reporter and photographer at a television station in virginia were shot to death during a live report this morning. pam cook has more on the suspect and how the shootings have devastated people at the station on a number of levels. >> the shooting happened during their morning newscast during a live interview at a local shopping mall at about 6:45 virginia time. we're not showing the disturbing video but they were on live tv at the same and you can hear multiple gunshots as the crew was talking with the

7:34 am
motive and the person responsible. >> that's the general manager at the station. the station says both alison and adam grew up and went to college in virginia. alison parker had been an intern at that station before becoming a reporter there. she was also dating the evening anchor at the station. adam ward, the forecaster was a graduate of virginia tech and was engaged done married to the morning news producer there. it's particularly hard on that whole station in mourning this morning. a competing station in virginia sent us this photo shows colleagues watching the statement, clearly in shock in their newsroom. a roanoke police spokesperson said officers had been posted at other television stations and media outlets as a precaution. there are also reports that local schools are now on lockdown as a precaution as well while deputies search for the gunman but the motive for
7:35 am
the shooting is not clearly known at this point but we are just getting reports that the shooter may be someone who either worked or has been working at that station. virginia's governor saying the arrest may be imminent. so it sounds like they might have a pretty good idea at this time but just for all of us here we've had our news crews attacked in the field along with some of our colleagues in the bay area. and it's just particularly disturbing as people are just out doing their jobs for the public. >> the governor in virginia is now saying that there is a chase underway for the suspect. according to the governor, the arrest of that on-air shooting suspect is imminent. we don't have it confirm. but it seems as it might happen any moment. >> we're following it for you. >> hopefully they catch him now. >> definitely disturbing for all of us in the business. all right. thank you. testimony is set to
