traffic has appeared on 880 from san leandro up to oakland as it normally does. what's gotten better is contra costa county, highway 4 is a little bit slow still but 680 looks good from the benicia bridge. we are beginning our 8:00 hour developing news from milpitas where early this morning there was an officer- involved shooting. it's under investigation. investigators say a suspect was shot and wounded. ktvu's janine de la vega, you have been there all morning. you have new developments. >> reporter: well, in the last 30 minutes, dave, they opened up both directions of calaveras boulevard. they were previously closed here. the one thing that is still shut down there where you see all the police cars is the northbound on-ramp to 680 here. that's still closed. it looks like they have also brought in heavy equipment to clear away some brush. we are not sure if that's because there is still some evidence over there that they need to look for but they have
been very meticulous in their investigation. it was a very large crime scene that stretched all the way across calaveras boulevard here to this motel where they just took down some crime tape. now, this shooting happened just before 1:00 this morning, an officer made a traffic stop on a cadillac and pulled into the parking lot of the executive inn. police say the officer and the suspect both exited their cars shortly after the shooting occurred. we don't know if the suspect had a weapon or what made the officer shoot. we are told the suspect ran across calaveras to the northbound 680 on-ramp, police caught up with him in the bushes there. motel guests say they heard two to three gunshots, some ran to the balcony and saw the suspect bleeding. >> he had a white shirt on and in that area, it's kind of wooded so the white stands out. you can see the area in red, you know and a few people that were standing there was like, oh, look, he's slumped over.
they shot him. >> reporter: that suspect was taken to the hospital where he is now being treated. his condition is unknown. police tell us he is a 27-year- old latino man from san jose, he has three outstanding no bail warrants out for his arrest. the officer involved was not injured. police are questioning him to figure out how this all unraveled. police say they may release some more details later today. as far as that entrance to northbound 680 from calaveras, we are being told that it may open by 9:00 a.m. again, that could change because we have been getting all sorts of time estimates from police throughout the morning. but right now they are saying possibly by 9:00. back to you. >> janine de la vega, thank you. time now 8:05. the chp investigating a deadly overnight crash in san ramon. it happened shortly before midnight on interstate 680 near bollinger canyon road. the chp says the driver of a

launch with a breakfast kicked off with trump. john kasich scheduled to speak at a banquet dinner tonight. ted cruz scheduled to headline tomorrow's luncheon and carly fiorina set to deliver the keynote speech tomorrow night. protesters have pledged to come out in force. surrounding agencies are making sure this event safe for convention goers and protesters. police tell me they are expecting anywhere from 500 to 3000 protesters. they say currently their plan is flexible, they are even considering closing down old bayshore highway where the hyatt is located if they need to. convention goers, though, they are focused on the political battlefield and say the state's 172 delegates would be pivotal in deciding the eventual republican nominee. >> depending on what happens in indiana and the other states that are remaining, this election could be decided in california. >> reporter: burlingame police say they do have a plan in
place to handle the expected protesters. they say that that plan includes a plane flying overhead to give them perspective on the crowd. they also say they are prepared to shut down old bayshore highway if necessary to accommodate the protesters and ensure the safety of everyone. the chief stressing to me that he wants this to be a safe event for convention goers and for protesters alike. again, we are expecting trump to start the luncheon at about noon today. we are hearing the first protesters again really set to show up at 9:00 but we are already starting to see a handful of protesters out here already. the chief of police again telling me that he wants to see this safe for everyone. >> christien, we will bring you back for the nines to see how that situation changes, thank you. hillary clinton supporters opened up an oakland office yesterday near lake merritt. bernie sanders will formally open a campaign office in oakland tomorrow. two sons arrested for the murder of their parents in san jose. coming up at 8:30, what the

commute. now filling in for steve, hello, rosemary. >> hello. friday shaping up nicely weatherwise as well. outside early this morning we had partly sunny skies to start the day and now we are partly cloudy and we will be partly cloudy for the afternoon. temperatures are rebounding as well. widespread 50s at this hour, low 50s in santa rosa, upper 50s san francisco, oakland checking in at 56 degrees, livermore and san jose in the low 50s at this time. the winds could be a bit of an issue as we get into your bay area weekend. let's start out with a view of the water vapor loop, helps to sort of explain the circulation going on in the atmosphere. so here's a look at the ridge that remains over the pacific, you can see the clouds pouring in right over the ridge. this is going to strengthen a little bit as we get into the weekend, going to help to drive up our temperatures but what also is happening, a little bit harder to detect right in here, a system that will be dropping down between california and nevada and these inside sliders some of us will change our wind so as we get into the afternoon today, remain with the west northwesterly breeze is going to be breezy at times.
10 to 15 miles per hour, even 20 reported in areas like redwood city, santa rosa to 17, a bit breezy for your friday afternoon with mild temperatures. by saturday, though, take a look at what begins to happen. do you see this arrow here? north-northeast, and again we are looking at that warmup coming our way saturday, sunday looks to be even the warmest day. here's a look at the afternoon highs expected for today, we have 68 degrees in san francisco, we have 69 expected in hayward, 77 in concord, mid- 70s in morgan hill, upper 70s in antioch, upper 70s to the north bay of santa rosa. i put in two graphics there. this will give us a tour, take a look at a few more numbers here. upper 60s expected in sausalito for the afternoon today. close to the coast, 65 for stinson beach. 75 for pleasanton, 69 for hayward so upper 60s at the shore, mid to upper 70s for our inland communities. down to the south bay 77 for gilroy, 74 in santa cruz this afternoon, 71 expected cupertino, your peninsula shows
you upper 60s to low 70s from san bruno into san mateo, 70 degrees for palo alto, 68 for san francisco this afternoon, 65 half moon bay. headed to tahoe, that same system that will bring us the breezy weather will bring the possibility of morning showers on saturday and a chance for thunderstorms on sunday with cool temperatures there. low to mid 50s if the forecast. meanwhile here at home we are going to be warming it up, low 70s at the coast, upper 70s to low 80s around the bay, low to mid-80s for our inland communities. the only problem may be that breeze that comes and goes at times. dave. >> thank you. time is 8:47. new this morning, we just got off the phone with a representative from pg&e, they informed us the man who was seen walking around the marina district neighborhood in san francisco dressed like a pg&e employee actually is a contractor with the company and is not an imposture. the utility confirmed they had been conducting routine gas meter inspections throughout
san francisco and they will continue to do so for the next week. the inspectors will be on foot, they will be wearing a hardhat, safety vest and they will carry a photo i.d. they will ask for access to residents' gas meters if the employee can't get to them on their own. the company says if you're not sure about whether or not a person is a pg&e employee, this is what you can do. ask for their i.d. card and if you still don't feel safe, you can call the company's customer service line, that number is 1-800-743- 5000. they can confirm if they have employees working in your neighborhood. now, we are going to post this information and that phone number on our website shortly at ktvu.com. time is 8:48. well, vice president joe biden is at the vatican, it's for an historic event with the pope. pope francis is addressing a conference on stem cell research bringing together doctors, patients, politicians and religious leaders talking

believed to be his vehicle was found with flames coming out of the gas tank. well, station employees immediately were evacuated and the police were called in. >> several of us were on the other side of the street. we could see the guy pacing back and forth, sitting there just standing like just relaxed and he had on that suit but his jacket was open and he had a red vest, he had a red vest on and you could see -- he was holding a flash drive and something he could probably set a bomb off. >> he was later shot when he refused orders to take his hands out of his pocket. it was a terrifying ride for a 6-year-old boy in texas. his seat belt broke on a roller coaster. >> here we go.
