5:01 pm
with the gunfire and had a warrant out for his arrest. he was one of the several people injured in this shooting. we're still waiting for official confirmation from the contra costa sheriff's office as far as what exactly happened now out here. about 12:45 as soon as we get more that we will bring it back to you. henry lee ktvu fox 2 news. >> and henry, it still looks like a very active crime scene out there. does it look like it will be carrying on throughout the night? >> reporter: yes, they have been here for several hours since that shooting has happened. we've seen police dogs, sheriff detectives here doing a canvas of the area, talking to neighbors, also investigating the scene, trying to collect evidence. we do see some streets blocked off there. they should be here for quite some time. >> henry lee, thanks, henry. and on ktvu.com we'll have the very latest on this developing story on our web team who is also posting updates on facebook, twitter, and our ktvu mobile app. we've learned that the young woman in the center of the oakland police sex scandal
5:02 pm
has been offered a plea deal in florida for allegedly attacking a security guard while on rehab there. the woman who goes by the name of celeste guap was charged with misdemeanor battery. not clear what the terms of the deal are or whether she will accept it. she is in custody though on $300,000 bail. guap is the key witness against seven current or former bay area law officers who face criminal charges in the sex scandal. alameda county workers say they need her back in california before they could formally file those charges. celeste guap was arrested just three days after arriving in florida for rehab. we learned that the contra costa da's office helped fill out the state compensation funds to fly her out of the state and register for treatment in florida. now, alameda county district attorney says that it was not consulted about that move. uc berkeley police are asking for help tonight in finding a man who sexually assaulted a woman during their greek theater concert. it happened on saturday night around 8:00 at an event called mad decent block party.
5:03 pm
that the 18-year-old victim was standing in line for the restroom when the suspect took her to another location at the theater and assaulted her. police say that the attacker is described as a white man. they say that he has an athletic build with brown hair and blue eyes, wearing a floral short-sleeved shirt and khaki shorts. well, we are almost two hours until kick off now at levi stadium where the 49ers will be hosting the new look l.a. rams. tonight's big season opener, football that is not the only headline tonight. public safety is being called into question as well after colin kaepernick's recent protest during their national anthem. >> we have live team coverage. chief meteorologist bill martin is tracking the weather at levi stadium. jason appelbaum is live with a preview of tonight's game. but first we begin with ann rubin also at levi stadium with a look at security in place for tonight's game. ann? >> reporter: yeah, there should be plenty of it. santa clara police do have
5:04 pm
adequate staffing for tonight. and at least when it comes to security, it should be business as usual. the 49ers are set to take on the rams and outside levi stadium fans are showing up. the question had been would santa clara police spiraling out of control and the fact of the matter is come tonight. we were not going to have a stadium that was protected by our police officers association. then it became very dire and urgent for us to get involved. >> reporter: this all stems from colin kaepernick's protest in recent weeks. first he chose not to stand for the national anthem in a statement about police violence than practicing wearing socks, dressed as pigs. the santa clara police officers said that they were sent a letter expressing their outrage. but a meeting, they would diffuse the situation and enough officers would volunteer to fill the shifts. >> and as they decided to, you know, show that safety was more important than one person's actions or work. >> reporter: and now others are taking action as well as yesterday the seahawks, they would link arm during their
5:05 pm
national anthem. and four dolphins players would take a knee. a kansas city chief's cornerbacks would raise his fist. santa clara police officers have a plan for tonight's game too. it is a tradition that they would start in the middle of last season. >> our officers do line up at the end zone. and also that they will be living together during the national anthem. >> reporter: at least one organization is called planning something special for the game. that they would fly a plane carrying a banner that says kaep inspires courage. >> together it would be an incredibly powerful platform as he and some of his teammates continue to protest. >> reporter: wan old rivalry between the 49ers and l.a. rams being rebooted tonight, fans like the ones in this family say they're ready to put the focus back on football. >> we bought our tickets before this controversy even happened. but we were looking forward to it after a long time. >> reporter: the courage campaign's banner should be flying overhead some time this hour between 5:00 and 6:00.
5:06 pm
the game gets underway at 7:20. julie, frank? >> all right, yeah, expect to play the games too. thank you, ann. the 49er fans are beginning to arrive now at levi stadium anxious for the niner's season opener against the l.a. rams. our jason appelbaum is on the field now with a preview of tonight's game. jason? >> reporter: yeah, this season opener has a special feel. not only is it monday night football, but it's also against the l.a. rams for the first time in 22 years. and so it is pretty special out here as you said they are arriving as we want to tell you something that is pretty cool to see a few minutes ago. and the football field worth of it, that it will be the air force base color guard or honor guard that had be doing it before the game. that they would run nearly 100 yards that it will be pretty impressive to see. in the meantime they would show up on the team buses about 45
5:07 pm
minutes ago you see blaine gabbert who will start at quarterback. we will see how many games that he would need to play well if he stays in there. if he doesn't, they will be calling for kaepernick in shortorders. he doesn't talk, but the fans sure do and they were talking about this renewed rivalry. >> and i was born a ram fan and he was a ram fan back in the 80s down in l.a. and so i was here to show my support for the rams that they will have a lot more of that. >> and the rams, i never liked them ever. >> i know, that's all i have to say. >> and hey, i guess i didn't train them up right folks, out there for the rams country. >> no, it doesn't matter who they are. everyone is a rival. you know what i mean? and it does not matter if they are in that division or not, but they are going down. >> reporter: yeah, you saw the father and son that they had a
5:08 pm
long-time l.a. fan and they grow up to be a niner fan so go figure. but the other story line is anthony davis and the offensive lineman who retired last year. he didn't play football for the 49ers. but then he came back unretired. then on saturday he didn't show up to practice. there is speculation that he decided to retire again and that davis, he was practicing again yesterday. and that he is believed that he will be here in uniform today and that he does not want to play the guard position, which he was slated to start at. and today that he wants to play his tackle position where he has played over his entire 49er career. and so apparently that now he's going to be the back up offensive tackle. but kind of an odd thing, you know, two days before they will need to play their season opener for one of their players to, you know, threaten at least to retire again and then sort of, you know, tell the coach hey, i don't want to play this position before he said it was the position that he would play in, which was guard that will be a tackle. that's it from here. we will send it back to you
5:09 pm
guys. >> kind of an off again and on again situation as we heard what chip kelly said about that to let them play in that other position. >> reporter: yeah, he'll plait other position, but as a backup right now. he's the backup guard if there is an injury to the starter he'll come in or if he is not playing well presumably that he will be back up to tackle and excuse me not play guard because he does not want to play guard. and so it is very odd to have that happen especially before your season opener at two days before the opener a very strange thing indeed. >> yes, in prime time tonight. all right jason, thank you very much. all right, i see a little sunshine down there, but come kickoff time a jacket that might be in order, bill? >> yes, absolutely. it will be a lot more like october and it seems like it will be cold inside. temperatures are well below average and windy all day and we've got unusual weather pattern for the area right now that will keep those temperatures down at the ballpark on the cool side. so levi stadium, which can be a hot ballpark as you know
5:10 pm
especially in the afternoon. that it will be about 62 degrees at game time. and by the time we get into the 4th quarter that you could be wearing the jackets. temperatures down to the mid- 50s and a chilly night out there at the ballpark by the second half. clear skies for the most part and the winds as they would see that about 20 miles an hour that shouldn't be a real factor in the game. when i come back, we will talk about obviously how cool it is in this unusual pattern and when things turn around that they will need to turn around and warm up. we'll see you back here. >> all right, thank you, bill. download the ktvu weather app on the very latest of the weather conditions across the bay area. bill and all the meteorologists, they are posting the updates on facebook and twitter and instagram. so if you need to know go for it. coming up, some new information on the dui crash that would claim the life of the 3-year-old boy. at 5:30 you'll hear from the boy's father speaking out for the very first time. and up next the latest in the race for the white house as donald trump will demand an apology. and also concerns about hillary clinton's health.

5:13 pm
trump needs to release them. you know, and to say yes, why not be transparent? both of them would live with them and their situation that it will be important. >> reporter: they would make a
5:14 pm
stumble, collapsing after making a 9/11 ceremony in new york yesterday. the clinton campaign, they would eventually reveal that they were diagnosed with pneumonia on friday. this afternoon, they tweeted thanks to everyone who has reached out with well wishes. i'm feeling fine and getting better. the clinton campaign says they will release more medical records this week and they admitted to making a mistake. the first presidential debate is scheduled two weeks from today. and this morning it took a physical exam last week in the results that will be released this week. the republican nominee who is 70 years old says that clinton would recover quickly as he did not release those statements on whether that secretary of state would have the strength and the stamina to be president. he did though criticize her for suggesting last week that half of trump supporters would belong in a, "basket of deplorables." >> well my opponent lands you
5:15 pm
as deplorable ander irredeemable. i want a better future for you. >> clinton said she regrets using the word half. she did not back down from saying that the campaign is built on prejudice and paranoia. >> our political analyst brian sullable joins us. we will begin with the health concerns. how big of an issue is this for her campaign? >> i think that when they get through this 24-hour period and the discussion around the actual pneumonia diagnosis that will go away. but the thing that will linger is the idea that this occurred and the clinton campaign did not come out to talk about it
5:16 pm
right away that it will be the thing that will linger a little bit on this issue. >> yes, they say that they plan to release more details about clinton's overall health in the next few days. it all comes after we saw the video from 9/11 yesterday in new york and after they were stumbling, practically falling before getting into the suv. do you think that the clinton camp was forthcoming in how they handled it? >> no frank they were not. there is not a video. we have not heard much about it. but now in fairness, trump has been guilty of this as well through the campaign. you know the bottom line is that the other candidate, and one in clinton that they will be 69 here very shortly. and so that it is a concern to voters. i think that what voters would appreciate coming from both campaigns is extensive transparency. >> and because it will go back to the whole issue of trustworthiness with hillary clinton and the fact that, you know, that video did emerge. i'm sure they did not want that
5:17 pm
to be seen as people were saying that they should come out last week and that they should have that coughing attack last week in ohio and so that the trustworthiness is that going to present a bigger problem for them now after this? >> it is the steady drum beat i was talking about for weeks and months frankly. that every chance that the clinton campaign has had to just come forth immediately that they seem to wait a little bit too long and it becomes a story. but again it is happening on both sides of the campaign. and maybe that message is to treat them as if they could handle the news. >> okay, now on the same day, trump has not been forthcoming. >> yes, it is the same thing that for whatever reason they have decided to hold information back whether it is medical or financial or
5:18 pm
anything else. as you go back, that you think about their previous campaigns. that it will be calling the doctors because they would have melanoma to show them their medical efforts, which is transparency. we are not seeing enough of it as they would agree. >> we have a little bit of breaking news right now and that they are telling cnn that they did not disclose that immediately because she did not know that it would be that big of a deal that it is just coming out here as breaking news. she didn't think that it would be that big of a deal. do you agree? >> well, had the video not emerged where she was stumbling, helped into the suv by a couple of aides. if that had not emerged this would have gone away. frankly that people have medical maladies and things happen. and i think that had she just been forthcoming or her campaign that this would already be old news. but i think that the problem with not coming forward on friday frankly when they knew she had pneumonia is the
5:19 pm
problem. >> all right, brian live for us in the newsroom. thanks for your inciting, brian. >> absolutely, my pressure. in a historic move governor brown has signed a legislation to grant farmworkers the same right to overtime pay as most hourly workers. california will be the first to require agricultural employers to pay their workers for overtime. the legislation chips away at the almost 80-year long practice of applying separate labor rules to farmworkers. for decades the united farmworkers pushed for the change arguing that current labor laws are racist and unfair. opponents warn requiring overtime pay will be detrimental to one of the state's biggest industries. california will begin fazing in the new law beginning in 2019. below average temperatures today really cooled off. unusual patterns. not completely unusual, but definitely not what you would expect in the summer months or your early september months. low pressure is coming down from the north. the clouds dropped in
5:20 pm
temperatures kicking up the winds. daytime highs were in the 60s and the 70s. so it did warm up a little bit. this low pressure center as you'll see the flow around it, right in here you see those spots right there kind of going this way. that is the way it flows. now we are seeing snow out here in the rockies, we've had snow up in montana and idaho. and that very kind of cool weather system for the season. now along the coast right now you'll see bunch of it out there and showers are showing up around susanville. not a lot. the fog tomorrow with the showers picking up right there that you will see it right here. that these showers, they will linger up on the hill and then the clouds will be around here and they will begin to diminish tomorrow with the fog and low clouds and even limited tomorrow as they will kind of migrate on through. but the takeaway, tomorrow will be a cool day. a little warmer today and kind of cool. but santa clara down in that area as we would talk about those ball games, it is not a big factor.
5:21 pm
but the temperatures will be chilly as you'll get into that second and third fourth quarter that you'll notice those cool offs for sure when that sun goes down. 61 right now at walnut creek that is minus four in livermore from where it was yesterday. minus five in napa. the temperatures will be coming down. overnight lows, when i say upper 50s in santa rosa that easily could be an upper 40 or low 50s. it could be an upper 40 in the inland areas away from the cities. you souled tee temperatures get into the 40s tonight. but on tuesday, that will be tomorrow as you can see the showers with the low lingering up on the hill. but for us we're in this pattern to allow that fog most likely to reform tonight and that they will lift it up tomorrow morning where it will be almost like a low cloud event than a fog event to burn off slowly. the sun will come out in yellows or the 70s. that'll be your day tomorrow. the temperatures are in your 70s with a couple of low 80s. the gradual warm up with that kind of story that we will see this week as they will start
5:22 pm
town crease for wednesday, thursday, and friday. so here is the five-day forecast with the temperatures in the upper 80s, taking a bit of a break with a red flag warning because of the winds. not as far or hot. but this will be windy up there. and this week it will be just kind of warming up towards the end of the week. nothing too hot, but it will be okay. >> and it has been kyle for that time of the year. >> yes, this weather will be good back east. that it is just great, good football weather. >> yes, thanks, bill. >> you bet. coming up, a florida mosque goes up in flames. coming up next a look at the surveillance video that could help lead to the arrest. plus the connection to the orlando nightclub shooter. and later knocked down and robbed near campus. coming up at 6:00, the hunt for two men responsible for who berkeley police are looking for. they are offering hiring

5:24 pm
5:25 pm
a mosque where the orlando nightclub shooter prayed went up in flames early this morning. authorities say there was damage to the inside and outside of the florida mosque. they believe the fire was deliberately set and that it may be a hate crime since it happened so close to the anniversary of the 9/11
5:26 pm
attacks. >> the video clearly shows a lone individual either white or hispanic ancestry, driving up on the motorcycle, stopping the motorcycle, walking up to the mosque where shortly after there is a bright flash indicating that a fire did occur. >> and that fire happened a day before an important muslim holiday putting the community on edge. the spokesperson on the council of american-islamic relations says that the mosque has received numerous threats since the massacre. neighbors say they have seen people yelling and gesturing at mosque as they drive by. orlando shooter omar was killed by authorities after opening fire at a gay nightclub back in june. 39 people died and 53 people were injured. a syrian cease fire agreement backed by the united states in russia went into effect today. but it's not clear if the rebel
5:27 pm
groups fighting the syrian government will comply. the cease fire is set to coincide with the muslim holiday of eid. they are hopeful that the holy day will inspire both sides to obey the terms of that agreement. after one week of cease fire the forces of the president will be allowed to fight defensively and can only target the islamic state group, not anti-government rebels. >> and i urge all the parties to support it because it may be the last chance that one has to save a united syria. so far the cease fire appears to be holding. one of the urgent goals including the rebel-held aleppo city. former british prime minister david cameron today announced he's stepping down as a member of britain's parliament. the announcement comes two months after cameron quit as the prime minister after losing
5:28 pm

5:30 pm
the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me.

and chp officers in oakland are looking for a 2016 kia sorento on highway 980 as they
