delays after someone was hit and killed by a train this morning and we have ktvu's christien kafton on the scene. >> reporter: the train is still developing in those delays. we are at 14th street in san francisco south of the caltrain station and you can see it is still on the truck into the site you can also see an ambulance. we understand that this was a fatal incident but someone was recently pulled from the train and placed into the train when it hit a person trespassing on the track. emergency personnel showed up here to the scene and trains were stopped in both directions with 500 passengers onboard. caltrain said there was no
onboard injuries. we did see somebody who was taken off of the train on a stretcher. we are not sure at this time. we also went to the 22nd street station where we saw a number of passengers waiting. the latest is that there could be delays of 30 minutes up to one hour and at this time they are not running either north or south bound. back to you. >> thank you so much christien. we are hearing the suspected linebacker aldon smith may have checked into a rehab facility after he was about to be questioned about a domestic violence incident that happened saturday night. his fiancie recorded it in the apartment building near union square. the women who manages the building tells us that she saw a women saturday night believed to be the fiancie being escorted from the building.
>> a few minutes later they came out with some girl and put her into the police car. that was about it. >> aldon smith left the scene before police arrived but smith called asking them to take him to rehab and they hope he can get help for his substance abuse problems. >> his problems started when he was with the 49ers when he was arrested on suspicion of dui in san jose. in 2014 he was suspended by the nfl and following his third dui arrest in 2015, he was released by the 49ers. he was picked up by the raiders before being suspended by the nfl for a hit and run. in february 2017 he was investigated for alleged domestic assault. aldon smith is in rehab and
for more we are joined by evan rosenblum and if police are looking for aldon smith, do you think that they could arrest him at this facility? >> reporter: i believe that they could. after the incident he contacted his fiancie's father who is a dr. and said i need help. they said the first thing you should do is get to a rehab clinic. he has a problem according to people we have been speaking with. it is something that has been building for a very long time with him. he was involved in a situation where he was intoxicated in a car crash. all of this build up to this incident and instead of going to police he went here to try to clean it up. the fiancie tells us she still
cares for him. i think that is why the family is directing him toward the rehab center. >> you think that is something you could get through the criminal justice system. right now a lot of people see his actions as running away. >> reporter: that is a fair point. i think they want the best for him and they are under the impression he will not get the best so they directed him to this facility that he can get the help that he needs. the fiancie doesn't hate him. she wants to see him ultimately get better. she feels that he has a real medical problem, and that this is the best way to help him. >> is there any obligation that the folks are going to have to help out the authorities who are searching for him at this point? it >> reporter: from what i
understand, he is there but if cops say there is a warrant out for his arrest, they can do that. i am guessing they probably will do that. >> have you found out if there is a warrant out for his arrest? or is he just somebody that the police would like to talk to? >> reporter: he is currently a suspect. i would imagine if they are going to try to arrest him but that is all i know for now. >> you have reported he has had troubles in his personal life. >> grade. the last story we did come he got engaged february 14. before that the mother of his child has gone after him saying that he has not paid child support for a long time. his argument was i haven't been paid in a long time and until
he gets a paycheck he cannot pay child support. which is weird because then he went to one of the most expensive restaurants in the bay area and proposed to his girlfriend. with all of the drinking and the dui, if you go back to his playing days, he got into an altercation with colin kaepernick. the fiancie has told us she believes the drinking is a huge part of all have this problem. >> and left to sort out. >> thank you so much, evan. happening now, parents and students at rooftop elementary school worried about the safety of the children after a threat was made against the school. there's an email alert to parents and teachers saying an adult threatened rooftop elementary school last tuesday. on that day the school was put

them and there is usually two shown every year. to supervisor yeager said the last one guernsey county $6000 and nationwide there are 4000 every year. the question of the day to you is do you believe a ban on gun shows would reduce gun violence? 44% if you say yes. wannabe recess there needs to be a balance. there is no data that proves it and criminals do not play by rules but law-abiding citizens do, and we are the ones paying the price for it. >> asked up on says this is what is wrong with america. when we are faced with a problem we throw a ban on it instead of looking for real solutions. >> thank you for your comments.

this sunday on fox 2 we will have a o.j. simpson special. >> i will tell you a story you have never heard before and it took place in 1994 concerning the wife of my ex-wife nicole brown simpson and her young friend ronald goldman. forget everything you think you know about that night, because i know the facts better than anyone. >> this will contain the previously unseen 2006 interview in which he talks about what could've happened the night his ex-wife and her friends were murdered hosted by soledad o'brien joining us this morning. good morning to you, so let it. >> o.j. simpson is not wrong when he says one of the facts better than anyone but what follows from his 2006 interview is one of the most disturbing and riveting and bizarre
interviews. >> i know the families of the victims worked very hard to stop the book that was to be called "if i did it." >> that was in 2006. this time around when the project came to me that was one of the first questions i asked that how does the family feel and both are supportive of the project. i think what has changed is they feel that hearing o.j. simpson in his own words would be valuable that it was worth it for people to hear his description but only with his relationship of nicole brown simpson but also to have him walk through the day of the double murders. and it is so weird and disturbing that i think they
felt that just hearing from him would have value. >> i think what everyone really wants to hear his incriminating evidence even though you know that he cannot be prosecuted for anything he says but i think that people still want to listen to him say something that says i got you. >> reporter: it is very specific and detailed. that is what is so weird about it. the whole entire thing is bizarre. you never got to hear him talk about this before, but we had a panel around us with the prosecutor and an fbi profiler and that he went on the 2006 interview with us and one of nicole brown simpson's best childhood friends and to watch him watch this interview remember he couldn't get o.j.
simpson on the stand. to watch him was like watching someone who had been punched in the gut. it was i crazy. the fbi profiler interestingly said we think of double jeopardy meaning you cannot be tried again but sometimes you can revisit charges and i don't exactly know the details on that, and certainly it is in the past with people who went to trial and were found not guilty so there is some precedents for that. >> soledad, when we finish watching this special, how satisfied will i be with the conclusion? am i going to have a better understanding about what happened or am i going to be left hanging? >> i think you will have a very good understanding of what
happened. i have watched every single thing and i think you are going to be stunned at just how strange this is. i watched it five times. it is just bizarre and one of the craziest interviews that i have ever seen. i think you will find it completely shocking. this is very shocking. >> thank you for joining us this morning, soledad o'brien. you can all watch "o.j. simpson: the lost confession" this sunday right here on ktvu fox 2 . video from the 1906 earthquake in san francisco was recently discovered at a flea market. the nine minute real shows the two weeks after the earthquake hit. it was produced by a studio.

about having more for the fans, i think the answer is absolutely. looking at what they did last year, they were really fun to watch with 24 homers in 50 games. the a's were a wedding ballclub in september so if you can get off to a hot start it will build an interest and i think that there is optimism in the team should be better than it was a year ago. >> talking about the giants, how are they looking this year? they have added andrew mccutchen this year. are they getting a lot of playing time? >> reporter: they were methodical during the off- season with many wondering when they will fill these holes. finally they add him to be at centerfield and i think that they did really well, to be
honest. one time superstar players two years ago were among the best in baseball and are still very good. i think they upgraded defensively and offensively and for the giants for me it comes back to will be pitching come back to where it was at and if johnny cueto bounces back do what he has been in the past and then with the rotation be solid enough that you can go out and give them a chance to win every day. the giants will be absolutely better than last year. but i am pretty optimistic. >> any talk of a possible location for the a's ? >> reporter: all talking about the field. full disclosure, this is my first day at a's camp, but i
