south bay, and if you go to the north bay, though, it is shifting, right in here, and we actually cleared up for the time being, but tracking it for at least the next hour or two. visibility now half mile reported in santa rosa. so for your saturday, a mostly cloudy skies day. even the possibility of a few scattered showers the farther south you go. san jose south. the best bet of some rain. here is a look at the future cast on this. showing you where the green appears. we got areas over the santa cruz mountains. and san jose and morgan hill. a few hundredths for saturday. and can't rule out the possibility of a few sprinkles in here. it is farther south. this is a southern california event. and giving you a look at the afternoon highs. under partly sunny, mostly cloudy skies for today. low 60s in san francisco. and 64 in oakland. and mid to upper 60s for the east bay. north bay. and 65 in the south bay of san jose. tomorrow will be a dry mild day and then we get into some better weather in the way of rain and sierra snow in the

extended forecast, more on this coming up. authorities are still at the scene of the veterans home in california, in yountville where a gunman shot and killed three hostages before taking his own life. >> this morning, the president tweeting about the shooting, he wrote we are deeply saddened by the tragic situation in yountville and mourn the loss of three incredible women who cared for veterans. >> the victims of the shooting are 48-year-old christine leber, 42-year-old jennifer golick and 29-year-old jennifer gonzalez. >> it happened west of highway 29 at the vin yard. at the veterans home. investigators say a gunman interpreted a going away pard for one of the staff -- party for one of the staff members. the gunman is identified as 36- year-old albert wong, a decorated army vet from sacramento treat ford combat stress. >> we have more from the veterans home this morning, as authorities continue to look for a motive in this deadly attack. kristen? >> reporter: yes, the
8:03 am
investigation continues at the veterans home of california and the questions persist about what led up to this shooting and what set this tragic set of events into motion. now, first, let's talk about those three victims. the three women who worked here, for the program called the pathway home. it is aimed at treating war veterans with ptsd. they were 48-year-old christine leber, the executive director of the pathway home program, 42- year-old dr. jenner golick the program therapist and 29-year- old jennifer goals a psychologist with the san francisco department of veterans affair. the women were attending a going away party and the gunman walked in and made a bee line for the staff party. it is 36-year-old albert wong who reportedly was discharged from the same program a couple of weeks ago. >> he was in the pathway building. these are the people, you know, that have the ptsd that are in this building. so i mean just common sense would say this this was some individual that is suffering
8:04 am
from ptsd. >> investigators are still trying to put together a time line here. the deputy that was called out to the scene shortly after 10:30 when this incident first began, encountered wong briefly. we hear that no words were exchanged, only gunfire, as many as 30 rounds. after that initial flurry of gunfire, there was no further contact. until officers finally breached that room, at about 6 with 6:00 p.m. and discovered the victims all dead as well as the gunman. investigators say the gunman drove here from sacramento in a rental car. that car located and searched here on the campus. but still, those questions persist. investigators are trying to determine how to make sense out of the senseless. so we will let you know as we hear about further information from the investigators here on the scene. we are hoping that we will learn more about this as the day progresses. back to you. >> we see the yellow tape is. there a lot of activity going on, or are they wrapped up, most of the work, from last
8:05 am
night? >> you know, it is hard to tell just how much work is going on. they are actually starting to shrink the perimeter and we have moved in just a little bit closer than we were last night, but this center of activity, we still are not allowed within i would say 50 or so yards of that building. so it is hard to determine exactly how much work is still under way inside that building. >> all right, live for us, thank you. meanwhile, residents of that veterans home say they are saddened and shocked by what happened yesterday. ktvu amber lee talked to some of them, as they returned home after a very difficult day. >> reporter: people who knew the three victims came to the entrance of the yountville veterans home to pay their respects. they lit candles. one for each of the women killed. around 6:30 friday night, before the official announcement came that the standoff had ended, the napa county sheriff's department mobile incident command center followed by a caravan of other
8:06 am
law enforcement vehicles, including tactical units left the veterans home. an hour later, a steady stream of civilian vehicles entered the premises as veterans returned home. one by one, each was stopped by a california highway patrol officer to show identification. >> i am disturbed very much about that. i didn't know that. all day, this has been going on. and we didn't know that they were dead at all. that is a shame. >> one man tells us his wife worked as a nurse at the veterans home. >> sad, sad. i don't have any words. >> are you worried about your wife? >> she is fine. fortunately. >> i was in my room. and saw he was coming down the hall knocking on the door, saying there is a lockdown, there is a shooter on campus. >> this veteran tells me he
8:07 am
left the campus as it was being locked down hoping no one would be hurt or killed. >> i'm really stunned. it is not a happy day. >> nothing like this has ever happened here? >> no. nothing. i have never felt any kind of trepidation living here. >> in yountville, amber lee, ktvu fox 2 news. well ktvu mark ibanez was in napa and reported footage as it unfold and he lives near the facility and took a back road to the veterans center. that's where he took this video. he was near the baseball diamond and the swimming pool on campus. he says he saw a dozen or two dozen law enforcement officers from where he was standing. >> i was in kind of a secluded spot. there were only a couple of law enforcement vehicles there and i just started casually shooting some video of them. and one of the officers said, get behind something. this guy has an automatic weapon. and you know, so that
8:08 am
immediately put me on red alert, because it was so quiet here at the veterans center, that you really didn't get that feeling that it was, you know, some kind of an extreme danger. >> mark i says he did not hear -- mark says he was did not hear gunfire during the time on the scene. a bit of background on the veterans home in yountville. founded in 1884. according to the cal vet facebook page and the web site, it is the largest veterans home in the united states. it houses about 1,000 elderly or disabled veterans. they receive 24 hour nursing care. all of their meals. and a a comprehensive activity program and other amenities. the shooting raises new concern about the security at the veterans home. one worker whose wife, son and daught her to shelter in place in the basement of the building during the standoff said anyone can walk on to campus. >> there is nothing safe at the veterans home. there is no weapons there. we have no armed security.
8:09 am
we have nobody to check the gate, to secure the gate. >> in a statement, the california statewide law enforcement association says it represents security officers at the yountville veterans home and they say they are unarmed, quote, in large part due to the department of veterans affairs unwillingness to confer peace officer authority upon them. to date, administrators have been willing to risk public safety rather than provide trained law enforcement officers with firearms. >> stay tuned. we will have more throughout the morning. florida's governor signing new gun control measures. >> coming up, how the nra reacted and what the group is doing to challenge that legislation. >> and decades before the me too movement there was anita hill. in a moment, more on the woman accusing a supreme court nominee of sexual harassment.

9:04 am
let's first talk about the victims in this case. the three women who worked here, for the program called the pathway home. that is a program aimed at treating war veterans with ptsd and they were as you said earlier 48-year-old christine leber, the executive director of the pathway home program, and 42-year-old dr. jen golick an 29-year-old dr. jennifer gonzalez, a psychologist with the san francisco department of veterans affair. the women were attending a going away party when the gunman walked in and made a bee line toward that staff party. that the gunman now identified as 36-year-old albert wong, he had reportedly been discharged from that program just a couple of weeks ago. >> he is in the pathway building. these are the people, you know, that have the ptsd that are in this building. so i mean just common sense would say that this is some individual that, you know, is suffering from ptsd.
9:05 am
>> and the investigation is still under way. we are starting to put together a time line here that started around 10:20. at around 10:30, a deputy was called to the scene. and then encountered wong briefly and apparently no words were exchanged in that incident. just gunfire. as many as 30 rounds we are hearing after that initial flurry of gunfire, no further contact. and wong reportedly retreated to that room. there was no further contact until officers reached that room, and discovered the dead. now, investigators say the gunman drove here from sacramento, in a rental vehicle. that car was found and searched here on campus, towed away earlier this morning. but there is still a lot of questions. there is still a lot of questions outstanding about what led up to this shooting. what could have been done possibly to prevent it. and what course the investigation is going to take today. and as we showed you, the last half hour, there is still a lot of questions, like just the white car here, with the
9:06 am
evidence markers, on the door, and still no word on exactly whose vehicle that, is or why there are evidence markers or when it is going to be removed here, from the scene. we have been prudent in simply not approaching that vehicle, and leaving it be, as you might expect. but that is just one of the many questions that still remains to be answered here in yountville. clearly a tragic story. a deep loss to the community. these three women who really gave of themselves to try to help others. >> very, very sad situation. we will continue to learn, i'm sure more, throughout the morning and the day. thank you so much. >> thank you. 9:06 your time. residents of that veterans home say they are saddened and shocked by what happened. ktvu amber lee talked to some of them, as they returned home, after a very difficult day. >> reporter: people who knew the three victims came to the entrance of the yountville veterans home to pay their respects. they lit candles. one for each of the women

9:09 am
shooting some video of them. and one of the officers said get behind something, this guy has an automatic weapon. and you know, so that immediately put me on red alert, because it was so quiet here, at the veterans center, that you really didn't get that feeling that it was, you know, some kind of extreme danger. >> mark says he did not hear any gunfire during the time he was on the scene. and a bit of background on that veterans home in yountville. it was founded in 1884. and according to the facebook page, and the web site, it is the largest veterans home here in the united states. the facility houses about a thousand elderly or disabled veterans. they receive 24 hour nursing care. meals. comprehensive activity programs. and some other amenities. now, the shooting raises new concerns about security at the veterans home. one worker whose wife and daughter had to shelter in place in the basement of the building during the standoff told us that anyone can walk on
9:10 am
to campus. >> there is nothing safe. the veterans home. there is no weapons there. we have no armed security. we have nobody to check gate, secure the gates. >> and in a statement, the california statewide law enforcement association says it represents security officers at the yountville veterans home. they say they are unarmed, quote, in large part, due to the department of veterans affairs unwillingness to confer peace officer authority upon them. it adds, to date, the administrators have been willing to risk public safety rather than provide trained law enforcement officers with firearms. stay tuned to ktvu. we will have more on this story throughout the morning. up next, florida's governor signed a new gun control measure. >> coming up, we will tell you how the nra reacted and what the group is doing to challenge those new laws. >> and decades before the me too movement, there was this woman, anita hill. in a moment, tonight's bay area visit from a woman who accused a supreme court nominee of sexual halter.
