away from the business with what appeared to be a gun. officers haven't said if the man had a gun but it is under investigation. the suspect ran and officers chased him according to the police department. we don't know why shots were fired but the police department said, the suspect was shot at some point during that chase and taken to a hospital. we heard from a lieutenant at a news conference just about 30 minutes ago about the next steps for the officers involved.>> the standard protocol is the officers are placed on a paid administrator believe during the investigative process, they will soon be interviewed regarding the incident. the crime scene technicians are working some physical evidence and they will probably be out here for several hours. >> reporter: right now, we are on the corner of horizon drive in clay bank road, you can see cars are moving freely, even though the speed is still active, not impacting traffic at all, the only thing people should be aware of is the skyline commercial center,
which has a couple of businesses, that area is closed right now as police are investigating and the police department did tell us they will likely be out here for several hours. in fairfield this morning, ktvu fox 2 news. thank you. happening now, teachers in the new haven unified school district are again walking picket lines for the second straight day. alyssa harrington is at the elementary school, and you are saying there is no firm date on when contract talks may start again. good morning. >> reporter: there is a reason why teachers are gathered right here, we are in front of the courtyard, they say that yesterday some of the substitute teachers and other administrators parked in this lot to avoid crossing the picket line because nobody was in this area yesterday. so, today, they are forming a line right in front of the driveway to get in to put some pressure on the district. teachers say that the district is not offering them anything
near what they want or what they say is even acceptable. they are picketing outside of 12 schools this morn. teachers want higher pay and better working conditions. the union is asking for a 10% raise over 2 years, something district officials say they cannot afford. they are offering 1% rates plus a one-time 3% bonus, more small raises are possible but only if the district gets more state funding. everyone is hoping this strike does not last too long, the last day of school is june 2. >> we hope it is not going to go until the end of the year. we are putting some plans in place to see how we are going to handle it towards graduation. >> we never want to leave our students behind. >> reporter: school remains open with substitute teachers and administers filling in, but attendance yesterday was way down. these talks stalled over the

look at 680, it is backed up from pleasant hill, a lot of people are jamming up, even if you're not going on 24, you're going to be slow from pleasant hill to walnut creek because of all of the chain reaction. some people are avoiding 80, really there is no way around it. highway 4 is slow, the whole region is going to be a mess. the south bay commute looks a little bit nor normal, on the peninsula, we haven't had too much slow traffic, and in south city, but that looks a lot more normal. 720, let's bring in steve. thank you, let's get right to it, we will talk about some unseasonably cool temperatures, not only here, but much of california, into nevada and arizona. partly cloudy, a few showers. now it is pouring. the buoy temperatures are

average. this has to go down as the coolest may in years. even some low 40s, which is unheard of. we still have some chain requirements in the mountains, a blustery day out of the northwest. cool temperatures in mendocino and lake county as well. now rate back over to berkeley. and maybe over 224 as well, had a decent sell on fremont, it looks like there's not much left of that now, but still look for mostly cloudy skies, cool temperatures, off and on rain. we will end up in the 60s with a lot of these temperatures, and occasional rain today, and very cool for this time of year. sal, good news or still bad? the commute has been affected by the rain, it is not particularly heavy but it is wet enough to have people slow down. we have an hour and five minute drive right now from the

tight, it is almost impossible for us to pass that on to consumers and not absorb a chunk about ourselves. >> they rely on steel and aluminum, they have seen their suppliers run out of lids recently.>> there is no current tariff that is impacting the cost of your tax handles, but that doesn't mean that one won't change, or that won't change and one won't be coming your way. >> craft beer accounts for the quarter, more than 24% of the multibillion-dollar u.s. beer market. susan is a registered nurse who enjoys like many other americans, and said this is going to hurt craft breweries who don't have giant margins. despite steel and aluminum tariffs being lifted against canada and mexico, this won't change much for craft brewers, they are still concerned as most of the resources come from

go on an ultra processed diet, that is where they are eating things like white bread and canned produce, and condiments that come in a jar that you buy. and, then they had the other group eat whole foods made from scratch, fresh food. and what they had is they offered them as much water as they wanted to drink, also they could have as many snacks in addition to the food. but, they got the same amount from there two different diets. and they found that it made a big difference in what you were eating, and just that two weeks. >> when we talk about ultra processed foods, what are we talking about? what kinds of foods? >> we are talking about things that come in a box or come in a jar or they come in a can, at the grocery store, so it is the stuff on the inside of the grocery store, this is where things got interesting because when they had the folks on the ultra processed diet, keep in
mind, they were only on this diet for two weeks, they ate 508 calories more per day than the folks who were eating the made from scratch meals. they also gained two pounds during that two weeks. and, when they were switched to the made from scratch fresh meals, they lost that two pounds and they lost body fat. it made a big difference in just the two weeks to be eating a lot of these ultra processed foods. >> that is incredible, i have to be honest i am guilty, i have been eating the wrong foods, i have been beat up about it. do we know why the processed food group ate so much more and gained so much more? >> i think it is just really interesting, the researchers think that there might be something about it, maybe it is the texture or something that is in processed food that
causes us to eat it faster and it causes us to crave it more. so they were much more likely to take advantage of the snacks that were available in addition to the processed food. maybe they weren't feeling full. it does take time for our gut to tell our brain, i've had enough to eat, i'm full, let's move on. they kept eating, there was something there about those ultra processed foods that caused them to overeat. you know how it is when you have a bag of chips, it is very hard to stop halfway through the bag. you keep going until it is all gone.>> i promise, i will try to do better. i always learn from you, thank you for joining us on mornings on 2. the dallas cowboys standing by, the running back, ezekiel elliott was caught on camera being detained by police in las vegas, it happened after he pushed a security guard to the ground on sunday as the electric daisy carnival was going on. the police escorted elliott a short distance away and then he
