roadways? >> lighter as far as volume. highway 4 is showing slowdowns. closer to the maze, an easy drive. this is unexpected, we have been following this all morning southbound 680. dublin boulevard off ramp is still closed because of police activity. i'm going to hand it off to brent for the details on that. >> thank you. we are following a developing story out of dublin. a man is dead after being shot by a dublin police sergeant. that sergeant is in the hospital. it happened at amador plaza road and dublin boulevard. christie smith joins us live with the latest. >> reporter: good morning to you. we have been watching this all morning. they are being very thorough collecting evidence in the shooting. it happened across the street at the dealership. the coroner isn't there yet. deputies heard from the sergeant
6:02 am
involved in this. she thought this man was trying to kill her by hitting her head into the cement. again, this is near the car dealership. she fired at him. this started at 1:30 in the morning when the sergeant noticed a man walking near the stores and the correspond lot. she thought it seemed odd. she phoned in and tried to contact the man about what he was doing out here. she says he attacked her and she didn't know why. sergeant j.d. nelson with the sheriff's department is saying the dublin police department had run ins with this man before. >> he's familiar to the dublin police. he's been arrested on numerous occasions. he's had violence in his past and been arrested for fighting and those kinds of things. >> reporter: of course she fired at him over there. the sergeant was taken to eden medical center with head injuries.
6:03 am
she is talking this morning and expected to be okay. we are told she has at least 20 years experience, certainly knows what she's doing. i also got an update from the sergeant out here who says you'll want to avoid this area because this investigation is going to take quite some time. all the streets around here are closed at this hour. reporting live in dublin, christie smith, today in the bay. >> thanks for the update. impersonators have a high-tech way to get you to think they are the real deal. it's a smartphone app that looks like the flashing red and blue lights of police cars. they arrested a man accused of using an app on two people in a car. the suspect is a 23-year-old. he thought they were suspicious then realized they didn't pose a threat. he was trying to keep his neighborhood safe. >> i immediately left the area, i left, you know, went back to
6:04 am
my house and tried to go over to the neighbor's house, knock on their door. they wouldn't answer the door even though they saw me there to apologize and say listen, i apologize if i scared you guys. >> he says he did use flashing lights. the colors he used were red and brown. the police say it doesn't matter. any form of police impersonation is a crime. this morning, we are following a strange investigation in santa cruz. police made a gruesome discovery inside an apartment complex. now, a man in his 60s are in custody. he was living with a woman in her 30s for several days. marla tellez has the bizarre details. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is a very weird and as you said, gruesome story. it actually unfolded here at the shore view apartments. it's a nice apartment complex on east cliff drive with a great
6:05 am
view. we are feet away from the santa cruz board walk. the man at the center of this investigation, 63-year-old john, we are learning lived upstairs in apartment number 7. it's the third door on the top. he was arrested tuesday night after police got a call of suspicious activity and a strong, horrible smell coming from the apartment. neighbors were complaining of the strong stench for days. police ended up finding the body of a woman in her 30s inside. police say he had been living with this decomposing body in his apartment for more than a week and he never reported it. neighbors say all though the woman was some 30 years younger than him, the two were involved in some sort of relationship. also interesting, he has a long criminal history. he's been on parole for almost two years since may 2009 after serving time for second degree burglary. he was arrested most recently
6:06 am
less than two weeks ago for driving with a suspended license. so far, to be clear, he's just a person of interest in this case pending the autopsy results which will explain how this woman died. he could end up facing murder charges in this woman's death. police are not releasing the name of this woman. they do say they do know her identity. john is currently held at the santa cruz county jail. he cannot be released on bail at this point. laura. interesting story. thank you so much. baseball is investigating an atlanta braves pitching coach. a fan claims a coach verbally attacked him and his family at at&t park with remarks and obscene gestures. he says the braves coach launched into an antigay tirade during batting practice. he asked the coach to watch his

the company is releasing a new iphone today. bob redell is in palo alto this morning. good morning, bob. >> reporter: the one they are releasing today looks like this one here except it's white. the white iphone four finally going on sale today. delayed several months. initially, it was supposed to come out july last year. apple didn't want to disrupt production of the black with a white iphone. the material is slightly different. there's production problems trying to figure out how to get it not to interfere. they wanted to make sure there was uv protection. it sounds hokey, but it's the truth. should you get the white iphone today or wait for the iphone five that's rumored to come out
6:16 am
for the christmas holiday season? if you can, it may be worth the wait based on the rumors we are hearing. the iphone five according to speculation, parts orders say there would be a faster processor which would allow for you to have more powerful applications. the home button you see now is an actual button. rumors it would be a virtual button. this part would be virtual as you have the button removed. the bezel, the side around the screen are saying there's a possibility of hot buttones as well. the e-mail or camera buttton on the side. if you take a profile of the iphone five, again, rumor has it it would be a tear-drop shape. it would start thick at the top and taper thinner as you hit the bottom.
6:17 am
again, they are rumors. nothing can be confirmed or denied. apple isn't saying peep about this. if this were true, if the rumors were true, it is clearly a complete redesign of the current iphone four that is out there. laura. >> i liked your idea for the app where it would be a hot plate to warm things up. >> reporter: you like that? or a stun gun here. >> i didn't like that one. >> thanks bob. checking the forecast. folks are seeing the gray start to the day. overall, not too bad. christina has the details. >> not too bad. we have the high clouds overhead in the coastal regions. inland, mostly clear. we are all going to see the clouds. the general pattern is mostly sunny. here is what we are expecting. a low pressure system sitting to the north is going to continue to push inland. as it does, we see a little disturbance break here. it's going to produce windy
6:18 am
conditions through the afternoon. not too bad. the temperatures climb into the 70s give or take a degree or two. very similar to where the temperatures are expected to end up. we are in the 50s. it's mild out there. you don't need a jacket in sunnyvale. 55 degrees. 54 degrees in gilroy turning to the 60s by noon. 63 in san jose. 55 degrees in the city. here is what we are expecting later on today. a gorgeous day. a few passing clouds throughout the day today. the cloudy skies we have overhead now, it's as much as we are going to see. the clouds will clear as we head throughout the day. only the high cirrus clouds are able to make it through the ridge of high pressure. here is what to expect for the remainder of the week. the 80s are back. 80 on monday. 81 on tuesday and 83 degrees on wednesday. now, you probably have heard about this if you haven't already, tornado outbreak

6:26 am
ready for what? >> to fulfill the agreement. >> 83 pounds. >> what agreement. >> let's get blood work. >> you agreed. >> what are you talking ability? >> when you downloaded the last itunes you clicked on agree. >> apple posted an explanation to the website denying reports apple tracks you. now, it does keep a written record on your phone about the wi-fi networks you passed by. we have known that for a long time. apple admits the records are too big. the information is kept too long and says it will fix that problem with an update. so, largely, this is over. apple finally addressed this. they weren't quick about it. in the meantime, bob pointed out the white iphone on the same day. is it a case where apple says of
6:27 am
course we don't track anything. all the companies we tract with do but we don't. >> it's more we don't track you, we track the things that you pass by. honestly, it's a fine distinction. steve jobs says this is a matter of educating the consumer to understand why they do it and how it works. they admit, we track or this device records a bit too long. >> we'll see how that plays out. >> i bet other devices do as well. >> watching your end now. it is 6:27 now. still to come, a congresswoman tells the people of san bruno, pg&e should not be trusted. a live report from a man who lived in a studio apartment with a woman who was dead for more than a week. we look at that story. a police sergeant is recovering. a suspect is dead after shooting in dublin overnight. a live report, coming up.

6:34 am
inside his upstairs apartment. police say the woman is in her 30s and he had been living with the dead body for more than a week. he never reported it. neighbors say all though the woman was more than 30 years younger than him, the two were involved in a relationship, but argued quite a bit. >> she has a voice that just was louder than a man's voice. i had three run-ins with her because of that. she would go out on the deck and laugh and i would go up there she would -- i would smell liquor on her breath. >> reporter: also interesting, he has a long criminal history. he's been on parole for almost two years after serving time in prison for second degree burglary. the police arrested him five times since 2007. most recently less than two weeks ago for driving with a
6:35 am
suspended license. he's a person of interest in the case pending the autopsy reports will explain how the woman died. he could be charged for murder in her death. currently, laura, he's being held in the santa cruz county jail. >> thank you for the update. meantime, a newark man accused of stabbing a woman is under arrest. they arrested him for the killing of a 25-year-old woman in his home on cherry street. officers say they responded to reports of an assault at his home on wednesday morning and found monroe outside with blood on his hands and clothes. the woman was inside dead. her name has not been released. monroe knew the victim but have not released a possible motive. we are following a story out of dublin. a man is dead after being shot by a dublin police officer. the police officer is in the
6:36 am
hospital with major injuries. today in the bay's christie smith has been following that. >> reporter: they are taking pictures and gathering evidence. they may never know why he came after the police sergeant on patrol. from the hospital, she's starting to tell her story about what happened to investigators. she says the confrontation happened near the parking lot. this man started hitting her head against the cement and she thought he was trying to kill her. this started at 1:30 in the morning when she noticed what she considered a suspicious man walking around a car lot around amador plaza road. she radioed in she was going to make contact. she got out of her patrol car and that's when a sheriff's
6:37 am
spokesman says he attacked her. the suspect started hitting her in the head and it went all the way to the car dealership. she pulled out a service weapon and shot and fired and killed the suspect. >> reporter: nelson tells us dublin police know this man well. he's been arrested before for a number of things including fighting. he's believed to be a homeless man. the sergeant is taken to eden medical center with head injuries. she's talking and seems to be okay. she's a 20-year veteran of the force. slifr's investigators out here taking 360 degree pictures of everything going on. reminding everyone coming through the area to avoid it. the roads are going to be closed for some time. reporting live in dublin, christie smith, today in the bay. >> thank you for the update. bay area congresswoman is

giving the people of san bruno her support. she hosted a town hall. 100 people came to get the latest information on rebuilding the neighborhood devastated by september's explosion. she says she thinks pg&e put money in front of safety and they should not be trusted. >> there are 34 miles of pipeline in the pg&e system that was identified as seamless that turns out to be seen. if that's pg&e's recordkeeping and flawed recordkeeping, what is to say that isn't the kind of recordkeeping going on throughout california and across the country? >> state officials admit it could take five years to finish the inspections on more than 700 miles of transmission pipes that run under homes and businesses throughout california. but they say work is being done right now to make gas pipelines safer. a lot of bay area cities are
6:39 am
outsourcing to save money. it means many police officers are cashing in, making big money, and it's perfectly legal. they report it's happening in half-moon bay and san carlos which outsourced the money. that means officers can retire from police positions, get new jobs with the sheriff, which means they collect their pensions at the same time they get a new salary. it's called double dipping and straining the pension system. >> it's 6:39 now. let's get a check of the forecast today. the temperatures are going to continue to climb. you might be able to take a double dip in a swimming pool. we have a trough on the way. let me show you what's happening. over the bay area, you can see where it's located now, to the
6:40 am

6:41 am
roadways. >> getting more corrorowded i g. the average 46 miles per hour. a 19 minute drive. it's fine past elcharro. southbound 680 and dublin boulevard, the off ramp is still closed because of the police activity south of dublin boulevard. that's closed. it's affecting the onramp as well. if you want to get on to the area, if you are heading over to the southbound 680 west of the area, go ahead and use san ramon road on to 580 and take it east. it will connect you back to the area. the connector is fine. the back up quick to build to grand avenue. it's holding steady. back to you. >> thank you very much. we are excited for the wedding of the century, less than 24 hours away. preparation for the royal i dos

good morning to you. taking a live look outside. this is from dublin as police continue to investigate an officer involved shooting this morning. the sergeant is in the hospital after shooting and killing a man. we are keeping tabs on the investigation. 6:46 now. meantime, the death toll is up to nearly 200 people dead in morning. crews are canvassing some of the hardest hit areas. jeff morrow joins us live in pleasant grove, alabama. i have seen this video and some of the twisters are amazing.
6:47 am
>> reporter: oh, it was incredible to be here yesterday. the atmosphere very volatile and i actually got a chance to see the big tornado as it tore across the north side of the city of birmingham. just an amazing sight to see something that large. it was a huge black mass that was just tearing things up. you can see the power flashes and of course the damage that it left behind. again, the death toll has risen over 200 people. that would make it the second deadliest tornado outbreak in alabama history. we may be on the way to the deadliest. i don't think that number is going to stop there. let's come back here live. i want to show you what we are looking at here in the pleasant grove area. behind me, you can see the debris. a lot of this is remnants of houses further up the hill. they have blown across the street and pushed into the trees. you can see a boat to the
6:48 am
lefthand side. as we pan down, you can see the green truck in the foreground. that is one of the one that is stood up the hill 50 yards away and got rolled down. as we go further up, you can see the first responders and rescue people going house-to-house for much of the morning to make sure people are out of the houses and nobody is trapped or left behind. i think most of the work has been done now. it's a matter of cleaning up and accounting for everybody. there's a scene of utter devastation across much of northern alabama. the storm that we dealt with here, the tornado that came through here started along the mississippi-alabama border, roared through tuscaloosa and didn't stop until north georgia. it's one of 150 reports of tornadoes yesterday. an incredible, incredible day. definitely one for the record books.
6:49 am
