5:03 am
the time the gunshots rang out. the cousin i spoke to is also a rapper. hi tells me his promotions van was at the location when the bullets were flying. he does not believe he was a target, even though the van was hit by several targets. he was in the richmond recording studio at the time but he says he's glad his promotions van was there because it was used to transport several of the injured to the hospital. >> i'm grateful my van was there to help people get to the hospital. you never know how long it would take for the ambulance to get there. it's a good thing they did think to get them directly to the hospital. >> police have not made any arrests. there were roughly 50 bullet casings at the scene. he say has the shootings here in
5:04 am
oakland have become senseless when now a 1-year-old is here behind me fighting for his life. we're live in oakland. i'm damien trujillo. today in the bay. >> senseless. thank you, damien. it is 5:03. new word of more black friday violence. a south bay shopper was armed with a hammer. police say a woman smacked him on the head with the hammer at the macy's. the man did not know the woman and did not pro voc her. after being hit in the head with a hammer he was rushed to the hospital and is expected to survive. the woman who has not been identified was arrested. in san francisco three young boys were robbed in line while waiting for a black friday sale. the 14 and 15-year-old boys tell police they were near the intersection when sixte teens approached them and asked to buy weed.
5:05 am

5:06 am
find themselves with trees for the city. they will consider new rules to clarify who is responsible for maintaining trees. the new rules focus on homeowners whose property is next to street trees. they'll also cover permit requirements. the body of a killer whale washing ashore leaving scientists trying to figure out how he died. the body of an 18-foot killer whale washed up just north at the seashore. they say it's very rare to see an or cassette up on shore in northern california. and there are signs the killer whale did suffer some sort of trauma, but to this point the case of death and cause of death is still being investigated. well, this is the time of year when people just seem to, you know, gain the few extra pounds. and a new study is showing a growing number of americans are raising the number of what their
5:07 am
ideal weight should be to reflect the increase. good morning. i'm still thinking about the thanksgiving dinner and two pieces of pie. basically this is what the survey found. it asked americans how much they weigh. the average woman weighs 160 pounds. this is what is so startling. both numbers are up 20 pounds compared to the self reported weights in 1990. so not only are we getting chubbier, but we're readjusting our vision of what our ideal weight is as well. women on average said p 138 pounds up from 129 in 1991. and men on average said their adeal weight should be 196. that's also up from 180. and much of the steady weight
5:08 am
gain that cops with age appears to be the result of weight gain between the thanksgiving holiday and new year's day. we're in the season right now. one the four pounds. and then we start off the new year with a higher life. so basically the survey is saying that most americans are in denial despite a cig capital weight increase over the last ten years. marianne favro, "today in the bay." >> tough to get out there and run this morning because it's a little foggy. can't see where you're going. >> yeah. it's actually dangerous to get out on a bike or even walking out there this morning. if you are going to be doing so, make sure you dress in light colors. it is really thick out there. the fog is so thick you won't recognize your familiar surroundings. give yourself plenty of time.

5:30 am
tuesday forecast. >> we have thick fog out there. and not just fog that we're watching for you. we have a wind storm shaping up for you. this morning we want you to get to work safely. city alert. give yourself plenty of the time to reach your destination. we find out what that fog is doing to your drive with mike inouye. >> allow extra time because you have to lower your speeds. also it's a washout as far as the caldecott goes. thath closed until further notice. and tough over the bridges. basically all the bridges have fog advisories. >> slow it down out there. thanks, mike. well, we start things off with a "today in the bay" exclusive this morning. a 1-year-old baby right now in critical condition after he and others were shot in west
5:31 am
oakland. we had a chance to talk with the baby's cousin. damien trujillo is in oakland. we're hearing the shooting happened during the filming of a music video, correct? >> yeah, and that child was there with his mother who is a local rapper. the 1-year-old is here fighting for his life. i spoke to his cousin, who is also a rapper. he said the boy was shot in the head and he has swelling of the brain right now. police say dozens of bullets were flying in the 700 block of willow tree and west oakland. he is a rapper. he told me his cousin, the boy's father is also a rapper and was shoot the music video when the gut shots rang out striking him. his promotions van was also at the filming of the video and dun believe he was a target even though his van was also hit with bullets. he tells me he was in the richmond recording studio and can't understand how someone can
5:32 am
senselessly fire his gun and strike a small child. >> it's like, this is getting crazy. for it to go down to where babies are starting to get hurt. it's not worth it. it's really, really not worth it. >> police are still looking for the suspects. there are reports there were roughly four dozen bullet casings left there at the scene. again the 1-year-old is here at the children's hospital behind me shot in the head. fighting for his life. we're live in oakland. i'm damien trujillo, today in the bay. >> so heart wrenching. thank you for the update. 5:32 now. san leandro police will reveal new information about a black friday shooting in a wal-mart parking lot. policery saying only that officers will share critical information about the case. the man and his family were
5:33 am
walking to the car when several suspects approached them demanding their newly purchased mds. when the man refused the suspects shot him. some of the victims managed to wrestle the suspects down to the ground until police arrived. it is 5:32 now. a shooting in a quiet south san jose neighborhood sent one man to the hospital this morning. police say it happened just before midnight on apple blossom drive. officers found a man who was shot several times. they say, however, his injuries do not appear to be life threatening. the man is now in the hospital. police are not naming any suspects at this point. >> the bay area's most anticipated ipo is said to be on his way. business and tech reporter scott mcgrew tells us when facebook will go public. it will be a big one. >> it's going to be huge. we know it was coming. between april and june of next year. this accord thog the "wall street journal" which says the planned filing would raise $10 billion and give the company an
5:34 am
overall worth of $100 billion. facebook would be selling just a small part of itself, and it would give facebook twice the value of hewlett-packard. it could also give mark zuckerberg a value of $25 billion. that's best guesstimate. zuckerberg probably owns a quarter of the company outright. we're not sure. 100 billion divided into quarters. you remember the movie "the social network kwlts. the founder and the plot there. well, he would be assuming he hasn't sold many shares and assuming they haven't diluted it too much, 5 billion. so at the end of the movie he feels he's been treated unjustly by them. >> edward. edward! all right. it will be interesting to watch. all right. thank you very much. >> wow, caltran is asking prosecutors to reconsider and file charges against a former employee fired over falsifying
5:35 am
data. prosecutors decided not to file the criminal charges. they are also working on the bridge despite the false data. caltran says the products are structurally sound. there's a new procedure in place to keep this from happening again. not feeling too bad about it. marianne favro is live in san jose with a look at some of the numbers for us. good morning. good morning to you, laura. if you want to get closer to your i deal weight, it's simple. just adjust your concept of what your i dool weight is. then you don't have to go to the gym. a new survey shows that's what most americans are doing. they're asking people to name their adeal weight. and they found that men picked
5:36 am
the number 15 pounds over their ideal weight. women picked a number 22 pounds over their ideal weight. this is all from a new gallup poll survey. it shows more and more americans are in denial about what is a healthy weight. the average man is 20 pounds heavier than the average man 20 years ago. one of the reasons most likely that people are doing this is if they adjust their ideal weight, then they don't have to lose so much weight. and it's not as daunting as getting in there doing the work. but kudos to the people at 24-hour fitness. they are working hard this morning. i can't believe how many people are pouring in here. it's not even the post season in january. reporting live in san jose, back to you. go in and make sure the tvs are on kwtd today in the bay."
5:37 am
thanks. >> time to check back in with christina loren. what is happening outside? >> it is so foggy out there. good morning to you. make sure you give yourself lots of time. i know i sound like a broken record saying that. once you walk out the front door, you may not see the fog when you hit the highway. you likely lchlt just about as bad as it was yesterday. not quite as widespread. this morning you have to slow down across the board. we'ring deep pockets of fog right now. in oakland, san mateo on san francisco. and then throughout the day we lose the fog by 11:00 a.m. and then we'll see a nice second half of your day. gradual clearing. not full-on sunshine. but at least partly cloudy skies. a mix of sun and clouds throughout 12:00 through 5:00 p.m. 50 in san francisco. 49 in oakland right now. you're at 45. good morning at san jose. high pressure setting up right over us. as we head through tomorrow, it's not only going to keep the coastline a little more on the clear side, it's going to drive
5:38 am
some very, very gusty winds to the higher elevations. even here on the valley floor we'll see pretty strong winds as we head through wednesday into early thursday. a high wind watch has been issued for the north bay mountain to the east bay hills. but a mostly clear coastline for the next couple of days. we'll have frequent gusts of 20 to miles per hour miles per hour. we really want you to keep this in mind. downed power lines, pg&e is on board. they know the weather is coming. >> good morning, christina. we take you to this the foggy drive out there. the issue report with all tunnels back home. westbound 24 at broadway. a minor accident reported there. it sounds like a car went off the shoulder there.
5:39 am
it's going to be tough to see. expect slower conditions because of the fog. and we're looking at antioch with the highway 4 slowdown. the time is 5:39. and he speaks for the very first time since being hospitalized. east palo alto city leaders set to tackle a new report that says no stop sign is needed. and what police are saying about the woman who pepper sprayed shoppers during a black friday sale in southern california.
5:40 am
i joined the navy when i was nineteen. i was a commissioned officer at twenty-three. i was an avionics... tactical telecommunications... squad leader. i think the hardest transition as you get further into the military is... you know it's going to end one day. chase hired me to be a personal banker. i'm a business analyst... manager. i'm very proud to work for chase. when you hire a veteran, you get... great leadership... decisiveness... focus. chase knows, when you hire a veteran, you're hiring america's best. chase is proud to help 100,000 veterans find jobs at home.
5:41 am
welcome back, everyone. it is 9:00 right now. a new mammogram recommendation.
5:42 am
but it directly contradicts recommendations from the federal government. tracie potts is live in washington with what is going on with this. good morning, tracie. >> hey, jon. good morning, everyone. here's the bottom line. just this year alone in california 20,000 women are be diagnosed with breast cancer. how do you prevent the diagnoses? through mammograms. when do you get the mammograms? that's where the controversy lies. another recommendation from the society of north america. they're saying that all women regardless of your family history, if you've never had anyone in your family with breast cancer, you should be getting a mammogram every year starting in your 40s. that is completely the opposite of what the u.s. preventive services task force said just two years ago when they shook up the medical community saying that women don't need to start those mammograms until 50 and then have them every other year unless there's a family history
5:43 am
or genetic issue to provide for them earlier and more often. so now what are women to do? we have different remss from different organizations. the radiologist national cancer institute also saying it's good to start in the 40s. a lot of doctors are as well. you do need to consult with your doctor. and a lot of women will be guided by what their insurance will pay for. >> very important information to share, tracie. it is 5:43. michael jackson's personal doctor will find out how long he will spend in jail for his part in the pop star's death. prosecutors want the judge to give conrad murray the maximum four-year prison term. the lawyers are asking for probation. he died from the powerful anesthetic propofol. new trouble this morning for gop presidential candidate herman cain. a georgia woman said she and
5:44 am
cain had an affair that lasted 13 years and ended a few months before he started his presidential campaign. ginger says cain bought her plane tickets. he denies the affair. the black friday pepper spray incident at a wal-mart store could have been self defense. the woman involved showed up at a police department on saturday, but she did not answer any questions. detectives now looking at security video and youtube videos. you can hear people saying "i'm being trampled." they say the case of pepper spray will hinge on whether it was self defense or simply a very inappropriate shopping tactic. >> amazing. >> 5:34. pretty amazing to see the fog
5:45 am
out there this morning. >> it's a day when we traditionally see fog. not so much the case in san jose where we have deep fokts out there this morning. so give yourself plenty of time. i'm expecting almost completely clear conditions as a big ridge of high pressure sets up over us overnight. this is the last di of the really thick fog. make sure you're ready for it. it is really peaceful across the bay, including the golden goalen great bridge. right now it's in place until 9:00 a.m. we now have flight delays with low ceilings. that was the case yesterday. but nothing out of san jose yesterday just yet.
5:46 am
concord had eight mile visibility an hour ago. so it's starting to creep into the tri valley as we speak. we expect more of it to develop through sunrise. but we stop the future cast at 10:00 a.m. and you can see mostly clear conditions everywhere. but the central valley. they'll likely be socked in with fog all day long. so if you're headed to southern california, make sure to take your time out there. give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination safely. it is really thick. 45 in san jose. 35 in gilroy. temperatures end up in the 60s. a couple upper 50s in the places with the fog. fairfield with 59 degrees. through tomorrow the winds of change start to take shape. we are talking about some major, major winds pumping through the higher elevations. so that's what we're watching for for you.
5:47 am
pg&e is on board expecting power outages due to downed power lines. that will be starting tomorrow at sunrise. no rain in the forecast. lots of sunshine as we head into the weekend. let's find out about your slow drive with mike inouye. >> that what we have. slow drive. you should slow the speeds because of lower visibility. we have slowing here. northbound 101. things are more crowded in the south bay. i'll watch this and monitor to see if it sticks around. construction continues. but that should clear. highway 17, redwood estate and towards the summit you have construction zones clearing. very tough to see over the santa cruz mountains as well. that will be an issue. watch for the crews and the flashing lights. highway 9 and 91, low visibility
5:48 am
