just been in the neighborhood driving home. this is what they're saying. it looks like he was there wrong place, wrong time and oakland police got a call to 98th and holly street and found two gun shot victims down. two men, one hit in the leg, the other in the chest. police not sure if they were firing at someone else or each other. but they say a third man happened to drive by. and he was grazed by a bullet too. we spoke with his roommate. >> i just got a phone call. he just was up here, i guess he drove from where he was shot from and just pulled up in front of our house pretty much. it was just caught in a cross-fire somewhere down oakland. and just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. >> reporter: now his car window was blown out in all of this, but he was able to make it home before being treated. that roommate says he was hit in the collarbone, he thinks, but he was talking and the watch
commander on duty says at this point it appears that everyone will be okay. reporting live in oakland, "today in the bay." 6:02 this morning. new claims from a death row inmate that more human bones are buried on dozens of new sites in the central valley. convicted killer wesly shermantine has given police another map of where more bodies are kept. lyndon is a town in san joaquin county. this is the second time he supplied information leading to remains. shermantine and his now dead partner were dubbed the speed-free killers after several murders in the '80s. a man accused of killing several people at oikos university is in the infirmary this morning. he has not eaten since he's been in jail. goh is offered three meals a day
along with water and juice. they do think he has sipped on the water and milk. a sheriff department spokesman says goh's refusing food because he's ashamed, not out of protest. out of service but not out of sight. san bruno city leaders may order pg & e to remove the pipeline left underground after the deadly 2010 explosion. live in san bruno now with more on this plan. stephanie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, marla. here along glenn view, you see the equipment that was left behind by construction crews that should be getting here in a couple of hours. they've been working monday through friday from the morning till night to help repair some of the damage left behind. and the pipeline in question line 132 was built here decades ago, but now people are pushing for it to get out of this neighborhood. the pipeline has been out of service since that 2010 blast, but it still runs 8,200 feet through the neighborhood. it's physical evidence of the
deadly blast that killed eight people and destroyed 38 homes. so some neighbors have been pushing the city to help get that natural gas pipeline, which is 30 inches in diameter to be torn out of here. of course, it'd be a long and pretty messy process, but it is something city council members will consider at the regular meeting tonight. now, the second option is what pg & e suggested, plugging the pipe with concrete or a third suggestion that city staff has been recommending, a mixture of both. tearing out 900 feet and plugging the rest of the pipeline with concrete. no matter what is decided, pg & e expressed the company will pay all the costs associated with this project, with this operation. those are the three main options. neither the mayor nor city council members have said what they will support. live in san bruno, "today in the bay." san jose city leaders getting a look at the report on the police department this morning. and an independent audit, the auditor looked at all complaints received enclosed in audit

in place at schools in morgan hill following the disappearance of sierra lamar. the mercury news says if students don't show up to school, the district's automatic calling system now notifies parents in the morning and that evening. the 15-year-old sophomore wz was last seen at her home on march 16th. she never made it to school and her motor home was not notified of her daughter's absence until that evening. in the meantime, america's most wanted says it'll be in morgan hill this week to tape a segment surrounding sierra's disappearance. an east bay community could lose an emergency room facility. they'll soon take ownership of san leandro hospital and there are fears in the community that it will close the hospital and turn it into a rehab facility. the county operates fairmont hospital in san leandro, but fairmont does not have a trauma center. emergency admissions would have to go to highland hospital in oakland or eden medical center in castro valley. there's no official word yet
