6:01 am
good morning to you and thanks for joining us. i'm laura garcia-cannon. >> and i'm jon kelley. good morning, everybody. we begin with a developing story out of oakland where an early morning shooting has sent an 11-year-old child to the hospital. bob redell is live at the scene of that shooting. bob, i know it's early out there but you had a chance to sit down with the family members, correct? >> reporter: yeah, good morning to you, jon. at first angelina thought it was the sound of fireworks that was ringing out around 1:00 this morning outside her home here on macon road in oakland, but she realized that wasn't the case once she heard her 11-year-old brother, luis antonio start screaming. that sound, as i mentioned, was gunfire randomly aimed at their house. you can see some of the bullet holes right there in the front. another one of those bullets passed through a photograph of luis antonio. as you can see it was just inside their house. and another one of those bullets hit him in the chest. he's at oakland children's right
6:02 am
now. his family just spoke with his mother who's with him. that bullet did hit him in the lungs, but he is talking and his family is under the impression that he is going to be okay. he was hit as he slept in a room located in the very back of the house. >> the bullet went through over there. there's two right there, one right there and those two got him. he got shot on the chest and then like as soon as he felt it, he got up and he started running around like the whole house, like really scared and crying. and so like he couldn't take it anymore. and, yeah, he was just bleeding so much. >> reporter: what's remarkable is that no one else was hit by these bullets. there were people sleeping in the front portion of the house who were not hit. ten people total, all family members. they do, again, believe this was a random drive-by.
6:03 am
they have counted 16 bullets that entered their house. according to police, they believe it was a .38 and .48 caliber bullets fired from a handgun. the family has heard gunshots fired in this neighborhood many times before. none of them have ever been aimed at their house. they do not believe they were targeted, they believe this was random. because of what has happened this morning, they say they are definitely looking at moving out of here. bob redell, "today in the bay." >> amazing what is happening because an hour and a half earlier, there was another shooting on oakland streets leaving three adults injured. it happened on seminary avenue near mills college. this is about five miles north of the shooting bob just talked about. two of the victims are in stable condition. the third in serious condition. the suspects are still on the loose. happening right now, a warning to joggers as police are searching for a sexual assault suspect who continues to prey on one of the bay area's nicest
6:04 am
neighborhoods. christie smith joins us live from palo alto where police have some very specific advice for women this morning. good morning, christie. >> reporter: good morning to you, jon. you know, i did see one woman jogging this morning but i have to tell you that she swung way out there and didn't come this way. the latest assault happened on this trail that we're on this morning very early, around 7:00 a.m. yesterday. and if steve can pan over here, i wanted to show you on every light post out here there are warning signs, sketches up this morning. police are concerned number one tham that this latest incident could be linked to two other assaults. number two, that the person doing this could be getting more bold and could escalate. a woman was joining yesterday morning when police say that a man came up behind her, bear hugged her and groped her. he tried to pull her to the ground. she fell and the suspect took off. >> actually started jogging after him, still screaming. picked up her cell phone that
6:05 am
she had with her and called us on the phone while she was following him from a safe distance. >> reporter: now, the signs up this morning show a sketch of the person they believe is responsible for the two other assaults. likely this one as well. the suspect in those incidents, 25 to 40 years old of east indian or hispanic descent. 5'9" tall. women advised, as you said earlier, not to wear headphones in both ears when they're jogging. carry a cell phone with you and if at all possible, jog with a friend. reporting live in palo alto, christie smith, "today in the bay." uc berkeley police are warning students to be aware of robbers posing as magazine salespeople on campus. on september 10th, a student reported being robbed by a man selling magazines. the victim claims when she declined the sale, the man and two accomplices threatened her, forcing her to withdraw $400
6:06 am
from a campus atm. sips the warning went out, multiple students have come forward with similar stories. troubling new details in a high profile homicide near watsonville. police say they believe naval professor lawrence jones repeatedly shot his 29-year-old estranged wife inside of his home and then cut her body up before dumping those parts near watsonville. 69-year-old jones is being held without bail at the monterey county jail. an oakland teen accused of killing his adoptive parents will stand trial as an adult. an alameda county judge has now ruled there is enough evidence to try 16-year-old moses cayman. prosecutors say he killed his parents in january during a fit of rage over trouble in school. cayman's lawyer is planning to appeal the ruling. he said cayman suffers from mental disorders and other conditions due to a traumatic childhood. this one is a very scary
6:07 am
scene. this morning we're learning more about the crash that started a major fire at an east bay gas station. have a look at the surveillance video. you can see a car backing up and it goes right into a pump at a gas station in martinez yesterday. that pump, you can see immediately caught fire. firefighters there say if that station manager hadn't been on the scene making a great move here, he jumped up and hit the emergency shutoff. if he hadn't done that, the fire would have been almost impossible to control. police say the suv's driver likely pressed the accelerator instead of the brake. it's nice to bring you some good news. a san jose firefighter back home nearly a month after his heart stopped while battling a fire. marla tellez is live in the south bay with more details on his recovery. good morning. >> reporter: laura, good morning. station 1 right here in downtown san jose, this is where frank ryan has been stationed for about ten years of his 15-year
6:08 am
career with the san jose fire department. his captain inside tells me that frank, as soon as he got released from the hospital yesterday, his first order of business was to come see his crew here at station 1. captain brian endicott says frank hung out with the crew for about an hour yesterday afternoon. he says he looks great and was in good spirits. you'd never know august 30th ever happened. that was the day frank's heart stopped, he went interest cardiac arrest at the scene of a three-alarm fire near downtown san jose. captain endicott was there and in fact remembers seeing frank collapse. >> it was almost unbelievable. i mean to see one of your own guys go down, you know, right in front of you. very tough, emotional day. but to see him, like i said, come back, to be able to walk through the doors here yesterday was a great day for all of us. >> reporter: doctors say it was a blessing in disguise that the 41-year-old went into cardiac arrest on the job, surrounded by
6:09 am
fellow firefighters who, of course, are trained to save lives. otherwise the outcome could have been a whole lot different. now, the captain tells me that frank actually remembers everything that day, right up until the moment he collapsed. he says he is absolutely looking forward to making his comeback here at station 1 in a few more months. live in san jose, marla tellez, "today in the bay." >> we wish him a great recovery. >> just a month later, already back and feeling pretty good. amazing. 6:09. rob mayeda is here to talk about the weather. a cool week but you said we might get a warm bump tomorrow? >> it looks like we'll see one warm day in the last couple days of summer. 40s and 50s outside. look out in santa rosa this morning, you've got quarter mile visibility due to patchy low clouds and fog. inland upper 70s in the warmest places around the bay. only low 60s out on the coast. so yes, tomorrow, inland out towards the tri-valley a little bit of warming and cooling as you approach sunday. we'll take you out to 880,
6:10 am
the nimitz freeway, where the northbound side picks up the volume but also picking up this. the map shows you we picked up the car fire. no longer an issue. in fact they just cleared it off the board for chp at 23rd. the off-ramp is clear, so is the freeway. the yellow, speeds just below 60 in the upper 50s because of the volume of traffic heading towards the bay bridge toll plaza. look outside and we'll see how things are shaping up at the toll plaza. we have all lanes suddenly filling in. looks like they have turned those metering lights on in the last two minutes. another live look shows you the volume of traffic building for the south bay. we have slowing for 101 just north of 680. we'll give you a bigger look coming up. >> thanks, mike. 6:20 rig10 right now. fast and furious under fire. the inspector general gets ready to get grilled on capitol hill. why he says he cleared the attorney general in a botched drug trafficking sting that sent hundreds of weapons into mexico in the wrong hands. and the new apple maps will get you to point a to point q. we'll take a look coming up in business.

new this morning, a south bay man who lost his life trying to save others is now being honored as a hero. william walker of san jose among 19 people receiving this year's carnegie medal for heroism. walker died two years ago after plunging into the ocean in carmel to rescue a group of people knocked into the water by a big wave. all but one of those victims survived. walker, sadly, drowned while trying to pull the last victim up to shore. walker's loved ones will receive that medal and a grant in his name. if you're just waking up with us this morning, here's a quick check of the day's top stories. a warning to women jogging alone on palo alto trails, after police say a serial sexual predator has struck again. police say their suspect is
6:14 am
likely responsible for several recent attacks, including one yesterday morning on a path through el palo alto park. sadly, an 11-year-old boy is in the hospital after being shot overnight in his own bed. the boy, one of four people injured in two separate shootings in oakland overnight. and a san jose firefighter now out of the hospital after collapsing on the job during a three-alarm fire last month. 41-year-old frank ryan spent weeks in critical condition after his heart stopped as he was fighting that fire on august 30th. >> it is 6:14 right now. if you heard like a loud noise this morning, it might have been apple fans groaning over what has turned out to be just a botched attempt at replacing google maps. >> bloomberg business calls the new apple maps directionally challenged. scott mcgrew says the mistakes are actually not hard to find. >> reporter: yes, good morning. apple erased the city of berlin. though that has been fixed. i spent about six minutes
6:15 am
looking around my neighborhood and discovered apple maps have a particular problem finding schools. case in point, here is valley christian high school. well known in san jose. on the corner of branham and meridian in san jose. except valley christian is nowhere near there. just a few blocks away, we have poineer high school. we're pretty sure that's supposed to be pioneer. if you follow the directions to valley christian to see the valley christian warriors play the poineer mustangs, you'll actually end up at branham high school, home of the bruins. in fact even the school right next to the apple headquarters is listed as collins elementary. there you see it down near the clock. that's actually lawson middle school. now, why does this matter other than apple maps might not get you where you want to go? not only do the maps not reach
6:16 am
apple's high standards but it appears they dropped google maps more as a business decision not because it was best for the user. all of this, jon and laura, can be fixed. arguably it's not entirely apple's fault. the bad data comes from tomtom and yelp. ultimately the apple name is on this and the apple maps do not work. back to you. >> it's a tough debut because everybody is looking and now they're talking. >> the silver lining, though, at least they're consistent. bad but consistent. pretty too, right? and the weather, is it going to be pretty too? >> later on it's going to be pretty nice. right now we've got the fog, chilly temperatures. you'll want to bundle up outside. jacket weather again this morning. the calendar says it's summer somewhere, but just not here. right now you can see the bay bridge looking nice. look at the reflection off the water. not too windy. let's show you the south bay and we can show you what's going on in san jose. there's the nice view, mainly clear skies, patches of low
6:17 am
clouds. i do hope we'll see the same tomorrow right around this time as we'll be watching the shuttle "endeavour" getting closer to the bay area friday morning. let's show you the forecast for the giants game. early start today, 12:45 game time. 65 degrees first pitch. magic number down to five for the giants to clinch the nl west. 45 in santa rosa, patchy fog there. 51 in san jose, 55 in san francisco. the sea breeze not quite as strong. it's starting to back op a little bit. you can see it there in fairfield. this time yesterday it was up to 25 miles per hour so the ocean air conditioning backing off a bit. but quarter mile visibility in santa rosa. look out for some of that fog on your morning commute. tomorrow we're going to see a brief warmup and then temperatures cooling down as we go through the first weekend of fall. upper low offshore keeping the sea breeze going and clouds on the coast except in santa cruz. you'll find 70s there but cool, low 60s into half moon bay.
6:18 am
san jose 72 degrees, upper 70s around morgan hill into the east way out towards the tri-valley. close to 80 in pleasanton. 78 in walnut creek, 75 in -- 63 in san francisco, 73 around san rafael. your forecast heading into tomorrow, we'll see warming in the east bay valleys and midway through the weekend we'll get more clouds and cool down as we head into the second half of the weekend. mike. folks, look at this. we have all these lights behind me. the metering lights are on at the bay bridge toll plaza. we have slowing up the 880 overcrossing and coming down the berkeley curve. but the bridge itself moves smoothly. look at the map on the approach. the maze looks like a nice flow of traffic. eastbound 24 toward the caldecott we typically see this because only one bore is open and we do see some slowing heading toward orinda. we'll also look at your typical build on westbound 5 yakt. red shows you where it's 20. orange is 40s and 50s. really starting to clear once
6:19 am
you pass north livermore and in toward airway, but still you do have bunching up over at the dublin interchange as well. 680 holds up just fine through pleasanton, sunol and into the south bay with your northbound routes holding up pretty nicely here just around tully and just north of 680. 101 shows typical slowing. and we'll get a live look outside the peninsula. here the headlights are northbound past this construction zone. starting to bunch up a bit but the peninsula does mostly move at the limit. north bay a smooth drive southbound with these headlights. a sig alert for highway 29 in calistoga. dwraps acro grapes across the roadway so they have to clean that up. it is a home stretch for top honors in major league baseball. >> in just two weeks the league will announce the winners for mvp, rookie of the year and all cy young award. among the front runners for the nl mvp is giants catcher buster
6:20 am
posey. but he faces very stiff competition from pirates center fielder andrew mccutchen. former oakland a's pitcher could win the cy young award. gonzalez sporting 19 victories. also yoenis cespedes up for rookie of the year but it's more likely to go to mike trout. meantime melky cabrera will most likely get to keep the national league batting title if he wins it. the baseball commissioner said the league likely won't interfere in that process. cabrera is serving a 50-game suspension for a failed drug test but still has the national league's highest batting average. he's seven points ahead of pittsburgh's andrew mccutchen. 6:20. is the bay area bracing for a tsunami?

6:25 am
bad communication compiled on people just not doing their jobs and checking on the safety of this. the fall guy in this is kenneth nelson, the former atf acting director who resigned yesterday after this report went out. the report says that he should have asked more basic questions, should have done a lot more communication. there's another top official who also resigned. 12 others facing disciplinary action. laura, jon, back to you. >> that's one to watch. thank you very much, brian. >> definitely a messy scene on that one. 6:25. rob mayeda will tell us what's happening. cool, but warmer on the way. >> we'll see a little warming inland today, more so tomorrow but this morning it's jacket weather again bay area wide. mid-40s in the north bay. also look out for patchy fog. visibility down to a quarter mile in santa rosa. afternoon temperatures, looking at 60s around san francisco and oakland, low 70s san jose, upper 70s in livermore. tomorrow finally some warming

not so much. sea breeze not quite as strong as 24 hours ago, a sign that we will see warming for our inland east bay valleys but more so come tomorrow. satellite/radar view shows you an area of low pressure offshore. the storm track way off to the north. all that low is really going to do is crank up the winds and cool us off. morning clouds lingering around the bay through mid-morning. as we go through the afternoon, we've got clouds just on the coastline moving back across the bay. low 70s around san jose. tri-valley locations that you normally see near 90-degree temperatures, again, upper 70s. mid-70s around santa rosa. 60s from san francisco over toward oakland. tomorrow will be the last full day of summer and fall gets started saturday and falling temperatures through the weekend. at 6:49 we see the slowdown for 85. look at that, really slamming down. this is the new fall pattern for
6:50 am
85. 87 shows a good slowdown all the way into downtown. 280 has an accident that's the least of your problems because it's off the shoulder. capital for 101 all the way up to the airport, we have good slowing there. the volume continues to build for that northbound route. then it also slows north through mountain view and into palo alto. you notice the incident, the disabled vehicles here. the slowdown all the way back now, it's the ripple effect that happened after the earlier accident cleared. look at the live shot past university. there's no problem as far as the bunching goes. there's that disabled vehicle right under the home depot side off to the shoulder now. looking at the other side of the bay, volume builds southbound for the headlights. 880 slower down into the south bay and also the bay bridge toll plaza, of course we had the metering lights on. the east shore freeway is incident-free but getting filled with cars, of course. back to you. right now to the latest on a developing story we've been covering all morning long. an 11-year-old child rushed to the hospital overnight after

chest and the family who's with him learned it did enter one of his lungs. >> as soon as he felt it, he got up and started running around the whole house, like really scared and crying until he couldn't take it anymore. yeah, he was just bleeding so much. >> it's crazy, man. why y'all doing this for? we didn't do nothing to y'all. so like you're hurting our family and we didn't do nothing to your family. my brother is suffering right now. >> reporter: the family believes thamgs was a random drive-by shooting. they do not believe they were targeted. there have been no arrests. they counted 16 bullets that went through their home, believed to be from a .38 an .45 caliber handgun. again, there are no suspects but the boy is expected to survive. reporting live here in oakland, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> traumatizing event for that child. thank you very much, bob. about an hour and a half before that little boy was shot,
