passenger out of the car, the marine drove off. police fired their weapons, hitting and killing devillena. >> after we collect the witness statements, the statements from the officers involved and the evidence at the scene, we'll have a better determination of what actually occurred, what was occurring in the minds of the officers and what led them to use their weapons in this incident. >> reporter: devillena's friend was not hurt. inside the car they found a stolen phone and atm card. devillena had recently returned from a tour in afghanistan and was weeks away from finishing his service in the marines. he was in town last week touring local colleges. he had a passion for music which is one reason why he wanted to study sound engineering. bob redell, "today in the bay." he founded what turned out to be a multimillion dollar anti-virus company in the silicon valley, but this morning john mcafee is a wanted man. authorities in central america
say he may have killed his neighbor. marla tellez is in the newsroom with the mcafee manhunt now under way. >> reporter: good morning. john mcafee sold his anti-virus company for about $100 million. fast forward almost 20 years later and he is now in hiding somewhere in central america. police in belize say the 67-year-old is a person of interest, wanted for questioning in the death of his neighbor, 52-year-old greg fall. fall was found shot to death over the weekend on his property in belize where he lives next door to mcafee. mcafee called "wired" magazine to declare his innocence, telling the reporter he believes the government has a vendetta against him. he tells the magazine, quote, under no circumstances am i going to willingly talk to the police in this country. you can say i'm paranoid about it, but they will kill me. there is no question.
this is not the first time mcafee has been in trouble with the law. earlier this year in april, his home was raided. officers confiscated weapons and found equipment to make antibiotics and antiseptics, which they are investigating. police say mcafee was arrested and released. as for fall, his neighbor who is now dead, mcafee says he knows nothing about that death. laura. >> thank you very much, marla. we have breaking news right now in daly city. evacuations are under way near hillside park due to a major water leak in that area. we're told there is a lot of debris in that area. we just got off the phone with the water department who says they have just arrived and they're working on the leak. christie smith is on her way to the scene as well. she'll bring us an update as soon as we know more. an autopsy today could provide more clues into the suspicious death of a man found dying in a trash can. 21-year-old joshua perez was

with general john allen. john allen replaced general petraeus in afghanistan. now, these e-mails have been discovered and are under investigation by the inspector general at the pentagon. what was their relationship? we do not know. that question was not answered by senior defense officials. but they do say that allen denies any inappropriateness, any wrongdoing. interestingly he was already in town for a confirmation hearing that was previously scheduled for thursday. they were moving him from afghanistan to europe to oversee our forces there. that requires senate confirmation. he was here preparing for that. now according to the defense secretary who made the initial announcement early this morning about this new investigation, that confirmation is on hold. he keeps his job until they have some evidence that there was any wrong doing, which of course he denies. until the investigation has cleared him, he keeps his job. meantime, the general who was going to replace allen in
afghanistan, they're asking the senate to fast track that confirmation. lots of moving parts in this one. jon. >> thank you very much on that one. we'll keep everybody posted. thanks to a heavy weekend of snow, some tahoe ski resorts are planning to open up early. heavenly and north star plan to get things going tomorrow while kirkwood says it's going to open on friday. over the weekend you can see the sierra getting more than two feet of snow so they're ready to rock and roll. >> they have got the snow machines going too to add to it. >> you get a twinkle in your eye when the snow starts happening. >> i say we just make the road trip on friday. >> i'll sit in the lodge and sip on some hot cocoa. >> maybe i'll get a tobaggen. if you're headed up to tahoe, it's going to be nice and chilly but we're expecting more snowfall. what i can tell you is if you want the freshest powder, yeah, i would hold off until saturday.

tomorrow. we'll hold on to the low 70s by thursday an then it starts to get a little dicey. an area of low pressure comes through the beay area. some pretty good snowfall in the sierra nevada above 6,000 feet. saturday into sunday another system starts to drop into the bay area and this is hard to gauge right now. it looks like it has the potential of tapping into subtropical moisture. if that's the case, we could get dumped on but it doesn't seem to be the case. we're keeping your rain nice and light sunday into monday. count on a wet pattern redeveloping late sunday into monday. let's get you to work on time. >> you know that abbreviated workweek means we had yesterday off and that kind of shifts things over as well. we're seeing a first burst as we expect but look at the map. it's not playing out the same way we typically see, especially on a tuesday. just mild slowing. we usually see a good stretch of slowdown so this might be a little easier build.
we'll reserve that for a few more minutes until we see how things are shaping up. 17 a little slowing through the construction zone but typical heading down toward the summit, toward bear creek. here highway 9 at glen arbor, we do have reports of wires down and that might affect the entire intersection there but it's kind of a multi-faceted intersection. basically if you don't need to go through ben lomond don't right now. there are 3,000 customers without power. looking over towards sunol, there's a smooth drive out of the pleasanton. 580 pretty light largely because of all the folks held up here, west 580 coming up toward mountain house. we still have a sig alert. look at all that backup. that's good news for most of our viewers because that's holding up traffic out of the altamont pass. once they unleash that, you'll see the slowing through the tri-valley. we'll get a live look and see how things are shaping up. we'll end with this view of westbound 80 and the build. you're still around the 50s,
upper 50s coming down through berkeley. back to you. right now we have breaking news to tell you about out of daly city. let's get you a look here where it is on the map. evacuations under way near hillside park. this is because of flooding in that area. we give you a live look, our chopper is on scene there. mud and debris covering the streets this morning. crews from the water department are on scene and they say they are working on some kind of leak. we do have a crew on the scene. christie smith is there gathering information for us. we will bring you the latest on that flooding situation, evacuation in daly city coming up in a little bit. this morning a san mateo county judge decides how to proceed after throwing out the murder charges against a man convicted of killing his once best friend. the judge also said police violated gregory elarm's fifth amendment rights by ignoring his request for an attorney. he was charged with the murder for the shooting death of david lewis outside the hillsdale
shopping center back in 2010. the south bay mom accused of using her daughter to help her rob a grocery store is expected to enter a plea today. marcia rico was arrested last month. police say he left her then 10 yaurld daughter with a cartful of stolen groceries in morgan hill. she said she did it because she had financial trouble. she is expected to be in court this afternoon entering her plea. 49ers quarterback alex smith may remain on the sideline during monday night's game against the bears. smith got a concussion on sunday and he was feeling reportedly less woozy yesterday, but he still needs to be cleared by a neurologist before he can even practice. even if he does practice, that doesn't guarantee he can play. smith must be completely symptom-free during a contact practice before he's even cleared by doctors. >> niners hoping to have him back soon but got to make sure he is healthy. to the ball yard where major
league baseball is all set to anoun the managers of the year. both the giants and a's in the hunt. the giants manager bruce bochy of course getting all kinds of credit for that phenomenal playoff run and of course locking in another world series title. that is two in the last three years. he's got a great shot. on the american league side, a's manager bob melvin credited with taking a team a lot of people counted out of the playoff picture at the beginning of the season, took them all the way to the a.l. west division title. it's 5:49. coming up, the show sold out in a matter of hours but it won't take divine intervention to get your hands on tickets to the "book of more mmmormon." plus target employees seeing red over a new plan to open on thanksgiving. and right now a live look over sman jose. temperatures brisk and cool. christina loren says we'll get sunshine and slightly warmer than yesterday so plan accordingly. it is 5:50.

of seats. names will be drawn 90 minutes before the curtain goes up. "book of mormon" won nine tony awards, including one for best musical. nothing like an early start. target says it will open up on thanksgiving to help get a jump on your holiday shopping, but scott mcgrew says some people seeing red. >> reporter: yeah, those who wear red at target. employees have started a petition to ask them to reconsider the early opening on thanksgiving. obviously the problem with opening on thanksgiving itself means people have to work thanksgiving instead of spending time with their families. a letter addressed to the target ceo says in part, quote, give thanksgiving back to the families. the world won't end if people have to wait seven more hours to buy useless junk that will be outdated in a year anyway. that written by a california target employee who started the petition. other news, the guy lots of people thought would be the next ceo of microsoft doesn't work at

clear. there's a new accident on 101 i'll watch. and the bay bridge toll plaza, we have those cash lanes with the backup. we'll watch the metering lights probably turned on in about 15, guys. back to you. oxford university has named its word of the year for 2012. the word is "omnishambles." the definition, a situation that has been comprehensively mismanaged characterized by a string of blunders and miscalculations. the oxford university press says it chose the word to reflect everything from the crisis ridden preparations for the london olympics to government pr blunders. the term was first coined by writers of the british tv comedy "the thick of it." while it is the word of the year, it has not been granted entrance into the oxford english dictionary. >> it will be interesting to see how long before we hear alex trebek say that. still ahead, he thought he was being funny when police put him in jail.
