who is in charge in san jose? first the police chief, and now the fire chief. willie mcdonald is leaving the bay area's biggest city and joining the las vegas fire department. mcdonald has served as san jose's chief since 2010. he says his new position in vegas is a unique professional opportunity. mcdonald's departure comes just months after san jose's police chief resigned. it started with a minor fender-bender and ended with the shooting death of a man who have celebrated his 23rd birthday today that shooting in oakland last night about 11:00 on the 5800 block of market. tonight police want to know what
you know. nbc bay area's kimberly tere is live in berkeley, and that is a road rage incident we're talking about? >> reporter: that's exactly right, jessica. police say that the victim was playing basketball here on the cal berkeley campus before the shooting happened. he was actually on his way home. and we spoke to some people who played basketball with him last night who say that they are devastated, and call the murder senseless. >> he is a really cool kid. i mean, i think he started coming here maybe a couple of months ago right after he graduated. he was learning basically basketball. >> aya nakano would have been 23 years old today. the recent university of oregon graduate went to cal last night as usual to play basketball, and was on his way home to emeryville when police say he was rear-ended. that happened on stanford avenue and market. >> our victim pulled over to the curb in the 5800 block of market street. the suspect vehicle also pulled over. >> reporter: police say at that point there was some kind of
confrontation between nakano and two men in the other car. that's when nakano was shot and killed. >> i don't understand it. but -- and i know exactly where it happened. i don't think he had the attitude to try to piss someone off. he is only 5'2", 5'3". >> i was shocked. i don't think he would say anything to provoke such an action, because he was a really humble guy. he would be cracking jokes and just like having a good time in the basketball. he was a good guy to get along with. so sad to see him go. >> reporter: police say nakano did exactly what he was supposed to do last night. >> he did the right thing. you're supposed to pull over, stop, exchange information. unfortunately, something did not work out, and we have someone that was killed over it. >> reporter: police say the shooting is tragic and want to remind people when you are in an accident, it's a good idea to pull over in a well lit and crowded area if possible. they also suggest calling someone to let them know where you are. and above all, trust your gut.
>> if you don't feel safe, it's okay to leave that scene, go to another area, contact police and explain this is why i did what i did. >> reporter: police say the suspects were in a newer silver four-door sedan, possibly with some front end damage. they are looking for any witnesses who may have seen the accident or the altercation. if you are one of those people, oakland police does want to hear from you. live in berkeley, kimberly tere, nbc bay area news. >> kimberly, thank you. also in oakland, it could soon get harder to file a police report, get your home inspected, or even drive down the road without hitting a pothole. more than 3,000 of the city's union employees have now voted to authorize a strike if negotiations on a new contract fail. no word when the strike would begin, and no comment yet from the city. the last time oakland workers hit the picket lines was 1946. president obama says the red line has been crossed. today the white house announced it will intervene in syria's civil war. >> nbc bay area's janelle wang
has more on this developing story. >> reporter: for months, president obama had threatened to take action if syrian president bashar al assad uses chemical weapons against rebels. and today a new intelligence assessment that was shared with both congress and key u.s. allies around the world says the regime is specifically sarin gas on a small scale, killing as many as 150 syrians. today's assessment is a confirmation of a preliminary intelligence report the president spoke about in april. >> knowing that potentially chemical weapons have been used inside of syria doesn't tell us when they were used, how they were use. >> reporter: since then, the white house disclosed today it has been quietly ramping up support for the syrian opposition, specifically, a group called the supreme military council. the white house has promise in order military support, but would not disclose any specifics. republican senator john mccain applauded the president's decision, but senator lindsey graham says the u.s. needs to make sure the weapons don't end
up in the wrong hands. >> my goal is to make sure they're not used against us or israel, or allies throughout the world. >> reporter: also today the united nations released its latest figures on the death toll in syria. it estimates 93,000 people have been killed since the civil war began just over two years ago. other experts say that number is closer to 100,000. janelle wang, nbc bay area news. well, it made international headlines when a thousand people died after a building in the garment district in bangladesh collapsed back in april. tonight a study released by engineers there show massive flaws in the construction and design of more than 200 clothing factories in bangladesh. they say the buildings are mostly residential in nature and are not designed for weight and vibration that comes with making clothes. many retailers have signed a pledge to improve building construction. however, san francisco-based gap, which uses factories in bangladesh, has not signed that agreement. gap says it's copping up with
its own safety plans. it is friday morning in iran, and people there are already heading to the polls. current iranian president mahmood ahmadinejad has termed out. a big turnout so mean good things for the centrist. a low turnout could likely favor one of the members of the hard line party. one week after his boss was in town, vice president joe biden will be in the area. he is flying in tomorrow on air force two. mr. biden will attend a fundraising for example in the upscale sea cliff. a private reception with the vice president will run you ten grand. here is a riddle for you. what is 8x12, hard as concrete and painted in yellow or white and. if you answered one block from at&t park, you're the winner. that's what this space is going for. once the new owner writes that check for $82,000, it will be yearly property taxes and monthly hoa dues to pay as well.
the realtor who sold the space says you could consider it a bargain or maybe an investment. a parking space can add $100,000 to the price of a home or condo in south beach. live picture news of the bay bridge this evening. it looks beautiful, or could we call it the willie brown bridge? california lawmakers want to name the western span of the bridge in honor of the colorful former san francisco mayor. when brown was da mayor, he had significant input in the upgrade of the seismic portion of the bridge. >> it will have to have a fedora as well. >> there will be a lot of color on the bridge. let's turn things over to jeff ranieri. the next couple of days we're going to start to see a little bit of a warm-up, and it's going to be dangerous. >> fire danger is increasing throughout the next 24 hours across the east bay, also for the south bay as the northwest wind gets going for tomorrow. but i really think the east bay is going to have the worst of this concern, especially in the hills above one thousand feet. temperatures in the 80s.
also humidity that will be from about 20 to 30%. so, again, in the east bay, we'll have the fire danger elevated. likely as we head throughout all of summer we're going to see that fire danger increased for us. throughout friday a little bit of cloud cover the coastline. not a big fog event expected for us. and mainly sunny skies right through 4:00 p.m. across the bay. also the interior valleys. temperatures jumping in the upper 80s as we head throughout 4:00 p.m. we just saw the bay bridge. take a look at again because it looks so beautiful tonight. no fog here from emeryville looking back towards san francisco. in facts hard to find any kind of marine layer tonight near downtown sf. well, the pattern is looking more like february and also march here out in the pacific. we have this upper-level area of low pressure spinning out here that continues to get closer. it's going to be good enough to keep, well, the fog moving back in as we head namely throughout saturday and sunday. it will keep the rainfall off to the north, also with some of the colder air. and some of the hot weather we'll get for tomorrow is going to be pushing towards the south.
looks like fog is going to become a factor here back in the forecast as we head throughout saturday morning. that's when we'll start to notice the larger changes for us where everyone is expected to wake up with some sort of cloud cover, back for the east bay right up towards the coastline. otherwise for tomorrow we'll see the temperatures increasing with some of the hottest levels, just like we had for today in the extreme south bay. 86 in morgan hill. 89 in gilroy. 84 in san jose. 78 in santa cruz. also 87 in sunnyvale. and for the east bay, some of the most widespread, hottest temperatures will be located here. here is the thing. the wind is going to move right across a lot of these east bay hills. it's going to do what we call abatic warming. it's going to take parcels of air. as it gets forced down the hills, the air has no choice but to heat up. 88 in dublin. 89 in livermore and 88 expected in walnut creek. for san francisco, go 70 for you. 87 in santa rosa. 76 in berkeley. on the seven-day forecast, temperatures do start to cool off as we mention as that fog
returns saturday and sunday with 70s inland and 60s at the coastline. and as summer officially begins next week, wouldn't you know it, we have more temperatures that will feel more spring-like than summer-like. mother nature hasn't made up her mind in three years here in the bay area. looks like summer is going to be just as wacky. >> it's a three-year forecast. that's my prediction. >> thanks. >> you're welcome. up next, a part of our local history lost to time. her story coming up.
one of the last survivors of the 1906 san francisco earthquake has died. winnie hook passed away on tuesday at the age of 107. she is shown here in a picture from the 2012 dinner honoring the survivors. winnie's passing leaves us with just two remaining survivors of that earthquake. 107-year-old william del monte, and 111 ruth neuman. a very big win for a pint-sized fighter. the little girl who won a nationally publicized battle to
