street, 600 block, witnesses tell us -- a witness tells us she saw the police arrive and some woman taken out to an ambulance to be examined. as you mentioned earlier, this was a domestic violence call. the video you're now watching is a prior -- of a prior appearance for smith. so far the san francisco police have not told us the woman who called for help did not -- so far the san francisco police told us the woman who called for help did not suffer life threatening injuries but not described what's alleged to have happened inside this building. smith was not here when the police arrived and according to plis radio calls, smith was seen climbing out of a window of the building down a fire escape and then he jumped into a black range rover and drove off. departments with the special victim units are still trying to locate him. in a statement released today by the san francisco police, they are hoping he will contact them. >> if you give our investigators
a call, that would be great, they can set up a time and place to conduct an interview. if there's anyone who knows about the whereabouts we would like them to give the call on the tipline and provide that information. >> now this is not the first domestic violence investigation in san francisco that smith has been tied up in. in february of last year, the then suspended oakland raiders linebacker was questioned for a separate incident. smith started his nfl career with the san francisco 49ers in 2011 but he was released from the team in august of 2015 after being arrested for suspicion of dui, hit-and-run and vandalism. at that time it was his fourth arrest and third dui charge with the 49ers. smith is still on an extended as you say spepgs from the nfl and last year for that domestic violence incident last year, he was hoping to be reinstated and obviously now we're trying to

meteorologist rob mayeda has the forecast for the workweek. >> clear skies will set the stage for a chilly night tonight. you can see san francisco currently seeing temperatures in the mid-50s and similar as they said south towards san jose. 52 with these clearing skies and temperatures will be cooling quickly, could see patchy frost in the inland valleys especially around the north bay and east bay combined with runoff in the hill tops, look out for icy roadways around some spots around highway 17 or the areas around mt. hamilton and maybe in the north bay. some of that may add to ice on the roadways. nothing showing up on the storm ranger doppler radar but we have two more opportunities for finding rain and snow in our 7-day forecast. the timing of when the rain will make a comeback coming up. >> thanks, rob. >> water officials hoping the snow pack survey has better results after all of that
snowfall. tomorrow will be the third of five surveys this season of the last survey about a month ago showed the snow pack at just 14% of his torical average which is actually an improvement over the december measurement. wherever you are in the bay, the nbc bay area app is there to help. you can monitor conditions throughout the day while you're on the go. >> standing with the students of parkland, local students in the east bay held an event to raise money for the victims of that florida school shooting. trying to spark more dialogue about gun violence. this comes days before national walkout. nbc bay area christie smith is live in pleasanton with more. >> reporter: spent hours in the park raising money and want to urge lawmakers to act. after the school shooting in florida, they'd like to be part of the solution. >> at a park in pleasanton, students brought out posters and t-shirts to make signs and the #neveragain and enough.
>> after the shooting in parkland, think all of our -- we were all really shocked and we hate how school shootings are being treated as if they are inestible in our country because they are not. this is our way of doing something about it. >> i just donated to the folks here. >> they raised $2500 for the funds set up after the school shooting. and plan to walk out of class for 17 minutes on march 14th and gather on campus. part of a national day of action. >> i think reasonably common sense gun laws are really important. >> reporter: her cousin's best friend was killed in the parkland school shooting. >> after that i kind of realized this affects so many real people, real families. >> this comes as senator dianne feinstein expressed optimism after remarks from president trump at the meeting on gun control. there hasn't been firm movement in washington. the bay area has been packed town hall meetings on gun violence prevention. lafayette last week, emotions ran high. >> why don't we look at the root
of the problem and find out why people are doing this instead of blaming gun owners. >> students today want to be part of the change. >> it's not just about california, it's a national problem. this is our way of being part of the national conversation. >> reporter: the school district says a message that went out to their community about the potential for demonstrations and included a message that they would work to ensure that freedom of speech and safety were given the highest priority. reporting live in pleasanton, christie smith, nbc bay area numbers. >> tuesday is a big day for south bay gun owners, the santa clara count by board of supervisor supervisors, two gun shows happen each year. one supervisor says the county only made $6,000 on the last event so he proposed the ban in an effort to keep guns off south
bay streets. >> the primary mission of the county is the health and welfare of our residents. and it seems to me that it's very counter productive to have something like a gun show where people can buy and sell guns at a county facility. >> some gun owners say the show should be regulated instead of stopped completely. firefighters made quick work of a house fire in loss gatos near blossom hill elementary. they smelled smoke and able to get out and firefighters say it had a fire wall in between the home and garage and helped contain the flames and the fire was out about 10:00 a.m. investigators looking into what caused that fire. >> mission accomplished. members of the california air national guard successfully rescued a man 700 miles out at sea. he was on board a carrier ship on friday and got very ill. 129th rescue wing took off from

30s and 40s around the bay area and 52 currently in san jose. our storm ranger mobile doppler radar, the loop not picking up anything. we had a few brief showers around the far north bay hill tops close to mt. hamilton. everything stabilizing and really moisture starting to move out with clearing skies and drier air. we'll see in our wind sheltered valley around the north bay, a chance of patchy frost and given that we had recent snow in the areas around the santa cruz mountains and mt. hamilton, we'll have to see if that changes to ice if it melts overnight. use extra caution on your hill top compute as we head into monday morning. as temperatures climb through the week, that will be a little bit less of an issue by tuesday and wednesday. highs tomorrow in the 60s around the south bay. that's an improvement from the upper 50s today. mid 60s around sunol and livermore and oakland tomorrow. low 60s from palo alto and upper 50s from half moon bay to
downtown san francisco. for the north bay, temperatures chilly to start the day but 30 degree swing in the temperatures with highs climbing in the low 60s by the afternoon. the hour by hour forecast, monday looks fine, tuesday increasing clouds but increasing temperatures, mild air moving in for first half of the week. could see niumbers in the mid-60s. next chance of widespread rain will show up late on wednesday, likely starting off in the north bay. it may not be a big impact on the wednesday evening commute but as we get into thursday morning, especially, that's the time we suspect we'll see most of the rain that comes down. what we do get from wednesday night through friday again, nothing like the system we just saw. expectations are just generally less than a quarter nch rain and closer to 6,000 feet. the timeline wednesday to early thursday. by thursday night, skies begin to clear and friday into saturday at this point looks dry but bit of a change in the forecast now. next sunday into next monday the
12th. looks like our next chance for find are more widespread rain. two chances of rain coming in, mainly thursday and late next weekend but in the meantime we have another chilly morning tomorrow but take time highs starting to climb out of the low 50s for highs yesterday. may see 70s tuesday and wednesday looks mild too. even if the rain chances we don't go back highs in the 50s. starting to look more like march in the seven-day forecast. >> feeling like spring. i like it. thank you. >> just ahead, one of the most talked about movies in some time and some lucky kids got to watch it today thanks for someone else. we'll have that story and more coming up next.
