bay area news. >> thank you very much, mark. we want to show you some breaking news right now. the trump administration has just announced that it is suing to block california -- suing california to block laws limiting cooperation with immigration authorities. as we told you at the top of the show, u.s. attorney general jeff sessions will be in sacramento tomorrow to speak and it is known that he will be making a major announcement concerning sanctuary jurisdictions. you're looking at video of oakland mayor libby schaaf. libby schaaf, as you well know, a couple of weeks ago on the weekend gave a heads up about i.c.e. raids were going to be happening throughout california. that has brought the ire of the trump administration on her. she has been widely criticized. tomorrow we're hearing that jeff sessions is going to be in sacramento. we don't have exact confirmation that this lawsuit has to do with it, but it is suspect that it may be happening, the timing. that may be the announcement
6:06 pm
that jeff sessions will be making tomorrow. of course we'll continue to follow this tonight at 11:00 as we get more information. in the south bay now, a dangerous crime with an expensive cleanup. a citywide shooting spree. someone shot out windows of dozens of cars and businesses. you can see some of the damage there. this happened overnight in nearly a dozen different parts of san jose. nbc bay area's damian trujillo broke the news on twitter and joins us now in san jose. damian. >> reporter: raj, nearly all of the windows at the western store are damaged. there's a hole right here. this window here is shattered and then there is no window here at this door right here. it's all -- the debris is all in this bucket here ready to be picked up. it happened all across allen rock avenue here and all across town. it's believed to be caused by a bb gun. window repair crews were busy all across town today. >> down the street on 7-eleven

6:08 pm
shattered. police say ten other neighborhoods were hit by the same crime. >> it's kind of dangerous. i don't know why they act like that. >> reporter: police don't know if all the vandalism is linked, but merchants on allen rock say they don't care, they just want more vigilance and not just the request to fill out a police report. and good news for the merchants here, the replacement windows have arrived. they're only hoping it doesn't happen again tonight. live in san jose, i'm damian trujillo, nbc bay area. no criminal charges, that's the word from the santa clara county district attorney for the south bay deputy who shot and killed a navy veteran in saratoga. back in september of 2016, deputies went to the home of 86-year-old eugene craig for a welfare check. our investigative unit looked into whether they followed proper protocol when they kicked in two doors and found craig holding a handgun. deputies say that craig ignored their orders to drop it, so they opened fire.
6:09 pm
the official d.a. report says deputies feared for their safety and thus were legally justified in shooting craig. craig's widow, though, has filed a lawsuit against sheriff's department alleging the deputies violated her and her husband's constitutional right and used excessive force. would you believe $1,400 per month to rent a brand new apartment in san francisco? this could be a game-changer. or maybe is it just a curveball. here's a preview of what that neighborhood will look like right next to at&t park in a few years. today the city officially signed off on a longstanding project at mission rock featuring affordable housing. nbc bay area's sam brock joins us near the ballpark. sam, it sounds too good to be true. what are the details? >> reporter: you know, it does sound too good to be true, but it really could become reality, raj. behind me what you're looking at if you've been to at&t park before, that's lot a, one of the parking lots next to the ballpark but this is exactly the same sprace where this sprawlin

multi-use development will go. the city hopes it will have nurses and teachers. if you think my family makes $60,000 or $70,000 or $80,000 a year, how can i afford that, we're digging to get into the details. for everyday san franciscans, it's a sight for sore eyes, pavement at mission rock, a place to call home for middle class workers. >> do you think the city can back that up? >> absolutely. we have 40% affordable housing on this project for low and middle income individuals and families here in san francisco. that's exactly the type of housing we should be building. >> reporter: with the stroke of the pen, mayor mark farrell launched the legislation which has been talked about for a while. >> i believe bruce bochy was a rookie manager at the time for the giants. >> reporter: but this was no rookie move from the giants, who proved team players to put this project into motion. >> what we had to do was say, look, the project is big enough that we will take less of a
6:11 pm
return on the housing in order to make this the first neighborhood. >> reporter: so too did the port of san francisco. the entity that controls the land. by taking less, the city and the ball club open the door for a wider net of people to rent. consider the average median income in san francisco for a family of four is about $115,000. these affordable units will be available to those who make much less and also much more. the range stretches for incomes between $57,000 to $173,000 a year, again for a family of four. convert that into rent. it's as low as around $1,400 a month all the way up to $4,300 a month. in this case san francisco's definition of affordable housing for tfamilies. sam brock, nbc bay area news. well, fda approval with caution, though, after a silicon valley tech company gets the thumbs up for its breast cancer gene test. also moving forward with the controversial gun proposal. the steps santa clara county

6:13 pm
6:14 pm
step closer to becoming a reality. a gun show ban at the santa clara county fairgrounds is one step closer to becoming a reality. today supervisors agreed to draw
6:15 pm
up an official legal ban on selling a gun on county property. so what happens next? >> reporter: well, now the county's legal team is going to delve into several issues that were brought up today, including what's going to happen to metcalf shooting change, which happens to be on county land. there may never be another gun show held here at the santa clara county fairgrounds. the santa clara supervisor is proposing a ban on gun shows on county-owned property. he began pushing for the ban after a gunman killed 17 people at a florida high school last month. >> i just didn't believe it was appropriate to have it at the county fairgrounds. >> reporter: this veteran is getting the ban. >> keep the gun shows. >> reporter: others say the ban would violate their second amendment right. several students from prospect high school spoke out in support of the ban. >> i do support people's second amendment rights. i just don't understand why it
6:16 pm
has to be on public county land. >> reporter: this mom says she thinks it would help keep kids safe. >> it is a drop in the bucket. it will protect students and protect everybody in the community by reducing the prevalence and availability of guns. >> reporter: mark hinkle with the libertarian party argues the proposed ban will send the gun trade underground. >> frankly, this will have no impact whatsoever on gun violence. in fact probably -- it will probably have a positive impact to increase gun violence because gun transfers will happen on the black market instead of out in the open. >> and the measure carries 5-0. >> reporter: after listening to comments from 18 people, the supervisors voted unanimously to have an ordinance drafted that would ban both the sales and possession of guns on county-owned property. another concern is that this proposed ban could prevent the county from hosting gun buyback programs on county land. reporting live in san jose,

6:31 pm
jeff sessions is planning a major announcement about sanctuary jurisdictions. this lawsuit is the major announcement. california and many bay area cities have not cooperated with i.c.e. raids in recent weeks. that includes oakland mayor libby schaaf who gave the community the heads up i.c.e. was doing a sweep. i.c.e. was extremely upset, even calling her the equivalent of a gang lookout. many city leaders supported the mayor's actions and stand by her. so does governor brown. he just responded to this lawsuit news calling it a political stunt. he said at a time of unprecedented political turmoil, jeff sessions has come to california to further divide and polarize america. jeff, these political stunts may be the norm in washington, but they don't work here. sad! a lot of people planning to show up at sessions' event tomorrow including demonstrators. we'll be following it, back to you, jessica. >> of course we invite you to stay with us for continuing coverage.
6:32 pm
we will be streaming attorney general sessions' 8:00 a.m. announcement live on our website on more drama at the white house today. president trump's new proposal about tariffs has pushed his top economic advisor out the door. gary cohn is the latest defection from the trump administration. a goldman sachs executive and registered democrat, cohn threatened to leave before last year but apparently the tariffs were the last straw. during a joint news conference today with sweden's prime minister, president trump stood firm on those tariffs, despite threatened retaliation from the european union. he also insisted russian hacking had no impact on the election results of 2016 and isn't necessarily worried about it continuing. >> because we'll counteract whatever they do. we'll counteract it very strongly. we've actually been working very hard on the '18 election and the '20 election coming up. >> those claims run counter to recent statements from some top intelligence officials and members of congress who say the
6:33 pm
u.s. is not doing enough to combat russian hackers. there's also trouble for another prominent white house aide. long time spokeswoman kellyanne conway may have violated federal law. a federal watchdog says when she publicly promoted republican roy moore in last year's alabama senate race, she violated the hatch act. it bars government officials from using their positions to influence political campaigns. this is now the third time conway has been cited. weeks after the inauguration, she urged the president's supporters to buy ivanka trump's clothing. the watchdog informs the white house and the president will decide if there should be any disciplinary action. a 1-2 punch for the northeast. they're bracing for another major storm. as of right now 200,000 homes and businesses are still without power tonight. now another nor'easter threatening the region, about to bring in snow, high winds and more outages tomorrow to about 60 million people. >> now we're going from what is
6:34 pm
inconvenient to what could be a very dangerous situation. >> it is dangerous for everyone involved there. the winter storm warning stretches from pennsylvania all the way up to new england. san francisco firefighters pleading for congressional help. the firefighters joined crews from all across the county -- country, pardon me, urging lawmakers to help combat cancers plaguing first responders. 15% of firefighters over the age of 40 have been diagnosed with breast cancer, six times the national average. today firefighters from several departments asked senators to invest more money by enacting the cancer registry act for firefighters. the bill already passed the house. >> we need action. firefighters all over the country are in need of action by our elected officials to get these policies, get these amendments, get this stuff moving. >> members of the department are currently working with bay area researchers hoping to produce more concrete answers for
6:35 pm
scientists and for their ranks. well, tonight nbc bay area responds to the rampant financial hardship of medical debt. >> consumer investigator first brought the story to light last week. now he's looking at who's struggling with the problem and how nbc is making a donation that could change a lot of lives. >> as we begin to put medical debt under the microscope, we found some striking reality. consider this, most of the people debt collectors are hounding to pay their medical bills actually have health insurance. it's 62%, according to the kaiser family foundation, which is studying medical debt. kaiser also found that 75% of people who wound up with co-pays, deductibles and coscienc coinsurance ended up costing them more than they could afford. here's a catch-22. say a doctor, lab or hospital takes pity on you and want to help you out, well, they might be prohibited from giving you a discount. the national consumer law center
6:36 pm
found that some insurance company contracts actually forbid doctors' offices and hospitals from waiving or reducing co-pays, deductibles or coinsurance. so nbc is stepping in to highlight this growing problem and is partnering with an organization that can offer immediate help to hundreds of families. our company is making a $150,000 donation to rip medical debt, a new york nonprofit that says it will use our donation to buy and forgive $15.5 million worth of medical debt for people around the country. that will include $1.5 million worth of debt for people right here in the bay area. we can't forgive the debt of specific people because the charity is buying the accounts in bulk from debt collectors. but if your account is part of the batch of $1.5 million in the bay area that rip is buying and for giving, you will get a yellow envelope in the mail that looks like that soon. if you get one, we would love to hear from you, but even if you
6:37 pm
don't want to contact us, please hold on to this letter. that is proof that your debt has been forgiven and the debt collector calls should stop. rip medical accepts donations from members of the public too. we've added a form on our website in case you would like to join nbc and make your own donation. as we suggest with any charity, we encourage you to check out what rip is doing before you donate. if you have a consumer complaint for us, let us know, 888-996-tips or visit >> okay, chris, thank you. san jose city officials are talking about a big debate now. here they come, those tiny homes. the officials are narrowing down the proposed sites of these homes. initially there were three locations being considered. take a look, each would provide up to 40 small spaces for homeless people. today we learned the land near hellier and silicon valley road is no longer on the list. that's sight number two on the
6:38 pm
map there so cross that one out. that's because the land there is zoned for park use only. the city will focus on the other two proposed sites. a stanford researcher revising his study of uber and lyft drivers after it was roundly slammed by both companies. the original study concluded that the median earnings for uber and lyft drivers was less than $4 an hour. the researcher has upped that number close to $10 an hour. he said the problem was in the methodology he used and for drivers in smaller cities. he says those numbers are still accurate. ready to roll. no driver necessary. the only city in the country where you'll soon see self-driving buses right there on the streets, and this city is in the east bay. fan of driverle

the one instance, a man ran across a do not walk signal and smashed a taillight. the other case, a taxi driver caught out and slapped the car's window. new shuttles are about to hit the road in the east bay. no driver needed. the autonomous shuttles, you see them right there, have been given the okay by the dmv to be tested on public roads in san ramon. here they are today. the shuttles are designed to help solve the so-called final mile problem taking passengers between transit stops and their final destinations. this is the first place in the united states where completely driverless vehicles are being road tested. >> but with this technology, we can get it in to serve parts of our community so we're not testing a bright, shiny object, we're trying to test a solution to problems that have plagued us over the years. >> we've got to get out to san ramon. right now they are testing at bishop ranch, a nearly 600-acre office park home to at&t, chevron and ge.

6:46 pm

6:49 pm
latest storm system beginning to move close. right here for the tri-valley 45 degrees. we'll also look at 44 here for the north bay so not nearly as cold as it has been lately with these clouds push on in. 48 in san francisco and in the east bay overcast and 46. throughout the day and tomorrow we will see some sun breaks at times and also have that high overcast with more mild temperatures persisting. it looks like right now we'll see another day of some low 70s. that will put cupertino at 70, san jose at 70 and east san jose at 71. right here throughout the east bay also 70s from concord into danville over to livermore down to fremont and oakland at 65. right through the peninsula, you have 69 in redwood city and over towards the coast a cooler 61. san francisco, no 70s, but you'll get up to 66 here throughout the mission. and right through the north bay, we have 67 in napa and also 65 in mill valley. so it looks like a nice day. again, a little bit weird there with those temps near 70 and
6:50 pm
those clouds at times. we'll hold off on the chance of rain, though, until the evening hours. we're starting to see some showers moving close. not a big storm system, but definitely enough to get those roadways slick. we think by about 8:30 we'll get some rainfall here in the north bay. every single forecast model shows this breaking up in the overnight hours, just keeping some scattered rain in the forecast here for thursday morning. so totals with that wednesday night/thursday system a trace o to 0.37 of an inch. not a big day. spotty rain or friday. a second system on saturday with lingering rainfall into sunday morning. the storm to watch out for would be on monday night into next tuesday. we're looking at a quarter to a half inch. that's the largest chance of rainfall and also some wind moving in. right here across the inland valleys, we have a 70 average tomorrow and then drop it down to 65 there by saturday and 67 on sunday's forecast. so a lot of rain, more just kind of a nuisance on again/off again
6:51 pm
the next few days. if you're heading up to lake tahoe, we're thinking 2 to about 7 inches from thursday into saturday. i think it's manageable. and i think you're going to look great in the snow with it coming down. >> i'll send you pictures. >> yes. we've got to get it on air. you know, in your ski outfit. >> slowly going down the mountain. >> you're athletic, you can do it. that's no big deal for you. >> okay, good. now i feel pumped. >> we're ready to go. >> thank you, jeff. the warriors are about to play one of the worst teams in the league, so how do they get pumped up themselves? we'll have the answer, next. tha

we have one to two fires a day and when you respond together and you put your lives on the line,
6:59 pm
you do have to surround yourself with experts. and for us the expert in gas and electric is pg&e. we run about 2,500/2,800 fire calls a year and on almost every one of those calls pg&e is responding to that call as well. and so when we show up to a fire and pg&e shows up with us it makes a tremendous team during a moment of crisis. i rely on them, the firefighters in this department rely on them, and so we have to practice safety everyday. utilizing pg&e's talent and expertise in that area trains our firefighters on the gas or electric aspect of a fire and when we have an emergency situation we are going to be much more skilled and prepared to mitigate that emergency for all concerned. the things we do every single day that puts ourselves in harm's way, and to have a partner that is so skilled at what they do is indispensable, and i couldn't ask for a better partner.
