one person shot and taken to the hospital. an hour and a half later on the 200 block of washington at a nightclub. and 11 p.m. another victim was shot on the 2700 block of favor street and went to the hospital. so detectives don't know if any of these three shootings overnight were related. no arrests, no suspects in any of the cases at this time. but here on the 300 block of broadway the street just re- opened. police have left the scene. >> thank you, sharon chin in oakland. it was a scary wake-up call at a san francisco apartment building this morning. a fire forced 20 people out of their homes. elizabeth wenger is standing by in san francisco's north beach and tells us some people were hurt trying to escape those flames. elizabeth, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. three people were sent to the hospital. we are here on powell street. the fire broke out on powell street between vallejo and green. one fire investigator just arrived back on scene but all the fire engines have left

glorious day here in london. the weather may not hold for the weather on friday but for now tourists are soaking up the excitement and the sunshine. people are coming from near and far to catch a glimpse of history. >> we're very excited to be with this young couple on their special day. >> reporter: with four days to go before prince william and kate middleton say i do, last- minute fine-tuning is under way. everything from the military bands to the carriages are getting the royal treatment. every detail is tightly orchestrated from the flowers on the cake to the seating plan. kate and william's families, including the queen, will have the best seats at westminster abbey. but one thing people are dying to see, the wedding gown is still under wraps. kate middleton is so determined to keep her wedding dress a secret, she reportedly commissioned three separate gowns to preserve the surprise for her prince and the world. >> she has defied the best
6:17 am
efforts of the most experienced newspapers. and you know what our british press are like. >> reporter: we don't know who will be designing the gown but we have a good idea of who won't. vivian westwood said she would love to dress kate but would have to, quote, wait for her to catch up a bit on style. but some styles won't slide. designer caroline cast significant leanne no says a royal bride can't go strapless. >> no cleavage, covered shoulders and covered arms. >> reporter: there is one more well kept secret. the couple will spend the wedding night at buckingham palace, but where they will go on the honeymoon is anyone's guess. now, adding to the intrigue, prince william said the last time he visited australia he wouldn't mind honeymooning there. others suggested maybe the queen's estate in scotland. last week kate was seen buying

6:19 am
americans were and are. you should see the area around buckingham palace. it's like three stages deep or three stages high. most of those are american networks. they have even asked for buckingham palace to keep the lights on at the palace a little longer than 12:30 local time so it hits our evening program. so they are really enjoying the fuss that we're making over them. >> i hear a lot of brits are getting out of town on holiday while this is happening. >> reporter: well, here's the reason. there's been a great big celebration because last friday was "good friday." they have that day off here. today easter monday they had today off, too. so now they have tuesday, wednesday, thursday. if they ask for those days off they get next friday and monday off. that's 11 days for asking for three days off. so thousands of people are taking advantage of that. >> that is some kind holiday. >> but you're sticking around town. that's the good for us. thank you very much, charlie d'agata. >> reporter: i'll be working. >> live in london, yes, covering the royal wedding for us. some showers here in the

6:37 am
good morning. >> reporter: good morning. say a high-tech worker has a great idea, great idea for a startup company and they want to start that business right here in silicon valley. the problem is that person is not a u.s. citizen and before they can start the company they would have to get a visa to stay in the u.s. as a result they could take that great idea to another country and start creating jobs there. that's where this new proposal from senator john kerry comes in. it's sb-565 in the u.s. senate now. it would allow a high-tech worker or any worker for that matter who is a noncitizen to stay in the u.s. if they do a couple of things. they have to raise at least $100,000 from a qualified investor, hire at least 5 workers over two years, and have regular revenue updates from the company. president obama seemed to lend his support to the idea at his facebook town hall meeting last week. >> if we have smart people who want to come here and start

6:44 am
