6:33 pm
traveling in berlin. i talked to him by phone. >> the loss of oscar is bad enough. but this certainly adds insult to injury with this tragedy. john suffered so much and now that suffering will be exacerbated by the loss. >> reporter: calwell leaves behind two children and many family members, some of whom we just spoke to, right now their biggest concern, juliette is who did this and why. by the way they say he will be buried next to his best friend oscar grant. >> joe vazquez in hayward. joe, thank you. one person is in the hospital after an officer-involved shooting in san francisco. it happened at 3rd and oakdale about 4:30 p.m. this afternoon. police shot one person. doctors have not released that person's condition. it is not clear why police opened fire. friends and family of a missing nursing student from san mateo spent another day

is old but has been renovated and divided. they are still looking for the cause. back in may an oakland preacher predicted the apocolyps based on his interpretation of the bible. turns out he was wrong. not two months later it was predicted for los angeles based on the weekend long closure of the 405. we are happy to report this dire prediction appears to be wrong begin. we are joined live from los angeles now. one person is quoted as saying it is dead as a door nail out there. what's going on. >> reporter: pretty quiet. best thing that has happened to los angeles traffic in decades. i'll tell you. we drove around all throughout the day and not only is the 405 closed off because of the construction project but they warned people about being on the west side of los angeles and i'll tell you traffic was absolutely amazing. some people are now saying that

carmageddon was this year's y2k. didn't amount to anything. >> the mayor is surveying the area, looking at it all and all is calm, right? >> reporter: all is pretty much calm and after this is all over with there are some people who are probably going to look at the mayor with some bit of criticism because it was him who started this campaign several months ago saying beware of this weekend. it has the potential to be a traffic nightmare he said. he went on a campaign to try to get celebrities to tweet about staying away from the west side of los angeles. now the result of that is most people either got out of town, decided to stay out of the west side of l.a. and a lot of businesses in this area are hurting as a result. >> maybe just the word got out so people were actually trying to take precautions or get out of the area. were there any arrests? people were trying to get on
