vehicles behind me. this is the main trade of the company. but the building is very nondescript. the only way could you even tell what kind of a business this is is because of these trucks. they are hidden behind the building. this happened around 11:00 just before midnight and police have not satisfied what the robbers made off with yet if anything. they got a 911 call late last night from two men who were locked inside a secure area of the garda company warehouse. that's the building here on north point road. >> we arrived. we had to free the employees because the doors were locked, secured. and once we freed the employees we found they one harmed and we have our detective crew out here now in the preliminary stages of investigation. >> reporter: now, the men locked inside said the suspects may have been armed. but police have not released any description of these guys yet. they are also trying to figure out what may have been taken
from the building. none of the armored cars was missing. still doing inlower to inside the warehouse. the company does deal with transporting cash and valuables. otherwise, it's in a residential quiet area out here in santa rosa. a lot of holes in the story now. we don't have a suspect description or what if anything these guys took but we'll gather more information and bring you more as it becomes available. >> and those two employees i guess kind of shaken up a little bit but okay, right? >> reporter: i'm sure. but we have not heard from them yet this morning. we know that they were taken down to the police headquarters and they are being interviewed there right now. >> thank you, anne makovec live in santa rosa. the parolee accused of killing an east bay toddler is going to be back in court this morning. we have some shocking witness video of the chaotic scene. this was shortly after this week's shooting. stephanie chuang is in oakland where police are still trying to find yet another suspect.
good morning, stephanie. >> reporter: good morning, grace. well, oakland police here have said they have been working nonstop since monday's deadly shooting that killed a 3-year- old boy. this morning,
26-year-old lawrence denard is actually behind bars at the jail around the corner here. he is facing murder and attempted murder charges. now, police do say they believe he is responsible for the death of young carlos nava. >> oh, my god. they killed that baby, man, they killed that baby. >> reporter: and that's video from a cell phone. a witness started recording it seconds after that drive-by shooting after 64th and international on monday. you can see at first people are focused on those two men who police say were the intended targets allegedly with a rival street gang. they were both shot but they both survived. the one who did not was the innocent 3-year-old carlos nava who was being pushed in a race car stroller by family behind the two men. >> lawrence denard pulled out a
gun, fired at a young child and killed and murdered a young child. that's enough of lawrence denards on the city of oakland. >> reporter: investigators say witnesses including at least one
of the two victims helped to identify denard as the gunman. police arrested him in a pittsburg apartment late tuesday afternoon. the 26-year-old was arraigned on murder charges yesterday. but he insists that he was not involved in the murder. police would not talk about denard really nor about a second man who was also arrested tuesday in connection with the deadly shooting. but they did say that they recovered some handguns though they would not reveal if any of them was the actual murder weapon. now, as you mentioned earlier, investigators are still looking for a third man who they believe was involved who may have been the getaway driver who witnesses also say may have had a gun. he is still on the run although police say they do have some leads. meantime denard is expected in court at about 9:00 this
morning when he may enter a plea. grace? >> all right, stephanie chuang with the latest in oakland. thank you. lawyers for convicted killers yusef bey iv and antoine mackey will ask for a new trial today in the murders of three men in oakland in 2007. they argue that key prosecution witness devaughndre broussard lied on the stand. broussard has admitted killing oakland journalist chauncey bailey on bey's orders. if the motion for a new trial is denied today, broussard is due to be sentenced. a very tough story here am a man lost his wife and future child after his pit bull killed her. greg napora came home from work yesterday, his pit bull standing over his wife's body. the dog was covered in blood. greg forced his 2-year-old dog into the backyard while paramedics tried to save his wife but the 32-year-old died at the scene. and then the pit bull got the
fence open and came down the driveway. >> while we were attending to the victim the dog actually did come out and started to approach the officers and first responders. two officers shot the dog three times and killed it. >> the male pit bull was not neutered. dog experts say that very likely played a big goal in provoking the attack. a necropsy for the dog and an autopsy for the woman are scheduled for today. well, another big day on wall street. investors will be watching this morning's reports on retail sales for signs that the economy is improving. >> one survey finds economists are predicting a 4/10ths of 1% increase last month. world markets are mostly higher today. the exception, japan's nikkei average that closed slightly lower today. on to wall street, the dow climbed more than 400 points yesterday, the fourth consecutive session with a swing of 400 or more. lawrence karnow tells me that the market is going to do very well today because he is not only a weatherman, he's a forecaster! >> oh, man. if i were that good, huh,

50s, as well. sunshine in the beaches, inside the bay mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the 60s and 70s. 80s at santa clara and well inland temperatures into the 80s and low 90s. you have 50 degrees, some of that fog in santa rosa. 57 in the napa valley. 56 degrees and clear in livermore. i think as we head toward the afternoon, sunshine around much of northern california should be beautiful into high country, 82 degrees at lake tahoe, 98 hot in fresno. 91 degrees in sacramento and 56 partly cloudy skies into the monterey bay. high pressure holding on for one day but then it looks like it's going to start to weaken and slide eastward and as it does our temperatures start to cool down so enjoy this today. more sunshine around our skies because the weekend looks a little grayer as we are going to see more low clouds and fog pushing onshore. 80 in santa clara, sunny in mountain view, 61 patchy fog into pacifica. east bay numbers some of the
warmest well into the 80s. 72 san leandro. north bay sunshine latter part of the day should be as high as 79 degrees in napa today. and about 76 in kentfield. things change, low clouds onshore, i think we may begin to pick up more drizzle as we head in towards sunday morning at least along the coastline. and i think dreary days ahead as we head into next monday, tuesday and wednesday especially out towards the beaches. that's weather and here's gianna with the rest of the track. on the maps, a new problem to report a broken-down vehicle second lane from the upper deck around treasure island blocking the slow lane. still light not a big backup. here's live look at the bay
bridge toll plaza, not bad, traffic good approaching the pay gates. and again up the incline just a stalled vehicle on the upper deck. elsewhere a broken-down big rig blocking lanes. this is the westbound side of 580 just as you approach 205. it's causing sluggish conditions towards the altamont pass. right lane blocked, still 15 minutes westbound 580 from the altamont pass to 680. then 680 good. mass transit on trial. bart, ace, muni metro and caltrain all problem-free. later on this week muni will be adding extra service for the 5 fulton and n-judah lines because they are expecting 180,000 people to attend outside lands festival this weekend. today through sunday. closures in effect until sunday night. they started shutting down entrances to golden gate park yesterday about 8:00. so if you are trying to get in and out of the area you will need a ticket. it will be shut down, entrances
to motor traffic. residential parking will be tough. walk, bike or use mass transit again lots of folks expected to attend. so things will be a bit busy through the area. busy as well out of marin county now. southbound 101 slow and go due to ongoing roadwork. hopefully things will wrap up in the next 15 minutes. we are seeing 11 minutes southbound 101 from 37 to 580. here's live look at the golden gate bridge where traffic is looking "friday light" through there. that's a look at your drive. back to you guys. >> thank you. let's take a look at some of the top stories. santa rosa police are looking for robbers who reportedly locked two employees inside an armored car warehouse last night. it's unclear if they were armed or how much money the robbers made off with. tokyo's nikkei average fell a few points today but most other world markets were up. they were hire. just in united states retail sales are up for july, .5% the biggest gain in four months. the u.s. postal service is
