percent. that was a bit stronger than july. incomes meanwhile up 4/10ths of a percent. also stronger than in july the biggest gain in incomes in six months and clearly something we need to see as the economy continues to lurch forward between slowdowns and occasional rises. we are getting word from all things d that the next ceo of microsoft could be the current ceo of ford. that may sound like a strange juxtaposition going from a carmaker to a software giant but mulally already did it. he was the top executive at boeing when he moved to detroit and ford and helped lead that company in a turnaround. ford avoiding the big bailouts that general motors and chrysler needed. there are several other candidates at play, as well. but mulally knows microsoft well given his experience in seattle. we snapped a losing session on wall street yesterday. not looking so good today. investors concerned about gridlock in washington and the
impending federal government shutdown. so the numbers are heading south. let's look at the big board right now. dow is dropping about 62 points. nasdaq is down 17. s&p is moving lower by 7 points. microsoft is up 1% on the in lally speculation. michelle and frank, back to you. >> thank you. 6:45. checking traffic now i guess we have a very difficult situation down on the peninsula. >> we are getting more information from the atherton police department on this fatal accident which happened around 5:45 this morning on city streets. so the accident occurred in the eastbound direction of glenwood approaching laurel. but they have shut down several streets in the area and the biggest closure would be middlefield road which is a heavily traveled road on the peninsula. southbound traffic is being shut down at encinal and northbound middlefield closed at this hour approaching oak grove. if you plan to drive to encinal elementary school these closures are close to the school and those roads may be closedded in the next hour or

a beautiful fall weekend especially saturday. should be spectacular. the winds haven't been too bad down below. we have seen some gusts over the mountaintops at over 40 miles per hour but fairly calm into the south bay right now. seeing some east winds at 7 miles per hour into oakland and north-northeast at 7 miles per hour in antioch so not too bad. just a gentle breeze early on this morning. high pressure now settling in overhead. i think those winds calming down toward the weekend. eventually that cold front drops out of the gulf of alaska to bring with it a chance of a few showers. looks like 80s into the central valley for today. about 71 in monterey. if you are flying out of sfo looking good mostly clear skies no delays expected there. around the u.s., though, may have trouble spots if you are heading to houston a possibility of some thunderstorms. could see some rain and thunderstorms into denver about 63. sunny 69 in chicago and 68 and mostly cloudy in new york. around the bay we'll see those temperatures warming up today a lot of 80s into the central valley. 70s inside the bay. and 60s still breezy toward the coastline. a little warmer as we head in towards saturday, cooling off a
few more clouds coming our way on sunday then sunday night into monday, a slight chance of some showers. hey, here's your schoolcast for today. this is for briarwood elementary school in santa clara. for your morning bell, a little cool to start but it's nice and clear about 59 degrees. sunshine for lunch recess. and by the time you get out, oh, going to be feeling good on a friday. 77 degrees sunny and mild. if you would like us to do a forecast for your school, go to kpix.com/schoolcast. we'd love to put your forecast on the air. >> sounds good. >> nothing like a friday. >> anywhere you are. >> we love friday. >> all right, brian. >> hey! >> i'm sorry! i was thinking of bribing hackney. >> sure, elizabeth. >> whatever your name is. whoever you are. all right. lawrence! thank you. [ laughter ] the deadly stabbing every a dodgers fan raises new questions about what police are doing to keep fans said. phil matier live in san francisco with police chief greg suhr and first question out of the gate for you, chief,
what's the very latest on the investigation? >> chief suhr: the suspect has been booked, 21-year-old michael montgomery. and he sits in jail right now awaiting formal charging from the district attorney. >> okay. let's go back a little bit. he is claiming self-defense. at least that's what his father relates to the news. >> okay. >> okay. is that what he told the cops as far as you know? >> well, i can't get into what conversation was in the investigation. but everybody that commits a crime usually has a rationale. >> this is after the ballgame. how close was it to -- were they coming or going from the ballgame or what? >> so one party the dodger group. mr. denver's group had been at the game. the game had been over and they had spend an hour and a half in a local pub. >> so they were away from the
game at a bar and walked six blocks and got into a series of fights. with the same group. they got into two fights with the same group. >> so this was an ongoing thing this went down 3rd street. >> it didn't go far down 3rd street. they traveled quite a distance from the park. almost to harrison street to one of the alleys on the freeway stillman. the group from the nightclub at 3rd and harrison not at the game they get the back and forth between giants and the dodgers because one of the kids in the nightclub was wearing a giants hat. >> how many people do you think in total were involved in this? >> we believe that it was four coming from the nightclub and three that were in the victim's group. >> did everybody run? or did everybody hang around and the police show up? >> once the victim stood up and realized he had been stabbed, the group scattered.
obviously, the victim's family supported him and medical aid was called and the suspects left the scene. >> reporter: how did you catch everybody? >> well, again, we stay in the area quite a bit after the ballgame. officers are regularly deployed and caught them a block and a half away. >> reporter: how did you have them down at the station? he confessed, i understand. >> yeah. we do have an admission. i mean, they -- they had him down there interviewing him quite a long time. >> reporter: how long? >> you know, i don't know at what point in time the admission came. but they interviewed him long enough. >> reporter: this seems to be we're seeing a lot more of this violence whether it's 49ers games or whether it's giants games. >> well, i tell ya, i don't think it's fair to the giants to put this at the ballpark or even really near the ballpark. i think that we have the jumbo rivalry package for police and
the giants out there. everybody is just saddened and appalled that this even happened. it's a game. nobody should ever go to a game. and whether they are six blocks away or 60 feet away, nobody should worry about anything whether it's 10 minutes or two hours after the game. >> that's not the way this society is going these days. >> it's very sad. >> okay. back to you guys. >> phil matier, chief suhr, thank you. coming up on kpix 5, we are continuing to follow the story on the stabbing of a dodgers fan near at that particular time park this morning. we are learning the suspect father says this was in self- defense. ,,,,,,,,
