and it's wet out. and obviously i think that probably had something to do with it. it's even more of a reason to slow down while you're driving. >> paramedics and cops scrambled to try to get the man loose from under the car, but too late as he died from the scene. police are investigating. but so far right now they don't believe that any crimes were committed. reporting live from vallejo, police headquarters, joe vazquez, cbs5 news tonight. the rain knocked out power to many tonight in san francisco. pg&e crews are working to restore that power right now. police tell us tonight they know who killed a woman after a fender bender in san francisco. warren was with her girlfriend in the parking lot of filma when another car bumped into them. warren got out of the car as there was an argument and one of the guys in the other car shot her. >> she was a sister, a daughter, a coach, a mentor, a
teammate. yes, they'll come together, they'll bond, but there will always be a piece missing. >> police won't identify the suspect as they are still looking for him tonight. you've got to shake your head at this one. a 14-year-old just arrested for holding up an 11-year-old on his way to school. this happened on 19th avenue in oakland. earlier this month the older boy was after the younger boy's cell phone, but settled for $5 instead. and tonight kristin ayers tells us what you won't believe what companies will do to keep your phone from -- from being stolen. >> reporter: even buying tickets for public transportation as thieves will do anything to get their hands on smart phones. >> san francisco is very significant. it's almost 50% with all the
robberies and thefts. >> reporter: the san francisco district attorney along with new york's attorney general say that the solution is a kill switch, which would disable a stolen phone, making it worthless to thieves. but law enforcement sources tell cbs news that when manufacturers like samsung made smart phones with a kill switch earlier this year, the five major wireless carriers, at&t, verizon, t-mobile, sprint, and u.s. cellar would not -- cellular would not sell it. the executive involved in the negotiations tells samsung that they received responses from all five major u.s. carriers. and they've all denied our preload in their image. meaning the major carriers refuse to sell a smart phone with a free kill switch built in. they suspect that's because it would cut into big profits the phone companies make selling anti-theft insurance and
replacement phones. >> we're talking about a $16 billion a year industry. and about half of that seems to be attached to the replacement of phones being stolen. so we're talking about a lot of money here. >> reporter: the wireless association, which represents the service providers said that they are working on alternatives to a kill switch, including a data base to prevent stolen phones from being reactivated. in oakland, kristin ayers, cbs5. protesters are turning streets and restaurants and bars into this. they spent an hour and a half in front of the station on vallencia to protest what they say is police brutality. officers were in riot gear, but they say there was no problem. this is what they are angry about. that police used excessive force for arresting d.j. williams after riding his bike on friday. it shows williams on the ground and orlando rodriguez admits he got too close to the action.

half off. yours for $500. the gop chair says that the president's image is a bit dented from recent scandals, like the obama care rollout and eavesdropping on world leaders. >> the october fundraising for the democrats and their level was actually very good. i think there's a difference now though when it is president obama raising money. right now he's not that popular, obama care is not that popular. they're doing well in other profits. >> reporter: the approval rating is at an all-time low even spoofed about anti- depressants. >> ask your doctors for the second-term strength. >> reporter: but democrats content that the president's loyal bay area based isn't running for others, and the problem lies with the larger venue. >> they expanded the seating arrangements and where people can come and support the presentation. and so at least according to them, that's what's going on.
>> reporter: think about this for a second. the justin timberlake concert expected to happen in january, the v.i.p. tickets that are $1,500 are already sold out. >> so things haven't been going great for the president lately. approval ratings way down. democratic national committees, the registration, advisors, anyone worry about this right now? >> not really. they say that wednesday will be the test. they believe that they could sell out the event, which remains to be seen as we have a few days to check it out. >> but they are still pretty confident? >> yes, still pretty confident. >> all right, thank you for that. that didn't last long. toronto mayor's tv show was canceled after just one episode. >> i have not had a drop of alcohol in three weeks. not a drop. >> none, zero. >> he is saying that now after admitting to smoking crack and being caught on video, they

if you want to protect your, get a double barrel shotgun a vice president's advice might be coming back to haunt him. if you want to protect yourself, get a double barrel shotgun. if there is ever a problem here, just walk out, put that double barrel shotgun and fire two blasts. >> well they say that biden should apologize to them after being arrested for doing just that. back in july, he was charged with illegally discharging a firearm. he did it to scare off three men that were trying to break into the car. >> well vice president biden was right about scaring off intruders. i'm out over $10,000 for following his professional advice. >> he now wears a t-shirt that says joe biden owes me. his case is scheduled to go to trial next year.
also tonight the nra is suing san francisco as their banned holding more than 10 rounds of ammo is unconstitutional. san francisco's city attorney says that he will be defending what he calls gun safety laws that protect lives. the bay area has been a tough place to legally carry a concealed loaded gun. but kristin ayers found out that's changing, especially in one county. >> you wouldn't know if if they passed you by, but they're packing heat as they finally got a concealed weapons permit this year. >> it makes you feel like everybody knows they have it. >> the timing was right. >> to pick up the magazine. >> reporter: they offer the so- called cpw training in their firearms school. it's a 16-hour course covering everything from the gun safety to the legal dos and don'ts of actually firing. they say for years that all the training still couldn't get you a permit.
because you still had to prove good cause. >> personal safety will never be a reason for the position. >> after the grand jury found the solano county sheriff may have had an informal policy of denying access and/or discouraging applicants. >> the number of people applying for new sealed permits have skyrocketed. from 27 until 2011 to 254 so far this year. a similar scenario played out in sacramento county. and after the gun rights group filed a lawsuit over the same issue. the county went from issuing 95 permits in 2009 to 727 in 2013. in the nine county bay area, the numbers are all over the charts. san francisco, for instance has not issued a single ccw permit in years. lorin county only has nine

taken. >> she was the same age i was when she was kidnapped. you know thinking of her having grown up like that, you know, of course i have to wonder where she is. you know, if she has children herself. >> although she has never been found, her mom still holds out hope that she will one day come home. there are signs that women's influence in the tech world is improving. yahoo's marissa meyers and facebook's michelle saunders are being recognized. recently more women have been getting hired in the past year. 36,000 women were hired for tech jobs compared to just 24,000 men. and that will be for the tech work force. also tonight, they show us the bay area toy company that will have a cool new video to get young girls to trade in their dolls for hammers.
