the head. >> at one point, the subject finally emerged and pointed the weapon in a threatening manner. at one point, pointed the weapon toward the officers. at that point, two officers fired at least one round from rifles from across the street striking the subject. >> the officers are on routine administrative leave. they were not wearing body cameras. did you hear a lot of illegal fireworks in your neighborhood last night? you were not alone, especially if you live in oakland. the fireworks were not just loud, but dangerous. christin ayers talked to one woman who had a close call when her front yard went up in flames. >> reporter: police were supposed to crack down on the illegal fireworks but only made a couple dozen seizures. all across the east bay, the skies lit up with illegal
fireworks. in a noisy fiery ritual that johnny has come to expect. >> you start hearing these loud booms. and sometimes, they are like these sounds. >> reporter: last night was no exception. >> it sounded like a war zone. >> reporter: this time, the fireworks show turned dangerous. dorothy oakley was inside her home with her daughter when a neighbor saw a man launch a fire cracker in her tree and left her windows crashed and blinds melted. as for the crackdown, she didn't see one. even as police surrounded her home, the illegal fire works shows continued. >> the cops say well there's just too many of them. we are overwhelmed. and we cannot do anything. >> reporter: oakland police did do something last night.
they found a u-haul full of fireworks at this intersection in east oakland, but that was one of only 26 seizures last night. neighbors say they have lost hope. >> we just kind of live with it. you know. you just sort of look around, make sure it is not being launched your way. [ laughter ] >> reporter: in oakland, christin ayers, kpix5. >> well, two people were hurt by fireworks in san jose last night. police received 29 calls for illegal displays. and gave out 12 citations. tonight, we learned of another self-driving crash involving a tesla. this time in pennsylvania. the model x smashed into a guardrail and rolled over. both men survived inside. just one day before the safety administration issued a report about a crash back in may involving a tesla on auto pilot in florida. that driver who posted videos of his tesla on youtube died.
tesla stock was down almost 3% after the company announced it missed production forecast for the second quarter but they rebounded closing at $213. >> no charges are appropriate in this case. the fbi said today that hillary clinton was careless, but she did not commit a crime. after a yearlong investigation, clinton is cleared tonight of any wrong doing for her e-mail scandal. but, as veronica de la cruz shows us, she's still got a pretty good scolding from the director. >> reporter: that's absolutely right. the presumptive democratic presidential nominee did not handle classified information properly. hours later, president obama hit the campaign trail to sing her praises. >> our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. >> reporter: he called it extremely careless, but did
said she was not motivated by disloyalty to the u.s. >> we can in the find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts. >> reporter: still, he gave a scathing assessment of her decision to use her private e- mail server as secretary of state. >> any reasonable person in secretary clinton's position or in the position of those with whom she was corresponding about those matters should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that conversation. >> reporter: comey said it is also possible hackers gained access to the e-mails. still, it was a political victory for e-mail who stumped with president obama for the first time today. >> thank you so much! >> reporter: speaking in charlotte, north carolina, both avoided any mention of the fbi announcement. >> hillary doesn't get the credit she deserves.
but, the fact is, hillary is steady and hillary is true. >> reporter: now tonight, donald trump came out swinging at the fbi. the presumptive gop nominee said we have a rigged system. >> our enemies may have a blackmail file on crooked hillary and this alone means that she should not be allowed to serve as president of the united states. >> the fbi's recommendation not to charge clinton could mean case closed. attorney general loretta lynch has said that she would accept these findings. >> all right, thanks veronica. we might see some changes the next time you drive across the golden gate bridge. they are tweaking the lane configurations agains. four northbound lanes will be open half an hour from 4:00 to 4:30 tuesday through friday. they used to be open until 5:00, but that caused major backups southbound when the lanes were squeezed down to

undercrossings. squirrels are known the use rope and baseball bridges to cross the busy roadways. kathy of sunnyvale says she is not surprised because highway 280 is always so busy. >> i think it happens mostly at night because it is so dark out here. the animals are trying to cross and all of a sudden there's a car there. >> reporter: northern california sals home to the other road kill hot spots and that is i-80 between davis and sacramento. in palo alto, len ramirez, kpix5. thieves have found a new way to steal cars. we will explain how crooks are using laptops to rip off your ride. >> and, this cracked bay area sidewalk is all patched up now. you would think that is a good thing. tonight, why the city admits it made a big mistake and it has to do with the hayward fault. >> plus, tonight, we will show you the bay area's newest hot spot for whale watching.

computer. >> it is surprising. very surprising. yes. >> reporter: the national insurance crime bureau says they are seeing more reports of this type of car theft and believe this is becoming the new way of stealing cars. security experts say hackers are connecting to a car's data port and are getting away with this because cars are beginning to build in 4g connections. a lot of them have their own operating systems. some of them get updated over the air. we got reaction from people who owned cars that would be vulnerable. >> i don't know what precautions i could take at this moment. >> i make sure there is nothing imperative and important in there for me. so if it gets stolen or if something isn't there, it is replaceable. >> i don't feel any more worried than if they had been able to break in old school with a key or however they did that. either way i lose my car. >> reporter: in studio city, rachel kim, kpix5. tonight, an emeryville driver is convicted of killing
