me. this is off of laura valle lane in san jose's willow glen neighborhood. they have been here all night collecting evidence. what we do know is there were shots being fired around 9:00 last night. that's why police were originally called to this scene and when they got here, they got into a short standoff with a man and shot him killing him. and then and then when they enters the home he had come from they found two people dead inside. so we have three people have been killed here in the neighborhood, one by police the other two presumably by the man that they shot and killed. but this is still under investigation this morning. the officer who fired the fatal shot that the one man is on paid administrative leave and this is all being looked into by the san jose pd and the city attorney's office. live in san jose, anne makevoc, kpix 5. a subway sandwich restaurant in san francisco was closed for business following

[ beep ] >> supervisor jeff sheehy says people in his district are calling him every day asking what is being done. today he along with other supervisors will be asking various law enforcement agencies what resources they are using and how much it's costing to get people off the streets. >> if you have law enforcement constantly going to move homeless from one spot to another, then you're not going to be able to get -- you're not going to have the ability to actually deal with real crime. [ beep ] >> sheehy believes that
5:07 am
increased homelessness directly ties into property crimes like car break-ins and thefts. according to data from the san diego overall, property crimes fell 11% last year and car break-ins were down, as well.

5:08 am
upgrades. the work begins in mid-may when crews will be out here. you can see the renters. the blue area is the section they will be working on. essentially they are redesigning the layout so traffic can flow in and out of the station easily. crews will be working on the drop-off area. they will be putting in new pavement, more parking for motorcycles and more parking for ada-compliant vehicles. plus bart officials say the upgrades will include rain gardens. those gardens will capture storm runoff. and due to all the changes in the layout, the station will lose some fee parking about two dozen spaces. so what does this mean if you have to park here at lafayette station? basically, the two stations at the entrance near deer hill road, those are going to have some staggered closures over the next months while they complete the upgrades. i'm jessica flores, kpix 5. time check 5:08. a group of bay area students takes on the best and the

[ foghorn ] >> the fog is making a comeback. now, we could see the very tip- top of the tower there.

5:35 am
lying, trying to slip into the bay this morning. it reflects a cooling trend. it's 49 in santa rosa, this time yesterday morning in the 60s. the cooler air mass hasn't made it into the tri-valley, in the 60s, same in san jose. 50s redwood city. san francisco and oakland also in the 50s. so that onshore push is now blowing in 11 and 10-mile-per- hour winds sfo in san francisco. yet to move into the tri- valley. east-southeast wind in napa. these winds will rotate to the west later today and that's when the cooling will begin in our inland areas. but it's here. that bank of low clouds and fog, temperature-wise average high san francisco 64. 65 is the forecast high today down from 82 yesterday. a string of 60s will be common around the seashore. 70s and 80s around the peninsula. we jump up to the low and mid- 80s across the santa clara valley. then we drift into the eastern portion of our bay area where we tumble out of the mid-90s from yesterday. it was 96 in discovery bay.
5:36 am
it was also in the mid-90s in brentwood. a good 10-degree drop today. you will feel the difference. low 80s in pleasanton down from 95 degrees. 60s and 70s common in the north bay. santa rosa at 75. 77 in sonoma with a west wind 10 to 15. and then 70s to the mid-80s in lakeport and clearlake all throughout lake county. we're going to talk about the weekend and the big changes you'll need to know about that. that's coming up at 48 after the hour. let's send it to jaclyn. thanks, roberta. right now we are tracking a couple of problems on our bridges. we'll take it to san mateo first. we have some pallets reported to be in the lanes in the westbound direction. live look you can see the taillights are heading westbound out of hayward into foster city. 16 minutes in the green but it's getting crowded. things are slowing down a bit so you'll be in good company if you are making your way along that stretch. you'll be dealing with fog heading across the golden gate bridge. headlights making their way southbound. no delays but please, take it easy as you get behind the
5:37 am
wheel. over at the bay bridge toll plaza, not dealing with much fog but you're definitely dealing with a lot of traffic. we have those metering lights that's just turned on and traffic is starting to back up towards the 880 overcrossing. hat's a check of your traffic; over to you. thank you. an east bay bart station will be seeing construction work over the next couple of weeks. something officials say is long overdue. kpix 5's jessica flores is live at the lafayette bart station to explain the changes. >> reporter: this station is 47 years old, michelle. there's some cracked pavement. officials say that the parking layout isn't great. they say it needs major upgrades. crews will begin working on these upgrades mid-may so still about a week away. you can see in the renderings the blue area is the section they will be working on. essentially, they are redesigning the layout so traffic can easily flow in and out of the station. crews will be working on the
5:38 am
drop-off area. they will be putting in new pavement. more parking for motorcycles and more parking spaces for ada-compliant vehicles. and due to the change in layout, the station will lose some parking about 2 dozen spaces. >> i don't think there's a problem with that parking lot. it's easy to get in and out of here. only thing -- i'm here early, but i wish that maybe there would have been another -- a garage here because i have friends that if you're not here by 8:15, those lots fill up. so space is about the only thing. but getting in and out, it's good. >> reporter: bart officials say the upgrades will include rain gardens that capture storm runoff. all of these upgrades will have an impact if you do park here at the station. the two parking lots and the entrance near deer hill road are going to have some staggering closures over the next eight months. that's how long it will take crews to finish all of these
5:39 am
upgrades. reporting live in lafayette, i'm jessica flores, kpix 5. all right. we should know within a week whether or not uber's self- driving car program will get temporarily shut down. google's company "waymo" is suing uber. yesterday's court hearing in san francisco, "waymo's" lawyers claim that uber orchestrated a plan to steal "waymo's" self-driving car technology. "waymo" claims that its former employee anthony lewandowski was hired by uber to help the company steal trade secrets. he allegedly stole thousands of documents before he started a new self-driving startup for uber. uber denies it say there's no evidence that any stolen filed touched uber's services. if the judge rules in favor of "waymo," uber could be forced to remove self-driving cars from the roads. tomorrow the government is set to release data on the jobs market for april. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger breaks down why the employment market could finally
5:40 am
be shifting in favor of job seekers. so jill, what's expected tomorrow? >> reporter: we are looking for about 185,000 jobs in april. that's up from the weaker-than- expected 98,000 in march. unemployment will go up 4.6%. economists say it's beginning to look more like a job seeker's market for everyone not just software engineers. the paid premium for switching jobs is nearing an eight-year high over 4%. high performers could get close to 5%. that's better than the 3% increase for workers who don't change jobs. i know it sometimes seems scary to take the plunge especially if you have been somewhere for a while but when senior level people leave a job for a pay raise it can be more significant 10% according to job search site glass door. >> it's basic economic theory. risk leads to reward. so jill, any tips for would-be job seekers? >> there are a few new apps you
5:41 am
might want to check out. job scan. that allows you to tailor your resume' to postings by identifying keywords. one pairs you with a hiring manager linkedin's open candidate setting broadcast to your network but not your employer that you're on the market. now, if you are staying put and maybe time to ask for a raise, use a range rather than a single number to increase your total. the number at the bottom end, that should be equivalent to the one you would have used as a single dollar offer. the upper end of the range, that should be about 20% higher. so look, if you want a $50,000 salary, you go to your boss and you say, how about a 50 to $60,000 range? good luck. we are seeing a tightening labor market. so this should be a good time for you. >> you'll never get it if you don't ask, right? >> that's right. >> exactly. all right, cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger, thank
