6:08 am
was a police officer who shot first and then the rest of the police officers started shooting. >> reporter: police say a handgun was recovered inside the trunk and that two others were arrested uninjured. we saw an officer being treated by a paramedic but officials haven't said what happened. right now the district attorney's office and the homicide division of the police department here in san francisco are investigating this and we expected a town hall meeting to happen within 10 days. from san francisco police headquarters, jackie ward, kpix 5. in 20-16 was linked to a feud between san francisco gangs. we're learning new details about a deadly shooting on highway 4. the killing of a 25- year-old mother in 2016 was linked to a feud between san francisco gangs. the two suspects charged in the case will stand trial. shanique marie was shot several times as investigators say the suspect attempted to kill her passenger, a san

6:14 am
some land in the bay area is sinking! we're talking about large areas of the shorline, including s-f-o, foste the cost of housing may be skyrocketing but a new study says some land in the bay area is sinking. we're talking about large areas of a shoreline including sfo, foster city and treasure island. dramatically increasing the risk of flooding. researchers say that this is because those areas are built on landfill that was not densely compacted. meanwhile other parts of the bay face a lesser risk since they are built on mud that compacts over time. they are sinking only two millimeters a year, about the
6:15 am
thickness of a nickel. this morning, plans to add a third westbound lane on the richmond/san rafael bridge are moving forward. the bay area toll authority's oversight committee has approved a study to see if that extra traffic lane is reasonable and what it would take to make it happen. the cost to do the study, $100,000. >> so that should help traffic in the future but right now how are things? >> over at the richmond/san rafael bridge right now, traffic is light and it remains in the green. it is very early. only 6:15. but you know, for those who commute, that's a big deal. things are looking good. we'll keep our fingers crossed for you but we are having problems along highway 24. an accident that has one lane blocked westbound 24 at acalanes. it's slowing things down. that backup is to 680. getting into walnut creek is going to be sluggish as well
6:16 am
so you have about 25 minutes from 680 over to 580. along 680 as you are heading southbound into walnut creek, that is starting to see those slowdowns even at 24 starting to see a few brake lights. we are still in the green but you will be tapping those brakes as you approach 4. highway 4, this is right as you approach the port chicago highway and headlights moving westbound, we are tracking delays a little east of here and this is all due to an earlier problem that has one lane blocked at that exit lane westbound 4 at willow pass road. so we are definitely seeing the commute pick up. we are in the yellow now out of antioch over to 680. 23 minutes. busy on the bay bridge toll plaza. good morning. so maze some wet roads out there because of what happened overnight but hi-def doppler showing a lot of that moisture is now moved out of the bay area. things are drying up this morning quickly. but overnight showers they have brought a decent amount of the right now we're only
6:17 am
seeing a few areas of light drizzle near santa cruz, watsonville and aptos. santa cruz mountains has lingering showers. showers east of yountville and napa towards vacaville. so right along those hills, there will be a little bit of rain. so don't be surprised if the roads are wet. most of the rain was overnight. a lot of this is winding down. we are seeing some moisture across tahoe and a few clouds but a break in the clouds. expect that sunshine later on this afternoon and look, you can still see pretty slick conditions over at sfo. west mill valley saw more than .6" rain, so definitely across the north bay they got most of the rain which is what we expected between anywhere from a quarter to a half inch for them. kensington three-tenths. hayward a quarter inch. not bad. temperatures also staying warm because of the cloud cover. 53 in oakland. 50 in livermore. 52 in san francisco. normally 30s and 40s for the morning hours.
6:18 am
that's not the case even in santa rosa temperatures stayed in the 40s overnight and upper 40s now. tahoe, truckee, tahoe city, seeing snow flurries. this does give you a good glimpse of what's going on there. partly clear conditions out there and then those dark storm clouds, this is over at the tahoe/truckee airport and definitely also noticing some of the winds flapping around there. the flags flying because the winds are so strong up there. that's a wind advisory through 4:00 throughout the lake tahoe area. they are seeing wave heights two to three feet. so it's going to be impacting mostly tahoe, sunrise officially at 6:30 this morning. sunset tonight 6:10. because we are seeing a break in the clouds, most likely you will get a good view of that this morning. and this afternoon, we'll see sunny conditions. so warmer weather expected later. 66 for oakland. 67 degrees expected for fremont. so today, this afternoon, we are looking at sun and clouds, morning drizzle, and then tomorrow, we are also going to
6:19 am
see a very slight chance of some drizzle. saturday, sunday, we'll get some moisture coming up from the south. that subtropical moisture. so we could get a decent amount saturday afternoon into sunday morning. a break on monday and then bigger storms in store for next week. apple is reportedly planning to release a cheaper version of its "homepod" this year for $100 to $200. the original went on sale in february and cost about $350. facebook is adding video chat to messenger light its android app. it was launched in 2015 to boost usage in developing countries where mobile usage is more costly. it is in over 100 countries including the u.s., facebook adding video chat to the app could be a sign of other new features to come. to mark international women's day, which is today, google will let business owners identify their listings and women-led on the google my business dashboard.
