8:16 pm
different story than what police are saying happened. first thouh.grant lodes is here with how the victim's family is handling this tragedy. tyrone griffin's family is heart-sick.and looking for justice. the 36-year-old from hayward was killed with his young son by his his hometown target. today.we caught up with griffin's family.just a short time before they learned the suspects were charged with murder. jesse archuleta, 25, and frankie archuleta, 22, both of hayward, were arraigned in alameda county superior court in oakland this afternoon for the death of tyrone griffin and are scheduled to return to court on thursday to be assigned attorneys and possibly enter pleas. sot- "i put my condolences out. i really regret the situation that happened -- i wish it never did." you're listening to the voice of 22-year-old frankie archuleta and 25-year-old jesse archuleta's father. the two brothers arrested on suspicion of murdering 36-year- old tyronne griffin. we spoke with mister archuleta at the courthouse in oakland. he doesn't want to share his face or name. but says he feels obligated to come to his sons' defense. sot- "frankie and jesse have been separated since this incident took place and they didn't have time to collaborate a story or anything and they're both telling me the same thing that frankie was attacked. someone got upset because he had his music on." on the night of christmas eve. +
8:17 pm
mister arhculeta says his son's say the incident inside the whipple road target store in hayward happened like this. frankie and jesse were inside when they alledge griffin asked frankie to turn down the music playing on his phone. mister archuleta says griffin and his boys exchanged words. and, then when frankie -- pictured here -- walked away, mister archuleta says his son's allege grffin hit frankie in the head with a champagne bottle pulled from a shelf. sot- "so, you're saying they were provoked. frankie was provoked? that's what both of them are telling me, and they've been separated and they're stories pretty much go with each others." mister archuleta says his son jesse came to his brother's aid, admitting his son had a knife and stabbed griffin who later died. mister arhculeta says his son acted out of self defense and believes surveillance video will vindicate both brothers.
8:18 pm
sot- "i talked to frankie last night, he told me everything that's come out on the news, it dont look good. he goes, everything will come out when they see the videos." in the meantime, the archuleta brothers remain in custody. and, both are due back in court thursday. p neither entered a plea during their arraignment. and, bail is off the table. in oakand, philippe djegal, kron four news. >> steve:new tonight at eight.a popular bay area restaurant closes its doors, without notice. ' pasta pomodoro has 15 locations. employees tell kron 4 they found out about the closure through a text messag. kron 4's charles clifford is live in san bruno at one of the locations. charles.we understand the employees are still waiting to be paid? sot paula employes did not see this coming. >>: here. i got hired right after brian vasquez was a host here at pasta pomodoro in san bruno. he worked last friday and then day after christmas he lost his job in one of the worst ways
8:19 pm
possible. sot i got a text. on monday, pasta pomodoro management informed it's employees via text message that the company had ceased operations, that all employees are now on unpaid furlough, that they should not come to work and that their final paychecks would arrive by friday. when brian came to the restaurant looking for answers he found locked doors and these signs. sot it's like the worst timing for it to close. right after christmas. everyone spent their money. we were just expecting to come back to work after christmas. it appears that all 15 pasta pomodoro locations around the bay area have suffered the same fate, putting hundreds of people out of work during the holidays. it's also unclear why the company has shut down. pasta pomodoro was founded in san francisco in 1994. in 2012, the original owners of the restaurant chain sold it to a private equity firm. we tried to contact pasta pomodoro management by phone and email, but as of late wednesday no one had responded. we also tried to visit an address listed on the company's website, but it turned out to be a post office box in a san bruno shopping mall.
8:20 pm
brian says he's disappointed by losing a good job, but he's trying not to let it get him down. sot i don't want to get to deep into it, i'm just trying to move on. as of wednesday, there has been no mention of the shutdown on pasta pomodoro's website, twitter feed, or numerous facebook pages. president-elect donald trump is claiming another victory tonight.
