that woman able to xscape now that evening the gunman came out of the house and fired a shotgun at members of the swat team, you know that 3 of them were hit, we know that 2 of them in the hospital, the deputies returned fire they hit and killed that man. now 2 of the deputies like i mentioned we're still waiting to hear word on their status after being taken to the hospital and since this was a deputy involved shooting there are multiple agencies that are still investigating this for now reporting here in contra costa county reyna harvey kron 4 news. >>all right, thank you very much random. >>6 o one right now and get a look at the weather and get ready for the heat. >>john yeah, it is going to be a hot weekend even hotter than we've been so far this week temperatures only climbing in the days ahead of us today other than yesterday tomorrow little hotter than today. and then sunday even hotter, yeah, a little bit of fog heading out into the bay right now
from suture tower can see the bay right there in the distance. some of those spots of fog that are sitting over the east bay too. this is keeping temperatures a little cooler for coastal areas this morning. well our inland areas are actually already off to a pretty warm start with uppers 60's unconquered low 70's in pittsburgh compare that to the low 50's in san francisco in pacifica mid 50's right now in oakland. later today, temperatures out the coast will remain nice and cool well inland, nothing cool about it highs into the mid 90's for inland valleys with upper 70's to low 80's. right along the bay back to you. thanks a lot john. >>starting today it's expected sonoma county is going to be on the states watch list for coronavirus because of an increase kron four's will tran is live in petaluma with what that means to me and you will. >>that means that if you want to go indoors to the restaurants, the tasting rooms to the bars that will not happen because they are rolling that back because the
case is not only slightly went up the area and has exploded over the past month or so in fact let me draw your attention to the screen. this is always been a numbers game, especially when you're talking about coronavirus just to give you texture on the state's decision to roll back some of the opening of the bars and the restaurants look at this so since this whole thing started last month when they started tracking a 2 week. span early june, they're sitting at 20 cases for every 100,000 residents that is super because the benchmark is at 100 for 100,000 they were well below that as of today, they're sitting at 111 cases for 100,000 people it has gone up 5 times in 5 weeks in fact they had 42 cases just yesterday and since the pandemic started 14 people have died and sonoma county since june 28th, 9 of those 14
have died so the cases are just exploding in sonoma county and they want to get those numbers down because they don't want the hospitals to simply be overrun with coronavirus patients a lot of businesses of course they were hurting during the shelter-in-place they were so happy when the state started to loosen his grip on some of the guidelines allowing people to go back in and dine inside a restaurant is going to taste the rooms tasting rooms. but now that is not happening because we've been told for many weeks now that inside is more much more dangerous then outside but that might be the case but that's not good news to restaurant owners. >>pretty rough i think technically 3 months but felt like 5 years. but we're excited, you know to get out of it and. you know now we're kind of staying in the world to know if can see it's been it's been really hard just to just to kind of window through the the various bits of
information to figure out. >>what you actually pull that really how you react are going in there as long as we can as long as we can stay open. we'll we'll keep keep as many people as we can. >>so they will try their best it doesn't mean that the restaurants are shut down you can still do take-out they have outdoor eating patios and that's still available to you of course that will make it harder to get a reservation because now maybe only half of the restaurant is available to the public. this is a 3 week window just like we did in napa county yesterday when i was there to report that they will monitor the situation for the next 3 weeks as far as the guidelines at this particular point again they're just making sure that the hospitals are not overrun. but while they're on this watch list aria they are talking about many things might be hard to enforce but one of the things that they're bouncing around as far as discussion. possible enforcement of masks in may be levying fines for those who are not wearing the mask when they can not ab social
distance back to you and just what you said that. >>and a kid behind you was skateboarding wear the mask on nobody was around him and he still had the mass which is awesome that's what it's going to take will. >>that's right. i mean this face a doctor fauci is talked about this if a lot of people of all of us wore masks when we can not social distance. this thing would be a lot better than what it is of course a lot of people have politicized did but isn't on the county there. it sounds like they're tough they're done with politicizing it so they are bouncing around the idea that possible enforcement that's just extra duty, 4 police officers out there, but they say they got to get the numbers down you don't want to overrun the hospitals we have to do something all right. thanks a lot. well. >>california texas florida, arizona. and now experiencing surges of infections could have gone up to 30,040 50 and most recently a total of 60,000 new cases per day we
need to get our arms around that stephen we need to do something about it quickly because if we don't is a possibility. we may be seeing surgeons and other area. >>well we'll just mention doctor fauci there you saw the nation's top infectious disease expert, and there was with a new warning calling out california for its surge in covid-19 cases and now our cities and counties could be forced to reinstate stay at home orders once again offers gayle ong has more reaction from local doctors. >>all of us are going in the wrong direction and so clearly we've got to scale back what we've been doing and be less open than we were but we're not at the place where we need everybody to stay at home just yet los angeles mayor eric garcetti says the city could reinstate a stay at home and 8 of the city says more cases we asked doctor robert wachter of ucsf how the bay area measures up with the state. it would have to be really bad for that much worse than we are in california is bad the bay area
