on both sides. >> but that accident, the hospital been covering all morning, 80 eastbound at the embarcadero and that backup is a long one. oh, one passover avenue. we're actually showing you a shot. this is on 6th street. you can see how backed the traffic is right here slowly moving along. the good news is they have all lanes open right now. however, you're still seeing delays and you're going to see reserve residual delays for some time. we're going to go back to the maps like to see just how far that backup goes past the 1, 1, to 80 connector on down past a silver avenue there. so again, that's not the only issues we're seeing the westbound side certainly slow for us heading to that fremont street exit a little under 23 minutes for your drive time. and if people decided they were going to go ahead and take the san mateo bridge. we're also seeing some delays along here 23 minutes. if you make it across towards the peninsula. the richmond sandra fell bridge has an escape that slow down as well. 13 minutes for your drive time as you're heading out of richmond. we have another hot spot to tell

calmly bring mister gonzales into a safe situation. they tried for 3 full minutes to handcuff him all standing up. they did not want to have to take him to the ground. a close examination of the video reveals that the actually have their body weight on their heels or on the there such that's really in essence they re seeing mister gonzales. >> all 3 officers are on administrative paid leave pending the outcome. all of these investigations. >> well, south bay, criminal defense attorney, though, says that the alameda police department description of gonzales. his death is a medical emergency may technically be true. but he believes that the police used excessive unreasonable and unnecessary force rough forcefully to call has that side of the story. >> south bay criminal defense attorney cody soften of the south in law firm says the alameda police departments description of 26 year-old mario gonzalez is in custody.
death as a medical emergency may be but south and says the emergency was caused by the officers involved who he unreasonable and unnecessary we had 2 or more calls for service. we have citizen calling in. >> more as a matter of concern for the individual. then a matter of public safety >> i was on southend says eric mckinley in first officer to arrive at the park on oak street the morning of april 19th initially showed restraint. but eventually lost patients with gonzalez. 911, callers reported was likely an armed, though he appeared intoxicated may have just committed a theft. these officers and the most powerful tool that they have in their possession or at their will is their ability to talk someone down verbally de-escalate, a situation. >> and these officers very quickly escalated to the
physical use of force which is absolutely unnecessary. they had time. they had distance. they had the benefit of not being in a crowd, an area where there's there would be a public safety risk wraps of people were close and they could mister gonzalez. they could see that he didn't have a weapon and all they needed to do was to give it time and to talk mister gonzalez down or trying to figure out what was going on south and has successfully settled federal civil rights cases of police misconduct. most recently with the city of palo alto and its police department. at least one officer in that case has been criminally charged south and the leaves the offices in mario gonzalez's should be prosecuted as well. but for the police actually coming to the scene. >> mister gonzalez probably would have just gone on his way and he absolutely would have been alive. still today and that's a pretty good indication that police used excessive unreasonable and unnecessary force when but for their actions, someone would still be living and no, no one
from the general public would have been injured for. now the 3 officers involved are on paid administrative leave. >> well, multiple investigations gonzalez's death are conducted. >> phillipe djegal all kron 4 news. >> well, happening today, daly city police are expected to release the names of the officers involved in that fatal shooting of roger allen that shooting happened back on april 7th near unit presser boulevard and westlake avenue. police say officers walked up to a parked pickup truck that had a damaged rear tire the driver cooperated fine with police. it was the passenger in the truck. roger allen who appeared to have a gun in his lap, though that gun turned out to be fake. police say he grabbed for it and officers at that point tried to disarm him. and during that struggle, another officer fired a shot hitting allen in the chest. allen later died at the hospital. >> and east bay oakland police say they're stepping up their efforts to reduce gun violence to oakland police captain tell the facebook live event talk

air passover avenue as a result of that crash. so you're going to see delays as you're traveling from the city into the east bay because that accident that is now clear heading into the city are also seeing delays as well. a little under 20 minutes to make it to that free much exit from the maze. and we're pretty backed up past emeryville at this point. also look at the san mateo bridge, 17 minutes. so that's been pretty slow delays there. more people are trying to take that bridge a new traffic collision to tell you about that is now clear at this moment. however, really bad residual delays from this one. this is out in sandra fell one. oh, one southbound at manual. t freed is parkway and not the only hot spot there that wanted. hey, we've been talking about closed east 14th on off-ramp. so it's pretty slow along to 38. we'll have more on that coming up. but for now, daryn else and it over to you. >> i can guarantee that anybody in the world will be alive sunday. so i can't guarantee it will be on a roster on sunday. >> so that goes for all of us.
>> don. don, don. wow. talk about a cliffhanger if any of us can manage to stay alive until 5 o'clock today. >> we'll actually find out which of these eligible bachelors will be the forty-niners newest quarterback. it's the most wagered up on draft pick of all time. but before you call your, kate rooney takes a look at the horse race. >> the rumor mill has been swirling like never before around the forty-niners coveted draft pick could ohio state quarterback justin fields be the guy. the 6, 3, 223 potnd gunslinger was the back to back. big 10 offensive player of the year and led the buckeyes to a national championship game fields is said to have all the tools arm strength, deep ball accuracy and mobility. his high school coach matt dickman says justin has what it takes to be an nfl star. we're going to get an outstanding person. >> that's going to be a great we know how talented he is. he can run to his left thumb. and
you know, and is right right he's really create plan actual quarterbacks. i really don't know how he does it fit with the forty-niners. another guy that has risen to the top of the list is north dakota state's trey lance. his play helped the bisons won the 2019 fcs national championship. >> the 6, 4, 224 pound signal-callers athleticism arm strength and decision-making stand out, though some have concerns about his accuracy. >> his high school coach terry bahlmann says lance's talents and maturity will lead him to success. 6, 4, to 25 runs a 4, 4, 40. it's got a cannon actual all all the physical skills are. >> are there and you're going to get a great citizen, great role model. these can be face of the franchise you want is going to be the hardest worker finally alabama's mac jones has long been in the conversation, the 6 to 217 pound qb put up huge numbers will leading the crimson tide to another national title. >> jones tout strong decision-making is excellent at reading defenses and
processing. >> the we doesn't have the strongest arm in his class. one of his high school coaches. kevin fagan has no doubts jones will excel at the next level is the mayor growing up and his work ethic. he works as hard. anybody ever work that we've got around it just competitive edge >> mark knowledge of the game along with, you know, the physical arm is very good them in row road as well as the rest of inmates ruin and popular highland hills kron 4 sports tariq island, not cape. that's highland. but what about this guy? where does that leave jimmy garoppolo. >> he still has its good looks and 50 million bucks to fall back on our resident football expert will tran is live at levi stadium will because you're an expert. your guess is better than mine. so just take a guess. >> i think jimmy g will make it through. tonight. the reason being it's hard to find a suitor for him because the q bees have already been picked up. the colts picked up carson
wentz and his bat contract. we're talking 51 million dollars for the next 2 years. that is still there and let's face it, the reason why they're even dropping a quarterback because of injuries in 64 games with the niners he's only played 31 games and the one full season that he did played area. he took them to the super bowl. one out of 4 seasons. so, you know, they always say your best ability is availability. he's not available. your best ability is your availability. >> everybody says that right. he show up to me at the very least you're at work. they're not showing up at work. so i he's not playing. he's you in need. might as well be you and me. but he has a bigger thank you. yeah, it is. but sit on the sideline cost a lot more. but of all right. so you're not gonna take a guess on which is 3 guys in the draft. you're not going to you're going to get a wager. i think
it's going to be trey lance. they will go with him. but i promise you check this out. if. >> zach wilson, what byu is not picked with number 2 and he's not locked in a number 2. if he is not pick that number to get the forty-niners will get sacked will. okay. so i think now you're going throw the no one into which we thought were done deals in thing. >> will. well, it's a guessing game with only difference is those guys spent a month and a half just yakking without knowing so why can i add my near the bottom line is they don't know either case. it. there was a guy we drafted in the 3rd round walsh really leaders place kicker. not a wrestler and they call us. we just play them joe montana ok, all these guys. i know you never know. you. >> the low dress can be wonderful. high dress can be a bus. okay. we'll stay tuned. we only have to wait another unknown 8 hours or so. thank you. will.
