6:32 am
bottleneck on 680 even though some cars are getting through it isn't adequate for this time of the morning. you need to give yourself extra time. people are on highway 84 as well. a lot of the pleasanton city streets are also jammed up as people have figured out i'm going to try the other road. not exactly an original idea. you need to give yourself extra time. this is a fatal happened that happened just before 4:00 a.m. that involved a pedestrian. and again it's all down to one lane. we have heard they could open the road by 7:00 but the traffic will take much longer than that to clear out. let's go back to the desk. we also have new developments from hayward in a police shooting we've been talking about since 4:30 this morning. you've been talking with police so what do you know now tara? >> reporter: this was a deadly shooting. confrontation between three officers and a suspect if you take a look behind me you can see the gas station right here.
6:33 am
and where that little orange thing is the car next to it is actually the suspects car. you can see it's completely riddled with bullet holes. we believe inside the orange barriers are where the body is of the suspect. now all three officers are okay. we just spoke to police. we are near tennison road and mission boulevard. police say gunfire first started around the corner from here at the bar called the dirty bird lounge. witnesses say the suspect got into a fight inside the bar and shot someone. that victim was take ton the hospital with a nonlife threatening gunshot wound. and then police were able to track down the man. >> officers saw the vehicle and got behind it in preparation to make contact with the driver. when they did, the driver reversed his vehicle quickly at the officers. the officers feared for their safety and responded in order to stop his actions. >> reporter: so the officer shot and killed the suspect.
6:34 am
all three are on paid administrative leave. this intersection here near mission and tennison will be shut down for much of the morning as police continue to gather evidence and investigate. if you're trying to get on bart this morning south hayward you will not be able to access it through tennison road. you will need to go down through industrial parkway and shoot up north toward dixon. this entire area is blocked off. there is swarms of police cars all around here and half a mile down the road as well. off mission at the dirty bird lounge. live in hayward i'm tara moriarty. we are continuing to track a fatal crash on 680 in pleasanton. that has been backing up traffic all morning long. ktvu channel 2 reporter allie rasmus is there where authorities are in the process of reopening all of the lanes. so hopefully better new there is. >> reporter: that is right. chp has opened all southbound lanes of interstate 680 which is why we have moved away from
6:35 am
where this accident scene happened. you can see the traffic making its way. it's flowing a lot better now. of course this morning it was at a complete standstill while chp was clearing this accident scene. investigators don't know why this pedestrian ended up on the freeway. they think he wandered -- wondered on to 680 and that is where the man was struck by an on coming car. it happened at 4:00 this morning. an hour ago chp opened the far left shoulder of this stretch of highway so traffic was no longer at a complete standstill. there is still a lot of residual traffic problems because of this accident that happened this morning. chp investigators are still trying to determine if it was one or multiple cars that hit the male victim. it's not considered a hit and run. the main driver involved did stop. someone called chp. that driver was interviewed for quite some time. for about an hour and a half all four lanes of southbound
6:36 am
680 were completely closed to traffic as chp processed the accident scene. the backup expanded almost to the al cost that exit. the big question to investigators why this man was on the freeway. >> we have no idea why this person was out here. we'll have to contact the family and find out. >> reporter: do you know who the person is >> it's still under investigation. the coroner just got here. he'll probably help us out. >> reporter: the coroner came and went and so now the accident scene has been cleared. you can see traffic moving on southbound interstate 680. for awhile chp was detouring traffic around this area. people were taking 580 westbound exiting foothill road and going through some of the surface streets to get around the accident. but because of all the dietaries and because of this earlier backup l is still a lot backup, there -- backup there is a lot of traffic problems.
6:37 am

6:38 am
of an epa investigation that will look at whether this conduct was intentional or negligent. >> chevron says the pipe was for balancing pressure but regulators did not buy that explanation they fined the company $170,000. the epa investigation is not related to last months refinery fire. time is 6:37. students in santa clara montague elementary school are getting letters from school to take home after their school principal was arrested. ktvu janine de la vega is here now with the details on the charges. >> reporter: dave, the principal here has a lot of explaning to do to the students, parents, and authorities especially when you consider what is painted on the wall of the school. it says at the end of the day, be ready to say i'm proud of what i did today. erik dean lewis the principal here is expected to be arraigned in court today on felony drug charges. a spokesperson from the department of justice says their drug task force received

6:41 am
it's also very slow in some of the alternate routes are jammed up. i just want to let you know off the top if you're driving to the hayward the south hayward bart station this morning you are going to have trouble getting there on tennison road because of police activity. use dixon street instead. go to industrial and use dixon street. don't use tennison. all right let's move along to interstate 880 in oakland the traffic here looks pretty good. although it's crowded. at the bay bridge we have a big crowd. it's backed up for a 15-20 minute wait. 6:41 let's go to steve. sam, thank you, sir -- sal, thank you, sir. there is a delta breeze in place. that fog is really stacked up on the coast. all courtesy of this system which moved into nevada. it's move into the rockies producing snow up in colorado. for us the end result there is a little northerly wind. that is mainly up in the northern sacramento valley. there is ha lot of fog. so 50s and 60s by the coast.
6:42 am
around the bay fog then sun. 60s and 70s. inland subny and breezy. 50 to about 55 covers the spread. everything kind of stuck here. san jose clear though 52 degrees. west, southwest 21. vacaville has a west. still 80s inland. by the coast and around the bay 60s and 70s. that system will continue to march out of the area. high pressure looks like it's going to build in. kind of a slow process. slightly cooler for some today. more pronounced for others. especially well inland. still it's just tough to get ukiah and clearlake to clear down. novato 88. keptfield 77. 76 vallejo. oakland 70. 87 brentwood. hayward 74. 80 santa clara valley. saratoga 81-82. santa cruz 70. they are one of the few that will get out of the 50s.
