5:00 pm
with marco rubio and they each have 20% of the vote in georgia. we move to vermont. and the results are too close to call. donald trump is leading right now in vermont. the latest count is he has 38%, 37% here. john kaisch second place and marco rubio with 19 percent and too close to call. we move to virginia and the results for the republican party with donald trump and trying to fight off marco rubio there. that is also a very close race. donald trump has 35% to rubio's 33%. ted cruz in 3rd with 15%. we go to the democrats and the number of delegates at stake. many more for the delegates. 865 delegates at stake. today on this super tuesday. here is the breakdown of who has won so far. the states that finished their voting at 4:00 our time, vermont, bernie sanders has won
5:01 pm
vermont and that is no surprise. and we move to georgia. hillary clinton has won georgia and hillary clinton has also won virginia. so those are the results so far. you just mentioned five more states, the polls have just closed. and we are waiting to hear the results from texas because that has the lion's share of those states. we just got this in, in states that closed voting, tennessee and alabama have both been called for donald trump. he wins the republican primary in those two states. one thing to keep in mind frank and julie, these delegates are proportionate delegates. not winner take all states. so even though marco rubio has yet to win a state, and he is doing pretty well in virginia right now, they will not win all of the delegates. trump could walk away with this sweeping super tuesday but marco rubio could pick up
5:02 pm
enough delegates to be competitive, the real challenge comes on march 15th when they have the winner take all primaries in states like ohio, illinois and marco rubio's home state of florida. i just got this in on the democratic side. alabama has gone to hillary clinton as have tennessee. those results in and no big surprises and marco rubio staying competitive. going back to the delegate distribution. you mentioned all of them are based on proportional basis. as of march 15th and winner take all. >> exactly and that is why this is really critical for marco rubio to at least do well enough to pick up enough delegates to stay in the hunt. the gop is hoping that marco rubio has a 20% threshold. that he gets 20% of the vote in all of these states. to pick up enough delegates to stay close enough to donald trump so that when we get to march 15th and it is winner take all and if marco rubio can pick up his home state of
5:03 pm
florida and perhaps another state like illinois or ohio, he will be on donald trump's tail in terms of the delegate count. if cruz drops out you got a two man race in the republican party and a different ball game. >> as of right now it is shaping up to be a good night for donald trump. >> no surprise. ken, we will check back with you for more results a bit later on. one of the main talking points of the election is the vacancy of the u.s. supreme court. president obama invited senate leaders to the white house to talk about the supreme court vacancy that was left by the recent death of antonin scalia. they met in the oval office across the pacific republicans stood fast on their refusal to consider any nominee of president obama. the white house says the president offered to consider
5:04 pm
any names that republicans may put forward. democratic leader harry reed says they are not fulfilling their constitutional duty. >> they will wait and see what president trump will do as far as the nomination. republicans want to replace the next nomination but president obama is still planning to nominate one anyway. a college in south bay was evacuated because after bomb threat in sarasota. the college president says workers inside the campus found that note at about 9:15 this morning. he says that it indicated a student plan to "blow up the campus." >> the note indicated that the person who had made the threat was proceeding to the math and science building. he says that it was quickly determined to evacuate all students, visitors and employees and shut the school down for the rest of the day. the school has about 12,000 students. a sweep of the campus however found nothing. the all clear was issued at
5:05 pm
about two this afternoon and classes will be back to normal tomorrow. >> city officials in san francisco say the last of the homeless encampment on division street is almost cleared out. about 50 workers from the department of public works along with police officers began to clean up the homeless encampment at four this morning. the encampment on division street from south bend 211. the crews managed to remove 90% of the items and most of the homeless have complied to vacate. in san francisco charges filed against two sheriff deputies and a former deputy. accused of arranging fights between innates for entertainment kind of like gladiator style jailhouse fights. ktvu reporter henry lee is in the newsroom with more. >> three men working in san francisco have been charged with enforcing two innates to fight against their will. the d.a. says deputies threatened them
5:06 pm
if they did not go through with them. >> san francisco district attorney george gascon forced garcia and harris that is much bigger than garcia to fight at least twice in the jail on brian street. then deputy scott neu told the innates if they didn't fight he would handcuff them and beat them or send them to a different jail where there would be fewer privileges. it is underminding the moral authority of the honest, hard working deputies that work hard day in and day out to protect us and to ensure that we run our county jail system in a proper and legal manner. public defender jeff adochi brought the allegations to light. >> we call this a game of throne gladiator fight because it was done for money.
5:07 pm
we heard from the inmate last year. they took me down through the hallway and made me beat another inmate that was done and told me if i didn't fight that i would basically be beat. attorney stern told me off camera that the charges are overblown and the case is being pursued by a d.a. stern says at most his client may have left the inmates wrestle about who was stronger. but gascon says the fights were unreal. >> it is unfortunate when we down play bad behavior that this is horseplay. this was really bad behavior by law enforcement officers. it was very inhumane treatment going on with the people supposed to protect while in their custody. sheriff vicki hennessy was not in office at the time of the alleged fights but wants to make sure that this doesn't happen again. i think the biggest thing
5:08 pm
for me is that all of the deputy sheriffs in the department, particularly the vast majority that work hard every day and do the job and do it right and do it with humanity and compassion and keeping people safe are all very disappointed and more about the allegations. now neu is no longer a deputy charged with several felonies including assault and making criminal threats. deputy eugene jones on unpaid leave and charged with felony counts and the third deputy clifford chiba is still employed by the sheriff but no contact with inmates. frank and julie. new at five. san jose interim police chief sworn in by the leader of the police force. >> the duty about where i am about to enter. congratulations. the city council ratified the appointment of eddy garcia as the police chief.
5:09 pm
been the acting chief when the former police chief left for the tracy department. served in second in command under escobar and explained more about the police department. >> everything we do as an organization i would like to think it is a coop. we are trying to make the community better and safer. garcia ascent to the position of chief was widely expected given that san jose never launched a formal candidate search. your options to get bay area news changed. new at 5:30. the consolidation with a bay area newspaper group. after a couple weeks on the road. the warriors are back in the comforts of home. we will go to oracle arena where we are working on the status of seth curry's ankle injury. the amount of snow is dropping. the latest numbers from the sierra and the good news from the snow pack. and i am tracking good news

5:12 pm
shortly. jury selection and opening statements in the civil rights trial for alex andto began in san francisco federal court. his parents are suing the city for the wrongful death of their son. police shot and killed him two years ago. this morning hundreds of supporters rallied outside the courthouse. ktvu tara moriarty was there. how did things go in court today. >> jury selection took quite a long time. almost all day. some of the questions that they were asking potential jurors were do you know police, how do you feel about police?
5:13 pm
do you have any relationships with police? do you feel that relationship may taint your jump in this case. another question was how do you feel about protestors and jurors got a great look at protestors in the way in the courthouse. 200 people were protesting and here to support the niesto family accusing the city of the police officers killing their 28-year-old son two years ago. during opening statements, the defense portrayed niesto as someone acting erratically. pointed a taser at the officers that acted in self-defense. the plaintiff said the man was eating a burrito at sunset with his taser in his holster that he used as his job as security guards and some people thought it was a real gun and called 911. niesto's attorney says the
5:14 pm
officers have been cleared of wrongdoing fired 59 shots and sfpd needs to answer for it. >> there was haste and overreaction. and it was the officers violating their training. they rushed into a situation. when you allow a rookie to call the shots, 59 shots is what took place. >> they had no reason to believe that what this man was pointing was a taser. they had every reason to believe this was a real firearm that the position that he was in outside any cover meant that he actually intended to harm them, there was no other reason for them to think that he pulled out a gun and pointed it at them. the red laser light was very important to them and it meant that he had a strong possibility of hitting them because the red laser light is used to aim. they thought that meant that this man had a real gun and aiming at them and about to shoot them. the plaintiff talked about evidence not big handled properly by authorities and claims that the time stamps on the stun gun don't match up
5:15 pm
with what police are saying. the niestos were sitting in the the front row and wiped away tears when their son's body was shown on the ground and they plan to be here every day for the trial. you spoke with attorneys for the niesto's family and why do he believes he has a strong case. >> there is a big role from the evidence in the trial. he talked about the stun gun and the time stamps and the bullets, 59 shots were fired and yet police had accounted for 48 bullets. he said a lot of this evidence does not match up. one other thing that folks could take into consideration. back then when the incident happened two years ago the climate and attitude towards police is different than now. we have the mario woods case and that is one thing that people should definitely be keeping an eye on. tara, thank you.
5:16 pm
a highly contagious stomach bug is making its way around u c berkeley. health services says 29 cases of suspected norovirus reported. the symptoms include diarrhea and vomiting and nausea and fever. so far health officials have not been able to track the source but they think that some of the cases may be linked to a bally wood dance event on february 20th. early season snow in the sierra has made for great skiing and the hope that northern california reservoirs on would fill up. the two snow pack measurements were above normal and after a month of little rain or snow, experts say that things have changed dramatically. the state released its latest snow pack figures. there are two months left in the rainy season and tom vacar is at the reservoir with the numbers. tom. it is a reservoir that is kept full specifically for earthquakes and other emergencies. as to the other reservoirs last
5:17 pm
month, above average snow pack and rapidly rising reservoirs. today, not so rosy. as they do every month, snow surveyors measured snow levels at 300 locations. statewide we stand at 83% of normal, well below the 116% recorded just a month ago. february which is typically a wet month and we had a very disappointing month. so as you saw in the sierra as well as here at home, our averages have dropped a bit. >> that is why the coming wet weather system is critical before the official end of rainy season comes may 1st. long range models are predicting the first two weeks of march will be wet. and those long range models want to bring us wet weather perhaps to the 15th of the month. that is definitely some great news. much of that water is needed in the state's mega
5:18 pm
reservoirs like unlike the smaller reservoirs is below the averages. lake shasta is at 61% of capacity. lakeoryville the second largest 53% and don don pedro 47% and new malin as 19 percent of capacity. at this point it would take two solid months of make rain and snow to seriously dent the drought. >> we need to figure out what is going to be the new normal. other large reservoirs is the sierra reservoirs. they are currently at 2/3 of average for this time of year. and less than half of the capacity. we have gone through the drought. the 5th year of extreme drought would be tough on us. san francisco's hatchery is at 71% of capacity but it serves many, many bay area water agencies. what happens in the next 8 weeks will tell us what water restrictions will apply.
5:19 pm
we don't know how much water will have to carry us through the summer and to the next winter. now, we certainly have gotten some relief, no question about that. but it is not nearly enough if we want to get out of the drought. tom vacar, ktvu fox 2 news. and tom, you were at that reservoir, do you notice a big difference from when you were there two weeks ago. >> which one. >> the lafayette reservoir. >> lafayette has been kept full because it is emergency sort of worse but if you go to lake shasta, a good example, you are not going to see much difference. in fact in some of them the water is below the average because they have had no rain and evaporation and certain outflow for agricultural and environmental things. the situation is not any better than it was a month ago. if these storms come in and do the kind of job they hope then we will be in much better shape
5:20 pm
but we have pretty much recessed in the last month. we will find out because we will check in with meteorologist bill martin and has the latest on this situation and we have rain coming this week, right? >> we do. significant rain coming this week but to reverse back to what tom was saying about we may have to do restrictions, we should do restrictions regardless of if we are 150% or not. this is a dry or has the potential to be a dry drought ridden state. we are learning that in the last four years. but we need to stay on water rationing like australia. a ten year drought. the big dry and that place had all sorts of problems and got people to adjust as rosemary pointed out, the new norm. get used to conserving and get used to using gray water. it is not going away. so forget how much rain we get, we have to con serve in and out and agricultural interest. no question about that. there is a system coming our way. look at that bad boy.
5:21 pm
it will bring rain as we head to tomorrow night. a little bit of rain north. more rain as we head to thursday. scattered showers. friday, saturday and sunday, we will get wet. so that is good. we can see potential rainfall accumulations to around a couple of inches over the course of that time. the current temperatures are in the 60s. we did see a few low 70s. overnight lows will be in the 40s. low 40s and as rosemary pointed out. february was a bust as far as el nino was concerned in terms of rainfall accumulations. but as we look at the long range models, we are getting back to a nice moist latitude pattern hoping for significant rain in the next couple of weeks. forecast highs, in the 60s. low 70s. a big pattern shift as we go to all the way through the 15th of the month. we are expecting wet weather on the west coast. let's take a look at real quick numbers. they are roughing it out here. san francisco, the models are
5:22 pm
saying five inches. a half of foot of rain in the russian river drainage basin and three inches in lake shasta and lake oracle and the snow in the sierra. the five-day forecast and you can see a little bit of everything. it gets going, i think on friday night into saturday and sunday. but it drives me crazy when we say if we get enough rain we will back off. it is game on. we have to concern from here on out. we have to change it. >> it is so easy to waste water and not think about it and leave it on when you are brushing your teeth or washing the dishes and it is so easy to con serve if you have it in your mind set. >> we have wet winter, dry summer. the rest of the country gets rain or snow something all year round but we shut off as soon as late spring until october and november. it doesn't matter how much rain we get, we need more rain but if we do, we need to con serve
5:23 pm
and there has to be a new sort of state of mind. >> i agree. thank you, bill. back now to the election and this is shaping up to be a good super tuesday for donald trump. he has won alabama, georgia, massachusetts, and tennessee. but in vermont. on the republican side, here are the current numbers. donald trump leads with 36% and john kaisch in second with 25%. marco rubio in 3rd with 19 percent. and these are not winner take all. they are proportionate and moving to virginia to show you the latest numbers from virginia. at this hour, donald trump in the lead here with 36%. marco rubio in second with 30% and ted cruz coming in third in the state of virginia. coming up next. after a grueling two week road trip. the warriors back home. coming up, we will go live to oracle arena where fans are

5:25 pm
5:26 pm
cocktail. >> warriors back and there's a
5:27 pm
question about their superstar player. joe fonzi is like at oracle arena with the latest on seth curry's injury. joe. >> the atlanta hawks are doing pregame work behind me. it was just a week ago that the warriors were in atlanta beating the hawks as part of that long road trip. that trip was concluded by a game that is still very much at everybody's mind. that was the game on saturday night where the warriors unlikely win pulled out a 121- 118 win. the downside was the fact that seth curry went down in the 3rd quarter and his ankle rolled on. curry was taken out and missed 6 minutes and got back up and had that electrifying 4th quarter that concluded with that quarter to give the warriors a win. it also tied settle for 12, three pointers in the a single game. that is the all-time record. he is a game time decision. we don't know if he will play
5:28 pm
tonight. clay thompson in the shoot around was asked about what the warriors have to do if they don't have curry. >> 30 points, that's a lot more than that. so we will do it collectively. and the shots going around. and we have to be patient with the office and smooth the ball. we have to be patient. >> the warriors depth has been one of the strong points this year. if settle is not in the game, that means more brandon rush, a little bit more other guys, sean livingston and we will here from steve kerr and he will tell us and what we are hearing a game time decision whether or not seth plays. there is too many records to talk about with the guys and the home winning streak is one of them. as they try to continue that. they are going for number 43 in a row. 44 is the record.
5:29 pm
there is so many things happening out here. but we will find out hopefully about seth in the 6:00 slot. i'm joe fonzi. >> we are looking forward to hearing from coach kerr. fewer options to get your news. the news group consolidating. a hate crime in the east bay. the surveillance video that police want you to be looking

5:33 pm
hayward or the argus you will receive weekly publications and there will be an east bay times. we spoke with the editor for the oakland tribune and the contra costa times in the newsroom and she says it is a sad thought that the daily oakland tribune will seek to exist but it appears to be a sign of the times. that is especially true as more people are now getting their news on mobile devices. these mergers will take effect on april 5th. some buyouts and layoffs are expected across the board in the south bay and the east bay. we don't know how many will be just yet. that remains to be seen. reporting in the newsroom, cristina rendon. ktvu fox 2 news. all right. new numbers from several super tuesday states are coming in. i want to go back to ken wayne tracking the totals. what can you tell us. >> the numbers from states that
