5:01 pm
questions coming one day after the controversial firing of fbi director james comey, a move that some say was aimed at thwarting the ties. >> reaction is starting to come in from democratic lawmakers. california senator kamala harris tweeted. this if true this is a serious threat to national security. >> in the east bay tonight a joint investigation is underway after a second massive fire within two months at a construction site on the oakland emeryville border. ktvu's paul chambers has the latest in the investigation and what the developer has to is i about the fire. paul. >> reporter: julie the fire is still under investigation and it is smoldering in certain areas. i had the chance to ask the developer about whether he thinks he is being targeted. fire crews are still sitting outside this building near the intersection of add da line and san pablo avenue. this was the scene early saturday morning when a fair destroyed the building for the second time since july of last year.
5:02 pm
>> there is an arsonist who doesn't want this building built, and we need to find out who it is and stop them. >> to be clear the cause of the july 2016 six-alarm fire is still part of an ongoing investigation. >> rick holiday is the owner of the company that is in charge of building 105 apartments and retail space on this property on the oakland emoryville border. back in july of 2016 this was the scene at the six-alarm fire. that building was expected to be completed in january of this year. >> we had been told it would take two years to rebuild the project, and in nine months we had come back which was a testament to how hard people worked. >> reporter: fast forward to may 19th when firing a gain destroyed the progress. despite the two fires 10 months apart, both at the same building construction, investigators are treating them separately. >> fire investigators are starting at step one to speak
5:03 pm
with neighbors, speak with first arriving firefighters. >> i just can't quit, though, because i can't let somebody or some people throw a wrench into this. >> reporter: there were more security guards added, even some carrying weapons. also 8 surveillance cameras were set soup the hope is that the cause of the fire is caught on video. >> i don't think that we're being targeted, per say. the rationale is when this project went through its public approvals there wasn't one opponent. >> the atf has surveillance video. firefighters will also stay on the scene until tomorrow morning monitoring and putting out hot spots. the hope is investigators can go out and begin the investigation soon. two firefighters were shocked by live electrical wires another the scene of a house fire. it happened about 11:00 last night in antioch. firefighters were called to a home on blythe drive.
5:04 pm
fire officials say one of the first things firefighters do is turn off the electricity and the power but a contra costa county spokesperson said the home had an illegal electrical hook-up that is called a clamp. it is designed to bypass the meter. >> that clamp provides power to the house. it is not protect by any circuit breakers. once you disconnect the power you assume that you are safe from that risk. but it is not just a risk to firefighters, and that's obvious whral we're talking about today but it can be a contributing factor to the cause of fire. >> fire officials say one of the two firefighters suffered a severe jolt. four adults, four children and the family dog all got out safely. the investigation is still going on. there could be criminal charges in connection with the fire. >> there has been another freeway shooting, this one injured two people in hayward. it happened last night around 9:00 on the wenton avenue off- ramp from highway 880. the shooting left a toyota
5:05 pm
tacoma pickup truck riddled with bullet holes. investigators say the shooter is pulled alongside the truck and opened fire. two men in that truck were shot and wounded. the third person was not hurt. when the driver of the pickup veered off the road the shooter sped away and remains on the run tonight. investigators say it was not a random shooting. they're now trying to figure out if there was some sort of dispute beforehand along the freeway. >> it is unknown if there was a prior incident that may have caused this to happen. we don't have any information on that at this time. >> authorities say it is too early in the investigation to tell whether this shooting is related to other recent freeway shootings in the east bay. the chp says there have been more than 110 highway shootings in the bay area since the start of 20 15. tonight there are new details about surveillance cameras that will be installed along two other east bay freeways that have been plagued by shootings. our crime reporter henry lee first told us about to state funding for those cameras last
5:06 pm
week. he is in hercules with more on what they are planning to do. henry. >> reporter: well, frank, we heard from state and local officials today at a news conference that was arranged before last night's shooting. officials tell us they have identified 15 hot spots where they want state funded cameras to be installed. surveillance cameras will be coming to interstate 80 and highway 4 after a rash of freeway shootings, many of them gang related. >> as soon as the funding is available we are ready to roll the project out. and the message to the shooters on the freeways, the reign of terror is over. >> reporter: there are already freeway cameras in san pablo and pittsburg. we asked where other cameras were being installed. officials say 15 hot spots have been identified. >> do we keep the gang members guess wring the technology is? >> reporter: the state has promised to fund a system of
5:07 pm
cameras, readers, and possibly shot spotter gunfire detectors. the cost is $1.5 million. since 2015 there have been more than 80 car to car shootings on bay area freeways. eight people have been killed all along i-80 and highway 4 in contra costa county. once the technology is in place this is what will happen if there is another shooting. >> there's gunfire up on a freeway. the micro phones will actually move the cameras in the direction of the gunfire, and the license plate readers will be taking photographs of actual license plates, either on the front of a car or back of a car. >> innocent lives have already been lost and we owe it to all of our residents to minimize the damage and threat to drivers and local residents. >> our residents in west contra costa county will be able to travel in a safer mode due to the camera system. >> reporter: but at a news conference in martinez officials warn that cameras
5:08 pm
alone won't address a violence on the freeways. >> freeway shootings do continue and we have to address this issue. cameras by themselves will not address this issue. we see this as part of a larger plan of addressing violence in the region. >> reporter: so the state is awaiting more information from the local law enforcement such as equipment placement and more details on the cost before turning over funding. it is still possible that cameras could be expanded to other freeways that have been the scene of shootings. live in hercules, henry lee, ktvu fox 2 news. the 9th u.s. circuit court heard arguments today again. the panel heard the appeal of hawaii's challenge to the revised version of the ban. the executive order was meant to bar spree of foreign nationals from six majority muslim countries for 90 days. the bay would have also kept out refugees from around the world for 120 days. a federal judge in hawaii
5:09 pm
halted enforcement of the order in march saying it unfairly targets muslims. the judges questioned the attorneys about statements made by president trump. >> during the campaign he clarified that what he was talking about were territories and countries that congress and the previous administration had determined were dangerous. when he issued both executive orders he left on his website that very statement about the complete and total shutdown of muslims, a statement that just happened to disappear moments before the 4th circuit argument last week. >> there is no indication when the judges will release their ruling but if the 9th circuit's decision is different from the pending decision coming from the 4th circuit the case will automatically go to the u.s. supreme court. computer users around the world are being urged to use caution when opening e-mails and clicking on unknown links. this comes after a worldwide cyber attack last week crippled businesses and even foreign governments. fox news reporter lauren blanchard joins us live with

5:15 pm
damaged spillway at oroville dam by may 25th. you will recall that spillway essential collapsed this wintered causing major damage and evacuations downstream. >> once that water stops flowing officials can make repairs before the rainy season starts again in five months. ktvu's tom vacar talked to an expert about whether the repair job can be done in time. tom joins us live with what he learned. >> reporter: when you hear this man talk will you understand this is no slam dunk. oroville is a critical facility for two-thirds of california's residents, and its massive agriculture industry. by any standard the spillway suffered massive damage. robert bee has spent the last half century working on massive land and sea construction project worldwide and is professor emeritus of engineering at uc berkeley. i asked him on a scale of one to 10 just how tough fixing the spillway would be. >> it's a slam dunk 10.
5:16 pm
>> reporter: bee who has consulted on the dam since january, says the department of water resources that chosen a dubious option. >> i call at patch and pray approach. >> reporter: what bee says the dam really needs san overhaul to blanket up to current and proposed dam and earthquake standards because the permanent repairs would have to last at least a half century. >> five years of snowpack is melting. and nature sun forgiving of our ignorance. i'm afraid, and i think we should be afraid. >> reporter: i asked if the department of water resources has the ability to manage an agency that can guarantee high reliability in the operation, construction, repay, and maintenance of a truly high reliability system such as oroville dam. >> no that concern is at the very top of my worry. i don't think they have a coherent understanding of what
5:17 pm
the word safe means. no coherent understanding of what that word risk means. >> reporter: even if the department can erect a temporary spillway before the fall rains come i skied about to condition of those massive steel spill gates called the head works at the top of the dam. >> in tough shape. >> reporter: bee says cracks in the critical steel structures have been studied for most of the last decade. >> even if we fix the gate, the headworks are unaddressed. >> reporter: that's to say nothing of wet spots at the bottom of the earthen dam which the department insists, without scientific proof, are just natural springs. >> we need to do everything possible to help this old dam, old like me, do the best job she can until it's time to decommission. >> reporter: of course that's to say nothing of the risk a truly large earthquake would bring to a structure built well
5:18 pm
before modern earthquake engineering techniques. >> tom, there is so much repair work to be done. how long would it take to do a major overhaul for permanent repairs? >> reporter: well, think about this to. do a major repair on the bay bridge when those bolts broke that took six months delay and delayed the bridge by almost a year. now here's the situation. whatever this repair is going to be, it is going to be temporary, it is going to be at least a stop gap repair to. do this right you probably need a year, two years. it probably took three years at the time they built this to actually build that spillway in the first place, certainly two. so the idea is they can do something in five months is frankly not something that a lot of people should put a lot of faith in. while they may get something up there, remember, when that a water comes down that water isn't like building a water slide at an amusement park. this is a she have industrial concern. it must work, and a it must work all of the time. >> tom to do it right what specifically do they need to
5:19 pm
do? replace that entire spillway? >> reporter: at least the part they build has to be built on a solid foundation. any pipes must be critical. what they have to do is have to have such a lock-tight maintenance program, remember this is the tallest dam in the united states of america. should it break that would be a true disaster. >> all right, tom vacar in the newsroom, thank you. a check of the weather now. another nice day but a little chilly still outside. chief meteorologist bill martin joins us with when things might warm back up again. >> it is going to warm up towards the middle end of the week. back to the upper 80s and low 90s. back to tom's deal, i watched them build that dam. that is how old i am. >> did you really? >> and i remember oroville, when the river came in there, we used to fish that river and swim in nelson's bar, and they built that dam. we watched them. it was a huge part of the california water project. >> i just wonder if they would
5:20 pm
have been doing regular maintenance on the dam if they could have avoided some of the problems. >> i don't know, but what tom is saying is striking. it did take them two to three years knee. was also saying they never ever anticipated that they would have have to use that second emergency spillway. >> no, no. >> maybe that was the problem. >> it's funny, i was reading back and they questioned that secondary spillway back in the day, too, because it doesn't have much. it's just dirt. it was just a dirt spillway. so's a big deal. it's a big deal that oroville dam. it's -- there's lake shasta, then there's oroville dam, and those are the two -- those are the surface reservoirs. that's where we get our water for much of northern and southern california. we do have a little water out of the skies again up in the mountains. it is the winter that will not end. lake tahoe, snow flurries yesterday. snow flurries today. you can see those green areas up in the hills to the east of us. there they are. so scattered showers.
5:21 pm
higher elevations, we're middle of may hear and we're still getting it. we do have a slight chance for a sprinkle as we head into tomorrow, but it's kind of like that mother's day deal. we did get a sprinkle in the rohnert park area yesterday, but this next system, it's basically a non event. but what we notice tomorrow, a lot of clouds and cool. so temperatures today mid-60s to low 70s. so warmer than yesterday. temperatures tomorrow i think we're time in sick. so temperatures, we're going to drop tomorrow and see a lot of cloud cover. we're in san jose. mount hamilton. the clouds thicken up. that's what it's mainly about. this would be a rain event normally but this time of year the jet stream starts to slow down. you don't get the strong dynamics.
5:22 pm
we start top ramp up because when that -- this is classic. this high -- as this low moves tout high is going to jump back in. it is going to set us into a northeast wind pattern that will put temperatures near 90 as we head into your thursday and friday. so a big warm-up after a pretty good cool-down. >> i don't mind the cool-down. >> near 90? >> maybe 90, yeah. we could see a 90 on thursday, friday. >> i'm ready for a little heat. thanks, bill. coming up the spurs lost one of the best players on their team in their game one loss to the warriors. the question a lot of people are asking, was this a dirty play? >> up next reaction on that injury play that has taken spurs star kawhi leonard out of game two. we will be right back. who are these people?
5:23 pm
the energy conscious people among us say small actions can add up to something... humongous. a little thing here. a little thing there. starts to feel like a badge maybe millions can wear. who are all these caretakers, advocates too? turns out, it's californians it's me and it's you. don't stop now, it's easy to add to the routine. join energy upgrade california and do your thing.
5:24 pm
leonard goes down in front of the spurs bench. >> it was a moment that likely swung game one in the warriors favor. it may have a huge impact on the rest of the series. san antonio spurs star kawhi
5:25 pm
leonard sprained his ankle when he came down on zaza pachulia's foot. the warriors went on a huge run eventually eliminating the spurs' 25-point lead. >> many are saying it was a dirty play. others believe it's just part of basketball. jason appelbaum joins us now. >> first of all it's amazing how the complexion of a series can change so quickly. we're not talking about the warriors' huge comeback win. we're not talking about steph and kevin durant. i won't weigh in on whether i think it was dirty quite yet but let me reset for you, because this is what everybody is talking about, at least gregg popovich was talking about. this play which we just showed you where zaza pachulia. actually this is the play before it. so kawhi leonard actually rolled his ankle twice. that's the play where he
5:26 pm
actually stepped on david lee and rolled his ankle. david lee a dirty player because he was sitting on the bench? i don't think so. here's the play in the third where sai zach, looks like a simple close-out. look at his reaction. zaza doesn't even think it should have been a foul. he's hopping up and down. >> it looked like he accidentally landed on his foot. >> that's probably what happened. but kawhi leonard left the game, the warriors went on an 18-0 run. they ended up coming back from 25 down. today coach gregg popovich called pachulia dangerous and unsportsmanlike in a roughly four-minute rant. >> totally unnatural close-out that the league has outlawed years ago. if he would have played and they would have ended up winning, i go get dinner, after glass of wine, wake up the next day go to practice and move object. but this is crap. and because he has got this history, it can't just bear,
5:27 pm
oh, it was inadvertent, he didn't have intent. would gives a damn about what his intent was. you ever hear of manslaughter? you still go to jail. when you are texting and you end up killing somebody. you might not have intended to do. that all i care is what i saw. all i care about is what happened. in the history there, exacerbates the whole situation and makes me very, very angry. but i'm still open to follow- ups. >> so you see there's a little bit of gamesmanship going on. it's a little bit of an act. he ends it on a funny note. when you compare manslaughter to a guy stepping on a guy's ankle, it's a little bit -- >> does he think that zaza pachulia deliberately stepped on his foot? >> he doesn't really care. i think he's really upset about the loss. here's the thing. zaza has a history of some would say being a little bit of a dirty player or at least
5:28 pm
being an enforcer, a guy who might cross the line association,'s not about to give him the benefit of the doubt. >> does he make those comments after or before? >> he made those comments this morning. >> did he know about the play before where he rolled his ankle? >> yeah, but that wouldn't matter to him because obviously he would say maybe zaza knew it was already tweaked so maybe he wanted to reinjure it again. >> what about from today? >> it changed the whole focus of practice. instead of going out and talking to some of the stars, look at the media focused on -- this is the most need i can't zaza pachulia has ever gotten. >> what did he say today? >> he wanted to -- folks were trying to probe him. at first he was a little reluctant to talk about the whole thing, but when pressed, did he expand on it, and here is what he said. >> i really feel bad for the guy. i wish it didn't happen. add different result basically.
5:29 pm
but my approach to this game for 14 years without being in the league is to play hard and give pie 100%, whatever i have. so i don't agree with the coach said i'm a dirty player. i'm not a dirty player. just love this game and i'm playing hard. that's how i was taught since day one. >> bottom line, zaza pachulia, it doesn't sound like, it doesn't look like he tried to injure him, but kawhi leonard is out for game two and possibly beyond. he's one of the best players in the nba. >> what's the injury? >> sprained ankle. he injured it in game five in the previous series sew was already suffering from a little bit of a tweaked ankle, then rolled it twice against the warriors. coming up, a rolling shoot- out caught on camera. the search by san francisco police for the two drivers involved. last week we told you abutted an alleged sexual assault that happened on one of the school grounds in the palo

5:34 pm
when i tried to pull away he started pushing my head down forcefully. >> reporter: the information from that case wasn't shared with parents or other students due to a federal law called ferpa. the family educational rights and privacy act. under that law a students records from attend apps to criminal conviction can't be released. >> even if the school district thought that law was in appropriate their hands are tied. they can't turn over that information at risk of losing federal funding. >> reporter: two other girls have since come forward claiming that the same student athlete sexually assaulted them in separate incidents. one allegedly on campus. monday palo alto officials issued a statement staying student athlete was quote, neither arrested nor convicted of sexual harassment or sexual assault on school grounds. even in the face of the ferpa law the lack of transparency surrounding such a serious allegation is frustrating to many people. the e-mail one alleged victim wrote to fox 2, sexual assault
