5:03 pm
crews. >> reporter: the slide happened in the burn area of the north bay firestorms but authorities are not sure if the fire here helped cause the landslide. >> last year, this road slid in this area last couple of years, and there was more dirt and debris on the road. >> reporter: caltrans says it has tried to stabilize the hillsides in the fire zones. >> we actually have done a lot of work in the area recently after the fires to -- preventative measures, including rockslide prevention and that's also included, um, hydroseeding of those hillsides after the fires. >> reporter: but caltrans says there are no guarantees. >> with the weather coming and there may be more, um, acts of nature coming, um, but all we can do is prepare the best we can. >> reporter: caltrans geologists have deemed the hillside safe and have reopened the highway. but they say another rainstorm could trigger another mudslide and tragedy down below. in napa county, rob roth, ktvu fox 2 news. there is new information
5:04 pm
tonight about a mysterious case in stockton. police are searching for one- year-old twins after the family was reported missing last week. stockton police have now arrested the twins' parents, identified as aaron wetles and princess dara walker after finding them yesterday but the twins were not with them. police say the parents are not cooperating with investigators. the parents have been booked on felony child endangerment charges as the search for those missing twins continues tonight. investigators say a suspect who was shot and killed by san jose police last night was carrying nearly a dozen weapons at the time. the shooting happened at the metcalf energy center, a power facility in south san jose. ktvu's ann rubin is outside san jose police headquarters with more. reporter: authorities aren't sure whether the man was looking to damage the power plant or whether he was just looking for a -- [ signal breakup ] [ pause ] >> he is on foot. reporter: for san jose police the preliminary call
5:05 pm
was concerning. a man had hopped a fence at the metcalf energy center on blanchard road and appeared to be armed. this witness asked not to be identified. >> he was sitting in the van, all the windows fogged up. he had a sword or something that looked like an object mounted on his dashboard kind of like a weapon, it looked like. >> reporter: that wasn't all. in addition to the sword, authorities say the man carried with him two axes, a long pole, six throwing knives and pepper spray. he was on the grounds of the power plant which serves part of san jose when officers confronted him. >> the suspect ignored commands and yelled, shoot me and kill me several times during the incident. the suspect turned around and advanced towards the officers still armed with both the pole and the axe. >> reporter: police chief eddie garcia says the suspect was asked to drop the weapons at least 23 times but kept advancing. >> when the suspect was approximately 5 to 6 feet away from one of the officers, one officer shot the suspect and
5:06 pm
then the suspect continued toward a second officer with the axe and pole still in his hands and the second officer then also shot. >> reporter: the suspect, an asian man in his late 20s, it was pronounced dead at the scene. authorities say he had a history of narcotics and weapons offense and he had also been placed on a 72-hour psychiatric hold back in september. at this point, they know nothing about his motive. >> sad for everybody involved and, you know, we hope that we'll be able to figure out his intent at some point. >> reporter: the officers are on routine administrative leave. the incident was captured on their body cameras. ann rubin, ktvu fox 2 news. high-end purses targeted in a bay area shopping mall. how it took just minutes for thieves to get away with $100,000 in merchandise. >> also ahead tonight, an immigration investigation targets 7-eleven stores across the country including seven locations here in the bay

immigration and customs enforcement raided nearly 100 7-eleven stores across the country this morning. several of those are here in the bay area. and ktvu's alyana gomez is outside one of the stores raided this morning in petaluma. alyana. >> reporter: good evening, frank. yeah, this store right here in petaluma was raided early this morning. it's in a very busy shopping center off of a major busy roadway. so you can imagine the amount of attention that was drawn to this store here. it alarmed some customers, we are told, and, of course, a lot of people wondering what's going on, concerned about
5:10 pm
what's happening here with i.c.e. coming in and asking questions and asking to see some paperwork here. now, again, this is one of seven stores in the bay area that were raided this morning. there were also three in reno, nevada, which makes 10 in the northern california-nevada area. now, stores in napa, north sebastopol, santa rosa, santa clara, petaluma and suisun city were all surrounded with i.c.e. agents looking for employee status. this is the largest enforcement operation against an employ under president trump. officials say it was a follow- up to a 2013 investigation that resulted in nine arrests after raiding various 7-eleven franchises in new york. we spoke with the manager at a store in another location in petaluma who says while none of their employees were arrested, it was still a frightening experience. >> i was nervous and scared, like why are they coming in to
5:11 pm
check on everybody? because we're not doing anything wrong. >> reporter: nationwide, 21 people were arrested today. i.c.e. won't say if there were any arrests here in northern california or nevada. we asked them to confirm the numbers but they would not give numbers. they wouldn't release information other than the statement they provided today. but again, this is just something that immigration attorneys are saying we're going to see more of under the trump administration. >> so alyana, i'm assuming no one at the 7-eleven behind you would talk today about what happened. >> reporter: correct. the owner here referred me to their media line. they said they didn't want to talk. they said it was a scary experience but they just didn't want to go on camera. >> thank you. authorities identified the bart police officer today who shot and killed a man last week outside the west oakland bart station. bart officials say officer joseph mateo fatally shot 28- year-old shalim tinnedle. he was armed with a gun. the bart officer was near the
5:12 pm
staying when he responded to a shooting on january 3. he saw two men in a struggle and one of them was holding a gun. man with the gun refused commands -- the plan with the gun refused commands to drop the gun and the officer shot him. the officer is on paid leave while they investigate. another person has died from the flu in santa clara county. that brings the total number of deaths throughout california to 28 since the flu season began. officials did not release details about this latest death other than to say the person was under the age of 65 and did not have a flu vaccine. five people have died of the flu so far this season in santa clara county. health officials have said the appears that this flu season is the worst in 10 years. >> influenza 2018 is upon us. the number of cases are just exploding both throughout the county, actually throughout
5:13 pm
the west coast and in our emergency department. >> again, health officials say that so far here in california, 28 people have died from flu-related illnesses this season. about 70% of them didn't have the flu vaccine. typically, at this time, there are only 3 or 4 deaths from the flu. officials note there is plenty of vaccine available and it's not too late to get it. back now to tonight's top story. we are just getting some new numbers from santa barbara county where the sheriff now says 17 people are still reported missing at this hour and 17 people are now confirmed dead following mudslides there. the hardest hit area is the affluent community of montecito where search crews are focusing efforts tonight. phil shuman is in montecito. what's the situation? >> reporter: well, another very difficult day just physically getting through this thick mud.
5:14 pm
this is a house against a tree. it's hard to imagine unless you're here. 13 people missing unaccounted for, um, 17 fatalities. it's up 2 from yesterday. so search crews have been here using dogs and probes this stick into the mud. they are trying to stay optimistic. there is a window to find survivors alive but, of course, that window closes with each passing minute. they are going to be here as long as realistically possible. it is possible that bodies won't be found until sometime down the road when they can clear out the mud. >> phil, what can you tell us about the victims? i know they are not releasing the names yet but where were they found? in homes or cars? what can you tell us about that. >> reporter: it's interesting, the coroner isn't releasing
5:15 pm
the name of any victims. we have an 84-year-old, the founder of a private catholic school in nearby ventura but the logical assumption is that they were in their homes because remember, this happened at 2:30, 3 a.m. monday night, tuesday morning. and these houses were just inundated with mud and water, debris, really without much of a warning other than the general warning for the heavy rains that were predicted. again, this was a voluntary evacuation area considerably down the mountain from where the thomas fire burned last month. but we're assuming that the victims for the most part were in their houses. >> phil, how many homes were affected and is the problem as you kind of talked about here that there's so much mud and debris that they can't get to the houses to go inside and look for people? >> reporter: well, it's a combination of things. we'll take a quick walk. i mean, this -- this flat area here, these were lots with houses on them. they were literally worked
5:16 pm
away. they are talking about six houses completely destroyed, about 100 others damaged. and what's left behind is this debris field and the mud literally was up to the waist of rescuers. so yeah, so it's a combination of mud covering things and unable to physically access it, the two problems. >> we have been dramatic stories about people have been to be rescued from rooftops. have you seen any of those rescues or talked to people who have been rescued about what it was like and there are still more people that need to be rescued. >> reporter: the rescued happened early tuesday morning. there were 50 rescues. the coast guard was here. the county sheriffs were here. the fire department was here. the people that are so-called trapped in canyons aren't trapped in the sense of, you know, there's rain and mud falling right now. it's a remote location and difficult to get in and out.
5:17 pm
so the people that were rescued, yeah, it was terrifying. the number between -- 600 911 calls were handled between 3 and 6 a.m. in the morning. this is a history changing event for this small community. nine square miles, less than 10,000 people. you know, they have had fires and floods but nothing on this scale. >> phil, i'm just wondering if you had a chance to talk anybody caught in the flooding about what it was like. but anything specific about how fast it happened and what they did? >> reporter: well, you know, what they said was the sound of it. they used the analogy like a train or like a freight train. they heard it coming. they heard the crackling, the wood, the trees. and then the impact. that's what they really remember talking about really the sound of it.
5:18 pm
>> just a lot of work to do down there. phil shuman, thanks for your reporting down there in santa barbara county. we appreciate it. let's bring in our chief meteorologist bill martin now to talk more about this situation. boy, you see that. >> the mud. >> it looks like the rain is over but the mud is up to here. >> right. >> just seeing how thick it was and how deep it was. those homes were -- it was like halfway up the homes and that one 14-year-old girl we talked about it was up to her neck. >> i was just looking at pictures coming out of santa barbara now before and after. it's an amazing event. those hills behind santa barbara about up to above 4,000 feet. if you have been to santa barbara, you just look straight up and it's not far from town so whenever that rain comes off the hills, mud drains down into the urban areas. so here's what happened. we talked about it last night and the night before, too. but it was rainfall rate, right? i talked to some folks north of montecito in santa barbara, a little closer up towards the airport, and they didn't notice these rainfall rates. it was a very localized heavy rainfall event and you think
5:19 pm
half inch in five minutes that's not a big deal. that's a rainfall rate of four inches an hour. that's what you find in a cat- 5 hurricane. it just came down and it dumped! when you look at the rainfall accumulations, not much different than the accumulations we had around here. but what i want you to notice here is the topography. look at how sheer these cliffs are. here's montecito. it rains up in here and it just starts rushing down and that's exactly what happened. they aren't set up like northern california. we have the russian river, the napa river, we have rivers. they don't have rivers, right? what's a river? there's a couple of little creeks and semi-flows in that area but they don't have good drainage there, not like we do. they are not set that up way. different landscape. we do have rain that has ended now and when the showers end we're looking for things to start to clear out a little more tomorrow. we had a few light sprinkles today and that should be it. but now what happens is the valley fog comes back and a
5:20 pm
lot of it. the ground is wet. the models are bullish on the valley fog for tomorrow morning and that's going to be probably the weather headline i think tomorrow morning especially on the commutes and the drives in napa, sacramento, davis, modesto, clayton. there's a live camera shot outside. you can see all the cars coming out of there -- help me with this, that looks like livermore. is that livermore? [ pause ] >> yeah. okay. martinez. yeah, i knew that. [ laughter ] >> that's what you get. thanks, guys. overnight lows forecast -- look for the fog, that's the story. these dew points are right on the temperature. forecast low 43 in napa. dew point in napa is 43. so when the temperature hits the dew point temperature, fog forms so get ready for that. not raining tomorrow but foggy when you get going on that morning commute. when i come back, we'll give you the long- range forecast. the weekend isn't that far away. we'll talk about that and the

steal expensive handbags at a busy shopping mall. our crime reporter henry lee live now in palo alto with more on the heist at gucci. >> reporter: it happened here at this nordstrom at a stanford shopping center when a group of thieves stole gucci bags worth $100,000. reporter: at the nordstrom's store near stanford university, about 10 people walked in a half-hour before the store closed on monday night and made a beeline north gucci purses and cut off security cables with wire cutters. they stole about 50 bags. one female thief tried to punch an employee who tried to intervene. >> it's brazen. they don't care if they get stopped by loss prevention or not. >> reporter: the total loss, about $100,000. we went online to the gucci website where bags were listed average about $2,000 each. palo alto police wouldn't

a federal judge in san francisco temporarily blocked the trump administration from the daca program from ending the program while lawsuits are heard in court. the judge's ruling came last night just hours after the president sat down with congressional leaders at the white house to discuss daca and other immigration issues. in the wake of that ruling, the city of san francisco is rallying behind immigrants. acting mayor london breed showed her support today at the unveiling of a new

5:31 pm
deportation. >> we're targeting young working studying productive people and this is partly what's so baffling and what's so upsetting about this policy. >> reporter: this law professor says dismantling daca amounts to gratuities cruelty. >> many have no recollection of childhood in other countries beyond the united states because they came here as toddlers. >> the kids are in fear and there's stress on our community. so you know, it just makes me mad because they are attacking our -- a vulnerable population. >> reporter: so with san francisco engaged in a legal war with president trump -- >> it's one of the most incisive decisions came out of hawaii, another from new york and virginia so the perception that everything is happening in san francisco is not accurate. >> reporter: but the professor concedes that the ninth circuit has a reputation for being liberal and california is a natural forum for immigration discussion. >> more than a quarter, almost a third actually of daca applicants are in california. >> reporter: the professor expects the case will go to

the supreme court. meantime, mayor london breed vows not to give up on the city's immigrants. >> it's sad and we got to keep using the courts to fight it. we got to keep pushing for, um, changes to congress. >> reporter: in san francisco, tara moriarty, ktvu fox 2 news. more than 100 corporate leaders are calling on congress to provide legal protection for all those young people at risk for deportation. facebook's mark zuckerberg and tim cook have signed an open letter to congress. the letter urges congress to swiftly pass bipartisan legislation that would protect the roughly 700,000 illegal immigrants who were children when they arrived in the u.s. until last year, they were protected by the daca program. president trump ended the program which allowed them to live and work in the united states without problems. again, congress is now trying to work on a compromise to continue the program. in an effort to be more transparent, san jose police unveiled a new tool today which allows the public to track the department's use of
5:33 pm
force. the online portal breaks down the data by categories including type of call, location, and type of force used. the data is compiled by an independent company which also produced a preliminary analysis. the police chief says it found that racial disparities in use of force by san jose officers are nonexistent. consultants on the project say they are glad the public will be able to form their own conclusions. >> we're not afraid of our stats and we're not afraid to get better. i think putting it out to the community on such a polarizing issue on force is groundbreaking for us and this department. >> the challenge will be to continue that trust and to make sure that the law enforcement agencies like this department continue to maintain quality data with integrity. >> san jose is only the second city in the nation to put this system online for the public. the portal can be accessed through the san jose police
