>> the plan could make car break-ins a manageable problem within three years rather than an epidemic. homicide investigators hope you, the public can help them find a man who may have more information about the killing early yesterday morning. police are looking for this man. they are not saying that he is suspect. he was near the scene where a 28-year-old man was found dead in the parking lot on empire street. police believe the victim and whoever killed him knew each other, but they are not telling us the name of the victim until his family has been notified. if you see the man in the photo call fairfield police are 911 immediately. skateboarding crash into a san francisco police officer is suing the city, county and the police officer. the vallejo resident bounced off and officers shoulder

his life that they had that camera there. to me that nosecone will cost about $5 million. the that will be a focus of retrieval. >> a local company and palo alto has built the satellite. maybe even some of those people are watching where the sunlight was built. it must be a big moment for that bay area company watching what is happening. . >> i would like to be standing next to elon musk right now. . >> i'm sure he has a big smile on his face. . >> our producer said the fairy built to retrieve the cone has launched. it will head out and retrieve that. it has a special claw and
if you are just joining us, we were able to capture that on the camera that is on top of the building in san francisco. wherever you are, you might be able to step outside and see that light in the sky. there were a lot of incredible pictures. again, to remind you, elon musk is creating a constellation of thousands of satellites that will beam internet back to earth. a company out of palo alto build this satellite for spanish
television. and, elon musk is trying to coordinate that and launch more of these. . >> and the weather has cooperated so far. we have been no problems at this point. we are up close and also back. you can see this on two screens on your screen right now. . >> this was launch from vandenberg air force base. and that is why we are seeing here in san francisco in the bay area. it's pretty clear. we just got confirmation of a good orbit. we have reached the intended low earth orbit point. . >> that is fascinating.
that right there is different from the nassau lunch. they have the camera on board and they are showing what is happening. you may say on the sides a few extra things. we would love to give you footage but, the second stage will be passing out of coverage before the satellites deploy. so we will just cover the
primary payload satellite. . >> to have this narrative explaining what is happening of what we are looking at. the significance of it, the differences between space x and a massive launch. if you don't know, vandenberg air force base is north of santa barbara. that is why we can see it fairly clearly hear from our camera. we lost a few because it is getting lighter and the contrast is not there. but earlier we saw from our camera and i'm sure the people walking around doing their thing probably wondered what it was. . >> the primary payload will
going away from the second stage and soon it will start communicating with the ground. this will bring an end to our webcast coverage for those of you who joined us, we had a successful launch. a successful separation and a good second engine burn. and just now a good separation of the pop satellite. i would like to thank the customer for allowing us to film the launch today. unfortunately we cannot bring you coverage -- >> okay. we just watch that live from california. they say it is very different from nassau. it does not have to go to the same safety requirements that nassau would go through. . >> if it works the way they say
it will it will have a big impact on internet service around the world. elon musk wants to create a constellation of internet satellites. we'll keep you updated on that, we want to bring you back here on earth. where we are concerned about our own weather. >> whoever that man was narrating that was aces. thank he did his research. . >> this guy knows his stuff. that was very good. . >> we have interesting weather pattern as well. they should be some those snow levels coming in around here. this is in mendocino county and lake county.
this is the first rain in san francisco in 27 days. this will be a much better system for the sierra nevada. they could get up to 10 inches of snow. but the snow level could be down to 2000 and feet. we are under partly sunny, partly cloudy skies hip look at the windchill up in seattle. be advised tomorrow morning to be very cold. 30s and 40s for the temperature. the breeze will be a factor today. and this will give us the possibility of showers, but maybe some scattered snow showers among the peaks. let's go up and take a look at 80 westbound as you come up
to the macarthur maze. unfortunately i cannot give you great news here it will be a tough commute. as you drive through the bay bridge toll plaza there are no problems on the bridge. but you can see slow traffic from highway 24. and looking at the commute here, you can see some wind, it will be breezy today. note major problems on interstate 880. traffic is moving well north and south. 680 is slow. so can valley commute still looks good. let's go back to the task. president trump is going on twitter this morning to discuss proposals to improve school security. . >> the one possibility is to let teacher carry guns in the classroom.
you are getting reaction when you hearing alley ? . >> president trump says along with increased background checks and raising the age limit to 21 and banning bump stocks, the other id he suggested is arming teachers in the classroom and giving them the training they would need in order to use the training and weapons in the event of school shootings. in a tweet, he said allowing teachers to do that would allow them to fire back if a savage sicko came into a school with bad intentions. they will also serve as a deterrent at much less cost than guards. there are eight states that allow her to not prevent teachers already from carrying concealed weapons. california is not one of them. the people we spoke with had
various responses to the idea. then i do not think it is a good idea. instead of arming the educators, we should give them more support as well as put more money into school education. as well as policies on bullying. it could be a good idea. maybe to deter people, they know they will face opposition. we met mr. trump first thought of the idea of arming teachers during the campaign. mr. trump suggested arming and training about 20% of k-12 educators nationwide with add up to 640,000 people. the union that represents about 3 million teachers nature that
. >> nationwide examine the idea and they say that's the last thing students need is more guns in the classroom. that leads us to our question of the day, do you think teachers should be armed ? yes or no. vote on our twitter page. we would also love to hear your comments. this will generate a lot of conversation. we want to show you the results so far this morning. 70% say yes and 83% say no. police in san jose are looking for whoever is behind the latest case of "swatting". when someone calls the police and reports a fake crime to make the police respond.
. >> yesterday evening police rushed to a home on n. 11th st. near e. james st. north of san jose state. they got a call about an armed home invasion. please call to talk to me inside the home and asked if anyone was being held hostage in the man said no. as a precaution, the police ordered all five people walked out with their hands behind their backs. we just got swatted. i did nothing that would happen but that is the reality i am dealing with. . >> the original 911 call was a hoax. the victim thinks it may involve a dispute in his neighborhood. there appears to be a rising number of the swatting cases. it also drains police resources. the current and former members of the san francisco fire department are suing the city a
connection with sexual harassment scandal. the firefighters were reassigned to different stations two years ago after female firefighter accused them of harassment. she accused them of hiding her boots, spreading human waste on her bathroom floor and urinating in her bed. the firefighters denied the allegations and said the woman was having an affair with a battalion chief. the city attorney's office released a statement saying, the city has a legal and moral obligation to provide each employee with a workplace free from sexual harassment and termination. all actions taken were taken to ensure a safe workplace environment. bart police have released the entire video of a police officer who shot and killed sahleem tindle what was fighting with another man. in the video, they have highlighted what appears to be a gun that fell to the ground next to the leg of sahleem tindle. paul chambers reports that by releasing the video, the
entirety, it was released because the family of sahleem tindle released a clip the prior day. >> reporter: the officer runs across four lanes of traffic to where the men were entangled in a scuffle. the officer had his handgun drawn shouting commands. as the officer gets closer he shouts more commands and fires three shot. the family of sahleem tindle say they are happy that they released video in its entirety. . >> it is difficult for us to release video during an ongoing investigation. i want to emphasize that the loss of any member of the community is tragic.
and there are multiple ongoing investigations taking place. . >> he pointed out these photos in which officers used a yellow circle to show the weapon. . >> to me, it appears, it seems that the other individual is trying to take the gun away from sahleem tindle. that is the first time it shows that it is a handgun. we have posted the full body camera video of the shooting at our website, ktvu.com so you can look for yourself. click on the story right near the top of our home page. a new investigation in san jose in the sexual misconduct at a high school. coming up, why the police are getting involved after complaints that go back decades
and claims presentation high school and the harassment claims. if you are heading out of town we will tell you the airport which were most likely have your flight canceled. and defining middle class in silicon valley. the high salary some people are but they still consider themselves middle-class. es middle-class. right now, we see that the commute is getting busier. 80 is not a good commute at all. i might hear some complaints from people saying it is too cold tomorrow. and there are low snow levels. sorry. i can't make it.

will be doing instead of going to the white house. many of the players said they do not want to appear with president trump. they said that after they won the nba championship last year. that caused president trump to tweet that he was withdrawing the invitation to the warriors. espn says next tuesday the warriors will interact with a group of children in the dc area at an undisclosed location. head coach says he wants his players to have a good day into something positive. and on wednesday the warriors will play the washington wizards. . >> that seems like a nice thing to do. let's check in with villaraigosa for for traffic. we have a new deadly crash. we can put a map up of this. the oregon expressway, it is at west bayshore right before highway 101. you cannot get to the freeway going this way because of a crash.

all the water moving around. . >> that is a good observation and that is correct. let's get to it. if you have to get going, it is mostly cloudy and cool. highs only in the 50. we are looking south from san jose. our last rain was on 25 january. it is 27 days with no rain in san francisco. we are going to need a miracle march. the last one was 2016. and there is a history of miracle marches.
we are going to need a big time miracle march. san jose is only 45% of normal for the season. and santa rosa is 51%, we have is for a long time on these numbers. there is some on the play. i think the day is the day that it ends for san francisco. a cold system dropping in. 6-10 inches could fall at lake level and above. 30s and 40s are the temperatures. there is your breeze.
it's west at hayward and out to the delta. it was trending a little bit over land and water. a pretty good snow into tahoe. we will take it. upper 40s to the north and cold tomorrow morning. i would expect rain later next week. it will cost $12 billion but that will not stop bart from dreaming. how they can help customers between san francisco and the east bay.
