4:01 pm
>> reporter: just within the last half hour we've learned that this fire him of the building behind me began on the first floor on the front, this is the latest construction fire and the building owner is convinced that this fire was intentionally set. it's happened yet again, flames engulf an unfinished building in oakland, the latest fire broke out at the three-story complex on stanford avenue near the city line at about 10 thursday night. >> all the sudden we saw that there was thick flames and, a lot of heat and we got the baby and got out on the street as quickly as we could. >> reporter: building owner tony wilson says the old printing shop was being converted to nine live working units. investigators may be setting their sights on at least one person of interest.>> the construction crew was here last night picking up tools out of the building to go do a job.
4:02 pm
when this started. and one of them talked to a stranger who had come up to him and asked for a cigarette. >> reporter: wilson believes this was arson. >> i'm 90% sure it was intentional. it wasn't spontaneous combustion. fundamentally it makes me very sad, i assume some, somewhat i don't know, unstable person would have done it. >> reporter: investigators are not jumping to conclusions. as they begin to pick through the charred frame and debris. >> everything is on the table in regards to coming up with inaccurate cause. >> reporter: officials are not leaking this fire with a string of suspicious fires at larger construction sites in recent years. >> as of right now, we have no information to show any type of any type of relationship with this last night and pass incidents.>> reporter: there was enough concern that oakland fire chief stopped by the scene. atf agent barbara maxwell was among those from the federal agency, scouring what's left of
4:03 pm
the building. maxwell investigated the deadly go shipped buyer and oakland and testified at the trial. >> reporter: they may rebuild as long as they find the funds to do it all over again and after he cleans up the mess. oakland police are investigating a homicide that happened in east oakland overnight, officers who recall that to bancroft avenue near hunters avenue after midnight, believe they found a man who was down on the ground, first responders tried to revive him. he was eventually pronounced dead at the scene. they have not released the name of the victim. sheriff's deputies are looking for the gunmen who shot and wounded a person outside of a liquor store, the gunfire was reported just before 8 pm last night in front of the liquor store and unincorporated north hayward. multiple shots were fired and
4:04 pm
our cameras spotted a bicycle left on the ground along with evidence markers, just outside of the store. the sheriff's office told us the victim was a young man. he was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. sheriff's office released this a photo of weapons, thieves during a bus, targeting east bay gangs. there are 25 guns in all, the alameda county sheriff's office says the weapons are tied to drug trafficking at that the recitation is ongoing. raider nation i am here in napa trying to get to work baby. like a butter by, sting like a bee. >> that's antonio brown making a scenic entrance to training camp in napa, paying homage to the famed wine country hot air balloon rides . just sort of floating in the air there. the beginning of the football season is really just around the corner here. and brown is hoping to
4:05 pm
highlight a high-powered raiders offense this year. >> the 49ers have high expectations, players arrived training camp in south bay and mike shanahan at an update on store quarterback so let's talk about all of this with sports anchor scott reese. >> that's how scott comes to work every day.>> all 32 teams now present and accounted for but lots of good incidents. the 49ers are considering of the story the season last year pretty much ended in week three when jimmy garoppolo tore his acl. the silver lining is because he got so early in the season, he got some work in during ota, he shook off the rust and looks great. and now he says he is fully healthy and ready to pick up where he left off.>> it's officially official, we are good to go. >> how do you feel physically?
4:06 pm
>> i'm happy where i'm at. thank god it was a very successful summer. i got a lot done, a lot different things he wanted to work on. it's coming together now. >> he was doing seven on seven for all the ota's so he's been pumped to get in front of the defensive line so he's more than ready to go. >> even though he's a full go in training camp, he's not expected to play in the preseason opener, jimmy garoppolo 6-2 at a starter, the 49ers gave him a boatload of money and suffice it to say, this team will go about as far as he takes it.>> what you think, not to put you on the spot but raiders, 49ers, who is much of the better season?>> you know, i think both are high beta come you could make a case for success and the other side of the coin.
4:07 pm
you look at the 49ers and i didn't realize it but they were middle of the pack often simply and defensively. so if jimmy garoppolo makes the difference we expect him to make, they get some production out of the running backs , all the sudden instead of 15 and your eight or ninth and then the defense gets that much better you could be playoff teams so both teams have the playoff ceiling but they both have work to do. >> back to training camp, some of the sleepers we should be looking out for, are there some on both teams that are sort of peaking people's interest? >> i think for the 49ers, all eyes are on jimmy garoppolo the guys in the backfield , mckinnon was the one they sign last year and he blew out his knee and him play so what you get there? they bring in a guy named coleman who is a timeshare guy with the falcons. a good running backs of the 49ers have a lot of bodies and matt comes back is the incumbent. a lot of guys can produce in the backfield and that can bear watching in training camp. the raiders, new receiving core and same quarterback with derek
4:08 pm
carr so they could put up a lot of numbers but of course, with the raiders you also have that ancillary storyline that is the last year and this college and all that so they will be playing from day one. there on hard knocks this year.>> under the microscope for sure. >> we will get a lot of good things. >> i think hbo will get some good things. thanks scott. we want to shift gears here and talk about the weather. it is mild out there today for a lot of folks but we are going to crank up the heat. outside the doors this afternoon, cooler for most, a beautiful day in and around the bay area but as we mentioned a moment ago, the heat will be on a time for the weekend. we have an advisor to talk about. here's a look at the numbers at this hour, sfo in the 60s and downtown san francisco 64, i don't know if you could see but

4:16 pm
strongest and possible case could >> reporter: speaker pelosi sitting down with one of the most outspoken and well-known members of her caucus. freshman from new york. in the past, the lawmakers have had public disagreements. >> it was a positive meeting and productive. >> when it comes to the house judiciary committee's lhasa, chairman nadler says it is up to the house to hold the president responsible. adding the committee will try to enforce a subpoena for former white house counsel, don mcgahn. the second round of democratic debates is getting close, they are scheduled for next week on tuesday and wednesday in detroit. of course the candidates started to set up their platforms and working to stand out from the very large crowd involved in these campaigns.
4:17 pm
lyrical reporter alex michelson joins us live from los angeles and alex, good to see you. you had a chance to sit down with senator bernie sanders to talk about his medicare for all plan among other issues. does he feel like his messages heading home in california?>> reporter: of course he does, of course many californians got very familiar with senator bernie sanders. you talk about the crowded field, last time in the california race it was basically just him and hillary clinton and now is competing with 24 other candidates for attention. he's is still drying big rallies and at the center of his message, which is the big debate now, is despite over medicare for all, senator sanders wants to get rid of private insurance. we talked about that.>> right now, the strongest defenders of the current dysfunctional healthcare system are the drug companies and the insurance companies because they make billions and billions of dollars from profits every single year. and they are prepared to spend hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars to maintain
4:18 pm
the current system. you are right, we are going to have to take on them and we want to take on trump and take of the republican party and some democrats. if you look at the polling out there, more and more americans understand that the current healthcare system is absolutely dysfunctional. we have over 80 million americans who are uninsured or underinsured. we pay by far the highest prices of the road for prescription drugs and we end up spending twice as much per person on healthcare as people in any other country. we are losing 30,000 americans every single year, who do not go to the doctor when they should because they don't have health insurance or their copayments are too high. that's insane. i think what the american people want is a simple system my system that will cost them less money, system-level guaranty healthcare to all people and that's what medicare for all does. >> reporter: not all democrats
4:19 pm
agree with that could we talked with mayor pete buttigieg yesterday and he's one of the candidates who says i would like to have medicare for all who want it. he wants to keep private insurance, joe biden want to keep private insurance come he says we need to have obama care to try to strengthen it not throw it out. so that really is the biggest policy difference between all the democratic candidates. we will see that on display. penny, bernie sanders will be on stage with them and then a night two, once again we will see joe biden and senator harris next to each other so that is interesting and we have katie porter who is become a standout member of congress for the democrats, we're talking one-on-one with her and a debate between john cox he ran for governor of california as a republican and stephanie miller, the longtime radio host , john cox gives a great to gavin newsom and how he is doing so that is interesting as well. >> i look forward to hearing that, let me go back to mayor pete because like bernie he was down in southern california yesterday and you know, a lot of folks have talked about
4:20 pm
mayor pete struggling i should take him to make inroads with the african-american community. does he feel like he's making some headway there?>> reporter: he is trying, this is something else that bernie sanders struggled with four years ago. it was probably the reason that bernie sanders did become the nominee, he struggled in south carolina with african- americans. mayor pete, we were with him yesterday at a co-working space in crenshaw, with the bunch of young african-american students who just happened to be there, it wasn't even set up and they started talking to him about facing racism and be called the letter inward. he really opened up when he was asked about that he started to tear up talking about their pain and about the fact that this isn't needed in america. he said in order to break through with african-americans he needs to spend quantity time and that's part of his plan. he talked about the fact that much of the time will be spent
4:21 pm
here in california because the primary is so important can we saw mayor pete spending time in northern california this week as well. >> all the candidates coming here and spending some quality time and some quantity time. right alex, we delete the conversation there, appreciate it and again your full interview with senator bernie sanders will air tomorrow on the issue is, at 6:30 a.m. here on ktvu and that is followed by the weekend edition of mornings on 2 , from 7 am to 10 am. we go to puerto rico where more celebrations this afternoon taken place, stemming from the resignation of ricardo rossello, he will step down next friday after days of protests following the publication of offensive online messages that he shared with top aides. the protesters in san juan are now turning their attention is to rooting out political corruption. >> reporter: having force governor ricardo rossello to resign, puerto ricans are dealing with the fallout. >> this is going to, this was you know --
4:22 pm
>> the celebrations continue here with people saying they want to clean house and go after others associated with his corrupted administration. >> the people have given a message to the politicians of our country that if you mess with us, we will get rid of you. that's the idea. >> reporter: feeling the heat, the governor and waiting, the secretary of justice wanda vasquez, she should fully investigate the trucks meant for victims of hurricane maria. she released a statement saying the desire and agenda of some to try to undermine my credibility at this moment of transcendental importance to puerto rico and destabilize the government's order is evident, which only attempts to perpetuate instability and restlessness in the country. meanwhile, fema announces that effective immediately the commonwealth of puerto rico must receive approval from the agency to draw down all grant funds for hurricanes irma and maria. in a statement, fema says additionally, the drawdown

4:25 pm
the economy slowed do you want -- slow to 2.1% per the commerce department says gross domestic product the ease from
4:26 pm
3.1% growth in the first quarter, the government also revise growth for 2018 down to 2.5% from 3% but consumer spending last quarter jumped to 4.3% after gaining just 1% in the first quarter. wall street was back to the winning ways on strong earnings from google and twitter. the dow was up 51 points, the nasdaq gained 91 to close at a new record high and the snp finished up 22 points also sending a new record. i enjoyed by james mcbride and a little good news or little bad news in today's gdp report contacted me about the strengths and weaknesses. >> the strength was the consumer, like you pointed out, 4.3% and that makes a lot of sense. we have the lowest unemployment in 50 years. consumers are very confident, wages are rising about 3% year- over-year and consumer spending is two thirds of our economies of those numbers make sense and the consumer is very strong.
4:27 pm
>> the weaknesses? >> the weakness was business spending was down 5.5% which is troubling. a lot of manufacturing was down as well.>> okay, i want to talk about the underlying numbers in this report, what does it say about expectations, on part of the federal reserve, are we looking for the potential of interest rate cut? >> we sure are can we saw stories on the wire that said economists think there is 100% chance, and of the government seen that before, 100% chance of an interest rate cut next week, the only undecided factor is 50 basis points or 25 basis points. 3% says two more cuts this year. >> tell me why people at home should be paying attention. >> that's a great question because a lower interest rates get access to so many more opportunities to more and more consumers. for example of the interest rate is low, that puts a lot of mortgages within the reach of folks that are trying to write on the edge or maybe even buying a new car.
4:28 pm
lower interest rates are really important and very beneficial to the economy. >> released today the numbers have some factors that are weighing on the economy, what are some of those? >> trade and tariffs. the two largest economies going to head to head and is not doing anybody any good. it hurts our economy and the chinese economy and it hurts the world economy. i think we suffer less in china and china probably suffers less then europe. but it is a downward force on the market but, it doesn't seem to be any prospects for inflation. i'm sorry recession i meant to say. >> that was going to be my next question, because there was some fears out there that we are in fact headed towards recession but today's report might, ellie soft and that approach a little bit but >> right we do have an interesting account between the stun bond market is higher yield curve and the bond market saying we don't feel confident about what is going on.
4:29 pm
you look at the stock market we have the dow up 16% this year and the snp up 20%. oh my goodness, the nasdaq is up over 25% this year so, somebody is right and 70 is wrong. >> it seems that this report was just what wall street needed. >> they did and they jumped on it and that's all have these record highs today on the nasdaq and the s and p and the dow is there. >> we will have to wait and see what the fed does next week.>> exactly right.>> thank you so much. police detective is credited with going the extra mile, later on, we will see why her colleagues say she answers the call for help even in her spare time. it's one of the largest food festivals in the country, coming up next, the president of the gilroy garlic festival joins us live to talk about all things garlic. wow!
