5:31 pm
robbery suspect after a police chase. it happened just before three this afternoon on eastbound highway 84 near arden would boulevard. this is new video just into our newsroom. we believe that the suspect was injured, but that hasn't been confirmed as yet. right now. we want to show you a live picture from the ground and again. that
5:32 pm
is the car that was involved, and you could see there is broken glass. there's a hat as he zooms in. you'll be able to see that and again. there's a big police presence there. investigating this is also causing a huge traffic backup right now, all lanes in the eastbound direction are closed. and from the looks of this investigation, it appears that they could be closed for some time. needless to say, that is causing an absolutely huge traffic jam. there are also areas area street closures in the area, and we know that one line on lee one lane is open in the west bound direction. so obviously, authorities are asking people to avoid the area as they process the scene again. just to recap here, the headline. police chase involving a robbery suspect there were gunshots fired. we believe the suspect may have been injured. we're working to get more information as we do.
5:33 pm
we'll bring it to you. now we want to go to the north bay where police there are revealing new information about a crash that we first told you about last night. they say the man who plowed into a homeless camp in santa rosa, killing a woman did so intentionally. ktvu tom vacar joins us now live tonight with why investigators say, tom, that this way. no accident. that's exactly what they're saying. what was initially just a bizarre santa rosa traffic incident now very much looks to be a murder investigation. santa rosa. police say they now know who used the car tuesday night to run over a homeless woman who died as she sat in front of a tent. the driver immediately fled the scene that we believe the suspect. this case is gonna be a clifford adams. he's in his late forties, and he is known to the transient community. it all begin with adam's and another man getting into a physical fight. we do know that the two male subjects i got any initial fight do know each other. they all know each other through potentially the homeless community that other men was
5:34 pm
taken to the hospital for treatment. the police don't know the reason they do know that the female victim and the assailant knew each other but not in a dating relationship based on the information we have at this point. we do believe that the suspects drove intention towards the woman and through the tents when the collision occurred after a fight that happened with another male victim prior to the collision occurring itself. we've covered a lot of homeless camp violence, often, fire agencies respond too many fires. some attributable to one resident burning out another, but there are some thefts and assaults, but experts say most conflicts are not violent. they're certainly is, at times. they're small disputes. people get angry at times. sometimes it's because their home was homelessness makes you angry, whitehead says, because of the lack of shoulder beds. most people live in camps for mutual protection in most camps, and i've worked as an outreach
5:35 pm
worker in the field, the level of violence is lower than you would expect. new york university found that while some homeless individuals can be violent, overwhelmingly, violence used by homeless persons is either in self defense or due to the rare, violent homeless perpetrator who attacks other homeless people. in fact, three santa rosa women who volunteered to help homeless folks in santa rosa told me they rarely see violence in the camps that homeless people are no different. for the most part than anybody else. in fact, there's whitehead. homeless folks simply don't have the doors in the walls to keep their lives, private. tom vacar ktvu fox two news? yet i'm just curious. police have any idea where that suspect might be? do they think he might be, you know, hanging out in another homeless camp. it's very
5:36 pm
likely, but they have gone. police told me that they had done to all of the regional homeless camps there not only to look, but they are really went there to tell people to be on the lookout for because this guy has shown a huge prepared. city towards danger. the reason he's not mobile is because his car obviously is evidence now has been impounded. so it's not very likely that he got very far unless he had some sort of accomplishment. accomplice and there's no proof of that whatsoever. all right. let's hope that police were able to track it down soon. tom vacar. thank you. california vaccination numbers are up 15.5 are up to rather 15.5 million. more than 287,000 shots are being given per day. 17% of the state's population is fully vaccinated about 5.5 million people, more than two million doses are on hand, which is an eight day supply, the country's second largest teacher's union is questioning cdc guidelines

of change and tighten the pressure radiant, so we're going to see a little bit more wind and we're going to see. temperatures really kind of come down because you see that system came from it came from the north. so it's so much cooler system. but with that said overnight lows on the mild side above freezing for all of us because of the cloud cover, certainly in a little bit of wind and then tomorrow san francisco. lunchtime 58 degrees end of the day in san francisco. 60 degrees mostly sunny and nice looking day, so you're thursday just cooler. that's the headline for thursday. friday the headline is warming up saturday, warming up sunday, warming up and then the further headline is where's the rain? so we're not going to see that we're gonna be dry for a couple weeks. well least a week and a half, maybe two weeks, which is a drag because of course, we are well behind rainfall average. and this is a state that really runs, not an oil. what does run oil, but it really runs on water, and that's how we you know the agricultural interests and everything involved in recreational interests, and we're behind by a good 40 over a good 50 60% behind where we
5:49 pm
should be in a lot of places, so there's the five day forecast weekend looks warm. saturday is the warmest day sunday, saturday and sunday. we could see some low eighties and that's not out of the question. for this time of year. i'll see you back here at six. the biden administration is considering a plan to create vaccine passports that would show a person's proof of being inoculated against the coronavirus, supporters of the plans say it could really help free up americans from overseas quarantine obligations and, in turn, get the travel industry moving again. but not everyone out of the covid task force is on board the role of the government. hold that data and to do that, this is absolutely gold mine of information that they can use to potentially exploit blackmail recruit, you know, compromise, similar programs are already in the testing phase in the private sector, the international air transport association is testing a version called travel past, and ibm has another
5:50 pm
called a digital health pass. there is a lot for us to discuss tonight on the vaccination front. welcome back to the show. dr monica gandhi, ucsf professor of medicine and thank you again for being here. i want to start with the confusion surrounding the astrazeneca vaccine and the lack of transparency here doctor really seems to have caused unnecessary doubts. yes um, something seems to have happened where the company didn't put it together. right on the what's called the data safety and monitoring board really were upset with. they put the data together and presented it to the u. s s. so on monday, we got good news. this looks great and then by the by the next morning we said, hey, we're neil gorsuch said. i don't like how they presented it. we're gonna actually think is released tomorrow. get the real data. i think it's actually still a good vaccine, which is what dr fauci has
5:51 pm
intimated to us, but they didn't do a good job putting it forth and that yeah, that does create doubts. i wish they'd done it, right? yeah. so how does this damage the effort to build public trust in vaccines? you know, one thing is that astrazeneca has been rolled out in the uk and kind of crazy, fast fashion like crazy fast and what i mean by that is it originated from theirs from the university of oxford, and they give out about at this 10.18 million doses in the uk and they put out data and it looks good. what i mean is after one dose, it decreased hospitalizations in scotland in a period, dude paper by 94. so at we think the vaccine works. i think it works well, but they're doing it all wrong in terms of putting out data. hopefully they'll correct that. and that will correct any damage that we felt from this company. the other companies have been totally above board. put it in right, sonia sotomayor any other vaccine and this one? i actually think it works, but they made a mistake. no doubt,
5:52 pm
okay, let's move on to the johnson and johnson vaccine. it seems as though there was a lot of publicity surrounding it obviously received that emergency use authorization. but where is it? yes there's this issue. um, that i think people are state serves quibbling over some of the details. i think about the vaccine, and, uh, i think this vaccine works really well, i think there's multiple reasons that it works really well. it. it prevents the most scary thing that could ever happen to you, which is severe disease from covid-19, 100% and it's one dope so it could be used very readily in situations like common shelters around on the street or you're in the hospital and you want to just get one dose and go, so i think we need to trust ah lot about the johnson johnson vaccine that we know works really well, not quibble over the data and use it. i mean, it's in texas against the scary this thing?
5:53 pm
yeah, there are certainly a lot of things appealing about that. johnson and johnson vaccine mainly that it is just that single dose. there isn't some good news to that we're learning about for people who have survived covid-19 gotten their vaccination and just how much they were able to build up their immunity, especially when it comes to these new strains. yes so we've gotten great news that even with these variants that it's both. there was a great people from jama, which is one of our premier medical journals that antibodies after you've been infected, or after you've been vaccinated work really well against the variance. we already knew that up t cells, which is the other arm of your immune system that they work well against the variants, so i think our concern that you're not going to be protected against these other circulating strains is going away. these vaccines are going to help you, even if you see another variant in the future. and all of this data is
5:54 pm
looking great. yeah, that certainly is what the evidence is pointing to. all right, dr. gandhi always a pleasure. thanks again for coming on this. thank you. private bodyguards are not just for the season executive or the celebrity anymore. i'm going bod through. your phone coming up, and we continue to follow the breaking news in fremont and officer involved shooting has shut down highway 84 in the eastbound direction. there is a massive police presence and traffic is basically at a standstill. coming up with six. standstill. coming up with six. we'll have a live emergency planning for kids. we can't predict when an emergency will happen. so that's why it's important to make a plan with your parents. here are a few tips to stay safe. know how to get in touch with your family. write down phone numbers for your parents,
