targeted at a starbucks. this morning the first time, we are hearing the dispatch recordings of those frightening moments. a few minutes ago pete spoke to a person who heard the shots fired. >> good morning. we talked to that person exclusively. she was just walking in to get coffee and heard shows shots fired last night. >> they tried to ambush us at the starbucks. >> this happened around 9:00 p.m. last night. police say the suspect's gun
malfunctioned and that's when the suspect pointed it at them. when officers drew out their weapon for protection, he ran toward nearby magazine street where they chased him down. the suspect still posed a threat. that's when officers fired those three shots at him. he was sent to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. that woman said she was staying at a nearby hotel when it happened and says she heard more than three shots. >> we heard seven shots like a clip, a large caliber clip. it was like retaliation fire, but a lesser caliber sound. >> the suspect was found to be carrying an additional hand gun.
vallejo pd will hold a news conference later this morning. >> very dramatic there. thank you very much. 5:34. this an emotional one for so many people. for several years now and a handful of days, the sierra lamar murder case will move forward. jury selection expected to begin for the man accused of kidnapping and killing her. you've been reporting on this case for years and the trial is finally starting. finally the day sierra lamar's family has been waiting for. selection of the jury who will decide the fate of torres. it will not be a fast process. this is a death penalty case. that means the process will be much slower than most other
cases. the first order of business is polling potential jurors. the judge will decide which make a legitimate case for hardship. meaning they can't afford to sit on a jury for weeks, if not months. those potential jurors will fill out questionnaires. both sides will use the response to disqualify a juror or keep them on the jury. first question is how they feel about the death penalty. legal analyst stephen clark tells me a jury pool who has no reservations about the death penalty would be a conservative jury pool and more likely to convict. sierra lamar disappeared on her way to school in 2012. torres was arrested days later. sierra's body has not been found but dna evidence links torres.
all other cases requiring the death penalty including this one, also richard allen davis will be grandfathered in. that's prop 52 on the november ballot. >> thank you very much. 5:36. a follow-up on a triple shooting over the weekend. sonoma county sheriff's department says one man was killed while two other victims are being treated right now. despite posts on social media claiming otherwise, no arrests have been made. investigators say they have solid leads on the suspect. that shooting happened along 116 just after 8:00 saturday night. putting more officers on patrol to prevent suicides is the new plan on the golden gate bridge. here is a live look at that
iconic span. five new police officers are expected to begin patrolling two months this year there have been 138 successful interventions on the bridge. officials say the increase of successful interventions is directly related to having more officers on patrol. today marks 27 years since the loma prieta earthquake. images of destruction instill fear in people's minds. the quake ravaged part of san francisco's marina district. everyone jumped into action to try to help. the quake injured more than 3,700 people. 63 people died. the usgs puts the odds at about 70% that another earthquake that size or stronger will strike the bay area at some point over the next three decades.
some warn such a quake could have the potential devastate the bay area economy. to mark today's anniversary, usgs will present new findings on the companies, workers and potential risk. the loma fire. rain left homeowners concerned about the potential for mud slides. especially in the area recently scorched by the wildfire. we did see lots of local flooding and smaller rock slides around the roads there. strong wind gusts toppled trees. >> i'm concerned about the people. it would be terrible if they got floods right after it. >> as much as a foot of rain fell over the weekend. three days of on and off
rain made for messy conditions on the roadways. drivers faced flooding. standing water from a clogged drain wreaked havoc. >> we ran into a really big pocket of water on 101 where the exit used to be. that stopped everybody on the right side. >> getting off king street there is flooding. i've seen people hydroplaning. >> the storms had crews busy all weekend. more than 20,000 pg&e customers were without electricity. how much longer can we expect the rain? can we dry out a little bit? let's check in with meteorologist rob mayeda. >> we can expect to dry out. 10 inches of rain. the reservoir more than 3.5 inches of rain. a few more scattered showers. you see that around sunol and san jose. we call for one more day of

happened.
