few oakland pd cruisers as well as nearby cars. no officers were injured. inside the car you had five people in there. we're being told that one person died according to oakland pd and the others have been transported to a hospital for their injuries. the car involved in this accident was unrelated to the scene that oakland pd was already attending to around 10:00 p.m. i'm being told that oakland pd will wrap up this investigation in about an hour and the scene will clear pretty soon guys. >> all right, thank you, pete, bringing us the latest. active morning out there. well-known bay area filmmaker under arrest, accused in a deadly shooting. relatives of the victims say it started with a dispute. the incident unfolded yesterday afternoon in san francisco's glenn park. the man under arrest is documentary filmmaker and activist kevin epps who has won awards for films on san francisco's hunter's point. the victim is identified as marcus polk, senior.
5:06 am
we spoke to the victim's son yesterday who said his father would periodically stay at epps' home. he said the two got into an argument about a woman that quickly escalated. >> my dad made a lot of folks at other people's expense. there was never any hostility. it was more like he'd point out the uncomfortable truths. police so far are saying little about the investigation. the exact charges against epps hs not been announced. as the storm moves in, work will continue to remove this huge tree that toppled into an apartment building in berkeley. the 50-foot tree fell over about 3:30 yesterday afternoon. fortunately no one was hurt. there are reports of a few branches damaging cars. one person we talked to described the crash as feeling like an earthquake. one city staffer suspects wind was the cause. more sign of that, laura, in santa cruz as well. strong winds and rain took down large trees there in the santa

cruz mountains. in some cases homeowners were on the wrong side of bad luck. in one case a 90-foot oak tree crashed down on a home in boulder creek. we spoke with a homeowner who said it could be a lot worse. the tree struck another tree on the way down. >> if it slowed down its speed which was good, it also changed its trajectory. otherwise it may have come right through the bedroom and the bathroom. >> wow, could have been a direct hit there. today homeowners should have a bit of a chance to recover before the next round comes in tomorrow. >> when is that next round coming? let's take a live look outside right now. you see the golden gate bridge there on the top of your screen. san rafael as well. a wet start to our tuesday morning. how long is it going to stick around? >> depending on where you are, it looks like the south bay not seeing a lot. san rafael and north bay seeing quite a lot. wind speeds 20 to 30-mile-per-hour gusts. san jose missing out on the
