it was last year. just in the last week or so, two san jose police officers were targeted and got very lucky. in that case, two gang members were arrested, the officers were unhurt but it could have ended very differently. just yesterday a police officer in detroit was shot in the head as he stopped a man near a university campus there. on sunday in texas, a san antonio police officer was shot in his patrol car as he was just writing a traffic ticket. according to the officer down memorial page, 58 officers have died by gunfire. 71% increase over last year. many of those have been ambush style or execution style shootings. that's the reason the san jose police association is putting out a commercial today. they revealed it to us in the last two hours asking where is the outrage when a cop is targeted for murder. >> we cannot come home at the end of the day. but the violence that we're seeing, again, almost daily, is

light. tuesday was very light, same thing for this morning. looking toward hayward we have a change in direction. the incident now reported northbound 880 heading out of union city up toward tennyson. we see slowing on the southbound, too. i'm told there's a traffic break and folks are being forced off the freeway at whipple. you may be able to get back on at tennyson. it does sound like a traffic break and a crash, pedestrian is mentioned in this. whenever something like that is a situation in hayward, we let chp do what they need to do. so far routing you off the freeway and back on just north of there heading toward highway 92, a problem out of fremont. you may want to take the dumbarton bridge across the bay. you see how light the traffic flow is in the vicinity. that will be an advantage. up next, the search is on for a group of armed robbers who attacked a man in san francisco at a popular tourist spot. we'll tell you where it happened. we're just one day away from

this is getting increasingly bitter. neither side wants to give in here. good morning. good morning sam and laura, the city of santa clara has given the 49ers 30 days to turn over financial documents that would show whether or not the team has withheld taxpayer money from the city. otherwise the city is threatening to take over management of levi's stadium. whenever levi hosts a non-nfl event, like a concert, the city gets a cut of the proceeds. the city is concerned the 9ers are charging taxpayers for expenses like resodding the field after a concert. the 49ers say they have never charged the city for that expense, the city wants proof. at last it in's meeting the 49ers refused to provide copies of those documents s, said it would be happen p i to show the city financials on non-nfl events but doesn't want to turn over copies and have proprietary information made public.
>> the act themselves, beyonce, cold play, nhl or wwe, they want to keep that information private. they do deals with every venue in the country. they do not want the boiler plate agreement out there for everyone to see. we're no different than any other venue. we believe that is critical to maintaining a successful business for the city of santa clara. >> we have city personnel information we don't submit to the public because it's proprietary nature. we would do the same with this information. >> 49ers president all guido said maybe the team could redact the information from the financial documents. the city heard testimony for three hours, not just 49ers, but taxpayers concerned over how their money is being spent. live outside levi's stadium in santa clara, bob redell, "today in the bay." 6:15 right now on your wednesday morning.
