6:02 am
where the metering lights are on. just 24 minutes, but the maze also moves well. back to you. >> thank you very much. 6:01. we continue to follow breaking news. police in south san francisco investigating a deadly officer-involved shooting. it is still a very active scene this morning. today in the bay's pete suratos live at a news conference that we brought you just about 30 minutes ago with new information. police -- pete, what are police saying led up to this man being shot? >> good morning to you, laura. as you can see behind me, a very residential part of san francisco on the 3700 block of cork place. they're still working scene as we're learning the deadly officer-involved shooting involved a man holding a shotgun outside of the home that you're looking at. let's show you video of the scene earlier. this is information we got from south san francisco police. they got a 911 call roughly around 12:00 a.m. for a disturbance on this block where we're standing. when police arrived, they were
6:03 am
confronted by that man holding a shotgun. they repeatedly told the man to drop the weapon, but apparently, he did not comply. at that point, officers shoot that man. that man dying from those gunshots. it's under investigation. i asked them this, if the man pointed the shotgun at the officers or if he fired shots beforehand, but that's allinate investigation. we did get a chance to speak to the residents moments after the press briefing about the incident. here's what she had to say. >> i have been here for about 25 years. you know, i grew up here. it's really shocking. >> they say a man was in the middle of the street with a shotgun. >> oh, god. thankfully we were not out here. that's scary. >> fairly shocking for residents, indeed. you're taking a live look at the scene behind me. we're told one officer had minor injuries, but there are no outstanding suspects at this time. despite all the activity we see
6:04 am
here, we know the neighborhood has been deemed safe by south san francisco police. when it comes to the investigation, you'll have south san francisco police and san mateo county sheriff's office handling it. they're going to be out here for the next several hours conducting that investigation. we're live in south san francisco, pete suratos for today in the bay. >> thank you very much, pete. we do continue to track the latest out of manchester this morning. a look now at the memorial site that continues to grow as flowers and mementos have been placed down in honor of the 22 victims killed in that unconscionable terror attack on monday. >> with manchester, the world is in mourning from the empire state building to the eiffel tower to the coliseum in rome, and the tallest skyscraper in the world in dubai. the tributes to the victims continue to grow. >> in the last two hours, manchester police announced they identified all the victims, the youngest only 8 years old. >> in the meantime, police in manchester have arrested three more men in connection to the bombing.
6:05 am
more raids are under way right now as police search for more potential suspects. police say the suicide bomber, 22-year-old salman abedi, was born and raised in the very city he attacked. nbc news has also learned his family is from libya. he received training abroad by a terrorist organization. though his allegiance isn't clear. police also arrested his brother, but they have not ruled out the possibility he had help carrying out the deadly attack. while questions still surround the horrific attack, the city of manchester is sending out a powerful message. >> manchester comes together and stand strong. >> as for this morning, the people of england waking up to the new maximum terror level, critical, which means increased police presence and soldiers are being deployed at key locations. stick with today in the bay for continuing coverage of the manner bombing. coming up at 6:30, we'll see some of the photos emerging that
6:06 am
allegedly show the suicide bomber. >> in the meantime, president trump right now on his way to brussels this morning after a visit in rome to meet with the italian president and prime minister and nato leaders. >> president trump in another high profile meeting while you were sleeping. he met privately with pope francis. before their meeting, he also greeted the first lady, ivanka trump and her husband, jared kushner. the private meeting lasted less than a half hour. as parting gifts thrk pope gave trump his papal letter on the environment. president trump gave the pope a set of books, including one written by dr. martin luther king jr. the meeting was much anticipated given how differently the two leaders view world issues. >> back at home, a driver working for exrr is behind bars as he's accused of burglarizing homes in the bay while he was on the job. >> new this morning, kris sanchez is live in menlo park with the accusations this man is facing. good morning. >> good morning to you both. he faces felony burglary charges, and he'll be in front of a judge around 1:30 this

6:09 am
bay, 68 degrees. we will have another nice, cool day. but some clearing after the morning clouds and highs reaching into the low 80s in the tri-valley. compare that to the 90s we had yesterday. our temperatures heading in the right direction. 76 degrees will be the high in the peninsula today. east bay up to 69 degrees. 63 in san francisco. and after the clouds roll out of here in the north bay, you're up to 72 later today. we're taking a look ahead coming up in a few minutes, and mike is still tracking a new delays that may slow you down. >> may slow you down. no big deal. as welic at the map, the speed sensors great. just that build for the tri-valley, east bay, and typical for san jose as well. again, northbound 101, tracking the reports of a crash right at oakland road. as that vol oum of traffic builds, slowing for traffic into downtown san jose. we just heard about this shift. a ten-minute delay reporting out
6:10 am
of the station, some sort of equipment problems there. sounds like it's in the vicinity of the same issue. ten minutes reported there, but check your b.a.r.t. time. >> thank you. a lot of people planning on swimming in northern california rivers for memorial day weekend. >> in three minutes the streps search and rescue crews are taking to make sure they're ready to help people who are caught off guard by the dangerous conditions in the water. >> meanwhile, in washington, is the budget dead on arrival? we'll go through it when today in the bay continues.
6:11 am
6:12 am
6:13 am
it's 6:13. we have some clouds to start, but it will be nice and sunny today. a day to get out there and finally get some yard work done. and in los gatos, our temperatures will be in the mid 60s to start, reaching into the upper 70s today. still a little above our average high, but heading in the right direction. i'll have a look at cooler temperatures in the weekend forecast. that's coming up at 6:18. >> just after i reported it, we got the update. b.a.r.t. said they're recovering from the earlier equipment problem outside of the station. still have an issue out of daley city. minor delays. >> 6:13. a lot of people are expected to head to northern california rivers this memorial day weekend. but rescue crews say swimmers are not prepared for frigid temperatures, fast flows, and a lot of hidden currents. members of the drowning accident rescue team or d.a.r.t. have
6:14 am
been out training ahead of the long weekend. because of runoff on the sierra, the water at places is dangerously cold and moving quickly. rescuers say the conditions could be even more dangerous the best swimmers. >> when you get a real cramp, if you ever notice, your legs are almost paralyzed. the same thing happens in this cold water. >> crews will be patrolling the american and sacramento rivers all weekend. no one has drowned in that area since the mid summer of 2015. >> and laura, you mention it's a holiday weekend coming up here. sometimes when you save money, don't even ask questions. just be happy. the best weekend to plan a road trip, it turned out, because research data shows going into this memorial day, gas prices have dropped, they're more than 20% cheaper than the annual average going back to 2005. all things considered, they're still pretty high in the bay area. according to aaa, we're still paying $3.28 on average for a gallon of gas in spran. a little slower in san jose,
6:15 am
$3.19. >> it's 6:15 right now. one san francisco supervisor has a plan to fix the congestion problem in the city. jane kim proposing a ride share fee. she's proposing 25 cents per ride. it would apply to lifrt ander rides. circling and double parking is causing a lot of that congestion. >> uber did have a bit of an epiphany. it disovered they're not paying drivers enough money. >> uber will pay millions to drivers in new york city as the company discovered it had been underpaying drivers for years. each driver will get on average $900. this is not the first time uber has discovered that it was underpaying drivers. >> you remember that scandal that hit volkswagen cheating customers and regulators with software thatted emissions data?
6:16 am
fiat chrysler has now been accused of the same thing. the justice department says chrysler has used software in more than 100,000 cars to cheat emissions tests. the company says it has not. the dow gains again tuesday. the fourth day of gains in a row. nasdaq just in the positive. we'll get the minutes from the latest fed meeting later this morning. the house republicans get the cbo score on their health care bill today. the nonpartisan assist sesment of how much their plan is going to cost. this is super important because if the congressional budget office says the bill adds to the deficit, it changes the math you need to get enough votes to pass. instead of a simple majority, which republicans have, they would need the help of democrats to get their health care plan passed, and democrats are unlikely to vote on something that undoes obamacare. washington also examining the president's budget which has lots of interesting details, but neither side loves it. even republicans lindsey graham and mitch mcconnell have given it a thumbs down.
6:17 am
but budget director mick mulvaney said it will help people take charge of their own life by cutting the number of people on government assistance. it cuts $190 billion from s.n.a.p., supplemental nutrition assistant program. a lot of people on s.n.a.p. already do work. the other thing is two thirds of the people on s.n.a.p. are children or the elderly or disabled. >> people who need it. >> the most vulnerable population. >> a florida man opened his pantry to a slithering surprise. that was a four-foot python. an orlando man spotted the snake yesterday morning. firefighters had to use a pillowcase to capture the snake. the homeowner describes the startling discovery. >> i thought i was hallucinating. i told police, don't laugh when i tell you this. they told me it was somebody's pet, number one. and number two, you have to leave the windows and garage
6:18 am
door closed. >> lenny will never forget that lesson. doesn't he sound like rodney dangerfield. the pylon was taken to a local theme park and animal reserve. i'm sure they'll have like a naming contest. >> his own twitter handle. you know why he can take care of business there? because he's a new yorker. new yorkers know what to do when you see a python. >> just in time for breakfast. let's change the subject. it's going to be a very nice day. we're in for some morning clouds, but some afternoon sunshine, and it's wednesday, so we're almost to the long holiday weekend. this is the way we begin. looking live at the golden gate bridge. you can see the clouds and the fog there, and we'll see that once again moving out of here, and we start out at 54 degrees, heading up to 63 today. and it will be cloudy and drizzly to start for the morning in san francisco. and a cool day, highs once again
6:19 am
only reaching the low 60s there. the rest of the week, we'll see a repeat of this pattern with foggy mornings and sunny afternoons. we are now all in the low to mid 50s as you get ready to head out the door with high temperatures in the south bay up to 56 degrees in morgan hill. it's so much more comfortable today, compared to yesterday in concord, you were hitting 90. how about 79 degrees today? and 69 in oakland, and for the peninsula, we'll still have the low clouds and the fog at half moon bay to go right on the other side of the hills and in belmont, it's 73 degrees for the high. the embarcadero up to 63 degrees. pretty much like yesterday. point reyes will be at 59, while we'll have 75 in napa today, and feeling very comfortable. so if you're plan to spend the day with an early afternoon game at the coliseum watching the oakland a's, it will be at 63 degrees. then rising to thuper 60s. you need a hat, maybe some sun
6:20 am
block as the temperatures will be very nice. we stay in the low 60s over the next several days in san francisco. you see that pattern repeating over and over again. and for the inland valleys today, 80, but 77 tomorrow and the coolest day will be on friday, 74 degrees before a beautiful memorial day weekend. and mike says the commute is holding steady. >> holding steady, which means the bay bridge toll plaza still has the metering lights on and still 24 minutes from highway 4 to that scene up there. no major prizes for the east bay. tri-valley looks good as well. we'll zoom in to slowing in san jose as well. get you to the map where we see 680 holding steady south from pleasanton to sunol and over there for the castro valley y. as we look at the waze system, waze reports it's about 56 minutes if you're driving from castro valley to palo alto, across the dumbarton bridge as you cut through hayward, but add a couple more minutes and you can take a couple more routes if you want to and have the time.
6:21 am
you make the time to take your choice for waze. check that and make sure you're part of our team as well. go to the profile, click your name. you know the drill. tired of hearing me say it, but i know there are some who haven't joined nbc bay area wazers, especially longtime users, you have to change over to our team. >> it's easy to do, too. >> breaking news we're just getting word into our newsroom. major delays out of sacramento's airport. airport officials say computers are down because of a power outages, a network outage, i should say. this photo is from our sister station showing people waiting near the ticket counters. a airlines are having to check bags manually, the tsa checkpoint is however open. we're getting word of one-hour delays for arrivaling flights at sfo due to fog. >> up next, talk about the need. now a new blue print that could bring more affordable housing to one of the bay area's biggest cities. >> plus, when prizes rise
6:22 am
rapidly, we feel like we're being gourjed. we ask chris mora what we can do about that? >> when a store suddenly doubles the price of an item, it sure feels like gouging, but it probably isn't. state law says gouging only actually takes place during a state of emergency. that's after a disaster. now, if you see a price hike then, take pictures with your phone and report it to the attorney general. report your consumer questions to us, 888-996-tips. or -- they can build higher only if
6:23 am
6:24 am
6:25 am
they include affordable welcome back. it's 6:25. san francisco supervisors making a deal with developers they can build higher only if they include affordable housing. the board passed the legislation yesterday, allowing developers to build up to 20 feet higher in 30% of the units if they are affordable housing. supervisors say the move could add about 5,000 new affordable units over the next 20 years. some consumer news to get to. a recall for parents to look out for this morning. thousands of dynacraft ride-on toys are being pulled from shelves. the company is recalling the toys as the acceleration pedal can stick. can cause a child to fall or crash as a result. take a good look at these. dynacraft has received 19 reports so far of pedals sticking including seven reports
6:26 am
of injuries, most are minor like cuts and bruises. >> a smartphone wars appear to be heating up. apple launching a new campaign to lure away android users. a new section on the website is trying to get people to make that switch. it features the headline, life is easier on the iphone. by the way, globally, android devices outnumber iphones by about three to one. >> it could be a case of a breaken the case of an uber driver. >> the developments in the search for the missing man. a flight to sfo evacuated due to an engine near. the questionable behavior of some of the behavior of the passengers trying to get off the plane. you're watching today in the bay.
