child or family member? police will only say -- >> the information that we received, we are confident that this was a targeted event for this residents. >> reporter: it isn't the first time there have been incidents at this residents according to the police spokesman doreen matthews. >> please have been out there in the last several months on different types of calls. at this point the details on those calls i don't have. >> reporter: matthews says police have leads and are following them. >> hercules police did interview the family. they canvassed the neighborhood. they do have substantial leads they are working on and they are hoping to make an arrest. >> reporter: neighbors declined to speak with us on camera but one woman said she was saddened to learn a woman had been shot but relieved to learn she survived. a man told us he didn't know what to make of it. he just moved into the neighborhood to get his family

northern california is gone. >> reporter: these guys are fishermen who came to the standing room only in half moon bay where local congress members wanted to put pressure on the people in charge of our water and fisheries. >> i'm horrified and i think most californians will be horrified when they realize that the salmon as a species is about to be obliterated. >> reporter: there has been a 97% decrease in california's fall salmon run. that's led to a federal disaster declaration and the commercial fishing season has been closed for years. >> so when i say this is code blew i mean it. i think we are at a tipping point here and i thank you it is important to raise everyone's awareness. >> reporter: but the plan of action hasn't been drawn. >> we are not in the position right now to be able to make a final decision. >> reporter: the bureau of reclamations and department of water resources want to do more studies. in the meantime the political

the marine mammal center caught her. she will be taken back to the center for a medical checkup. >> i think it looks healthy, just probably tired from the traveling from however far away from water to this point here. >> we find them up by sacramento and throughout the delta. it is not unusual. >> okay, but this sea lion has been rescued three times now. in may volunteers saved the sea lion in santa cruz county. same thing happened just two months later. she suffered from toxic algae poisoning in the past. that may be why she strands herself. the final salute to a bay area soldier killed in afghanistan. the tug of water over tax cuts. what lawmakers did and didn't do today on capitol hill. ,,,,,,,,

our government to raise taxes on anybody. >> reporter: if congress can't compromise taxes will increase for all americans on the 1st. >> it would cost an additional billions of dollars. >> the nays are 36. >> reporter: senators voted twice saturday. the fist proposal was to extend tax cuts for individuals making under $200,000 a year and married couples making less than 250,000. the other would have allowed taxes to rise for americans making more than $1 million a year. republicans struck down both proposals. they failed by seven votes. >> today's votes were an affront to the millions of americans that are struggling to find work and a clear signals democrats in congress still haven't gotten the message of the november election. >> reporter: president obama says he is ready to cut a deal with republicans. agreement will likely extend tax cuts to all levels but also
include some democratic priorities such as renewing jobless benefits for the long- term unemployed that just expired. >> we need to get this resolved. >> reporter: the president says he is confident a deal can be reached by the end of the year. terrell brown, cbc news. >> extending the tax cuts would increase the deficit too much but also in favor of extending unemployment benefits. >> if we don't renew unemployment benefits that's $1200 a month. a month that many of people are not going to see. so we have got to weigh what's critical. and then move forward that way. >> spears says if the senate does not reach a compromise agreement the tax cuts would then expire without any group getting an extension of tax cuts. bikeers, big balloons and bands spreading holiday cheer in the east bay today. street near lake merritt. even >> the oakland holiday parade this afternoon traveled from

outside right now kind of quiet out there. winds fairly calm in most spots. so they will sort of see gusts showing up out towards the coastline. more on the way. still some showers showing up. you bet. we have got a couple light showers out there right now. we had some activity earlier in towards livermore area. still seeing a couple of light showers in that direction. can see some of the showers there. south bay beginning to pick up moisture now as things beginning to move just a bit. showers moving into parts of san jose, morgan hill. santa cruz mountains as well. north bay? they have got scattered light showers in that direction too. not too heavy just yet. but that is all about to change as the storm system really makes its final approach towards the bay area. so, what can we expect? we will see strong gusty winds sustained around 25 to 35 miles per hour. out near the coastline gusting to 45. maybe even higher than that across some of the mountain tops. rain will be heavy at times. especially as we look toward tomorrow afternoon. that's when it will really get going and probably right in
through tomorrow evening, tomorrow night. snow going to be running very high at about 7000 feet with the storm system. subtropical in nature. the snow level will be running very high. temperatures a little too warm. still could see upwards of a couple feet. maybe three or four across some of the higher peeks. temperature fairly mild mainly in the 50s right now. i think around the bay area tomorrow not a really cold day. temperatures staying fairly warm. likewise around the state. you've got 50s, 60s around the central valley. right on the mountain tops above you you'll see lots of snow up there and more snow continuing on monday with that snow level lowering somewhat by tuesday if you want to get up there, sneak up there to do skiing that looks like the day to do. seeing a lot of clouds running up ahead of the system sliding in through the bay area. main event off the coast. this will be pushing onshore as we head in toward late tomorrow afternoon. so the rain and wind will be ramping up throughout the morning hours tomorrow. and by the afternoon the thing should really get going. so with that in mind let's check out our computer models throughout the night. scattered showers being picked up by the models. that's true as we will head on
through the night tonight. doesn't look like a washout tomorrow morning. not bad at all. we will notice the winds kicking in before the rain starts. noon time hour rains begin to fall quite a bit as we look towards the afternoon that's when it will get pretty heavy at times outside. very heavy as we head into the evening hours. probably will continue well into tomorrow night. temperatures expected to be in the 50s and few 60s. so not a cold day but definitely a wet and windy one outside. looks like the next few days showers will taper off. monday sunshine sneaking in by the afternoon. tuesday dry. could see showers moving in the middle of this next week continuing into thursday and possibly leftover shower on friday but this one coming in tomorrow probably the strongest storm over the next seven days. >> all righty. thank you very much, lawrence. gary is in for kim coyle tonight. all about football. it is. big college football today. say good-bye to the regular season. time to go bowling and no game bigger than the civil war.
