5:01 am
ambulance. now, this all started from what we've heard after police got a tip that there might be some violence erupting here in this neighborhood. they came to the scene and again, did end up shooting two men here. they were able to arrest the two they shot at. ambulances then raced to the scene to check them out. there was then a third person who ran off to a yard. police believe that person was armed so they spent some time looking for him. finally arresting that third suspect as well and recovering several weapons here at the scene. i spoke with some neighbors here just a few minutes ago. we'll hear from her coming up at 5:30. but she said it was a very scary night after hearing these gunshots, hearing helicopters around the neighborhood. she was very relieved to hear, though, that all of the suspects have been taken into custody. >> thank you, anne makovec live in oakland. new bombshell details coming out now about arnold schwarzenegger's affair. it turns out that his secret
5:02 am
son and his youngest son with maria shriver were born just a week apart. the son schwarzenegger fathered with mildred baena was reportedly born in october of 1997. that was a week after the birth of christopher schwarzenegger. baena and her family live in bakersfield. their next-door neighbor has nothing but good things to say about the 13-year-old boy. >> really, really nice kid. it's a kid you want to have. you know? my husband's taught high school for over 35 years. and there's not too many kids like this. >> "people" magazine is reporting maria shriver has hired a divorce attorney but that she has not yet decided whether to officially end her marriage. new signs that injured giants fan bryan stow is improving. doctors have taken him off one antiseizure medication but stow's family says every day is still a struggle. >> it hurts to see him lie there is and not responsive to
5:03 am
a lot of things. but we still -- i still give -- there's still a lot of care for him. we love him and we talk to him. but it can be heart-breaking to see him there. >> stow remains in critical condition at san francisco general hospital. he is still on four antiseizure medications but doctors say his brain hasn't shown any seizure activity for 30 hours. the saddle will make the new suspension tower taller on the bay bridge. workers will put the saddle on the tower. then a cable will be strung across, will take a year. the cap will be put on top of that saddle and the cable and the tower will be done. >> our own looky-loo who traveled across the bridge and looked when he wasn't supposed to. >> we all do it. >> you try to it.
5:04 am
keep your eyes on the road but that thing is gigantic and you want to take a look at it. >> it changes every day. >> i can't go across that bridge every day or i get in trouble. we have some pretty nice weather coming our way today as low pressure finally gets out. we are between systems now. another one off the coast right here. we're in the sweet spot. lots of sunshine around the bay area today. starting with patchy fog early on. numbers running in the 40s and 50s at this hour. by the afternoon get a load of this. how about 70s in many spots inland. 75 san jose, 72 san rafael, 66 san francisco. you get the idea, we are in for a great day today. let's check the traffic with elizabeth. >> all right. thank you, lawrence. the dumbarton bridge westbound 84 roadwork wrapping up shortly approaching the high-rise of the dumbarton bridge. we had various lanes blocked.
5:05 am
possibly until 6:00. sounds like it may be just eastbound. westbound should be wrapping up. san mateo bridge quiet cross the span. chp reports are empty right now. not a whole lot going on all across the bay area. good news if you are leaving for work or school or wherever. eastbound 4 roadwork at loveridge has been picked up. even ahead of schedule. and for marin county commuters it's all green on our sensors almost empty across the span of the golden gate bridge at least where our camera is. overall nice easy ride from petaluma into san francisco. bart, ace, muni metro and caltrain all on time. remember kcbs, our radio partners, at 740-am and 106.9- fm. that's your traffic and weather. back to you. >> thank you. big day for the business world and especially down in the silicon valley. i think we would all like to be part of this if we could a social networking site going public in a very big way.
5:06 am
>> kiet do joins us live from linkedin's headquarters in mountain view as the company gets ready to make its initial public offering. kiet, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. down here in the silicon valley there's a buzz that it's the good old days of 1999 again and that is because this is the first major social media site in the united states to go public. this has people giddy about twitter and facebook and, of course, zynga. trading will begin at $45 a share for linkedin. at 7.8 million shares that is a boatload of money. the company is worth $4.25 billion. linkedin is the first networking site founded in 2002. and it is focused on and used mainly by business professionals as a networking tool. they boast 100 million users with executives from every, single fortune 500 company but if you are thinking about buying today, you're not going to see the red-hot growth in
5:07 am
the number of users. >> i don't think that we're seeing the same kind of daily rabid user base that we see in a facebook for example that you do everything on facebook, you're logging never day. to be logging in just once a week or whenever you get a message, that would be a concern for anyone who is investing. >> reporter: all righty. nonetheless, the question remains here, does this mean that there's going to be a floodgate of ipos? a lot of analysts are saying that the tech sector is very fertile at this point and that 2011 is going to be a good year. as far as celebrations, are they going to be popping champagne corks today? a press person said they will be celebrating after it calms down but they are expecting a exciting day here at linkedin in mountain view. >> thank you, kiet do in
5:08 am
mountain view. >> i looked up boatload. anything over $2.5 billion. he was right on the money there.

goodwin liu for the 9th u.s. u.s. circuit court of appeals based here in san francisco. the law professor is a liberal and republicans have enough votes to sustain a filibuster against him. senator barbara boxer supported liu yesterday on the senate floor. >> every, single thing the man has done has turned to gold. every, single thing he has done! everything he does, he's best at, he's best at! if republicans block liu it would be president obama's first defeat for a judicial nomination. 5:12. he passes himself off as a city worker. we'll tell you how a scammer is trying to take advantage of homeowners. >> plus a military plane crash makes a fiery crash-landing in southern california. the narrow escape for the passengers on board coming up. and everything looks great right now across the span of the bay bridge. but that suspense tower is getting even taller later on

the sun and it is looking good in the valleys. temperatures really going to warm up 2 to 9 degrees above yesterday's highs. lots of 70s inland, 60s inside the bay. at the coast, sunshine and clouds dancing along the coast. but we are going to see improved weather. that area of low pressure that brought us rain is heading east. behind that we have high pressure overhead. there is another storm system off the coast but we don't have to worry about that for the next couple of days. we are going to see the ridge of high pressure building in. that will bring mild temperatures over the next couple. then the low drops down. cooler temperatures over the weekend so enjoy the day. 75 in san jose. 76 cupertino. 73, sunshine, in mountain view. 69 union city. east bay numbers in the 70s in many spots inland, just a beautiful day. 68 in hayward, 66 berkeley, 65 and sunny in richmond. cooler temperatures coastside in the north bay into the 50s there. but by the afternoon, lots of

5:25 am
them as a routine procedure but some doctors say there are medical reasons to perform circumcisions. university of california students could face yet another whopping tuition increase in addition to the 8% hike that they already face this fall. uc officials say another 32% midyear hike is possible if governor brown's plan for tax extensions is not approved. basic tuition for uc undergrads who are california residents is scheduled to increase to just over $11,000 this fall. but then you add on that 32% hike, it would bring tuition to almost $15,000. wow. >> i hate to tell you what i paid back in the late '70s, early '80s. less than $1,000. >> i know. >> a year. >> going to be really tough. >> a year! >> kids and parents will have to make tough decisions. tonight, katie couric signs off from the cbs evening news. >> yeah. she finishes her five-year post as the network's top anchor. scott pelley as now a long-time

[ laughter ] >> no. i don't know. i'm not sure yet. i don't know what good advice is. i'm -- we'll talk during the commercial break, lawrence. [ laughter ]
5:31 am
>> a little -- yeah, i'm all verklempf. here's a live look at the bay bridge. traffic moving fine in either direction this morning so you were pretty good to go. we have had a very quiet start to our morning commute thus far. we'll take a check of mass transit in just a bit. in the meantime, back to you guys. >> all right, elizabeth. thanks very much. it is 5:31. an all-night manhunt on the streets of oakland. officers opening fire on two suspects, a third now in custody. let's go to anne makovec in the fruitvale area with the stash police recovered at the scene. anne, good morning. >> reporter: a lot of weapons, sydnie onward lane here in east oakland still closed down this morning. here's a look at the scene from arnold 10:30 last night. police are not saying a lot about exactly what happened. we know they shot two suspects though and at least one of them was not doing well soon after the shooting. so we are waiting for word on those suspects' conditions. they also arrested a third person, but they were here all
5:32 am
night because they were looking for ask the third person in several yards for several hours until they were finally able to find that third person after he took off running. neighbors barely got any sleep. >> then we saw the helicopter searching in the neighborhood for a really long time and police officers, you know, around the whole block aiming guns into yards, searching with flashlights. neighbors that lived closer to the incidents said that gunfire happened inside a car which may have been like why the sound was different than like you might otherwise normally hear. >> reporter: again, police then recovered numerous weapons here at the scene. but we are still waiting to hear the condition of the two people that they shot and exactly what led them to this location in the first place. but we have heard that some
5:33 am
sort of violence was about to erupt in this neighborhood and they headed it off anded up here and again, violence did end up erupting but it was at the hands of the police. >> thank you for the update, anne makovec in oakland this morning. schwarzenegger's secret son and his youngest son with maria shriver were born just a week apart. the son schwarzenegger fathered with mildred baena was reportedly born in october of 1997 and that was just one week after the birth of christopher schwarzenegger. baena and her family live in bakersfield. their next-door neighbor is impressed with the 13-year-old boy. >> a really, really nice kid. it's a kid you want to have. you know? my husband has taught school, high school, for over 35 years. and there's not too many kids like this. >> "people" magazine now reporting maria shriver has hired a divorce attorney but hasn't decideed whether to officially end her marriage. police want some help in

identifying the man who has robbed banks in san jose and milpitas just recently. his picture was caught on surveillance cameras here. the latest robbery was saturday at a credit union in san jose. same man believed to have held up the merry west credit union in milpitas on april 29. a big day for silicon valley startups on wall street. social networking site linkedin is making its own networking move going public on the new york stock exchange. kiet do joins us. >> reporter: good morning. we just learned that all the executives from linkedin are in new york for the bell ringing so they will have an all hands meeting after the bell ringing via webcam. you can bet that champagne corks will be popping. trading will begin in a couple of hours here on wall street at $45 a share. they are offering 7.8 million shares and that comes out to a
5:35 am
whole lot of cash. the company is expected to be worth about $4.25 billion. linkedin was the first networking site founded in 2002. it is focused on and is used mainly by business professionals as a networking tool. they boast 100 million users with executives from every, single fortune 500 company. for linkedin, it is not about the number of connections but the quality of those connection. linked in the connections are much more direction. and they are typically there for a reason in terms of the benefit that people get from a networking relationship so linkedin really is a networking platform where facebook is less so a networking platform and more so a social media platform. >> reporter: so does this mean the floodgates will be opening for social media ipos? well, it looks like the tech sector is going to to be
5:36 am
fertile in 2011. the celebrations they say will be private but they are encouraging their employees to tweet about this so if you watch the twitter feed you will likely see video and pictures of the celebrations today. frank? >> some very excited employees to be sure down there i would imagine. okay, kiet do live in mountain view, kiet, thanks. >> congratulations to them. it is 5:36. let's get a look at traffic and weather. we are going back to lawrence who is giving us a great forecast. lots of sunshine out there. looking forward to that, lawrence. >> yeah, guys. should be a much improved day around the bay area. how about this to start out your day? remember yesterday we had rain outside today we are starting out with mostly sunny skies. we have some patchy fog showing up out there. but by the afternoon, we are going to see plenty of sunshine and that's going to allow the temperatures to begin heating up. yesterday a lot of 60s out there. today watch what happens. high pressure building in. you get sunshine and here comes the 70s in many spots. 75 degrees, 7 degrees warmer in san jose. 76 in concord, that will be 9
5:37 am
degrees above yesterday's high. 72 degrees in fremont. that's 7 degrees warmer. and even san francisco getting warmer, so you get the idea we have some nice weather coming our way. changes for the week especially coming up. elizabeth has traffic. >> we have had a very quiet commute. conditions approaching the bay bridge toll plaza, metering lights still off. really delay-free all the way across the upper deck heading into san francisco. same thing on the san mateo bridge. most of the roadwork is gone. no incidents, good to go, drive times steady across the bay area. kind of where they should be. six minutes right now if you are commuting through the silicon valley ride westbound 237 from 880 towards 101. and for the trip along the peninsula, 101 moves fine from san jose all the way up into san francisco. 280 looks good, as well. mass transit, bart has about 40 trains all running on time. back to you. >> thank you. little bit of heavy lifting ready to go today on the bay bridge.
5:38 am
this morning workers will be putting in that cable saddle on top of the suspect tower. it's the largest such saddle in the world. then the suspension cable will be strung across it. that's expected to take about a year. and then a cap will be put on top of the saddle and cables and the tower will be complete. slowly but surely doctors are seeing a little more progress in the recovery of giants fan bryan stow. they have taken him off one antiseizure medication but he still remains on four others. stow remains in critical condition. doctors say his brain though has not shown any seizure activity during 30 hours of continuous monitoring. 5:38 now. barry bonds will not be in court tomorrow as scheduled. a post-trial hearing in his perjury case is rescheduled for june 1. the former star was convicted last month on one count of obstruction of justice but the jury deadlocked on the three or counts. prosecutors have not said whether they will retry bonds on those charges. on capitol hill, republicans appear on the verge
5:39 am
of blocking a uc-berkeley scholar from getting a spot on the federal appeals court. president obama nominated this man, goodwin liu, for the ninth u.s. circuit court of appeals based in san francisco. the law professor is considered a liberal and republicans have enough votes to sustain a filibuster against him. if republicans block him, it would be president obama's first defeat on a judicial nomination. 5:39. two cal grads arrested in iran, this morning why their moms are sacrificing their own health. and heart stopping drama for this bride-to-be. the devastating news that nearly made her jump off a building. tell you about that coming up.
5:40 am
5:41 am
vicksburg, mississippi. but forecasters now say the crest
5:42 am
was not quite as hig expect the mississippi has reached record levels in vicksburg but the crest is not quite as high as expected. north of vicksburg a levee protecting thousands of acres of farmland is expected to prevent widespread flooding but down river in louisiana, mandatory evacuations are in effect in areas being flooded as more gates at the morganza spillway are opened. >> back here in the bay area we have some more sunshine coming our way. temperatures are going to be warming up today. couple of patches of fog out the door this morning but boy, these numbers running in the 40s and 50s. by the afternoon it will be spectacular. lots of 70s very comfortable toward the afternoon and much warmer than yesterday. a lot of 60s inside the bay with sunny skies, breezy conditions, couple of patches of fog on the coastline otherwise looking good. this area of low pressure brought us rain yesterday is heading eastward. you can see in nevada, colorado, they are seeing showers there and they will continue to do so. we have high pressure over california and that ridge of high pressure will continue to build over the next day or so and that means we are going to
5:43 am
stay high and dry. and we are going to enjoy some beautiful spring weather outside although as we head toward the weekend things change again. temperatures today how about this? 74 degrees and sunny in sunnyvale. 76 in cupertino. 72 in palo alto about 68 in san mateo. toward the afternoon hours, much of the east bay 75 degrees in walnut creek about 74 in san ramon and 75 degrees in pleasant hill. north bay temperatures sunny skies in most spots and here we go with the 70s, 73 degrees in novato, 76 in petaluma, and 72 degrees in san rafael. so next couple of days, probably the best of the next seven. you are going to see plenty of sunshine coming your way and some very comfortable temperatures. over the weekend, though, the clouds begin to move in as early as saturday. the temperatures start to cool off. more cooling, more clouds on sunday with a slight chance of a few sprinkles. all right. let's get a look at the traffic now with elizabeth. >> coming into san francisco right now, up 101, a camera
5:44 am
near third bayshore everything is quiet. you can see that looks great. 101 and 280. smooth through san mateo county. let's check the south bay. so far, so good busier now in the northbound lanes of 280 as you approach the 880 interchange. but that's quiet all the way down through cupertino. prince performing tonight at hp pavilion tonight and saturday. tonight at 7:30 so extra congestion across that stretch. but again, you are good to go for right now coming up 101 from morgan hill, no big delays. silicon valley commuters westbound 237, nice and light. this typically doesn't start to back up to closer to 7:00 but for right now you are good to go in all lanes. you can see that our live traffic sensors up and down the nimitz from hayward to oakland showing us top speeds. these are live traffic sensors picking up driving conditions as they happen. here's live look. if you are catching a flight to
5:45 am
