6:32 am
neighborhood. i'm onward lane right now. but we know that they did shoot two suspects last night and we have reason to believe at least one of those suspects is dead because we just saw the coroner's van pull up here. the cops shot at two suggestion respects here in the neighborhood. one of the people that i spoke with that lives here says she believes the shooting went on in a vehicle. here's how she describes it. >> they searched for a long time. police officers all around the whole block aiming guns into yards. searching with flashlights, neighbors that lived closer to the incident that gunfire happened inside a car which may have been like why the sound is
6:33 am
different than what you might otherwise normally hear. >> there was also a third suspected involved in all of this. and that is what -- who police were searching for, for several hours overnight. that person they were able to take into custody a little bit after midnight but again, we didn't know exactly what happened with the two people who they shot. we believe at least one of them has died and we know also that police were able to recover several weapons here at the scene. frank? >> all right, anne makovec in oakland, thank you. it turns out arnold schwarzenegger two sons were born just a week apart. the son schwarzenegger fathered with mildred baena was reportedly born in october of 1997. one week after the birth of christopher schwarzenegger. mildred baena lives in bakersfield. the next-door neighbor is

6:35 am
via webcam and you can expect there will be probably some champagne bottles popping later on today. the new york stock exchange a lot of hugs and handshakes as they ring the opening bell. the initial offer is $45 a share and they are offering 7.8 million shares to generate cash. they are worth about $4.25 billion. and they were founded back in 2002. now, they are focused on and used mainly by business professionals as networking tools. they boast 100 million users and have executives from every fortune 500 companies. it's not about the number of connections but the quality of those connections. >> on linkedin the connections are much more directed 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
6:36 am
so a networking platform and more so a social media platform. >> reporter: so does this mean the floodgates are going to open up for ipos here in the silicon valley. well, it's hard to say about facebook, twitter and zynga but it's got people optimistic and they say that the tech sector is very fertile and that 2011 is going to be a great year. so they will be celebrating here at linkedin headquarters. they just say check twitter and facebook feeds if you can. people will be posting videos and pictures and they are encouraging big-wigs to do that. >> how about some of employees down there? have you been able to talk to anybody? pretty low key? >> reporter: low key. a few are coming to work this early. some of them support east coast clients. but they are getting out of their cars, going right into the doors, not saying move much. it's good morning, hello, trying to see if they are smiling but... it's hard to say this early. >> they are smiling. there is no doubt about that.
6:37 am

6:38 am
they are live over the bay bridge. and everything is great across the span. we have a beautiful day as the sun is coming up. the metering lights they have been on now but, you know, traffic is actually not too bad. it is definitely lighter than normal. though first accident in the morning, quiet commute. more to traffic in a bit including a check of mass transit. back to you guys. >> thank you. another huge lifting job ready to go today on the bay bridge at 10:00 this morning. the cable saddle will be put on the top of the suspension tower and then the cables will be strung across.
6:39 am
that's expected to take about a year. saving granny from the axe. >> looks like they did it. we just learned that a centuries old tree in san mateo county may be saved from the chopping block. kcbs radio's matt bigler reports. >> reporter: she is not getting chopped down. no construction will happen until at least next month. the chief of the san francisco public utilities commission will personally get involved in the dispute between granny and the water pipeline. he wants to find out why the utility decided the tree has it- to-go to make way for the pipeline. he is also apologizing to neighbors here about the way
6:40 am
they were notified that the tree trimming would happen on monday. neighbors were very upset that they say they were notified at the close of business last friday that the tree trimmers would be here first thing monday morning and that's when they mounted an all-out defense over the weekend to get the word out about granny. we talked to mary ann mulliner early. she says they see this tree as the matriarch of their community. >> this oak was one of the orange ancient forest oaks. it has value. it should have value to all of us. there are counties in the state where if you cut this down, you would be put in jail. >> reporter: nobody has been arrested yet but the utility is looking at two other options instead of removing the tree. the first one would be going under the tree. that might harm some of granny's root structures. so that's not necessarily the greatest option. the other is to go above ground to run that pipeline above ground at least for the extent
6:41 am
of where granny lives. the utility is not crazy about that option because of security concerns. this is a very important pipeline. it carries hetch hetchy water from the sierra to san francisco for all of san mateo county. it's structurally reinforced to prevent earthquake damage and so granny stands in the way of all that. but at least for now, no cut will go happen until at least june 6. that's the latest from here in menlo park. back to you guys. >> thank you. >> granny getting a little tlc. >> what about going around the tree? could they put a little diversion and go around it? >> reporter: i'm sure that's been looked at. my only guess is that because of the structure of the pipeline you can't just put a curve in it, i u joint and go around it. but i'm not sure. the two main options are under or above ground. and that's as much as i know about that. >> thank you, kcbs radio's matt bigler. finally matt gets a little good news. usually gets budgeted cuts or something like that. >> we did that story on monday
6:42 am
and i didn't think granny had a prayer but the neighborhood stepped up. 647. the most powerful celebrities in the world who knocked oprah from the top spot. >> tough times for tiger woods. the new low for his career coming up. >> we could all use a little extra cash. the top money wasters and how much they are costing you. >> the market opening 10 minutes ago. let's check the numbers. linkedin is linkedin now to the new york stock exchange. don't think that's having a big effect but so far, so good.

6:48 am
involving several cars and unfortunately our line of brake lights now includes some speeds under 25 miles per hour. and it's growing in those southbound lanes. once you get past a street heading toward 92 the san mateo bridge looks great. you can see there is no issues all across the span. it's about 13 minutes in these lanes in the commute direction westbound 92, 14-minute commute from hayward toward foster city and the peninsula. and coming off the high-rise things look great there, as well. we just got a call from steve with the kcbs phone force letting us know about a stall on the dumbarton bridge. sounds like it's a stalled taxicab actually. no backup yet. traffic still light heading into menlo park which is something to watch out for. so far no delay as you can do tell. cars heading towards the dumbarton bridge. nimitz 880 through oakland looks great in either direction past the coliseum. so a nice smooth ride in hayward towards downtown oakland. remember kcbs, our radio partners, at 740-am and 106.9- fm. back to you.

people. they arrested a third person and they have had this neighborhood blocked off since about 10:30 last night. i'm in the fruitvale area east oakland standing on ward lane right now at curran avenue behind me. this started around 10:30. police got a tip to come to the neighborhood because they heard some violence was about to erupt and they shot two people. neighbors say that the two people that the police shot were actually shot in a vehicle. and police have not given us a lot of information this morning. they have been busy investigating the scene. we have seen the coroner as van pull up here and leave. the two people police shot were taken to the hospital. so all word is that they have died at the hospital rather than here at the scene. but obviously a very harrowing night. neighbors here report hearing helicopters and seeing police going from yard to yard with guns pointed so a very scary thing for a lot of families
