6:00 am
morning than we had yesterday. >> yeah. >> i think most, are. >> most people are say enough! we have sunshine coming our way this morning. a few clouds moving across our skies, cooler than normal, comfortable. 69 in concord, 68 in san jose, mid-60s in san francisco and oakland. there is still a hint of rain in the forecast. we'll talk more about that in a minute. first elizabeth has traffic. >> thank you, lawrence. we'll show you a live look right now at the nimitz. 880 through oakland, thank you, he is making a path for me, 880 through oakland near the coliseum. you can see no problems, no issues, southbound traffic looks great if you are heading down towards oakland airport past high street and about 15 minutes from hayward towards downtown oakland. we'll have more traffic coming up in the meantime, back to you guys. >> thank you. right now crime scene investigators at the scene of a deadly shooting in east san jose. >> they are. kiet do on what we just learned from police and what they are using now to look for clues. he joins with us more. good morning, kiet. >> reporter: good morning.
6:01 am
yeah, we're unusually close to this crime scene out here. i want to have don push in here. he's hiding behind the tree but look closely, that's something that i have never seen before. that's a crime scene technician using a metal detector to go through the grassy knoll to look for presumably metal objects. from what neighbors say, several shots were fired out here so there is a good chance he is looking for shell casings or for the shrugs themselves. very busy morning for crime scene investigators. this thing got started about 1 1:00 today. this were here all morning long combing the scene at one point on hands and knees with a flashlight looking for clues. they were poring over a white volkswagen to get evidence to figure out what happened. calls came in about 10:30, 11:00 of shots fired. they found a man in the street, he died at the hospital at 11:24. we spoke with a man by the name of jesus and he describes what
6:02 am
heard last night. >> yeah. just kind of looked kind of like you think where people are coming to nowadays, hard times are making people do bad choices and stuff like that, you know what i mean? >> reporter: he reported that heard what sounded like small caliber gunfire about five to six shots so again, they are still trying to figure out here from what we're hearing from the police spokesman, this appears to be gang-related. frank? >> okay, kiet do he is live in east san jose. thanks for the update, kiet. meanwhile, oakland police are hoping witnesses will provide some clues on the shootout that killed a high school senior who was just three weeks from graduating. it happened yesterday afternoon on ritchie street near bancroft. ditiyan franklin, jr., was riding his bike when he was shot. investigators are trying to figure out if he was the intended target. we have confirmed the los angeles police department will be having a press conference later this morning. and it will focus on the beating case of giants fan
6:03 am
bryan stow. the department expects that criminal charges will be filed soon against the prime suspect. this is our first look at giovanni ramirez. he is denying any involvement saying he wasn't at the game because he was babysitting his 10-year-old daughter but the lapd says they are pleased with their case and expect criminal charges to be filed soon. use less pay less, right? well, today there is a vote on a controversial rate hike proposal for pg&e that doesn't fit the bill with that saying. anne makovec in millbrae with a look. kind of strange. anne, take away. >> reporter: frank, it is kind of difficult to think of feeling sorry for people who use a lot of energy but pg&e says things have been stacked unfairly for them. now they are talking about giving a break to people who use a lot of energy and charging more for customers who conserve. this is the latest rate hike
6:04 am
proposal to go before the puc. they call it robbing peter to pay paul. the commission will make the final decision on the proposal this morning. it would add $3 to some customer bills, $2 .40 for lower use customers. rate proposals would lower rates for people who use the highest amount of power. now, we spoke with some people here at the millbrae bart station this morning, not too pleased with this proposal. >> that sounds preposterous i think is the word i'm looking for. people conserve electricity previously have been given rebates and discounts and then more people conserve and so now people i guess aren't buying enough so they are going to raise rates? that makes sense. whatever the market will bear. >> i don't think that sounds right. i would be very mad if they did
6:05 am
that to me. >> reporter: more than 85% of customers would see an increase of at least around 10%. so the vote is this morning by the california public utilities commission. one of the members actually has to recuse himself because he used to be an attorney for the utilities reform network, calling that a conflict of interest. we'll keep you posted on that vote. frank? >> well, it does make sense in a little bit because if you buy in volume usually you get a better deal but when it comes to electricity, if you're not using much, i would have issues with that. i don't know about that. >> reporter: like i said when you think of somebody as being an energy hog, the biggest of energy users in california, it's hard to feel sorry for them and think they need a break but pg&e, says this is just evening the playing field. you heard that man that i spoke to refer to some of the rebates that people have been getting for reducing their energy use. he is saying that that just has to end because that was unfair
6:06 am
to the big energy user. >> well, it will all come out in the wash. thank you, anne makovec live in millbrae. quite the sight in northern california yesterday. >> a twister touched down just north of sacramento. >> right there. you got it. we got a funnel! >> this is northern california. this is just one of three tornadoes reported yesterday afternoon. these tornadoes part of an unusual late season cold front. they all hit in pastureland so there was no significant damage. i got ask lawrence about this. i don't ever recall -- >> not one quite defined like that. that was perfect. >> that was a beautiful looking tornado. we actually average five tornadoes a year in california. a lot of people don't think about that. but we see that in the central valley. our tornadoes here much smaller in scale compared to devastating tornadoes in other parts of the country. don't have to worry about that today. just passing clouds. the cold front is well to the east so we'll stay nice and dry here in california in the bay
6:07 am

6:08 am
haven't seen in a long time. >> plus, a bay area death connected to the rapture. what one man tried to do thinking he would be saved. can't believe this is happening again. the little brother is lost. in off the going back without teddy. >> all right. they are back! and it's the talk of hollywood. "eye on the bay"'s liam mayclem gives us his take on the new movie, hangover 2. it's all coming up.

mall. the suspects had at least one gun but no shots were fired. police say this type of crime is rare. >> we haven't seen an armored car get robbed here in the city of richmond for quite some time. this is the first one that we have had. it's not very common for us to respond to something like this. like i said, we are working on some leads right now and we're hoping that we'll be able to solve this case. >> the suspects managed to get away with an undisclosed amount of cash. a taser for every bart officer? the bart board is expected to make a decision on that today. buying the stun guns was one of the recommendations from an outside consultant following the oscar grant shooting. former officer was shot -- that shot grant said he thought he was reaching for his taser. price tag is $140,000 for 130 new tasers. 6:12. more tornado warnings and watches in the midwest. we have a live report on the new round of storms and the damage. >> hollywood wants a piece of

6:17 am
was to prevent people from looting and stealing. but it's not widespread. and there are a lot of law enforcement officers throughout the tornado field. so they are keeping looting at a minimum. >> i don't know how they would do it, but have they been able to put a number on the property damage? how much? >> reporter: we have two figures for you. one from fema which estimates that 8,000 structures over an 1800-acre area were destroyed or badly damaged. there is an organization called equi cat that estimates casualty losses. they are saying that it will range from $1 billion to $3 billion here in joplin. that's in property losses. >> i know they are still in the search and rescue and recovery mode but randall, what about rebuilding? are they even talking about that? what about plans for the medical center, the schools? >> reporter: the medical center right across the street right

6:31 am
traffic are elizabeth. >> we have a half mile backup in pittsburg eastbound 4 due to late running roadwork and also seeing the usual congestion in the westbound lanes so this is a developing hotspot. we'll tell you when that roadwork is expected to wrap up plus we just launched chopper 5 so we'll take you flying over the bay area. in the meantime, back to you guys. >> we like to fly. okay, 6:31. a young man found dead in an east san jose roadway, this morning a metal detector is the latest tool being used to find the killer. kiet do tells us what investigators are looking for at the crime scene and has more. >> reporter: good morning. the police spokesman just issued a press release and we're learning more about the victim at this point. he is described as a hispanic man in his 20s. and the 2000 white volkswagen jetta we have been talking about all morning apparently belongs to the victim. we have some video of that here and crime scene technicians really were poring over it all morning long looking for clues to what happened here. from what we can tell this all
6:32 am
began around the 10:30 to 11:00 hour. multiple shots were heard. at that point, a citizen flagged down a police officer. 911 wasn't called but a citizen actually flagged down a police officers. he came to the scene, found the man lying in the street, tried to perform cpr on him. then he was taken to the hospital and died at regional medical center at 11:24 p.m. we spoke with the man by the name of jesus and he says that around 11:30 he heard multiple gunshots being fired. >> they weren't like boomers. like pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, you know? but it was fast. it wasn't just like individual shots. it was one after another real quick. you know? >> reporter: and so at one point the technicians were using a metal detector combing over the grassy area that was right next to the car, presumably looking for either shrugs or shell indicatings. the street here is closed for at least a couple more hours.
6:33 am
this they are investigating the possibility of it being gang- related. >> thank you, kiet do live in east san jose. meanwhile, oakland police are hoping witnesses will provide some clues on a shootout that killed a high school senior who was just three weeks from graduating. it happened yesterday afternoon on ritchie street near ban crot avenue. ditiyan franklin, jr., was riding his bike when was struck. investigators are still trying to figure out if franklin was the intended target. 6:33. in just a few hours the los angeles police department will have a press conference and it will focus on the beating case of giants fan bryan stow. the department expects the criminal charges will be filed soon against the prime suspect. this is our first look at giovanni ramirez. he is denying any involvement saying wasn't even at the game because he was babysitting his 10-year-old daughter. he said he is willing to take a lie detector test to prove his innocence. if you conserve electricity
6:34 am
it could cost you more than those who use a lot of power, power hogs. today there is a vote on a controversial rate hike proposal from pg&e. anne makovec as a look at what it would mean for your bill. anne, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, sydnie. critics are calling this robbing peter to pay paul. unfortunately, a lot of us are peter in that little scenario because pg&e is talking about lowering the bills of customers who use a lot of energy and people who conserve energy would be paying a little bit more with this latest proposal going in front. california public utilities commission this morning. that is going to be where the final call will be made on this pg&e proposal of new fixed tier ratings. the changes would add $3 to most customers' bills. 2.40 for low income customers. but for some of those customers, higher rates would kick in when they use around 30% less power than the average customer. the rate proposals would lower
6:35 am
rates for people who use the highest amounts of power. >> that sounds preposterous. people who conserve electricity previously have been been given discounts and rebates when more people conserve. so now people aren't buying enough so they are going to raise rates? that makes sense. whatever the market will bear. >> i don't think that sounds right. that doesn't -- i wouldn't like that. so i would be very mad if they did that to me. >> reporter: pg&e says this is all evening the playing field. you heard that man refer to some of the rebates that people who conserve energy have been getting and pg&e says that that was weighting things in favor of the people who were conserving energy, just too much. according to one report, the way this would all equal out on the bill, more than 85% of us would pay at least 10% more a month on those bills. >> get ready.
6:36 am
anne, thanks very much. anne makovec in millbrae. >> not going to sit well with a lot of people. >> not at all. >> i'm part of that what 86%. >> we all are. there is a chance of more severe weather today from the storm system that slammed several states this past week. we have some new video check it out, that deadly tornado that hit chickasha, oklahoma, at least 13 people were killed in three states on tuesday and, of course, joplin, missouri, was just devastated over the weekend. more tornadoes yesterday causing minor injuries in missouri, indiana and as i mentioned the search now for survivors continues this morning in joplin, missouri. >> then we had what, three little tornadoes in butte county in northern california. >> crazy. the definition of that one was just remarkable. >> i know. but as you said, lawrence, they're much, much smaller than whatever happened in the midwest. >> yeah. ours are about 70 plus miles per hour. back east they were looking at some of those over 200 miles per hour. and over half a mile wide. so those are definitely devastating tornadoes back there. but we are calming down around
6:37 am
the bay area today. still have clouds today? >> we can't get that big dome of high pressure to build in. so we are left with cool temperatures for the most part. usually almost 80 degrees in concord. today 10 degrees below average still comfortable at 69. a good 9 degrees below average in san jose at 68. and it looks like about 64 degrees in san francisco. we have a chance of rain coming up. more on that in just a moment. right now let's check traffic with elizabeth. >> thank you. we're just hearing some news from our radio partners kcbs of a problem on bart. sounds like a person in a wheelchair fell on the tracks near the powell street station in san francisco. so they are having to turn trains around at the montgomery station. so again expect delays for bart if you are using that to head into san francisco. we are not sure how badly right now but again they are turning trains around at the montgomery street station. ace on time, muni on time and alameda harbor bay ferry service schedule has resumed this morning after a couple of days of being out of
6:38 am

6:39 am
"accept" without reading them. that's why senator franken is now calling on both apple and google to adopt a universal privacy policy that would spell out to users exactly what data is being collected and how it's being used. it's a simple idea. it may not be that easy. two weeks ago at a senate judiciary committee hearing, apple's vice president of software technology bud trible said that they do require that their app makers get consent from users before collecting their data but they don't have a technical means to enforce it. >> when you start to do that for every little piece of information, uhm, the screen that the user is confronted with in terms of yes, no, yes, no, yes, no, potentially becomes very long and complex. >> reporter: apple and google is had no comment on this latest request from senator franken. he says that he is most
6:40 am
concerned about recent requests that smart phones have been tracking user location and storing that data for up to a year in some cases. matt bigler in san jose for cbs 5. >> thank you. it is 6:40. new photos of schwarzenegger and his secret child. the special family milestone that he celebrated with maria. >> it's not good. plus, one of the hottest sequels of the year.

temperatures cooler than normal but comfortable in most spots well into the 60s inland, a lot of 60s inside the bay and 50s and 60s, breezy at the coast. a system developing off the coastline will brush the bay area as we head into tomorrow. today just passing clouds. but again, tomorrow, looks like we do have a chance of a few raindrops mainly north of the golden gate bridge. let's enjoy this dry day today. cool, mild and a bit breezy especially out toward the beaches where the winds are going to blow and that's where you will find the temperatures mainly into the 50s. you get inside the bay a little more wind sheltered, 60s in the afternoon. dublin looking good, couple of passing clouds and 67 degrees. 68 in walnut creek, 63 and breezy in richmond. winds blowing at stinson beach today so plan on mid-50s for highs there. 64 in san rafael and about 68 and sunshine and couple of clouds into sonoma. next couple of days a chance of a few showers mainly north of
6:45 am
the golden gate bridge on friday. i think the weekend looks good now as we are going to keep just a couple of passing clouds and windy conditions on saturday but it should stay dry throughout the entire weekend. elizabeth has traffic. >> all right. thank you, lawrence. we are trying to gather some more information about this medical emergency on bart. just about 15 minutes ago, we have learned that a person in a wheelchair fell on the tracks near the powell street station and we understand that bart police are on scene. that person was not struck by a train. the person was not seriously injured. but we just got off the phone with bart central and trains headed for the peninsula and for sfo are being turned around at the montgomery street station and the 24th street station. so obviously expect delays. bart says right now 10-minute delays to take you towards the peninsula but i have a feeling that's going to grow because again they are detouring trains at the montgomery street station. you can't get to the powell street station from the east
6:46 am
bay. all other forms of mass transit are on time include ace, muni metro and the alameda harbor bay ferry service resumed. elsewhere late running roadwork going none pittsburg. eastbound 4 at loveridge, the usual delays westbound, and even eastbound against the commute. the problem is they are still detouring traffic out there. construction was supposed to wrap up by 6:00 but it is still ongoing so detours are out there. backups, it looks like about a half mile and growing at last check. you can see speeds are 34 even under 25 miles per hour across some stretches. coming down the benicia bridge, here's a live look at traffic across the span. so far, so good if you are heading into martinez. that's a check of traffic and weather. back to you. >> thank you. 6:46. sluggish, good description, of the job market and the u.s. economy and new reports this morning. with more on that let's go to the guy right behind me here, that's jason brooks with kcbs and
6:47 am
good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we need to pump up the economy. sluggish in manufacturing and as well as the job market. the labor department said that first time weekly unemployment claims rose by 10,000 to 424,000. that came after two straight weeks of declines. the four-week average actually fell for the first time in seven weeks but just slightly to just under 439,000. that's well above the number that would suggest job growth taking place. now, it's sort of unclear at this point as to whether or not employers have actually pulled back on hiring or simply are seeing more people come back offer the sidelines and resume their hunt for work and so they are filing for the claims. but bee need to see job growth to stimulate the economy which according to the commerce department on its second look at the economy in the 1st quarter grew at a rate of 1.8%. that was a reaffirmation of their first take on 1st quarter
6:48 am
gdp which was a lot slower than the 4th quarter when the economy grew by 3.1%. two big reasons for that? big pull-back in consumer spending grew at half the rate it did in the fourth quarter and continues cutbacks in government spending. higher pump prices a big culprit in why people are spending less elsewhere. that is impacting the stock market which broke a three session losing streak yesterday. looking at the numbers right now, the dow is lower by 27 points. nasdaq is up by 1. the s&p is down by 1. oil easing back a little down 16 cents, well over $101 a barrel, frank and sydnie. >> all right, jason brooks with kcbs and thank you. well, just one more day until the holiday weekend and plenty -- there is so much to keep us busy this holiday weekend. >> liam mayclem here, hangover pirates,et cetera.

york on a thursday morning. good morning, erica. >> good morning. just ahead on the show we are going to take a closer look at the severe weather which continues to pummel the midwest. several states hit in the latest rash of storms. no one was killed. meantime we are live on the ground in joplin missouri as folks begin to literally pick up the pieces. we'll also take a look at the impact of the tragedy through the eyes of some of the youngest victims. and president obama continues his european tour in france this morning for the g8 summit. what will they be doing there? we'll give you a little preview just ahead and also for all the folks out there posting pictures from their smart phones, you may want to remove a little bit of information before you post it, probably stuff you don't even realize you're sending. we'll help you do that. >> nothing personal anymore. wow. >> no more photos. >> thank you very much. "the early show" starts in a few minutes. see you then new photos that appear to show schwarzenegger hiding his affair in plain sight. >> it's true. he apparently spent quality
6:57 am
time with his mistress and their son while his wife, maria shriver was watching the whole thing. take a look. according to celebrity website tmz, schwarzenegger took his wife, maria shriver and their kids to the christening of his secret child. you can see arranged and maria on the left right next to mildred bainna . the mistress. this is back in 1998. >> and former governor apparently even taught the little boy how to play golf. "entertainment tonight" reports that maria shriver is likely to file for divorce sometime this week. >> moving right along. weather-wise -- >> yeah. >> hey -- >> we're looking good. yesterday, every time i -- >> from that to this. >> never know what it's going to do to us now. >> get rid of it now! >> we are looking good. we'll see a little more sunshine today. couple of clouds moving across our skies this morning. still i think as we head in toward the afternoon cooler than normal but comfortable in most spots, almost 70 in the warmest spots inland, 60s inside the bay, breezy at the
6:58 am
coastline with mainly temperatures in the 50s. tomorrow though the clouds do roll back in, slight chance of showers. looking toward the holiday weekend it looks sunny side up around most of the bay area. the winds will blow a bit but those temperatures are going to blow cooler than normal. here's the picture for you. this one the sunset cloud formation sent by lindsay austin of santa rosa. we have plenty of clouds this spring to look at and, of course, if you would like to send your pictures, send them to we would love to run those on the air. >> excellent. all right. we have had a number of things to talk about over the last 15 minutes or so in the traffic department. want to update you on this bart situation. right now there are 15-minute delays into and out of san francisco. the problem is an earlier issue, a medical emergency actually at the powell street station. a person in a wheelchair fell on the tracks at the powell street station. we understand from bart police they weren't seriously hurt but we have been on and off the phone with bart central this morning and again right now
6:59 am
powell street service has resumed at the powell street station. they were able to get trains through so right now residual delays of 15 minutes in either direction. major problem in pittsburg. look at the long line of red in either direction. westbound and eastbound highway 4. late running roadwork was supposed to wrap up. that's not the case. an hour later, we still have detours in place. so traffic is jammed in those eastbound lanes from railroad. and it looks like it's causing some extra heavy traffic in those westbound lanes, as well. so watch out for that. meantime, at the bay bridge, we have metering lights on and from what i can see doesn't look bad. it's hard to see in the sunshine. >> looks marvelous. >> yeah. heading into the city. so you may want to avoid that. >> i like what lawrence said. sunny side up so they may be stuck in traffic but enjoy the sunshine. >> we have memorial day weekend on monday so people are thinking, today's friday. we'll get to
