4:30 am
next to you. >> how's the weather? >> how did you guys like summer? >> it's over! >> looks like we are back into some fall weather conditions outside a lot of clouds out there now chilly in santa rosa 45. we have a chance of some showers coming up. we'll talk about it coming up. >> a live look at the south bay this morning, san jose one at trimble at 4:30 this morning pretty much cruising along on most major freeways. overnight roadwork, more coming up. a 3-year-old boy is among 13 people hurt in a shooting at a park in chicago. ambulances and police rushed to the scene just after 10:00 last night. authorities say at least two gunmen opened fire on people playing basketball. >> i heard 20 shots. i just walked over here and police is over here real quick. they got over here real fast.
4:31 am
>> you ain't getting away with nothing. you should turn yourself in. do what's right. >> authorities say the 3-year- old was shot in the cheek and is in critical condition. but expected to be okay. police suspect the shooting was gang-related. hayward police want to know why nobody called 911 after a 10-year-old girl was shot her house riddled with bullets. kiet do found out last night why it took so long to get help. >> reporter: there's been no time to clean up glass and debris. the family was at the hospital all day. we caught up with the girl's father as they headed back to be by her side. you didn't hear the shots? >> i heard shots. i thought they were, uhm, something else. something else or something, like, uhm, bulbs popping. >> reporter: hayward police say around 2:00 this morning a gunman sprayed the house with bullets. the family members waited until
4:32 am
7:30 a.m. to call police. 5 1/2 hours later? >> how come they didn't call us? if they were scared, understandable, but we still need to be out there to treat whoever we can treat. >> reporter: why didn't you call the cops right away? >> because normally we don't call the cops when we hear shots on the streets. i didn't know it was in front of my house and i didn't know my daughter was shot. >> reporter: one round hit the 10-year-old girl in the buttocks. the father offered this reasoning why they didn't call police when they found blood on the sheets. >> i had told them to check her and they said that she was on her first period. she's 10 years old. and it -- i didn't notice any holes in the walls. >> reporter: many neighbors heard the shots but not one person called 911. excuses ranged from not wanting to get involved to, they thought someone else was going to call. pastor chuck horner with calvary baptist church says this attitude must change. >> that's why it happens is because nobody deals with it. we need to stand up to this. it will only get worse. >> reporter: anything you want to say to anybody out there who
4:33 am
is judging you out there at all? >> nobody has the right to judge. >> everybody is going to judge. i'm not judging nobody. people who did this will have to deal with the lord. >> reporter: in hayward, kiet do, kpix 5. dozens of san francisco police officers were called out to help at a murder scene on potrero hill. a large crowd gathered after the shooting at 23rd and arkansas at 8 p.m. last night. extra officers were called to deal with the group. a man and a woman in their 20s were shot multiple times while they sat in a car. the man died. the woman is expected to survive. police are looking for the gunman. new details about the washington navy yard killer. the head of the fbi says it appears aaron alexis was wandering the halls hunting for people to shoot and today we're learning a new timeline for the rampage. investigators say alexis fired his first shot by 8:12 monday morning after coming out of a restroom with a shotgun. first responders got there by
4:34 am
8:20 and a gun battle began. alexis died at 9:30. house republicans are taking a gamble on capitol hill today. they are betting democrats want to avoid a government shutdown he more than they want to see the affordable care act take effect. susan mcginnis has the latest on that budget battle. reporter: house republicans are taking a strong stand against obamacare. >> i think our position is very clear. the law is a train wreck. >> reporter: the house is expected to pass a bill today that would keep the government running but it cuts off funding for the president's healthcare law. >> any bill that defunds obamacare is dead. >> reporter: the vote sets the stage for a showdown between republicans in the house and democrats in the senate. >> we are sending a strong message to the house, we will not blink. >> i expect my senate colleagues to do everything they can to defund this law just like the house is going to do. >> reporter: the two sides have less than two weeks to
4:35 am
compromise or face a partial government shutdown beginning october 1. that will hurt a struggling economy and political careers. government services like museums and national parks could close and hundreds of thousands of government workers could be forced to stay home without pay. lawmakers in both parties could end up paying the price. >> if you are an incumbent candidate heading into 2014, i don't think any swing voters, republican or democratic leaning, want to see that there was a government shutdown. >> reporter: polls show more americans would blame republicans for a shutdown than democrats,which is why some republican senators call the house gamble a bad bet. susan mcginnis, cbs news, washington. >> some republicans say that if they can't defund the affordable care act during the budget battle they will try again during the debate about raising the nation's debt limit. and the republican- controlled house has passed a bill to cut $4 billion out of the food stamp program. that plan would allow states to put work requirements in place
4:36 am
for food stamp recipients. the bill likely won't make it past the democrat-controlled senate. it passed a bill that would make about a tenth of the amount of those cuts, roughly $400 million a year. today the obama administration plans to introduce new requirements for coal-fired power plants. under the proposal, new plants would have to install technology that captures carbon dioxide and buries it underground. coal producers say the technology is too expensive. the coal industry provides 40% of all u.s. electricity, but it has recently been losing market share to natural gas. it's the end of the summer, one day. >> yesterday was gorgeous around the bay area. today we have those clouds on the increase and looks like we'll see more clouds and a cold front, chance of showers this evening. look at that. we have two cold fronts making its way in our direction. not a lot of energy with it but it will usher in a chance of
4:37 am
some of those showers later on this evening and some much cooler air on the way. 50s and low 60s into livermore. by the afternoon big changes ahead. yesterday, wow, even soared into the mid-90s into livermore. but as we head toward this afternoon, highs topping out maybe some low 80s about 14 degrees cooler in livermore. 67 in san francisco with increasing clouds and big changes on the weekend. let's check the roads with elizabeth. >> reporter: thanks, lawrence. the pay gates look good through the bay bridge toll plaza no delay. but there is a but, they have three right lanes blocked from the incline to treasure island for just about another 20 minutes until 5:00 this morning. northbound 880 high street to embarcadero three left lanes
4:38 am

4:39 am
council's decision. >> china does not deserve this honor! >> reporter: that is exactly what tibetan protestors who flocked to monday's city council meeting were hoping for. >> it's really a big victory not only just for the tibetans but worldwide. >> reporter: it was benny lee's idea to fly the flag on october 1 a tribute to china's national day and a way to signal to chinese investors that san leandro wants their business. >> this partnership allows us to grow quicker. >> reporter: christin ayers, kpix 5. >> those remarks from councilman lee were from earlier in the week. he was unavailable for comment after yesterday's decision. california just became the first state to legitimize ridesharing. the app-based industry companies like lyft and uber faces a laundry lift of things -- those things with the moustaches on the grill -- includes training and background checks and
4:40 am
commercial liability insurance. unlike taxi drivers, "rideshare" cannot accept a street hail from a passenger. taxi drivers say that ridesharing takes away their business. >> i believe our best shot is in a court of law, which is largely not political. >> state puc plans to revisit today's decision in a year just to see how it's going. violence in san francisco is prompting calls for more security in a popular nightclub area. >> as kpix 5's elizabeth cook reports, the proposed security measures include a dress code. >> reporter: don't let the bright lights fool you. the streets of broadway have had their share of dark moments. look at this guy we found on the streets. >> pretty rough area like the red light district in san francisco. so i don't come here at night at all. >> reporter: from fights to shootings to this recent wreck involving a taxi and a pedestrian, but all that may be about to change. the city announced a new plan to make the area safer and more
4:41 am
attractive starting with increased security and even a dress code. >> it's unified for all the nightclubs and bars, be up to the bar or nightclub to enforce it. >> reporter: area businesses we talked to are all for it. >> we don't have a dress code in place for now but we definitely, you know, just try to like filter out people that we think might have a problem. >> reporter: so what does a dress code mean exactly? for girls, you can pretty much get away with anything. for guys that means no baggy pants, no tennis shoes, and you're going to have to leave these at home. many partiers don't seem to mind, either. >> like in chicago they make everybody come dressed to impressed. it keeps the riffraff out. >> reporter: the big hope, get broadway to clean up its act for good. >> i believe, personally, broadway is basically two blocks long and it should be the mecca of safe entertainment for everybody. >> reporter: elizabeth cook, kpix 5. >> san francisco's also working with party bus companies in an
4:42 am
effort to make sure the area has enough police presence for big groups. all right. it's now 4:42 in the morning. 18 minutes before 5 a.m. the u.s. postal service drowning in debt and the only hope to stay afloat is going to cost you. >> and imagine coming home to this mess. how a former raider is offering partiers a chance at redemption. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

westbound 580. usually one of our first areas to see brake lights. the commute gets heaviest around this time and it's pretty crowded in the westbound lanes but all our sensors are still picking up traffic at the limit or at least over 40 miles per hour. westbound it looks like that towards the castro valley y, only 14 minutes between the altamont pass and the dublin interchange. if you are traveling the nimitz freeway, there are a few slowdowns. you can see it right there between high street up towards downtown oakland. they do have three left lanes blocked until about 5:00 this morning. they should be wrapping up here very shortly. in the meantime, the drive time is still in the clear. 18 minutes. so it's obviously not causing any huge delays. and it should be gone, just wait another few minutes, everything should be good to go in both directions. if you are traveling farther south, this is a live look at the milpitas commute no delay and hardly any cars on the road leaving milpitas towards sunnyvale and maybe you're heading out of town sfo the commute on 101 and 280 both look good through san bruno. bart right now has about 20 or

4:55 am
conditions have brought more food to the bay. >> it generally means that the environment in california is colder, more influenced by arctic water coming down from the gulf of alaska. it's typically very high in nutrients and that makes very productive times here. >> reporter: the whales will likely start migrating south to mexico in november. well, this might be one of the most unusual orders they have ever had at mcdonald's. a mceverything sandwich. a wisconsin man spent $141 at the golde arches. he got a tower of sandwiches 43 in all. he ordered one of every sandwich they make. >> said, hey, i want one of every sandwich. i know this is going to sound really weird but breakfast and lunch. i think their main replay was, why do you want to do this? >> so why, why did you want to do it? >> why not. first guy to climb mount
