5:42 pm
right now. let's go first to san francisco, some pictures from chopper 5 of the outer sunset district. we got a report about an hour ago of a collapse of a balcony or a deck at a home at 39th and lawton in the outer sunset and we are told that two adults have been injured there. they were on the deck. they are transported to the hospital with nonlife threatening injuries. the san francisco buildings inspection department is out there taking a look at what made that deck come down, whether it was faulty craftsmanship, dry rot or whatever. another story we are following is out of a place called orland park, illinois, about 25 miles southwest of chicago. you can see emergency vehicles outside of a mall there, the orland square mall, where shots rang out, multiple shots according to witnesses. shots continued for a while. gunfire inside that. again we don't know about casualties at this point.
5:43 pm
we can see that nobody's coming in or going out right now and the place is surrounded by emergency vehicles. again, no confirmation of any casualties right now, but we are keeping on top of this breaking story and we'll get you more as soon as we know it. from the live news desk, i'm ken bastida. back to you. >> ken, thank you. a large group of people marched through the streets of hayward today to honor martin luther king, jr. members from south hayward parish, a community of local congregations that helps the homeless, set up the annual event. people walked through the streets carrying signs and playing music. the theme of this year's event, lack of shelter, homes for everyone. it's in honor of dr. king who was an advocate for fair housing. >> he keeps us inspired in what we do here in hayward in terms of helping the homeless,

5:45 pm
of government, but still throughout american history members of congress have been worried that the president might try to dominate them by repeatedly showing up, giving speeches, lobbying members and basically taking over the floor. so the rules about exactly when the president can address congress are actually pretty strict. >> they were actually longer when they were written. >> donald richie is the former senate historian. he said first the house and senate have to pass a resolution. only then can the president make a state of the union speech and so far that resolution hasn't happened. >> mr. speaker, the president of the united states. >> even when different parties control congress and the white house, passing the resolution is usually a formality and already house speaker nancy pelosi sent the president a all letter january 3rd inviting him to give the state of the union
5:46 pm
speech on january 9th, but about two weeks later she asked him to postpone the speech because of a government shutdown. the president has not responded to the request for a delay but implied he could show up at the capitol on the 29th. he tweeted, "nancy, i am still thinking about the state of the union speech. there are so many options including doing it as per your written offer and my written acceptance. while a contract is a contract, i'll get back to you soon." so the president seems to believe pelosi's letter is all he needs to move forward with the speech next tuesday and while the expert says that's not true, the president could go to the capitol and try to deliver his speech on the 29th. what would happen then? that's anyone's guess. melissa caen, kpix5. britain's prime minister has a plan b for brexit that appears to be a lot like plan a. today theresa may told parliament she wants to insure that lawmakers "have a chance to make their views known," but she did not alter her position on the major elements on the
