5:01 am
partly cloudy skies, come wake up this morning and breezy, too. h daytime highs still in the low 60s along the coast, mid-60s in the bay area and our inland forecast, well, we're seeing some low 80s. partly cloudy skies, the winds are sticking around as we head into the afternoon, like i said, started off very bees reezy and letting off any time soon. daytime high upper 40s. san jose around 56 degrees. partly cloudy skies right now and as we look at the winds, well, they are going to kick up as we head into the afternoon. it's a pretty bland forecast across the board though as we extend into this week. we're going to talk more about what's to come. we have a gradual warming trend which we'll talk about in the full forecast. for now, i'll toss it over to gianna. >> good morning. let's look at the roadways right now and speaking of breezy, it's a little breezy at the san mateo bridge, where a wind advisory is in effect. that was a shoot overnight from cal trans, different from the weather center but definitely be
5:02 am
careful as you work your way across the span. no brake lights or issue. off to a good spot on bay area bridges. bay bridge so far so good as you head into san francisco. another perspective here, this is a cal transcamera coming off the skyway as you head into the city at the fremont street exit. no major issues there. look at that, check that out, seeing brake lights building into the altamont, busy ride as you work your way towards the dublin interchange. i'm anne makovec at the live news desk with a look at your headline. a double shooting in san jose was reported on south tenth street, one man has life-threatening injuries and a woman injured, expected to survive at this point. no suspect information, but we are going to keep you posted on that. meantime, continuing to follow the shooting in buffalo, new york. we're learning more about the teenager charged with killing ten people there at the supermarket. investigators say it specifically targeted that store because he wanted to kill as many black people as possible
5:03 am
and that he live streamed the attack. he pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges and apparently last year police questioned him after he reportedly made threats at his high school. 13 people were wounded in this shooting. two survived, and 11 of those targeted were black. at least one person is dead, five injured including four who are in critical condition after a shooting yesterday at a church in laguna woods down in southern california. the shooting happened at i presbyterian church during a lunch reception to honor a former pastor of a taiwanese congregation that uses the church for its worship services. police have a suspect in custody. in the south bay a court hearing for cain velasquez, the former mma fighter charged with attempted murder after shooting a man accused of molesting his relative. he's charged with attempted murder and several other crimes. supporter also likely be gathered outside of the santa clara county courthouse today. that is a look at your headlines
5:04 am
at 5:00 p.m. an len and amanda? >> thanks for that. we're getting new video into the newsroom of side show activity in downtown san francisco. a video from citizen app shows cars taking over harrison and fremont. it shows spectators running away from the scene before police areef. the stalled traffic starts to move once police drive up to the area. thieves have been targeting multiple mosques and stealing money from their donation boxes. surveillance video those somebody reaching into the toe nation box in south san francisco earlier this month. it happened twice and they believe it's the same person. other mosques experienced the same thing. community leaders are coordinating together to prevent more thefts from happening. >> we want to make sure all the mosques are talking to each other and communicating and want to have a game plan to capture the suspect or at least help the suspect out. >> south san francisco police believe the burglary could be connected to another one in a different city. at least four mosques across the
5:05 am
bay area have also reported similar crimes. several wildfires broke out across the bay area over the weekend, in livermore, a fire shut down the altamont pass, it burned more than 100 acres. highway 580 reopened before 5:00. no word on a cause there. in vallejo crews knocked down a three-alarm wildfire around 2:00 near six flags discovery kingdom. it left hazy smoke across parts of east vallejo, also a fire behind food max in vallejo last night. near fairfield and sassoon city a fire burned near travis air force base. the fire burned 20 acres. cal fire's helicopter was called in to help. cal fire officials say they have already responded to more than 1,700 fires this year, just another sign fire season is now year-round. >> there is no fire season. that is one of the things we've been trying to get across to the public for a couple years now.
5:06 am
we're getting away from using the terminology. the implication being that if we're in fire season there's a time of year we're not in fire season and that simply is not the case. >> firefighters are dealing with extreme fire danger, not just in california, but a fire in new mexico has burned about 290,000 acres. health officials in all nine bay area counties are urging people to mask up again indoors, or at large event but many people are making their own decisions this time around. lots of people were out at the niles spring fever car show near fremont yesterday. alameda county is recommending people mask up at large outdoor gatherings. the bay area has a 10% positivity rate, making it about double the statewide average as rules are relaxing and a lot of the fear is gone, some are still choosing to mask up. >> i mean it's just a part of life now pretty much for us. that work in the health care field, i mean, we feel naked without it. >> i don't think we're in danger now. if the government wants to come out and say wear a mask, we'll
5:07 am
wear a mask, but right now, it seems to be we're on our own. >> alameda county health officers say they are not considering another mask mandate since hospital cases are down even with a surge in positivity rate. >> taking a live look at san francisco now where health care workers and allies will come together to protest at chinese hospital. workers at the facility accuse the administration of understaffing and cutting benefits. they say this directly endangers patients by pushing away experienced staff. that protest starts around 2:30 this afternoon. the increase in prices for food items making many people think about their day-to-day expenses right now. >> jocelyn moran is here. you spoke with people outside a grocery store. we're all feeling it. it's not easy. >> reporter: these were increases we notice day-to-day when we go to the grocery store. we talked with two residents, dolores and ralph, they feel it every time they're buying things like milk, eggs and butter,
5:08 am
things we rely on daily. what are you noticing as far as grocery food items? >> ridiculous. >> reporter: dolores and ralph talked with us for a few minutes, all it took to understand the trips to the grocery store are adding. >> we're on limited income, retired of course, we're old, so we don't have that kind of money so we have to watch. >> reporter: food prices rose nearly 9.5% last month compared to april of 2021. according to the bureau of labor statistics, that's the biggest annual hike in 41 years. breakfast items seeing some of the largest increases. >> milk is high. eggs are high, meat is sky-rocketing, even though we don't eat a lot of it but everything, veg, everything. >> reporter: on top of rising costs like gas and rent. >> the typical american household is spending $450 more now than a year ago to buy the same goods and services and that's because of the higher inflation so this is incredibly painful. >> reporter: from the number on the screen at the gas pump to the price tags at the grocery
5:09 am
store, it's all striking hard. >> you have to watch your pennies, yes. so we watch for sales items and there aren't any more. once in a great while we'll stock up on those if they are. >> some experts do say they think inflation is peaking and we could see it lower by the end of this year and certainly by this time next year, but for now, we're dealing with the high prices. >> that's a long time from now, even the end of this year. that's a long time for many of us. >> yes, and like you mentioned and we've been talking about it's the rent, it's the gas, it's on top of a lot of things, so especially for people their day-to-day things and it's hitting people hard. >> and pay is not increasing. >> right. >> just what we're paying for. >> that's a problem. >> so we'll have to keep an eye on all of this. >> jocelyn, thank you, we appreciate that. 5:09 a spectacular show dazzling the night skies.

5:31 am
for now, i'll toss it over to you, gianna. >> good morning. it's looking breezy. look at my camera shaking around a little bit. >> breezy out there. >> it is. so be careful if you're traveling to the altamont pass, if you're in a larger vehicle, a wind advisory in effect for the san mateo bridge. a heads up there. you can see that camera shaking around a little bit this morning. just be extra careful on the roadways. westbound if you are working your way out of tracy getting on to 580 itself, it's monday. a lot of people doing the same thing so it is a busy ride already. bay bridge toll plaza, no metering lights yet. that's the good news. starting to get crowded across the upper deck as you head into the city. a live look at the san mateo bridge, the sign is illuminated reminding folks it's breezy across the span so be careful. no delays on the nimitz. we don't have a ton of accidents slowing down. at least that's the the good news. 880 is looking good in both directions. in a developing story we're learning more about the 18-year-old man who killed ten people at a supermarket in
5:32 am
buffalo, new york. authorities believe the deadly attack was a hate crime. >> cbs reporter bradley blackburn joins us live with the latest on this. what happened? >> reporter: amanda, len, authorities are continuing their investigation here at the top supermarket in buffalo. they are processing the scene behind us. we just saw a team from the fbi go in. they are learning as much as they can about this shooterut y the are convinced that he came here on a mission to kill that was fueled by hatred and racism. the city of buffalo, new york, is in mourning after a mass shooting left ten dead at a supermarket. >> this is not open season on african americans! >> reporter: investigators say suspect payton gendron specifically targeted the store because he wanted to kill as many black people as possible. the 18-year-old pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges. >> the evidence that we have uncovered so far makes no mistake that this is an absolute racist, hate crime. >> reporter: last year, police
5:33 am
questioned gendron after he reportedly made threats at his high school in conklin, new york. >> they interviewed the subject and felt it was appropriate to have that individual brought in for mental health evaluation. state police did their job to the fullest that they could at that time. >> reporter: buffalo residents said they were astonished by the allegations. >> it boggles my mind this young man traveled 200 miles, four hours to target our community, just boggles the mind. >> reporter: on sunday, president biden condemned the attack. the white house says the president and first lady will come here to buffalo tomorrow to join the city in mourning. police say gendron livestreamed the attack and though a spokesperson for the site twitch insists it was pulled down within two minutes, it does raise questions about what more social media companies could or should be doing to prevent publicizing violence. and if the suspect is convicted on murder charges, the 18-year-old could face life in prison without parole, but the
5:34 am
focus here today is really on the victims, too. overnight police released the names of all ten people who lost their lives in this grocery store. we know they ranged in age from 32 years old all the way to 86, and they came here on saturday going about their lives here to buy a birthday cake or get ingredients for dinner this night and len, amanda, they never imagined they would come face-to-face with hate. >> bradley, heartbreaking to hear the details and quite frankly infuriating as well. what is the feeling there this morning? how are people responding? >> reporter: you know, this community is mourning certainly but trying to find ways to support this neighborhood. we know that the shooter or authorities believe that the shooter picked this particular grocery store because it's in the middle of an african american neighborhood. one thing lost in this, this grocery store has been an anchor for this community, the only grocery store within walking distance for many residents here who don't have a car. so one example of the community
5:35 am
spirit here is they've announced they're going to operate a shuttle from this location to other grocery stores in buffalo, so residents here still have options. it's one of the ways, guys, that buffalo is determined this shooter won't take more from this community. >> bradley, the fact that we're almost at 200 mass shootings this year is just heartbreaking as well. so many issues involved in this. thank you so much for your report. and the anti-defamation league is also speaking out after that shooting. investigators say the gunman posted a racist and anti-semitic manifesto before the shooting. >> we can look at the ways in which technology is being weaponized, and in particular, the ways in which social media platforms are being exploited, as a way to reach and recruit and radicalize people who are susceptible to the kinds of lies and conspeary theorys that apparently the alleged shooter bought into. >> california legislators are
5:36 am
considering a social media transparency bill which would hold the companies accountable for hate being spread. i'm anne makovec at the live news desk with a look at your news headlines at the this hour, starting off with breaking news in san jose, a double shooting near san jose state university this morning, it happened at around 3:00, south tenth street on the eastern corner of the campus. one man is very badly injured, his life in jeopardy, according to police and a woman was also shot but is expected to survive. at this point, no information on a suspect nor a motive. at least one person is dead, five injured after a shooting yesterday after a church in laguna woods down in southern california, it happened at a presbyterian church during a lunch reception to honor the former pastor of a taiwanese congregation. police do have a suspect in custody. a court hearing for cain velasquez, the former mma fighter charged with attempted
5:37 am
murder after shooting a man accused of molesting his relative. judging from his past court appearances, supporter also likely be gathered outside of the santa clara county courthouse today. that is a look at your overnight headlines. len and amanda? >> anne, thank you much. to the latest on the war in ukraine. finland and sweden are taking steps to join nato alliance. their membership would be an affront to russia, president vladimir putin cited nato's expansion in eastern europe as being among the reasons for his invasion of ukraine, which is not a nato member. ukrainian soldiers have apparently advanced to the russian border in the northeast. video from the ministry of defense shows men in military uniforms gathered near a blue and yellow boundary marker with one saying they have reached the border. this follows recent reports that ukraine has succeeded in pushing russian forces out of kharkiv, ukraine's second largest city. north korean leader kim jong-un is trying to stabilize
5:38 am
the supply of medicine during an apparent covid outbreak. kim visiting local pharmacies, the health crisis left more than 1 million people ill with a fever and at least 50 dead in a matter of days. in addition, more than 560,000 are now in quarantine. it is not clear how many of the illnesses are due to covid-19, since north korea likely does not have enough testing kits. time n5:. coming up, little art galleries are popping up across the east bay in their neighborhoods, but how the small boxes are starting to leave a very big impact. and we're waking up this morning over mt. diablo, a live cam over walnut creek, that marine layer starting to flow its way inland. we'll talk about that and our gradual warming trend this week coming up in your full forecast.
5:39 am
5:40 am
5:41 am
welcome back. it's a little movement with a big message in the east bay. little, free art galleries are popping up in some oakland and berkeley neighborhoods. >> a woman in seattle started the movement for her neighbors to enjoy and it's grown across the country. justin andrews found one in oakland and there when a well-known east bay artist was contributing his own work. this is so cool.
5:42 am
