>> good evening. thanks for joining us. we begin with breaking news tonight at 6 o'clock police responding to a shooting on highway 24 near the call to cut tunnel. >> right during the peak of the evening commute it is not exactly clear where along the freeway that shooting happened. but we do know the crime scene itself is in a red though, which is just east of the caldecott tunnel. the right war of the tunnel was closed for about an hour. and as you might imagine, that caused major traffic backup into oakland. we also learned that a concerned driver called 911, by the time i hung up the phone shots had been fired at their car. fortunately, nobody was injured of course, this is causing some big delays in the east bay and drivers being asked to avoid the area. >> this is a live traffic view of the conditions from our traffic tracker since all of the lanes just reopened within the last 15 minutes or so. traffic should be starting to pick up slowly. but you can still see all that red

>> you know, it's emotional and we still have students from the first tragedy who are recovering in the hospital. and you know, there's services this week for the other >> you know, it's just his home in this latest incident, both the police and the school district are investigating at this point. we still do not know the exact nature of the alleged threat. maureen kelly kron 4 news. >> the bay area's top federal prosecutor announced a sweeping array of indictments targeting in a tory us prison gang acting u.s. attorney stephanie hinds joined a federal, state and local law enforcement officials in issuing 55 arrest warrants targeting the new westra familia gang. the 5 year investigation targeted gang activity from humboldt county all the way to kern county to the indictments are centered on games in san jose. >> the indictments provide a chilling description, a violent criminal networks leadership already. it is incarcerated. by disrupting
game leadership. we've reduced violence on our streets. by removing violent actors in crime drivers from our streets. we make our neighborhoods safer. >> according to the u.s. attorney's office 36 of the defendants named in the indictments were already in state prison and have been moved to federal holding facilities who was not immediately disclosed. how many of the 19 remaining defendants were arrested in this law enforcement sweep, the sweeps, rather, that occurred this week. >> in the south bay a 15 year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of fatally shooting a member of his family outside of a liquor store in ian jose this morning. investigators were taking evidence from the scene at tropicana liquor on story road where a woman was shot and later died from her injuries. police tell us the shooting happened just before 8 o'clock last night. the suspect has been booked into juvenile hall on charges dealing with manslaughter, his

family home neighborhoods. sb 9 will allow homeowners to build 2 houses or a duplex per one house is currently allowed. he also signed sb 10, which allows local governments to rezone single family areas to allow more units for those in urban areas and those near public transportation, other legislation waiting on his signature a series of police accountability measures, including allowing the public greater access to police use of force records. >> and prohibiting officer use of rubber bullets and other less lethal weapons protests news and will also decide of his signature will land on sb to the bill that would remove badges from law enforcement officers accused of wrongdoing. >> other bills awaiting the governor include efforts to address covid labor the environment, education and much more in sacramento. ashley zavala kron 4 news. >> story only on kron 4 republican larry elder now sounds like he's not necessarily going to challenge gavin newsom again. he's talking about newsom's landslide defeat of the recall effort this week. elder was the front runner among the republicans challenging the
governor. he talked to inside california politics and admits another run would be daunting. >> it's hard for me to see how the outcome would be any different. west was able to raise at least as much money as he has that. but even then the thing is daunting. when you look at the registration democrat versus republican when gray davis was recalled. it wasn't as nearly as lopsided as it right now. now independents outnumber republicans. so it's hard for me to see that. were i to have a rematch, the outcome would be a whole lot different. but i may change my mind over the next coming days. >> it is somethpng of a change of tune for elder on election night. for example, he said that while he had lost the battle. he was confident that he would win the war. the kind of talk that had many people assuming he was ready for another run tune into inside california politics this weekend for that full interview as well as a post election roundtable with some of the top political reporters from across the state inside california politics runs saturday at 06:30pm and again sunday morning at 6.30 right

the case that while its vaccine still protects against severe disease immunity wanes against mild infections after 6 to 8 months. recommend that. >> all the individuals over 60 should be offered of lucerne. i'd recommend that you come rise in the video still continues to get their additional shots. >> ucsf infectious disease specialist doctor peter chin-hong says that recommendation is based on data from israel. however, he says that research still doesn't indicate how long those boosters will last. i would like to know how long these uses will actually last. >> because that helps me the chairmen tradeoffs in terms of. is it really with while setting up this revolving door, many, many blue serious. if overall. my protection is going to be relatively stable over time and all i'm trying
to do is prevents. infection, most of which is miles in the vaccinated. chin-hong says the current lack of convincing data. >> is what's keeping him from recommending a booster for those under 60 in my own experience being. >> inpatient wards last 2 weeks. the only vaccinated people i've seen personally who come into the hospital and those they're like what was 70 and those me a compromise, but more than 90% were unvaccinated. chin-hong says in addition to just more data, he hopes it will come from us studies because unlike israel, which is highly vaccinated. >> close to 80 million people in the u.s. remain unvaccinated. >> addition to the fda. the cdc will also be holding meetings next week. they will be looking at the age range of those who possibly could get a boost live in san francisco.
