a pleasant, a neighborhood ends and with officers fatally shooting a man. take a look. tense moments as they smashed open the window yesterday to one of the apartments at willow road winds drive. police got a call that it was a domestic of violence event and that's when they showed up. and the man accused of the domestic violence wouldn't come out. police confronted him, but they say he had a knife in his hand and that's when officers opened fire. one witness describes what he saw. >> they were just talking on the loud speaker saying no time to come out, come out and he just wasn't at all. and then that's when they started to break the window down and throw flash bang. and that's when he came out. and that's when they shot at them within
10 seconds. and they were firing at them. >> pleasanton police have not identified the man who was killed or the officers involved in this shooting. they will continue their investigation and the alameda county da's office is also investigating what happened. >> now to another big story that we're following this morning. there are new efforts to try to reduce the number of traffic deaths across the states and right here in the bay area and especially in san jose. they've already seen more than a dozen traffic related deaths this year. so far, kron four's will tran live there with the latest. will. >> james area at its pace, san jose will shatter last year's number of traffic fatalities. which is why san jose is welcoming this assembly bill that is being proposed that will try to get drivers to slow down. there are many reasons why people get involved in crashes, but they believe the one thread, the biggest thread seems to be speed. san jose already is off
to a very fast start. at least 16 people have been killed in traffic fatalities. yes, some of them have been outside the crosswalks. others were inside broad daylight in. they were hit all of a sudden and died from their injuries. and that is why this is an alarming thing for san jose. in fact, you remember about a week ago i was here doing this particular story when all of us and even on my shift, there was another traffic fatality that we had to rush to this bill actually will try to put cameras in high volume places in cities like san jose, oakland, san francisco and los angeles. these are not red light cameras, but these are cameras that will be mounted in certain intersections, certain locations that would only take a picture of license plates and then that will be given to the police department so they can issue tickets. take a look at your screen. mayor sam liccardo. he is fully aware of this assembly
bill, which is 23. 36, he says over the past year in san jose we've seen an alarming rise in traffic fatalities with speeding off and being the cause. the staggering loss of life we see on our streets is preventable tragedy. >> i applaud assembly member lower freemans common sense bill to allow cities like ours to deploy speed safety cameras to save lives and keep our streets safe. now, this assembly bill, guys, it is not meant to generate money. they say it's only going to try to slow down drivers and unlike speeding tickets and other areas where it's a flat fine. and depending how fast you go, it goes up and up. >> this one will work with your income level. so low income families if they're caught speeding, the courts will work with them at a lower rate. and if they can't pay that lower rate. then they'll have payment installments. so this is still working its way through. but the city of san jose police department, they
are fully supporting this assembly bill. >> back to you. all right. thanks a lot for that update. >> it is 5, 0, 7. let's jump to the east bay now where the chp has announced an arrest in a road rage shooting right near the caldecott tunnel in not only the county, 20 year-old troy nicholson, junior of castro valley is now facing several charges connected with the shooting last september. chp made the arrests thanks to leads from the public and also the use of technology that tracked the car and the accused shooter. one chp officer says that aggressive and angry driving, of course, should be avoided. and if someone is the victim of a road rage, well, here's a few tips. >> try to avoid contact to not respond to any aggression with aggression. if the person if you feel is following you call 911 and make sure not to drive home, try to drive to a safe location with there's a lot of people already in to a nearby police department. >> yeah. as we head into the president's day weekend, freeways are expected to be busy. so there could be some frustration out there. so be

>> 5.14, drought update. most of the bay area's reservoirs benefited from the rain that we got. so that's a good thing. we've got some heavy rain will host a while ago, though, that was in november, december. so when they kind of survey they're continuing to look and ask you conserve. but they are saying, you know,
that we did get a little some, which is better than nothing. east bay mud, reservoirs. are at 69% of capacity. the district is still asking customers reduce water usage if you can buy 10% in san francisco. the reservoirs include the hetch hetchy in yosemite. there are around 75% capacity and in the north bay, britain county reservoirs are at 95% capacity is where they've loosened a their u.s. directions. and then in the south bay, santa clara valley, water district, 10 reservoirs wow, an average of 26%. that's not good. no. so clearly we need more rain. but >> doesn't look like we're going to get much of it. we've got john in the weather center. he's taking a look at the drought. then what future sprinkles may be on the horizon morning, john. yeah, i think has had she's going to benefit more than anything or sf gets its water because that's up in the sierra. >> we've got our better chance of precipitation. the bay area likely keeping this dry trend going for a little bit longer.
of october and december really helped us out as far as the drought is concerned. but we really only made halfway there. latest drought monitor probably not showing a whole lot of change, which is actually good news because at this point, without all that rainfall, we are worried that we'd see conditions slipping deeper and deeper into drought. right now, it's kind of a holding pattern and we're just holding our breath, hoping that march does come through for us. as for today, another dry one ahead. we do have partly cloudy skies to start the morning, but skies will grow increasingly clear. come the afternoon. if we can't get the rainfall that we can't do anything about that, you might as well. just enjoy the nice weather that we do have in today is going to bring a lot more of that calmer winds. and yesterday, just a modest offshore wind enough to warm things up near the coastline and we will have a return of wintery weather next week. that means enjoy are nice and mild conditions today. this storm system will again skirt to the east of the bay area resulting in snow in the sierra on over into the rockies. all drought stricken
areas. so this is all really good news here. we're just not getting so much of that rainfall here in the bay area. just a chance of a few light sprinkles into tuesday, which may be just barely enough to break our dry streak, but not really enough to make much of an impact beyond that. as for temperatures that will be 60's to barely low 70's for your daytime highs today. pretty familiar numbers here because we've been sitting with these temperatures the past couple of days now, upper 60's on the peninsula along the bay shore and san jose and campbell, our 2 warmest spots at 70 degrees today mid to upper 60's across the east bay freemont at 68 oakland on up to richmond down to san leandro at 67. the late hope, aneesh, over to pittsburg ups, a vacaville each at 66 getting your lookahead next 7 days start to cool down after tomorrow. so today and tomorrow are mild clear days sunday, you'll see some more cloud cover and cooler temperature and monday and tuesday, only in the upper 50's with that best chance of a few sprinkles on tuesday in

into these olympics, the expectation with 3 of the 4 returning players for turning athletes from 4 years ago. they may not have one goal, but they certainly would have at least played for gold. at least that's what i thought. and now they're leaving without a medal. so no metal here at the beijing olympics for the u.s. men's curling well, it just makes for a better story, i guess in 4 years when they have to come back in. >> all right. when it all i'm hoping i was more a captivated by the luscious hair. i have players were strong kid can i like you're talking about. matt hamilton with his locks down his shoulders. he grew his hair out from the last 4 years. i like it. ok, can you give us an update on the russian feel because the ioc, i guess, is weighing in him. yes. so we finally heard from ioc president thomas bach about the whole situation and guys really strong words. he called her performance disturbed, very disturbed and he talked about the pressure
