7:00 am
>> from the area's local news station, you're watching the kron. 4 morning news at 7. >> good morning and thanks for joining us at 7 o'clock. i'm sorry and i'm james. let's get right to the weather. we've got rain in for john talking about our forecast today with little breezy earlier. and how about now? it is still pretty breezy out there, still telling people to take your time as you're traveling out there, make sure you bring some sort of light jacket. a live look outside at the east bay hills and you can see clear skies. that's what we're anticipating today. and we still have a wind advisory in place for the east bay and north bay hills. that's going to be until 11:00am today and then winds will slowly start to taper off a live look outside right now. pretty quiet, dry conditions for us. and we're anticipating dry skies for the next few days. current temperatures outside right now low 50's in the east bay you're looking at low to mid 40's and in the south bay
7:01 am
50's. we're going to have your full seven-day forecast coming up and a look at those winds. but for now daryn, james, back to you. thank well, a quick check of the roads this morning. and we've seen this back up here normal back at the bay bridge as we're checking your drive this morning. >> under great conditions, though, as you can see, the sun is up. so though you're waiting to get through the toll plaza, at least you've got some nice weather to enjoy your san mateo bridge ride looking pretty good. 92. once you're past the toll gate, you're moving smoothly across the span. so no problems there getting into the peninsula. and as we jump to the north, we've got our richmond, sandra fell bridge camera that was showing us the right on west bound 5.80. is commuters make their way from the east bay out towards marin county. so far. so good. once you get past the toll gates, but obviously just a little bit of a slowdown at the toll plaza itself. not really the case here at the golden gate bridge. it's been a nice smooth ride all morning long on southbound one. 0, one from marin county and san francisco. you're kind of traveling nice and easily into the city by the bay. >> happening today, the 3 people arrested for the kidnapping of a 3 month-old baby in san jose make their
7:02 am
first court appearance. the trio facing multiple charges. we've got kron four's will tran standing by san jose following up on the story with us this morning. we'll going to be in court today. >> they will be in court right behind me in several hours from now. maybe by then they will have a lawyer and we will talk to the lawyer and maybe we'll talk to the family members because they're just as confused. it seems like as we are the possible motive behind all of this. let me show you their pictures. they were arrested 2 days ago after an intense manhunt that the san jose police department actually even had to bring in the fbi to help with the man their names. jose for t o he is accused of being the one who walked into the apartment unit and grab baby brandon. there's you see in a row. mer is 43 years old. she was the one who was driving brandon's grandmother around. not exactly sure her motive at this time as well. but she was
7:03 am
with the grandmother when the grandmother put baby brandon inside the apartment complex and then was just off loading groceries, walking back and forth when according to investigators, walked into the home and grab brandon and then there's all the males son of all. he's also somehow connected to the case. they be rented and he was kidnapped at 01:00pm on monday when he was at the apartment complex located about 2 or 3 miles from my location on the 1000 block of elm street, his grandmother was watching that watching him at the time. we then. but according to investigators, came there with a carrier empty but left with brandon inside the carrier. so they believe this was all orchestrated. it was a misunderstanding. miscommunication, i should say between the chp and the san jose police department that sent that picture out of that minivan that that the san jose police department that they were looking for, it was a nursing home worker that spotted the van about 5 miles
7:04 am
away from where brandon was kidnapped, called the police. the police arrived to recover them. he is safe. brandon is back with this mother at this particular time. james story, a lot of people wondering the motive we might not find out today, but once this process moves along, that motive should be at least available to the public because the prosecutors we'll have to lay out their case. we are obviously in front of the courthouse. and as soon as all of the players arrive, including the family members as well as the defense attorney, hopefully we will get an interview with them as soon as it back to you. all right. thanks a lot. well. >> 7, 0, 4, the time there are some people who continue to question why an amber alert wasn't issued in this kidnapping case instead of an amber alert. the chp issued an endangered missing advisory. and that's something that law enforcement uses to notify communities of a missing or endangered person when the case doesn't in their mind, meet the criteria of a statewide amber alert the
7:05 am
founder of the klaas kids foundation. marc klass, though, says that the surveillance video showing baby brandon being taken should have been enough evidence to escalate this case to that of an amber alert. those san jose police say they didn't issue one because they didn't feel they had enough information on a suspect vehicle or a license plate. >> i don't know where the but there was an absolutely enough information just knowing that child had taken and having video on verification of that. >> now the chp did post a picture of a car that they say was possibly used by the kidnappers, but took that image down that they had tweeted at the request of san jose pd. the officers there said they didn't want that information public at that time. >> 7, 0, 5, and another missing person's case. happening today. the oakley police department is now going to announce a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to solving the case of alexis gabe, who disappeared. the 24 year-old last seen on
7:06 am
january. 26 in antioch and police and searchers have been trying but not finding her for all of this time. so there hoping that maybe the public will give them a break in this case, we should get more details at 11 o'clock this morning about the reward and also about the investigation that will be live streaming on kron on. >> breaking news. moderna is asking the fda to approve their covid vaccine for the little as kids because right now kids younger than 5 can get a shot there. the only group in the u.s. that aren't eligible all eligible for now. so 5 and under, including real little babies and be able to get that moderna shot if they get the fda approval. >> they're hoping they would give the shots coming this summer pfizer is also studying the effects on the youngest kids with covid shots. but they're not being up for consideration yet by the fda. so moderna would be the first one was speaking of covid. we have bart now contemplating may be bringing that mask mandate back. yeah. and the
7:07 am
question is what do of the board and what do riders think about this? we're following it live this morning with khan fours camila barco morning feel. good morning. you guys together spent a lot of back and forth with the conversation about mask right now. they're optional when people write part. but >> in 3 hours, the board will discuss whether to bring back mask on bart trains and possibly vote on this proposal. rebecca saltzman, bart's board president introduced this idea of bringing back mask on bart trains. she wants to add a mask mandate to bart code of conduct the rule, however, would not apply to people who cannot wear a face covering because of a disability or medical condition or for children ages 2 years or younger. now, if passed, the mask mandate would be in effect until july 18th saltzman sent a letter to 5 bay area counties where bart runs urging them to make a mask a requirement on public transit. now she says mask will protect people when riding buses or trains, especially those who are high risk.
7:08 am
>> because there are many riders who need to be protected from covid. so folks who have underlying health conditions who are immunocompromised kids under 5 were still not eligible to get vaccinated, which is i know amazing to some people because vaccines have been around so long. but small children are still not eligible. those people really need to be protected in the best protection is that everybody wearing. >> mask. >> now, according to bart's, customer code of conduct riders would be warned are ordered to leave if they violate one of the rules. this would include if someone does not wear a mask on a bart train. now, again, if passable would be in effect until mid july unless the board of directors extend that deadline. now just a few days ago, la made it a requirement for people to wear mask on public transit. the question darya james is well, bart do the same for the bay area will see what happens this morning at 09:00am when board members
7:09 am
are scheduled to meet to discuss this proposal and are you were talking about writers? i did post a poll on my personal twitter 100 and about 150 people decided to cast their vote. a majority of that 67% say that they would like to see mask on public transportation. >> that's a pretty healthy majority. camila, thank you. we'll see what the board decides 7, 0, 9, right now. and the police department is inching closer towards ending federal oversight in oakland, a federal judge is planning to order and this next week we think in detail when the oakland police can begin their one year probationary period which would end the oversight. the oversight resulted from a class action lawsuit in 2000 where 6 men in west oakland said that they were falsely arrested on drug charges assaulted and then framed by the oakland police. the officers were found not guilty, but there was a civil case and that led to this settlement that required the oakland police department to
7:10 am
complete 51 tasks to improve their training and discipline of officers and they've completed 50 of those. >> i want to make sure that black options were carry within the department and when that had to be done with the consistency of discipline, that is a task that is not completed yet, but is one that i think will get done within the next 6 months is part of the sustainability period. >> last week, attorneys on both sides involved in the case filed a joint statement saying they're open to starting the one-year transition into the probationary period. >> let's turn our attention now to the golden state warriors. they are moving on as a that win against the denver nuggets, the chase center. so around one down, it's on to round 2 as tess is 99. >> they put them to although it was kind of a i was doubting event. let's get the latest from kron 4 sarah stinson on the game. and then what happens next? i sarah. >> we have a good future ahead of us. now that guess who's
7:11 am
back? steph is back. i got this little bobblehead here because want not, we're all pumped this morning to hear that. the warriors to lynch to that next step that second step into the nba playoffs. and as daria said, it was a close call. i mean, one of 2 to 98. but everyone was stoked to see step back out there. healthy, healthier than he's been in some time, but that neither team had more than a 10 point lead the whole game. but steph came in towards the end and really just push for it hard like he does and has done so many times and golden state postseasons curry scored 30 points in his return. draymond green had 11 points and 6 assists. klay thompson had 15 points and 9 rebounds after the game. we caught up clay. he said there's a lot of work to be done. they're on track to play like old times explain how nice it is to have stepped back. >> he's our leader, the
7:12 am
longest tenured player and the pea. and without him. it difficult. so. steph curry is. this one of a kind and will continue to do the spectacular. make it look effortless. >> fans are already looking forward to attending the western conference semifinals. the warriors will play the winner of the minnesota timberwolves series against the memphis grizzlies. the grizzlies eliminated golden state when we played them last year at this time. so if we play them again, it will be quite the rematch. memphis leads 3 to 2 in game 6 will be played friday night in minnesota. so we don't necessarily know when we're going to play who are going to play. but as i said, warrior fans, we don't care. we're just glad we're going on to the next step. people out of their back in motion. just to see our team in good health after 2 years. yeah. i mean, people are excited. so i'm not here on the balcony. i love the propping up san francisco
7:13 am
and the bobblehead that as they go over to the sports directors jet does jason? and just take was dealing and stuff. ticket holders can get their tickets that's right. and then what general public is it tomorrow? >> that they can get their tickets. >> i think that's tomorrow. those who can afford those tickets good for you. otherwise all of us as james, that she's free. thank you, sarah. all right. we'll take a quick break here at 7.13. still ahead on the kron, 4 morning news. >> a disturbing story out of richmond. a child abuse victim says that the church she went to should have done more to protect her. we'll have more on her allegations coming up. meanwhile, it's supposed to be windy here in the bay area for the next few days. we'll tell you what cities are doing to try and stop wildfires from starting and spreading.
