7:02 am
officers are still looking for the shooter. kron 4. sarah stinson in the newsroom with the very latest on this. sarah. >> that's right. we just got new information. vallejo police say a man was shot inside a car when officers arrived. they tried to save him, but he died on scene. take a look at this maps. you can see exactly where it happened on the 3400 block of hazelwood street. a few streets down from any penny cook elementary school video video shows crime scene tape blocking off hazelwood street. the shooting happened just before 11, 30 last night. a man sitting in a car was shot at least one time and died on scene. this happened in front of a home and in this neighborhood, yellow evidence markers are seen scattered on the street along the car where he was shot. investigators are still trying to figure out the motive and circumstances of the shooting. police did not mention anything about the shooter. our photographer tells us the scene was quite emotional at several distraught family members. the name of the victim has not been released. this is the
7:03 am
10th homicide in vallejo this year, i police if they have identified the shooter, but they've not. i'm not heard back yet. so that's kind of the missing piece we're waiting for. have they identified the shooter? is there anyone in custody? it seems like they're still looking for that person. all keep digging into this for now. send it back to you in studio. thank you, sir. >> it's 7, 0, 3 and santa rosa. police are looking for the man who shot another man and a taco bell drive through. it happened at the taco bell on mendocino avenue near santa rosa junior college police think that the shooter, they say was brad adams. they say he was in front of another man in the drive-thru line when he started arguing and then threatened to use a gun and then officers say that adam started shooting at the victim and drove off. police found adams truck a little later in the parking lot. but he wasn't there. the man who was shot suffered serious injuries, but he is expected to recover. one
7:04 am
man was shot and killed in berkeley on tuesday night. but police are just now telling us about this shooting that happened in the 1100 block of channing way. when the police responded, they found a man with a gunshot wound and he died at the scene. we do not have the name of the victim. all right. also making headlines this morning. dozens of people without a home right now after a fire broke out and destroyed an apartment building in mountain view and was deadly, a downfield person and a dog kron four's will tran is live with the latest. will. >> and then darya james sent 5 people to the hospital at the very least to get checked out. fortunately there, okay. so they're not added to the number of fatalities. it could have been worse, though, because look at that. the fire right behind me. you can see the back window screen. there it is open. it's charred on the outside. clearly indicating that the fire reached from inside to outside the building, the 18
7:05 am
uninhabitable units. they were downstairs because of all that water that the fire department throughout let me show you some pictures. the fire raced through that unit went down the hallway in the firefighters pounced on it at around 1 o'clock in the afternoon. so many people were at home, many others at work. they got an e-mail from the complex here located on the 300 block of avenue saying that there was a fire at the complex. so they raced home and then they saw the fire fighters surrounding the building. >> couple of minutes ago, i got a chance to talk to a resident of this apartment complex. here's what he had to say about getting the alert at work. >> you know, obviously worried for my neighbors and everybody safety and everything. so but to get an email, i would be frantic like my unit, my dog. i know it. yesh. it was very scary i think like we didn't fully understand the extent of everything. and, you know, you just hear fire and it's it's
7:06 am
scary thing to here. happening in your home. >> so he was very confused. but what happened? he sad but happy at the same time, guys, because his unit is on the other side of the apartment he smells a little smoke in his area, but not too bad. as far as the unit's is going to take quite some time for them to rebuild it. so it looks like this people will not be home anytime soon. which is why there is a senior center that's helping out in the immediate future. and i'm sure i'm sure this place will help them find long-term housing. the person who died, that person's name not be released at this time. we don't even know the gender of this particular person. the area is preserved because fire investigators, they still need to come back to this location as they try to find out the cause of the fire. there are many dogs involved in all this, but fortunately, all their dogs have been reunited with their owners. >> back to you. thanks a lot. we'll. >> okay. 7, 0, 6, is the time.
7:07 am
another big story that we're following this morning president biden. now in some state democrats vowing to pass a federal bill to protect abortion rights as protests are sweeping the nation. it's not clear is going to get done though. joe khalil has the latest. >> following the bombshell supreme court leak, democrats are now promising to make roe v wade the law of the land, countless women around america are feeling anger, realistically, democrats know there's no feasible way to actually get this done in congress with a 50 50 senate. the votes simply aren't there to pass an abortion bill or change. the senate rules deserve to know where senators stand. even if we lose the vote. senators are on record. we're going to try to explore any and every path we have available. it's why senator jacky rosen says part of the strategy must be the long game starting this november. we have to elect more pro-choice
7:08 am
democrats in office so that we can first of all, stop my republican extreme republican colleagues posing a nationwide abortion ban. sources tell news nation the women's health protection act, a bill that protects abortion rights nationwide. we'll come up for a vote in the senate next week. they're not going to be able to use that as a slam dunk because of how deplorable the performance has been. republican mike braun says he believes the effort doomed to fail is mostly for republicans are convinced despite the white backlash now, voters biggest animated concern will still be inflation. what persuades an independent board or what persuades somebody that is persuadable are things like, you know, their their personal pocket issues. >> that was joe khalil reporting. the bill itself was actually writtensby republicans. senators susan collins and >> lisa murkowski. they are the only 2 pro choice republicans.
7:09 am
>> the battle over a woman's right to choose obviously now taking center stage with experts thinking this could change the trajectory of the mid term election this year. san jose state political science professor donna crane says the high court's opinion is likely going to motivate democrats to cast a ballot this election. she says this is something we normally see when reproductive rights are at risk because it usually makes the pro-choice side more politically active. a big voter turnout is something crane says democrats are going to need because a recent poll conducted before the court's opinion was leaked show democrats said they were less likely to vote than republicans this november. crane says low voter turnout over the years has led the nation to this moment. >> knowing how slowly the supreme court changes personnel. that's a lot that that's a long game. and here we are. you know, president trump has appointed the last 3 justices to the bench and antiabortion with antiabortion
7:10 am
led senate by mitch mcconnell. it was successful in putting 3 more justices on the bench now they have a 6 to 3 majority. so it's taken them 50 but they have got there. >> meanwhile, other large issues impacting the landscape in the mid terms includes high inflation rates. we're all dealing with that. this is a redistricting year that will motivate some. and we have a president with an approval rating in the low 40's that might discourage some from turning out. we'll see how it all shakes out. >> despite the fact that california is in the middle of a historic drought, marin county is making a surprising decision easing water restriction. move coming just ahead of what's expected to be a very hot summer. we've got kron fours camila barco in the newsroom with hopefully an explanation. camila. >> yeah, james started marin municipal water district has ended its local water shortage. emergency that was implemented last year because of how low water supplies were. but they say water supply levels have greatly improved this year. thanks to
7:11 am
the rain that we got in october and december. right now, marine waters, reservoirs are at 90% of total storage capacity. and because of that, the board voted this week to rescind several rules that have been in effect for the past year. now, their vote ends restrictions on customers washing their cars at home. irrigating golf courses and filling swimming pools. now, even though water supplies have been replenished, the board is making some water conservation rules permanent. for example, the board is allowing sprinkler use up to 2 days per week. drip irrigation is allowed up to 3 days a week and swimming pools must have covers to reduce evaporation. the board's president says that they have moved to pass a local water shortage emergency, but california, as we all know, is still in a drought and customers can not let their guard down. so they're still asking customers to continue to use their water wisely. back to you guys. all right. thank you. camila. 7.11, is a time right now. and still ahead on the kron 4
7:12 am
morning news. there's an internal and are sorry there's an extra limb esta geisha now that reveals more information. >> about the death of mario gonzalez. we'll take a look at what that means for the officers involved. and the federal reserve is about to raise interest rates again. what is the president going to do to try to drive down the cost of everything.
