close to us. we're in a dry trajectory through the weekend and into next week, too. 40's 50's for current temperatures a little bit more mild to start this morning. a little bit calmer as well. and we're going to be a lot warmer later on today. be breaking down what you can expect to start the weekend. what day will be the hottest, all of it. still to come over to irena. john, thank you for that, right waking up this morning. if you're heading into the city right now, a little under. >> 8 minutes to make your drive from the maze. 2 that fremont street traffic is moving along nicely. san mateo bridge a 80 to one on one about a 12 minute drive for you as you're commuting there. let's check on the richmond. sandra fell bridge tolls to one o one. all of 7 minutes for you and in the south bay traveling along one. 85 in to menlo park around 27 minutes started. james, back to you. thanks a lot, right? it's 5, 0, one. and breaking news this morning, elon musk's plan to buy twitter is on hold. apparently. yeah. he tweeted this morning that the deal is pending because of spam and
fake accounts. >> with kron 4, sarah stinson standing by live in the city to explain. good morning, sarah. >> there's never a dull moment with this twitter deal. los appears like elon musk is backing out of his 44 billion dollar buyout of twitter and why take a look at what he tweeted this morning and it was at 3.30, this morning, very early tweet. he said twitter deal temporarily on hold pending detail supporting such calculation that spam slash fake accounts do indeed represent less than 5% of users. now, musk has previously tweeted that he wants to move spam bots from twitter as he would own. and 2, that would be one of his goals. but would that be enough to really just kind of curb this deal? the announcement from the tesla billionaire on twitter is another twist in the internal turmoil that has been caused by his plan to buy out twitter. 2 of the social media's top managers got fired yesterday. twitter stock has been plummeting and it
plummeted 18% since this morning's announcement. while tesla stock has jumped 5% which month, musk has said that he propose using that money to help fund the twitter deal. it's not clear whether the fake account issue could really ruin this twitter deal. but twitter said yesterday that the company is pausing most hiring except for business critical roles. attributing that to cutting down on labor costs to ensure that they're more efficient and even a memo went out to employees in the company has not hit growth in revenue milestones after the company begin to invest aggressively to expand its user base and revenue. now the future of must deal remains on. hold this morning. twitter has not commented on this. i'm sure twitter's board. is i don't know they're confused by it. i don't know if they're surprised by it or what, but we are certainly surprised by it. and it's been, you know, a lot with this deal. but darya james will continue to follow it right here from san francisco, home base of twitter. it's going to be
interesting. buckle never a dull moment with this story. thank you, sarah. >> time now is 5, 0, 3, in the south. bay crews will continue the demolition process of the vta building where the mass shooting happened last year. it tearing down that building is just one more step towards healing, hopefully for the victims and their families. kron four's will tran is on the story for us now from san jose. will. >> we're coming up on the one-year anniversary of the mass shooting that took place at the where 9 people ultimately killed and then a 10th person. >> couple of months ago in that person went back to work here and it was just simply overwhelming for that person. so that person committed suicide. 10 people altogether because some men went inside the vta building building be and started shooting his co-workers. let me show you video of the demolition. it actually started 2 days ago. this was the place where employees obviously went to also housed a lot of
equipment. it has been vacant since may. 26, since the mass shooting that took place with 57 year-old sam cassidy went inside and started shooting his co-workers randomly choosing certain people. and then the police officers from the santa clara county sheriff's department, which is literally down the block. they rushed in, closed in on him and ultimately cornered him where he committed suicide. that building. but it has been vacant. they've been deciding what to do with it. and they decided while it's still up is just simply too painful. and then they started tearing down the interior. some parts on the inside. what's going to happen today at noon is they will do the demolition on the outside. not sure. james story of how long this process will take. they will tear it down and then they will rebuild with another building. new memories. they want to have fresh start. of course, they're still working with the victims families because especially with a few days from now, we will be the one year anniversary of what happened. sam cassidy, i was here the second day of the
shooting. sam cassidy only lived a few miles from this location. he went down to this location, went through that. and at this particular point, they still don't have a rock solid motive and why he did it. they know that he was a longtime employee of eta and again, building b, which is inside that location. it was a crime scene for several weeks as nobody was allowed to go inside other than investigators building b has been vacant. and now nobody will be inside anymore as it will be demolished. back to you. thank you. will. >> 5, 0, 6, and happening today, one of the men accused of killing kron. 4 security guard kevin nishita will be in court. mitchell should is going to appear in front of a judge for a plea hearing. she'd oh was shot and killed last november in oakland while he was guarding one of our reporters, lebron gilbert and hershel hale are also accused in this case. hale was arrested, but police are still looking for gilbert. in the

expecting some fog to push its way along the coastline as well as along the bay to start the morning. that's going to burn off really quickly. and then that hot weather really groups our inland areas and even our bayshore cities getting pretty warm tomorrow. if the heat is a little too much for you, sunday is going to be a touch cooler highs mostly only in the low 80's for sunday and then increase marine layer there, too. so fog is definitely going to be making its return over the next several days as our inland areas heat up. that will keep our coastal areas a bit on the cooler side. high pressure is in the really building in now. and that's going to stay with us. keeping this forecast steady and dry. today's highs will be back into the 80's for concord, antioch, in napa, just to name a few spots. most of us well into the 70's today, a much warmer day than yesterday was in tomorrow. indeed, getting even warmer highs near 90 inland near 80 for some of our bayshore cities. sunday gets a bit more mild but still warm and we stay comfortable. and sunny all the way through next week right now. john, thank you for right. if you are

department has remained quiet on the matter, only releasing this short statement saying attorney general merrick garland directed u.s. marshals to provide additional support to ensure the safety of the justices. democrats remain focused on the issue of abortion this week while downplaying any threat posed by protesters. if protests are peaceful, yes. >> my house is there's protests 3, 4, times a week outside my house. >> that was tom dempsey reporting. the house committee investigating the january 6 attack on the capitol has issued a new round of subpoenas. yes, 5 house republicans, including top republican kevin mccarthy has received them. we have shot. hudson joining us live from washington now with more on this development. good morning. were shot. james darya. it's very rare that members of congress subpoena each other. but the committee says these 5 gop congressman >> have relevant information leading up to the events of january 6. the investigation into the january 6 attack on
