6:10 am
top and today all the way through saturday, it will be at half-staff to honor the victims of what happened in texas. everybody sending their condolences out to texas, the victims and their families. but the contra costa county sheriff's department, there are also sending out extra deputies because let's face it, everybody is terrified the politicians will do what they do or what they want do. but the bottom line is that parents, the teachers, the administrators and the kids, they still have to go on. take a look at your screen. this was tweeted out by the contra costa county sheriff's department late last night just to ease the fears. i want to quickly say there is no credible threat to any school in the bay area in contra costa county. but it doesn't mean that people are not scared to death. and according to the contra costa county sheriff's department, they said on behalf of the contra costa sheriff's office, our deepest condolences to the family and friends of that texas school shooting victims.
6:11 am
our thoughts are also with the community and first responders. although there are no known threats in contra costa sheriff's office jurisdiction. i have ordered additional patrols around all of our schools. obviously, there are so many schools within this particular county so they will not be station at one school, but they will be patrolling around. i'm sure they will get out as they've done before. unfortunately, james this is they've had too much practice at this. let's face it. they've had too much practice at this. they will be patrolling the schools. oftentimes they'll get out to show a presence once the kids get to school as well. teachers and administrators. i have done this story way too many times. i can basically be their spokesman for them this morning that i've done this as far as to teachers and administrators who are free, they will also be asked to stand in front of the schools and in the hallways to walk around to also show a presence. everybody thinking about what's going on. and
6:12 am
once you drop off your kids this morning. you will see this flag at your particular school. also at half staff. >> ok, thanks a lot. and we will can continue to keep you updated throughout the day as more information comes in on this story, through our broadcast and also online. you can scan that qr code that you see on your screen that will take a kron 4 dot com work. we're compiling the stories and the various bits of information you're going to need to stay up to date on the latest with this. >> it's 6.12, right now. and changing gears to some other news. the state legislature is one step closer to banning police department from using the dna victims of assault and other criminal investigation. a bill banning the practice is now head of the assembly where it's expected to pass kron 4. sarah stinson is following the story for us from the newsroom. >> good morning, sir. >> yeah, this is a big step for the assault victims act that passed the senate unanimously and it's now heading to the assembly for policy committee hearings.
6:13 am
this bill aims to protect assault survivors by prohibiting the use of dna profiles collected from victims by police for any other purpose than to identify the attacker. meaning police could not use the victim's dna from a rape kit to later connect them to another crime. this bill was put together by senator scott wiener and assemblymember phil ting san francisco district attorney chesa boudin also sponsored the bill along with other groups. this bill came about after it was discovered right here in san francisco assault survivors. dna was being used against them and other unrelated crimes. the assault victims act would stop this from happening across the state. sen wiener says it's already hard enough for survivors to come forward and undergo invasive rape kit exam at the hospital. so the last thing they need is to fear it will be used against them in the future. assaults are significantly underreported, fewer than a quarter of survivors come forward to
6:14 am
police of those survivors. only a small percentage undergo the dna collection. there's already a federal law prohibiting the inclusion of victims dna in the national dna system. but there was no california state law to prevent hibbett this from happening and from its entering local law enforcement agencies, databases, legislation would remedy that. and so far it's only received bipartisan support. i'm sarah stinson reporting live in the newsroom. back to you. all right. thank you, sarah. 6.14, right now. and still ahead on the kron, 4 morning news, a new statewide is supposed to help californians conserve water. >> motivation will explain son who it applies to. and gas prices keep going up as you might be jumping in the car to see what the president's trying to do to get the prices down.

6:20 am
of equipment issues that are happening there on the track. so again, keeping a close eye on that 20 minute drive into the city this morning, maze that fremont street exit. i don't see any accidents or hazards, but traffic is building at the bay bridge early this morning. 13 minutes making their way across towards the peninsula via the san mateo bridge and the south bay traveling along one. 0 one. you can see the green across the map. 30 minute drive from 85 in to menlo park to 18. 82. i don't see any issues over there. crockett about 15 minutes for you as you're traveling. and then let's check on 8.80, northbound moving along nicely. slight delay to hey, we're on the southbound side of 80 darya. james, back to you. thanks a lot. and we are talking a rain about the gas prices heading into memorial day that we reached another peak. >> a record high this week and the white house is scrambling to try to bring down those prices before the real crush of traffic happens, which is tomorrow thursday and friday and as a story. >> with gas prices and the

6:22 am
everything you buy it cost more because of the transportation and with diesel supplies running low on the east coast, the biden administration is now considering tapping a rarely used diesel reserve as the short term solution. >> and the administration is under pressure to act fast with more than 39 million people expected to travel next weekend. increasing the demand for fuel. for now in washington, i'm anna wiernicki. back to you. >> all right. let's take a peek at the pump. prices them because napa is now number one. we're number one. it's not a good thing. a penny higher than san francisco which led the pack just a couple days ago. and then you can see santa fell coming in at 3rd. these are all the gas prices there. the averages throughout the bay area. it looks like the least expensive at the moment is fairfield delay. 0, 6, 0, 7, now we'll take a break 6.22. at the time. coming up on the kron 4 morning news. do you know your evacuation zone in case of emergency? well, we're going break down a handy new tool that will help you keep.
