reports children ages one to for the most common way. reason for their death is actually drowning. that's the most common way that children one to 4 die. so it's so important that you adhere to those tips and be safe as we head into these hot summer months. i'm sarah stinson reporting live. we'll send it back to you. all right. thanks a lot, sarah. >> you >> okay. so what you just saw, there was the moment where a bullet narrowly missed an east bay couple that was driving along interstate 5.80. the couple says they were apparently caught in the crossfire of a freeway shooting. you can see just how terrifying it was with their dash camera capturing the entire think robert taylor per sackey actually had a chance to speak with them about what happened. >> you >> terrifying moments as bullets flew across i-580, while garrett mason and his

and 80's winds much like yesterday, 15 to 20 miles per hour gusts for the most part, not an exceptionally breezy day and skies clearing a little quicker than they did yesterday tomorrow morning. expect less of a dose of fog, mostly poor peninsula and even portions of the south and east bay, not as foggy for the north bay to start your day on friday, skies clear out a little quicker tomorrow and saturday morning, one more dose of fog during the morning. and then one last day with 70's and 80's for your highs before temperatures climb really quickly into sunday. as for daytime highs today, 60's in sf and at the coast. as for bayshore cities, mostly 70's, really, really beautiful stuff for foster city down through mountain view in the mid 70's today. also so nice for the south bay, all of the santa clara valley falling into the 70's today. same for the tri valley livermore at 78 hayward up to oakland and berkeley in the 60's. well, concord on up towards antioch, vacaville and fairfield in the 80's, our
warmest of spots. santa rosa at 79 with center fell at 77. tomorrow's highs as well. saturday is in the mid-eighties at our warmest then look at sunday mid 90's and triple digits by monday and tuesday. not so enjoyable. any more inland starting on sunday. so get ready to enjoy fully the next 3 days before the warm-up and enjoy this drive across the bay bridge. it's unusually calm out there. we do have the metering lights on, but things are not backed up in the least bit a 12 minute drive across the span looking absolutely beautiful as you're heading into the city, san mateo bridge, 13 minutes and at the limit, richmond center fell a little slow down there at the toll plaza. but then you'll pick back up speed as you make your way across the span, golden gate bridge. it's 26 minutes from novato down to the tolls. back to you. thanks. 7.48. is the time the gunman who killed 7 people during the 4th of july parade in highland park, illinois. not only >> confessed to that attack but told police he actually was thinking about launching a
bond as disturbing details about what he had planned investigators say after he shot dozens of people at the 4th of july parade, he then drove more than 2 hours to madison, wisconsin, where he considered another attack. police say he had another gun in his car and 60 rounds of ammunition. he did see a celebration that was occurring in madison. >> and he seriously contemplated using the fire army and his vehicle to commit another shooting. >> police say crimo said he didn't do it because he didn't prepare enough. meanwhile, we're learning more about red flags in his troubled past. police called to his home 2 times in 2019, including a violent threat he made about killing people. but still he was allowed to buy 5 guns, sir. the shooter passed 4 background checks despite
these reports of an attempted suicide. and the fact that he said he wanted to kill everyone and had this knife collection. how is that possible in a state with some of the strictest gun laws and how frustrating is that for you? so a couple things i made these comments yesterday that i think we need to increase our awareness about the red flag law. we can certainly get you the details of that red flag law. we have a little bit of information about that today. a just released police report details highland park police is interaction with the shooter in september 2019. >> it says robert stated that he was going to kill everyone in a redacted name was afraid to go home due to the nature of this threat and had a collection of knives in his bedroom. >> police talked to crimo and say he told them he wasn't going to hurt himself or anyone else. law enforcement says because the shooter's family did not press charges or request the weapons he would later by be taken away as part of the red flag law. the troubling incidents did not impact him buying guns. could the police have made that request, though, if the family didn't says the police went out to the home, could they have it on a case by case basis? and we depend on the
individual information. >> that they had at that time, despite the police calls in the violent online videos and the troubling paintings on the side of the house and images obtained exclusively by news nation. the shooter's angele telling news nation's adrian bankert on morning in america. this all came as a shock. >> i even knew about the incident. and i had no idea about and, know, we told but did you have any sense that bobby was disturbed in any way or or less 2 years? well, as the month and i saw no signs of trouble he showed russians towards me and the whole break. so on those low for me, those little signs, i saw nothing. mission to do this. >> it's 7.51 and san francisco assemblyman phil ting just announced a 30 million dollar grant to help stop crimes.
