mother and her 3 kids in that prius with this man with an armed he handgun. they say they tried to negotiate by, but before they could begin negotiations, it appeared that the man was attempting to shoot the woman or the kids. and that's when they decided to shoot this. 36 year-old man. now you're looking at video from viewers that they sent him to the newsroom after those fatal shots were fired. people were running. we spoke to a man who was just steps away when those gunshots went off. >> i an officer say we're trying to help you put down the gun and the soon as we heard that, then pop pop, 2 gunshots. and we all just going to hit the ground together. just like we're staying in those low and away as we can. >> these are pictures of police rushing in after the shooting that 36 year-old man was rushed to the hospital but died. the 3 kids all ran out of the car after the shooting and have since been reunited

going on in state court because those charges in state court or morse more serious because they carry a life sentence potentially >> well, the paps attorney has refused to talk to reporters or comment on the case in any way. another hearing is set for november. 30th. in the east bay, a former berkeley police officer who was fired from the department, took screen grabs of disturbing text messages allegedly exchanged between officers and now the interim berkeley police chief jennifer lewis may not be confirmed in her new role proper sleep explains. >> berkeley police officer cory should duty emailed the berkeley mayor and city council alleging that while a member of the department's downtown and by task force is he claims officers were instructed to use tactics like stop and frisk with no reasonable suspicion of a crime. >> specifically targeting homeless and black people should do. says he and his team were ordered by sergeant

>> well, james, at the office right behind me, it will be 263 10,000. that is just a sliver of their workforc%. but of course, everyone has lives and kids. so it will make a huge impact to that particular family. amazon is scaling down. don't worry about your packages. i know a lot of people worried about that at this particular office. they say it's going to be corporate engineers, hr software department. they have about one and a half million people in their workforce worldwide. but even jeff bezos yesterday in an interview said that he expects a downturn, which is why he's even telling people james and area you might want to start saving. don't get the big purchases for the holidays. so it's almost against his self interest to say that. but you get what's going on. layoffs are happening and we're seeing this not just an amazon, but at many huge companies in the bay area. so take a look at your screen. facebook is also
a tech giant. they've already announced that they will lay off about 11,000 workers, 360 of them out of san francisco. lyft will lay off 700 twitter, of course, making news daily. they are laying off 3700 workers worldwide. as far as this particular location, they are guaranteed a job through the holidays. so that's a little relief to them. but they will be let go come mid january with full pay. by the way, back to you. >> thank you. well, 5.11, the breaking news, the president of poland and the nato chief say there's no evidence that a missile that landed in poland near the border with ukraine was an intentional attack at this point to say the missile landed in a rural area killing 2 people. but this morning, the polish president says it was most likely an accident. this is i will. what he said was the misses are likely fired by ukraine as part of their anti missile defense.
yes. now the explosion did cause some tense moments. there for nato because if it had been a deliberate attack on poland by russia, well, that would have triggered potentially article 5 of nato's tree where any member under attack is defended by all other members in nato and that could have escalated the war in ukraine to something entirely more than it is right now. but again, the polish president and the chief of nato say they're at this point is no evidence that that missile was fired into poland intentionally an investigation into the incident is still ongoing. it's 5.12. and coming up on the kron, 4 morning news arrests are just made now in a concert murder that happened customize your kitchen at lowe's with the samsung bespoke refrigerator. buy more save more on samsung appliances plus get $350 off instantly when you buy any 4 pieces. shop daily steals this black friday exclusively at lowe's. a breakfast croissant plus seasoned potatoes for three bucks? and they're redshirting you? it's just a standard work shirt.

pressure. ridge is in place and this will continue to keep us dry throughout the remainder of the week. those offshore winds will be lighter for the bay area will help to keep skies pretty clear for most of us today and tomorrow, despite a few low clouds near the coast at times should remain nice and clear and definitely dry through the weekend. before thanksgiving. so if you have travel plans this weekend, you're really good to go 60's for your highs in sf at the coast along the bay shore and pretty much all of us are sharing that same range of mostly mid to upper 60's today saying carlos at 67, san jose at 66 for your daytime high. well, looking at some mid to upper 60's for the east bay as well. oakland walnut creek, concord, among few spots at 66. well, benicia fairfield and vacaville among are only spots at 70 degrees today. it's definitely a good one to step outside. enjoy some of that sunshine. but you have plenty more chances to do just that as we round out this weekend work into the weekend. only one chance of rain between now and thanksgiving. that's a slight chance of showers in the north bay on
monday and a better chance for the rest of us into tuesday. thanksgiving looks dry and better chances of rainfall in your long term forecast after the holiday. >> rain and john, thank you. unfortunately we have a hot spot. this is in pittsburgh westbound highway 4 west of bailey road. so right there on the map, all lanes are currently blocked there. we're going to keep a close eye on that as the morning progresses traveling into the city, no delay, 7 minutes maze to that freeman. she exit your san mateo bridge. put you at 12 minutes. 80 to 101 heading across towards the peninsula, the south bay. we're in the green 27 minutes along 1, 0, 1, 85 to menlo park to 80 82. no major issues or delays there. and if you're taking 8.80, san leandro down to milpitas about 20 minutes darya. james, back to you. >> thank you very much. rain to 5.18, is the time. and in national news this morning, many people have wondered ever since the last election, if former president donald trump was going to be running for the office again, wonder no
more. >> you made the announcement. our dc correspondent basil john has the latest. >> more than 700 days since the last election, former president donald trump said it was time to give a supporters what they have been asking for. >> in order to make america great glorious again. i am tonight announcing my candidacy for president >> in front of a crowd at the mar-a-lago resort. former president donald trump announced he is launching a new campaign to retake the white house. america's comeback starts. >> right. >> now. >> this announcement comes a week after many of the candidates he backed during the mid terms. but that's not stopping some republicans from offering their support. i support president trump 1000%. president trump, he excites people. he image energizes our base. >> and he increases voter turnout. but for many democrats, this is anything but welcome news that he's unfit to be president. >> ohio democratic senator sherrod brown and new york democratic congressman hakeem
jeffries. so the midterm results show most americans want to move past trump. the reason. >> republicans didn't do nearly as well as they thought they would be is because of donald trump, the so-called g o p red wave. turned into a red wedding. has the republican response. the colt leader should run again. >> governor ron desantis is the man some are calling on to challenge trump for the republican nomination earlier tuesday, he shrugged off recent attacks from the former president. when you're doing when you're leading, when you're getting getting things done. yeah, you take incoming fire. that's just the nature of it. >> well, president trump announced his own candidacy. he made no mention of a possible running mate reporting in washington. i'm basil, john. >> happening today, the senate is expected to vote on the respect for marriage act. it would ensure that the supreme court cannot overturn the right for same and interracial couples to get married. this is something that conservative justice clarence thomas
mentioned as a possibility when the court overturn roe v wade, today's vote will give a good indication as to how much support there really is. we determined that this legislation was too important to risk failure. >> so we waited to get bipartisanship. a chance. i hope for the sake of tens of millions of americans that at least 10 republicans will vote with us to protect marriage equality into law. soon. the rights and dignity of millions of americans depend on. >> the legislation also clarifies the government will not recognize polygamous marriages and that it respects religious freedom. those are major sticking points. however, for the republicans. so we'll see who votes for it. >> for your money this morning, there is a possibility the biden administration could extend the payment pause on monthly student loan bills yet again. so this has the legal blows to the president's student loan forgiveness program continue
to mount. the washington post reported this week that officials in the white house are beginning to discuss the possibility of another extension. if the lawsuits continue to thwart the loan forgiveness plan, if so it would be the 8th time that borrowers will be given more time. >> it's 5.21. and coming up on the kron 4 morning news. you're looking here at a live shot of sfo and there have been a number of flight attendants picking. we've talked about this there. contract negotiations are not going well. so we're going to take a look at that issue after the break.
