6:03 am
goingato hit the ground together. just like we're staying in those low and away as we can. >> and with the gun was taken to the hospital and he died there. the mother was injured, but not from the police shooting, perhaps from something that happened in the car before they got there. she is in the hospital recovering. yeah. as for the children, they ran away from the car after those shots were fired. they have since been reunited with their mother. >> the officers involved are on paid administrative leave. now while the shooting is being investigated. >> all okay. >> san francisco police are looking for 3 involved in this robbery and shooting that happened outside a nightclub earlier in the year was actually june 25th that this happened on 11th street outside. >> of a bar near the audio nightclub and the dna lounge. if you know that area. >> the fight started. they think after a robbery that happened inside the nightclub
6:04 am
and then you could see went outside one person swinging a handgun at another. then shots were fired. one woman was shot multiple times and had life threatening injuries and police are looking for 2 men and one woman as the attackers. so take a closer look. they didn't give us sketches of the man and one one of the men and one of the woman. >> the man believed to be the shooter and the woman who fled with him. they are in their 20's or 30's. >> developing news this morning, david, the pap the man charged with attacking house speaker nancy pelosi's husband has pleaded not guilty. now on all the federal charges he's facing. he is charged with the assault of an immediate family member of the u.s. official and also that carries a maximum sentence of 30 years. he's also charged with one count of attempted kidnapping of a u.s. official that could also add potentially up to 20 years to his sentence. the pap is also facing multiple state charges. as we know, we spoke with legal analyst steve clarke about the significance of the
6:05 am
federal and the state charges. >> i think what you'll see is the federal court proceedings taking a back seat to what's 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. another hearing is set for november. 30th. in the east bay, a former berkeley police officer who was fired from the department has taken screengrabs now of disturbing text messages allegedly exchanged between fellow officers and now the interim berkeley police chief jennifer lewis might not be confirmed in her new role. kron four's with to call explains. >> on thursday, november 10th, former 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

6:07 am
when she became interim chief should duty says lewis is impending confirmation as chief should be delayed, followed by an investigation into her knowledge of the alleged policy police watchdog group secure justice agrees. the berkeley police department is not that large >> i not convincing that she knew that there are no rumors going on, that there would be no questions about the numbers. these guys were pulling that. >> but, you know, that may be the case, you know, to be ignorant. but i i believe, you know, there's there's no need to approve her contract tonight. secure justice is calling for attorney general rob bonta to conduct an independent investigation. nathan mozelle, vice chair of the police accountability board says in a statement, quote. >> i call on the berkeley city council to delay the confirmation of interim chief louis until a thorough independent investigation has been conducted by the police
6:08 am
accountability board. >> and the public has had the opportunity to review the evidence when reached for comment. a police department spokesperson said they could not comment on personnel matters. >> and deferred to a city spokesperson. he says the city is hiring an external investigator to verify the allegations. >> in that same response, interim chief lewis says that she just became aware of the allegations thursday and that if at any time she had been made aware of the alleged arrest quota policy, she would have opened an investigation. she says, quote, i was appointed as interim chief in march 2021. after these alleged incidents occurred. these allegations are extremely concerning and they deserve to be investigated thoroughly. >> all run for >> it's 608, and new this morning, we are starting to learn how many people in the bay area are about to lose their job these amazon layoffs
6:09 am
nationwide. the new york times reporting the company plans to lay off in total about 10,000 employees across the country. and will tran is standing by live in sunnyvale with. >> the bay area impact. good morning. well, >> james, we are getting more details on those amazon layoffs. 10,000, as you mentioned, 263 of them. we'll be right behind me at the sunnyvale office. they will be in human resources, corporate engineers. they will not right now as things stand the factories, the processing centers. but at the corporate offices. but nonetheless, every number has a family. and if they will be impacted, they will be able to keep their jobs. so these layoffs are not effective immediately. they will be able to work through the holidays until january, 17th with full pay up until then it's the law that they have to announce 60 days out for layoffs, larger than 50 employees. amazon. what they are doing is very similar to
6:10 am
the other huge iconic companies that we know. speaking of companies like facebook, right? they are located in the bay area. they're laying off 11,000 workers. many of them in san francisco lift laying off about 7,000 excuse me. 3700 workers. i'm talking about twitter as well. they're laying off people. so this is going on and on and hopefully the bleeding will stop as far as lift. i stand corrected its 700 and twitter laying off 3700 employees worldwide. as far as amazon, they're talking about one to 3% of their workforce as they have about one and a half million workers worldwide. this is not a good sign, guys because jeff bezos is even talking about telling people not to spend during the holidays as far as the big ticket items. so this could be a foreshadowing of what's to come in our economy. >> ok, thank you. we'll 6.10.

6:37 am
stuff coming from public health. infectious disease experts say with covid cases ticking up. >> having everyone planning to a 10 year thanksgiving gathering test before coming adds that extra layer of protection. the key thing with the test is yeah, it's not a completely reliable test in a negative test. doesn't say. >> with 100% certainty that you don't have covid. but it says with a pretty high level of certainty that you not infectious with covid. that's the question you're asking. but testing is just one step. another is staying home. if you have any signs of illness, if anybody. >> has sniffles or a little sore throat or a scratchy throat, i think it's just an allergy. no. the agreement would be you just don't come if you have any symptoms that could possibly be covid or influenza rsv. >> doctors say gathering outdoors rather than indoors remains a better option if possible. but the best way to protect yourself is the new omicron specific booster. >> that is probably the
6:38 am
backstop to prevent you from getting really sick, winding up in the hospital and tragically, some people don't. so that's number one. >> doctors say recent studies indicate the new booster is better at fighting both ba 5 and the new variant bq one. and even though thanksgiving is less than 2 weeks away, getting the booster now can be helpful. you begin to see. >> immunologic benefit from a booster really after several days. and it seems to peek your reaches its maximum at 2 weeks. but if you get it in the next couple of days, it will have some value for at thanksgiving event. so if you have the opportunity to do, you haven't done it yet. now would be a terrific time to do it. dan kerman kron, 4 news. >> 6.38 and for your health. a new study says that e-cigarettes and marijuana may be just as bad for your heart as smoking regular cigarettes. the study was done at ucsf on rats. researchers exposed the rats to a singular daily smoking or vaping ce vaping session. i can imagine the
