all of this shooting comes on the heels of a violence at jelly's in july. this prompted the city to shut down nightclubs with problems. mayor newsom is expected to sign that law into place. san francisco police say only 2% of the city's 1500 nightclubs are known trouble spots. despite the number the department is well coming the new ordinance but the security manager of 10:15 says the city should try to work with club observers -- club owners rather than against them. he says there should be body searches, body wands. we're live in san francisco, tara moriarty, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you, tara. 8:02. now, san francisco police are look also looking for suspects in a deadly shooting near union square. one woman was killed there.
a man and a woman were hurt. all of this happened shortly after 9:00 last night on mason near geary avenue. investigators say the three victims were shot in a barrage of gunfire. in this area, there's a lot of rounds fire. officers are investigating at this point. >> so far, authorities have not released the name of the woman killed. the other two victims are expected to survive. police say it appears the three did not know each other and it's possible they were not the intended victims. >> oakland police say five people were wound bounded in an overnight shooting that happened just before 11:00 p.m. on international boulevard. all five victims are expected to survive. but police are still looking for suspects and witnesses. a woman faces an arraignment for sexually molesting two

a controversial fast food toy ban goes in effect today. this is already creating confusion. allie rasmus has more hopefully to clear this up. >> reporter: the toy restriction does not apply to all kids' meals. the restriction applies to meal that have more than 480 calories, more than 600 milligrams of sodium. this kids' meal we just bought at carl's junior. if you buy the cheeseburger and the fries, that puts you over the 485 calorie limit. therefore, your child would not get a toy with the kids' meal. if you skip the fries and get a cheeseburger with orange juice then you would be under that limit and you would be able to get a toy for your child.
>> i think this will discourage people from this. >> reporter: why? >> because there's not a toy coming with it. if it's just a regular hamburger, i don't think they will find it as food. >> my kids eat happy meals at mcdonald's and they don't get the toys with the hal -- the happy meals with the toys in them. >> reporter: restaurants could face fines from $250 for a first offense up to $1,000 for multiple violations. santa clara county is the first in the nation to pass an ordinance like this. ken yeager proposed the incident. he says one in four kids in the county are either overweight or obese. the toy restrictions are a good way to disassociate a toy from a good meal. the ordinance only applies to
restaurants in unincorporated santa clara county. so there will only be a handful of restaurants affected by the ordinance. this carl's junior is in santa clara county but it's in san jose city limits. therefore, the restrictions and the ban don't apply here. so again, where you buy a kids' meal and what you order will make all of the difference when it comes to whether or not your child gets a toy with his or her meal. allie rasmus, ktvu channel 2 news. >> now we'll ally all hungry.
