>> right, dave. good morning to you. this was the deadliest mass shooting in american history. authorities say it was carried out by a man who pledged his allegiance to the islamic state during the attack. the gunman targeted the pulse nightclub near downtown orlando which bills itself as the city's premiere gay nightclub. just after 2 a.m. on sunday morning, club goers heard gunfire. they scrambled to escape. authorities say the shooter, omar mateen, used an assault rifle to open fire on the crowd. now, after shooting more than 100 people, the gunman took several people hostage inside a restroom. police negotiated for several hours before using an armored vehicle to smash a hole in the wall of the club to rescue those hostages. the shooter ultimately was killed in a gun battle with a s.w.a.t. team. for the officers who responded early sunday morning, it was a scene of absolute horror. >> many of them saw some carnage that they would never
see in any other location. if you think about this, this is not a war zone that we are living in. this is a civilized society and we had to deal with something unthinkable. >> now, the fbi says the shooter had previously been investigated for possible ties to terrorism, but ultimately was cleared in those investigations. according to authorities, he legally purchased the assault rifle and the handgun that were used inside that weekend attack inside that nightclub in orlando. this morning authorities said that nearly all of the victims have now been positively identified and the work is underway right now to notify all of their loved ones. >> thank you. survivors of the orlando nightclub attack are now talking about their desperate struggle to stay alive during the mass shooting. george ortiz was in the crowded nightclub surrounded by chaos when he saw a man with a semi- automatic rifle shooting people. >> what i saw and i can actually hear it, was like
bullets flying. flying in. the people that was on the floor, like, you know, one the body, he got shots and those. that is the last thing i saw before i went to the restroom. that's when i went to the restroom and i pray for my life and the police came and save us. >> orlando officials have set up a website where they are posting the names of the victims after their families have been notified. we have a link to that site. it's ktvu.com. it's under our web links tab. many gathered outside the pulse nightclub yesterday. most of them said they knew someone who might have been inside when the attack happened, and they hadn't heard from their loved ones yet. police and other officials were able to give relatives and friends of the victims who waited outside news more quickly. some were relieved to hear about victims taken to the hospital. others were devastated when they found out their loved ones had died inside the nightclub. authorities at this point are still notifying the families of some of the victims.
time is 7:05. across the nation people are showing support for the victims and survivors of that florida massacre. take a look at what we found in san francisco's castro district. people are leaving flowers and candles and messages of condolences at harvey milk plaza. christian kafton of ktvu is there. he will have reaction from the community coming up at 7:30 as well as from san francisco supervisor scott weiner. meantime, a makeshift memorial is growing outside the historic stonewall inn in new york city remembering the victims in florida. that manhattan bar was the site of the 1969 police raid that led to dramatic street riots and launched the gay rights movement. people here hugged, prayed, and left signs. in seattle, a rainbow flag on top of the famous space needle has been lowered to half- staff. that flag is on top of the landmark celebrating gay pride
month. hundreds gathered in a park last night. they held a very emotional candlelight vigil. >> while the fbi leads the investigation into the shooting, president obama said this was an attack on all of us. the president called it especially heartbreaking for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. >> we pray for their families who are grasping for answers with broken hearts. we stand with the people of orlando who have endured a terrible attack on their city. although it's still early in the investigation, we know enough to say that this was an act of terror and an act of hate. >> president obama said the pulse nightclub was more than just a nightclub. it was a symbol of solidarity and empowerment for the gay community. he repeated his call for stricter gun laws. >> hillary clinton is joining the american people in praying for the victims. on facebook she posted, we need
to keep guns out of the hands of terrorists or other violent criminals. she said this is the deadliest mass shooting in the united states. it reminds us that weapons of war have no place on our streets. presidential candidate bernie sanders had strong words for isis. >> it goes without saying, in my mind, that isis must be destroyed and that we have got to do everything humanly possible to prevent these types of tragedies from occurring again. >> sanders also expressed condolences for the victims of the orlando nightclub shootings and offered prayers for the injured. sanders says he believes there should be a complete sales ban on automatic weapons. >> and on twitter donald trump posted, horrific incident in florida. praying for all the victims and name lease. when will this stop? when we get tough, smart, and
vigilant. many are criticizing donald trump for his tweets about the shooting, including one where he said he appreciates the congrats for being right on islamic terrorism. another tweet read, what has happened in orlando is just the beginning. our leadership is weak and ineffective. i called it and i asked for the ban. must be tough. now, the presumptive republican presidential nominee once again called for ban on muslims entering the united states. >> in 20 minutes we will hear from the suspect's father and ex-wife. the red flag she says she saw in the course of their relationship. and in other news, the warriors could win it all tonight, but they have to do it without draymond green. up next, the fine he could face if he shows up at oracle arena for game 5 of the nba finals. well, mother nature decided to give us another cool down.
welcome back to "mornings on 2". it's 7:12. tonight the warriors try to wrap up their second straight nba title after beating cleveland in game 4. they can possibly win the title at home at oracle in front of the home fans, but they are going to play tonight without their emotional leader draymond green. ktvu fox 2's janine de la vega, you're outside oracle arena. it's a big story. you have more on tonight's game. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dave. yeah, it's going to be loud here inside oracle arena. a lot is riding on this game, and the player that really wants to be here is draymond green. he is suspended, so he is not allowed to attend the game. but there are media reports circulating that green is in talks with the league dom -- to come to the game.
he was suspended by the nba yesterday after the league determined he committed a flagrant foul in game 4. it was his fourth overall. now, this is the play that was reviewed. green and lebron james got tangled up. james knocked over green and then stepped over him. that's when green swiped his hand and made contact with james' groin. here is what warriors coach steve kerr when asked what he said to green about the incident. >> that's just something that stays within the team. it's not anything i'm going to comment on. i am disappointed for him that he can't play in a big game. the ruling has been made and we have got move on. >> reporter: before green was suspend the, some sports analysts were speculating he could be named the mvp for the finals. but now it's really unknown how the fouls and the suspension will factor into that. golden state leads the series 3-
1. coach kerr said other players will fill the void. they are confident going into game 5. of course, it's got to feel good playing here at home. we know that metalica is going to open up tonight's game. it starts at 6 p.m. tonight. back to you. >> we will be watching. thank you. janine. 7:14. a lot of people went on social media after hearing draymond green was suspended. warriors center tweeted this out saying, flagrant versus technical foul? >> ray speights getting in on the comments with this post showing a little baby bottle emoji suggesting perhaps lebron james is being a bit of a cry baby. >> perhaps one of the more poignant tweets by steph curry's wife. high road, invisible bridge used to step over said person when open floor is available left to right. >> well, it was a ride for the san jose sharks and their fans.
it came to an end at the sap center when the pittsburgh penguins won the stanley cup. the penguins scored first in game 6 on a power play. just about a minute later kris letang scored, gave the penguins the lead back. the sharks pulled martin jones from goal at the end of the game to have an extra man. pittsburgh added an empty net goal. tough for the sharks to watch on their home ice. >> the end is like hitting a wall. you have been going since september, we showed up here. 106 games. a special group, you know. only one team can win. >> just disappointed. it's been a long journey. just so see it end is tough. >> it definitely hopes knowing that you have done it once before and that can you find that special group and put in
the right work and have the right guys. it can happen again. so there is teams that have done it back-to-back years. >> sidney crosby won the mvp trophy. >> a great season. hey, sal, everybody behaving? i am afraid to ask. 880? >> yeah, 880 is okay. dave and gasia, traffic is okay on 880 northbound and southbound. you see some slow traffic in the east bay. usually at about 8:00 or so we see the backup here. so you have a little bit of an opportunity to get past the coliseum before it starts backing up in the northbound direction. at the bay bridge toll plaza you will see some slow traffic that is there. it is going to be backed up for about a 25 to 30, maybe a 40-
minute delay. 680 is moderate as you drive on highway 4. it's going to be slow. so even though it is the middle of june, certainly some commutes seem to be full strength. 7:17. another man who is full strength. hello, steve paulson. >> it's tough on a monday sometimes, sal. you know what i mean. thank you, sir. a lot of low clouds and fog are in place, and it's going to be a cool week for many here. in fact, well inland temperatures might be a good 15 degrees below average. we should have some low or mid 80s, and we might be hard pressed to get above 68. san jose 84 yesterday. 75 today. livermore from 86 to 78. palo alto 79 to 74. santa rosa from 76 to 73. they started to cool off yesterday, as did the santa clara valley. everybody will today. speaking of san jose, 75. that's five below average. they should be 80 this time of year. the record 100 not that long ago. 2000. the record low is a long time
ago. 36 way back in 1893. low clouds and fog making it out to travis. so fairfield along with a really good breeze. 25 gusts to 35. that tells you everything you need to know. west 14. west-southwest. west-southwest or so. it's on on shore or sea breeze direction. 60 for a few. cool readings in the north bay. east bay temps stuck most of the morning. they are in the 50s except for pleasanton. concord 56. pittsburg 57. black hawk 65. 77 las vegas. not a bad week. temperatures will be slightly below average if you have business or travel plans down to las vegas. the weekend though starts to warm up. 53 ukiah. 50s for monterey. tahoe city had 5. 737 truckee. 39 south lake tahoe. the low clouds will be with us most of the week.
they will get chewed up because a strong system is poised to move in wednesday night into thursday. thursday is the best day of rain for us locally if we do get it. it will income the north bay. probably mendocino county, lake county. it's going to be noticeably cooler, windy, and i think that fog bank will be making a huge push tomorrow. we will get some drizzle, but the main day is wednesday into thursday. there night be some measurable amounts santa rosa north will ease into it. we will see. deal with it on wednesday. low clouds. breezy. windy for some. 70s and 80s inland. by tomorrow it will be 60s and 70s for everybody with some upper 50s. i mean, clearlake, ukiah, pittsburg, antioch brentwood out of the 80s and settling into the 60s and 70s. other locations are taking the plunge today. it's going be to a cool, breezy to windy week and again maybe some rain, especially thursday. >> all right. okay. thank you, steve. >> you bet. we have showing you the outpouring of support.

about why this keeps happening. but we wanted to also be in solidarity with orlando with all of these beautiful people who were gunned down. >> reporter: now, when you come up, we talked briefly about changes in terms of security here in the castro. let's talk about changes we can expect to see in the neighborhood, and pride festivities. first let's start with immediate changes you are looking to make here in the castro district. >> well, i spoke with the chief of police yesterday, and he and the department are extremely focused on making sure that pride season is safe, that the parade and festival are safe, that our bars and nightclubs are safe. so later this week i am going to be convening a meeting at city hall with the police department and with our bar and club owners from the castro and delta market to make sure that we are having good
communication, that bars and clubs understand what they need to do to be as safe as possible and have good collaboration. we are going to have a great pride season. it's going to be safe and festive, and we are not going to let this hate crime get us down. we are going to respond by celebrating and embracing the community. >> reporter: we heard some of the bars and restaurants are going to be increasing security. can we expect to see that soon? can we expect an increased police presence in this neighborhood? >> yes. i think we will see an increased focus. i know that a lot of the bars and clubs are thinking very hard about how they can take their already existing security and make it even better, and also they want to know what they need to do. so our law enforcement agencies need to be providing advice and information to the bars and clubs so that we can make sure this never happens here. >> reporter: okay. thank you so much for joining us this morning. again, as you can tell, certainly sorrow on many
people's minds. security also paramount on a lot of people's minds. over here you can see the tributes still on the ground at the harvey milk plaza and these notes here. i pointed them out earlier to you. a note to the people who are in orlando. we are praying for orlando. such a sad time. may god be with the family and friends. literally hundreds of notes like this. so clearly the pain in orlando being felt right here in san francisco and through the bay area. >> cristian, thank you. now to san jose where a crowd of people gathered at a community center to help each other cope with the tragedy. rainbow flags at half-staff at the community center on the alameda. supervisor ken jaeger spoke to the crowd. >> how many massacres is this going to take? it's just a matter of time until there is each segment of our society will be the victims

bruno. back to the desk. the deadly mass shooting at a gay club in orlando yesterday. 50 people, including the gunman, are dead. dozens more are hospitalized. >> this is being investigated as an act of terror. alex savidge, you say investigators are talking to people who knew the gunmen. they are trying to find out if he acted alone or with help from a group? >> yeah, that is part of the investigation happening now by federal authorities. we know the man who carried out the deadliest mass shooting in american history was described, has been described as violent and unstable by many who knew him. and it appears as though he was inspired by isis when he opened fire early sunday morning. this morning we are learning more about the victims. more information coming to light. here is a tweet that was sent out by your lieutenant governor. you see it says one of the victims names. edward sotomayor jr. 34 years old. travel agency manager and university of san francisco
graduate. and that information just coming out a short time ago as we learn more about the 49 people, innocent people gunned down inside that club. the massacre happened at the pulse nightclub, which bills itself as orlando's premiere gay nightclub. as club goers realized someone was shooting, they rushed to get out of the place. authorities say the gunman, identified add omar mateen, fired an assault rifle into that packed club, hitting more than 100 people. as orlando police officers responded there to that scene, the shooter then took several people hostage inside a restroom. police negotiated with the gunman for several hours before finally using an armored vehicle to smash a hole in the wall of the club and rescue those hostages. >> based on statements made by the suspect, based on information we received from the suspect and from the hostages and people inside, we believe further loss of life
was imminent. i made the decision to commence the rescue operation. >> reporter: and the police chief believes the carnage could have been worse had they not gone inside the club the way that they did. the police chief says the gunman came out of that same hole that had been punched in the wall of the club and that's when he got into a gun battle with police, with s.w.a.t. officers, and he was killed. authorities say while mateen was barricaded in the bathroom for those three hours, he called up 911 and pledged his allegiance to the islamic state. mateen had previously been investigated for possible ties to terrorism, but he had been cleared. despite being on the fbi's radar because of prior investigations, mateen was able to legally purchase the weapons he used in yesterday's attack. >> thank you. across the country people are showing their support for victims and survivors of the florida massacre. in san francisco's castro
district people have been leaving candles and writing messages on the sidewalk there. ktvu's christian kafton is there. at 8:30 he will bring us reaction from the community and talk about changing security plans for upcoming pride events in san francisco. a makeshift memorial in new york city. the manhattan borough was the site of the 1969 police raid that led to industry riots, which many consider the beginning of the gay rights movement. people hugged, prayed, and also left signs. >> in seattle, a rainbow flag on top of the famous space space needle is at half-staff. it's to celebrate gay pride month. last night hundreds of people also gathered in a seattle park for a very emotional candlelight vigil. and pairs is honoring the lives of the victims. this photo was posted on twitter by the mayor of paris. you can see the eiffel tower lit up in the rainbow colors
for the lbgt community. city leaders in paris also held a moment of silence this morning. >> it does mean a lot that you organized this. i appreciate it very, very much. it's a very sad day in the united states. >> that was u.s. ambassador glyn davies in thailand thanking members of the lbgt community in bangkok earlier today for holding that vigil for orlando. several countries have come to stand with orlando including south korea, australia, israel, and the united kingdom. >> president obama said this was an attack on all of us. the president called it especially heartbreaking for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. >> we pray for their families who are grasping for answers with broken hearts. we stand with the people of orlando who have endured a terrible attack on their city. although it's still early in
the investigation, we know enough to say that this was an act of terror and an act of hate. >> president obama said the pulse nightclub was more than just a nightclub. it was a symbol of solidarity and empowerment for the gay community. he also repeated his call for stricter gun laws. 8:09. hillary clinton says she is joining the american people in praying for the victims. on facebook she posted, quote, we need to keep guns like the one used last night out of the hands of terrorists or other violent criminals. and she said this is the deadliest mass shooting in the united states. it reminds us once more that weapons of war have no place on our streets. presidential candidate bernie sanders had strong words about isis. >> it goes without saying, in my mind, that isis must be destroyed and that we have got to do everything humanly possible to prevent these types
of tragedies from occurring again. >> sanders also expressed condolences for the victims of the orlando nightclub shootings and offered prayers for the injured. he believes there should be a complete sales ban on automatic weapons. and republican presidential candidate donald trump tweeted, horrific incident in florida. praying for all the victims and their families. when will this stop? when will we get tough, smart, and vigilant? >> and many are criticizing trump for his tweets about the shooting, including one where he said he appreciates the congrats for being right on islamic terrorism. the tweet read, what happened in orlando is just the beginning. our leadership is weak and ineffective. i called it and asked for the ban. must be tough. the presumptive republican nominee once again called for a ban on muslims entering the united states. time is 8:10. in 19 minutes a live report from the scene where the
investigation continues. plus, we are elive in the -- we're live in the castro as a memorial is growing this morning. and we are live inside oracle arena where the warriors are looking to become the nba champs for two years in a row. but they will have to do it without one of their most valuable players. we will tell you about the impact and how the team is feeling going into tonight's game. good morning. we are looking at really slow traffic almost everywhere. 24, 80, 101. it's not a good morning for the commute. i will tell you where the slowdowns are. here we go with a big fog bank and significant cool-down. you might be surprised by the forecast highs as we get to wednesday and thursday. hey pal? you ready?
can you pick me up at 6:30? ah... (boy) i'm here! i'm here! (cop) too late. i was gone for five minutes! ugh! move it. you're killing me. you know what, dad? i'm good. (dad) it may be quite a while before he's ready, but our subaru legacy will be waiting for him. (vo) the longest-lasting midsize sedan in its class. the twenty-sixteen subaru legacy. it's not just a sedan. it's a subaru.
get ready. tonight the warriors will try to wrap up their second straight nba title after beating cleveland in game 4. they have a chance to win the championship at oracle right in front of the home crowd. >> however, dave, they will be playing without their emotional leader draymond green. green may not even be able to be inside oracle watching his team. >> that's deep. ktvu fox 2's janine de la vega, she is inside oracle right now. i know the workers are preparing the arena for the fans, right? >> reporter: they are. they are. we still haven't seen the t-
shirts on the seats. there was a concert last night in the arena. so right now workers are getting this place into shape for game 5. it's expected to be a sellout crowd. of course, everyone is talking about how the warriors are going to have to win against the cavaliers without draymond green, who has been such a valuable a player during the finals. he was suspended by the nba yesterday after they reviewed this play. green and lebron james were tangled up. james knocked over green and stepped over him. green swiped his hand and made contact with james' groin. it was green's fourth flagrant foul point which triggered the automatic suspension. here is how klay thompson reacted. >> it's disappointing, but not gonna let it get us down. we have the next man up approach all year. draymond, we know it's going to kill him not being there, but we are going to do it as a team and win for him and go out there and make a statement on
our home floor. >> reporter: golden state leads the easy series 3-1. some sportswriters are saying green's absence could give the cavaliers an edge. warriors coach steve kerr says other players will help fill that void. one of the questions is if the warriors win and become the champs two years in a row, will green be inside oracle? right now, he is barred from being inside. he is reportedly in talks with the league to attend the game. we are really not sure what's going to happen there because formally if somebody who is suspended shows up, they are fined. as far as tickets tonight for this game, they are still available. i checked. the lowest was $560. tip-off starts at 6 p.m. we know that traffic of course might be congested because beside the warriors game, there is an a's game playing right next door, and that's at 7 p.m. but a lot of fun tonight. a lot of excitement building up
for tonight's game to see if they can win it all. back to you. >> thank you. a lot of people took to social media after hearing draymond green was suspended. warriors center tweeted, flagrant versus tech cal foul? and the scratching the chin emoji. marreese speights with a baby bottle emoji. perhaps suggesting james is a bit of a cry baby. warriors star steph curry's wife aiesha posted. high road. invisible bridge used to step over said person when open floor is available left to right. we can talk hockey as well. the sharks had quite a ride. it ended last night at the sap center. the pittsburgh penguins beat the sharks 3-1. they win the stanley cup. the penguins scored first in game 6 on a power play in the first period. the sharks tied if in the second when couture scored.
a minute lace kris letang scored. that gave the penguins the lead back. the sharks pulled martin jones from goal at the end of the game to have an extra man. pittsburgh added an empty netter. the final score 3-1. they celebrated the penguins' fourth stanley cup. >> the end is like hitting a wall. you have been going since september we showed up here. 106 games. it's a special group. only one team with win. >> just disappointed. it's been a long journey. just to see it end is tough. >> definitely helps knowing that you have done it once before and that you can find a special group and put in the right work and have the right guys. it can happen again. there is teams that have done it. >> the penguins captain sidney
cosby con the conn smythe trophy. he had six goals and 13 assists in the playoffs. >> what a season. 8:19. let's run over to sal castaneda. it's a bad monday on the roads. >> it's crowded out there. right now traffic is going to be slow everywhere you look as we start off with the commutes here on 880 northbound to the coliseum. backed up out of san leandro all the way to downtown oakland. we are also looking at a commute where traffic is going to be busy at the toll plaza of the bay bridge. you will see the traffic continues to be slow for a 25 to 30-minute delay. maybe more than that across the bridge. san francisco, once you get there, we will see some slow traffic on 101 heading south out of the city. i would still stay on 101. 2830 is a mess out of daly city heading south. 101 a little bit farther south, we had a crash there at 92. that's gone to the side. but the traffic is backed up out of burlingame. now at 8:19 let's go to steve in the weather center. sal, did you watch the sharks last night?
>> i did. >> they should be proud. they played very well. >> they did. the first time in the final. you know, let's hope that they get there again and again and again. >> there you go. thanks. you can build on that. we get to what looks to -- i want to give you a heads up. i mean, we could get rain here thursday morning. i am not kidding. it's going to be extremely cool for this time of year. the local clouds are in place. the breeze is in place. our wind. we are setting the stage for well below normal this entire week. i mean out to the sacramento valley. steve says, steve, why does the weather always go from west to east? i am obviously not a meteorologist. a very good question. in the northern hemisphere for us has to d with the earth's rotation and the coriolis effect. that's a quick answer.
mainly, the earth's rotation and coriolis effect. sound effect from the submarine. [ applause ] . >> we are going to dive big time here. highs upper 60s on wednesday and thursday. you folks out there in brentwood and antioch and up to st. helena, calistoga, clear lake, gilroy, morgan hill, a cool pattern. fog is there big time. you can get a little clearing on the north coast. this system is so strong, and i think it's going to chew up the fog probably in a day or day and a half. there will be nothing left to support it. 30, gusts to 36 at travis. 50s, low 60s brentwood. 65. san jose 61. upper 50s, 60s. cool readings this morning. we are rebounding off those. low clouds peel back. look at this racing in. it's going to take a while to dig. it's moving into seattle and portland. we will get in on it a little later. there will be a piece of energy
rotating around that early thursday, which would give us the best opportunity for any rain. you know, usually i don't show this graphic this time of year because we don't have any rain. but there is going to be drizzle. i think from santa rosa north on thursday looks to be the best opportunity. today we have a lot of low clouds. breezy. cool. it will be sunny for some. i think you will notice that braze. maybe a little morning drizzle. if not today, it will be tomorrow. temperature are on their way down with 60s, 70s, and 80s. i don't think we will see any 80s the rest of the week as this system, for this time of year, really impressive coming in. so temperatures sliding down all the way into, if not wednesday, thursday. a little chill in the morning air. i want to emphasize that. you will notice it. we will see warmer temps by the weekend. >> all right. thank you. time is 8:22. a new sales tax increase in the senior. in 23 minutes, i am going to talk with san jose mayor sam liccardo about how much more residents are going to have to pay and what that money will be

welcome back to mornings. it is 8:30. the investigation into that deadly mass shooting at an orlando nightclub continues. >> caroline shively live in orlando with the latest developments. president obama just spoke on the issue saying there is no clear evidence the orlando shooter was directed or part of a larger plot. what are you learning from police at the scene? >> reporter: police are looking locally and through the country. it is a criminal investigation according to the fbi special agent in charge who is on the ground here. he wants to know did anyone in the area or elsewhere know about what he was planning? did mateen tell anyone about his planned attack? there is also that third gun. he had two guns on him.
there is a third one. the atf said they haven't tracked down where it came from. where did that come through? that criminal investigation is going through right now. no results from it yet. and the fbi did stress to us there is no credible threat to the public, but they want to know what went on. that's one of the things we are going to see going forward. the other track is very interesting. federal officials are also going to be scrubbing omar mateen's electronics. what they find in there will be so incredibly important over the next 72 hours. did he talk to friends? did he talk to someone on facebook? and did he have any direct communication with isis members overseas. now, from what president obama is saying, it appears they are trying to rule that out, that he was indeed directed by isis. it looks more as of now that he was inspired by isis. the end result, of course, is still 49 people dead. another near 50 injured. >> caroline, this sounds similar to what we were
learning in the hours and days immediately after the san bernardino attacks here in california. >> reporter: yes. it's very similar to that. and one of the interesting ways is to analyze how the orlando police went after it, as in san bernardino. everything we have learned sin columbine, if you have sunday you think is going to commit suicide or wants you to kill them, you go in hard and fast. they had a three hour lag here where mateen called 911. he was calm. he was cool. he had hostages. four or five people barricaded in that bathroom. another 15 in a nearby bathroom. they held steady for three hours until he said something. the police chief, i asked him straight up. he wouldn't tell me what the words were that triggered them that they knew more people would die and they busted through with the explosives and armored vehicle. mateen jumped through the hole. he was ready to take them on. that's when police shot him to death. >> before you go, talk briefly
about they were removed the bodies, all of the bodies out of the nightclub now? >> reporter: they did by 11 p.m. last night. that horrible scene. one of the people inside described what it was like, because people who thought their loved ones may be in there were texting, were calling. so you had bodies piled up in the nightclub with their cell phones beeping and buzzing and glowing in their pockets. the folks who had to go in there, the crime scene investigators and clean-up crews, now how horrible it would end for the friend and families, mothers and fathers. they were, indeed, did an amazingly fast job of cleaning those bodies out of there. still the notification going on through central florida today. >> certainly, a lot of police and investigators at the scene. are there any people coming there either to mourn or to try to learn information, or is the public being kept away from
where you are? >> reporter: the public is being kept away from the nightclub scene. this entire street behind me, you can see the sheriff and the fdle, they have set up mobile command units behind me. the road are closed. the businesses are certainly closed. local folks can t to where we are, but mainly they have been showing up to some of the vigil sites. some of the places where people have set up little memorials to remember those who are now gone. >> thank you. of course, we will continue our coverage of the orlando shootings in a few minutes. >> yeah. we are talking about many other things. let's check your weather right now. steve paulson is right over year. >> cool, cool. starts today with a big fog bank. you can feel a little bit of a coolness there because the breeze is onshore and it's going to continue to give us a rather breezy to windy conditions and temperatures are on their way even with sunshine
today. it will not be as warm as yesterday for many. we had a cool-down yesterday towards san jose and towards the north bay. today it will be for everybody. much cooler tuesday, wednesday, thursday. there is a little bit of clearing up on the northern sonoma coast. mendocino coast on that fog bank. so much that might get chewed up later as this strong system develops to the north of us. gusts to 36 at travis. roaring right along. even out to livermore west at 13. sfo. hayward. southeast mountain view and san jose. a lot of 50s in between. it's going to be a cooler pattern here for the entire week as this system digs in and then slowly digs along the west coast, which will position itself to us late thursday. low clouds, windy for some. 70s and 80s inland. morning drizzle. looks like temperatures though near coverage to going below for many the next couple of days. sal, what do you have for us? >> a lot of slow traffic,
steve. as a matter of fact, that is going to be slow in a lot of the spots you expect it to be. i was hoping for a monday that was better, but it seems like the weather is february. it's like a february commute. everyone is on the road. people go somewhere and traffic it backed up to the maze. here it is past 8:30, and lots of times we start seeing improvement in the summer. not today. we have had a couple of incidents. nothing major. looking at the commute here on the san mateo bridge or some of the other bridges, it's still very busy over the peninsula. a crash southbound 101 near 92. 92 is also very slow. we can go to the maps. i will show you. look at 92. it is slow from 280 getting over here. so almost everywhere you look there is a slowdown getting into the valley on 237 and 101 slow as well. 8:36. let's go back to the desk. >> thank you.
