5:02 pm
weaponry in that room, it was preplanned, extensively. and i'm pretty sure he evaluated everything that he did in his actions. >> reporter: paddock had a business degree from cal state northridge. in the '70s and '80s, he worked as a mail carrier, an irs agent, and held an auditing job in the defense department and later worked as a defense contractor. with no criminal record and no signs of financial trouble for the professional gambler, his own brother is searching for answers, too. >> he was a private guy. that's why you can't find out anything about him. that's why there's no pictures. is he such a weirdo because he didn't have a facebook page and posted 50,000 damn pictures of himself every day? who is weird?! >> reporter: meanwhile, memorials are popping up on the strip and private donations are pouring in for the victims. >> there's a lot of need and deal with what we can to raise money for the individuals. >> reporter: a "go fund me" account has raised more than $4.1 million to help families

5:04 pm
after she was shot in the back. >> just an open hall. >> reporter: getting shot in the back doesn't sound like being lucky. but if you have to get shot, savannah knows she is lucky. >> it's pretty close to my spine. it was in between the bones that come out of my lower spine. >> reporter: saran in a was with three friends at sunday night's country music concert when the gunfire erupted. >> we heard all this, like, popping noise and thought it was speakers going out. >> reporter: as she and her friends ran, she felt something hit her in the back. >> it was very hot, like, pain. i -- you know when you hit your funny bone and it stings and you just can't do anything? i just -- it stung so bad. and i just like dropped to my knees and rolled over to my back and i was like, guys, i can't go. >> reporter: a young man next to her, a friend, also went down. >> we had lost one of our friends. my friend's boyfriend actually. >> reporter: she made her way to the nearby mgm and finally
5:05 pm
found an ambulance where three other gunshot victims were already inside. >> one man was shot in the butt. i felt so bad i was laying on his lap. i said, i'm so sorry, this must be so uncomfortable for you now. his wife was in the front seat. she was hurt, shot in the foot. next to me in a gurney was a person who was being resuscitated. by the time we got to the hospital, they did not make it. um ... >> reporter: the hospital was so crowded, she was put on a gurney and had to stay in the hallway where the scope of what had happened began to sink in. >> when i was here, people were screaming and crying. that is when it hit me but not so much as to what was really going on. >> reporter: later, she learned the fate of her friend who went down next to her. she didn't survive. >> we're all trying to be as okay as we can. >> reporter: she leaves las vegas with a friend gone, a bullet in her back and insight uncommon for anyone let alone
5:06 pm
a 20-year-old. >> i see mgm right through the window now and i kind of get a little bit of anxiety. that's where i ran to. but, um, i'm not going to not come back here. i'm not going to be fearful of what this is or what happened. it's not -- you know, you just can't let the fear become you. you definitely need to be stronger than that and stand tall. >> reporter: savannah is now with her parents, her uncle, her brother. they are on the road heading back from las vegas to rohnert park where she is go to take a little time off from her studies at the university of nevada reno and try to get better before she gets back to school. >> what a brave strong young woman. ken, what about the bullet in her back? will doctors remove that or what happens? >> reporter: right now, she is not sure. the doctors here in las vegas, she says, told her that she really needs to see a specialist. they basically did all they could for her here. it's not their area of
5:07 pm
expertise that spinal area. they said she is well enough to be let go from the hospital and she is going to need to meet with somebody back in the bay area to try to determine whether or not that bullet needs to be removed or not. the doctor said that it's possible she could have that bullet in her back for the rest of her life. >> ken, i know we talked about this yesterday. but -- but just again, what is it like being in las vegas two days after this horrific massacre and all of the families who have come into las vegas for their loved ones, the 500 who were injured, the 59 who were killed, are -- are they all in a central area or are they just spread out in different hotels. >> reporter: no, they are spread out. and i learned this morning there are even more hotels. yesterday i was telling you about the bellagio that had opened up some rooms for family members of the victims to stay for free. airlines were offering free transportation here. now the list of hotels has gotten quite lengthy. there's close to a dozen
5:08 pm
different major hotels in the las vegas area and a number of airlines that are helping out. so families are able to get here and they have a place to stay. so they don't have to put money out of their own pockets. but we are hearing more and more of these incredible stories. in fact, one story in talking with savannah, she had lost her cell phone in the mayhem of all of this. she finally got it back because somebody had picked it up and apparently picked up a number of cell phones that were left behind, took them all home and as people called, he would answer and he said, look, i have their cell phone. and i can give it back right away as soon as anybody wants to come pick it up or when they're out of the hospital and they want to get their phone back. when savannah got her phone back, she had 180 messages from friends and family trying to figure out what happened to her and if she was okay. >> quite a story to tell. one quick question before we let you go, ken. what about surveillance images of the shooter? we know that hotels and resorts have incredible amounts of security and
5:09 pm
surveillance footage, have investigators -- have you heard about anybody getting close to maybe going through all of that and seeing if they are going to release some images of this mr. paddock going into and out of the hotel? >> reporter: we haven't heard about when they will be released and which ones might be released but we have heard from the sheriff here who said that there are thousands of hours of images that are detectives are going over right now. if you have ever been to any of these las vegas casinos, you know there are cameras everywhere, hundreds and hundreds. you would think that he is captured on cameras all the time he was on the property at different angles. we'll have an idea of what happened through the elevators through the hotel into his room. so all of that is there. it exists. and it's going to help investigators piece together
5:10 pm
what happened. but how much of it will be released to the public is not clear yet. >> ken wayne in las vegas tonight. ken, thank you. now to the wife of a san francisco police officer. you will recall that she was missing after the shooting in las vegas. they were desperately searching for her. unfortunately as we said at the top of the newscast, today we learned that she didn't survive. >> 50-year-old stacee etcheber was among those who didn't make it out alive. tara moriarty spoke with relatives today who are now gathered at the family home in novato to grieve. >> she is a tough as nails person. someone that just never gave up. >> reporter: but 50-year-old stacee etcheber didn't stand a chance against the gunman who unleashed hundreds of rounds of ammunition at a concert crowd in las vegas sunday night. >> we're angry, frustrated, it
5:11 pm
was despicable. >> reporter: she loved her ages 10 and 12 children fiercely. >> we love you very much, olivia and vinnie. um, your dad loves you very much. >> reporter: stacee's husband vinnie an officer of the san francisco police department for 22 years had gone to the outdoor music festival with her and two friends. >> his description of the barrage of shots was unbelievable. >> reporter: vinnie thought his wife was safe. he told her to run for it while he helped load gunshot victims into trucks headed to the hospital. when he couldn't find her later, his friends from sfpd jumped in a car monday and drove to vegas to help. >> we circled around and around and we just have the sixth sense that the last stop was the coroner's office and that's where we found her. >> reporter: stacee had never hide it out of the concert alive. >> it will be a tough road ahead for the entire family. and the poa and the sfpd will be behind them the entire way as they struggle to make sense of this. >> reporter: people had begun
5:12 pm
to place flowers at the salon where stacee was a hairstylist. >> stacee is very fiery and you know, she drives a truck. she drives the boat. you know? she pulls the horse trailer. um, she is a cowgirl, you know? and, um, you know, we're going to miss her. >> reporter: a "go fund me" page has been set up for the children one of whom attends school here at san ramon elementary school where a candlelight vigil is to be held at 7 p.m. tonight in stacee's honor. in novato, tara moriarty, ktvu fox 2 news. coming up here, how to talk to your kids about the tragedy in las vegas. advice on how to make sure they aren't overwhelmed by news of the massacre. >> 89% of republicans and democrats are in favor of restricting gun ownership for the mentally ill. >> and the debate over gun control is heating up from late night tv to twitter to capitol hill. >> plus, startling new numbers out on the security breach at yahoo. it turns out that all three

billion of yahoo's accounts were affected. what that means coming up a bit later. >> we have a red flag warning for a part of the bay area. we'll talk about that and the heat-up that's coming our way towards the end of the week.
5:14 pm
5:15 pm
89% of republicans and democrats are in favor of restricting gun ownership for the mentally ill. but not this gang. they voted against both of those things. so -- >> that was late night talk show host jimmy kimmel calling out the 56 u.s. senators who days after the pulse nightclub shooting in orlando voted against a bill to expand background checks for gun purchases. from late night tv to social media to capitol hill, the debate over gun control is
5:16 pm
once again part of the national conversation. sunday's massacre in las vegas has pushed the arguments both for and against greater gun control to a fever pitch. our south bay reporter jesse gary has our report tonight. reporter: >> who thinks that makes sense? them, i guess. >> reporter: late night comedy has become deadly serious. on jimmy kimmel live last night, there were tears and sniffles instead of laughs as the host zeroed in on an old political target of change. >> the second amendment, i guess, our forefathers wanted to us have ak47s, um, is the argument, um, i assume. now is the time for political debate. >> reporter: the almost ancient debate sparked by sunday's mass shooting on the vegas strip is over gun control and how it relates to the second amendment. santa clara university law professor [ non-english language ] >> what the second amendment protects is a core right to
5:17 pm
possess a firearm for self- defense. >> reporter: but accused gunman stephen paddock had guns that could fire hundreds of rounds a minute. some gun users say existing laws need to be toughened. >> need more gun control laws in other states, not california. california is here is very strict right now. other states like nevada and utah, they are not strict. >> the second amendment doesn't protect the ability to have guns that have significant killing power, large magazines, or semi auto capabilities. >> there was a mad man behind a firearm. >> reporter: these two say they see and feel an anti-gun surge after every mass shooting incident. friends since their teens, the pair adds personal flair to firearms from pistols to assault rifles. both say more laws or repealing or amending the second amendment is not the answer. >> if you take the wednesday, they gonna still do what they
5:18 pm
wanna do, you know? if they take a knife start stabbing people in the crowd, you gonna ban knives? >> i worry that our infringement on our rights is going to, you know, come into more play against firearm owners. >> reporter: congress has banned assault weapons before but that law lapsed several years ago. now weapons merchants and the masses who can use their products wait to see which side in this debate will bend to the will of congress. jesse gary, ktvu fox 2 news. officials say stephen paddock had two bump stocks that converts semi-automatic guns into fully automatic weapons. authorities say at least one of the rifles he had in his hotel room had a bump stock enabling it to fire hundreds of rounds per minute. the devices are legal and inexpensive with some versions advertised for under $100. senator dianne feinstein tweeted today about the bump stock. she said, quote, i'm looking at ways to proceed with
5:19 pm
legislation to ban bump fire stocks and close this ridiculous loophole for good. doing nothing in the wake of this tragedy is not an option." our coverage on the las vegas mass shooting continues on air and online. we have a special section right on the top of the website. let's talk about our weather now. um, bring in our chief meterologist bill martin -- i'm sorry, your heart goes out to all of those people. it's just so overwhelming to think about. >> absolutely. yeah. it's been a rough few days for everybody. i mean, it's -- yeah, this is a -- a -- um -- you know, it's difficult. um, but we do weather and we do news and we keep going forward. as we head outside we have a red flag warning in effect and it's not for the north and east bay hills but it's for the inland areas now more towards vallejo, davis and those areas. crammed for the north bay and east bay -- dropped for the north bay and east bay but still some gusts in the east bay and at the coast 30 miles per hour by sfo.
5:20 pm
so that's the story, that red flag warning goes away tonight up in those areas. and then we get back to still a high fire danger time. just not as high. red flag warnings are always severe. we have showers -- i'll put this in motion for you -- up around lake tahoe area and some snow flurries. this change of seasons is just upon us. here goes the last six hours. you sort of see that activity. that's really all that's going on around here. we have no fog at the coast. showers and snow in the mountains but a weak system and temperatures today, they are spot on where they were -- well, not spot on but darn near right about where they were yesterday or a degree or two warmer. but overall, just a very similar day. and that goes on again tomorrow. it's going to be warmer in the next couple of days but not hot. by the weekend, we'll see some heat, upper 80s. outside the fog isn't there. without the fog, now what happens.
5:21 pm
the coastal areas out at ocean beach and san francisco are in the 60s and 70s during the daytime hours but a beautiful pattern. here's the thing i have noticed, i bet you noticed too. a lot of folks in the morning hours, how cold it's been, off to school and work, 38 for santa rosa up there at the airport but if you go up to forestville around guerneville and rincon valley and south to the nooks and crannies up at graton, you will find 30s and frost. it's cold in the north bay valleys. we are seeing cold in livermore, too. 44. that's not a frost temperature but that's a very cool start to the day. so what's that mean? tomorrow morning kids will be wearing jacketed. next couple mornings i suspect. just make sure they bring them home because it will be warm in the afternoon as it has been. so there's the yellow. those are the 70s. greens are 60s. oranges are 80s. so there you go. you see a little bit of fog back at the coast. these are forecast highs for wednesday. a little bit warmer on thursday. but this trend, this warming trend, will continue into the weekend. fog back at the coast. that will cool the coastal
5:22 pm
sections for your wednesday but not for long. there's going to be more heating up going our way or coming our way. i will see you back here with more. coming up here, it's a death that has devastated an oakland neighborhood and stunned those who knew the victim. coming up more on the 80-year- old victim and the family member accused of beating him to death.

a man was charged today with murder for the beating death of his 80-year-old father in the upper rockridge area of oakland. aaron clark appeared in court
5:25 pm
but didn't enter a plea in the killing of his father ernest clark. authorities say the defendant also pistol-whipped his sister maya after she found their father's body in his bedroom near broadway terrace last friday night. oakland police say the man left the scene but was found at a nearby golf course with scratches on his hands. the victim was a retired real estate agent who was well liked in oakland's upper rockridge area. there is no known motive in the case. ernest clark is currently being held without bail. a rohnert park man is behind bars suspected of committing 7 armed robberies and attempted robberies in sonoma county and marin county since august. 51-year-old william hodges was taken into custody by a s.w.a.t. team in sonoma county. investigators say he admitted he was the robber and used a bb gun during the robberies. santa clara has become the first county in the state to pass bail reforms. this could pave the way for sweeping changes in the criminal justice system in
5:26 pm
california. bail is used to ensure someone charged with a crime complies with court appearance dates. but district 2 supervisor cindy chavez says for many low risk offenders bail is an additional expense they can't afford. so they must sit in jail costing the county $120 a day. the board's decision includes a community bail fund and pretrial services for low income defendants. >> we're looking at the community being able to post bail but not that just being able to manage and make sure they come back to court. courts want people to show up to finish the process and we want that to but in the meantime we don't want people to miss work and away from families. >> they are looking into nonprofit organizations. what are their qualifications. we are releasing people out from the jails on the streets that have no training, no understanding of our judicial system. >> within the last hour, the board of supervisors voted unanimously to phase in the

5:28 pm
toward removing a statue that some say glorifies genocide. a native american is sitting on the ground with a spanish vaquero and catholic missionary standing over him. the arts commission voted to remove it after hearing from some people who say it's offensive to indians. the city's historic preservation commission still needs to weigh in on the matter. our coverage of the massacre in las vegas continues next. we'll go back live to las vegas for the latest on the investigation and how police are trying to find a motive behind the massacre. >> the tragedy has taken a heavy toll on people all across the nation. and it can be especially difficult for kids. coming up, hear from experts on how to talk to children about what happened. >> and yahoo announces it was way worse than we thought. yahoo admits all three billion of its accounts, all three billion, were affected by a security breach. introducing fast food's first ever ribeye burger made with 100% ribeye beef, ring mix and provalone cheese on a potato bun.

5:32 pm
the gunman and the automatic weapons he used to carry out the horrific attack on sunday night. also the gunman's girlfriend is expected to return to the u.s. from the philippines where she could shed some light on a motive for what happened. >> fox news correspondent caroline shively is in las vegas with more on what it's like there right now and the investigation. >> reporter: a major update on the investigation coming this afternoon here in las vegas. police revealing that in his hotel suite up in the mandalay bay room, he had cameras, the shoot her mounted cameras inside his room as well as outside. federal officials are now going through that to see if there is indeed footage of when stephen paddock mowed down more than 500 people are a number of guns. reporter: dozens are dead, hundreds more wounded but officials still don't know what prompted the deadliest mass shooting in american history. survivors now coming forward describing the chaos that

5:34 pm
>> reporter: they're also looking at body camera footage. 67 officers were armed with those body cameras as they responded up in the room in mandalay bay as well as at the concert site. back to you. >> caroline, what do we know about the specific guns that he had in his hotel room and whether they had been modified? >> reporter: it appears at least one had been modified from a semi-automatic to an automatic something called a bump stock. it's something of course a semi-automatic can go as quickly as you can move your finger. an automatic you just hold your financing down and it unloads. there are kits to make semi- automatics more powerful. you don't have to stop to load as long as your magazine is full. one of those guns was modified, maybe more. he had 23 guns there. the feds are now going over that in virginia. >> yeah. and what about the ammunition, caroline? he had thousands of rounds of ammunition. it's really heavy. he is a 64-year-old man. it had to have taken quite
5:35 pm
some time to go back and forth to get all that equipment up into those rooms. are we learning any more about the days leading up to the shooting and also, too, about the gambling that he reportedly did, whether he was losing money, winning money in the days leading up to shooting? >> reporter: that's what we are learning about. there are reports out there that he was heavily gambling. at least one u.s. official tells fox he had dozens of interactions gambling transactions worth $10,000 or more over the last few weeks. we don't know was he winning or was he losing? but he was indeed making those transactions. that could be one motive. perhaps he snapped. that's what his brother has been saying. he is a normal guy who simply snapped. now, talking about all of that ammo, all those guns, he check into mandalay bay on thursday. so he had plenty of time to get those guns to get that ammo up into the room. there are no metal detectors,

5:37 pm
today about how parents can talk to their children about what happened. >> reporter: the horror in las vegas is hard for grownups. for some children, psychiatrists seeing it on tv, online, is traumatic . >> there are going to be kids who are vulnerable maybe with inhibited temperaments or who have experienced a lot of other similar trauma, community violence, potentially this could be bringing up a lot for them. >> reporter: this doctor is a child psychiatrist and medical director at ucsf oakland children's hospital oakland. she says parents and teachers should look for signs that a younger child may have trouble processing what happened. >> for younger children, they are going to think they're not safe. is this going to happen again? could this happen to me? why would someone do something like this? and not understand. >> reporter: she says a child reacts differently emotionally to news of a mass shooting or a natural disaster such as a flood or wildfire.
5:38 pm
>> that is not necessarily under any kind of human control where this is different. it is something that's been perpetrated by another person. >> reporter: and she says parents who can keep their own emotions in check in front of their children will help children feel more confident. and she says if parents suspect their child is having problems handling what they are seeing or hearing, they should definitely talk to them about it. >> asking what they know and understand about it and give them a chance to ask question. acknowledge that bad things happen. this isn't something that we are going to pretend didn't happen or sweep it under the rug but that bad things happen and we're strong enough to tolerate it and strong enough to face it. >> reporter: most children will likely emerge without emotional scars. but if signs of trouble last fors weeks, seek professional help for the child. rob. >> reporter: , ktvu fox 2 news. as we head to break right now, we want to give you a look at some of the 59 people who died sunday. all but three have now been identified. ♪[ music ]
