life threatening injuries. they have not commented on his condition and no arrests have been made in the case at this time. also no attend. investigators have the men they think pulled off a series of bank robberies in san francisco. they say willie thomas is a man who was caught on camera multiple times, robbing banks across the city. in most of the cases, a robert would hand a teller threatening note and demand money, and most of the tellers complied. now investigators think thomas has hit at least nine banks since late january. they caught up with him yesterday and booked him on several counts of burglary, robbery and attempted robbery. while an arrest has been made. this case remains open. we're told anyone with information that can help authorities should contact the san francisco police department. also need tonight. the search is on for a woman who went missing in elsa rito. her family says she was on a walk, but never returned home. earlier this week , volunteers have been putting up flyers in search of 29 year old kamani mcalpin of los angeles. she was visiting family
in el cerrito during an extended stay and regularly went on walks on monday, though she left her walk around seven a.m. but never came home. galpin was last seen on the 500 block of kerney street. her sister says mcalpin was taking medication but had been off her meds a few days before she disappeared. they're worried she may be disoriented. that you see is a brilliant, talented, amazing moving. i'm hoping that something didn't happen to her, but we're obviously very worried. and um, there's been no use of her credit cards or bank statements have been clear. no transactions . her phone has been, you know, dad since monday. the family is asking anyone to use the fine kamani hashtag on social media. another search is scheduled for saturday morning announced cerrito starting at kerney street. anyone with information is asked to contact el cerrito police. or conditions in ukraine's capital kiev. well, they look calm right now. you're
looking alive. but president biden says he is convinced russia will attack as russian president vladimir putin gets ready to oversee military drills along ukraine's border with russia this weekend. president biden has a warning for his russian counterpart. make no mistake. if russia pursues his plans, it will be responsible for catastrophic and needless or of choice. the united states and our allies are prepared to defend every inch of nato territory from any threat. to our collective security as well now, despite that warning, the biden administration still hopes for a diplomatic solution here. russia and us defense chief chiefs did speak today in the u. s. secretary of state is set to meet with his russian counterpart next week more on the administration's stance from jackie heinrich. president biden making another plea for diplomacy. you are convinced that president putin is going to invade ukraine. is that what you
just said a few months ago? yes is diplomacy of the table then. no there's always till he does. diplomacy is always a possibility. but white house officials quietly admit the prospect of avoiding invasion is slim. russian allegations of shelling and missile deployments setting the false flag pretext, officials warned about plus the white house now, says the hack on ukraine's critical military and infrastructure network was russia's doing the speed with which we made that attribution, as you know, is very unusual. and we've done so because of a need to call out the behavior quickly. the hack allowed russia to collect intelligence and preposition for a massive outage that would proceed a bloody invasion. amid warnings it would begin with an airstrike. ukraine asked the u. s as recently as yesterday to bolster its air defense capabilities, including with anti aircraft missile batteries, counter fire radar systems, electronic jamming devices and the patriot missile system. but the u. s is still working on the economic sanctions package. it's been
threatening to use officials saying today it's nearing its final form. but admitting the most punishing option removing russia from the swift international banking system is not in the initial plans. we have other severe measures we can take that our allies and partners are ready to take in lockstep with us. and they don't have the same spillover effects . but we always will monitor these options also not impacted by the package, russia's ability to produce and sell gas so far, threats the sanctions are coming . haven't stopped putin from pushing forward if you put all of the sanctions in place now, what is stopping them from invading well again, jackie, i think that's our assessment from the national security team and you know that we will continue to implement that strategy for people to die before implementing them. in that case , i think jackie that's in no way a fair statement or accusation. i guess if that's what that is, the president usually travels to wilmington's on the weekends. but this weekend he'll remain at the white house to monitor the situation in ukraine. at the
white house. jackie heinrich fox news. and there was also this. a car bomb exploded outside the main government building in eastern ukraine today, officials say shelling and shooting are common along the line that separates ukranian forces from pro moscow rebels. but targeted violence is on usual in similar areas. the explosion reportedly happening just as rebels started evacuating civilians from the conflict zone. there is growing concern tonight about the possibility russia could stage a massive attack on u. s satellites. this is no doubt. very dangerous moment right now . certainly no one wants to see a kinetic conflict between two nuclear superpowers. american experts believe moscow has the ability to inflict major damage , effectively blinding some u. s forces. coming up a little bit later in this newscast will tell you how such attacks could also have major effects on the american economy. well governor , newsom is throwing his support behind a new bill that would allow private citizens to sue
gun manufacturers. the bill goes after gunmakers and sell assault weapons in the same way that texas allows people to sue abortion providers. reporter susan here is suna has more. sdm security services. stephen moore can easily pick out the bad guy on this target. he can also pick up what he calls the overreach of a new bill to allow private citizens to sue gun manufacturers would be akin to saying i'm opposed to cars because they kill people or you get in an accident and they killed people, but it boils down to the individual who's driving the car who's handling the vehicle that's responsible for its actions. the politicians announcing the bill modeled after a texas law deputizing citizens to go after abortion providers made it clear the effort has two goals. you can't talk about rises in crime. without talking about rises in gun violence. in california. the increase that we have seen in our homicide rate. it's almost
exclusively. the results of gun violence and challenged the texas law if texas can use a law. to ban a woman's right to choose and to put her health at risk. we will use that same law to save lives. and improve the health and safety of the people in the state of california, allowing you to enforce illegal sales and manufacturing. of weapons of war and assault rifles. more doesn't see it that way. instead it will impact the law abiding citizen, but i don't see how to really stemmed the flow because there's a huge black market for it, and that will only increase the black market. before these types of things that was susan here or shoot at reporting. the bill is one of several pieces of legislation targeting the gun industry in the state. other bills would crack down on ghost guns and make it illegal to market guns to children. former police officer can potter was
sentenced in minneapolis courtroom today expressed deep remorse for taking the life of dante, right. i understand a mother's love. i am sorry i broke your heart. heart broken for all of you. the x brooklyn center cop was convicted in december of 1st and 2nd degree manslaughter in the shooting death of the 20 year old daughter claimed that she meant to grab her taser instead of handgun. dante wright's mother says that potter should pay a steeper penalty for taking her son's life in what was an unforgivable act. ever be able to forgive you for what you've stolen from us. she took her baby boy with a single gunshot through his heart. she shattered mine. the judge, saying the facts in the case justified a lesser sentence. potter will serve 16 months in prison about five years less than state guidelines and with good behavior. she will be allowed to serve the remaining eight months of her sentence. on probation.
stop you know? yes he know, lord , they're chanting we are here and we are not leaving people set up with the cost of living take to the streets of half moon bay. coming up why they worry that families are being pushed out of the community. at a barrier weather. another beautiful day today looks like one more warm day in the forecast, and then some changes headed our way. we'll have the forecast update coming up. and how about this? we will show you where you need to be ready to share sidewalk space with robots.
oh, wow, barbara corcoran! good morning. sorry, we don't need any business help now. we're gigillionaires. what? we're gigillionaires now. i don't get it we have at&t business fiber with hyper-gig speeds. but i just... so thanks, but, we're doing great. i'm so happy for you! but i'm just here for my order. oh. entre-pin-eurs? yeah, my bowling team. i like it there's money in puns. do business like a gigillionaire at&t business fiber, now with speeds up to 5-gigs. limited availability when subway opened, they changed the fast food game. but sometimes, you gotta refresh, to be fresh. welcome to the eat fresh refresh we got the - wait, that's new. because we're refreshing the refresh. what? there's the new honey mustard chicken, the subway club,
and the new baja turkey avocado with- new baja chipotle sauce? yep they're constantly refreshing with better ingredients, better footlongs, and better spokespeople. it's the eat fresh refresh at subway and they're gonna keep refreshing and re- street and pleasant in this week . you are right. not a joke, though. yeah new program just launched allowing robots to deliver food to your house. and then madonna is live and pleasant in with how this all works, amanda. yes this is not a joke. this program just launched on wednesday. it is from starship technologies. these robots were made from that san francisco based company. now you might have seen these robots before at a college. but this is only the second u. s city to have them after they saw success in modesto in the last year. priya jane brought her children
to check out the new robots. kids are enjoying so much, so i'm really appreciate what the guys started. it's really nice. she can't wait to order from one the 15 robots, doc here outside lucky california as they wait for new orders, but so many orders were coming in. they didn't sit for very long. patrick van leer. dad just had to try them as soon as he saw them here on wednesday. it's just like a novelty and just curiosity. i'd like to try out new things. he documented some of the obstacles that face to get to him. somebody has a basketball ring out there in the blocks the sidewalk completely. so the little guy had to kind of negotiate that and it was just entertaining to see it through that the robots are still learning the neighborhood right now serving only 1500 homes in about a 2 to 3 mile radius going only 4.5 miles an hour, but it's improving, preparing to serve even more people. we expect to expand that to 5000 and well beyond that, in the near future
, here's how it works. you order from the starship app. then a lucky's employee packs her bag and brings it outside. they scan a code to open the lid. lock it up, and it's on its way to your house. it uses its camera sensors and radar to know where to go and even win to cross the street. hello i'm a starship delivery robot, while pleasant in is just the latest stop for starship expanding. i can imagia world where we don't need to go stand in line. we don't need to go, you know, hunt through the aisle to find all the stuff that we need. we can tell an app. hey, here's all the stuff that i want. while many who walked by are fascinated by the technology , those who rely on foot traffic like these girl scouts aren't big fans gets a good way for girls to have communication. and if we just use robots, girls won't be able to do that. even worried about workers. these robots might someday replace.
i'm okay with robots. they help life a lot, but there's a limit, but the future. others are happy to embrace it monday. it will be a drone instead of this, so then it won't have any obstacles. i'm told that the robots main priority is safety, so they always let humans have the right away. we have seen that happened here where they just sit there as a lot of cars go by. you also heard it's speak during christmas time they will sing to you some christmas songs when they deliver now, andre, they left these ones out for us, but they are going to have to go soon and get charged overnight and we hope that they don't affect cookie sales for girl scout cookies because we love those, hopefully give us more time to get those cookies instead of grocery shopping. thank you so much a man appreciate it. are moving on to this group out of daly city residents there held a protest tonight against plans to remove a community garden. the jefferson, the union high school district, says it wants to remove the garden and build housing for faculty and staff. well, protesters say they don't
want to see the 20 year old community garden go because they say the new development will obstruct coastal ridgeline views and damage a ridgeline above the garden that protection trees and plants from coastal fog and wind. and i understand or fathom how you can take this away from these kids and put up more high rises more more housing, but it isn't even beneficial to the community. so the school district has plans to build six buildings and shopping and flipped shopping parks and more nature trails on the side, as well as a new community garden. well whether after a bit of a dip in temperature is earlier this week member monday and tuesday. temperatures have been warming up a bit over the past few days, and we have one more warm day in the forecast for tomorrow, and there's some changes headed our way as far as the highest from this afternoon , widespread sixties the worst box once again i know it's a familiar story that warm spots

community and mount view say they are being forced out interviews and ruben shows us. those residents say they have nowhere else to go. charlie who declined to give her last name should be packing up her tiny home right now, 10 a.m. this morning to is my move out time she's been told she's reached her 120 day limit at this life moves facility for the homeless and mountain view. however she has no exit plan no place to go next. but so far, evan i met my case manager. yes so i'm like in a limbo stage. this will be her third case. manager alicia spencer was on her second, though there was a few weeks gap where she had none at all. and she too, is received a move out notice. i'm extremely frustrated . i got the job. i kept the job exactly what they asked me to do. and now i've come to this and i don't know what i'm gonna do. if i end up out outside on the ground, i'm not going to be able to keep working. homeless advocates say they're worried that people who are trying to better their situation are slipping through the cracks that you have people that went weeks if not months without ever meeting a case manager this is a
systemic failure and the clients are not the ones who should pay the price by being put back out on the streets. life moves admits the pandemic has caused staff turnover, and while administrators declined to address specific cases, they say if residents meet a basic threshold, like engaging in programs and meeting with the case manager, they can extend their stay indefinitely. our only goal is to help people exit homelessness, so it's certainly not what we would consider a success when people stop engaging in services, alicia and charlie both say they've been working hard at the facility. plus they have outside jobs, one doing data entry. the other is a concierge. alicia says she's not sure what else to do but start searching for a motel. this is a pandemic within itself. the homelessness out here, so i get it but have the energy to go the extra mile. just don't think they're doing that. they're doing the bare minimum, and it's not helping most of us and
charlie just received some good news. she finally met with her new case manager who agreed to grant her a 30 day extension. as for alicia, she's still waiting . her last day is supposed to be monday. in mountain view, and ruben ktvu, fox two news. coming up at 11 someone guns down a teenager as he drives through villa hills. at a barrier whether we have one more warm day in the forecast for tomorrow that some cooling changes headed our way, while the forecast update coming up and find out why some people suspect russia is on the verge of launching a is on the verge of launching a care coalition, it's so good to see you all! alright! let's brainstorm. any ideas for new members? i'd like to nominate alaska airlines. this neck pillow i'm dating says great things! a caring airline?! wait, those exist?!

that russia could also staged a massive attack on u. s satellites. asia hasty tells us such an attack could have major effects on the american economy. it's no secret russia likes to operate in the shadows. for years, it's been jamming ukraine's gps receivers to undermine and destabilize the country. if the us responds to a possible invasion of ukraine. russia has the capability to blind american intelligence satellites and prevent us from collecting images of russian troops we may want to send to the ukrainians. the us has not yet issued any warning of a cyber threat to american satellites. but today, the biden ministrations admitted it has been preparing for a variety of cyber attacks since november. attacks that could target banks , power plants, water treatment facilities and communications when asked if these private sectors are prepared, we've shared sensitive information
we've shared most importantly, the specific steps and we've exercised the maximum of government authorities to mandate those steps as needed. cyber experts say russia has the capability. to disable or even destroy our satellites here at home that would go beyond disrupting gps for navigation to farming, automation and even oil exploration. while industry experts do not think russia would risk drawing the us into this type of conflict, they admit cyberwarfare can quickly get out of control. this is no doubt very dangerous moment right now. certainly no one wants to see a kinetic conflict between two nuclear super for powers. and folks has confirmed u. s officials met with the top bosses of jpmorgan chase, citigroup, wells fargo and other financial institutions this week to trace the resilience of their cyber defenses against attacks. this mirrors what the european central bank is also doing. reuters is reporting banks
across europe have been conducting cyber war games to test their defenses. in washington. i'm aisha hosni fox news. decades after her time leading the black panther party in oakland woman stays politically active. coming up, we sit down with elaine brown. can t v meteorologist mark tamayo will return with a look at conditions people should expect
