involving egregious amounts. a fentanyl that was possessed for sale and people who had numerous open cases. san francisco supervisor matt dorsey, who represents the south of market area, says he welcomes the change in policy to address the drug crisis in the city. this is a public health crisis that we have to address and public safety is a part of it, and prosecutions are part of it. i think too much and for too long we have taken a permissive approach. two. drug dealing and open air drug scenes from the tenderloin housing clinic, says he's encouraged to hear about the changes, and it's already seeing a change on some of the city's most impacted neighborhoods. obviously what she's doing is essential and we finally have a committed but i have to say that the police have to make more arrests. police have to break up the drug scenes and has been very supportive of that. and i just said just right. like five minutes ago, i saw more police walking up high street and i've seen in two years in san francisco, christien kafton ktvu box two news and the city's public
5:07 pm
defender's office did release a statement a short time ago, the public defender himself manu raju, saying in part if district attorney jenkins truly wants to address the issues facing our city, she should not be relying on outdated and politically expedient soundbites about harsher enforcement 50 years of evidence from the war on drugs have shown that these punitive practices have not prevented recidivism nor improved community health and safety. at five tonight. san leandro police say they recovered £2 of fentanyl worth $20,000 during a routine traffic stop on saturday , officers say. 23 year old marvin flores of oakland was also found in possession of marijuana, heroin and methamphetamine, all packaged for sale. they also found nearly $3000 in cash. 50 year old san jose man has been arrested in connection to a deadly car fire. this happened on sunday near pomona in bernard avenues. once firefighters put that fire out, a man was found dead inside the vehicle. police say their
5:08 pm
investigation led them to their suspect, martin cabrera. cabrera was arrested at a san jose homeless encampment the same day of the fire and booked into the county jail for homicide. the victim has not yet been identified in the santa clara county medical examiner has not said that the victim was dead prior to the car fire. turning now to the wildfire burning in siskiyou county, near the california oregon border. right now that fire is still zero contained. it's the mckinney fire, and so far it's burned more than 57,000 acres. four people have been killed and most of the community around the klamath river has been reduced to ashes and boxes. max gordon tells us warm weather is threatened to fuel the wildfire in the coming days. it was just coming down like a solid blow torture. there was nothing to stop it. california's mckinney fire devastating this small community near the oregon border flames, destroying the majority of homes in businesses in klamath river. most of the towns 200 some residents have left. it's very sad. it's very
5:09 pm
disheartening. um. some of our oldest homes. 100 year old homes are gone, sparking last friday. the mckinney fire has scorched more than 57,000 acres in northern california's klamath national forest. several 1000 people remain under evacuation orders, forecasters say warmer temperatures and less humidity could fuel this fire in the coming days. this week. firefighters gain some control over the flames as thunderstorms moved through the area has really dampened the fire behavior. it's like kind of closing the flu on a chimney. really um, so that's given us an opportunity to get in there and get a lot of good lines built. the mckinney fire is just one of several threatening homes across the us in western montana. the fast moving elmo fire has burned more than 18,000 acres in forced evacuations, scientists say we could see these destructive wildfires if the climate remains dry, unfortunately, due to the hot, dry conditions, we are seeing more frequent fires on
5:10 pm
the landscape of the mckinney fire remains under investigation and why. rekha, california max gordon fox weather all right back now to that breaking news out of san francisco was shooting on immunity bust in the sunnydale neighborhood. we know two people have been shot. one person died. one person was injured. ktvu christian captain joins us live now from the scene with the latest christian mike this clearly a developing news situation right now, if you take a look over my shoulder, you can see the money bus in question. it is an eight bayshore. we've seen a lot of activity around that bus again. we're hearing that the shooting actually happened on that bus. you can see more officers making their way on the bus right now. earlier, we saw money personnel coming and going from that vehicle as well. now, here's what we know from san francisco police at around 3 20 officers assigned to the ingleside station heard about this shooting, arrived on scene and found two victims suffering from gunshot wounds, officers. tried to assist both of those victims . one was transported to the hospital. the other apparently
5:11 pm
has non life threatening injuries. we're hearing that the one who was transported to the hospital with life threatening injuries has in fact died because of those injuries were also understanding at this point that san francisco police do not have any suspects in custody. we don't have any word on a motive at this point in time. we're also looking to try to find out who the victims may have been at this point, san francisco police not not even disclosing the genders of those involved at this point, a lot more questions than answers. we can also tell you that for people driving in the area that the intersection here ah, at vasco and santos. the last go rather and santos is closed off so any traffic in the area is being diverted around the area, while san francisco police and money work on this investigation that we were working here on scene to try to develop more information, including trying to learn more about who these victims may have been what may have led up to
5:12 pm
that shooting and whether there were any witnesses. and again. i did tell you that we saw him uni personnel on the bus. i can tell you that money busses are often equipped with video cameras, so that could be one of the reasons why those money personnel were on scene trying to access that video to learn more about what led up to the shooting. we will continue to monitor developments here and bring them to you throughout the newscast, and throughout the evening for now, we're live in san francisco christian captain ktvu. fox two news police tell you they were actively searching for a gunman in this case, or did it sound like? maybe this was an argument on the bus that turned into a shooting between two individuals. they have not said at this point, so it's unclear, so that's one of the reasons why we're not going to speculate as to whether this may have been an exchange of gunfire at this point, we simply don't know. so we're just going to go with the facts we have in hand and say that at this point in time, police say they have no suspects in custody. we're looking for more detail on that as well. mike pence out there. i've got one more for you. do you know how many people are on the bus at the time of the shooting? at
5:13 pm
this point. we don't know how many people were on the bus, and we don't know whether there are still any of those passengers who may have been witnesses still on that bus. we're trying to look inside and trying to see what we can see. we don't know whether some of those witnesses may have been removed from the scene or possibly moved. so again, mike like we've both been saying a lot of questions here. we're still trying to work to dig up those answers for you two hours into this investigation. as you said, yes, indeed. a lot of questions out there. if you do have any other answers. get back to us. we'll put you right back on air christian captain. live there in san francisco. hey, officer fired and facing criminal charges coming up at 5 30, the newly released bodycam video showing the incident under investigation. also north bay health officials say they may have found the source of the deadly legionnaire's disease plus marks here at lake shasta, where the lake is down more than 100. ft will show you the drought from the perspective of california's largest reservoir just ahead. and we're back here talking about some thunderstorms up around south lake tahoe some severe weather up there and then

5:17 pm
coming up tonight at six continue. to our series now of stories about the drought with a closer look at the dire situation at california's largest reservoir. lake shasta provides water not only to farmers in the central valley, but also several regional bay area. water systems like shasta is located 10 miles outside of reading and ktvu is mark sarah saw firsthand how the drought has taken a toll on the lakes dwindling water level. this year were 124 ft. down. which is a significant loss of a lot of storage. no matter where you look at, like shasta, you can see the dramatic bathtub ring bright orange soil, contrasting with the blue water and the green tree line. it is a visual reminder of the severity of california's drought and one not seen on a day to day basis in places like the bay area, but for those who work and live it like shasta, it serves as a daily warning the past three years. it's been really, really dreadful to see every these days having zero rainfall throughout the since don bader manages the northern california region for the u. s. bureau of reclamation
5:18 pm
, which controls the water supply flowing downstream. we spoke to him standing on top of shasta dam. why are we that below? well, we just went through the worst three years consecutive years for lack of rainfall. first three years of drought we've had up here since the stems from the belt. right now, like shasta is about 124 ft. below its maximum level and take a look at this. this is an original construction tower from when this dam was built in the 19 forties. it begins to be visible when the lake drops about 90 ft. below its maximum level. everybody starts to feel the pinch when they start realizing that they're not going to get the normal amount of water that they normally do. unlike other reservoirs that depend on snow runoff about 90% of the water flowing into lake shasta comes directly from pure rainfall. the ongoing drought means farmers in the central valley have now been cut back to just 18% of the water they would get in a normal year. less water also means less electricity is generated from the five massive generator turbans at the base of
5:19 pm
the dam, and some, like water must be held back so it can be sent down the sacramento river seen here at the sundial bridge and reading so that migrating salmon can survive. the drought is also impacting tourism, a key driver of the local economy. we're standing underneath the light. does this bring the drought home for you? absolutely real measurable to be this deep in the water that i used to believe. you know, it was so high, christopher fairmont from pittsburgh and his friends from the bay area have come out houseboating here for the past decade, they say seeing is believing for those that don't leave the bay area. they're not going to see this. at the holiday harbor marina workers must actually pushed the docks out into the receding lake in order to keep their business running. normally we're back up in our cove, but due to local low lake levels, we do move our docs out. it takes about two weeks to move them out. and what is happening here at lake shasta also directly impacts water policy in the bay area, such as
5:20 pm
watering restrictions and drought surcharges on your bill conservation. is a new way of life. santa clara valley water district board chair john varela says the district imports about 40% of its water from outside sources, one of them being like shasta. dependent on water that we import, which is less than we've received in the past because of the drought, but there is a bright side like shasta can fill up after just one good year of rainfall. it was last completely full in 2019 , and despite some adjustments, the lake is still open to all. we've rebounded from this from this before and here on the lake , even though it's down. there's tons of water out here for people to recreation and ski and vacation, the main message from the locals here conserve water if you can. if you can serve water. it helps all of california just like shasta reporting from lake shasta. mark sayer, ktvu fox two news. and as we continue to examine the
5:21 pm
drought's impact on our community and the response to the water crisis, you can go to our website for more contentious head off to ktvu .com/ drought. alright yeah. water conservation . it's not like we don't talk about it every night, huh? for less many years, and i'm telling you what california this is how it goes. i mean, we're into third year of a drought. droughts in california can last 10 years 20 years. 30 years 50 years if you go way back, um so we have to start acting differently and channel two is doing a great job. we got a lot of good stuff on the on the website pretending to drought and how to save how to save water and it consequently you save money to believe, because water is very expensive. okay lot of water coming down to mark. leave ill, uh, flash flood warning up there. 89 adam markley ville closed for a time . i'm not sure if it's open yet. i'll keep checking, but it was closed. they got over 2.5 inches of rain in a very short amount of time out of one of these cells that flash flood warning. stays in effect until this evening, as the thunderstorms are kind of stopping just short
5:22 pm
of lake tahoe. let me show you what we're looking at here. i'll come in a little closer, and then i'm gonna put some loop on this thing up back it up a little bit. so here we are. about one o'clock. nothing's going on. and then you see the afternoon heating things start to exploit. coming a little closer to mark leave ill. this is about 2 30 boom yelled at yellow flash. that's lightning right there. yellow flashes of lightning heavy down parts and marketing is gonna hammer. look at that. right over the top through four o'clock, five o'clock. wow real market but really getting hit and it's slowing down a little. and that's the sun angle deal, but it's still going off. i mean, you look down the whole spine of this year. a nevada you've got strong thunderstorms, and of course, i'll back this up again, and we'll look at the lightning strikes and you can see the same thing. not just a market bill, but all the way down towards mammoth lakes. so with that, in mind the concern for dry lightning an issue obviously a concern for the flooding and markley ville and more flooding that may not be picking up on
