here's the story. anyone who has spent time in an alameda county traffic jam has asked, why not just add an extra lane? but as it turns out that hope is gone. >> you cannot build that freeway out. there's the bay on one side, there's development and businesses right up here the other side. >> reporter: one reason is because more roads and the accompanying cars and pollution isn't politically correct in the bay area anymorning. instead, officials are putting their bets on a tax package for bart, buses, ferries and bikers. one group is campaigning hard for the tax. >> kind of neighborhoods people want to live in gives people the option for getting out of cars for some of the trips. >> reporter: surface roads will get a healthy share of the money about $2.5 billion for overdue upkeep and pothole repair. >> then fixing some interchanges and things like

6:02 pm

6:04 pm
himself. >> feel bad about it. i thought that she is going to make it. but it's hard for me. >> reporter: this neighbor says the couple had trouble in the past. just recently arguing in front of the house. >> she said i'm not kidding, i don't -- i'm not kidding, you know. i'm mad right now. >> reporter: domestic violence advocates believe police could have doppler more to prevent the killing. >> this city went 44 months without a domestic violence homicide and we have had four this year. >> reporter: police arrested young for felony domestic violence in 2012 but police say ceci refused to file charges so the case was dropped. in less than 12 hours before the shooting, police responded to the triplex four times and even locked up the suspect for four hours in the drunk tank. police say the couple appeared calm and there were no signs of domestic violence before the shooting. >> could we have done more? um, you know, in this specific
6:05 pm
instance, i think the police officers did as much as they could within the confines of the law. >> i think perhaps there was some missed opportunities but i think the city will pull together and try to figure out how to best respond. >> reporter: i talked to ceci's father and brother who live in oakland. they are traumatized and declined to talk on camera. cece was 35. live in san francisco, i'm da lin, kpix 5. >> domestic violence advocates say that they plan to meet with city leaders on any potential lessons that can be learned from the case. meanwhile concord police had to deal with a house rigged with booby traps as they made a domestic violence arrest. police were looking for a man they say tried to kidnap his girlfriend last night. the man then went back to his home in pleasant hill, holed up inside. police eventually used tear gas to force him out. they then discovered the map had rigged up several explosive devices in the home. at one point he apparently fired a gun in an attempt to

6:07 pm
for the stock market today. we saw the dow plunge as much as 460 points during the session. the biggest drop we have seen in over 3 years. there are a host of reasons for the heavy selling ranging from all sorts of global economic concerns in china and in europe to the ebola scare continuing to hit airline and hotel stocks. and a weakness here in the u.s. economy. retail sales in september falling for the first time in eight months, also producer prices dropping for the first time in over a year. that lower inflation may sound good but a deflationary spike would not be good for the u.s. economy. fortunately, we saw buyers enter into the market late in the session cut into those losses significantly. dow winds up cutting into the losses by almost 300 points and lost 173 points on the day. >> netflix was one of the stocks hit hard today. julie watts says the streaming service is about to get some new competition. >> yeah. >> reporter: there were a couple of things that spooked investors today. that might be one of the reasons the stock fell.

6:09 pm
already subscribe to both streaming service because of course they offer different shows. >> netflix starting to feel the heat that the networks have felt for a while, competition. >> yeah. >> not so easy anymore. >> reporter: as more and more of the streaming services jump in, it may have a positive effect for consumers with the prices going down. >> amazon, netflix, hbo. what's that's going to do to the internet? everything is going to be bufferrering because everything is streaming. >> then we have the issue of slow internet service. >> there you go. >> all right, julie. thank you. well, the joints are trying to tap into -- giants are trying to tap into their play- off magic at at&t park. our meteorologist paul deanno is outside the ballpark. how's the weather so far? it was windy. >> reporter: oh, yesterday we were standing outside the stick it felt like because we had 40 miles per hour winds. tonight the weather is back to

6:16 pm
push is coming from natural gas which also fuels a lot of debate namely about the environmental impact of fracking. >> with renewables we are blessed that we have the technology for free fuel. but we are subject to whatever mother nature gives us. >> reporter: so the drought has delivered us yet another challenge. making up for lost wattage. as one source of green energy slowly runs dry. >> you know, we do what we can this year and then we pray and hope for good healthy winter and move to the next year. >> reporter: andria borba, kpix 5. >> a little good news here. other renewable energies are expanding. in fact, wind surpassed hydropower in california for the first time this year. the first water tunnel that travels under the san francisco bay officially opened up today delivering drinking water to customers on the peninsula and san francisco. it will now deliver water from hetch hetchy reservoir on types that are seismically safe.
