6:01 am
about the heat before really builds in and a couple of days souter tower cam above the clouds this morning. we do have ample low cloud cover that is streamed into the bay during our overnight hours. we can be thankful for that because it's one of the reasons that today is it going to be such an excessively hot one that cool marine layer having pushed in resulting in low visibility at times. but that sparing us the heat that we are going to be seeing later on this weekend that wind that pushes in from the coast, it's going to relax and in the process. temperatures inland are about to be climbing, especially as i mentioned on into sunday and memorial day. on monday. 40's and 50's for most of our current temps. pittsburgh are the obvious exception standing out right at 60 degrees right now. i've got the numbers on how hot it will get come memorial day as well as how long it will stay hot for still to come first, though, on over to rain. we go. we have already had a hot spot this morning. what's the latest situation? so that's clear. that was out in seminole. and again, for the most part, traffic is really

6:06 am
management. and leonard and fact thinks his son's role as a manager may have played a part in why he was targeted. >> i think my son was a target. he was not supposed to be that he was supposed to work at home, but that cold people. the wonderful 10. and a good and a good son. he does everything for his family. we smith pitched. >> paul leaves behind 3 children and a wife. >> another one of the people killed was michael redneck and then he was a lifelong friend of san jose city council member terrell has yesterday parel as express the grief that he feels. >> i unfortunately get to know. personally. these 9 families have felt this past night. this morning. just a sense of disbelief. with a

6:08 am
>> this is the closest that i have gotten to the gunman's house here in san jose on angmar court. you can see a lot more now that we're closer, including this busted out car. there's a lot of debris from the fire that happened here just minutes after shots rang out at vta, the 57 year-old samuel cassidy lived at this home for years and he worked vta since 2000, 12, at least you can see his belongings in the driveway. it's kind of eerie to be here. this is the gunman's home and they think, you know, they're finding some of the answers as to why he would shoot up his own place of work, killing 9 of his co-workers. take a look at this video that we have of him walking out of this driveway. and in 2, one of his cars. you can see the 57 year-old with a large duffel bag. this is early in the morning and we now know there was semiautomatic handguns inside with magazines full of
6:09 am
ammunition. the guns appear to be legal. but the sheriff isn't sure if they were modified in any way. this home caught fire as i said 3 minutes after shots ring out at the vta railyard about 8 miles from here. so they're not sure how cassidy said his fire, but they believe he set his home on fire before the rampage. we have new video of him walking on the grounds of the vta facility that morning. the shots rang out at 6.34 in the morning. now we have new information as to maybe why he did. this was he planning. we know he planned this. but for how long and what we're seeing. what was thoughts, a biden administration official confirms that while being detained by us customs officers back in 2016 during a trip to the philippines cassidy had books about terrorism and notes indicating he hated his workplace this is in 2016, we're talking this massacre happened in 2021. so this is been a long time coming after interviewing witnesses from the scene.
6:10 am
sheriff's officials say cassidy targeted specific co-workers. let's hear more now. >> that he said to one of the. people there. i'm not going to shoot you and then he shot other people. so i imagine there was some kind of thought on who he wanted to shoot. i think it was deliberate well planned. i think he was moving quickly. it certainly was well planned because he walked into his business i duffel bag that firearms and ammunition. >> fbi and bomb squad have been searching. emily, the vta railyard but also cassidy's home here so far, san jose. police say they have found explosive devices at the home bomb making materials were also found in his work locker at the real yard. now they say there's no threat from the any explosive devices at the vta or here in san jose at his home. the investigation is ongoing as to why he was
6:11 am
targeting specific co-workers. but a lot of answers have come so far from here. and we have, of course, don't know half of what they found because in an investigation. sometimes thcy keep things close to them. i'm sure we'll learn a lot more in the coming days. for now live in san jose. sarah stinson, back to you. >> thanks a lot. we're already learning a lot more about them. and from his ex-wife personality. yet his demeanor. she says that it's still hard to comprehend. >> that he actually did what he did shooting and killing 9 people. but looking back, she says there were signs she had anger problems, she said and depression. >> they were married for 10 years and divorced in 2005. his ex-wife says that. >> they shared some good times like her sister's wedding where that photo was taken. but she says his mood swings just got worse and worse. and he became verbally abusive and that's when she says it was time to go. he was extremely upset. >> after, you know might go
6:12 am
back to time swing. he was crazy. so. so i'm like. you know what to do. so i i just felt i have to get that out because that. out of control. >> she says that even while they were that he was not happy working at the rail yard. and she doesn't recall him him owning any guns, though. >> well, right now on kron 4 dot com. we have a section on our website with everything we put together so far from our coverage of wednesday's mass shooting just scan that qr code. it will take you right to it. if you want to look at more of the surveillance video that's come to light here in the last 24 hours and more about what we know about the gunman now >> a more clear picture is being painted of them and also information on how you might be able to help the victims get through this. all that for you there. cropper, dot com. the cure co take you right to it. we'll be right back.
6:13 am
6:14 am
6:15 am
>> all right. well, we've got a live look at golden gate bridge behind us here looks like it's a little bit foggy kind of hard to see the tops of the towers. but otherwise it was not foggy for me. oddly enough on the way. and it full
6:16 am
as tunnel my bubble. and here i you need to have an app where people guaranteed good weather wherever you well, it is definitely a great one out there to start greater than we've been pretty much all week long up to this point as we've seen marine layer treading further and further inland. you're seeing most of our cloud cover staying right above the bay. that means bridges like the golden gate bridge actually pairing. all right. it's our hillsides like here at the berkeley hills where you're running into some of that low cloud cover actually making contact with the ground. and that's having an impact on our visibility high pressure is building back in now this results in that change of pace that we're in for this upcoming weekend. that's going to result in temperatures climbing as much as they will in the meantime, high pressure was also going to keep a little bit of fog closer to the coastline and streaming into the bay that's going to keep our coastal in bayside areas. free of the heat that by sunday and monday are inland. areas are just right in the heart of as of
6:17 am
right now, excessive heat watches are going to take effect for solano county, other bay area counties don't have any watches or advisories, in effect just yet. but we'll be keeping an eye on that because many of our inland east bay cities like out towards antioch down into the tri valley are also going to be excessively hot futurecast of wind gust shows that we will be in for a calmer day today. that means less marine air transported inland and thus today will be a touch warmer for inland spots, not a whole lot of changes near the coastline and really or coastal areas are going to be spared the brunt of this heat wave all the way into next week. those your spots to get to if you want to escape some of our hotter inland temperatures, south bay cities today. not quite in the 80's yet. so we're still well into some really comfortable afternoon highs hayward on up thro'gh oakland as well as berkeley and san leandro only in the 60's in the meantime, conquered through solano county on over into napa and sonoma counties back into the
6:18 am
80's today. hot but not near as hot as we're about to get some of the same spots tomorrow's temperatures rise just a couple of degrees sunday is when we'll start to notice things starting to really warm and by monday and tuesday, not just warm but downright hot the hottest days of the year so far with inland highs well into the triple digits for a few spots. this means as you plan out your memorial day festivities please practice. first of all, extreme fire caution and second stay hydrated. maybe cooler location like near the coast or the bay itself make sure to check on those that, you know, our heat sensitive like your neighbors or your or their family members. reyna. john, thank you for that. so earlier we had a hot spot out and signaled that has since been cleared. >> as you're heading into the city. you can see traffic is definitely moving a little under 9 minutes and they still have not turn the metering lights on as you head across towards the peninsula under 14 minutes for your drive time. they are so no major delays. and i'm tracking at this hour the richmond sandra fell commute heading out of

6:34 am
careful if they go outside on monday and tuesday. there is a possibility for heat exhaustion. heat stroke and dehydration as we talked about there is also a concern for potential wildfires high temperatures with dry conditions only amp up the negative effects of the drought. several bay area counties are still under an extreme drought or in the exceptional drought category now contra costa county firefighters were at at and other counties have already responded to multiple vegetation fires this year. fire officials are asking people to be cautious when enjoying outdoor activities memorial day on memorial day. is a time to be careful when you're mowing the grass or any other activity that could potentially spark a fire. but take a look at this. it's going to get warm on memorial day. some people might head to the beach. and that's a just a reminder that the water, while it is warm outside. the water is in the lower 50's this time of year. so be careful because there could be a potential for cold water, shock and rip
