is an unconscious person on 580 no 98. looks like it could be a medical emergency. whatever it is it's slowing traffic on 580 as a lot of the emergency vehicles are there. so is chp. now, we have been looking at some other things. steve mentioned walnut creek. southbound 680 is a mess on 680 southbound from 242 all the way down to walnut creek. highway 37 slow traffic because of a truck accident right near highway 121 westbound from vallejo is going to be slow. let's move along and take a look at the pictures that we have. bay bridge is backed up. there was an accident at one of the toll lanes, although it's not really adding so much to the delay. and in san jose traffic is okay. let's look at the san mateo bridge. westbound 92 is busy. san jose has a new crash northbound 280 near saratoga exit. 7:02. back to the desk. and to the latest in a deadly shooting at a mcdonald's parking lot in san francisco. the shooting happened right
across the street from a police station. the killer has not been caught. ktvu's alex savidge live there now. police are saying they may know the motive for this killing, alex? >> reporter: well, good morning. they think this may be gang related. they are not saying why they have that indication. i did hear back a short time ago for the spokesman from the san francisco police department. all he told me was there is no updated this morning on this investigation. detectives, we understand, pouring over surveillance video from this mcdonald's, from other nearby stores, trying to figure out who the shooter was. this person walked up to a car that was coming out of the drive through here and opened fire on that car. look at where this happened. this is just across the street from the northern police station here. officers inside heard the gunfire. yesterday at about 3 afternoon, this is mere fillmore and turk. the shooter walked up to that car and fired on the man who was sitting in the passenger's seat. he collapsed on the sidewalk
and died later at the hospital. the shooter ran over to a waiting car and sped off. investigators say they will be looking at whether this killing was gang related. >> this is unfortunate circumstance any time someone gets the shot like this. whether or not he was targeted, you know, it is an on going investigation. that will be determined later. >> and that getaway car that was used in this killing is described as a grey sedan. it may be a honda, possibly a toyota, and it had black paper plates on it with gold lettering. according to witnesses, that car that sped off with the shooter inside, it had a total of four men inside the car. one of them apparently was wearing a ski mask. of course people who live in the western addition neighborhood are stunned by this violence, which obviously played out in the middle of the day on a busy street across from a police station. we don't have any official word
on who the victim was in yesterday's shooting. our crew out here last night says there were a number of people at this scene who believe they know the victim and they say that he is a 26-year-old young man who grew up right here in this neighborhood. >> alex, thank you. to the east bay where today we expect more details from hayward police about the discovery of the body of a missing san jose woman. stacey aguilar's body was found saturday afternoon. she was last seen leaving a party in hayward with her boyfriend sunday, february 14. her family reported her missing the next day. police haven't yet said where her body was found, but they do say they believe her death is a homicide. there will be an autopsy to determine how she died and police are expected to say more at a news conference this afternoon. time is now 7:05. new this morning from fremont a man is in the hospital after crashing his car into a tree and police say he may have been racing. the crash scene has been cleared in sequoia. just look at this damage.
this happened 10:30 last night. a witness told police that a lincoln town car and another car accelerated quickly after the traffic light turned green. the driver of the town car lost control and slammed into that tree and the car split in half. >> we estimated the speed at 70 plus based on skids, and then when you look at the amount of impact damage, he hit the tree, it basically sheered the motor from the front of the vehicle. the motor actually, after the impact, continued past where the car had actually stopped. >> incredible pictures. the driver has two broken legs, a broken arm and clavicle. police say the second car stopped at the scene. neither driver has admitted to racing. 7:06. can donald trump make it three in a row? republicans are gearing up for tomorrow's caucuses in nevada. doug luzader reports from washington. >> reporter: this is a question of momentum for the frontrunners
and for donald trump this is all about the power play even when there is no actual power. >> because to put them in their jails -- >> when the lights out in georgia on donald trump last night, he used it to fire up the crowd even when they came back on. >> no! get those lights off! >> reporter: that may be the first time trump shied away from the spotlight. his political instincts seem to be on point, scoring a win in south carolina on saturday in a contest that saw marco rubio come in a surprising second and jeb bush drop out. trump is well positioned to win tomorrow's nevada caucuses and from there heading into super tuesday he may be tough to stop. >> donald trump is in a commanding position now. could change, but a very strong one. and hillary clinton you think is headed to the nomination, but her only constituency looking at the exit polls is african-americans where she has strong majorities. >> reporter: but that will be crucial for clinton heading
into saturday's democratic primary in south carolina. after her big win in nevada over the weekend, she will be in california today tapping into the well healed donors who have largely fueled her campaign. sanders stayed on the trail in south carolina where he is making an electability argument. >> if you look at national polls and want a candidate who is going to defeat donald trump, you're looking at that candidate. >> [cheers and applause]. >> reporter: and at this point sanders would be happy to have a strong second place showing in south carolina. in washington, doug luzader, fox news. one day after her win in nevada democratic presidential hopeful hillary clinton brought her campaign to the bay area. she made stops in atherton, menlo park and piedmont. her fundraising trip through california continues today with a visit to southern california. meanwhile, across the bay in san francisco bernie sanders supporters hosted a tongue in cheek $27 fundraiser
highlighting the importance of small contributions. they say they are looking forward to the south carolina primary on saturday. time is now 7:08. a bay area lawmaker state senator steve glazer wants to make it easier for cal state students to take the classes they need to graduate. csu says 19% of cal state freshmen graduate in four years. there has been an effort to improve that number. the "l.a. times" reports senator glazer is expected to introduce a bill today that would give students who are on track to graduate priority in getting classes and they would also get extra counseling. 7:09. we are learning more about an uber driveway accused of killing six people during a shooting rampage in michigan. what authorities are saying about a possible motive. we are also live near the bay bridge where there is concern this morning that pieces of concrete could fall from one of the tunnels. what caltrans is doing to stop
it from happening. good morning. we are looking at a commute where traffic is going to be busy if you are driving on many of these commutes, including 280 in the south bay. a little bit of fog, but overall mostly clear. it's a full moon this morning, by the way. it will be also full sunshine and warmer temps. we will have that and more coming up.
welcome back to "mornings on 2". time now 7:12. a piece of falling concrete fell from a bay area bridge tunnel. this may be more widespread than first thought. ktvu fox 2's brian flores joining us live. what caused that concrete to fall in the first place? >> reporter: well, according to caltrans, david, the combination of rain, leaks and corrosion. as we take a look behind me, take a look at the eastbound yerba buena tunnel, a piece of
concrete fell onto a woman's car a month ago. caltrans says it could possibly happen again but they are working on stopping it. according to "the chronicle," there are 12 spots that they found where concrete could potentially fall. the paper says this was discovered after doing some follow-up tests from an incident on january 30th where a woman was driving, again in the eastbound tunnel, and approximately two feet piece of concrete fell close to smashing her car. it caused about $3,000 worth of damage. the paper says the problem may lie in possible leaks in more than 200 drain openings. the water is apparently seeping through the upper deck and may have affected the steel rebar on the lower deck. now, at this point caltrans tells "the chronicle" they plan on bringing specialized x-ray equipment to find significant cracks. they say right now there is no immediate danger to the commuters. we will stay on top of this
story this morning. back to you. >> all right. brian flores. thank you. starting today drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians on san francisco's mission street will see some big changes that are aimed at improving both traffic and safety. transit crews are transforming a two and a half mile stretch of mission street between 11th and randall. the biggest difference will be for drivers heading southbound on mission. one of two lanes is being turned into a bus-only lane. crews will begin painting those lanes red today. also right and left turn restrictions in both directions. 7:14. sal, are you working your magic at the toll plaza? >> i am trying. sometimes it doesn't work. you know what? right now it's backed up as it normally would be. so we don't have to worry about anything unusual. that's what drivers hate. unusual things. it's kind of a normal commute here at the bay bridge toll plaza, which is nice. you can see traffic is backed up. it's a 15 to 20-minute delay. i want to mention one of the
worse commutes right now is highway 37. westbound 37 we had an earlier truck crash. that has been gone. traffic very slow out of vallejo. no major problems in san francisco any more, but 280 is still recovering from a crash near alameda. that crash is being cleared. all right. let's go to 280 picture in san jose. northbound 280 looks good. a crash northbound 280 near saratoga on the right shoulder. so far not affecting downtown traffic. let's go to steve in the weather center. >> thank you, sir. well, for what it's worth, i saw a one-year forecast for next january and it looks colder. for what it's worth. >> oh, okay. >> yes. which would mean we would be in a la nina pattern. we'll see. we'll see. one year out. hi, chelsea. the nine producer is waving at me. >> we're all in trouble. >> we are not. all right. nicole, who is in san lorenzo,
warm, dry weather equals bored weatherman. sorry steve! i am frustrated. we need the rain. does not look like a rainy week. looks like a dry week. in fact, temperatures will be en the warm side for a while. there will be a weak system. maybe on friday, saturday. but i don't think it's going to do much. looking weak are and weaker here. tomorrow warmer. friday, saturday cooler with some clouds coming in. but the trend is to take these temps up. yesterday a lot of 60s. today upper 60s and low 70s, including santa rosa at 72. patchy low clouds aren't. i don't think it has a chance here. san jose mostly cloudy skies for a while. you see everything riding up over the ridge of high pressure. 38 napa. mendocino county cold 30s. 32 lake county. temperatures bump up pretty quick here except for the higher clouds streaming in. look to be favoring the peninsula and south bay. near 70 for highs. the breeze does pick up in the hills but it's a dry pattern
and that's an offshore breeze. so 60s and 70s for your temps. low 70s, upper 60s. everyone's pretty close here. not much of a howling breeze yet. tonight it will show itself. as it does temperatures warm up. back to mostly sunny and warmer through midweek and probably beyond. >> okay. thank you. 7:17. an increased risk of cancer linked with certain types of chlorine in your home. the warning issued by the cdc this morning. guess what? the warriors get a new center. the new face just signed to the team, and who he is replacing for now.
7:20. there is an online petition protesting san francisco's police officer return to the force. he tweeted comments critical of black lives matter demonstrations. an independent arbitrator reinstated white earlier this month. organizers of the petition hope it will encourage the city to challenge that order. happening today, san francisco police chief greg suhr is set to answer questions about racial bias and misconduct in his department. he will testify in front of a blue ribbon panel. the panel was established last year in response to a series of scandals, including the alleged exchange of racist text messages by a group of police officers. today's meeting is set for 2:30 at the public library.

comments. let's take a look at what we have now. traffic is moving along relatively well in some areas, but not here. if you're a contra costa driver, we had an earlier crash. a line from the benicia bridge to alamo. a couple earlier crashes. everyone's on the road. if this is your commute or you know someone who drives on 2242 or 680 or highway 4, they might be in a bad mood today at the office. kind of leave them alone when you see them coming to the office, all right? by the copy machine, don't say anything. westbound bay bridge is backed up for normal delay about a 15 to 20-minute delay. that is more like a normal commute. in san jose, northbound 280 is beginning to get slow. we had some slow traffic approaching highway 17.
7:31. back to the desk. >> sal, thank you. people in western michigan and around the country really shocked and stunned by the latest mass shooting. six people were shot and killed by a man who was driving for uber. ktvu foxx's allie rasmus in the newsroom. the motive is still a mystery? >> reporter: right, officials have not release an official motive. most of the people who knew 45-year-old jason dalton did not see this coming. some uber passengers say they noticed red flags the night of the shooting. he is a married father of two. he was working as on a uber driver before and during the attacks. he was picking up passengers on saturday night while this was unfolding. he will face murder and attempted murder charges today for shooting eight people in an apparent rampage. a prosecutor in the case says dalton's actions were intentional, deliberate, and quote coldly done. investigators believe he chose
his victims at random. the first shooting happened around six saturday evening in kalamazoo. he shot a mother with three kids outside her apartment. she is expected to survive. another 14-year-old victim of the shooting is expected to survive. now, before the next shooting four hours later uber passengers say dalton picked them up in between killings. some passengers noticed he was acting strangely. >> maybe a mile from my house. he got a telephone call. after that telephone call he started driving really erratically. he was running stop signs. >> now, that passenger went on to explain that dalton continued to drive erratically and when he came to a brief stop after a harrowing ride the passenger jumped out of the car. uber's chief security officer issued a statement explaining the company is doing everything they can to help with the criminal investigation. uber also confirmed kaltschmidt dalton had passed a company background check. now, investigators say the father of two had no known
history of mental illness and no prior criminal record. neighbors describe him as quiet and polite. the only unusual thing he used to do is occasionally shoot a gun outside the back door of his home. >> allie, thank you. 7:34. new westbound, press lanes on 580 in livermore are open this morning. on friday here on "mornings on 2" we showed you the eastbound express lanes open. ktvu fox 2's janine de la vega live from livermore. is this having an impact on traffic is far this morning, janine? >> reporter: gasia, traffic is actually looking great right now on 580. i was sort of surprised. i mean, not many cars right now. so it's really hard tell. i mean, on friday we were seeing a lot of brake lights and people stopping and a lot more congestion. we have a great view right now looking over what's new here. it's the westbound lane. that's the new express lane. not too many cars on it, but as you can see there are several
cars zipping by using it. there is a total of three new lanes. as i mentioned, we were out here on friday and that's when the two express lanes on eastbound a 580 opened and all these lanes are free for carpoolers, buses, motorcycles, and those with clean air vehicles. solo drivers will have to pay a toll and the cost really investigator autos just depending on how -- varies depending how heavy the traffic is. these rains through 14 miles. they are supposed to ease congestion for the drivers commuting from stockton and tracy area. what you need to remember if you plan on using the lanes you need get a fast track flex device so you are not charged. solo drivers can use the old fast track. back out here live, you're looking at both those two new eastbound lanes that opened up on friday, and now the westbound lanes, which is the morning commute direction. and as you can see right now
this morning commute is not bad at all. we're looking at the 580 westbound just approaching the north livermore avenue exit. so i'm not sure what it is beyond that. we also checked the prices as we were driving in and it really varies for the toll. we saw everything from like 50 cents to $1.50. it depends how far you travel while using that lane. that's what the fast track ends up charging you if you are a solo drive. gasia. >> thank you. former state senator leland yee is set to be sentenced this week. the 67-year-old pleaded guilty to racketeering, money laundering and bribery charges last he year after being caught up in an undercover fbi sting. prosecutors are seeking an eight year prison sentence. his attorneys are arguing for short are punishment and asking the judge to take into account that yee's life is ill with lymphoma. time is 7:36. the eight remaining members of the u.s. supreme court are
going back to work today for the first time since their colleague, justist antonin scalia died. with justice scalia laid to rest the focus shifts to the contentious battle about who is going to replace him. president obama is whittling down a number of possible nominees. on friday the president was seen at the white house carrying a thick binder with the resumes of people who the white house says may be worthy of consideration. >> the president will consult a wide variety of individuals with a wide variety of perspective as he contemplates his nominee to fill the vacancy on the supreme court. >> now, president obama promises he will not name nate someone who is so qualified that even his political opponents will support. the president has not said when he will reveal his nomination. meantime, some california wineries say a decision made by justice scalia is something they will never forget because of the tremendous impact it had on
their business. justice scalia played a key role in allowing wineries to sell to customers outside of california. one of the plaintiffs in that case back in 2004 is a winery owner in lodi. >> it's really different when you're in court because you broke a law versus if you're in court because you're trying to change the law. >> justice scalia swerved as a swang vote. it now allows california wineries to pack and ship wine to others states. happening today the city of san francisco is set to consider raising the age to buy tobacco products from 18 to 21. san francisco would join the city of berkeley and unincorporated santa clara county in raising the age to buy cigarettes. a committee of the board of supervisors will look at the orderrens today. they have received a letter from a tobacco lobbying group that says the ordinance contradicts

security at hand. >> okay. >> and it continues. >> thank you, pam. 7:49. when apollo 10 bend around the far side of the moon in 1969 the astronauts heard what they called outer space music. >> hear that? woo! >> the crew was cut off from all communication from earth while hearing the noises. recordings and transcripts of the conversations while on the dark side of the moon had been classified for years. they were recently rediscovered and they are the focus of an episode of the science channel series nasa's unexplained files. scientists still have no solid explanation for what the crew heard. >> i have to see this. i thought there was nothing, sound or anything else in space. okay. time is 7:50. one of the most popular breakfast pastries is a hot topic at one of the world's biggest retailers. why a grocery store in the u.k. will no longer sell those curved croissants. look at the meeting of a

thought. brian flores with more. >> reporter: good morning to you guys. and the issue involves years and years of rain and it's effected on our aging infrastructure from the bay area. we are live on yerba buena island. this is traffic going into oakland this morning. while we have the new eastern span of the bridge, the tunnels may need work. on january 30th a two foot piece of concrete from the lower tunnels of the bay bridge fell onto the roadway. it narrowly missed a driver who had no time to maneuver around it. she ran over the piece. it caused three grand in damage. after further inspection of the tunnels, after this incident, caltrans crews found at least 12 other spots where concrete could potentially fall. the chronicle reports there are possible leaks in more than 200 drain openings in the upper deck. that water is seeping through and corroding some of the corrugated rebar on the lower deck. at this point though caltrans
says there was no immediate concern for motorists. part of the plan includes possibly bringing in x-ray equipment to check if there are any cracks and also replacing some of the mason pads with rubber ones. it could require a lane closure as well. we have tried calling caltrans to get reaction to the story. we have not heard back this morning. we will hopefully hear from them and bring you another report on ktvu "the 9". back to you. >> yeah. i would like to hear if they have seen similar problems with new bridges or new structures here in the bay area or if this is something that is really out of the ordinary. looks like brian is having hard time. we will let you go. thank you. 8:04. new this morning from fremont a man is hospitalized after crashing his car into a tree. police say he may have been racing. the crash scene has been cleared. this is the damage that was
done. it happened 10:30 last night. one witness told police a lincoln town car and another car accelerated quickly after the traffic light turned green. the driver of the town car lost control and slammed into the tree and the car split in half. >> we estimate the speed at 70 plus, based on skids. when you look at the amount of impact damage, he hit a tree. it basically sheered the motor from the front of the vehicle. the motor actually, after the impact, continued past where the car had actually stopped. >> the driver has two broken legs, a broken arm, and a broken clavicle. police say the second car did stop at the scene. neither driver has admitted to racing. our time is 8:05. san francisco police searching for the gunman who shot and killed a man in a mcdonald's parking lot in broad daylight. >> investigators say they are surprised it happened where it did because that's right across the street from a police station. ktvu's alex savidge live in san francisco. police at this point say they
have some idea what may have been the motive, alex? >> reporter: right. good morning to both of you. they believe this may have been a gang-related killing that played out here, of course, in broad daylight in the middle of a busy street on fillmore and right in the drive-thru of this mcdonald's just behind us here. that's where the shooting happened. i heard just a short time ago back from san francisco police, a spokesman told me no updates so far this morning on the investigation. so the search continues for the person who opened fire on a car as it was pulling out of this drive-thru restaurant. this is just across the street from the francisco police department's northern station. this happened just about three in the afternoon yesterday. this is right near the intersection of fillmore and turk. the shooter apparently walked right up to that car as it was leaving the drive-thru area and the person opened fire on the man sitting the passenger's seat. he was hit several times. he collapsed nearby on the sidewalk and died later on at
the hospital. the shooter, meantime, ran around the corner and then hopped into a waiting car, which sped off. detectives now are going over surveillance footage from this area hoping to be able to identify the shooter. >> reviewing all the video footage of not only the shooting scene, but the escape path that the suspect took. >> reporter: and that getaway car police are searching for is described as a grey sedan, possibly a honda or toyota. it had black paper plates on it with gold lettering. according to witnesses, there were a total of four men inside of that car. one apparently wearing a ski mask. of course, as you can well imagine, people who live nearby were stunned. so again the search is continuing for the shooter here. investigators working on leads. we are not getting any official
word about the identity of the victim, the man who was shot and killed yesterday. but our crew who was here last night said that many people believe they know who this man is and they say he is 26 years old and group up here in this neighborhood. >> meanwhile, it's business as usual behind you at the mcdonald's? >> reporter: the drive-thru, it is open this morning for business. it is true. life sort of going on in this area. a lot of people certainly surprised by what played out here in the middle of their neighborhood yesterday, and probably a lot of people concerned because this would appear to be targeted attack. a person walks up to the car and opens fire on one particular person in the car h you have so many innocent people around, it raises quite a bit of concern. >> it does. alex, thank you. our time is now 8:08. today we expect more details on the hayward -- from the hayward police department. the body of stacey aguilar was
found saturday afternoon. she was last seen leaving a party with her boyfriend february 14. her family reported her missing the next day. police haven't said where her body was found, but they believe her death is a homicide. there will be an autopsy to determine how she died. the police will be holding a news conference this afternoon. time is 8:09. we are learning more details about a michigan man who is also an uber driver arrested after a killing a.m. what police are now saying about a possible motive. another republican presidential candidate is out while the race among the democrats keeps the heating up. our election coverage is after the break. good morning. we are looking at a commute here and traffic is still very slow. in fact, it's become a little slower here on 237 heading into the valley. it's like a quiet week. we have some fog around. a little bit here and there, hither and yon. we will show you warmer temps on the way.
