5:05 pm
>>reporter: no indications of when they plan to talk to the media. there's an interim police chief. the immediate agency over seeing this but they've handed it off to the local larger, what's called the bureau of criminal apprehension but the governor wants the feds to get involved and in all likelihood, the feds will be dis-sending on this case soon. >> mike in saint paul. thank you. this shooting in minnesota comes just one day after another police shooting. this one in louisiana. federal officials say they too plan to expand the scope of the investigation into the deadly shooting of 37 year-old alton sterling. police were called on a report of a man with a gun. the justice department will examine that shooting on tuesday which was captured on graphic cell phone video for possible violations of state and local law as well as potential federal civil rights violations. sterling's family has hired two attorneys to represent them who they say will seek justice.

5:11 pm
use deadly force during their duty day. never. why these things happen, you know, i just -- i don't know. i was listening to your earlier broadcast about the gentleman that was shot in minnesota on a car stop. in my career, i have probably stopped a dozen police officers or federal agents who were armed. the reaction has always been they put their hands in plain view and tell the officer i'm armed. the situation is resolved. why that wouldn't happen in this case is beyond me. if this gentleman was armed and he told the officer he was armed, that should have resolved the issue in my opinion. i don't know. i can't answer your question detectly but i can say that, you know, from my perspective,
5:12 pm
in 50 years, i've drawn my gun twice. i've never shot it once, except at the range. >> i want to talk to you about tactics and about training. there has been a lot of focus recently on de-escalation but given what's happened in louisiana and minnesota, does there need to be more training in dealing with bias and racial bias and is there enough of that training or do you think there should be more? >> there's a tremendous amount of training in all your curriculum. i can only speak about california. i don't know what other states do. part of our curriculum has extensive coverage of issues of bias. it's reinforced annually and in training and management training. i was talking to frank briefly before we walked out here. i said, i have never felt apprehensive about stopping
5:13 pm
people of any race. never. i don't know. i don't know what they do in other states but i think, i really think we are really, really, really ahead of the game on this and trying real hard. it saddens me to see these kind of things for all size. >> i'm a dad, i have two daughters. one ovmy daughters is -- of my daughters is black and one is white. right or wrong, i can tell you that how i honestly feel, i don't worry about my white daughter, but i do worry my youngest daughter who's black is only 11. i'm starting to think about, is she gonna be okay? is she gonna be treated any differently? do i have to worry? i don't know how to answer that question. i just don't. >> well, i know you live in oakland, close to me as a matter of fact, and i think if anyone should have a sense of
5:14 pm
security, it's in oakland because there is so much emphasis on racial bias and i think the same is in san francisco. i don't know what's going on in minnesota. i can't speak to that. i just -- i think with the current training and the current climate in the bay area here, your daughter is in good hands. >> i want to go real quickly before we go, i want to get to san francisco and an incident that happened yesterday. a standoff with a man who was armed with a gun. it seems that san francisco's approach was different than the post and they took this approach of give him time and we're going to be patient. i spoke with john burse yesterday and he said they got it right yesterday. is this a shift in policy. again, every since i've been a police officer, we have been taught that contain and -- in
5:15 pm
contained and controlled situations, time is on our side. clearly, if you look at the -- at the video from san francisco, what other options were there? he's laying on the ground, face down, not moving. best thing to do is wait and see what happens. unfortunately, in the majority of police contacts, the situation is different. it's one on one, it's happening quickly. time is on our side. i mentioned earlier, no matter what the police do, somebody will complain. we were too fast or too slow. i think it's important to note that one of the big shifts in training that's happened roadway cently is how to hand -- resently is how to handle active shooters is we can't handle things slow. we have this dichotomy of training going on. when appropriate, slow down, when not, step it up. when all done, somebody will say we're too fast or too slow.
5:16 pm
>> all right. certainly glad with the way it ended in san francisco. >> chief, thank you. there are other stories making news today. >> welcome to the bay area. kevin durant, it's official. the splash brothers today became the splash family. we'll walk you through kevin durant's introduction to the team and media. and the fbi grilled for hours at the investigation of hillary clinton's use of private e-mail use. we're tracking that cool weather pattern out there. we'll talk about what that means if issue your -- for your bay area weekend which is really just 36 hours away.

in the hillary clinton the fbi director spoke and explained his team's decision to recommend not press charges against hillary clinton for her private e-mail server at secretary of state. >> ross joins us and, cross arkansas ross, tell me, it came under fire. >> that was a long hearing some four and a half hours. fbi director james a republican was pelted by question after question from the republican leadership running the hearing. democrats dismissed all of this today at the political theater and what a show it was. >> did hillary clinton lie? >> republicans on one side. >> i condemn these completely unwarranted political attacks against you. >> democrats on the other: . >> no reasonable prosecutor would bring this case. >> and fbi director james comey everywhere in between.
5:20 pm
>> i did not coordinate that with anyone. the white house, the department of justice, nobody outside the fbi family had any idea what i was about to say. >> for more than four hours the house congressional oversight committee examed what he said two days ago that more than 100 of hillary clinton's e-mails contained clads fizz logicalled information and -- classified information and was negligent but should not be prosecuted. he said the criminal intent was there. but republicans believe it was and that clinton's public contradictions have been criminal. >> we have no basis that she lied to the fbi. >> did she lie to the public? >> i'm not authorized to answer that. >> others want to see the transcript of her fbi interviews. >> we have b of the information of the information. how long is k -- investigation
5:21 pm
of the investigation of the investigation. >> it may not stop there. >> one of the things we need to do to make sure this doesn't happen again? >> mark is glad today's hearing happened believing comey's explanation fits perfectly with his conclusion not to prosecute. >> he's a person who understands the constitution of ott united states and the law and he over and over said what brought him and his team to a position of there was no criminal intent. >> but both sides seemed unswayed. >> it seems to a lot of us that the average joe, the average american, that if they had done what you layed out in your statement, that they'd be in handcuffs. >> and the public may be can you haved to more hearing and more investigations. >> in their eyes you had one job, and one job only. to prosecute hillary clinton. >> well, house republicans want
5:22 pm
to know whether clinton lied to congress about this and the state department is reopening its internal investigation. it has suspended that probe because of the fbi case in april. the outcome of that could mean the loss of security clearances for top aids involved in those e-mail ands that could happen to some close aids and could be a major problem if clinton becomes a prosecute and wants to be -- president and wants to name her in her administration. that will be a top aid losing security clearance. that that's -- >> that's never happened before. >> never. >> the impact of all this on the campaign trail? >> never seen any follow up of any of this yet. democrats looking bad in another way one could argue to really a stalemate. hillary clinton herself has spoken out about any of this. this has been two full days now. she's been on the campaign trail. >> where was she today? >> today she was actually at
5:23 pm
her home in washington. she was -- she lives off of embassy road so not guilty too for from the hearing. no peep from her about this not yet at least. >> thank you. the sunshine came out today, temperatures in some spots came up a couple degrees. slightly warmer tomorrow. got in weather system to the north that kept us cool. the fueling's been -- fog's been so thick and wind strong, rain is trying to come out. this system as it drops south on saturday. might bring drizzle and see some showers north of santa rosa perhaps. look at the fog. looks a lot like last night or yesterday. it's a typical to see it shooting across the bay this early in the evening indicating tomorrow will be a day similar to today in terms of morning and cloud cover in terms of the fog in terms of temperatures as well. slightly warm in those inland bay valleys as well. but most spots tomorrow will be
