latest mass shooting. this happened last night inside fedex facility. they have that area roped off as investigators continue to try to figure out what happened here last night and certainly still a morning where the city is still mourning. at least eight people died before police say a gunman turned the gun on himself. another six people are injured, four now in the hospital. president biden has already been briefed on that the shooing. one eyewitness this morning telling the "today" show about what he saw. >> i'm sitting on a bench and so i stand up. i see a man, a hooded figure. i was unable to see his face in detail. however, the man did have an ar in his hand, and he started shouting and then he started firing at random directions. >> scary scene out there. so far, police are not saying if
5:01 am
the gunman worked at the facility and not identified him or even talking about any possible motives. right now we want to turn to new developments on the pandemic this morning and a push to vaccinate. covid restrictions are starting to ease as a result of fewer cases and you'll see proof that this weekend in san francisco with the return of live events and more dining options. >> we have live team coverage this morning including the major announcement from pfizer on the likelihood of more shots down the road. we start today with "today in the bay's" sharon katsuda live in san francisco. good morning, sharon. >> reporter: good morning, cierra and marcus. you can go to these live event even the indoor event but you have to show proof that you're fully vaccinated or you can show proof of a recent negative covid test. "the chronicle" says new reopening guidelines include live events can operate indoors
5:02 am
where 100% capacity in the vaccinated participant area. outdoor 50% if covid vaccination or negative covid test. indoor dining can open past 11:00 p.m. but maximum six people per table. private receptions with capacity limitations, indoor conventions with social distancing and masks. it looks like all the reopenings are affecting the unemployment rate. california reports 69,000 were unemployed for the week of april 10th compared to more than 600,000 at this time last year. yesterday the california legislature passed a bill requiring some businesses such as hotels and convention centers to reho were laid off during the pandemic, so governor newsom has not said whether he will sign the bill but the vetocy similar bill last year saying it was overbroad.
5:03 am

"today in the bay's" tracie potts continues our coverage in washington this morning. tracie, pfizer's ceo revealing new information everyone may want to start planning for. >> exactly. it looks like instead of one or two, you may have to end up getting three shots before the next year to be fully protected. also, we know some people getting the vaccine are also getting the virus not completely unexpected. they never said these shots were 100% effective, even though now it looks like you may need to get a third dose. get ready for a third pfizer shot. >> there will likely be a need for a third dose somewhere between 6 and 12 months and from there an annual revaccination. >> reporter: moderna is working on a booster that may be
5:04 am
combined with the flu vaccine. the white house says even with johnson & johnson's one-dose vaccine on hold, there's plenty available. >> because we are overprepared and oversupplied, we remain confident in that. >> reporter: the nation's top health experts in a testy exchange on capitol hill about the impact of the pandemic. >> what measures have to be attained before americans get their first amendment liberties back? >> we're not talking about liberties. we're talking about a pandemic that has killed 560,000 americans. >> the only way we're going to get out of this especially with this increase in variants, sir, is to get people vaccinated. >> reporter: but the cdc reports 5,800 people, a small fraction, who got vaccinated, later got covid. >> i was in bed very sick, just sleeping all day. i had to cancel all my work phone calls. >> they're going to have mild illness, maybe moderate illness and should be able to recover at home.
5:05 am
>> reporter: that's far better protection than the flu shot, but still worrisome for a nation where most adults are still unprotected. tracie potts, nbc news. here's more on what tracie was just mentioning. those so-called breakthrough cases where fully vaccinated people become infected. california is doing its own tracking for that. we know that it's happened to a small fraction of people vaccinated in the bay area as well. in the east bay, yesterday, governor newsom said he's still waiting for statewide data which he'll make public as soon as available. >> "the washington post" says 38 states are now seeing more hospitalizations. california not believed to be among them. the current u.s. hospitalizations are above 47,000, the most in more than a month. nearly 126 million americans have received at least one vaccine dose, about 20% of the population and for a fifth night

5:07 am
ever carrying a gun but police say they did recover a weapon behind a nearby fence. san francisco demonstrators responding to recent deadly police shootings, hundreds rallied last night in the city's mission district calling for an end. the protest was held in part in support of a man recently killed in daly city named roger allen. he died after investigators say he was sitting in his truck holding a fake gun. his sister took part last night. >> that was my only brother. my mom passed away seven years ago, my sister passed away two years after my mom died so now it's just me. i never want my brother to be no hashtag. >> organizers are so angry calling for abolishing the police and even the u.s. justice system. for the black community both shootings are reopening wounds they say never seem to heal. we want to talk about these events, we talked about them during our last night episode of "race in america: the conversation." we also discuss the anger and

5:10 am
upper 60s there, and around the bay area today, of course we just have to make it through our work day and our temperatures will reach into the mid-70s in livermore this afternoon. we'll talk about the weekend coming up. vianey, what's going on now for the morning commute? >> you know, not a lot, which is good. covering traffic that's what you want to hear because that means that the traffic incident reports are quiet and that's exactly what i'm seeing. speed sensors from the north bay down to the south bay, moving along quite nicely. bridge drive times westbound 80 towards the bay bridge about seven minutes. westbound 92 toward the san mateo bridge 12 minutes and the metering lights usually turn on at 5:25/5:30. we'll see if those get turned on today. it could be a friday light commute. back to you. get ready to ride the roller coasters again. still ahead on "today in the bay," the new theme park reopenings across the state and a mad dash happening to buy tickets. plus a new way to see our

5:16 am
google earth allows you to time lapse anywhere in the world so i picked a few cold weather places like greenland, and mendenhall glacier in alaska. google used 24 million photographs dating back to 1984. the time lapse of san francisco isn't quite as dramatic, but you can see the city filling in there. google says it's processed 20 million gigabytes of pictures making the movies the biggest single movie ever made. you can zoom in on anywhere, on your own house and watch the time change over the years but i will warn you and i tried to do this at home. you need a really, really fast connection and a powerful computer to get it done. most of mine are still, like wait, what do you want to do? >> it's cool to see, you were showing the little lip leaning in like wow. that's pretty cool.
5:17 am
>> it's really neat. eight really cool. >> thanks, scott. regal theaters will show nor movies in the bay area. in dublin it began a phased reopening april 2nd and today reopen more theater around the country with "mortal kombat." are you dreaded another zoom meeting? >> zoom fatigue is real and stanford researchers say it's worse for women. 14% of women surveyed find video conference calls exhausting compared to 6% of men. researchers say one of the biggest reasons women tend to be more self-focused on how they are appearing during the conversations compared with men. >> i just think women pay more attention. men drift off every now and then. speaking of drifting off, look at this, one fan at dodgers stadium wednesday night paid the ultimate baseball price for a home run. look at that. dodgers star justin turner belted that home to left center
5:18 am
field, but the fan who ended up with it also ended up wearing those cha chos with all the cheese on his coat. he's happy, splashed down into the plate and with his snack and perhaps his clothes, both ruined but hey he got the ball but he got a new long sleeve shirt from the team and you know what? a heck of a story to tell all of his friends. >> i think it looks cool, right? i tell my friends i'm never going to wash this sweater. it's no big deal. they were kind enough to give me a sweat shirt so i'm thankful for that. >> keep it outside because it will smell sooner or later. not only that, but turn he were sent him another order of nachos, thank you. hopefully he shared it with the come sitting next to him or maybe he ate it all to himself. >> $40 of nachos at a game? i'd be upset. >> when you're sitting in that section and you catch the ball, it's like you know what? it's whatever. >> i guess. >> we can dry clean this later.
5:19 am
take me out to the ball game today, kari. i guess if there was a game we could go. >> we have the a's going on this evening and i would advise he would wash that, because that will start to smell after a while. let's get you out for a hike today in the north bay. beautiful weather, we're starting out nice and cool, and we will see a few clouds here and there for the start of the morning, temperatures in the low 40s. i probably would wait until about 11:00/12:00 when our temperature also feel more comfortable. we're headed into the upper 60s and low 70s today and a nice little light breeze picking up and a lot of us still home schooling and looking for those chances to get out and let the kids run around in the backyard. martinez we'll have a cool start to the morning and then reaching about 70 degrees at 3:00 today. so it's going to be a great day for those outdoor activities and the south bay our high temperature in gilroy will reach up to 72 degrees. we'll see low 70s in downtown
5:20 am
san jose but it could be as warm as 77 in antioch today, while oakland will reach into the mid-60s and along the coast it's still cool. we have upper 50s in half moon bay if you're planning to make it a beach day. san francisco reaching 60 in the mission district and our north bay high also reach into the low 70s. sonoma today reaching 73 degrees. so we're still all dry through this forecast, high pressure not going anywhere. and it's going to ramp up our temperatures, but we will have a cooldown as the low passes to the north by early next week. we have a lot of up and down in our temperatures. today it's still mild but look at the weekend forecast, inland valleys and some of our spots inland will reach into the mid 80s but then cooler as we head toward next tuesday. we'll be watching out for a few more clouds. vianey, how is the roads, how is that moving right now for the commute? >> pretty good. down through the south bay we've got no issues. even along 880, which usually starts to get busy around this time, but i do have an advisory
5:21 am
from the chp and that's for the benicia bridge, a high wind advisory in effect so if that's a part of your morning commute, keep that in mind. aside from that, we have no major accidents to report, so let's get a quick look at how the tri-valley drive times are doing. we've got westbound 580 from grant line road to 680, which starts to get busy around 6:00 a.m. if you get out now you'll beat any sort of traffic through there. 22 minutes southbound 680 from 580 to vargas road about ten minutes. back to you. >> all right. next on "today in the bay," "nbc bay area responds." >> we have two cases worth two grand and two happy viewers. i'm consumer investigator chris chmura.

distancing. here's a question, is all of this pandemic stuff leaving you with the desire to return to a time where things were a little simpler? >> so true. researchers say we're feeling down we tend to become more nostalgic. >> to a certain extent there's always the appetite for nostalgia that people experience things from their past, their youth, whether it's music or movies, and those are the things that they sort of latch onto that they have special memories about. >> this has you intrigued? if you want to find out more, check out lx, it's on 11-15 over the air, channel 185 on xfinity cable or any time on 5:27. next a covid curveball is being thrown at some bay area little leaguer. what they're being asked to do that they're not even eligible for right now.

"today in the bay's" bob redell is live in san ramon. i know appointments are available there. >> reporter: there are, now i couldn't find any appointments available for the diablo valley vaccination site behind me in san ramon but online i could find some in san pablo, richmond, concord and antioch. yesterday the antioch community center began opening up for shots. that site administered 150 doses yesterday and apparently there's a lot more doses to go around from that location. the antioch community center which is run by the federal, state and local agencies can now
5:33 am
accommodate 500 shots a day. some on a walk-in basis. the problem according to one antioch city councilmember, a lot of people don't know about it. >> i have people from sacramento today that came in, walnut creek, pleasanton. people are trying desperately to get in on an overloaded system where they can come here and get those shots right away. >> reporter: again it's at the antioch community center. san mateo county, however, hasn't been so lucky. county supervisor dave canea says opening up eligibility statewide is creating more problems for his county. the latest blow is the pause put on the johnson & johnson vaccine. he's begging the state for help to send more doses to the peninsula. they still have a lot of demand and not enough supply. reporting live here in san ramon, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> that demand certainly has gotten greater. bob, thank you. in a few hours, another mass vaccination effort begins in the
