>> reporter: they are telling us they have already gotten a lot of cell phone video but they would like to receive more and if there are witnesses who saw anything, they should absolutely come forward and the mayor says there is surveillance video from inside the store as well as from stores outside and that is all part of the investigation. >> i bet they are checking that right now. thank you. it was a busy night in oakland for police with officers responding to several break-ins and shootings and sideshows. they say a man is dead after a shoot out with officers happening in the lockridge area and police say it started as a pursuit of a carjacking suspect in east oakland and they say at one point the suspect used the stolen car to ram their patrol cars and that is when several officers opened fire on the car hitting the suspect who later died at the hospital. officers responded to several marijuana dispensary burglaries and in one case a security guard spotted the season action and called for backup. he said another security guard shot one of the suspects who was then taken to a hospital. >> i heard gunfire back and

proposing is out of touch and extreme and what we have before us isn't a social spending bill. it is a pathway to socialism. >> when the government does big things, it is not easy. it takes a lot of work and a lot of negotiation. it is made all the harder because our republican friends are intransigent against this bill. >> the biden ministration said the bill will be fully paid for even though a congressional budget office analysis shows a significant shortfall. still ahead, the dramatic scene just outside of milwaukee after an suv plowed through a holiday parade. and more bad luck for the golden gate fields after reports say several horses died at the facility this week. and just when you think you have seen it all, how much some californians are paying to taste water. we are watching the close of a spectacular sunday and mid-
developing news and wisconsin. multiple people are reportedly hurt after an suv slammed through a holiday parade and this happened in a town outside of milwaukee. cell phone video shows the suspected car racing through several road barriers and some witnesses reported hearing gunshots in that area. emergency crews are still on the scene. this is a developing story and we will continue to follow it and have more update on our news at 6:00.

believe it or not, some people in southern california are paying to participate in water tastings. one west hollywood hotel is actually offering water tastings for $75 and the host, martin rees, is the first certified water some all you, and like the ones who do wine, he studies the unique, albeit subtle, flavors of bottle water. >> water without flavor doesn't exist and every water has a taste and i like people who say this is crazy because there is a chance for me to touch them on a different level and say, wait a minute, give me the chance to explain that water is not just water. >> for restaurants that feature familiar and lesser-known brands with the pairing of seasonal foods, his water recommendation ranges in price
to a few dollars to a few hundred dollars and the only bottles he refuses to touch her those labeled as purified or distilled. you shouldn't touch any water that comes from the sky because that is the water we want. i think this is a nice transition to you. what you think about that? we know the free stuff falling from the sky is not coming for a while and we are kind of out of the rain business for the next several days and with thanksgiving coming up, it is good timing. there are no significant weather issues for thanksgiving here. we will look nationally in a few seconds and i show you where there may be some hiccups for travel plans. but before thanksgiving, we will talk about the start of your week and this is the close of sunday and what was a spectacular day in high time days were 70 and mid-to upper 60s for much of the bay and smooth sailing now going across the san mateo bridge looking west heading over toward the peninsula and if you really want to look west you can see way out past over here from the
top of the sales force tower. you can leave that shot behind as nice as that is and here's another one for you. we do know it is clear with no clouds and we did great this morning and the fog and likely keep the fog contained tomorrow although not as well as today but some patchy areas of fog possible monday morning but this won't be a fog scenario and we had a lot of that over the last week and a half but thanks to an offshore wind event last night, it helped dry out the lower levels just enough so the fog didn't really materialize today. we lose tomorrow some of that influence and it will start to redevelop a little bit more and it will be colder little bit tomorrow so be advised and the daytime highs tomorrow is just as nice as today warming up into the mid-60s again and fantastic on monday. the storm track takes everything away from us and you can see where the clouds are going and what is happening on the big pitcher is we miss out
on a storm over the next 24 hours because everything goes up into the pacific northwest and you can see the accumulated rainfall between now and sunday and this went all the way through the holiday and nothing happens here and it keeps raining up there and that is typical for this time of year although british columbia has been getting an insane amount of rainfall and a whole other story. this is the forecast for thanksgiving. it will be sunny and mid-to upper 60s. that is here and you don't have to think about it at all and travel here will be a piece of cake. i will look at the country now at a whole. on wednesday afternoon, for the most part there is not a whole lot going on but it is subtle but right over here there is no so we will see some light snow which is a hub and some tryst -- transitions on wednesday but the rest of the country you can see chicago and atlanta. but on thursday there will be some rain and the midsection of the country but we are where we need to be in there does it need to be any thing significant. this shows you what we were talking about a second ago with
no rain and not for san francisco or oakland or san jose and if we look across the microclimate it is the same story here. we may cool down by the middle of the week but that is it. back over to you. content, content, content. straight ahead, that team in scarlet and gold is making a move and a game all set up for the 49ers to mail it welcome to this world. you have some big shoes to fill. lots of new introductions. ...4 ounces... so many new toys. it's not going to be easy. but, together, we got this. kaiser permanente. thrive. - [narrator] it's a mixed up world. and the way we work looks a little different. but whether you embrace the new normal or just want to get back to the routines that feel right, x-chair continues to be at the forefront of change, which is why we've launched the all new x-chair with elemax. elemax combines gentle body temperature regulation with stress melting massage to increase your comfort working from home or at the office.
