daylight pictures of the perimeter set up by the police. they're not letting anybody or in or out. they are keeping all of the relatives. at a nearby holiday inn. and you can just see that they've been waiting all night there. they have word of whether their loved ones are ok and this is the process and why we haven't learned the identities of those who have been killed in this because the coroner's office says that they need to first notify next of kin. >> and that is the process that is playing out at that hotel. that's about a mile away from this fedex facility in what's been really frustrating for a lot of families that have shown up there is that in some cases perhaps their family members, ok, but they haven't heard yet because a lot as part of the policy there fedex. they have to turn in their phones when they show up for their shift. and in the mad dash to escape the gunfire. a lot of these employees scattered unable to get their phones back and unable to notify family right away that they were were ok in some of the family was lucky enough to get the although they waited hours. let's listen.

7:06 am
now. northbound one. oh, one at grand avenue in south san francisco looking at the bay bridge and across india to the city right now under 12 minutes for your drive. time to that fremont street exit. now we do have a high wind advisory along the venetian martinez bridge. the san mateo bridge here under 40 minutes as you make your way across towards the peninsula. looking at the richmond, sandra fell community at a richmond under 9 minutes, we had some early morning crashes along 8.80 in fremont in newark. those are all clear and looking at things along one o one in 2.80, here. 29 minutes as you head towards middle part. so we'll have more on that up next. but for now darya and james, back to you. >> all right. thank you very much. rain a 7 '06, in the east bay. we have an independent investigation now that's found to san leandro police officers failed to follow the department's use of force policies in the 2020 fatal shooting. the shooting happened last april in kron. four's will tran is live now with more on what we know now. will. >> here's what you need to
7:07 am
know. the important part is the an independent investigator they looked at their policy by the san leandro police department. so they use their own policy, compared it to what the officers did back in april of 2020 and they came back with the conclusion that they did not follow their own department's policy on how to de escalate possibly violent situation ended up killing steven taylor at a walmart about 2 miles from this location. now steven taylor. he was inside the walmart. he was holding an aluminum baseball bat. he was threatening employees when the officers rushed in. according to the independent investigators, those officers should have used other tactics to de escalate the situation and perhaps steven taylor might still be alive. but instead within 40 seconds of arriving to the store. both officers deployed their tasers and then one officer actually fired on steven taylor that officer's name is jason
7:08 am
fletcher. he has been charged with voluntary manslaughter for the death of steven taylor he's the first bay area. officer to be charged with voluntary manslaughter since yo-han-is messily. he was the bart police officer who shot and killed oscar grant on the bart platform. so that's the second officer in the bay area within 10 years to be charged with voluntary manslaughter as far as the other officer, his name is stephanie over 10. he did not fire a shot. he used the taser and san leandro police department. they have until june to decide what to do with him, whether or not he will be released from the police department or if he faces disciplinary action. the independent investigator pretty much concurred with that district attorney of alameda county, believing that jason fletcher did not have to fire that shot back to you. all right. thanks a lot. we'll. >> 7.

7:10 am
demand comes 2 weeks after the school district announced that classes will remain closed and distance. learning will be what they do to finish out the year. this is video of those parents protesting the school's closures earlier this month. they're worried that distance learning is having a negative impact on their young students. >> that's about a 1000 students that have gotten more d's and f's than ever. this is learning. obviously it's not working for them and they deserve to in person option brady frustrating that this is not working. every day you hear the news. a fan of the district that is opening. >> and our says not opening. >> parents are also demanding that the school district approved a plan by april 30th for the return to full time in person instruction. meanwhile, parents in the south san francisco unified school district will actually have the option to bring their students back to campus for in person learning soon. officials installed 30 of these mobile disinfection

7:15 am
only one more day, though. so if you like the 70's saver today. as much as you can. sure. it's a bit of a gray or start to the morning than what we saw yesterday. but sunshine is about to make its way back out in full force just got to wait for it a little bit longer today, especially towards 09:00am to 10:00am this morning as for current conditions in berkeley, you've got a good look at there. a second ago. you can see that gray that's hovering right overhead this morning. yesterday. at the same point we were getting a solid dose of sunshine streaming its way down into the bay. but this morning it obviously isn't offering up that much sunshine just yet. radar. currently we are looking at some areas of low visibility, including some fog across the north bay as well as across the inland east bay, too. so you may want to give yourselves a little extra time. if you've got some travels on routes such as right on through the tri valley. even through solano county and then especially along one o one. we are seeing some spots where visibility isn't necessarily the best in all areas this morning. high
7:16 am
pressure is about to be building its way back into this forecast and what that's going to do for us. as a result in that warm up that we have these next couple of days. today. we're still in the midst of mild weather. but tomorrow is when the heat really starts to kick into gear today. also going to be on the calmer side as far as winds go winds do gradually pick up towards the finish of the day today really after 04:00pm is when we'll start to see some of those winds really kicking back into gear. futurecast shows more dry weather. that's the least surprising thing about this forecast as we make our way into the heat and then eventually a cool down next week. they area still not tapping into really any chances of rainfall. let's get you a look ahead at what we can expect into the afternoon. it's a range of 50's to 60's for san francisco and elsewhere on the peninsula. some of our cooler spots and you may want to keep the jacket on hand in these areas. a return to the 70's for the south bay, though with san jose as well as campbell each at 72 degrees for your highs. temperatures across the east bay similar 60's to 70's pleasanton. 72 oakland 64 our

7:30 am
police are on scene. the entire parking lot is cordoned off right now as are still going through the evidence trying to piece together the sequence of events. >> and the motive behind why the gunman did what he did. we know it lasted no more than a minute and a half to 2 minutes. witnesses report seeing the gunman with something that looked to them an automatic rifle. and then he started opening fire the minute he got out of his car in the parking lot and continued opening fire as he entered the building when he was done 8 people were dead and there were more than a half a dozen injured. at least 4 were taken by ambulance. and we know one is in grave. >> critical condition. you can see one of the ambulances rushing from the scene there. this all unfolded around 11 o'clock their time last night and we are waiting for a press conference because we want to know was he a fedex worker? was this somehow work related being time. you know, all the families are waiting for word on who the victims are as well as at the shooter. we don't know. we don't even have the names of the victims in these poor families. they had no cell phone communication
