5:31 am
aspect of this month. april did not bring california what it needed, though. >> we were talking about march. so hopefully we get the rainfall. and then april came. we get the rainfall. neither months really came through for us. actually that's why we're in the situation. we are with increasing drought and decreasing reservoir levels. at least we have seen sunny skies, though. there's your plus to it. you look outside this morning at san francisco does show some low cloud cover sitting over head. we're not really talking fog this morning, though, as this blanket of cloud cover is sitting solidly above the bay area. winds relatively calm to start but do pick up later on today. setting us up for a breezy day tomorrow and temperatures. right now we're in the 40's and 50's with oakland and alameda each at 52 degrees. some of our warmer spots include areas like pittsburgh dublin, hayward even hanging out in the mid to upper 50's right now. reyna. >> you are hitting the roads on this friday morning. pretty light. for the most part. hopefully we stay this way, heading into the city right now to the fremont street exit from the maze will take you a
5:32 am
little under 9 minutes to do that. no major delays here. we do, however, have a high wind advisory along the san mateo bridge. so you want to take your time. we've already seen some stalled vehicles along the bridge early this morning. 12 minutes to head across towards the peninsula. looking at the richmond, sandra fell commute is that starts to slowly but surely pick up a little under 8 minutes and we still have that accident right here in crockett as you're getting all the bridge it's 80 eastbound at pomona street, a traffic collision. they're still not seeing any major delays. also along highway 4. so things are looking great out there. we'll have more coming up next. our ian james. we'll send it over to you. thanks. right now. >> so 5.32 is the time. and for the first time we're hearing the 911. calls now made before mario gonzalez died while in alameda police custody in the recording. you can hear 2 different men. they are calling to report what's going on with gonzales. in my front garden talking to himself. no mask. and i went
5:33 am
out there and the dog to bark at them and dog in towards these are not making any he's doing anything wrong. scare in my any weapons on him. now he has become a local you've been pushing into air. the it does appear to be an effort count. might be kind of has been what kind of loitering around there for probably half an hour down. >> so, you know, you're the callers saying that he wasn't alarmed. he wasn't. he just threatening wanted the police to check it out. yeah. and now we're also hearing from gonzalez family. they say the officer. >> officers that got involved had no right to detain mario. and according to their attorney, the officer should face criminal charges from forcefully to call has the story. >> mario gonzalez's family says his death was murder and that the alameda police officers involved in is in custody. death last week should face criminal charges.
5:34 am
but their civil rights attorney michael had dad says it's important all facts are noon before he can definitively say mario was killed intentionally. i'm a lawyer so i can just toss that word murder around easily. i know it's a term of art, right. and so there is some investigation going on. dad says, though, that he is convinced the officers share responsibility for mario's passing whether voluntary manslaughter involuntary manslaughter. something higher. >> i it's not really for me to say. but i do think there should be some criminal consequences. in addition to the civil consequences as dad explores a civil suit against the officers. he pushes back at the attorney representing them who claims the officers worked hard to calmly end their encounter with mario peacefully. >> a dad says the body camera video released shows a different story when the officers responded to 911. calls april 19th reporting a possibly intoxicated man loitering in a park on oak
5:35 am
street and that he was possibly involved in a theft. there is no reason to touching it all and officer mckinley spent. >> a few minutes talking to him. during which time he found out that mario was harmless friendly. and by his own business. and so the officer should have gone to the the household that made the call and told them we've checked into the matter. you don't have anything to be afraid of and the man is not breaking any laws and just not instead, mario was wrestled to the ground and suffered what police call a medical emergency as the officers applied pressure to his back. >> well, the officers remain on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigations into mario's death. his family is preparing pfuneral arrangements, phillip djegal all kron 4 years. >> 5.35 and today travis air force base is loading up planes with covid relief supplies for india. yeah. we talked yesterday about how they're going to be helping out and getting the supplies there. india, as we know, is
