6:01 pm
jose and other cities around the bay area, but in oakland, it seems to have escalated and gunfire is bringing added danger. a quick search and social media post of side shows in oakland are easy to find, such as this one taken late saturday posted on youtube. come to oakland, california, baby gunshot, somebody shooting in oakland city council member confirms two men were shot and wounded early sunday during a sideshow near 98th avenue and international victims are reported to be in stable condition and are not considered innocent. bystanders my understanding is that the two who were injured were participating in the sideshow on beyonce occurred that lead to the gunfire, a lifelong oakland resident says he's frustrated by what he calls complete lawlessness. it's gotten worse has gotten worse because they know they can get away with it. they know. all
6:02 pm
they have to do is outnumber the police, oakland police have a task force to address the problem and have been confiscating vehicles for 30 days, which has provided evidence. many sideshow participants are outsiders. there is firm evidence from the cars that are being told and other stops that are made when pursuing side shows that many folks are not from the city council member. taylor says the city needs a multi pronged approach to solve the problem and is looking at using improved intelligence to anticipate gatherings and respond faster. the city is also looking at harsher penalties, the oakland or we spoke with says his solution is simple and effective. you get kind of a side show. spinning out doughnuts. you lose your car. you don't get your car back. you on the bus now changing infrastructure is also something being pondered, such as adding dividers mediums around abouts, an area's ripe for side shows, pushing the problem into low enforcement. uninhabited areas once considered may no longer be an
6:03 pm
option. now that side shows are bringing gunfire. clearly there are safety challenges when you have guns that are being shot and fired off. multiple rounds during a sideshow, no matter where you are, that is not safe. that is not something that we want to condone or allowed to occur. now, councilman taylor says sideshow enforcement has been limited lately due to budget constraints. but he says the federal relief bill is going to be providing some new money that should help add additional resource is for enforcement, andre. all right, greg liggins. thank you so much tonight. or not, we'll look at the weather and rain moving on. sure this is a look at the golden gate bridge toll plaza, slick roads. the headlights are on. this is part of a system moving through northern california right now. and ktvu chief meteorologist bill martin is here with a look at this wet weather system bill. yeah i'm getting a little bit more rain.
6:04 pm
it's kind of cold weather system. it's not gonna bring a lot of rain, santa rosa's had the bulk of their reign and they got up to about a quarter of an inch. thus far, they'll get a few more light showers. most of us have seen anywhere from 500 to 1/10 of 1/10 of an inch of rain. we could see anywhere from a quarter inch and some areas like a prawn gender and the russian river. i saw a half inch of rain. but it's pretty light for the most part. what you see outside right now is what you get. so there's a live picture. let's go look at the live radar. right just so you see exactly where it's raining and you look at the yellow areas representing the heavier rainfall in those areas were saying quarter inch a rate and our rainfall rates quarter inch an hour, which is a significant but short lived so, sandra phil, you're getting some significant yellows or moderate rainfall right now. richmond, oakland, san leandro as well. and then out walnut creek, braga. you see some yellows around oakland and then alameda, so you could see the distribution of this is that the edge of that when i pulled back their sandals, they will go a little further south here and you could see sounds. they did not seeing much of

6:06 pm
jim's to reopened, even though that we have already proven 9 10 months ago that we can operate safely for 100,000. peoe can now enter the red tier of california's re opening system. sonoma county meets that threshold as results. restaurants have the green light to open for indoor dining way came in. they had expected this sit outside, and when he told me that we can come inside, i was complaining a lot like very excited. welcome news for locals and tourists, according to county tourism data travel in the area decreased by 60% in 2020 like oh, my god, the rest are set up. it's a real now small businesses are ready and a static to partially welcome people back. it's everything super excited about the change, especially with due to weather. i'm definitely excited. just move moving forward. i'm james torres, ktvu fox two news,
6:07 pm
sacramento county could soon follow the bay area with a move into the red tear. the state capital is expected to move out of the most restrictive purple tear wednesday. and that would allow sacramento county restaurants to resume indoor dining at 25% capacity and the county's popular museums would be allowed to open their doors to visitors once again. it is arrested for people. it's a place to remove yourself from the stresses of your day from the world and not being able to have that sense of escape. i think has really been hard for everyone. sacramento county is among the growing number of areas across california, where there has been a sharp decline and covid-19 cases over recent weeks. there has also been a dramatic rise in vaccinations. well starting tomorrow, an estimated 4.4 million people in california will be added to the list of those eligible to receive the covid vaccine. they would include people between the ages of 16 and 64 with
6:08 pm
disabilities or underlying health conditions such as cancer and diabetes will join the people 65 older and those in high risk jobs, who are already eligible to be vaccinated. those eligible should contact their health care provider right away to book an appointment for a shot. here's a look now at the vaccine rollout so far, according to the cdc. nationwide almost 70 million people across the country have received at least one vaccine dose that's out of the 135 million distributed here in california, roughly eight million people have received at least one shot out of the 16 million doses distributed in our state. well tomorrow, the san matteo city council will consider adopting a measure to pay certain workers hazard paid. the ordinance requires that certain grocery stores and drugstores pay their workers an additional $5 an hour is compensation for their service during the covid-19 pandemic. the move comes as the california grocers association%y
6:09 pm
over mandates for hazard pay during the pandemic for grocery store workers. the lawsuit against daly city and san jose says the extra pay mandates are illegal because he single out grocery stores in california grocers association. such pay hikes will ultimately hurt customers and workers and could force layoffs. well, doctor anthony fauci issued a strong warning to americans today about staying vigilant against covid-19. yeah. do you have a baseline of infection that is quite high. and if you look at the numbers, we're not out of the woods yet. when you pull back on all mitigation methods on all public health guidelines, that's when you get into trouble and history has proven that christmas, dr fauci said people should continue to follow public health guidelines. oh he does agree with president binds prediction that every american adult should be eligible for vaccine by. may

6:23 pm
potential that something could organize. i got my fingers crossed for that something could organize that. thursday, friday thing could turn into a little more, so let's hope for that. in the meantime, the showers will continue on and off until about midnight. and then that should pretty much be over. i think valley fog might be a little thing in the morning, but that's about it. and then we got a nice day after that. i'll see you back here tonight at 10 and 11, bill. thank you. tomorrow one of the bay area's most popular tourist attractions is real, putting. the national park service is welcoming visitors back to alcatraz island ferries will run from san francisco to the prison known as the rock. although admission is limited to no more than 900 people a day ticket prices run from $25 to $41 and include the price of admission into the cell block, the gift shop and the theater. outdoor areas will also be open. well up. next we'll tell you who walked away with a $2.7 million check for winning the players championship. and how the warriors had one of their
