two news. this is the fourth. today we learned one woman has been taken into custody by police. welcome to the four i'm greg lee and for heather and i'm alex savage. the good news here is that both of those children were found unharmed last night, but certainly those were agonizing hours for their parents. ktvu crime reporter henry lee. he's joining us now live from concord and henry you talked today with the mother of one of those children. yes. this mother is clearly relieved and now conquered in pittsburgh. police are comparing notes trying to see if the suspect behind bars could potentially be linked to both kidnappings. or if this is just a coincidence. it was a living nightmare, and i'm just very thankful that she's safe with us. now sally cisneros, paez is grateful that her one year old daughter is back home after a woman stole the family's suv with the little girl inside. that woman is now in custody. i am speechless. there's nothing i could say to
4:01 pm
him very angry and upset towards her, and i just don't understand why it happened at about 5 45 thursday afternoon near an auto body shop in pittsburgh. in this surveillance video, you see the girl's father making a u turn into chevy tahoe. he pulls over to talk to another man. and then here you see a woman approach, police say she asked the two men for a cigarette, then suddenly got into the tahoe. he went to check on the baby, and as he checked on her, the lady hopped in the truck and took off with the truck here. you see the father running after the suv. the woman dumped the tahoe at a nearby apartment complex. neighbors called police less than two hours after the kidnapping. it was parked here for about an hour. i hear and then. one of the neighbors heard a baby crying and when they heard the baby crying, it flashed the lights and saw the baby. and when they saw the bab, they called the police. the girl was reunited with her family. thank you for literally all the hard work and just doing their part and just bringing her home safely. just after midnight
4:02 pm
early friday, a witness spotted a woman matching the descriptio. police arrested 24 year old natalie ayala. in a second case at about 10 thursday night and conquered a four month old girl was kidnapped when someone stole a honda odyssey at a shopping center at national valley road and clayton. the minivan was found a half hour later nearby, with the infant inside unharmed. that baby girl was also reunited with family. the suspect was gone. concord police tell me it's unclear if the two incidents are connected. while it is very similar. we're not going to confirm any speculation on it. we are pursuing all investigative leads. now. the investigation by concord and pittsburgh police are continuing now i reached out to natalie yala, the suspect in the pittsburgh case for a jailhouse interview, but she declined. reporting live at the concord police department. henry lee ktvu, fox two news and henry. i know at this point, there's no nothing to suggest that the two cases are connected, but but do we know whether concord police in pittsburgh police are sharing
4:03 pm
information about these separate cases to try to see if there are similarities? yes they are certainly aware of each other's case, so they are getting together and meeting and trying to see if this woman could be linked or if she has nothing to do with the concord case. all right, henry lee live force and conquered. thank you. there is now a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the freeway shooting that took the life 23 month old boy in oakland, jasper was hit by a stray bullet. last saturday's he was sleeping in his car seat. the bullet was reportedly from a gang related gun fight on interstate 80. the shooting has some local groups calling on the chp for better protection and more law enforcement presence on bay area freeways. we need more patrol. why because you know, in the cities where police but criminals know so much so well about if they could just trouble with one city to another city. they are actually. a limitation of what they can do. and the
4:04 pm
other city. so the california highway patrol head to the bridge of helping us. you know, stopping or slow down this crime? the oakland chinatown chamber of commerce also announced a go fund me for jasper was family. so far it has raised more than $200,000. a 70 year old woman has been arrested in connection with the crash that killed a para educator in san francisco earlier this week, people have been placing flowers and candles at the intersection of union and franklin streets. that's where 30 year old andrew seaman was hit on wednesday today, police said. susan vienn, ruchi ran a red light and caused a crash between several cars. one of those cars jumped the curb and hit semen. bana rucci was arrested at the scene on charges of vehicular manslaughter. zemun worked at sherman elementary school, which is near the scene of the crash. some doctors say a new covid search could be just around the corner, with hospitalizations increasing in some spots around
4:05 pm
the country, including parts of california. that warning comes as more covid vaccine doses are getting two kids ages. 5 to 11. but its boxes, griff jenkins shows us there's a potential snag in the vaccination push for kids. we're not out of the woods yet health officials are warning of a possible fifth covid surge with cases spiking in more than a dozen states and hospitalizations on the rise as well. in colorado hospitals are so overwhelmed officials have enacted crisis standards of car, the national guard helping staff some hospitals in at least three fema medical search teams have been deployed. and on thursday, governor jared polis signed an executive order allowing booster shots for all adults in the state, saying it's the best way to bring infection rates down. i really encourage everybody to get that third dose of the vaccine. i got mine and i'm 46
4:06 pm
get it no matter what. your age. meanwhile the feds are making a big push to get kids to roll up their sleeves. by the end of the weekend, the cdc says more than a million children ages, 5 to 11 will have gotten their first dose and in some areas, demand is starting to outpace supply as soon as the authorization when we started refreshing, like the walgreens website and the cbs website and trying to find a appointment, there have been no widespread reports of serious side effects. but one pharmacy in northern virginia announced this week. they gave adult doses to more than 100. children officials are investigating the mistake and hoping it doesn't add to the lingering vaccine hesitancy. a lot of people are still waiting. in the cdc's says kids, given the wrong dose can still proceed with the second dose three weeks later. in washington. griff jenkins fox news. here in california. every adult who wants a covid booster shot can now get one, the
4:07 pm
state's health department has told healthcare providers not to turn away adults who want to boost her shot. and they said anyone age 18 or older should be able to self determine their risk and get a booster shot when they're ready. cdc guidelines, though at this point are advising booster shots for people who are 65 or older or younger people with underlying medical conditions or who work in high risk areas. for more. we're joined now by dr peter chin hong infectious disease specialist at u. c. s f. dr chen hong always appreciate your tim. so any adult here in california who wants a booster shot. can now get one under these new rules. how much of a difference do you think this is going to make in terms of getting more people? those additional doses? i think it'll make some difference, alex, but i think as evidence in the states where boosting has had the highest uptick, it's usually when people see that cases arising and they're worried. i think it was prescient of california to do
4:08 pm
this. it's kind of like before we get to colorado state of emergency, so i think it makes it simpler. the rules, uh, more straightforward. i think it's being proactive before the holiday travel and people coming in from europe. do you think, though, that we, you know, as a state, maybe we should have considered expanding eligibility for booster shots. a little bit earlier. i mean, maybe this could have helped to get more shots into people's arms if we hadn't put restrictions in place during that initial rollout. uh yeah, i think that might have been the case in hindsight, alex because, you know, i think people, uh, heard the confusion in terms of subgroups. they weren't really sure if they were eligible. some people, you know, self attested. i think this brings it all out in the open and hopefully we'll increase uptake. i'm most worried about over 65 year olds. and in your compromise, they've usually got the vaccine. definitely more
4:09 pm
than six months ago. we're starting to see that population yet into the hospital now, even though they have been vaccinate, um again, moussa unvaccinated. but that's a group that we're seeing waning a little bit other people they may need it to prevent transmission infection to grandma across the country. sure the cdc, though meantime still, as we pointed out, it's only recommending booster shots for those over 65 or people over 18 who have underlying conditions or who work in those high risk settings. is it your expectation that federal health officials are likely to follow california's lead here and recommend that everyone who wants to booster shot go out and get one? definitely i think this will likely come. um faisal put in the formal, uh, fda approval notice earlier this week, and they'll deliberate, maybe not for too long, a few weeks. i think the idea is that they will have a national ruling sometime before thanksgiving, so that at
4:10 pm
least everywhere around the country, people can get it as you alluded to a short time ago. obviously health officials are urging as many people as possible to get those booster shots. before the holiday seaso, which which is nearly upon us here, because as you know, doctor here in california, we're seeing cases, hospitalizations and deaths from covid 19 all trending up right now. how worried are you about this potential for a winter search? i think it will look different from last year. we're not going to see as many deaths overall what we're gonna see regional u, surges that are going to be more dangerous possible in called in sacramento area. center of ali and parts of southern californi. hopefully the bay area won't see too much. uh we will see a bump for sure. and the other, uh, scary thought that i have is a combination of. blue hospitalizations, plus a little bumping covid and the reaction. the relationship between two
4:11 pm
that might lead to utilization of resources are more than anticipated. yes so a good idea to get that flu shot along with that booster dose as well as we move toward the holidays and a lot more folks are going to be hanging out spending time indoors with relatives. alright. appreciate your time today, dr peter chin hong infectious disease specialist. at ucsf have a nice weekend. you too, alex. thank you. britney spears is free after 13 years of others making decisions for the pop star. she's now control of her own life more on what the judge said about brittany and what the decision means for her future. also the trial of kyle rittenhouse is coming to an end. we'll get a live report from kenosha, wisconsin, about the testimony jurors have heard so far and what's next in the legal proceedings? it's a fantastic weather friday out there with temperatures well above the seasonal norm. i'll have a look at the current conditions and what you can expect for your bay what you can expect for your bay area weekend coming up. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪

deadly astro world festival disaster in texas. nine people were killed and hundreds of others were injured in a crowd surge at the music festival last friday, while travis scott was performing. the lawsuits were filed by victims who say they were injured mentally physically or psychologically at the event. i never thought that by attending the festival. i was taking the chance that i would possibly not return home to my children. and i remember looking at the two people that i saw there and then all the sudden someone just fell on us. and that's what honestly freaked me out the most. and i looked at them and i told them i can't do this is basically a war zone. and it just got worse and worse, the closer. two. when travis was coming out, we will make sure that they get justice. because this should have never ever happened. these new filings put
4:15 pm
the total number of lawsuits above 200 those suits named travis scott, the show producer, live nation, along with others. closing arguments are scheduled to begin monday in the trial of kyle rittenhouse. he's accused of killing two people and shooting another person during police protests last year in wisconsin. fox's you, vonnie leisure is joining us from kenosha, where geo. we could possibly have a verdict as early as next week. good evening, greg. will we could those closing arguments will begin on monday. the case could be hinted to the jury either late monday evening or early tuesday mornin, and law enforcement agencies here in wisconsin are actually planning for possible protests. i was cornered from in front of me with mr tyminski. after a week of shocking testimony. and he did. arguments between the
4:16 pm
judge and prosecution for the contest. brazen with me, i was astonished. when you began your examination by commenting on the defendant's post arrest silence, both sides of the rittenhouse trail have officially rested their cases. state formally arrested its case and we would rest. but even today with the jury gun if there were more arguments following the prosecution's request for the courts to consider lesser charges if they are agreeing that rittenhouse is facing life in prison if convicted. his mother is now speaking out, my son. it's not a white surprise. it's not a racist. he's a caring young man. he has a hard to goa. the prosecution believes written house acted with ill intent, however, rittenhouse's stands firm in his self defense claims people were saying cranium him get him. kill him. it people are
4:17 pm
screaming, and i just was trying to get to the police running down sheridan road and you say i'm trying to get to the police. why were you trying to get to the police? so i didn't do anything wrong. i defended myself. and now we have heard from 31 witnesses over the past nine days. those closing arguments on monday will be the last opportunity for both the prosecution and defense to present their cases to the jury. geo as you said, things have certainly been heated in this courtroom. rittenhouse's lawyers have asked the judge to declare a mistrial. have we heard when we might get a ruling from him? absolutely so just a few days ago, we heard word of the defense called for a mistrial with prejudice. and just for a little explainer with prejudice means written house could not be tried for these crimes again. if it is granted and at this point. the judge has not made a decision on that. you talk about police, bracing for potential protests any more details on how they are doing that. absolutely
4:18 pm
so the national guard is on standby. we heard word about that from the governor's office today in the police department here in kenosha, is also preparing as well. last year, it was a similar situation with those protests are we have seen some people out here, but nothing. uh like last year to this point. giovanni luigi in kenosha for us tonight, joe. thank you. britney spears is finally a free woman just over an hour ago in los angeles judge ended the conservative ship that has controlled the pop star's life and money since 2000 and eight britney's father, jamie spears no longer has power over britney's $60 million estate or her medical and personal decisions, the judge said today the singer is now capable of overseeing her own affairs, and the conservative ship is no longer needed. her lawyer spoke to reporters outside the courthouse shortly after today's ruling. not only is this momentous for britney but she helped shines. a light. i'm not
4:19 pm
only this conservative ship was which was corrupted. by her father, james p. spears. but she helped shine a light on conservatorships and guardianships from coast to coast. the ruling comes after the singer in june gave a scathing statement in court about the restrictive conservatorship. temperatures this afternoon. five even 10 degrees above the seasonal average and slightly warmer expected for your bay area saturday and sunday, giving you a live look here over san francisco. isn't that a gorgeous view? a little bit of fog there. coming into the bay. you can see how shallow the marine layer is comparison to the golden gate bridge. in fact, we can see the golden gate bridge, which gives you an indication of just how shallow that marine layer is outside and around the bay area. you may have noticed little bit of hayes. we've had the fog out there this morning. air quality does remain good to moderate and is expected to remain this way rolling into your weekend as
