would be thieves in their tracks. when he pulled out his gun, turning the tables on those thieves. good evening, everyone . i'm mike mibach and i'm julie julie haener. that dramatic scene played out inside 10 friend mall in san bruno. and because of what the owner did, those would be thieves left empty handed. ktvu is alex savage joins us. now he's in the newsroom and alex. we spoke with the owner about why he did what he did. yeah. julie when that group ran into his store and started smashing display cases, the owner huisman body didn't hesitate to pull out his gun. and even though one of those men was armed body says he wasn't scared. at that point? no because i mean, because my whole body my mind was in a in a, uh, is working was working in a respond on that just to respond to. basically i wasn't really thinking of too much of the consequences i want. it was in my mind at that time just to protect my property. and that's
6:01 pm
what i did. yeah. this all happened last friday afternoon inside mas jewelers at the 10 foreign mall in san bruno. surveillance video shows the confrontation from a number of different angles. spotty was standing outside the store when that group of five people would be robbers raced inside, and one of them started to smash a display case with a crowbar. without hesitation, but he pulled his gun and told the man to stop. one of the other suspects also pulled out a gun and pointed it at body. but the group ran off without taking a single piece of jewelry. but he says he wasn't trying to be a hero. in this case. he just wanted to protect his store. no actually, i'm not trying to be here or macho man. it's because i mean, i know my feeling. my friends also told me the same thing, but that's not what i wanted to be just like happened very quick. and then i had no choice. now ever since he reopened his jewelry store after the pandemic shutdowns. baty
6:02 pm

6:03 pm
imagine that that they're you know, we could have had gunfire here as a result of this confrontation. thankfully no one was hurt. but as you heard, he's been concerned about something like this playing out at his store, and here it happened and he was ready. alright, alex. thank you. thank you, alexa wild series of events in the south bay today. it played out over several hours, beginning with a violent attack inside a san jose home and ending with the suspect dead on a highway in cupertino. ktvu crime reporter henry lee as the story. it began at two in the morning wednesday with the report of a stabbing at a home on to hama avenue. not far from reid hillview airport. we gotta call multiple people that were stabbed at this residence. when officers arrived, very chaotic scene. san jose police sergeant christian camarillo said three victims were stabbed at the home . all are expected to survive. a motive is under investigation, but police quickly identified the attacker and his vehicle because he and the victims lived together. police issued a be on the lookout to all area agencies. within a couple of
6:04 pm
hours. his car was found deputy with the santa clara county sheriff's department found the suspect's vehicle in the western part of the city not too far from de anza and highway 85. soon after 911 call started coming into the chp, several calls that came in were stating that there was a pedestrian the freeways. chp officer ross lee says it became clear that the pedestrian wasn't there by accident. that pedestrian hit was jumping in and out of traffic appear to be jumping in front of vehicles shortly after that, another call that the person had been hit by a car driver on his way just morning commute on his way to work. it was a nissan titan truck. the driver said he was unable to avoid a collision. he stayed on the scene and cooperated with the chp. san jose police came to the crash scene, quickly connected the dots and were able to confirm that the pedestrian that died in that fatality. was our suspect for the multiple stabbings on to hama. the early morning fog made it especially
6:05 pm
hazardous for investigators. so the chp shut down all north, um, lanes on the highway for several hours. authorities process both scenes and are continuing the investigation. obviously very tragic sequence of events this morning three victims their injuries ranging from minor to moderate. and now we have the deceased suspect. people of the house with a stabbing occurred did not want to comment. a woman there told me they were still trying to process. what happened. the name of the suspect has not been released. had he survived, he could have faced charges of attempted murder in san jose henry lee ktvu, fox two news. the u. s supreme court is about to change with a long serving liberal justice set to retire a justice with strong ties to the bay area and one of the possible front runners to replace justice stephen breyer also has strong ties to california. justice breyer is expected to step down after serving more than a quarter century on the nation's highest court. ktvu political reporter greg lee live now in the newsroom, and greg president
6:06 pm
, biden has a chance to deliver on a campaign promise with his first appointment. julia that's right. then candidate biden promised to name a black woman to the bench. this is his chance. justice breyer has often said the court is not and should not be a political institution. it is hard not to see the calculus here. as the midterms approach the democrats holding a razor thin majority in the senate. and of course, i think that the more you know, i mean, i know supreme court justice stephen breyer is reportedly set to retire at the end of this term from the nation's highest court. the courts senior liberal san francisco native is 83. his departure will give president biden his first chance to name a new justice. democrats and progressives know that the window to fill this seat with one of president biden's nominees is closing, closing closing. progressives have been calling for breyer to retire while democrats still hold the slimmest majority in the senate vice president harris the tiebreaking vote, though abiding appointment won't change the 63
6:07 pm
conservative majority, bolstered by former president trump's three picks, it would preserve the liberal wing even though it doesn't change the current composition. the court in the sense of it doesn't change the balance of power. it makes sure that this court will not become a 7 to 2 conservative majority court. there has been no announcement from justice breyer let him make whatever statement he's going to make, and i'll be happy to talk about it. later white house press secretary jen psaki did confirm the president stands by his campaign promise to nominate a black woman to the bench. black woman on the supreme court. is really a game changer. it is big. it is huge. leslie davis is the ceo of the national association of minority and women owned law firms. she's hopeful the president delivers two women on the short list. dc circuit judge catania brown jackson, california supreme court justice leandra kruger. we're not just adding color for color sake or ethnicity for ethnicity sake, we're adding
6:08 pm
another layer of excellence of perspective of experience. whoever is picked faces a confirmation hearing in a fiercely divided senate. majority leader chuck schumer wrote. president biden's nominee will receive a prompt hearing in the senate judiciary committee and will be considered and confirmed by the full united states senate with all deliberate speed, schumer is reportedly eyeing the same 30 day timeline republicans used to confirm justice amy coney barrett after the death of ruth bader ginsburg. republican senator lindsey graham acknowledged democrats power in the senate writing elections have consequences, and that is most evident when it comes to fulfilling vacancies on the supreme court. something important to note here. while breyer is retirement is being widely reported, we have yet to see a formal statement from the court or the justice. the supreme court term typically ends in late june early july. in the newsroom. gregory ktvu, fox tuners and greg, are you hearing any early republican chatter
6:09 pm
that whoever the president decides to choose as the nominee? will they try to block ? yes, senator mitch mcconnell has long said that he would block any sort of move they would make on the supreme court. but the bottom line is democrats. because of the way the senate is split right now, it's senator chuck schumer being the majority leader. there is little republicans will have to say in the process, but there are certainly avenues they can take to slow down the actual confirmation. but as long as democrats have the votes, they can move forward. all right, greg lee reporting live for us tonight, greg. thank you. there is new evidence that shows so called super immunity against severe infection for people who are up to date on their covid vaccinations after they've been infected with the virus as foxes . jonathan syria reports. the news comes as booster shots are lagging right here in the united states. the covid booster drive may be losing steam. cdc data show just 40% of fully vaccinated americans have received the extra shot. the average number of boosters given each day has also dropped from last month's peak. doctor

the city's nightlife scene, he says. it draws billions of dollars and opening new bars in the castro could be a part of the key to get in the city's economy roaring again. it's another thriving business that people go to and they feel a sense of community in their neighborhood, and it provides a ton of jobs. and so right now in the castro absolutely needs more bars in the castro. residents and visitors alike say they'd like to see more bars as a way to reawaken the city's nightlife. yeah i think it's great. a lot of places have closed during covid. so it'd be nice to see the neighborhood become more lively like it was before covid. i really wish like the summertime like they would reopen so i can go back to dancing. the idea here isn't to open wall to wall bars and the castro there are still rules in place. any new bar would have to have a conditional use permit, meaning they'd be subject to review and neighborhood input. in san francisco christian captain ktvu fox two news.

alright some changes coming our way, but they're slow and they're not going to be wet changes, but they could lead to wet. what's that mean? well here we are. right now. this is a long range model. here we are thursday. see the fog come back to the coast. and then you see some clouds move in on friday morning into friday afternoon so that ridge is getting chipped away at a little bit specially on friday afternoon, and then here comes saturday. you see that next system coming in saturday afternoon sunday morning? and then it looks like because that has been weakened. this area has a better opportunity for lower latitudes strike so maybe some showers in northern california maybe a sprinkle on monday for us. but that's how it looks. so there's no made big rain event. but i wanted to show you that because the idea that that high is going to break down and after 19 days of rain, no rain, we might get a shot at something. in the meantime, though, it's steady as she goes with plenty of sunshine and a few clouds showing up as
6:49 pm
we head into thursday and friday. these are the highest from today. highs tomorrow will be about the same and that no big surprise there. i mean, for over 23 weeks, we've been looking at the same weather pattern. no fog at the golden gate bridge out of dense fog advisory this morning. could easily see one again tomorrow morning in some places, especially inland for us. for the most part, it's steady as she goes with that cloud increased coming on thursday and friday. in the coastal fog returning probably on thursday and friday on thursday night into friday, as well and just dry really dry and spend, you know against fortunate we've had rain, but in good amounts of rain, but, boy, we have a long way to go to make up for any even if we go, 102 100% of rainfall average this year. we're still in trouble right because we're in multiple years of drought. these are the current temperatures. these are the forecast overnight lows very similar to what we've been saying. no big changes. hopefully something breaks loose in that 1st 1st week in february, the forecast highs tomorrow instead of seventies
