thank you for joining us. it is friday, july 8. i'm pam cook. >> i'm dave clark. we will talk about our top stories in a moment. first, let's check the weather. foggy and called for some. a lot of drizzle out there. the low clouds have made it pretty far inland. most observation say cloudy. that makes sense. there is a cold front on the north coast which is enhancing the fog bank. there are many reports of drizzle well inland. this will be a very cool pattern. the low clouds and fog's may be slow to retreat. for this time of year it is quite impressive some of this rain may make it down to mendocino or northern sonoma county. gusts over 30 in travis. 50s for temperatures. the breeze is the big story. there will be a robust fresh breeze behind these low clouds. the rain on the north coast may
drag enough across our area to get rain to folks in mendocino and lake county. very cool for this time of year. a lot of 60s and 70s in areas that should be warmer. we have some slow traffic out there. it is not too bad. let's go out to the bay bridge toll plaza. there is a little bit of waiting and some of those lanes trying to get into san francisco. you can tell it is lighter. is week has not been full strength. no major problems on the bridge. we're looking at a commute on the 580 freeway coming in from the altamont pass. 205 and 580 are slow. it does get better once you reach the livermore area. and san jose, northbound 280 traffic looks good. sodas 101 and 85 heading up to the west valley. we are following all of the developing news in dallas texas. last night, 14 people were shot, including 12 police
officers. five officers were killed last night in dallas a few were injured and are in critical condition. we just heard some are getting out of the hospital. in a news conference that ended a few minutes ago, the dallas police chief said one of the suspects in the shootings last night was killed in an explosion , set off by police. earlier during a standoff with police, he said he wanted to kill police officers and in particular, white police officers. dallas police are describing the attack as an ambush. >> the gunfire erupted during a protest against this week's controversial police shootings in louisiana and minnesota. alex savidge is in the newsroom with the latest developments in dallas. a good morning. we learned quite a bit of new information from that news conference with the police chief and mayor in dallas. the chief of police said the lone gunman, what appears to be the lone gunman is now dead
after a bomb squad robot detonated an explosive device near him, following a very long , tense standoff. the man said he acted alone in carrying out this ambush style attack that left 12 dallas police officers shot. this is video of the gunman who fired dozens of shots originally from an elevated position during this protest against police brutality. the attacker eventually was cornered by police officers who negotiated with him for hours into the night. during those negotiations, the man apparently told a negotiator he was upset about black lives matter. he also said he wanted to kill white people and in particular, white officers. >> we are hurting. our profession is hurting. dallas officers are hurting.
we are heartbroken. there are no words to describe the atrocity that occurred to our city. all i know is that, that this must stop. this divisiveness. >> reporter: this appears to have been a carefully planned attack on those dallas officers. federal and state authorities are coming in to help out in the investigation. the chief said a short time ago that the gunman told officers during that standoff last night that he acted alone in this attack and that he was not affiliated with any groups. still, as you can imagine, authorities are continuing massive investigations. they will continue to search for anyone else who may have been involved in the attack of health or possibly the planning of the attack.
four of the officers killed were with the dallas police department. one was a dallas area rapid transit officer or, dart. the agency identifies him as brent thompson. he joined the department in 2009 and is the first dart officer killed in the line of duty. three other police officers were shot and wounded. president obama talked about the shootings at the dallas police officers. he promised to those responsible will be held fully accountable and that justice will be done. >> i believe that i speak for every single american when i say that we are horrified over these events and that we stand united with the people and the police department in dallas. >> the president was speaking from poland where he is attending a nato summit. he also called last night shootings in this is, tech related and despicable attack on law enforcement.
