4:00 pm
that's little person, uh, and the bullet when the other one went inside. i don't know where it hit. from ktvu. fox two news. this is the four and welcome to the four. i'm jana katsuyama and i'm andre. senior in for alex. heather will join me for the five o'clock edition of ktvu news now. well a 12 year old boy is recovering after being shot early this morning by catalytic converter thieves in oakland, ktvu crime reporter henry lee spoke to that boy today and his family and henry, how is he doing? well, andre. thankfully, he'll be okay. but the shooting is an unfortunate example of how violent crime and property crime sometime go hand in hand. the guy started shooting it and it bullet hit my leg 12 year old fernando melendez is recovering at home in oakland, just hours after he was shot in the foot by a catalytic converter thief. i heard him but that it hurt it a little bit, not how much it happened at about three friday morning
4:01 pm
near the corner of rawson and brookdale in oakland's maxwell park, neighborhood residents surveillance camera captured footage of two cars pulling up to the families honda accord soon they lift the car up to get at the catalytic converter, fernando's father heard the noise got up and threw a chair. in iraq over spence to drive stop them. in response, one of the thieves opened fire through the fence. it's grainy, but in the video, you can see muzzle flashes that slow where they hit the bullets. oh yes, that's the fresh one, and the bullet when the other one went inside, i don't know where it hit. the father wasn't hit, but fernando was family friend says a bullet went through an open doorway where he was standing in into the boy's right foot. the kid was right behind him kind of seeing what was going on and unfortunately got him. i was sleeping, and i like it woke me up pop, pop pop pop, and then squeal. i heard like squeal car taking off the surveillance video shows both cars peeling away. fernando's father took him to the hospital. oakland police responded. they recovered evidence, including
4:02 pm
this bullet and the jack that would be thieves left behind his mother, yesica. chavez speaking through an interpreter, says her son was strong right after getting shot and that she was the one who needed comforting, however, now that he's back from the hospital, um he has drama. he's asking why he was they shot him. he's only again 12 years old. we have a little boy to who's five so we just couldn't believe it. when we heard that he was shot is just heartbreaking to hear this, uh, now the fan he tells me this was the second time in two weeks that their honda was the target of catalytic converter thieves the first time they were scared off. it's not clear if they are the same ones involved in this morning shooting reporting live in the newsroom. henry lee ktvu fox studios close call for that family, henry. thank you, governor gavin newsom sign two executive orders today officially rescinding the state shelter in place and the tiered covid-19 reopening plan. the system, which ends on tuesday, has been in place for nine months. that blueprint will no longer exist next tuesday.
4:03 pm
pursuant to these two executive orders one winding things down another lifting and rescinding that blueprint, which has been in effect just over 40 weeks here in the state of california, and again that could not happen had it not been for all of your hard work, your resilience. we are also hearing that cal osha is expected to make an announcement today to align workplace mask. deals with cdc guidance and we will bring that to you as soon as we get it, governor newsom also took part in the second drawing for california's vaccine lottery. 15 lucky winners were selected to win $50,000 each. number 47 alameda county alameda right over there towards the coast. it's already got a yellow ball on it. the announcement did not identify the winners by name but by the counties where they live. the bay area had five winners, one from alameda county, as you just heard there,
4:04 pm
one from san mateo county, one from san francisco and two from santa clara county. ktvu san ruben joins us live now with how the state has been getting the word out to the winners and also a warning about scammers and. yeah if you're one of today's lucky winners, you may have already received a call, however, scammers have already started making calls to and so experts want you to be really careful with your personal information. was it real? that was what 17 year old nancy gutierrez wanted to know when the phone rang last week. the message that she won $50,000 through the state's vax for the win lottery. they called my mom and my mom came in and was like nancy, you don't believe it, and i was like we didn't believe it at the beginning, but i think after a few more phone calls, we were like, okay, i think this might be true. it was she was one of the lucky ones. i think it's confirmed jealous, and some 15 winners were announced last week. another 15 today. but today we are picking 15 $50,000
4:05 pm
winners and i'm so excited the newly chosen two winners from santa clara county and one each from san francisco, san mateo and alameda counties, but as the checks go out, the scammers apparently come out. the state says they've been notified of several so far. you should be skeptical when you get a call like that, experts say, use caution. try calling back the institution they claim to be phoning from. and remember, don't give out your social security number or bank information. they ask for personal information. that should be a red flag if they ask you to click a link. that should be a red flag. your your best bet is to again verify who's there. tony, another of the winners took some convincing to i got the call last friday and fresh. i thought it was a joke, and i ignored it. officials say. don't do that. for the new winners. notification began immediately by phone with a live caller from a department of public health number, and officials say vax for the wind is working in california. 13%
4:06 pm
more people got vaccines this week than last. this program seems to have been effective in encouraging more people to get vaccinated. 40 million vaccines administered so far 15.9 million more than any other state. and governor gavin newsom hopes that number goes up before the next lottery drawing on tuesday. encourage people that maybe on the fence take advantage of getting vaccinated so they can take advantage of the opportunity to win a million a half dollars. so that big drawing is on tuesday, 10 winners will be chosen each of them receiving instead of $50,000.1 million dollars each, and state officials do expect there will be more people going to get those shots between now and then. janna okay, good advice there on the scams. and thanks so much. or just days from fully reopening just days from fully reopening. san francisco has hit of vaccination milestone. mayor london breed announced today that 80% of
4:07 pm
eligible san franciscans have received at least one dose of the covid-19 vaccine and nearly 70% of fully vaccinated. san francisco is the first major city in the country to achieve this milestone. when the south bay four out of santa clara's five mass vaccination sites are closing in the next few weeks, county health officials say the large sites are no longer needed because nearly 80% of eligible county residents are now vaccinated. the mass sites closing are the ones that levi stadium, the county service center in san jose gilroy high school and the mountain view community center. vaccines are still being given out at the senate, clara county fairgrounds, pop up mobile sites, pharmacies and healthcare clinics. well statewide more than 39 million doses of covid-19 vaccine have now been administered. according to the latest data. there are now an average of 146th shots a day being given out here in california, and that is more than 25,000 above the daily average at the beginning of the week, and more than 54% of californians are now fully vaccinated and 11% more have received at least one
4:08 pm
dose. joining me now is dr peterson hung, an infectious disease specialist at ucsf doctor. thank you so much for joining us in providing your insight. now the improving vaccination rates are encouraging. in your opinion, does the closing, though these large vaccination sites makes sense makes sense. at this point, it makes complete sense. andre, i think we're shifting from, uh, one size fits all approach, um to an individual and personalized approach because the folks left to vaccinate come from a variety of different walks of life and very different reasons for not getting the vaccine. so now there is a shift to mobile and pop up sites. are you concerned that the urgency to get the vaccine might not be there? or do you see this as a natural progression? now i think it's a natural progression. we have already addressed the low hanging fruit when the vaccine was like getting a gucci bag or the next best, uh, you know, ironic food. now it's actually
4:09 pm
very hard work to get the rest of. the population vaccinated people may have mistrust people, maybe on the fence. i think that would be the easiest group to address. people may not have the time or the convenience and maybe worried about costs. i think those groups would probably need another approach. that's not just, you know, lotteries, but like you said, pop up clinics we can schedules 24 hour. walgreens these kinds of things so like in san francisco, right now, we just mentioned there at 80% vaccination. in santa clara county, nearly 80% so reading their herd immunity now in those areas just to confirm i think we're ready there, andre the reason why is because you add vaccine immunity to natural immunity? people have been infected in winter search who haven't been vaccinated yet. they have some immunity. we don't know how long that will last. that's why we're encouraging everyone to get a vaccination. and as you bring up that topic, let's talk about
4:10 pm
this. the delta variant, how concerned. are you about its spread? i'm very, very concerned for those who have not been vaccinated, and that's because it's even more transmissible than the u. k e 117 or alpha very and, um and not only that it's potentially some vaccine evading, so we know that you need two shots of the vaccine. if you thinking fights in madona before you can really approach 80% of, uh or 90% of immunity after one does. it's only about 30% against the delta virant. now it's accounting for what 60% of u k cases. okay, so if the delta very were to show up in a place like san francisco or santa clara county, and we're we have 80% or near 80% in santa clara county's case vaccinated, this will not proliferate is what you're saying. yes it probably will bounce off right now, but again because we have that group of folks who have
4:11 pm
immunity from natural infection who have have been vaccinated as that immunity wins, and we don't know how long that will last week. the vaccine immunity is much more reliable. uh that will set up. you know, a target, probably around winter time for some variance to take, you know, spread of foot if we don't sort of, like, move on it. so you're saying we should also have our air to the ground about possible other variants coming up later this year? definitely we have to be flexible. we have to look at the data. i think it's appropriate what we're doing now. uh but just, you know, particularly again for unvaccinated folks, um and especially in other parts of the country. i think we are a little bit more blessed here in the bay area, but again that may not last forever. something to think about. i'm glad you mentioned that we you know we are getting over things now, but we also have to look to the future because this virus definitely commuted as we see with the delta delta very into this virus. alright, doctor, peter chin hung. an infectious disease specialist. see ucsf
4:12 pm

4:15 pm
13 points ahead of yesterday. also the nasdaq ended higher with again of 49 points and the s and p set another record at the close today, finishing the day eight points higher than yesterday's record. speaking of. money the price of many consumer products is increasing partly as a result of the pandemic. as ktvu candese charles explains more expensive groceries is also having an impact on local food banks. we are serving a lot of people seven days a week despite the state opening up soon, the food bank of contra costa and solano county continues to serve 100,000 more people each month than prior to the pandemic. that's 270,000 bay area residents a month. the latest inflation data shows food prices are up and will likely continue to ride so for this food bank is important now more than ever to shop smart so they can meet demand. we are buying in bulk whereby at the lowest prices that we can source. consumer prices rose 5%
4:16 pm
last month, the biggest up in more than a decade. i look at a £40 case of chicken went from about $40 to $130 in two weeks. that's food cost is you can't deal with whether it's food banks or restaurants. every aspect of the food industry is struggling to deal with the lingering problems from the coronavirus for some food banks. cost increases are stemming from a surgeon. man so not only does food cost more, but more people are also in need of assistance. obviously a lot of us are getting back to life like pre pandemic a little bit little by little, but for a lot of folks that still means food insecurity friday morning, the alameda county food bank said that even moderate income households are facing food insecurity. they're concerned cost increases could worsen the issue. unfortunately with the surge in food prices comes a surge in the clothing airlines and arlo industries inflate is impacting food banks in more ways than one fuel costs, you
4:17 pm
know, transportation costs that trickles down to every piece of everyone's business, including the nonprofit in space for food banks, so we're just always trying to maximize the dollars that we have donated to us to make sure that we're translating that into as much food as we possibly can. so if you can donate to food banks now is definitely a good time to do so now despite inflation concerns, there is some good news you guys. biden administration says that this will not likely be something that continues. and the federal reserve says that they will not be included increasing interest rates for now reporting and conquered. i'm candese charles ktvu fox students, house speaker nancy pelosi is in san francisco today as part of house democrats national effort called care economy week of action this morning speaker pelosi was at the mission neighborhood centers new head start youth center. she talked about the importance of investing resources in caregiving. work continues in washington on the american jobs plan. an american families plan. pelosi says. investing in care for children and families can

4:19 pm
of parenthood. the vice president says the american rescue plan offers solutions for working families to make child care more accessible and affordable. this is the point here, affordability and accessibility. and i believe this is some of the most important work we can do. you know, we say we care about families. well then let's get in there on the details of what helps and makes families actually work and function as a family. the biden administration says 39 million families will benefit from the $2 trillion coronavirus relief package, which was passed earlier this year. irs payments to those families are set to begin next month. the lanes of interstate 80 enrichment are back open after being blocked for hours today by an overturned big rig. now you can see from sky fox, and it flipped on its side and spill its large load of logs on the eastbound lanes. now this is that fitzgerald driving pinole near the richmond parkway and.

4:21 pm
eureka, and it moves even a little bit farther south than that. in fact, let's get in a little bit closer. see how far south it is coming. just north of ukiah, and it will remain there. in fact, it will probably take a hike a little bit farther north, getting into the weekend for us. the onshore breezes with us fairfield reporting wind gusts to 30 mph, oakland sustained 17 nevado gusting to 20 so the onshore breeze and another breezy day around the bay area temperatures are warmer, though up by seven degrees in nevado around the bay up by foreign oakland in the east bay up by four livermore half moon bay up by four half moon bay right now. 63 degrees we have mid sixties reported in san francisco. you go inland. it's a nice 1 77 conquered in the north based 72 right now over areas of santa rosa. temperatures are right about average a little bit below, even with the warm up this afternoon, if you're going out to the coliseum to see the aids play today a partly cloudy skies 65 degrees expected at game time. and the westerly breezed about 15 mph getting

4:25 pm
and i'm wondering what did he tell you about the significance of this month for him? yeah well, i mean, we talked about a lot of things for the issue is including infrastructure and vaccine. but he perhaps got the most personal when talking about pride, and i asked him what does this month mean to him? take a look. congratulations buddha judge is one of america's first openly gay cabinet secretaries now serving during lgbtq pride month. what does pride mean to you? well, right now i'm thinking about the journey we've been on, you know, not that long ago. somebody who was out would have been unimaginable as a cabinet officer, or, you know, even as a federal employee. we got a long way to go. but what pride means to me is that there there really is a chance to stand up for each other in the name of compassion in the name of equality and make life better and my being here is one small

seven summit in england as foxes madeline rivera tells us covid-19 is at the top of the list of issues the group is
4:30 pm
expected to tackle a night with royal family capping off the first meeting of g seven members on friday. the gathering of leaders of the world's wealthiest democracies in cornwall, marking a return to elbow bump diplomacy after last year's summit was canceled because of covid-19 the global health emergency. has shown us what a truly borderless crisis looks like to avoid a repeat. the g seven is rolling out a global vaccination plan they and guess countries will give more than one billion covid-19 vaccines around the world with the united states leading the charge, providing 500 million doses. we need to make sure that. we now allow our economies to recover the donation. also seen as a way to curb china and russia's political influence. both are sending vaccines abroad even as pressure intensifies for china to increase its transparency as
4:31 pm
global leaders push to investigate the origins of covid-19 when your own intel starts leaking out. something is afoot at the end of the president's trip comes a one on one meeting with russian president vladimir putin. it'll take place as the country deals with a rise in russian based cyber attacks. have targeted colonial pipeline and meat producer jbs, but the president did not share details. mr president, what's your message to putin? so you have to deliver it despite the president's vague response, his national security advisor says the uptick in ransomware attacks will 100% be appointed discussion when the president and putin meet on wednesday. washington mother rivera, fox news. in washington. an internal investigation is underway into revelations that the justice department seized phone data from east bay congressman eric swalwell and southern california representative adam schiff. both congressmen say apple notified them last month that their metadata was subpoenaed
4:32 pm
and turned over to the justice department in 2018 family members. phone data was also seized, the trump administration reportedly was trying to track down the source of alleged leaks to the media. both swallow and ships are on the house intelligence committee, which was investigating former president trump's ties to russia at the time. in the end, the data did not connect shift or small well to those leaks. in a statement, congressman swalwell said, quote like many of the world's most despicable dictator's former president, trump showed an utter disdain for our democracy and the rule of law. this kind of conduct is unacceptable, but unfortunately on brand for a president, who has repeatedly shown he would cast aside our constitution for his own personal gain and joining us now to talk more about this as congresswoman jackie speier. thank you so much for joining us today. great to be with you. so, congresswoman, first of all, you've been a long time member of the house intelligence committee as well and i'm wondering, is there any legal precedent or justification that
4:33 pm
you know of here for such subpoenas. zero now, if in fact there was evidence of criminal conduct, and that was taken to the grand jury, that would then requests a subpoena. that would be one thing, but it appears from what little we know at this point that it was purely a fishing expedition. and there is and the constitution the protection of separation of powers, the co equal branches of government. and what is called the speech and debate clause, which gives members of congress the right to do fact finding and investigate. in addition to doing the speech and debate that goes on on the house floor, so. there are protections protections put in place for a reason. our founding fathers didn't want the executive to be able to intimidate members from doing their job or have a hostile judiciary that would come after
4:34 pm
them. it appears here that they were getting getting direction from former president trump to spy on. members of the house intelligence committee because we were in the process of doing an investigation to determine whether or not the president should be impeached. this smacks of the of the dirty tricks that richard nixon engaged in as well. and congresswoman. one thing that i think is disturbing to some people is that in this case, apple shared records of 12 people, and it wasn't just the congress members but their families as well. what is your reaction to that? well, you know, there's new, her information coming out that suggests that it was much more than that. it was over 70 email, uh, sites and 36 phone numbers, and now there's word coming out that that request was also made of microsoft. and maybe google. we don't know that perfect. so this was a net that was drawn.
4:35 pm
very large and it really appears that it was, uh one in which they were also looking for absolutely anything the subpoena, it appears asked for all data dating back to the inception of that email address, or that telephone number very could have been before it could have been before the members or even members of congress. and you represent the bay area where tech is a. big industry here. what are your thoughts in terms of any actions that congress might take or something that the companies themselves should do in order to address these issues of privacy right now? i think we have to get to the bottom. um why the justice department? what was the predicate upon which they went to a grand jury, which is secret by the way, and which then issued the
4:36 pm
subpoena. no. many times. the subpoena is requested by the justice department from a judge. judge has legal training. a grand jury does not so they won't appreciate the finer elements of the constitution as it relates to speech and debate and a separation of powers. so uh, there's so much that we don't know. and i do think this is the tip of the iceberg. i think we're going to find out that the corruption was not just in doj. it was probably in every department in the federal government in which donald trump had an interest in either scrap. watching someone's back or promoting his own businesses, and we do understand that the justice department's internal watchdog organization is now taking a close. look at this. so i imagine that will probably be returning to this topic very soon. congresswoman jackie speier. thank you so much for your time. great to be with you. former vice president mike pence is set to headline two
4:37 pm
events next month in iowa. the announcement is raising questions into whether pence is considering a run for the white house in 2024, iowa, is schedule to be the first state to vote in the 2024 presidential primary elections during his upcoming visit. pence will be the headliner of a fundraiser for iowa congresswoman or congressman rather randy fence trip. he's also expected to be the keynote speaker at the family leadership summit in des moines. the california state capitol will soon allow more visitors during the pandemic. the capital is only open to the public on days when lawmakers were in meetings or holding public hearings. but starting june 15th. capital will be open to the public, regardless of whether the legislature is in session. capacity will be limited to 500 people on the first week, but by the following week capacity will double to 1000 people today is never to be outdone like this. this is going to be the talk of until the end of time. wish come true for sacramento boy
