5:01 am
laura garcia-cannon has the day off. this morning police are investigating an early morning home invasion right now. stephanie chuang joins us. we're hear police are now looking for the suspect who they believe is armed? >> reporter: that's right. it's unclear whether it's one or more suspects they're looking for. we're very close to san francisco university. this is where the home invasion robbery happened. police confirmed it was armed. no visible signs of breaking down the door or anything like that at 108. there were eight to ten officers here earlier. and several patrol cars both san francisco state and spd
5:02 am
responding. we did see a couple of young men, two to three. they may or may not be students as we are close to san francisco state. we have not been able to confirm that with police. the officers said the victims understandably very shaky. police couldn't say how many suspects because they said with multiple victims, there have been different accounts of what happened. officers have been here looking with flashlights and taking pictures. other than that, officers remaining pretty tight-lipped, only to say that the suspects are outstanding. live in san francisco, stephanie chuang, "today in the bay." >> i know it's early but do we know if the suspects knew the folks or what was actually taken in this armed home invasion? >> that's right, vicky.
5:03 am
it is still very early and off camera the officer wouldn't even say how many suspects there were. he was saying that the victims had different stories about what happened. he also would not say what was taken, only to say, though, i want to add that nobody was hurt in this. so that's the good part of what could have been much worse. but doesn't know if this was a targeted situation or something random, vicky, at this point. >> thank you, stephanie chuang live in san francisco. >> it is 5:03 right now. crews have spotted oil slicks in the java sea. they emphasize it is unclear whether that has anything to do with the missing flight. the airasia flight was carrying

5:06 am
question, will they be able to find someone as successful as harbaugh. he had a record of 44-19-1, led the team to three nfc title games and one super bowl. >> i feel great about what we accomplished. i appreciate the fans, the people of the bay area, the 49ers faithful and the players, coaches, staff, friends for life. >> it's expected that jim harbaugh will take a head coaching job at a university.
