just got the update from santa rosa place and they may have a possible suspect detained and i want to point out in the update from santa rosa police they say that the shooting happened off campus near ridgeway, wanted to make that clear, it was off campus and near ridgeway high. and look over my shoulder, and we have chp blocking off the area on ridgeway and glenn street as they continue with the scene and they tell us that a possible suspect has been detained, at least at this time. we'll bring you another update shortly. now i'll show you video when it was a much more active scene this morning. now according to santa rosa police, the information we're getting, saying the shooting happened roughly about 9:00 a.m. so at about 8:56 a shooting happened off campus near ridgway high in santa rosa and not an active shooting and a 18-year-old was shot and had
wounds to the abdomen area and is in the stable condition. when it comes to the suspect, a possible suspect may have been detained. they said the suspect fled on campus at ridgway and took him into custody near this area but still looking for the weapon. now in the past 15 minutes or so we saw someone being taken into custody but when i questioned police if that was the suspect, they would not confirm that information. now prior to all of this, when we got to the scene, i did get a chance to speak with the parent of a student at ridgway high and she was texting with her son and you could imagine how scary and he is okay but a clip of the conversation with my parent. >> did he tell you -- >> he didn't seem to know what was going on. i think the kids that are actually at school went into whatever the drill is that they do. he's under a desk and just waiting it out. he said he did see a s.w.a.t.
team run into clear the classroom but he doesn't know what is happening. >> reporter: taking you back out here live to ridgway avenue and glenn street following the shooting that took place near ridgway high. and a possible suspect was detained but police are still on the scene. obviously conducting this investigation. at least at this time it appears to be an isolated shooting. no further reports of violence on campus. there are still lockdowns in place for ridgway high near the shooting and santa rosa high and santa rosa junior college. that is all in the same area. but i do want to point this out for parents, they're saying don't call 911 if your a parent of any students at the schools and to go to the jockey club at 1350 bennett valley road east of brookwood what they are telling parents to do to check in that area but we expect another update from santa rosa police at

ukraine for an investigation into the democrats. in a text message exchange taylor asks, "are we saying security assistance and the white house meeting are conditioned on those" and the ambassador to the e.u. gordon sondland send text me. and as for lunching, all republicans must remember what they are witnessing here, a lynching. congressman billy rush of illinois wrote back, you think this impeachment is a lynching? what the hell is wrong with you? do you know how many people who look like me have been lynched by people who look like you. now senator lindsey graham was quick to jump to his defense saying what is happening to trump is indeed in his words a lynching in every sense. every sense he said. except, of course, the murder part. >> all right. thank you very much. turning now to decision 2020. decision made yesterday will allow independents in california to vote in the state democratic

it is like $28 there and back. so, yeah, it is a good idea. >> it is unclear how long an investigation would take or if drivers will eventually benefit. even though this week it may feel closer to summer than winter, some die-hards are getting ready to bring out the skies. sky tahoe is set to open this friday. workers are getting ready and building up the base. this will be the first tahoe ski resort to open for the winter season. >> the key is if they could stay open because the temperatures still kind of warm. although it is high elevation. >> high elevation. we've seen morning temperatures in the 20s so it is cool in the morning hours. but yeah, it warms up throughout the day. as we get a live look out there now in cupertino, looking across the south bay, we're going to feel summer warmth over the next several days and very dry conditions as we get ready to head out for lunch. we get a live look outside in dublin and we are seeing mostly sunny skies that will stick with
us. let's get a look at temperature trend for the rest of the day. look at these upper 80s we have here and our temperatures peaking at about 2:00 this afternoon. we're going to stay in the 80s until about sunset when we start to gradually cool off. let's go through all of our microclimates and we see at noon we're in the upper 70s to mid-80s at 2:30, dnaville at 84 degrees and also 84 in oakland, novato at 90 degrees. we know the temperatures aren't sufficient supposed to be this warm but we are not expected to break any records with san jose at 5:00 still in the low 80s and upper 80s in concord, fairfield at 87 degrees. and then into tonight, it won't be as cool as the winds start to pick up, we'll see our lows drop back into the upper 50s. into tomorrow the hotter temperatures continue. we'll have more of a north to northeasterly wind that increases to 50 to 60 miles per hour in some of the higher elevations. our winds will be peaking
tomorrow night and a red flag warning will be in effect for the elevations above 1,000 feet. and it is all because we're seeing high pressure setting up just to our west. this is giving us a northerly wind around high pressure and we have a clockwise wind flow into the next couple of daves and we see our winds blowing off shore and hot temperatures and winds gusting because there is a storm system to our north that will finally provide some relief from this heat going into the end of the weekend. so between now and then we'll have some gusty winds picking up and then we'll also see another possible wind event by the end of the weekend. as we go hour-by-hour with our wind forecast, here we are at 5:00 tomorrow morning. we see our winds coming in from the north and starting to increase for parts of the north bay. and then through the rest of the day, the higher elevations will have wind gusts but notice what is happening in the valleys. not much of a wind. at about 15 to 20 miles per hour
while we have 25 to 35-mile-per-hour winds in parts of the north bay. so that is the reason why we're seeing especially the north bay the high fire risk and any small spark will spread rapidly under these conditions as we have low humidity and this time around some hot temperatures reaching the low 90s for the next couple of days. it is still going to be warm on friday. but we are going to see our winds starting to calm down for the weekend. we have nice conditions on saturday. we're cooling off on sunday but it will also be quite gusty and we're going to warm up from the inland areas all the way to the coastline. so that is something we'll be watching over the next couple of days, laura and marcus. >> thanks, kari. coming up, an update on the shooting we've been telling you about at santa rosa high school. new information we're learning about the suspect. but first, happening now, for the fourth day teachers in chicago remain on the picket line union leadership saying the hope for a quick end for the strike are over follow a letter sent to the union from the
