jennifer, do you have any updates? what else can you >> reporter: well, laura, we are actually waiting for an updated news conference in just a few minutes. it looks like it will be delayed a few minutes right now, so we don't have exactly updated information, but you got some really good new information that we do have that there are two, two critically injured male students that are at henry mayo hospital, which is very close by here. and then the sad news that one female student has died of her injuries. this morning, the scene was chaotic. this happened just after 8:00 a.m. you saw backpacks abandoned on picnic tables, right around the quad, which is right behind me, as students just scattered when the firing began. there were some mixed reports that the gunman had taken off and was maybe in a nearby park. ey therefgo to his home and
search that, as well. those are some of the reports that we heard from the ground, but none of them was confirmed.f the campus. what we do know is that he has been neutralized. the sheriff tweeted out early on that he was transported and was being treated at a hospital from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. word is now that he did not survive that gunshot wound. so this is all developing information and at this point, parents are just coming through here, looking for their kids. so worried, even if they've heard from their kids via text or phone call, until they are able to put their arms around their students, their children, there's a lot of fear and a lot of -- a lot of panic here on the campus this morning. laura, marcus? >> you can even see the looks on the students' faces that we were able to hear from. they just seem like they're in shock. >> reporter: yeah. and it's shooter
training at school campuses all over the country now. so they've had training, but when it's real and when you hear the gunshots and when you see the -- the destruction that those cause, you know, those high-powered weapons, it's traumatic. and even if you hear it second or third hand, there is something that is -- it's paralyzing. there's nothing you can do in that moment but try to be as small and invisible as you can. and it's not a good feeling. >> no, it's not. jennifer bjorklund, thank you so much. we are going to continue to monitor what's going on in southern california. as soon as that news conference is supposed to happen, i bring that to you live as well. >> all right. well, back here in the bay area right now, nasa aims is preparing to host vice president mike pence. he will speak to employees about returning astronauts to the moon. but as henc arrives to moffett field, he'll be met by
protesters. >> nbc bay area's kris sanchez joins us live from moffett, where the vice president will be speaking in mountain view the hour. chris? >> reporter: well, hi, there, marcus and laura. these are some of the protesters that have been waiting all morning long to greet vice president mike pence as he rolls into nasa aims. there's a chance he'll miss all of these sites. arriving shortly or perhaps has already arrived. now, outside, protesters, there are signs. they read, trump/pence must go, impeach and remove. there are also signs bearing the faces of children who died in detention facilities as well as pence's position on women's issues. mike pence and his wife arrived here at moffett field just before 7:00 l wnim were chanting more years." today, the reception is pretty different. >> just want to show our support for him and, you know, i think he's doing a good job. >> i find pence just an awful
threat to women. i am more afraid of pence than i am of trump. >> they're holding immigrants and they've stripped away legal rights. they've stripped away international norms. they're holding people indefinitely. >> reporter: now, just before noon today, the vice president will talk with about 200 nasa aims employees about returning astronauts to the moon. that's a scripted talk. during his two-day california trip, pence also met with hunng and a dinner in monterrey. both were closed to the media, but we understand tickets for those events cost anywhere from $1,000 to $35,000. our reporter last night tried to ask mike pence sincee aried about the impeachment proceedings that are underway in washington right now. we got no response, but we will keep trying and our reporting will continue tonight at 5:00 and 6:00. in mountain view, kris sanchez, nbc bay area news. >> thanks for the latest, kris. well, a break meanwhile in
the impeachment inquiry. >> scott mcgrew joins me now. >> tomorrow, the former ambassador to ukraine adds her testimony to the investigation into the president. then next week, there's a full slate of witnesses. on wednesday, we saw two longtime civil servants testify. top trump adviser, george kent, and acting u.s. ambassador to ukraine, bill taylor. in their opening statements, they said they were not there to take sides. they were there to tell the truth. now, much of what we heard were things we already knew. though cversation he says one of his staff overheard between the president and gordon sondland, talking about the president's desire that ukraine investigate joe biden's son. new this morning, the associated press says that it's talked to a second witness to overhear that phone call. now, the person who was actually on the call, gordon sondland, testifies next week under oath. and so we'll hear more about that. news of this new phone call doesn't necessarily add anything
to the accusations, as much as it just reinforces that idea that the president was pressuring ukraine by withholding that badly needed military aid, laura. >> you know, scott, we also want to help viewers, as well. if you're uncertain at all about who's playing what role in the impeachment inquiry, we have put together a who's who chart on our website. it has each person's name, photo, and how they're involved in the investigation. and we've made it easy for you to access with your phone. all you have to do is point your camera at the qr code in the bottom left or your screen and that instantly connects you to the chart. you can watch tomorrow's hearings right here on nbc bay area. nbc news will have a special an w says that he was imony arrested by b.a.r.t. police for eating a sandwich on a platform plans to file a civil lawsuit against b.a.r.t. for racial discrimination. nbc bay area sharon katsuda live for us at the pleasant hill b.a.r.t. station, where part of that confrontation with that

up through napa valley. here's a look at that hazy shot in san francisco. it's hard to see anything, because we've seen these low clouds rolling by. and in some spots, it's been mostly cloudy while we are starting to see some clearing down the peninsula as we take a live look outside in palo alto. if you're about to head out for lunch, expect it to still be like this with the sun peeking out from the high clouds moving by and temperatures in the jac. we're going to cool off, we'll be back in the upper 50s already and the rest of the evening, by 6:00. as we check out our current temperatures right now, it's warming up for the inland east bay. 65 degrees, that's better than the upper 50s we're feeling right now in palo alto and in half moon bay. we're also still in the upper 50s right now in napa, before most of us, these temperatures are matching where we were yesterday at this time. but we won't warm up much more from here. so we're going to feel some air today that's a little bit closer to normal for this time of year. only reaching up to about 64
degrees in san jose. we've had such warm weather, that we kind of forget that this is what it's supposed to be like for the middle of november. up to 67 degrees in danville and oakland reaching 58 degrees. we're at 56 for the high today in half moon bay and redwood city reaching up to about 62 degrees. some upper 50s in san francisco. and the north bay reaching up to 69 in ukiah. napa today vy the rest of the country. cold air that we've seen across it's starting to loosen its grip. it's not as cold as it was a couple of days ago, but still feeling some pretty chco ag as atlanta. and we're seeing some low 40s there. as weapon bring it back home, we've seen a lot more clouds moving in today. and that's behind the cold front that moved through late yesterday evening. well, now we are going to still see this weather sticking with us for today and tomorrow, but some changes ahead. going into the weekend, we'll start to see our winds shifting, more of a northerly wind picking up, and it's going to help us
warm up as that high pressure bil build. then going into next week, that quickly moves away, and there'll be an area of low pressure, a storm system that can slide down the coast and also bring a chance of rain for the sierra and parts of southern california, but it looks like the bay area just kind of misses out on that rain, while we will see a drop in our temperatures. so now the drought monitor has included much of california. bnormally dry and heading towat conditions if we don't catch up on our rainfall deficit. and that deficit for san jose is a little over an inch and almost 4 inches for santa rosa. it's dry through thisen warmi by conditions in time for the weekend, and i think we'll enjoy it as we're going to see at marcus? >> looks very pleasant. pretty spoiled here. coming up today, we're going to learn more about one "jeopardy!" contestant's alex trebek tribute. it's a story that went viral.
