7:00 am
well, good morning to you. welcome to "mornings on 2." i'm dave clark. >> i'm tori campbell. it's monday, january 3rd. we begin with overnight news from marin county. police in novato are still on the scene of a horrifying double shooting. it happened early this morning
7:01 am
outside a safeway supermarket. ktvu's kraig debro joins us live with more on the story. >> reporter: good morning,er t ory. it's been about seven hours since the shooting happened. when you first get here, you can see the two bullet holes in the back right of that toyota corolla there. but if you look up the corner on the driver's side, there is a hole there, too. that would explain how the two were caught. police hope forensic evidence they are gathering right now will help -- with the help of a sophisticated camera will lead them to the shooters. we just shot this video, minutes ago, it shows a discarded police of clothing being pulled from the victim's car. it happened at 12:10 this morning. now, i've spoken to a safeway
7:02 am
employee about what happened. the a white toyota corolla coming into the parking lot and parking and then another vehicle following that car in. the witness said he heard someone yell, get out of the car twice and then heard several shots. >> i was just going to get gas. novato is not like this. it's pretty alarming. >> i come to safeway a lot. >> reporter: you come here -- >> i come here for coffee every morning before work. >> reporter: on the videotape you can see flashes of light from behind the vehicle. but you can't hear the shots or if anyone said anything before the shots were fired. none of the officers on the scene say they know where the victims were taken. both survived the shooting. police say one of them is 26 years old latino and the other, 23 years old, and he's white.
7:03 am
this is a rare event here in novato. here, the guy using the sophisticated forensic camera, he says he also writes parking tickets during the day, and the bags police are using to collect evidence are not specialized evidence bags but brown paper bags they inside the safeway store. a tow truck is on the scene and we're sewnly speculating about the tow -- only speculating about the tow truck but typically they will tow the vehicle to an evidence lot where they can keep it and sit on it. and they are hosing down the scene, in case there's blood and they want to clean that up. we've called police. they haven't called us back. they said they will. i'm gonna call them back and see if i can get any further
7:04 am
information. back to you. >> thank you, kraig. the red cross is helping a family. their house caught on fire. a mother was up watching television, and she smelled smoke and called 911. >> i got my kids. one of my kids didn't have on shoes but i would rather have them be safe than anything goes. >> fire officials say there was a problem with the wiring in the attic and that's where the fire started. the home does have working smoke detectors but they did not go off because of the fire's location. fire officials say the home has about 7 $75,000 worth of -- about $75,000 worth of damage. in about four hours from n ow, jerry brown will be sworn in as governor. this will be his third time in
7:05 am
the governor's office. claudine wong has more. >> reporter: good morning, dave. this is the memorial auditorium right behind me where there should be some security sweeps coming up very soon here. we don't expect the speech and wearing -- and swearing in this morning to take very long as jerry brown takes his office as governor. this is his third time. in about 90 minutes we're gonna do a security sweep for the crush of media that's already arrived here outside the auditorium to cover brown a inauguration -- brown's inauguration. when we talk about brown's inauguration, he's unique. we can talk about the other two. he started in '75, declaring an era of limits. four years later, he criticized people who wanted to spend more and have more governor spending. in '75, he talked about u nemployment being too high. we're in double digits now. he talked about cutting the
7:06 am
governor's office budget. you have significant challenges now. the climate alone has been contentious in sacramento. term limits have created a resolving door here -- revolving door here. and now you have the budget deficit to 2012. >> we have the largest deficit by far of any state and we have very little options on how to solve the problem. at this point, california has not turned the corner yet. the economic crisis. i don't think there's any time needed here to be celebrating. >> reporter: so the question is what tone will brown's speech today take? certainly everyone agrees it will be a roll-up-your-sleeps and let's get to work speech. but some say this needs to be a big picture speech, we can do i
7:07 am
t. let's give people some hope. let's look at the hard numbers. that may be saved for a week from today when we have to look at the budget for the first t ime. that's not the case for all other governors being sworn in, 26 of them. the tradition has been here not to have a big party. everyone seems to agree. no one in california is in the mood to party. they are in the mood to find some solutions. claudine wong, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. well, outgoing governor arnold schwarzenegger plans to be at brown's inauguration ceremony. when he leaves office, schwarzenegger said he will most likely hit the speech circuit and write an autobiography. arnold schwarzenegger became governor after the recall election and was reelected in 2006. if you want to autopsy the

afghanistan. lindsey graham says he's he believes such bases would ensure that afghanistan never falls back into the hands of t errorists. democratic congresswoman barbara lee of oakland released a statement saying she is appalled by the calls for permanent bases and that is -- and that it's time to bring u.s. troops back home. the u.s. navy says it will investigate the "clearly i nappropriate videos shown on the uss enterprise. the videos made back in 2006 and 2007 include gay slur, mend a nd -- men and women pretending to shower together and some lewd scenes. the videos were made by the man 0 who was second in command at the time, who is now the c aptain. a concord family is angry with outgoing governor schwarzenegger. in his final hours in office,
7:17 am
he commuted the prison sentence of es devon nunez -- es devon n unez. he's the son of fabio nunez. fred santos said "we're totally outraged. this is dirty politics cutting back room deals. i guess if you are the son of somebody important you can kill someone and get all sorts of breaks." esty ven -- >> the governor reliesed e steban's -- reduced esteban's sentence because his codefendant confessed to stabbing santos. governor schwarzenegger also reduced the prison
7:18 am

7:20 am
prompts to do so. hot mail is the world's mostly largely used e-mail service. facebook has raise the $ 500 billion from goldman sachs and a russian investment firm. that puts facebook at $ 50 billion according to the new york times. the new money will give facebook the chance to pursue a cquisitions all without being a publicly traded account. ap after the least for now. that's because the s.e.c. is reportedly looking into the trading. 7:0. well, the new year is bringing new changes for recycling and garbage collection services in san mateo county. starting today, recycling and composting carts will be picked

7:24 am
the trash has not been p icked up since christmas day for a lot of the new york residents because collection crews have been busy plowing all of the snow. only about 50% of the employees are back on garbage duty today. so it will take a while for those huge bags of trash to disappear. the other half of the garbage crews will remain on snow cleanup until the streets are color. if -- if you missed your chance to see the giants' t rophy, the trophy will be back on display at city hall today and tomorrow from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. the viewing is free you but it is on a first come, first served

7:26 am

7:27 am
there's cold air in place. that-- that low is sliding. it looks like we have a dry pattern the rest of the week. 50s for the temperatures. now,fuls you -- unless you are up farther north you might be in the upper 40s but a dry pattern and i was just d iscussing here with nelson, make the plans, tennis, w hatever. it-- it looks good about you -- if you don't mind a little fog. jean quan will be served in this morning. what she's doing now before her inauguration. >> reporter: i'm tara moriarty live along california street where you will no longer be able to catch a cable car.
