good morning to you. there is a little more traffic. it's a little jam on some of those lanes if you are driving to san francisco. this is about the time we get a little bit of a backup. it's not that long. there is a backup if you want to wait. by 8:00 it is gone. we will see what happens. it is 6:02. let's go back to the headlines. happening today, a news conference will share an update with the latest on what we know. >> reporter: good morning, pam. we don't know what updates the sheriff's office will share with us. we know that the press conference is scheduled for 2:00 today. we will have all the details then. we know that the fbi is now
6:03 am
involved in this investigation. the santa cruz sheriff's office says the suspect, steven carrillo, shot and killed sergeant damon gutzwiller on saturday afternoon. steven carrillo is an active- duty sergeant on the air force base. it is being looked into whether or not he is tied to a shooting at the federal building on the 29th. a security guard was killed and one was injured. in a statement, the fbi says, quote, we are working with the sheriff's department to determine a possible motive and/or links to other crimes committed in the bay area to include the shooting of the officers in oakland. as for what happened saturday, the sheriff's office says that 1:30 p.m., deputies were called out to ben lomond to check out a suspicious man. the caller said there were guns and bomb making devices inside according to the sheriff. the beauties found the van and followed it to a home. that's when they were allegedly attacked with gunfire and explosives. he tried to get away and steal a car. he was eventually shot and

6:08 am
the answer is yes. >> ilhan omar was also there to protest. she told demonstrators that she fully supports dismantling the city's police department. some say first responders should be mental health providers, social workers and victim advocates. professionals focus on treating problems rather than making arrests. they say by taking money away from police department budgets, they can reinvest that money into social services for mental health, domestic violence and homelessness. that money can also be used to fund schools, hospitals, housing and food in underserved communities. our time is 6:08. police say a man drove a car into the crowd of protesters.
