Every day it's something new

Television news wouldn't be possible without the incredible technology we use every day.  But there are still days when the technology falls a tad short of what we need to put material on the air, and Monday was one of those days.

It all begins with a fairly large grass fire, threatening people and homes, in the hills above Sonora.  We got the assignment to head there at about 1 or so, and that's already leading to potential problems.  Sonora is in the hills, with other hills potentially blocking our live truck  microwave signals to Walnut Grove, so we have to find a very high spot to feed tape, and it's getting late.

We find the fire scene (and a grumpy sheriffs deputy who's not aware we can go pretty much wheverever we choose when we cover fires---as long as we don't get in the way of fire crews doing their work), and quickly get the pictures and sound we need for our story.  Now the interesting part.

Stockton police arrest 2, search for 1 in connection to stabbing death

STOCKTON, CA - Stockton police arrested two people in connection to a stabbing death outside the Waterfront Warehouse in Stockton Friday night.

According to Lt. Jim Pickens of Stockton Police Department, the 26-year-old man suffered fatal stab wounds to the torso.

Police said the argument, related to Crypts and Bloods gangs, began inside a nearby club then spilled into the street.

A woman was also stabbed in the hand during the incident, Pickens said.

Dorjan Lyndell Daniels, 23, from Fontana and Djuane Deandre Lewis Munly, 26, from Rancho Cordova were arrested for murder, assault with a deadly weapon and gang enhancement.

Police are still searching for Marcus Daniel McCliman, from Loma Linda. McCliman is described as a Hispanic man about 5'9" weighing about 200 pounds.

Pickens believes this incident is unrelated to Thursday night's shooting at the same location.

Surveillance video shows more suspects in Stockton shooting

Police spokeswoman Rosanne Clark said the two men police detained shortly after the shooting were not the ones firing weapons in the videos.

The videos also show a different story then information police initially gave to media Thursday afternoon, and that more people were involved.

"It was very busy in the restaurant and we want the people responsible," Clark said.

The surveillance videos, taken from three camera angles, shows three men walk to the back patio of Nena's Restaurant at the Waterfront Warehouse on Webber Avenue.

Every day it's something new

When we're assigned court cases, the first question from photographers; are cameras allowed in?  Some county court systems, like San Joaquin County, have a good record for letting cameras into courtrooms, to record part of the proceedings.  Some county court systems, like Stanislaus County, aren't nearly as cooperative.  So it was definitely NEW today when Stanislaus County let our camera in for a court hearing.  Just our luck, the defendant in that case didn't show for court after all---there was nothing to videotape.
