6:01 am
the investigation continues. the media is kept back a good 100 yards from where the shooting took place. look at the pictures from the aftermath of the shooting. 10:30 last night, oakland police and reportedly drug enforcement agents were out here involved in an operation, not commenting on that. two oakland police officers opened fire, killing one man. gravely wounding a second man. who was taken to the alameda county hospital. again in grave condition. the oakland swat team was called out. a couple of hours later, 12:30 this morning, a third suspect was found. he was hiding under a tree in the backyard of the house where the shooting took place. in the backyard of a house, where according to police a number of weapons were recovered. one weapon was recovered on the roof of the building down there on curan avenue. oakland p.d. not explaining the operation. not really even confirming that drug enforcement agents were involved in this. they do say one person is dead. one wounded. a third suspect in custody this morning. live in oakland, terry mcsweeney, abc7 news.

6:03 am
fathered by the former governor. the "new york times" reports that schwarzenegger, himself, made the $50,000 down payment for the house. the scandal not only led to schwarzenegger's resignation but may lead to other scandals. gloria allred is going to represent an actress who says she had annual trips with schwarzenegger to body build building event in ohio. u.c. students may be warned they may have higher tuition if the governor's plan doesn't pan out. the in-state tuition may climb 32% for the 2012 year. if the university system has to cut $1 billion from the budget. that increase would mean the california residents would pay nearly $14,700 in annual tuition. which doesn't even include
