moments before the shooting according to police joseph pastrana stepped in to break things up and was shot suffering a non-life threatening injury district official safe astronas bravery may have saved a student's life somebody took a bullet for our students and was doing his job and unfortunately something bad happened while he was at work classes were held today with additional guards and staff members on campus in case anything were to happen counselors were also brought in to help the kids so far. there's no word of any arrests in this incident. nothing in san francisco is projected at an old-time low documents obtained by the abc 7 news i-team shed light on the reality of the crisis and why the worst is yet to come in fact my team reporter stephanie. sierra is crunching the numbers for you and she is here with the latest step. yes, dad police staffing in san francisco is already at time low, but the numbers on paper don't reflect the reality on the
6:06 pm
streets tonight. we're breaking down the data to show you the evolution and which neighborhoods are suffering because of it. without this from drug deals to car break-ins. anger on the streets. there's a lot to police in san francisco the problem. we don't have enough. but we already knew that the new reality the problem is worse than we thought we've become so broke. we got to pick ourselves up dust ourselves off and you know get back into the game tracy mcrae is the president of the san francisco police officers association for months. the department has reported. they've been more than 500 officers short, but in three months come december 31st. 300 people could walk out the door that's on top of cops. we're short just right now if that happens the current shortage would jump to more than 800 officers to be fully staffed. san francisco should have more than 2,100 officers. here's the evolution in 2020
6:07 pm
there were 1911 current sworn officers in september of 2021 that dropped to 1830 in april of 2022 that dropped again to 1723 and today that number sits at a new low 1651 full duty sworn officers. that's that's a fail a fail in more ways than one because the reality of boots on the ground is smaller than we think even though we currently have around 1600 full duty sworn officers chief bill scott told abc 7 news last month on average. there are only around 300 officers working patrol city wide each day. it definitely is a strange to keep up with the calls for service. we can't have numbers like this documents obtained by the abc 7 news. i team show huge disparities within the call volume across all sfpd's 10 district stations from late june to late august. for example. hundred and nine officers were assigned to the tenderloin during these months more than
6:08 pm
any other district. whereas the park district a significantly larger area only had 47 officers where you think criminals are going to head but the triage of officers is leaving other areas at higher risk abc 7's data analysis found during these mutts southern central northern and the mission district each had a higher percentage of life-threatening emergency calls than the tenderloin, but were assigned fewer officers. now another example of the disparity is in the richmond district from late june to late august 53 officers were assigned to respond to more than 3,300 life-threatening calls in the richmond mainly residential neighborhood, but from midnight to 6 am the chief confirmed their often down to only two squad cars, which of course dan is heavily impacting response times. oh absolutely can understand why there's such a shortage there step. thank you a small victory for cal fire crews battling california's largest wildfire the mosquito fire. they have saved the community of

6:34 pm
oversaw the extension in its earlier days. now that phase i is done, the tension is now on phase ii, which would add four stations. >> this connection is highly anticipated by the entire region. it will be that last piece that fills the gap to have a connection to ring around the bay. bart will connect to caltrain. that will allow people to come from the east bay into silicon valley. zach: the project aims to serve 46,000 regular trips in 2025 and limit congestion. construction of previous bart stations, for those who remember, we are told this new phase will be a lot less disruptive. >> the new technology that will bring bart to san jose is with a single bore tunneling versus a two twin bore tunnel.

larry: it has been a tumultuous summer for travel as americans broke free of covid restraints and took to the skies. will flying get easier this fall? 7 on your side's michael finney is in the newsroom. michael: millions of travelers this summer had to deal with flight delays and cancellations on top of high prices. now airfares are falling. that is good. travel is smoother. that is good. but will the good times last? >> i have flown a lot of times in my life. i never had an experience like that. michael: christina just left a peaceful yoga retreat in the countryside of portugal. she was filled with a sense of calm and serenity. until -- she tried to fly home. >> i don't really know what
6:40 pm
caused such a horrible thing. michael: she was instantly immersed in air travel chaos that began when her flight out of lisbon was delayed three hours, then sat on the tarmac in toronto for two hours, causing her to miss her connecting flight home to sonoma. air canada locked its gate and ticket agents went home. christina slept in an airport windowsill. >> i used some of my technique to stay calm during the whole deal on the flight home. i did not want to lose all that good mojo. she was one of millions of passengers who pay high airfares only to face rampant flight delays and cancellations during the peak days of summer travel. as it happens, the toronto airport had the worst global on-time record this summer, with 51% of flights delayed. >> things got quite bad at the beginning of the summer. it was not just your imagination. more than one in four flights were delayed and 3% of flights
6:41 pm
nationwide were canceled. that is significantly higher than the historical averages. i think it underscores what a difficult time it was for many folks traveling. michael: scott of scott's cheap travel says airlines are scribbling to ramp up after the pandemic lull. airfares are also dropping. prices have spiked by 37% over summer, now down by 40% or more. >> the general rule of thumb is flights taken after labor day tend to be about 50% cheaper than flights taken before labor day. michael: those prices won't last. he says holiday airfares will shoot right back up to summertime rates. >> if you wait to book those holiday winter flights until november, chances are fares will not be cheap, they will be very expensive. michael: so where do we stand today? airlines have dropped more than
6:42 pm
50,000 flights this fall, so the system won't be stretched quite so thin. however, it can also mean it could be harder for you to find the flight that you need. one tip, travel overseas at thanksgiving is usually a bargain while domestic flights during that time are really, really expensive. dan: good idea. while you are here, i want to pass this along. governor newsom signed legislation today inspired by a series of 7 on your side reports that michael did about the unregulated dog training industry. the first law ever to regulate dog trainers requires them to disclose any criminal convictions or civil judgments related to their business. that could potentially include a case like this one in bakersfield. a 22-year-old is charged with 14 counts of felony cruelty to animals. authorities say they found nearly a dozen dead dogs on the dog trainer's properties. her preliminary hearing is set for october 7.
6:43 pm
she has pled not guilty. this is one of nearly a half dozen cases highlighted by 7 on your side in the last several years. ama: remember last week's heatwave? i blocked it out. by next week we are looking at possible rain. sandhya shows you how fast things are changing in the seven day forecast, next. don't forget disney plus specials continue through the month. new subscribers to the surface can get their first month for $1.99 monday. new releases are coming this month. disney is
