[ bleep ]. [ bleep ]. >> you can hear and see the emotion. right now at 11:00, police in riot gear as conservative commentator ann coulter gets escorted into wheeler hall on the cal campus. all of this while more 1,000 protesters were pushing, shoving, and shouting. >> inside whe for about 30 minu outlining her anti-immigration stance, and as far as we know even though she's no longer on stage she's still inside. nbc bay area's terry mcsweeney
11:01 pm
is on the cal campus with the very latest. terry. >> reporter: she may be inside. outside we've still got several hundred protesters here. they're upset with ann coulter's stance on immigration. for the most part. they still don't like president trump, vice president pence. they don't like much about any of the conservative movement. it is a very, very emotional moment out here. this is nothing, though, compared to what we had earlier. take a look. [ shouting ] >> go home! go home! go home! >> reporter: seven people arre uc berkeley police. at least two people taken out of here and taken off campus in an ambulance. we don't know the extent of their injuries or the cause of
11:02 pm
their injuries. what we do know is that a number of people did not get in who had tickets. they came out here. a strangely organized event. people coming into wheeler hall had to go through a very narrow opening to get to the event. many of whom were harassed, we saw that. some were intimidated. but protesters felt they were justified because this was all an ode to racism. take a listen. >> well, i bought a ticket to the event and was pushed around and called horrible names by people who go to my school. and i went to the event as a way to peacefully protest and hear what she has to say and rd way. and clearly we can't do that. >> we don't accept immigrant bashing. we don't accept racist violence. this is berkeley. we're for the equality and dignity of minority andle and we're going to shut down these people every time they come to the bay area. >> reporter: a lot of passion out here. and a lot of police presence
11:03 pm
still. we can tell you for an absolute fact that emily was not the only one who was not able to get in even though she had a ticket. we saw some tickets taken away from people who had them. the protesters were locked arms, keeping people away. again, everybody had to go through that narrow entrance and it really wasn't working out. maybe 400 people still remain out here from well over 1,000 that were here before. of course all of this because of ann coulter. "new york times" best-selling author, fox contributor. she spoke inside. and that's where cheryl hurd is right now. cheryl. >> reporter: coulter wanted to talk to the crowd during the&a section tonight but was probably told to leave because of security reasons. like you said, the protesters, their idea was to keep people out. but a lot of them made it in anyway. >> i do agree with donald trump -- >> reporter: when political commentator ann coulter hit the stage, it only took five minutes for a protester to call her names and get escorted from the
11:04 pm
auditorium. no recording allowed for the 30-minute speech but the question and answer portion was fair game. ironically, the first question from the audience was about immigration. >> assimilate the ones already here. i do believe that anyone can become i think, i hope, anyone can become a great american. >> reporter: during coulter's speech she talked about muslims and how a muslim ban should not be considered racist. she talked about the trade war. >> i don't know why the china thing is taking so long. in oase with him he has to keep his promises. and they're never going to stop impeaching him. this is going to be five more years of this. >> reporter: president trump. she talked a lot about president trump and how people should expect him to be novice for five more years. now, protesters are still surrounding the building. we're really not sure if ann coulter is out of the building. she went in in one of these
11:05 pm
doors. we haven't seen her come out. she told us that she expected all of this and she tried to talk about the fact she didn't get a chance to give her speech two years ago. she gave a mini speech of that tonight. so she gave the people here what they wanted and the people here who came to see her enjoyed everything that she had to say. reporting live in berkeley, i'm cheryl hurd, nbc bay area news. >> all right, cheryl. stay where you are. we'll come back to you if we need, when and if ann coulter leaves wheeler hall there on the cal campus. we have more details about the deadly stack on a bart train. the man accuse of killing a passenger yesterday is scheduled to appear intomorrow. this is his photo. his name is jermaine brim. police say he left the hospital just before he committed this gruesome crime. nbc bay area's ian cull joins us now with the new information about the suspect and the victim in all of this. ian. >> reporter: yeah, raj, that's right. bart police are sath suspect walked away from san leandro

11:19 pm
biggest concern. we still have some gusty winds across the north bay mountains, 20 to about 35 miles per hour. but you can see by 1:00 in the morning things really start to calm down, especially as we hit 7:00 tomorrow morning when that red flag fire warning is expected to expire. so some good news on that front. as you begin tomorrow morning take the jacket with you. numbers are dropping lower, down to 39 for the tri-valley. 45 in the peninsula and 44 in the south bay. a mix of he s. sun and some high clouds. i think you'll need the sunglasses for the morning commute. and hey, why not, maybe some sweater weather for you tomorrow. switch up your wardrobe a little bit. it will be chilly enough here in the north bay at 43. 46 in san francisco. over to the east bay, i have you at 40. through the afternoon you get is that nice cool crisp fall weather down here across the bay area. you'll see my microclimate forecast in the cupertino, and e forecast really doesn't change much across the microclimates

11:21 pm
