this taking place right around the time when the bars were closing and this is why there were crowds all across the streets when the gunfire gap. this entire area was closed off for a day during the investigation. now we know as of now that the police have said six people died in this incident. three women, three men. all of them adults. they've also recovered a stolen handgun from the scene and they've also identified that there were various or multiple shooters during the incident. the manhunt continues throughout the day as we wait for the victims, the deadly victims of this incident to be identified. police have also asked for the help of the public. they're asking for any witnesses that were here to submit any information, and of course, videos that could help them with the investigation. some videos have been uploaded to social media, showing a fight that police acknowledge appears to have happened right before the gunshot fire began. now, in those videos you can
hear at least 45 seconds of endless gunfire, while people were running through these streets. police continue with the investigation, looking again for any suspect or suspects, now that they know that there were multiple shooters at the scene. >> thank you. our coverage of this tragic shooting continues not only here on air but online. we are posting updates as we learn more information about this investigation. just head to nbcbayarea.com. just in, alameda county deputies say they are investigating what they describe as a very small homicide -- home made, i should say, explosive device that was outside the courthouse in oakland. this was at seventh street not too far from jefferson park. deputies believe it was brought into a building by a community member connected to a civil lawsuit. the sheriff's office says the scene is safe and there are no further threats to anyone in
that area. back here in the bay area, police are now saying two of the four men shot on the san francisco play ground have died. that shooting happened yesterday a little before 5:00 p.m. near the alice hand isler's play ground in the ingleside neighborhood. the other two victims did not suffer life-threatening injuries. police have not made any arrests. happening now, stanford nurses in san jose are taking part in a strike as they demand fair contracts. they are asking for a pay increase, mental health support and changes to their time-off policy. the union recommending those herring workers say both sides still have disagreements following 30 negotiation sessions. >> they don't seem to recognize what is going on with us and the hospitals, that we are tired. that we have been working hard through this whole entire pandemic. that they got some crazy
proposals to make our medical benefits more expensive and they don't want us to have time off any more than we do. that is so ridiculous. >> in a statement, a spokesperson with stanford health care says in part, quote, to date, hospitals have offered proposals that would provide nurses with market-leading wages and further our commitment to enhanced nurse staffing. workplace safety and wellness. it adds that it is looking forward to resuming negotiations with the union representing the nurses today. happening today, a group of angry bay area mothers will make their voices heard. this was with one graphic new billboard going up in the heart of san francisco. the billboard is the creation of the group mothers against drug deaths and they're hoping that this will spur change in the city. cierra johnson is live for us in the city. this billboard, it is going up in a busy area just blocks from the tenderloin. >> reporter: good morning, yeah.
that's exactly right. the goal is to have as many eyes on the billboard as possible. to do that they're putting in at geary and stockton, pretty close to the tenderloin but really overlooking union square there in the heart of town. so take a look at this video. this is what you can expect to see on the billboard that some are calling it controversial. it reads, famous the world over for our brains, beauty, and now dirt cheap fentanyl. they are spending $35,000 for it to remain up on that billboard the entire month. the group says they are hoping to get the city to shut down open fentanyl dealing and the tolerance toward drug use as well as the open sale of drugs. >> our greatest concern is that people are going to come to the city. there's feces, dirty needles, people laying out on the streets completely out of it from using drugs and they have open wounds on them. they have foil in their hands,
leftover fentanyl on it. children can get ahold of that. >> today's insulation of the billboard comes after san francisco mayor london breed let that 90-day state of emergency in the tenderloin expire last month. that state of emergency allowed for more police in the area as well as more services to address the drug problem. i did have the chance to speak to one of the organizers over social media. she said they're hoping the billboard is up by 2:00 this afternoon. she said they're holding a press conference around that same area of that billboard's installation. we're hoping to hear from them later today. they're also hoping this is just the first of many billboards. they want to go international, letting people know what is going on here on the streets of san francisco. a story i'm sure we'll get a lot of traction from on social media. it already has. we're live in san francisco, cierra johnson, live for today in the bay. >> thank you. happening now, the mayor of antioch is making an
announcement surrounding police department staffing in the wake of ongoing investigation. here's a look at that news conference underway right now. the fbi and contra costa county district attorney's office jointly looking into potential criminal activities by officers in both the antioch and pittsburg police departments. the specifics of that investigation still under wraps right now but you can watch that news conference on our website. nbcbayarea.com. of course, we will have more coverage coming up for you tonight on nbc bay area news at 5:00. all right. time to take a look outside. san jose looking a little hazy out there. do you know what? a lot of people are not just talking about today's weather. they're talking about all week. it is up and down. >> yeah. and this is the day to enjoy. with the cooler weather, a lot of us kind of like that, especially for spring. as we go into the next few days, we'll be heating up. look at our overall picture. here's part of why it is a little cooler today. you can see, there's some rain not too far away from us.
and unfortunately, we won't get in on any of the wet weather but we are seeing some clouds and we're feeling the gusty winds into the afternoon. we're looking at winds gusting at about 20 to 25 miles per hour. maybe even a little bit more breezy for parts of the north bay as our winds pick up to about 25 miles per hour later on this afternoon. calming down tonight, but then we are also looking at a slight warming trend going into tomorrow. so today we're only reaching into the upper 60s for antioch. still, those gusty winds coming through the delta and san francisco headed for 64 degrees. 68 today in novato. by the end of the weak, people in degrees, if you can believe it. we'll talk about when and where. that's coming up in the full micro climate forecast. >> thank you. and happening now, we are moving you forward this midday as much of the bay area tech workers are returning to the office. today, google launching its hybrid work model. nbc bay area's bob redell
