newly released surveillance video of cassidy. you see the top left corner of your screen, he is walking between two buildings and vta rail yard. this is the middle of the rail yard in the middle of him firing rounds, 39 of them, according to the sheriff, from three different semi automatic hand guns. bodies were spread between two buildings and cassidy knew who he was looking for according to the sheriff. we now know cassidy had been on law enforcement radar before when he was stopped by customs and border protection back in 2016. federal authorities say he had writings in notebooks about how he hated working for vta. they found books on subjects of terrorism and manifestos. >> this guy worked for vta for sometime, so he knows all the nooks and cranies where police may look but not suspect. that's where they've got to be careful.
he was certainly aware that vta was in close proximity to the sheriffs department. he knew that. he worked there for years. he knew it was going to happen quick. >> you mentioned investigators believe cassidy targeted his victims. did they give any indication as to why? >> reporter: len, no. no indication as to why. but the sheriff did tell us he went up to people saying "i am going to kill you" and went up to others and said i'm not. in one person he said "i am not going to kill you" and he turned the gun and started to kill others. we'll keep following and asking the questions throughout the investigation. >> i can't even imagine the survivors' guilt related to that. thanks for the insight. thousands gathered outside of san jose city hall last night to remember the nine vta employees killed in wednesday's rampage. the crowd heard from loved
ones, friends, co-workers sharing stories and memories of the people they lost. >> families of victims stood together united in their loss and heartache. >> ♪ i once was lost ... >> stories of final moments of hero system were brought to light including how singh called co-workers to tell them to hide and how megia reportedly told a co-worker she could hide in his office before he was ultimately shot and killed. >> god took my best friend too soon and i am wishing i can give him one last hug and tell him how much i love you. >> never leave home without giving your loved one a kiss good-bye. that was the last i got. >> a memorial for the victims outside city hall has grown in size with signs, flowers,

zip code. we are excited about that. >> reporter: we talked to a family a moment ago, this is the first time they're traveling. they said the year has been really hard, they've lost family members. being able to take their family out of town, it's way to leave the last year, year and a half behind them and to start to move forward getting closer to normal. i can completely understand that. the interesting thing about the travelers is oakland is coming back to life faster than sfo or san jose airport. all these people, they've clearly got somewhere to go and are very glad to be going there. >> that escape is a game changer. thank you. to the coronavirus, the mass vaccination hub at moscone center is set to close today after completing scheduled second dose shots. demand is dropping off signaling a shift in focus for the vaccine campaign. a series of family day vaccination events will be held this weekend. the site is open today in bay
