9:00 am
executives to brief us on this. but let me just break down the numbers because, again, the numbers are changing. we had 5 people shot. now i'm told 10 have gunshot wounds and several others are folks went to my hospital lutheran and methodist in the area and schools are shut down. all students are in a lockdown mode. still has. this is still a very active, very unstable situation out here. back to you in a call from the time that you arrive there at the scene until now, have they continue to keep that perimeter the same? are they now expanding it as they continue to search for the they definitely expanding it because we've been pushed at least a block from when i first arrived here till now, i just just being pushed back inches. >> and as the day progresses, just wanting to keep us back. just in case there's something going on closer r there's somet
9:01 am
they just really want to keep the area clear to make sure that officers can do their jobs. and we talking about officers were talking about fbi agents are out here. the nypd state law enforcement agents are out here, everyone. yeah, they all have their hands on n here, everyone. ythi get this under control and to get that suspect in custody. again, we talked earlier, it's just really that they're looking for for this responsible for all of this. back to you guys. and you don't a second call on listening to very carefully. when you say that, you know, we saw that the huge police response there, right? fbi, nypd, joint terrorism task force. and you're and you said that while he's on yothe loose, there's a fear that he could do this again. >> we are seeing right, increased patrols in the subways not only here in new york city, but now the path trains as well in jersey city. other seems like mass transit systems are upping their that's right. well, we know that the nypd already sent in more officers into our subway
9:02 am
system just for all of the violence that we've been seeing that now that is, you know, as you can add more officers to that after this situation, all of the officers are just flooding the system the transit system to make sure that that gunman is not out there. but again, a source just said that they're fearing that he may aopened fire in another train or or close by our downtown brooklyn was in an area that they really focused on close to borough hall to just make sure that they can keep all of those folks in downtown brooklyn safe. they're asking folks, if you don't have to ktake a train, just stay out of the system. stay away from this area and just stay inside in general, regardless of where you are. >> we hear the folks out here looking for their loved ones, trying to find out where they are and hazel. you have some information on where they can call to get information on their loved ones. 3, 1, 1, is always a number to call if you and missing anyone or you want to the onlatest. don't know wha what's st.happening out here. y can always ecall 3, 1, 1, but let me just go back to the
9:03 am
numbers because right now we're hearing 10 people, at least 10 people shot and more injured. so a total of about 18 people altogether is the latest that i received. but again, that number can change as police are still looking for 2 people walked into a precinct nearby. they were injured. a man was bleeding. a woman had says smoke. i smoke i inhalation and just, you know, scared everyone in the area just nervous about what's been going on. has some folks arriving here? i think the press conference should be starting any minute because i see group of all law enforcement executives walking down to where they're getting ready to start that press conference. the hold as far as i'm concerned, is that they're really just trying to narrow everything down. give us the right information. give us the latest information. and it's difficult when there's so much coming in from the different agencies. and again, nypd, they did not have eyes on and
9:04 am
the man responsible from that particular train station because of the surveillance video. no cameras in that system. back to you thank you for your we're told that governor kathy hochul also be attending that press conference that she arriving at the scene, which may be why we're also waiting for that press conference to begin as the governor arrives there on the attack, acting attorney general of new jersey senate. they're closely monitoring. >> the situation in brooklyn and are working with new jersey state police now and other partners >> too increased security throughout the area of new jersey asking to keep law enforcement your thoughts as they work to resolve these situations. here is for everybody. nicole, stay with us because we're going to do a recap here at this noon we're going to cut away from our coverage in brooklyn and go here in the bay area and get you ready with some weather and traffic as we wait for that press conference to begin. all right. so in the meantime, we've got john trouble reyna harvey standing by with that check of the forecast and the commute. >> john, let's start with you has looking outside definitely
9:05 am
different than yesterday at this time. guys. we're looking at such great way conditions to start yesterday, which we certainly needed. >> traded it in for some cool sunshine this morning. golden gate bridge, marin county looks beautiful there in the distance. we are going to see another breezy day, but not as windy as yesterday. so good news there. winds gusting as high as 20 to 30 miles per hour. see that blew up around eureka, getting some more snowfall closer to the oregon border. not so much here in the bay area. we're staying dry today, but behind that cooler air mass that swept through yesterday, bringing us the rain and snow. now we just have the dry cold conditions, 40's and now starting to see some 50's hayward, oakland, san mateo, each right at 50 degrees. some 40's across the north bay as well as down into dublin and even san francisco later on today. daytime highs only in the 50's staying dry and sunny today. we do have rain just around the corner which will kick into gear tomorrow night into thursday. but all of more about that. still to come, reyna dry roadways that helping us. yeah, that is helping us. but
9:06 am
if you are taking bar, we do have a major bar delay to tell you about. >> this is on the sf line in the sfl mill rate, daly, city and east bay directions because of police activity on the track. we're hearing reports that somebody may be walking on the track and i just called bar in. they're going to get back to me about that. but again, it just sounds like some i could be on the bart tracks right now. and that's why they have that bar delay. if you're on the sf line, that's in the sfo. millbrae daly, city and east bay directions right now. >> we're also really busy on our roadways are high with his 17 minute drive. >> from the maze into the city right now to that fremont street exit. let's check on the san mateo bridge. we had an earlier issue along 1, 1, a car fire. that's clear. we're up to 30 minutes now. we're down to 18 minutes. so things are going down there. richmond center fell bridge. you can see things are happening here. busy traffic is pretty much at a standstill about 43 minutes as you're traveling from the tolls to one o one right now. not what we do see going on over here. southbound 1 one
9:07 am
north of san pedro. we've had an accident along one. 0 one here. so issues here. also along the richmond center fell bridge. you're trying travel across the south bay. looks like we're seeing some improvement. 36 minutes as you're traveling from 85 in to menlo park. we have that early vehicle fires. so you're still seeing some delays along one. 0, one, as you're traveling through san mateo darya. james, back to you. >> thank you very much. rain at 9, 0, 7 is the time. back to our breaking news story this morning. we are moments away from a press conference in new york after a shooter opened fire on a subway train in brooklyn at about 5.26, hour time this morning. right? it makes you wonder about mass transit here. this man was described as >> looks like a construction worker had a vest on and a bag and then went in and waited to open fire until he was inside that train. so it does make people concerned about public transit might make you wonder if our public transit, whether its part, the airport buses are doing anything specifically in response to this this morning. let's go to
9:08 am
coma. kron four's will tran standing by at the bart station there with i think some new information will. >> here's what you need to know if you rely on public transportation like bart were at the cola station. the good news is you don't have anything to worry about. and that's according to the bart police chief. he actually sent out information this morning saying that he reached out to federal authorities, transit systems. they monitor each other. so he is fully aware of what's happening in new york. he says right now there is no credible threat to california. now, it doesn't mean there could not be copycats. but in the meantime, it looks like it's safe. you can see people looking at the bart platform. they're getting their tickets and then getting up the escalator. going to the trains, not a problem. i did see officers come and go from this location and it was actually safe. just a few moments ago, even safer. i should say the reason being they had to come here to pick
9:09 am
up the money from the tickets. so they had extra security at this location for that in the meantime, bart police chief, they did say that they will be relying on you. the bart rider to let them know anything of suspicious activity and they will pounce on that. plus, look at that camera right there. they have about 4,000 cameras throughout the bart system. they will look at those cameras just to see what's going on. some people are aware of what's going on in new york city. most are not. but bart is not trying to apple a 5 people's nerves. but those who are aware of it so they don't have extra police officers walking around here just to make people a little bit fearful. but again, they are monitoring the situation. the good news is they say there is no credible threat to california at this time. and yes, park police officers if they're not already on the platforms, they are patrolling the area. >> back to all right. thanks a lot. we'll for the update here. let's go back there to new york. and we do want to
9:10 am
mention that by all accounts, the investigation so far is leading to a single gunman who acted alone. they just don't know the motive for this shooting and they they know how he pulled it off because he went in wearing a construction vest carrying a bag. but when the doors closed in that rain, that's when he set up some type of a smoke device and opened fire. nobody could get out of the trains at that time. there's lot of movement in there looks like a crowd of officials just came out of the building power per presumably they were being briefed and everybody is coordinating with their messaging is going to be looks like they're making their way now. >> to the location where the press conference is set to take place. in fact, we could switch to that press conference shot. i think it's getting under way when we listen in. he's you know, he's just heading to soundtrack. now we see everybody, all the dignitaries arriving behind him. and at some point, the wall basically take turns making statements about where the investigation stands from their perspective and i believe we'll probably hear first from the governor who
9:11 am
just arrived on scene not too long ago. and we expect that that will be how this press conference gets under way. let's take a listen. >> so from the very minute this incident occurred, the mayor and i have been on the phone monitoring the situation. con still we work with all of our agencies. the fdny, nypd. >> am all of the agencies who have worked really hard together and we continue to throw all of the city's resources as at this. at this situation. we've made all of the resources available and we'll work with the office of emergency management for any additional needs. i'm going to ask the police commissioner key to speak to you and give you an update on on the events of today. thank you. good afternoon.

9:26 am
condition. >> and that that they range in ages from teenagers to middle aged, all ethnicities. this by all accounts was just a random, a guy that was a shooting people at random just aiming to shoot as many people as he could after setting off a smoke grenade so that nobody could see anything. they were all trapped in a subway car. and then as the train station and they pulled into the station, the doors open and the gunman got away people quickly rushed to help each other. a couple of doctors on another car that ran to help people who had inside the train somewhere outside on the platform. blood everywhere. there was smoke everywhere from that smoke bomb and just, you know, new yorkers are reeling this morning. and while it appears the victims themselves were shot at random, the shooting itself appears to be plan. clearly clearly planned. the gunman had all the equipment he needed to protect himself. >> from the smoke grenade, which he had packed with him in through on to the train to
9:27 am
confuse and disorient the passengers on board. he had the firearm with him. he had what appears to be in the latest update at a press conference, a green construction vest and a gray hoodie on at the time and in the smoke and confusion in the wake of the shooting, he apparently escaped the subway station perhaps disappeared ooking for that person. this morning. we heard at the press conference they will have another update, but they did not give us a timeframe on when that would be and when they might have a suspect they might have a suspect description, why hide your skin if dupixent has your moderate-to-severe eczema, or atopic dermatitis under control? hide my skin? not me. because dupixent targets a root cause of eczema, it helps heal your skin from within, keeping you one step ahead of it.

9:30 am
>> 9.29, we continue our coverage of the brooklyn subway shooting. you can see it's still an active crime scene and an active search for the gunman this morning. we've been dipping into coverage from our sister station wpi acts all morning long. let's see if we can take a listen in and see what they're saying at the and in officers to safely evacuate those students. i mean, i'm sure there are young children who are are, although maybe are out of tre loop about what's happening outside the school. but parents that are just so desperate to get their children reach a point. this weather this afternoon or later this evening where the officers will go into safely, out the folks that are still in lockdown right now. >> yeah, i think you know, it's. with respect to themstaes as time progresses weekend we move more than ball away from
9:31 am
circumstance. we're not concerned as the day goes on. what about to the chase and being chased into a building? i think what you'll see is a large deployment of officers around those and just ensuring that is just an orderly transition that to get children to leave. >> you don't want to have too big of an impact you don't want to take it like it's an evacuation. but you want to do to have reunification process with the parents. >> what can take years, you know, in an orderly and, you know, calm manner and in reality, by the end of the day, there should be a little bit more information that the department will have be going. you know, that this so that all of that forensics right you you know, the gas mask in the it may be fingerprints and things that he may have touched. >> said in may be a good idea as to identification that just not being released yet. >> yeah, i handle on that
9:32 am
fact. yeah. you know, it's out there. you don't. if you heard nicole johnson's reporting earlier that there were there was a lack of surveillance cameras in this specific subway station. police commissioner would not comment on that saying it's under investigation at sthis time. but without that surveillance video with in the actual subway system. how does that hinder the ability to find the individual or in the direction that may have gone. >> well, he did. respect to the video system, whether it was working or not. let's let's assume that it's not working is to preliminary reports are accurate. it was and it's not working. you do have the video of, you know, the one individual that that you guys will play in the before gets off what appears to be riding in the car in front of the calm with the with shooting took place comes out of the car and saw video taping and i'm sure there others that was there that had so point
9:33 am
data will be collected and start to be analyzed put together. and then if the suspect sleeve, let's say the steps and goes up on to the streets, then you have all of the video capability fro those locations. so while it would have been great to have, know, additional video on the platform. it will slow things down a little bit, but it's not a show stopper that once he it's the street. those cameras, one of the debt would have been beneficial either way and still have other video that they could utilize. >> yes, so while we see still a great deal of police presence there at the the perimeter, we're told from our reporters on the ground is at this hour. there you telling reporters to step back even further, but there's so much going on behind the scenes. and besides what we're seeing here right outside the immediate area practice what one police plaza must be buzzing at this hour. checking out all surveillance cameras.
9:34 am
>> you have the you have that. all of that video has to be captured from all of those different buildings that you have any of the street video that the nypd would on the streets. that video is being captured. you got it and you basically what you're doing as you sort of have a direction of flight. you told that the person may be exiting discerned stairwell him on street. >> sot looking at that and you need so looking at, ok, what is the next video there? picks him up and moves into the next location. and so all of that is it's a little time consuming. but there as we discussed their leader is a lot of technology expedite that process for us. >> well, they start south. stand going to continue to get your expertise. thank you for your insight. really analyzing and helping us really understand how all of this works out. but we do have a team of reporters on the ground right now covering this
9:35 am
for us. every step of the way. one of them being james for update there from wpi exo. they've been live on the scene with reporters and they've been talking to witnesses and they're releasing their information online as well. people talking about how it was. >> panic, you know, when the train pulled into the station because the gunman, people were trapped in that car, they couldn't get out of that subway car when he opened fire. they couldn't see anything because he had ignited a smoke device. and then as soon as those doors open, everybody came rushing out. who couldn't those who had been shot? many were still stuck on the floor of the train and had to be tended to by other fellow passengers. we'll have more coverage on the latest details coming out of brooklyn to as it comes as comes out. >> minute by minute. so stay tune. in the meantime, we've got john reyna standing by with a check of weather and traffic here is as you're getting out on your day and john was looking like outside is definitely looking a lot clearer than yesterday was at this point. lots of sunshine out there from this vantage. >> a scene from citrix hour giving you a look at the golden gate bridge. we are in

the midst of quite the cool down, though, may be sunnier than yesterday. but we're just going to be at we're going to be just as cold as yesterday. was highs really only reaching into the 50's, even with all that sunshine. we have a look ahead at future cast shows you these clear skies that stay with us through the day. if you need to get something done this week, today is really the best day to get it done. tomorrow is not going to be bad either, but you'll start to see an increasing cloud cover midday. and then tomorrow evening, showers begin for the north bay dropping into the rest of the bay area come thursday morning thursday. our next opportunity for rainfall here and the big winners of this next system will be the north bay santa rosa. this next system providing you're around a half an inch of rainfall, less than a 10th of an inch for the rest of us. we see another system after that to follow it up towards friday night into saturday. the totals of these 2 together, santa rosa could see around an inch of it. most of us across the bay around a quarter of an inch of rainfall by the finish of the week. so great to see another couple systems working their way through. we certainly do need all of it today. still going
9:37 am
to be breezy, but not as much so as yesterday, 20 to 30 mile per hour winds across the bay and temperatures today will be in the 50's, at least for most of us. the conquered in antioch, some of the spots on this map that will rise into the low 60's. as for hayward, oakland in fremont, a cool 58, especially when you factor in the windchill today tomorrow, thursday, much like one another except for the fact that we will be seeing rainfall returning thursday. temperatures right around the same, a little more mild into the weekend. return of showers friday night into saturday morning. just in time for easter sunday drying out and warming for some of us back into the 70's rain. john, thank you for that, ok? so we do have a major bar delay. >> still on the sf line. but the good news is barr is now restoring service on the sf line. there was someone who was on the track and thankfully, bart police were able to safely remove that person. so this is still in the sfo. millbrae daly, city and east bay directions. but

9:49 am
>> he just quietly nobody said he said anything. he just set off this smoke device and then started shooting, just shot people at random from teenagers to, you know, elderly, a variety of people were shot. many of them some hit in the legs. one woman is in the back. wounded by shrapnel from bullet and people described it as fire work. so it sounds like there are a lot of pops and rapid signet succession. i still don't know what kind of gun it was. >> and this is just, you know, the latest in a number of acts of violence that we've seen on the new york subway system here in recent days. governor hochul was talking about that when she was at the podium at the press conference earlier saying that this is something that has to end and soon they faced a a spate of, you know, high profile in recent months. high-profile incidents across the subway system, the most shocking back in january, which has a bay area tie that was back when, you former bear as it was pushed on to the tracks by someone in a subway
9:50 am
station making headlines coast to coast. and, you know, there's been a call for increased police presence on the subway system since then and unclear if there was police on the train at some point in one of the cars or at that station at the time. this all happened. but obviously that's all going to be part of the evaluation in the aftermath of what happened this morning. and we do know that there are a couple of doctors on another train car that immediately got off and started tending to. >> the wounded who are in the train car next to them and witness accounts say that, you know, the people in the car where it happened, they couldn't get into any other train car that the doors were locked on express train as it was heading through the tunnel to the next station. so they had to wait in that smoky, you atmosphere, they couldn't breathe. but the gunman at a gas mask on so that as soon as the doors open, he took off and everybody else was left left to fend for themselves. so we'll look for another update at some point today the investigators on scene. they promised one, though they wouldn't commit to a specific time. so we'll just have to keep it tuned to kron 4 for

9:54 am
and the gunman got away. and all we know about the gunman is this that he is described as a male? >> average height, maybe a little heavier, build one, 70 to one 80 pounds, but was seen by the witnesses wearing a green construction vest with a gray hoodie, but also was wearing a gas mask and carrying a construction duffel bag, sort of and even alarm anybody because he didn't put that on until they were in the tunnel. the doors were shot. >> and then he pulled this canister out of the bag, set off a smoke bomb started shooting and nobody had reason to think. well, this looks odd. you know, at first 2 things went sideways really quickly. and i guess in the chaos with the smoke and people running in all directions, once the train got to the 36, a train station, 36 street chain station that he was able to escape and blend into the crowd. so they're looking for the person this morning actually have a section >> of that area of brooklyn court and office. there street to street alley to alley looking there. also contacting the businesses nearby to see
9:55 am
if perhaps they've got security footage that captured this person walking away that we're looking at atm machines, which constantly record the motions outside and to see if they can't capture this person with those hopeful pieces of evidence they could track the course that this person took the direction he went and eventually maybe find them. we'll have to wait and see and what they really want to know when they catch him is the motive, of course, and why he would just shoot all of these people. >> that were just on their way to work and school. it was like it was 08:30am, in the morning. new york time. and there's a high school right across the street from the specific stop. so, you know, a lot of kids on board. there are descriptions of i heard a mother said she had her 3 year-old with her and she didn't know was going on. she was in the next train and everybody started running. there are other passengers who were on the platform waiting for that train when, you know, they saw everybody tumbling out and and panicked and heading for the exits. their descriptions about hiding behind the chairs because the train was crowded enough with about 40 or 50 people on that specific train car or the
9:56 am
doors were closure can go from car to car and it was pretty crowded. so people were holding on to the straps. so they were standing and another guy described how he and all elderly woman were hiding under a seat because they heard the pop pop pop. everyone describes the kind of rapid succession almost like they thought it was fireworks. but it was so dark. they didn't know what was going on and then suddenly when the doors open people spilled out, they could see the blood. they could pc people limping some who couldn't get up out. and people just started helping each other. those that weren't running for their lives and of the people that were injured again, 16 in total, like mentioned, 5 were are being treated for gunshot wounds. the other injuries range, you and everything you can imagine when there's a mass chaos, people running bumps, scrapes, people fell down. people hit their heads. >> smoke inhalation from that. a smoke canister that was set off. so they're all being treated. but the one silver lining is and we heard this from the press conference, everybody that's being treated right now is expected to survive. nobody is in, you know, a critical state that
9:57 am
they're worried that they're going to die. and that's one of the news we can show. pretty amazing considering they were all confined in trapped in this subway car. >> when the gunman opened fire. so it is amazing that no one was killed and that's the good news out of this. there's going to be a lot more news coming and we'll follow it here on kron. 4, whether we're on the air, you can go to kron on which is 24 7. you can also go to kron 4 dot com. we'll be posting any new information the minute it to rise in our sun room on those platforms to stay with us for that. in the meantime, we'll say goodbye for now. we'll see tomorrow.
