6:00 pm
schools, also the headquarters for an independent study program. began pus is located on fontaine street near five etienne keller. police say six people were injured in the shooting. two of the victims are in the hospital with life threatening injuries. two of them are expected to be released soon with non life threatening injuries. another victim has already been released. now, officers say the campus was quickly swept and deemed to be safe. that happened a little bit after three o'clock this afternoon and at this point tonight no arrests have been made. we do begin with ktvu is greg lee, who has been at the scene since soon after those first reports of shots being fired, greg good evening. we've moved up to right outside the king s states campus where the shooting occurred, where sort of an eerie calm has fallen over this campus. as this investigation continues, i'll step out of the way you can see this is a much smaller law enforcement presence than when we arrived this afternoon around 1 32 o'clock when swat officers , officers from all over the bay area swarmed to this school to
6:01 pm
react quickly to reports of the shooting here. you can see just a few officers remain as investigators are combing through this campus to figure out what led up to that shooting that injured six people here and we heard from law enforcement about 4 30 about an hour and a half ago. here's what the deputy chief said about this shooting. anytime there's a shooting community. it's a complete tragedy. but as a parent, i completely understand the fear. the emotion, the panic. and shootings are occurring at our schools. with their young children. completely and wholly unacceptable. we spent this entire afternoon on fontaine avenue, as parents were arriving , trying to figure out any information. we also watched as classroom after classroom were evacuated, with students walking orderly and quickly off of this campus that houses so many schools in those students.
6:02 pm
different forms of emotion, some more very calm somewhere crying. some were terrified. as you can imagine. we want to play you some sound as officers were making their way clearing this campus. like we said. does anybody? did anybody see the shooter? did anybody hear the shooting? you know anything about the shooting was like seven shots. he was like, pop, pop, pop. come on, come on, come back over there. keep your hands up. leave your right, leave your bags. frantic moments is, officers went classroom to classroom with guns drawn, trying to gather as much information as they could, while assuring that students were safe and they can minimize any threat that might have been on campus. you probably just saw some cell phone video we received from apparent who was here waiting to hear about the status of her seventh grade child. her child is waiting. hiding underneath a table with her other classmates , a teacher was going to lock the door barricades or close all
6:03 pm
the windows and turn off the lights. we've been talking all afternoon about how, unfortunately in the reality that we are in these students and teachers and administrators at schools here in oakland, across california and the entire country. practice these drills in the event of an active shooter, they know what to do they know how to respond, as does law enforcement. now, that leaves certainly a lot of frightened and worried parents that we're waiting to hear about the status of their children as they went through that reunification side, as well as lining this street looking for any answers. here's what some of them told us. i got a phone call from my kid's mother. then you can hear the gunshots going off as she was speaking to me. she was crying. um i know it's three schools and one didn't have too much information. but i just dashed over here as soon as i could. what's going through your head man. i was about to arrest the police because they wouldn't i was right there first in line. they wouldn't let me through. and i asked him what it was your daughter. you know what i'm
6:04 pm
saying? but you know i respected them and they said everything was calm. police on my daughter's side, so that made me feel a little better. scare. i was thinking the worst so i'm still shaking little nervous on campus when this happened outside the school. did you hear the gunshots? just here? like shooting? i didn't see i didn't think to look around. i just turn around to see the school. and i just hear like somebody was shooting and they closed the door and that only nobody get in. you can imagine a lot of angst and fear from these parents that we're here looking for their children looking to hear what happened, looking for any sort of answers as to what had occurred here. we should add that just down the street from us, maybe half a block from this campus, there is a montessori school with children from ages. 0 to 4, and we also saw those parents rushing to pick up their little ones to get them to
6:05 pm
safety and in their arms and obviously we understand no children were injured in the shooting today. six adults but certainly a community that has been severely impacted by gun violence here in oakland over the last week and a half and while no students may have been physically harmed, certainly the emotional and mental impact is playing a role. we've seen pastors from the police department and allied agencies arriving to meet with teachers to meet with staff to meet with students and parents. if they are here, just trying to walk them through a very difficult time. that certainly is not going to go away anytime soon, guys. yeah just a traumatic day for everyone involved, greg. we're just curious if you heard anything about the victims, six adults injured today. the relationship the connection to the school. do we know anything about those people? julie what we heard from that brief news conference from oakland pd is that they do believe that those six adults are affiliated with this school or the schools in some way. how they are affiliated is not known at this
6:06 pm
point, as well as unknown about if the shooter or shooters are connected to this school campus in any way, but obviously that will be part of their investigation. i can tell you just anecdotally as we've spoken to some witnesses and parents. some parents said they knew security guards were on campus. this as we know usc does not have school resource officers, but there were security officers on campus, so we're unsure if they were involved at all. but certainly we heard from students that those security officers were working to secure classrooms and then working to get students to safety. appreciate the clarification right there. greg lee live tonight in oakland. and thank you for the coverage today, greg. just a short time ago, governor newsom did issue a statement on that shooting. he put it out on twitter, saying today shooting at an oakland school was a horrifying acts of violence that has grown too familiar yet again. our kids were in the crossfire. this cannot continue. gun violence has taken too much from our communities. mayor libby schaaf released a statement also on
6:07 pm
twitter, saying in part today's gun violence shocks the soul. our schools are sanctuaries for our children, the unbridled access to firearms in our country is inexcusable. the victims in the shooting were taken to highland hospital and eden medical center for treatment. we heard from the ceo of alameda health system just a little more than an hour ago. henry lee continues our live team coverage with that part of the story, henry. good evening. how in hospital. good evening to you, mike. all the six shooting victims have ash school complex . three were indeed taken here at highland hospital in oakland, all adults and from the administration. we have heard that all those three adults, two are in critical but stable condition, a third described as being stable. also expected to be ok. at this point, we don't know as you mentioned the relationship. of these three adults to the school, their ages. their generous about what we do know that they are being treated here is the local trauma center staff here. the doctors, nurses all too well versed on handling gunshot. which is many
6:08 pm
, many years. police lauding the efforts of the medical staff here of highland, but what we do know i can't off the six shooting victims. three were taken here. all adults in critical but stable. third is expected to be okay. we did hear from james jackson, the ceo of the alameda health system, which is the parent company of highland. he says he is saddened by this, as in oakland resident here's what he had to say. this is a problem in 2021 2022. we've seen almost a doubling of the violent crimes victims that we're seeing here at our facility, so something has changed. i'm a son of oakland. i grew up in oakland. this is not the oakland that i grew up in. one. and earlier today this afternoon, highly we saw oakland police, both uniformed and plainclothes detectives from the criminal investigation division here outside the hospital. taking those there is certainly effort to talk to the victim's
6:09 pm
if and when they are medically cleared ongoing investigation, oakland police will be working with their law enforcement partners, including at francisco , which tweeted that they will be supporting oakland police in this effort again. a lot of guns have been seized by oakland police in recent months, but they say again, tragically, there's still too many more weapons that are out there. that is the legs from highland hospital. henry lee reporting live in oakland. back to you guys. all right, henry. thank you for that unified school district spokesman jon sasaki said oakland schools are safe and condemned today's violence. we want these to be oasis for our kids. these are safe places . this kind of thing does not happen in our schools. it's you know, we you know, obviously there was something that happened earlier in the year and another one of our schools, but in the six years i've been here. we've had very, very few incidents like this. and so i want everybody to understand that this is a community issue that we need to come together to solve, sasaki said. there will be counselors at the schools on fontaine street for any student
6:10 pm
or teacher who needs someone to talk to. we also heard from the oakland education association president keith brown, he said, in part, quote we have been through this just a few weeks ago and we can't wait any longer to come together to invest in. real solutions. educators are committed to doing whatever it takes to keep our schools safe. we have major concerns over the resources that are readily available to support the needs of our students. our schools should be safe havens for students free from the fear of gun violence. and parents with students on campus were told to meet their children at mountain boulevard and fontaine street. and that is where our team coverage continues tonight with ktvu s brooks jarocz brooks there's a real sense of calm and relief very different from a few hours ago when parents were frantically arriving at st tough birds behind me, that is the spot where there were dozens of children just waiting to get picked up and be reunited with their parents. imagine getting that call on your cell phone. a
6:11 pm
robocall that informs you that there has been an incident at school and you need to not go to school. but come to this location to see if your child is okay. many parents described that panic the fear on the highway of trying to get here to this spot to be reunited with their children. here's how one parent describes it for our children safety and thinking, maybe i should take her out of school. and possibly get her home trained because, um, just overall fear of you know the kids and their safety. we've seen so many incidents violent incidents involving guns across the city of oakland for it to happen at a school again. what do you make of it? it's sad. it's sad. and i also like, um there has to be something done about it. you know, people need to be held accountable. it's not okay. these are children. what would you like to see? done anything that comes to mind more
6:12 pm
security at the schools. more security at the schools and just us safer routine for the kids. that feeling is shared by many parents i spoke with, you know in oakland, many of the school resource officers or police officers. they've all been taken out of the schools and several city council members i spoke with say they are now going to begin active discussions to see if they need to be re implemented and have that discussion with parents and community groups and that sort of thing. but many parents that i spoke with still say they're not sure when they want to send their kids back to school. i asked lauren taylor city council member about the increasing violence we've seen across oakland and get another school shooting in the city. listen to what he had to say. guns were on our school campuses where our babies are supposed to be protected, and that is out of control. we need to do more to protect the lives of our kids,
6:13 pm
and that means bringing the resources that are necessary, keeping the guns off the street. so as you can imagine, this is going to be one of those long discussions where they're going to talk about funding. they're going to talk about police officer safety and what can be done not only at school but also in neighborhoods and homes. they spoke with a couple of community groups that say it really has to start in the community where people can start meeting one another again, talking with each other and making sure that guns are not in the hands of kids or people that shouldn't have them. just going through. you can't even imagine as parents what something like this would be like. it's just really, really scary. and brooks. of course, all of this comes today on a really violent week and a half in oakland. there were nine people shot and killed in just the past 10 days. have you heard anything out there tonight as the oakland police and authorities are working to track
6:14 pm
down who did this today if there was one shooter or multiple shooters. we haven't had the opportunity to talk to police. we do know that they have said in the press conference that there is at least one shooter, but i can tell you from parents i've met here. sometimes it's what they don't say. you see it in their eye, whether it's tears or just that relief when they make contact with their child, the hugs the embracing. the feeling of oh, he or she is okay . i mean that we saw time and time again and then when i come up to them and try to chat with them, it's sort of this sense of sadness and anger that they say yet again in our community. this is happening. you can see it in that one woman's face he spoke to she did the concern that she has in just dropping her child off on campus. that she may have to homeschool from here on out, um yeah. you feel voices? we shouldn't be experiencing that as parents. alright, brooks jarocz parents feel that
6:15 pm

6:19 pm
pretty consistent at this pace right now. there hasn't been too much damage from what i can see again in my specific area. there have been few aluminum signs falling down from some of the buildings just across the way from me. you can see a few cars are on the road. there are few and far between. but there are some people some people who are braving the roads, but it's not recommended for evacuations. um it's a bit too late to evacuate . the governor of florida has said it's too dangerous to do so . so for those people who didn't evacuate they should hunker down. back to you guys a minimum . it's going to be a very strong category four. that's going to rank as one of the top five hurricanes to ever hit the florida peninsula. i'm sorry, guys. can you repeat that?
6:20 pm
ashley, we are just looking at the pictures where you are. it's really windy. you can hear the wind kind of howling behind you. you said obviously, tampa was supposed to obviously take almost a direct hit last night, but it the storm the hurricane went below. it went to the south to the east there and just kind of missed tampa so like dodged a bullet. does it look like you said there are a few cars, but for the most part, the town is completely deserted and businesses boarded up. oh yeah, absolutely. businesses have boarded up the only business i know of in walking distance that i've seen is one hotel, but they're also boarded up as well. many um, within walking distance in this downtown area are evacuated as well. so not many people here did look out as you mentioned, not getting that direct hit, but it's looking like it's heading more inland towards the orlando area, so that's something for them to look out for as well. all right, ashleigh soriano in tampa for us tonight. stay safe out there, ashleigh. thank you. chief
6:21 pm

6:22 pm
historic, essentially, and this is the problem. you probably never have another hurricane ian, right? because they're gonna retire the name on this thing. this is a massive event, and it's still going on. it has recently been dropped from a category three right now down to a category two and that will drop quickly to one and probably quickly to a tropical storm. but not before it has completely devastated the coastline, the east, the west coast and now central florida and will move up towards the carolinas. as you can see, here and again now it's a rain event in his mic pointed out, and i actually just saw that i don't know if it's a real picture. but you know shark on the freeway. you're seeing snakes every because right? the water floods. these rodents are animals or anything. have they have to go somewhere? and so that everything just gets real messy. it gets really complex down there at this point, but right now that we've got it at a category two by thursday morning should be category one and then down to a, um tropical storm which is still a big deal, because it's going to drop a lot of rain. there's so many points to this story. i'm just getting
6:23 pm
