there are extra police at a san francisco elementary school right now. police aren't taking any chances after a threat was made to a school last month and the person who allegedly made those threats is no longer behind bars. thank you for joining us. i'm jessica castro. san francisco police hope that those extra officers can ease parents' fears. all of this happening at rooftop elementary school in the city's twin peaks neighborhood where we find abc7 news reporter amy hollyfield with what's happening right now. >> reporter: hi, jessica. you can see there is a police car here at the entrance of rooftop elementary school, even
11:01 am
though school has started, they are still letting everyone know they are watching the entrance points of this campus. this morning before school started, you could see officers out on foot to reassure parents and kids with their presence. last week strict said an adult affiliated with the school made a threat. he was arrested but released yesterday. that's why police are here today. one mom said she has mixed emotions seeing the officers here. >> with them here there's something alarming. the police presence is alarming. without them here i could be calm but unease without the protection. i don't know how to feel right now. and that's hard because -- yeah, yes. the children need to be protected. >> reporter: the district put out a statement saying the san francisco unified school
11:02 am
district is taking this matter seriously and is working in close coordination with san francisco police department but also does not have any indication at this time that this is a credible threat. the school district is also providing extra emotional support to students and staff given the fears this incident has raised. that's all the details they would give. no one from the school or the district would talk on camera about this issue. parents say they are getting mixed signals and say it was a bit emotional dropping their kids off here today. amy hollyfield, abc7 news. sky7 was in san francisco where officials say a trespassers is dead after getting hit by cal train before 8:00 a.m. near the 22nd street station. trains stopped in both direction while investigators worked the scene. they say about 500 people on the train and no one was hurt. new developments with raiders' linebacker aldon smith.
11:03 am

11:04 am
overturned it. to make the effort stick this time, the ordinance would expand to all county properties, as you said. the santa clara county fairgrounds currently hosts two gun shows a year, netting the county around $12,000. district supervisor is proposing a gun ban ordinance that would change that. >> even though guns are banned from county buildings, they're not banned from all county property like parking lots and parks and the fairgrounds. >> reporter: he says the mass shooting in parkland, florida, spurred the idea. many constituents complained about the gun show billboards from the san jose gun show held at the fairgrounds last month. tomorrow he'll ask the board to vote in favor of having county council draft an ordinance. >> what's a little different is this would apply to all county property, not just the fairgrounds. and i believe that's how all of the surrounding counties here have been able to ban the gun shows on their property.
11:05 am
>> reporter: he says it would be several weeks before the board would vote on any proposed ordinances that would come from council. the ordinance would, of course, exclude law enforcement and other people that were authorized to carry on those properties. we did reach out to local gun shoal organizers, folks that have had gun shows at the county fairgrounds in the past. they have not returned our calls for comment. live in san jose, abc7 news. movie's biggest night is in the books and some of the biggest stars are waking up with a little extra gold. lara spencer has candid, behind the scenes moments from last night's oscars. >> and the oscar goes to -- jordan peele, "get out." >> reporter: with those words, jordan peele making history, becoming the first african-american to win best original screenplay for his much talked about thriller "get out."
