>> the fbi is now releasing personal property of the victims. specifically on the parkside of the gilroy garlic festival. for vendors, it's a little different. vendors will be contacted directly by the garlic festival association so they can obtain their items. >> those items left the festival site are now here at rucker elementary about five miles from where the shooting took place. the fbi has cataloged and tagged each item so you need to describe what you lost and fill out a short form. this center has been opened all week run by the da's office. staff have been providing counseling, daycare services and helping to process applications for financial compensation. the center will remain open through the weekend. >> thus far we've served approximately 250 of the victims and that we've served in person and over the phone. >> in charge of the fbi san francisco field division.
>> this is a live news conference in gilroy, an update from the police department. let's listen live. >> for some of the media outlets that the chief has arranged to speak with. so with that, give me a moment and we'll bring our speakers out. accompanying them will be fire chief jeff clet, rolen velasco, mayor, and a city council member maria blankly and the city administrate ker gabriel gonzales. give me a moment and i'll be right with you. >> and again, this is the news conference about to take place. they just started getting under way. they are bringing some people out who will be speaking. this is the gilroy police department. you can see a lot of folks who will be giving us an update. there's the chief walking in last right there. scott smitty. we did not have a news conference yesterday, don't believe. >> i'm not certain of that
actually. okay. >> let me introduce to you our police chef, chief scot smithee. >> thank you all again for coming today. i wanted to give you another brief update as to the status of this case and new developments. you know, we're continuing to develop leads. we're continuing to put information together. as you can imagine, the amount and volume of witnesses and things that we need to look at is very, very substantial. so this is going to be a case that's going to be worked for a very long period of time. a couple of updates. one is my initial press conference the night of the incident i had said that we had 15 victims and then we had the -- that had been shot and three victims that were fatally wounded and then the suspect who was killed in the altercation. we have located another victim that had received a slight graze
wound. so they didn't go through the process that we were aware of. they sought their own attention but they've come forward now and we're aware they were also injured. we'll update that to reflect 16 people injured rather than the 15. probably the biggest piece of information that i'm going to give out to you today and i was asked at the press conference a couple of days ago was when i would identify the names of our officers. i'm going to do that today. so there were three officers. they're all gilroy officers that were involved in the shooting. first is officer eric crier, a 23 year law enforcement veteran. the second officer involved in the shooting was officer hugo del moralee. he's a 17 year veteran. and the third officer was officer robert basweno.
he's a 13-year veteran of our agency. giving out the officers' names, i would respectfully request from the moodia sand point that you would respect their privacy. obviously, they're concerned for their families and what not as far as contact you know at their homes and what not. i would greatly appreciate if we would avoid that. i am talking with those officers. and if there comes a point where they're ready to have a discussion and do interviews regarding this, we will certainly try to facilitate that for you. the last piece of information and it's just kind of an update and weigh turn it over to the fbi because they're handling the evidence out there is we're going to talk a little bit about the evidence processing and the releasing of people's property out at the park site.
>> good afternoon. my name is john bennett. i'm the special agent in charge of fbi san francisco. and i appreciate everybody.coming out and spending a few moments with us. i'd like to first start by offering my condolences to the victims of this tragedy. it is a senseless act. and our hearts and prayers go out to the families that are impacted and affected by this. i want to talk a little bit about the fbi resources we're provide together gilroy police department. right now, we have multiple evidence response teams in from across the country. and pretty much every fbi field division has evidence response teams. when the call goes out, they start flowing in this direction. that is coordinated by our headquarters evidence response units. so we have people from virginia, people from west coast, east coast and everywhere in between helping process the scene.
we also have our victim assistance unit out here right now. and they're working with the gilroy police department and santa clara's d.a.'s office, the people involved with the victims in getting some of the personal belongings back to everybody. we have special agents that are working side by side with the officers of gilroy and santa clara to run down investigative leads, talk to and interview not only victims but run down whatever leads that are needed to be done out there. we have technical specialists exploiting digital media that has been collected throughout the investigation. those specialists are local and they're also back at quantico back at our lab. finally we have the behavioral analysis unit here. those are our profilers. we asked them to come in and take a look at everything that is being collected to give us some idea of motive, some idea of ideology. we still have not have a firm
grasp on ideology and we're working towards that. it's still very early on. putting all this together. it is a pretty massive site. beginning today, personal effects from the parkside region of the park can be picked up at the family assistance center located at rucker elementary school, the park side side of the park right now. the other side of the park is still an active crime scene. vendors are being connected by the festival association to arrange for scheduled pickups. we're trying to be respectful and understand that people's livelihood is tied to some of the booths that they have out there and we're trying to get that cleared as quickly as we can. we continue to follow leads wherever they may take us. that could be something as six as somewhere where this person was eating lunch to maybe where they were living in the past and
that could be nationally, as well we must collect and verify any information and any evidence. that is not a fast process. as i said yesterday, the fbi only knows one way of doing things and that is right. and that takes some time. we mentioned motive. we've not yet determined the ideology. if ever. we have requested a behavioral analysis unit to support us in looking at there. they are at the crime scene and they're also looking at it through the digital media with us, as well. they review raw materials from the case. they focus on motivation. what is the meaning behind certain activities certain writings we may find throughout the course of the investigation. i'm not a trained behavioral analyst. these folks are the experts and that's why we brought them in. it's another resource we can offer to the chief here. the crime scene is dropping by about 50% today. we're trying to get the vendors
back in. there are still parts of the crime scene that is very slow and methodical. we're collecting evidence and doing bullet trajectory. and we have to account for every round that came out of everybody's weapons. some of those rounds in an open environment can travel great distances. and there's a process that we have to go through in order to track those rounds and most of the time we find them. sometimes they may not be found. i think we have a pretty good handle on most of them right now. so again, this is very slow. it's going to take awhile for us to continue to go through. but we're working as quickly and as diligently as we can. and we're asking for everybody's patience and we appreciate all the accolades we're getting and support from the community. but it is the chief of police and gilroy pd that are the lead agency on this and we're here to back them up.
i think that's -- one more for you. want to finish with thanking all the our fbi agents that are working side by side. they're doing an amazing job. they are -- there is no shortage of volunteers from our office and surrounding offices that we keep bringing in. thanks to the gilroy police department including their officers who responded so quickly to neutralize this threat they really acted with tremendous courage where most people run from gunfire, that he ran towards it and that saved lives. there is no doubt. and the city and the people of gilroy for all their support has been quite amazing and very humbling. we have people bringing us drinks and making sure we're taken care of as part of the investigative team. we still are asking for the public's help. any videos or photos that people may have or may have can toured that day they feel may be of interest can be uploaded to
fbi.gov forward/gilroy. and again, i'll give you that one more time. fbi.gov/gilroy. victims who want to get their properties back can go to fbi.gov/gilroy victims. that opens a website where names and e mails and phone numbers can be in and we'll get in contact to them within a day back to the people looking for their belongings out there. we're trying to do that as quick as possible. that is very slow. we have to verify people belong to their belongings. with that, i'm going to turn it back over to you, sir. >> thank you, sir. >> thank you, mr. bennett. with that, we'd like to open this up for a few minutes for spec questions. if you would please identify who you would like to ask a question of and we'll go from there. >> yes, ma'am. >> the three officers involved, how did they feel about having their names published today or
released? >> well, i would say that all three of these officers are incredibly humble. i think they're heroes. i don't think they view themselves that way. i think they view themselves that they were just doing their job. and i don't think they're particularly excited about being in the limelight. but i certainly think ha they deserve recognition for what they did. >> agent benedict, you said you were requesting video and other information on your hot line. have you been receiving any and how has the response been? >> yeah, we received over 100 downloads at this point. our people are continuing to go through those as they come in. some of them are longer than others. but we are -- we're still taking in anything that anybody thinks is important.
>> a rough number of fbi staff have been brought in? >> roughly, we're probably pushing 100 right now with all the teams out there. and plus our local office is also supporting that. so 100 from outside of our office. >> yes, sir. >> we'll continue to stream this on our website at abc7 news.com. because this continue for a while. but the major headlines are the identification of the three officers involved in the shooting, eric crier, u go dee morale and you would think that that really helped them, their experience, basically get the shooter under control and make sure that more people were not hurt in the situation. they still don't know the motive. >> absolutely. the fbi says they're still working on this and they've brought in the behavioral phillies unit to help determine that if they can at all. the three officers, the chief
said he views them as heroes although they would just say they're doing their job. >> we're continuing to stream the news conference at abc7news.com. >> we're hearing from two young women shot at that festival and the two say they feel grateful just to be alive. >> i'm just so happy to be alive and i want to send my love to those like the romeros the salazars that don't get to say that about their family. i've seen the impact on my community and it's overwhelming. > i find it bleak and sad but i like i hope i feel a sense of general trust towards humanity because right now i don't. >> i was shot in the back running and i miraculously, it didn't hit any organs in a way that i can't heal from. it grazed my lung and went through the liver and punctured the diaphragm. the liver is the best organ.
it hes really fast. i'm going to have a bullet in my liver my whole life. >> it felt like a quick burn to me. i was running. and i felt like i got pinched or bee sting type thing. i knew i was like i remember being like i'm hit but didn't look back, i didn't stop running. > brynn ota-matthews and gabriella gaus. they also thanked the man who drove to the hospital and they still don't know who he is. both say they're very happy to be going home. >> the gilroy foundation has established a special fund for vips of sunday's shooting. we have a link on our website how to donate to the vips relief fund so he ca

housing and critic of san francisco's status quo. >> saying the housing situation is a crisis has become a cliche at this point. it is beyond crisis. >> reporter: more like a self-imposed crisis due to the city's zoning restrictions against high density house. now tristan is a victim of that. he rents the closet to alex because he needs the money. why? his father died last april and never transferred the lease. do you see where this is going? an apartment that had been $1600 a month for 40 years with rent control suddenly became $3600. and tristan found out the day of his dad's memorial. >> i believe it's the landowners most of them who charge as much as they can and squeeze pre penny out of everything that can be squeezed. >> he had the legal right to do it. was it morally right to do it? probably not. >> reporter: tristan peaed to the city. the a matter of principle he
says. >> i'm struggling to keep my head above water and i think a lot of san francisco can share that sentiment. there are more than you might imagine that hold steady jobs and live in their cars because they cannot afford to live any other way. >> reporter: so compared with that, maybe a closet featuring an elevated bed in a loft looks pretty good. >> it's really cozy. >> with a million dollar view outside a tiny window. do we dare call this is the new norm. >> what is the solution. >> more housing. > how. >> actually just building it. >> reporter: if alex steup dared to dream, what would it be? >> to make enough money to live in a home where i can have a dog and backyard for my kids to play in. >> reporter: do you think that will ever happen in san francisco? >> never. >> reporter: in san francisco, wayne freedman, abc7 news. >> wow. can you imagine living in 45 square feet. >> it's insane. >> it's $1200 a month.
