5:57 pm
5:58 pm
5:59 pm
breaking news story one person had been shot at the occupy oakland encampment this happened just before 5:00 p.m. just about one hour ago at 1410 broadway. the occupy protesters say that their own paramedics were the first to try and give attention to the victim who was shot. there is no word on his condition at this hour. we do know that it was a man, we do not know his identity. there are
6:00 pm
reports that suspect may be in custody, that has not yet been confirmed. we have not seen any sign of mayor jean quan or the police chief how jordan. we talk live with this city council president who is on the scene communicant the police about the development. the occupy protesters insisted the nine--this did not happen in the area of their tent, but it did happen at frank ogawa plaza. we have j.r. stone on scene with the latest. >>reporter: you can see the yellow tape out here and officers in the distance, we were talking with a witness and he does not when his face on camera about what he saw. i will bring a microphone in as you are looking at that yellow tape, maybe we can play some of the video that you saw earlier today. kevin, just describe the scene for me earlier today.

>>pam: we are having some problem with the j.r. stone live picture, we will talk with him and get back with him in just a moment as soon as we are able to get that picture solid. let us go to grant lodes in the news room with some additional information. grant can you hear us? >>reporter: we have video of the situation pam, i want to play this for you this was shot moments after the shooting at frank ogawa plaza. you can see the police on scene i will play this for you. look at the chest compressions, these are paramedic attending to the shooting victims and reports are that the victim has died as a result of the gunshot, or the gun shots. the police are trying to clear the scene and kron4 jeff pierce was saying how long paramedics and first responders work on that victim. they did chest compressions and cpr it seems like they gave it
6:02 pm
their best shot. as you can see he is on the gurney, they gave it their best shot to revive him but the reports are accurate and you can see him being wheeled out there, it looks like he is a black man, and as they are walking they are doing chest compressions on him. as j.r. said, this is a very fluid situation and we are hearing from actual occupy protesters that the occupy paramedics, or what they call occupy your medic they were first on scene to treat the victim and as you see, the officials showed up a little bit later. unfortunately if the reports are true, the victim has died. >>pam: we will continue to gather information about the victim and a motive as well as the suspect in the shooting. we have jeff bush standing by in the area, jeff, you have been years since all this started with
6:03 pm
happening now? >>reporter: right now everyone seems to be in a state of shock everyone has the same look on their face, they are kind of wandering around wondering what has happened. clearly this is a very dramatic scene out here. this is something that has everyone a little beside themselves. as i said earlier, there are some people who have gathered in groups and they are talking amongst themselves. but right now, it is almost vacant out here. there are not really too many people to be seen with in the field of view where i am right now. >>pam: what is the status of the protesters not you are not far from the camp, maybe if you can show the encampment that is not far from where the police cars are located. is there anything going on in reference to the protesters? activities that the protesters had in mind
6:04 pm
tonight have been canceled obviously due to this. you can see that it is pretty bare and out here, i know that it is a little dark tree to see, but there really are not too many people out. the ones that are, they are walking around and it still is really confusing right now. there is not a lot of information coming out right now. >>pam: enough if we were on the scene or originally because it was above his celebration of her by the process is for the fact that they have been at the plaza for about a month now is that correct? >>reporter: that is correct, they're planning to have a birthday celebration celebrating their one month anniversary here in front of the hall. i did see people loading up their tarps and packing up to get out of here. is just one of those situations, once you have
6:05 pm
violence on this scale happened i think a lot of, a lot of suspicion will go on and people will continue to be scared. >>pam: jeff bush is on the scene were a shooting about an hour ago happened. there are reports that the victim in this incident has died. it happened at frank ogawa plaza on the plaza, not too far away from where the encampment was set up. this was a day with a protesters for occupy oakland planning on having a celebration of some sort to mark their one month at their location. of course this is all connected to the occupy wall street demonstrations started back in september. let us check in with kimberlee sakamoto she has some new information for us. >>kimberlee: for all the commuters out there, we'd just found out they said that the oakland city center station had to be open for bart. however they telecommuters that even though it is open expect

6:15 pm
10 minutes ago. while sitting in my car i saw a string of people walking away with all their belongings across their back. i stop one man and ask him what he was doing and he said he is leaving because of the shooting. >> i have been an oakland resident all my life and i just wanted to bring some change to the community and oakland. right now i am this try to make sure all my stuff is safe and that i get someplace safe for today or at least a couple of days until this calms down so that i can come back and continue to do what i do every day. >>reporter: why are you leaving? >> i feel like the police may try to calm and bang it up a little bit. >>reporter: are you

6:24 pm
killed just outside oakland city hall at frank ogawa plaza which is right across from the tent encampment where the protesters had been situated for about one month now. we do not know the identity of the victim in that will not be released until his next of kin has been contacted about the death. we do not know the motive for the shooting. we do understand from our sources and kron4 how the mind let's been in touch with the oakland police that this was the only person injured in the incident. no suspect is apprehended at this time and we are continuing to gather information on this rocky new storage. let us take a break from this and checked in with jacqueline about what is happening in our weather. >>jacqueline: we will see big changes as a role in to tomorrow, today with a gorgeous day was sunny and temperatures were nice and mild. as we head into tomorrow, the rain will
6:25 pm
start to affect us bay area wide. let us ticket that our current conditions, temperatures will drop off quickly but flatten out overnight at does--overnight as the storm starts to approach. take a look at the positioning of the storm right now, we are in the clear. but as you can see it is heading towards the shore. you can see the main band of rain is starting to approach the northern california coastline at this hour. you will notice some spotty cloud coverage around the core of the storm, this is an unstable and will be pushing into tomorrow afternoon. tomorrow there is mainly coastal rain at the 7:00 hour. you see this pushed up on shore later in the morning but by noon mostly dry conditions in a little bit of a break from the rain. into the afternoon of the fact the showers will return but light rain expected through the afternoon. here is another view of your satellite and radar pictures. it shows the storm
6:26 pm
stationery and not really moving at this hour. there is the core of it, and is spinning around. this will move in tomorrow morning. computer models have been really an accurate about the timing and strength, some show of being called away offshore and some show what being a little bit on shore. i think it will stay on shore for the most part. and the rain is starting to approach the coastline. as we move into the 8:00 hour we will see some areas of heavy rain closer to the coastline. we will see a little the rain and lighter showers pushing into the peninsula. there could be more areas south of the golden gate or the south bay field with rain. then we start to get the wraparound showers near the core of the storm and this continues into the 7:00 hour. tomorrow evening there will be a few more areas of scattered rain. the future passes not
6:27 pm
showing that much into the evening but i think it is showing a little bit more--i think it will be a little bit more than what the radar is showing. here are the afternoon highs for friday. and take a licking your extended forecast for tomorrow. the changes with the rain and cooler temperatures about 10 degrees cooler. into saturday we have decrease in cloud coverage expected. temperatures will start to moderate in a little bit so will be a little more mild and will repeat that dry and moderate weather going all the way through next week. >>pam: are breaking story, a man has been shot and killed in the frank ogawa plaza police chief power jordan is on the scene, there is no word from the mayor's office at this hour we will be
6:28 pm
right back with more coming up at 6:30 p.m..
6:29 pm
6:30 pm
>> earlier tonight some pulled out a gun and fired several rounds into the crowd... >>pam: are we back? do we have cheese jordan? we are having some problems with allied-signal chief jordan's news conference that is going on in oakland. again he is talking about the fact that one man has been killed in oakland just outside of city hall. that happened within incident, we heard him say that there was a fight between two groups of african american males, then someone pulled out a gun. we
6:31 pm
know that one person has been killed, there were no others injured. it appears at this point there is no suspect in custody. chief jordan has been on the scene for a while now and so has the city council president larry reed we are trying to get that live signal back so that we can hear directly from the chief about what happened. are we able to get that now greg? ok let us start to listen in. >> i am not aware of that yet, we are still trying to put the pieces together. >> i do not know, this happened about an hour and a half ago when you're trying to put this together. >>reporter: might there be
6:32 pm
more police presence in the park to help those who are here are those from the outside. >> obviously when things like this happen you want to find a way to best protect the public. [shouting turn the lights back on] >> the lights do need to come back on. >>reporter: you can see what happened, i do not know if you remember what happened yesterday this is happening now, yesterday with the city council the people were shouting. and now they are shouting turn the lights on
6:33 pm
! i am sorry, is a little hectic year. they are yelling turn the lights on because in the distance i want to show you that the lights are not on. the mayor's office the issue is statement about this is saying that they were sorted out and that is the reason why they are turned off right now but as you saw on the press conference, it was a press conference that had to end abruptly. the chief walk off behind yellow tape because he was shouted down and could not talk over those voices again, the same thing happen is today with the city council members and they held a press conference. in the press conference they basically talked about why they wanted and demanded for the occupy protest, the occupy camp to be taken down. you can see right now, the police are still out here on the scene. you heard the chief speaking about this basically saying that the suspect in this case is still on the loose. i know i talked with witnesses who
6:34 pm
were here, they were here in the plaza earlier this evening around 5:00 p.m. when the shots broke out. one of the witnesses told me that this man was shot in the hand, and other witnesses this stemmed from a fight that happened yesterday. now, you wonder about the police presence out here in has been very light. we have been out here all week and we have not seen any officers at any times when we were out your reporting. someone came up to me today bringing that up, one of the protesters said that they felt a little more comfortable if more officers were out here. but nevertheless, the chief has spoken and he is back on his self on right now pam, back to you. >>pam: we missed a portion of what the chief was saying, can you fill us in on the details. we did hear him say that there were a fight between two groups of men and someone pulled out a gun was their additional information? >>reporter: if there was pam
6:35 pm
i was not able to see it, i was just trying to get a spot so that you could hear back at the station. when he sent a cold a lot of what several of the witnesses have said that there was a fight, someone was upset and yelled to his friend, and his friends came over and pulled out a gun and then begin to fire. i can tell you when the shots were fired we were on the other side of the plaza that you are looking at right now. i thought it was firecrackers instantly. my photographer looked at me and said those were not firecrackers. i did not have to wait very long, only about five or six seconds before you saw people running by saying someone had been shot. >>pam: on any indication whether or not the victim and the shooters will actually among the protesters who are in camp at frank ogawa plaza? >>reporter: i have talked with a number of different witnesses and a number of people that have been out
6:36 pm
here. they tell me that the people involved in the shooting were not part of the occupy movement. they said they had nothing to do with it, but again that is coming from a lot of the people in the occupy camp. that is coming from some of the people why out here. they said that this group was a number of different young people who were hanging out in this area in the distance that you see where they often hang out and that is when the fight started. again, i also know that i spoke with an occupy protesters earlier today and they told me that they knew the man who had been shot. they said that they knew him very well. so really, we are getting conflicting reports on that right now. >>pam: thank you for your input, we did hear the chief say that they were still putting the pieces together. of course this happened just before 5:00 p.m., over an hour and a half ago. so, there are many pieces to that puzzle. the suspect is
6:37 pm
still on the loose and one man that we know of is dead in light of the shooting at frank ogawa plaza. we will be right back. ok, you guys wanted a space for entertaining your friends,

6:41 pm
after gathering some information on the scene, let us listen to what he had to say. >> it is bringing elements into this plaza at night, even though it did not have a direct relationship it did have a relationship with the people that are coming down into this encampment. >>pam: that is council president larry reed, we have not heard from mayor jean quan on this development today. this is exactly what civic leaders were concerned about, that violence might erupt in the area of the occupy protest. the occupy protesters said they had nothing to do with what happened. they said this happen feet away from their location nonetheless the concerns continued to mount in light of the shooting. you may recall the last night at 11:00 p.m. will tell you about developments at uc-berkeley and the occupy protesters there have continued to stay on campus, reggie kumar is

6:47 pm
go to tony stewart who played for joe paterno and penn state. is the obvious first question, are you shocked about what has taken place this week? >> this is a tragic tragic situation that has gone on at penn state. more importantly the victim of the sexual abuse scandal, my heart and my prayers go out to the families and the victims. that is what i would really like to relate to those involved. >>gary: do you think that joe paternal deserve to be let go at this time rather than finish out as he has requested the final three games? >> in this situation it is hard to say what is the right thing to do. we have victims that we are really concentrating on in this situation but i think the
6:48 pm
university is doing the best that they can with this situation and it is unprecedented terms an unprecedented waters right now. >>gary: we want to make sure that again we are not being insensitive. we realize that indeed the victims are the ones who are suffering. now you play for jerry sandusky, the men at the root of the problem, the man accused of molesting those children who just your memories of sandusky as a coach? >> i did play during that time when sandusky was a coach at penn state. at no time did i see or hear about any of these allegations. my experiences with penn state, the coaching staff and mr. sandusky you know, my memories of my time there are good memories and times
6:49 pm
where i grew as a person. those are really the things that i remember. >>gary: i do not want to make a fibber out of myself, but we do have some pictures now and some video. >>gary: tony i want to ask you directly, could it be that joe paterno has become such a guide that maybe he was not paid attention to things outside of football as much as he should have question marks as >> othe only thing i know is that there's one guy. and he is an icon in college football history. but penn state is a great institution they are known
6:50 pm
for multiple sports. their volleyball team is well known. their academic programs are at the top of a lot of different areas in the educational world. >>gary: quite honestly, i know we invite you as a guest to talk about your all moderate and these are difficult questions but in hindsight, at 84 years of age did joe paternal state too long as the defense?-- at the dance? >> i think the public will be surprised at how much he really is involved at penn state. >>gary: if i said you, unfortunately when you go to and you look up joe paterno, the first thing will be this can no will you agree with that? or
6:51 pm
do you think what he has accomplished over the 46 years as head coach will be enough to somehow soften what some people see now as a man who did not do his job and was reckless? >> it you know what, it will always be a part of his legacy and i know only time will tell what exactly will stand out. but my experience with coach paternal, i had a good experience for him as a man who pushed me to be a better person, to be a better player and to be a better man and student. there were times when he actually called me out when i was feeling in my responsibilities as a student. those are the things that i will remember personally from coach joe paterno. >>gary: and another tough one, ticket yes, joe paterno was 84 years of age has been at penn state for over 60 years, will he be able to live the rest of his life
6:52 pm
with any piece?-peace? >> i guess that is a choice they he will have to make. if he wants to step penn state or where does he go from there. i guess it that will all be decided as the story unfolds. >>gary: any comments about the students last night, i always undermined this by saying that these are young people i would imagine that 19 and 20 years of age and they do not fully grasp the situation and what has gone on with the young boys molested by a penn state football coach. any comments you can say about the campus and over 2000 people turning out in support of joe paterno? >> you know what, penn state right now that is a long way away, we are right here on the west coast and the media is pretty coverage
6:53 pm
from penn state. but that is a whole different dynamic. it is important that the students, they are thinking about their coach, but it is important that they do not get out of character of what penn state represents. but that is a small minority of the people who attend and support penn state. >>gary: are you embarrassed to be a penn state alumnus? >> i will always be proud to be penn state alumni. >>gary: thank you very much tony. that was tony stewart and we will be back in just a moment.
