8:02 pm
steve aveson. and i'm vicki liviakis in for pam moore. although health officials know the source is food's still unclear how it killed three people and sickened more than a dozen others. kron-4's charles clifford joins us live tonight. charles are investigators any closer to figuring this out? well, we now know that 17 people have been sickened after eating food from a thanksgiving day meal at the veteran memorial building in antioch. most are recovering but 1 person remains hospitalized and 3 have died. now health officials are scrambling to figure out why. contra costa county health officials say they have launched a full investigation into how so many people could become ill after eating food from what was supposed to be a routine thanksgiving dinner. while the investigation is still ongoing, they now believe that the most likely cause was a food borne illness. whether that was a virus or some sort of bacteria they still don't know. sot we are going to be learning things that we can come back and share with you. the one thing that has become clear is that everyone who fell ill ate food connected in some way to the thanksgiving day meal. some people ate at the event but others ate food brought home by family or friends. health officials are trying to determine which item
8:03 pm
or items may have been contaminated but the food served at the luncheon came from a variety of different sources. for example, the stuffing, gravy and mashed potatoes were made at the veterans building but the turkeys and pies were brought in by guests. some people also tried to donate food to the event, but were turned away because organizers didn't know where that food had been prepared. those people just started giving it away. sot we understand that there was such a long line for food that some folks did take that food. sot the food came from a lot of different sources it's going to be hard to... at this point, the health department is not releasing many details about the victims. they are only saying that those who got sick ranged in age from teenagers to people in their 70s. autopsies are being conducted on those who died to try and find an exact cause of death but it's possible we may never know for sure. sot it's really hard to recover an organism from people or food so it's possible may might not know. thank you charles for that report. grant lodes continues our team coverage now.and grant we're learning more about some of the victims. >> grant:the identities of the three people killed as a result of what appears to be a food borne illness. have not yet been released. the contra costa county sheriff's department says autopies are still underway and
8:04 pm
next of kin have not yet been notified. the state department of social services did confirm that all three victims were residents of two assisted living facilities in antioch run by the same operator. two of the victims had been living at minerva's place on palo verde way. the third person was a resident of minerva place 4 which is located just a few blocks away. a neighbor was sorry to hear about the deaths which have still not yet been definatively linked to the big thanksgiving meal. " all that food is donated you dont' know where it's coming from, that's the other thing i was thinking how long those turkey's had been sitting out not that it's been hot but it don't need to be hot for food to go bad. that's a tragedy that really sad." we are learning that one of the original eight patients hospitalized was a resident of another adult residential care home. that patient had been living at rosa's garden, a facility that is not connected in any way to the other minerva's place homes. that man, identified as jim carrillo jr is still in the hospital but he is said to be doing better. he's now listed in fair condition. sheriff's deputies say they're getting closer to catching the two inmates who escaped from the santa clara county jail the day before thanksgiving. today there was a lot of activity in san jose as part of the search. kron four's spencer blake is live there tonight.
8:05 pm
do they know where the two men are spencer? no, but they did make another arrest related to the case. and earlier today, they thought this r-v might have held clues for them, as well. a swat team raid of this motor home did not turn up either of the inmates on the run. but police are closely tracking and interviewing associates of rogelio chavez, which is what led them here to the east side of san jose. "today's operation is not tied to the days inn. it's part of the many public tips we get, and its part of our investigators' work of building this case." the motel sergeant rich glennon is referring to is the place in gilroy that deputies searched sunday night. that operation led to the arrest of emily vaca, whom police suspect of helping chavez by driving him around the county. a couple hours before these teens grabbed some snacks on the way home tuesday, they were holed up in their classrooms at overfelt high school, which was on lockdown during the search. "i called my mom right away to make sure she knew what was going on, and i told her it was code blue. and she was scared, she was telling me to stay in class, not go outside, or anything." this ninth grader didn't even know about the escaped inmates until after the lockdown was over. "i kept looking up at the helicopters passing by and i kept telling my friends i was kind of scared." most holy trinity school and katherine smith elementary were both close enough to the scene to be on lockdown, too. people in the area could hear the flashbangs used by the swat
8:06 pm
team, which you can see from our helicopter partnership with a- b-c seven news. "you always hear about things going on over there, but i stay away from there."
8:07 pm
while chavez and his partner in crime, laron campbell, are still on the loose, the sheriff's office says several recent leads are very credible. "the information continues to come in. it's been steady since the announcement of the 20 thousand dollar reward, and we're going to continue until we bring them both back into custody." tips are also coming in from all over the county; deputies *do think the two men are still in the area live in san jose, spencer blake, kron four news. thank you spencer for that report. we told you about this breaking situation as it unfolded on our kron-4 mobile app stay connected on breaking news by downloading our free app today and opting in for push alerts. >> steve:nearly a week after she was found wandering on a highway 150 miles from her shasta county home. we are learning the details of sherri papini's ordeal.

today isis is claiming responsibility for inspiring the attack on the campus of the ohio state university, releasing a statement on its propaganda news website. there is no evidence the claim is true. investigators will only say they are looking at terrorism as a possible motive. josh earnest/ white house press secretary: "there is plenty of available evidence to indicate that this individual may have been motivated by extremism and may have been motivated by a desire to carry out an act of terrorism." a post on abdul artan's facebook page just before the rampage pays tribute to al qaeda cleric anwar aw awlaki and admonishes the united states --- saying "by allah, we will not let you sleep unless you give peace to the muslims. you will not celebrate or enjoy any holiday." investigators are scrutinizing his cellphone and laptop and interviewing those who knew him to learn more about his motivations. louann carnahan/ neighbor: "they asked me the same

8:34 pm
unknown reasons. philip mudd/ cnn counterterrorism analyst: "this was an 18 year old. he had just transferred schools. we don't understand his background with the family. he's an immigrant. we don't understand the issues he had emigrating. one of the difficulties in these is looking at what he's claiming and comparing it to the rest of his life." an ohio state university police officer shot and killed artan after he failed to obey orders to stop. three of the eleven people hurt in the attack remain in the hospital. now to another big story we're tracking tonight -- deadly wildfires tearing through hundreds of homes and businesses in tennessee -- including tourist attractions. grant lodes is back now with the dramatic new video. three people have died in the wildfires near the great smoky mountains. authorities are going door-to- door to make sure everyone is safe. about a dozen people have been injured. gatlinburg's mayor says they firefighters are still battling hotspots and there will be a curfew in effect tonight. more than 14-thousand residents and tourists were forced to evacuate the tourist city in the mountains. top congressional republicans are distancing themselves from donald trump after he suggested anyone who burns an american flag should face consequences. such a prison time. or loss of citizenship. the president elect tweeted the controversial comments out today. the first amendment protects flag burning as an exercise of free speech. and house majority leader kevin mccarthy says congress has no plans to take action against flag burning. he told reporter he does not support the idea of flag burning but does support the first amendment.
