5:03 am
there were 7 shootings. one ruled a homicide. >> one in critical condition. one a suspicious death and then a shooting where a woman found bleeding was rushed to the hospital and then there is this dangerous sideshows popping up at intersections throughout oakland to exacerbate the problem even worse. >> we encountered a very large and extremely violent and dangerous side show. >> this sideshow reached a number of over 300 vehicles in over 200 additional spectators. a significant dangerous threats to our officers. why the use of firearms as well lasers pointed at the officers and then objects being thrown at the officers as if that's not bad enough illegal fireworks exploded in the sky call centers. overwhelmed. >> flooded with complaints and a police force on able to keep up. >> opd was unable to manage any fireworks related activity
5:04 am
in from my perspective, it was not appropriate for us to focus on fireworks. why we we're seeing experience in the potential loss of life. >> chief ended on this brief. but significant summation on where his city is and what happens next and response to lawlessness. >> this is a warm summer. we have 67 homicides. this is been a different year. this has been this year has been challenging for us since the beginning going into 2020. it has not slowed and so i don't you know, previously. i would have told you that hopefully this slows down the pandemic allows these things to open back up. but we haven't seen theresa kron 4 news. >> there's so much violence and so many calls for service that ambulances and paramedics are having a real hard time keeping up with the volume of calls. >> our fall and the last system was over inundated with calls and they were unable to respond in a timely manner to
5:05 am
the and so everybody was consumed with these issues not only the police department. also ambulances didn't have enough resources that come out of the system is and that just goes to show to the level of violence that we were managing is that we didn't have ambulances available to you know, comment provide medical support. >> ambulance service in the city of oakland is provided through a service called fall cuts a 5 year contract with alameda county, the agency provides service to most of alameda county chief armstrong go says that officers had to step up to provide medical services for several of the victims. they were just inundated. >> contra costa county firefighters responded more than 50 fires on july 4th. most of them grass fires, including this one near 6.80, in martinez. it got dangerously close to some homes. but none was damaged despite the busy night. fire officials say they're actually fewer fires this 4th of july than there were last year.
5:06 am
>> temperatures were slightly lower last compared to the year before and unity is recycling higher and that no doubt contributed to a lot of grass fires that might have started taking hold not doing so last night. >> most cars in contra, costa county came from the pittsburgh antioch area. there were also several medical calls related to fireworks and we should get more details about that later this week. 5. '06, right now. take a look at the mess left behind in san francisco before and after pictures 3rd street and burke avenue. public works crews have been picking up debris dumped by people who set off illegal fireworks look at all of that trash. it was also busy in the north bay police responding to several sideshows and illegal fireworks explosions in vallejo. take a look at videos posted on social media shows the hundreds of people on the streets there. at least 11 sideshows were spotted all
5:07 am
across the city of vallejo sunday night gunshots from automatic weapons. we're in the crowd and at one of the side shows to spectators were hit by cars doing donuts along broadway and illinois. a police spokesperson says that responding officers were met with fireworks being thrown at them. and then the next morning businesses along broadway street were seen left damaged and tagged with graffiti. city leaders say that people need to be held accountable for this because they're wild stunts. their illegal events and they're dangerous in the south bay san jose made it illegal to promote sideshows and social media threatening people with fines and possible jail time. santa rosa, police say 35 year-old man was killed in a drive-by shooting. 3 others were also shot. 2 of them. >> we're teenagers. this happened early yesterday morning on beechwood drive.
5:08 am
that's just west of highway one. oh, one, we have kron four's taylor sacking now with more on what happened there. >> santa rosa. police say the suspects are still out there and family members of the victims who i spoke with off camera say they're very worried police say the suspects got away after crashing their car and then running from that area. they're now using all information from and inside that vehicle to track down whoever is responsible. >> a memorial now grows at beechwood greenwood drives in santa rosa after a drive-by shooting early monday morning that left 35 year-old javier montez dead and 3 others injured. santa rosa police say it all happened after a large illegal fireworks gathering with up to 100 people when officers arrived out there. we found 4 people have been shot by. >> a suspected drive-by shooting. one person was deceased. 2 teenagers were shot and one female in her late 20's was also shot sergeant her and says. >> he 29 year-old woman in 17 year-old female are currently
