9:01 pm
there is no word on when the freeway could reopen again. this is northbound, 80 traffic. there's being forced off the freeway at the oak street exit. we've learned that a press release with additional details, a suspect sometime soon from cal. what a california highway patrol stay with kron 4, both on air and online for the latest details on this this latest shooting comes after a month after an alameda county sheriff's recruit was killed in a freeway shooting. >> near the bay bridge toll plaza. 28 year-old david. the wind was driving home from work from his training on january 4th, when someone shot into his car near the toll plaza, the wind was just a month away from starting his career as an alameda county sheriff's deputy. investigators are still looking for the suspect and trying to determine what led up to that shooting. >> as the chp investigation into this latest shooting continues. the sheriff's office is calling for
9:02 pm
surveillance cameras on freeways in alameda county to help solve these crimes. lieutenant ray kelly telling us tonight, quote, we do support freeway cameras in alameda county. we hope our elected officials and community leaders will invest in technology for public safety. the sheriff's office made a similar statement last month following the shooting that killed sheriff's cadet david nguyen saying then it was time to take action before someone else was killed in a car to car shooting. all right. now back to the actual shooting that investigation is underway right now. many oakland city leaders. >> say they're very concerned about these ongoing freeway shootings. and joining us to talk more about this deadly incident and the broader issue, oakland city council member dan called, thank you so much for your time this evening. do you have any information you can share with us about tonight's incident? >> i we don't get this jurisdictions. so city of oakland on has limited information other other than that, we can confirm it was a fatal shooting on e.
9:03 pm
>> one of the big issues that has come up we just talked about police asking for surveillance cameras on freeways. of course, there's different jurisdictions that that freeways travel through, but within the city limits of oakland where you represent constituents, what are your thoughts on having surveillance cameras on the freeways? >> surveillance cameras 3 ways that would be responsibility of the state. that's that's completely chp jurisdiction. and if they want to do in and then the cameras are of a nature where they could actually help solve a violent crimes. all the investigations for violent crimes. open to getting that shot. we have to try something. i don't think surveillance cameras on freeways are going to be answer to solving all shootings or the violent crimes that may happen on freeways. but if they could be one of the and it's worth a try, let's let's see. it tried out and see how it works and helps great. if not, then what will stop. we do know that in
9:04 pm
the incident that left a a kron, 4 security guard killed that happened on the streets of the city of oakland. and as for camera, was there. >> and police credit the camera with identifying a vehicle that was associated with the crime which ultimately led to the arrests of some suspects involved in that case in that case is still pending. so that's one example of how they could work. >> for and they're they're they're many private businesses, as well as television cameras. of course, that do get footage that happened to i come across a climbs in progress. and when that happens, opd or our police department and other other jurisdictions as well, take advantage of that. and that helps with the investigations. it's critical that we have enough information and evidence to investigate violent crimes thoroughly and successfully and hold people accountable. if you have enough evidence to do so. so whatever we can do to make sure we investigate these crimes fully in sand early with appropriate evidence, i'm all in favor doing that. so other counties in the bay area are using
9:05 pm
these kinds of cameras on the freeways. you, as you mentioned, this is a state and chp issue. but >> is this something that you would push the state and push the chp in terms of trying to get the money an allocation of for those cameras. and you said this is not. >> the answer. what are the other answers that you think would help in this kind of situation? >> first it if the state the state has plenty of money right now. so if they want put surveillance cameras on key locations on the state's highways where they think it's most helpful, they could do so. and they don't. even myers, les body else is urging to do it. they could. they could certainly have the we have the money in the chp interest to do that. i had no objection to that. it works great. that doesn't work. that will take the cameras down and do something else. but we need to look at both the short and long-term comprehensive approach. we need to have massive investments in rehabilitation throughout every single state prison in our state. if we're going to be serious about reducing violent crime in the long
9:06 pm
term, we know that most people who commit violent crimes are people who have committed violent crimes before that there there. there it was. that that's the challenge it. and we also know that many of the programs in some of state prisons are successful in reducing recidivism. but when people get out of prison as they have every right to do and go back to their their own cities where they were from as as a as they should be back with the family. and we want to make sure that people have the services both within prison and they come out of prison. so they're less likely to get back into the world. the crime we their success. we've seen success in that regard. we're just not spending enough investing enough in those programs than a farce, a prisons and jails to make an overall successful. that is absolutely critical. at the same time we have to investigate violent crimes and we catch people ith enough evidence. we have to hold them accountable so and get off the street. so they're not going to commit these crimes and for people all. so it's not an either or approach with take a long-term immediate term and short term approach to
9:07 pm
reducing crime and involves many, many things. and we need to make sure we have the appropriate investments. do all those talking about investment. so the governor just said he has 45 billion dollars and he's trying to figure out how to spend it. >> is this one way to spend it? is that enough? that's a lot of money. >> it is. we could certainly use more funding in oakland to help with our homeless population. help housing for homeless population and to provide additional funding for protection strategies. and alameda county certainly could use additional funding to help with violence, prevention and reentry. and certainly support their efforts to get more money. so it government looking for some work productive does then some of those state funds on reducing violence and helping our homeless. oakland-alameda county is first in line. >> counselor, we're we're out of time, but i do want ask you quickly, your overall concerned as we're now seeing the frequency of these freeway shootings, even though again, is the chp jurisdictional issue. but we're seeing more of this kind of behavior. what is your overall concerned as a
