response went today? >> i learned about it. i think on social people think happened very quickly. learn about pushing the to contact the department. i just got off the phone with the get a briefing and that chief and the mayor and i think one of the most important things right now any time that happens when they're young people involved, people city. >> but councilors be working to provide counselors. they're considering good chance when those 2020 school tomorrow and part all a part of the city. let's make sure that our young people are taken care of. and all the people who have worked in that that a school community, that part of town are taken care of as well because it trim at the tape from attica you have make sure we're taking care to people to be taken care of while also doing what we can to find the perpetrators, hold them accountable in a serious fashion we can't do overtime to make sure that doesn't happen again. getting guns off
the street in the short term preventing retaliation. but in short and long-term getting the guns off the street and making sure we have well staffed police department and that are violent. ruptured which have been deployed already almost immediately are out doing what they can to make sure that did not expand it. get worse. >> so so, dan, you did meet with the mayor and the assistant chief. any new information coming from them? was this a targeted shooting? do you know? >> there it's under investigation and they do not know that yet. they do. they do know there were multiple shooters more than one shooter or more than 2 shooters. they can that they know that and they have to they don't have information yet as to with shooters to how old they are. if they have some some eyewitnesses. but the information is still being gathered. and course, when you have an active investigation, the shooting, we want to be careful how much information to release to the public because that could hinder the
investigation. so they're doing the best they they're out there back just just earlier this week, our police chief increased the number of officers respond to our investigations unit when it comes to violent crimes. so that's you to happen by that. happening. we make sure our investigations division is fully staffed on its way to that point. and you need to make sure that we have find more officers to investigations while also due the fire program and other programs that help reduce violence over time. >> well, certainly, and we want to make sure that we're giving the most accurate information out to people to who may have questions there was some confusion as to whether this the incident actually occurred on campus or in proximity to the campus. do you have any information on that? >> my understanding location is that the catholic that have multiple kind of cool on it as well as well open space. my understanding is that did happen us. the property, but i
don't have any details than that. i cannot back to that location. i don't like it on blog that large campus area that have a school fight on it. >> you did say that there were more than 2 shooters. so at least 3 shooters as what you've been told. >> and that's what i've been told again that i don't have any confirmation on that. but we've been told more than 2 shooters, you don't know extent it shooter may have been one of the victims. >> i think that a lot of investigation has to happen and i don't want to jump the on intended. i don't want jump ahead the fact that know for sure. >> you speak about these of violence interrupters. can you explain to our audience what they are, what they do? >> city and a number of large cities have by the directors. but many of them have come
from criminal justice system or a long time ago were working members and they are on staff at late afternoon on profit that fell on to what shooting happened, including homicide. you find information and they what they can to get rick speed in potential retaliatory conflict. i can make sure that for the shooting that horrible. but it might be bad if allegation and like many people get shot and die because of that. and so they have had lot of sick staff in iraq. conflict started make sure that they don't let's stop stop it at the beginning and not let it continue on so more people don't get hurt. and so they've been deployed throughout. doing what they what they can that they're not going to solve all the problems that they do. the great job in reducing violence. and that's why they've been deployed almost immediately. and that's one of one of our violence prevention program provide it.
that's one of our by the pension and intervention program in oakland. and we have other problems as well. and we've just last year we doubled the you headed by money, eventually double the size of those programs. but there's more that to be on that. >> do they work on campuses? school campuses in oakland and were any of these violence interrupters there today? you know, if there are any police officers there today, i'm assuming these violence interrupters are not armed. >> yet the virus, the raptors up civilian side of the bay. they say work at arm's length from the police department, but they do a great job. and we do think that the potential for retaliation and reducing the on potential for ongoing conflicts when it comes to groups gangs. i would eventually for that matter, i do not if there are any armed officers before sheriff on site before it happened. obviously, there are many on site right after it happened. i you like budgetary from shut
down their lives for it a year or 2 and bit possibility of the county share and view complete department. >> so certainly this is an ongoing investigation as they try to piece piece. you know, the puzzle together. there is surveillance video. i understand on the campus says certainly they're going to be interviewing. we understand the interview to some of the the there. any other witnesses? is there a feeling that this could be gang-related? >> item. i'm not sure we want to base our investigation of feeling. i think we'll try to base it on just what you just said. interviewing witnesses, gathering evidence and getting all the information we can following up on that on possible. i don't know. but anybody has, fact doing the investigation is in full board. and as we have a follow up on the leads, we hope to able to bring the perpetrators to justice because we can't
let that happen again. >> council member, i know you love oakland, this must eat it. you to see continual violence like this. and now it's spilled onto a school campus. >> it's heart-wrenching out. you know, i think shootings have been up over the couple years. you know, glenn, that never okay. and we need to bring it back down like we did before. in fact, come from a 2014 2019 by the crime went down in almost every every category about a crime, 5 years. and then couple years ago, i go back you need to do was to get me to go back in the down direction. and that's what working on to do a complicated trash. >> i think you have a lot of people who would love to see that as well. thank you so much for joining us tonight. council member dan kalb from oakland. we need take a very quick break. we'll be right back. hurricane ian, one of

not much rain coming down in that short amount of time. but we're looking at a sustained winds now of 115 miles an hour. still category 3 and over land. but it is slowly moving only to the north northeast at 8 miles an hour. so this storm is just going to be and are right across florida devastation all along this path right over orlando, possibly as a category one, then making its way back out in the atlantic right now doesn't look like re intensify, but it's not going to be done all that rain. it's going to cause all kinds of problems as we get in toward the end the week. here is we're going to see more of that rain moving on into parts of georgia and also south carolina and more devastation all along that path. guys. that's the very latest. back to you. thank you, lawrence. when we come back, our breaking news coverage continues. still ahead. >> the latest on that shooting at a school campus in east oakland. 6 people shot and tonight police are still looking for the shooter or shooters will be back right after this.
