newscast a shooting this afternoon in downtown oakland. katie's brooks jarocz live now for us at the scene with new information, brooks. heather police haven't said much other than a woman was shot. she is in stable condition in the hospital were along 19th street between broadway and telegraph and glance marks the spot, according to witnesses. they have told us that there were some car break ins that occurred here and one of the people's cars who was being broken into. he saw what was going on, came out pulled out a gun. there was some gunfire exchanged, and then the suspects took off in the direction toward the fox theater. and that is where potentially were told by some witnesses that a bullet a stray bullet hit a woman. and then she was down on the sidewalk. there have been a lot of people out here today. who have come out to see one of the concerts
4:28 pm
at the theater, and we're told that that woman could have been waiting to possibly get inside and see that concert. this happened just before 2 30. several witnesses say they have seen many break ins occur at cars here. and one witness describes what he heard this afternoon. take a listen. it was a rapid fire, basically, automatic rifle or something like that. and it turned out that it was just people acting up, shooting down, up and down the street. and. the woman i think got shot in their arm. you know, that's why the parliament. you know, in the last 10 minutes or so i've talked to several people who just kind of shrug it off and say boy, it's another day in oakland. we just came off of violent weekend there have been 119 homicides in the city. and now this in broad daylight shooting, and yet more work for oakland police to try to investigate and figure out what exactly happened here. alright brooks jarocz reporting live
4:29 pm
for us there on that shooting in broad daylight there in downtown oakland. brooks. thank you. that's right run role. oh we're gonna just take it anyway. dramatic and emotional testimony today as kyle rittenhouse took the witness stand at his own homicide trial. britain house said that he was acting in self defense when he used an automatic rifle to shoot three men, killing two of them during protests in kenosha, wisconsin. joining us now for more is ktvu legal analyst michael cardoza. michael good to see you. certainly it is very unusual for a defendant to take the stand at their own trial. does it look to you like. this was a smart move for kyle rittenhouse's defense team. you know, certainly there was high drama in the courtroom today. and yes, i think it was the right thing to put him on the stand. it is taking a big chance because of the jury
4:30 pm
doesn't like the defendant for some reason, the entire case no matter how strong. focuses on the testimony of the defendant, but in this case i thought written house was intelligent or onions. it was appropriate emotionally. he answered questions. i don't think it gets any better when you put a defendant on the stand and what he did today, but alex that being said, you never know how would jury. perceives the testimony of the defendant. how do you think the cross examination was by the prosecution today? obviously they tried to go step by step and sort of poke holes in kyle rittenhouse's story. do you think they were able to maybe convince some jurors that kyle rittenhouse wasn't actually in fear for his life when he opened fire? i don't think so at all. i don't think they made any dense in his testimony. and if you recall during one of the recesses, the judge absolutely
4:31 pm
came down on the prosecutor for what he thought were unethical questions in commenting. a about the written houses, right? not to say anything. he questioned him about that the judge stopped. the drought pushed the jury out and absolutely lambasted the prosecutor, and he also got on him about another issue. so this judge. is conveying to this jury when they are in there that he's not very fond of this prosecutor. yes and you know what? you're what you're talking about here was was the judge twice on two occasions criticizing. the prosecution, the deputy district attorneys line of questioning once it was for questions about why written house remains silent after his arrest, and then the second time it was related to questions about evidence that was not allowed to be admitted at trial. how unusual was this for the judge to lay into one of the attorneys in this way, and what do you think it's
4:32 pm
going to come by the defense team's motion for a mistrial? well first of all i don't think the judge will grant a mistrial in this case, especially a mistrial with prejudice, meaning if he dismisses that it can never be filed again. he won't do that. as for whether it's unusual, it is unusual judges usually especially prosecutors, don't come down on them. but what the minister bigger the prosecutor in this case did was so agree gis when he went after kyle rittenhouse about first time you're telling the story never told it before you've seen everybody testified defense objects the judge sends the jury on says you can't comment on that. and alex what this is doing. should written house get convicted. there's an appeal issue and a very strong appeal issue. as for the other, the judge ruled before you are not to talk about this particular piece of evidence,
4:33 pm
the judge told the my thinking right now is to keep it out. what's protocol is for the defense or the prosecution if they want to talk about what a judge says to that point, he's keeping out you say judge has there been enough evidence that i can now go into that side? object. the prosecutor did not do that, and bam! that judge went right through the roof. and rightfully so before we wrap up, michael. how does a heated exchange like this in the middle of a trial play for the jury when you have a judge being being this critical of the prosecution in that way does does that have an effect on the jury as they go back to make their decision? i can't tell you how big an effect but keep in mind. the jury didn't see all of that the judge push the jury out of the jury box and into the jury room, but not withstanding. the jury picks up little cues from the judge. you know how he talks to how we treat both sides and in this case from what i've seen when
4:34 pm
the judge deals with the prosecutor because of the prosecutor's transgression, the jury is going to pick up judge doesn't like him and that will affect the government's case. you don't want that from a judge implying to a jury that you can't trust this guy. it's going to have a devastating effect. if i had to prognosticate. they're going to find him not guilty, but. again one thing we do know we don't know what a jury will do. no, absolutely not. we will continue to follow up but certainly pivotal moment in this trial that we saw today. yeah alright. ktvu legal analyst michael cardoza always appreciate your time. thanks. you're welcome. take care. new york's attorney general, released hundreds of pages of transcripts today of interviews conducted during an investigation into sexual harassment allegations made against former governor andrew cuomo. the transcripts included cuomo's interview with the independent investigator hired by attorney general letitia james. in that interview, he

toward the phoenix lake spillway. it's amazing just how much water is coming out. of the lake and in the stream, so just amazing to see all that water just re energized. basically with all those storms moving into the bay area, especially that big atmospheric river just over a couple weeks back now it looks like a storm track will be pushed up to our north. so with that we are locked in a dry weather pattern. for maybe 9 10 days. something like that. but at least the last rainfall, of course was yesterday. so our tally is up to one dry day. we'll probably add onto this to maybe nine or 10. dry days will be keep updating. this map fact was interesting. when i updated this map from this was actually from the last march, we had a stretch of over 30 days of dry weather, so hopefully it won't be that long. we definitely need some more rainfall to attract here in the bay area satellite showing you some of the fog from this morning kind of melting away into the afternoon hours, and that'll probably the story once again. as for as we head into your thursday current numbers right now san francisco 63 close to 70 out toward fairfield upper sixties there. at san jose

right now, checking him. 67 degrees beautiful live camera above san francisco. looking out toward the bay we will cloud things up a bit overnight with some patches of some dead fog, but still a nice kind of brisk wednesday evening out there overnight. we'll start out tomorrow morning in the forties and the fifties so a bit of a chill in the air to start things out tomorrow morning, so definitely want to bundle up and of course, watch out for some pockets of fog. what's happening in this big area of high pressure which is offshore, this will gradually build in and this will be the source of the dry weather and the warmer what other as well. but it kind of squashes that to fog bank and if you think of all the recent rainfall is a lot of moisture on the ground. the long nights we have the fog that forms, especially in some of the valley locations. and that'll be the case. first thing tomorrow morning. no dense fog advisories, but just be prepared for some dense fog. storm track is being pushed up to our north this week, so it is that mild to born pattern. the rainfall kind of focused up to our north up in the pacific northwest. that's what that will be the kind of the target zone at least as some more significant rate fall at least with this pattern this week and

is holding his high heels for hope fundraiser in santa rosa. and i am so proud to once again be the emcee of this very important event joining me now i'm talking more about mental health support as dr jonathan horowitz, director of the san francisco stress and anxiety center, jonathan thank you so much for being here. no doubt the pandemic has been an added layer of stress for so many people. what are ways that people can manage their mental health during this ongoing pandemic? hi heather. that's a great question and thank you so much also for taking the time to address this topic. it's really important. i think they think what people can do. first of all is recognized that what we're experiencing now isn't normal. it feels more normal than it did before, but we're not back to what's fully normal. and people are experiencing lots of loss. there's a lot of uncertainty, and that creates a lot of anxiety, and that can never real psychological impact. so 1st 1st off. just being aware of that is important. um there are people who aren't severely suffering, but they're not fully okay, right? the other thing that is really important,
4:50 pm
i think is social contact. sometimes it takes creativity during the pen the pandemic to get out there and be around the people that you care about and do the things that are important to you, but i would encourage people to really make the extra effort to do that. uh, as we get through this. yeah and jonathan, we know that the holidays are coming up and so from family to finances boy, the season can really trigger anxious nous for some people. what's your advice for the holiday season? yeah so there's a few things first off just being aware that the holidays mom aren't the change in season so it gets dark earlier, and some people are really sensitive to that. so if you're one of those people just knowing that that can affect your mood, and that you might need to get more sunlight that can really help some people. secondly with the holidays, managing expectations is really important. i think we have this idea from the media and from culture that there's like a perfect kind of holidays that we're supposed to experience and for most people most of the time, the holidays are not really like that so going easier on yourself and have a
4:51 pm
good expectations. realistic expectations is important. and then finally being careful with alcohol, you know, because the holidays can be so anxiety provoking for people. they tend to overindulge. right so just being really careful about how much you're drinking out events throughout the season that can be really. no longer a really good advice there jonathan. what are the situations and risk factors that could lead someone to consider suicide? and as a friend or loved one? how might we respond? great question. yeah so as far as risk factors, obviously mental illness in the history of mental health concerns is a big risk factor, but it's not just about mental health concerns. it's also things like financial stress, loneliness, alienation, shame, loss of relationships, especially when people are going through when they're in the midst of a loss like that, that can be a real risk factor. uh as far as what you can do as a friend or colleague just expressing concern. i think a lot of times people are
4:52 pm
hesitant because they feel like they don't have the right words. you don't have to have the person the perfect words. it can be as simple as just saying, you know, from a heartfelt place of concern. you see him down? what's going on for you if you think that somebody really is going to harm themselves, you can ask them straight out, you know? are you planning on doing that? are you going to hurt yourself in and if you think that they are, they say they are. then professional intervention is really important. so calling 911 or calling the national suicide hotline and the number for that is 1 802 738255. okay final question for you. how should we as a society better address the issue of suicide and mental health. yeah i think the first and most importantly, just talking about it and removing the stigma from the conversation goes along way people commit suicide or try to commit suicide because they're in deep. emotional pain, and they're unable to see a way out of that pain. and on top of that they often have additional
4:53 pm
shame about the fact that they're feeling so bad and are considering suicide cycle. so the more that we can talk openly about it, and people share their stories and their experiences. it gives room for them to talk about what they're experiencing, and that can really help. um the other thing that's important as a society is just making mental health services widely available. we're getting better about this. there are more online resources, for example, for example. but we still have a ways to go in california. insurance companies are required to provide full coverage for all mental health conditions. so if your insurance company doesn't have therapists available or they won't pay for your care or something. then get a new one or contact california department of insurance. yeah jonathan, thank you so much for what you do. and thank you for taking the time to have this really important conversation. appreciate it. yeah. thanks for having me. okay so friday's high heels for hope is actually sold out. but if you would like to make a donation, or you want
