6:02 pm
are not identifying who that person is. they say they do not believe they know who that person is, but they do have video of this person. they were able to get surveillance video showing the person looking suspicious, walking around the plaza and dropping that back off. so right now, we do not believe that person has been identified. we do not believe they are in custody. that is part of this ongoing investigation. but we are told by law enforcement that they do raise pretty severe charges, including weapons of mass destruction charges. ana: liz, thank you. in the last major security issue it opens federal building was a doubly drive-by shooting in may of 2020. federal security officer dave patrick underwood was shot and killed while inside the building's security post. a second guard was injured. both men were watching the building during a demonstration of nearby over the police killing of george floyd. the accused shooter has pleaded not guilty. dan: one week after the 87 news site team discovered millions of dollars in ppe sitting in the rain in san mateo county, a

6:04 pm
she said that's the same company. if they are letting it sit on the rain in san mateo, what is going on? dan: i met them in hollister yesterday went to the icu eyewear warehouse and found this. thousands of boxes of ppe stacked high, containing millions of plastic base shields. some of the columns on the verge of collapsing. and forklifts loading them onto flatbreads. i followed the trucks to a nearby recycling center and saw the face shields going to the shredder. >> to throw away ppe, that isss outrageous. i am a covid survivor. this is still a pandemic. we are going into year number three. this is not ok. dan: he took his complaint to his county supervisor. >> i discovered that these masks were being destroyed at the request of the federal government. dan: why would the federal government be requiring this county and this business to destroy face shields in a
6:05 pm
pandemic? >> that i could not answer you. and as i said, there are more questions than answers and the further questions we ask, the bigger the hole gets. dan: icu eyewear ceo kirk hobbs declined to be interviewed on camera or have ever courted phone conversation. -- or have a recorded phone conversation. he told me the face shields are not being shredded on government orders. he said there was no market for that, that his staff look for someplace to donate the face shields and failed. i understand how bad this looks, he said. optically, how wasteful this is. we did not come to this place without trying. we put in a great deal of effort to find a place where they can be used. supervisor gonzales is concerned about eb and destroyed and about the impact on the county's landfill. >> we have an issue right now with our landfill, in that we are at capacity. so does this refuse that is being put in our landfill, does it belong somewhere else and not in san mateo county? dan: by shredding all of that,
6:06 pm
he told me that icu will be able to recoup some of the tariffs they paid it to import the face shields from china. the story tips are coming in. now tomorrow, more ppe's, thousands of boxes, sitting outside yet another location. and if you have something that we should investigate, call me at one-888-i team. or our website. ana: thank you, dan. now to the south they were san jose police are investigating seven pedestrian deaths so far this year. yells -- last year, the city tied its all-time high in traffic deaths. dustin dorsey tells us city leaders believe the solution starts with the entire community. dustin: city of san jose may be on its way to a milestone, but it is a record city leaders do not want to break. three people were hit by a car along the expressway in san jose last night. police say the driver had a green light, get two more lives lost after a record-tying 60
6:07 pm
traffic deaths in 2021. >> it took until march the sixth of 2021 to reach six traffic fatalities. >> this time last year, we had one traffic fatality in san jose streets. and last night, to fatalities where our sixth and seventh. dustin the city of san jose's apartment transposition -- transportation says it is one of the safety quarters, big streets with lots of lanes and high speeds. police say speed was not an issue last night, but it is a point the dot wants to make to residents. >> are asked of the public is to slow down, first and foremost. our other ask us to pay attention and that applies to everybody in the road. dustin: and the accident last night, the three people involved were not using crosswalks to cross the street. in fact, police say that is the case most of the time in pedestrian traffic fatalities. >> i believe all of our pedestrian fatalities this year have been people that were outside of a crosswalk. dustin: the message is pleasing
6:08 pm
as a crosswalk. especially at night, especially on espresso. the city's vision zero task force has $6 billion dedicated to quick build improvements like new signage and signal timing to curve deaths. but city leaders say it alternately comes down to all of us. >> people don't decide to crash the car or get hit, so it is up to everybody to pay attention when they are using the road. >> it's going to take a collaborative effort from drivers, just rinse, us as well. dustin: dustin dorsey, abc 7 news. dan: the howard terminal ballpark development plan could clear important hurdle tonight. the oakland planning commission's meeting right now and is expected to recommend final certification of the environmental impact report. the 3500 page document provides a detailed analysis of this massive 55 acre project. if approved, the city council will likely vote on final certification month. now, a group opposed to the howard terminal project held a protest today. they are taking issue with the
6:09 pm
spending of hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to potentially build this new stadium. >> we are saying that public money should not be going for privatization for a billionaire, who is basically pitting the city of oakland and the city of vegas to the detriment of the working people of oakland. dan: that man was one of about a dozen protesters who gathered outside open city hall this afternoon. rally years are encouraging the city to think -- to reject the final impact report for the proposed stadium. stay with us. dozens of people have already been helped at san francisco's new lincoln center. ana: up next, abc 7 what are you recommending for muscle pain? based on clinical data, i recommend salonpas.
6:10 pm patients like these patches because they work for up to 12 hours, even on moderate pain. salonpas. it's good medicine your heart is at the heart of everything you do. and if you have heart failure, entrust your heart to entresto. it's the number one heart failure brand prescribed by cardiologists. entresto was proven superior at helping people stay alive and out of the hospital.
6:11 pm
heart failure can change the structure of your heart, so it may not work as well. entresto helps improve your heart's ability to pump blood to the body. and with a healthier heart, there's no telling where life may take you. don't take entresto if pregnant; it can cause harm or death to an unborn baby. don't take entresto with an ace inhibitor or aliskiren, or if you've had angioedema with an ace or arb. the most serious side effects are angioedema, low blood pressure, kidney problems, or high blood potassium. ask your doctor about entresto for heart failure. entrust your heart to entresto.
6:12 pm
ama: a new report says accidental overdosees declined in san francisco for the first time in three years. overdose deaths dropped from 700 and 2020 to 650 last year, a seven percent decline. officials say investments in substance use treatment, mental health, housing and other services contribute to the drop. dan: as part of our effort to build a better bay area, we are keeping an eye on programs designed to do exactly that, make things better. yesterday coming to san francisco opened its new linkage center in the tenderloin neighborhood. reporter tim johns spoke with city leaders about the goals of this center. lights of a city filled with tech workers and billionaires, one issue continues to plague san francisco. >> we are facing a drug epidemic that requires us to throw everything we have to stop it.
6:13 pm
tim: as part of the mayor's emergency declaration, on tuesday, a new center was opened in the cities tenderloin neighborhood. having a place where people can go and where we can refer people where they can immediately get connected to a treatment bed, to medical care, is critical. tim: the center is meant to be a one-stop shop for those living on the streets and suffering from addiction. a place that brings together a multitude of service providers for things like substance abuse and mental health care and housing needs. jerry mccoy works with health right 360, 1 of the providers. he says having everything under one roof is key. >> we are able to figure out if i am talking to a guest and funning out with a need, i can then collaborate with other service providers and figure out how can we get the next guest to use other options. tim: officials say the center is having a meaningful impact, assisting 118 people on its very first day. the linkage center is running out its current facility for
6:14 pm
just dashes renting out its current facility for just six months. but there is a chance that it could be suspended -- extended. >> there is potential for this building to be a place where people can get help, access medication, health care, get off the streets. i think that is something that we need permanently. tim: in addition to providing services in-house, average teams will soon be sent out to reach some of the city's most vulnerable relations. an attempt to bridge the gap in the city by the bay. in san francisco, tim johns, abc 7 news. dan: let's talk a little bit more about this. adjourning is now is abc 7 news insider phil. you sought the leakage center first town, what is your -- first hand, what is your reaction? >> it is a good step, but san francisco has done a number of good first steps. the question was whether it is going to do steps number two and number three. we have, it was attractive as an old office building. it has been converted into a place where people can have meals, showers, they can come in and just virtually any state.
6:15 pm
they can stay inside or outside. they are not doing any kind of judgment, they are just trying to get people help. they did over 100 yesterday, close to the same number today. but the real question is what they are dealing with and there is a mental health component, there is a homeless component, but there is also a big drug component. and just so you know to give you an idea as we said earlier in the program, over 600 people died of overdoses in san francisco. that is more than one a day. ok? it is going to take more than just a place to get a warm shower and referral to services to alter that saturday -- staggering number. dan: it's getting close to two a day. as we've known for years and years, and it is gotten worse, issues like homelessness, crime, drug problems. just a few weeks ago, finally after so much publicity and so much of people being fed up, the mayor declared a state of emergency in the tenderloin. how is that going? have you seen any real change since that declaration?
6:16 pm
phil: tell you one thing, you cannot walk through the streets without seeing what you call an ambassador. they have done is hired a number of people in the nonprofit world, they put on a vest and they are out on the streets with walkie-talkies. they are monitoring the situation. i counted 12 on one intersection alone. now, that is the intersection of hyde and eddie and up there, where a lot of drug dealing was going on, that was not apparent today. i tell you something else that i saw today that i had not seen before is that the ambassadors are actually escorting kids from the local elementary school, the tenderloin learning center, to home after school that's out. you know? and on street corners, they have police in squad cars and on motorcycles to make sure those kids are getting back and forth to school safely. now, that is an improvement, but the idea that you would have police escorts for kids to get to school gives you an idea of the severity of the situation. dan: yeah, it does. it is encouraging to see that and sat at the same time. phil: exactly. dan: but hopefully they will be
6:17 pm
able to keep that up and have people out there helping keep order. mayor breed wants to expand police access to live surveillance cameras. what would this do exactly. it is controversial, as we know. and you think it would actually happen? phil: that is going to be the next question. lease enforcement, law enforcement, and in the middle of that is the idea of will you allow police to monitor the area with cameras? there's ideas about this is big brother, this is snooping. but other cities do it and they want to put a tap on the open air drug dealing. board of supervisors is not crazy about the mayor's call for it. she says that they will not pass it, they will put it on the ballot. and it will be decision time for san francisco. so, first step today, we will see with the other steps are down the line. dan: massive shoplifting incident sort of reignited that debate about it. phil, thank you very much. ama: a report says saturday's tsunami caused an estimated 6.5
6:18 pm
million dollars in damage to the senate cruise harbor. the total profit court commissioners to declare an emergency in order to streamline the process to receive disaster funds from the state. the damage caused by the rupture and of an underwater volcano near tonga is far less than the devastation caused by a 2011 tsunami. that title search from an earthquake off the coast of japan caused $20 million in damage to the harbor. dan: all right, let's turn now to a relatively calm forecast. ama: meteorologist is here with that. meteorologist: it is a calm forecast and there is a lack of forecast rain. let me show you a picture from our east bay hills camera as we zoom in towards the berkeley marina area. you can see that fog right overhead. this is what you're going to have to deal with tonight and for the morning commute as we check out live doppler 7. the fog is around near the bay and the coastline. visibility right now down to six miles and half of the bag, eight miles in san carlos, so watch

bay area. moving forward. finding solutions. this is abc news. >> we have introduced you to more than a half dozen families of color in the bay area hit with appraisals they believe was too low and they believe their race is a factor. abc 7 news continues to highlight issues of potential discrimination in the home owning and approval process. ama: our coverage by race and culture of porter has led to federal lawsuits. now a new room work -- report by the national fair housing alliance calling for reforms. julian joins us with an inside
6:30 pm
look at the report. reporter: good evening. this report just released today, given first to abc 7 news. it highlights issues in the appraisal issue that leads to families having their homes valued for less. one of the first steps to tackling the problem with race in the appraisal industry could start by taking a close look at the racial makeup of the industry. when you are looking to purchase a home or refinance your home mortgage, the lending institution you work with hires an appraiser to assure the home value is not less than the loan amount. that is the profession of roughly 105,000 people under scrutiny in this new report. >> we didn't expect to uncover some of the issues that we uncovered. housing alliance on wednesday released what is believed to be the most comprehensive review of bias in the industry to date, spanning 80 pages.
6:31 pm
there have been lots of anecdotes of appraisal bias. what our study shows is that these issues are not one offs. there are some really deep, structural issues and barriers. reporter:reporter: for the last year, i have extensively covered allocations of -- allegations of under appraisal by black and latino homeowners. this report highlights issues around oversight and governance, gaps in fair housing training, barriers to entry into the field and a shocking lack of diversity in the field. an analysis of census data confirms those racial inequities in the appraisal industry, showing that nationally, estimated 86% of appraisers are white while only 61% of the u.s. population is white. the numbers also show hispanic, latino, black and asian appraisers are underrepresented nationwide. the same racial inequities are present in the bay area. in san francisco in the east bay, white people make up 40% of the population, but estimated
6:32 pm
72% of appraisers. the underrepresentation gap is larger for the hispanic-latino community, only 7% of appraisers. asian people, 26% of the population, but only estimated to account for 14% of appraisers for black people, 7% of the population but 4% of appraisers. in the south bay, a percentage of asian appraisers reflects the population, but white appraisers are still overrepresented. there's a double-digit gap for hispanic and latino appraisers and it's estimated only 1% of south bay appraisers are black. >> it is in the statistics you see. reporter:reporter: jim park is the executive director of the regulatory body that commissioned this report. >> not just from a race and ethnicity standpoint, but also from a gender standpoint. the majority of appraisers are male and white. >> when i first started
6:33 pm
appraising, lots of appraisers would ask, who in your family is an appraiser? very quickly, i learned this is a tradition that is often passed down from father to son. reporter: gillian white is the head of collateral at better mortgage, a technology forward home mortgage company. as a black woman, she is a rarity in the industry. she shared her experience to have to change her name to j on her resume just to train. >> but when i showed up, things changed. all of his enthusiasm was gone. instead of conducting an interview, he just kept telling me, you are overqualified and i don't know why you want to become an appraiser. the interview was very short because he never even invited me to sit. reporter: the report out today suggests re-examining barriers to becoming an appraiser that keep women and people of color from entering the industry, like the college degree requirement,
6:34 pm
education hours, and experience hours to obtain a license. >> that presents a very unique barrier for people of color, first of all, who don't already know an appraiser. reporter: the appraisal institute, the largest association of real estate appraisers in the country, provided the following statement, "the report acknowledges that enhanced standards and greater diversity are critical elements in rooting out bias in appraisal, we agree. that's why since 2018, the appraisal industry has worked to recruit and expand opportunities for appraisers of color and women through the diversity initiative and raise ethical standards for membership." the appraisal institute acknowledges there's more work to be done and that change could come in a matter of weeks when an interagency task force created by president biden and led by hud secretary marcia fudge, and domestic policy advisor susan rice, is expected to release a major report identifying root causes and solutions to the under evaluation of properties owned by families of color. >> we have to have a full throttle response from congress,
6:35 pm
from regulators. reporter: hud did release a statement to meet late today on the release of the report saying in part, it applauds the national fair housing alliance for taking up the metal and revealing and addressing bias and inequities, and looks forward to reviewing the studies as hud finalizes its own report that will soon be delivered to president biden. we will cover it all for you here on abc 7. reporting live, julian glover, abc 7 news. ama: thank you so much. you can get in touch with julian on twitter and facebook, and on instagram as well. dan: a heart wrenching story for the families of two pet dogs tonight. two and a half years ago, the families of thor and huckleberry sent their dogs to the care of this man. the families have not seen their dogs since and the man is not saying what happened. this is the latest in a long line of troubling stories concerning the unregulated dog
6:36 pm
training industry. assembly person rebecca borrower -- has plan to reintroduce legislation for oversight on this, but as michael finney reports, so far the tri-valley legislator has not lived up to that pledge. reporter: watching video of her german shepherd thor still brings a smile to the face of lauren myers of watsonville. she simple puppy -- she sent the puppy for training. lauren had hoped he can help calm him down. >> in a month, he would come back to us, have all the basic obedience skills. reporter: she also hoped thor would serve as a therapy dog for one of her children who has special needs. unfortunately, prosecutors say he never returned thor to the family. he told them thor would need extra training and he was not progressing. he then sent the family periodic videos of the training.
6:37 pm
>> good man. reporter: he told the family he had taken thor to oregon to train with other dogs. the one-month planned training extended to three months. lauren said he called her as he was driving back from oregon. then, the call suddenly stopped. lawrence family became suspicious and asked police to check on his welfare. in the course of the investigation, deputies say they learned he also took a -- another dog into his care and also did not return him. ashley king's with the santa cruz county sheriff's department. essentially accused of fraud, embezzlement, and theft of an animal. reporter: he's also accused and other consumer fraud cases that didn't involve animals. >> so he was a scam artist. reporter: he pleaded no contest to six of the charges.
6:38 pm
animal rights activist judy mancuso says we need legislation now to have some oversight of the dog training industry. >> they should be licensed. there should be some bar set for who these people are. are they trained properly or not? reporter: 7 on your side brought this to the assembly woman in 2020. she introduced legislation right before the pandemic that would have mandated oversight by animal control officers of dog trainers. this is what she said them. >> i want to thank 7 on your side for bringing this to us. it's a critical issue in california. reporter: she said the bill had to be pulled due to the covid emergency. she has until friday to submit again to the legislative council. she has yet to make a final decision. meanwhile, the families of huckleberry and thor are left
6:39 pm
not knowing what happened to their loved ones. we asked lauren how hopeful she felt about ever seeing thor again. >> well, i think pretty minimal. i don't know if we will ever get him back. i can hope maybe someone will see his picture and recognize him and maybe they will send him back to us. reporter: michael finney, 7 on your side. dan: let's hope that happens. freedom berg he is currently fag charges for consumer fraud. if you have any information about the dogs, please share it with us and we will get that with us and we will get that informatio family is just very important. she's my sister and we depend on each other a lot. she's the rock of the family. she's the person who holds everything together. it's a battle, you know.
