6:04 am
continues. they have not tracked down his killers. i'll tell you all about that in just a few moments. but we're here in front of the san jose police department despite him being shot in oakland's because at one point a big portion of his career. he spent it right here at the san jose police department. i presume the flags are at half-staff because of him. he was here from 2000. one to 2012. he bounced around after that he went to call money, went to hayward pd where he eventually retired actually from the coma pd in 2018 but he love law enforcement. he loved protecting people and that is why he went into security to protect us out in the field. let me show you video of what went down. this was on wednesday at around noon the day before thanksgiving. our crews are in downtown oakland on 14th and oakland working on a story when a couple of suspects jumped out of the car, tried to rob our crew of equipment. kevin was there. kevin, the
6:05 am
shooter. he jumped into action. and unfortunately he was shot twice. we understand that he was pretty bad where the oakland police officers. they came to the scene. they saw. they recognize that he was one of them. they put him in the back of a a squad car and rushed him to highland hospital where he underwent surgery and james it rocked the media in the bay area on saturday because we all thought he was on them. and i found out on saturday morning that he had died. i couldn't believe it because i actually texted him on friday saying if you need anything, i'm there for you. now i know why he did not respond. here's video or picture, i should say, provided to us by the oakland police department of what they believe is the getaway car. it's a 2004, 2, 2008 acura tl with that. no license plate in the front. there's a sunroof as well. hopefully you will recognize it and let investigators know, by the way, guys oakland was actually where he started his career

6:07 am
is jolly like him, right when they love what they do. they're not doing it for money. they're doing it because they love it because they want to protect you will right and you're out there doing your job because you want to protect the community. >> i mean, if we can't be safe doing these stories. we can help bring attention to what needs to be fixed in the community to save people from the very crimes were trying to cover. >> it goes to show how much she are we meant to him because he easily could have let the robbery go down. this is me. speculating but knowing kevin for the limited time that i did know and we hit he we hit it off right away. good friends. we texted each other from time to time share the fact that he jumped into action because he saw our crews in danger that speaks volumes about this man's bravery absolutely. and this is one time. where will you know what? >> like when you talk to a family after a terrible thing happens. you're allowed to
6:08 am
speak. you're allowed to give your opinion because you have been affected by this. let's not talk to you as a reporter, you know. but as a as a kron 4 family member who's lost somebody that meant a lot to us. and i know that you probably want, you know, the killer to be caught and also to just safe. stop. how about draw the line? haven't don't kill people. it. they want a camera. i mean, this has been happening for years. where were you guys in the field are a target because they want a camera and they're willing to kill somebody to get one. >> it's a dangerous job. i mean, we're used to getting yelled out. we used to verbal assaults were used to people calling us fake news. but at this stage now, especially in the bay area. you leave your house being on the field. you don't know if you will return. we've been stressing that to our boss is we've been it's the other crews also use the same agency because it's a whole new day in bay area coverage. and we've were
6:09 am
fearful of the state. and unfortunately it has come. and like i said, i literally tech alum save. i'm going to say that text, you life, but i did text him on friday saying, hey, if there's anything you need. i mean, i figured that he was medicated, but maybe even to the point where he could respond and unfortunately when i found out on saturday at around 7 in the morning that i know why he never responded and know we were all we were all surprised because we thought he was going to recover animals. >> it's a tragedy. thank you so much. well, for your perspective this morning on this end and also what crime is doing is we've got a fun because want to help kens family. >> so donations to his if you would like be made to the kevin issued a trust. it's been set up at the metropolitan bank in oakland donations can be made in person or you can send it via mail information is on your screen there. but don't where we also have it on our website at kron 4 dot coms. you can look it up at a later time. if that's more convenient for you. but please help out his family and donate if you can. i. >> and sorry if you think i'm
6:10 am
on a line for getting so worked up about it. you know, when you think about and i don't know what and more and more danger. it seems every and that's i don't know what the number is. it's a 15070 i know she's covering oakland crime. yeah, this has got to stop. and they're hearing that from not just us but from community members. the local everyone who's lost. someone is saying the same thing. yeah. in fact, over the weekend we did have another. >> killing in oakland. and as daria said, sarah has been following that part of the story for us, too. and some the other crimes we've seen. >> leading up to this point. and sara, we have to be able to cover these crimes because if nobody covers it and nobody cares. that's why we're out there. >> exactly. and it is so devastating that it just continues to happen. and even when we do tell stories about a 23 month-old in a 15 year-old and then of course one of our own. it still continues to happen. oakland police, of course, with their hands full. they are now announcing they have several tactical team supporting
6:11 am
patrol officers who are responding to these types of the violent crimes that we have seen continued to happen across the bay area. police say these teams are highly skilled in de escalating incidents. the police department has their hands full. as i said with this continued violence and then think about all the ongoing investigations that they have. and as we're just talking about, it's hit extremely close to home here at kron with our own security guard. kevin nishita shot and killed while with our own news crew. so hitting that close to home. and then just hours later, the police department announcing this new tactical team and then another deadly shooting shooting happening. this time at lake merritt sunday afternoon, broad daylight 3.30, police say a man was shot and killed while trying to stop someone from breaking into his car on grand avenue. another big problem, car break-ins. police say the man was taken to hospital. but but but died later from his injuries. they say the shooter fled from the scene in his own car. a $10,000 reward is being
6:12 am
offered for information leading to an arrest added to the list of investigations where police continue to look for the shooter responsible and these violent crimes are affecting young lives. look, this is 15 year-old new shoes are shameria. she was in the car with her uncle on october 6th when he her uncle got into a road rage incident with another driver that led to her being shot and killed. no arrests have been made. and before that. as i was saying, 23 month-old jasper. wu was shot in the car with his mom in oakland by a gang-related gunfight on 8.80, no arrests have been made in that case either. now as ari was saying, how many people have been killed by gun violence. 127 in oakland just this year. and as ari was saying, it has got to stop because it is horrible to see especially young lives innocent people and their shot and killed all in oakland. so hopefully the can get this under control. get this
6:13 am
violence to calm down. james darya. alh right. thank you so much sara. alright, 6.12 is the time. and we've got another story in the east bay of violence in oakley, a 13 year-old. >> was arrested for carjacking after leading police on a high-speed chase. the police say the car was actually stolen in oakland and then spotted in adding this was early yesterday morning. police were told that the teen had guns on him. and so they responded with force the boy led them on a chase that ended in oakley. the boy ultimately crashed on main street and was taken into custody and he'll be facing a trial now for that carjacking. >> 6.13. now let's switch gears because another big story that we're following as a coronavirus, you've probably heard there's that new variant kron. it started in south africa. but it could be here in the u.s. already. it's just we don't test enough to know. and the big worry is that it could spread quicker and it may even be more resistant to vaccines. so far no new cases of the variant has been
6:14 am
detected in the u.s.. but that doesn't mean it's not here. >> doctor anthony fauci says we should be prepared for the worst. and he says how we need to prepare is. well, they have the travel ban to kind of put a pause on things and catch up and get more people vaccinated. and fauci says especially get boosted. i don't think there's any possibility that this could completely of aid, any protection by it may diminish bit. but that's the reason why you both. why you boosie says this is why you need to boost now he says it's going to take about 2 weeks to know how the variant is reacting to the current vaccines that we have protecting us this strain of virus, though, has already spread to other countries and they too have started various restrictions to parts of africa and you know, and and not letting other visitors common cross and everything else because they're trying to figure this out as quickly as they can. in fact, president biden is going to address the
6:15 am
nation about the variant this morning. so make sure that you keep the tv on. if you're around the house. i know it's only 6.14, but it's i'm going to happen sometime in the 8 o'clock hour is going to be important to know how the nation is going to react to this. we will bring that to you. no doubt about that. 6.15. is the time. we'll take a quick break. still ahead on the kron 4 morning news one bay area community now plans to protest one of the vaccine mandates for school children will tell you why they say. >> the school district shouldn't be enforcing that mandate. meanwhile, the french bulldog is stolen at gunpoint in the east bay. we'll tell you what police know so far in their investigation of that. and after the break, congress also running out of time to avoid a government shutdown will tell you what

thanks for right. so we've been following this accident along 8.80. >> northbound just south of road here in oakland. so keeping a close eye on that. and those delays that were seen in connection with that accident. >> a little under 17 minutes of traffic is starting to pick up here along the bay bridge. >> as you're heading from the east bay into the city, traveling from crockett down towards the maze a little under 20 minutes for your drive. the air heading across towards the peninsula. little under 14 minutes via the san mateo bridge. we also have a traffic hazard out here. this is in san mateo county eastbound 92 just east of 35 here. looks like it was a a wrong-way driver they had to shut down all the lanes in this area. so we are keeping a close eye on that. we'll have look at your traffic. coming up, a dorian james, back to you. thank you very. >> so happening today in congress, lawmakers are going to return to work and their top priority will be to avoid a government shutdown. congress passed a short team, a short term funding bill back in october. that expires on friday. and if the government
6:22 am
shutdown happens, the hundreds of thousands of federal workers could face furloughs. but essential workers like tsa and other federal law enforcement. they will be forced to work. but they won't be getting a paycheck. the last government shutdown was back in 20 19. and in that case it lasted 35 days. let's hope it doesn't get to that point. time. now 6.21 and jury selection starts today in the trial of actor jussie smollet. he's accused. >> of staging a hate crime when he reported that 2 masked men attacked him in downtown chicago in january of 2019. >> his story drew skepticism with detectives who couldn't find any surveillance video of the attack. >> and then turned out they charged him with lying to the police and setting the whole thing up key witnesses in this trial are a pair of brothers who say that jussie paid them to stage the attack. it's 6.22. and still ahead, a home in walnut creek targeted by vandals multiple times. at first they thought it was a prank. but now they think they're being targeted because

house says president biden is monitoring this new strain very closely and talking to top us health officials who say they are considering all precautions but also saying a lot is still unknown. >> president joe biden returned to the white house on sunday to meet in person with members of his covid-19 response team and chief medical advisor doctor anthony fauci about the new covid-19 on the kron variant. we just really need to. >> as i've said it so often prepare for the worst. doctor fauci said on abc's this week that the new strain has not been detected by health officials in the u.s. but as we all know, when you have a virus that has already gone to multiple countries. inevitably it will be here. doctor fauci says it will take approximately 2 more weeks to know if the variant is resistant to the current covid-19 vaccines. i don't think there's any possibility that this could completely of aid, any protection by it may diminish bit. but that's the
6:34 am
reason why you boost director of the national institutes of health. doctor francis collins said on fox news sunday that there is concern because the new variant has a record number of mutations like 50 of them and more than 30 of those in the spike protein, which is the part of the virus that attaches to your human cells. if you get infected that is new record in terms of the number of mutations it does make you worry. still colin says he is encouraged that the vaccine has proved to be effective against other variants of the virus given that history. we expect that most likely the current vaccines will be sufficient to provide protection and especially the boosters will get that additional layer of protection. the president is scheduled to update americans on the new variant and the administration's response just before noon today from the white house. now in washington. wiernicki, back to you. >> and 6.34 and happening today. community members plan to protest against vaccine mandates from the west contra
