5:01 pm
received the news. it was some of the worst news that i've heard in my career and is the fire chief. i've dealt with a lot of death and a lot of follow members of my department. you know, i've always prayed that we would never have a line of duty death. i never thought that if it occurred that it would occur in this fashion. you can see the emotion there by the fire. you can see the emotion they're being felt by the fire chief as he talks about to the two firefighters who were shot one dead, fire officials say they have not been able to go into the house or approach the body because of the fire and the danger so they are right now at the scene, an active investigation the fire captain
5:02 pm
who was injured went through surgery and we were told in the last update that he is in critical condition, but. doctors say that he is expected to survive the firefighter who was killed, they say had been a veteran of the department for some 20 years, and just a sad, sad situation. all right, jana katsuyama reporting for us tonight, jonathan q. for more now on the situation unfolding in southern california, fox news gina silva joins us now live in the town of acting outside the gunman's home. so gina what is the. latest on the investigation? well, me tell you were an acting. and this is the neighborhood where the suspected shooter lived and did the property that is behind those trees. you cannot see it, but i know that we have footage of it, and this is located about 12 miles from the fire station where the deadly shooting took place. the first call for help came out around 10 53 in the morning. there were four firefighters at station 81 inaug, little say that is about an hour and 20
5:03 pm
minutes from los angeles. there were four firefighters working at the station when an off duty firefighter. from that same location. same station came into the firehouse and opened fire. ah, 44 year old fires. firefighter specialist was shot and killed a 54 year old captain was also shot. he was airlifted to a nearby hospital. he underwent surgery and we have been told that he is listed in critical but stable condition. now, investigators say the gunman then went home after shooting his co workers. and set his house on fire. investigators say they found the suspected gunmen dead inside the pool with a self inflicted gunshot won't of course, the big question is why why would this man shoot his co workers? and that is something that investigators are looking into their interviewing other firefighters and, of course, family members of both of all people involved, and i could tell you that firefighters here are expressing extreme sorrow and just heartache over everything that they've fixed.
5:04 pm
syrians. they say they see death all the time, but never in their own home. and it is just a tragedy that they never, ever expected in their own house. yes oh, no word yet about two guys in the studio. so gina, no word yet on a possible motive. he was off duty wasn't supposed to work today. have you talked to neighbors, people who live in the area. and if so, what are they telling you? you know, we haven't talked. we haven't spoken with the neighbors because we. where a new crew that we just arrived at this location. there is a lot of speculation on social media, and it's taking a life on its own. but it's something that we have not been able to confirm. all we know is that it was an obvious dispute between co workers, firefighters and it led to a deadly shooting and now two firefighters are dead and another one is listed in critical condition fighting for his life critical but stable condition. that is the latest a soon as we get more details, we will definitely let you know, but at the time. the motive.
5:05 pm
that's the big question. why did he do this? just briefly. can you walk us through what's happening behind you now at the gunman's how's it happened earlier today? around 11 o'clock? is it still a very active crime scene? are there a lot of law enforcement. officials on scene where you are? yes you can see that there is law enforcement here behind us. they're not allowing us anywhere near the property, but that property burned down to the ground and, of course, now we learned that day it was burned down to the ground by the suspect himself, and it's a property that it was massive. it was beautiful, beautiful location and firefighters at the time. i opted not to fight that fire and let it burn down to the ground. there's also a lot of concern that there would be explosives there. they don't know what they were dealing with. i mean, after all, this is a person who had just killed a firefighter at a station so they didn't know what they were dealing with at the time and they let the house. sprint
5:06 pm
down, and unfortunately, that's you know, that's the end of that. but again, the big question there's so many questions honestly as to what led to the shooting. what was the involvement of the firefighter who lost his life and also the other the captain who was also shot on is now in the hospital, so as soon as we get more details, we will bring them to you. identities have not been revealed. and you know that's something that they have to wait until they notify all family members. yeah and sadly, strangely similar to a situation we just had in the bay area last week in san jose, were an employee went to his workplace, opened fire and set his own home on fire. gina silver reporting live for us tonight in the town of acting near that scene of that fire station shooting today. thanks for the update. we appreciate it. here in the bay area. deadly police shooting is under investigation in san jose, the

5:35 pm
rates of depression? we didn't start because of the fact that the covid-19 pandemics led to adversity and stress for many people that women they experienced, elevated to process and symptoms. we were surprised by the size of the fire. so, for example, it was almost twice as likely that women were pregnant during the pandemic had possible depression compared to women pregnant prior to the pandemic, and this isn't a big effect size in the context of psychology yet explain a little bit about how you went about conducting this survey. so we recruited women through online advertisements around the bay area, and specifically, we were interested in women who were pregnant on we ended up recruiting over 1000 women, 725 of whom completed all of our questions. you're an online survey. and so they answered questions about their
5:36 pm
experiences of it first need you the pandemic, like whether they have lost their job or whether they're prenatal. cara changed. as well as how stressed they felt about the pandemic. like how worried they were that they wouldn't receive social support when they had to get first, and they responded to questions about their mental health difficulties. and so we really appreciate all the women were able to participate in the study. yeah, because it really does shed a really important line here on the pantomime again pregnant women. how does all of this effect the pregnancy? so we know, of course, that this has direct effects on women, so depression increases the suffering of women and can have tracks on how they function in their life. like. um, their ability to engage with their work and caregiving for their other children. depression also has biological effects. s o, for example, it may be linked to changes and stress hormones and inflammation levels during pregnancy. that could end up
5:37 pm
affecting the fetus. and so while we're continuing to do research in psychology on those questions of how depression during pregnancy affects children, pre nearly. we do know that children who were exposed to stress prenatally are and did you end up in elevated risk for developing mental health problems themselves? okay so now that you show this link to changes in mental health due to the coronavirus response measures, what do you think we should be doing with this data? so first and foremost, i think this shows us that we need to be screening pregnant women and new mothers for depression when they see their doctors, this'll is a really important thing to find out, including things like. your blood pressure and your way we want to know about your mental health so that we can connect women with appropriate resource is. s o, for example, therapy or interventions to help them provide better care
5:38 pm
for their children. if there's depression is having a sex on that. further. we also really need national policies surrounding k family leave and child care so that all parents have the time and energy to recover from this pandemic and provide their children with positive environments. so the good news is that recovery is on its way. and it's possible that many of these women are now feeling a lot better, but it's still important to make sure that we have policies that allow them to thrive. indeed it is obviously this again shining a light on the issue and also showing just how important it is for us to provide help and support. thank you so much, doctor really appreciate your time today. thank you. ah local leader wants to make sure a critical lifeline of diapers to low income parents remain. stocked up during the pandemic, diapers and wipes were available to low income families in our state is part of an emergency supplies program. but that is ending this year today. e space emily member buffy wicks called on
