12:01 pm
plaza. that's where we are right now. that's where one part of this scene is unfolding. actually, if you take a look here, you can see that the alameda county coroner's vehicle is on scene here right behind there. there is a burgundy suv that has pulled off to the right side of the road. so we are at this point waiting for the alameda county coroner to remove the decedent. from this scene. we clearly are not going to show that to you. but there is a secondary scene and that we have some video of let's go and show you that video right now and just about a quarter mile. east of where we are standing right now, as you approach the toll plaza from 80, there is another scene which may be where this shooting actually occurred, and we saw a number of evidence markers on the freeway there and patrol vehicles protecting that scene. it appears that the victims of that shooting may have taken the very first available exit again. that is that exit that we were just explaining to you, which is an access road to the bay bridge toll plaza. we can also see
12:02 pm
investigators here on scene, talking with at least two witnesses from two different vehicles, a white pickup truck and the burgundy suv where we saw the decedent earlier. both witnesses have now. left the scene and we are waiting for an official statement from chp. but again, it appears to have been a fatal shooting on the 80 approach to the toll plaza going westbound. investigators are at two scenes here now at this point again. we're waiting for word from chp. so at this time, there is no word on any suspect vehicle on exactly how this incident occurred at around shortly before 10 this morning. also no word on whether this was a targeted incident or whether this was an accidental incident again. a lot of questions outstanding for chp, but what we do know is that this appears to have been a fatal incident, the victim may have been able to drive here to this day. bridge toll plaza access road up

12:05 pm
it all over again, is they're not going to. it's not consistent as well as the logistical challenges of driving their kids to a different campus. it's bad enough that due to covid, they have a shortened bail schedule, which means financially for me to put the string because i have to take shorter hours at work. if i have to go to an outer district school are out of the campus. i might as well just not work. it's just not going to be feasible for a lot of appearance. a school district spokesperson did confirm that they don't expect any teachers or staff to lose their jobs with these closures because they said, they're already short on staff district wide. the district is confident they will be able to find jobs for the educators and staff members. at other schools in the district next year. live in the newsroom. ali rasmus ktvu. box two news, ellie. thank you. wilson kaiser health care workers in the bay area, joining a protest today and tomorrow with striking kaiser engineers. there was a picket line outside the kaiser facility in oakland this mornin. engineers happened on strike for the past two months over contract negotiations, the kaiser employees taking part in
