tonight from opd. that's right shortly after our story posted this afternoon on ktvu .com. oakland police officials responded to our request for comment, and they told us that some of those officers have been disciplined. now we're still waiting to learn more. for information. it just went crazy. i feel like i wasn't no wars owners. it's okay, pops. sears was one of hundreds of demonstrators who took to the streets of oakland on june 1st to protest the police killing of george floyd. the march was organized by students at oakland technical high school. it was like almost like a fashionable it was. everybody was getting along. the children were out there with signs and it was just a good thing. the crowd faced off with officers in riot gear, two blocks from nopd headquarters. video shows a plastic bottle being thrown at police before they launched gas and projectiles was like turn into a shoot out or something like that. you know
who was just horrific series was struck by one of those projectiles in the chaos. he has since filed a lawsuit against the opd and the alameda county sheriff's office, which was assisting the department's policy bans indiscriminately firing tear gas and projectiles at crowds unless there's an imminent threat of physical harm, then deputy chief laurent armstrong, who's now the chief justified the incident. the next day, officers were still receiving rocks and bottles being thrown as well. last people preparing molotov cocktails sutro force the officers a ktvu investigation at the time. time didn't find any evidence to support armstrong's justification on lee that video of a plastic bottle being thrown what began as a controversy around crowd control tactics has now festered into an issue about police accountability in general activists say that if the opd a serious about reform, it needs to be more transparent. we continue to get lip service about reforms. bay area activist cat brooks is co
founder of the anti police terror project. she said her teen daughter was at the june 1st protest and doesn't buy the department's justification. i want to see the new chief laurent armstrong, who keeps saying that this is a new day inside of opd actually do some things that make it a new day inside of opd in an interview with ktvu after he was sworn in as the new chief, armstrong said the june 1st incident was being reviewed by an outside investigator. i would have investigation is cleared. i'll be transparent with it, and i'll share it with the public. that was almost four months ago, the oakland police department still has not provided the report. it's clear that there were no molotov cocktails on on june 1st. there's they've offered absolutely nothing to back that up. civil rights attorney rachel letterman represents sears and other co plaintiffs. it's clear that there was an overreaction based on the topic of people. coming out against racist police violence. ceres city will continue to press
forward with his lawsuit, hoping it will compel police to act differently in the future. the best acknowledgement that they can give is to change all of this. and again after our story posted online, oakland police responded to our request for comment. they said they'll have more information later this week reporting live evan sernoffsky ktvu, fox two news and evan, i remember that gathering. it was more than 1000. people. did the demonstrator that you spoke with. remember hearing opd, calling it an unlawful assembly and ordering everyone to disperse. and if so, why many of the demonstrators decided to stay right? well that's true. some of them did recall that dispersal order. but if you look at the open seas policy on using tear gas, simply ordering a crowd to disperse doesn't necessarily justify using that
level of force. also if there's young people or elderly in the crowd. certainly of concern and this was, you know, part of a group of high school marchers, a lot of them teenagers, so there's a lot of questions about whether this tear gassing and shooting projectiles was within oh pd's own policy. that's something that the chief chief plans to address this week. yeah, and i remember armstrong, saying that his daughter was actually at that rally. all right, evan sernoffsky really appreciate it. thank you have it. if this happens to a uniformed san francisco police officer, how should your average resident visitor tourist field they should be concerned? it happened in just seconds. the homeless man violently attacks, a san francisco police officer, eventually sending her to the hospital. what we've learned about the suspect and the officer coming up tonight at 5 30. it is a weekend of barbecues and beach days, and sometimes it is easy to forget that. true meaning of memorial

me as an individual who didn't know them. personally you still feel that in the core of your being. the people that died. you know, they gave everything they have on those people deserve to be remembered. marin county veterans held an online memorial day ceremony this morning to pay respect to those who served in the armed forces. the ceremony included an honor guard, the singing of the national anthem and a wreaths, presentation and the playing of taps. all right. it was a hot one to fall. we had numbers in the bay area. they got up to 99 100 degrees. these are some of the current temperatures. you'll see the north. they got some pretty significant numbers or have
them right now. 103 and cloverdale. that's certainly the hot spot, one of three and pope valley napa just 87 so certain there's a little bit of a sea breeze and like i said before, this is a one and done so we typically you get a heat wave like this. it's not away because one day but using it come in threes, sort of my experience. this is going to be a one day deal, which is perfect is gonna cool off a bunch as we head into tomorrow in the next couple of days there some more current high temperatures again like dublin 90 degrees. that's not amazing. how about alameda at 70? that's pleasant, so a nice sea breeze blowing in alameda and oakland, one that creates a 101 no. one in pleasanton. i don't suspect we're going to see any records today. but except up in the central valley who have misstepped let me go back and pick. i think this is the peninsula when he hit that there it is. so yeah, you could see the sea breeze foster city 76. res 87. it's stanford. so it's really this is really all about are mostly about those inland valleys where i said earlier, red bluffs reading those guys are looking at buck six buck a record potential. same with sacramento. merry
fill in those areas. so you see the air quality. not so great right now. that's because all the junks kind of skin squished down by that high pressure, but. august creeping up the coast, the sea breeze has already going it's going to cool tomorrow by as much as 15 degrees, maybe more in many places, so one and done, that's a good way to do it. i'll be back here. we'll look at the forecast ties as we head into tuesday and beyond. yeah, one day of this really hot weather is nice. i don't know if i can handle much more than that. thanks so much bill. appreciate it. well, covid cases they continue to drop in businesses continue to reopen and the country continues to see a spike in crime. the question now is all of it connects. in business, it's never just another day. it's the big sale, or the big presentation. the day where everything goes right.

administered more than 37 million doses of the vaccine. well, tomorrow the state will be just two weeks away from the reopening date meeting. the june 15 goal is contingent, though on sufficient vaccine supply and hospitalization rates remaining low. so currently the state has a 46 day supply of shots and just over 1300 people hospitalized with covid. the covid positivity rate is now at a new low below 1% and just at just 10.7% on the five deaths were reported statewide yesterday and only 644 confirmed new cases. the uptick in covid vaccinations is fueling a rise in tourism as well as crime. so major u. s cities reported a rise in the number of violent incident. it's box news, david lee miller tells us those numbers are leading to questions about how to maintain law and order in a post covid world. more than half of all americans are now at least partially vaccinated in big cities are opening their doors once again as the busy summer
tourism season gets underway, but the re openings are also being accompanied by a rise in crime. here in new york, the former epicenter of the outbreak, there's been a sharp increase in murders, shootings, auto thefts and hate crimes, prompting concerns that the surge could become an obstacle to reviving the tourism industry. crime crime crime. all these people who are running for mayor. my two cents to new yorkers, you're going to pick a new york a new mayor, a mayor who can deal with crime. realistically there have also been a number of widely reported crimes involving tourists. the visitors to the city say the n y p d is out in force, and they're not afraid. that's a heavy police presence. everyone it's just like anywhere else use common sense. we felt really safe here, and it's been a lot of fun. other cities hoping to attract tourists are also reporting a surge in crime, including chicago, atlanta and los angeles. some experts say it is the inevitable result of re openings and more needs to be done to rebuild trust. after a
year of police enforcing covid restrictions there weiss's yeah. between law abiding citizens and police supporters are broken nationwide, the homicide rate increased by about 24% during the first three months of this year. in new york. david lee miller, fox news, although vaccine rates are on the rise they very greatly by age group the cdc shows about 32% of those in the 18 to 24 year old age group have had all of their shots. the number goes up in the 42 49 age group to about 48. it's even higher in the 50 to 64 year old group at 59% the highest rate of vaccines is among those 65 to 74 years old at 76. some very disturbing video. a homeless man takes down a san francisco police officer with his hands around her neck. coming up new information about this attack.
plus, people want to get out for the summer and going to all the things they missed for. ah year if this weekend was any indication, people in the bay area are ready to travel. a look at the projected numbers that show a dramatic bounce back from last year, and he was off before the sun came up on a 70 day journey from marin county. to hawaii and all he has. well just that kayak. they're here. what drives this man to complete this daring frans
caught on video. our crime reporter henry lee is here now, with more on the suspect and how that officer is doing, henry. well, julie, that confrontation sent the officer to the hospital after she was suddenly attacked by a homeless man in chinatown. she's highly his trade as anybody else but a san francisco police officer found herself overpowered by a suspect identified as 33 year old gerardo contreras. things can go from ok to really bad. in a split second, it began innocently enough. i don't have nothing over there around. put your hands over your head, san francisco police union president tony montoya says the suspect initially obeys the officer. but without warning, he just suddenly turned and. violently attacked her without provocation. the officer ended up on her back as the £190 contreras straddles her. he quickly got on top of the officer and put himself in a
position of advantage. and at one point it looked like his hands were actually on her throat. bystanders rushed to help. i want to shake their hands. i want to commend them for their bravery and their actions, the officer regains control and backup arrived. the officer who was assigned to central station was taken by ambulance to the hospital. she was released that same day. she's in all right. marine um, she's got some scrapes, bruises, obviously sore from the incident, the police union says the officer typically works with a partner but was solo that evening because of a staffing shortage. and if this happens to a uniform, san francisco police officer how should your average resident visitor tourist field they should be concerned. less than two hours earlier, contreras was accused of damaging scooters and this is video of him being detained. the female officer who was asian, went to talk to contreras after witnesses said he was ranting at asian people. now the head of the police union tells me he easily could have been planning that officer's funeral. now
that suspect. has been broke on suspicion of assault battery, resisting arrest, false imprisonment and trying to disarm that officer of a less lethal weapon reporting live. henry lee ktvu fox studios. yeah, just like the gentleman said in your piece there if he did that to a police officer, just imagine what he could have done to a average citizen. henry in your story. you mentioned the staffing shortage that that was the reason she was working alone. because of what happened. are there any changes being made? not that i know if i know that staffing shortages and staffing levels are constantly in flux, but we don't know if that was a specific ship the day or usually again, they pair up day or night. all right. henry lee reporting live for us tonight, henry. thank you. the interfaith center at the presidio held its annual memorial day service at the san francisco national cemetery. the service has taken place every memorial day for more
than 155 years. there were speeches, a bell ringing and also a wreath laying ceremony. you know, abraham lincoln said the same thing in the gettysburg address. but he said it people who have who have died of #### of the ground. it's for the survivors to make it meaningful to carry out the goal of fighting for your country, making the country better. 32,000 military veterans are buried at the national city at the san francisco national cemetery there well this memorial day weekend, many people hit the road for a holiday getaway, some for the first time in more than a year. as ktvu marine naylor reports some travelers who decided to fly were surprised by what they found. this is what the roads looked like around the bay area this memorial day weekend. people want to get out for the summer and going to all the things they missed. welcome back to normal by first travel of since covid tripoli expected more
than 37 million people to travel more than 50 miles from home this memorial day weekend up 60% from 2020. in 2019 5.4 million californians traveled memorial day weekend that number plummeted to 2.7 million during the pandemic and was forecast to rebound. a 4.5 million travelers this year, so there's it's really great to get back into what i like to do, which is traveling in the motor on memorial day weekend marks the first time this south bay resident has taken his rv out since 2019 for a trip to pine mountain lake, get an early start and come back either earlier late, so you don't. get caught in traffic. as for those taking to the skies, air travel is also on the rise this holiday weekend compared to last year. the hardest thing was deciding whether or not to be vaccinated. i didn't want the vaccine, but i wanted to fly. mineta san jose airport expected 58,000 passengers
between thursday and monday, which is six times the amount they saw last year, but only about half the amount of travelers seen on a normal memorial day. again, some travelers said when they arrived at the airport, they were surprised by what they found. the airport wasn't as crowded as we thought, but they air the airlines pakistan like sardines on the plane, so that was a little surprising and whether headed to the beach on highway 17 or driving north on 101 this memorial day weekend, there were a lot of cars on the road, another sign normalcy. is returning maureen naylor, ktvu fox two news on this memorial day. police are investigating after american flags were stolen from the los angeles national cemetery at the word, he said. at some point last night or early this morning, a suspect or suspects jump the fence broke in and took several flags. one flag is about 25 ft by 30 ft and would usually take at least three people to carry.
police are canvassing the area for surveillance footage in hopes of idea. defying the suspects, officials say they're astonished that someone would commit this type of crime a specially over the memorial day weekend. every single monument you see here is someone who signed up or, you know, spent some of their life in service to our country so that we can enjoy everything we enjoy today, and tol hurt their final resting place is just to me a nun believable. los angeles police are asking anyone with information about the missing flags to give them a call president biden today march memorial day with a solemn ceremony there at arlington national cemetery. the president stood alongside vice president kamila harris for the traditional wreath laying at the sarah cemetery's tomb of the unknown soldier. as part of the ceremony, president biden
walked up to the wreath and stood before it in silent reflection in remarks that he followed the president called on americans to commemorate the country's fallen heroes by upholding what they died for. we owe them our full best efforts to perfect the union for which they died. may we now dedicate our souls that our work may prove worthy of the blood of our fallen. for this work. the work of democracy is the work of our time. and for all time, the president also remembered his late son beau, saying he felt his presence near on this memorial day. beau biden was a veteran who served in iraq. he died of brain cancer six years ago. marking 100 years since the tulsa race massacre here with oakland congresswoman barbara lee said about the ceremony coming up next and all it took was about 10. seconds for three masked
gunmen to jump out of that car opened fire on a crowd and then get back in the car and drive away tonight. the manhunt continues after two people were killed and another day, another chance. it could be the day you break the sales record, or the day there's appointments nonstop. with comcast business, you get the network that can deliver gig speeds to the most businesses, and you can get the advanced cybersecurity solutions you need with comcast business securityedge. every day in business is a big day.
that city's deadly race massacre, civil rights leaders and elected officials including oakland congresswoman barbara lee took part in the dedication of a prayer wall at the side of the church that survived the riot as many as 300 residents were killed when a white mob attacked the a fluent black section of the town of green wood on this day in 1921, more than 1000, homes and businesses were burned. deluded so we're here to remember to mourn to rebuild equitably and for people we heard about repairing
the breach. the word repair is connected to reparations, congresswoman barbara lee posted photos of the event as well and said quote we must continue to speak the truth about this horrific event and the legacy of systemic racism in our country. a candlelight vigil is separate tonight there in downtown till. so still no arrests in the deadly mass shooting in florida over the weekend. officials say it was the result of an ongoing rivalry between two gangs and they're calling on the violence to end box news. christina coleman has the latest now on the search. we will leave no stone unturned. we will leave nothing behind to bring these shooters to justice. the search is on for three suspects responsible for a mass shooting that left two dead and injured at least 20 people. it happened shortly after midnight during a saturday evening party at a banquet hall in south florida. dozens of people were gathered outside the venue when three gunmen and ski masks and hoodies jumped out of an suv
and opened fire, sending up a roger bullets randomly into the crowd. authorities will the shooting was targeted, but it's unclear if the victims were specifically chosen. we have to be clear about what's happening in the miami dade county. these are acts of domestic terrorism. friends and family are now demanding answers. you all kill my kid, you must buy a grieving father of one of the victims broke down during monday's news conference, interrupting the miami dade police director. authorities are asking for the public's help in bringing the shooters to justice, offering a $130,000 reward for information. miami dade police released new surveillance video of the suspected gunman on monday. it shows three men getting out of a white nissan pathfinder and rushing off camera, then later running back to the car, then running away from the scene. this was the second mass shooting in the miami area over the weekend, a drive by shooting late friday left one
