the family of that murdered man is saying that the county coroner's office is giving the wrong last name as part of its identification of the victim and that they do not believe that he was the intended target of this crime. san jose police have arrested 43 year old eric surat and a second man 34 year old michael harris. era in connection with the city's 18th homicide of the year. these individuals were acting in a manner that attracted attention to them by the officers, the paris charged in the murder of 20 year old malik jackson. he was just really hard working kid. i mean, he loved football. i mean, yeah, he wasn't perfect. he had his troubles. yes but he didn't deserve this. jerome day, says jackson was his nephew, he says thursday. the 20 year old was at the hall of justice, supporting a friend in a court. case he says he left that building on west heading and walked to his car on north san pedro. day says that's when shots were fired. investigators
5:01 pm
say jackson was running with serrat on north san pedro street after having been hit by gunfire. i just heard gunshots and nice seen someone run that way, and my kids were crying because they were scared, and next thing you know, we looked that way, and they're covering someone on the grounds. jackson died from his wounds within a block of the veta, mass shooting may 26th. detectives say the crimes are not related. whenever you have that re traumatization and people in the same area, um are are living through it yet a second time, these amazing officers who are keeping their head on a swivel had they not reacted so swiftly at that time, it's very likely that there could have been additional victims. investigators are working to determine the relationship between 08 and herrera and their connection to the homicide victim. day says the shooting may have been retaliation against an unknown in person, and jackson was hit instead. i guess the shooter i guess he had lost his son or something like that. and that was a retaliation, but at the
5:02 pm
same time, just that wasn't my nephew. that wasn't malik. detectives are working to confirm all details and say the crime happened in the middle of the county government center here in san jose, and as such, there could be other witnesses who come forward with information live in san jose, jesse gary ktvu fox two news, we'll head back to you second shooting to happen in that very same area, jesse. thank you. well now we go to san francisco, where police are looking for two men who attacked this ups driver. a viewer sent us this video of the frightening situation that happened near golf and hate streets yesterday afternoon. now it shows that s you be hitting the ups driver first, right there in the middle of the street, knocking him to the ground. the suspect, then punches him several times and tries to seal the package. but as you see in that video, the ups driver manages to get the box back and the attacker takes off, but not before he falls out of the getaway car. the second suspect stops the vehicle and lets the attacker
5:03 pm
in. we are told that the ups driver is expected to be okay. well, now we go to the east bay tonight. we're an amazon delivery driver is accused of violently attacking a customer. it started with an argument and then escalated to that driver punching the 67 year old woman several times. get who's henry lee joins us now live with video of this attack, henry! hey heather. this all began when the victim was wondering where her package was so she asked this delivery woman a couple times and that worker got upset and soon threw punches. this is surveillance video showing two women arguing outside an apartment complex in castro valley. the one on the left is an amazon delivery worker. the one on the right a 67 year old tenant soon this happens that ah. verbal altercation became physical. the amazon worker lets loose attacking the victim when her back was turned, uh, punched her multiple times in the face, ultimately breaking her nose. it happened at this apartment
5:04 pm
complex on center street at about five thursday afternoon. the victim called 911 to report the attack. the amazon worker 21 year old at sell, ramirez claimed self defense, but alameda county sheriff's deputies arrested her on suspicion of battery, causing serious bodily injury and elder abuse. both are felonies. the victim declined to be taken. to the hospital. obviously we can't have our, uh, delivery drivers or people out there in the community, uh, attacking people punching people in the face. doug smith, the complex owner told ktvu, he was told the victim had gotten an alert that a package of hers have been delivered. she went outside, saw the amazon worker and asked where it was. ramirez told her. she get it soon. the victim waited in the lobby for about 15 minutes, came back out and again. asked where her package was. that's when the amazon worker got upset. i believe. the amazon driver said. you're something about your white privilege, and my tenant said you don't need to be a about it turned around and walked away. in this video. you can see the victim pressed up against the glass as she's
5:05 pm
being attacked. totally unprovoked. my tenant was entering the building with her back to the amazon driver when she was attacked, punched multiple times. at least nine times, authorities say and then 1/10 final punch. i started to get up and was punched directly in the nose with another cut, just absolutely devastating. amazon sent me a statement today saying that this incident does not reflect the high standards. the company has towards delivery drivers and said that this individual is no longer delivering amazon packages reporting live. henry lee ktvu fox studios boy, that video really is something henry and to think that that driver was claiming self defense didn't really look like self defense in that video. yes she'll have to offer that up in court. all right, henry lee reporting live for us tonight, henry. thank you. all right. so none of the latest on the coronavirus. state health officials say 52% of california at age 12 and over are now fully vaccinated against
5:06 pm
covid-19, another 12% or partially vaccinated. that's close to 22 million. in all, the state has plenty of vaccines left with the 53 day supply of 6.7 million doses. or fixed 15 vaccinated californians 1 $50,000. today it was the state's first vaccine lottery drawing. it's designed to give vaccine hesitant people in incentive to get their shots. ktvu ezeli rasmus has more on today's drawing and that person resides in unbelievable santa. look at that. against the backdrop of the california lottery set, governor gavin newsom drew the numbers in the states. first vaccine lottery. the numbers represent someone in california who has received at least their first dose of the covid vaccine and has now one of $50,000 cash prize in alameda. you know where alameda is, the people behind the numbers won't know they've won. right away because of privacy concerns. the winners are identified by an anonymous number and the county they live in the bay area was well represented with two
5:07 pm
winners from san francisco, three in santa clara county and one in alameda. there were no winners this time around in sacramento or the central valley. some of these counties do have a larger percentage of the population that are getting vaccinated, and it's another reminder of the importance. of the work we have to do to address those gaps and address some of those disparities. it's not just along racial ethnic clients, obviously its geographic as well. the goal is to give people financial incentives to get their covid shots. next friday, there will be another drawing with 50,000 in cash prizes. then on june 15th when the state fully reopens, there will be a third drawing in the winners of that will get $1.5 million each. california is one of 11 states offering some type of incentive program. we had an all hands call with governors all across the country. tree and governors were comparing contrasting some of their incentive programs. you see some states that are actually incentivizing vaccinations with guns. some states are incentivizing vaccines with shots of beer. ali rasmus ktvu, fox two news.
5:08 pm
more than 168 million americans have now received at least one dose of the covid-19 vaccine. president biden wants at least 70% of adults partially vaccinated by the fourth of july. he says. the vaccines are having a big impact on the economy, helping to get more than half a million people back to work last month. now is the time to accelerate the process. we've been making it now is the time to build on the foundation. we have laid. as the us gets closer to herd immunity, health officials say, vaccinating the rest of the world is a top priority, the white house announced a plan to donate some 80 million doses of unused covid vaccines. the first shipment went out today it was a million doses of the johnson and johnson vaccine to south korea will bear your doctors say the data is clear. not only is it safe for kids to go back to school and summer camps, it's actually unhealthy for them not to, according to data compiled by ucsf. many of
5:09 pm
children's hospital in oakland. there was a 66% increase in suicidal thoughts. last year, the number of kids hospitalized for eating disorders more than doubled and across the state suicides increased by 24% for children under 18, while at the same time adult suicides actually decrease its those statues that have led doctors to conclude it's time to get kids lives back to normal. so joining us now to talk more about this is jeannie noble, an associate professor of emergency medicine and director of response at ucsf. now, jimmy, you wrote in an opinion article in the chronicle today. uh first, let's talk about that. from what you are seeing here. the real danger to children was not really the covid-19 virus or it's not anymore. but the extended virtual learning they're dealing with. yeah, that's right. so kids have not been particularly at risk from covid disease or covid illness. in fact, we had 23 deaths among people under the age of 18 from covid in the state of california. for the whole
5:10 pm
entirety of this pandemic, so 65,000 adult deaths in just 23 pediatric desk. kids are at real risk, though, from depression, anxiety and even suicide and what we did see in 2020 during this year extended lockdowns for kids is a significant increase in the number of kids who did commit suicide. there was a total of 134 kids across the state, which is much, much higher than the number of kids who who died of covid disease. yeah, i wanted to ask you more. about that. why are suicide suicidal thoughts eating disorders linked to kids? actually not going to school. well, this is a correlation and not causation, which means that these numbers are associated, and we can't say that one truly causes the other, but it's quite concerning given that we know that depression anxiety. eating disorders are all related to social isolation. and we know that our kids have had really severe disruptions of their social routines without school kids usually spend the majority
5:11 pm
of their waking hours in school, and we took that away from them for 15 months. so to see this increase in mental health distress, is not particularly surprising. and then the other part of that is that schools are a significant source of referrals to mental health services. so even in the best of times, not getting kids to school is going to keep many kids who are vulnerable and at risk from getting referred to the mental health services that they need, cutting them off from from valuable services. there now. some teachers unions, they're demanding safety measures like plexiglass plastic barriers. face shields, temperature screens, but you're right that the science does not support the need for these things. but wouldn't it be better to have those measures in place? no, it's a great question. so we have known longt schools could be operated safely even before vaccines were on the on the on the scene, so we had great data from. north carolina, wisconsin,
5:12 pm
georgia elsewhere that was simple. masking schools could be operated safely and have close to zero cases of covid transmission occurring in schools without plexiglass without these other without these other measures, now that we know that the most vulnerable people on campus which are the adults are vaccinated or have had the opportunity to be vaccinated. it's really time to go back to normal school routines to let the kids socialized normally. without physical distancing without cohort and in places like california without masks in the fall, the fact that we have such low covid rates now means that the vaccinated population is protecting the unvaccinated just because there was so little virus out there and circulation, so final question here, who ultimately is in charge to get kids back into schools get those schools open? complex question. so the leadership the bully pulpit, if
5:13 pm
you will comes from the california department of public health, and in gavin newsom to really set the tone that schools are safe places kids can be back have normal routines. allow them to really reclaim their childhood. the teachers unions need to decide that they will get their teachers back in the classroom. and so they are the ultimate decision makers there, although we have seen in other states around the country that there have been mandates from the governor's office is to open up the schools if the teachers unions have refused to do so, hopefully that won't be necessary in california, but those are some of the mechanisms that have been used elsewhere. a lot of leers to getting those schools open, aren't there. all right? jeannie noble, associate professor of emergency medicine. and director of cobra response at ucsf. thank you for he did his time and is now a free man, but he's fighting a different battle coming up tonight at 5 30, the new effort to keep this man from being
