12:02 pm
day, possible retaliation. can you go into that? >> sure. when a young person is killed in a broad daylight situation it sends a pronounced message to him and his associates. we brace for retaliation if something like this happens. we have ceasefire partners that come together. they are here going door to door to try to just keep making sure that everybody's not gonna overreact, have a retaliation or anything. it reassures people that there is a decisive response when violence like this happens. >> reporter: we talked about the school under lockdown. what's going on there and what's happening there? >> they heard the shots because of how close they are. we don't think the suspect ran towards the school. in an abundance of caution we locked the school down. >> reporter: thank you very much. once again, of course, officers will be out here all day long. we will stay on top of this all

with any of these shootings. the chp says there are a couple of big issues for investigation. many of the victims are not cooperating. on top of that, there are very few witnesses to these crimes. so far there have been seven car to car shootings along this particular stretch of interstate 80 between about pinole and berkeley since late last year. the latest shooting, it happened early saturday morning. that's when someone opened fire on a jeep suv near hilltop drive. the driver of that suv was hit several times and it veered off the freeway and the jeep rolled down a steep hill where it came to rest. the 40-year-old man who was hyped the wheel died at the scene. the chp believes saturday's shooting, like all of the other recent shootings, was a targeted attack, possibly the result of an ongoing gang feud. still, drivers we talked with this morning are growing concerned. i talked with one woman who
