poi. those are snapshots of the homeless count taken back in february, and this year's numbers are more significant than usual. that's because they haven't been taken across the bay area since 2019 because of the pandemic. ktvu tom baker has an update now on the homeless situation in alameda county. though alameda county's homeless problem is spread far and wide from its inner cities to outer handless. oakland is the focal point with its many obvious tent villages we experienced as a county 22% increase in homelessness over the course of the last three years. this percentage includes people who were able to find shelter beds and emergency shelters for which
5:14 pm
funds were available in human terms, though the count showed alameda county with 9747 homeless of which 7100 and 35 were sheltered and living on the streets, under freeways and in wood and parklands. overwhelmingly they live in tents, cars or bees. but it could have been a whole lot worse. how significant um it is that we've been able to stave off a catastrophic increase in homelessness during this time of the pandemic, all that federal, state and local emergency rental aid eviction moratoriums. mortgage and student loan forbearance really helped prevention funding and in eviction moratorium that we believe really staved off a much more traumatic increase in homelessness. pre pandemic, alameda county homelessness was increasing by 20% a year during the pandemic, it decreased to about 7% a year. so it is fair
5:15 pm
to say that without all those relief funds homelessness would have increased by at least 60% overall, probably a whole lot more and a direct reflection of the additional resources that were infused into our system. we know how much more we need to do to try to dramatically reduce homelessness. according to alameda county experts. the most hard hit are african americans over represented in the homeless population compared to their percentage of the county's population. add to that lack of affordable housing and the inability to provide quick housing solutions. these issues must be addressed long term to reduce homelessness to a manageable problem. not a chronic, never ending one. tom vacar ktvu, fox two news. san francisco was the only bay area county in a five county region that actually saw a dip. in its homeless population in
5:16 pm
the preliminary data shows, san francisco now has more than 7700 on housed residents, and that represents a 3.5% drop since 2019 contra costa county at a 35% jump, and as tom mentioned alameda county at 22% increase, marin county is almost population increased. 8% and santa clara counties grew by 3. in contra costa county. homeless figures have spiked significantly since the start of the pandemic, and officials are pointing to the severe shortage and affordable housing figures show nearly 3100 people are in shelters or sleeping outdoors on any given night. that is compared to roughly twenty three hundred three years ago. county officials say the housing crisis , which has only gotten worse during the pandemic, is driving those numbers up. they note that renters in contra costa county need to earn more than $3700 an hour $37 an hour to afford the average asking rent. of constant $2000. a month account also found the number of homeless people in tents and cars in san francisco dropped 15% compared
5:17 pm
to 2019 mayor london. breed says the decline is due in part to shelter programs aimed at getting people off the streets. this is just another example of working together with federal, state and local resources and our nonprofit partners. how we can make something great happened for people. and this is important work as we all know, because the last thing any of us wants to see is someone sleeping outdoors. mere breed also says the numbers show good progress, but the city still has a lot of work to do. also the city of san francisco opened 160 new units of supportive housing on mission street today. the project includes 40 multi bedroom units for families and 120 units for adults with histories of homelessness. some funding for the purchase of the property came from the states home key program since july of 2020. the city says it has added nearly 1500 new, supportive housing units. fire investigators have

5:32 pm
stunned disbelief and from listening to orange county sheriff don barnes earlier today in a briefing. this could have been so much worse as it was. one person is dead and five are wounded, including a man who is 92 years old, but it was the heroics of one member of the congregation, a doctor named dongcheng. john chang, who charged the gunman as he was firing. knocked him to the ground. and then when you got shot himself and was killed, and then when the gunman stood up and was reloading, the pastor literally hit him with a chair and other congregation members rushed forward. and subdued him and held him until the orange county sheriff's came all this happening in the social hall at the church behind me, the churches still taped off. people are coming back slowly to retrieve the cars they had to abandon as they were evacuated yesterday. nobody wants to talk about it. the suspect was taken into custody. he is going to be arraigned tomorrow and again.
5:33 pm
they're saying it was a politically motivated hate crime. against taiwan because this is the time when he's congregation. and phil. we know that the suspect is from las vegas. do authorities are they saying did he have any ties to this specific church or any reason why he picked this church to target? you know, that is one of the unanswered questions. among many we ask the sheriff about that this afternoon, and they said that this point their investigation shows that he drove here from vegas on saturday, not clearly spent saturday night came to this church sunday afternoon. no known connections to this specific church or to anyone. any congregation members here, it's possible. this is just the first specifically taiwanese church on the road from vegas. although you know that that's you know, we have to check the check the geography on that because this is pretty far south as you go down from los angeles towards san diego. um so we don't know why he picked this
5:34 pm
particular church, but apparently this was well planned out. they said he had two handguns 29 millimeters semiautomatic that he purchased legally in nevada in years past and then frighteningly. he had four incendiary devices. homemade incendiary devices similar to what they described as molotov cocktails they already placed inside the building, and then he chained the doors up. put super glue in the locks, so you can imagine the scenario he had bags of ammunition that they found. imagine the scenario where a gunman with two semiautomatic handguns, ammunition and then these molotov cocktails, and then the doors chained. whether he was prepared to die along with the congregation or not, we don't know, but they were saying that 40 or 50 people were here yesterday afternoon so you can just use your imagination and see how much worse this could have been. yeah it is incredible when you hear about the lengths that he went to try to lock the parishioners inside and try to prevent authorities from getting inside and fill this
5:35 pm
congregation is an elderly congregation. we've heard. it's just incredible. the courage that this doctor chang went to tackle the gunmen and then others were able to then tie this man up. what else are you hearing about that? well dr chang. i believe he's in his fifties. he's not a regular member of the congregation. he was here with a friend. they were honoring the pastor who we just spoke with with another crew. we're going to have more on that tonight, and hopefully we can get some of that to you. so chang just made this heroic charge at the gunman was shot and then when the gunman paused to reload, the pastor, i'm told took a chair whether it was a wooden chair or metal folding chair. and hit the gunman with it knocked him down and then other members of the congregation rushed forward and i believe they used like an electrical cord to hog tie him was the word that law enforcement used. and then subdued him, and it was just a matter of minutes before the orange county sheriff's response and they took over and then the
