Multiple Suspects Arrested After Robbing, Shooting KPIX News Crew
February 24, 2019 at 11:35 pm



OAKLAND (CBS SF) — A KPIX 5 news crew covering the Oakland Teachers Strike was robbed of a camera and tripod by two suspects, one of whom shot the crew’s security guard before fleeing on Sunday evening.

Before 5 p.m. Sunday, reporter Joe Vasquez and photographer John Anglin were gathering interviews for the strike at the Oakland Library near 81st Ave. when they were robbed of their equipment.

The KPIX 5 crew was outside their news van when a car pulled up. Two suspects got out of the car and one pulled a gun on the crew, demanding their camera. The crew surrendered the equipment and then began walking back to the van.

One suspect and the security guard exchanged fire. The guard was shot in the upper leg, transported to Highland Hospital and listed in stable condition.


At 6:56 p.m., Oakland police officers engaged in a pursuit of a champagne-colored Lexus sedan in connection with the shooting. The driver crashed the vehicle into several cars before stopping between Fairfax and Vicksburg Ave. Police detained the driver.

Surveillance video of the pursuit showed the suspect vehicle driving extremely fast in a tight area.

Alameda County Sheriff spokesperson Sgt. Ray Kelly said that around 5:15 p.m., a 21-year-old man walked into Highland Hospital, seeking treatment of several gunshot wounds. Deputies detained the man and Oakland police arrested him in connection with the shooting.

Oakland Police Public Information Officer Johanna Watson confirmed that the department had detained several other individuals in connection with the armed robbery and shooting. As a result, the stolen camera was recovered.

Vasquez and Anglin were said to be OK, but understandably shaken up.

So thankful @joenewsman and photographer John Anglin are safe. Grateful for the bravery of their guard..praying for a Fast recovery #hero #brave #protectjournalists
