a san francisco hospital put on lockdown tonight after a gunman climbs to the sixth floor of a construction site and appears to open fire. streets are shut down. the s.w.a.t. team rushed in. good evening. i'm dan ashley. >> and i'm ama daetz. the shooting happened at a hospital that st. luke's hon s. building at its current
9:01 pm
location. >> katie mars yooulo is live from valencia and cesar chavez with more. katie? >> reporter: dan, ama, police still have cesar chavez here shut down in front of the hospital and the hospital is at least still partially on lockdown but i've been able to speak with people who have since been released from the building. they described for me what they heard, gunshots, loud bangs. some say it sounded like explosions. but here's what we now know happened from the police department. this all started in san bruno, where police say the gunman robbed a big 5 sporting goods store and stole a rifle and some ammunition. and then at about 4:30 he somehow got into the hospital construction site with both the handgun he used in the robbery and the rifle. now, a construction worker has told abc 7 news that he saw the man, he looked suspicious because he clearly wasn't a construction worker and he also thought he saw a gun so, he called 911. the police chief says when officers arrived the man appeared to be firing shots. >> upon arriving they exited their vehicles, looked up and
9:02 pm
atop the construction elevator was the suspect, and it appears to be white coveralls holding a rifle. the rifle was directed at the hospital. officers directed their firearms at the suspect, who then lowered the rifle, pointing it down below. three officers fired, neutralizing the suspect. the suspect is deceased. police did search for other possible suspects but now believe the dead man acted alone. he's described as being in his late 20s, and we know no one else was hurt. police say the man appears to have driven from san bruno to the hospital and it looks like they have identified his vehicle, a white pickup truck here at the scene. live in san francisco, katie marzullo, abc 7 news. >> witnesses described a frantic scene as police rushed toward the suspected gunman above a busy street during rush hour. we spoke with a woman who was riding in a lyft car at the time and a st. luke's doctor who was told to stay inside her office. >> we were one of the only cars
9:03 pm
actually on that side. i saw probably seven or eight cops running next to st. luke's with their guns out. saw a man standing on the top -- i guess it was an elevator shaft from what i'm hearing. and he had a huge rifle. >> so there's not much for us to do except sort of stay here and wait. i was talking to one of the security guards, and as far as i know they're sort of just wrapping things up. >> one of the witnesses added that police urged people to move away from the hospital as they ran with their guns drawn. now, stay with abc 7 news for continuing coverage of this story. we'll have the very latest tonight at 11:00 over on channel 7 live from the scene and you can get updates anytime on twitter @abc7newsbayarea. the clock may be running out to keep the raiders in oakland. mayor libby schaap made a pitch to keep the team in oakland. >> mayor could not have been more positive, more

9:05 pm
>> trying to get this project in carson. he's hired carmen policy, one of the best executives in the nfl, and he comes out with the disney money behind this project. >> reporter: abc 7 news spoke with carmen policy by telephone. >> it's truly a game changer as far as the nfl is concerned. they have bob iger involved with our entry into the l.a. market. if in fact the league approves us as the team to go to l.a. >> it might be difficult, though, for davis to convince the nfl the raider fan base is dwindling in oakland. a key component in the league's relocation process. >> touchdown. >> the team now has more than 40,000 season ticket holders and the next three games are sold out. >> and that was laura anthony reporting. iger will be paid just a dollar a year as chairman of carson holdings but he'll have the option to acquire a minority stake if the stadium bid is successful. a former inmate in the santa clara county jail who says he

9:10 pm
was being chased. >> it's traveling at a high rate of speed on a residential street like this. officers tend to cancel the chases. because you have to weigh what the benefit is. >> reporter: in this case that benefit might be somewhat dubious. from richmond, wayne freedman, abc 7 news. people in los altos are cleaning up tonight after this truck slammed into a home on marvin avenue. here's a look at the back end of the flatbed truck and here's a close-up look at the truck front. the santa clara fire department tells abc 7 news the driver was taken to the hospital. no one in the home was hurt. a jetblue flight from boston to san francisco was diverted twice to reno for mechanical problems in less than 24 hours. it was diverted once yesterday. and when pilots tried to fly to san francisco again this morning they were forced to return to the reno airport once again. another plane was flown in, and the passengers finally did make it to sfo safely. it wasn't immediately known how many passengers were affected or
