TBS Today, Aug. 9

This just in: Police are investigating gunfire at multiple locations across South Berkeley on Wednesday afternoon.

Police believe there may have been "a roving gun battle" in the neighborhood just after 4:30 p.m., according to preliminary information.

No victims have been located but police found numerous shooting scenes.

Here's what we know.

We also wrote about a homeless man who robbed a downtown Berkeley bank and tried to escape on BART this week — who has a long history of bank robbery convictions, according to police and court records.

Convicted bank robber strikes again in Berkeley — arrested
Alden Moore, 57, served more than 10 years in federal prison after a bank robbery conviction in the ’90s, prison officials confirmed.

And we've updated our story (again) about Tuesday's shooting, where a conflict between vehicle occupants and a pedestrian in a Berkeley crosswalk led to what police are calling a road-rage shooting Tuesday night.

Police say a driver, in a red Nissan Versa, failed to stop for the pedestrian who then kicked the car.

Don't miss the latest details.

The gunfire damaged a business on Camelia Street between San Pablo Avenue and 10th Street but no one was hurt, police said.

Now we're running out to a tour of the Berkeley Police Department with some interested community members, assuming tonight's "roving gun battle" hasn't resulted in cancellation.

Stay safe out there!
