A few dozen bleary eyed protestors who spent Tuesday night camped on the steps of Sproul Hall vowed Wednesday morning to stay in UC Berkeley’s main square as long as possible, even though UC Berkeley police announced numerous times Wednesday morning that the tent encampment was illegal.
Update, 5:34 pm: More details continue to emerge in the case. According to information released by UC Berkeley at 5:23 pm, UCPD Captain Margo Bennett said that four officers, not three as previously reported, entered the school’s computer lab where the suspect Christopher Travis had gone on Tuesday. Nine people were in the room at the time, in addition to Travis, she said. The Alameda County coroner’s office conducted an autopsy this morning on Travis and a report will be released at a later time. Since the shooting, at least 20 witnesses have been interviewed, she said, and video surveillance footage has been reviewed. The Associated Press reports that Bill Travis, the suspect’s father, sobbed during a brief telephone interview with from his home in Lodi. He said he learned his son had been shot Tuesday night and didn’t want to make any further comment.
