There were some tense moments Thursday morning as a SWAT team stormed an apartment building in Oakland to evict squatters who had been living there for months without paying rent.
The sweep took place on Vallecito Place across the street from Highland Hospital.
Squatters living in the building have been on KTVU's radar for a year. On Thursday, authorities took steps to legally remove them from the building immediately.
The eviction made for a rowdy morning near Highland Hospital.
On one side, a SWAT team armed to the teeth. On the other, about a dozen unidentified people who said they were unlawfully yanked out of the four-unit building.
