Two Television Crew Robbed During Live Telecast

LNS,

The TV crews reporting an incident of the shooting death of woman, were robbed at a gun point in San Francisco on Thursday morning. Two crews were robbed and a cameraman was injured in the incident.

Television crews of KTVU and KNTV were robbed, while they were covering a shooting death at the Pier 14. A woman was shot to death at the scene on Wednesday evening. The crews were preparing to broadcast when robbers attacked them. The cameraman of KTVU was pushed to the ground and gun-whipped by the robbers during the live broadcast of KTVU at around 6 a.m. The cameraman, identified as Alan Waples, was hit in the side of the head.

The suspects didn’t open fire at the crew, but an ammo magazine was dropped from a gun at the scene. The other crew members were not injured in the incident.

The robbers took two cameras and two tripods from both the news crews and fled in a black BMW 7-series.

The incident was not broadcast, as KTVU crew cut off the coverage when the reporter said that an incident has happened.

On Wednesday a 32-year-old woman was shot to death at the same site. The police arrested the suspect some distant away from the crime scene, and are interrogating him.
