NBC News White House Producer Back at Work Following Shooting

An NBC News White House producer was among two women shot in an incident in Northwest Washington D.C. early Saturday morning. NBC News says Shawna Thomas was grazed by a bullet in what appears to be a random shooting.

“There is an ongoing case, and she is working with the police,” an NBC spokesperson says. “We are grateful Shawna was treated and released soon after being admitted to the hospital, and we ask for respect for her privacy.”

WUSA reports the second woman was shot in the chin. Neither was able to provide police with a description of the shooter. Thomas has been on the White House beat since 2011. Before that she was a producer on Capitol Hill, an associate producer and a politics assignment editor. She joined NBC News in 2006 as a news associate.
