With his camera rolling, a WFSB cameraman crossed paths with the armed subject of a police manhunt in a Connecticut neighborhood and lived to talk about it.
In the video you can hear the cameraman for the Hartford CBS affiliate yell to reporter Kim Lucey, “Kim. He’s right here.” You then see the suspect, Andrew Samuolis, wearing a bullet proof vest and holding a gun in his hand as he appears from behind some trees. Samuolis sees the cameraman and points the gun at his own head. The cameraman yells, “Shit,” and runs away as the gunman fires a shot. Seconds later several shots can be heard. When the cameraman gets to his van he says, “He fired at me.”
