WSVN Crew Caught in the Line of Fire

A WSVN reporter and photographer covering a fatal shooting in Miami were caught in the line of fire when more shooting broke out at the scene yesterday.

Early Thursday morning, a drive-by shooting occurred in the violence-plagued Liberty City neighborhood, leaving one dead and three injured. Reporter LuAnne Sorrell and photographer Ken Tolliver were doing a follow-up story on the shooting when gunshots rang out on Thursday afternoon, just feet from where the WSVN crew was working. Luckily no one was hurt.

Sorrell and Tolliver were able to capture footage of the gunman as he fled the scene. The above image shows Sorrell pointing in the direction of the man as he covers his face from the camera. (WSVN video here). [h/t Florida News Center]
