Wanted by FBI, Fugitive Reaches Out to WRC Reporter

After WRC‘s Shomari Stone reported on the case of a man who is currently wanted by the FBI for kidnapping his two children, the fugitive, Faical Chebbi, reached out to the D.C. NBC station and shared his side of the story in an interview via Skype.

KOMO Cameras Record Suspects in Brutal Beating

KOMO cameras captured images of five men suspected of brutally assaulting an elderly man in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood last week, although there was no news crew at the scene of the attack.

The images, which KOMO has shared with Seattle police, were taken by surveillance cameras positioned outside the station’s headquarters.

“We shared that surveillance video with Seattle police detectives to help them out with this case,” reported KOMO’s Shomari Stone last week (video above).

Video: KOMO Reporter Shomari Stone Breaks Up Fight in Downtown Seattle

“Instinct just snapped in,” said KOMO reporter Shomari Stone, explaining why he jumped in to break up a fight in downtown Seattle (video above).

Stone was out on assignment near Seattle’s waterfront when he and his photographer witnessed an altercation between a group of men nearby. One man jumped on top of another and began repeatedly punching him in the head.  That’s when Jones rushed in and tackled the assailant.  He broke up the fight and a witness called 9-1-1.

According to police officers, the man that Stone saved was possibly a white supremacist. When the victim, whose arms were covered in swastika tattoos, approached Stone to thank him after the incident, Stone, who is African-American, told the man, “Remember to judge the man by his character and not the color of his skin.”
