While hunting for footage of an armed suspect in Connecticut, a TV cameraman quickly became the hunted himself.
Hartford police were pursuing Andrew Samuolis, reportedly wanted for shooting a police officer and murdering his father months ago. An unnamed cameraman with local CBS affiliate WFSB spotted the man walking around in a wooded area, capturing footage of Samuolis holding the gun to his own head.
But as soon as Samuolis spotted the cameraman, he quickly pointed the gun and fired at the TV crew.
“Shit!” the cameraman exclaimed as he retreated to the news van with reporter Kim Lucey. She tweeted during the tense situation:
