Suspect in Shooting of CA Sports Anchor in Custody
The man who allegedly shot a San Diego TV sports anchor has been taken into custody, according to authorities.
Police are trying to figure out why Mike Montana shot CBS affiliate sports director Kyle Kraska outside Kraska's home Tuesday evening.
Montana, 54, was taken into custody several hours after the shooting, following a brief standoff at a residence in El Cajon, California.
William La Jeunesse reported on "Happening Now" that considering Montana fired nearly a dozen shots at close range, Kraska, 48, is lucky to be alive.
After three hours in surgery to remove bullet fragments from his leg and stomach, Kraska is in stable condition, La Jeunesse reported.
La Jeunesse said the shooting occurred when Kraska was pulling out of the driveway at his home. A man in a white minivan with the words "Superior Painting" on the side pulled up, got out and fired multiple shots into the rear window of Kraska's vehicle.
Neighbors came outside to see the van speed away as Kraska lay on the ground screaming, "Oh my God!"
Within several hours, authorities surrounded the shed Montana rented. He surrendered with his hands in the air, wearing a beanie and a paint-splattered sweatshirt
San Diego Police spokesman Scott Wall said, "We were able to get a very dangerous suspect in custody relatively quickly. Nobody else was hurt."
Prosecutors this morning booked Montana on attempted murder charges.
La Jeunesse said the big question now is why Montana shot Kraska.
