ABC7 Reporter Shot With BB Gun Fire During Live Broadcast
Reporter Leanne Suter was injured Saturday when she was shot in the hand with BB gun fire during a live weather broadcast near Summit Avenue and the 15 Freeway in Fontana, according to ABC Local.
With the help of a San Bernardino Sheriff's Department helicopter, police on the scene were able to locate a house that was possibly involved in the shooting. Several BB guns inside the house and two boys -- ages 16 and 17 -- were arrested "for assault with a dangerous weapon, which is a felony. They were later released to their parents."
Authorities said they apparently were firing from the home's backyard in the direction where the news van was parked. The news van was hit. Police recovered at least two pellets.
