OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The production company behind the "Cops" television show confirms that a crew member was killed when police opened fire on a robbery suspect.
Police say the shooting happened Tuesday night after officers interrupted a robbery at a fast-food restaurant in midtown Omaha. Police say an officer saw a man robbing the restaurant about 9:20 p.m. and called for backup.
Police have not said what happened immediately before the shooting began or whether the suspect was fatally wounded by police gunfire. But officials are planning a news conference at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday.
No officers were hit, and police said no other suspects are being sought.
Langley Productions spokeswoman Pam Golum says Bryce Dion is the crew member who died.
