KCTV News Crew Robbed at Gunpoint

By Chris Ariens 

Around 9:30 Sunday night, a news crew from KCTV was robbed at gunpoint as they were preparing a story for the late news.

According to the Kansas City Star, 3 men wearing dark stocking caps yanked open the news van’s front doors and stole the crew’s cellphones and wallets. The suspects took off on foot. Kansas City police arrested 3 people around 3 a.m. and recovered the stolen items.

Ironically, reporter Eric Burke was putting together a story on gun violence surrounding the 3-year anniversary of the Sandy Hook massacre when the crime occurred.

KCTV did not report the story. But their website picked up the Kansas City Star report.
