KFMB Sports Anchor ‘Critical but Stable’

By Kevin Eck 

Kyle Kraska, the San Diego sports director who was shot Tuesday night, is in critical, but stable condition.

The San Diego CBS affiliate reports, Kraska went into surgery Tuesday night for ten gunshot wounds to his leg and the left side of his stomach.

Mike Montana, the man who allegedly shot Kraska, has been booked on an attempted first degree murder charge. He’s scheduled to be arraigned next Tuesday.

Kraska’s friend and CBS News 8 Sports Producer Todd Villalobos says Kraska met Montana while he was doing paint work for some of Kraska’s neighbors. He hired Montana to paint the outside of his house, but then became dissatisfied with the work. Kraska then paid Montana for the work that had been done and the two agreed to part ways.

Months later, Montana began leaving notes on Kraska’s door that escalated into the confrontation on Tuesday.
