Sports Anchor Shot

A San Diego television sportscaster was shot and wounded outside his home, and the man suspected of shooting him surrendered to a SWAT team after a manhunt of several hours. Kyle Kraska, sports director and anchor for CBS affiliate KFMB-TV, was shot in the leg and stomach outside the home in the wealthy Scripps Ranch area of the city on Tuesday afternoon.

About six hours later, 54-year-old Mike Montana surrendered after a SWAT team surrounded a residence in El Cajon northeast of San Diego. Police did not immediately release a motive for the shooting or the relationship between the two men but had said they were seeking Montana, who they called armed and dangerous and said drove from the scene with a white minivan with the logo “Superior Painting” on its side.

Kraska, a Boston native, appears on KFMB’s evening newscasts and hosts its San Diego Chargers postgame show. He has worked at the station since 1999 and has been its sports anchor since 2003. He previously worked for TV stations in New York, Florida, Texas and Los Angeles.
