Hope I got some bad info, but I don't believe the camera man made it either...

Sad.

Before or after this type of event I have never understood why having this show in your city was a good thing.

Someone pointed out earlier on another thread, having COPS in your city is not a good thing.

National news to follow:

'Cops' TV show staffer shot during taping of armed robbery in Omaha

LA Times wrote:In audio of the police radio call posted by @MeanStreetsOMA on Soundcloud, an officer can be heard describing a suspect in a "black hoodie and a white bandana" and additional patrol cars are dispatched to the location.

At one point a male voice reports: "We have one of the 'Cops' guys has been hit by gunfire; we need a squad here now." Another male voice urges, "We need multiple squads, two squads."

A short time later, a man says, "We've got a 'Cops' cameraman hit, white male, he's not conscious, he's slightly breathing."

The police chief said something to the effect of wanting to show off OPD's professionalism to the country.

Bullet Hole from inside the old Ashley Lynn's hair salon. Luckily after the switch to Palm Beach tan, the Hair Salon is no longer used.

Update: 'Cops' TV show crewman dies after being shot during Wendy's robbery, law enforcement officials say.


Apparently the suspect only had an air gun, so the crewman was shot by 'friendly fire'.

The COPS crew member has died... The robbery suspect had an airsoft gun, 30 shots were fired, all by the police. This just went from bad to worse.

Luckily they only accidentally killed one person. Fire those stupid dumb cops that were spraying bullets and pay out a few million in law suits and try to move on. That's about all we can do now. What a break down in common sense.

Were the police officers white? Was the robber black? Will Jesse Jackson and Rev. Sharpton be coming to town to tell the media about how the OPD shot and killed a black man who was just playing with his toy gun?

It appears that the boom operator got trapped in the vestibule at the same door the suspect used when he tried to leave. It's likely that the bullet was able to travel through an area not protected by a ballistic vest.

The suspect fired twice, so it looks like this was just a tragic situation. The officers may not have known that the boom operator was there.

I gotta say that is a great picture. I'm definitely becoming a fan of your pictures. That picture tells the story.

I watched the tribute episode for the camera man that aired tonight. It was basically a compilation of segments that he worked on. A scene from Omaha was played towards the end. I was distracted so I missed most of it.

I just watched some of the replay of the special. They showed a few scenes from Omaha. And the ending was a few pictures of him on scene in Omaha. Glad that they were able to pay him tribute so soon.

My favorite from DSM was when the officer thought they could cross a railroad track, NOT at a crossing, in a cruiser. Needless to say the cruiser was stuck between the rails when they heard a Train Horn off in the distance!

Lucky for them, the train was on a different track!


The episode with that segment was on reruns tonight. I don't know when this interview was filmed, but I guess people on the street years later continue to recognize him as the guy on COPS who got stuck on the tracks.

If the YouTube commentator is correct, this should be the exact area he got stuck at, lol: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Dean+ ... 4d39cf4423
