“I don’t suppose I could hitch a ride?” I asked our news photog and reporter as they searched the neighborhood behind our television station for the alleged stabbing. I got comfy on what I believe was a seat. Hello, Friday.
When police call your newsroom asking if you have security cameras pointing at an apartment complex behind your station, you know something is up.
We arrived to the scene of an alleged stabbing in the area of 400 West Sinto around 4:15 p.m. where a woman attempted to blame the McGill killer for harming the victim. She told police a black man ran up to the victim and stabbed him in the chest.
When something is so close, it’s difficult to stay put and not do anything. We didn’t know where this incident was so we left in a group that kept getting bigger. At first my entourage was just our 10 p.m. anchor. And then it was a pair of techies.
Thankfully our news team drove by and I tagged along to the area of West Sinto where I was able to shoot this photo gallery. That’s also how I learned the vehicle wheel fence is a few blocks up the road. Good to know.
