Meteorologist, Shot Outside Texas Station Where He Works, Is Stable

By    |   Wednesday, 17 Dec 2014 07:31 PM

Texas meteorologist Patrick Crawford was shot in front of the station where he works on Wednesday.

Crawford, a KCEN-TV meteorologist for the past two years, was taken to Baylor Scott and White Hospital in Temple and was in stable condition, the station said.

The suspect, described as a white man 30-35 years old with a receding hairline, exchanged words with Crawford before pulling out a semi-automatic handgun and shooting the meteorologist several times, the station said.

A man was taken into custody after a standoff at a nearby house, ABC News reported. Police haven’t said whether the man in custody is the shooter, calling him a person of interest.

Crawford was leaving the station and getting in his car when the attack occurred, ABC said. After being shot, the 35-year-old meteorologist drove away and flagged down a construction worker for help.

“Whether they know each other or it’s a random shooting, we don’t know that yet,” Department of Public Safety Trooper D.L. Wilson told ABC News.
