San Diego TV Sports Anchor Kyle Kraska Shot Outside His Home

(SAN DIEGO) — A San Diego television sports anchor was shot on Tuesday in his car outside his home in what appeared to be an ambush, police said.

Kyle Kraska, the sports anchor at KFMB-TV, was shot as he was backing his Mercedes out of his driveway in the Scripps Ranch neighborhood shortly after 3 p.m., San Diego Police Department spokesman Officer Mike Tortorella said.

Photos from the scene show a Mercedes half out of the driveway, with the rear window glass broken.

Police said they were looking for Mike Montana, 54, as a suspect in the shooting. Montana was seen leaving the scene in a white minivan with “Superior Painting” on the side, police said.

San Diego police Lt. Scott Wahl told ABC News affiliate KGTV-TV in San Diego that he could provide no details on what relationship there might be between Montana and Kraska.

The extent of the Kraska’s wounds remained “unconfirmed” as of 5 p.m. PT, he said.



Kraska has been with KFMB-TV since 1999 and has been the sports anchor for 12 years.
