OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) — Gunfire in Omaha, Nebraska left a robbery suspect dead and a COPS television show crew member critically wounded Tuesday night.



“The suspect in the armed robbery has since been declared deceased at the hospital,” said Deputy Chief Baker. “The other person transported to the hospital at that time was a member of the COPS television program."

He was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.

What I have not heard was whether or not the crew member was on the job riding with the police or was it just a case of wrong place, wrong time?

 

On a different note, I dont know if this is a reflection of the people who watch COPS or just the general viewership of KAKE-TV but here are the first two comments on the story:

 

jeez i hope he is okey. that is my most favorist show to wach in the hole wide wurld!!

Shots that hit him were fired by police.

OK, its time to cancel this, then.

 

I thought it had been cancelled a decade ago. Stations I work for rerun episodes that go as far back as 1992 all of the time.

 

Not only is it a bad day if you end up on Cops, but the world gets to see it replayed for decades into the future. I can't stand the damned thing, especially because that dumb song gets stuck in my head (wish I held the publishing rights).


It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.

The bad guy had a pellet gun, yet the guy standing next to a cop get shot with a bullet. They are lucky they didn't kill anyone else.

It would be easier to accept if the bullet came from the criminal's gun.

What were the locations and rough dates of these? I can't believe I've completely missed 5 screw-ups.

Look up Andrea Rebello, Maria Godinez, and Misty Holt-Singh for starters.  I can't find names on the others right now, but one was a small child.

The Cops sound technician was wearing body armor, but the round entered under (or through?) his arm.

 

The sound man was entering the Wendys and the robber was trying to exit via the same door.  Apparently the robber aimed his Airsoft gun at the police men and they opened up on him.

 

There is unreleased video of the encounter.

 

My understanding was the videographer entered the same door the police did, the robber attempted to exit the opposite side.

 

The order taker at Wendys was on local TV and was very scared of the robber, she was convinced the gun was real.  She had already given him the drive thru cash and was entering her ID # on the main counter register when the shoot out occurred. 

 

Despite a lengthy record, the robbers family is upset with how the police handled the situation.

If the one you're thinking about an NYPD officer killing a three month old, that got around by people that didn't realize the original source was a fake news site.

I can't believe that I was unaware that COPS was still on the air.

I had a SL set up for Spike, but it just kept recording reruns and filling up my DVR.

When and where are the new shows being aired?

Why cancel? Shootings are an unfortunate part of law enforcement but a part of the job nonetheless. This is one of the few true reality shows without any staging.
