According to numerous reports, Kyle Kraska—the sports director of San Diego's CBS affiliate who appeared on nightly newscasts and hosted the Chargers post-game show—was shot and wounded outside of his home in the wealthy Scripps Ranch area today.


According to CBS 8, Kraska was shot in both his leg and his stomach, but was responsive during the ambulance ride to the hospital. Here is CBS 8 with details on the shooting:

The incident began when shots were fired into the rear window of Kraska's Mercedes. Then, his car appeared to pull out of the driveway and the confrontation spilled into the street in front of Kraska's home. At that time, another round of gunshots were heard.

A neighbor told CBS News 8 that he saw Kraska face down in the street after being shot. Another neighbor reported hearing eight shots fired followed by a second round of gunfire.


ABC 7 says that police believe that the shooting was "targeted," but had not yet determined a motive. The suspected shooter, a 54-year-old man named Mike Montana, was spotted leaving the scene in a white painting company van.
