EDDY, Texas — A meteorologist for a Texas television station was shot multiple times in the station parking lot Wednesday morning.
Patrick Crawford, a morning show meteorologist for KCEN, exchanged words with a suspect before the suspect pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and fired several times.
Crawford was able to drive away and flag down a construction worker to call for help.
Police are still searching for the suspect. A person of interest was taken into custody but police say he is likely not tied to the shooting.
Crawford was taken to a hospital where he underwent surgery. He is out of surgery and in stable condition.
