West Virginia TV reporter shot at while covering murder scene


(WVVA) - Covering a homicide story this week further proved that sometimes news reporters can find themselves in harms way...just by doing their jobs.  WVVA's Annie Moore was out gathering video of Willbrian Apartments, in Beckley, West Virginia, where a body was found Saturday. That's when the unthinkable happened.

Someone driving by fired a shot at Moore while she was recording footage.  Moore says she felt the bullet whiz by her head and immediately took cover in the news vehicle.  Thankfully she was not injured. 

Police are now using this video to find those involved. In it, you can see the suspect vehicle as it drives by.  Officers and witnesses near the scene say it was definitely a gun shot. The vehicle appears to be an older model Ford pickup truck with a silver tool box in the back. 

If you recognize the vehicle or have any information on the identity of the shooter, you're urged to contact Beckley Police.
