'Cops' TV crew member killed as police shoot armed robber
August 28 , 2014
A crew member of the Fox reality TV show ‘Cops’ was killed when Omaha police fired at a robbery suspect in a fast-food restaurant, according to media reports.
It was later found that the weapon which the suspect, Cortez Washington, used to fire at the officers — who shot and killed him in response — was not a handgun but a pellet gun.
While firing at the suspect, one bullet fatally hit Bryce Dion, 38, a crew member of 'Cops,' Todd Schmaderer, the police chief of Omaha later told the media.
