SAN DIEGO, Cali. — San Diego police released the name of the man suspected of shooting a KSWB sports anchor Tuesday.
Police were searching for 54-year-old Mike Montana of Superior Painting. He is a white man who is 6-feet, 3-inches tall and weighs 190 pounds. Montana was last seen driving a white minivan away from the neighborhood, police said.
He was taken into custody Tuesday night after the van was located, according to FOX 5 news in San Diego.
KSWB sports anchor Kyle Kraska was rushed to Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla after getting shot outside his home in the 12000 block of Avonette Court in Scripps Ranch Tuesday at 3 p.m., his employer said.
A neighbor told police that someone shot the rear window out of Kraska’s silver Mercedes-Benz, firing as many as 10 shots, then fled in an older-model white minivan.
Police said Kraska was shot in the leg and left side of his stomach. He went into surgery before 5 p.m., Pacific Coast time. The prognosis is expected to be good.
Kraska has been with KSWB since 1999. The Emmy Award-winning broadcaster spent four years as morning and noon co-anchor before moving into the sports department 12 years ago.
