News employee, 9-year-old killed in shooting at Orange County crime scene
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WWSB) - The Orange County Sheriff’s Office says that a journalist was shot and killed while covering a homicide.
Two members of a Spectrum News 13 crew at the scene of a homicide investigation were shot while sitting in their news vehicle. Deputies then say the suspect went into a home and shot a 9-year-old girl and her mother.
A member of the news team was killed. The 9-year-old also died from her injuries.
The suspect, identified as 19-year-old Keith Melvin Moses was also arrested. He will be charged in the homicide of the woman killed earlier in the day.
The news station has not publicly identified the employee killed.
Investigators believe Moses is connected to all of the shootings. He faces several criminal charges, including murder.
“It’s hard to know if he was targeting this news crew. It will all be part of our investigation,” Sheriff Mina said.
