( 4UMF NEWS ) Man Flashes Gun During Live TV Report:
It could have been a whole different kind of “live shot.”
A gun-toting creep crashed WNBC/Channel 4’s noon newscast Wednesday, briefly flashing what appeared to be a silver pistol as correspondent Michael George reported live from in front of the Brooklyn Supreme Court on the trial of NYPD Officer Peter Liang.
George was broadcasting as jurors deliberated on whether Liang should be criminally charged for shooting unarmed Akai Gurley to death in a housing project stairwell in 2014.
“Office Liang was a rookie cop, with little training,” George said as the grinning man walked in to the shot, first touching George on the arm with his left hand and then sweeping by him waving the firearm in the air with his right hand.
The man, wearing a brown jacket and beige baseball cap, turned to face the camera, waved the gun and then ran off.
Cops are actively searching for the man in the video, sources told the Daily News.
“We’re doing a full court press,” a high ranking NYPD source said. “The gun is silver, it looks real and we are treating it as such.”
A rep for WNBC declined to comment.
