In Odesa, "Channel Seven" journalists shot at

04.05.2016, 13:35

On May 3 in Odesa, unidentified men committed an armed assault against the filming crew of the TV channel “Channel Seven”. The shot caused minor injuries to two cameramen and one journalist – they sustained tangential wounds. Only the journalist was hit with a birdshot, but he was saved by his jacket.

The incident took place near the channel's office at Staroportofrankivska Street. The conflict started with a fight that followed the traffic accident nearby. The journalists tried to record the accident, but some of the participants got enraged by this and came to the journalists' office to fight. Police is working to identify the shooter - they already know his name because the journalists had the plate number of the attackers' car. 

The video is available here.
