“The man suspected of shooting CBS News 8’s [KFMB] Sports Director Kyle Kraska surrendered to SWAT officers late Tuesday night, following an intense manhunt,” according to a story on the KFMB-TV website.

The story continues, “Kraska is now recovering at Scripps La Jolla Hospital, after undergoing surgery. He was shot in front of his Scripps Ranch home Tuesday afternoon.

“Following a standoff at an El Cajon residence, Mike Montana, 54, was wearing jeans, a dark sweatshirt and a beanie when he surrendered with his hands up to SWAT officers just before 10 p.m. ”

The article adds, “The incident began when shots were fired into the rear window of Kraska’s silver Mercedes. Then after pulling out of his driveway, the confrontation spilled into the street in front of Kraska’s home. At that time, another round of gunshots were heard.”

Evidently the two men knew one another. The story adds that “The motive for the shooting is under investigation, but during a news conference, the San Diego Police Department said Kraska was targeted.”

KFMB is a CBS affiliate owned by Midwest Television.
