Man Shot Outside Nightclub; WSFA 12 News Photographer Assaulted

Montgomery, Ala. (WSFA) --  A bizarre shooting in east Montgomery has police scratching their heads.

Officers say a 21-year-old man was sleeping in his car outside a night club at the corner of the Atlanta Highway and the Eastern Boulevard. The man says, the next thing he knew, he had been shot in the arm.

He ran into the club to call 911 and was taken to the hospital by ambulance. His injury was not life threatening.

No one knows who fired the gun.  If you can help identify the shooter, you're asked to call Montgomery police.

Unfortunately, covering news like this can be difficult and even dangerous as times, as a WSFA 12 News photographer found out.

He arrived shortly after the shooting to get video of the crime scene. As his camera started rolling, while standing off of club property, one of the club's security guards tried to block his view.

When our photographer tried to move out of the way, the guard shoved the camera and a short altercation ensued.

When police arrived, they asked the security guard to step away. Neither our photographer nor the guard was injured.

WSFA 12 News did speak to the manager of the club, but he offered no comment.
