A Crew Member On ‘Cops’ Died After Being Shot While Filming A Shootout On The Show

While I don’t watch Cops, I’m surprised there haven’t been more deaths while filming the show. You’re following around police officers who could possibly get stabbed during filming, wouldn’t you expect at least a few more crew members to at least be injured?

Bryce Dion was holding a microphone during the filming of a gun-fight with an armed robber in Omaha, Nebraska on Tuesday night.
The robber also died in the incident, in which officers fired an estimated 30 shots.
The show is screened on television in the UK on Sky’s FX channel.
Police later discovered the suspect, who was on parole, was actually carrying an air rifle which only looks like a firearm.
The tragedy occurred as police patrol cars responded to a back-up call in relation to a raid taking place at a restaurant just after 9pm.
In an audio of the police radio call one cop is heard describing a suspect in a “black hoodie and a white bandana.”
An officer can then be heard saying: “We have one of the ‘Cops’ guys has been hit by gunfire; we need a squad here now.”
