Man Shot Attempting to Break Into Fox 5 News Station in Washington, D.C.

A few short hours ago in Washington, D.C.’s NW Friendship Heights area, a man was shot after kicking in two plexiglass doors between the street and the TV station’s lobby.

From The Washington Post:

Video from two surveillance cameras, aired by Fox 5 News, showed the man wearing a red hooded sweatshirt walking up to the door, turning his back to the door and with one hard kick knocking out a plexiglass panel to an exterior door. Gresham said the incident happened at 3 p.m.

The man then entered a small vestibule and began kicking a second door opening to the lobby, the surveillance video shows. After several kicks, he was able to pull down the plexiglass from the second door and he then climbed through the door and into the lobby of the longtime WTTG offices at 5151 Wisconsin Ave. NW.

It looks like that surveillance footage is not currently available at this time. It’s not clear why the building was targeted or who the 37-year-old suspect was. However, according to NBC Washington, the suspect was saying that he wanted Fox 5 to contact President Trump using a phone number that he himself was attempting to provide.

The suspect is expected to survive the gunshot wound. We’ll update this story as more details surface.

    Shot placement is critical in these situations.

      Speaking of shot placement, did anyone else notice that the Tucker Carlson YouTube channel is now missing? Looks to me like the “good” folks at YouTube just deleted his channel.

      I hope they shot his balls off. Might be too late to help society, though.

    Clearly a disturbed individual. Call it a defensive gun story, especially after what happened in Annapolis.

    Who shot him? An employee? A cop? Batman?

    Now bearpaw will show up and tell us this is Trumps fault.

    Followed by nanashi blaming it on the NRA.

        Batman did use guns back in the day.

        You haven’t seen the latest DC universe movies, have you? Batman has all sorts of guns all over his vehicles.

          Maybe he blocked out his memories of that awful garbage. “Martha!”

        Oh dear. I didn’t see the race of the attacker mentioned, so I watched the video.

        It appears to be another Mennonite. Or Amish teenage wilding.

      Armed security guard shot him. ABC, CBS or NBC wouldn’t have such a guard. Not politically correct. This was a Fox station.

      1. avatar Hannibal says:

        Don’t confuse their politics with practice. I have no doubt that anti-gun networks can and do have guns protecting them. They just don’t want you to have the same opportunity.

          generaly the map-practice media has very good security ,there ia way more paranoia on that side of the fence .generally knuckle-draggers with guns.

    3. Yeah! I agree..Very vague story…Also, Binder will show up and state that the US Constitutional-Bill of Rights can be regulated as a whole by “Bigger Government in overreach mode…” He’ll state that the 1st Amendment can be stifled…So the 2nd Amendment can be “regulated” by local/state/federal government under the disguise of public safety…Because nobody has been able to properly challenge authoritarian Goverment overreach…Who are We kidding, anyway?!? We’re all heading down the rabbit hole…Or has anyone noticed in recent years across the USA….

      Indeed. Allot of NPC’s these days. Pg2 will show up to blame me, or vaccines. Crisco kid will blame anything not democrat. That last dude has been gone for awhile though. I suspect he’s finally been committed.

    I was hoping that Emily Miller shot him.

    Homie looked determined on the video! Good job guard…

    “…the suspect was saying that he wanted Fox 5 to contact President Trump using a phone number that he himself was attempting to provide.” I’m sure the suspect is a shining example of excellent mental health

    WTOP report says he has a long history of kooky rants and threats against the NRA and the Trump Organization.

    The guy is clearly mentally ill but it looks like it’s manifested through Trump Derangement Syndrome. If you’re the praying sort he and the security guard could use a couple.
