FOX13 reporter Jeremy Pierre and an unidentified news photographer were robbed at gunpoint half a mile from the station’s studio on Nov. 10, 2022.

Pierre posted on Facebook shortly after 7 a.m. that the crew was robbed at the intersection of Poplar Avenue and Highland Street.

“You know I’ve had my fair share of stories but DAMN!” Pierre wrote. “One of the dudes even showed me the gun in his waistband.”

According to the post, the thieves took the crew’s camera, tripod and LiveU equipment used to broadcast footage.

Pierre did not respond to a request for comment or to confirm the identity of the photojournalist with him. The U.S. Press Freedom Tracker has documented Pierre’s assault here.
