Live News Report Interrupted By Police Shootout Across The Street

Fox 5 in San Diego's Jeff McAdam was reporting live outside of a convention center to talk about Comic-Con remaining virtual this year, but he was distracted mid-sentence when police began exchanging fire with a suspect across the street.

Harbor Police said they stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation. The driver seemed to be impaired, so the officer asked the man to step out of the vehicle. As the driver got out of the car, he began firing at the officer.
