Guard shoots man attempting to break into Washington DC news station

A local TV station in Washington DC had a busy day reporting the news, with one of the stories ironically taking place on its own premises.

According to the report, a suspected intruder tried to break in the premises of the station unauthorised but was stopped by the on duty security guard who shot and demobilizes him.

Police had immediately responded to the distress call at the WTTG building in the city's Friendship Heights neighborhood at around 3:15pm local time on Monday after receiving reports that a suspect was trying to enter the building.

According to authorities, the man was conscious but in critical condition as he was transported into a waiting ambulance en route to a local hospital.

Authorities are currently at the scene investigating, according to WTTG, also known in the area as Fox 5 DC.
