Former New Orleans forecaster shot outside TV station
TEMPLE, Texas - A former New Orleans weatherman is recovering after he was shot Wednesday morning outside the Texas TV station where he currently works.
KCEN said meteorologist Patrick Crawford exchanged words with the shooter before the man pulled a gun and shot him several times.
The station said Crawford managed to drive away and flag down a construction worker for help. He's undergoing surgery at a hospital in Temple, Texas.
Police said they're still searching for the shooter, described as a white male, 30-35 years old with a receding hairline, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark jeans.
Crawford was a meteorologist for WDSU from 2010 to 2011.
