A television reporter was slain in a shooting spree in Florida that killed three people on Wednesday, February 22, while covering one of the shootings, according to authorities.


Keith Melvin Moses, 19, was arrested and charged with murder in connection with a shooting that occurred early Wednesday morning. Moses is expected to face charges in four further shootings that occurred later that day, including the death of the Spectrum News 13 journalist.


Moses has a significant criminal past, according to police, including firearms offenses, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, and assault with a deadly weapon.


Deputies were called to the 6100 block of Hialeah Street around 11 a.m. Wednesday and discovered a lady in her 20s who had been shot and died as a result of her injuries.

The police have stated that they have no idea why the suspect allegedly targeted the two journalists as well as the mother and daughter who were shot.

“Around 4:05 p.m., we received 911 reports of another gunfire at that place and another shooting close,” stated Orange County Sheriff Mina.

According to authorities, the two slain journalists – a photographer and a writer – were on the scene that morning to cover the killing and were shot in or around their vehicle.


“That vehicle was almost exactly in the same spot as the vehicle was from the homicide this morning. So it’s unclear why exactly they were targeted. And you know certainly we’re going to look into that, and we will definitely let you know,” Mina said.

The sheriff said “the vehicle didn’t look like a typical news vehicle with a lot of markings on it.”

Shortly after that shooting, police went to the scene of a third shooting and found a woman on Harrington Street and her 9-year-old daughter were also shot inside of a home. The 9-year old has died, the police said.


“It is with deep sadness that @RTDNA learns of the death of a @MyNews13 journalist in Orlando,” Radio Television Digital News Association CEO Dan Shelley tweeted. “He was 1 of 2 of the station’s journalists shot covering a previous crime in a residential area. Sending thoughts of peace and comfort to their families, friends & the other victims.”
