News crew attacked while covering shooting

 SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- A group of about two dozen angry mourners attacked a news crew reporting on the killing of a 27-year-old man in California.

   The Sacramento Bee reports that the two-person crew from KTXL-TV was attacked in a parking lot Sunday afternoon.

   The station's news director, Brandon Mercer, says multimedia journalist Rebecca Little was pulled to the ground by her hair and kicked, and reporter John Lobertini rushed in to help.

   Mercer did not know the extent of Little's injuries.

   Police arrived and dispersed the crowd.

   Officers say the group had gathered after the man was fatally shot around 2:40 a.m. Sunday.

   Investigators believe the shooting happened after two groups started arguing inside a restaurant.

   There have been no arrests.
