SAN DIEGO (AP) — A San Diego television sportscaster has left the hospital eight days after he was shot outside his home.
Kyle Kraska released a statement through his station KFMB-TV on Wednesday saying his hospital stay included multiple surgeries and four days in a medically-induced coma, and he’ll now continue his recovery at home.
House painter Mike Montana pleaded not guilty earlier this week to the Feb. 17 shooting.
Police say Montana was in a dispute with Kraska over work done on the reporter’s home. He surrendered to authorities the same day after a SWAT standoff at his home.
Kraska is the sports director at KFMB, San Diego’s CBS affiliate, where he has worked since 1999. He has been a fixture in San Diego homes as the station’s evening sports anchor since 2003.
