I get to Los Angeles and what's the first story I see?
Man Shoots Lawyer as L.A. TV Crews Watch
Police said Jerry Curry was shot on a walkway outside the Van Nuys courthouse by a client who was upset about receiving less money than his sister in a probate case.
Dramatic television footage showed Curry, 53, of Simi Valley, hiding behind a tree as a man identified by police as William Striler fired a revolver at him several times.
"At first I thought it was a joke because there was no smoke," said Steve Grayson, a still photographer. "But the shots were really, really loud. It was very scary."
Curry staggered from behind the tree, bleeding from the face, and held up his hands before collapsing in the street.
It's nice to be somewhere weirder than Philly for a change.
