Luana Munoz, a WESH news reporter, was seen sobbing and crying on live television as she covered an earlier that day shooting spree in Orlando. In the shooting rampage, three people died, including a fellow news reporter named Dylan Lyons, and two more suffered catastrophic injuries.
Lyons was conducting his daily activities. A Florida man named Keith Moses was eventually identified as the person who had shot and killed a woman he knew earlier that day. Lyons was in the middle of reporting on the crime scene when Moses suddenly reappeared and shot Lyons.
Moses also injured his behind-the-camera coworker, who is currently in critical condition. Although they both worked for Spectrum News 13, the victims don’t seem to be connected to the suspect. Later that evening, Munoz learned of Lyons’ passing and made her way to the hospital where he passed away to deliver her report.
Munoz said, wiping the tears from her eyes and her voice quivering, “It’s hard to cover. “The situation at [Orlando Regional Medical Center] is emotional. Since everyone in the room is aware that the reporter’s fiancee and I were hugging, I won’t turn the camera around.
She stated that it is encouraging to see media professionals band together in the wake of the shooting spree in Orlando, referring to it as “every reporter’s worst fear.” We fear that something similar might occur when we return home at night, and that is exactly what occurred here, she said. At the time, Lyons was 24 years old.
The news that a colleague reporter died while out covering a shooting has brought us back to [ORMC]. She said, before sending it off to the studio to “collect herself,” “There are members of his family here, and his fiancée is here tonight, and she is distraught.
The shooter recognised Nathacha Augustin, the victim from earlier that day. Just a few hours later, Moses returned to the scene and shot and killed Lyons while injuring his colleague. Moses shot and killed her at 11 a.m. Moses was taken into custody and charged with murder. Additional charges are pending.
Unfortunately, the shooting spree in Orlando continued. Moments after shooting and killing Dylan Lyons, the shooter entered a nearby house and started his rampage. After being shot inside their home, a mother and her 9-year-old daughter were both killed; the mother is in critical condition.
Police do not yet know why the victims were killed, and they think the shooter was unrelated to either the mother or the 9-year-old child. They are currently evaluating all of the information, and an investigation is ongoing to piece together what happened. Orlando has been rocked by the tragedy.
Moses, who is only 19 years old, has a criminal history, including allegations of drug paraphernalia possession in November 2021 and a misdemeanour for narcotics possession. He was also detained by police for severe battery, assault, and grand theft throughout his teenage years.
“We are grieved by the passing of our coworker and the other lives that were lost today in a senseless manner. Our hearts go out to the families, friends, and coworkers of our employees during this terrible time. According to Spectrum News, “We remain optimistic that our other injured colleague will make a full recovery.”
