A Southern California production company is mourning the loss of one of its crew members killed filming a reality TV show. Santa Monica resident Bryce Dion had been working as a sound engineer while filming the show "Cops" in Omaha, Nebraska, when police got into a shootout with a robbery suspect.
Apparently Dion got separated from his camera man and was hit by a bullet that slipped into a gap of his bulletproof vest and went into his chest. Authorities said yesterday that the robbery had only been armed with a pellet gun they thought was a real handgun when the real bullets started to fly.
The suspect had a very long rap sheet.
