OAKLAND, Calif. — Authorities say a television news crew was robbed at gunpoint while working on Saturday.

Oakland police spokesperson Kim Armstead said an NBC sports news crew was robbed while working near Jack London Square, the East Bay Times reported.


Armstead said three armed individuals took a camera from inside the crew’s vehicle. No injuries were reported.

It’s the third incident targeting news organizations in the Bay Area city in recent weeks. A San Francisco Chronicle photographer was robbed at gunpoint this month in West Oakland and last month a security guard was fatally shot during an attempted robbery while he was with a KRON-TV news crew.
