Man Wanted By Police For Murder, Shoots at Reporters Covering the Story

Covering the news is doesn't always go as planned. On Tuesday in Willimantic County, Connecticut, a news photographer for local TV station almost became the story when a man wanted by police fired at him. According to reports, the photographer was on scene covering a massive manhunt for 34-year-old Andrew Samuolis, who is accused of killing his father, John Samuolis. (John's body was found inside in home and officers think he had been dead for several months.) As the photographer and his reporter went to cover the scene, they spotted Andrew running through people's backyards. You can see Andrew with a handgun and you hear the shot. When cops arrived, Andrew shot at them, too. One officer was shot in the arm, but is expected to be all right. Andrew was arrested and charged with criminal attempt to commit first-degree assault and criminal attempt to commit assault on a police officer. He's being held on $1 million bond. Wait, what, no murder charges?
