A security guard for Joe Vazquez, a reporter for CBS affiliate Kpix 5 in the San Francisco Bay Area, was shot in the leg and hospitalized while Vazquez and his crew were covering the Oakland teachers’ strike on Sunday night.

The crew also had their camera and tripod stolen by the armed robber, according to Kpix 5. Security guard Matt Meredith is in “stable” condition, according to Kpix 5 assignment editor Maya Castro. Vazquez later tweeted “we believe his wounds are not life threatening, thank God.” Vazquez included a 40-second video of the scene on Sunday night, showing Meredith being helped off the ground and taken away in a stretcher.
