TV Station offers reward for information in shooting

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Nashville television station is offering a $10,000 reward for information in the robbery and shooting of one of its news reporters.

Nashville Police say in a statement that WZTV is offering the reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person who wounded reporter Erika Lathon late Thursday after she withdrew cash from a Bank of America ATM near downtown.

Police said the robber demanded money from Lathon, who complied, but he then shot her in the arm and ran away.

Lathon was able to drive herself to a hospital where she was treated for the gunshot and later released. Lathon has worked for the Nashville Fox affiliate since 2000.

Information about the shooting can be called in to Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
