Karen Kornacki, a sports reporter for ABC affiliate KMBC in Kansas City, was hit near her left eye with a pellet that was fired from a plastic gun while in the KC Royals’ locker room yesterday afternoon. The shooter was KC outfielder Emil Brown. Unfortunately, the link to the video is not working…
Kornacki was interviewing Tony Pena Jr at around 3:30 PM when she felt the pellet hit near her left eye. She left the locker room immediately and an assistant trainer treated her with an ice pack.
A Royals spokesman said that it was an accident and that Brown wasn’t shooting at anybody. Kornacki went to see an eye doctor and is fine. She wanted everyone to know that the Royals went above and beyond to make sure that she was okay.
Um, I think the bigger question here is WTF is Emil Brown doing with a pellet gun in the locker room? Anyone?
