Emil Brown shoots reporter in the eye with a pellet gun

Danny Clinksdale just reported on the Royals' post game show on 810 WHB radio that local television reporter Karen Kornacki was shot in the left eye with a pellet gun during a pre-game interview in the Royals' locker room tonight.

The gunman: Emil Brown.

Clinksdale said that the shooting occured during a group interview at Tony Pena, Jr.'s locker.

The weapon is believed to be a "toy pellet gun" fired from across the room. Clinksdale said it was not believed to be too serious when it happened, but Kornacki did not go on the air for the 5 p.m. newscast. She was at the eye doctor having the injury addressed.

Brown was in the Royals' starting line-up and went 1-for-4.

The Royals are calling it an "accident".

Update [2007-7-28 1:34:6 by royalsreview]:

Don't worry, Buddy has spoken to "Brownie".

"I talked to Karen. I’m glad she’s OK. That’s all that matters to me right now," Royals manager Buddy Bell said. "I was concerned about her first of all. I did talk to Brownie too."

Brownie follows in the illustrious steps of Brett Saberhagen who not only threw a firecracker at a group of reporters as a Met, but also sprayed bleach, via water-gun, at some unlucky scribes.

All this was before Barry Bonds destroyed our national innocence of course.
