A woman whose son was shot by police has been caught on camera racially abusing a journalist reporting on the crime.
Footage on US TV channel KCCI shows African American journalist Emmy Victor stood reporting on the scene of the shooting of Michael Disbrowe in Boone, Iowa.
A woman runs up to her as she’s reporting and screams ‘Get the f*** out of here’ followed by a bleeped out racial slur.
She then knocks over the cameraman’s tripod before being led off.
Police later identified the woman as Michael Disbrowe’s mother. Disbrowe was shot by police officers after he threatened them with his own gun.
A spokesman for KCCI said: ‘The safety of our crews is critically important as they cover stories affecting our communities. This morning Emmy and Zach demonstrated the utmost professionalism in the face of a very difficult emotionally-charged situation.’
