As reported in BuzzFeed, Texas meteorologist Patrick Crawford was shot Wednesday outside the television news station where he is employed. In speaking at a press conference on Monday regarding the matter, Crawford reported that he did not know the gunman and also noted that “there was no interaction whatsoever” prior to the attack.
The Amen Clinic comments that according to Crawford, the individual who shot him didn’t speak any words to him. Rather, the gunman simply began shooting as he left the parking lot. Crawford did not know the gunman. In discussing his plans for the future, Crawford notes that his primary focus is getting better and restoring his health while spending time with his family.
Dr. Travis Isbell is Crawford’s trauma surgeon and has been working with Crawford to facilitate his recovery. According to Isbell, Crawford is expected to recover fully and should be able to go home and be with his family prior to Christmas.
