(OMAHA, Neb.) — A crew member working on the television show Cops was killed on Tuesday night when Omaha police fired at a robbery suspect.

Police say the shooting occurred after officers responded to a robbery at a fast food restaurant. The crew member was identified by Langley Productions as Bryce Dion.

Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer said Wednesday that Dion “paid the ultimate price for his service to provide the footage of the real-life dangers that law enforcement officers face on a daily basis.”

Both Dion and the suspect were taken to the University of Nebraska Medical Center on Tuesday night, where they were later pronounced dead.
