DETROIT (AP) -

A Detroit TV news crew took cover and called police after an 88-year-old robbery victim they were trying to interview fired a shot at them.

No one was injured in the Monday shooting. The man was taken away by police in handcuffs.

WXYZ-TV says its reporter and a photographer went to the man's home in an attempt to interview him about the robbery, which happened a few days earlier.

Police say the man had been knocked down and tied up at his home before $600 and a cellphone were taken.

The station says the man came to the door with a handgun and fired a shot. The TV crew called 911 after the man went back inside.

Another station's crew was nearby at the time of the shooting.
