A crew member for the TV show "Cops" died after he was shot by police while filming Omaha officers responding to an armed robbery Tuesday night, officials said Wednesday.

Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer said 38-year-old Bryce Dion was shot once during a shootout between three officers and a robber in a Wendy's restaurant.

Dion, who handled the sound equipment for the show's cameraman, had been working with Omaha police on the show since June, police said.
