Kiev regional Police claim Russian troops opened fire on a car with Brent Renaud and colleague Juan Arredondo near the capital.
The Kiev Police force said in a statement on Sunday that Russian troops opened fire on the car of Brent and Juan in Irpin, about 10km northwest of the capital. Juan was taken to a hospital in Kiev where he is recovering.
The incident was confirmed by the adviser to Ukraine’s interior minister, Anton Herashchenko on a Telegram channel.
At this stage there has been no comment from Russian authorities regarding the attack.
Arredondo has said that he and Renaud were shot after they were stopped at a checkpoint just after a bridge in Irpin.
At the time of the attack Arredondo and Renaud had been filming refugees fleeing the area when they were shot at while in a car approaching a checkpoint.
White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan told CBS News that the United States government would be consulting with the Ukrainians to determine how this happened and would then “execute appropriate consequences.”
