Deer Creek Middle School Shooting Coverage

A shooting occurred at Deer Creek Middle School Tuesday afternoon. Here is a roundup of the coverage from what I have seen so far:

KCNC: Broke into Dr. Phil around 3:50 to announce the shooting. As of 10pm, Karen Leigh is anchoring from Deer Creek Middle School. In addition, they have three four other reporters at the scene covering it. @MistyMontano was the first KCNC account to break the story shortly after 3pm, and as far as I can remember, she was the first Twitter account among all of the local TV accounts I follow to break it. She hasn’t stopped tweeting about the story since. Well done to her.

KMGH: Covered it during 7News Now at 4pm. As of 10pm, Kristin Ayers is reporting live from Deer Creek Middle School. @DenverChannel sent out their first of two tweets today mentioning the story around 4pm.

KUSA: The Olympics are currently on at 10pm, but 9News is now broadcasting on KTVD My20. As far as I can remember, for most of the Olympics so far, 9News at 10pm has been usually pre-empted to 10:35 rather than being pushed to KTVD. Their first Twitter account to break the story was @MomsLikeMeDen around 3:30, shortly before @KUSADESK.

KDVR/KWGN: To be honest, I never got around to checking out their coverage. Sorry. Perhaps this would be a good reason for KDVR to start a 10pm newscast to corner viewers like me. @KDVR broke it on Twitter sometime before 4pm.
