Angel Gahona was reporting on damage at a bank in the Caribbean coast town of Bluefields when a bullet hit him during his Facebook Live newscast.
In Friday’s incident in Bluefields, the footage shows Gahona describing a damaged cash machine before a shot rings out. He is then seen slumping to the ground, as people scream his name and try to help.
Video footage shows him falling to the ground and bleeding. Local newspaper El Nuevo Diario said he was broadcasting live on Facebook.
It is unclear who shot him or why. La Prensa quoted another journalist as saying only police and groups fighting the protesters were armed there.
