SAN DIEGO -- Kyle Kraska, the sports director and anchor at CBS affiliate KFMB-TV in San Diego, was shot outside his suburban home Tuesday, the station reported.

A suspect turned himself in late Tuesday night after a brief standoff with police at a home in El Cajon, in San Diego County.

San Diego police received a call of shots fired around 3:00 p.m. Officers arriving at the scene in the community of Scripps Ranch found neighbors giving aid to Kraska, who was then transported to Scripps La Jolla Hospital and rushed into surgery.

Kraska was shot in the leg and the left side of his stomach. A police officer who ride in the ambulance told KFMB Kraska was alert, awake and responsive during the trip to the hospital. Late Tuesday, following surgery, doctors said Kraska's prognosis was good.

Kraska's silver Mercedes Benz was found parked at the end of his driveway with its windows shot out. A neighbor told KFMB he saw Kraska face-down in the street after being shot. Another neighbor reported hearing eight shots fired followed by a second round of gunfire.
