WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Wilmington Police are looking for the person responsible for hitting a WECT live news van Tuesday night around 10:00 outside of City Hall and then running from the scene.

Our reporter and photographer were covering a story just yards away when they heard a loud bang.

The van's side mirror had been smashed and part of it fell to the ground. Other marks were visible on the driver's side.

Our photographer said the suspect's car looked like a gray Chevy Tahoe or Suburban.

An officer responded to the scene and took a report of the damage. No one was reportedly injured.

If you saw the incident happen and you have any information, you're asked to contact the Wilmington Police Department.
