SAN DIEGO (AP) - A San Diego sports anchor became emotional when he took the witness stand to testify against a man he says tried to kill him.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/29AauPg ) that 55-year-old Mike Montana is charged with attempted murder after prosecutors say he shot sportscaster Kyle Kraska several times outside his home in February 2015.

Kraska testified Tuesday that a doctor told him he was hit by six bullets.

Kraska had hired Montana to paint his Scripps Ranch home, but says Montana quit before the job was halfway done and later sent Kraska a threatening letter demanding payment.

Montana’s attorney says he was not trying to kill Kraska, only to shoot his car. The lawyer also argued that Montana’s mental state was altered by prescription pain medications.
