HAVERHILL, Mass. (WHDH) -
The brother of a Haverhill man who was caught in the crossfire of a deadly shootout commented for the first time.
Bryce Dion, 38, of Haverhill, was the audio supervisor for "Cops," and the first crew member of the long-running TV show to be killed while filming police in action, executives with the show's production company said.
Trevor Dion said that he respected his brother's wisdom.
"He was my advice guy. He was six years younger than me but he's 60 years smarter than me. I loved talking to him. I could ask him anything. He had perpetual happiness and I'm going to end up with perpetual sadness," Trevor said about his brother.
Officers said Dion was wearing a bullet proof vest but was so focused on filming when he was caught in the crossfire. Dion was set to return home to California in a few weeks.
Police identified the robbery suspect as 32-year-old Cortez Washington, who was on parole from Missouri for a robbery conviction.
