Brian Stelter: Every Reporter Can Relate to Dylan Lyons

From a story on by Brian Stelter headlined “Among journalists, shock at Dylan Lions’ murder is coupled with a strong sense of ‘what if?”

Every reporter can relate to Dylan Lyons.

A 24-year-old journalism school grad, Lyons was beginning his climb up the ladder, juggling a personal life and professional opportunities. On Tuesday night he stood in a dark parking lot hours after a local school board meeting for what turned out to be his last live shot. On Wednesday afternoon the Spectrum News 13 reporter was gunned down at the scene of a murder investigation. His photojournalist colleague Jesse Walden was critically injured.
