CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuela’s Government says a worker at a state-supported farm has been wounded in a shooting and a member of a TV crew is suspected.

Vice-President Elias Jaua said the shooting happened Tuesday in north-central Aragua state.

A statement from Jaua on Thursday said a crew from the TV channel Globovision entered the farm and was approached by a group of workers who told the team to leave.

According to Jaua, a farm equipment operator was then wounded in the neck by a gunshot. He said the shot was presumably fired by a member of the Globovision crew.

The TV channel takes a strongly critical stance toward Venezuela’s Government. The channel said it was cooperating with authorities and said under no circumstance would it condone an employee being armed during journalistic work.
