A Sacramento news team was attacked by angry mourners Sunday after they refused to leave a memorial for a murder victim.

Reporter John Lobertini and camera operator Rebecca Little of Fox 40 News were set upon at a memorial for shooting victim Chester Jackson, 27. Mourners had asked them to back away. The memorial took place outside of an International House of Pancakes where the shooting took place.

As captured on video, Little was forced to the ground and Lobertini was pushed away.

Little said she was kicked while on the ground, but no one was seriously injured, the New York Daily News reported.

Police are currently pursuing two suspects in Jackson's shooting, the paper said.
