Unidentified gunmen on Saturday shot and seriously injured a local journalist for a British-based television station in Somalia, one of his colleagues said.
Abdukadir Omar Abdulle, a reporter for the London-based Universal TV was gunned down in front of his house.
"He said he saw two men coming towards him one of them drawing a pistol and he tried to rush through the gate but they shot him twice and one of the shots hit him in the stomach and another broke his leg," colleague Ibrahim Jeke said.
"The assailants escaped and he was rushed to hospital. His condition is stable now," Jeke added.
CPJ reports that 41 journalists have been killed since 1992, including almost six in 2012 only.
