Police say the shooting happened Tuesday night after officers interrupted a robbery at a fast-food restaurant in midtown Omaha.
Police say an officer saw a man robbing the restaurant about 9:20 p.m. and called for backup.
No officers were hit, and police said no other suspects are being sought.
Langley Productions said the crew member who was killed has been identified as Bryce Dion.
"We are deeply saddened and shocked by this tragedy and our main concern is helping his family in any way we can," they said. "Bryce Dion was a long
term member of the 'Cops' team and very talented and dedicated person."
Police say crews have been filming in Omaha since June.
