This is the shocking moment a man appears to point a gun at a journalist while the TV crew were reporting on gun violence during a live broadcast.

Fox News 32 reporter Joanie Lum was caught off guard when she was filming a "Good Day Chicago" segment at the corner of a street at around 7am on Wednesday (May 25).

The segment, now shared on social media, shows Joanie reading from her notes as she talks about the city's increasing concern in gun-related crime.

A man in black jacket and grey hoodie walks into camera and flashing what appears to be a firearm behind Joanie.

He points directly towards the camera crew and skips further down the street.

Chicago Police are now appealing to public for information to help identifying the man, who is described as aged between 18 and 25, thin build, standing about 5ft6in to 5ft8in tall and weighing roughly 9 to 10 stone.

The man was previously spotted buying drinks from a Starbucks.

Fox News said the police are now looking for him, who is accused of aggravated assault with a firearm.

This comes after the deadly massacre in Texas where 19 children and two teachers were killed in a shooting incident at Robb Elementary School.

Gunman Salvador Ramos, 18, was shot dead by police while inside of the school.
