Demond Fernandez is leaving Houston’s ABC affiliate, KTRK-TV, to join Dallas-based WFAA8 as a full-time reporter.

He spent three years at KTRK and also previously worked at WOAI-TV in San Antonio. WFAA8 news director Carolyn Mungo said Thursday that Fernandez’s first day at the station will be on June 23rd. His hiring was first reported by Houston blogger Mike McGuff.

Earlier this year, Fernandez had a gun pulled on him by a 73-year-old accused child molester after he attempted to question the man at his home. Here is KTRK’s raw video of the incident.
