When covering a confrontation with what authorities are describing as a “group of juveniles,” CNN cameras caught a badly-injured police officer being dragged to safety by his fellow officers.
“A police officer, clearly hurt here,” CNN correspondent Athena Jones reported. “This is a police officer being pulled out,” she added, before being forced to retreat.”
The injured man was later seen being loaded into an armored police van. Baltimore Police confirmed the incident on Twitter:
One of our officers has been injured at Mondawmin Mall. The group continues to throw bricks and other items at police officers.
