Video: Mo. police, journalists take cover from hail of bullets

The incident occurred as police were moving down the street with an armored vehicle

By PoliceOne Staff

FERGUSON, Mo. — A photographer covering the police protests in Ferguson was forced to run for cover after someone began firing shots into the crowd of protestors, police and journalists.

According to KMOV, the incident Monday night occurred as police were moving down the street with an armored vehicle. 

Photographer Karl Lund, who took the video footage, told KMOV, “They (gunshots) were all over the place, hitting the truck and hitting the street, it was like someone was aimlessly firing.”

Police can been seen in the video asking members of the crowd if they are okay after the shots are fired. 

Lund believes one man may have been hit in the hand, according to the report. 

It is not known if the shooter(s) were caught.
