Conflicting reports after gun fired in Baltimore, tensions at site of protests

Tensions are high in the North West of Baltimore following a gun shot. Eyewitnesses say police fired at a man. Officers claim it was the man's gun that fired when he dropped it.

The incident happened close to the intersection of Pennsylvania and North avenues in Baltimore near the epicenter of where protests have occurred in the days since the arrest and death last month of Freddie Gray, a young black man, according to a commander with the Baltimore Police Dept.

A BPD commander at the scene told a journalist with the Baltimore Sun that police were trying to arrest an armed man when that person’s gun fell and went off.

Meanwhile, the BPD wrote on Twitter that “the reports of a man being shot at North and Pennsylvania Ave are NOT true.”

Taking us for another spin no doubt. 

"A Fox News crew witnessed a young black male running from police before he was shot. "

Convenient...

At 1:30 in the video above Shepard Smith yells "stop it" then says "ooh, I didn't mean for that to be on tv" after the reporter asks a cop a question about how big the crowd was going to get.

So nobody was shot and yet there was a gunshot and they took the man out on a stretcher...

This a story worth keeping a close eye on
