Police say Nobody was Shot Despite Witnesses Stating the Contrary

After a Fox News reporter announced on live television that Baltimore police had shot a man, police later tweeted that nobody had been shot.

However, numerous people in the area also reported that a man had been shot in the back before police began pepper spraying people.

While it appears the first report may not be true, there is no doubt the second report is true as you can see from the photo above.

Police say the “shooting involved a man with a gun running from police who may have dropped the gun. Fox News, who initially reported witnessing the shooting, said the gun may have gone off after he had dropped it.

The incident took place shortly before 2:45 p.m. A video recorded by PINAC correspondent Alex Salazar, who is on the scene, was uploaded to Facebook showing cops chasing people away as several people say they just shot a man in the back.

Another video posted to Twitter from another videographer from another location near the scene shows a similar scenario, but so far, nothing has surfaced showing the shooting or the victim, but that might only be a matter of time.

Both videos are below.

Fox News initially reported the following:

It’s unclear what prompted the shooting. A Fox News crew witnessed a young black male running from police before he was shot.
It’s not known whether the unidentified man was armed. A gun was reportedly found nearby on a sidewalk.
A crowd quickly formed around the man, who was seen on a stretcher as he was being loaded into an ambulance. His condition is unknown.

Police then said that nobody was shot.

UPDATE II: The Blaze is reporting that police were chasing a man with a gun who ended dropping the gun, causing it go off, which is what led witnesses, including reporters from Fox News, to think he had been shot.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
