LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles police have been involved in a violent scuffle on Skid Row after an apparently homeless man confronted a TV news crew.
Phil Shuman, a reporter for Fox affiliate KTTV-TV (http://bit.ly/1zYRNLY ), says the crew was filming around noon Wednesday in the wake of a weekend police shooting on Skid Row that killed a homeless man.
Shuman says the crew was in front of the Midnight Mission when a man twice tried to grab a TV camera, damaging it.
A cameraman called 911. Arriving officers confronted and tackled the man. Police say he grabbed an officer's holster and was shocked twice with a stun gun.
Three officers received minor injuries. Police say one was bitten, another had a forehead cut and a third hurt his elbow.
