Occupy Oakland Protestors Attack KGO Cameraman For Shooting Video of Murder Scene

KGO cameraman Randy Davis was attacked while trying to document the aftermath of a fatal shooting yesterday at Occupy Oakland. Davis suffered a mild concussion, as well as bumps and bruises, in the attack, according to a reporter at the ABC O&O.

Hurd began her report in the street as tear gas billowed in the background but had to quickly take shelter in a KNTV news van.  She finished the segment sitting in the passenger’s seat, wiping tears from her eyes (video above).
