Video: KOMO Reporter Shomari Stone Breaks Up Fight in Downtown Seattle

“Instinct just snapped in,” said KOMO reporter Shomari Stone, explaining why he jumped in to break up a fight in downtown Seattle (video above).

Stone was out on assignment near Seattle’s waterfront when he and his photographer witnessed an altercation between a group of men nearby. One man jumped on top of another and began repeatedly punching him in the head.  That’s when Jones rushed in and tackled the assailant.  He broke up the fight and a witness called 9-1-1.

According to police officers, the man that Stone saved was possibly a white supremacist. When the victim, whose arms were covered in swastika tattoos, approached Stone to thank him after the incident, Stone, who is African-American, told the man, “Remember to judge the man by his character and not the color of his skin.”
