FNC’s Cameron: Shot Fired, Fire Thrown at Mounted Police During Anti-Trump NM Protests

On Tuesday’s “Special Report,” Fox News Chief Political Correspondent Carl Cameron reported that during protests against presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s rally in New Mexico, “there was a shot fired. There was a bullet that shattered a glass window of this facility. At one point, a vendor, with Trump t-shirts and hats had his table overturned and someone tried to set that on fire. At another time, there was fire ‘thrown’ at some the mounted police who were trying to control the crowd.”

Cameron said, “[O]utside the parking lot, it at times had all of the makings of a potential riot. There is tear gas in the parking lot as we speak. Earlier in the evening, demonstrators outside tried to break their way into the building trying to knock down a door. They were unsuccessful in that. There was rock-throwing, name-calling, and a lot of scuffles. At one point, there was a shot fired. There was a bullet that shattered a glass window of this facility. At one point, a vendor, with Trump t-shirts and hats had his table overturned and someone tried to set that on fire. At another time, there was fire ‘thrown’ at some the mounted police who were trying to control the crowd.”

The Albquerque Police tweeted that there was “no confirmation” of gunshots, and damage to the Convention Center’s windows might be from a pellet gun.
