BALTIMORE – Did Baltimore cops shoot a man Monday afternoon or not? Well, depends on who you ask. There are so many different versions of what went down that it’ll make your head spin.

Let’s break it down for you.

The major miscommunication began Monday afternoon when a Fox News reporter claimed he witnessed Baltimore cops shoot a black man in the same spot where riots broke out over the death of Freddie Gray last week.

Several people at the scene also say they saw officers shoot the man. Social media went wild when pictures of the man on a stretcher started circulating.

Baltimore police then took to Twitter denying officers shot anyone.

According to cops, the man “fell” while running from police, accidentally discharging his own revolver, but no one was shot.

Many Baltimore residents aren’t buying the cops’ version at all. I guess we’ll have to wait until the suspect is released from jail until we know what really went down.

While all this was unfolding, President Obama was speaking live about the recent happenings in Baltimore, completely unaware of the newest confusion.
