The already turbulent scenes in Baltimore grew even more chaotic Monday afternoon following erroneous reports of a police shooting.
It started with this report from Fox News correspondent Mike Tobin, who claimed to have witnessed Baltimore police chasing down and shooting someone at the corner of North and Pennsylvania avenues.
Tobin told Shepard Smith: "You did have a gun on the scene. You have one individual who has been shot. He did not appear to be dead when they took him away in the ambulance, but he didn't look to be in good shape."
