We at 5 Eyewitness News are aware of a video circulating on social media that shows only a portion of a confrontation during the unrest in South Minneapolis on Wednesday night, involving one of our reporters, Richard Reeve.
There have been accusations that our reporter was playing sound effects of gunshots from his cell phone.
We have investigated what actually happened before the video on social media began recording.
Our reporter was using his cell phone to document the peaceful protest crowd that was moving down the street.
Wanting to confirm the sound he heard, he went to play back the video on his cell phone which indeed shows an individual shooting into the air.
