Albuquerque: Inside the Protest
(KOB) Albuquerque's police chief says tear gas was used to break up Sunday night's massive protest after officers spotted a man carrying an assault rifle.
Officers say the protester was carrying a loaded AK-47.
Other protestors urged the man to put that gun away, and he did put it back into his van, but APD said they watched that man then re- enter the crowd, and not knowing whether he had other weapons, considered that to be a threat.
"We did not know what else he may or may not be armed with. The crowd had grown more and more unruly," APD Gorden Eden said.
