Smoke Seen as Police Clash With Protesters in Washington During Night of Unrest

Police clashed with protesters in Washington DC on October 27 during demonstrations over the death of a black man during a police chase.

Video filmed by Katie King shows smoke filling a street in Washington. A loud bang can also be heard towards the end of the footage.

The man identified in local media as Karon Hylton reportedly crashed while riding a moped. Media reported he was being pursued by DC police for riding on the sidewalk without a helmet. Hylton collided with a passenger vehicle and later died in hospital after being administered first aid by police.

Protesters near the Metropolitan Police Department’s Fourth District building demanded the body-worn camera video be released, according to reports. Credit: Katie King via Storyful
