In the video, a police officer appears to be heard yelling to a reporter, "Get the fuck out of here and get that light off, or you're getting shot with this." However, the audio is not entirely clear. Later on, the reporter with KARG Argus radio quotes the police officer as having said to him, "Get the fuck out of here or I will shoot you with this."
Update: This post has been updated to reflect some of the difficulty in hearing some of the words in the audio recording.
