Fox News reporter Mike Tobin initially said he witnessed police chase down a young black suspect and shoot him. An "eyewitness" also told Fox News that she saw an officer shoot the suspect "in the back."

There were reports that the single gunshot witnesses heard resulted from the suspect dropping a revolver on the pavement, causing it to accidentally fire.

"We were wrong," Fox News host Shepherd Smith said on Monday. "Our people on scene were wrong...Unless there is new information to come forward."
