Here's a sampling of what was yelled at the officer as he made his way to a patrol car:

  • "No white cops!"
  • "Get your white face outta here!"
  • "I'll knock you the f*** out!"
  • "Go get you some donuts and get the f*** outta here!"

Others in the crowd appeared to try to help the officer, with some yelling variations of "let him get in the car!"

Anything else?

Also regard to the shooting in question, an Atlanta police spokesperson told WXIA-TV the victim was shot in the leg and is "alert, conscious, and breathing."

The station, citing a report from Officer Steve Avery, said police were dispatched to the 100 block of University Avenue at about 10:45 p.m. after receiving reports of a person shot.

Investigators found 24-year-old Mahima Dhesi who told them she was at a vigil or protest in the area and a bald black male appeared to be randomly shooting when she was hit in the leg, WXIA said.

Avery said the victim was reported in stable condition, the station said, adding that a witness told police a white male and female drove up and started shooting at the crowd.
