Occupy Oakland: Video shows wounded protester after police clash

A video of Tuesday night's clash between Oakland police and Occupy Oakland protesters shows one of the demonstrators injured after apparently being hit with a police projectile. (Warning: vulgar expletive at  end of video.)

Police used tear gas to clear the crowd after officials said some demonstrators threw objects at officers.

The video shows a man on the ground with a head wound. As protesters gather to help the man, police fire another projectile into the crowd.
