The man who goes by the name Balin Brake, 21 years got fired at the head with a gas canister, hitting his eyes by a FWPD officer.
After the incident, Brake was scheduled for surgery on Sunday, May 31, stating he may lose his eye after surgery.
He eventually lost the eye, talking to ABC21, Brake said his damaged eye has been removed, leaving him with just one eye.
Reacting to the incident in a statement released late Sunday, FWPD officials said:
“According to our officers on the ground, the protester was still in the area after commands to leave the area were given.
Gas was deployed in the area and the protester bent over to pick up the canister to throw it back at officers as many others were trying to do.
When he bent over another canister was deployed in the area and that canister skipped and hit the protester in the eye.
There was no deliberate deployment of gas to any persons head.”
A woman was also seriously wounded during a rally when police officers shot a rubber bullet at her.
Gaping hole in the center of the woman’s forehead can be seen in a photo posted online, with blood running down her nose.
