(KMOV.com) – Photographer Karl Lund said he was scared being in the midst of the clashes between protesters and police in Ferguson Tuesday night.

“Pretty scared, we didn’t know what to expect and didn’t expect gun fire,” Lund said.

Lund said he was laying low as police moved in with an armored vehicle after shots were fired.

“They (gunshots) were all over the place, hitting the truck and hitting the street, it was like someone was aimlessly firing,” Lund said.

Lund said one man appeared to be hit in the hand. It was same man a News 4 camera captured as he was driven to the police line at Ferguson and West Florissant. With help, he staggered to officers who took him in.
