LOS ANGELES (AP) — Three Los Angeles police officers suffered minor injuries as they arrested a homeless man on Skid Row who confronted a TV news crew.

Phil Shuman, a reporter for Fox affiliate KTTV-TV ( ), says the crew was filming around noon Wednesday in the wake of a weekend police shooting on Skid Row that killed a homeless man.

Shuman says the crew was in front of the Midnight Mission when a man twice tried to grab a TV camera, damaging it.

A cameraman called 911. Arriving officers confronted and tackled the man. Police say he grabbed an officer's holster and was shocked twice with a stun gun.

Three officers received minor injuries. Police say one was bitten, another had a forehead cut and a third hurt his elbow.
