Cleveland police officers were shot at in an encounter with dirt bike riders. Keep scrolling to see the video.

Back in August on the West Side of Cleveland (near West 65th), police were attempting to clear a large crowd. During this process, a dirt bike rider crashed his vehicle. When police went to question him, another dirt bike rider circled around all of them on his bike.

In the video, you’ll see the officers asking the crashed biker if he has a gun on him. Moments later, an officer can be heard yelling ‘shots fired!’ several times.

It was later discovered that one of the police cars had a gunshot in it. Officers attempt to find shell casings as others pursued the suspects with their sirens blazing.
