A police commissioner has suspended two officers following video that shows a Buffalo officer appearing to shove a man who walked up to police.
Video from WBFO shows the man appearing to hit his head on the pavement, with blood leaking out as officers walk past to clear Niagara Square on Thursday night.
The station reports two medics treated the unidentified man.
Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown said the man, 75, is in a serious condition.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo condemned the incident as “wholly unjustified and utterly disgraceful”.
