Occupiers have clashed with police in City Hall Park this evening after police tried to close down the encampment following a fatal shooting.

Mayor Bob Kiss talked police into releasing a detained woman. The situation intensified after a meeting between occupiers and police at 6 p.m. in City Hall.
