Update 2. 6:16 pm
2 people were detained a bit ago and they are being tested but I believe initial reports are that they had no residue. Fox news and the secret service just confirmed as well about 30 minutes ago.
Update 1. 5:08pm
2 suspicious packages being checked out after being left unattended close to the Marriot.
What we know so far;
Officers at the RNC locations are being attacked with chemicals in spray form and members of the crowd are approaching them with needles and stabbing them. Chemical Hazard stickers are then being taken from the devices and placed on the officers. Many have been rushed to the hospital but the numbers are not known at this time.
One officer reported being sprayed and then he could not feel his hand.
Requests are going out for numerous squads to reinforce specific locations and they are in a chase for 2 suspects as well.
We will update as new information is released.
