Police say the group fired mortars and Roman candles at officers and a news crew. Authorities say one officer was hit in the back and a reporter was struck in the back of the head.

No one was seriously injured.

Police set up a perimeter shortly after the fireworks went off but they were unable to find anyone. No arrests have been made.
