OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- The Iraq War veteran injured when anti-Wall Street protesters clashed with police in Oakland has been upgraded to fair condition.
A hospital spokesman says 24-year-old Scott Olsen's was moved from the emergency room to the intensive care unit on Thursday.
Olsen apparently suffered a fractured skull Tuesday in a march with other protesters toward Oakland City Hall. The demonstrators were trying to re-establish a presence in the area of a disbanded protesters' camp when they were met by officers.
It's not known exactly what type of object struck Olsen or who might have thrown it, though the group Iraq Veterans Against the War said officers were responsible for his injury.
Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan says officials will investigate whether officers used excessive force.
