Guy in the suit next to the police officer, secret service? To me it looks like he has an ear piece in. Maybe he is just a TV reporter.
He is some form of LEO, as is everyone in the picture except the guy with the bag, who is a witness. The guy with the ear piece was talking to a female officer who really didn't need to be in the photo so I cropped her out. If there were room I would have cropped him out. Preferably I would have moved forward and to my right and gotten a shot more focused on just the yelling officer but I couldn't because I would have had to walk into the street to do so.
An 18-year-old was stabbed in the neck right behind where the officer is standing about 5 minutes before I took that shot. They were literally in the middle of putting up the crime scene tape right then, which is why you see it in the reflected in the mirror. However, it was not yet up on the side the officer is facing, so he was yelling at some people who were trying to approach the area, telling them to go around. They were not listening at first which is why he looks a little pissed.
There was a crowd of reporters to my right talking to a woman who had witnessed the altercation and assault, but none in my shot.
