(AP) – A police spokeswoman says a person has been killed in downtown Detroit after someone fired shots into a vehicle during a protest over the death of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man who died in Minneapolis police custody.
The shooting occurred about 11:30 p.m. Friday near the city’s Greektown entertainment district as officers were confronted with dozens of protester.
Sgt. Nicole Kirkwood, a police spokeswoman, said police were not involved in the shooting. Kirkwood said the victim was a 21-year-old man, who was pronounced dead at a hospital. The man was in a vehicle with two other male occupants when shots were fired into the vehicle.
