A CAR has reportedly driven into a Black Lives Matter protest before a passenger fired several rounds into the air from the window.
The attack is said to have taken place in Portland, Oregon, as demonstrators marched after the death of George Floyd at the hands of two Minneapolis cops.
Witness Donovan Farley said: “Random guy just drove nearly into people, things were totally fine, he started leave when folks cooled and then for some reason dude pulls out a pistol and shoots into the air while he drives away.
“Dude was drunk or something. Everyone freaked at first, but then things were chill as people with bullhorns told people to move.
“Someone then got into the vehicle as as they drove off popped off three shots in between the JC and the courthouse as they drove away.”
“The guy was surrounded and not super aggressive after driving essentially into the midst of the crowd. He was totally free and gone and folks backed off, but then shot a pistol.”
