Man gunfire and killed as protests for George Floyd death continue in Detroit
A 19-year-old man was gunfired and killed after shots were fired into a crowd of protesters in Detroit late Friday, the city’s police department said in a statement.
Police said the gunfire were fired by an unrevealed suspect in a gray Dodge Durango, with the victim later dying in hospital.
Detroit police cannot report if the victim was part of the protests, but the shooting happened in the mean street where the protests were taking place.
Earlier, Detroit Police Chief James Craig said a person had been taken into custody after trying to run an officer over.
“I will not stand by and let a small minority, criminals, come in here, attack our officers and make our community unsafe. Just know, we are not going to tolerate it,” Craig said.
But the governor said officials cannot arrest people while they are trying to hold ground. This led to President Trump’s tweet on Twitter stating that, the governor should take action who he will do it for him.
