19-Year-Old Teenager Dead After Police Shot Fires At George Floyd Protestors

Incident

A 19-year-old has been killed after shots were fired at a crowd of people as protests environing George Floyd continue in the US. The firing took place near Detroit’s Greektown entertainment district in Michigan on Friday night as police officers faced with dozens of protesters. Sergeant Nicole Kirkwood, a police department spokesperson, confirmed that any of the officers were not involved in the shooting.

Victim Died

The victim, a 19-year-old man, was declared dead in hospital. The suspect pulled up to the crowd in a Dodge Durango and fired shots at around 11.30 pm.

Details Of Victim

No further details about the victim or the person who fired the shot or shots were promptly available, police said. Mobs took to the streets in the city after a former Minneapolis police officer was charged with manslaughter over the death of Mr. Floyd, a black man who was handcuffed and begged for air as an officer thrust his knee on his neck for several minutes during the arrest.

Officers, many in riot gear, faced the protesters and formed lines across streets. Various numbers of arrests were made and police said many were not Detroit residents.

Gas Containers

By midnight, the crowd had expanded considerably as police shot containers of gas toward the protesters. The presentation began earlier in the day and was peaceful as protesters marched by Detroit Police Headquarters.

Police chief James Craig reported to reporters earlier in the evening: We know that the people from outside the city of Detroit who gathered at the turmoil location don’t represent this city. The number of arrests and injuries were not promptly available.
