AP — Authorities say a man drove a car at protesters in Seattle Sunday night, hit a barricade then got out of the vehicle brandishing a pistol.

At least one person was injured. The Seattle Fire Department said the victim was a 27-year-old male who was shot and taken to a hospital in stable condition.

Video taken by a reporter for The Seattle Times showed part of the scene in the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, where demonstrators had gathered for days near a police precinct.
