DETROIT, Mich. — A police spokeswoman says a person has been killed in downtown Detroit after someone in an SUV fired shots into a crowd of people protesting George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis 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 department spokeswoman, said an officer wasn’t involved in the shooting.

Kirkwood said the victim was a 19-year-old man, who was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The suspect pulled up in a Dodge Durango and fired shots into the crowd, she said.
