Rioters were marching along a Colorado interstate on Saturday night to demand justice for Elijah McClain wound up fleeing for cover after a vehicle drove into the crowd and gunfire started.
Video taken at the scene of the protest on I-225 shows demonstrators dropping to the ground as shots ring out in the background. Multiple witnesses cited by The Sentinel said the gunfire was the result of a protester firing shots towards the vehicle as it plowed into demonstrators.
“While the protestors were walking on I-225, a vehicle decided to drive through the crowd. A protestor decided to fire off a weapon, striking at least 1 other protestor. They were transported to the hospital in stable condition,” police said in a statement on Twitter.
