‘Shots fired’ at Black Lives Matter protest as ‘car drives into crowd & passenger lets off rounds’ in Portland

A CAR has reportedly driven into a Black Lives Matter protest before a passenger fired several rounds into the air from the window.

The attack is said to have taken place in Portland, Oregon, as demonstrators marched after the death of George Floyd at the hands of two Minneapolis cops.

The car that reportedly drove towards crowds of Black Lives Matter protesters

Witness Donovan Farley said: “Random guy just drove nearly into people, things were totally fine, he started leave when folks cooled and then for some reason dude pulls out a pistol and shoots into the air while he drives away.

“Dude was drunk or something. Everyone freaked at first, but then things were chill as people with bullhorns told people to move.

“Someone then got into the vehicle as as they drove off popped off three shots in between the JC and the courthouse as they drove away.”

“The guy was surrounded and not super aggressive after driving essentially into the midst of the crowd. He was totally free and gone and folks backed off, but then shot a pistol.”


It comes after a Black Lives Matter protester knocked down and killed by a car on a Seattle highway earlier this week.

The crash killed 24-year-old protester Summer Taylor and seriously injured 32-year-old Diaz Love.

Last week eight-year-old Secoriea Turner was killed in Atlanta when her mother drove through an illegal barricade set up by activists near where African American Rayshard Brooks was shot on June 12.

The fast food outlet was later burned, and the area has since become a site for frequent Black Lives Matter demonstrations against police brutality.

The following evening a 53-year-old man was shot dead near the burned down Wendy’s restaurant.
