Last night, in Detroit, a city that has taken decades to rebuild after the 1967 race riots left a once-thriving city in ruins, protesters took the newly refurbished streets of Detroit to protest an act of police brutality over 540 miles away in Minneapolis, MN. Thanks to rioters, looters, arsonists, and the violent Antifa thugs, the twin cities of Minneapolis, and St. Paul, MN are cities that are about to suffer the same fate Detroit suffered over 60 years ago.

While protesters filled the streets, Detroit Police officers, who’ve been hit especially hard by COVID19, tried to keep them from destroying the city. While Detroit Police were pushing back the crowds, a silver Dodge Caliber pulled up and fired shots into the crowd. A 19-year-old man was shot and killed.

A Fox News reporter was in the middle of a live broadcast when the shooting happened. A local Detroit Fox reporter, named “Jessica,” can be heard speaking to the camera when she pauses, “Oh, shit!—Oh, shit!” she can be heard saying. “It appears that we’ve heard some gunshots possibly. Apologies for the language, but we didn’t know what the noise was.” The reporter appeared to be stunned, as she tried to explain that she heard sounds that could’ve been gunshots, but thought they might be firecrackers.

The rattled local FOX reporter confirmed, “Someone did get shot!”

The Detroit News – The shooting occurred at 11:30 p.m. in a parking lot near Congress and Randolph when someone approached a silver Dodge Caliber and fired shots.

Inside the vehicle was a 21-year-old man from East Pointe, who was driving, and two other unknown men. All the occupants inside the vehicle, including the victim, fled from the vehicle, police said.

The shooter fled the scene in an unknown direction on foot; the victim was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The shooting occurred as Detroit News reporter was doing a Facebook Live video of the protest. In the video, shots can be heard, prompting people to run from the area as others call out for the police to provide aid. (Warning: Graphic language and content.)
