Report: BLM Protester Shoots Driver As Mob Swarms SUV [Video]
Provo Utah saw some serious violence after a long day of peaceful protesting between opposing sides. Police say there was a planned police protest and a counter-protest on Monday and that everything was well until sometime around 8:30 pm. Police were called to respond to reports that shots were fired into a vehicle.
Provo police on Tuesday confirmed the driver of the SUV had been shot by one of the people in the crowd.
“Several protesters began crowding around the vehicle,” said John Geyerman, Provo Police deputy chief. “The male protester ran toward the SUV on the passenger side, pointed a handgun at the driver, and shot one round through the window. The driver who was struck by the bullet accelerated, trying to leave the situation. The same protester ran after the vehicle and fired a second shot that went through the rear passenger window.”
Officials said the same man who allegedly fired the shots into the SUV also approached another vehicle and broke the window with a handgun, according to KSLTV.
