A woman was shot in the leg during a protest Friday night near the Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was shot in the back and killed.
The protest, which was held on Juneteenth, was peaceful until suddenly, shots rang out. Eyewitnesses say they heard around 20 shots, and you can certainly hear a number of them in the video.
The woman who was shot was conscious and her injuries seem to be non-life-threatening. She was taken to a hospital by ambulance.
