Detroit Man, 21, Dies After Shooter Driving a Van Fired Into Crowd of Protesters

A 21-year-old man in Detroit, Michigan, was shot and killed when an unknown suspect fired shots into an occupied car on Friday night.

The unidentified victim was shot around 11:30 p.m. local time when a man approached a silver Dodge Caliber, occupied by the victim and two other men, and fired shots into the vehicle, police said in a Saturday statement, according to CBS News.

All three men fled, but the shooter continued to fire bullets and killed the 21-year-old, who was driving the car.

The victim from Eastpointe was taken to the hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

The shooting occurred downtown where protests against police brutality were taking place. Police have not confirmed whether the victim was part of the protests.

Earlier that same day, Craig spoke out against Chauvin, who has now been charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter. The cases of three other police officers present at the time of Floyd's May 25 death are still under investigation.

“Given what I saw in the video, the fact that this officer allegedly murdered. There was clear evidence to suggest there was probable cause to arrest this officer for murder,” Craig said Thursday, according to local news station WDET.

“We all share the disappointment for the dishonor it brings to our badge,” he added.
