One shooting killed one person and injured at least one other among the protesters.

Un man was fatally injured Saturday night by gunshot during a demonstration against racism under the banner “Black Lives Matter” in Louisville, in the center of the United States, where the death in March of a black woman, killed by the police in his apartment in March had provoked intense emotion.

The death of Breonna Taylor had been followed by numerous protests against police violence, which then took on an unprecedented scale with the death of George Floyd, an African American who was asphyxiated by a white police officer on May 25.

Local Louisville police, alerted by a call, said they had found a man seriously injured by gunshot in Jefferson Square Park, where the protest was taking place.

“The police tried to save him, but without success,” said the police on Twitter.

Shortly afterwards, another person was shot in front of the park. Police said they did not know if there was a single shooter or two, and gave no details on the victims.

On video images, we see a man firing dozens of shots and demonstrators trying to find shelter between tents or benches in the park. Police said a man died on the spot and another person was taken to hospital. The days of the latter are not in danger, reports the New York Times.

Earlier in the evening, city mayor Greg Fischer asked the protesters to stay away from the park. The Louisville Courier Journal had indeed revealed that “armed patriotic groups” intended to confront the demonstrators.

The Black Lives Matter events have been particularly lively in Louisville since the death of Breonna Taylor. The 26-year-old nurse was at home with her partner when three police officers knocked on her door without warning.

The officers, equipped with a search warrant, were acting on an erroneous wanted poster concerning a suspect who no longer lived in the building and who was already detained. They hit the young woman with at least eight bullets.
