One killed in Indianapolis by gunfire during racial protests

Three people have been shot and one of them died last night in Indianapolis during the racial protests that have been taking place in different parts of the United States since the death of the African-American George Floyd when he was detained by the Police in Minneapolis last Monday.

The shooting took place during protests in downtown Indianapolis and hit at least three people, city police chief Randal Taylor told a news conference in statements collected by CNN.

Authorities have not yet provided further details of what the shooting was like and have asked citizens to avoid the area of ​​the incidents.

Protests and racial unrest returned to the streets of different cities in the United States this Saturday, with Minneapolis (Minnesota) as the epicenter, where thousands of people demonstrated against police violence against African-Americans, despite the fact that curfews were declared in several zones.

Thirty American cities, from Los Angeles to Chicago, passing through Cleveland, Washington DC and New York, are the scene of protests for the death of George Floyd, a black man, who died at the hands of the police last Monday in Minneapolis.
