|Seven people were shot in downtown Louisville, Ky., at a protest Thursday evening calling for justice for a 26-year-old black woman who was shot and killed in her apartment by police in March.
The protests started peacefully. But shortly after 11:30 p.m., shots were fired.
"While the situation is unfolding we know there were several hours of peaceful protest before some in the crowd turned violent, leaving some people being shot from within the crowd," Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer said in a video statement posted to Twitter early Friday morning.
It's not yet clear who shot people in the crowd, though the mayor said no officers fired weapons. He thanked police for ignoring risks to themselves to get aid to those who had been hurt.
The mayor has said that two of the victims require surgery.
"You asked for my hustle, I gave you my heart."
