Police: Vehicle plows into Minnesota protesters, killing 1

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Police say a woman was killed and three other people were injured when a vehicle drove into demonstrators in Minneapolis.

Witnesses say the demonstrators were hit Sunday night when the SUV struck a parked car, tossing it into the crowd in the Uptown neighborhood.

Police say protesters pulled the suspect from his vehicle. He was taken into custody and is being treated for injuries. Police say drugs or alcohol may have been a factor. The Star Tribune reports that a family member identified the woman who died as Deona Knajdek.

There have been protests in Uptown since the June 3 fatal shooting of Winston Boogie Smith Jr., a Black man who was killed by members of a federal task force.
