The American police announced that one of its members was wounded by gunfire in the Brooklyn neighborhood, New York City, on Tuesday, noting that the suspect is in a critical condition.
A police source said: “The suspect shot at least one person in the area of Kingsboro Houses’ public housing project, before the police arrived and shot him,” according to Reuters.
“Initial information indicated that the incident that occurred after nine o’clock was not related to the protests against the killing of George Floyd, who was killed after a policeman pressed his neck last week, or the protests that followed,” the source said.
Tens of thousands demonstrated in the streets of major American cities on Tuesday, for the eighth consecutive night of protests against the killing of George Floyd, in defiance of the mayors’ appeals and the strict curfew, and other measures aimed at stopping the protests.
