Watch: Car Hits Protester At Ferguson Rally, Shots Fired

A day of peaceful commemoration of the second anniversary of Michael Brown’s death was marred Tuesday night when gunfire broke out after a protester was struck by a motorist.

After a quiet morning vigil and evening church service, the night turned violent when a car struck a protester standing on West Florissant Avenue.

Others among the roughly 75 protesters began trying to cut off the car, which then reversed direction to try to avoid the crowd, according to several witnesses.

At that point, witnesses said, several protesters pulled out guns and began chasing and firing at the fleeing car.

    It’s a comedy, right? Everyone is recording with their phone, not calling 911. How are police to know someone was hit if no one calls? What was the guy out in the road for? I didn’t see a cross walk. He seemed to be just standing there. They all have to run over to gawk at the guy and suck all his oxygen, but don’t render aid. Someone finally picks up the injured guy (not good) and carries him off as gunfire erupts. Someone shrieks “those cops are just sitting over there”. Has anyone bothered to call them yet? The gunfire has probably attracted their attention.
    Why do these people think it is OK to fire at a car driving away, when the same group is protesting the police in Chicago doing just that? It doesn’t seem to be equality they want at all, but special privilege to act outside the law. Black Lies Matter moves down another peg in the reliability area.

    It is just plain stupidity to protest police presence by standing in the middle of traffic after dark, just for starters. Then when someone pulls out a gun and starts shooting who is it they want to come help ’em out? Oh, it’s the very same police officers they’re protesting..

    “the cops are not doing anything” how funny, “peaceful protestors” pull out guns and start shooting and they expect the police to do something,

      The irony is too much.

      peaceful protesters and a stupid white lady in the mix, nobody seem to really care about calling the ambulance for the idiot standing in the road. I guess he never thought that when its really really dark outside, black people are hard to see especially when they are wearing midnight blue. Too, funny. I am sorry I feel no sympathy for that stupidity, he actually thought someone was going to slow down for him. Hell he was like the invisible man until he hit the front of the car.
