One man was killed Saturday during protests in Louisville, Kentucky, after an individual involved in the protesters opened fire before being wounded by other armed protesters and later arrested by police. “The man had been participating in the protests since they began and had been arrested a couple of times over the past several weeks. He had been repeatedly asked by other members in the park to leave due to his disruptive behavior,” Louisville Assistant Chief of Police Robert Schroeder said of suspect Steve Lopez, according to Fox News. “In addition to this man, multiple other people in the park were armed at the time of the incident, and our homicide investigators are still working to identify all of the parties who may have fired during the incident,” he said.
