Disturbing Video of Car Ploughing Into Black Lives Matter Protester - Followed by Gunshots - Emerges

Protesters were gathered by the side of the road in Ferguson Tuesday night to commemorate the second anniversary of Michael Brown's death when all hell broke loose. A grainy video shows a car hitting one of the protesters, and after a horrified crowd gathers around the man, gun shots are heard, scattering them.

One woman is heard screaming multiple times, "Oh, my God," and after the gunfire breaks out she exclaims that the "cops are just sitting over there," despite the evident pandemonium.

The man who was struck was reportedly helped to his feet, after flying into the air on impact. According the AP, a spokesman for Ferguson said it appears the driver did not hit the protester deliberately.
