The group of people were gathered for a vigil against police brutality after U.S. Marshals fatally shot Winston Boogie Smith Jr., a Black man, earlier this month. The driver steered his car through the crowd at a high rate of speed at about 11:39 p.m. at the intersection of Lake Street and Girard Avenue. It had been reported that protesters pulled the suspect, a white man, from his car and held him until police arrived and took him into custody.

Here’s video of a man in the crowd detaining the suspect with a choke hold as the injured woman lay dying in the street.

Warning, the footage is graphic.
