BLM Protester Shot by Homeowner While on March to Washington

A man taking part in a Black Lives Matter protest march from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Washington, D.C. was injured after someone apparently fired at a group of protesters from the driveway of their Pennsylvania home.

The incident was captured on a Facebook livestream by the protest group's leader Frank Sensabaugh, also known as Frank Nitty, on Monday night. It occurred in Cambria County, Pennsylvania, a spokesperson for Pennsylvania State Police confirmed to Newsweek.

In the stream Nitty and his group are seen standing in a street when a sound they identify as a gunshot is heard coming from a house. "Y'all get back to the cars... y'all get in the cars! He over here with a gun," Nitty is heard saying to other people in the video.

"You don't have to be violent. We're leaving, you don't have to be violent," a man is heard yelling at two people standing in the driveway. One of them appears to be armed with a rifle.

"This dude shooting at us," Nitty adds, pointing the camera at the people in the driveway. At that point, a vehicle in the street moves forward, blocking the view of the two people, and shots are heard.

Some of the group quickly jump into a vehicle with the injured man and Nitty, who continues filming.

They attempt to stem the injured man's bleeding and apply pressure to his wound as they try to locate the nearest hospital. The injured man, identified by Nitty and other members of the group only as Cino, is heard mentioning that he was hit with buckshot.

In another video, Nitty is seen holding and comforting the man, whose bloodstained shirt is visible.

Some of the group are seen inside a hospital in another video livestreamed on Nitty's Facebook page. A man in the video identifies the hospital as the Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

He also says hospital staff didn't allow members of the group to wait inside the hospital because of a COVID-19 policy.

A supervisor with the Cambria County Department of Emergency Services told WISN dispatchers received a call from Nitty's group while they were on their way to the hospital. The supervisor said investigators are working to determine where the shooting happened.

Pennsylvania State Police said two individuals are being questioned in relation to the incident. State police have been contacted for additional comment.

Nitty started his march on August 4 to raise awareness about police brutality and racial injustice.

He hopes to reach the nation's capital by August 28, the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have A Dream" speech.

But in one of the captions alongside the livestreamed videos on Monday night, Nitty mentioned that he may forego finishing the march to return to Wisconsin, where protests have broken out in the city of Kenosha after the police shooting of Jacob Blake on Sunday.
