The violent Black Lives Matter movement doesn’t seem to grasp that standing in the middle of a busy street as cars buzz by can be a dangerous prospect.

Gunshots rang out Tuesday in Ferguson, Missouri, during a protest marking the second anniversary of Michael Brown being killed while violently attacking a police officer after a protester was struck by a car, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

The incident was captured on video and after the collision, members of the group opened fire on the car.

Ferguson spokesman Jeff Small told the newspaper the woman driver was being “very, very cooperative” with police and did not appear to intentionally hit the protester.

“By all accounts, her version of what happened seems to fit the version of what happened to a person driving down a busy West Florissant Avenue and not seeing a person standing there,” Small said.

And while thought to be an apparent accident, the woman almost paid for it with her life as her car was pockmarked with bullet holes.

The Post-Dispatch reported that the extent of the injuries to the protester was unknown because he was taken from the scene in a private vehicle.
