A man has been shot dead at a Breonna Taylor protest in Louisville after a white man opened fire on peaceful demonstrators in a crowded park, according to local police.

At least two people were shot – one fatally – in the incident at Jefferson Square Park in downtown Louisville, Kentucky, at around 9 p.m. Saturday.

Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies performed life-saving measures on an unidentified male victim but he died at the scene.

The shooting took place at the park that has become a focal point for the city’s protests demanding justice for Taylor, the black EMT who was gunned down by cops in her apartment back in March.

Disturbing footage on social media shows the moment the shooter aims his gun at the masses of people peacefully protesting and fires multiple shots.

Screams can be heard as people scramble for cover from the hail of bullets.
