According to police, the driver suffered a gunshot wound, but the injury is not life-threatening.
“Several protesters began crowding around the vehicle. A male protester ran to the SUV on the passenger side, pointed a handgun at the driver and shot one round,” said Deputy Chief John Geyerman, Provo PD.
Additional video footage taken by videographer Hootie Hennessey shows rioters climbing on a different SUV which was attempting to drive through the mob and a rioter throwing a bottle at a minivan.
