A car that drove into a group of protesters Tuesday afternoon in Minneapolis hit several people who were rallying for justice for Michael Brown a day after a St. Louis grand jury decided not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for fatally shooting Brown. According to video taken by helicopter for news station KSTP, a vehicle can be seen slowly running over those gathered.  

According to the news station, several protesters gathered around the vehicle as it stopped, and suddenly the driver of the vehicle took off again, hitting several people in the process.
