Protests against racism and police violence continued over the weekend. In Louisville, Kentucky, a gunman fired more than a dozen rounds into a crowd of protesters late Saturday, killing one person, injuring another and sending scores diving for cover. Twenty-seven-year-old photographer Tyler Gerth, a vocal supporter of the protests, died at the scene. Police arrested 23-year-old Steven Nelson Lopez and charged him with murder and wanton endangerment. After the shooting, authorities ordered an end to a protest encampment which is demanding justice for Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old African American emergency medic who was shot to death by Louisville police inside her own apartment in March. No officers have been charged in her killing.
