PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- A man drove through a crowd protesting the fatal shooting of Antwon Rose on Sunday afternoon.

Protesters were marching along Route 30 in North Versailles around 5 p.m. and had shut down part of the highway when a man reportedly drove through the crowd.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette captured video of a police officer handcuffing the driver and placing him in the back of a police car. The Post-Gazette reports several protesters were hit, but there were no major injuries.



The protests began around 3 p.m. in East Pittsburgh on Grandview Avenue. Protesters marched toward the area where Rose was shot before moving onto Route 30.

Police advised drivers to avoid the area.



So far, police have not released the name of the driver. It's not known if he'll face any charges related to the incident.


Protesters have taken to the streets and shut down major roadways multiple times since Rose was killed in June, and this isn't the first time a driver went through the crowd.

Gregory Wagner, 58, was caught on video driving through a crowd of protesters near PNC Park. He is facing multiple charges.
