A Detroit police officer drove into a crowd of protesters late Sunday night after people marching against police brutality surrounded the SUV and some jumped on the hood.
Detroit police spokeswoman Sgt. Nicole Kirkwood told The Detroit Free Press that the department is investigating the actions of both the protesters and the officer who was driving.
The rally was organized by several civil rights organizations fighting against systemic racism, police brutality, deportations, and evictions and water shutoffs which have been an ongoing issue in the city.

One protester who was at the event, Jae Bass, said he tried to stand in front of the police SUV to stop it before it endangered protesters.
