An LAPD police officer suffered a gunshot wound to the leg in a Venice, California amid the protests following the tragic killing of George Floyd. The incident occurred around 4:30pm on Sunday in a Whole Foods parking lot as protesters and rioters continue making their presence known. The injured officer is seen strapped to a gourney before an ambulance transported her to a local hospital.

Following the shooting, hundreds of citizens continued to line the streets of Venice to deliver their cries for justice. As a fleet of LAPD officers arrived to the scene, the group of peaceful demonstrators asked for solidarity with police by chanting, "walk with us!"

Before the looting and violence began, hundreds of peaceful protesters gathered in Venice Beach and participated in positive talks with the local police departments. As the days passed, protests ultimately morphed into violence and looting.
