Driver plows into protesters and kills woman before he is pulled from car and beaten at site where armed black man Winston Smith was shot dead by cops

A driver has ploughed into protesters and killed a woman at the site of protests over the shooting of armed black man Winston Smith.

The driver was pulled from his car and beaten by the crowd before being taken away in handcuffs by police late on Sunday in the Uptown area of Minneapolis. 

Two protesters were rushed to hospital after being struck by the car, with one described as ‘very critical.’ One of them, a woman, died in the early hours of Monday. 

They were demonstrating outside a parking garage where 32-year-old Smith was shot dead earlier this month after he pulled a gun and fired on US Marshals trying to arrest him on a warrant for possession of a firearm.

The driver was pulled from his car and beaten by the crowd before being taken away in handcuffs by police late on Sunday in the Uptown area of Minneapolis.

Footage shows the driver on the ground after he sped into the site at Lake Street and S. Girard Avenue at around 11.40pm.

A man holds the suspect in a choke hold on the road as blood pours down his forehead.

The person filming shouts: ‘This n**** just came through 100 miles an hour, smashed this car and he just f***ing killed her.’

The camera pans to a badly damaged SUV across the street where a woman can be seen receiving treatment from first responders.   

The suspect is seen being hauled around by a man who keeps his arm firmly around his neck.

As he pleads for police, the cameraman tells him: ‘You’re going down boy, you’re going down, it’s over. You bitch.’

The suspect replies: ‘I did not mean to.’ 

Police said that a man was in custody but did not reveal any motive.
