A person marching with a group of protesters from Milwaukee to Washington, D.C., was shot in Schellsburg, Pennsylvania, on Monday night, according to a protest leader Tory Lowe.

The man who was shot is a Milwaukee resident and goes by the name Cino, Lowe said. He was sprayed with bird shot and was struck in his face and side.


Cino was released Tuesday afternoon from a hospital in Johnstown, a city about 60 miles west of Pittsburgh.


The group was marching late Monday night along U.S. 30, also known as Lincoln Highway, through Bedford County. According to Lowe, the group paused at the bottom of a curved hill, near a salvage yard, and was trying to decide whether to climb it {snip}

Apparently a neighbor, watching from his window, contacted his adult son about the group resting outside his home, Lowe said. As some members of the group climbed the hill to see how steep it was, the son emerged from a home at the top of the hill and began shooting.

The man was about half a block away when he started firing his gun indiscriminately and yelling to “get the (expletive) out of here,” Lowe said. The man also called the group the n-word, according to Lowe.


The two Pennsylvania men were being questioned by state police investigators Tuesday morning. No one was in custody as of Tuesday afternoon and no charges had been filed.
