Seven people have been shot at a protest in Louisville, Kentucky - one of several demonstrations that have taken place in cities over the killings of black Americans by police.

At least one person is in critical condition.

It's not immediately clear how the shooting took place, but police say none of their officers fired their weapons.

Police also say they've made arrests, but that "the situation remains fluid," and gave no further details.

Protesters threw what appeared to be fireworks and made makeshift barricades, as a wall of police moved to control the crowds.

The protests in Louisville are over the killing of Breonna Taylor, an emergency medic, in March, when police hit the wrong apartment in a raid -- her apartment.

Late on Thursday, city mayor Greg Fischer shared a post on Twitter, which he said was written on behalf of Taylor's mother, urging protesters to be peaceful.

The Kentucky shootings come as separate protests in Minneapolis escalated overnight over the killing of George Floyd, the black man seen on video gasping for air and saying "please, I can't breathe", while a white police officer knelt on his neck.

    The shooting took place to make people think the police were at fault. More crazy tactics from the left.

    This IS NOT A "PROTEST" it is just a mob of ANGRY people LOOKING for a reason to act out the rage that they carry with them before the policeman and YES I will say MURDERED Floyd. But thing that I have come to realize over the years is that the African American people who carry on like this need to address their OWN MURDERING and HARMING of each other first then maybe just maybe a WHOLE lot of their issues would subside. Sure their is racism among other races against one another but the INTERNAL CONFLICT among African Americans themselves needs to STOP and then maybe they could start to HEAL as a race and culture. What is troubling to me is that the African American people are not seeing that most white people are just as angry about what happened to Floyd to but we are not going to go out and DESTROY other peoples property and inflict HARM to others because of our anger.
