An eyewitness video emerged showing people running for safety after a gunman shot at protesters with a handgun in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Monday.
The demonstration was demanding that the statue of Juan de Oñate, New Mexico’s 16th-century colonial governor be removed.
Oñate remains a controversial figure in New Mexico and is particularly infamous for the 1599 massacre of a Pueblo tribe.
The gunman was chased away by protesters before shots were heard off-camera.
The video was filmed by members of the rights group Fight For Our Lives.
One man was wounded in the shooting and taken to a local hospital, but his current condition remains unknown local media reports.
