Gregory was shot around 8:30 p.m. by a man who police said tried to drive his car into a group of protesters.

Police said the suspect was arrested at the scene and the gun was recovered.

Protesters have continued to gather outside of the East Precinct to call for systemic change following the death of George Floyd while in Minneapolis police custody on May 25.

As of 11:40 a.m., the GoFundMe had raised $105,589 from 3,084 individual donations.

The GoFundMe was set up as a way to help Gregory pay his medical bills, but organizers said Gregory will get to keep whatever money is left over.
