A man in a crowd of protesters in Aurora, Colorado, allegedly opened fire on a Jeep as it was driven through the group on I-225 over the weekend.

KKTV reports the incident occurred some time after 6:30 p.m. Saturday. The Aurora Police Department said, “While the Jeep was being driven through the crowd, multiple shots were fired by a protester.”

Two people were struck by bullets and both are expected to survive.

The Aurora PD released photos of a person of interest on social media following the shooting and on Monday 23-year-old Samuel Young was arrested for allegedly opening fire on the Jeep.

The Aurora PD announced Young faces four counts of Attempted Homicide and the department is still examining actions of the Jeep driver to ascertain if that person will face charges well.

They are asking eye witnesses to contact Aurora PD Sgt. Jeff Longnecker of the Major Crimes/Homicide Unit for an interview.
