(AP) — The Minneapolis intersection where George Floyd died has been disrupted by gunfire, just hours before a family-friendly street festival marking the anniversary of his death at the hands of police.

Associated Press video from the scene Tuesday morning shows people running for cover as shots ring out. Police say a man who they believe was injured in the shooting later turned up at a hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. He was in critical condition but was expected to survive.

The intersection is to be transformed later Tuesday into an outdoor festival marking the anniversary of Floyd’s death, with food, children’s activities and a long list of musical performers.
