A protest marcher was shot in Bedford County Monday night as a group of activists was walking from Milwaukee to Washington, D.C. to bring awareness to racial injustice.

The person shot suffered a non-life-threatening injury and was taken to Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center in Johnstown around 12:15 a.m. Tuesday, according to Cambria County emergency officials.

Milwaukee activist Frank Nitty, an organizer of the march, was leading the procession and live-streamed the incident on Facebook.

The shooting occurred as the marchers were passing through Schellsburg in Bedford County. In the live-streamed video, at least two gunshots can be heard. One of the marchers is seen bleeding from his face and he said he was shot before other marchers rush him to the hospital.

Pennsylvania State Police are investigating. It was unclear if there were any arrests.
