Detroit — Protest organizers who gathered Monday for a march in the city demanded that the police officer , and that the city’s police chief step down, despite Chief James Craig saying the officers thought they were being “fired upon.”

“I am angry,” said Trendel Anderson, 23, who said he was close to being seriously injured when the officer accelerated through the crowd of demonstrators that had surrounded his patrol SUV late Sunday. “I want justice.”

“We will not be intimidated,” said Gabriela Alcazar, an organizer with the coalition of groups that marched Sunday. “We will not accept more life lost to police violence.”

Craig said earlier Monday that the officer, initially escorting the protesters, who drove a police vehicle through a crowd of protesters thought “they were being fired upon” and believed protesters were trying to open the SUV’s doors. Craig said the department was investigating but said the officers had to take “evasive action.”

Protesters called for the department to remove the officer and for Craig to step down as a result of the officer’s alleged actions on Sunday and the chief’s response.

Craig said during the news conference that there were reports Sunday that several protesters had hammers and the back window of the police vehicle was busted out with a skateboard, but demonstrators on Monday said Craig was lying about marchers having hammers as weapons.
