    A woman who was near the car that was attacked said two young men among the victims rushed to her, saying they were “bleeding”.
    She explained, according to statements reported by the “ABC” network, that this scene reminds her of the incident of George Floyd, in reference to the black American who spent during the arrest of a white policeman in Minneapolis last May 25, whose death sparked massive protests.
    And she said, “It reminded me of what Floyd said” I can’t breathe, “while they said,” I’m bleeding. I’m bleeding”.

    The police did not formally indicate the identity or descriptions of the victims, nor did they identify the shooters.

    “The Auckland Police Department will not tolerate any form of hate crime. We are committed to serving our community and have set up a team to investigate any allegations of hate crime in Auckland,” the tweet said.
