Stunned protesters surround a car that has driven into their ranks. A man is lying on the ground nearby. Another man exits the driver's side of the vehicle brandishing a gun. The protesters back away from him and he runs off and melts into the crowd as medics rush to help the wounded man.
The dramatic scenes of the shooting on the streets of Seattle were captured by Reuters photographer Lindsey Wasson during protests against police brutality and racism that have rocked the city - and many other places across the United States - in recent days.
For Wasson, the protests in her home town have been of a size and intensity unlike others she has seen before.
"It has been very odd to see something like this where you grew up. What feels different this time is the scale and how sustained it's been. I've never seen it happen for this long, this extended energy and purpose," she said.
The majority of her coverage of the protests over the last week has been of more peaceful moments, said Wasson.
At those times, she has focused on how she will tell the story. But it also important for a photographer on the ground to read the situation and be aware of exit routes if needed, she added.
In this case, she had an unusual high vantage point that gave her the perfect view. Taking photos through glass is never ideal, because of the challenges related to reflection. How the images turn out depends on the light and how close you can get, said Wasson.
"It's not ideal but at that particular moment it was the only thing available to me."
