A passenger in the car also was wounded in the Monday night shooting, said the spokesman, Sgt. Timothy Edwards, in a telephone interview. “When you see a vehicle approaching at high speed it is seen as a threat, so the Marines opened fire,” Edwards said. “The driver was killed. … A second man was injured and turned over to the Haitian police.” Marines said they shot and killed a gunman who fired at them during a demonstration Sunday in which seven people died, including a foreign journalist, and more than 30 were wounded.
