White Supremacists Shoot Five At #BlackLivesMatter Protest
Five #BlackLivesMatter demonstrators were shot in North Minneapolis Monday night.
Those who were shot sustained non-life-threatening injuries, said police spokesman John Elder in a statement.Miski Noor, a media contact for Black Lives Matter, said “a group of white supremacists showed up at the protest, as they have done most nights.”
One of the three counterdemonstrators wore a mask, said Dana Jaehnert, who had been at the protest site since early evening.
When about a dozen protesters attempted to herd the group away from the area, Noor said, they “opened fire on about six protesters,” hitting five of them. Jaehnert said she heard four gunshots.
