It was only a matter of time before something like this would happen. Really sad to think exorcising your 1st amendment right can lead to getting shot at. So much division these days amongst race when the real enemy on the horizon is ISIS! Big media and political pundits have been ratcheting up hateful rhetoric and nobody is winning.
#MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minneapolis police were searching Tuesday for three white male suspects suspected of #shooting at five Black Lives Matter demonstrators, while the family of a black man who was fatally shot by a city police officer called for the dayslong protests outside of a police precinct to end.
No one was seriously injured in the shooting that happened about 10:40 p.m. Monday. It wasn’t immediately clear who was behind the attack, which took place about a block from the police department’s 4th Precinct, where protesters have been demonstrating since the shooting of 24-year-old Jamar Clark on Nov. 15.
Henry Habu, who said he has been working security for protesters, said he and others approached four people who were standing under a “Justice4Jamar” sign to ask what they were doing there. He described all four — three men and one woman — as white, with three wearing masks that left their eyes exposed. “We’re here for Jamar,” one said, according to Habu.
Habu said they tried to escort the four from the scene and they took off running north. Habu said he did not see the shooting that followed, but heard it.
Oluchi Omeoga witnessed the shooting and said a handful of protesters followed three men wearing masks to a street corner, where the men pulled out weapons and gunshots rang out.
