BREAKING: Austin Police Confirm ‘Protester’ Shot and Killed By Motorist Was Carrying Rifle, May Have Approached Vehicle

By Cassandra Fairbanks, Gateway Pundit, July 26, 2020:

The Austin Police said during a late night press conference that the man who was shot by a motorist during the Black Lives Matter “protest” was carrying a rifle and may have approached the vehicle.

“One adult male victim was located with a gunshot wound,” the press officer said, before confirming he passed away at the hospital shortly after. “Initial reports indicate that the victim may have been carrying a rifle and approached the suspect vehicle. Suspect was in the vehicle and shot at the victim. Suspect was detained and is cooperating with officers.”

The officer confirmed that there were no other injuries reported and there is no threat to the public.

The incident was captured on Facebook Live. It appeared that the crowd was blocking traffic and possibly surrounding the car prior to the shooting.

“Someone got out of their car and shot one of the protesters,” the livestreamer said.

The man who was livestreaming, Hiram Gilberto, wrote in a follow up Facebook post that “I was no more ten feet from the shooter and running towards his car. It was TOO CLOSE. Currently on my way to give a witness statement to APD. KEEP THOSE AFFECTED IN YOUR THOUGHTS.”

Here’s the shooting, unfortunately I didn’t catch the actual shooting, but hopefully they can use it to identify some of these idiots! Sorry there isn’t sound as I had to record this with my phone off the computer, but when you see the big dude with the blackshirt walk behind the car he banged on the trunk, and that was my clue to get out. As soon as shots were fired I called 911 and before the dispatcher could say “you need police fire or EMS” I just said shots fired shots fired 4th and Congress” she then got as much info as she could, cops started screaming down the street and all hell broke loose. 10 minutes before this shooting I called and reported one of them (the protestors) had an assault rifle.As I was walking away from the earlier videos, I saw these officers standing there getting spit at and yelled at. I went to one of the officers that was away from the crowd, and told him that they were appreciated and not to listen to the nonsense that there were a lot of people that supported them, it’s just the small group that doesn’t that is the loudest! You could see the defeat in his face, he appreciated what I said, but you could just tell, these guys and gals are hurting! Austin was an amazing place, where even though we may disagree, we all respected each other, it was a safe, fun place to be. But the a$$ Austin Mayor Steve Adler has ruined this city. Crime is way up, it’s not safe anymore! for the first time in my life, i am ashamed to call myself an Austinite!
