they don’t really say who died or what happend. Poor writing. Even the journalists are dim brained guppies. I assume that it was a thug scaring an innocent driver so the driver shot him. Then they arrested the driver. This is Texas so castle doctrine applies. Driver is innocent but they arrested him. No doubt some gibbon faced DA will try to hang em.
Ah wait, found more on it. Looks like another charlottesville. No doubt the peaceful car driver will get double life sentences for defending himself from the mob. the MAZI ran at the car with a rifle. Hey isn’t that charlotte guy who also was just defending himself rotting in jail under TWO life sentences after his lawyer failed to show pictures that he couldn’t have killed heather heyer? Yehp. Ah Yep.
The more interesting part of the story is that the other protesters cannot grasp that the threatening gun toting thug did anything wrong. He just “got shot”
According to a witness, the incident began when the driver on Fourth Street honked, turned right and sped down Congress, driving through the crowd. He appeared to hit an orange barrier in the road and came to a stop, said Michael Capochiano, who attended the protest.
“There were people around the car, yelling, and people sounding like they were frightened,” Capochiano said.
A protester with a rifle approached the car, and the driver pointed his gun outside the window, Capochiano said. The driver fired several shots, then sped away, he said.
The man with the rifle “dropped to the ground when he got shot,” Capochiano said.
Austin police confirmed that an adult male was shot and killed near an intersection in the city’s downtown around 9:52 p.m. during the protest Saturday night.
Social media footage shows demonstrators marching through the streets shouting ‘black lives’ and waving banners reading ‘BLM’ before several shots are fired.
Screams are heard and the video loses focus as protesters run for cover from the scene.
Senior Police Officer Katerina Ratcliff said in a late night press conference that cops were on the scene monitoring the protest when shots rang out in the area.
Initial reports indicate the victim was carrying a rifle and approached the suspect’s vehicle, who then opened fire fatally shooting the man.
Medics on the scene performed CPR on the man and he was taken to hospital in a critical condition, where he was pronounced dead soon after.
Austin police said the suspect had been detained and that no other injuries were reported.
