(ThePatriotSource.com)- Far-left extremists have seen yet another person shot and killed during a riot. This time, the shooting occurred during a Black Lives Matter riot in Texas on Saturday night. Local police officers confirmed the tragic shooting, and incredible footage shared on social media shows the moment it happened.
As more than one hundred protesters marched through the streets chanting “Fists up! Fight back,” a gunshot can be heard ringing out among the crowd.
Austin police – a department the rioters likely want to be defunded – confirmed that they responded to a shooting that took place at Congress and 4th Street. The incident took place shortly after 10 p.m. and police officers quickly began homicide investigations. However, officers refrained from immediately linking the events seen in the live stream footage above with the shooting.
That’s pretty standard as police comments go, particularly during the initial investigations.
“APD is working a shooting at Congress and 4th St. Media: please avoid calling the Real Time Crime Center at this time as the line needs to stay open,” the department announced on Twitter.

According to early reports, the suspect was understood to have been carrying a rifle in and around the protest and shot somebody inside a card. Police said that the suspect had been detained.
Speaking to local media, a witness said that the vehicle came into contact with the protesters just before the shooting occurred. While investigations are ongoing, recent events in other states have seen protesters angrily attacking vehicles that attempt to get past them on the roads.
“As we’re walking down passing Fourth Street, a blue car just come swerving out into the middle of the street almost runs over a bunch of protesters and everybody around starts like smacking the car trying to get him to slow down,” the witness claimed.
Let’s see how this one pans out.
