Police have identified an armed protester who was shot and killed by a person who had driven into a crowd at a demonstration against police violence in the Texas capital.
Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said Garrett Foster, 28, was shot and killed Saturday night as demonstrators marched through downtown Austin.
Manley said a vehicle turned onto the block where protesters stood and honked its horn. Police declined to say why the driver was there at that time or whether his intent was nefarious.
Witness Michael Capochiano told the Austin American-Statesman that the car speed through the protesters before it apparently hit an orange barrier and stopped.
In the video that was streamed live on Facebook, a car can be heard honking before several shots ring out and protesters start screaming and scattering. Police can then be seen tending to someone lying in the street.
Video of the shooting below:
Here is another camera angle of the car hurriedly turning right, stopping so as NOT TO HIT ANYONE and then blowing the horn which is when the group started banging on his car, it was obviously not an attempt to hit anyone, nobody was hit and it was just another BLM/Antifa mob trying to bully someone in a car.
Manley also said the driver and several witnesses told police Foster approached the driver’s side window of the vehicle and pointed an assault rifle at the driver.
The driver said they shot Foster and drove off, police said.
Manley said the driver called 911 and reported the incident. That person was taken into custody but later released. The driver’s name wasn’t immediately released.
The mainstream media are making it sound like the driver attacked without justification. Calling him a murderer. Since the actual truth doesn’t fit the mainstream media narrative, it gets buried. Further proof that the mainstream media do not care about actual news or truth. Only what creates panic and furthers their divisiveness in America.
As we previously reported the mainstream media falsely portraited the victim as an innocent man who got shot!
Witnesses say that the victim fired 5 shots with his AK-47 before he was shot dead but that’s not confirmed by the police yet.

Garrett Foster, the Black Lives Matter protester who was fatally shot by a motorist in Austin on Saturday night was caught on camera saying that the “people who hate us” are “too big of p-ssies to actually do anything about it” when asked why he was carrying a rifle.
“They don’t let us march in the streets anymore, so I got to practice some of our rights,” he responded.
The interview then asked if he felt like he would need to use it.
“Nah,” he responded. “I mean, if I use it against the cops I’m dead. I think all the people that hate us and want to say shit to us are too big of p-ssies to stop and actually do anything about it.”
In the interview, he confirmed that he was carrying the famous communist weapon AK-47!

The BLM uses the Black name as though it includes every Black in the world. And better than half of the rioters, as seen in every demonstration, are college-age white kids trying to be relevant.
