Five Black Lives Matter protesters were shot by alleged white supremacists in North Minneapolis last night (Nov. 23). The terrorists (let’s call them what they are) reportedly opened fire after being asked to leave. 

Reports the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Five protesters were shot late Monday night near the Black Lives Matter encampment at the Fourth Precinct police station in north Minneapolis, according to police.

Those who were shot sustained non-life-threatening injuries, said police spokesman John Elder in a statement.

Miski Noor, a media contact for Black Lives Matter, said “a group of white supremacists showed up at the protest, as they have done most nights.”

One of the three counterdemonstrators wore a mask, said Dana Jaehnert, who had been at the protest site since early evening.

When about a dozen protesters attempted to herd the group away from the area, Noor said, they “opened fire on about six protesters,” hitting five of them. Jaehnert said she heard four gunshots.

The shootings occurred at 10:45 p.m. on Morgan Avenue N. about a block north of the precinct station.

The Black Lives Matter demonstrators were on the scene to protest the shooting death of Jamar Clark by Minneapolis police on Nov. 15.

Fortunately, all five victims suffered non-life threatening injuries.

We trust Minneapolis police are doing everything they can to find the suspects and have them charged with attempted murder, right?

The authorities are searching for three white male suspects.
