When will the media call these ‘demonstrations’ what they are?

Black Lives Matters, the far-left Marxist organization that has raked in hundreds of millions of dollars over the last seven years and used it to foment rage, riots, and death, just increased the fatalities associated with the ‘movement.’

On Saturday night during a ‘demonstration’ in Austin, Texas, on BLM ‘protestor’ apparently opened fire on a vehicle, causing the driver to return fire and kill the attacker.

Breitbart News reported:

Dramatic footage uploaded to a Facebook Live feed showed the moment when shots split the night air in the Texas capital as some 100 protesters marched and chanted, “Fists up! Fight back!”

Austin police confirmed on their Twitter feed reports of a shooting just after 10 p.m. in the area of Congress and 4th Street in downtown. Soon after they said they were starting homicide investigations.

Police did not immediately link the shooting with the events in the live stream.

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. An update will be sent when scene is secured and safe to do so. Thank you. WC-5

According to multiple witnesses, BLM ‘protestors’ illegally surrounded the vehicle, and member Garrett Foster aimed his gun at the motorist in the car.

BREAKING: APD Chief Brian Manley says Garrett Foster had multiple gunshot wounds. The person who shot Foster called 911 to report that someone had pointed a gun at his vehicle and that he fired. Manley says Foster had AK-47 and that it appears as though Foster pointed gun at car.

The first person, according to chief, to have fired a weapon appears to have been driver in the car. Again, he says those shots came after the driver said Foster pointed weapon at him.

There was also another armed person, who fired at the car.

Detective are reviewing “precise actions” of those involved. Investigators are coordinating with Travis prosecutors, and two people have been released “pending further investigation.” A 2nd person who fired at car also has been released pending investigation, Manley says.

Of course, the media seems to be exalting Foster, while ignoring the part he played in his own violent death.

KXAN reported:

Foster’s mother also confirmed that he died during an interview with Good Morning America. In that interview, Foster’s mother said that he and his fiancée had been demonstrating in protests almost every day for the past 50 days.

Austin Police update Sunday evening

In a briefing for the press Sunday evening, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley confirmed Foster’s death as a result of the shooting and laid out some details on what police know so far.

Manley said that APD officers were out monitoring downtown protests when they heard two separate volleys of gunfire in the area, just as 911 received multiple calls from that area.

Officers working the protest moved to the area of the gunfire, Manley said, and found Foster with multiple gunshot wounds. Austin Police and Austin Fire attempted to resuscitate Foster, then Austin-Travis County EMS transported him to Dell Seton Medical Center.

Manley said that Foster succumbed to his wounds and was pronounced deceased at the hospital at 10:25 p.m.

One of the people who called 9-1-1, Manley said, was a person who said that someone had approached the driver side window of the vehicle they were driving and pointed a rifle at them. The caller said they had driven away from the scene and was instructed to pull over. This caller was brought to APD’s homicide office to be interviewed, Manley said, and this person’s handgun and vehicle were secured by APD as evidence.

Manley noted that witnesses on the scene described to officers several different versions of the incident.

He summarized that witnesses told APD a vehicle began honking its horn as it turned south onto Congress Avenue from 4th Street. He said the vehicle stopped “as there were a large number of people in the roadway.”

Manley said that Foster, who was holding an AK47-type assault rifle, approached the driver side window of this car as others in the crowd began striking the car.

“Gunshots were fired from inside the vehicle at Mr. Foster,” Manley said. “During the initial investigation of this incident, it appears Mr. Foster may have pointed his rifle at the driver of this vehicle prior to being shot.”

Another individual told APD that after that first volley of gunfire and seeing the car drive away from the crowd, they drew their concealed handgun and fired multiple shots at the car. Manley said this individual was also brought to the homicide office to be interviewed, and this individual’s handgun, along with Foster’s rifle, were also taken into evidence.

Both the driver of the vehicle who fired at Foster and the individual who fired at the car later on have been released “pending further investigation,” Manley said. He also noted that both people have concealed handgun licenses.

The mayor went on to blame the shooting on guns, not the leftist fascism.
