Texas Man Who Fired AK-47 on a Minneapolis Police Station Arrested


 A Texas man who admits to being affiliated with the far-right anti-government the Boogaloo Bois has been arrested in connection with shots fired at a police station in Minneapolis, Minnesota during protests that erupted after the police incident involving the death of Geoge Floyd.

Viral video shot on May 28 shows a person firing 13 rounds from a semiautomatic assault-style rifle on the Third Precinct police station while suspected looters were inside.

U.S. Attorney Erica MacDonald announced that she charged 26-year-old Ivan Harrison Hunter, of Boerne, Texas, with traveling across state lines to participate in a riot.

 According to a criminal complaint, Hunter traveled from Texas to Minneapolis in late May to join in protests over George Floyd’s death. Floyd, who was Black, died on Memorial Day after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee on his neck for nearly eight minutes. The incident sparked protests against police racism and brutality across the country.

According to the complaint, Hunter claims to be a member of the Boogaloo Bois in social media posts and described what he had done online.
