AUSTIN, Texas — One person is dead and a suspect has been detained after a shooting at a Black Lives Matter protest in Downtown Austin on Saturday night.

The incident happened around 9:52 p.m. near East Sixth Street and Congress Avenue, according to Austin-Travis County EMS. One victim was taken to a local trauma center with critical, life-threatening injuries, ATCEMS said.

Police later said the incident was a homicide.

In an update early Sunday morning, police said initial reports indicate the victim, an adult man, was carrying a rifle when he approached the suspect's vehicle. The suspect then shot out of their car at the victim, police said.

The suspect was detained and is cooperating with officers.

Quote
A man was killed in downtown Austin Saturday night in the midst of a protest against police violence, and police said they have taken the shooter into custody.

The shooting happened about 9:50 p.m. at Fourth Street and Congress Avenue, EMS officials said. Austin police said the male victim was carrying a weapon when he approached a vehicle. The person in the vehicle then shot the man.

According to a witness, the incident began when the driver on Fourth Street honked, turned right and sped down Congress, driving through the crowd. He appeared to hit an orange barrier in the road and came to a stop, said Michael Capochiano, who attended the protest.

“There were people around the car, yelling, and people sounding like they were frightened,” Capochiano said.

A protester with a rifle approached the car, and the driver pointed his gun outside the window, Capochiano said. The driver fired several shots, then sped away, he said.

I read conflicting stories on this.  One report had the rioter carrying an AK-47 and shooting at the guy in the car, then the guy fired back killing the rioter.  Another report has the rioter threatening the guy in the car and the guy shot the rioter. 

Anyway, stupid to be carrying an AK-47 in a provocative way like that.  I'm surprised this hasn't happened yet.

If the protesters wish to protest, they need to expect people will get hurt.

Why otherwise did the dead guy need to bring a gun along?

Info is kind of sparse, but it sounds like a protester moron either got taken out by another protester or by an ordinary person going about their business.

   I've heard, unverifiable, that the white dude was shot by a Black Woman, so we probably won't hear anything else about this.

An update:

Army sergeant working as ride-hailing driver shot protester Garrett Foster in self-defense, his lawyer says

https://www.statesman.com/news/20200731/army-sergeant-working-as-ride-hailing-driver-shot-protester-garrett-foster-in-self-defense-his-lawyer-says?fbclid=IwAR1m6D8BQ-9Tk4vRinSqA5vurdqo74TX64UQrj5Q_bs_D_LuNKo8w_Lbw2U

Quote
Perry, 33, was driving for a ride-hailing company on July 25 to earn extra money, a statement from the law firm Broden & Mickelsen says. Perry is being represented by Clint Broden.

Austin police have not announced any arrests in relation to the shooting. Broden said he was identifying his client because “there were some false narratives being advanced and we believed it was time all the facts were known.”
...
Perry had dropped off a ride-hailing fare near Congress Avenue the night of the protest and drove toward a “hot spot” to wait for another client or food order. He turned right onto Congress Avenue near Fourth Street, Broden’s statement says.

When Perry turned on to Congress Avenue, he encountered the protest and several people began hitting his vehicle. The statement says Perry did not know a protest was happening that night.

Perry at first thought Foster was a law enforcement official when he approached the vehicle and motioned with an assault rifle for Perry to lower his window, the statement says. Perry realized after rolling down his window that Foster was not a member of law enforcement.

The statement says Foster began to raise his rifle at Perry. Witnesses have told the American-Statesman that Foster had his weapon pointed down.

Perry shot at Foster with a handgun he kept in his vehicle for protection, the statement says.

A third person then shot at the vehicle. Perry left the area and called police, the statement says.

Army Sergeant Identified as Driver in Austin Protest Shooting; Lawyer Says He Shot in Self-Defense

Quote
The fact that the protest was not permitted will be key to Perry’s defense, should he face charges. Protests such as the one that took place on July 25 are not permitted and their routes are not published. Residents and visitors have no reliable way of knowing when or where protests will occur or how large the crowds may be. The protest on July 25 was taking place just before 10 p.m. on a Saturday night in the entertainment district of downtown Austin. Anyone encountering a crowd has little means of identifying who is in the crowd or what their intentions may be. Protests have repeatedly become violent without warning, in Austin and many other cities, in the past two months.
...
Video recorded by the dashcam of another car just prior to the shooting indicates the crowd stopped and surrounded his car, refusing to allow him to pass. The crowd had no legal right to stop him from driving on a public street. He honked the car horn, which speaks to his intent. Had he intended to harm anyone, he was driving a car that he could have used to strike members of the crowd.

The crowd reportedly began striking his car, and protester Garrett Foster approached with his AK-47 and motioned Perry to roll down his window with his rifle — which may mean he pointed the rifle at Perry in making that motion. Openly carrying a rifle is legal in Texas, but Foster had no legal right to demand Perry take any action.

Firearms training, including that which Foster would have received during his brief military career, instructs carriers to never point their weapon at another individual unless intending to shoot.

@corbe

Not true.She will end up being on Oprah,and announce she is suing the government for stress. Orca will tell her how strong she is and that she is a hero to little black girls everywhere,and she might even end up being elected to national office.

After all,Black Lives Matter,not white lives.

@corbe

Someone correct me if I am wrong,but aren't all purposeful deaths homicides by definition?

@IsailedawayfromFR

It's fashionable to dress up as SWAT officers these days.

That's the problem with open carry in public. Sooner or later,somebody is going to try to force you to use it. Better to carry a concealed handgun for self-defense in a city than a rifle because you are less likely to need to use it.

U.S. Army sergeant who shot Austin protester Garrett Foster posted tweets about retaliating against demonstrators

Daniel Perry has come forward as the shooter of Garrett Foster, a 28-year-old armed demonstrator who was killed while protesting police brutality in Austin last Saturday.

BY JOLIE MCCULLOUGH AND MEENA VENKATARAMANAN JULY 31, 2020

The man suspected of killing anti-police brutality protester Garrett Foster in Austin on Saturday has been identified as an active U.S. Army sergeant named Daniel Perry.

Perry’s lawyer also confirmed to The Texas Tribune late Friday that his client wrote tweets that have strengthened activists’ concerns about the shooter’s frame of mind, the validity of his self-defense claim and Austin police officials’ handling of the investigation.

People across the state and the country have taken to the streets for months to protest the in-custody death of George Floyd. Floyd, a Black man, died after a white Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck past the point when he lost consciousness in late May.

In June, when President Donald Trump tweeted that “protesters, anarchists, agitators, looters or lowlifes” protesting in Oklahoma would face “a much different scene” than protesters in New York or Minneapolis, Perry responded from a now-deleted account with the username “@knivesfromtrigu.” The tweet read, “Send them to Texas we will show them why we say don’t mess with Texas.” That account was identified as being connected to Perry by Tribune of the People, which bills itself as a “revolutionary news service.”

One cannot afford to stay, either.

This is not about money.  It is about safety and freedom.

Better read the tealeaves.

Places like San Francisco or Seattle do not care about 'honest' citizens.

Those kind of people get trampled on by those in power, so can people really 'afford' to stick around?
