Hispanic driver shoots rioter at Seattle protest:
Early Sunday evening around 8:30 PM a Hispanic male drove his car through a crowded protest sparking outrage from the participants on the streets who swarmed his vehicle and began punching the car and obstructing the occupant’s path.
When one rioter began directly punching the man behind the wheel, the driver drew his weapon and fired at his assailant. There are conflicting reports as to whether the individual was shot with a gun or a taser, with medics at the scene stating he had merely been hit with the taser while photojournalist Alex Garland claims the ‘victim’ was shot with a bullet.
The man, who has not yet been identified, then fled the scene wearing a black hoodie appearing to display the logo for the Iron Workers Union. Shortly thereafter he was apprehended by police. His name has yet to be released.
A white male? Wrong.
Despite reports from Twitter users which have been published by other media outlets, the individual is not a “middle-aged white male” as some have suggested. Nationalist Review has obtained a clear picture of the driver:
Following the incident, the man who was shot gave a brief account of his actions as he was being walked to the medics.
Story unclear at the moment but young man shot on 11th and Pine. Daniel, 26, wanted to tell his story. With the help of other medics I got a tourniquet on his arm. Street medics were on the spot with gauze and pressure. He walked off the scene. pic.twitter.com/g9Ism58YkF— Alex Garland (@AGarlandPhoto) June 8, 2020
