Earlier this evening, Nationalist Review reported that an individual was shot and killed while attending a protest in Austin, Texas. The shooting incident was initially ruled a homicide but new facts presented during a press evening just now indicate that the shooter may have acted in self defense when an armed individual approached his vehicle when the driver was attempting to pass peaceably through an intersection.
