Officer Shot In Pennsylvania, Man Wanted For Questioning In Connection To Shooting

An officer was shot in Mckeesport, Pennsylvania around 4:00 PM this afternoon sparking a massive police manhunt for an individual suspected to have been involved in the shooting. ATF, SWAT, state and county police, as well as numerous local police departments are on scene and contributing resources, according to Dillon Carr a reporter with TRIB Live.

Koby Lee Francis, the suspected shooter according to Allegheny County spokeswoman Amie Downs, is a 22-year-old black male described as roughly 6’2″ with brown eyes and short black hair.

Francis was taken into custody earlier in the day and a search of his person revealed a concealed handgun. Unfortunately, Francis had a second firearm in his possession which was not found during the search. When he got out of the vehicle outside of the police station, he discharged this weapon striking the officer at least two times.

The officer, who has not been identified, was transported to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital and is in stable condition.

Rioting Newspaper Employee Arrested And Held On $1,000,000 Bail In Lancaster While Paper Tries To Hide It

Matthew Modderman, 31, Was Arrested For Arson, Institutional Vandalism, Riot, Disorderly Conduct, And Other Charges…He Is An Employee Of LNP Media Group, The Local Lancaster Newspaper

Matthew Modderman is an employee with the LNP Media Group which owns and operates LNP Online, Lancaster’s premier source for local news. His name is listed among several others who were charged for their involvement in the incredibly violent riot that took place as a result of the lawful killing of a black man who charged at police officers with a knife. Each of those individuals is also being held on a $1,000,000 bond despite protests from Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman. Pennsylvania’s judiciary is wisely not playing around.

Modderman’s Mugshot

Modderman was charged with the following:

Arson (F1), Institutional Vandalism (F3), Riot (F3), Failure to Disperse (M2), Obstructing Highways and Other Public Passages (M3), Disorderly Conduct (M3) and Defiant Trespass (M3). (CrimeWatch PA)

People present that evening were given countless warnings by the organizing rioters who made clear that the night’s agenda did not include a peaceful protest. Over a megaphone, they announced without any confusion, that violence was the intended product of the evening’s event. Modderman apparently chose to stay and participate.

Nationalist Review called LNP Media Group to request a comment on the arrest of their employee. They did not sound pleased. “We’re not making any comments at this time,” and no one was available to speak further on that matter.

What we can say is that they acted quickly: all pages mentioning Modderman’s name have been purged. But that’s what web caches and archive sites are for, so here’s two links that verify he did work for them as a client services representative. (Archive 1, Archive 2)

Videos: Pennsylvania Riots Night One – All The Violent Clips Black Lives Matter Doesn’t Want You To See In One Place

Lancaster, Pennsylvania Turned Violent After Rioters Intentionally Circulated Fake News About An Autistic Child Being Killed By Police

If you want to skip ahead to the violence, we understand — you’ll find plenty of clips below just scroll to the heading that catches your attention.

Protests in Pennsylvania turned violent as Nationalist Review predicted they would following the intentional dissemination of misinformation about the shooting of an armed black man who charged at police with a knife. Black Lives Matter rioters, seeking to provoke the destruction of another American city, spread the word that fully grown man police lawfully killed was actually a 14-year-old child who was unarmed and diagnosed with autism.

Needless to say, this man did not have autism, nor was he a child. But he did have a violent criminal history which included at least one other stabbing incident during which he plunged a knife into four other people including one minor. But Black Lives Matter has never been an organization to let the facts get in the way of their looting and arson. As the clock ticked onward last night, that was exactly what Lancaster experienced.

By the end of the night, the few honest journalists present to document the terrorism had been harassed and intimidated by street thugs, the police station had been attacked, numerous shops looted, and fires lit.

Rioters Began Swarming The Streets After Police Shot A Violent Criminal Who Charged At Them With A Knife:

Then The Rumor Mill Began To Swirl: Rioters Intentionally Spread A False Narrative About The Deceased Being A 14-Year-Old Autistic Child

Again, this wan’t a child. It was a 27-year-old man with a history of psychopathic stabbing sprees. Why he was out of jail, we’re not quite certain. What we do know is that he attacked four people with a knife previously and police had to use a taser on him during that prior encounter.

Then The Riot Began: Riot Leaders On Scene Demanded That Parents With Children Leave The Area, The Implication Being That Things Would Soon Become Violent

Local Reporters Refused To Correct Rioters Who Again, And Again, Repeated The Same Fake Rumor About A Child Being Shot

By this point, all the facts had come to light. Body camera footage had been released, the DA had commented on the situation, the deceased subject’s criminal history had been discovered…but local mainstream affiliates who were on the ground continued to let rioters use their platform to spread a malicious narrative about a child being slain.

Video: Black Lives Matter Leader Who Called For Riots In Pennsylvania Sends Goons To Intimidate Journalists

Rioters Harass And Threaten Independent Journalists In Pennsylvania

The riots in Lancaster, Pennsylvania have grown increasingly tense throughout the night. Earlier this evening, Nationalist Review reported that two Black Lives Matter leaders demanded that parents with children present go home indicating that the gathering was going to be turning intentionally violent. Now, she’s been caught on tape leading a mob to harass and chase off an independent journalist. We’ve provided a clear picture of her face and a video of the incident below.

“If you don’t want no f***ing Trouble, get the f***ing camera out of here…”

A black male patrolling the area issued demands to all riot attendees. “Keep it on lock and turn that s*** off,”he said, using his preferred street slang about keeping the situation under the control of the rioters by limiting the amount of evidence they document about their misdeeds. Only approved journalists are allowed to film without being harassed. One of them can be seen snapping pictures in the video below.

While on his censorship patrol, he passes an independent journalist who is filming the mob. “You live bro?” the riot leader asks.


The Black Lives Matter enforcer turns his megaphone back on so that everyone in the crowd can hear. “Turn that s*** off. They’re monitoring your phone, turn that s*** off.” The excuse is weak, plenty of people can be seen on their phones in the background. It’s not about monitoring cellphone communications, the rioters want to avoid having their crimes recorded.

“I’m documenting,” the journalist responds. “Mind your business, man. I’m not filming you.”

“It doesn’t matter. We don’t want them knowing our f***ing movements and monitoring your f***ing Facebook, bro.”

“I don’t want any trouble, man.”

At this point the riot enforcer grows irate: “if you don’t want no f***ing trouble get the f***ing camera out of here.”

The more aggressive change in tone startles the filmmaker. “Will somebody help me please? This guy is coming after me.” No one moves to intervene as the man grows increasingly desperate for support. Eventually, another Black Lives Matter organizer calls the dog off, but the respite is temporary.

Woman Who Seems To Be Leader Of The Riot

Soon, a woman who seems to be the highest ranking rioter, approached. Earlier that evening she had ordered all parents with children and underage attendees to vacate the area. The implication was clear: things were going to grow violent and that violence was the premeditated plan.

She and her cronies—about 6 or 7 men—surround the man and continue to chase him from the area. Then she demands that he “take a walk” with her and shut off his camera. It’s unclear what happened next. The journalist, probably fearing for his safety, complied.

Video: “This Is Not A Protest” Rioters Warn Parents With Children To Leave Before Violence Begins

Earlier this evening, a domestic disturbance call in Lancaster, Pennsylvania developed into an officer involved shooting after the subject reportedly charged police officers while wielding a knife. Black Lives Matter was quickly at the scene of the shooting and promptly began to rotate their rumor mill.

While the deceased is reportedly a 28-year-old man, the street terrorists have spun up a tale about how he was actually a 14-year-old unarmed autistic child. Soon, rioters were flooding to the streets and they brought with them an ominous message foreshadowing potential violence later this evening. So, if violence does develop—you heard it here first—it was both premeditated and based on a lie.

“This is not no protest”

Rioters Gleefully Lied About The Shooting In Order To Drive People Into The Streets:

Police and local affiliates are clear: the deceased subject was armed and dangerous. That hasn’t stopped rioters from spreading their false narrative.

“If our children are here—I’m a mom, my children are at home—take your children home,” one woman yells over the megaphone.

A man joins her in this message, “Take your kids home!”

“This is not the protest where they will learn anything.”

“This is not no protests.”

“If you’re under the age of 18 yourself, get the Hell out of here. Right now. This is not for you. This isn’t a show.”

The message is clear: this is, by the accounts of actual participants, not going to be a peaceful protest.

Nationalist Review will be tracking events an Lancaster and will provide updates should anything develop.
