VIDEO: BLM/ANTIFA RIOTER SHOOTS DRIVER TRYING TO PASS PROTEST
Video out of Utah shows a Black Lives Matter radical firing a pistol into an SUV attempting to get through the mob blocking the road.
The footage from an intersection in Provo shows the crowd of protesters swarming a white SUV that was trying to drive through the protest before two shots are heard.
The SUV suddenly accelerated, tossing several of the extremists aside as it zoomed across the intersection and sped away.
A slowed-down clip shows a BLM rioter covered in a green balaclava aiming a pistol at the driver from the passenger side and firing a shot into the vehicle.
Lt. Brian Taylor of the Provo Police Department stated that the driver, who is in his 60s, was shot and was taken to the Utah Valley Hospital, underwent surgery and has non-life threatening injuries.
“We are looking for a suspect,” Taylor said Tuesday. “There are a number of videos that show a person on the street approaching this vehicle and discharging a couple of bullets into that car.”
“We don’t know what his intentions were. We don’t know what his involvement with the crowd was,” Taylor added. “We just know that he was there.”
Provo Mayor Michelle Kaufusi made a statement defending the protest, but condemning the shooter, saying, “Criminal acts and violence such as we saw last night in Provo were anything but peaceful and are UNACCEPTABLE.”
The BLM and Antifa mob have been targeting motor vehicles more in recent weeks as the inner cities begin to push back against their violence and lawlessness.
Last week, an eerily similar incident occurred in Alamosa, Colorado, where a deranged leftist lawyer fired several rounds into the passenger side of a black SUV also just trying to pass protesters blocking the street.
And the week before that, BLM rioters were shattering motorists’ windows with crowbars and clubs on a highway in San Jose, California during one of their “demonstrations.”
