Yesterday, video spread widely on social media of a black protester shot dead in Omaha, Nebraska.
Local media are reporting the shooter was a local bar owner, who was possibly defending his establishment from property damage when he got into an altercation with protesters.
It’s unclear whether he’s been charged. Local media report that the investigation is ongoing. The victim was a 22-year-old man named James Scurlock.
“Last night, I lost a son,” his father told local media. “My kids lost a brother. His daughter lost a father. … We want them to go to court.”
This is the latest of a handful of deaths related to the protests.
