White Man Pulls AR-15 Out Of Trunk, Hits Black Juneteenth Demonstrator With Car Before Gun Fire Erupts




Witnesses say a man upset by a crowd of Juneteenth demonstrators blocking an intersection in Atlanta, Georgia, grabbed an AR-15 out of the trunk of his car before he appeared to drive his car into a demonstrator Friday evening.



Video shot from multiple angles shows a white man place an AR-15 on his passenger seat before returning to the driver’s side.

He then appears to back up his vehicle before hitting the gas and accelerating his car into a protester.

Seconds later, a nearby protester opens fire on the vehicle in response to the attack.

Another video captured the gunfire from a distance.




Police detained the protester who fired his weapon at the vehicle without further incident. It is unclear if the driver was also detained.

The Atlanta-Journal Constitution reports that the shooting occurred just before 8 p.m., at the intersection of Ponce de Leon Avenue and Boulevard in Midtown, Atlanta police said.

Police say no injuries were reported.
