White Man Fires On Protesters With Hunting Bow, Gets Tackled. Car Set On Fire: Report





A rogue vigilante in downtown Salt Lake City was seen pointing a bow and arrow at protesters in the streets on Saturday after yelling “All Lives Matter” from his car window, reports The New York Post.

“He got out of his car, yelled ‘that’s it’, and shot into the crowd before being tackled,” Twitter user @Gingersonfire wrote, posting a video of the incident.

“He was yelling and me, and then aimed his bow at a black man standing behind me. The black man saw it coming, charged, and tackled him.”



The driver later identified himself on a local television news interview as Brandon McCormick.

Video from the scene shows protesters crouching behind cars near McCormick as he swings the weapon around, before a group of protesters tackled him.

The crowd then flipped McCormick’s car, and according to TMZ, set it on fire.

Police took McCormick into custody, KSL.com reported.

McCormick, who suffered a cut above his eye, later claimed that protesters set upon him after he shouted from inside his car.

“First I got beat up when I yelled, ‘All Lives Matter,’ then I pulled out weapons, then I got beat up some more, then cops grabbed me and my car got totaled,” he said.

McCormick claimed two black men “beat me through my open window” before he got out with the weapon.




“I’m a changed civilian, I’ve changed my life, I back up the law enforcement,” he said, adding, “I know some cops are bad.”

When a reporter urged him to see a doctor for his cut, McCormick said, “I can’t afford to, I’m on unemployment.”
