National Guardsmen Injured, Drive By Shooting

By Joe1of2

Just hours after Maxine Waters encouraged extremist group Black Lives Matter to be more confrontational a light colored SUV pulled up to a National Guard vehicle in Minneapolis, a man jumped out of the SUV and fired on the Guardsmen. Two soldiers were injured, but not seriously. Police have made an arrest of the alleged shooter, Anthony Thomas age 28. Police located the SUV not long after the shooting. Search of his vehicle turned up a Springfield Armory XD-9 9mm semi-automatic pistol, a .22 caliber revolver with the serial number scratched off, and ammo. Thomas had a previous felony conviction so he was restricted from owning a weapon. A juvenile male was also in the vehicle when pulled over. Thomas will make his first court appearance on Tuesday.
