Minneapolis, MN — During a protest against police brutality in Minneapolis Monday night, multiple protesters were shot by masked counter protesters. The counter protesters somehow managed to evade police and escape a highly secured area without being caught or even identified. The groups had gathered to demand justice for Jamar Clark, a young man who was recently shot and killed by police while he was in handcuffs.

The protests were even occurring on the same block where the local police station is located, making it even more strange that these attackers were able to get away so easily.
Miski Noor, a media contact for Black Lives Matter told the Star Tribune, “A group of white supremacists showed up at the protest, as they have done most nights,” and that they “opened fire on about 6 protesters.”
The group who attacked the protesters had reportedly approached the area wearing masks and shouting racial slurs. When they were asked to remove their masks they allegedly became violent and fired several shots into the crowd, hitting at least five people. The only description that the police had on the suspects was “Two middle aged WM, 5’10”, bullet proof vests on, 1 red sweatshirt.” Hours later the police have not announced any arrests or any suspects.
Police now say they are searching for three white males suspected in the shooting.

Eddie Sutton, Jamar’s brother, made the following statement after the shootings occurred:
“Thank you to the community for the incredible support you have shown for our family in this difficult time. We appreciate Black Lives Matter for holding it down and keeping the protests peaceful. But in light of tonight’s shootings, the family feels out of imminent concern for the safety of the occupiers, we must get the occupation of the 4th precinct ended and onto the next step.”
Telusar reported that all of the injuries sustained by the protesters are “non-life threatening.”
According to City Pages, two men wearing camouflage with masks over their faces came to the protests last Friday night. Protesters said they felt threatened by the armed men.

Black Lives Matters representatives said in a statement that the recent shootings were an act of “domestic terrorism.”‘
Shooters apparently yelled, "race war and trump 2016" before shooting three #4thPrecinctShutDown demonstrators

Two witnesses later described the events that led up the conflict, saying that the attackers became violent when they were asked to remove their masks.
A race war is exactly what the corrupt establishment has been driving towards for some time now. Both ‘sides’ of the mainstream media have been blaming the color of people’s skin for thier actions and it seems that the effects of such irresponsible ‘race baiting’ are manifesting into inevitable violence.
