Police have confirmed that two people fired shots during an altercation in Austin on Saturday night between a motorist and a Black Lives Matter protester, during which the protester was shot and killed.
As reported earlier by Cassandra Fairbanks… Police say that the man who was killed, Garrett Foster, was armed and confronted the vehicle — but was not the other person who fired shots.
“Officials believe one shooter was the driver of a car and the other was in the crowd and may have opened fire on the car as it drove away,” KVUE reports. “Neither shooter was the man who was killed.”
The Austin Police said during a late night press conference that Foster was carrying a rifle and may have approached the vehicle prior to the shooting.
