A bar owner shot a protester on Saturday night after the mob came for him and his business. The incident was caught on video. You can hear the person taking the video warning the people to stay back, shouting “This n**** got a gun!… It’s not worth it, n****!” as the mob encroached on a backpedaling Jake Gardner, owner of The Hive bar in Omaha, Nebraska. The mob starts to tackle Gardner to the ground, and shots start to ring out.
22-year-old James Scurlock was shot and killed.
Gardner will not be facing charges, as the Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine announced on Monday, proclaiming Gardner’s actions to be in self defense.
