One Person Shot After Protesters Attempt to Pull Down Statue in Albuquerque (VIDEO)


A demonstration in Albuquerque, New Mexico ended in violence after an individual was shot as protesters attempted to topple a statue. Unconfirmed reports claim the shooter was a member of a militia, but this has been disputed.

Demonstrators assembled outside the Albuquerque Museum on Monday, in what was initially billed as a “prayer gathering” and a “peaceful call” for the removal of a nearby statue of a Spanish conquistador.

But it appears the group decided to take more active measures to ensure the statue’s removal – a trash bag was put over the conquistador’s head, and a metal chain was tied around the its neck.

As the crowd began to pull on the chain, all hell broke loose. In a video of the incident, protesters begin to shout at a man carrying a firearm.
