Pennsylvania State Police reported Tuesday afternoon that there was an “exchange” of gunfire between property owners and Black Lives Matter “activists” during the shooting incident in Bedford County on Monday night and “a shotgun, shotgun shells, a semi-automatic pistol and 9mm casings were all recovered at the scene.”
The “protesters” yesterday acted as though they were all innocent victims.
“The Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) Troop G Bedford station was contacted by a property owner on Monday, August 24 at 11:18 p.m. regarding a group of people in a private business parking lot. Troopers later learned the group was comprised of approximately 30 activists who are traveling on foot and in vehicles from Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Washington, D.C. At approximately 11:35 p.m. at the same location and before state police arrival, the property owners confronted the activists. The confrontation escalated, and gunshots were exchanged between the property owners and the activists,” police said, as quoted by WTAE.
“One of the activists was struck by birdshot from a shotgun. The man was treated and released from the Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center, 1086 Franklin Street Johnstown, Pennsylvania,” police said.
