NYT: Muhiyidin Moye, Black Lives Matter Activist, Is Shot and Killed in New Orleans
Many knew Mr. Moye as the man who jumped through police tape to seize a Confederate battle flag in 2017, but he had been an activist for years.
He was shot in New Orleans. According to The Times: “It remains unclear whether Mr. Moye was intentionally targeted, and the police did not answer questions about whether any suspect had been identified.” Here is the incident where he grabs the flag:
