The Department of Justice charged a member of the extremist Boogaloo Bois with opening fire on a Minnesota police precinct at a George Floyd protest in Minneapolis.
The feds said Ivan Hunter, 26, traveled to the state from Texas in May with the intent to riot during the civil unrest.
Federal officials said the Boogaloo Bois are a far-right anti-government group that believes in an impending American civil war.
Officials said Hunter fired 13 rounds from an AK-47 into the Minneapolis Police Third Precinct on the night of May 28.
Hunter was pulled over for a traffic violation after returning to Texas and was allegedly found with six loaded rifles and a pistol.
Several days later, the feds became aware of Hunter’s online affiliation with Boogaloo Bois member Steven Carrillo, who is charged with the May 20, 2020, murder of a sheriff’s deputy in California.
He faces one count of riot and was arraigned Friday in San Antonio.
