Provo police have confirmed that one person was shot during a protest Monday night near the police department.

The victim, a 60-year-old Provo resident, remained hospitalized Tuesday but was “stable,” according to police. The man was not part of the protest or counter-protest that had been going on, but was just driving in the area, said Provo Police Sgt. Nisha King.

Keep your weapon readily available while driving. You are now in Mogadishu

Antifa getting training with guns or just recruiting new anarchists? Provo police need to put out a manhunt on this man, arrest him and lock him up for a long time. No Probation!

Best advice is to not go anywhere near these protests.

That’s different. Usually it’s the SUV that’s the aggressor.

Whether the shooting was somehow prompted by the man driving through the crowd or whether the man started driving through the crowd after he was shot are questions are questions police were investigating Tuesday.

Because it's perfectly acceptable for hostiles to surround your vehicle and hold you hostage.

The bullet was a high-speed messenger of peace from the party of tolerance.

Strangely worded headline...
It seems to blame the person who was shot.

It should read: “Antifa terrorist shots unarmed American”

Mormons will stand with Black Lives Matter to prove they aren’t racist anymore. Ask Mitt Romney, the Utah Senator.

Leftists on Twitter are claiming the shooters were “standing their ground” and “have a right to kill the driver” since he “attacked them with a deadly weapon.”

I’m saddened to see that in Utah, there are people protesting for #BLM, rather than against the BLM... Bureau of Land Management.

Notice that most of the “BLM protesters” (probably including the shooter) are white.
