Black Man Reportedly Killed By Former Trump Campaign Volunteer During Protest



A young black protestor lost his life after being shot dead outside a bar in Omaha as unrest across the nation engulfed the Nebraska city.

According to the Daily Beast, 22-year-old James Scurlock was killed by an unidentified bar owner over the weekend.

While the identity of the shooter was not revealed, Omaha World-Herald and KMTV both identified him as Jake Gardner, owner of two bars—The Hive and The Gatsby—on the street where it happened.

According to the reports, Gardner “described himself as a libertarian, a former Marine who was deployed to Iraq and Haiti, and a volunteer for the Trump campaign in 2016.”

Scurlock’s father called for justice as the city braced for another night of chaos.

“Last night I lost a son, my wife lost a son, my kids lost a brother,” the grieving dad, who has the same name, told reporters at the Malcolm X Memorial Foundation Visitors Center,

“His daughter lost a father. All because he decided to protest against racism. There’s a lot of speculation and rumors about how this happened. I don’t really care to be honest. My family wants closure and peace.

“What we want is for this to go to court and get a full prosecution. We want this to go with justice and go peacefully,” he added.
