Black Lives Matter activist shot, killed in New Orleans
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A Black Lives Matter activist has been fatally shot in New Orleans.
Police said Wednesday that 32-year-old Muhiydin Moye was shot in the thigh about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday and died in a hospital. The circumstances of the shooting were not immediately clear.
A police report says an officer answering a call about a gunshot found him on the ground, asking for help near the Treme neighborhood. The report says a bloody trail to the body circled two blocks, and a bloody bicycle lay across the street.
Moye's family tells South Carolina news outlets he was Black Lives Matter organizer Muhiyidin d'Baha, whose legal name was Muhiyidin Elamin Moye.
Last February, Moye leaped a police barricade in Charleston, South Carolina, and tried to take a protester's Confederate battle flag.
