MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) A 27-year-old man in San Antonio, Texas, pleaded guilty on Thursday to a charge of aggravated rioting for firing more than a dozen rounds in the building of the Minneapolis Police Third Precinct during the riots following George Floyd’s death.
Ivan Hunter says he came to Minneapolis in May 2020 to be part of the riots after Floyd was killed by an officer on Memorial Day.
Hunter, who said he was a member of the violent, anti-government group called Boogaloo Bois, is seen on surveillance video firing 13 rounds from an AK-47-style rifle into the area on the night of May 28th. later collected on the spot by investigators. Police had already evacuated the building, but there were looters inside by then.
Legal documents showed Hunter returning to Texas and posting about his activities in Minneapolis on social media. Less than a week after he fired the device, police in Austin, Texas, pulled a vehicle in which Hunter was a passenger in. He was wearing an loaded AK-47-style magazine clip on his vest, and several assault rifles and handguns were clearly seen inside the car.
Investigators later linked Hunter to Boogaloo Bois member Steven Carrillo, who is accused of murdering a federal service officer in California.
Ex-officer Derek Chauvin was convicted of murdering Floyd last spring.
