Per the DailyBeast, shots rang out in Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday as hundreds of members of heavily armed militia groups converged on the city for a protest against police brutality.

Louisville police confirmed three people were injured when a gun discharged as members of the “Not Fucking Around Coalition,” an all-Black militia, gathered in Baxter Park shortly before 1 p.m.

A spokesperson for the police department described the shooting to The Daily Beast as “negligent” and said there were “no charges at this time” and no outstanding suspects.

The victims, all of whom were members of the NFAC, were transferred to the University of Louisville Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

The Blaze reports the demonstrators were accidentally shot by a member of their own militia group.

Shortly before 1 p.m., there was a shooting near Baxter Square Park in Louisville. Reportedly, the firearm of a protester accidentally discharged, and three individuals were injured. All three victims were transported to the University of Louisville Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to Louisville Metro Police Chief Robert Schroeder.

The person who accidentally fired their weapon is a member of the Not F***ing Around Coalition, which is an all-black militia. The bullets struck other militia members of the NFAC. When the shots rang out, people scattered, and others took shelter behind cars, according to WHAS-TV reporter Jessie Cohen.

“All involved are members of the NFAC and there are no outstanding suspects,” Schroeder said. “This is a tragic situation that could have been much worse. I encourage anyone choosing to exercise their Second Amendment rights to do so responsibly.”

The LMPD reportedly confiscated a firearm from the NFAC. A police department spokesperson described the shooting as “negligent,” and said there were “no charges at this time” and there were no outstanding suspects, according to The Daily Beast.

One of the members of the NFAC said, “We had a little accident, it happens.”
