Far-left activist shot, killed at Antifa punk music concert in Minneapolis

Authorities believe at least one person was being targeted by a shooter.

On Friday night, a far-left activist was killed during an Antifa punk music concert.

August Golden, 35, was identified as the victim by a bandmate. He was killed in the shooting on Aug 11 at the punk venue Nudieland, when gunmen fired into a crowd of people in the backyard of the house on 16th Avenue S. in south Minneapolis killing one and injuring six others.

According to The Post Millennial’s Editor-at-Large Andy Ngo, Golden supported the terrorist-linked group Earth First and the Atlanta terrorist movement "Stop Cop City."

Stop Cop City has seen a large group of far-left activists descend on the future site of the Atlanta Public Safety Traning Facility, with at least 28 people being charged with domestic terrorism after setting fire to construction equipment and attacking police officers.

Earth First describes itself as a group providing "a voice from the front lines of eco-resistance," adding that there’s "No Compromise in Defense of Mother Earth." The group uses violent tactics to halt logging and the creation of new gas pipelines.

Two male suspects were seen running away from the shooting and are still at large, according to police.

On Saturday, Minneapolis Police Chief Brian O'Hara said in a news conference that authorities believe at least one person was being targeted by a shooter.

Investigators found 10 shell casings at the scene.

According to police, two people had self-transported to area hospitals with gunshot wounds. Five others, an adult male with a potentially life-threatening gunshot wound, three adult males with nonlife-threatening gunshot wounds, and an adult female with a nonlife-threatening gunshot wound, were taken to the hospital.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms is assisting with the investigation.
