A far-right extremist has been charged for alleged violent participation during a Minneapolis protest just days after George Floyd’s death in police custody.

Ivan Hunter of Boerne, Texas, is charged with one count of interstate travel to incite a riot for his alleged role in inflaming mayhem during the late May demonstrations, reported the Star Tribune on Friday.

The self-proclaimed South Texas leader of the anti-government militia group Boogaloo Bois, allegedly began firing an AK-47-type gun at the Minneapolis Police Third Precinct building while shouting, “Justice for Floyd!” as he was fleeing, according to a publicized federal complaint.

The document also notes that Hunter, wearing a skull mask and tactical gear, allegedly shot 13 rounds at the police headquarters while people were inside the building. He also looted and helped set the building ablaze, according to the complaint.

Hunter, 26, who was in the front passenger seat, was reportedly sporting six rifle magazines with two AR-15 rifles on the rear seat of the vehicle, according to the Star Tribune.
