The black nationalist anti-police terrorist* who a murdered law enforcement officers in Louisiana had a carbine and a handgun during his attack, and was taken out less than ten minutes into the attack by a single shot by a Baton Rouge SWAT team member from more than 100 yards away as the terrorist attempted to return to his vehicle where he had a second rifle stored.
The 29-year-old terrorist, a black former Marine who apparently hated every race except his own as revealed in his bizarre social media accounts, used a IWI Tavor carbine in his rampage. The Tavor is a bullpup, semi-automatic (one shot per trigger pull) 5.56 NATO caliber carbine. His Tavor was equipped with what appears to be a Meprolight M21 reflex sight and what may be a 42-round ProMag magazine.
This cop-hating former member of the Nation of Islam first shot two Baton Rouge Police Officers as they came up from behind him around the rear corner of a beauty supply store into an alley. He engaged both officers, killing one immediately and wounding the other. The surviving officer fell back around the corner to the rear of the building, temporarily in cover. A Sheriff’s deputy left cover to run up and attempt to provide aid to the surviving wounded police officer. Unfortunately, the domestic terrorist had used his time to close the gap, pied the corner, and then killed both the wounded officer and the deputy that had so bravely run to help his fellow officer.
The terrorist circled back towards where his vehicle was parked and where his backup rifle was stashed when he was engaged by a SWAT officer and killed with a single shot.
The murder had a Springfield Armory XD9 pistol Mod. 2 9mm pistol in his possession, but there is no evidence that he fired it during his deadly rampage.
Despite claims from some “earwitnesses” of “bursts” of gunfire, the Tavor can only fire one shot per trigger pull. The same witness claim that as many as 60 shots were fired, but there isn’t any evidence released yet that suggests the terrorist reloaded his carbine before he was killed.
Initial claims that he was wearing body armor also do not appear to be substantiated.
The domestic terrorist, who advocated shooting police officers as “justice” for incidents of black criminals like Alton Sterling being killed while fighting with police, had a Stag Arms AR-15 in his car as a potential backup weapon, but it was never fired during the attack.
Like the other black nationalist terrorist who murdered police officers in a Dallas, Texas sniper attack only days ago, the terrorist who attacked these law enforcement officers in Baton Rouge pointedly disavowed being part of the “Black Lives Matter” before he carried out his attack, even though his Twitter and YouTube accounts show that he was closely aligned with the movement, conversed with BLM activists, and had the same murderous anti-police mindset so common among Black Lives Matter and New Black Panther Party radicals.
