A Kentucky restaurant diner pulled out a gun after being confronted by a group of Black Lives Matter protesters.
About 50 demonstrators gathered in Louisville on Saturday carrying signs that read “We haven’t forgotten Breonna” and chanting Taylor’s name.
Taylor was a 26-year-old black woman fatally shot by police during a drug-raid-gone-wrong in March 2020.
After the protesters marched into the city’s Highlands district they arrived at the La Chase restaurant, where an elderly patron pulled a gun and pointed at it at them, according to a video posted on Twitter.
The man continued pointing the weapon as some of the protesters tried to confront him, but they were held back by a woman who repeatedly told them to keep going.
The incident luckily did not escalate and the clip does not show what led the man to pull his gun.
About five minutes after the confrontation, a police vehicle arrived at the scene at around 8:35 p.m. but it is not clear if they intervened in any way, according to the Courier-Journal.

The Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) said later that they received a call about a group of armed protesters entering the restaurant’s outside dining area.
The LMPD said an employee told them “that multiple armed protesters entered the … outdoor dining space. During the encounter both patrons and protesters brandished firearms.”
About 20 minutes before the standoff, three LMPD arrested several protesters who refused to leave the roadway.
It only took a few years for mainstream reporters to go from being biased to outright activists. Hang around LaCorte News to get some news without the spin.
