On Oct. 23, the Department of Justice announced that a member of the “Boogaloo” far-right extremist movement has been charged in connection with violence in Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd in May. The criminal complaint charges Ivan Harrison Hunter with one count of traveling in interstate commerce to incite a riot and carry out violence. The Justice Department alleges that Hunter fired into the Minneapolis Police Department’s Third Precinct building using a semiautomatic rifle. Hunter is the third member of the movement to be charged in connection with the violence in Minneapolis, after two men who allegedly participated in violence during the protests were later arrested for other charges in the District of Minnesota in September.
