Armed NFAC Militia Protesters Shoot Each Other Accidentally While 'Taking a Knee'
3 leftists shot as group 'takes a knee' and threatens to 'burn this motherf****r down'
Three radical-left protesters were injured in downtown Louisville when a fellow member of their armed black militia group accidentally discharged a firearm during a demonstration.
Earlier reports stated that the shots were fired as a result of an argument between the far-left group and an opposing organization gathered nearby.
However, it was later confirmed that a member of the Atlanta-based NFAC "Not F*****g Around Coalition" militia had accidentally fired on fellow leftists as they assembled in Baxter Square Park.
On Saturday, an estimated 350 armed members of the group had gathered there before marching toward the main protest site in downtown Louisville.
About 50 counter-protesters from militia group Three Percenters were also gathered nearby.
Shortly before 1 p.m., a shooting near Baxter Square Park was reported.
Reportedly, the firearm of a protester accidentally discharged, and three individuals were injured.
All three victims were transported to the University of Louisville Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to Louisville Metro Police Chief Robert Schroeder.
The person who accidentally fired their weapon is a member of NFAC, which is a far-left all-black militia.
The bullets struck other militia members of the NFAC as they reportedly "took a knee" in protest.
When the shots rang out, people scattered, and others took shelter behind cars, according to WHAS-TV reporter Jessie Cohen.
BREAKING: We just watched two people be taken onto stretchers at Baxter square on 12th and Jefferson. Metro safe has confirmed reports of shootings & that there are multiple victims.

"All involved are members of the NFAC and there are no outstanding suspects," Schroeder said.
"This is a tragic situation that could have been much worse.
"I encourage anyone choosing to exercise their Second Amendment rights to do so responsibly."
The LMPD reportedly confiscated a firearm from the NFAC.
A police department spokesperson described the shooting as "negligent," and said there were "no charges at this time" and there were no outstanding suspects, according to The Daily Beast.
One of the members of the NFAC said, "We had a little accident, it happens."
After the accidental shooting, approximately 500 NFAC members continued their demonstration and marched through the city.

Along with the heavily-armed NFAC, the far-right militia group Three Percenters also gathered in Louisville.
Just hours after the shooting, the leader of the NFAC vowed the group would return to Louisville to "burn this motherf****r down" if the investigation into the death of Breonna Taylor is not completed in four weeks time.
John "Grandmaster Jay" Johnson delivered a fiery speech from the steps of the Metro Hall on Saturday afternoon as he called the group to take action if "the truth" about Taylor’s death was not released.
As Neon Nettle recently reported, NFAC has demanded territory from the U.S. government to establish a "black nation" inside America, warning if the group's demands are not met, then "we'll take Texas."
NFAC describes itself as an "eye for an eye organization” comprised of "ex-military.”
The radical-left group warns they "don’t want to negotiate" and is demanding the United States gives free land to all black people descended from slaves so they can form a black ethnostate inside the US.
A video of NFAC's "Grand Master" issuing demands for "a black nation" went viral shortly after the militia group made an appearance at Stone Mountain, Georgia.
The NFAC was protesting in Louisville to demand justice for Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old woman who was fatally shot in her Louisville home on March 13 by plainclothes police who were serving a no-knock warrant.
Taylor's boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, believed the police were home intruders and shot at the officers, striking one of the cops.
Taylor was shot eight times.
Police were serving a search warrant for a narcotics investigation.
No drugs were found at Taylor's apartment.
Louisville has since banned no-knock search warrants.
Last month, there was a deadly shooting during a Breonna Taylor protest in Kentucky.
One man was shot dead, and another was injured at a demonstration in Jefferson Square Park in downtown Louisville on the night of June 28.
