A Nebraska bar owner committed suicide after he was charged for fatally shooting a black rioter who vandalised his business in May.
On May 30, Gardner was assaulted by a Black Lives Matter mob outside Gardner’s Hive bar in the midst of riots in the Old Market, an area in downtown Omaha.
At the point when he was dropped to the ground, Gardner discharged two shots trying to ascend to his feet. At that point a fight broke out with 22-year-old James Scurlock before Gardner shot Scurlock dead.
The black agitator had broken windows to Gardner’s bar and other neighboring organizations.
Gardner killed himself near Portland, Oregon, a city known for its rioting and unrest in the streets.
Gardner was indicted by a grand jury on counts of manslaughter, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, attempted first-degree assault, and terrorist threats.
Douglas County District Attorney Don Kleine originally ruled the case an act of self-defense and decided not to pursue charges but after pressure from the BLM mob he was charged by a Grand Jury just last week.
