Black Lives Matter Leader Shot Dead in NOLA
quote:

A well-known Black Lives Matter activist was fatally shot in Mid-City New Orleans early Tuesday, according to a police spokesman.

Muhiyidin Elamin Moye, who preferred to be called Muhiyidin d'Baha, was found about 1:25 a.m. in the 2200 block of Bienville Street in Mid-City after he had been shot in the thigh, New Orleans Police Department spokesman Beau Tidwell said late Tuesday. The 32-year-old was taken to a local hospital for treatment but died there from his wounds later in the morning.

Tidwell said there was no information about a possible motive or potential suspects immediately available.

Relatives of Moye first reported his death to media from his hometown of Charleston, South Carolina, though the location of the slaying provided in many of those accounts was incorrect.

Countless social media users lamented the news as it spread quickly online.

The post of one person described as a dear friend said it appeared Moye died as "a random act of violence."

"He had so much life and energy and intellectual curiosity and capacity and love," the post said. "The last thing he said to me was that he was doing community work out of town and that he was learning so that he would come back to Charleston and help empower the people."

The post continued, "He was loved by all of his friends and respected by all those who want to see social and racial justice in Charleston."

Last year, media widely reported how Moye was arrested after he attempted to take a large Confederate battle flag from a protester waving it in downtown Charleston. Video captured the arrest, which reportedly prompted activists to organize an online donation site to raise $2,000 for Moye's bail.

There is only ONE fact that needs to be discovered before the "official BLM response" is decided.

Can you guess what the fact is?
