Rep. Maxine Waters joined rioters outside the Police Station in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, on Saturday night telling them that unless Derek Chauvin is convicted of murder for the death of George Floyd, they need to take to the streets. She encouraged confrontation and glaringly endorsed violent mob rule. (read more on that here)

It appears her calls to action may have already been answered.  The Minnesota National Guard released the following information on Twitter today:

“A @MNNationalGuard and @MinneapolisPD neighborhood security team was fired upon early Sunday morning in a drive-by shooting near Penn Avenue and Broadway in Minneapolis.

The shooting occurred on or about 4:19 a.m., as a light-colored SUV fired several shots at an @MinnesotaOSN security team providing neighborhood security. No team members were seriously injured.

Two @MNNationalGuard members did sustain minor injuries from the incident. One Guardsman sustained an injury from shattered glass requiring additional care and was taken to a local hospital to receive treatment. The other Guardsman received only superficial injuries.

“I am relieved to know none of our Guardsmen were seriously injured,” said Maj. Gen. Shawn Manke, the Adjutant General of the @MNNationalGuard. “This event highlights the volatility and tension in our communities right now. I ask for peace as we work through this difficult time.”
