A prominent Black Lives Matter activist who was filmed on live television jumping over a police line and grabbing a Confederate Flag in Charleston has been shot dead.
Muhiyidin d'Baha, who was also known as Muhiyidin Elamin Moye or Moya, was shot in New Orleans at 1am on Monday morning and died in hospital at 9.30am from a loss of blood, his family said.
On a GoFundMe page set up by the family, his niece Camille Weaver said there are no more details about his killing and the family are attempting to raise money to transport his body back to Charleston.
Little is known about the killing, other than that D'Baha was shot in the thigh on Bienville Street in New Orleans, according to the NOPD.
Police have yet to release any details about suspects or motive for the shooting, and it is believed D'Baha was in New Orleans for personal reasons rather than on any Black Lives Matter work.
