Protesters and local activists — some of whom heard the bullets fly right over their heads from behind — were also shocked by the shooting. Some questioned the timing and dynamics of the assault, saying “something is off.”
“After everything that happened to us over the years and especially the last seven months, it just does not make sense that someone would shoot at cops after we have got these victories,” Bassem Masri, a regular presence at the protests, told VICE News. “People have been killed, arrested, assaulted — and someone chose the night the chief resigns to perpetrate violence?”
“This is an outside agitator that wants to undo all the work protesters have put in,” he added. “This isn’t a coincidence by any means.”
