George Floyd protester who fired at Minneapolis cops acquitted


A man charged with attempted murder after firing on Minneapolis cops during a George Floyd protest in May 2020 has been acquitted of all counts.

Attorneys for Jaleel Stallings, 29, of St. Paul, argued he acted in self-defense, saying he fired three shots from a handgun at an unmarked white van after being struck by rubber bullets, believing he was under attack by civilians, the Associated Press reports.

He surrendered after realizing he was firing at police, while no officers were injured, court documents show.

Stallings had been facing two counts of second-degree attempted murder, multiple counts of assault and other charges.
