Two soldiers with the Minnesota National Guard sustained injuries after someone shot at them early Sunday morning in north Minneapolis just hours after Democrat US Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) urged BLM and ANTIFA rioters to get “more active, more confrontational.”
“A Minnesota National Guard and Minneapolis Police team were fired upon by a light colored SUV early Sunday Morning,” said Lt. Col. Scott Hawks. “Two National Guard members did sustain minor injuries from the incident. One National Guard member was taken to a hospital to receive care for lacerations from shattered glass.”
The attack took place around 4:19 a.m. as soldiers and police provided security in the area of West Broadway and Penn avenue. “This event highlights the volatility and tension in our communities right now. I ask for peace as we work through this difficult time,” said Maj. Gen. Shawn Manke, Minnesota National Guard Adjutant General.

According to dispatch audio, the shooter was driving a white SUV that was spotted fleeing the scene heading west on West Broadway towards Robbinsdale. Minneapolis police lost sight of the vehicle near Hwy. 100.
Rep. Maxine Waters traveled to the Minneapolis area city of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, to participate in the ongoing riots in the area sparked by the death of Daunte Wright. Just hours before National Guardsmen were shot at, Waters urged the rioters to “stay on the street and get more active, more confrontational. They’ve got to know that we mean business.”

“Waters has previously endorsed aggressive confrontations with individuals who disagree with leftist politics. In 2018, she famously told members of a crowd to publicly confront members of the Trump administration,” reported National File.
Maxine Waters says that Chauvin premeditated the murder of George Floyd and that if Chauvin is not convicted a crime he wasn't charged with they should get "more confrontational"
