Black Lives Matter Leader Gunned Down In New Orleans

A key organizer of the Charleston Black Lives Matter movement was fatally shot by an unknown gunman on Tuesday morning.

​New Orleans, LA – A key organizer of the Charleston, South Carolina Black Lives Matter movement was fatally shot by an unknown assailant early Tuesday morning, police said.

Muhiyidin Elamin Moye, 32, who went by the aliases of Muhiyidin d’Baha, “Moya,” and “Moye,” was found with a gunshot wound to his thigh just before 1:30 a.m., The New Orleans Advocate reported.

Police said that Moye, who was riding a bike when the attack occurred, continued traveling for several blocks after he was shot, leaving a trail of blood on the ground, The Post and Courier reported.

Moye was transported to a hospital, where he later died, New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) spokesman Beau Tidwell told The New Orleans Advocate.

According to a Go Fund Me page designated for Moye’s funeral services, investigators notified his family that Moye “had died due to excessive blood loss” just after 9 a.m.

The fundraising effort had raised more than $24,000 at publication time.

Police have not named any suspects, nor have they released information about a possible motive, The Post and Courier reported.

A spokesman for the New Orleans Coroner's Office, Jason Melancon, said Moye’s death had been ruled a homicide, WCSC reported.

The Black Lives Matter activist was best known for having jumped into a large crowd in an attempt to snatch a Confederate flag from a protestor in Charleston in February of 2017.

During the incident, which occurred on live television, Moye jumped over yellow police tape and knocked the protester’s large flag to the ground. He was immediately arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and damage to personal property.

He was also charged with disorderly conduct in July of 2016, after he disrupted a North Charleston City Council meeting, and demanded that the committee form a citizens’ board to review police actions.

Moye further ordered that the board should be given the power to discipline officers.

Hey, Justicelover. You "know" killed by cops, how??? Please, enlighten/inform us. We'd like to know.

His life didnt matter because according to the group, BLM, that he supported, only the lives of the few blacks murdered by whites matter. The lives of thousands of blacks murdered by other blacks dont matter. And odds are that he was murdered by another black thug.

As a justice lover I'm sure you can appreciate the irony of this story.

I'm going out on a limb here but I bet he was pro police right after he was shot and before he died.

Your a sad excuse for a human aren’t you! More Police Officers are murdered every year than people killed by Police actions.

Justice? Justice is when you are PUNISHED for breaking the law. YOU wouldn't know "justice" if it walked up and bit you on the ass. And the only PIG in the equation was the one your momma fucked.

I suggest you look at the crime rate in New Orleans. No one with any common sense is out that late on the streets where he was shot. It is too dangerous. Someone either wanted his money, phone or bike. Although it is unfortunate, it is not unexpected. You will never find who did it because people there will not talk.

Forensics can probably forget about tracing the gun used (provided a projectile was recovered) it was probably stolen or smuggled.

Justice lover will be the first to call police when he is a victim. He thinks he is a victim already just because he is black. The chart says it all. We can't let these liberal hate lovers like Justicelover take over. If my Great great grandfather would have known this shit was going to happen, he would have picked his own damn cotton. The black race has been given more opportunities and handouts than any race, in any country at any time and any country. You want responsibility? Then clean up your ghetto, educate your children, get some religion from God and Jesus do something about your race instead trying to blame everything on the system. It's not going to get any better unless you take a different approach. FYI... for your dumb ass... Donald Trump had nothing to do with this, I know you were going there so don't even try. You ancestors in Africa, the tribal kings sold your race out to America. They are the ones that traded your race as slaves. If you have a problem with living in America, move your ass to another country. How about Africa... where you would be killed if you try to pull that shit over there. And, the black police would not even care about who you are and what you stand for. I hate the fact that a life was lost, it truly was underserving. However I personally thought the guy was a waste of a black skin. Still a human, but a lost one. Just like you Justicelover.

@coldheartedorb DAMN if you didn’t hit it straight on! So f’n tired of the BLM’s bitching & moaning about how the whites did them wrong! It was their own as you said. The FIRST salve sold was by a black man. HISTORY DOES NOT LIE!!!

You said it all!! When I had a conversation with an elderly black lady who had lived through the 60s she told me that she was fed up with the Young Generation because they have no clue what's going on and they should just learn to live their lives and make them self better.

One less shit bag.
BLM is a
Domestic terror group.
All they do is preach kill cops and attack society.
We had a black president
We had 2 black U.S. Attorney Generals
We have black supreme ct justice
We have black Senator from NC.
Enough with the unlevel playing field. If you work hard and sacrifice you can be anything if you commit yourself.

I wonder who shot him? I hope it wasn't a white guy, or there will be a shit storm. There is too much racial tension in this country as it is. We don't need to pile onto it.
