A far-right extremist opened fire on Minneapolis' third police precinct and sparked violence during May's George Floyd protests, the FBI said in a sworn affidavit released Friday. Ivan Harrison Hunter, a 26-year-old from Texas and admitted member of the "Boogaloo Bois," was charged Friday with one count of interstate travel to participate in a riot. Hunter fired 13 rounds at the precinct while officers were inside and ran away shouting "Justice for Floyd," the FBI alleges. Hunter later allegedly looted the police station and helped set it on fire, and bragged about it to other members of the far-right group. He allegedly texted about the incident with Steven Carrillo, another Boogaloo member who later shot and killed a sheriff's deputy in California.
