AUSTIN (CBSNEWS.COM) — A U.S. Army sergeant says he’s the person who shot and killed a Black Lives Matter protester in downtown Austin Saturday night and he did it in self-defense, according to the Dallas law firm representing him.

An attorney with Broden, Mickelsen, LLP said late Thursday that Sergeant Daniel Perry, an eight-year veteran, is the person who killed protester Garrett Foster.

The disclosure comes as Austin police seek the public’s help to learn more about the events that led to the shooting. No one has been arrested or charged in connection with Foster’s death.

    Stupid people and their stupid protests . Now this guy has to lawyer up over this . Never point a gun at someone unless you intend to use it !

    Another left wing media outlet lying about the violent, racist BLM/Antifa riots and looting, intended to impose their Marxist goals on America by force.

    No mention of the ‘protestor’ seen and heard on video shooting first six times at an innocent motorist who the mob had decided to lynch. No mention of the ‘protestor’ being interviewed just prior with his AK-47 bragging about cops being afraid of hem. No mention that the cops released him on the spot as it was clear it was self defense.

    Wake up America.

    Typical Austin mainstream/dishonest media BS. Where is the video of Garrett pointing an AK-47 at the driver? That video is out there, but you’ve chosen not to include it in your slanted story.

    Garrett got what he deserved. Tried to intimidate, got shot. And why do you include his sister’s statement? She wasn’t there. Her statement is just her opinion. Nothing more.
