Black Lives Matter Charleston Leader Mourned After Fatal Shooting In New Orleans

Black Lives Matter Charleston Leader Mourned After Fatal Shooting In New Orleans

According to The Hill, Moye was found on Wednesday with a gunshot wound to the thigh and was taken to hospital where he died.

Moye was arrested last February after he was caught on live TV grabbing a Confederate flag in protest. On Tuesday night, Newsome told Mic she'd met Moye once, but deferred commenting on his death until she could learn more about the circumstances.

"I saw, like, fear in their eyes", he said.

The New Orleans Advocate reports that he was riding a bicycle at the time of the shoot. No motive or suspects surrounding the shooting are immediately available. His body is being held in a city morgue, awaiting an autopsy. Members of his family attended the event, where his activism around police brutality and racism was highlighted.

"We are lost right now", said Moye's sister Kimberli Duncan."But we are going to find our way". "The injustice just bothered him and it never rested well with him".

Newsome is best known for a similar feat, in which she climbed up the flagpole outside of the Statehouse in Columbia and took down a Confederate battle flag.

Dozens of activists took to social media to express their sadness at Moye's death, including well-known Black Lives Matter organizer Deray McKesson, who tweeted that Moye was "a force and an incredible guy".

"I thank God for placing him here to be the soldier that he is, that he was", Walter Scott's brother, Anthony Scott, said to the station about Moye.

Thomas Dixon, head of the activist group The Coalition and a mayoral candidate for North Charleston says he plans to stand outside City Hall this evening to "peacefully remember Muhiyidin and to pray", according to The Charleston City Paper, and anyone else who wants to pay their respects is more than welcome. No one can deny that he had the potential to permanently change the conversation in Charleston. He died from excessive blood loss at 9:30am, according to a GoFundMe page set up by Moye's niece Camille Weaver.

The additional funds will be used for Moye's funeral service, Weaver said.

"Moya was a light and he will shine forever".
