The Garrett Foster Shooting in Austin: Here’s the Other Side.

 In 2nd Amendment

Garrett Foster was the BLM protester who was shot dead after he approached a vehicle with his loaded AK 47. We previously reported the incident here. The driver claims to have shot Foster in self-defense.

The man who shot Foster was an active duty Army Sergeant – his name is Daniel Perry, 33.  At the time of the incident, he was working for a ride share company, picking up and dropping off fares. Perry’s attorney, Clint Broden, gave the following information to the New York Post in an effort to stop some of the inaccurate narratives being promoted.

The attorney claimed that Perry had dropped off a fare moments [before] and was waiting for more clients when he encountered the BLM protest.

When Perry had turned on the city’s Congress Avenue, “several people started beating on his vehicle,” Broden said.

“An individual carrying an assault rifle, now known to be Garrett Foster, quickly approached the car and then motioned with the assault rifle for Mr. Perry to lower his window,” Broden said, explaining that Perry believed the person was with law enforcement.

“After rolling down the window, it became apparent to Sgt. Perry that the individual with the assault rifle was not with law enforcement. It has now been confirmed by several witnesses that this individual with the assault rifle then began to raise the assault rifle toward Sgt. Perry,” Broden said.

The attorney added, “It was only then that Sgt. Perry, who carried a handgun in his car for his own protection while driving strangers in the ride share program, fired on the person to protect his own life.”

Broden said “immediately after” the shooting, “a member of the crowd began firing on Sgt. Perry’s vehicle. Sgt. Perry drove to safety and immediately called the police.” 

Sgt Perry immediately drove to safety and called 911. He cooperated fully with police, and was released at the time pending further investigation. Foster was shot 3 times, which is consistent with the sounds of rounds being fired in the video. The other grouping of five shots may have been a protester shooting at the vehicle.The investigation is ongoing.

    tragic life change for all involved , not going to point blame at anyone , but were the roads still open while protestors are in streets with assault riffles,
    ill be honest if I turned on a street and a crowd started beating on my car and another walked up with an assault riffle and approached my car with it and I didn’t know what was going id react to. The roads need to be closed or protestors off the road that’s a disastrous mix

    These assault riffles need to be strapped to the backs and not moved — the Driver of the vehicle should have never seen the assault riffle if it was strapped like its suppose to be———I know everybody wants to carry and all of this and that — seriously a cool down with no protesting for awhile — to many folks are getting hurt and police == their a limit and 4 months is enough
