Allen Scarsella guilty of assault in 2015 protest shooting

A Hennepin County jury convicted Allen Scarsella of felony first-degree assault in a November 2015 incident where five people were shot at a Jamar Clark protest in north Minneapolis.

Brandon Stahl of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

The jury deliberated for seven hours following two weeks of testimony from nearly two dozen witnesses — including surprise testimony from Scarsella and a co-defendant — before returning guilty verdicts on all counts. They watched several videos taken before and after the shooting, including ones of Scarsella making racist comments; and they viewed numerous texts where Scarsella described his intent to kill black people.
