Black Lives Matter Leader Shot Dead in New Orleans

Muhiyyidin Moye the leader of the Black Lives Matter movement in Charleston

There was no suspect in sight when authorities responded to the fatal shooting of Black Lives Matter activist Muhiyidin d'Baha early Tuesday morning.

32-year-old Muhiyidin Elamin Moye, who went by Muhiyidin d'Baha, was found dead on Tuesday morning with a gunshot wound to his thigh.

Unfortunately, according to local media reports, d'Baha was been shot while riding his bike in New Orleans, at around 1am local time. "He was transported to a hospital and subsequently died of his wounds". The shooting is now being investigated and being ruled as a homicide.

D'Baha is best known for jumping into a crowd and trying to grab a Confederate flag that someone was holding during a heated protest in Charleston in February 2017.

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. "I've never met anyone more committed and hardworking than him".

Samsung Group head gets suspended jail term
The verdict comes a week after Samsung announced an operating profit of $50bn previous year , a steep increase from 2016's $27bn. Samsung Group heir Jay Y Lee has been relieved from the jail sentence imposed on him in February.

His family started a GoFundMe page asking people for support for his funeral services and the campaign has so far, in less than one day, received nearly double the set goal of US$7500.

It has since evolved into a movement against police killings of Black people, taking off following the high-profile cases of Eric Garner, Michael Brown and Freddie Gray, all of whom were unarmed. "He was an asset to the Charleston community and will be greatly missed". "We all have lost so much, so very much, whether you know it or not", the friend added, asking people to donate to help bring d'Baha's body home.

"I can say that our family is beyond appreciative for the outpouring of love and support we've received today", Weaver wrote on the GoFundMe page.

"I am grief-stricken. I can't believe Muhiyyidin is gone". He was immensely gifted in so many ways.
