A member of the far-right extremist group who impersonated a Black Lives Matter protester and fired 13 rounds from an AK-47 into a Minneapolis police station last year pleaded guilty to rioting Thursday, The Daily Beast reported.

On May 27, Ivan Harrison Hunter, 26, traveled from Texas to Minneapolis during the height of last summer’s George Floyd protests and fired gunshots in the Minneapolis 3rd Police Precinct while yelling “Justice for Floyd!” on video, according to The Associated Press and The Daily Beast.

According to NBC News, Hunter is a member of a militia group called the Boogaloo Boys that is anti-government and has the goal of starting a second civil war. Court documents suggest that he attended the protest with two other Boogaloo Boys – one of whom was accused of murdering two police officers, according to The Daily Beast.

The Minneapolis Police Department did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
