A Minneapolis mom shut down Black Lives Matter protesters after revealing what really happened when a man was killed by police after an intense six-hour standoff.
Arabella Foss-Yarbrough, a mother with two young kids, called the police on a Wednesday night after her neighbor Andrew “Tekle” Sundberg allegedly fired shots at her apartment while she was cooking.
“My kids have to deal with this and probably have a mental illness now because they almost lost their lives,” she said. “There’s bullet holes in my kitchen because he sat in the f–king hallway watching me move. He tried to kill me in front of my kids.”
Photos from inside Foss-Yarbrough’s home show multiple bullet holes in her front door, walls, and just above her bathroom sink, according to the New York Post.
“This is not a George Floyd situation. George Floyd was unarmed. This is not OK,” Foss-Yarbrough was seen yelling at a group of protesters on Saturday. “He tried to kill me in front of my kids,” Foss-Yarbrough said in the video.
Regardless of her sentiments, however, BLM Minnesota activists led by Trahern Crews gathered outside Sundberg’s home on Saturday, demanding justice for the felled gunman.
“We’re here to respect life, demand justice, and we’re demanding the release of the bodycam footage,” Crews chanted, according to the Star Tribune.
The distraught mom had none of it.
Foss-Yarbrough yelled, “I have black children; I am a woman of color! If I would have lost my life, would you guys do this for me?”
“Yes, ma’am,” Crews replied.
Minneapolis police plan to release hundreds of hours of footage from more than 50 officers who were at the scene as requested by the public.
Andrew was adopted by the Sundbergs from Ethiopia and according to his family, he was having a mental health crisis at the time of the shooting.
“Tekle was an imperfect human as we are all imperfect humans and he did not deserve to be picked off like an animal from a rooftop,” his mother said.
The Sundbergs emphatized with Foss-Yarbrough’s ordeal.
“I wish I could wrap my arms around her and tell her I’m so sorry,” Cindy Sundberg said. “I’m so sorry she had to experience that, I’m so sorry for her pain.
