Black Lives Matter leader shot, killed

Black Lives Matter leader shot, killed

Ms Weaver says: "His body is now in New Orleans; LA and we are raising money to bring him home to Charleston and then have a memorial service and funeral for his family and friends". No motive or suspects surrounding the shooting are immediately available.

In February 2017, Moye gained national notoriety for leaping over police tape to snatch a raised Confederate battle flag from a member of the South Carolina Secessionist Party.

Black Lives Matter activist Muhiyidin d'Baha launched himself in headlines when he was seen on live video attempting to snatch a Confederate Flag from a White man protesting in favor of the symbol past year.

Muhiyyidin Moye, also known as Muhiyidin d'Baha and Moya, was shot in the leg around 1am local time on Tuesday, according to police. He was transported to the hospital, where he died later that morning, according to police spokesman Beau Tidwell.

D'Baha - whose legal name was Muhiyidin Elamin Moye - was a respected social justice activist known for his strong and vocal stances against police brutality and discrimination.

Charleston journalist Shani Raine Gilchrist said that, although she'd only met Moye on a handful of occasions, he was not forgettable.

Pastor Alan Dixon told WCSC reporters that he organized the Tuesday vigil, and called d'Baha "one of the most charismatic people I've ever met in my life". "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.

"We don't have many details, but will update as soon as we do", Weaver writes on the page before thanking supporters for their condolences. I can't believe Muhiyidin is gone.

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.

ABC News 4 has reached out to New Orleans Police for more information on the circumstances of Moye's death.
