Authorities in Kentucky have revealed a member of the National Guard fired the bullet that killed the owner of a popular BBQ stand in Louisville on June 1. The state says David McAtee was hit in the chest by a military-grade round fired from an M4 assault rifle used by the guard. An attorney for McAtee’s family said it was absurd that the government is “unleashing your own soldiers on your citizens with weapons of war.” Local police also fired at McAtee, who was a beloved figure in the community who regularly gave police officers free meals.
