Dozens of people were killed due to criminal activities that occurred during BLM/Left-wing rioting in 2020. Hundreds, possibly thousands, were injured. This is only a partial list.
This list will be continuously updated here. You can help contribute by sending us names. We are only included those killed as a direct result of criminal activity. If we used the same journalistic standards of CNN, MSNBC, Washington Post, and others, there are many more we could list, such as Jacob Gardner who committed suicide after months of persecution and harassment by BLM.
Activists are scrubbing this data from Wikipedia right now. Many major media outlets are pretending like it never happenend. It is very important that a permanent exhaustive list is created because activists are trying to re-write history.
There were many outright murders and attempted murders. Most were committed using firearms, but at least one murder victim was killed by fire. There are two main categories of these murders. The largest category was people murdered as part of the rioting. There is a smaller category of murders, in which BLM/Antifa rioting was used as a cover to carry out murders against other people within a protest/riot area (Such as Italia Kelley in Davenport, IA). There were also many people killed in self-defense shootings.
Another large number of deaths were caused by rioters engaged in criminal activity. Such as the rioter who blew himself up in Philadelphia trying to open an ATM machine with explosives. USAToday reported in early July that over 100 rioters had been hit by cars while illegally blocking traffic in cities all over America.

Two homicides and a self-defense shooting in Minneapolis, Minnesota
On May 28th, 2020, BLM and other far-left groups engaged in mass arson and violence in Minneapolis, MN. Among the destroyed buildings were occupied second-floor apartments, a brand new public housing complex, and a Native American Youth Center.
Two murders occurred during the rioting in Minneapolis. Neither was widely reported in the media. A female victim was found dead in the riot zone. Her body was in the backseat of a car that had been abandoned in the middle of the road. Police said the woman had visible trauma and they were opening a homicide investigation. This victim does not appear to have even been ever been identified by the media. There is a surveillance video of a female in visible distress that rang someone’s doorbell nearby, but it was never confirmed if it was the same woman. During the rioting, a report came across the Minneapolis police scanner about a “screaming woman” who was being forced into a car. A Minneapolis Star Tribune reporter even tweeted about this. There were allegations on Twitter of a second possible abduction of a female victim at another nearby location. However, the Minneapolis Star Tribune never followed up on any of this.
Oscar Lee Stewart Jr., the owner of Max Pawn was killed when his store was set on fire. Montez Terriel Lee, a black male, was charged with burning down the pawnshop. Prosecutors say he is on video pouring an accelerant all over the shop. Millions of dollars, some from major Hollywood celebrities, poured in to provide lawyers for Lee and dozens of others arrested. It remains to be seen if he is ever prosecuted for murder.
Calvin Horton Jr. was killed in a self-defense shooting. He was involved in the looting of Cadillac Pawn & Jewelry.
Homicide in Atlanta, Georgia
In early July, a group of armed BLM activists blocked traffic in Atlanta. When some cars did not stop, multiple perpetrators opened fire on passing traffic.

One person has been arrested, but the gunman who killed Turner remains at large. The investigation has been hampered because witnesses are refusing to cooperate.
Two homicides in Cicero, Illinois
After much rioting, local police make a large effort to reclaim downtown Chicago. What happened, was a mass of so-called “activists” moved from downtown to Cicero. A mostly black crowd appeared in a mostly Latino area of Cicero, looted small businesses, threw bottles at predominantly Latino motorists, and murdered two Latino men. The attack was a huge blow to race relations in the Chicago area, as the violence was widely viewed as racially motivated by the Latino community.
Victor Cazares Jr, 27, and Jose Angel Gutierrez, 28, were both murdered. Cazares was working inside a shop that was looted. Gutierrez was walking down the street when he was murdered. Zion Haygood, a black male, was charged with first-degree murder for killing Gutierrez.
Two homicides and a self-defense killing in Indianapolis, Indiana
On July 5th, Jessica Doty Whitaker, a young white mother, was murdered after walking past a group of Black Lives Matter supporters. The group ordered Whitaker and her friends to proclaim “Black Lives Matter.” Instead, someone in her group said “All Lives Matter.” The BLM supporters pulled out guns and threatened them. Whitaker’s fiance, Jose Ramirez, withdrew a concealed handgun and the perps appeared to back off.
However, at least one person stalked Whitaker and Ramirez as they continued walking down the road. He stood on a bridge and shot Whitaker in the head as the couple was walking past below him. As far as we know, the killer is still at large. Local media ceased reporting on the investigation after July.
Indianapolis also saw three days of violent rioting by BLM protesters in late May. Two people were killed.
Christopher Beaty, a 38-year-old former Indianapolis football player, was shot multiple times and killed. It is believed that Beaty was trying to prevent BLM rioters from looting stores.
Also during the BLM riot in Indianapolis, police say Dorian Murrell, an 18-year-old black male, was part of a group that mugged a female victim in a parking garage. Police say his accomplices were brothers Anderson and Alijah Jones. Hours after the mugging, a white male pedestrian was attacked from behind by a group of black males. The victim, Tyler Newby, had a concealed carry permit. Believing he was about to be murdered, he rolled over and fire one shot. Murrell was standing over top of the victim and was killed.
Anderson Jones, an alleged accomplice of Dorian Murrell, has been charged with killing Christopher Beaty. The murder of Beaty occurred shortly after Dorian Murrel, Anderson Jones, and Alijah Jones allegedly mugged a woman and a few hours before the unprovoked mob attack on Tyler Newby.
