On Thursday, Antifa shooter Samuel Young was found guilty of seven counts stemming from a July 2020 shooting on an Aurora, Colorado, highway. Young was found guilty of four counts of attempted manslaughter, two counts of second-degree assault, and one count of illegal discharge of a firearm, according to 9News.


Young's trial began on March 22, with the jury beginning its deliberations on Thursday morning. Young will be sentenced on May 17.

On July 25, 2020, Young was among a crowd protesting the death of Elijah McClain, who died after a police encounter. The group at one point moved down East Alameda Avenue and onto the highway, which had to be closed down. A Jeep was traveling down the highway, and some protestors jumped out of the way to avoid it. Police said there were no reports of anyone being injured by the vehicle.

In response, Young fired at the Jeep, but missed, instead striking two fellow Black Lives Matter protesters. One man was shot in the leg and another was grazed on the head by a bullet. Both went to the hospital for their injuries.

Young's defense attorney Jason Kosloski argued that his client fired his gun to protect others. "When Samuel Young fired those shots it was a second between people dying on that roadway, somebody tripping and falling and becoming roadkill," Kosloski claimed. "Samuel Young made a split-second decision and acted, and that's why Samuel Young is innocent," the lawyer added.

Prosecutors argued that Young's actions that day were not justified.

"Those decisions that he made to pull his gun, to fire at the jeep under those circumstances, was not justified," said prosecutor Tom Byrnes.
