Black protester shot in the head by Austin Police

AUSTIN, Texas — A 20-year-old black protester was shot in the head by Austin Police with “less-lethal” ammunition during demonstrations against police brutality on Sunday night.

The young man identified as Justin Howell, a political science student at Texas State University, remains in critical condition.

Doctors anticipate that when he wakes up, he will have difficulty telling his left from his right, reports said.

Video posted online appears to show Austin Police officers firing “less-lethal” rounds on a group of people attempting to get medical attention for the injured protester.
