Black Lives Matter (BLM) Louisville reportedly teamed up with the Louisville Community Bail Fund to post bail for Quintez Brown, the suspect in the shooting of mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg.
BLM Louisville reportedly delivered the Louisville Community Bail Fund’s check posting Brown’s bail on Wednesday, a day after reports that Brown had allegedly tried to assassinate Greenberg at the candidate’s campaign headquarters in Butchersville, Kentucky.
BLM Louisville and the Louisville Community Bail Fund did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Local media reported Wednesday that the organizations were posting bail for Brown, with BLM Louisville organizer Chanelle Helm saying the bail fund would shell out the $100,000 posting.
Quintez’s bail was posted Wednesday afternoon, with the individual paying the bail wearing a “Free Angela Davis” shirt — referencing the activist and former Communist Party USA member.
Brown, 21, was charged with attempted murder and four counts of wanton endangerment after he entered Greenberg’s campaign headquarters in Butchertown and fired multiple shots using a 9mm Glock handgun, police said. Nobody was hurt, but Greenberg’s shirt was grazed by a bullet, police said.
