Black Paramilitary Group Marches Through Downtown Lafayette

Around 400 members of the black paramilitary group NFAC – Not F***ing Around Coalition – marched through downtown Lafayette in Louisiana on October 3, to protest the fatal police shooting of Trayford Pellerin in August.

This footage, recorded by Ben Myers for The Advocate, shows armed group members arriving at Parc Sans Souci.

The Advocate reported a 26-year-old man was arrested after a gun accidently went off in the park before NFAC members arrived.

No injuries were reported and the march ended without incident, the report said.
