“pleaded not guilty to one charge of attempted murder and four counts of wanton endangerment in his first court appearance Tuesday”
A Black Lives Matter supporter and gun control activist named Quintez Brown was arrested this week for the attempted shooting of a candidate running for mayor of Louisville.
Brown has been running for a seat on the Louisville Metro Council.

Local activist arrested for attempted shooting of Louisville mayoral candidate
A local activist and columnist has been arrested in connection with firing a shot directly at a Louisville mayoral candidate.
On Monday night, Louisville Metro Police announced Quintez Brown, 21, was arrested and charged with attempted murder after he allegedly fired shots into Craig Greenberg’s campaign office on Monday morning. He is also facing four counts of first-degree wanton endangerment.
Police responded to the report of shots fired Monday morning at the Butchertown Market at 1201 Story Avenue, where Greenberg’s campaign has an office.
Greenberg was not hit by a bullet, but a round hit his clothing, according to Louisville Metro Police Chief Erika Shields.
According to an arrest citation, Brown fired several gunshots with a 9-millimeter Glock handgun toward Greenberg.
The Courier Journal, where Brown was a columnist at one point, has more:
Brown, 21, pleaded not guilty to one charge of attempted murder and four counts of wanton endangerment in his first court appearance Tuesday.
Greenberg, a Democrat frontrunner for mayor, said Monday that a man entered his office in Butchertown Market and fired several shots at him, with one bullet grazing the back of his sweater.
A police report says a man later identified as Brown entered the building about 10:15 a.m. and fired a 9mm Glock handgun at Greenberg before fleeing.
Officers found Brown less than half a mile from the campaign headquarters about 10 minutes later, carrying a loaded 9mm magazine in his pants pocket, according to the arrest report.
He also had a drawstring bag with a handgun, handgun case and additional magazines, the report said.
Here’s a local video report from WLKY News:
Brown attended the progressive gun control event ‘March for Our Lives’ in 2018. During the coverage, he was interviewed by MSNBC’s Joy Reid. This is cued to start at the 3:15 mark:
Quintez is apparently a socialist as well:

I suspect we won’t be hearing much more about Quintez Brown from the media. This story doesn’t fit the preferred narrative at all.
