Washington – The Olympia Police Department on Friday released surveillance video of Antifa dressed in black bloc shooting Proud Boy Tusitala “Tiny” Toese.
Last weekend the Proud Boys and other right-wing protesters had been facing off with members of Antifa who showed up to antagonize a medical freedom rally. Toese was reportedly attempting to chase them off when he was shot, though it is currently unclear who shot him.

Toese is Samoan, but that has not stopped far-left activists and media from portraying him as a “white supremacist.”
Antifa accounts spread disinformation and lies about the shooting and said “Tiny” was trying to shoot at them when he accidentally shot himself instead.
That was a lie.
Tiny was unarmed and surveillance video shows the Antifa terrorist shooting at the Proud Boys 5 times before running away.
