Wednesday night, a Daytona Beach police officer was shot in the line of duty by Othal Wallace, a black nationalist while being told to re-enter his car.
Bodycam footage shows Wallace standing up out of his car in an escalation against the Daytona officer who was attempting to de-escalate the situation.
The officer directed Wallace to re-enter his car. Struggle commenced and a shot followed. The officer fell to the ground and Wallace fled in what authorities believe is a gray 2016 Honda HRV. Authorities are offering $100,000 for the information leading to the capture of the black nationalist.
Authorities have not released a suspected motive for the shooting of the critically injured Daytona officer.
Social media images show that Wallace updated his profile picture in September 2020 to depict himself carrying a rifle and wearing a black mask with a white fist that represents the slogan “Black Power.”
The picture of Wallace was taken at a Black Nationalist NFAC (Not F***ing Around Coalition) Militia demonstration. NFAC has been involved in several shootings over the past two years. While a motive has not been declared, many suspect the shooting is related to the rise of an anti-police movement among the American left and organizations like Black Lives Matter (BLM) and NFAC.
The summer of 2020 saw a large rise in violence and property damage due to rioting of left-wing groups in America as a response to the death of George Floyd. “Defund The Police” became a common slogan among prominent left-wing figures and was adopted and furthered by groups like NFAC and BLM.
At this time, the suspect has not been apprehended by law enforcement and a motive has not been declared by officials.
