Quintez Brown is a Black Lives Matter advocate and gun control advocate. He was arrested in connection to the attempted murder of Craig Greenberg, Louisville mayoral candidate.
Brown, once featured by the Obama Foundation as a “rising face,” was charged with attempted murder and four counts of wanton endangerment following the targeted shooting on Monday.
There is no indication that the shooter was motivated. Greenberg is a Democrat.
The Louisville Courier-Journal reports that the suspect simply walked into Greenberg’s office and began shooting at him.
The incident resulted in no injuries. One bullet grazed the candidate’s shirt. According to the outlet Brown has pled no guilty to these charges.

“To them (Republicans), your life doesn’t matter,” he wrote.
Brown was alleged to have fired a 9mm Glock pistol at Greenberg. He later found a loaded 9mm magazine inside his pants pocket when he was arrested.

Brown also received a special mention at the University of Louisville because he was awarded a spot at a major gathering.
That national gathering involved former President Barack Obama, on behalf of the Obama Foundation’s My Brother’s Keeper Alliance.

“I was able to meet and speak to President Barack Obama. I shook his hand, looked him in the eye, and told him my name and where I came from,” Brown said of the experience.
Charles Booker, candidate for Senate in Kentucky, had tweeted praise for Brown as “a brilliant young scholar” and mentioned that he spoke at his Senate launch in 2019.
Brown was reported missing several days earlier, possibly foreshadowing mental health problems.
