A Texas man who described himself as a member of the Boogaloo Bois — a loosely connected group of people who espouse violent anti-government sentiments — has pleaded guilty to a federal riot charge in connection to last year's civil unrest.

The U.S. Attorney's Office said 27-year-old Ivan Hunter admitted to traveling from San Antonio to Minneapolis with the intent of participating in a riot.

Court documents state that Hunter was shown on video discharging 13 rounds from an AK-47 style semiautomatic rifle into the Minneapolis Police Department's Third Precinct building on May 28, 2020.

Prosecutors say Hunter also made various statements on social media describing the violence he'd engaged in. He was arrested by police in Austin, Texas on June 3, 2020, and was found with several weapons and a tactical vest in the vehicle he was in.
