Black Lives Matter 757 marches in Virginia Beach for Donovan Lynch and Deshayla E. Harris

Black Lives Matter 757 marched Saturday night throughout Virginia Beach, drawing attention to the site of a mass shooting that left nine injured and two dead last month. Donovan Lynch, who would have turned 26 Saturday, was shot by police amidst a firefight between civilians. Police initially claimed Lynch was armed but later retracted their claim, saying that a firearm was "in the vicinity" of his body and that there was "no immediate evidence" it belonged to him. At least one additional injured person was hit by police, and three were arrested. Deshayla E. Harris, 28, who police admit was a bystander, was also killed by a stray bullet, but police have not charged anyone in her shooting. An organizer with BLM757 contended that police likely killed her in the crossfire. The officers involved wore bodycameras, but did not activate them during the incident.
