A woman confronted protesters outside her home Saturday after Minneapolis police fatally shot a man who had fired into her apartment while her children were inside, according to KARE 11 News.

Andrew Tekle Sundberg, who was black, was shot and killed following a six-hour standoff with police after he fired into the apartment of a mother, Arabella Foss-Yarbrough, and her two young children, according to KARE 11. Shots came through the walls of the apartment while Foss-Yarbrough was cooking for her children, she told the outlet.

The local Black Lives Matter chapter shared photos of the protests Saturday, while BLM activists, including a leader of BLM Minnesota, attended the protest, according to the New York Post.

Foss-Yarbrough shared her story with the protesters outside her apartment who had gathered in support of Sundberg, explaining that her children were traumatized and their lives had been endangered by the shooter, according to a video shared by KARE 11.

“This is not OK. This is not a George Floyd situation. George Floyd was unarmed,” the mother told the protesters.

Some of them heckled her and told her to stop talking, repeatedly shouting “shut up” and “you’re alive.”

“This is not the time or the place,” one protester yelled.

Others got closer to the mother in an apparent attempt to calm her down, with one man saying, “I’m sure it was terrible.” (RELATED: Minneapolis Rioters Vandalize Buildings, Block Traffic After Amir Locke Death)

Foss-Yarbrough continued shouting back at the demonstrators.

“He tried to kill me in front of my kids,” she said, noting that one of her children is black. “My kids have to deal with this and probably have a mental illness now because they almost lost their lives. There’s bullet holes in my kitchen because he sat in the fucking hallway watching my moves.”

“I wish it never happened either. Now I don’t have a place to call home. I can’t sleep at night,” she said. “This is not OK. Just go home.”

Foss-Yarbrough shared photos of her apartment with KARE 11, showing a front door pierced with six bullet holes, a bathroom strewn with broken glass from a shattered mirror and a can of hair product pierced by an apparent bullet hole.
