Brandon McCormick Bow-and-Arrow Video
On Saturday, May 30th, McCormick showed up with a bow-and-arrow in the middle of a Salt Lake City protest, but the protesters surrounded and took him down, jumping on his car and, by some accounts, setting it on fire, according to viral videos of the incident.
Multiple videos show the man pointing a bow-and-arrow at protesters, who then surround and jump on him. One man comes at the guy with a skateboard. People also throw things at him.
“He’s shooting a f*cking bow,” says someone in one of the videos. “Get this motherf*cker, man,” says another person.
“Look at this. You call yourself an American,” one woman challenges the man in a viral video. “Yes, in America, all lives matter,” he responds, according to Fox 13. When he points the bow and arrow, the woman says “Don’t you dare!”
One Twitter user wrote, “He was yelling and me, and then aimed his bow at a black man standing behind me. The black man saw it coming, charged, and tackled him. The SLC police retreated and allowed rioters to light the man’s car on fire.”
According to local news reports and an update from one of our readers, the police did not retreat neither did they allow protestors to torch the man’s car. They extracted the man from the crowd and never went into the crowds for anything other than to extract the injured persons.

He later did an interview with KSTU-TV claiming he was attacked
McCormick later did an interview with KSTU-TV where he revealed his name was Brandon McCormick and said he pulled up on scene to help officers because he had weapons. He gave an interview “blooded and bruised.” However, the TV station reported that citizen videos, which you can watch below, instead show him randomly pointing the bow-and-arrow at people.
