A white man who is reportedly a member of the hate group the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) shot his daughter’s Black boyfriend several times and after being arrested, was released on just $500 bail, according to News One.

Patrick Creath Jr., 43, has been charged with malicious wounding, along with use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, in connection with the shooting that took place in Virginia Beach, Virginia, on June 19th.

Court documents state that on June 19th, Creath claimed his daughter’s boyfriend “kept threatening to kill him” and pointed a gun at him and his daughter “as if to shoot them” while he was driving away. Creath claimed he feared for their lives and shot the boyfriend “in defense of himself and his daughter.” The boyfriend was hit three times and his car was riddled with bullets.

Police responded to the scene and claim that they recovered a gun that was allegedly the boyfriend's, yet, he has not been charged with any crime.

Civil rights activist and attorney, Ben Crump, went on Twiter to bring awareness to this case.
