Minneapolis, MN – Heart-wrenching video showed a woman screaming at activists gathered in front of her apartment to protest the police shooting of an armed man who was trying to kill her in front of her children on Wednesday (video below).
Arabella Foss-Yarbrough, 24, said her neighbor, 20-year-old Andrew “Teckle” Sundberg, started shooting into her apartment on July 13 as she was making dinner for her children, FOX News reported.
Foss-Yarbrough said bullets tore through the apartment and almost killed her and her two year old and four year old.
She called 911 and police helped the family escape from their apartment as the gunfire continued, FOX News reported.

A search warrant said that as the building was being evacuated, “officers started taking fire.”
A six-hour standoff ensued between police and Sundberg, FOX News reported.
“At some point during the standoff, the two snipers shot the male subject,” according to the search warrant.
Officials said the 20-year-old gunman was shot by two Minneapolis police snipers, FOX News reported.
Officials said that more than 50 officers were involved in the standoff and investigators were reviewing hundreds of hours of bodycam and radio audio recordings.
Activists were outraged that police killed Sundberg and demanded officials release bodycam video of the incident, FOX News reported.
Critics claimed police should have been able to apprehend the active shooter alive, and anti-police attorney Ben Crump complained the gunman’s parents were “highly restricted” in communicating with their son during the standoff.
A GoFundMe set up by Foss-Yarbrough’s sister said that Sundberg had been harassing and stalking his neighbor for six months.
But despite that, anti-police protesters set up in front of Foss-Yarbrough’s apartment building on Saturday, FOX News reported.
Frustrated with the support her would-be killer was receiving, Foss-Yarbrough got out of her vehicle and confronted the protesters.
Video of the dramatic scene showed the angry mother screaming at them about “celebrating his life” after Sundberg tried to kill her.
“This is not okay!” Foss-Yarbrough screamed at the protesters. “This is not a George Floyd situation. George Floyd was unarmed. He was unarmed! This is not okay!”
“My kids have to deal with this and probably have a mental illness now because they almost lost their lives,” the mother continued. “There’s bullet holes in my kitchen because he sat in the f–king hallway watching my moves.”
She said she wished it had never happened because now she doesn’t have “a place to call home,” the video showed.
“This is not okay,” the young mother said again.
A protest organizer could be heard commenting that Foss-Yarbrough was “obviously going through a moment” and that it was what the television cameras wanted.
Another person off camera told her to “shut up,” the video showed.
She repeatedly told the protesters to go home and said none of those people had checked on the man’s mental health before he shot at her family.
A Black Lives Matter Minnesota organizer approached the woman, the video showed.
Foss-Yarborough pushed the activist away.
“I have Black children; I am a woman of color!” she screamed in the other woman’s face.
Foss-Yarbrough is black, white, and Native American, FOX News reported.
“If I would have lost my life, would you guys do this for me?” she asked the protesters.
“He tried to kill me in front of my kids,” Foss-Yarbrough added.
