Teen’s Shocking Video Goes Viral

Monday, April 24th, 2017

Washington, D.C.- A teenaged boy has brought a startling video of violence, taken with his cellphone, to the eyes of the world.  The video, which has spread across social media sites, having been at the time of press shared over two million times, begins with a sandy-haired young man in the back of a car, riding through a city at night.

It opens with a brief introduction, “S***!  Y’all’ve gotta see this”, and then the camera pans to record the scene out his window: an armored SUV, surrounded by armed men on foot, blocks an intersection by a highway overpass.  As the car he rides in turns, sounds of gunfire begin.  In the opposite lane, a man in black leather leaps at one of three armed people in military-style clothing and body armor, beats him, almost faster than the eye can see, then throws his body into oncoming traffic.  Shots continue to be fired at the man, who picks up and throws a car at the two remaining militia members.

The location of the incident shown is believed by our news team to be Martinsburg, West Virginia.  The young man in the first seconds of the video and his family have not been available for comment.  Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to contact us.
