A meeting being held Sunday in Boston about the police shooting death of career Black criminal Angelo West will bar white people from attending according to the organizer.

The meeting announced by the Boston chapter of Black Lives Matter states it will be a “People of Color ONLY space.”


West was killed in a shootout with police Friday after he shot white Boston police officer John Moynihan point blank in the face during a traffic stop as part of an investigation in to an earlier report of shots fired in that area. Moynihan is in a medically induced coma as the bullet is still lodged in his head.

West tried to kill police officers in a 2001 shootout.

The Boston Black Lives Matter chapter posted to Twitter about the meeting:

“TOMORROW: Community Meeting 12:30 – 2:30pm Fields Corner Business Lab 1452 Dorchester Avenue”

“UPDATE: tomorrow’s community meeting will be a People of Color ONLY space. Thank you for respecting wishes of community & Angelo’s family.”

Officer Moynihan was honored by the White House last year as one of ‘America’s Top Cops’ for his role in saving the life of a transit officer during a gunfight with the Boston Marathon bombers in April 2013.
