A man was shot at a protest aimed at toppling a conquistador statue in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on Monday amid clashes between demonstrators and an armed militia group, reports said.

One person, who is believed to be the gunshot victim, was taken to the hospital in critical condition after the gunman opened fire on a group of demonstrators attempting to remove a statue of Spanish conquerer Juan de Oñate, according to NBC News.

The shooting took place as a group of six heavily armed members of a militia group called the New Mexico Civil Guard began to clash with protesters, the Albuquerque Journal reported.

Albuquerque Police Chief Michael Geier said the department was looking into the possibility that the militia group escalated the tension.

“We are receiving reports about vigilante groups possibly instigating this violence,” Geier said on Twitter late Monday. “If this is true [we] will be holding them accountable to the fullest extent of the law, including federal hate group designation and prosecution.”

A person at the protest tweeted an image of a man he identified as the shooter being detained by police. The suspect allegedly said his father works for the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office.

A police spokesperson said officers used tear gas and flash bangs to protect officers and detain those involved in the shooting. He said they were disarmed and taken into custody for questioning as police worked to secure the scene.

The live video imagery I watched yesterday had the "militia" guys decked out almost exactly like the fellows whom I assume in this image are police. (Police don't usually look like this on a regular beat.) Both look military in costume and equipment.  I'd have been confused about which was which and whom was whom were I there on the scene.

All of the imagery I saw was before the cops showed up.

The whole point of the costuming is to look "Military".  Camo or All Black looks Military.  You are conditioned through life to both respect and FEAR the military.  For those who join these groups, be they cops, right wing militia or left wing Freedom Fighters, it gives them a sense of identity.  You get the opportunity to suffer from that.
