MIAMI-Luis Gonzalez a 50-year-old man from Hialeah, Florida has been charged with a hate crime and attempted murder after police determined he was lying after he told them he was shot in the head in an attempted robbery.
Police found out that there was no attempted robbery and that Gonzalez was shot after trying to run over two African American males after he yelled racial slurs at them and told them to leave his city.
CBS Miami reports:
As Hialeah detective dug deeper they were able to determine that Gonzalez had indeed lied to investigators and was not the victim of a robbery, but instead the aggressor.
As for why he did it, Gonzalez said he was a crime victim during the 1980 “McDuffie Riots” and “has held resentment for black people ever since.”
