During the violent Black Lives Matter riots in Dallas Thursday night, a man was seen wearing camouflage and carrying a rifle. Dallas Police suspected he was one of the snipers, and his picture was posted all over social media and national news headlines.
Now, Mark Hughes says he had nothing to do with the attack, and as soon as he heard police were searching for him, he went to police and surrendered his weapon. But he’s upset that he was wrongfully identified as one of the shooters. “Ya’ll have my face on national news, are you gonna come out and say this young man had nothing to do with it?” he asked.
However, he WAS attending a Black Lives Matter riot, carrying a rifle.

They posted a picture of #MarkHughes, in world record time. Clocked in at 5 secs flat.
But they still haven’t shown the real suspect yet.
