A hacker who launched a digital protest following a not-guilty verdict against a police officer who killed a black motorist has been raided by the FBI.

The man known as “Vigilance” told the Daily Beast that FBI agents searched his home in Minnesota for allegedly hacking into government and education websites in the state in June. He’s accused of posting stolen email address and other information online.

The man, whose real identity wasn’t revealed, breached the websites after police officer Jeromino Yanez was found not guilty on charges of manslaughter for shooting black motorist Philando Castile

“They knocked, cleared the house with their guns,” the man said, adding that his electronic devices, including a laptop, were seized.

No charges have yet been filed.
