A gun control activist has been accused of shooting at a Louisville mayoral candidate on Monday morning — but the suspect's attorney claimed his client has a history of mental health issues and asked a judge to take that into consideration.

What are the details?

Quintez Brown, 21, was charged with attempted murder and four counts of wanton endangerment in connection with the shooting at the office of Democratic mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg, the Louisville Courier Journal reported.

The paper added that Brown is a civil rights activist as well as a former intern and editorial columnist for the Courier Journal. And in 2019, he wrote an op-ed for the paper titled "Kentucky's concealed carry law shows your life doesn't matter to gun-loving Republicans."
