Seven out-of-state ANTIFA domestic terrorists from the group Stop Cop Atlanta have been charged with domestic terrorism and criminal trespass charges.
Of the seven, one was killed during a deadly shootout at Atlanta’s ‘cop city’ and has been identified as Manuel Esteban Paez Teran, 26.
The 26-year-old was shot dead after allegedly opening fire at a Georgia State Patrol trooper during a ‘clearing operation’ of the so-called autonomous zone at the site of a future $90 million Atlanta Public Safety Training Center on Wednesday.
Since June 2021, Antifa and other far-left extremists from across the US have occupied the area to prevent the construction of what they’ve dubbed ‘cop city.’
The Georgia Bureau of Investigations (GBI) said a Georgia State Patrol trooper was shot and severely injured during the raid by a man camped in the area. Officers returned fire and killed the gunman, who allegedly used a pistol.

On Wednesday morning, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and other law enforcement agencies conducted a raid on the so-called autonomous zone at the site of the future Atlanta Public Safety Training Center. Since June 2021, Antifa and other far-left extremists from across the US have occupied the area to prevent the construction of what they call a “cop city.” The GBI says a Georgia State Patrol trooper was shot and severely injured during Wednesday’s raid by a man camped in the area. Officers returned fire and killed the gunman, who allegedly used a pistol.
Georgia’s Department of Public Safety will not name the injured patrol trooper, saying it would “compromise security against criminal or terroristic acts due to retaliation,” but told local media he was in the ICU after having emergency surgery.
The deceased gunman was named on Thursday by the GBI as 26-year-old Manuel Esteban Paez Teran. He used the alias “Tort” and “Tortuguita.
“Manuel used they/it pronouns…please make sure we are remembering them properly and respectfully,” wrote the Atlanta Community Press Collective in their statement revealing the shooter’s identity.
Following the shooting, the GBI and its law enforcement partners continued to clear the autonomous zone and several arrests were made of suspects—all of whom are from out of state.
The GBI said they confiscated a cache of weapons that include mortar-style fireworks and edged weapons.
Matthew Ernest Macar, 30, Spencer Bernard Liberto, 29, and Sarah Wasilewski, 35, all from Pittsburgh, are each facing charges of domestic terrorism and aggravated assault upon a public safety officer.
A fourth suspect who would not identify himself in jail was later identified as 20-year-old Geoffrey D. Parson, of Baltimore.

The shooting and four arrests on Wednesday follow another raid last month on the autonomous zone that resulted in six others being charged with domestic terrorism.
