The charismatic Black Lives Matter leader became famous when he leaped over police barriers and seized a Confederate flag from a protester in Charleston, South Carolina past year.

A person identifying herself as Moye's niece has setup a GoFundMe account dedicated to helping raise money to return her uncle's body to Charleston as well as for a memorial service.

Moye said demonstrators had read that people from the South Carolina Secessionist Party were attending Newsome's speech so they wanted to send them a clear message: "We will not receive that kind of intimidation".

Walter Scott's brother, Anthony Scott, said D'Baha helped their family get justice after the shooting of his brother, according to the station.

Following the news Tuesday that Moye had died, Thomas Dixon, a pastor and political activist, remembered Moye as a "brother" and "soldier".

"Was one of the most charismatic people I've ever met in my life", Dixon said. "The last thing he said to me was that he was doing community work out of town and that he was learning so that he could come back to Charleston and help empower the people".

There were several people tonight who say they are committed to continuing his legacy in the fight for justice, education and building up the community.

Moye's death occurred during a particularly violent stretch in New Orleans.

The bloodshed brought the number of murders in New Orleans this year to at least 25. The report says a bloody trail leading to d'Baha circled two blocks, and a bloody bicycle lay across the street.

Moye, whose February 2017 arrest video went viral after he tried to snatch a Confederate flag from a protester in downtown Charleston, was later pronounced dead at that hospital, police and his family said. The account set a goal of $7,500 but already had raised almost $10,900 by Tuesday evening.

An attorney for the police department said that the incident report citing aggravated battery was the only one available, and that "the signal was recently changed to a homicide". Newsome climbed the flagpole on the Statehouse grounds and removed the Confederate flag in 2015 as lawmakers considering removing the flag from the grounds in response to the shooting at Mother Emanuel AME Church.

The incident happened outside the Sottile Theatre where Brittany "Bree" Newsome was speaking.
