He was taken to hospital but despite doctors' best efforts, he was pronounced dead due to excessive blood loss. The report says a bloody trail leading to d'Baha circled two blocks, and a bloody bicycle lay across the street.

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 previous year.

The New Orleans Advocate reported that Muhiyidin Elamin Moye, 32, who went by Muhiyidin d'Baha, was found at around 1:25 a.m. after being shot in the leg while riding his bike.

The responding officer saw a traffic camera and a auto fix business's surveillance camera in the area, according to the police report.

D'Baha made media headlines one year ago when he was arrested after he jumped over a barricade and snatched a Confederate flag away from an alt-right protester at the College of Charleston.

The incident took place during a speech by another Black activist Bree Newsome, the woman who climbed a flagpole and unhooked the Confederate flag at the South Carolina State House in 2015.

A Black Lives Matter activist from SC died Tuesday after sustaining a gunshot wound in New Orleans, a member of his family has confirmed.

"Muhiyyidin was a warrior for this community and a attractive soul", said one person who donated to help cover d'Baha's funeral costs. "I've never met anyone more committed and hardworking than him".

His family started a GoFundMe page asking people for support for his funeral services and the campaign has so far, in less than one day, received nearly double the set goal of US$7500. "He was an asset to the Charleston community and will be greatly missed".

The community held a vigil at North Charleston City Hall Tuesday night where family and friends spoke.
