Portland Trailblazers’ center Enes Kanter posted a video of his brother, Ahmet being robbed in a parking lot in Atlanta. The footage from the parking lot shows Ahmet and his friend going to their car. They are stopped by three men, one of whom is armed, who threaten them and appear to take their phones and wallets.

Kanter took to Twitter to demand gun control measures and reassert a demand for peace as well. He is known for being one of the more politically active players in the league. Furthermore, He’s been barred from returning to Turkey for repeatedly speaking out against the President.

Kanter’s call for gun control comes at a time where the crime rate in Atlanta is soaring. This year, it overtook Chicago as one of America’s most dangerous cities to live in.

No official word has been received on whether any arrests have been made.
