The man started a fire after the speech, white nationalist, was accused of attempted murder

On Thursday at the University of Florida there was a presentation of the white nationalist Richard Spencer. In this regard, the state Governor even had to introduce a state of emergency in the County. Despite increased security measures without provocation, was not.

After Spencer’s speech to the protesting crowd on the car was approached by three men. They were 28-year-old Tyler Tenbrink and brothers William and Colton Fears. They immediately staged a verbal argument and started to threaten the demonstrators, and the few times depicting the Nazi salute.

According to eyewitnesses, after the brothers Fears began shouting the phrase «Kill them» and «Shoot them», Tenbrink got the gun and really shot into the crowd. Fortunately, the bullet didn’t hit anyone and hit a nearby building. After shooting the three men quickly got into the car and fled the scene.

Find the suspects, it was easy – one of the protesters remembered the license plate of the car. A few hours later, police detained three men. As found by law enforcement agencies, two of them associated with «extremist groups«.

Brothers Fears was taken into custody with the opportunity to make a pledge of $ 1 million. Previously convicted Tenbrink, who is credited with the possession of a firearm, can be released from the detention center after the payment of the sum in the amount of $ 3 million.

Reuters journalists interviewed Tenbrink and Colton Fearsom prior to the performance of Spencer. Then Tenbrink called himself a white nationalist and said he was interested in «preserving our heritage and American way of life».

Fears told reporters that he specially tacked on to the t-shirt Nazi pin with skulls and crossbones, to provoke people at the event.

We will remind, more than two months ago in Charlottesville, Virginia, there were clashes between neo-Nazis and protesters. Subsequently, killing one girl and several more were injured.

Fortunately, the protest in Gainesville was largely peaceful. In the campus there were still some scuffles, in which five people received minor injuries.
