Gainesville’s CBS affiliate reports:
Three men were arrested for shooting, and threatening a group of protesters with Hitler chants, following white supremacist Richard Spencer’s speech. The Gainesville Police Department was alerted to a silver Jeep arguing with a group of protesters near a bus stop at 5:30 p.m. Tyler Tenbrink, 28, William Fears, 30, and Colton Fears, 28, began threatening the protesters with Nazi chants and salutes to Hitler.
According to GPD, the altercation became increasingly hostile and Tenbrink fired a single shot at the group. The bullet missed the protesters and struck a nearby building. The men then fled the scene in the jeep. One of the protesters managed to see the vehicle tag number and immediately reported it to police.
All three men are currently in the Alachua County Jail on charges of attempted homicide. Tenbrink is a convicted felon, and faces additional charges of possession of a firearm by convicted felon. The Fears brothers are under $1 million bond, and Tenbrink under a $3 million bond.
One of the men had been interviewed by local news before the incident. All three reside in Texas.
