The pair have been identified locally as personal injury lawyers Mark and Patricia McCloskey. One clip shows several protesters angrily confronting Patricia McCloskey while she points a handgun at them on her lawn.

A fellow lawyer from Missouri, a guy I know named Mark McCloskey committed an assault tonight in STL by pointing his AR 15 at peaceful protesters. He should be arrested and charged with assault immediately. The MO Bar should revoke their licenses. https://t.co/6N75iFLDtT
