Richard Spencer Fans Shoot At Protesters After Speech

Three men were arrested on Friday for allegedly being involved in a shooting that broke out right after white nationalist Richard Spencer's controversial speaking event at the University of Florida.

Tenbrink told the Sun that he traveled to Gainesville from Houston to see Spencer's speech. The men at the center of the violence were Tyler Eugene Tenbrink, and Colton Gene Fears, both 28 and Colton's brother, 30-year-old William Henry Fears.

No one was injured in the shooting after the Gainesville speech, which drew hundreds of protesters and a smaller group of Spencer fans, along with a massive deployment of police trying to prevent a repeat of the street violence that marked a Spencer-related rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August, police said.

The confrontation unfolded at around 5:30 p.m. Thursday, when the occupants of a silver Jeep stopped to argue with a group of protesters assembled near a bus stop, Gainesville police said. The victim of the shooting heard someone in a moving auto shout at a group of people, "Hail Hitler!" along with other hateful chants.

According to an arrest report, the three men were in a vehicle when they stopped by a bus stop and began arguing with a man, who was in a group of six to eight people. As the brothers urged him to use it, Tenbrink then fired one shot, thankfully missing the group. The protester was able to provide the license plate number to police, and officers put out an attempt to locate bulletin on the vehicle.

Police say that one of the victims was able to get the Jeep's license plate number and later that evening an off-duty sheriff's deputy pulled the auto over about 20 miles north of Gainesville.

Police say two of the three have connections to "extremist groups". Tenbrink went on to recite the "14 words" used as a motto by white supremacists: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children". Tenbrink is also charged with possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.

In an interview with the Gainesville Sun, William Fears said that the man who drove a auto into a crowd of protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing one woman, was justified and that white supremacists were defending themselves against leftists.

Protesters began yelling and chanting when Spencer took the stage, and he criticized them for trying to suppress his speech.
