3 white supremacists charged with attempted murder after Richard Spencer speech

Chris King was the only Florida governor candidate to protest Richard Spencer

Police in Gainesville, Florida arrested three domestic terrorists following a rally featuring white nationalist leader Richard Spencer at the University of Florida campus in Gainesville on Thursday, October 19.

Each of the three face lawful offense accusations of endeavored murder, police said. Tenbrink is a convicted felon, police noted, and could face an additional charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Tyler Tenbrink, 28, reportedly came out of the vehicle brandishing a gun after one of the protesters hit the Jeep with a baton.

Authorities say the three suspects pulled up to the bus stop about 5:30 p.m. and started shouting "Hail Hitler" at the group while throwing Nazi salutes.

Tenbrink opened fire but missed, the bullet striking a business behind one of the victims.

An eagle-eyed witness remembered the Jeep's license plate number, which proved to be a big break for police.

Police stopped the trio on Interstate 75, where Tenbrink told them he fired the shot, officials said.

They remain in Alachua County Jail - the Fears brothers on $1 million bond, and Tenbrink on an even heftier $3 million bond. William Fears was featured in a Washington Post article about white supremacists, while his brother's now-deleted Twitter account included racist comments.

The incident happened the same day Spencer gave a speech at the University of Florida, where he was heckled and drown out by protesters. The other two suspects, who are brothers, allegedly encouraged Tenbrink to shoot the people in the group.

Florida's governor had declared a state of emergency for the event.

The community had taken considerable steps to prevent violence at the Spencer event. "But if he argues he got out of his vehicle to check on the damage, was confronted by the guy with the baton, and said he felt threatened, then that's Stand Your Ground".

"We had complete unknown about the numbers of people who they may be coming to our area and what their intent would be", said Sheriff Darnell.

Tenbrink told the Sun that he traveled to Gainesville from Houston to see Spencer's speech.

The school estimated it would spend $600 000 on security to ensure no repeat of violent clashes connected to a white nationalist gathering in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left one dead in August.

The protests in Gainesville were mostly peaceful.
