Domestic Terrorists Arrested For Attempted Homicide After White Nationalist Rally

3 Texas men who chanted 'Heil Hitler' charged in shooting after Spencer speech

Three supporters of white nationalist Richard Spencer were arrested Thursday for their role in a shooting that followed an afternoon speech by Richard Spencer at the University of Florida.

Gainesville Police charged 28-year-old Tyler Tenbrink and brothers Colton and William Fears with attempted homicide. Police say two of the three have connections to "extremist groups". Tenbrink was also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Tenbrink said he had driven from Houston to see Spencer speak, while William said he was "tired of the anti-white media" and thought the man who drove through a crowd of protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August and killed Heather Heyer as a result, "wasn't unjustified".

Police said shortly before 5:30 p.m., a silver Jeep stopped to argue with a group of protesters near a bus stop. Police said that's when Tenbrink got out of the vehicle and took out a handgun while the Fears brothers yelled "shoot them" and "kill them", according to the report. Tenbrink fired a single shot, which missed the group and struck a nearby building. Police say the victims were at a bus stop not far from the event, when a Jeep with four men inside pulled up and started yelling at them. All three remain in the Alachua County Jail and are under at least $1 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.

Authorities said two others were arrested, including one for carrying a gun on campus and another for resisting an officer without violence. They were "threatening, offering Nazi salutes and shouting chants about Hitler", the Gainesville Police Department said in a statement.

Spencer began by thanking the some 500 police officers who secured the event, as well as the University of Florida's president for allowing the event to proceed.

The community had taken considerable steps to prevent violence at the Spencer event.

Before Spencer's speech, the Sun had spoken to Tenbrink and the Fearses.

Security costs for the University of Florida Police Department, Gainesville Police Department, Alachua County Sheriff's Office, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Florida Highway Patrol and other agencies total more than $500,000, according to the school website.
