According to a statement released by the Gainesville, Florida, Police Department, 28-year-old Tyler Tenbrink of Richmond, Texas, and brothers 28-year-old Colton and 30-year-old William Fears of Pasadena, Texas, engaged in an argument with protesters following the speech.

William Henry Fears, 30, Colton Gene Fears, 28, and Tyler Tenbrink, 29, each face charges of attempted homicide, the Gainesville Sun reports.

A group of officers called in stopped the vehicle and took the men into custody.

He added that the manager didn't charge him for the meal. "We promote usually small batch local producers in our menu". We can't fry at this location and it the fried chicken I love so much and I ate a ton of it in the ATL.

At least two of the men are linked to "extremist groups", police said, without specifying which two.

As ThinkProgress reported, Tenbrink and the Fears brothers have a history of racism.

The event was heavily protested but mostly went off without violence, until three men in a silver Jeep pulled up to a bus stop around 5:20 p.m. Thursday after Spencer had ended his speech. "That key piece of information allowed officials from every level of multiple agencies to quickly identify and arrest these persons". Detectives said Tenbrink admitted to the shooting, according to his arrest report.

'This is a mess. Durrance said his friends told him the men shouted "Sieg Heil" before firing the shot. 'It appears that the only answer left is violence, and nobody wants that'.

The incident came about two months after rallies by neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, led to violent clashes with counter-protesters.

Dressed in all black, King joined the estimated 3,000 marchers as they gathered outside of the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and chanted down Spencer and other members of his group, the National Policy Institute.
