Cops: Men Shouted "Heil Hitler" Before Firing Shot After White Nationalist Speech

VIDEO — Black Protestor Hugs It Out With Nazi At UF Richard Spencer Talk!

Specialists say the three suspects pulled up to the transport stop around 5:30 p.m. what's more, begun yelling "Hail Hitler" at the gathering while at the same time tossing Nazi salutes. In interviews with the news media captured before the shooting, both Tenbrink and the elder Fears brother told reporters they came to Florida from Texas to support Spencer.

The Alachua County Sheriff said at least one person, Sean Brijmohan 28, was arrested. That meant a state of emergency being declared in Gainesville by Gov. Rick Scott, the influx of more than 1,000 law enforcement officers to watch over almost 2,500 demonstrators and a virtual suspension of normal campus life - not to mention the outsize attention Spencer craves.

"I am amazed that immediately after being shot at, a victim had the forethought to get the vehicle's license number", Gainesville Officer Ben Tobias said in a prepared statement. Tenbrink fired a single shot at an unidentified victim, which missed, according to authorities.

Three men were arrested for their alleged role in a shooting incident following Spencer's speech, according to the Gainesville Police Department.

The men had driven up to the protesters in a silver Jeep and made threatening comments when Tenbrink pulled out a handgun and was encouraged by the Fears brother to shoot at the protesters.

An off-duty Alachua County Sheriff's deputy spotted the men's Jeep when he stopped during his drive home to continue the search.

In an interview with The Gainesville Sun, William Fears told a reporter that he sided with James Fields, who drove his auto into a crowd of protesters as tensions built in Charlottesville, Va. following a Spencer-led white nationalist rally. "We don't want your Nazi hate!" and "Let's go Gators" during his speech, frustrating the head of the National Policy Institute. We don't want violence; we don't want harm.

Spencer's speech was his first on a university campus since he led a torchlight march through the University of Virginia in August, with followers chanting, "You will not replace us", and "Jews will not replace us".

They remain in Alachua County Jail - the Fears brothers on $1 million bond, and Tenbrink on an even heftier $3 million bond.

After that violence, University of Florida officials denied Spencer's request to speak on campus - as did several other public universities - "amid serious concerns for safety".

Florida's governor declared a state of emergency for the event. The Gainesville Police Department reported that Tenbrink is a convicted felon, and therefore faces additional charges for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
