Three men who showed support for white nationalist Richard Spencer during his speech at the University of Florida this week face attempted homicide charges after pulling a handgun and firing a round near protesters at a Gainesville bus stop.
The men, Tyler Tenbrink, William Fears, and Colton Fears, are all from Texas and were identified as suspects of the Thursday shooting, following Spencer's speech.
The protesters told Gainesville police detectives the men lauded Nazi Germany leader Adolf Hitler when they arrived at a bus stop in a silver Jeep sport utility vehicle. One of the protesters smashed the back window of the vehicle with a baton and Tenbrink fired a round from a handgun.
No one was injured, although William and Colton Fears instructed Tenbrink to kill them, the Alachua County Sheriff's Office report said.
The men were some of the first to arrive for Spencer's speech at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday. The shooting happened at approximately 6 p.m. after the speech concluded.
Alachua deputies arrested the men after they found the Jeep on Interstate 75. A handgun was recovered from the vehicle.
