The gunshots just missed the group of six to eight people, hitting the business they were standing in front of.

William Henry Fears, 30, Colton Gene Fears, 28, and Tyler Eugene Tenbrink, 28, (pictured above from left to right) were charged with attempted homicide.

According to The Los Angeles Times, the three men defended Spencer's message while counter-protesters passionately showed their disdain for the white nationalist leader's ideas proposing a white ethnostate. Tenbrink is also charged with possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.

The men fled the scene and headed north on Highway 75, police said. Tenbrink got out of the vehicle with a handgun while William Fears and Colton Fears yelled, "I'm going to f--ing kill you", and "Shoot them". One of the witnesses copied the Jeep's tag number and alerted authorities, who stopped the men shortly thereafter. This was an awesome team effort by everyone involved'.

New twist in MH370 tale as Malaysia agrees to resume search
"Australia, at Malaysia's request, will provide technical assistance to the Malaysian government and Ocean Infinity". Malaysia's decision to proceed with the search shows the commitment to find MH370".

Before Spencer's speech on Thursday, the Gainesville Sun actually interviewed William Fears about why he drove from Houston to hear an advocate of ethnic cleansing lecture college students about free speech.

"For anyone who holds controversial viewpoints I think this is probably a little bit reassuring or at least should be that UF took more of the right steps in this situation", Kruth said. "We do not want your Nazi hatred" and "Nazi rubbish out of our streets", are some of the slogans shouted by the demonstrators, who far outnumber the supporters of the ultra-right figure. But at the end of the day, we're not opposed to defending ourselves'.

Tenbrink told the Sun that he traveled to Gainesville from Houston to see Spencer's speech. Bristow claims in the statement that he helped the American Civil Liberties Union when it sued to allow a "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August that led to deadly violence when 20-year-old white nationalist James Field Jr., of OH, struck and killed a protester with his auto. The University of Cincinnati last week ultimately decided they would "uphold the First Amendment" and allow Spencer to speak, after a threat of a lawsuit from Bristow.

Before the shooting occurred, William Fears claimed that only one side was responsible for violence when protests arise.
