三名男子被指控犯有谋杀未遂罪。白人至上主义领袖斯派塞星期四在佛罗里达州的根斯维尔讲话之后,这三名男子被控向反纳粹示威者开了一枪。

根斯维尔警察局星期五公布了一份报告,说28岁的藤布林克和分别为30岁和28岁的菲尔斯两兄弟在斯派塞讲话不久后被以杀人罪逮捕。

这三名男子都来自德克萨斯州。警方说,三人在汽车里朝一个公共汽车站手举抗议标语的人开枪,同时行纳粹礼。

警方的报告说,有犯罪前科的藤布林克在一名抗议者用木棍敲打汽车后窗后走出汽车,手里挥舞着手枪。与此同时,菲尔斯兄弟在一旁高喊:“杀死他们!朝他们开枪!”

警方说,藤布林克开了一枪,打到附近的一栋建筑。除了谋杀未遂罪以外,藤布林克还被指控有犯罪前科持有枪械罪。

警察说,这几名嫌疑人逃离了现场,当天晚上被警察逮捕。警方还说,三人中至少两人与“极端主义团体”有关联,但是没具体说是哪两人。

Three Charged With Attempted Murder After White Supremacist Event

Three men have been charged with attempted murder in Gainesville, Florida, for firing a shot at anti-Nazi protesters after a speech by white supremacist leader Richard Spencer on Thursday.

The Gainesville Police Department released a report Friday saying Tyler Tenbrink, 28, and brothers William and Colton Fears, ages 30 and 28, respectively, were arrested on homicide charges soon after Spencer’s speech.

The three men, all from Texas, were in a vehicle when they began shouting and making Nazi salutes at a group of people holding protest signs at a bus stop, according to police.

A police report said Tenbrink, a convicted felon, got out of the car after one of the protesters struck the back window with a baton.

The report said Tenbrink brandished a gun while the Fears brothers shouted “kill them” and “shoot them.” Police say Tenbrink fired a single shot, which hit a nearby building. In addition to the attempted murder charge, Tenbrink is also being charged as a felon in possession of a firearm.

Police say the suspects fled the scene and were apprehended by police later that evening.

Police said at least two of the three have ties to “extremist groups,” but did not specify which two of the men.
