Authorities served a search warrant at the St. Louis home of a white couple who pulled guns on protesters.
Mark and Patricia McCloskey, who are personal injury lawyers, were caught on video brandishing guns as demonstrators walked past their Renaissance palazzo-style home on June 28 while headed to protest outside of the mayor’s home nearby. The video showed Mark McCloskey, 61, wielding a long-barreled gun and Patricia McCloskey, 63 standing next to him waving a handgun.
The search turned up the AR-15 that had been held by Mark McCloskey, while a handgun brandished by Patricia McCloskey was already in possession of her attorney, according to reports.
No charges have been filed against the couple. The McCloskeys have said that they were in fear of the protesters and were protecting their home when they were seen pointing firearms at the crowd.
