Three supporters of white nationalist Richard Spencer were arrested Thursday for their role in a shooting that followed an afternoon speech by Richard Spencer at the University of Florida.

Tyler Tenbrink, William Fears, and Colton Fears are all being held in Alachua County Jail for charges of attempted homicide.

Gainesville police say each man has shown connections to extremist groups. Tenbrink is a convicted felon and faces additional charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Before he was arrested, Tenbrink told a Washington Post reporter that he had attended the "Unite The Right" rally in Charlottesville and applauded Richard Spencer because "the man's got the brass to say what nobody else will".

Tenbrink is under a $3 million bond and the Fears brothers are each under a $1 million bond. With his friends yelling "kill them" and "shoot them", Tenbrink fired one shot, which missed the protesters and hit the building behind them.

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

The men fled in the Jeep, but were located at about 9 p.m.on Interstate 75, about 20 miles north of Gainesville, authorities said.

"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.

It doesn't matter who signs up first: Amazon will email instructions to the other on how to set up teen shopping. Parents can also set pre-approved limits per order, which allows teens to keep purchases under a certain budget.

The other two suspects, who are siblings, purportedly urged Tenbrink to shoot and slaughter the general population in the gathering, the capture report said.

The community had taken considerable steps to prevent violence at the Spencer event.

Florida's governor had declared a state of emergency for the event.

'We don't want violence. we don't want harm. "But if he argues he got out of his auto to check on the damage, was confronted by the guy with the baton, and said he felt threatened, then that's Stand Your Ground".

Fears told NBC that Spencer's speech will "normalize the idea for white people to have an identity, to advocate for their own interests and to advocate for our own existence".

Spencer is the president of a group called the National Policy Institute, which asked to organize an event at the university, a public school. Units from two police departments and the Florida Highway Patrol conducted what was described in a police press release as "a high-risk Felony stop" on the suspects' vehicle.
