Shocking videos and images show a St. Louis couple yelling and pointing guns at Black Lives Matter protesters who were marching through their upscale neighborhood Sunday evening.

Hundreds of protesters were taking part in a march to Mayor Lyda Krewson’s house Sunday evening when they passed through the couple’s gated community.

The couple have since been named as Mark and Patricia McCloskey, two personal-injury lawyers, according to The Riverfront Times.

Bystanders took video and pictures of the couple pointing guns at the protesters and yelling at them from their front lawn. President Donald Trump retweeted one of the videos, without adding any comment, on Monday morning.

The husband was armed with what appeared to be a semiautomatic rifle with an extended magazine, while his wife held a small handgun.

While some of the protesters stopped to stare at the gun-toting couple, others in the crowd could be heard urging them to move on.

The journalist Jonathan Myerson Katz tweeted that the couple might have been breaking a state law.

Missouri law says a person “commits the offense of unlawful use of weapons” if “he or she knowingly exhibits, in the presence of one or more persons, any weapon readily capable of lethal use in an angry or threatening manner.”
