At Least One Dead in Violent Protest in Virginia

Rescue workers and medics tend to many people who were injured when a auto plowed through a crowd of anti-facist counter-demonstrators marching through the downtown shopping district in Charlottesville, Virginia. During a press conference after the clashes, McAuliffe confirmed that three people have been killed in the city.

A vehicle rammed into a crowd of protesters, killing a 32-year-old woman, and a state police helicopter crashed into the woods, leaving two troopers onboard dead.

Sessions said the federal investigation "will have the full support of the Department of Justice".

Georgia political leaders took to social media throughout Saturday to express their outrage over a protest that turned violent in Charlottesville, Va.

Earlier, US president Donald Trump tweeted that "we ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for".

Before the Saturday rally, hundreds of white supremacists marched through the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville on Friday night, waving torches and chanting "White lives matter", "You will not replace us", "Jews will not replace us" and so on.

A suspect, identified as 20-year-old James Fields from OH, has been detained on suspicion of second-degree murder.

The CPD estimated that between 2,000 and 6,000 people planned to attend the "Unite the Right" rally, reports local newspaper The Daily Progress.

President Donald Trump has come under fire, including from fellow Republicans, for his apparent refusal to criticize far-right hate groups.

Corinne Geller, a State Police spokeswoman, said that the crash occurred a few hours after the downtown car-plowing attack and linked it to the violence.

They were protesting against the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

In related news, the Detroit Red Wings have issued a statement condemning and denying any connection to a Michigan-based group of white supremacists using the Red Wings logo. "I urge all people of good will-go home". "We don't need that right now in this country", Walsh said of what happened in Virginia.
