Charlottesville Attack: What We Know About James Alex Fields Jr

15 Août 2017

The counter-protesters assembled against the "Unite the Right" rally, which saw at least 15 others injured in addition to those hurt when 20-year-old James Alex Fields, Jr. of Maumee, Ohio, drove a auto into the crowd.

Fields is being charged with one count of second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding, and an additional vehicular charge. Far-right activists flocked to Charlottesville for the rally while hundreds of anti-fascists turned up in a counter protest.

Thousands of people have been holding rallies and vigils for the Charlottesville victims, after a 20-year-old white nationalist plowed a vehicle into a throng of people, killing one and injuring almost 20.

The woman he killed, Heather Heyer, was a 32-year-old paralegal from a nearby town.

"Downer assigned a court-appointed attorney to represent Fields, and set another hearing for August 25", Debbie adds. He joined the Army in 2015 but left after four months "due to a failure to meet training standards".

Bro said in a statement, "Thank you, President Trump, for those words of comfort and for denouncing those who promote violence and hatred".

Bro said she hopes her daughter's death won't become the focus of more hatred. "Justice will be delivered", said President Trump . The Miller Law Group said in its online bio of Heather that she had a lot of knowledge and experience in the bankruptcy field .

A 20-year-old man from OH is being held and could face a second-degree murder charge. "We knew, oh this kid, young kid at the time, has very, kind of white supremacist, Nazi views, he really adores Hitler, things like that". The company said Fields has since been terminated.

Fields' mother Samantha Bloom told the Associated Press in an interview Saturday night that she was not aware her son was attending a white supremacist rally.

Derek Weimer was Fields' high school history teacher.

In a separate incident, authorities said a state police helicopter assisting public safety efforts with regard to the protests, crashed in a wooded area outside the city, killing two officers on board.

Following the chaos, President Trump called for peace.

"Tell white supremacists, tell the neo-Nazis, tell the KKK, tell them all we've had enough of it".
