Two St. Louis attorneys went viral late Sunday after videos and photos circulated on social media showing the lawyers pointing firearms at Black Lives Matter protesters.

Video showed the personal injury lawyers shout and point their firearms at the demonstrators, who had forced their way into the private, gated community.

Another video, taken from a livestream, showed the crowd of people enter the private street, which is technically trespassing.

Video showed that protesters sought to de-escalate tensions by urging other demonstrators to keep moving and ignore the firearm-wielding couple.

The crowd of demonstrators that marched through the private neighborhood numbered approximately 500, the Associated Press reported.

After the incident went viral, the attorneys’ names were published online and there were calls for the lawyers to be criminally charged.

“A fellow lawyer from Missouri, a guy I know named Mark McCloskey committed an assault tonight in STL by pointing his AR 15 at peaceful protesters. He should be arrested and charged with assault immediately. The MO Bar should revoke their licenses,” Don Calloway wrote on Twitter.

Another lawyer claimed the attorneys broke a Missouri law prohibiting exhibiting “any weapon readily capable of lethal use in an angry or threatening manner.”

    It shows the ignorance of the mob. They did not assault anyone. They had no business being there. They should be cited for trespassing.

    Somebody’s going to get killed. One flip of someone’s mental switch can set the semi automatic off and hurt or kill scores of people. If he/she has multiple clips there could be a massacre. BLM does not care about who dies. Any day now.

    I feel like Missouri of all places doesn’t have a law in place like the one stated above. That it’s illegal to wield a gun in a threatening manner when your property is literally being trespassed by hundreds of people. I personally think he was within his rights to shoot them if they placed a single toe on his property.
