@NPR — White Gun-Wielding St. Louis Couple Reportedly Indicted By Grand Jury

(NPR) — Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the white St. Louis couple charged in July with waving firearms at Black Lives Matter protesters, have been indicted by a grand jury, the AP reports.

“I've been told they've been charged with exhibiting a firearm and tampering with evidence,” Joel Schwartz, who represents Mark and Patricia McCloskey told NPR.

The charges stem from a confrontation between the McCloskeys, a white couple who are both personal injury attorneys and have a history of litigation with their neighbors, and a group of mostly Black protesters on June 28. The demonstrators entered the wealthy enclave en route to the home of St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson, who lives nearby.
