Police are investigating a fatal vehicle crash that took place this afternoon at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville as a homicide and have charged a suspect with second-degree murder in the killing.

The auto attack occurred around 1pm, soon after a state of emergency was declared in the city for the clashes between participants in the march and those opposed to it.

Video taken in the afternoon after the demonstration was shut down shows crowds walking along a downtown Charlottesville street as several cars move slowly along the same avenue.

Videos show the silver auto reversing and fleeing from the scene with a windshield covered in what appears to be blood.


Warning: The video contains graphic images.

Charlottesville Police say the suspect is in custody.

In a statement to the press, officials acknowledged that three people had died in Charlottesville today.

One person died and 19 were injured Saturday when a vehicle rammed a crowd of counterprotesters gathered to oppose a "Unite the Right" rally of white nationalist and other right-wing groups. By Saturday afternoon, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency. He did not specifically address that a death had occurred amid the demonstrations, but denounced the "egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides".
