Former high school teacher arrested for brandishing gun at ‘Families Belong Together’ rally
A former high school teacher is in custody after police said he pulled out a gun at a “Families Belong Together” immigration rally in Huntsville, Alabama.
Al.com reports that Shane Ryan Sealy was charged with menacing and reckless endangerment.
Huntsville City Schools’ spokesperson said the 34-year-old is no longer a teacher with the school system.
Mississippi News Now reports rally organizer Ava Caldwell says Sealy said, “I will shoot everybody here.”
Police said no shots were fired and no one was hurt. The protest was against the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance policy regarding immigration.
Thousands marched in cities across the country in solidarity with those families who were separated at the border.
