The incident took place on Sunday afternoon as hundreds of protesters walked down a private street, beating drums and demanding Mayor Lyda Krewson resign. Krewson had previously read aloud on Facebook-Live the names and addresses of the protesters who had petitioned him. The mayor later issued an apology.

According to journalist Daniel Shular, who was present in St. Louis, about 500 protesters corrected through Portland Place, known as a private street, to bypass nearby roadblocks that blocked access to Krewson’s house.

- The door next to the gate leading to Portland Place was unlocked and protesters went through it to straighten through the neighborhood and go to Krewson's house, Shular told CNN.

According to Shular, a man and woman who were later identified as Mark and Patricia McCloskey came out of the building with guns. Patricia McCloskey is seen in the videos pointing her handgun at the protesters.

The couple told police they heard loud noises from the street. As they went to find out the source of the votes, they noticed a large number of breaking an iron gate that read “no passage” and “private road,” the couple told police.

The woman was seen pointing several times at protesters with a gun.

According to the couple, they ordered the crowd to leave the private area, after which the crowd shouted outrage and threatened to harm the couple. The couple also claimed some of the protesters were armed.

The couple's lawyer told CNN that peaceful protesters were not a problem for McCloskey.

- On the contrary, they waited and supported the protesters' message. The violence, destruction of property and threatened with aggression perpetrated by a few people who moved peacefully among the protesters led to serious concern and fear.

According to Avery Risch, a protester present, the organizers of the protest had warned the armed couple of those who followed. Protesters were urged to move forward and not stay with the McCloskey couple.

Nor did Risch notice that the gate had been broken. However, the Facebook-Live described later shows how the right gate door is crooked and lying on the ground.

The prosecutor's office is also investigating the incidents.
