This is the moment a Trump supporter pulled a gun on Antifa protesters after his truck was vandalized during a caravan past the capitol building in Salem.

Video captured demonstrators spraying paint across the windscreen of the truck, and smashing the tail lights, before the driver steps out with a gun and points it directly at anti-fascist protesters.

The driver, who was wearing an American flag sweater, was almost immediately apprehended by police who ordered him to drop to the ground and let go of his weapon.

The tense moment was one of many clashes between left-wing, anti-fascist demonstrators and right-wing protesters Sunday near the Oregon State Capitol grounds in Salem.

The Statesman Journal reports that protesters, many wearing black masks and helmets and some wearing anti-fascist stickers, stood for a few hours waiting for a caravan from a right-wing rally in Sandy, Oregon, that was expected to arrive at the Capitol.

The ‘Freedom’ rally was advertised as an event to honor those who ‘fought for our freedoms.’

Protesters on the sidewalks and in the street in Salem threw objects at a number of vehicles that drove by the Capitol with American flags, breaking some vehicles’ windows.

At least three people were arrested including Andrew Alan Foy, 34 for second-degree disorderly conduct and second-degree criminal trespass, Nathan McFarland, 33, for second-degree disorderly conduct and Anthony Villaneda,18, for five counts of pointing a laser.

Salem police closed Court Street due to ‘ongoing reports of criminal activity’ and announced over a loudspeaker that if people did not disperse immediately they would use ‘impact weapons, munitions and tear gas’ against them, and protesters could be arrested.

Earlier that day, at 2:30 p.m, police tweeted that they expected 150-200 people who would be ‘heavily armed’. 

‘The risk of violence has increased as the opposing protestors are expected to arrive in large numbers.

We have received reports that vehicles driving past the capitol are being struck with balloons filled with paint and green lasers being pointed at drivers.’

If (possible), avoid traveling (through) streets around the capitol mall,’ officials tweeted.

Anyone observing criminal behavior should immediately move to a safe location & call 911.’
