Mood raw outside court where James Alex Fields Jr. has initial hearing

Hundreds of counter-protesters were marching in the Bay Area to decry racism in the wake of deadly violence that erupted at a white nationalist demonstration in Charlottesville, Virginia. They gathered in Richmond, Virginia to protest at the proposed removal of monuments harking back to the Confederacy - a group which opposed the abolition of slavery and sparked the USA civil war. At least one person was killed and 19 injured when a auto plowed into a group of counter-protesters.

The driver has been identified as James Alex Fields, 20, of OH, according to CNN. The driver, identified as James Alex Fields, Jr., is being charged with second degree murder and multiple other felony counts.

So far three people have died in the riots. One witness saw people being hurled in the air as the auto rushed through the crowd.

"On behalf of the Albemarle Board of Supervisors and County staff, I would like to offer honest condolences to the family, friends and coworkers of the victims of the violence that occurred in our community today", said Diantha McKeel, Chair of the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors.

But my message is clear: "We are stronger than you". He said they did a poor job controlling the chaos to allow free speech.

Shortly after, a Virginia State Police helicopter that officials said was assisting with the rally crashed outside Charlottesville, killing the pilot and a trooper.

The rally turned deadly after officials say a vehicle plowed into a group of people.
