The planned rally had already been shut down following bottle-throwing clashes between alt-right demonstrators, counter-protesters, white nationalists, neo-Nazis and supporters of Black Lives Matter.

Two people were killed after a helicopter crashed on Saturday seven miles southwest of Charlottesville, in the state of Virginia.

In what they called a pro-white demonstration, torch-bearing white nationalists marched Friday night through the university campus and gathered around the statue of General Robert E. Lee, a Confederate Civil War hero.

Virginia state police identified the two officers who died in the helicopter crash as 48-year-old Lieutenant H. Jay Cullen and Trooper-Pilot Berke M.M. Bates.

The FBI is launching an investigation into the auto crash. Pepper spray - used, reportedly, by both counter-protesters and those attending the rally - filled the air, according to local media reports.

In Boston, Massachusettes, protesters held signs that read "Unite against racist hate & sexist bigotry". "Violence like this will solve nothing and will only beget more violence and sow more division".
