Patricia McCloskey draws her firearm on protesters as they enter her neighborhood during a protest against St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson, in St. Louis, Missouri, June 28. Calls to phone numbers listed for the couple went unanswered, and their lawyer declined to make them available for an interview.
Kimberly Gardner, the city's chief prosecutor, said she was alarmed by the videos and that her office was investigating.
"We must protect the right to peacefully protest, and any attempt to chill it through intimidation or threat of deadly force will not be tolerated," she said in a statement. REUTERS/Lawrence Bryant
