Maryland man erecting BLM sign arrested after allegedly firing shotgun at Trump supporters who honked passing by
[WashingtonExaminer] A man erecting a Black Lives Matter sign in his yard has been arrested after allegedly firing a shotgun at President Trump supporters driving by his property.
Police say Douglas Kuhn, 50, fired his shotgun at Neil Houk and his son after they honked the horn while passing Kuhn’s property in Kingsville, Maryland, on Saturday afternoon, according to CBS 13 Baltimore.
"He reached down. He had a shotgun right there, pulled it out, and pointed it right at ... and we were in disbelief. Next thing we heard was a shotgun blast," Houk said about the incident.
"We see what’s going on in the country, and I really didn’t expect it right here at home," he added. "We were rattled. I'm shaking just talking about it."
Kuhn is being held without bond, charged with multiple assault and reckless endangerment charges, as well as a felony firearm charge.
If convicted, Kuhn could spend up to 100 years in prison, but Houck says he doesn’t want him to be punished and that the honking was "good-natured."
