A Maryland man putting up a Black Lives Matter sign in his yard was arrested after he was charged with firing a shotgun at Trump supporters driving by in a pickup truck over the weekend.

WJV-TV reports that police have booked 50-year old Douglas Kuhn.

Neal Houk and his son said they honked their horn at a neighbor putting up a Black Lives Matter sign.

‘He reached down. He had a shotgun right there, pulled it out and pointed it right at,’ Houk said. ‘And we were in disbelief. Next thing we heard was a shotgun blast.’



No one was hurt in the incident.

Police located a 12-gauge shotgun and took Kuhn into custody.

“For someone to take it that far, you gotta be filled with a lot of rage to go out and put a sign up and carry a 12-gauge with you,” Todd said.

Kuhn is facing assault and reckless endangerment charges and a felony firearm charge.
