Demonstrations were held all over California to show solidarity with the victim who was killed after a vehicle plowed into a crowd of protesters at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Part of what made the case become a federal one was that the chief suspect, 20-year-old James Alex Fields, Jr, crossed state lines, travelling from OH to Virginia.

The driver, 20-year-old James Alex Fields Jr., has been charged with second degree murder.

According to the Virginia State Police, three other people have been arrested on charges including disorderly conduct, misdemeanor assault and battery and carrying a concealed handgun.

A auto then plowed into a crowd of people peacefully protesting at the rally.
