The violence erupted in Charlottesville on Saturday leading to casualties. Earlier in the day, thousands of demonstrators have joined the so-called Unite the Right rally in protest for the removal of a statue honoring Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, which glorifies the era of slavery as critics say.
In response to the clashes, Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency in Charlottesville.
