FBI Launches Hunt For Domestic Terrorists At Charlottesville Rally. Here’s The Tip Line

The FBI has launched a tip line requesting any information on white supremacists responsible for the violence that engulfed Charlottesville, Va. last Saturday.

Three people were killed and several injured after a large gathering of white supremacists and far right demonstrators descended onto the small college town to protest the removal of a confederate monument.

Heather Heyer, 32, was killed and at least 19 were injured when a car drove into a crowd of counterdemonstrators. The driver, a 20-year-old Ohio man, is accused of having ties to white supremacist groups.

The FBI has since launched a website and a hotline, 1-800-CALL-FBI, accepting tips and information on the violence.

The Justice Department opened up a federal investigation into the deadly events in Charlottesville on Saturday.

“The violence and deaths in Charlottesville strike at the heart of American law and justice. When such actions arise from racial bigotry and hatred, they betray our core values and cannot be tolerated,” the department said in a statement.
