A St. Louis couple garnered national attention Sunday night after photos and videos of them pointing guns at a group of more than 100 protesters outside their home went viral. One brandished a semi automatic rifle and the other pointed a pistol at demonstrators on the sidewalk.

The protestors were marching to the home of St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson Sunday to demand that she resign. This came after she read the names and addresses of people who support defunding the city's police department. Photojournalist and MU graduate student Daniel Schuler posted a video of the heated confrontation to Twitter while covering the event. It went viral with more than 43,000 retweets and 16 million views. KBIA's Trevor Hook talked with Daniel about the standoff.
