A White Army veteran has been charged with the attempted murder of a 15-year-old black girl during a tense confrontation at a Trump rally outside the Iowa Capitol last month.

Michael McKinney, 25, reportedly fired on a car with four black teenagers in Des Moines on December 6, hitting one in the leg.

The investigation found that a large group of white supporters of President Trump clashed with teenagers over political issues before the shooting began.

The girls were in a car when Trump supporters verbally abused them with racist insults.

The rioters surrounded the car before the driver backed up and hit a pickup truck.

At the time, McKinney, who was heavily armed and wearing a bulletproof vest, allegedly fired his gun at the girl’s car, according to the AP investigation.

McKinney later told police that he fired in self-defense. On social media, the military veteran showed his support for the far-right Proud Boys and announced that he was against the Black Lives Matter movement.

The victim was taken to a local hospital where she was treated for non-fatal injuries.

McKinney faces 25 years in prison if he is convicted and remains in prison on a $ 500,000 bond.
