ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — Police in Alexandria are investigating after a man armed with a shotgun protested outside the home of a northern Virginia lawmaker.
The protester, Brandon Howard of Hopewell, told news outlets he was conducting a one-man peaceful protest Saturday as he stood outside the home of Democratic Delegate Mark Levine.
Howard was angered over gun-control legislation sponsored by Levine.
Levine says he believes Howard may have broken a law to publish someone’s name with the intent to intimidate or harass them.
Howard, who is chairman of Hopewell’s Republican Committee, posted a Facebook video with Levine’s home address urging others to join his protest.
