Amid the chaos of a canceled “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia attended by white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and other members of the so-called alt-right on Saturday, a man who has now been arrested drove a car directly into other vehicles and a crowd of people protesting the march.

According to the AP, at least one person died, and 26 others were treated at local hospitals.

The Washington Post identified the suspect as 20-year-old James Alex Fields of Ohio, and wrote authorities have booked him “on suspicion of second-degree murder, malicious wounding, failure to stop for an accident involving a death, and hit and run.” He is being held without bail.
