A Trump supporting bar owner in Omaha is seen in this video being attacked. At first, his 68-year-old father is pushed to the ground. Then the bar owner is seen talking to a group of people, possibly protesters, and informed them he was armed. However, despite him being armed - and it looked like he was backing up at one point, one of the people in the crowd attacked him.
The bar owner appears to fire warning shots. But, one person jumped on his back. That was a 22-year-old - who despite the man firing two shots, still jumped on the guys back and tackled him.
The bar owner then fired a shot over his shoulder to get the man off of him. However, that shot hit the man in the neck and he passed away.

After this all happened - the bar owner did not face any charges. It appears that the DA thought it was self-defense after seeing videos and getting any evidence he needed to make a decision.
That wasn't the end of it. A grand jury later made several charges against him.
It is believe that the bar owner thought there was no way he would have a fair trial, and he was allegedly facing all sorts of threats since he had not been charged at the time. He ended up taking his own life.

The bar owner turned out to be a military veteran who said he was more bothered or anxious over this than his time serving in the military. He also apparently had suffered about two brain injuries and felt like he was in some sort of warzone while protests were going on and he had to keep an eye on his business... or risk losing it if looters showed up.

"The family of Jake Gardner has asked Tom Monaghan and myself to share the news of his death today, at his own hand," attorney Stu Dornan said at a press conference Sunday.
The Hillsboro Police Department in Oregon is conducting an investigation into a cause of death after finding Gardner's body outside a medical clinic, according to a news release.
Dornan said Gardner, 38, was scheduled to return to Omaha on Sunday night to face charges in the death of 22-year-old James Scurlock on May 30. A grand jury charged Gardner on Tuesday with manslaughter, attempted assault, making terroristic threats and using a gun to commit a felony.
