AUSTIN, Texas - Supporters of President Donald Trump are gathering at the State Capitol to rally and voice their concerns over the election results.
When Biden supporters showed up at the Texas State Capitol, demonstrations got heated, but not violent.
Late Wednesday afternoon, the Capitol grounds were shut down to the public to "maintain public order." Texas DPS, Austin police, and highway patrol stood by, carefully watching confrontations and verbal threats.
Several protestors held guns, but none were fired at the State Capitol. Most demonstrators said they were seeking some sort of election clarity.
While Trump supporters gathered at the State Capitol, more stormed the U.S. Capitol, causing a lockdown. Protesters breached barricades and broke windows amid violent clashes between President Donald Trump's supporters and Capitol police.
