St. Louis lawyer insists 'death was coming through his gate'

A Missouri lawyer seen with his wife brandishing guns at Black Lives Matter protesters outside their home last weekend has claimed that most of the aggressors were not people of color and he didn't imagine that the incident would become a 'race issue'. 

He also insisted that he 'thought what was coming through [his] gate was death', during an interview with Good Morning Britain on Thursday morning. 

Mark McCloskey, 63, and his wife Patricia, 61, were filmed on Sunday evening drawing a AR-15 and handgun on protesters outside their $1.5million mansion in to a well-to-do St.

Louis neighborhood.
