A white man confronted a group of black teenagers on their bikes and pulled a gun on the group. He proceeded to call them racist epithets after a woman accused one of the youngsters of riding over her foot.

The group was taking part in an unsanctioned anti-gun violence "wheels up, guns down" event. The event was held in Miami, Florida earlier this week.
