The family stopped at Forks Outfitters to get supplies, and were confronted by “seven or eight carloads of people in the grocery store parking lot” who “repeatedly asked them if they were antifa protesters,” according to a press release by Sgt. Ed Anderson. “The family told the people they weren’t associated with any such group and were just camping.”
When the family left the parking lot, they were trailed by “at least four vehicles,” the Peninsula Daily News reports. The family said that “two of the vehicles had people in them carrying what appeared to be semi-automatic rifles.”
The family reached their camp site, but the sound of gunshots and power saws down the road made them decide to leave. As they were trying to drive away, they found that someone had sawed down trees in order to trap them in the site so that they couldn’t get out.
Local high schoolers helped clear the roadway for the family.
