White nationalists carrying weapons and using the Nazi salute interrupted the Detroit Pride parade on Saturday, according to the Hill.

At the parade, a member of the National Socialist Movement was photographed apparently urinating on an Israeli flag, Fox news reported. Members of the same group were photographed tearing apart a Pride flag.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, NSM is one of the largest neo-Nazi organizations in the United States.

There were no reported injuries or violence between the group and parade goers.

That day, there was a false report of an active shooter at the Washington DC Pride parade. While many attendees felt panicked, officials did not confirm that any shots were fired.
