A diner pulled a gun on armed Black Lives Matter protesters when they stormed the outdoor area of an upscale Louisville restaurant on the day of the Kentucky Derby...

And the violence that unfolded following the confrontation has shocked so many people.

Now, the incident unfolded on Saturday in Louisville.


A group of armed Black Lives Matter protestors were marching during the 147th Kentucky Derby over Breonna Taylor's death last year at the hands of police during a raid at her home.

Footage uploaded to social media by a reporter for the Louisville Courier-Journal shows a large group of protestors confronting diners who were eating at a nearby restaurant...


And things were quick to turn ugly.

It appears as if a diner was taunting one of the protestors...


And a waitress working at the restaurant was seen shouting "No!" and trying to stand between the pair, who appeared to be aggressively confronting each other.

And then...


An older man dressed in a blue shirt - who was also dining at the restaurant - pulled out a small handgun.

The man was calmly arguing with several protestors all while holding out his gun...

And although he didn't shoot it, the presence of his gun was causing even more unrest among the group.

Louisville Metro Police spokesperson Alicia Smiley confirmed to Fox News that the protesters were also armed...


And it's a miracle that nobody was injured in the commotion.

Smiley said a restaurant worker described "multiple armed protesters entered the restaurant property, which included outdoor dining space."


"During the encounter both patrons and protesters brandished firearms."

At least 5 people ended up being arrested in connection to the incident.


Charges include possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, failure to disperse, and evading police, TMZ reported.

Smiley confirmed:


"The arrests of that group were made after protesters repeatedly blocked the roadway despite officers giving multiple verbal requests for them to utilize the sidewalk."

The diner who drew his gun has not been arrested, it is believed.
