The residents of Moore lined up across the street from the Westboro picketers in a counter-protest.
Westboro had a permit to hold a 30-minute protest, but the counter-protesters chased members of the Westboro Baptist Church away a few minutes past their limit, according to KFOR.
The Huffington Post posted a video uploaded by counter-protester that shows the Westboro picketers leaving after a few town residents started crossing the street:
“I was afraid of a riot really. I didn’t know how long Westboro would stay, which they were smart to leave," Moore resident Dan Eccles told KFOR.
Police kept counter-protesters from Westboro members as they were leaving, but did not make any arrests, according to KOCO News.
Shortly after Phelps' death, a Westboro Baptist Church protest at a Lorde concert in Kansas City was met with counter-protesters holding a sign that read, "sorry for your loss."
