Local News

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — A group of about 50 people gathered at the State Capitol and began marching throughout downtown Sacramento Saturday night to protest killings by police.

Police declared an unlawful assembly around 9:40 p.m., and the group dispersed shortly after 11 p.m.

According to the Sacramento Police Department, four officers were hurt after they were “sprayed with an unknown liquid irritant.” No arrests were made.

Earlier in the day, people gathered at the old Sacramento City Hall to honor George Floyd, Daunte Wright and Adam Toledo.

The protest is reportedly a separate event in solidarity with 13-year-old Adam Toledo and Daunte Wright.

Sacramento police said there were reports of some vandalism.

There are rolling road closures near 20th and K streets. Police advise residents to avoid the area.

People also took to the streets earlier in the week to protest the killing of Daunte Wright.
