For the fourth day in a row, groups of people have gathered downtown Pittsburgh to protest the death of George Floyd.

Protesters started at Market Square, worked their way to the Allegheny County Jail where they sat for about an hour, then moved to the 10th Street Bridge to the South Side and East Carson Street.

East Carson Street has been closed.

After a short time, the crowd has turned around and is heading back over the 10th Street Bridge towards downtown.
