Protesters Block Fairfax District Intersection

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - A group of about 75 protesters gathered in the Fairfax district and knelt in an intersection for more than nine minutes to mark the guilty verdicts reached in the Derek Chauvin trial, but no arrests were reported this morning.

Demonstrators moved into the intersection of Beverly Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue about 9:45 p.m. Tuesday as Los Angeles police officers in riot gear stood nearby monitoring the crowd.

Shortly after the group finished its demonstration and began marching eastward on Beverly Boulevard toward Pan Pacific Park, officers pulled out of the area as the crowd followed them, yelling profanities.

A police commander at the scene told NBC4 there was no vandalism to any police vehicles during or after the demonstration.

The crowd dispersed a short time later.
