Protesters in Tallahassee gathered on the lawn of the Old Capitol Building to protest the death of George Floyd along with other local acts of violence on Saturday afternoon.
Protesters eventually made their way into the street walking into the intersection of Monroe Street and Apalachee Parkway. Police blocked off the intersection and rerouted vehicles.
As the crowd continued up North on Monroe Street they surrounded a red truck. The truck accelerated and hit several protesters.
Police released a statement about the incident but did not say whether or not the individual was arrested.
“This morning, as a peaceful protest was occurring downtown along Monroe Street near the Capitol building, a vehicle proceeded into the crowd. The driver was immediately detained. As of this time, there are no known injuries.
This is an extremely tense, emotional time across the nation. Mutual respect among all of us is vital. The Tallahassee Police Department supports the nonviolent gathering of protesters and will uphold their constitutional right to do so, while making every effort to maintain a safe environment for our community. We are asking anyone with information, including video, to please contact TPD. Once the investigation is complete, all information will be forwarded to the State Attorney.
Additional details will be made available as the investigation into this morning’s incident continues.”
– Chief Lawrence Revell
