A peaceful protest inspired by the killing of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis was held at the Madison County Courthouse on Monday and then spread out into downtown Huntsville.
There were some instances of violence, with a few members of the crowd throwing rocks at police and police responding with gas. This took place after hours of peaceful marching and after the protest's permitted time had expired and police asked the crowd to go home.
Floyd died on May 25.
The video of Floyd on the ground with a police officer pushing his knee into Floyd's neck while he becomes unresponsive and dies has enraged many in the country.
The officer has been arrested and charged with murder and manslaughter.
