ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — St. Petersburg Police are investigating after a protester showed a gun during a demonstration on Saturday night.
The incident, which was posted to social media, showed a series of confrontations between protesters and smaller groups of counter-protesters.
According to a statement from Police, a protester pulled out a small knife and showed it to a counter-protester late Saturday. A counter-protester responded by showing a handgun, police said.
No shots were fired and no one was injured during the incident.
This came three nights after a video captured by the Tampa Bay Times showed a number of protesters on Beach Drive chanting at a table of diners. During the incident, a few protesters sit down at the table as a woman states “this is my table” and tries to get the protesters to move.
No arrests were made or citations issued in that incident.
The protests began Wednesday night in the hours following the grand jury decision in the Breonna Taylor case.
