Black Lives Matter protesters marched through Downtown Brooklyn Tuesday evening as part of the nationwide outcry over the police killing of an unarmed black man, George Floyd, in Minneapolis.

The march began at Barclay’s Center shortly after the 8:00pm curfew went into effect.

Protesters in Brooklyn march toward the Manhattan Bridge

Around 280 people were arrested that day in New York City, but protests were almost entirely peaceful in Brooklyn. The march ended up on the Manhattan Bridge but was blocked by NYPD at the mouth of the bridge on the Manhattan side.

Protesters, however, eventually were allowed off the bridge after a long standoff.

Almost every major city has seen protests since George Floyd was killed.
