SAN ANTONIO, TX – According to KSAT, three San Antonio police officers were injured during racial justice protests Saturday night.
According to San Antonio Police Chief William McManus, a handful of violent participants in a group of otherwise peaceful protesters threw bricks and bottles at police officers.
One Facebook post showed a police officer with a head wound that required stitches.
McManus emphasized that the organizers of the protests were not to blame for the violence.
McManus said, “(The organizers) said they were going to start at 5, march to police headquarters, light candles, have a vigil and disperse at 6:30. They did just that. The remaining people were the agitators.”
Nationwide protests ignited in major cities around the country after footage of George Floyd dying at the hands of an ex-Minneapolis police officer went viral.
