Protesters in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, clashed with police Wednesday, exactly one year after police in the city fatally shot Alton Sterling.
Authorities used stun guns and tear gas to stop a group of roughly two dozen protesters who attempted to cross a barricade in front of Baton Rouge police headquarters, reports The Advocate, a daily newspaper based in the city.
At least seven people reportedly were arrested, including Krystal Mohammed, national chairwoman for the New Black Panther Party.
The protesters ― including Veda Washington, who is Sterling’s aunt ― marched to the police station from the Triple S Food Mart. The store is where Sterling, a 37-year-old father of five, was killed last year.
