On Sunday, May 31, around 7:40 p.m., a big group of people met at the Rudy Loop to take an interest in a peaceful walk on Atlantic Avenue.
Around 9:45 p.m., reports state that a little segment of marchers started to take an interest in criminal conduct bringing about police authorization. At 10:32 p.m., the Virginia Beach Police Department pronounced the get-together an Unlawful Assembly, mentioning the members to dispense.
When police shaped a line, dissenters beginning tossing rocks at police, and the primary poisonous gas/pepper ball was tossed. Police at that point moved in with substantial vehicles and moved protesters back.
There is as yet broad police movement at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. Access to vehicles and people on foot is being confined right now and all residents and guests are mentioned to avoid the region.
Police say their next report will prompt when it is safe to come back to the region.
