According to reports, police used crowd control munitions in an attempt to disperse the mob.
Later, a Black Lives Matter protester caught on fire after a fire bomb exploded near his feet. Police were unable to help when rioters push them back.

Meanwhile, footage from New York showed demonstrators harassing diners at several restaurants in Rochester. On Friday, a group of activists chanting “Black Lives Matter” descended on the outdoor diners.
They announced they were there to “shut the party down.” Some diners were prompted to flee the scene as demonstrators flipped tables and chairs, shattering plates and glasses.
