Protesters march peacefully at Downtown Summerlin Sunday night
About 100 people gathered to protest Sunday night near Downtown Summerlin, while another protest against police brutality was happening on the Strip.
Police already were at the scene Sunday evening and were barricading the shopping center, as well as Red Rock Resort.
Some social media accounts were promoting a 7 p.m. protest at Downtown Summerlin, but many later discouraged people to attend because the mall is private property and because of the heavy police presence already at the scene.
As of about 7:30 p.m., fewer than a dozen people had gathered on a sidewalk near the mall, and police remained in the area, blocking all entrances.
“Get out of the street,” officers yelled as protesters fled. Protesters were seen holding their hands up and filming the officers.
By 8 p.m., about 100 people had gathered.
