It appeared to be a protest over Rose's death, the teenager shot and killed by an East Pittsburgh police officer last month.

Police say they also blocked an ambulance from getting through, but officers cleared a path.

One person tried to drive through the protesters, but the car was surrounded.

Police took the driver into custody, but it's not clear if they're facing charges.


The protesters eventually marched toward Market Square and Liberty Avenue.
