PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - A large group of protesters gathered in East Liberty outside the former Zone 5 police station.
Pittsburgh Public Safety said a group gathered to demonstrate outside the former station at N. Euclid Avenue and Broad Street Tuesday afternoon.
The group of about 200 to 250 people marched through East Liberty, occasionally stopping and blocking traffic.
Drivers were urged to use caution and officials continued to say the protesters' route hadn't been shared with police.
Around 7:30 p.m., public safety said protesters returned to their starting point and began to disperse. There are no incidents to report.
Last month, demonstrators gathered on N. Euclid Avenue and Broad Street. They called the relocation of the Zone 5 police station an over-policing of the neighborhood.
After several years of renovation, Pittsburgh Police were preparing to reoccupy the Zone 5 police station in East Liberty, not far from where police and protesters clashed in June.
