Altercation Between Protesters And Police 00:39

WILKINSBURG (KDKA) - An altercation happened at a rally-justice walk for Jim Rogers in Wilkinsburg.

Protesters have told KDKA that Jim Rogers' niece, Diamond, was speaking at the rally and that's when they said police officers told them to disperse and get out of the street.

Diamond said no and that's when protesters allege that police responded with "violence" and arrested two people.

Justice For Jim Rogers said in a statement provided to KDKA:

"Anyone on the street walking with us who saw this incident can see the only ones who respond with violence are the police."

We have reached out to police and are waiting for a response.
