A small local protest is set for 5:00 this evening in Brenham, over the death in Minneapolis of Houston-native George Floyd.
Floyd was killed last week—a Minneapolis police officer has been arrested and charged with murder, while three other officers have been fired. Demonstration—some violent—have taken place throughout the nation.
Brenham Police say they expect tonight’s local protest to be small and peaceful. The event begins at 5:00 p.m. and will take place on the sidewalk in front of Henderson Park, across from the American Legion building.
Brenham Police Captain Lloyd Powell said local police do not expect a large turnout and will likely not need a large police presence.
