At least 400 people gathered Saturday at the sheriff’s Santa Clarita Valley station to protest the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis on Monday.
The protest appeared peaceful, with demonstrators eventually heading from the station at 23740 Magic Mountain Parkway to the Westfield Valencia Town Center at 24201 W. Valencia Blvd.
The city of Santa Clarita issued a tweet at about 1:30 p.m. reporting that protesters had blocked the intersection of McBean Parkway and Valencia Boulevard and asked the public to avoid the area.
The protest broke up at about 2:45 p.m., said Deputy Morgan Arteaga of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau. A group of 10 to 15 people remained outside the sheriff’s station at 3:30 p.m., she said.
No arrests were made, Arteaga said.
