Two demonstrations were held in Hollywood Saturday in memory of Breonna Taylor, who was fatally shot by police in her Louisville, Kentucky home one year ago, and whose death triggered angry protests nationwide.

Video from the scene showed protesters climbing onto a police car and helmeted officers taking up positions near Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street to contain about two dozen of the demonstrators.

There were also reports of vandalism in the area.

The Los Angeles Police Department’s Operations Center had few details, according to Officer D. Orris. There were calls for backup but it appeared the LAPD Hollywood Station was covering the situation, he said.

Memorials to Taylor were held in Hollywood at 11:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.
