This comes after Wednesday night’s protest in honor of George Floyd, who died in the custody of a Minneapolis police officer.

Protesters gathered in the area of Union and McLean in Midtown, which was blocked Wednesday evening. Hours after the protest began, Memphis police donned riot gear and worked to disperse the crowd. Shelby County Commissioner Tami Sawyer said at least five people were arrested.

This is a developing story.

We will have more at 10 p.m.
