Reports indicate that a small group of pro-Trump supporters had gathered for a free speech rally near the Civic Center/UN Plaza when a larger crowd of anti-Trump demonstrators reportedly showed up and scuffles then ensued between the rival protesters. Pro-Trump demonstrators reportedly left the scene; however, security forces deployed tear gas against members of the counter-demonstration group who continued protesting on Market Street.

A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are expected in the vicinity of any demonstration. Further unrest is to be anticipated in the coming days.
