Police in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, declared an unlawful assembly at least four times Wednesday night as a crowd gathered to protest a district attorney’s decision this week regarding the law enforcement fatal shooting of Andrew Brown Jr.

At least eight people were arrested, WITN-TV of Washington, North Carolina, reported. One suspect was apprehended after climbing on top of a police vehicle, the report said.

That protester was charged with injury to personal property and assault on a government official after he said he pushed an officer’s hand out of his face, the protester told WITN.

Other arrests followed police warnings to the crowd about blocking vehicular traffic in the area, according to the station.
