SPOKANE, Wash. — Black Lives Matter protesters gathered in downtown Spokane on Monday, marking the second day of protests in the area.

One woman speaking to the crowd asked protesters to gather until 10 p.m, but encouraged them to keep their efforts peaceful. 4 News Now’s Kyle Simchuck has been in the area all night and said demonstrators have done just that. The group began to disperse shortly after 10 p.m.

Meantime, Mayor Nadine Woodward issued an immediate curfew for a portion of downtown Spokane. In a tweet, Spokane Police said the curfew was enacted in response to a group of “agitators” who were throwing rocks at drivers.
