12 officers have been injured after the second consecutive night of violent demonstrations in front of a Washington D.C. police station.
Protests broke out on Wednesday night after a vigil for 20-year-old Karon Hylton Brown, who died while trying to evade the police. Demonstrators at the protest threw rocks, bricks and fireworks at officers. They have blamed police for the death of Hylton-Brown.
Authorities initially tried to stop the 20-year-old for not wearing a helmet while riding a moped-scooter, when he fled and collided with another vehicle.
Hylton-Brown’s family took part in the demonstrations.
