As of 7 p.m., a line of officers with batons and shields along 14th Street NW blocked entry to K Street while smoke still curled in the air from a fire set by protesters. Hundreds were still gathered at the intersection.
Someone hurled a bottle at the police line, which fell several yards short of making contact. The officers yelled at protesters to move back and several did.
A person set another garbage can on fire, while another lit a Trump flag on fire from the flames as the crowd shouted, “Trump is a garbage fire.”
A half-dozen Trump supporters in “Make America Great Again” hats charged at protesters shouting “USA, USA,” then left after a brief verbal confrontation.
Dozens of protesters left the intersection around 7:10 p.m., shouting “Crash the Mall!”
