WATCH: Protest Over Tate-Brown Shooting Turns Violent at Community Meeting

Earlier today, D.A. Seth Williams announced that no charges would be brought in the police shooting. Tensions were high.

Thursday night’s town hall on policing at Lawncrest Recreation Center was scheduled weeks before D.A. Seth Williams announced that he would not bring charges in the killing of Brandon Tate-Brown. But that announcement today assured that emotions would be running high, and just as soon as the meeting opened with the introduction of Commissioner Charles Ramsey, protest broke out. Things escalated from there. The meeting eventually resumed; numerous protesters were reportedly arrested, none requiring medical attention.
