A group of young protesters marched through the Fan District to the Lee Monument to Clay and Jackson streets in Jackson Ward.

At least one person was arrested and one protester was carrying a firearm.

Roughly 200 attendees participated in the rally, which lasted around two hours. At times demonstrators could be heard chanting "cops and the Klan go hand in hand" and that it's time for Richmond to take down the statues.

Police officers followed the protest in cars with blue lights on.

The Richmond Police Department tweeted at 10:21 p.m. that protesters were walking down west on West Broad Street near the intersection with Laurel Street.

At 10:49 p.m., police tweeted that the group had turned on Lombardy Street and appear headed for Monument Avenue.

The Lee Monument is on Monument Avenue at Allen Avenue, one block west of Lombardy.

At 11:12 p.m., police said the protesters were marching east on Monument Avenue away from the Lee Monument.

Several protesters stopped journalists from filming and cursed at anyone filming it, telling them to instead film the police.

By 12:20 am the protest had largely broken up.
