Roughly two dozen protestors had gathered by 2:50 p.m. for the "Say Their Name" protest on Market Square in Bloomsburg, and the crowd is growing.

Police have set barriers at Market Street, and changed the traffic light at the intersection to blinking to keep vehicles moving through the intersection, since turning is not possible.

The protest in the wake of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis is meant to denounce deadly police brutality, organizers have said.

We'll have more updates as the protest continues.
