CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Glass litters the sidewalks of Over-the-Rhine the morning after Friday’s protest over George Floyd’s death.

The protest began peacefully but turned violent around 11 p.m., after which protesters began breaking the windows of storefronts in the neighborhood, mostly those belonging to retail businesses.

Police responded in riot gear with what appeared to be smoke bombs and flash grenades. Loud, sometimes physical confrontations were commonplace through 2 a.m.
