There is no word from any other officials on how this will be implemented at this time. The announcement comes after protests over the death of George Floyd became violent in several cities, including Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh Police Chief Scott Schubert attributed much of yesterday’s violence to ANTIFA and white male anarchists.
A press conference from Governor Wolf about the statewide protests will air on CBSN Pittsburgh at 1:30 p.m. Sunday.
