Around 7:30 p.m., public safety said protesters returned to their starting point and began to disperse. There are no incidents to report.

Last month, demonstrators gathered on N. Euclid Avenue and Broad Street. They called the relocation of the Zone 5 police station an over-policing of the neighborhood.

After several years of renovation, Pittsburgh Police were preparing to reoccupy the Zone 5 police station in East Liberty, not far from where police and protesters clashed in June.
