Hundreds are gathering in Westchester for a protest against police-involved incidents, including the George Floyd incident in Minneapolis.

The "March For Justice, March In Solidarity" protest started at around 2 p.m. Sunday, May 31 near City Hall on South Broadway in Yonkers.

Protestors chanted, "No Justice, No Peace," and "Black Lives Matter."

By around 4:45 p.m., a smaller group of protestors made their way toward the Saw Mill River Parkway, before walking eastbound toward Yonkers Avenue.

The protestors have remained off the parkway, but police have closed the southbound lanes in that area.

Yonkers Police and Westchester County Police are at the scene.
