NORCO (CNS) - A curfew was in effect in Norco this morning after clashes between protesters demonstrating against police brutality and a group of counter-protesters on Monday.
A local emergency was declared and the curfew went into effect at 6 p.m. Tuesday and expired at 6 a.m. today, according to a statement from the city of Norco.
During the curfew, no one is allowed in any public place, with the exception of police, fire, emergency or military personnel, anyone traveling to work, members of the media, anyone seeking or providing medical care, essential employees and the homeless, the emergency order said.
The move comes after about 50 people rallied Monday in support of Black Lives Matter at Neal Snipes Park, at Hamner Avenue and Fifth Street, then marched to Norco City Hall. D
