CASPER, Wyo. — A group of protesters are marching in downtown Casper on the afternoon of Tuesday, June 2.

The group carried signs like “Black Lives Matter” and “White Silence=Violence.” The Casper protest comes in the wake of the killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer.

Reporters on scene said there appears to be about three dozen people participating. Some cars passing by encouraged the group while other vehicles revved their engines and appeared to drive aggressively in response to the march.

One vehicle which appeared to drive in such a manner was pulled over by an unmarked police vehicle near Racca’s Pizzeria.

A protest is also planned for Wednesday in Casper and a march and vigil is set for Friday.

Tuesday’s protest was on-going as of 2:05 pm.
