By 1 a.m., there were still several hundred demonstrators surrounding the North Precinct. Police declared an unlawful assembly using their sound truck and told the crowd to leave the area immediately or they would be subject to arrest.

About 20 minutes later, officers said they began breaking up the crowd. Some people tried fighting with officers. Police said some demonstrators shot officers with paintball rounds, causing officers to not be able to see out of their face shields.

Police said someone launched a mortar onto the roof of the North Precinct building at 1:40 a.m. and at that point, officers began using crowd control munitions.
