Atlanta police say 8 arrests were made during protests Tuesday night in Atlanta.

What started as a peaceful protest at Woodruff Park apparently erupted into destructive behavior.

Police say  their Zone 5 precinct was spray painted and a window was shattered.

The protest was in reaction to the shooting of a black man on Sunday by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Jacob Blake was seen in video walking towards an SUV with the sound of shots being fired.

Blake’s family say he is paralyzed after being shot 7 times.
