About 150 to 200 people in Santa Ana Saturday night protested the in-custody death of George Floyd, with some throwing fireworks at police officers, authorities said.

The protest began about 8 p.m. at McFadden Avenue and Bristol Street,
said Santa Ana police Corporal Anthony Bertagna. Officers were on hand to monitor the protest, but were not making arrests, Bertagna said.

Protest organizers did not obtain a permit or agree to follow established rules for demonstrations, but police learned of the action in advance through social media.

No injuries were reported.
