Confrontations between police and protesters broke out Tuesday night in the streets of Manchester, New Hampshire, as people set off fireworks and allegedly threw objects at police.

Some who attended an earlier, largely peaceful protest, with upwards of 700 people denouncing police brutality against black people amid outrage over the death of George Floyd, were involved in violent riots around 11 p.m.

"Disruptive protesters" were "screaming at officers and calling names," on South Willow Street, the Manchester Police Department wrote on their Twitter account.

The scene was cleared by around 1:30 a.m.

Ten adults and three juveniles were arrested on various charges, police said.

Mutual aid was provided by the New Hampshire State Police, the Southern New Hampshire Special Operations Unit, the Nashua Police Department, the National Guard, the Hillsborough Sheriff and the FBI.
